Sufficiency… energy… and the WES oracle…

Hola, friends, fellow adventurers and colleagues,

As you may have noticed, my most recent travels have been occurring on another plane altogether.¬† No less adventurous, mind you… ūüėČ

This quote by Lynne Twist is informing my approach to work and play right now:

“Sufficiency:….When you let you of trying to get more of what you don’t really need, it frees up oceans of energy to make a difference with what you have. When you make a difference with what you have, it expands.” (Lynne Twist)

Hmmmm… Works on a few levels, I think: with money and material possessions, of course. With relationships, too, though. In my last blog I mentioned my WES sisters, remember? And, no… contrary to what my sword-fighting friend has suggested, we are not a band (at least not yet). We are a small group of entrepreneurs (from¬†up and coming¬†to the well-established and in between) who meet once a month to share and support each other in a constructive and positive forum (and I don’t just mean¬†the restaurant). The host¬†& organizer (rotating)¬†presents something like an idea or approach¬†that works, each member shares some of their goals and challenges, and the WES oracle (coined by secret service writer sister,¬†meaning the members of WES)¬†makes suggestions and gives advice.

Here we are, using what we have to¬†come together (while letting go of what we don’t really need, like competition, envy, insecurity, etc.). Each month I walk away with something¬†I receive from the WES oracle: rekindled energy and enthusiam, new ideas and perspective and a sense that helping each other creates more positive for everyone. Thank you to my ich bin ein berliner and healer¬†WES sister and friend and my very funky boston¬†designer friend for the idea.

Abundance … and having enough…

Hi everyone, adventurers, colleagues, friends,

Spring is here – at least in these parts – and what a wonderful time of year!spring¬†I am out and about and can’t get enough of¬†it. With the abundance of nature all around,¬†I have been thinking a lot about abundance in general. This quotation speaks to me right now:

“There is a natural law of abundance which pervades the entire universe, but it will not flow through a doorway of belief in lack and limitation.”(Paul Zaiter)

So what’s your definition of abundance? My Oxford dictionary entry reads: 1. A very great quantity, usually considered to be more than enough. 2. wealth, affluence.

Pretty general then, at least the first part, as in: an¬†abundance of blossoms,¬†happiness, health, peace, love, friends, joy, adventures, assignments¬†(in no particular order of priority) … and yes, why not money and riches as well? I like the idea of “more than enough,” here.¬†It implies that essentially there is plenty here. Enough to share with others and enough to go around. Enough flowers and enough riches.

Signing off for today, with a heartfelt thanks to my “salon sisters,” who encourage me to stick to my goals. More about the salon and the sisters another time.
