True Abundance

My dear friend, Brooke, (thank you so much, Brooke) sent this quote to me a couple of days ago and it just about took my breath away.  I've been sitting in the midst of some pretty deep suffering lately and, as is often the case after the dark stuff lifts, there is some beautiful clarity coming quietly through. 

This quote is that clarity:

"Most rarely align with their true power, because it seems illogical to them that there is power in relaxation, in letting go, or in love or joy or bliss. Most people do not understand that their true power lies in releasing resistance—which is the only obstacle to their true power.  Most people do not expect their path to great abundance to be one of ease and of joy. They have been taught that struggle and hardship and sacrifice are requirements that must be met before the reward of great abundance can be realized. Most do not understand that the very struggle they deliberately involve themselves in, in their quest for success and advantage, actually works against them.  There are so many things that you have been taught to believe that are counter to the powerful Laws of the Universe that it is difficult for you to think your way out. And that is the reason that we present this path of much less resistance.

We want you to breathe rather than try, to relax rather than offer effort, to smile rather than struggle, to be rather than do. For your true power is experienced only from inside the Vortex.---" ~Abraham

  4. I will have to read that over and over again to get it to sink in. Maybe I need to print this one out too. Do you have any idea how much I want to hang out with you and Brooke?!
