“The grass is not, in fact, always greener on the other side of the fence. No not at all. Fences have nothing to do with it. The grass is greenest where it is watered. When crossing over fences, carry water with you and tend the grass wherever you may be.” Robert Fulgham
The Law of Attraction states that we will attract where we focus our attention. Many people don’t believe in the Law of Attraction because they put out their wish list and then focus on the reasons why it won’t turn up for them, why it hasn’t turned up, notice their lack and limiting circumstances and then wonder why their ‘order’ hasn’t been delivered. This is like planting a seed and continuing to dig it up to see if it’s growing. We don’t usually do that because we know that if we nurture the seed with the warmth and water that it needs, it will sprout within an expected time line.
Our thought seeds are no different. The Law of Attraction is as real as the Law of Gravity or electricity. We don’t doubt those? Perhaps it’s because we have our own idea of the timeline, and when our ‘asked-for’ stuff doesn’t arrive, we give up on our belief about it ever turning up. This is one of major reasons people say it doesn’t work – it doesn’t turn up in our expected time line. The other reason is being attached to it looking a certain way, when in fact with our limited perspective we can’t see how much bigger and better our thought seed could grow. So to nurture our thought seed, we water it with positive belief in it growing to at the very least our expected outcome, regardless of which side of the fence we are sitting at the time.
Enjoy watering your thought seeds! Robyn
“Life isn’t about finding yourself. Life is about creating yourself.” George Bernard Shaw
Do you know that we can all create the life we choose in any moment? This is not just some fanciful wishful thinking. It is a law! There is a part of us that we may call our authentic self or the essence that we were born with and this part never changes. Just like the sun that gets lost behind the clouds, that essence is always there and can be connected with at any time.
Many people who have got caught up in the personal development wave, search outside themselves for this part of them, not knowing that the best way to connect is through our own heart. It may seem false to create a new you, but over the years you have created the person you are today. So creating a you that is more in line with the authentic part, is no different than what we have done in the past. We may meet with resistance from the family of origin because we all like to keep things the same. It feels safe. If it feels good to live from your heart then you will want to continue and won’t need to continue searching to ‘find yourself.’
Enjoy creating yourself! Robyn
“No one imagines that a symphony is supposed to improve in quality as it goes along, or that the whole object of playing it is to reach the finale. The point of music is discovered in every moment of playing and listening to it. It is the same, I feel, with the greater part of our lives, and if we are unduly absorbed in improving them, we may forget altogether to live them. Alan Watts
There are a lot of messages out there about living in the now. What we do in this now will affect our future and what we did in the ‘nows’ of the past have created our lives as they are today. So rather than always regretting things that have happened in the past and can’t be changed, or looking forward to that perfect day in the future when we have achieved whatever it is we think we want, it can be very satisfying to live each moment to the full and to the best of our ability and let it go!
I know we all find it easier to feel good when the sun is shining. The trick is, to decide to feel good in any given moment. One way to do this is to regularly connect with the energy of our hearts, to get in touch with the goodness of our authentic selves and live from that place throughout the whole symphony. However I have heard a quote that says there are no enlightened people, only people having enlightened moments.
Enjoy living lots of enlightened moments from start to finish! Robyn
When someone leaves, it’s because someone else is about to arrive.” Paul Coelho
Have you heard that nature abhors a vacuum? And it doesn’t just apply to people. If we are wrestling with a decision and still have the belief that we have all the control over our lives then we may hang on to something longer than we need to, because we can’t face life without him/her/it. The Universal Energy or Spirit has a part to play in co creating our lives and has a much better view of how life could look for us if we are able to take off the blinkers of conditioned beliefs and see how amazing we really are and how to trust that inner voice to let go of what no longer serves us.
There are a lot of natural laws that we are never taught, that are as real as the Law of Gravity. One of these is the Law of Sacrifice. This states that something always has to be sacrificed for something else. This may be related to time, money or experiences. It may be something as simple as choosing a T.V. channel, if we are not going to record one. But whichever we choose we are still sacrificing something else to watch T.V. at all. If you want to study to get a degree you will have to sacrifice something else to be disciplined to do the required learning. We often think of sacrifice as giving up pleasures, but being disciplined to give up what may be of a lesser value, could open up the way for something of a higher value!
Enjoy letting go what no longer serves you! Robyn
