- Abundance: YOU ARE the Fulcrum by Deborah Lockett

|Many people are questioning why ďAbundanceĒ isnít showing up in their lives.|
Me too. This morning I was musing about my brother and his wife, who are self-made multi-millionaires. They can snap their fingers and have a delivery van turn up with whatever they want.
Iím saving up for a dishwasher for my son, whoís disabled and lives on his own. Why, I asked myself, do I have to save up? Why canít I just buy it and send it to him?
The answer was given me in a brilliant metaphor: the Fulcrum.
Imagine youíre in a childrenís playground with a see-saw. You sit on one end and a much heavier person sits on the other. You feel yourself being jolted up and down and have to hold on to keep your balance.
Imagine the heavy person represents all those people in the world who are trying to lose weight. Some of them are having surgical operations to slim them down.
And imagine you represent all those people (maybe living in the same neighbourhood as the heavy people) who are either undernourished, malnourished, or starving.
With things as they are, itís a bumpy ride on the seesaw.
But then imagine that a lot of new people suddenly walk into the playground, head for the seesaw and converge on the Fulcrum in the centre.
These people are neither overnourished nor undernourished. Theyíre exactly right. Thatís why they can go to the Fulcrum rather than having to go to one of the ends.
They hold the seesaw around the fulcrum and now, the seesaw is moving smoothly and not bumping any more.
These new people have evened out the weight difference between you and the person at the other end.
Thatís whatís happening in the world today. If youíve dedicated yourself to Holy Spirit in any way, either consciously or unconsciously, youíre serving as a Fulcrum on the see-saw of life.
That means youíre exactly right, and you stay that way. What flows into your life is carefully measured to be just the right quantity.
Youíll continue to serve as a Fulcrum until the whole world comes into balance. Meanwhile, if Abundance doesnít appear to show up in your life, thatís just an illusion. Abundance is what YOU ARE. How could you ever lack a thing that YOU ARE?
