The achievement of anything that you desire must be considered success, whether it is a trophy, money, relationships, or things. But if you will let your standard of success be your achievement of joy, everything else will fall easily into place. For in the finding of joy, you are finding vibrational alignment with the resources of the Universe.
You cannot feel joy while you are focusing upon something not wanted, or the lack of something wanted; therefore, while you are feeling joy, you will never be in the state of contradicted vibration. And only the contradiction in your own thoughts and vibration can keep you from the things you desire.
We are amused as we watch the majority spending most of their life seeking a set of rules against which they can measure their life experience, looking outside of self for those who will tell them what is right or wrong, when all along they have within them a Guidance System that is so sophisticated, so intricate, so precise, and so readily available.
By paying attention to this Emotional Guidance System, and by reaching for the best-feeling thought that you can find right now from wherever you are, you will allow your Broader Perspective to help you move in the direction of the things that you truly want.
As you sift through the magnificent contrast of your physical timespace reality, consciously aware of the way you feel, and deliberately guiding your thoughts toward those that feel better and better, in time you begin to see your life through the eyes of your Broader Inner Being. And as you do so, you feel the satisfaction of being upon the path that you have chosen from your Non-physical perspective when you made the decision to come forth into this wonderful body. For, from your Nonphysical vantage point, you understood the eternally evolving nature of your Being and the promise that this Leading Edge contrasting environment held. You understood the nature of your magnificent guidance system and how, with practice, you could see this world as your Inner Being sees it. You understood the powerful Law of Attraction and the fairness and accuracy with which it responds to the free will of all creators.
By reaching for the best-feeling thought you can find, you reconnect with that perspective, and you shiver with exhilaration as you reconnect with your purpose, with your zest for life -- and with You!
