How do we bring abundance into our lives? We start by acknowledging the profusion of life and beauty around us. Have you looked at the velvety sky at night and watched the countless stars twinkling in the distance? Do you savor the sweet smell of grass right after a rainfall? Are you touched by the innocence and beauty of a child’s laughter? Have you opened your window to welcome the rush of fresh air? If you acknowledge the beauty that is everywhere, you also notice the beauty that is within you and this awakens the desire to share it with the people around you. When you feel abundant inside, you attract abundance from the outside and so people and things come to you.
Eckhart Tolle says that whatever you think the world is withholding from you, you are withholding from the world. You do this because you feel you are insignificant and have nothing to give. But if you realize that what you withhold from world you already have– and you start giving it to the world, then you are opening yourself to abundance. In other words, you already have the love, success, praise, or whatever it is that you crave but you won’t know you have it until you give it away. You can not receive what you don’t give. Remember this: if you serve the universe, the universe will serve you.
