“We need not always be effective, but only transparent and vulnerable. Then we are instruments, no matter what we do.” ~ richard rohr
I have been gandering at this transition from grieving to gratitud-ing I am making. This is what I have come up with so far.
With no anecdote here that will ground this esoteric discussion, I hope you will stick with me as I dissect why things are seeming to be going my way more and more these days – even when “bad” things happen.
Even though I am unaware of where I am going, what purpose I serve or how I will make my way in this world, I am becoming aware of the process by which my best life can be unfolded.
Acceptance of “what is”, i. e. scraping illusion for the subtler substance of things is becoming my go to response in any situation. From here I find myself Requesting what I would like to happen within the circumstance at hand. Then things seem to pan out in my favor –usually in a way I could not have foreseen.
Turns out doing things in this order suits both me and the universe. As I am accepting of what is, my request for change comes from a meatier less grasping place. It rolls with the current rather than crashes into it! This way I am in the flow, flowing forward toward my Destiny…which is still TBD.
And through it all I am finding being transparent and vulnerable allows things to move through me – for my own benefit – and for the benefit of others I hope. I am no longer getting stuck in emotional angst of wishing this “had never happened” or that “is not how it is supposed to be.”
The more I do it the easier it is to be transparent and vulnerable. I recognize these are the vehicles that give juice to things; they allow connections to be made and soulful growth to occur. Plus I am sure whatever I am going through is not singular in nature. I am, as you are, human.
That’s where the ‘instrument’ part of Richard Rohr’s quote comes in. I can not think of anything more satisfying than being myself, doing what I love and having those two things serve others.
That is as far as my plan goes these days. Got no details. Got no “to do” list. Got no worries that if I follow this process more will be revealed elegantly and with ease.
So here are the steps again cuz people like numbering things…
1) Complete acceptance of what is
2) Request anything you like from a place of acceptance
3) Watch as your life favorably unfolds.
Manifesting in this way is very new to me so I am open to any tweaking of the above process! But so far so good…
How do you make manifest the things you desire?
