I often receive messages from people telling me what "actions" they have taken to "try" to achieve their objectives, or what they need to "do" to realise some objective.
The first thing I would like to mention is that "try" does not exist - we either "do" or "do not do" something - "try" will almost always guarantee failure because your Mindset is not one of Success.
That said - should you be "doing" anything at all in order to achieve your objectives?
The answer is it depends on the motivation behind it. "Doing" something with the objective of "pushing the physical world around"hoping to achieve "something" will often result in failure.
However - inspired action, in other words right action in response to inspiration, intuition, or "gut feelings" from the Solar Plexus is always something we should do without hesitation.
The apparent paradox is non-action leads to "correct action" or the direct realisation of whatever you truly need as opposed to what you "think you need".
This important truth is taught extensively by the ancient knowledge of the ages and even many religions:
"Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink; nor yet for your body, what ye shall put on. Is not the life more than food, and the body than raiment? Look at the birds. They don't plant, harvest, or gather the harvest into barns. Yet, your heavenly Father feeds them. Aren't you worth more than they? Which of you by taking thought can add one cubit unto his stature? And why take ye thought for raiment? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they toil not, neither do they spin: And yet I say unto you, That even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. Wherefore, if God so clothe the grass of the field, which to day is, and to morrow is cast into the oven, shall he not much more clothe you, O ye of little faith? Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed? (For after all these things do the Gentiles seek:) for your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things. But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you. --Matthew 6:25-33
These teachings by the Master are incredibly powerful if only they are interpreted correctly.
What Jesus is saying quite simply is that only by "non-action" and "non-thought" can "all these things be added unto you".
Of course that does not mean we must not "think" in absolute terms, but only that we should not "think" about "how" to achieve our objections - all action should be inspired action.
I will analyse this passage and discuss this important subject in a future newsletter, but I will conclude with this:
"In the practice of the Way every day something is dropped. Less and less do you need to force things until you finally arrive at non-action. When nothing is done nothing is left undone". -- Lao-Tsu
Which confirms the words of Jesus when he rhetorically asks:
"Which of you by taking thought can add one cubit unto his stature?
The Principle of Supply can once again be summarised by the words of Jesus when he says:
"But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you".
What this truly means is to realise God within, thereby becoming a more open channel of expression for God, The Source, and everything you need on Earth, just as with the animals, birds and plants will be provided in abundance.
Otherwise all "ye of little Faith" will continue to struggle by "thinking" and "doing" in the hope of achieving something.
I often receive messages from people in desperate need of help when it seems to them their whole life has crashed around them, and wanting to know how to use The Law of Attraction to fix things.
While The law of Attraction can be used, it will not work effectively with people in such an emotional and negative thinking state. So my advice initially is to do nothing and "try" nothing. Completely submit to the Universe, God, our Prime Creator, and with total sincerity ask or pray that you may be shown the way forward.
I assure you the way forward will always be revealed - all anyone has to do is allow it.
