This one I definitely needed to hear to help put my troubled heart and mind finally at ease and stop blaming myself for something that is not my fault nor my problem. Long story short, I had a “friend” who lost their job ask me for help (money) and they said that if I was not able to help they understood. Well, with all that is going on in my financial life (and I explained this to them) I was not able to help. Some time passed and I wrote to ask if everything was okay, no response. Finally saw them online yesterday afternoon and asked how everything was going and that I was a concerned. They pretty much told me off saying why was I worried about them when I refused to help them and basically accused me a being a bad person and to not ever talk to them again. Huh? What? So…not able to help = refused to help which = not allowed to have concern. Wow, so much for “understanding not being able to help”. But as much as tried to push this aside it bothered me but I know it just comes down to trying to behave in a way that makes someone else feel good when THIS IS NOT RESPONSOBILITY! They are responsible for their own happiness and they choose to be angry and bitter towards everyone who “refused” to help them then that is on them and not me. And so hearing this finally helped clear up that last bit of unfounded guilt I was feeling. So I am happy that I was drawn to this much needed to hear clip.
By My Attention to Things, I Am Making Choices… What people do not understand is that you do not choose something by looking at it and shouting “Yes, I would like some of that!” You make your choices by your attention to things. In this Universe that is based on attraction, when you look at an unwanted thing, your attention to it causes an activation of the Vibration within you, and then the Law of Attraction brings more like it into your experience.
— Abraham Excerpted from the book, “The Vortex, Where the Law of Attraction Assembles All Cooperative Relationships ”
Again…I must take my attention OFF the UNWANTED! But the irony is that if I am not “worrying” (giving attention) about the “unwanted” then it will not get solved/fixed when it is my attention to it (worry) that keeps the unwanted active in my life! And during those moments when I am able to turn my attention away from the unwanted, “they” seem to find a way to bring my attention back to “them”! But I must and need to continue to work at ceasing my attention to the “unwated/undesired” and find ways to get and keep my thoughts and feelings only on that I desire to be happy….and I know I have to Be Happy even in the absence of those things to make me happy!
“Do you have to change your vibration on a particular subject in order to let it in?” No, you don’t. You could pet your pet and let it in. You could sit with your feet dangling in the bay, and let it in. If it is a subject that you often think of in an attitude of resistance, it is really worthwhile reaching for some thoughts that feel better. You could launch an intention and never think about it again, and the Universe would yield it to you. You don’t have to clean up your vibration relative to anything, if you can just not think about it any more. That’s why we teach meditation. It’s easier to teach you to have no thought than to have pure positive thought. When you quiet your mind you stop thought; when you stop thought you stop resistance; when you stop resistance—then you are in a state of allowing.

If only quieting the negative thoughts in the mind were as easy as reading the above words. Esepcially during these lonely days, which being alone one would think that would be even an easier task at quieting the mind….but ironically it is not! The (my) challenge is NOT gving attention to what is absent in my life which seem to come onto the spiritual radar more when alone…and I allow these “distracting” thoughts to occupy my time and mind and energy instead of doing the “Work” needed that will “fix” all that is wrong in my life by turning away from the phycical lack and focus on the “”thoughts and feelings” of the having those things that would give me the “thoughts and feelings”.
Every single person on the planet and every single Consciousness in the Universe has the same experience of being here and having a desire to be there. In other words, it is the promise of this eternal Universe. You’re always, always, always going to be on your way to something more – always. And when you relax and accept that, and stop beating up on yourself for not being someplace that you’re not, and instead, start embracing where you are while you keep your eye on where you’re going – now life becomes really, really, really fun.

Just when you think life / things can’t get any busier….but then it is probably me creating this more busy time by thinking I have to work more and harder to make money and I am getting more and harder work BUT not getting more money!
But on to yesterday’s message. I am and have been beating myself up for not already being where I want to be. Especially during this time of year which has “markers” (things that always have to be done or are done this same time every year) and every year I “say” that next year will be different, that I won’t have “this” to deal with or I will have “that” this time next year. Then that year passes and I am STILL having to deal with “this” and STILL don’t have that and thus the beating myself up commences again!
It amazes me how quickly that year goes by and how easy it is to fall bacl into the “garbage loop” and not realize that I am back in the Matrix again! But now I can “feel” how weary I am getting dealing with “this” and not having “that” and all the other “challenges” that seem like they will never go away or ever get resolved…..but I know it is up to me to break the loop and slow the momentum and reverse it in the desired direction…just ain’t been able to put the mental brakes on the negative thinking and corresponding emotions….something else I beat myself up on too!
From The Secret Daily Teachings
It is important to remember that it is your thoughts and feelings together that create with the law of attraction, and you cannot separate them. Also remember that it’s your feelings that are summing up your overall frequency and telling you what you are creating in this moment.
So how are you feeling right now? Could you feel better? Well then, do what it takes right now to feel better.
When you are feeling drained & exhausted from stress working long hours & challenges from undesired circumstances/situations, little & restless sleep, finding “good feelings” & thoughts is proving to be very challenging & difficult BUT something I know that must be done to reverse the momentum built up down the current (undesired) path.
Whatever you’re thinking about is literally like planning a future event. When you’re worrying, you are planning. When you’re appreciating you are planning…What are you planning?
Excerpted from the workshop in Silver Spring, MD on Saturday, April 19th, 1997 # 440
Yes! What am I planning? I need to be “planning on feeling good” so that I have good things to plan and feel good about!
When you serve the One, you serve a living idea in Universal Mind. Because it is a living idea, it is self-energized and does not require energy from outside sources in order to evolve. This is an important concept.
I have served many things in my life: I have built and developed businesses to generate income, I have served individual people to get love or acceptance, and I have served my own personal desires to receive material goods. In every circumstance where my intention was other than serving the One, or serving God, or Life, after some periods of time I found myself bored, dissatisfied, tired, and worn out. After I entered this teaching, I discovered why—each and every one of these ventures required energy from an outside source in order for it to flourish. That outside source, more times than not, was me. Isn’t it interesting that Dr. Holmes refers to illness as something that is not an entity and therefore requires energy from the individual in order to exist? Isn’t it interesting that hospitals beds are filled with patients who are generally worn out and tired? One might wonder where their energy has gone. It has gone to feed the illness. And so it is in every other aspect of life. When we serve something that is not the One, it requires our energy in order for it to thrive.
I have learned to test whether an idea is “living” or not. After it is up and running for awhile, I put it aside and leave it alone. After a period, I return to it; if it is still there and thriving, I recognize that its existence is not dependent upon me, and therefore it is being fed by something greater. I have done this with businesses, relationships, jobs, investments, and yes, health. It is an exercise that I use in order to wake up. A living idea in the Mind of God always inspires, motivates, and energizes me. A living idea in the mind of Kenn often does the same, but is never sustainable without me feeding it. It isn’t that one is right and one is wrong—it’s simply that one is sustainable and one is limited. This is why I serve the One. It makes sense, and it pays off.

Something to think about as we start another week….
