I find it interesting to observe the political arena and the mass consciousness regarding the topic of wealth distribution.
I feel most of the arguments made, as different sides of the SAME coin.
There really is enough for everyone.
It is up to each, however, to first believe this is so and to allow for the abundance to flow with compassion in mind and heart.
No one wins by taking from another. One need not be detracted from in order for another to receive.
In fact, you cannot be detracted from! (Unless that is, you choose to create the illusion that you can be… because you are so powerful, you can create that experience for yourself if you so choose.)
I enjoy this particular Bible passage, as for me, it speaks about manifestation, well being and abundance. Whether one believes in the the Bible or Jesus, etc., matters not. I would invite the one reading this to see through to the message this passage offers.

Jesus Feeds the Four Thousand
During those days another large crowd gathered. Since they had nothing to eat, Jesus called his disciples to him and said, 2 “I have compassion for these people; they have already been with me three days and have nothing to eat. 3 If I send them home hungry, they will collapse on the way, because some of them have come a long distance.”
4 His disciples answered, “But where in this remote place can anyone get enough bread to feed them?”
5 “How many loaves do you have?” Jesus asked.
“Seven,” they replied.
6 He told the crowd to sit down on the ground. When he had taken the seven loaves and given thanks, he broke them and gave them to his disciples to distribute to the people, and they did so. 7 They had a few small fish as well; he gave thanks for them also and told the disciples to distribute them. 8 The people ate and were satisfied. Afterward the disciples picked up seven basketfuls of broken pieces that were left over. 9 About four thousand were present.
Here, Jesus took nothing from anyone else. He was so in touch with the Universal Force that is Love, that through his appreciation of the force that created that which he desired to multiply, he did, and created enough for all that were present and even had some left over.
He took nothing from anyone else to give to others.
One interesting symbol to note here is the fish. From Wikipedia:
Before Christianity adopted the fish symbol, it was known by pagans as “the Great Mother”, and “womb”. Its link to fertility, birth, and the natural force of women was acknowledged also by the Celts, as well as pagan cultures throughout northern Europe. In certain non-Christian beliefs the fish also has been identified with reincarnation and the life force.
My last note on this, is that “about four thousand were present.”
Here, present is a key word for me.
We must be PRESENT in order to be in alignment to receive.
There are several other deeper insights and symbology in this passage that I won’t delve into here as it is my desire to keep this message as simple as possible in order to convey that we all are so powerful and by the Grace of Source/Creator, we all have the power to choose for well-being and abundance.
It is already within and it is limitless!
“May the Force be With You” 😉
