What does abundance mean? For some, it’s a material word – lots of money and material possessions.
I think more of the spiritual aspect: a life palpably supported by nature, profound knowledge, friendships with the spiritually-minded, communion with God. That’s abundance.
Brihaspati (Jupiter) is the benefic Guru – expansive, the giver of abundance. If your relationship with Jupiter is unbalanced, it can lead to excess. The difference between abundance and excess is something you need to find within your own heart.
The insatiable sense that you are not safe and there is not enough also falls into the realm of an unbalanced relationship with Brihaspati.
Fulfillment and contentment in life require a healthy relationship with the meaning of abundance, not as a concept but as a state of being. State of being is largely physiological. A finely tuned car, when idling purrs like a kitten. Fulfillment and contentment are a state of being like the idling of a finely tuned car
A healthy relationship with abundance cultivates a healthy state of physiology. Understand that with your mind but find it within your being. Meditation and discernment are the two most powerful tools that you have.
Make hay while the sun shines.
What humanity longs for…
And the lack there of seems to fuel the imbalanced relationship with material abundance.
