The Freedom of Enough

In Uncategorized on January 30, 2010 at 2:47 PM

What’s in a name? After all, it’s the ‘thing’ not the ‘name’ that matters. But I discovered about the Discover your Enough Point teleclass (new one starting in March – Free Intro Class on Tuesday, February 23rd) that the title wasn’t getting to the point. It’s not just about having “enough”. It’s about the sense of liberation you get when you realize that you finally do have enough. You are then free Read the rest of this entry »

How far will I go for “enough”?

Well, pretty far. I don’t know if this will attract you to my Discover Your Enough Point course or send you running in the other direction, but out of curiosity I went looking on the web for a song i wrote and recorded ten years ago on the theme of “enough.” Okay, so I can’t really carry a tune without someone on the other end keeping it from tipping off key, but it’s at least C for courage and I hope you agree it’s A for awesome lyrics… and still true now.

And the Discover Your Enough Point class has room for 5 more participants. It’s great information, revealing practices and comes right from my heart and soul and 64 years of living.  Click here to register.

I Have Enough, Do You?

By Vicki Robin

Excuse me sir, I know it’s impolite
But since kids are starving I thought I might
Just ask some folks to figure out rough
If they could possibly have enough
Sure more might be better but maybe it’s worse
Stuff taxes your serenity as well as your purse, so
Could you say as though it were true:

I have enough
I do,
I have enough,
do you?

Hello Mr. Buffet and Mr. Gates
I’m wondering if you could congregate
Billionaires like you who might have a few
More things than you’re needing and be needing nothing new
Since our forests are denuded and our waters are polluted
Could your fortunes be diluted and maybe contributed?
So would you say and have it be true:

I have Enough
I do
I have enough
Do you?

Excuse me Mrs. Bangaladeshi
I just have one very simple question
If you haven’t enough can we work together
If what I have will help you weather
Poverty and storms I’ll surely give
For you and your neighbors to love and live
So we all can say and know it is true:

You have enough
You do
You have enough
Yes you do

Hey everyone can you just guess
How we might live without the mess
Of some having lots, some having less
Let’s all have plenty but none excess
Forget lamb and lions lying down together
Can rich and poor learn to love each other
So we all can say and know it is true:

We have enough
We do
We have enough
We all do.

Listen now to the Women+Evolution teleclass from Saturday

In Uncategorized on January 11, 2010 at 5:50 PM

By chance or by luck or by some mysterious design, I was invited at the last minute to do a teleclass on Saturday as part of the Women on the Edge of Evolution series. The topic was Having Enough for Life and it was truly wonderful and here’s a link to listen to it.

To my great pleasure and amazement, registrations poured in after the class for both my free class tonight and for the Conscious Money Speakers Series.  Because of that, I’ve put in an addition free introduction to the series. Click here to join the free teleclass on January 12 at 5:15-6:15 PM PST.

Free introduction to Enough

In Uncategorized on January 7, 2010 at 12:23 AM

Last night 40 people and I “gathered” in a virtual workshop room to consider the rich questions of “How much is enough of anything? How do we know? What happens next – after you recognize that you have enough?”

Would you like to hear what happened? Click here for a recording.

There is still room in the class. Since attending the Gross National Happiness conference I’ve thought much about what makes us happy, what makes life worth living and how we can align our relationship with time and money and busyness and food and more so that how we actually spend our days adds up to a life we love. It really is my joy to explore that with a “room full” of equally curious and creative people, so I hope you’ll “come” to my class starting in January. Click here to sign up.
