A Timeless Nugget of Wisdom

Hello, I am life coach and counselor Peter Winslow. In my capacity as a teacher of personal empowerment I am often reminded of a famous man who famously said:

“To he who has everything, even more shall be given; and to he who has nothing, even that which he has shall be taken away.”

This enlightened speaker taught that people who focus on the abundance of their surroundings are by this simple act calling into their lives even more abundance—and the same holds true in reverse: those who consistently focus on what they lack shall find themselves lacking. The speaker quoted here is known to us as Jesus of Nazareth, and now is as good a time as any to contemplate and reflect on this cryptic example of his teachings on abundance and joy.

In my online life coaching group we recently had a lively discussion that suggested a fresh perspective on this timeless nugget of ancient wisdom. By acknowledging the subconscious creative mind which consistently provides an outpouring of ideas, we recognize that from our ideas come our words, and from our words come actions. This sequence begins the process by which we produce and enjoy our lives.

As human beings we constantly manufacture what happens next, and the thoughts we focus on give rise to that which we experience. How critical it is to be impeccable with our thoughts, words and deeds, and to maintain these things in alignment with our highest aspirations.
