Keepers of the Light        

Dear Keepers,

You will be receiving October’s affirmation early as John and I will be on a cruise. We have been blessed with an almost free cruise with many perks.

October Affirmation: I celebrate Life and the abundance of ever-flowing Good.

Take time to look for and appreciate all the Good in your Life. Say the affirmation first for yourself, then your community, your region, and One Unity (a coming together of UWH and UWM).

Sufficiency: sufficient means to meet one’s needs. (Merriam-Webster   Dictionary) the condition or quality of being adequate or sufficient.

An adequate amount of something, especially of something essential. (Oxford Dictionary)

We each have the choice in any setting to step back and let go of the mind-set of scarcity. Once we let go of scarcity, we discover the surprising truth of sufficiency. By sufficiency, I don’t mean a quantity of anything. Sufficiency isn’t two steps up from poverty or one step short of abundance. It isn’t a measure of barely enough or more than enough. Sufficiency isn’t an amount at all. It is an experience, a context we generate, a declaration, a knowing that there is enough, and that we are enough.

Sufficiency resides inside of each of us. And we can call it forward. It is a consciousness, an attention, an intentional choosing of the way we think about our circumstances. In our relationship with money, it is using money in a way that expresses our integrity; using it in a way that expresses value rather than determines value. Sufficiency is not a message about simplicity or about cutting back and lowering expectations. Sufficiency is a context we bring forth from within that reminds us that if we look around us and within ourselves, we will find what we need. There is always enough.

When we live in the context of sufficiency, we find a natural freedom and integrity. We engage in life from a sense of our own wholeness rather than a desperate longing to be complete. We feel naturally called to share the resources that flow through our lives -- our time, our money, our wisdom, our energy, at whatever level those resources flow – to sere out highest commitments. In the context of sufficiency, and the flow of resources to and through and from us, our soul and money interests merge to create a rich, satisfying and meaningful Life.

Sufficiency is the truth. Sufficiency can be a place to stand, a context that generates a completely new relationship with life and money, and with everything that money can buy. I suggest there is enough in nature, in human nature, and in the relationships, we share with one another to have a prosperous, fulfilling life, no matter who you are or where you are in the spectrum of resources. I suggest that if you are willing to let go, let go of that way of perceiving the world, then you can take all that energy and attention and invest it in what you have. When you do that, you will find unimagined treasures, and wealth of surprising and even stunning depth and diversity.

Living from sufficiency, thinking from there and generating that frame of reference for life is enormously powerful and important for our time. In our relationship with money, we can continue to earn, save, invest, and provide for ourselves and our families, but we reframe the relationship with a new recognition of and appreciation for what we already have………. Our relationship with money ceases to be an expression of fear and becomes and expression of exciting possibility. The context of sufficiency can transform our relationship with money, with our resources and with life itself.
