Now is enough

Some people always have enough, and other people never have enough. The difference isn’t in what they possess, but in what they need.

There are people with warehouses full of possessions who still don’t have enough. And there are people with almost no possessions who have plenty.

When you have a strong sense of need, it gnaws at you constantly and pulls you down. That’s much different than being confident in having enough and enjoying the peaceful power it brings.

Yes, there are desires you have that are not yet fulfilled. But do not give up control of your fulfillment by diminishing those desires into needs.

Instead of needing what you desire, treasure the desire itself and the opportunity to fulfill that desire. Allow yourself the powerful confidence that comes from having enough, and from that confidence will come even more.

Whatever you have now is enough for now. Joyfully, thankfully, peacefully accept the wholeness and completeness of your present abundance.
