Affluence is the experience in which our needs are easily met and our desires spontaneously fulfilled. We feel joy, health, happiness, and vitality in every moment of our existence.
When we are grounded in the nature of reality and we also know that this same reality is our own nature, then we realize that we can create anything, because all of material creation has the same origin. Nature goes to the same place to create a cluster of nebulas, a galaxy of stars, a rainforest, or a human body as it goes to create a thought.
All of material creation, everything that we can see, touch, hear, taste, or smell is made from the same stuff and comes from the same source. Experiential knowledge of this fact gives us the ability to fulfill any desire we have, acquire any material object we want, and experience fulfillment and happiness to any extent we aspire.
All of material creation is structured out of information and energy. All quantum events are basically fluctuations of energy and information. All these impulses of energy and information are the non-stuff that make up everything that we consider stuff or matter. The impulses of energy and information that create our life experiences are reflected in our attitudes toward life.
The principles that relate specifically to the creation of unlimited material wealth can be applied to fulfill any desire, because they are the same principles that nature uses to create material reality out of a non-material essence.
