Primitive civilizations thought the sun deserted them every night, and the moon disappeared every morning. It never occurred to them that the planet they were on was orbiting the sun and turning away each day. Prosperity and our relationship to it has a similar dynamic. When you’re dealing with disease, poverty, or lack, it’s convenient to think that prosperity has disappeared or abandoned you. But like the sun, prosperity doesn’t disappear, we just sometimes turn away or fail to notice it.
Prosperity is a state we create, and we can create abundance anywhere. There are no places on earth where prosperity doesn’t exist, merely places where humankind has not yet manifested it.
This holds true in the poorest barrios, war zones, and famine-stricken areas. There is no place in the universe that prosperity is absent. Prosperity exists as a metaphysical substance, surrounding us in the ethers, waiting for us to call upon it through thought energy, more specifically, the power of ideas. (Here's a deep dive into how to do that.)
What we sometimes perceive as a money, skill, or talent shortage, is much more likely an idea shortage.

I really like the comparison to the sun and moon.
It's true when we turn away from prosperity and focus on poverty, disease or lack the prosperity is still there behind our back but it's difficult to turn around when you focus on what you don't want.
And vice versa when you focus on the good things you can leave the things that you don't want behind and follow the path to get more good things.
