Why Isn’t The Universe Giving Me What I Want?

In my post today I want to address two issues that I keep noticing as I read law of attraction forums and other blogs about the Law of Attraction.

First and foremost is the notion that the Law of Attraction “Isn’t Working” for some reason or another.

Second, the idea that some supreme intelligence OUT THERE in the “Universe” is either giving something to you or holding it away from you.

Both of these ideas are flawed at their core. Primarily they are flawed because there is no POWER OUT THERE, all power comes from within. Nothing nor NOBODY exists in this world, or the entire universe that either gives anything to you nor holds anything away from you.

It is all your doing. YOU, YOU, YOU - Your life situation and experience is entirely dependent upon you. There are many factors which combine to manifest your reality, but the primary factor is your thoughts.

Ego based thoughts project your past experiences and beliefs into the future.

Conscious thought and presence creates.

It is that simple. If what you desire to experience isn’t happening, it isn’t because the “Universe” isn’t making it happen, it is because your thoughts are aligned with Ego and you are blocking the manifestation - or I should say you are not allowing yourself to perceive it, because in truth it is already made manifest.

Come on back tomorrow and I’ll discuss how you block yourself from experiencing your manifestations.

My Ego Is My Friend

as posted Feb/2008

My ego is my friend because without it there is no thought, no thought process, no formed belief, and no desire. All of these things work together to create what I perceive as reality - NOW.

Outside of thought there is only KNOWING, this is the God State.

For some reason my ego doesn’t yet understand, the God State chose to become the ego mind, to create through a system of belief, thought, emotion, and perception a physical reality in which to experience.

I (this identity and thought machine) will never KNOW why, but I can discover the system which underlies this holographic reality I perceive. I can understand and acknowledge that all I think I know is not true and open this mind to every possibility.

As long as I am this ego with a physical structure & personal identity, perceiving an outside world - I will not be in the God State. That is ok. I can know that is my true self - beyond this illusion. I can choose what I believe, what I think, how I feel, and what I desire to experience - and when I do - I can recode it and experience anything and everything as I choose it to be.

There are two parts of ego there is the part that is self taught (back story/identity) and then there is the part that is potential (now). The difference between the two is how & what is created as reality to experience.

If we think back to the very first “memory” of ego, that is the beginning of the “story” of ourself - maybe it was feeling loved, maybe it was being reprimanded, or maybe it was feeling alone - whatever that initial thought - belief - perception - feeling was it set up the creation loop we’ve been experiencing.

this is the self taught ego - where everything is a spiral or offshoot from the initial thought. Each adding to the next to create our story.

None of which is true, it is just a story.

To tap into the potential reality - just let it all go…. knowing there was no truth in it, it was all perception - and choose to see things differently NOW.

Kill the ego - no.
Let go of what is not true - yes.

Are You Blocking Your Own Light?

Often during the manifestation process, I rely too heavily upon perception to gauge my progress. This is detrimental to the manifestation process. This reliance also happens to be one of my biggest hurdles to overcome on my path.

The reason relying upon perceptions to gauge the manifestation process is erronous is that most of us cannot see beyond the veil of our physical senses. In order to lift that veil and glimpse Truth, we must believe and have faith that Truth is made manifest even when it lies beyond our current perceptions.

We are locked into our physical senses, and only “See” or KNOW what we allow through our veil of perception. This SEEING of what we define as our REALITY is often even further refined and limited by our belief systems, our past, and our judgements. So, only a tiny fraction of all that is possible (TRUTH) is ever made manifest in our awareness, and we remain blind.

Perception is not Truth. We can believe it is, but this is in itself an erronous perception. Perception is simply that which we allow into our awareness, what we choose to see, to believe, or to experience.

In a very real sense, we block our own light, we block truth.

The truth is always the same. Perceptions change. Often we don’t see TRUTH simply because our attention is so focused upon our perceptions of the situation. When we take our eyes off of the prize, and stop focusing on our desires, we can only see through our filtered perception of TRUTH and we block our manifestations from entering into our physical awareness.

Seeing truth means knowing not only that there is more than one way down a mountain, it means KNOWING that ALL paths lead down the mountain. The truth doesn’t lie in anything you perceive, it lies in your desire, and it lies in your DECISION to be, do, or have that which you desire.

