Just like we had to earn our birth and our death too eh?
Did we earn our bodies? Do we earn injury done to us by others?
Do we earn our imaginations, our dreams?
Does religion teach us we have to earn forgiveness? Apparently, all we have to do is simply ask for it...not particularly hard work.
No...none of the above.
Having to earn anything is incorrect. We simply ASK for it. Whether that be in the form of enlightenment (whatever that may be), or for material
The universe gives us what we REALLY ask for..the trick is in knowing what you are asking.
Ok..edit to add:
I wasn't going to share this, but everyone seems to be opening up so...
My wife and i decided to leave it until later in life to start a family, and get all the rubbish out of the way first. You know the kind of things
early 20 somethings get up to.
Travelling, clubs,pubs, hobbies etc.
We decided the time was right around 2002 after being together for about 14 years.
We tried and nothing happened. We tried altering our diets and lifestyles...nothing. This went on for over three years, and still nothing.
We resigned ourselves to testing etc. we all came back as normal, or nothing wrong with us physically, so we then opted to go for IVF treatment.
Not being religious, or more accurately not believing in organised or mainstream religion and more spiritual, one night when my wife had gone to bed,
i decided to ASK for what i really wanted.
Who did i ask? Not who..but what.
The universe, is not a thing or an entity. It is everything, literally.
You don't have to look up at the stars (although it won't hurt if you did), or the sky or anything.
Just picture everything in your mind. Imagine the universe's energy flowing through you, through your pores, your bones and most importantly, your
mind and heart.
You will feel a restful, peaceful connection, not in your mind, but through your entire 'self'.
At this point, while calm and focused and you can 'feel' the universe is taking notice, ask for what you want or need.
BE SPECIFIC! Don't be vague, or simpering.
Don't be angry, anxious, upset or even happy and euphoric..just calm, focused and relaxed.
I asked for a family.
I said please allow me the chance to become a father, and in exchange i will be the best father i can be. I will love and cherish my family, and look
after them as best i can. I will teach them the things i know, and the things i feel are important. I will teach them to be good people, and to know
Well...a month went by, and we had our appointment to start our first round of IVF treatment on the Wednesday. The day before, on the Tuesday my wife
said she felt something different inside (not moving, but an intuition), so we did a test...
A bold, dark line showed up in the tester window! We were pregnant!
8.5 months later our first Beautiful baby boy was born.
I said a quiet thank you to the universe. We went through exactly the same with our second child, although it was 2.5 years of trying, not 3 this
time, and no IVF appointment. I did ask the universe nicely again, and sure enough...you can guess the rest.
You do not have to earn your right to anything. Earning and work is a fallacy put out by the slave drivers and controllers to get you to do what they
don't want to do...which is they way most humans see life. Work, play, work, play, die.
It doesn't have to be like that. Not if you don't want it like that.
"Ask, and ye shall receive" is not just for the bible bashers!
