There is only yes. That is the way the world works. It might have been nice if someone would have included this in my elementary school curriculum! Why does no one mention this? Maybe that’s one of the long forgotten truths known to the people of biblical times. I always thought that people of that time must have known things that we don’t know today. You know, like the answer to how the pyramids were built.
Your life is made up of what you give your attention to. All that you give your attention to, both the things wanted and unwanted. If you think about it, and put your focus on it, the Universe says yes, and you bring it into your reality. Now, it is more complicated than that, but it is also just that simple. It is not immediate, for one thing. Just because you think about cancer doesn’t mean you are getting cancer. And, if you focus on getting the chair in front of you to move without picking it up and moving it, it really won’t move by itself! Believe me, I’ve tried (you know because of the whole lack of muscles issue I have)!
The trouble begins when you decide what you don’t want, and don’t want it so much, that all you do is think about how much you do not want it, and put all of your attention on the thing that you really, really, really don’t want! You may find yourself thinking about things that you don’t want, because, after all, you can’t know what you do want, until you know what you don’t want! The Universe listens to you and sees what you are giving all your attention to, and it manifests in your life. But, it is so very hard for us to not focus on the here and now, when it is so prevalent. I do not want to be sick, but when I am feeling bad, and my illness seems to be in every aspect of my life, it is all I put my attention on. It is hard to think about anything else. If you have very little money, and all you want is more money… but all you can think about is how it is not fair that you work so hard, yet have little money… and you wish you had money… and you have never have had enough money… and you have so many bills… and you need a new job, and if you could get a better job, maybe you could get more money, etc.. You are focusing on your lack of money. You are focusing on what is. You need to focus on what is, less of the time. You can’t focus on what is in the present moment if you don’t want what is in that moment. Does that make sense? If you are able to put your attention on how great it will feel to have all the money you need, then your money will eventually come to you. It doesn’t mean the money will magically fall from the sky (or maybe it will). But, maybe you will suddenly come across a better paying job, and you will get hired. Or maybe you will win the lottery. You won’t know how the Universe will send money your way, but it will. I know, it has happened to me. I have literally had money appear out of blue. Not just once, but several times, and all in different ways. Now, if I could only get the good health to appear! I know I’m on the right track, because I have survived for many years past what doctors told me was possible.
If this all sounds crazy to you, then don’t do it. It’s that simple. If your life is great, and you wouldn’t change a thing, then you must be doing something right. But, if there are things you want to change, then focus on what you want to happen. I believe life doesn’t have to be all struggle, and hard work to get what you want. It can be as simple as focusing your attention on what you want to show up in your life.
