Living Life Powered By My Own Intention, Knowing the True Essence of Security

Since my departure from the traditional "Corporate Life" almost 8 months ago at the young age of 42, I have been on a free-bird journey to "find my bliss". In that time and my travels, I have continually been confronted with and struck by the fact that, although there is much talk about and studying of "the power of intentions", it appears to me as though many people aren't yet really "living it". "It" being their own life, dreams or reality in happiness and in well being.

The lights of their proverbial stage remain unlit and the seats of their theaters empty.

Living life "on purpose" and in deliberate creation is, magical, mysterious, and some would say outright miraculous. I am in awe - and giggles - daily as I witness one "coincidence" after another play out for my personal delight and bliss. I have a new term for "coincidence", it's now replaced with "Universal Wink", and when one happens I know it!

William Shakespeare so eloquently stated in his masterful and deliberate creation "As You Like it",

"All the world's a stage,

And all the men and women merely players:

They have their exits and their entrances;

And one man in his time plays many parts,"

In my reality, everyone is a player on my stage and a mirror for my self-learning pleasure, my theatre is sold out consistently!

It was only a few short years ago - between 4 and 5 - that I was introduced to an old and powerful little book. At the time, I considered the author an odd looking man with an even odder name - Wallace D. Wattles. The title of the book is "The Science of Getting Rich" and "Wally" - as we have affectionately come to call him - was inspired to share his "pragmatical and practical manual" almost a century ago in the year 1910. Unlike other books I had read prior to it; "The Magic of Thinking Big" by David Schwartz, "Acres of Diamonds" by Russell H. Conwell, or the all-time classic "Think and Grow Rich" by Napoleon Hill, this book provided me with a new perspective and new tools to experiment with. I was hooked on both the preface and the first paragraph of the first chapter as Wattles stated,

"The monistic theory of the universe the theory that One is All,

and that All is One; That one Substance manifests itself as the

seeming many elements of the material world..."

~ Preface

"WHATEVER may be said in praise of poverty,

the fact remains that it is not possible to live a really

complete or successful life unless one is rich.

No man can rise to his greatest possible height in

talent or soul development unless he has plenty of money;

for to unfold the soul and to develop talent he must have

many things to use, and he cannot have these things unless

he has money to buy them with."

~ Chapter 1

It seemed to me that "everything old was new again". The words came at me from a long ago past in crisp clarity, and clarity I have come to experience, is the essence of power.

Wally and my "playing with his principles" went on to prove to me, beyond a shadow of my own doubts, that there is much more to earning money than exchanging my time and talents for it, and that the traditional exchange is much more difficult than the "much more" that was required to amass personal wealth and well being. It was also the first time I had realized that there really are no coincidences in my world, and that everything that seemed like a coincidence was there on purpose and deliberately for my own growth, use or entertainment.

The Science of Getting Rich, as with many others, summarizes and continually re-iterates a mantra that I felt true in every cell of my Being. Wattles speaks of "The Certain Way", a certain way of being, doing and thinking that sounded loudly familiar and gave me the familiar goosebumps of recognition that I was "onto something". It spoke to me of the inherent knowing of my own integrity and excellence that has been my faithful comfort in times of uncertainty and indecision all my life.

"There is a thinking stuff from which all things are made,

and which, in its original state, permeates, penetrates,

and fills the interspaces of the universe.

A thought, in this substance,

Produces the thing that is imaged by the thought.

Man can form things in his thought, and, by impressing

his thought upon formless substance, can cause the thing

he thinks about to be created.

In order to do this, man must pass from the competitive

to the creative mind; he must form a clear mental picture

of the things he wants, and do, with faith and purpose,

all that can be done each day, doing each separate

thing in an efficient manner."

Simply taking the above statements "on faith" and going through my days in "The Certain Way" opened up a whole new set of options for "deliberately creating" the future that I desired to experience. As my days unfolded with new evidence that I was actually affecting the events around me, I was struck with a realization and deeper understanding of an even older story that has always had me in a childlike state of awe and wonder.

