Wallace D Wattles wrote a book called The Science of Being Rich. It’s a small book, around 60 pages, and in it he says, “To think according to appearance is easy; to think truth regardless of appearances is laborious and requires the expenditure of more power than any other work man is called upon to perform.”
Many times, we look at our bank account or our living situation, and we think that’s reality. What if I told you that there is no poverty, there is only abundance?

Tonight, or any clear night, go outside and look up at the stars. Where does the universe end and begin? The Upanishads say, “Out of abundance, he took abundance, and still abundance remained.”

Here’s another example. Is my hand solid? No. You want to say yes, of course it’s solid, but, in truth, it’s not. If we put it under a microscope, you’ll see that the skin is just a bunch of molecules, a dance of energy. When your life is done and you’re six feet under, you’re still moving while your body returns to the dust.
