Yes, you can sit by the phone and wait for a call that will solve all your problems, BUT more often than not, the answer to your desires and prayers will come only when you start to take action!
I know some of you Laws of Attraction fans out there are going to blast me for this. And yes, sometimes the solutions just call you up after you have been thinking about them. But think of it this way; each step you take toward your desire is you affirming with the Universe that yes, you do intend to manifest your intention in your life.
So let me blast you with some some of my favorite quotes on this matter.
“God can do no more FOR you then God can do THROUGH you.”
Eric Butterworth, Spiritual Economics
THROUGH YOU! Did you hear that? Things don’t just happen TO you and FOR you, they happen THROUGH you and through your actions, as well as your thoughts.
“That which you are seeking is seeking you.”
Won’t it happen faster if you meet it half way?
“I pray like everything depends on God; then I work as if everything depends on me.”
-George Washington Carver
If you want to write that best seller, build that home, get that degree, etc. you can pray all you want, but you are going to have to work too!
“But more often than not, you have to do something. You actually have to take action. You have to participate in the manifestation process, because it’s a co-creation process. You do something, and the universe… also kicks in and does its part. It’s a joint effort here.”
Joe Vitale, “The Awakening Course”
CO-CREATION!!! Meaning both are making efforts.
“It’s incumbent upon us to physically move in the general direction of our dreams…There cannot be happy accidents, lovely serendipities, or so-called coincidences if we’re just sitting on our couches with a vision board, waiting for Oprah to call!”
Mike Dooley, “Manifesting Change”
This is why we always stay open to other possibilities. Because while you are moving toward your intention, the Universe just might send you a faster route to get there. Pay attention!
“Actions make beautiful prayers.”
This was a post by my friend Raina on her Facebook page. So I am not sure where it came from, but I love it! And what a great way for the spiritual among us to think about it – actions make beautiful prayers, so when you pray, move your ass!
Takeaway: Take action toward achieving your desires.
