Abundance vs. Scarcity
August 8, 2013 4 Comments
If you are unfamiliar with the term “abundance”, it is safe to say you are not living your life to the fullest potential. In terms of polarity, there are two extremes of “vibrations” that the entire universe you exist in is run on. The lowest vibration can be termed “scarcity”, while the opposite highest extreme can be labeled abundance.
n.1. A great or plentiful amount.2. Fullness to overflowing: “My thoughts . . . are from the abundance of my heart” (Thomas De Quincey).3. Affluence; wealth.4. Chemistry The amount of an isotope of an element that exists in nature, usually expressed as a percentage of the total amount of all isotopes of the element.
Your default vibration dictates the “reality” you experience on a day to day basis. While we all exist on the same three dimensional plane, the “reality” we each experience varies for each individual. In essence, everything we can see, feel, and touch is all the same, yet perceived vastly different across the range of individual humans perceiving them. For example, some people see opportunities in challenges while others shy away from perceived difficulty and hardship.
The abundance vibration entails seeing the positive in absolutely everything, no matter the “perceived” difficulty and challenge. Every experience you encounter each day is an opportunity to grow and learn, but only if you choose to do so. I find for me personally, if I am not making the conscious effort to improve each and every day, I am left feeling empty and hungry. One of the reasons I enjoy competitive endeavors, such as athletics and poker, is because every time I engage in one of these activities, I am learning and improving, no matter whether I succeed or not in the short-term.
I find myself at times desperate for competition. While doing boring mundane tasks, all I am thinking about is how to improve in things I am truly passionate about. I am truly passionate about teamwork, leadership, and improving my skill sets in each of my competitive hobbies. Without these passions to pursue, I am not sure where I would fit in amongst modern-day society.
The modern day education system is designed to train children to become slaves. Not slaves that work on a farm necessarily, but slaves to the system, and evil corporations that are only concerned about profit, and not human intelligence. From an early age here in America, you are taught to obey society, not ask questions, and fall in line, or get locked in a cage. Don’t ever fall in line, you have the freedom of choice to not obey the standards set upon you.
For the few that are able to consciously break away from the design of the matrix, a world of opportunity awaits if you are willing to pursue it. I can guarantee that deep down, there is something or certain things that you absolutely love to do.Whether it be music, art, computer design or chess, it doesn’t matter. What matters is if you are pursuing your passions, or putting them on the back burner for “tomorrow.”
I live each and every day as if I might die any second. If I was to die, and look back at the life I lived, would I be satisfied? Or would I wish I had done the things I actually wanted to do, regardless of what society or my peers told me. If at the end of the day, I can’t answer that question truthfully, I know I need to make some adjustments. There will be times where you will have to do tasks you don’t particularly want to do, but once the mundane is accomplished, you have to be ready to go to work, or feel unsatisfied with yourself. You have to work on the things that truly motivate you. You have to work on pursuing your passions, or get sucked into a reality you wish you could escape.
Recognize that there is no escape, you are here in this reality operating a temporary flesh vehicle, and you have to make the best of it, or feel miserable for the duration of your experience. It is ultimately your choice, and no one else can have a say if you don’t want them to. Making the choice to focus on abundance, rather than scarcity, will change your life tenfold. In times of “perceived lack” you will notice the opportunity, and capitalize on it if you see fit. Failure to recognize the opportunity will leave you feeling scarce and empty, wishing things weren’t the way they were. It will leave you fearful, and unhappy, two ways to live a guaranteed mediocre life.
Abundance is everywhere, you just have to recognize it. The economy is doing poor? Recognize the opportunity to teach people how to create additional income for themselves. While a 9-5 job is nice, secure, and stable, it leaves a lot of individuals with a single source of income, rather than an infinite amount of possibilities of opportunity to recognize a profit in unique personal endeavors. These personal endeavors can be pursued along-side the main stream of income if you allocate and balance your time correctly. Not so easy to do at first glance.
If you can creatively express yourself and provide value for your fellow human, you can recognize a profit. Money is the value you receive in return for providing a valuable service/product for others. If you are extremely talented in a certain field, people will pay you to teach them how to become just like you. You put in the time and effort to master an art or a craft, and the value you provide from the time spent behind the scenes will net you a return on your investment. Most people are scared to “invest” due to “risk”, but what most fail to recognize is that the most valuable thing you can choose to invest in is yourself.
You can invest in yourself for completely free, there are an abundance of free resources available for free on the internet if you take the time to investigate. Try Google.com, and type in anything you want to learn about or are curious of. You are guaranteed to find something that sparks your interest/you can learn from. We live in a generation where all of the information you could possibly want is available at light-speed, free of charge, barring you have a connection to the internet. Where don’t you have a connection to the internet is a good question these days in well-developed countries. Are you taking advantage, or being lazy?
If a lot of what you just read frightens or alarms you, recognize that their will be resistance on the path to your own personal enlightenment. Being able to work through and overcome this resistance is what will separate you from the rest of the drones in society. Once aware, it is your duty to spread the awareness to each and every individual you come across. While most will claim your crazy at first, most will take what you say into consideration and try for themselves.
One of the most rewarding things for me in my life is when I have a friend come up to me and tell me that they are thankful I was able to open the door for them to think for themselves. Once the door is open, there is no turning back unless you choose to do so. Don’t be scared. Step through the door and begin to recognize the opportunity for you to improve your life, and the lives of others around you. Hopefully at some point and time in the future, we will all be on the same page pursuing what we truly desire, instead of dreaming that one day it “might happen.”
All you have is the present moment. What are you doing in this present moment to create abundance for yourself and others around you? What are you going to do today to improve your life, and help improve the lives of others around you? “I don’t know” isn’t a valid answer, because in reality, we all don’t know what we are even doing here on this floating organic spaceship. What you do know now is the fact that you dictate the outcome of your temporary experience. Anything is yours for the taking, step up to the plate and answer the call!
