Today, stand under a spreading tree and breathe in the oxygen that it provides you. Reach up and take the golden pear in your hand and bite in. Let the sweet juice of life run down your chin. Look out across the beauty of the world and know that you can establish a relationship with the universe that is just like this, like standing under a tree that provides everything you need, with ease and comfort, and with beauty as well.
Know that this flowing abundance is a state of mind that you can create. It is not the acquiring of wealth for imagined security, for the security of the flowing spiritual abundance of the universe is the security of faith. When you know, absolutely, that the tree will give you air to breathe, that the fruit will ripen and fall when you need it to, and that the river of love will run endlessly through your life, there is no need to protect yourself further. This depth of faith is its own protection.
And all of this is a relationship with life and the universe that you create. It is entirely up to you. It is a state of grace that you reach by replacing doubt and fear with love and faith, over and over, day after day, until finally, faith and love come more naturally to you and any other emotion or state of mind.
When you establish a deep connection with faith and love, abundance flows as a consequence. It is not something to be sought separately or directly. It is a consequence of your close connection with love and faith every moment of every day. When you have this, when you walk through life with the crown of your head open to the golden flowing energy of your higher self, when your heart is soft and warm with love and when all of your actions are driven by a deep faith and sense of peace and rightness inside, then the opportunities will always come to allow you to move forward into the next phase of your life.
And when you walk in this state of grace, the next phase is always more glorious than the last. Still full of challenges, of course, for you are growing and learning. Still full of so-called mistakes, for these are merely the stepping stones of experience and learning. And each stepping stone can take you higher and wider, each can expand who you are and what you accomplish, if you will but continue, full of faith and full of love.
And one day, as you are looking at your life and all of the wonderful things you have accomplished and are still accomplishing, you will realize that what you needed was always right there, under that spreading tree, even though you may not have recognized it fully at the time.
Here is a little prayer for today
I ask that I may be filled with the grace of love and faith, that they may fill my heart and mind and body completely.
My heart grows warm and opens wide to accept all of the love of the universe. Faith pours into me and fills me completely.
I am love and faith. I am a deep abiding peace. I am.
