Either one, you have to accept that both are an option! A choice. But in order to get to that radical awareness of having the power to choose, there are several spiritual laws that you must embrace and learn to make them a part of your being. The great thing is - is that they are simple, yet powerful!
Yes, I read Deepak Chopra's book- The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success and I was completely intrigued and fascinated how he broke down these life facts for us in this simple to read book. If you haven't ever thought like this, it's going to take you several times to read and have your mind grasp it. But that's it, he teaches you that you have the ability to choose to re-read this book or not. No one is ever forcing you to do anything you don't want to do. You have the ability to harness and focus your intention by giving it direct attention, thus making it virtually impossible for the universe not to give you what you focus on. The crazy thing again we are already doing it whether we know it or not.
I love it when I read a book that is self-empowering and then I can share the message in it! The beautiful part of the message is that although we can want for the future, there is no future except in our minds, but because it is there in our minds, the most important is to know that we are present in the now. The now, today is when you can set your intention for the future and it will come to pass because it is the law!
Fun read, I hope you get a chance to read it! I'm feeling an inspiration to write another poem on this topic of choosing and creating through the power of intention- that is my intention for the present, so that in the future, you can read it and be entertained or inspired. My other intention is to finish writing my personal memoirs and take you along on a journey of self-discovery and into loves arms.
