God is the source of life - shouldn't we be able to find the essence of that source in our lives? Yet when we examine our lives, in what part do we find God? What part is the "I"? God is love, peace, abundance, power, strength, mercy, truth, balance and joy. For many of us, life is lack, limitation, strife, stress, chaos, confusion, oppression and hate. Your race, my race; their goals, our goals; your religion, my religion have replaced the sense of oneness known as God. Did God create this mess? No, "I" did. The small part of "I" that wants control and the power. The "I" that is fear, arrogance, anger and pride. The "I" that holds on to pain because "I don't know what to do." The "I" that wants it my way because "I can take care of myself." The "I" that can't figure out which part of God is and which part "I" am because "I" have forgotten that all God is I Am. If only "I" would let God do His part, [I believe] we would be fine. How can we serve God today?

I don't believe abundance has anything to do with how much money you have. Abundance is about feeling rich and having rich feelings. Abundance is rich relationships, rich experiences, a rich mind and rich ideas that provide you with a sense of meaning. To understand abundance is to create what you want without fear. Abundance is knowing the glass is half full no matter what is going on. Abundance is feeling good about who you are, where you are and what you have because you realize you don't have to stay there. When your mind is an abundance of ideas, when your hearing is an abundance of love, when your life is an abundance of good people doing good things with you and for you, you are rich beyond words. Abundance begins in the mind, extends to the deeds and brings rewards you can bank on even if you cannot put them in the bank.
