How to End Struggle

 

 

Most people have the misconception that you get what you want in life by the actions that you take. By

what you do, that the doing, the action part, is what makes things happen. As you will learn in a few

minutes this is false. In fact, if you analyze it, most people’s actions are spent trying to compensate for

inappropriate creating. What do I mean by that; we have been programmed to believe that in order to

have what we want we must work hard. This is a core belief of most people. How many times have you

heard, no pain no gain. The implication is that if you want to be successful at anything you must work

hard. The message is clear; if you are not suffering or struggling you are not making progress. But

here’s the truth, anytime that you are suffering or struggling you are miss creating. Anytime you

struggle or feel pain, you are attracting what you don’t want rather than what you do want. I will repeat

that because it’s so important. Anytime you struggle or feel pain, you are attracting what you don’t

want rather than what you do want. The reason we tend to put a lot of emphasis on action is because

we don’t understand the power of deliberate creation and the laws of quantum physics. Once you

understand how this creative process works and cooperate with it, you will find there’s a lot less action

needed to accomplish your goals. Most of our actions are spent putting out brush fires that we’ve

created along the way because we were miss creating. So, we have to make actions to correct out

mistakes. However, when you use the process of deliberate creation you’ll see that the universe will

provide a different set of circumstances for you that require much less action. Now, I’m not saying that

actions are not important or necessary, the point that I’m trying to make is that most of the actions

that people take are not in harmony with their true desires. Most people act out of doubt, fear and

worry. They are using action to compensate for inappropriate creating. The Chinese philosopher,

Latsoo, said this, “In the practice of the way every day something is dropped. Less and less do you need

to force things until finally you arrive at the place of none action, where nothing is done, and nothing is

left undone.” When I first read this quote, it made absolutely no sense to me that was because I had

never had the experience of achieving without doing. I was brought up to believe that you have to work

hard to get what you want and of course that was my life experience.

There’s another Tao story about a group of confusion intellectuals that came across the waterfall by

strolling through the woods. As they looked into the water they noticed the body of an old man

bumping up and down in the roaring, churning water. Horrified they rushed to the edge of the water

trying to figure out how they were going to get the body out of the water and give it a descent burial.

Their discussion suddenly came to an abrupt end when the supposedly dead old man pups out of the

water dries himself off, and walks away. Astonished the scholars went after the old man and asked,

“How did you survive in that water, no one could swim in that water without being killed?” “It’s really

easy!” the old man told them. “You just go up when the water goes up, and you go down when the

water goes down.” In other words you don’t resist the natural flow of the water. The lesson here is that

you don’t have to struggle.

The problem is that most of us are preoccupied with our doing. Unfortunately most of our doing

usually involve struggle. In the western world we are conditioned to be action-oriented. So, we place a

tremendous value on doing. We are so busy doing, that we don’t realize that all this doingness causes

us to create in reverse. The problem is that when you place your emphasis on doing or taking action,

you are limited to how much you can accomplish because you can only do so much. In addition to

creating in reverse, not much of our action gets done with joy. We are conditioned to deliberately

sacrifice joy in the moment for the sake of rewards in the future that we believe will bring us the

happiness and satisfaction that we seek. This causes us to live out of the moment and look to some

point or a place in the future for our happiness. However, as you have learnt, your present moment is

your future. So, when you arrive at what you call your future, you are unhappy because you’re not

there. You are looking toward another point in the future when you will be happy and satisfied.

Most of this is the result of placing our emphasis on creating through action or doing instead of

through our thoughts. Because we place so much emphasis on what we need to do, we think nothing

will get done unless we do something. We are trying to force our desire into manifestation through

action. Yet, most of these actions are unnecessary and are often counterproductive. This causes us to

take another action to try to fix the last action. Then getting more frustrated we take another action

and so on.

People often say to me, “What should I do, or I don’t know what to do?”

The answer is simple. If you don’t know what to do, don’t do anything. The fact that you don’t know

what to do means that you don’t have enough information yet so don’t do anything.

When is time for action, you will feel positive emotion from your internal guidance system and your

authentic self and that’s your clue to move. Otherwise, the action is counterproductive.

Again, realize that it’s not your action that makes things happen, it’s your intent. Most people believe

that they have to put in a certain amount of activity or action in order to get a certain amount of

results. In addition they think there’s only so much action that they can take within a limited period of

time, so they’re always stressed out. The only reason they are stressed out is because they believe that

their actions do the creating. Most people try to use action rather than aligning their energy with their

intentions. As a result, they feel overwhelmed because they can’t produce enough action, or they can’t

put enough effort to make things happen. The proper use of action is to reap or collect the rewards of

what you’ve created through your thought.

