Mantra for Abundance

“The right things come to me in the right way at the right time.”

~ Truth

Where our attention goes, energy flows. For as refined as the algorithm Facebook uses to present information in our feed to get us to click on it, the Universe has the perfect algorithm for our attention to get us to engage with it, to direct us, to provide us with resources necessary for the fulfillment of all our desires and the highest aspirations for ourselves.

Don't Buy Something. Be Something.

The right things are the things we need, the resources, information, knowledge, wisdom, teachers, guidance, money, connections, channels, skills that we require for the next leg of the journey, the next challenge, the next obstacle to surmount, the next hurdle to jump, the next wall to scale, the next goal to fulfill.

Those things come to us in the right way, that is, they come over the transom in a manner in which we can recognize and receive them. They are sent in a method that is meant just for us, perfectly for us, intended just for us, in a manner only we can recognize as exactly and precisely right for us. We know it when we see it, hear it, taste it, touch it, smell it.

And finally, those things come to us in the right time, at precisely the moment we need them, Divinely-ordered, which is to say, just in time. For when else would we need something then exactly when we need it? Why carry around a tool we can’t use until we need to use it? Why be in possession of extraneous or superfluous things until we require their utility? The Universe knows what we need, when we need it and hands off its special delivery to us in the instant we need it most.

Believe it. Repeat it:

“The right things come to me in the right way at the right time.”

It’s a mantra of Divine timing. A Mantra for Abundance. A mantra for being present in the moment so that we can recognize when there’s a delivery with our name on it.

Otherwise, where is our attention? Is it on Facebook, where its algorithm is presenting us with news on which to focus our awareness? Is it on YouTube whose algorithm presents us with the next best video to stream to maintain our engagement?

Or is our attention in the moment, on our being, in awareness of where we are, what we’re thinking, how we’re feeling and what we’re doing RIGHT NOW so that we can receive the message, the information, the resources, the insight, the gift that the Universe delivers to us at the exactly the right time in the right way for its best and highest use and our best and highest purpose? Hopefully, the latter. 

And it’s the latter that enables you to climb the ladder.

And that ladder is the one the Universe urges you ascend to become your best self, the most aspirational version of who you are, of who you can become. Because, ultimately, while the content on Facebook, on YouTube, on the device you’re currently reading this on can provide entertaining engagement, the most effective and powerful algorithm in creation is the one that directed you to this post in the first place: Divine Timing, Cosmic Consciousness, Source Serendipity.

And it’s making you aware that to receive the abundance that is ever-flowing in your direction, you must be present to receive it. Present in the world in which you are a part. Present. Presently. Like being home for the FedEx guy.

You must be present to receive the present.

Anything that attunes you to that truth, that reinforces that tenet, that amplifies that axiom is an algorithm worth paying attention to. It’s the ONLY algorithm that matters. The algorithm of BEING. It’s an algorithm that isn’t trying to get you to do anything other than fulfill your greatest potential and live your most meaningful life.

The funny thing is this algorithm doesn’t cost you anything. Nor does it cost you anything to receive it. You don’t even need to take Visa or American Express. There are no transaction fees. It doesn’t sell your information, your demographics, your analytics. And you don’t pay a percentage.

But you do have to pay attention.

Hurting & Healing

We are in a perpetual state of repair and maintenance, of growth and recovery, of death and rebirth — that’s our cycle of life.
— Truth
Phoenix






 

 

Arising from flames or returning to ashes?

It’s a cycle. Never ending. We are in a constant state of wounding ourselves—emotionally, physically, spiritually—from one source or another and then healing ourselves. Again and again.

Hurting and healing. We are in a perpetual state of repair, of maintenance, of growth of recovery — that’s our cycle of life. From neglect to nurture. From unloved to love. From absent-minded to whole-hearted.

We are in a constant state of being born or dying. Of hurting and healing. Of ascension or decadence. Of creation or destruction.

We are never done. Until we are. And then we don’t need a body any longer. And so it goes until we expire. Until then we are refreshing that which spoils. Replenishing the shelves. Extending our virtual shelf life.

We are in a constant state of being born or dying. Of hurting and healing. Of ascension or decadence. Of creation or destruction. And so it is with the Universe.

Welcome. Jump on in. The bathwater’s luke. Soon to run cold. But it can—and will—be heating up again. Once we add some flames to the fire. Some coals to the blaze. Stoke the ashes from which the Phoenix has just arisen.

Be patient with this magical creature — with you, me, the Phoenix. Give it just a sec. It was ashes only moments ago. It’s just getting warmed up.

You Can't Go Wrong

Even when we feel we’ve gone wrong, made a mistake or taken a misstep, we haven’t. We’re living life the way it was intended. By being human. 
— Truth

You can't go wrong. What a nice thought. If only it were true...

But it is. You can't go wrong. No matter what. 

When options present themselves and you have the good fortune of something good or something better: You can't go wrong. 

It's like choosing the color for your new car: Hey, it's new car. You can't go wrong. 

It's like finding out if you're having a boy or girl: You can't go wrong. 

It's like picking between your favorite flavored of ice cream: You can't go wrong. 

Well, life is exactly like that. You can't go wrong. Or make a mistake. All you have are options.

"Mistakes" are to be learned from and create an opportunity to grow. To refine. To practice discernment.

