How To – Live An Abundant Life

Wednesday, August 10, 2022

The abundant life Jesus offers in John 10:10b of the Christian Scriptures is available to anyone who is willing to follow certain principles.  We at Charlois Philosophy believe that those who dedicate themselves to the quest to be the best version of the person they were created to be will have life abundant; with qualifications.

The first of these qualifications’ rests on an appropriate understanding of what an abundant life consists of.  It is not a life based on the hedonistic principles many subscribe to.  Rather it is one that is based on the beliefs and teachings of the majority of the world’s religions and philosophies.  Love God and neighbor, keeping others needs in mind, doing what is best for all of creation, and other such ideas.

When we embark on a journey of continual self-improvement, striving to be our best, for the betterment of the whole universe, then we open the doors to that universe that God created and the abundance that is our gift from Him.

That is another qualification.  We have to understand that our universe, all that exists, is the result of God’s love.  People have many designations for this God but they all are referring to the same benevolent being.  The one that has no boundaries to the extent of His love and generosity.

Which brings us to the next qualification.  We live in a universe of abundance.  Everything we could ever need to thrive is waiting to be made manifest in our lives.  All we have to do is ask, believing that it is present and acting accordingly.

Many people have commented on this idea and have tried to convince the rest of us as to its truth.  As some have said, the universe is vibrating with energy, waiting to create for us the substance of that which we hope for in faith.

Jen Sincero, writes in her book, “You Are A Badass.” About different exercises we can do to aid in this process of manifestation, (I’ll write more about her book in the book review on Friday).  For now, just realize that she is only one of many who have tried to help us see the path to abundance.  Ernst Holmes, in his book, “The Science of Mind,” also speaks extensively about this topic.

As can be seen, if we look, there is no lack of teachers to help us on our journey to abundance.  Most of the worlds’ religions and philosophies have this abundance as their reward for living the holy life.  However, you don’t have to become a religious fanatic or philosopher to reap the rewards.  Study the teachings, implement the lessons, and gain a life of abundance.

Here is to that which you seek.  May God bless you abundantly.
