One of my favorite words is affluence. The dictionary defines affluence as meaning “to be in the flow.” How often do I actually feel in the flow? How much of my life experience is one of affluence? I observe that many people do not have a clear idea of what they would like to focus on in life. Others know exactly what they deeply desire and yet are afraid to say it, or to even think it. Both are experiencing some form of resistance to having that which they desire.

I notice Spirit is infinitely creative, always progressive. It’s the river that continuously flows in an ever-expanding way. This is my own true nature as well. Yet I have often resisted my natural inclination to be in the flow, to be affluent. 

Resistance became a habit, like withholding Love.

Like me, almost everyone I meet has a goal, a dream or desire that they really, deeply want to see fulfilled, and yet the years go by and the dream remains unattained. We know the steps that need to be taken to achieve our goal and yet we don’t take them. And then we feel stupid, foolish, insane.

I know very spiritual people who don’t pray for the very things they desire most. Sometimes I am that person. 

This is the resistance. For so long, the resistance seemed to have me in its grip.

I’ve learned that if resistance is strong,  instead of focusing on the end result, I am better served by focusing on the resistance itself. I become willing to release, resolve and dissolve the resistance so that there’s true flow in my life and then I can be affluent, in the flow of Love.

When I’m in the flow I am enjoying my path very much. I feel a natural joy. Being in the flow is yummy and fulfilling. I recognize that it’s because I am more and more receptive to the yumminess that God is always pouring forth. God has not changed, life has not changed. I’ve changed. The flow was always there, is always there. I can be in it or not.

I’m in the flow when I’m working for the good of all, when I’m seeing all as one.

There’s nothing to resist so I give up my resistance.

I desire to know my true identity so fully and completely that it obliterates any remembrance of a false ego identity. Today my awareness expands to know the Truth fully. 

Today I am more and more receptive because I am less and less resistant to having the life I desire. I am more receptive because my spiritual practice of being loving leads me to see that all is one and there’s nothing to resist. 

My dream, my goal, my desire is Divine desire in me. The more I trust the flow of the river the safer it is. In this way I am an example. In this way I am a safe place and make the world a place of greater peace.

THIS Sunday – February 11th – Eliminating Reluctance & Resistance:  A 3-hour workshop with me.  

We all have resistance.  We all have reluctance.  The question is do we give into it and let it drag us down?  There are spiritual methods we can use that work.  Let’s eliminate all reluctance and resistance and celebrate the gift of life!

NEW PODCAST EPISODE!  The most recent episode of my podcast’s topic is There Is No Death. All is one and so there is but one eternal life, and so there can be no actual death. What does that actually mean for us on a day-to-day level? Can we actually experience the oneness of all life and how do we know if we are? In this week’s episode, I share my own experiences of the unity of life, and the benefits of taking a stand for oneness, in other words, accepting the atonement for ourselves.
