The dictionary defines affluence as meaning “to be in the flow.” How often do I actually feel in the flow? How much of my life experience is one of affluence? I observe that many people do not have a clear idea of what they would like to focus on in life. Others know exactly what they deeply desire and yet are afraid to say it, or to even think it. Both are experiencing some form of resistance to having that which they desire.
Studying God, I notice that God is infinitely creative, always progressive. It is the river that continuously flows in an ever-expanding way. This is my own true nature as well. Yet I have often resisted my natural inclination to be in the flow, to be affluent. Resistance became a habit.
Like me, almost everyone I meet has a goal, a dream or desire that they really, deeply want to see fulfilled, and yet the years go by and the dream remains unattained. We know the steps that need to be taken to achieve our goal and yet we don’t take them. I know very spiritual people who don’t pray for the very things they desire most. Sometimes I am that person. This is the resistance. I’ve learned that if the resistance is strong, instead of focusing on the end result I am better served by focusing on the resistance. I become willing to release, resolve and dissolve the resistance so that there is true flow in my life and then I can be affluent.
When I’m in the flow I am enjoying my path very much. I feel a natural joy. Being in the flow is yummy and fulfilling. I recognize that it is because I am more and more receptive to the yumminess that God is always pouring forth. God has not changed, life has not changed. I’m in the flow when I’m working for the good of all, when I’m seeing all as one. There’s nothing to resist so I give up my resistance.
I desire to know my true identity so fully and completely that it obliterates any remembrance of a false ego identity. Today my awareness expands to know the Truth fully. Today I am more and more receptive because I am less and less resistant to having the life I desire. I am more receptive because my spiritual practice of nonviolence leads me to see that all is one and there’s nothing to resist. My dream, my goal, my desire is Divine desire in me. The more I trust the flow of the river the safer it is. In this way I am an example. In this way I am a safe place and make the world a place of greater peace.
Love is the healer of my life. I allow my healing!
