This following is a post from HONY - Humans of New York.
Most people reading this are fortunate enough to be living with plenty - materialistically speaking. We have closets full of clothes, we have food to eat, water to drink, hot water for showers, heat in the winter and a/c in the summer, access to washers and dryers as well as some mode of transportation. Then, there's the video games, home cinema and surround sound systems, cell phones, purses, sports equipment, computers, printers, instruments, workout equipment, toys... you name it. We are definitely surrounded by abundance - an abundance of things and the perpetuated idea that what we already have isn't enough. I'm not saying stop buying things, I am suggesting that you do ask yourself: why do you really want it? Is it going to make your life better? How? Why? If you do make your purchase then be sure to feel gratitude for it in your heart.
Nowadays, we're also surrounded by an abundance of instant media, fear, uncertainty, addiction to social media, isolation from others, frustration, violence, despair... and the list can go on and on. Too many people are automatically tuned into a lot of this. Is this really the type of abundance you choose to have in your life? If you choose to have peace, start with yourself and make the effort to turn off the distractions. Get quiet, connect to the TRUTH, the true part of you that knows that fear, despair, frustration, etc. are all perceptions and experiences that you, at some level, have chosen or choose to have. You can always change your perceptions and thus your experiences. It does take some work, but it absolutely can be done. Take a moment to ask yourself what you choose to surround yourself with and why? Then, create your own ritual for experiencing the non-material things: love, joy, passion, appreciation, compassion… Love, Adrienne :)
P.S. I wish all those in the United States a very Happy Thanksgiving!
