Webster's Dictionary defines abundance as an ample quantity, profusion, and an abundant amount of plentifulness. However, how the mind defines abundance and how the soul defines abundance is vastly different.
The mind perceives abundance as the plentifulness of material manifestations, and mainly associates abundance with the plentifulness of money. It sees abundance from the perspectives of the left brain, causing it to see it as a necessary part of survival. Consequently, what it associates with abundance must be tangible, and functional.
This left brain perspective sees abundance as an ongoing problem that needs to be solved. Because of this, it creates expectations around abundance, and uses those expectations as criteria for judging what it considers an ample amount. For example, if you don't have an ample amount of physical things to ensure your survival, then there isn't abundance. There's scarcity. If you do have an ample quantity of physical things, then there's abundance. When the mind deems there's abundance, it creates the feel good emotions associated with having enough. As a result, the mind becomes receptive to new experiences that it thinks will increase the probability of even more abundance. The mind wants to create a rational outcome as a means of understanding and measuring abundance. It sees abundance as you have it or you don't. You get it or you don't. And, if there is abundance, then the objective is to get more of it.
The soul, on the other hand, perceives abundance as the plentifulness of subtleties. It sees abundance from the perspectives of the right brain, causing it to view it as an integral part of thriving. What the soul associates with abundance are positive emotions, favorable outcomes, opportunities, ideas, and intangibles. Consequently, it doesn't have any expectations around it nor does it believe there are limitations to the amount of abundance that can be created. The soul sees abundance in the offerings of nature; in the love found in relationships; in the daily miracles; in the rewards in life; in our experiences, and in what lies within us.
The soul measures abundance in the qualities of love, compassion, kindness, and empathy. It motivates us to find abundance in the small forgotten things, so we can experience the big moments that define who we really are. The soul sees abundance as the freedom to live our lives without boundaries. It encourages finding abundance in the simplicity of life.
