You yourself are abundance in action. But the body that you call YOU cannot own anything or take anything with it when you leave it. That body functions by forces and energy that transcend accumulations. All of the ‘stuff’ of your life has arrived to serve you, rather than to make you a servant to the stuff. Try keeping this principle in mind as you read on. Everything that was ‘owned’ by someone only a few years ago is now serving someone else. The land that was thought to be owned is now serving others. The jewelry now adorns others. And so it goes in the entire spectrum of life. Nothing gets owned, and the sooner we realize this and stop trying to own things and people, the more we will be able to tune in to this wondrous principle of abundance.
The secret is to stop focusing on what we do not have, and shift our consciousness to an appreciation for all that we are and all that we do have. With this change of consciousness, service becomes a natural part of the abundant life.
