What if you wanted something in life or wanted an experience in life and all you had to do was accept it? Could you believe that you could have anything you wanted?
We do not get what we want, but we do get what we can embody. Longing doesn’t work and hoping doesn’t work. If we are wondering why we do not have what we so want in our life, we need to work at our acceptance level. Acceptance equals deserving. One of my early mentors, Richard Morgan taught me, if we wonder why we can’t experience what we desire in our lives it is because we do not feel like we deserve it.
So, how do we work on our deserving factor? As Socrates said, “the unexamined life is not worth living.” I invite us to examine our life, our feelings about the past, the things that push our buttons. Within it all are the keys to why we might not feel we deserve the life of our dreams, our desires, our hopes.
I had to do a lot of forgiving. I had to erase some of the things that were said to me. I still have to remind myself how much I deserve the life I am living, because I still can feel obstacles in the way of my full expression sometimes. It’s like peeling away an onion. I always go deeper.
Really, we do not deserve the good because of the things that we do. We don’t accumulate points for or against us. God is not sitting there keeping a tally sheet and then doling out the gifts.
We deserve the good because of who we are. We come from a Power that is only love in its real essence. I is a giving Power. It creates from Itself as us, according to our belief. Our DNA is Love. Love just is. We do not have to do anything to get it.
So, I invite us all to ACCEPT the truth that we deserve the Good. When we receive that knowing, life flows. We meet the challenges with a different kind of energy. We look at everything differently – from a higher perspective. Life becomes a glorious adventure.
It all starts within. It always has and always will.
Love and Aloha,
