“Love the process not the product.”

Attaining success is as precise as any mathematical formula 

Achieving one’s desires is made possible by the fact that Natural Laws exist in the universe and they are as precise as any mathematical formula. As well, each and every one is under the influence of these Laws; there are no exclusions due to gender, location, age, or sex. And as a result of these immutable Laws, there are several time-proven techniques that help us to achieve what we set our hearts and souls upon.

Visualization helps us achieve success 

Many use visualization of either their goal’s features or benefits to arrive at what they set their sights upon. As we focus upon features, it is easier to reach goals when we add our five senses to our sessions. Touch, taste, sound, sight, and smell are the jet fuel that accelerates the process and supports us in our journey of physical and spiritual achievements. However, some find that they are unfamiliar or uncomfortable with fully opening-up and using their complete sensory facilities as a focus of their visualization sessions. If you have tried this technique and have come to the conclusion that it is not for you there is another means available to you; focus your attention upon the benefits of achieving your goal for your Self and for your family.

Focus upon enjoying the benefits, not the features of your goal 

There is a shift in your focus as you dwell upon the benefits and not the features of the goal. Hence, rather than focusing upon that genuine calf leather seats and unique paint job of your new sports car, you focus upon the pride of ownership or your reduced carbon footprint by owning such a unique automobile. Also, a better job provides more money available to send your child to a prestigious college; more retirement income provides more freedom to travel and see the world; and more education provides a more fulfilling life.

Still haven’t attracted success? 

While these two techniques stand under the scrutiny of time and practice, they also provide a workable framework to achieve our goals, still, there are some who have tried these and have not been successful at reaching their goals. They witness others around them achieving their goals and then they feel frustrated, resentment, pity, envy, and other feelings which eventually lead them to giving-up all together and staying in their unpleasant present for perhaps their entire lifetime.

Awareness helps to achieve what you want in life

They have abandoned their goals and have embraced a negative vibratory state, this is a very unfulfilling way to live life since the Source openly provides the means to achieve what we desire, it is our awareness that helps us to achieve what we want and to identify alternate roads to the journey’s end.

Focus upon the process and not the product

There is yet another alternative to achieving your goals and that is to focus upon the process and not the features or benefits of the product. What I mean is that rather than focus upon a new job, or more income, or more goods – which focus upon the product or your end goal, focus upon the process of making those daily steps to your goal and not the end goal itself. For example, you are aware that your company is closing and you will need to find a new job. However, you never earned that college degree or your skills need to be updated since you’ve worked at the same job and at the same company for years.

Be proactive in life  

Rather than waiting for the inevitable and feeling fear and anxiety as most would in this position, be proactive and immediately find a school or program that will get you to the next level to be employable. When you have found that ideal course or degree, then focus upon the here and now and enjoy each moment. Enjoy the positive energy in the classroom with your classmates; enjoy the test of learning new skills; enjoy the grade that you earn from your mid-term test.

Live each moment of the journey and not just for the finish line

With this technique, you set the goal and do not revisit it every day or every hour. You enjoy each moment as it is and there is no pressure upon hitting that end goal since it is not your immediate focus.

What you want and what you achieve can manifest a negative state 

It appears to me that the problems start when you set the goal and then things aren’t progressing as you want and you notice there is a big gap between what you want and where you are. Then the negative feelings set in and this can only result in being in a negative vibratory state which can never bring you closer to your end goal no matter how hard you try to visualize the end product or the many benefits that accompany your greatest want.

Focus upon features or benefits?

Focusing upon features works for some, focusing upon benefits works for others, however, there are some who cannot achieve their goals with either of these proven techniques. For whatever reason, they are unable to effectively use these techniques and rather than give-up and face an unfulfilled life, there is a viable alternative to help you achieve your goals.

Focus upon each moment of the process and not the joy of the product

Focus upon the process and not the product; focus upon each joyous moment as you progress to your goal. Focus upon the little victories as you take the next step in your journey. And as your focus remains upon the process and not the end product, in time you will overcome and succeed where you once believed that there was no hope to attain the lofty heights you had imagined.

“Success does not occur from filling a void of want, rather, success occurs from filling a void with spiritual feelings.”

I want more of this and more of that 

When most are asked if they want to have larger savings, bigger homes, and newer vehicles then they presently have, they will surely respond with a resounding Yes! Then when asked how they go about pursuing a larger bank account, a bigger home, and a newer vehicle, they will no doubt say that they constantly think about wanting more money, wanting a bigger home, and wanting a newer vehicle. With this type of thinking it is not such a big surprise that most have not achieved what they want and instead remain the same with little money, small homes, and old cars.

