Abundance

In a world of habitual wanting 
more money, less aging, promotion, 
we find ourselves trapped within 
a consciousness of lack

We are able to shift this perception, though 
from focusing on what we are lacking
to a perception of seeing abundance
focused instead on our blessings 

We get to breathe, others love us
we have indoor plumbing, we can read
rains come and nourish the earth
the sun rises each day

Practicing gratitude for blessings
shifts focus toward abundance and
breaks the cycle of just seeing lack

The more we practice gratitude 
for the ever-present gifts of life 
the more we attract blessings 
that when focused upon thus create
a consciousness of abundance


The tree which moves some to tears of joy is in the eyes of others only a green thing which stands in the way… As a man is, so he sees. William Blake
