Failing to receive something desired?
Getting pissed about it?
Persistence seemingly not getting it done?
It’s because the universe is hoping to keep that spot open to/in you – within you and your life – so you can receive something more suited to the authentic you that is even better then your short-sighted ego can even calculate to even know-to-know of.
Sound like a bunch of new age hog-wash?
Often our desires spring forth from unexamined lack-based decisions during our childhood (or young adult lives) amid times when in which “we didn’t know any better”. To put it another way: we were still in the process of learning, and tended to react to our feelings of lack (aka – not receiving our wants) as if we were considered ‘unworthy or receiving’.
Ya see, as kids we know that we are going to get everything we’ve wanted instinctively. Because we know that is why we came here to begin with. But what we didn’t know, was that a lot of what we want carried certain responsibilities… responsibilities that require a certain arch of maturity and resilience backed-knowledge that is required during handling.. That is to say.., so our shit don’t get “blown-up, cracked, broken, burnt down, cut off, tortured, unkept, destroyed, or worse – IGNORED when the next new bright-shiny-object entering our tiny frames-of-reference”.
Some of us threw temper tantrums. Some others withdrew and started to brew resentments. While yet others persisted in an annoying persistence of asking over and over again hoping that eventually we would win the battle; as if it was a battle of wills. (think 2 year old, 14 years, 21 year olds, 35 year olds, 55 year olds – get the picture?)
When we are young (or young-minded) not getting a candy bar is like death. Not getting the toy is like hell. Not getting the car as a teenager is frustrating.. or worse, getting the piece of crap “beater” is down-right embarrassing…… or how about this…, not getting laid is destroying your self esteem socially??
Discouraged, we buried these desires and moved onward into the rest of our lives. Yet, unknown to our waking minds these desires ever still lingering in our subconscious via our ego, hiding just under a few layers, awaiting for a similar opportunity to arise so it can secretly come forth OUT OF NO WHERE (& under a new name) with a barrage of unseen/unexpected internal motivations within this seemingly similar scenario in order to have a-go at it again – but this time WIN!
For those of us who’ve dealt with this or someone going thru this, it is just as exhausting as reading that last sentence.. I apologize. Luckily once it’s over we can make a good laugh at it and move on.
Or how about this scene:
..ever get into a fight with a lover only to find that the actual desire to fight in the first place was really about something & someone else from our pasts?
Almost as if the past was printed on a sheet of clear transparency paper, held up by our mind’s eye at gun point by our disrespected egos, used to obscure the face/being of our current lover with an image of your past rejection as a justification to finally release the pent-up rage thru this seemingly similar situation today?? …only to find that you just started an argument that has nothing to do with the NOW at all? ..all the while your lover looks frustrated, is sad, thrown-off, bewildered, and more importantly thinking you’re a little nuts?
If not, you’re lucky.
If so, you know exactly what I’m getting at.
I’ve been at both sides of this ego-folly.. and I gotta tell ya, frankly it sucks! Either dishing it up, or getting it spoon-fed at mach speed while being blind-sided just plain sucks…
Luckily for all of us, we love our partners… which is probably why our egos chose this person to bring this up unexpectedly… the ego, while it is a self-centered jack-ass at times when being usurped by the pain-body, at least the ego knows it’s own limits, doesn’t want to end the relationship, and is only using the now as what I call “re-creation-trust-theatre-de-macabre”… I’ll post more about this in another post when I have more time…
More simply put, our internal drives to often get “something” in our adult lives that is built on a very similar premise resembling the past in order to grow. ..but not just grow, but grow happier.
We tend want something we think we can’t have. Either because as kids we never got it, weren’t allowed to have it, didn’t know what we had and accidentally lost it/broke it via neglect or inexperience, or.. just stood there in stewing in vehement jealousy towards those that seemingly “got everything”.
Thankfully, as adults we know that no one ever gets everything when we are young. This, as we find out later in life, thru maturity, we realize to be one of the greatest secretive blessings Source has ever given the Earth.
That being: Time.
We are truly in abundance at all times, although as young people we didn’t know this. Meaning: everything has been taken good care of long before you got here. But if you are just figuring this out now, you might be a bit peeved and feel duped, but don’t fret. This is a good thing. If you can take a few days to cool off, hopefully & gracefully you will begin laughing a big Buddha laugh of relief. Probably never being taught to know this as a kid was the best thing ever. Especially if you were a smart-one.
..cuz you would have taken advantage of it.
I did… ..you get to learn from my goof, and I can assure you that not a lot of good comes of it for anyone.
Whether we know it or not we are already WHOLE in all of our endeavors at the onset. Because, SOURCE is helping all of us to be even greater then we are already in our current greatness thus far; Doing so, as to provide (within-and-for-us) that which is coming toward us as we speak with gracious certainty in respect of that which is what we are.
And why wouldn’t existence do this?
What other point could there be to life?
Progressing out of an orderly sequence of growth into something “NEW”– to paraphrase Thomas Troward.
If this is “new” to you, here’s a road map:
- Know-of before you can do.
- Do before you can be.
- Be before you are.
- ..And once you are,………you are now prepared to receive.
- Receive, and now, maintain.
Sounds simple huh?
Well, I know… but it is.
Bummer how life aches for it to be a different way. Yet, we all know the consequences when things are done in a different way. Case in point: The A-Bomb; Losing a perfect lover in our teenage years do to stupidity; …ya get the point right?
