The Illusion of Lack and the Reality of Abundance
In life’s grand tapestry, the concept of ‘lack’ is a human-made construct, something that we’ve collectively dreamt into existence. From the inception of existence itself, there’s never been an absence or lack. This means that the idea of ‘lack’ is not a universal truth but rather a product of our collective consciousness.
Bentinho once touched upon this, explaining that in the larger scheme of things, lack has never been a foundational reality. Instead, it’s a creation within our collective societal psyche. While some civilizations may echo versions of this idea, our society has been its primary sculptor.
So, why do we have this idea of lack? It seems that it’s to offer us an experience, something that contrasts the true nature of existence. By giving us a sense of something that doesn’t truly exist, it allows the universe, or the Creator, to experience itself in an illusionary manner. This illusory experience provides valuable lessons that wouldn’t be possible in more clear, non-physical states of consciousness.
Consider this: in the energy and consciousness realm, if you take an apple from someone, they still have that apple in another parallel reality. In our physical reality, it appears as if they’ve lost something, giving birth to the perception of lack. But this is merely a play, an illusion. In the grand spectrum of existence, there’s abundance in every nook and cranny. Yet, in our physical world, we’ve crafted scenarios where the idea of lack can play out, even if it’s based on illusions.
This notion of lack is potent and deceptive. When we believe in it, we feel terrible because it clashes with the fundamental truths of the universe. As Bentinho mentioned, lack suggests a void in existence, which is counterintuitive because existence itself implies presence, not absence.
Every time we feel a void or suffer, it’s typically because we’re anchored in some form of belief that lack exists. This belief is so contrary to universal truths that it vibrates at a different frequency, causing discomfort. It’s a warning, nudging us to realign with the universal truths.
The Bible, in Philippians 4:19, reinforces the idea of abundance: “And my God will meet all your needs according to the riches of his glory in Christ Jesus.” This passage underscores that abundance, not lack, is the divine standard.
In conclusion, it’s essential to recognize the illusion of lack and shift our consciousness towards the reality of abundance. By doing so, we align ourselves with the universal truth and pave the way for a more harmonious existence.
