I know the question is a bit leading but time and again, I have read at different places that Abundance is a state of mind. When the mind changes its state, the physical proof in the form of prosperity, wealth and everything you need follows? Do you think this is true?

That is an interesting analogy. Now, whenever I will see the penguins I will remember abundance... Nice way to frame it in my mind... Also, I tend to wonder, if it is our way of living which has made us link abundance to material things.
Savio thanks for catching on. I feel there is more than an analogy; it's areal connection. Your avatar evokes a feeling of abundance because the penguins in it are abundant and our animal selves feel that and share the feeling. yr last point - Yes!
That is so true.... Looking for abundance in whatever we have... Very resonating thought.... I remember my mom teaching this when I was a kid... I think she was a spiritual guru of sorts as much as you are... Thanks!
Without all the baloney philosophy about how the penguins find abundance in sharing their wings with Buddha, your answer is not only the most terse, but the most accurate one yet. Thumbs up!
Getting our state of mind to a peaceful place could be a challenge I guess.. But if we can achieve it probably abundance should follow... Thanks for you views beingwell...... Well your name says it all... :-)
Abundance linked to optimism... I like it .... Positive expectation, hope, optimism are all barometers of Abundance.... The challenge with poverty is that it is difficult for people to concentrate on abundance when most of the reality is scarcity...
In emotional intelligence, realistic optimism is demonstrably linked to optimal health, the feeling of being "in the zone," and the most relaxed, effective behavior towards outer success and abundance that is possible.
Makes sense Cristale... Law of Attraction, I think.. If we get what we think of, then why not think of abundance? Thanks!
Think of abundance. Feel it. Add being realistic and humble to avoid the grandiosity often associated with the Law of Attraction. Work long and hard in that state. Yes!
I think you are hinting towards gratitude and appreciation... So true.. When I thank God for the things I have, the more of those things come my way...Count your blessings does make sense... Thanks Lizam1!
Gratitude, for me, is like breathing in. It gives us energy. Grace is the resulting state, graceful energy leading towards happiness. This allows easy outflow of Generosity. The three G's(m): Gratitude, Grace & Generosity, are abundance conscious
Yeah, some years back when I was introspecting my achievements in life, I realized that many things that I had was because of me wanting them earlier... It is as if God has made a universe beautifully intertwined with our minds... Thanks!
Abundance and Fulfillment could be two sides of the same coin, I guess... A_K, you have really given it all... Really appreciate your post! Thanks!
To have goals and have a strong "Why" is great... But during the phase of achievement the mindset we have will greatly influence the outcome between Abundance and Scarcity, I guess... Thanks for your post and I see you have taken some time on that...
Stephen R. Covey was the first to suggest "poverty consciousness" as a state of mind leading towards a state of poverty. He developed his ideas along the lines that the opposite - Abundance Consciousness - must also exist. Chk out my 7 Habits hubs.
Thanks, Lupine - well said, and your last sentence is a reminder we all need to hear.
Thanks Sid, I value your philosophy and consider this a complement. Voted up on your answer.
True!! I have come across people who take home great sals and yet complain so much!! So pay cheques are definitely not an indicator of abundance!! Thanks!!
Savio - Thanks! Always remember, it's not how much money you have, but how you use it.
The post is indeed a mix of two concepts - "What you have? (Abundance or Scarcity)" and "What you get? ( by law of attraction)"... So if I have a feeling of having ample then by the LOA, I should have more of "ample"..
