Abundance: Is This Sensible?

By Debbie O'Meara

In Lesson Five of his book Prosperity, Charles Fillmore writes:

"The sensing mind is filled with lacks and limitations; the spiritual mind knows only limitless abundance."

When I read this sentence, the word that struck me was "sensing." I had to think about why that word caught my attention so sharply. Was it because we don't often use the phrase "sensing mind"? No, that didn't seem to be the reason. Then it dawned on me. "Sensing sounded a lot like "sensible"! It's not just our "sensing, physical-world minds, but our "sensible minds that are filled with lacks and limitations!

Did anyone ever tell you to "be reasonable"? What did that mean? It meant "don't expect too much." Or "don't reach so high." Or "don't be such a dreamer." But haven't you noticed that the truly great things happen when we're unreasonable? Our senses limit us to what they perceive. What we can't hear, touch, feel, see, taste, we don't comprehend; it doesn't seem "sensible to us. But that limits us, our aspirations, our lives, to what we know. If we want to reach higher, we have to access part of ourselves that goes beyond the sensible.

Our experiences are so limited compared to the vastness of the universe, and the Universal Mind. It's almost arrogant to believe that we are capable of defining what's possible. And it's certainly counter-productive for most of us. It will only be when we let go of those sensible, reasonable boundaries that we allow to define us and our potential that we can become what we're intended to become, live the way we're intended to live.

It won't be comfortable at first. Change never is. But "comfortable can only keep us where we are now. Here's a homework assignment: This week, pick something "unreasonable that you know would get you closer to one of your most important goals. And do it. Don't try to do it, just do it. Maybe it's getting up early to exercise. Or doing something out of the ordinary for a loved one. Or calling a potential new customer. Whatever it is, taking that step will let the Universe know that you're serious about your goal. And until it knows that, it can't help you achieve it.

Makes sense, doesn't it?

"I want to just say 'WOW!' This collection is probably the best money I ever spent! I've already received many times over in personal enrichment after just 9 days. I've had a past metaphysical background, but even newcomers to this material will really benefit. Thanks again." ~ J.S. (Pennsylvania, USA)
"The collection is everything which you promised. And more! A superb contribution to the good of the world. Many thanks indeed." ~ R.P. (Georgia, USA)
"Just a short note of thanks for the library. I've only had membership for several days now but I already feel this is perhaps the most interesting compilation I have yet seen. Worth far more than the price of admission. The browser linked structure works well and makes it easy to manage such a large storehouse of information. It is rarely that I find something I like as much as this or that I feel strongly enough to write a note like this." ~ P.W. (Minnesota, USA)
