When we think of abundant riches and what we would do if they came knocking on our door, it is quite easy to get caught up in our reverie and imagine a life filled with opulence and untold excesses… We might linger on our fantasies for a while or if we are fortunate, gain a moment of lucidity; remembering that our abundant blessings are to be shared. I love the quote above because it is a reminder that true abundance is not just about our gains, but also about whether we provide enough to those who have too little.
“Not what we have But what we enjoy, constitutes our abundance.” Epicurus
When I first read the Plinky prompt to – Name something you’d like a lifetime supply of – I imagined two things that we all cherish in our lives even though we sometimes forget to name them; health and happiness. I figured that with our health in positive alignment, we can accomplish many things and live productive lives. With happiness, which encompasses every other blessing; spiritual, material, mental and otherwise, we have a complete package to help us live abundantly.
Of course, the key is to not just wish it for ourselves; but to also bless others and wish them just as much. If we look around our communities, there are many struggling to make ends meet and then others living quite lavish lifestyles. If each of us offers some assistance; shared our good fortune, we will make a positive impact on another person’s life. With the impending hurricane, I might be offline till Monday… I Will follow up on comments when feasible. Posts were already scheduled. Stay safe all! More below…
“Many a man curses the rain that falls upon his head, and knows not that it brings abundance to drive away the hunger.” Saint Basil
When we look around our global communities today, we can see that we live in difficult times; a world economy in trouble, unemployment numbers growing, and shifting winds of change around the world destabilizing economies and adding to our collective sense of uncertainty. Through it all, there is an underlying current that we need to nurture each other with our goods and our deeds. If we can make a difference in the lives of a few, then, we are on track to sharing our abundance.
“Great abundance of riches cannot be gathered and kept by any man without sin.” Desiderius Erasmus
In the final analysis, Health & Happiness are desirable gifts that we all want even before we want material wealth. Why? Because wealth alone cannot sustain us if we have neither the health to enjoy it nor the delightful company of friends, family, community and the larger world to share and celebrate with… Even Midas recognized the folly of his ways when everything turned to gold and he had lost all that held meaning to him including his beloved daughter… We can’t eat or live on gold alone. We need the richness of friendship, love, and memories of joyful days shared. I wish you an abundance of riches too.. share it! What are your thoughts? What would you like a lifetime supply of? How will it benefit your fellow men and women? Do share! Thank you. 😉