Make No Mistake.jpg

"Good" choices are rewarded with good experiences. A reinforcement of what led you to make them. Of the practice of discernment. Of sound decision-making. Bravo. 

Even when we feel we've gone wrong, made a mistake or taken a misstep, we haven't. We're living life the way it was intended. By being human. 

The nature of human existence is a risk. That we ventured here as souls from Source energy was our willingness to take the trip. To buy the ticket for the earth-bound ride and ride the roller coaster. Even though it makes you gulp when you climb in and the safety harness swings down and secures you to the seat (you hope!). It gets the pulse going. It's a risk. Maybe you're gonna like it. Maybe not. Maybe you're gonna puke. Maybe not. Maybe you'll scream. And enjoy screaming. Maybe not. 

Whatever happens, happens. In any case, you can't go wrong. It's a no-lose proposition. Another new life experience. Now you know what riding this particular roller coaster is like. And you'll want to do it again. You'll want to try another one; faster, more loops, a bigger drop. Or maybe you'll find a completely different ride that's more your speed. Whatever the outcome, you learn, you grow, you had a brush with drama or fun or fright. And you made it. Moving on. 

You can't go wrong. 

There are no mistakes. Only decisions and outcomes and then better ones. Or worse ones. Doesn't matter. It all works out in the end. Nothing is forever. The nature of reality is impermanence. Just like the roller coaster ride is fleeting, so is life. If you don't like your current choice, pick something else. Change the ride. Buy a ticket for another thrill. Choose again. Choose a different amusement. Whatever you pick, you can't go wrong. 

What a relief.

The Human Condition?

Being human isn’t conditional. It’s not predicated on anything. There is no credit check. No application process. If you’re reading this, you’ve already qualified.
— Truth

Membership has its privileges.

Welcome to the club — you’re pre-approved.

What exactly is the "human condition?"

Being human isn’t a condition that can be ameliorated with a salve. It’s not a temporary state of being, at least while on this planet, anyway. It’s permanent.

And being human isn’t conditional. It’s not predicated on anything. There is no credit check. No application process. If you’re reading this, you've already qualified. Pre-conditions have been satisfied. You are human.

Welcome to the club — you’re pre-approved. Membership has its privileges. Being human is a state of being. It’s something to embrace, to celebrate and to come to terms with. You did ask to be here. You came into this time and place for a reason knowing full well what you were getting yourself into. Your soul knows why and what you are here to accomplish. And the way you can accomplish anything and everything, the true source expression of it all, is love.

So radiate love, be love, be in love. That’s human truth. It’s what makes us human beings. Not conditional humans. Being human is not a condition that needs to cured. It’s our regard for it, our perspective on it, that demands medical attention.

Best not to think of it as a condition. Like it’s something that you were diagnosed with and wonder how you contracted it and how you might cure it. It’s who we are. What we are. No salve will cure it. No balm will heal it, nor make it disappear or fade away or reverse its effects.

Solve your perspective, don’t salve your “condition.” You are human. I am human. Make the best of it: Fasten your seat belt and settle in for the ride of a lifetime.

Turtle Envy

Home—wherever you are—is being at peace, being content in your own skin... even if that skin’s a shell.
— Truth
Maui Sea Turtle

Like the enormous sea turtle I encountered on a Maui beach — it was 300 pounds at least! — who is at home in its shell wherever it happens to venture, home is wherever you are, being at peace, being content in your skin, even if that means feeling like a foreigner for a spell.

Because feeling at home is embracing and accepting however you are at the moment. Whatever is real for you right now. Accepting a true state of present awareness is your ultimate connection to home.

Remind yourself that feeling foreign in your home town means you had been feeling at home in a foreign town!
Yours truly, getting grounded in Maui

Yours truly, getting grounded in Maui

Sometimes one’s own home town can feel like foreign territory when returning from a new place, a new situation, a new environment. Coming “home” from some faraway corner of the globe or rarefied experience can make your home town feel out of place — or you out of place in it. Remind yourself that feeling foreign in your home town means you had been feeling at home in a foreign town!

Human beings are highly adaptable. Feeling foreign is a temporary state before we find our place, connect with our tribe and settle into the comfort of our own being. Not feeling at home means you did feel at home somewhere.

Find home again by reminding yourself that, like the sea turtle, you carry home with you wherever you go and home is somewhere you can be wherever you are.

Like the turtle, we can allow the awareness of "home" to be with us wherever we tread. And re-create the feelings we define as home whenever we want.

At least, until we can return to our most favorite, most familiar, perfectly-tailored shell.

Which we realize was with us all along.

Improve-isation

This isn't about "make it or break it," "use it or lose it," "love it or leave it." It's about improvising improvements.

WHEN SHIT GOES WRONG, like something falling through or going to pot or breaking or getting totaled, rolling with it often leads to an improvement of circumstances; the replacement of the old with something new and better (not just different), something that shows a greater refinement of choices in one's life. A new opportunity for growth and evolution, for transcendence and promotion. 

Its not just about going with the flow, it's not just about improvisation; it's improve-isation: the act of improving your life. Making the upgrade that often comes to us after a period of things falling away, breaking or in the wake of crushing disappointments: a better home, a newer car, a more loving partner, a more embracing community, a healthier body, a more rewarding job, a more purposeful life, a brighter future.

This isn't about "make it or break it," "use it or lose it," "love it or leave it." It's about improvising improvements.

It's the tap dance of IMPROVE-isation.
