Abundance Meditation and Immature Fantasies.


When your mind and heart are truly open abundance will flow to you effortlessly and easily.


I completed the Creating Abundance 21-Day meditation some time ago. It was immensely helpful. Thank you. But I am in conflict over another teaching, from Eric Fromm, which I respect and which seems to contradict the essence of that meditation series: “Care, responsibility, respect, and knowledge are mutually interdependent. They are a syndrome of attitudes which are to be found in the mature person; that is, in the person who develops his own power productively, who only wants to have that which he has worked for, who has given up narcissistic dreams of omniscience and omnipotence, who has acquired humility based on the inner strength which only genuine productive activity can give.” Does abundance consciousness risk generating immature fantasies of omniscience and omnipotence? And does the rule of least effort, that the fulfilling of your needs should be effortless, fuel immature magical thinking, leading one away from work and productivity which, according to Fromm, is key to inner strength?


The Creating Abundance meditation is designed to facilitate our awareness to come into full ownership of our humanity, our inner potential and latent power.  it’s about contacting and activating our true human potential. It is not about grandiose ideals, but the practical work of intimately knowing and actualizing our spiritual potential from an awareness that transcends the mind. Immature, narcissistic dreams of power are mental fantasies. Actual abundance is not about money but about actualizing the field of possibilities where our creativity, happiness, humility, harmony, love, power and compassion come from. Our core existence or consciousness is that field of creativity and possibilities. So knowing or realizing your true self is the most mature and responsible activity a human being can pursue, and has nothing to do with fantasies or magical thinking.

The law of least effort is a description of how life lived in the flow of evolutionary force. When your desires and actions are fulfilled with minimal struggle and effort, that means that the universe is supporting your endeavors. That efficiency of energy and time gained by cooperation with the laws of nature is true productivity The limitless power of the cosmos which supports our efforts is our inner strength, it is not separate from it. So the law of least effort doesn’t lead us away from work and productivity, but more efficiently and harmoniously into it.