You cannot receive your wants when in a  negative state of vibration 

This is because when they are thinking about wanting more of any material good, in reality they are asking the Source from a position of want which manifests as negative vibrations which can only lead to negative results seeing that like vibrations attract like vibrations and repel unlike vibrations – this is the Law. Hence, there can certainly be no change in these different areas of their lives.

Do not attempt to fill a void with “things”

Many go out and attempt to change their lives by purchasing things that they long for. They buy these goods from a feeling of want and lack and in a sense they need these various material goods to fill a void. The problem is that filling a void with a request from their want something since there is lack of something does little to fill the void.

You are more than just “things”

The approach of wanting something to make the grade, to impress friends and relatives, or to validate your Self worth can only lead to a negative vibrational state which brings along more misery to you since buying goods when you are not able to then leads to fear of paying the bills when the month-end approaches.

Buying “things” can lead to a vicious cycle of wanting more and more

Then you realize there is a poor economy, you fear losing your job, and this invites even more negative vibrations and more of the same month in and month out, year in and year out. When you buy goods to fill a void, you are operating within a vicious cycle since once you have the new home, vehicle, watch, purse or whatever it is that you believe will fill the void in your life, there is always another thing that you must have, hence, you never succeed at filling the void since once it is filled with one new object there is always more that you want.

“Things” are ephemeral 

Even if you can achieve all of your material goals and regardless of how much money you have in the bank, how large your home is, or how exotic your car is, even though you may have these material trappings today, they are merely ephemeral and you will still feel a void in your life which you rationalize can be filled only by the next hot item or costly thing. Since the root of the problem is that disharmony still exists in your life, it cannot be filled by material goods no matter how large, expensive, or exclusive.

Disharmony in your life maintains your problems, not solve them 

I am not saying that you should avoid having material goals such as larger bank accounts, bigger homes, and newer vehicles, you are here to experience a life that the Source offers to you and part of that life includes unlimited spiritual growth and expansion of material goods as well.

How can we escape from a negative vibrational state? 

However, I am saying that your focus of buying material goods to fill a void creates a negative state of vibration that you cannot escape from and unless you approach your life and the accumulation of material goods in another, more satisfying way you will not feel a long lasting fulfilling life of peace and tranquility that each and every one of us deserves and is offered freely and willingly by the Source no matter where we live, where we work, what our education is, or what our gender.

A positive vibrational state opens the doors to success 

It is easy to move from a negative vibrational state to a positive vibrational state, and in the end your spiritual feelings of peace and tranquility can manifest all the material trappings, in any form that is desired, to you and you will not experience a void that must be filled by the latest trendy or costly object.

Change your thoughts, words, and actions 

When you change your thoughts, you change your words, and when you change your words, you change your actions and when you change your actions you change your future. Think of your spirituality: your spiritual feelings must fill the void first and then you can set material goals not from want but from abundance and joy.

Your soul is full of love, compassion, and joy

Fill your soul with feelings, thoughts, words, and actions of love, compassion, and joy to receive more love, compassion, and joy. Once your soul has experienced this higher state of being, a positive connection between you and the Source, this vibrational state opens the floodgates to having material wealth, and it does not matter if we have a bad economy or there is other foreboding news ahead of you.

Maintain a strong connection with the Source

If your connection to the Source is strong, you will not manifest negative things since you are in a positive state and sending positive vibrations out to the universe which can only result in the same being sent back to you.

Receive all while in a positive vibrational state 

Once you have achieved a positive vibrational state with the Source, you will receive all that you desire – and your want is not from a negative void of want, poverty, or lack. Rather, you are receiving from a positive state of abundance, joy, and love which results in a lasting sense of fulfillment and purpose to your life.

“The Source: enigma of our past, our present, and our future.”

Since the dawn of humankind…

Since the dawn of humankind, we have been in great wonder and awe of the Creator of our universe and everything that exists around us. While we have been perplexed by this all pervasive entity, the ancients viewed the Creator in many forms and an equal amount of legends emerge telling us of various capabilities and wondrous events.

The Source is beyond understanding with our five senses  

It is likely that the Source appears to be enigmatic in our collective eyes since we are unable to comprehend an entity that wields so much power and such immense intelligence, is beyond the grasp of our five senses, and does not exist within this time/space continuum as we understand other objects and entities do so.

