The secret is never what you think it is, it’s always something much simpler. The knowing of the secret allows you to live your life in a radically dynamic way. What is the secret to living a fulfilling and happy life? WORK WITH WHAT YOU’VE GOT. That’s it. That’s the answer. When you work with what is already present in your life, you very quickly move into a position of gratitude.
Take your relationships. This includes everyone you know. Each of these people, from those you love to the person in your local shop, is in your life on purpose. They are there for a reason. And the reason they are there is to to teach you how to love.
So employing the principle of working with what you’ve got, you make a concerted effort with each of these connections. Every time one of these people crosses your path, you make yourself completely there for them. You bring presence to every interaction. You make eye contact. You listen to them, really listen with every fibre of your being. You meet them naked without a mask. This means that you don’t play a role of customer, neighbour, friend, employee, brother or wife. You come as yourself. Everyone you interact with gets YOU, 100% and undiluted.
Perhaps you are alone and want nothing more than a life partner. Instead of craving for a mystical prince or princess, and most likely bemoaning the fact that everyone else seems to be hooked up apart from you, you don’t do that. Instead, you enjoy all the people you DO know. You find ways to make people smile, you explore ways to make the lonely feel cherished, the ignored feel noticed, the sad feel happy. You look forward to connecting with everyone that crosses your path.
Can you imagine the glow, the light and the warmth that will radiate from your open heart, when you allow yourself to be used as a channel for love in this way? You become a very special person in your environment. You become a magnet as people are drawn to you. And all those gifts you’ve bestowed on others, these very same gifts are bestowed on you! People notice you, the real you. People bask in your smiles. They feel happy when they see you. You become a person that lights up rooms. This type of energy is irresistible to others. And how long do you think a person like this will remain alone and unattached?
Always work with what you’ve got. Consider the riches you already possess. They are many. Until you appreciate and fully care for all the elements that are in your life, why should life deliver you more? MORE relates to all areas of your life. It applies to your career, wealth, health, EVERYTHING. A meaningful life is really about OPTIMISING what you already have.
And remember, life doesn’t owe you anything. To be fulfilled is to be of service to others and life itself. If you can shift your gaze, the way you interpret life, and learn to look deeply into the potential that is within your existing life situation, you’ll discover there are infinite possibilities for expansion. Be creative with your beautiful life. Express positivity, even during periods of adversity, especially then. Life is multidimensional. Every detail of life, no matter how seemingly insignificant, is rich with opportunity for you to expand your experience as a human being.
As a creator being, you have come here to create. Choose consciously to create news avenues to express joyfully. Banish the mundane from your life and make extraordinary choices. Feel into your originality and learn to value it as the invaluable resource that it is. You are one aspect of the Infinite Consciousness – the One. Each fragment of the One is equally imbued with blessings and gifts. These gifts may be measured by the world of illusion as being lesser or greater than others gifts, but this is false. All gifts are of equal merit and of equal worth. Remember that and treasure the gifts in your keeping.
With love and light,
