Exert Less Effort!

Monday, March 26, 2012

You assume that you have to work to make your dreams come true, when in fact most of the work you run around doing is preventing your dreams from coming true.
The less effort expended, the better. To think in a more orderly, conscious, efficient manner you first have to eliminate habits of thinking that obstruct the universe’s ability to carry out your desires.
Imagine that your mind is a radio transmitter, bombarding the field with messages. If you sit quietly and observe your mind, you will see that it is full of mixed signals. The things we want to accomplish we also have doubts about; the person we want to turn into is also someone we aren’t quite sure about.


Adapted from Twenty Spiritual Lessons for Creating the Life You Want, by Deepak Chopra (Harmony Books, 1995).

Hope you enjoyed that....

    There is nothing I have ever really wanted and asked for that I have not received. It may not have come in the time frame I initially desired and it may have looked different, that is had a different form than what I'd asked for or expected but that usually turned out for the better anyway. I have discovered that when something doesn't work for me, it's usually because I'm carrying around some colloquial wisdom that is at odds with my desire or a latent belief that I don't deserve, it's going to be too hard, whatever. Sometimes I've had to work for it but that's not mandatory - sometimes its been an absolute miracle and there's no doubt about it.
    I enjoyed reading this blog this morning.
    Thank you!

    Thanks Sylvia - very thought provoking.
    I have this quote on the wall above my desk - you might enjoy it.

    “The greatest revolution of our generation is the discovery that human beings, by changing the inner attitudes of their minds, can change the outer aspects of their lives.” ~William James
    Have a great week.
