Celebrate the desire that is within you, and stop cursing the fact that it isn’t fulfilled!
It is the desire that is within you that is worth everything – it is life itself! You keep thinking that it must be manifested before you can feel good, and that is backwards.
The fact that it exists is the reason for the Life Force. There isn’t anything that you want or have ever wanted, or anybody has ever wanted or ever will want that is for any other reason than this: You want it because you think, in the having of it, you will feel better. And we are here to say to you, you want it because in the wanting of it, Life Force is summoned through you – and you are more alive. You are in the flow.
A woman, one day, said, ‘Abraham, I don’t think you care if my lover ever comes to me. I think you want me to envision him so clearly that in my mind’s eye, he is real – so real, that it doesn’t matter that he’s not really there.’
And we said, that’s exactly right. We know when she feels him in that way, the pain will be gone from her, and the Life Force will flow through her, and all of her goals will be achieved. And we also know, then he must come. But it is not about him coming. It is about him being a goal that is reason for her to focus, that causes Life Force to flow through her. It is about the Life Force flowing through her. We are delighted that you have unfulfilled goals, because as long as you have desire, Life Force is still flowing through you. From our Nonphysical perspective, we see the unfulfilled goal as the constant summoning of life.
You say, ‘We want fulfilled goals!’ And we say, Your goals will all be fulfilled when you get over being so unhappy that they’re not fulfilled – when you start being satisfied in the unfulfillment!
Being In The Flow is having goals that cause Energy to flow through you. It is being in such a place of expectation and acceptance of your eternal motion forward, that you are eternally in the flow. So people say, ‘How are you doing?’ And you say, ‘Great!’ And they say, ‘Well, is there anything not going well with you?’ And you say that, ‘Everything always goes well with me!’ And they say, ‘Oh, but I see there are these things incomplete in your experience.’ And you say, ‘Yeah, isn’t it great? That means I’m still alive. I still have wanting, I’m still summoning life. That means I still have the future ahead of me. That means Life Force is still flowing.’
So many of you spend your lifetimes arguing about what is an appropriate goal. We’re not kidding when we say you cannot get it wrong. There are no actions that are deemed inappropriate as such.
Sometimes people say, ‘Well Abraham, you scare us, because as you talk about absolute freedom, we are afraid that you might give people permission to do bad things to other people.’ Whether we give them permission or not, everybody’s gonna do what they’re gonna do, and you can’t get enough laws into place to keep that from happening. But we promise you, no one would ever do anything bad to any other at the same time they were connected to Source Energy. You never connect to Source Energy and lash out against anyone else.
How You Feel is Your Point of Attraction
You don’t stop very often to think about how you are feeling. And yet, how you are feeling is everything. How you are feeling is your point of attraction. How you are feeling is your asking from the Universe. How you are feeling is everything that is coming to you!
Most of you have not discovered that the Universe is conspiring to assist you. And so you work hard from an attitude of unworthiness, from a feeling that you are not enough, from a feeling that you have to justify. And what we want you to begin to do is recognize that the Universe is responding to the way you feel. So think about the way you feel.
Don’t think so much about what you’re thinking or about what you have or about how you compare with your actions or your possessions to others. Instead, think about how you feel. Ask yourself, ‘Am I sitting here in a feeling of well-being? Do I feel intimidated? Do I feel self-conscious? Do I feel inadequate? Do I feel unworthy? Or do I feel pretty good? Do I feel cocky? Do I feel full of myself? Do I feel in love with life? Do I feel exhilarated? Am I feeling fun? Am I feeling some passion?’
How you’re feeling is what your point of attraction is.
If you’re feeling unworthy, you can work day and night, night and day, every day, and yet not allow the very things that you want to flow, because your vibration is not allowing it, and the Universe cannot buck your current. How you’re feeling is everything. So if we were standing in your physical shoes, we would let the contrast naturally produce the desire, for it will. And when we feel a desire within us, we would look at it, we would recognize the weirdness of it, we would recognize how unfamiliar it feels, and then we would do what is our work:
‘I will do the work that I have been born to do: My work is to take that new desire and play with it in my mind’s eye, until it feels familiar, until it feels like the manifestation of it is the next logical step.’
Let us bring this to a place that if you get this, you will have quantum leaped into a new place of deliberate attraction: Most everybody stands here, dissatisfied to some degree, longing to be over there. But the whole point of that point of attention to over there is not to get over there.
The whole point of the goal or the desire is that the desire summons Life Force through you. That’s why you’re always wanting another goal, another goal, another goal. That’s why we say you will never get it done. So, ‘Why do I want that?’ It’s an interesting thing, isn’t it? The goal must exist to summon the Energy, but the goal can’t matter that much, or
it stops the Energy.
You’re wanting the goal for the sake of the Energy that will flow through you, not for the sake of the manifestation.
