I love sitting in my kitchen watching hummingbirds enjoying the nectar in the feeder hanging outside the sliding door. I find them to be fascinating. One day as I was sitting there waiting for one to show up, I saw two of them flying by. One was chasing the other. The pursuite went on for about 3 minutes, as one wanted to feed and the other not wanting to share. The one that wanted to feed was flying in a circle until he found safety behind a flowerpot. It was funny to watch the pursuer flying around now searching for the one hiding. He finally decided to fly to the nearest tree and stand guard. The one behind the flowers thought the scene was safe and came out from hiding. He flew to the feeder and a second later the chase started all over again. They both disappeared and came back alone a while later.
A thought occurred to me… “If they only knew they had plenty of supply, they would both be sitting on the ledge of the feeder enjoying the unlimited amount of nectar they are both entitled to, because of who they are. Lovely birds we welcome back each year. We supply them with food for our enjoyment and theirs as well.”
This happening reminded me of the teachings of Wallace Wattles in his book – The Science of Getting Rich – as he says:
“There is no limit to the supply of Formless Stuff, or Original Substance. The universe is made out of it; but it was not all used in making the universe. The spaces in, through and between the forms of the visible universe are permeated and filled with the Original Substance; with the Formless Stuff, with the raw material of all things. Ten thousand times as much as has been made might still be made, and even then, we should not have exhausted the supply of universal raw material. No man, therefore is poor because nature is poor or because there is not enough to go around…….. Thought is the only power which can produce tangible riches from the Formless Substance.”
We may lack in our awareness now, but unlike the hummingbirds, we have the mental ability to connect our awareness to the Original Substance as Wattles calls God, the Universe, Source etc…
What is one idea, belief or opinion you would be willing to see differently today, so you could experience more abundance in any area of your life?
