Maybe we’re SUPPOSED to get frustrated.

Abraham says the reason we feel negative emotion is because there is a gap between who we really are and where we are now. That has to mean that we subconsciously feel a disconnection. And if that’s the case, then it’s only natural for frustration to occur when things don’t happen at the snap of a finger. We have a REASON – maybe even a RIGHT – to expect it.

You cannot have a happy ending to an unhappy journey

If we go through life focused on the negative, using every opportunity to point out the ugly and the unfortunate and the unjust things in this world (all of which are personal judgements, by the way), we’re going to end our lives unhappy, unhealthy, and full of resentment and fear.

Let the experiments begin!

Just reading the introductory sections of this book gave me goosebumps – I’m connecting to it like I haven’t connected to a book in a long time – and it’s got me excited to see the results.

Fear – You asked for it

Did you know that Al Capone died of syphilis because he was afraid of needles?

You don’t get a better Corvette for suffering

If someone has spent 14 years walking to work, and has developed a desire to drive a new Corvette, is their desire any more valid than yours, which came forth when you watched a great commercial about the latest model? It’s the same desire.

That’s all, Folks!

If you understand that your point of attraction is going to be affected by whatever you give your attention to, you then have to decide what kinds of things to give your attention to. The choice is yours, and so is the responsibility for the consequences of that choice.

WHINING IS A VERY GOOD THING!

“The entire Universe is set up to produce whining within you! You cannot squelch whining. You are born whiners. Whining is a good thing. Write that down in big letters: WHINING IS A VERY GOOD THING!”

Line up the Energy first

I used to play tennis fairly regularly with a friend of mine. He’s taller, has a longer reach, and (especially today) has more physical stamina than I have. But more importantly, he’s got the mental ability to focus on a goal without distraction. Combine that with his competitive drive, and he’s hard to beat. In fact, I never once did it! I believe that I actually have more talent on the tennis court, and that he’s not THAT much better an athlete than I, but I don’t have the sheer determination to win that he does. I didn’t take the time to see myself beating him before we played, and it never happened…

OMG! I think it’s working!

“What is meditation supposed to accomplish?” I mean aside from lowering your blood pressure, helping you to relax, and the sizeable list of other physical benefits. These things are reason enough to do it, but they’re not spiritual in nature. Rather, they’re wonderful side effects. How does meditation help someone along their path?

Mahalia Michaels and the Not-So-Strange Coincidence

…Luckily, she was a pretty good speaker, physically attractive (OK, truth time – she’s pretty sexy), and a core component of what she was talking about was near and dear to every man’s heart – sexuality and sensuality. So, we stayed and listened…

Gooooooooooooals!!!!!!!!!

The kinds of goals Abraham is talking about here are those which we have more of a connection to. They’re the kinds of desires that make you want to get up in the morning; that make you willing to do things that are new, different, more. Things you hadn’t thought of before. Things you previously would have said you couldn’t or wouldn’t ever do. They give you energy by thinking about them.

The Universe is only answering YOUR vibration

…She wanted to live a life of fun and freedom and financial independence and health and happiness… But she wasn’t willing to take responsibility for it. She died broke, alone, mostly without friends, and convinced that she was the butt of the Universe’s jokes.
