If we open up to our vitality and to the sense of urgency that flows within us, we will have the pleasure of experiencing ourselves living and working in cooperation with the deepest forces of life.
THE TANTRIC ALCHEMY OF ABUNDANCE: COMING INTO RADIANT RELATIONSHIP WITH EVERYTHING & EVERYONE
The Way of Abundance is all too often misconstrued as a shallow sense of “getting what one wants,” “eliminating the negative,” or “being free from pain.” Even the often touted “manifesting your dreams,” offers a psychological disposition that generally remains fixated around manifestation as “the project of me.”
The “project of me” can never be quite enough, however, for it does not meet “the other,” and real living involves meeting. The touch and contact with all of life, the full freedom of non-separation, the completeness of full relationship, and the radiance of compassionate ecstasy is what we are inherently hungry for. These most authentic yearnings may initially appear as forms of imbalance (i.e. addictions) in our lives, but when understood and worked with skillfully, they open a way to a greater life; a life where feeling simultaneously expansive and yet close with everything and everyone is not a wish, but a reality.
This reality can be attained! And the practice of abundance offers a pathway toward this attainment. By listening deeply to the messages that life is sending to us, by profoundly releasing habitual judgments and behavioral patterns, and by learning to access the divine power of imagination in a clear and aligned way, we can find ourselves forever at home even as we act powerfully in the world.
