An Unscripted Life

An Unscripted Life

The process of learning about the Law of Attraction is also the process of learning more about life. The two go hand in hand, always together, always reflecting each other. For many individuals, the Law of Attraction may seem to mean one thing–only. They may assume that everyone desires mansions, money, fancy automobiles, fame, family, and worldwide travel. This, however, is a fallacy that’s scripted in many cultures, whether or not it has anything to do with our personal reality.

The script of life–at least for people raised in Western-type cultures is often thus: grade school, high school, date, fall in love, get educated, get married, get a house, and raise a family–all while advancing in an absolutely fabulous career that ultimately leads to retirement near a golf course. This is not explicitly voiced, but the implicit message is often whispered through what we witness. Those of us who don’t live by such a script may feel left out, somehow wrong, or–worse–failures.

Through the Law of Attraction, we create according to our habitual thoughts and feelings. Such will be what moves us forward in our lives. For individuals who do not have the lifestyle described above–and who may be feeling somewhat sad that they don’t–I offer this question: Do you think it’s possible that we never–ever–truly wished to live in the manner I described? Think: Look back to when we were children, daydreaming about our future. Was there ever a mansion in our wildest dreams? Fancy cars? A wife? Husband? Children? The answers may surprise. Or…

Have we always embraced different dreams that are equally valid? To be free of the bondage of trying to live other people’s dreams, which may be neither relevant nor important to us? My point? This: Is it possible that we’re already living the life of our dreams? To realize that–and know it fully–we have only to awaken.

Dare to dream.

Chains of Fate

Elephants

Years ago, I read about a training method that is sometimes used to confine elephants to a certain area. The technique is very simple: When the elephant is a young calf, a trainer pounds a stake into the ground and then attaches a substantial chain to it and a clasp around the elephant’s leg. At first, the elephant–which is naturally curious to explore–attempts to pull against the chain; but when it does, the clasp digs into its leg and inflicts pain. Every time the elephant attempts to free itself, it feels the pain. The elephant ultimately becomes resigned and accepts its fate. It just hurts too much to attempt to break free.

This method proves most useful to the trainer when the elephant reaches maturity. A chain is still placed on the leg of the full-grown elephant–which, at this point, is big enough to easily break it–but the painful old programming keeps the elephant confined. How could this be? Because the elephant just doesn’t realize that it could be free…if it would only try.

You probably realize why I’m sharing this with you. It is, of course, for the parallel lesson that may be applied to humans and the goals we desire to manifest. All of us have endured painful lessons in life. And those lessons–whatever they may be–are still present in our mind. We may be conscious of many of them, but others are functioning at a subconscious level. The point is that they are still there; preventing us from reaching our full potential in much the same way that the chain kept the elephant confined.

Over time, we may have subconsciously resigned ourselves to the notion of a power outside of ourselves. Due to these Chains of Fate, we may rationalize that our dreams are impossible to achieve; that Life just didn’t intend for us to be healthier, wealthier, fall in love, or be more successful. The truth of the matter, however, is that we can reach beyond such limitations if we only realize that we are free! The past can only confine us if we fail to recognize our power!

Our true nature is that of unlimited potential, for we’ve been given the greatest mental faculty on the planet: the ability to think! We may also exercise our power to choose! Through our ability to think and choose, we may determine the degree of success we enjoy. Here–right now, this very minute–is our chance to slip out of any self-imposed Chains of Fate and take that first step toward the dreams we desire to manifest.

Dare to dream.
