Growth

By Zhang Xinyue from the Book Create Abundance II

Growth is
Neither what you can wait to attain in a deep valley as a hermit.
Nor what you can find on the other pure land after you die.

Now,
Make up your mind to confront yourself,
Now, if you truly face yourself with elevated strength
You will get liberated from the current secular life,
And accomplish Nirvana through reincarnation in the present moment.
The torment will never re-present itself
Life will undertake a wonderful change

Practice

By Zhang Xinyue from the Book Create Abundance II

All practices
Eventually lead to one’s own heart,
Including your habits, thought, attitude, faith and character.
An enlightened one lives a life as others do on the surface,
But it is different in essence
For every moment embodies the budding of wisdom,
A spontaneous adjustment
And joy that supervenes.

Hope

By Zhang Xinyue from the Book Create Abundance II

I hope someone will force me to take a look
At the wealth I have never known of previously
At the earth’s skyline
I hope someone will force me to take a look
At the limitation I was never aware of before
At the boundary of my soul
I am grateful to have chosen to grow
Transcended my fear about the unknown
Now I have seen them
Knowing at last my own infinite possibilities
Who would overlook one’s fortune

Creating Abundance within Yourself

Abundance can be seen all throughout nature. The trees and plants, the animals and humans are always re-creating themselves. The earth itself is abundant. It is full of life. But what does it mean personally to you?

Here is a quote from the famous composer George Bernard Shaw:

“Life isn’t about finding yourself. Life is about creating yourself.”
― George Bernard Shaw

His idea was that when we realize our full potential as human beings, we can truly experience life on a higher level. Most of us know what it means when someone says they are trying to find themselves. But what if we skip that and simply create the individual that we want be?

Once our souls are in harmony with the universe and we are at ease within ourselves, we can experience true abundance. It has nothing to do with your material possessions but everything to do with being at peace within yourself.

As we achieve this state of existence, we can truly enjoy our lives. Though every moment of our lives is not perfect, those who understand what Shaw was trying to say can search within themselves and find light, hope and peace.

This type of abundance cannot be lost or stolen. It is something intrinsic that dwells within us at a deeper level. This knowledge gives you control over your everyday life and over your destiny. Whatever you dream, you can achieve. The power lies in each of us to live an abundant life with joy, peace, love and all the rich blessings that go toward a rich life.
