Why do we do our work? Is it for favors from an external source or is it to express our creative joy and to satisfy our own instincts for survival? Is it any-body's business or work to make anything happen? What is the basis for a magical belief that an erroneously identified separate, special-self, determines that its deeds or vibration or prayers of manifestation are the cause of events, happening? Is there joy to do your work with no attachment to the outcome? Is there 'anyone' capable of letting anything happen, or avoiding the happening? Is there a Law of Attraction? Who's law is it? Does the 'Universe' follow any of my laws for personal satisfaction?
The Law of Attraction pronounces that if we reach and maintain a certain quality of vibration, The Universe must find a way to bring it about. Really? Do we have any idea of what this special frequency might be? All for this little ole' illusory me? The Law of Attraction is said to make this promise. It may be a belief, it may be a matter of faith, it may be an illusion, it may be an infinite field of possibilities that we cannot see. What it is not: It is not an absolute truth. It is a good point of inquiry to look and see if there is any absolute truth, at all. It is a very good point of inquiry to look and see why we need for there to be.
There are no need for promises, here. Here, the world is spectacular just as it is. This hum-drum little every-day earth world that just happens to yield delicious, blossoming, fruity awareness from groundless emptiness. Pretty darn spectacular...
The invitation is to leave it alone. To let life be. To know yourself as being lived. That is what is happening here. Life is alive as you, through your breath, through your being. Don't look for it elsewhere. It does you and undoes you, over and over again. You are not the doer. Stop claiming that you are, and your relentless despair of knowing you are not, will dissolve. The belief in the doer, is what deadens you, and crushes your heart. And yet you fear death. The only death you will ever know is this lifeless longing. Question these beliefs, awaken from them, and live it out loud. Then you will know yourself as boundless life, as freedom, and your body will age and die fully alive, without regret, endlessly beautiful.