That story is the story of our own creation as told in the book of Genesis - "The Beginning". It was upon this realization and after many years of having first read it that I finally "felt" I understood how it was possible to create a whole universe single-handedly!

The words in verses 26 & 27 (NIV) was now a huge "aha"!

"Then God said, "Let us make man in our image, in our likeness,

and let them rule over the fish of the sea and the birds of the

air, over the livestock, over all the earth, and over all the

creatures that move along the ground."

"So God created man in his own image,

in the image of God he created him;

male and female he created them."

It now made total sense to me that if God created us in his/our image that we should have the ability to create as [he/they] did!

Since that time, I have been blessed with the appearance and teachings of many mentors, coaches and masters that confirm my own collosal "aha". As I said at the beginning of this article:

"I have continually been confronted with and struck by the fact

that, although there is much talk about and studying of

"the power of intentions", it appears to me as though many

people aren't yet really "living it"."

Like a scientist with a whiff of profound discovery, I began to ask myself some new questions:

What if we do have the ability to create as God did? How has that affected what and where I am now?

What if we are all here as a single entity and at the same time still connected to and operating out of that "formless stuff"? Which brings me to another verse from Genesis - Verse 2:

"Now the earth was formless and empty,

darkness was over the surface of the deep,

and the Spirit of God was hovering over the waters."

And, blasphemous though it may sound to many, even to myself the first time I asked it, the most important question of all -

What if I AM God?

As I asked the question and tried to imagine the "consequences" of that being true I felt a lightness and "certainty" envelope me. For the first time in my life I felt the true essence of "secure". It also caused me to realize that not everyone would feel the same sense of comfort and security in that "truth".

It smacked of huge "responsibility". If everyone is God and creating their own reality, some may not be too "proud" about what they have created for themselves so far. Taking responsibility for the present circumstances of their world might be painful at best. I have somehow inherently operated from these "new" rules all my life, using this "force" on purpose has allowed me to see how I "create" and I am "at peace with where I'm at". Is it not easier for many to shift the responsibility to a greater entity or to someone else if things are not exactly as they want them?

It is truly humbling to look at a "mess" and take responsibility for creating it, to say, "this I have done - and it is good".

Well, it is "all good". Can I refer to Genesis again? Notice that at the end of each verse, after each of his creations it says:

"And God saw that it was good."

There's a new teacher on the planet today. An entity that has come to us and interacts with us from the "formless stuff". I have enjoyed and delighted in the "Teachings of Abraham" for almost 3 years now. They/it are here to teach us to "feel good" no matter what, to ignore the apparent "reality" of our circumstances and go for that better feeling place. Abraham-Hicks is being hailed as the greatest teacher of our time, and comes at a time we need them most.

It is our "good" feelings that are the raw material in creating that which we desire in our lives. Knowing with clarity what we truly want is the tricky part, and the most important. What do you want when everything's possible? Like the art of praying and praising taught to me in Sunday school so many years ago, setting my intentions and remaining in a state of certainty and allowing has me in total bliss from moment to moment every day!

Here's a quote by one of my favorite human beings, Albert Einstein:

"We can't solve problems by using the same

kind of thinking we used when we created them."

Keeping in mind that everything is always good, and if you perceive you have a problem - which is just a "don't want", step out of your traditional way of thinking and tap into something a little different than you're used to. I promise you that eventually it'll all come back around to that which you already know.

My question to you is, do you even know what it feels like to feel good let alone experience total bliss?

Sounds like an obvious question and I've met many that don't - yet.

Like God did in the beginning, in his image we launch our rockets of desire and go about creating that which pleases us most. Knowing we are in a place of complete control at all times and having faith in the simplicity, of a universal law that is unfailing in it's "certainty" creates a huge sense of security - everything is always perfect in its timing and it is always "good".

So ask yourself - regardless of your prior programming,

"What if I am God?"

How different would your world look in a few short days, weeks or months from Now?

And, no matter what you see then, simply decide, "it's all good", because feeling good is ALWAYS a choice.
