I wonder....what really is true? Probably there's some truth to all of it. To find an answer that resonates with me, that feels true to my soul, I have to go within and ask myself...what has been my experience with what I call God and provision? How about with the Law of Attraction?
I have to ask myself....what does becoming or being "rich" really mean to me? Why have I never had this fervor of pursuing to make a lot of money? Some people tell me....."you have to dream BIG".....
Could it be that deep within I don't feel worthy? Do I feel incapable? Maybe...to some extent.
Yet.....still......to go back to the answer I mentioned above...the one I find within.
Well, my experience, very personal and particular, is that God HAS and DOES provide for me.
There have been times when I did apply the Law of Attraction, way before I even heard of it.
For example. Years ago, when I was searching to buy an apartment, I took an index card and wrote on it the following specifications regarding the desired apartment:
- 3 - 4 specific neighborhoods
- certain characteristics of the structure (spacious, lots of windows and light coming in, privacy, good neighbors, good structure)
- Other particulars: close to my parents' home, public transportation/pharmacy, etc. at a reasonable distance)
- Affordable: at a price I could afford and have money left over to do some repairs/restructuring
I've practiced this in another instance in my life....with a job search in the past. Same thing.
I find this is not a formula....it doesn't always happen my way. Why? I don't know. This is a pending conversation I have with God. But I do think that ultimately, God knows what's best for me, God sees the bigger picture, I don't. My willingness (sometimes not so willingly) to ask God to guide me to my greatest good allows me to witness these "miracles" in my life. It could be that my willingness to allow God to provide for me (and knowing I am loved ultimately...no matter what), dissipates the desire to make a lot of money.
A wise friend of mine once wrote: is money what you really want? Or is it an experience of comfort, security, adventure, or beauty that money can offer you?
I choose the experience.