There is no beginning and there is no end 

The first major hurdle to comprehend and overcome when we are attempting to accept the Source as the cause and effect of creation is the idea that there is no beginning and there is no ending. In the present physical existence humankind finds itself in, we are conditioned that everything has a start and everything has a finish. Our life has a beginning and our life has an ending; relationships begin and relationships end; seasons begin and seasons end; and friendships begin and friendships end.

Our conditioning has failed us 

This is what we expect and accept within this plane of existence and deem it impossible and improbable that something can have no beginning and no ending. However, we view the Source through the jaundiced eyes of our physical realm of existence although this entity does not adhere to our understanding and definition of human space, human volume, or human time.

From nothing came everything 

Another concern of many is that when the moment of creation occurred, in that nano-second in time, all physical and non-physical things were created in the same instant. As a result, all the thoughts, knowledge, experiences, situations, and people necessary to achieve our goals were created as well. This must be so since all things including thoughts, knowledge, experiences, situations, and people are energy, vibrational energy, and since energy can neither be created nor destroyed it merely takes on a different state than the present state that we see or understand at the present moment.

We are vibrational energy as everything is  

We believe that such things as thought and knowledge were not created at the sacred moment and all the while we also believe that physical bodies end our earthly existence and our future existence as well. Hence, while we have taken on a physical body, nonetheless, we are still part of the Source due to our vibrational energy and must return to the One when our earthy time has expired.  And the same can be said about thoughts, knowledge, experiences, and situations; even though they may have manifested as entities, they are still part of the primordial energy and must remain as such.

The Natural Laws are the grease that sustain and maintain the universe 

Next, there are those who are concerned that the universe does not maintain and sustain itself based upon precise Natural Laws that were created by the Source. There are a myriad of Laws that are concise as any mathematical formula which allow us to send rockets to the moon and satellites to distant stars while we plan and time each step in their journey within a fraction of a second to achieve success. These Laws hold together the universe, keep our planet in the correct orbit, and provide the proper atmosphere for us to live life here on Earth.

We can’t see the Natural Laws but we can see their effects 

Furthermore, we are unable to see gravity or magnetic fields, merely the effects of the Natural Laws, although they exist and can be proven scientifically. For example, when we throw a football or a baseball, we never doubt for a moment that it will eventually fall to earth as gravity takes over and pulls the ball to the ground. And when it comes to seeing the influence of the Natural laws, we do not even see the objects with our eyes as such, rather, we see objects as vibrational forces which we then transform into objects. Still, the continuance of the universe is not and never will be fate or luck or coincidence.

The Source is our benevolent care giver

Now, many are hard pressed to believe that the Source is a benevolent one when they witness such suffering and sadness on this earthly plane of existence. However, we are put through pain and pleasure as a true measure of our Self. We receive pleasure since we can accept it; and we receive pain since we can accept it. We are only given what we can endure, and we endure such trials as a means to grow past a problem we have faced in the past or we face in the present. If we were only given pleasure, would we grow as spiritual beings? If we were given only pain, would we grow as spiritual beings?

Trust the Source…express your gratitude 

We must trust the Source to give us what we need to grow and develop into more spiritual beings, therefore, do not question why you get doses of pain and pleasure. Rather, feel gratitude for the pain and pleasure you receive since these both forge a more spiritual being.

The Source exists within each of us, we are inseparable 

Finally, many are of the opinion that the Source is located in some far-away place and with little compassion for the human race or any other creature that inhabits the universe. However, the Source exists within and around each of us regardless of the place, our gender, age, or social rank. You cannot separate the inseparable, however, you can lose focus and awareness of the sacred connection which then leads us to believe that the Source is anything but benevolent.

Listen to your inner voice to guide you, to protect you

Each of us only has to listen to the voice deep within us to know if we are in harmony or disharmony with the Source. Harmony is about love and compassion and helping others while disharmony is about fear and hate and taking advantage of others. Each of us has that option and hence, free will to make choices. You have the choice to lead a life guided by spirituality or you have a choice to lead a life guided by physicality. Those choices which serve us best are those that put the Source first and then others next.

You have a choice to enjoy endless possibilities 

While the Source continues to be enigmatic in many people’s eyes, there are those who have a deep and solid connection who believe otherwise. The ones who hold the Source first live a life of boundless opportunities and joy while those who hold the physical plane of existence first live a life of fear and frustration never even realizing that they have the same opportunities to feel free and joyful in this physical realm of existence. The choice is yours.
