This may seem simple and straightforward enough, but make no mistake, most people don’t live this way. Money is often our biggest obsession, (at times I know it’s mine). We think that more money represents security, we feel successful when money comes into our accounts but not when it goes out, and we rest in times of growth and stress in times of depression.
Don’t get me wrong, I too feel good when there is a little more money to go around. I “play” more, I take bigger risks, and I don’t feel so crunched when something goes wrong. But that doesn’t solve the initial problem- do I feel enough?
Enough-ness is an experience that brings on a certain peace with the world- we feel at home in our surrounding environment and in our skin. We feel that in that moment we need nothing else because we “have” everything we need to feel complete. It is often fleeting- it can leave as quickly as it comes. Yet the presence of enough-ness, however so short, can teach us some invaluable things.
When we feel “enough” we don’t feel the need to consume as much. Why? Because we’re already full. It’s like the end of an immensely satisfying meal- we’re so full of goodness and life we just want to sit and relish the moment. Life is good.
When we’re enough we experience our true worth. We know we have a place in the world and an unique gift to give. In these moments we don’t doubt, we know. And in this knowing we live from a place of deeper sacred connection to the living world.
Enough-ness is a gift. It is the gift we give ourselves when we make than journey within and discover what is that one (or few) things that sustains of sense of be-ing in the world. When we unconditionally accept what our deepest being wants to express and bring forth its manifestation, we find meaning in our everyday. We begin to see that opportunities (independent of the money we have) abound. We feel full. There is enough. In fact there is more than enough to go around.
Discovering enough-ness only takes a moment. Close your eyes, ask yourself what is the life you were meant to live? Listen deeply. Keep asking. You hear the clues.
