If I want to be loved, but don’t feel lovable… I’m going to make it difficult. I’m going to choose the wrong person.
If I want to be successful, but don’t feel like a success… I’m going to make it difficult. I’m going to choose the wrong job.
If I want to be happy, but don’t feel happy in my heart… I’m going to make it difficult. I’m going to choose the wrong situations.
In all these cases, I treat the outside world as the final goal… but since I don’t feel I deserve any of its blessings, unconsciously I’m going to block them.
But what if I admit to myself that I might be the problem? What if not changing the outside world, but inner transformation has been the true goal all along? What would happen if I made friends with my heart — told it it was lovable, successful and happy — and then began to feel it, trust it, believe it? Then maybe I would begin choosing easier paths rather than impossible ones. Then maybe I wouldn’t sabotage myself… every single time.
When we truly believe that we deserve love, success and happiness, we will feel them… we will believe them, and we will attract them… with little to no effort.
Attracting what we want… wouldn’t that be the simpler way we’ve been looking for… all these years?
