The problem with the way most people are working on the path to success is that they are trying to drive themselves rather than allowing themselves to be driven. They are doing it the hard way rather than the easy way. It is the way that requires much effort and struggle because they are pushing themselves to do things rather than allow themselves to be guided naturally into action by their heart. If they would choose the easy and effortless way of inspired action instead, life would be much more enjoyable.
We think that since we are here on earth, we are supposed to do things to prove our self worth. We think we are supposed to make things happen. The truth is that you are not here to do anything, you are simply here to allow yourself to be inspired into doing what God inspires you to do. We are all here to serve God. Our identity is a being of light or an angel, a messenger of God. We are here to allow God to express himself through us.
- We do not do to live, we are to let life express itself through us.
We have been taught that in order to achieve big things in life, we should set goals. We should think about what we want and to set clear intentions to manifest those very things. We should come up with a plan of action to achieve the very things we desire. But that way of doing things is so unnatural and imperfect. It is hard to even think about what we want because don’t even know what we should want. We can’t even think what plan of action to take because we don’t know what actions would suit us.
If we would just stop trying to come up with our own way of doing things, we would eliminate all these tons of mistakes and struggles that we experience in the difficult and effortful path of creating success. The question to ask yourself is, do you want to play small or play big? You could try to set goals for things you think you should have and succeed in achieving them. But what you manage to achieve that way would only be very small compared to something much larger that God already has for you.
You were created for a purpose and everything you were supposed to do and truly desire to have are already created by God. All you have to do is to open yourself up to receiving all of it. You do not even have to think about what you want because your true desires have already been placed within you from the beginning. You do not have to think about what to do to get them because you were already designed to function in a certain way with gifts that seek expression through you for achieving your dream.
Therefore we do not need to think about everything we want, and to set goals to achieve them in the forms we think they should appear in, or to create an entire plan of action to achieve those things. All we have to do is to walk each step of the way and to act on whatever our heart is leading us to do at every present moment. When we take the step we are guided towards now, the next step will open up without us needing to figure it out beforehand. Life is much more exciting and liberating in this manner.
The same principle applies in manifesting your desires. You don’t have to force yourself to set specific intentions as you simply open yourself to being guided as to what to intend along the way. You will not have to work on visualizing anything but you will be naturally inspired to visualize the very things that your heart is drawn towards seeing happen. You don’t have to do any work at all because all the work is being done through you as you allow yourself to be moved into expressing your heart in every moment.
All the methods of mental power and physical techniques of doing things that you learn are not meant for you to try applying in getting what you want. They are actually meant for you to learn how to do better what you are already naturally doing. When you become conscious of the mechanics and explanations of how things work, you are able to refine and sharpen everything that you do to become more effective and efficient in the energy you expend and also more optimal in the results that you are getting.
Most people do things in reverse that is why they find the process so hard, so uninspiring and so full of effort. All the ways of achieving success are only the means to an end. But it is the nature of the world to focus on the means once success is achieved, and to turn them into ways that everyone should follow in achieving the same things. It is because people want control and certainty. They don’t realize that true control and direction of everything does not occur on this plane of reality but on a higher one.
We have all been created with desires, talents and dreams that were placed within us for the fulfillment of our purpose. All we have to do is to allow God to unfold them through us in divine timing and divine order as we go through life expressing what we are drawn to express each step of the way. Our true and innermost choices were already made on a higher plane before we entered this world. All the pain and struggle we experience is because we are going against our true choices with different ones.
All these means is to let go of all control of everything, and to surrender wholly to God in directing and driving our lives, and to trust in him completely every step of the way. Have no agenda and no will of our own. Be a yielded vessel. Instead of making things happen, we let things happen through us. By not driving yourself but allowing yourself to be driven, you will gain your greatest fulfillment, happiness and peace. You will experience life at the highest level of reality creation where you are partnered with God.
