I don’t blame or complain about things, like the economy, the government, taxes, employees, gas prices, or any of the external things that I don’t have control over. The only thing I have control over is my response to these things.  Jack Canfield

Taxes—you can let them depress you as you fill in every calculation with agony—or you can get to work with excited expectation in the discovery of what you created in the previous year. Allow tax time to be an insightful and fun way to observe where you sent your dollars, which are, after all, a reflection of your current energy exchange.

As the saying goes, render unto Caesar what is Caesar’s—do your taxes and get back to your life’s work. You are here to be a creative expression of Spirit. Unless your call at this time is to be a changer of policies and expenditure plans, do not make trouble out of life’s situations. Deal with what is, without creating any additional emotional issues. Let any tension, stress, or thoughts of scarcity fade into the nothingness from which they came. Know that your reality is based upon the abundance of the universe. Any behavior patterns of lack that distort the plentiful circulation of Spirit as your life, need no longer affect your inspired awareness. Knowing that Spirit is your source, find joy in contributing to the common well-being of the nation, which continues to create a safe world in which you prosper. Recognize the abundant flow of good as your life now, and you’ll find yourself in paradise with a sustained consciousness of God’s grace as your sufficiency.

Spiritual Contemplation: Take a look at your energy around paying taxes. What can shift in you to make it a more positive experience?

Affirmation: I am grateful to live in an abundant world and share from my bounty!
