“You are prosperous to the degree that you are experiencing peace, health, and plenty in your world.” Catherine Ponder
Walk into a bookstore or troll the internet and you will find any number of books extolling the possibility of attaining abundance and prosperity. Mostly, they deal with attracting more money or more material possessions, as if having this kind of abundance means that you have achieved a higher level of prosperity. The true meaning of abundance and prosperity is lost to those who perceive money and possessions as of utmost importance. What may be surprising to learn is that your practice of yoga and meditation can lead you to discover the mother lode of abundance and prosperity deep within yourself.
“Well, that’s just not going to get the bills paid.” I can hear you thinking. But do not be so quick to judge, because your yoga-meditation practice can train your mind to think clearly, to stay focused and to maintain a positive outlook on life. By living in the present moment with awareness and integrity you can create the future with the quality of your thoughts. This can explain why some people have so much more than others. It seems unfair that there are people who get everything they want while others, with the same talents and intelligence, can never seem to get ahead. In reality there is enough for everyone to live a prosperous, healthy life with plenty of food to feed the hungry, medicine to heal the sick, resources to house the homeless, and experience to know that war only breeds more war.
