The Concept of Enough

The Secret of Enough – Part 2/2

2022-07-29T15:43:32+00:00

What is enough? Enough is different for everyone. Most of us in the Western world do want some luxuries and modern commodities and some of these can be supported by Mother Nature (if we are wise in our choices), but many of us have gone overboard and are unnecessarily taxing our Planet - and its inhabitants. Read   Part 1 .  And at the end, you will find links to a few more associated blog posts. In The Last Hours of Ancient Sunlight Thom Hartmann reminds us that our current society lives under the myth that “if some stuff will make you happy, then twice as much stuff will make you twice as happy, and ten times as much will make you ten times as happy, and so on, into infinity.” (1) And although greed has been around for eons, it has only recently extended to such abusive actions towards our Planet as to threaten her (and thereby humanity's) very survival. Where did this current greed come from? In his essay, “The World of Wonder” in Spiritual Ecology, Thomas Berry explains that in North America this attitude of acquiring grew as a result of our lack of embracing or understanding the concept of “Earth-based spirituality” that the Indigenous people held when we first came here from Europe. Berry reminds us that not only did the Indigenous people understand the relationship between heaven, earth, and its people - evidenced by their rituals and ceremonies to evoke the powers of the Universe, so did most ancient cultures. He tells us that the huge pillars in India, China, Greece, Egypt, and Rome “were established to delineate a sacred center which provided a point of reference for human affairs and bound Heaven and Earth together.” (2) Barry explains that we came to America from Europe believing we were religious, educated, scientifically advanced, and able to create our own political organizations. We “saw ourselves as a divine blessing on this continent. In reality, we were a predator people on an innocent continent”(3) "We saw a land that could allow us to break away from the “monarchical governments  and their world of royalty and subservience,” but rather than be in awe of the grandness and beauty of this land, we saw it as a “continent available for exploitation.”(3) Although it is likely that at least some of those who felt inspired to break free of Europe's leaders' controlling, cruel, and greedy ways and were searching for a place to create new values, the individuals who came brought the old attitudes and behaviors with them - values that did not reflect those of the native people already here. These articles are all based on Chapter 9, “The Planet and Abundance” from my book Your Journey to Peace …  I am also a Copywriter/Digital Marketer. and offer various Writing Services Find out more HERE The Indigenous peoples were actually the more spiritually advanced ones. They revered the land and adhered to a reciprocal relationship to it,t - believing they are its stewards. We have [...]

We Are at the Pinnacle of Our Personal, Collective, and Planetary Evolution

2022-08-01T02:22:46+00:00

At this time of our evolution, we are all awakening to the truth of who we are, the truth of who our brothers and sisters on the Planet we share are, and are starting to embrace the concrete changes all this brings with it. We are all primed to become the best and most empowered expressions of ourselves, and this will bring with it powerful changes that will benefit all of us and affect the trajectory of humanity. While it may not be apparent in all areas of our world today, most of us are ready to embrace our shared connection to the Oneness we emanated from and extend its inherent qualities to others. (Below are links to 2 more articles related to Our Evolution, the Planet, the Secret of Enough, and the Indigenous People). We are starting to manifest what will bring about a safe, fair, and egalitarian world, where everyone feels empowered, has what they need to survive and thrive, and is free to live in alignment with their soul’s desires. Children Come into the World More Evolved than the Last Generation It is often the youth that urges us to make the changes needed to create a better world. The children of those born since the enlightenment era of the ’60s - especially those birthed from within the bubble of energy following the ’87 Harmonic Convergence simply expect a peaceful, just, and equitable world. They are here to help us firmly grasp the ideas of compassion, fairness, acceptance, and equality necessary to bring it about. In fact, they are demanding it!. All my articles/blog posts are based on concepts in my book:  Your Journey to Peace, Bridging the Gap Between Religion, Spirituality, Psychology, and Science.  I also offer a variety of Writing Services  Just like with every new generation, the young people of today have shown up here on earth more enlightened than the last one. The confidence and inner-knowledge that come with this allow them to outright reject any attitude or action that hints of unfairness, greed, inequality, prejudice, or cruelty that has been so ingrained in our world. The younger generations don’t accept that people should be used or abused by others, taken advantage of or bullied by big business or the government, or be talked down to by educators or the religious hierarchy. The young people today embrace ideas that align with practices that help our Planet thrive. They are encouraging us to listen to the Indigenous people regarding our beautiful home. They do not buy into the illusions of past generations and therefore are not in denial of the consequences of their or others’ actions. The popular saying “teach your children well” should be followed by “and heed their wisdom.” The young generation of today is starting to and will continue to be the strong leaders who will fearlessly usher in this new, brighter era we now seeing glimpses of. Most of us now understand it is more beneficial to work with others in relationship [...]

July Newsletter: Feeding Our Soul, and the Concept of Enough

2021-09-28T19:08:35+00:00

Feeding Our Soul and the Concept of Enough is the message of my July 2021 newsletter.  Read the full message Most of us have gone through life without thinking that what we have and rely upon would be challenged. And being optimistic and feeling positive about the future is a good thing. It is a spiritual principle. The philosophy that our thoughts, attitudes, and behaviors create our reality is now a widely held belief that many of us live by – or at least aim to live by. However, recently something beyond our individual control has occurred – and it has affected everyone – in one way or another – whether our thoughts, attitudes, and behaviors have been positive or negative. And whichever way we believe this virus came about (by accident or on purpose for nefarious reasons), it has been a collective wake-up call. The Wake-up Call Regarding Ourselves As well as challenging us in many ways, this past year and a half have also helped us clarify – and value what is really important to us. It is like the universe has shaken us to our bones so that we look deep enough within to make the distinctions as to … What Truly Bring Us Joy, Feeds Our Soul, and Is Enough Our "what is normal" sure has been shaken up. And as we move forward with more freedoms, we will all likely … Embrace the People, Activities, and What We Missed the Most – with More Gusto. 🦋 How could we ever imagine that giving or receive hugs to anyone we want would be a distant memory and that having that first hug from a loved one would feel so good? 🦋 Our appreciation of freedom will sure go up as we can start to go out to eat and shop with ease, and go to the gym, play our favorite group sport, or do an indoor class – all on a whim and without restrictions. 🦋 Maybe we don't need to return to so many activities. Perhaps we need to embrace just "enough" of what was so that we feel the love and connection with others and that our outings and activities bring us joy – and do not add to our stress or list of things to do. Letting Go of What No Longer Sparks Joy or Inspires Us 🦋 As we have had time to relax and reflect more and miss what was, most of us will be able to more easily pinpoint what truly brings us joy and recognize what no longer sparks joy or inspires us. 🦋 The quiet time we have spent has allowed us to tap into our soul's true desires and has calmed the ego's clamoring for more of this or that – just for the sake of business or acquiring. As well as my spiritual/personal development writing, I am also a Copywriter. See My Writing Services My writing is based on My Books, Your Journey to Peace ..., [...]
