Just the other day I was thinking of all the blessings that have come into my life and of all the other things, places and events I still want to manifest into my life. When we talk about manifestation, most of us think about a better car, home, or partner. But when you're able to get in touch with the desires of your Soul, your true Self, they will bring you closer to your spiritual aspirations of greater love, joy, inspiration, and spiritual freedom.
Your Soul is always trying to communicate with you, albeit in very subtle ways. It wants to experience all your human emotions and help guide you to becoming your highest divine Self. But how about all those better cars, homes, and partners. Just because we desire those things in our lives, does that make those manifestations any less worthy of our attention? Many religions would have us believe that we can only be close to God when we have no possessions what so ever. So what gives?
Here's my take on it. Our highest true self, our Soul, is God. Therefore we are a piece of the divine as well. We are a piece of God. In fact we are God. There's no other way to say it. We must be like what we came from, right? There is only one. All races, creeds, colours, earthly life forms, alien life forms - everything in all the Universes is all, "Us." When we kill, we kill ourselves. When we love, we love ourselves.
So how could it be so terribly wrong to desire earthly pleasures while here on this planet? It's not! The secret is to desire that which gives you joy, not happiness, but joy. Happiness is fleeting, and comes and goes depending on our outlook to what is currently happening to us. Joy, on the other hand, comes from the Soul. If that better car gives you joy while driving it and in ownership of it, go for it.
As long as you don't harm anyone else or become judgmental of others in the process (remember, we're all one, right), then what stirs your Soul, and allows the joy already inside you to come forth, in my opinion, is a good thing. Remembering of course that all earthly manifestations are only temporary and we will leave them all behind soon enough. We came into this world with "no-things" and we will leave the same way.
While all those earthly possessions we manifest while here may serve us, remember that when we get closer to our divine selves, our Soul, they will start to mean less and less. You'll discover that perhaps that better car, home, or partner really isn't necessary after all. You are God remember, and there's so much more to experience once we leave this world and return home.
You've been listening to the Soul Mechanic, and it's been my absolute pleasure to serve you. Sending you Love, Happiness, and Abundance. Now, and always.
Bye for now!
