“You can never change things by fighting the existing reality. To change something, build a new model that makes the existing model obsolete.”—my hero, Buckminster Fuller
Psst! Over here! I want to let you in on a little secret. Despite what the $500 billion advertising machine incessantly insists, the world is wildly abundant.
There is no shortage of anything.
You have more than 50 trillion cells in your body alone. Your eyes have 100 million receptors for enjoying a rising moon, the big dipper, four-leaf clovers. Every tree has thousands of individual leaves and as for the number of trees on this planet? I couldn’t hazard a guess. Or simply try counting the blades of grass in one square foot of your front yard. Mother Nature (AKA the natural world before humans imposed fear on her) provides for every single need.
Did you have to make the sun come up this morning? Say thank you!!
Do you have to order your heart to pump blood through your body, 36 million beats per year? Do you have to schedule your lungs to draw in fresh, clear oxygen?
It we focus on the planet’s unending largesse, rather than on marketer’s drumbeat of limitation, on the bounteous gifts that spread out before us on every side rather than on TV commercials that suggest erectile dysfunction, depression and sleeping problems, we can rewrite the dominant paradigm.
Everything is working in our favor. Only our illusory beliefs in limits can keep it away.
That why I say today and every day, “Hallelujah!” And please pass the abundance!!

Is that life, or just a bowl of cherries? lol
Anyway, I like this quote from Lesson 67 of A Course In Miracles:
“You need to hear the truth about yourself as frequently as possible, because your mind is so preoccupied with false self-images.”
Thanks for your steady reminders.
