If the wellspring of abundance has not yet appeared in your life, know that it is just in front of you. It is yours to receive, just as it is God’s to give. Universal flow is finding bigger avenues in which to carry basic energies into balance, equilibrium, just measures. Whatever form this universal abundance takes, what you receive when you finally have its bounty in your hands is the inspiration to look higher to the source. On the eve of seasonal bounty, where the fruits of the past are savored, remember: the true source of life’s gifts is above all that you can see, beyond the edges of the reality you know as established and defined. When you look at the source of gifts coming your way, look beyond boundaries familiar and expected. Behind the smile, behind the layers that shape what you see, there is only the totality of engulfing, omnipresent light. What form it projects will meet you soon enough. With open heart and empty mind, you are sure to receive the fullness of joy, and maybe understand the joke. This is the straightest path to higher understanding. It is well to receive it in awe.
