We are accustomed to lack. Our country is built on a financial system structured around this very idea -- the idea of credit, debt, lack. Think about it. Credit is merely the illusion of money where there is none (for the borrower, at least). And being in debt has become an accepted state.
Being "in debt" means lack. It means there's a part of your life that's still "out there." It's a huge focus on something that isn't. It pervades our consciousness, dominates our thoughts, affects our relationships...and yet "it" is merely an idea we've created out of something that is not.
Of course, we have to take care of debt. That isn't the point. The point is that we've become fixated on the idea of lack. And this keeps us imprisoned in a reality of our own making, one where we have no power.
But the good news is that once we recognize this, we can start to look instead more at what is. Instead of looking at what we owe, or what we want, or what we could be, we can choose to look at what is. You can't see lack. You can actually only see abundance. Think about it.
Today, I encourage you to look around you and notice that you only see with your physical eyes what is, not what isn't. I encourage you to focus on what you see today, and notice how that keeps you in the present moment. It is from this place, the present moment and the fullness we see in it, that we discover that the whole world truly does belong to us.
