Prosperity is much about what your hold in you hand, and even more, the treasures you hold in your heart.
When people hear the word prosperity, they hear this broad terminolgy race through their mind and immediately are turned off by the whole idea. Prosperity is mostly used in abstract, for life, by metaphysicians. This usually concerns love, happiness, peace, and development. Also, when tought by people we don't have much information, teach the word "prosper", we get on the defence. We assosiate them with trying to create the illusion what the word truly implies, wealth and plenty of material wealth. The world believe that we've heard all there is to know about prosperity, because we've been told the general defintion time after time.
Prosperity means to succeed at the art of building material wealth!
Abundance is being plentiful!
Just because one has 50 million dallars in his and her accounts, doesn't make them prosperous. But it does make him/her abundant. To being prosperous, means to be able to grow your love, friendships, as well as finances nonstop. One can settle for just being abundant by choosing to become humble with what he or she has to offer at the moment. That's humbleness.
Prosperity today creates room for society to be prosperous and humble as well as abundant. Society also says that it's okey to be prosperous, but be humble. If your prosperous and humble, then you're abundant and humbleness should already be appart of your life.
These two contrasting terms should not ever seperate or be confused for the sake of growth by spirit, body, and mind. When we begin to change our mind set, we open ourselves to the greater parts of the Universe. We become whole, even stablize to a new found enrichment in life.
The Concise Oxford American Dictionary defines the terms "prosper" and "abundant" as followed:
- Prosper- succeed in material terms; be financially successful: flourish physically; grow strong and healthy.
- Abundant-existing or available in large quantities; plentiful.
