Make a declaration.

Most people do not get what they want because either they are unclear about what they want or the other percentage is reticent to talk about what they want. Well, it is time to make a declaration. Declare your independence, complete severance, from formless thinking.

Start this day, and every day hence, with a declaration. Say: I declare that I will eat healthy, low sugar foods today. Or you may say, I declare that I will add ten more minutes of exercise or meditation today. You may declare to visit someone you have missed and haven’t seen in a while.  It’s your declaration, as unique and intentional as your fingerprint. You don’t need approval; just declare this is what I want.

Your declaration contains the force for change.  When you declare your intentions, especially in writing, the universe rushes to fulfill your heart-deep want. You have the power. Consider the Aladdin myth where the genie in a bottle says, “Your wish (declaration) is my command.”  This legend of mentality is actually rooted in ancient texts of universal cannons of attraction. Take time to read Collier, Shinn, Campbell, the book of Paul, Towne, Rumi, Vedic writings, Baha’i scripture, Haanel or others in the same scope. You will find the same theme.

Know what you want and make a declaration for that.

Modern literature, The Secret or The Throne of Your Inner Temple, or Your Best Life Now or Climb Every Obstacle: Eliminate Your Limits! , makes the same direct claim-ask and you shall receive or you get what you pay attention to. The inference is that you can get what you want. There is no need to jump ahead, no need to hoard, no need to be malicious at all; it’s yours-earmarked for you once you know what you want and make a declaration for it.

In the world of physics or particle theory, the atom of energetic declaration starts a vibration that moves and energizes the rush of aide to fulfill your deepest desire. It is best to caution you here: the energy will flow to what you declare you want IF you do not block the vibration resonance with doubt, fear, or negative mind talk.

An intangible declaration can be transmuted into physical fulfillment.

Your declaration is yours to command.

Life is But a Dream

“Row row row your boat
gently down the stream…”

and then downsizing happens, pain, divorce, trauma, death, recession, weight gain, defeat illusions crop up everywhere.

Forget merrily, forget joy, forget prosperity. Forget living.

You are bigger than pain. You are stronger than defeat be it downsizing, divorce, death, weight…whatever your obstacle—you are stronger. You are stronger.

Here is what I want you to do: GO BACK TO YOUR PAIN

  • First, embrace your pain. Really lovingly let your pain in.
  • Second, feel the pain in its most raw, eviscerating state.
  • Third, look at the pain.
  • Fourth, speak to the pain. But, this time don’t run away nor deny your pain. Instead have an honest talk with your pain point and clearly state your feelings. Clearly see yourself in the light of total control and peace.
  • Fifth, feel yourself who you are in front of the pain. Use “I” statements such as “I” am an achiever. “I” am a dancer. “I” am powerful. “I” am love.

Speak out loud exactly who you are and what you thought your self-inflicted, self-loathing pain was blocking you from. Now, erase the pain. Bask in the freedom of being a dancer. Excel as an achiever. Empower yourself with your power.

Zen master Shunrya Suzuki Roshi says enlightenment comes when you follow one thing all the way to the end. Follow your pain, grief, defeat or whatever has imprisoned you until now and then follow your dreams to the end.

Life is but a dream when you wake up from the illusory control of pain. Recognize that you have the power and strength to embrace, see and talk to any of your pain points and follow them to the end so that you find enlightenment.

Pain can never destroy an enlightened person. You are strong. You are no longer a prisoner to pain. No more lies, excuses, denial, shibboleths. No more excuses; excuses be gone!

You don’t need pain. You don’t have to be broken.

You are strong. You are powerful. You are in control.

You can row your boat in a stream, in a torrent, in a storm without fear of losing your way to enlightenment.

Row your boat, be merry, and live the life of your dreams.
