The Universal Mind is static or potential energy; it simply is; it can manifest only through the individual, and the individual can manifest only through the Universal. They are one. ~ Charles F. Haanel
There are two basic rules, which if followed, would eventually help you attract whatever it is you want to attract in your life. The first rule would be: Whatever it is that you want, you have to want it more for someone else. I know for those of you who are thinking more about their own personal needs than of the needs of others, might sound pretty crazy, but it’s not, and if you, for example, think about that life coach who intends on making a change in other peoples lives, helping them see the beauty and the great potential that lies in each and every one of them… you will realize that it’s not crazy at all…
Anything you want, can and will be yours as long as you’re not the only one who would benefit from it, but those around you also. If you are planning on harming another human being because of something he might have said or done, holding on to anger and grudge, you will be the one that will eventually get hurt and injured emotionally, because all of that pain will eventually come back to you, and because you get what you give in life.
You see, the more we give the more we receive, and the moment we realize that wanting something more for others than for one’s self is something as natural as the air that we breathe every single moment of our lives, the Universe would eventually pay us back, it always does. If you don’t believe me, take a closer look at the world you live in, and all that is provided for you at no cost. As you wake up every morning, do you see the sky, do you see the Sun shining, and do you feel it’s warmth? These are nothing more than proofs of unconditional love.
Even after all this time the sun never says to the earth, “You owe Me. “Look what happens with a love like that, t lights the Whole sky. ~ Hafiz
Just think how essential the air really is for the survival of our species. The air just is, present for all of those who need to use it, is there for us all and has no expectations. It expects nothing in return for the huge favor it does to all of us. We owe our lives to it.
Why wouldn’t the same thing be available for us? From all of the great lessons I have learned so far and from all of the great wisdom I have had the privilege of coming in contact with, all of them have the same message for all of us. Do you want something? Can you desire that something more for others? If you can, you will have no problem with achieving whatever it is that you want to achieve in your life, being willing to give to others as much as possible without expecting anything in return, and because of that, you will always receive more in return.
I am not only talking about material wealth here, about money and possessions and giving them away but also about caring for others, no matter how old they are, no matter what their religion might be, no matter what color they are, no matter their IQ’s etc. If you ask me, the greatest treasure we can give to our fellow man is LOVE. Love is the full package. Kindness, affection, and advice, your time, these are few of the many precious gifts you can give to others, and not only would you make their lives brighter, but yours also, and by doing this you might also discover that those things you were after, those things you were so eager to achieve, weren’t really what you needed.
The Universe works in mysterious ways and a lot of times we end up in all kind of situations that would prove us just that and what we wanted wasn’t exactly what we really needed, and by trusting in the very wisdom that created us all, we will always receive only that which we truly need and deserve… and this is where we go to the second rule of attracting anything we want in our lives, and according to this rule, you have to See yourself as already having achieved those dreams and goals, feel those feelings that come from that and see how empowered you get. Be willing to let it all go, release them all. Your dreams, the need to make them happen and also the idea that it might never happen… Release them go and surrender.
I know, I know. The second crazy idea for today, but in order for you to really make your dreams happen, and a lot of times faster than you have ever dreamed off or imagined, you have to learn to release the need of trying to control the outcome; release both the need to have that happen and also accept the idea that it might never happen. I know there are a lot of people who think that holding on to that desire will eventually make their dreams come true, and even though it does work from time to time, for the most part, it doesn’t.
When you go to a restaurant to have a nice dinner with the person you love, do you tell the waiter every 5 minutes what you want to order? Of course not. That will be crazy and you would probably get kicked out if you continue doing it. The same goes with your dreams and goals. You place the order to the Universe and then you let it all go, trusting that it will all be taken cared of.
By letting go, both of the need to have it happening and also the possibility of it not happening, you will know what freedom really feels like and you will be less stressed. That doesn’t mean you should just abandon everything you are doing and become lazy, sitting on the couch in your pajamas all day, watching TV and eating all kind of junk food, simply because you have released your need to have it and also accepted the possibility of it not happening and you can relax from now on. Do what needs to be done, take the right action, do your job, let go of the outcome, step back and choose to be present in the now, choose to enjoy life and see how great that feels.
I can tell you from my own experience that, not only you’ll not get the results you want if you’re not willing to detach yourself from the outcome, but you will also feel miserable, not being able to enjoy your day to day life, worrying, wondering whether your dreams would come true or not. How could anyone enjoy life by doing this?
How could you enjoy anything, how could you enjoy the beauty that is present all around you, the wonderful things that are already present in your life when all you can think about is that end result?
I saw a lot of people who became obsessed with their dreams and goals and eventually lost touch with who they really were, becoming neurotics and a pain in the ass all of those people around them, not a pleasure to be around them.
We can all detach ourselves from that end result, trust me. It’s not something impossible, even though it might look that way at first. If I can do it and if other people before me could, and still can, you can do it also. It might take practice, but if you really believe that to be possible and if you really believe in your beliefs, you will see how in time you will get better and better at it and what looked as impossible to you before, now comes naturally. By doing this, not only you’ll manage to set yourself free from the prison of your own mind and limitations that you have had no idea you were in until now, but you will be really happy for the first time in your life.
Of course you can think about your dreams from time to time, you can think about your plans and goals, but only as a reminder of where you are headed, knowing that by releasing them, you were, in fact, trusting that the Universe will take care of it, accepting the idea that it would all be taken cared of, without you trying to interfere, knowing that it will all be all right. It’s enough for you to program that dream, goal or whatever in your mind, knowing that it will transmit the right amount of energy in the Universe, allowing your brain to unconsciously start working for you, helping you to attract all the right people, situations, circumstances, ideas etc. , you might need in order to make your dreams come true.
The best part is that you don’t need to understand the making process and that all you need to do is know that it will all be taken cared of. Do your job and then step back and allow the Universe to take care of the rest.
