Thousands of candles can be lit from a single candle Sketches in Stillness fb

“Thousands of candles can be lit from a single candle and the life of the candle will not be shortened. Happiness never decreases by being shared.”

Buddha, quoted on Sketches in Stillness facebook page


Scarcity and fear are our constant companions in our “civilized” society. We are taught as children to be careful, lest something “bad” will happen to us. After a few bad things DO happen, we start believing what we were told. We begin to think we are inadequate, not good enough, or need to try harder. Although we vaguely remember that we are perfect beings who are perfectly LOVED, we begin to believe what our culture believes.


We also begin to believe there is not enough to go around. That either you or I will not get what we need. There is not enough LOVE. There is not enough food. There is not enough money for a Christmas present for all the kids. We forget that we are infinite beings supplied by God. We forget that our good is watched over by the angels. We forget there is a reason for everything.


But, the truth is that all is provided for us. We have more LOVE than we can even imagine. Everything we asked for before we came here comes to pass. We meet the people we are supposed to meet. We are given everything we need to live and learn in the ways we ourselves chose.


And we need not hoard our LOVE or our money or anything else. All is in divine order and what we need each day is what we receive that day. The things of heaven are not governed by earthly laws. There is no lack of LOVE, happiness, joy, peace. These things are available in abundance for all to enjoy every day.


“God, help me trust you enough to let go of fear there won’t be enough. Help me remember that LOVE, peace, and joy are abundantly available for everyone. Help me let go of fear of scarcity and stop worrying. All is well. Thank you, God. I love you.”
