September 2013: My Cup Runneth Over

September 2013 Mandala of the MonthDownload the September 2013 Mandala of the Month

We are often made to feel that we are lacking in some way…that somehow we are not enough or that we don’t have enough. It begs the question…by whose standard are we judging our “enough-ness” and why? Is it coming from our ego, our families, our friends, other people, society, the media? Regardless, as long as we buy into this notion, we rob ourselves of our own inner peace and joy.

A way to reverse this is harmful thinking is to start from a place of knowing that we are enough just as we are in this moment. A while back I woke from a dream with this amazingly powerful message:

I am the Light of God, whole and complete just as I am

Whenever I catch myself in a place of lack, I repeat this affirmation to myself until I calm down and can shift my focus to this place of wholeness. From there, I can examine what’s really going on to determine what, if anything, needs to be done next.

When we come from this place of enough-ness, we become more open to possibilities beyond our limited fearful thinking. We more readily see the abundance of options; the ideas and synchronicities start flowing, supporting us in our own enough-ness.

When we come from this place of enough-ness, we allow ourselves to be at peace and at joy with ourselves regardless of what’s going on around us. We recognize that anything we do above and beyond our enough-ness is just icing on the cake, taking our enough-ness to even greater levels.

When we come from this place of enough-ness, we also allow others to experience peace and joy with their own enough-ness; prompting this variation on the message:

We are the Light of God, whole and complete just as we are

Ponder this as you color the September 2013 Mandala of the Month.

Happy Coloring!

PS: Just after I finished writing this post, I heard Billy Joel’s “Just the Way You Are” on the radio. Love the synchronicity of that 🙂

  1. Really good thoughts, and ones I need to remember. It seems that many people want us to think that we’re lacking so that we’ll want whatever they are selling, whether it be religion, or some new makeup. Thanks!
