Guilty About Seeking Abundance, When There Is So Much Suffering In The World?

Apr 3, 2008
You must be the change you wish to see in the world - Mahatma Gandhi

A question I am constantly asked in my Law of Attraction workshops is "How can we feel good about claiming abundance when there are so many people suffering even without primary needs?"

Do you realize that when you feel sympathy and sadness for the people who are suffering, you are not in any way helping them? Do you realize that your sadness or by being in poverty yourself you are not contributing to the world.

On the other hand by empowering yourself, you have the power to empower many people.

One of my clients was gifted with a new car by her husband. She refused the gift because she was feeling guilty about driving a new luxury car when there were people who were suffering for basic needs. She used the public transport and was wasting time everyday in travel. Is this empowering? Is she helping anyone? Is she helping herself? She was frustrated and irritated with the inconvenience. Can she really make another person happy?

Only a happy, content and empowered person can think clearly about how he/she can contribute to the world, not a person who is himself in pain and suffering.

If you have concern for the world, your kindness is beautiful. Your kindness indicates your connection to the divine. If you can with your current life situations help somebody, do it happily and with gratitude for the opportunity to serve. If you cannot do that right now, work on creating abundance in your life, so that you can touch many other lives.

It is also good to realize people who are suffering have chosen difficult paths. You must respect their path. Some of them are ready to heal and change their lives and some are not. We need to help people who are ready in ways that we can and when we are ready.

If you have dreams that need to be fulfilled, challenges that need to be sorted, first work in being abundant yourself.

Three reasons how your abundance can help in transforming our world

1) When you empower and surround yourself with an abundance of health, wellness, love and wealth you are a happy, peaceful and giving person. You now have the resources, energy and enthusiasm to help others succeed.
2) When you heal yourself completely and embrace an abundance of wellness into your life, you will in the process release judgements and criticism. You will extend love and kindness to everyone you meet and your presence itself becomes a healing and empowering influence.
3) When you become highly successful yourself, you can share your knowledge with other people and help them create abundance in their lives.

By healing and empowering yourself you become a beautiful reflection of the source energy. In this state you have kindness, love and potential to transform the world around you.

Remember embracing abundance is not only your divine right; it is also your divine responsibility
