"In optimism there is magic.
In pessimism there is nothing."
-- Abraham, Esther Hicks

[Classic post from 5-11-15]
The quote above came from the end of a workshop in San Rafael, CA on March 4, 1998. I thought I would share it with you because I find it so delightful and helpful:
"We're asking you to trust in the Well-being. In optimism there is magic. In pessimism there is nothing. In positive expectation, there is thrill and success. In pessimism or awareness of what is not wanted, there is nothing.
What you're wanting to do is redefine your relationship with the Stream. [There is only a Stream of Well-being that we are aligning with or resisting.]
We do not ask you to look at something that is black and call it white. We do not ask you to see something that is not as you want it to be and pretend that it is.
What we ask you to do is practice moving your gaze. Practice changing your perspective. Practice talking to different people. Practice going to new places. Practice sifting through the data for the things that feel like you want to feel and using those things to cause you to feel a familiar place.
In other words, we want you to feel familiar in your joy. Familiar in your positive expectation, familiar in your knowing that all is well because this Universe will knock itself out giving you evidence of that Well-being once you find that place."
Letting Go Is A Great Place To Begin To Get Hold.
Spread Some Joy Today--by trusting your journey. As you feel good, you spread your own joy.
