"Life Strategy 4: Manifestation"

A New Beauty

Make peace with the universe. Take joy in it.
It will turn to gold. Resurrection
will be now. Every moment,
a new beauty.

In our last session, we discussed "Life Strategy 3., Manifesting". In this session, we explore "Life Strategy 4., Manifestation". One may wonder what the distinction would be between the two, and rightfully so. We consider manifesting to be the intentful participation in the process of creation. Manifestation, then becomes our new relationship with the results.

But what if the resulting actuality (in response to our manifesting) is not obvious to us? Or worse, even unappealing? At this point, we suggest setting aside all existing models of visualization, so as to be receptive to the very thing you were asking for. Let's try that now.
Very good.

We do caution you to exercise receptivity in developing your relationship with that which you have manifested. Keep a record of what you are capable of manifesting. We are often more adept at manifesting that which we do not want in our lives. This week, try to do otherwise. Good luck with that.

and meandering little byways.”

Tom, this is the funniest thing I have ever seen. Beneath that, I do find the message of manifestation: use what you have, do the best you can, and appreciate what you get out of it. I can do that!