The key is to make a decision that any action that you take will always come after and be based on

what you have been thinking and feeling. Here’s the secret, you could reduce the need for action to a

minimum by allowing yourself to focus on what you desire until you feel the positive energy begin to

move within you. Trust me, if you will do this, you will know when is time to take action, and when you

do, it will be effortless. Doors will open and the entire universe will conspire to assist you in creating

your desire. Put simply, you should take no action on anything until you have visualized your desire

and made it real enough in your mind so that your next action or the next step, whatever it is seems

like the most logical step. How can you know if the next step is a logical step?

Here’s a test that you can give yourself before taking any action. If you focus on what you desire and

still feel overwhelmed or anxious then you’re not ready for action. You know, you are ready for action,

when it feels like the next logical step is effortless. That means there’s no effort, no strain and no pain.

Unfortunately, most of the time we are trying to force things to happen. So, the next action that we

take doesn’t feel like the next logical step. And the reason it doesn’t feel that way it’s because is not the

next logical step. What we need to do is to use the leverage of creative energy. The same force that

creates everything in the universe. For example, earlier we talked about flip switching, and I said, “All

you needed to do was to hold any thought that made you feel better for just fifteen seconds.” I use this

number because of the research I have done in observing the change in people when they focus their

energy on anything that made them feel good for a certain period of time.

What we don’t realize is that it doesn’t take much time to shift things in our lives. It’s not the time we

spend doing things, but the time we spend that’s not interrupted by our doubts, fears and worries. In

fact, 15 seconds of thought not contradicted by fear, doubt or worry is equivalent to over 10 hours of

activity. Just 60 seconds of non contradicted thought is equivalent to more action than you could take

in the day. Keep in mind that thought is 100 times more powerful than action. Action is absolutely

necessary, but it should not be used to replace creative thought. The problem is, we rarely hold

ourselves in focus with non contradictive thought for even 15 seconds. We are so caught up in thinking

about our current circumstances or what’s happening in the moment that we feel that we must put in

more time, more mental effort and more physical activity to change our circumstances and create

what we want. Have you ever seen people who seem to have all the wonderful things in life without

much effort? They seem to have an advantage over everyone else. Then you notice that the people

who work the hardest usually have the least. That doesn’t seem fair, does it? But that’s the way the

universe works.

Unfortunately, those who work the hardest usually have the least because they haven’t learned the

leverage of aligning their energy with their intentions. They are going about creating their lives the

hard way. They are trying to use their actions to create what they want.

If you observe poor people, what do they all have in common? They only know how to use their actions

to create what they want. They have no idea that they can create what they want through their

thoughts and thereby only have to take 10 percent of the actions if they are currently taking to get the

same results. If they focus on what they want instead of what they don’t want, they could increase the

result by a hundredfold.

Remember the creation of anything is through your vibration. Everything vibrates and it’s by that

vibration that we harmonize and attract our results. So, before you act or do anything ask yourself first,

what am I vibrating? How can you tell what you are vibrating? You know the answer to that by now, but

in case you missed it, you can tell by how you feel. Your feelings are a clear indicator of what you are

vibrating or sending out, and more importantly how you feel determines what you attract. So to sum

this up, action is a necessary step but it must always be the last step. It cannot be used effectively to

create what you want. If you want to create through your actions by forcing things to happen. You can

get the same result but your life will be one  stress, worry and anxiety. You can avoid all of these and

get the same or a better result. All you have to do is to focus on what you desire and then step back

and wait until you feel positive emotion to take action. When you take action based on positive

emotion, it will not only be the right action, but it will be effortless. The end result is, you will have what

you desire and at the same time live a happy stress free life.

One of the things we have to be careful of is using the words want and need. When you use the words

want and need, you communicate to yourself and to the universe that you don’t already have

something, which is your first mistake. Also, that you are in a state of not having it but wishing that you

did, which is your second mistake. The problem is compounded by the fact that wanting and needing

are perpetual states of lack. We all want something out of life. Yet, the problem is that most of us

spend a whole lot of time on wanting, and very little time in the state of having or accepting. Consider

this, if you tell yourself that you want something then you don’t have it otherwise you wouldn’t want it.

Thinking in terms of wanting only creates more wanting. Wanting implies lack. When you consistently

say that you want something, your subconscious mind assumes that you don’t have it. When you want

something without believing that you already have it then you attract more of not having it because

that is the map of your reality. By putting yourself in a state of having or accepting rather than wanting,

your thoughts vibrate at a higher level. So, instead of thinking I want a new car; think that I accept that I

have a new car. Instead of thinking, I wish I were rich, think I accept that I am rich. Now this may seem

like mental gymnastics, but it’s not. The mental state of accepting that you have something is the key to

manifesting. Actually, you never get what you want, now you may disagree with this. But it’s a fact; it

only looks like people get what they say they want. But this is not so. What actually happens is that

they eventually shift from the state of wanting to finally accepting that it’s possible for them, and then,

they get what they initially wanted. But as long as they are in the state of wanting, they cannot get what

they want. This unconscious shifting from a state of wanting to a state of having or accepting is easily

done all the time, but often for small things. However, what if you wanted something big? Something

that you’ve never achieved before. Would you still get it if you wanted it? If it is something big or

something that you’ve never done before it’s a lot harder for you to unconsciously shift from the

wanting state because you haven’t experienced it before. For example, if you found yourself wanting

