Happy New Year everyone! I love how ‘new beginnings’ always make us feel. We wake up on the 1st and say, “Okay! Let’s DO this! This year is MY year! Out with the old and in with the new! This year I’m gonna do ______ and I’m gonna get ________!” And really, we should say that. But why not say that every month? Or every week? How about every day? What if every day we woke up and said “Okay! This is gonna be MY day! WooHoo!” Imagine the difference it would make. But that isn’t really the point of this particular blog…I’ll get to that another time.
Here’s my point. One of the mistakes we all make this time of year, or at any new beginning is to make it into a really big deal. We HAVE to come up with a resolution. We HAVE to figure out all the bad things we’ve been doing to ourselves or in our lives and we HAVE to resolve to NOT do those things anymore. It’s very action based. ‘I’m going to DO this, and I’m going to DO this.’ But what if we just let go. What if we just decided to say, “Ah the hell with it! I’m just going to relax, let go, and see where life takes me. I’m just going to sit back and enjoy the ride.”
Today I’m going to leave you with an Abraham quote:
“Most rarely align with their true power, because it seems illogical to them that there is power in relaxation, in letting go, or in love or joy or bliss. Most people do not understand that their true power lies in releasing resistance—which is the only obstacle to their true power.
Most people do not expect their path to great abundance to be one of ease and of joy. They have been taught that struggle and hardship and sacrifice are requirements that must be met before the reward of great abundance can be realized. Most do not understand that the very struggle they deliberately involve themselves in, in their quest for success and advantage, actually works against them.
There are so many things that you have been taught to believe that are counter to the powerful Laws of the Universe that it is difficult for you to think your way out. And that is the reason that we present this path of much less resistance.
We want you to breathe rather than try, to relax rather than offer effort, to smile rather than struggle, to be rather than do. For your true power is experienced only from inside the Vortex.” —Abraham
So, even though it seems illogical.
Let’s all just sit back and enjoy the ride.
