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… 😉

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.