50 dollars it would be easy for you to unconsciously shift from the state of wanting to accepting that it

was possible for you to create 50 dollars, then you would do something to bring about the 50 dollars,

because you’ve done it before over and over again. But what if you wanted a million dollars but you

never had or never earned more than 25 thousand at one time in your life before. Would you be able

to shift unconsciously from wanting a million dollars to accepting that you could create it? Most likely

not!! So, the more you want something, the more it will elude you. Since you can never get what you

want, what’s the solution? Simple, replace want with desire, say to yourself I desire. Why is this

important? Because, if you have a desire, any desire, it also indicates that you have a built-in ability to

manifest it. For example, you may have worked at a job for most of your life, but you have a desire to

start a particular type of business or a career that appeals to you. If you have a desire to do so, this

indicates that you also have the innate ability to be able to learn how to start and be successful at that

type of business or career. Your authentic self or your essential silent partner knows everything that

you need to do to make this happen. A true desire not a want, is a message from your authentic self

that you are in harmony with your life purpose. Unlike wanting desire isn’t a denial that you don’t have

what you want. Desire is a yearning to have what is already yours. People may say they are the same

thing but they are not. Now before I continue, let me clarify an important point. You often hear me say,

“Focus on what you want”, that may sound like a statement of wanting, or not having, but when I use

the term want; I unconsciously understand that I already have it, I consider it a desire. My point here,

it’s not so much the words want and need we should be avoiding. What we want to avoid is the state of

wanting and needing. It doesn’t help to avoid the words want and need and replace them with the

word desire if at the same time we are in fact in a state of wanting and needing. Language is a symbol

that’s used to represent an idea. For most people the words want and need are symbols that represent

an idea or a state of not having something. It is therefore the state that you should avoid. I’m not

saying that you shouldn’t use the word want but be careful when you use it in the context of invoking a

state of not having. When you are in a state of not needing and not wanting, it frees the subconscious

mind to open up a path to that particular result. It allows you to have an intention and at the same

time be detached about the outcome. When you don’t want or need something it’s much easier to be

detached from the outcome. You still intend to have a future outcome you are still certain of it, but you

are detached as to what’s happening in the present moment. For example, assume that you intend to

be a millionaire but at the present moment events are moving in such a way it suggests that you are

not going to reach your goal. You will make the best progress towards that goal if you are detached

about your present moment. Meaning you accept the present moment as it is, instead of fighting it and

getting frustrated and losing hope, but regardless of your detachment, you keep your certainty about

your outcome in the future. About becoming a millionaire.

The secret is to have an intention and certainty concerning the outcome of your desire. But at the

same time be detached to what’s happening in the present moment. I’ll say that again, because it’s

important. The secret is to have an intention and certainty concerning the outcome of your desire. But

at the same time be detached to what’s happening in the present moment.  If you will do this your life

will become richer and much happier. Resistance and frustration will be a thing of the past and you will

increase your certainty and confidence in creating what you desire.

Hopefully you have learned by now that you cannot fail to get what you desire if your goals are clear

and if you are certain. When you are certain it’s impossible to fail. Failure would mean breaking the

laws of the universe. So certainty enables you to relax, knowing that whatever you desire is on the way

to you regardless of how your present moment looks. If you train yourself to become detached from

what’s happening in the present moment it enables you to give up all resistance. By giving up all

resistance you automatically place yourself in a state of allowing. Instead of resisting you allow your

desire to come to you easily and effortlessly.

When you are not in the state of needing or wanting you are in alignment with your purpose. Also

please remember that, others do not have to do without in order for you to have what you desire.

We live in a limitless universe where is more than enough for everyone. Lack and scarcity are an

illusion. If there is a lack, it’s because we create it through our thoughts. At the quantum level there is

an unlimited potential supply of everything. A good example of how this works is to think of the

internet. You can order digital software music and downloaded products online. The individual

company offering these products will never run out, no matter how many people download, there will

always be more. How do you run out of music or software download? It’s impossible, no matter how

many copies you download. The original still remains. This is how the universe works. It can supply

more than enough for everyone without running out. When you believe in scarcity or there’s not

enough of anything, it will become a self-fulfilling prophecy. This is true for an individual, town, city,

state, country or the world. The law of attraction never stops working. So, all you have to do is to allow

what you desire to come to you and then do not take any action on that desire until you feel positive

emotion within you. At that moment you will know what to do, and it will always be the right thing at

the right time.
