I surrender my idea of free will to the divine plan.
I allow myself to be free, to be loving, to be love.
I have a feeling that the subconscious mind has been working behind the scenes and something is manifesting out of it, which end result I am not aware of yet. All I can see is that the Universe creates certain circumstances and attracts certain people in my life and it feels like magic unfolding itself in front om my eyes.
It is also a hard work, as if I have levelled up to another level and here I have to combine the spiritual power together with the routines and perseverence in the physical world. What I am talking about is that I have a feeling of different doors opening without me doing anything and I have to work with myself in order to stay in myself and not lose focus. Because I need to stay grounded in me in the physical world and not just fly away with the dreams into the la-la-land. I find Haanel’s lesson of week 10 very inspirational. I love the picture he presents of Nature being lush and abundant, there is life everywhere and that is so true! I have just not thought of it before, I have heard that there is abundance everywhere as long as you are on that vibe, but this is such a good example. Nature is overflowing with love and that is how I want to feel – it feels like wow, what a syncronicity and a great connection on a certain level in me. He writes:
“Abundance is a natural law of the Universe. The evidence of this law is conclusive; we see it on every hand. Everywhere Nature is lavish, wasteful, extravagant. Nowhere is economy observed in any created thing. Profusion is manifested in everything. The millions and millions of trees and flowers and plants and animals and the vast scheme of reproduction where the process of creating and recreating is forever going on, all indicates a lavishness with which Nature has made provision for man. That there is an abundance for everyone is evident, but that many fail to participate in this abundance is also evident; they have not yet come into a realization of the Universality of all substance, and that mind is the active principle whereby we are related to the things we desire.
I find it very interesting that by the observation below he says the same thing as the Toltec sorcerers of Mexico described in Carlos Castaneda books:
“All wealth is the offspring of power; possessions are of value only as they confer power. Events are significant only as they affect power; all things represent certain forms and degrees of power”.
As don Juan, the magnificent sorcerer of the Toltec world explained once for Carlos that power is everywhere and in order to get it one must become a hunter and then a warrior. What he meant was that in order to gain personal power one must be impeccable, it includes being a master of one’s thoughts and emotions and even things that you do, people you meet and places you visit. I remember Carlos went to a party and drank tequila with some people he didn’t know which resulted in a drunken argument. Don Juan explained the whole event as meaningless and even bad for Carlos, since he went there without having an idea why and he just lost his energy in something meaningless like that instead of focusing on gathering power by listening to his intuition of where to go. And that’s that – when you start being an impeccable warrior (being a master of one’s thoughts, mastering vizualisation, quieting inner dialogue etc) then you get in tune with yourself and the Universe will give you more and more hunches on where to go and what to do, which can seem like coincident….but they truly aren’t. And that is what I call magic and that is what is happening to me – and as I mentioned earlier I have no idea on where they will lead me. Yes, I have my goals, my dreams and I see that what is happening is in accordance to what I am wishing for to happen…..and it is also a challenge for me to continue being impeccable at the same time as magic is unfolding itself….let me give you an example. Imagine you are on a diet and you can’t eat chocolate, in the beginning it is hard, since you are addicted but then you haven’t eaten it for a couple of weeks or months and it’s fine, you are ok with that, you have found your rhythm without it. And then!! when you are totally cool with not having chocolate, a piece of chocolate knocks on your shoulder and says “here I am, would you like to taste me?” What do you do? Well..since you are totally cool with not having it, then you think that it’s cool to taste a little. No harm in that. But then you get a lot of chocolate knocking on your shoulder and asking to be tasted…and then it takes an impeccable warrior to taste only as much as it tastes good and take only what is needed….so basically not eating all of it, melting it and smearing it all over your body in it , then rolling around in it and so on…. you get the idea! So being impeccable is one thing and being impeccable and enjoy life and having a balance is another. Especially if you are a very passionate person like me! I want to taste everything, smell everything and live fully!
According to Haanel “if the soul of the Universe as we know it is the Universal Spirit, then the Universe is simply the condition which the Universal Spirit has made for itself. We are simply individualized spirit and are creating the conditions for our growth in exactly the same way.”
So I ask for focus this week, grounding and center in myself.
While being on a magnificent journey watching magic unfolding itself in front of my eyes.
I surrender my idea of free will to the divine plan.
