By the time we reach adulthood, we’ve been exposed to a countless array of beliefs. Some of them are good; some bad; some in between. Many serve us, and many do not. Such beliefs cover every aspect of the human condition. We have been told this, that, and something else about everything. To be successful in a certain field, here are the prerequisites. This is the path that must be followed, for the way has been defined. No other routes exist. Such thinking is gift wrapped and made to look attractive; and as good human beings we most often receive it–unquestioned–with open arms. Taught by people in authority, we have been conditioned in a way that leaves little or no room for different ways of being. Or thinking.
The problem with this type of conditioning is that it contains flaws. Although it may point toward a path that will lead to the manifestation of our dream, it can–if allowed–set roadblocks between us and what we desire to achieve. Think of where Microsoft might be today if Bill Gates had absolutely believed he had to graduate from Harvard. Where, too, would the world be if Edision–who was home-schooled from the age of eleven–believed that such a circumstance and a hearing deficit had to determine his future? Would the world have the music of John Lennon and Paul McCartney–who were largely self taught–if they hadn’t believed in their ability to make it?
With regard to certain goals and aspirations, no one is debating that certain conditions might be better met than tossed aside, especially if supported by logic. But–and this is a big but–from a Law of Attraction point of view, we should also realize that believing in a certain set of conditions actually creates such conditions! A balance between the two perspectives might be the best: to live from a practical viewpoint that also leaves room to receive inspiration from the Divine and Infinite Intelligence that surrounds us. Would that not be wiser?
The point about unconditional living is that we, as deliberate creators, live more successfully when we remain open. A questioning mind will always take us farther than one that knows it all. We are also wise to realize that a multitude of ways exist to do anything: new ways; better ways; ingenious ways; creative ways. These avenues to creation come alive to us when we question the conditions or barriers that we may have believed integral to achievement. An open mind–while at risk to the dangers of negative programming–is also the conduit to the very best life has to offer! Our dreams and goals may manifest in ways unique to us! We have the gift of intuitive powers through which we may find our way. It’s up to us to decide whether we live in accordance with such wisdom or not.
Dare to dream (and care for one another).
