Abundance

Abundance and affluence are quite closely related, both are equated with wealth and riches with emphasis on monetary value.  Modern day success, is primarily measured by what we have, not who we are.

A rich, abundant life is more than material wealth.  Riding the current of contemporary economy requires extraordinary expenditures of time and energy just to pay bills and keep food on the table.

Jean Houston writes in The Wizard of Us, “Today money is the goal, which means that the expenditure of human energy, which in the past went to quality of life, now goes to the acquisition of money and the security it represents.”   It also goes to acquisition of social status and the ‘things’ money can buy.  However,  money cannot buy inner peace, an abundant heart, a joy-filled life,  the creative expression of the soul, and the deep satisfaction of a life well-lived.

Money of itself is not the root of all evil.  It is an essential component of surviving in a global economy.
