So the last post has started some interesting discussion on how responsible we are for manifesting what happens in our life. And raises some interesting questions…
So do I think one person manifested the 9/11 terrorist attacks, tsunamis and wars? No. But do I think many people did? Yes.
Now I should state right up front, I’m on this journey of enlightenment just as you are. I don’t have all the answers and I run away from anyone that tells me they do.
I’ve learned a great deal about prosperity after studying it for the last 20 years. And also learned how much about it I don’t know…
I don’t know why babies are born with AIDS, young people get killed in tragic accidents, or the Cubs can’t win a World Series. But I do believe there are blessings in every challenge, and lessons, growth and ultimately prosperity in what they bring us.
And I think there is some give and take between us in relationships. I may face a challenge that helps someone that loves me to help me and learn a lesson. Someone I love may face a challenge that allows me to help them and develop my own enlightenment.
When you look at the work of someone such as Mother Theresa, you can imagine the magnificent joy, peace and prosperity it brought to her. Along with a lot of challenges she probably struggled with in her human nature.
At the end of the day, I do believe we are co-creator of our reality, good or bad. Charles Fillmore taught that prosperity is all around us in the ethers, everywhere on earth. There is no place on earth that prosperity is not, even the most desolate barrios and ghettos. But to manifest it from the ethers into the physical realm we need to use the power of thought: Ideas.
