7 Blocks- F/S/G/H/L/I/E
Excerpts from the book ‘Ask and It’s Given’ By Esther and Jerry Hicks.
If you were driving a vehicle at 100 miles per hour and you hit the tree, you would experience a very big crash. However, if you were to hit the same tree and your vehicle was travelling and just 5 miles per hour, the outcome would be constitutively different. See the speed of your vehicle like the power of your desire. In other words, the more you want something or the longer you have been focusing up on your desire, the faster the energy moves. The tree in our analogy represents the resistance or the contradictory thoughts that may be present.
It is not pleasant to run into trees, and it is also not pleasant to hold on powerful desires in the midst of great resistance.
Behind every Desire is the desire to feel good
There is no Desire that anyone holes for any other reason than that they believe they will feel better in the achievement of it. Whether it is a material object, a physical state of being, a relationship, a condition or a circumstance- at the heart of every Desire, is a desire to feel good. And so, the standard of success in life is not the things or the money- the Standard of success is absolutely the amount of joy you feel.
The basis of life is freedom, and the result of life is expansion but the purpose of your life is joy. And that is why the main event has never been the manifestation.
