It is a strange thing, this Co-Creating... The part I struggle with the most is living in the Moment. We are working on creating what we desire to come into our lives, yet we are really all about the NOW. All we have IS NOW.
Anyone who hasn't read Eckhart Tolle's books, should GET THEM NOW. Do not wait another day. I am always reading one of them. I gave one to my Father for Christmas, he says it is changing his life. I find such joy in the notion that we are perfect right where we are, in this perfect moment. That all is as it should be, because "it is." We are. We are who we are, now.
It seems that on the surface this concept is in a conflict with the LOA, When we set intentions we are focusing on what we WANT, what there is a LACK of, rather than being all Zen and "In the moment." But in that is a harmonious dance, I believe. That is where the magic of the LOA really is. When we find the bliss in the now, then we will attract more of the same! When we are grateful for what we have now, we will have more to be grateful for. When we are at peace now, we will have continuting peace. When we are joyful about our circumstances now, that will be our constant vibration. So GETTING, is all about HAVING.
Getting stuff, jobs, relationships, and parking spots is like the icing on the cake. The cake is our attitude. The cake is where we are now. The cake is the substance. We can't live off of the icing (okay, the cake isn't so healthy either, but you know what I mean). Icing is nice, but not always even necessary!
So stopping to smell the flowers, to notice that we have something lovely in our lives already is very important in this journey we call life. If we can't appreciate WHAT IS, then we won't appreciate what we get later. End of.
I have realized today that I've been RESISTING what is. I don't like my brother and mom having this "them and us" thing going on. I don't like being 45 minutes away from my Grandmother who needs me right now. I don't like LOADS of things about my situation. So I am resisting those things. And let's all say it together now: "What you resist, persists!"
So today I am looking to drop the resistance, to BE WITH the way things are. I can still ASK the Universe for "This or That, or Something Better." I can and will keep on Co-Creating! I am just going to savor the moments I have got, bless myself today, be with what IS. That is what has been missing.
