Depth & qualitative measures of value

Abundance is about power and maturity and up-grown-edness and the ability to transition to adulthood where responsibilities and duties over-shadow opportunity and adventure. Implicit in all that is the role of stewardship coupled to the humility of reverence so that one can keep their sights clear and their eyes on the prize.

The essence of stewardship is care-taking, and the essence of humility is contentment. Both these values measure the dimension of depth rather than of scale. As a living being grows-up its value system shifts from scale and quantitative measures of value to depth and qualitative measures of value.
