Ok in yesterday’s post I said you have two choices if you want to break through. Choice number one, you can be the victim…
“Man everything was going great. I was succeeding, making more money, and then, ‘Bam,’ out of nowhere I got sick/the project was cancelled/the economy took a dive/my ex-wife sued me/the condom broke/blah, blah, blah.” You see yourself as the innocent victim, and the universe as the guilty party.
Or choice number two...
You say, “I guess the universe is trying to tell me something.” You use the setback as a stepping-stone. You gain knowledge, wisdom and character, so the next time you can prevail.
Everything around us is governed by universal laws. If you throw an apple in the air, gravity brings it back down. If you drive your Ferrari around a turn at 120 miles per hour, centrifugal force will pull it to the side. The “spiritual” laws are no less exacting.
If you don’t pay your tithe at the source of your spiritual nourishment, you’ll pay it at the hospital, transmission shop, or traffic court. You can withhold and “save” all your love, but you’ll find your bank account empty when you go to check your balance.
When I reach a brick wall, I see it as a challenge for me to overcome. I have to go above, around it, under it or through it. And I usually do. But when I get through the wall, and see that there’s another...and another – I begin to think that the universe is giving me a lesson.
And the thing with the universe is, when you don’t learn a lesson – you keep getting the opportunity to try again. So you can quit and say all the cards are stacked against you. Or you can change YOU, and try another angle.
You can stay in victim-hood, believing you are at the mercy of outside circumstances. Or you can take responsibility and manifest your own destiny.
Which one do you choose? Think about that and please check in below.
