The simple truth is, we cannot commit to anything until we commit to ourselves.
Recognizing where we come from, and to What we are connected is important for commitment to self to take place.
Until the relationship between self and Source is our priority, we will go on chasing after illusions of acceptance through reputation and material success.
Nothing is more important than making the commitment to know self and Source through a daily practice. Abundance and everything else flows from such daily reminders of who we essentially are.
