The Abundance Principle: A story about forgiving generosity for enduring legacy
This is a moving story about The Abundance Principle – the idea that true forgiveness is generosity in practice. We are all called to live freely and fully in forgiving generosity. Life doesn’t always make sense – friends who suddenly turn against us, beloved spouses who walk out on us, coworkers who scheme to undercut us, family members who mock and deride us, fellow worshippers who stab us at the back even after serving them so well – yet, The Abundance Principle compels us to rise above the muddled waters of resentment and pettiness and extend forgiveness to others, not just barely but generously. Living out The Abundance Principle brings inner freedom and fullness, guaranteeing an enduring legacy.
Jack’s story shows us exactly how to do it, and highlights the steps involved in living out The Abundance Principle. As we immerse ourselves in his story, we suddenly discover that we are also at the center of the story – a story that is deeply human, intriguing, relevant, and freeing.
“The most important factor in achieving positive interpersonal relationships and social skills is forgiving generosity. The Abundance Principle makes a compelling case that forgiving generosity is the missing link in workplace engagement and satisfaction initiatives, and must be reclaimed by every working professional and business entity in order to improve workers’ wellbeing and productivity.” – Prof. Umesiri.
