Abundance, Wealth, Opportunity & Money

“Abundance ~ An endless supply of water, trees heavily laden with fruit, a sun that shines every day, seasons in their never-ending cycle, a constant supply of air, an infinite wellspring of love, so many people to share with, an eternal cascade of imagination and creativity, unlimited lessons and growth, much valuable work to do, limitless potential for expanding and opening our hearts, unending forests to wander, evermore books to read and write, a vast mind of thoughts to explore, overflowing goodness, exponential wonder, overwhelming mercy, ~ a copious abundance of abundance to ponder.”
Jinjee and Storm Talifero

“Money, n. A blessing that is of no advantage to us excepting when we part with it.
– Ambrose Bierce writer (1842-1914)

– Samuel Butler, writer (1835-1902)

“Money is like muck, not good except it be spread.”
 – Francis Bacon, Essays

 – Benjamin Disraeli, Former

“Once I was in Victoria, and I saw a very large house. They told me it was a bank, and that the white men place their money there to be taken care of, and by and by, they got it back, with interest.”

“We are Indians, and we have no such bank; but when we have plenty of money or blankets, we give them away to other chiefs and people, and by and by, they return them, with interest, and our hearts feel good. Our way of giving is our bank.”
 – Maquinna Nootka, Chief

“It is not because things are difficult that we do not dare, it is because we do not dare that they are difficult.”
 – Seneca

“A true measure of your worth includes all the benefits others have gained from your successes.”
 – Cullen Hightower

“When we give, we simply make room for more to come in. When we become deeply, authentically generous, it signals to our abundant universe that there is a conduit open to receive and distribute. We become part of the vital natural system.”
 – Lenedra J. Caroll
The Architecture of All Abundance

“A man’s true wealth is the good he does in the world.”
– Kahlil Gibran

“Each man takes care that his neighbor shall not cheat him. But a day comes when he begins to care that he does not cheat his neighbor. Then all goes well — he has changed his market-cart into a chariot of the sun.”
– Ralph Waldo Emerson
writer and philosopher (1803-1882)

“Question: Is my scarcity caused by my feeling a resistance to receiving abundance?”

“Abraham: If it feels like discouragement, fear, uneasiness, frustration, if it feels like anger — that’s what it means. That scarcity feeling has all those feelings wrapped through it. They are all indicators of some resistance within you. What those feelings are actually saying is, “Ah, as I’m feeling this thing that I’m calling scarcity, I’m a vibrational mismatch to the abundance that I want. I want abundance, but I’m not vibrating there. So as I reach for the thought that feels better, reach for the thought that feels better… so that those negative emotions subside, now I’m no longer resisting. I’m allowing. I’ve lined up the Energy within me.”

“Once the manifestations start coming in response, it gets easier and easier and easier. Now it’s easier to hold yourself in that good feeling place because you have more things of an appreciative nature surrounding you. Your second million will come much faster than your first, because as you get comfortable with the feeling of the first, the second is natural. And the third and fourth.”

“Esther heard a very wealthy man, Ted Turner, saying, “The world is awash in money.” And he knew it as he spoke it. It is his experience, everywhere he turns. He gave a billion dollars to the United Nations. Money is flowing to him and through him, more than he could ever, in this lifetime and a hundred others, figure out what to do with on a personal basis.”

“The world is awash in money!” And as Esther heard him say that, she knew he knew that. And she thought, “I know that, too. He knows it so clearly, that now I know it.” It was something about the intensity with which he spoke it, that, in that moment, Esther knew it. And then, for the next month, she must have said that to Jerry 5,000 times. “The world is awash in money.” It was a titillating thought to her, because she, like you, had seen where so many people had pinched themselves off from Well-being, that she’d come to believe that the world was not awash in money. She had come to believe that only a few had it, and they had it stashed back there somewhere where others could not get it. She thought that there was a lopsided thing…”

“The world is awash in money! Do you hear what that means? It is awash in money. It is flowing for everyone. It is like Niagara Falls. And most of you are showing up with your teaspoons.”

“Your economy has always been about the exchange of human energy: As contrast produces a new idea within any human consciousness, the Nonphysical Energy to supply it flows forth. The economy expands proportionate to the idea. There is no shortage of anything. Those who believe there is shortage, hold themselves over in this place where they disallow the Energy from flowing to them. And so, in their resistance, they have it not. And then they say, “I am proof that there is shortage. And that man over there that is awash in money is the reason I don’t have any.” He has nothing to do with your shortage. He is evidence that there is an abundance.”
– Abraham-Hicks

“The Government should create, issue, and circulate all the currency and credit needed to satisfy the spending power of the Government and the buying power of consumers. … The privilege of creating and issuing money is not only the supreme prerogative of Government, but it is the Government’s greatest creative opportunity. … By the adoption of these principles… the taxpayers will be saved immense sums of interest. Money will cease to be master and become the servant of humanity.”
 – Abraham Lincoln, 16th president of the US (1809-1865)

“The money power preys upon the nation in times of peace and conspires against it in times of adversity. It is more despotic than monarchy, more insolent than autocracy, more selfish than bureaucracy.”
– Abraham Lincoln

“When money speaks, the truth keeps silent.”
– Russian proverb

“Money may be the husk of many things but not the kernel. It brings you food, but not appetite; medicine, but not health; acquaintance, but not friends; servants, but not loyalty; days of joy, but not peace or happiness. ”
– Henrik Ibsen, playwright (1828-1906)

“Being rich is having money; being wealthy is having time.”
– Stephen Swid, executive

“One percent of the nation owns a third of the wealth. The rest of the wealth is distributed in such a way as to turn those in the 99 percent against one another: small property owners against the propertyless, black against white, native-born against foreign-born, intellectuals and professionals against the uneducated and unskilled [which] obscure[s] their common position as sharers of leftovers in a very wealthy country.”
– Howard Zinn author, speaker

“When one door closes another door opens; but we so often look so long and so regretfully upon the closed door, that we do not see the ones which open for us.”
– Alexander Graham Bell, inventor (1847-1922)

“For money you can have everything it is said. No, that is not true. You can buy food, but not appetite; medicine, but not health; soft beds, but not sleep; knowledge but not intelligence; glitter, but not comfort; fun, but not pleasure; acquaintances, but not friendship; servants, but not faithfulness; grey hair, but not honor; quiet days, but not peace. The shell of all things you can get for money. But not the kernel. That cannot be had for money.”
– Arne Garborg, writer (1851-1924)
