Alphabet soup for the soul – “A”

A is for Abundance

God, Source, The Universe, The Feild. Whatever you call the higher power that created us and allowed blood to travel substantial distances freely through our veins provides abundance everywhere, all the time.

This same intelligence keeps us breathing while we are fast asleep, resting and repairing, regenerating and rejuvenating, so every day, we function at an optimal level.

The same higher intelligence also provides fruits and vegetables to nurture the body. By harnessing the sun’s power plus water as it falls from the sky, all the food needed for survival grows on trees, bushes or directly out of the ground.

The amount of food produced each year is enough to feed the whole world multiple times, and it all stems from the tiniest volume of seeds which grow into total abundance right in front of our eyes.

Made purposefully by God and given for us. The amount of abundance is greater than one can attempt to fathom.

One day while making dinner, I cut open a pepper with at least one hundred seeds inside one red pepper.

If even half turned into peppers after planting, then I would end up with fifty new peppers, each with a hundred more seeds which is the same as five thousand more seeds.

After just a couple of years, you would have half a million followed by a number like 50,000,000 and on and on, forever expanding.

All that abundance came from one seed planted with love and cared for over a much shorter time than one might assume. This idea works in an endless possibility of ways and means. Some are noted in this article I wrote a little while back. The brain is another great example.

Look at how many neurons are in the human brain. As of the last count, there were 86 billion neurons inside a human brain. Is that how many drops of water are in all the oceans? How about the number of grains of sand? Is it possible that there are 86 billion stars in the universe?

Finally, abundance can be shown through the neuron example via human evolution in learning. If scientists one hundred years ago claimed there were only 14 billion neurons in the brain and today they are saying 86 billion, then how many neurological circuits will the human brain have 100 years from now. It matters not that we didn’t have the ‘proper’ tools 100 years ago. What matters is the abundance was already there, we just couldn’t see it.

  1. I too love to ponder these things, this abundance we have on earth, although still very mismanaged at times, is keeping us alive, The brain neurons is always incredible..just the brain itself…”thinking meat!!” Only a creator could create! Loved your pondering on the turn over of a new year!

    1. Karima I am again Humbled by your kind words and I love to see that I am not alone in my thinking. It is difficult when you first wake up and notice that everyone around you is asleep. That is where I find myself most days but I still am so grateful that “I am awake even if it took me 40 years to get there

  2. Oh believe me you are not alone and these types of ponderings put you squarely in the awake camp. Since I was a little child, living very remotely, I divided everyone into two groups in my mind, ” The Awakes and The Asleep” It had nothing to do with education or degrees, as many of my Awakes, could not read or write, but they had other knowledge and were wise.. While many of my Asleeps were very educated, and yet clueless to the nature of life and what it really meant:)


    1. love it. awakes and asleeps. than you so much. i love your blog and the entire idea. its so original and brilliant and I feel like the avatar in my feeling sometimes. like closing eyes and being able to see the bright light at the top of a mountain top.

    I wish for us all to see the world this way. Very powerful words, and how very true.
