Wanting things and needing things are two separate states of being. Many of us want things that we do not really need; the item simply feeds our ego.
Abundance is having what you need to keep clothes on your back, have a good roof over your head, and to have some food left over to share with others.
Living life simply does give one abundance without much effort. Being mindful of the work that one does, and the benefits of the work help achieve a spiritual state. Abundance follows. Meditating on life and spirit will also move one forward on the path to abundance.
Note that abundance is not about greed – lusting after things or more of things that you do not need.
