A Conscious Choice


“Both abundance and lack exist simultaneously in our lives, as parallel realities. It is always our conscious choice which secret garden we will tend… when we choose not to focus on what is missing from our lives but are grateful for the abundance that’s present — love, health, family, friends, work, the joys of nature and personal pursuits that bring us pleasure — the wasteland of illusion falls away and we experience heaven on earth.”

~Sarah Ban Breathnach, Author of Simple Abundance: A Daybook of Comfort and Joy (first published in 1995)
