When I first began to awaken, I began to read every thing I could get my hands on about how to improve my life. The one theme that I found interesting was the concept of abundance. Though there were many interpretations of this magical thing called abundance, one thing that really stuck out for me was that no one really had a clear explanation on HOW to manifest it in life. Yes, it all sounded really good in theory but really, how does one create this and keep this flowing in ones life?
So the hunt for me began. I was pretty determined to find the formula. Not the pie in the sky theory's, but the pure formula of the alchemist. I wanted to know the universal law that governs this. For truly, it is a law and it is an immutable law at that. So, the big question was, if it is an immutable law then why was it that some people were rich, while others were poor? Why was I able to create one thing, out of thin air, yet when I applied myself, nothing?
I soon began to realize that the formula I had found had its issues. All the positive intentions, all the positive thinking and mantras did nothing but wear me out, with little to show for my effort. Every thing I had read about and heard about was great but when I viewed my life and what I was working to create, it all fell short and extremely empty.
So there I was. Face down in the dirt, exhausted and feeling truly defeated, when there came across the vast sea of my mind, in barely a whisper, "What are you without?" Huh? "What am I without?"
