Newton’s Approach to Abundance

Humanity’s suffering results from a limited perspective. Not seeing the whole picture and universal balance in all things. Materials are highly valued and people are scared to death to let go of things. But here’s the secret:

To give is to receive. To take and refuse to give, is to live in eternal scarcity.

Newton’s 3rd law tells us that forces work in pairs. An object exerts a force on a second object, but the second object also exerts a force equal and opposite in the direction to the force acting on it.

By giving to others, we are giving to ourselves. Life is dynamic, always in motion. The principles of the universe are manifesting through all energies and actions. Most school children are taught these ideas but don’t accept them because of the ego; the illusion that you have an “I” to protect. We are scared to death to lose control this “I.” The media bombards us with messages like, “you only live once” ad nauseam. We think to be wealthy, we have to take everything we can, lock it up, and never let it go. Only then will we have bliss…

This strategy is seeking the unattainable. Everything is always changing and it’s impossible to only have pleasures. When our prized possessions deteriorate or we are accustomed to them, our hunger for more is fueled in a rampage to want more, more, more and secure a future of absolute pleasure without worry. But, there is simpler way…

Faith. Not belief in a diety, but faith in nature.

Hold onto to your breath, and you will lose it. Let it go and it will come back to you.

Giving results in abundance because when we give, a force is returned to us. However, when we attempt to stop this give and receive system by only taking, we prevent things from ever coming back to us.

How to get rich: find a solution that millions of people need. Then become the best in the world at solving that problem. (It starts with giving value).

As Newton said in Philosophiae Naturalis Principia Mathematica, “I you press a stone with your finger, the finger is also pressed by the stone.” Each human isn’t separate from the universe. Our actions are part of the cosmic flow of energy. We literally receive what we give.