Ask yourself this: What would life be like to receive the most comfortable chair in the universe yet not-knowing how unique & special it is only to use it as a shelf for your DVD collection?
..think about that… know anyone who does this sorta thing? Consider them your greatest teacher.
Today, act in-spite of short-sighted desires, received or not, because there is something coming to you that is far greater than your ego knows to know of. For what is about to arrive has been harnessing an unlimited scope of benevolent assistance that will allow you and your lifestyle to be truly exceptional beyond your wildest & most calculated of plans. Because! you are already truly exceptional. Because! you needn’t ever to worry ever again. Because! you will always receive that which is truly exceptional because you already are truly exceptional.
Show the Source Created Universe that now is the time by doing as if you already have what it is you seek by exposing THE ALL THAT YOU ARE as being respectful of the natural process of abundance, receiving, and attend-able proportion, by providing more of the most you can know-to-know by offering it to someone else.

…giggle…….Sounds paradoxical huh?
Luckily for us it’s not.
In order to throw a ball forward we need the created inertial of “a throw”. And to throw great distances we need to pull our arms back first in order to launch the ball forward. Think dynamo. Liken playing catch to digging into your own life first then pulling out what you already have to provide for anything. Cuz strangely enough doing so creates a vacuum.
[To get a better idea of how this works, try doing this under water. It will show ya what happens to the waves of energy all around us when we move and do anything in life that our 5 senses tend not to be aware of on the onset of things. The water in front of us pulls towards us when our arms go back for the wind-up. Then, as the arm moves forward the water behind us swirls forward towards are back. Life in the AIR is now different – and air is comprised of energy…I think ya get the picture]
And what happens in a vacuum? In science, they say the universe abhors a vacuum… So basically put, in regards to getting what you want: the universe fills/wills it in with what ever is closest. Or in this case what ever you have closest within your concentrated emotionally-backed-dominating-thoughts. – – – >> If you’ve got lack on the brain, the mind calls this up from you first to fill the …what?….that’s correct folks – THE VOID.
Sometimes in order to fill our own voids we have to fill a void.
Aka – we get what we give.
Either thru services, products, experience, agility, thinking, repose, wisdom, guidance, or even the biggest damn hug you can muster, doing so is the ultimate form of communication all that is around you. A “communication” that never gets ignored.
…Many like to pretend this isn’t physics. That it is some form of pre-rational pseudo-science based in illusory magic of old.. Ahem… Think again.
Thanks to the rational-age, we now know that some magically defined “happenings” are in scientific fact, we just use modern terms. Post-rational can get confused with pre-rational if you don’t know that experience is the missing link.
When we experience without knowledge of the physical world. We create pre-rational descriptions. Then thru our exploration we gain knowledge that COURSE-CORRECTS the mistaken speculations of the pre-rational efforts. Ironically the pre-rational is the path to the rational… lucky for us, the path beyond the limitations of “ration”ality is what many left-&-right-brained “experienced” thinker-doers have coined as post-rational.
And guess what kids?
Some magic is real. We just call it by a new name now.

..As I attest to all my clients, “somethings last”. “Some-things” exist as a state of mythology, thru a story or a movie, via heroes and most importantly clichés, but still very relevant-&-real. So with that, here’s this:
Fill up your all with all that you are, for as your cup-runneth-over, trust there always will be more of you to catch it.
This is what is called: course-corrective action. You are correcting your course of doing by fully witnessing what it is you can do, to “do”.
Show the universe that you can handle it, by handling what you already have, to the best of your ability! Because you aren’t just a slice of the universe – you are the universe. Apple pie pieces are still apple pie!
I fucking guarantee you will get more of what you ARE.
This is fundamental space-time stuff here. Nothing confusing. We do it all the time, but we rarely know-to-know that we intuitively do this 24/7.
Still don’t believe me? – consider your lungs or your heart.
Movement, progression, forward-ness, all states causal via “dynamism”.
We uncover what is new by expanding our limits then contracting them. We expand our limits by stretching. We stretch by filling. ….We get full by filling up another.
Cliché = PLAYING CATCH!
Strange and mysterious are we `eh?!
Kids love playing catch!
The more ground we cover the more we know to become. And then it is about respecting the ground we covered; harmoniously sustaining and nurturing it as it will now sustain and nurture you. The playing field. As we aren’t taught this you can see why some places look like shit. But as adults we are this at all times, unaware or fully conscious – doesn’t matter / cuz everything “matters”. And matters thru your doing & non-doing.
Thoughts become things when we get a clear sight on our goals, handle our ego generated obstacles with grace & persistence by respecting the trail (or carving the trail) thru becoming what we are trying-to-get thru playing-what-we-want in order to be-what-we-are.
The confusion is that we think ‘respect and trust‘ are somehow non scientific! Get over it, cuz it isn’t truth. Experience via doing tells you this, thinking about doing instead of doing – does not!
We all know the biological effects of helping someone, hugging someone, complimenting someone, kissing someone, trusting someone. The human brain are hard-wired for benevolent-altruism – otherwise we wouldn’t have all the good feeling chemicals in our brains being produced when we help out a stranger, now would we.
So get excited! Trust in everything, cuz trust is EVERYTHING.
Help another and you will get help. It’s a universal law.
Just know, that the help you receive in return is going to be gotten of what is closest to you. And what is closest to you is whatever your dominant focus is focused on.
Increment by increment we seemingly move. Yet experienced mathematicians say we are stationary increments of increments ad-infinitum and that all movement is illusory.
Lucky for us, Source provided all of us with a wormhole:
