“Because true belonging only happens when we present our authentic, imperfect selves to the world, our sense of belonging can never be greater than our level of self-acceptance.”  – Brené Brown

Illumina East is one year old! How much has happened in such a short time, and yet, what has happened? It’s so hard to recognize growth in our life sometimes. What is measurable? Is measure even a sign of progress? Does more of things mean we are more prosperous?
What allows you to be more you? What allows you to be the most you? What is the most you? To experience prosperity is not to take yourself to an extreme, or to feel like you are financially taken care of, it’s a recognition that the journey of your soul is fully supported. You are free to be you. To express yourself, to experience yourself. How do you deal with success and failure? Are you defined by it, or do you experience fortune and adversity the same?
“We have to stop being transactory in order to be resurrectory”. Yogi Bhajan
When we think of all interactions as transactions we are inhibited from the deeper experience, meaning, and possibility that’s there to receive and give. That’s the difference between a financial interaction and a soul experience. Obviously if you order a sandwich at sandwich shop and you receive a bicycle tire there’s something to be contested. But if you approach all experiences as though you should receive the one thing you expect, there is no space to receive something more. That is true prosperity. You might or might not receive the thing that you expected, but if you are open to receive what is really there to be had outside of your beliefs, you open yourself to infinite possibility.
