“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
Sarah Ban Breathnach’s books, Something More: Excavating Your Authentic Self and Simple Abundance: A Daybook of Comfort And Joy were both influential in my pursuit of all things sensory. It was something that I had adopted, perhaps not consciously, well before I had read the books, but it was through these readings that I became more intentional in seeking and enjoying every morsel of the sensory life.
