Gratitude for the Abundance

Gratitude for the Abundance
by Nancy Bowers, RScP

“Your state of knowing is what manifests. Whatever you want, you need to get in the “knowing” of having it before it’ll appear in your life.” ~A. C. Winklier, A Conscious Creator’s Guidebook

“We don’t see things as they are, we see them as we are.” ~ Anais Nin

“Love is all there is.  The rest we made up.” ~Rev. Patrick Pollard

“You can attract only that which you mentally become and feel yourself to be in reality.” ~Ernest Holmes

In this moment, right here, right now, I pause to remember the Goodness of God.  Spirit is Total Love.  God is the Power and Presence of Beingness — the Creator of Life, the Giver of Experience.  It judges not, it simply reflects back to us that which we are being, and kindly, lovingly provides us with the opportunity to choose love, choose compassion, choose oneness. God is Love, and we, too, are that.

I am that which God is.  You are the divine expressing.  We are bathed in an abundant universe where it is God’s good pleasure to give us the kingdom.  But it helps me when I remember that what we reap, we sow.   Whatever I “know” to be true, is true for me.  Do I have faith in who I am?  Do I remember that Love created me like Itself?  Can I relax into the Peace of God’s Love?

In this moment, I breathe into knowingness – the recognition that God, Source Energy, the Creator imbued each of us with the power of creation.  Our lives are but a reflection of the energy and beliefs we live from.  Recognizing this, I shift my awareness from lack to abundance.  I stop focusing on what is missing, for I remember that what I focus on expands.  Therefore, I breathe into gratitude for what is.  I allow the blessings to capture my heart and expand into a deep love of life.   I let go of fear, which seeks to deprive me, and turn my attention to the abundance which surrounds me.  I notice.  I appreciate.  I release any ideas of “poor me” and shift into “lucky me.”  Lucky me that God is so loving.  Lucky me that life just reflects my state of beingness. Lucky me that the Law forever reflects “I am.”  Holy Spirit whispers and brings me back to gratitude.  How peaceful it is to rest in the Abundance of God!

I am so grateful for this truth.  I need only remember who I am – God’s love extending light into the world.  I am thankful for all the teachings that have returned me to remembering.  Be the peace, be the love, be the light and in that being, return to serenity.  All fear dissipates.  It was only ever my doubt arising to show me where it was that I forgot to trust God.  I appreciate the simplicity of it all.  To have peace, be it. 

Resting in the calm of God’s Love, I let go.  I release all anxiety.  I release all the blocks to the awareness of Love’s presence.  I allow myself to trust and watch Life’s Abundance reflected back to me.  It’s so beautiful!

And so it is.  Amen.
