Enough, Less, and Do!

Lynn Twist wrote a fascinating book called Unleashing the Soul of Money. It’s about our spiritual connection to money. I encourage you to get a copy of this book, or pick up the audio version.

The author gives three different sermons, three main points I would like to share with you: 

  1. We live in a world in which we think there’s not enough. 
  2. We have a misconception that more is always better. 
  3. We’re deluded to think there’s nothing we can do about it. 

Enough 

The first lie, as Twist calls it, is a lie of scarcity – a belief that there’s not enough. We see this everywhere: 

 

  • I don’t get enough rest. 
  • Time is running out. 
  • I can’t get enough to feel satiated. 
  • There isn’t enough money. 

The first step to changing a bad situation, or a bad habit, of course, is to realize that we’re doing it. I challenge you, in the next 24 hours, to notice how many times the idea of scarcity crosses your brain – this idea that there’s “not enough.” 

Solution: practice gratitude for what you have.

Less

The second “lie” Twist talks about is that “more is better.” She asks us to consider the opposite: maybe more is not better! Do we really need all the things we accumulate?

Solution: practice gratitude for what you have.

Do

The third and final “lie” is “There’s nothing I can do about it.”

But the truth is, our actions and attitudes CAN and DO affect ourselves and others.

Solution: do something.    

 

Spiritual-religious advice: 

 

Challenge scarcity and practice gratitude.         

With love,
