The Abundance Intelligence® of E.C.
I saw God three times last week.
And he just happened to be playing a guitar.
Many of you who know me well know I have a “minor” obsession with Eric Clapton’s guitar playing. Last week, I was fortunate to catch his latest tour with stops in Boston and CT. Not only was his playing the best I’d ever seen, (and I've seen him 17 times) Clapton brought Derek Trucks this time and the guy (who started playing with the Allman Brothers Band as a teenager) produced jaw-dropping, raise-the-hair-on-your-arms solo after solo. It was a complete and total experience of pure, uninterrupted joy.
You may be thinking to yourself about now, “That’s great, Kim, but what does any of this have to do with Abundance Intelligence?”
When’s the last time you really connected with something that completely, totally lit you up?
When was the last time you were vibrantly, boldly alive right here, right now?
You see, until last week, I had locked away a part of myself. For the last 6 years, I’ve been so busy doing what I can do that I realized I lost a little bit of being who I am.
It took a couple of mind-bending, guitar blazing odysseys to recapture that feeling. When I hear an unbelievable guitar solo, it’s an expression of God to me—just like the quiet serenity of a waterfall or the whisper of wind in the trees. It’s proof that God, and abundance, are all around us, only waiting for us to see the beauty.
It’s also a powerful reminder of people like Clapton who share a glimpse of their brilliance by completely being who they are, and as a result, light up the world.
How do we go through our daily lives, forgetting the beauty before us, blind to the abundance right here and right now?
When we are filled with joy, all is possible. Life is easier, sweeter, perfect. Last week was a powerful reminder for me that abundance is about harmony – finding the harmony between being who you are and doing what you can do.
Where is your harmony?
