What does it mean to be rich?
Is it the accumulation of material wealth, or is it richness in life and spirit?
To be alive, is to be fully engaged and there’s a natural wealth that comes with that, independent of how much you’ve managed to accumulate for yourself.
To be fully engaged also means to be grounded in an ultimate reality.
Being able to manage the necessities of the here and now, without ever losing sight of the bigger picture.
Putting life into its proper context and liberating yourself from the shackles of pride, ego and expectation.
But to be full in life and in spirit, you must first learn to empty yourself.
To create space as to allow full Life and Love to dwell within you
To conquer your fears and submit yourself to the reality that everything in this life is temporary
So then it’s not at all about holding on to what you’ve got, but rather more about a proverbial letting go.
It’s only in this ability to let go, that anything can be given to you.
You can’t receive anything with a clenched fist – nor eat with a closed mouth.
