Sufficiency is not the same as abundance (abundance is more than we need—it is excess), and in the context in which I’m speaking, abundance is merely the flip side of scarcity. You strive to get more than you need because you believe or fear there is not enough. Sufficiency is precise. It means that things are sufficient, exactly enough. There is a principle of sufficiency, and it is as follows: When you let go of trying to get more of what you don’t  really need, [you can] make a difference with what you have. Lynne Twist


What helps you remember to value your inner riches over your outer riches? How can sufficiency help you find a still point in a busy day and in a busy life?
