Every time I write a post like my last one, I get a lot of people very excited.
Of course that excitement doesn't last too long and by now all the enthusiasm and euphoria are probable gone.
So being the very practical guy I am, I have to come back and talk a little bit more abut “manifestation” in the hope that it will cement better into your understanding.
Your mind is a window.
Through that window the universe comes into fruition.
Through that window you manifest the changes in your life.
Pretty simple, no? - Maybe too simple.
What people do not really understand and fully grasp is that our “reality” is the effect not the cause of change.
The real cause of change is your mind.
You will not change your “reality” until you change your mind.
What we usually do is to focus on changing our life our reality.
We want a better life, a better job, better relationships, better health or whatever we want.
Very few people understand that our life, our reality is the product of who we are.
People expect that the changes in our life, our reality, will change who we are, the way we are and feel.
We expect that by getting a new job, anew car, anew house or lover will make us happy, or that if we loose some weight will make us more self confident.
It doesn't work like that at all.
Like somebody said: “You have to become the change you want to see in the world”
You have to become the cause of change in your life.
This becoming of the source of your transformation, means simply that you have to drop the old way of thinking and get a new one.
To change your life you have to change your mind.
Here is where the opening of your mind to the infinite power and wisdom of the universe comes into play.
This is the key you have to turn, the “secret” sort to speak, of your manifestation.
Opening the “window” of your mind doesn't require a monumental effort.
It is simply a matter of faith – or in some cases, of utter desperation.
We all have done it at one point or another in our life.
You should know already what I am talking about because you've been there before, haven't you?
If you have never experienced this “opening” of your mind you are kind of screwed because it is impossible to explain it - it is like talking to a virgin about sex – bad example, I know, but it is late and I'm getting a little tired.
So I'll end my post with a little prayer for me and for you my friends:
God, give us grace to accept with serenity
the things that cannot be changed,
Courage to change the things
which should be changed,
and the Wisdom to distinguish
the one from the other.
Living one day at a time,
Enjoying one moment at a time,
Accepting hardship as a pathway to peace,
Taking, as Jesus did,
This sinful world as it is,
Not as I would have it,
Trusting that You will make all things right,
If I surrender to Your will,
So that I may be reasonably happy in this life,
And supremely happy with You forever in the next.
