You're Right to an Abundant Life
We are all part of the universe. The universe is a living, breathing thing. I use the word "thing" because there is no other way to describe it. It is not animal, vegetable or mineral; it is all of these things. It is the creation and the substance of all life.
We are all part of the universe and the universe is part of us. Without the universe life is dead. Without life the universe is dead. Everything is inter-connected. We take for granted that the sun will rise, that the waters will flow and that vegetation will grow in abundance all over our world. Without sun or water, life could not survive. We need both of these things to produce the vegetation that is life and that life survives upon.
For example, take an Oak tree. It starts its life as a seed. Over the years it grows and grows. It may take one hundred years to reach its full potential but eventually it does. It does this through self-growth, it obtains all it needs and requirements to develop its growth from the natural elements that surround it. The sun, the water and the minerals that surround, and are within the earth.
All animals are also entitled to this natural growth. They need exactly the same natural components of life to survive. There is of course one big difference between the animal kingdom and the plant kingdom animals have brains. This very sophisticated organ allows all animals to survive by using a thought process. Although admittedly in some animals it has developed to a much higher degree of awareness and intelligence then in others.
Let us now look at this in further detail.
In some animals there brains are there just to control there bodily functions. In other words to breath, walk, run and find food. Then there is the next group that have learned to communicate, have learned to live and work together. The dog family for example will work in a pack to catch there pray. Many other groups of animals have learnt how to be both cunning and patient and use these principals to catch there pray. No matter what there degree of intelligence all animals have the in-built instinct to survive.
So what about Human Beings - Man? The most intelligent animal of all.
What strange animals we are. We have the most sophisticated brain of the entire animal kingdom. Our brains are so far advanced compared to the rest of the animals on this earth and we are still only using a fraction of our brains capabilities. We can build unbelievable machines, marvellous buildings, send satellites into space, and communicate with each other in real time anywhere in the world. But somehow we have lost our basic instincts - the instinct to survive our right to have an abundant life.
Without mans interference there would be an abundance of wildlife, of flowers and trees. It is the law of nature the law of the universe that everything should be in abundance. There are millions of planets; there are thousands of species and sub-species of both animals, plants, fish even bacteria. It's a fact that bacteria are the most prolific of all life forms, although on an intelligence level it is one of the lowest. Bacterium is in abundance it can be found and will grow and multiply anywhere.
So if everything on this earth is in such abundance. If everything on earth is meant to grow and expand and is entitled by the law of the universe to do so. Why are so many people not obtaining an abundant life?
Look: it's as simple as this.
If life is in abundance and if everything that sustains life is in abundance, does that not mean you are entitled to some of it?
The earth will never run-out of recourses either natural or un-natural.
We will never run-out of water, food or minerals. We will always find a way of generating power. If coal runs out we can always use oil or nuclear power. We are at this present time investigating better ways to harness wind power. There is always enough food available in the world to feed every single person on Earth. Although the distribution of this food comes down to political matters. In the third world people starve in the modern world we throw food away. The truth is. If we could all work together there is enough food for everyone, and there always will be. It's the Law of the Universe.
Consequently there will always be an abundance of un-natural recourses. We will never run out of business opportunities. We will never run out of money. There are billions and billions available. If you just want 1 million of it do you really think it is going to run out? Do you really believe that one day someone is going to say, sorry; the world has run out of money? Of course not. It is in abundance and you are entitled to some of it. It is your natural right.
The problem with people as a whole is that many have lost their natural instinct to survive. We live in a world of dreams. The media work very hard to convince us that we need more. We can't do without a new car or a new TV. We need the latest technology.
The truth is we all fall into this trap. I am sitting here writing this book on a computer that has enough memory to play any game. I have a 3D graphics card, a 17" monitor, 2 DVD re-writers and my operating system is Windows XP. The truth is I don't play games on my computer. To write this book all I actually need is a low powered computer with a very basic word processing program that could easily be run on Windows 95. But no. The large marketing machine has convinced me that what I have is what I need. In fact the commercials are now telling me that what I have is out of date and I need to update quickly or else I am going to get left behind in the technology stakes.
You see the marketing dream machine traps us all. We work just to get the latest gadgets, the latest designer clothes. Furthermore we get into debt just to get these items of desire.
A world of NEED >NEED >NEED.
A world of GET >GET >GET.
A world of WANT >WANT >WANT.
We are so obsessed with our dreams that we have forgotten or lost our basic animal instincts of survival.
You NEED to re-learn how to use your basic instincts of survival to GET what you WANT. What you are entitled to.
The basic instinct of survival is in all living things and all living things are inter-connected. All animals survive by taking water and nutrients from there environment. If an animal cannot adapt to its environment it will die. This is why you find totally different species in a rain forest compared to a desert.
You must realise that you will never own anything material in this life, you are purely the keeper of it. You may be thinking, that's all very well but I own my home and I own my TV.
I am sorry but you don't, you are purely the keeper of these things.
Think about it.
Do you own money? No, you earn money by taking it from someone else. Through offering them your labour or supplying them with a product. Do you own your home? No, you either rent it, of have given money for it. The money you have taken from someone else. When you move home you will sell it to someone else. They will buy it with money they have taken from someone. If you were to die your home would be given to your benefactor. If they were to sell it they would have taken the money from you. From there point of view, from someone else.
Can you see what I am trying to explain to you? Everything in the material world revolves around having money. This money is in abundance but you have to take it from someone to get your hands on it. Other people will then try to take it from you. That's why I say you are purely the keeper; you will never actually own it, in the true sense of the word.
Where all the other species of the animal kingdom use there basic survival instincts to find food, you need to use this survival instinct to find money. Because to survive in this materialistic world you need money and because whatever you need to survive by the laws of the universe are always in abundance you are entitled to this money.
