Sufficiency

“The idea of sufficiency or “enough” is more important than ever at this time of global economic uncertainty. The kind of sufficiency that I am talking about is not actually an amount. It is a way of being, seeing and living. The principle of sufficiency is this: If you let go of trying to get more of what you don’t really need, it frees up oceans of energy to make a difference with what you have. When you make a difference with what you have, what you have expands. Another shorter, perhaps easier to grasp way of saying this: What you appreciate… appreciates. Gratitude is central to recognizing and acknowledging the sufficiency of what’s already there. When we turn our love and attention away from what we think we need to what we already have — financially, emotionally, physically and spiritually — and nourish it, express it, and most importantly, share it,experiences of profound prosperity, wholeness and sufficiency flood our lives.Embracing sufficiency thus becomes a radical step that will transform our understanding of economics and of wealth.
