CHAPTER 6 – Achieving Your Goals

Nothing is impossible, unless you think it is.

Abundance and Prosperity

Think of Divine Abundance as a mighty, refreshing rain; whatever receptacle you have at hand will receive it. If you hold up a ting cup, you will receive only that quantity. If you hold up a bowl, that will be filled. What ind of receptacle are you holding up to Divine Abundance? Perhaps your vessel is defective; if so, it should be repaired by casting out all fear, hate, doubt, and envy, and then cleansed by the purifying waters of peace, tranquility, devotion, and love. Divine Abundance follows the las of service and generosity. Give and then receive. Give to the world the best you have and the best will come back to you.

“To men who meditate on Me as their Very Own, ever united to Me by incessant worship I supply their deficiencies and make permanent their gains.” Those who are faithful to their Creator, perceiving Him in all the diverse phases of life, discover that He has taken charge of their lives even in the smallest detail, and with divine foresight makes smooth their paths….

This stanza of the Gita reminds us of Christ’s words: “But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and His righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.”
