HEY, I ORDERED STEAK;, WHY DID THEY BRING ME CHICKEN?
So many times we wonder why we pray, affirm, wish & hope for 1 thing, but ultimately end up with the other? I”ll tell you: It is The Law Of Attraction, doing what it does, matching each of us with EXACTLY what we have been asking for! We may be looking for success and $$, but we continuously focus on our LACK of success, and NEED for $$, and that is what we end up with more of: LACK & NEED.
If we play in the mud and shout “I‘m clean” we will still be muddy. When we walk in the rain, even if we scream to the heavens ” I’m Dry”, we will be wet.
WHAT WE FOCUS ON, EXPANDS, WHAT WE DWELL ON, WE ATTRACT, WHAT WE THINK ABOUT, WE CREATE.
It took me quite a while to understand this. The LOA ( Law of Attraction) and Judeo-Christian teachings all tell us anything is possible with faith. Millions if us everyday, pray, or recite affirmations, meditate, and hope for the resolution of our problems and manifestation of our dreams & desires. So how is it then, that we are not all basking in the joy of our creation? There is a relative contradiction at play that we must be keenly aware of and ever so careful to avoid. All conditions in our reality are relative; meaning for up to exist, there must be down, in/out, high/low/ happy sad/ and so on. There is no reality without relativity.
In the case of our individual life conditions; one causes the other. Poverty, creates the need for financial stability, sickness creates the desire for health, sadness is the catalyst for seeking happiness. The clergy, and the Gurus, the life coaches and authors, all tell us to keep a positive mind related to our desires and we will in fact create them. Jesus told that our faith would set us free, and if we pray as though we have already received our prize, it would be so.
BUT MORE OFTEN THAN NOT, IT IS NOT!
This is because, while mired in financial ruin, our minds are swirling with the pain the debt has caused, the fear and uncertainty of what lies ahead, and the myriad of bill collectors at our door as we recite our affirmations and say our prayers.
Keep your mind focused on the desired end result, and that is what will appear! This is what makes faith so difficult. Faith is more than just exclaiming “I BELIEVE”. It is a deep inner knowing in the truth of what you believe. This knowing brings with it a certainty that offers relief from fear and dread. The new lightness of being, created by the knowing that our desire is manifesting, is what allows the condition to unfold. This knowing, and certainty can only overtake us if our thoughts are focused on abundance, not lack and how to get out of it, or success, not failure and how to transcend it. While the mind entertains thoughts of the negative condition which was the catalyst for our desire, we feel the angst and grief it caused, and attract more of it. These inner thoughts, directed at the cause for our desire are what executes the BAIT & SWITCH. I for one know how difficult it is to stay focused on only what we wish to see, but it is requirement for creating ANYTHING!
Keep your mind focused on the desired end result, and that is what will appear! Dwelling on the problem causes it to grow.
The JOURNEY IS, the Destination!
