What Constitutes Our Abundance?

Last Update: September 25, 2021

Quote of the Day:

“Not what we have but what we enjoy constitutes our abundance.” Jean Antoine Petit-Senn

Meaning of the Quote:

It is not our worldly possessions that create our abundance but rather, it is the simple things in life that bring us joy in our everyday living.

Discussion of the Quote:

Yes, it is the things that we do not own nor what we consider possessions that we enjoy, that make up our abundance. Things like our families, they are not our personal possessions, but we enjoy spending time and doing activities with them - most of the time. Sometimes it is even unimaginable living our lives without our families around.

Additionally, personal possessions are in our lives to serve specific purposes and functions and to help us to get some jobs done that will contribute to our well-being. However, our real joy comes from doing and being and not necessary possessing.

Final Thoughts:

Very often we think that our personal possessions are what constitute our abundance. However, the quote rightfully states that it is not our possessions, but rather, it is the things that we enjoy which make up our abundance in life. There are many people in the world with huge amounts of personal possessions but they are lacking in the things that bring them joy. On the flick side, there are people who possess very little personal possessions yet they have an abundance of things that bring them joy.

More importantly, our joy does not lie in our possessions, but in being in the presence of others that we enjoy spending time with and being present in the moments of our lives. Additionally, activities are where our joy lies. It is in doing, being, believing, hoping and experiencing things, places and people that bring joy to our lives.

I appreciate your time, comments and likes.

To our success

Kind regards,

Hello Nichola, it's a pleasure to see you again and associate with you here.

When you get past everything in your mind, get past everything in your heart, and get past everything in your body, and get into your greatness into your Spirit there's no worries, no Doubts, and no fear, and all the abundance is free...Love, goodness, kindness mildness, beauty, gratitude thankfulness, forgiveness, truthfulness, believing, faithfulness, integrity these cost nothing, and are everywhere you go...joy, happiness ,visualization, imagination meditation and many many more in abundance. You are right you don't need material things to be joyful and happy.Be thankful, grateful for who we are and what we have now. 🙏🌹🙂

I enjoy my family, coffee and cake, walks in the bush and our beautiful garden. Some are possessions, some aren't. Jim

We always perceived abundance as plentiful or significant in quantities or numbers or lacking of nothing. It is also the presence of joy in life.

Very true, Nichola! We can have essentially nothing and enjoy the gift of life. After all, we are born with nothing and we die the same way!
