Day 9 APPRECIATION
Our current society constantly teaches us to “want more”, “need more”, “be more”, “do more” etc…. we are constantly influenced to perceive what is missing to motivate us to buy more, work more, pay more taxes and be “good little consumption sheep”. Very rarely do we stop to think about all that we DO have… starting with the gift of life.
The ego lives and feeds on a LACK OF Appreciation and Self Love… an emptiness within the self that needs to be filled rather than recognized and healed with awareness of Self Love.
When we give energy to another to RECEIVE for ourselves (as banks do, and often parents or “lovers”…), and the other does not “repay” what we expected to receive, we may feel cheated, “used” , or “due”.
Instead, such situations in our lives emerge as lessons to teach us that giving must be done from the heart. ONLY for the GIVING, and not for the expected return.
This is the ego trap that creates the illusion; if I get this, have, then I’m good. But the ego is never satisfied. And the emptiness within you can only be healed by the awakening of the wholeness of you: the dark and the light. By taking full responsibility for yourself to become the healthy person/soul you came here for and by overcoming the trap of the ego.
“When we give what we want to give, for the joy of giving, we don’t feel indebted”
It doesn’t matter what your neighbor owns. Comparing ourselves to see how we “measure” constantly distracts us from seeing and using the blessings that are our own. If we can work on the ability to APPRECIATE even the smallest gifts, blessings, and gestures, we will begin to create a life that is at least “half full, not half empty.”
In terms of universal physics, what you focus on expands, and what you resist persists, and what you do not give the energy of appreciation to will eventually de-manifest from your experience. When you approach the world through the chosen filter of true GIVING, you are “an electrical transmitter” and you are sending energy to the word around you. When you release electrical energy in this way, you personally become “more magnetic” because the emission of energy creates magnetic vortices.
The “magnetized” points then attract more universal energy, with a higher frequency and quality than the energy void. Through the “giving” a high source has been created that is again filled with light. It’s the law.
When you approach life with the “get” attitude, this natural physical process is reversed; the more you try to “pull” energy from the outside world, the more your energy gets “stuck”.
Giving, even in the simplest form of appreciation, keeps the natural flow of energy moving. So whatever you hand out, it will come back to you amplified. However, this also works in reverse; give goodness, you will get more goodness in return. Give out a bad attitude, ego-arrogance and “garbage”, and more of this will come your way.
Appreciate what you have, LOVE it, find perspectives through which its joy can be known, and know that through genuine appreciation, you yourself release the powers to manifest more of what you desire and less of the illusion of lack. The ‘Universe Owes Me’ mind trip is one of the most powerful self-sabotage games in the world… trade it in for consistent appreciation and your world will gradually expand to contain the reality of the things you most desire.
If you feel attacked by the world and resentful that your desires go unfulfilled, then you owe yourself SOMETHING! … A better understanding of the nature of creation and a better use of your personal power within the game of life creation.
SAY THANK YOU to the GOD FORCE more often… to help yourself remember the things to appreciate, and many more of that kind will come your way.
And so it is
I send you love
