Every day, I have the simultaneous desire to be able to live completely off of the land and be totally free from my needs of distraction, and to be able to have enough money to be able to acquire whatever I want whenever I need it.
This constant dual pattern in my life has kept me living in fear for far longer than I want to admit.
I have so many brave friends who are passionately and fearlessly living their truths; willing and able to accept the deep possibility of being uncomfortable. They live off of their wits and intuition and of course, the kindness of their communities. They exemplify a powerful path lived solely from the heart.
Yes, money can be a very useful tool, but so often, myself included, we divide ourselves from the natural flow of universal gifts in order to remain secured by our assets.
But, there is no such thing as security. When we try to hold on to a future moment of having more money, and even being more "secure" rather than embracing what we have right now.
I have lived in lack. I have also lived in abundance and trust. I know, without a doubt, that when I trust that I have enough, I somehow just do.
Whenever I find myself sneaking back into my fear of lack, I like to remind myself;
I have everything that I need. RIGHT NOW.
"How many times have you heard someone say
"If I had his money, I could do things my way?"
But little they know that it's so hard to find
One rich man in ten with a satisfied mind.
Once I was waiting in fortune and fame
Everything that I dreamed for to get a start in life's game
But suddenly it happened, I lost every dime
But I'm richer by far with a satisfied mind
Money can't buy back your youth when you're old
Or a friend when you're lonely, or a love that's grown cold
The wealthiest person is a pauper at times
Compared to the man with a satisfied mind
When life has ended, my time has run out
My friends and my loved ones, I'll leave there's no doubt
But yhere's one thing for certain, when it comes my time
I'll leave this old world with a satisfied mind"- Porter Wagoner
