ask and it is given

“Right here, right Now. There is no other place I would rather be. Watching the world wake up from history.” Coincidentally this song by Jesus Jones came on the radio just after I seized a teaching moment with my children. I had their attention in the car on the way to the Rec Center pool for Family Night. We talked about the universal ‘law of attraction’, and the ‘power of Now’. How our thoughts attract things into our life. Everything we see had its genesis in thought, blueprint, spirit, imagination, vision, feeling. The universe says “yes” to our thoughts and does not know the difference between what we want and do not want. It only gives us what we pay attention to. There is no such thing as “no”. So we can focus on what we want instead of what we do not want. We can turn our negating thoughts into affirmations. Ex: Instead of saying “I do not.. want a red light” say “I want.. a green light.” I told them 17 seconds of pure thought connect us to another thought ‘like’ it. “Like attracts like.” 68 seconds of thought put us on the vibrational frequency of that which we think about. Yes, we share responsibility for the events in our lives. I would say humbly, we are not helpless victims. The little people are in charge. Ask and it is given. Look upon that which you desire, instead of focusing on what you dread. "The Lord sent fiery flying serpents among the them and after they were bitten he prepared a way among them that they might be healed; and all the labor which they had to perform what to 'look'; and becouse of the simpleness of the way, or the easiness of it, there were many who parished." 1Ne 17:41

Act a little less. Envision and ‘feel’ a little more (pray/ meditate/ breath). We will find ourselves where we put the most attention. Focus on your breath to connect to the sacred stillness of the present moment. Your power is Now. Prayer is the souls sincere ‘desire’. Lord teach me how to pray. We came here to co-create, experience the concept of opposites and develop 'desire' on the leading edge of expansion. I took the opportunity to tell them.. “I want you to know that you are doing exceptionally well. It is good that you are here.. on the leading edge of expansion. Nothing matters more than that you ‘feel’ good because that is what you will attract. Look in the mirror and Ask yourself “how good can I stand it today.”

"The Lord allowed fiery serpents among them and after they were bitten he prepared a way that they might be healed. And all the labor they had to perform was just to 'look' But because of the simpleness of the way, or the easiness of it they there were many who parished. 1 Ne 17:41Focus on what you want, not on what you do not want. Deal with reality, acknowledge the problem, and then present solutions. deal with the negative but don't dwell on it, complain and blame without offering a remedy. If I cannot talk with you about a problem get out of my way, get behind me. I do not want to dwell on it.The law of attraction or "learning of the Jews" is found in every culture and prophetic writing. It is not magic, it is science. And it is an awesome wonder. We are not helpless victims.

I think we give God to much credit or responsability.. then cast all the blame on him when something goes wrong. We could share responsibility with God, council 'with', and acknowledge a "'hand' in all things". An interdepedant relationship rather than codependant. We are not helpless. We can ask for his guidance and that he consecrate our 'own' initiative for the greater good. The scriptures tell us the stories of those who initiated solutions then tap into the universe telling God what they want to resolve the dilemma. Creating solutions and identifying want/desires putting them on the vibration frequency of that which they desired. Everything around us is vibration. The little people are in charge. All we have to do is 'look' affirmatively, from a place of abundance not scarity.. These are my notes to self.

I was alive and I waited for this. Right here, right Now, there is no other place I want to be, watching the world wake up from history. ~ A woman on the radio talks about revolution when it's already passed her by. But Bob Dylan didn't have this to sing about. You know it ‘feels’ good to be alive. I saw the decade in, when it seemed the world could change at the blink of an eye. And if anything then there's your sign of the times. ~ I was alive and I waited for this. Right here, right Now, there is no other place I want to be, watching the world wake up from history.

Yeah, I remember a lot of the things we went over from earlier talks. They do ring true: a positive way of asking for things will really make a difference, even as far as your outlook goes.

Yep, the law of attraction.
