God doesn’t play favors…

With a friend on the phone…
 
So I’m trying to show a friend Hicks… and I send a few Youtube videos.. and give them a week and then ask if they watched…they tell me they aren’t ready cause it scares them….They say..”WHO is Abraham????” I respond.. “Well I don’t know either exactly, and I don’t worry about it all that much.. there is just good advice about happiness there.. thats why I gave it to you cause its what I use.”…Nope..it doesn’t help… they aren’t ready…they make excuses and say it scares them or that they think I’m controlling them.
 
So I change the subject and ask how their day is going.. small talk… then at one point the friend says “You know, you are so blessed.. you always get parking spots and things aren’t hard for you.. your life is so easy! Not like me.. everything is so hard!”.. and I say once again.. “Life is not supposed to be difficult or painful.. at least not all the time.. life is supposed to be mostly joy”
 
I just shake my head
 
Moral of the story.. even your closest friends can SEE the laws unfolding right before their eyes in your life.. and never clue in .. its not some bonus blessings or a blessings lottery…or God/source punishing them. Its them. God/source doesn’t play favors. We all get an equal share.
 
“If source can’t make them see, what makes you think you can?” – AH

Nobody has the answer but you

Some of you are living a fulfilling and complete life. Through luck, hard work, and never giving up, you got it. Congratulations. I know it’s not always happy, but it is on balance.

I haven’t been so lucky. But it’s not luck. I get it. It’s putting in the effort. You only get what you deserve through the work of your own hands and mind. In the past, when I was stuck, I looked for answers. The one thing. The single answer or book or course or social network that could get me to this strange island everyone else seems to be visiting called “happiness”. To be honest, I still seek the answer but I take a wiser approach now. Somehow, I didn’t seem to get the early lesson of actually working hard and that happiness is earned, not deserved.

The most important thing I have learned is that NO SINGLE HUMAN can have the complete answer. It’s not possible. Each of us comes from a single point of reference: our own lives. Even if you read 50 books on destiny and happiness, they might all be wrong and the answer might be in the 51st book.

Even making this post is my arrogant point of view.

One thing I have figured out: we are designed to live and get better. That seems to be our genetic destiny if you look at the human population in the past 300 years. We are getting smarter, faster, and living longer.

But everyone has only so much time.

So if you have a dream, then do it. If you want to be a juggler, cook, pie maker, CEO, or sweeper, do it. You only have this one life (as far as we know). Live without regret. A week from now life could end for something benign, tragic, or accidental like the snap of a finger.

Pursue the dream. Do it smartly. Get some mentors – we are social creatures after all. Read books and use your unique, human-only gift: to think and get better. Don’t try to re-invent. It’s time wasting.

Live.