This is YOUR DREAM, fear not - all paths lead to your desires.

Are You Creating or Perceiving

“Miracles enable you to heal the sick and raise the dead because you made sickness and death for yourself, and can therefore abolish both. YOU are a miracle, capable of creating in the likeness of your Creator. Everything else is your own NIGHTMARE, and doesn not exist. Only the creations of light are real.” ACIM Chapter 1, 1:24.
“To think what you want to think is to think TRUTH, regardless of appearances. Every man has the natural and inherent power to think what he wants to think, but it requires far more effort to do so than it does to think the thoughts which are suggested by appearances. To think according to appearance is easy; to think truth regardless of appearances is laborious, and requires the expenditure of more power than any other work man is called upon to perform.

There is no labor from which most people shrink as they do from that of sustained and consecutive thought; it is the hardest work in the world. This is especially true when truth is contrary to appearances. Every appearance in the visible world tends to produce a corresponding form in the mind which observes it; and this can only be prevented by holding the thought of the TRUTH.

To look upon the appearance of disease will produce the form of disease in your own mind, and ultimately in your body, unless you hold the thought of the truth, which is that there is no disease; it is only an appearance, and the reality is health.

To look upon the appearances of poverty will produce corresponding forms in your own mind, unless you hold to the truth that there is no poverty; there is only abundance.

To think health when surrounded by the appearances of disease, or to think riches when in the midst of appearances of poverty, requires power; but he who acquires this power becomes a MASTER MIND. He can conquer fate; he can have what he wants.

This power can only be acquired by getting hold of the basic fact which is behind all appearances; and that fact is that there is ONE Thinking Substance, from which and by which all things are made.

Then we must grasp the truth that every thought held in this substance becomes a form, and that man can so impress his thoughts upon it as to cause them to take form and become visible things.”The Science of Getting Rich

“Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things.” Philippians 4:8

What is TRUTH? According to Wallace Wattles, the author of the Science of Getting Rich; “To think what you want to think is to think TRUTH”. A Course in Miracles defines truth as “The creations of light”, which is to say only those things which we create in the likeness of our creator are real.

Thoughts create. There are two type of thoughts we can choose to think, they are TRUTH or ERROR. Many sources refer to these also as LOVE and FEAR, or REALITY and ILLUSION. Regardless of the specific words you use to define them, they are two very different ways of thought.

Truth is thought which is not reliant upon your perception. This can better be defined as “Knowing” really, as it is not reliant upon your physical senses and the resulting perceptions of your ego mind. Instead it is more a visualizing of Reality or knowing of truth as you decide it is. When we see truth, we choose not to view the reality of our physical perceptions and instead look upon the reality we choose for ourselves. This is truth.

Error is thought based upon memory and perception. Memory and perception are tricks of the ego or physical mind which use your belief in linear time and cause and effect to make you believe what you see with your eyes and experience with your body is TRUTH. If you function from this state of physical awareness, you are not experiencing truth. You are not creating, you are simply perceiving in error.

Cause and effect in the physical realm - or manifested realm is not the same as in the realm of TRUTH. We create in what first appears to be the opposite way of how we believe “Cause and Effect” works.

Creation is not dependent upon anything other than Desire and Decision. You may examine your life at this moment and perceive many things, be they illness, unhappiness, poverty, or chaos - but what you see is only real in the sense that it is the product of all your past thoughts, it is a memory of all that you have produced for yourself. It does not have to remain your reality. If you choose to - in this very moment, you could look at it and decide it is an illusion made in error and you can cast your thoughts upon TRUTH - and imagine your life just as you desire it to be in every detail, and you can CREATE that for yourself.

The secret to creating the reality you truly desire is to see it. Not with your physical eyes, but with your mind. The secret is that no matter what you perceive with your physical body, it is only TRUTH if it is what you DESIRE it to be. Anything which is not exactly as you desire it - is simply an ERROR, which can be changed through thought.

Stop looking back at all that you created before, memories are illusions which become chains that hold us in bondage and prevent us from using the awesome power of creation lying within us to manifest our life and the world the way we DESIRE, THINK and BELIEVE it is.
