BEST of PONDER on THIS for Wednesday, March 16th, 2022 by Grant Connolly in ALLOWING HAPPINESS ON CUE

“We say to ourselves, “I want to have the money to buy the things that will make my life easier.” We hear ourselves ask for this and then when it doesn’t promptly show up we say that God has forsaken us or that He doesn’t exist or that the Law of Attraction doesn’t work. However, when we ask for something, we’re not listening to what we’re really asking for, and it goes something like this. “I want to have the money to buy the things to make my life easier,” and if you listen closely you’ll hear a big BUT tacked onto the end of our request.

“I want the money, BUT I’d need to work a few extra hours to get it, or, the government would only take most of it in tax anyway, or, I just never seem to get what I want.” It always feels good to think about having extra money, but there always seems to be an under-thought that finishes our sentences with a big but, and those thoughts never feel good when we think them. When we ask for anything we’re sending a signal to the Universe that says, “Give me this!” Our desire for anything is a call to the Universe that says, “Hey Universe, this is what I want” and the Universe says, “Where shall I put it?”

Blocked desire on the other hand says “I really want this, but.” The Universe, always our faithful provider says, “Your wish is my command,” and gives you the but of your desire. The but is whatever it is that follows the original request. You literally get that. Buts negate that part of the request that you really want.”
