In previous posts, I looked at resources as things-nouns, development-verbs, and possibility-light. With these basics of resources, I can show you how they shift the understanding of the big questions for resources. Looking at the possibility-development-things levels, you experience the substances or resources that support you in very different ways. When you experience scarcity in the inner circle of the figure below, the resources you have are very tangible nouns, with which you can work. Economists call these the factors of production – the few nouns you have with which you can produce something.
In the middle circle, you find tangible and intangible resources that accumulate over time, depending on how much is flowing into and out of them. In the outer circle, resources are how you manifest what you give your intention and attention to – of all the possibilities you could bring into reality, energy starts to converge around what you bring to life. What do the noun-verb-light levels show about the dominant principles for working with resources in each circle?
Anything that you manifest, that you make real, has gone through a light-verb-noun process. As will be clear from everything discovered to now, if you start from the light level, you start with abundance and choose for what is manifested here and how. If you start from the noun, you end up walled into starting with an assumption of scarcity, which will not allow you to get very far. In the next posts, I will develop that understanding step by step. While it will take a little while, it will be worth it, as you will then be able to see both the brilliance of what humanity has learned over thousands of years, and how you can make much better use of that learning by starting with different assumptions.
