Scarcity means we don’t have enough, money, food, water or love.
Are you scared of scarcity?
What I have found travelling through outback Australia is that the indigenous cultures, dealt with scarcity in ways that meant they were never in scarcity.
So how did they do that?
They honoured the resources that were in abundance or in scarce supply. They only ever used as much as they needed, no more. They knew that in abundant times, not to take all that was there, so as to provide opportunities for regrowth for the next season or the next year, or for those that came after.
We in the city have become complacent with our resources. We have an abundance of water, food, for some money and others love. When we don’t honour those resources we have and when they become scarce we can become scared. What will we do?
My answer is this, live with honour for all that you have, all the resources in your life, such as water, food, money and love. Honour them, use them for what you need, prepare for times of scarcity when abundance abounds.
When we honour and respect our resources we can live comfortably in times of scarcity and in times of abundance. A lesson well worth learning.
With honour and respect Tracy xx
