Ever Think, “There’s Got To Be Something More?” You’re Right, There Is…

If you want more meaning in your life, give. YOU are the only one who can bring “something more” into your experience. As we expect the world to provide us with fulfillment, we miss the point of Life. We are here to create our own fulfillment. And fulfillment does not come from material things, it comes from enriching Life–ALL LIFE. As we enrich our lives, we enrich others’s lives too… not with a mission of saving anyone–because only they can bring “something more” into their own experience, too, but just with a mission of revealing our inherent Nature, which is happiness.

If your job is not satisfying, consider that it may not be the job but your resistance to the job, to a coworker, to your boss, or to the idea of working. Where there is resistance, there is fear. What is the fear? Does it show up in other areas of your life? If yes, then it’s not the job that’s the problem… this fear will keep resurfacing as a an invitation to deal with it head on and see it for the illusion it is. What would your life look like without that fear? Can you think of one healthy, peaceful reason to hold on to that fear? Then bless it and let it be. It is a learned condition, and it no longer serves you.

The same holds true in all areas of our lives. We see it most in relationships. Where there is withholding in a relationship, there is a power struggle. Under the power struggle there is… fear.  If you want your romantic relationship to be deeply real and wildly intimate like it was in the beginning, then BE deeply real and wildly intimate… not just once or twice to test the waters, but all the time. Your mate will either show up and meet you there or not, but to demand a deeply real and wildly intimate relationship of your mate first is unfair. And if you’re demanding that of your mate–notice the pattern–where else are you expecting the world to deliver the goods first?

As you take responsibility for your experience in every area of your life, your happiness–which is our inherent Nature when we live authentically–will bloom and grow.

Your happiness will empower others to do the same… and that is how it propagates entire families and communities. Happiness is always an inside job. We can only change ourselves and encourage others that they’re on the right path (and only they know what the right path is for them). When we tell others they are wise, capable, full of potential, and facing dozens of wondrous opportunities, even if they don’t see them yet, we are BEING LOVE and creating safe space for them to empower themselves to live authentically.

People let down their armor when they feel safe. “It is easier to get a man to remove his coat with a warm sun than a cold, biting wind.” Be wholly loving to yourself and the inspirational powerhouse you already are will expand into “more…” and yet more.

AFFIRMATION:

Today, I choose to give myself what I may be expecting or think I require from another; as I do so, I free up our relationship for wildly greater levels of Love, Harmony, Peace, and Joy.

See Yourself as You Want to Be

A vision board will help you feel the desired states of being and emotion on an ongoing basis
By Ernest Holmes

We are—and can only be—the sum total of all our thoughts and actions. Our subjective state of thought is constantly radiating into Universal Law the images of our entire library of beliefs… our beliefs around love, around life, around the world and our purpose in it. From these images of unconscious thought spring all of our outward conditions, the circumstances that make up this human experience. Deep within our subconscious mind are imprinted the memories of previous experiences… and therein lie the silent causes of our outward conditions.

Since the Universal Law which automatically receives our thoughts is always acting and never at rest, when we have chronic, habitual negative thoughts, we perpetuate experiences that we no longer want to have. What is needed, then, is a new outlook on the situation, a broader vision, a deeper realization. We need not be able to create this new perspective on the spot… we need only beopen to the possibility that one exists.  And of course one does.  In fact, the Spirit that Knows All Things has unlimited outcomes, all of which have already outwitted your greatest conundrum a thousand-fold.

The key, then, to success and happiness, is the conscious control of ongoing thought patterns and a continuous emission of constructive thinking and acting. This key will unlock the treasure house of the Infinite and reveal to us undreamed-of opportunities and experiences.

Because we are of the One Mind, any vision you can conjure of an outcome which is based in harmony and unity is already complete in the mind of Spirit.  It is Divinely ordained.

Visualization from this standpoint is a creative act that is never bothered by any existing condition or conditions. Once we are certain that our whole thought is harmonious and unified with Good, we may ask for what we want, and it shall be done unto us by the Law.

In visualizing, put the past entirely behind, where it belongs; nor think of the future, where it also belongs, but make your thoughts perceive the ever-present reality, which is only the NOW.  Do not worry about the “how’s.” God knows how!

Think of yourself as you would like to be, and calmly state that you are now in the position that you care to be in; that you are now doing the things you would like to be doing; that you now possess the things you want to possess; that your state of being is the ultimate state of being you can possibly imagine. Look at your picture as you would view a landscape, mentally dwelling on this picture, feeling the reality of it—the Joy of it, the Peace of it, the Love of it, the Prosperity of it, the Vitality of it—until you can sense that it is a reality.  Then leave the entire picture for the Law to work out for you, returning to your everyday affairs with perfect confidence that something is really taking place on the invisible side of your life, and that you will experience in outward form all of your inner aspirations.

As you speak as if the good outcome is already done, it is in the mind of God!
