A man buys a brand new Chevrolet. He is absolutely and positively thrilled and excited. Totally blissful. 100% satisfied. It’s his first new car. The first car that he can think of as being reliable transportation. Life is good. Life is perfect. It’s all good!
A week later his brother-in-law stops by on his way home from the Mercedes dealership to show his beautiful new car, just wanting to share his joy with family. By the time the brother-in-law leaves the new Chevy owner is no longer a happy man. He went from being a Chevy owner to not being a Mercedes owner. The thrill is gone. Totally.
What has changed? Nothing. Nothing in the real world, that is. He still has his beautiful new Chevy. He still has the car that he was in rapturous love with before the other man arrived. All that changed was what’s in his head. His attitude. Reality has been perverted by, infected with perspective. He went from being a man who proudly and joyously owned a Chevy (reality) to a man who did not own a Mercedes-Benz (perspective).
Can you see the death here? A little bit of death. He went from being to not being. Isn’t that what death is? Not being? He went from the joy of being a Chevy owner to the frustration and sadness of not being a Mercedes owner. He went from being to not being. A small death. With many more added day by day year after year all accumulating and adding up to actual death.
Happiness comes from seeing the word as it really is. Power comes from seeing things as they really are. Dissatisfaction, disappointment, frustration, sadness and unhappiness come from perspective and comparison. What is is the way it really is. Perspective introduces the negative, the not. And perspective is all about the ego. Perspective is the way I see things.
We think about our Chevy man and find him foolish, silly, immature, sad, ungrateful, whatever. Fact is, he is us. You live your life ignoring the reality of your “Chevy’s” and being driven by the darkness and negativity of your mind’s creation. Chevy man is you.
Success is a getting it right. Right? Getting it right is a function of seeing the world as it really is. What is is the way it really is. And what is does not and cannot include what isn’t. There is no isn’t in the is. There is no isn’t in the universe. But only in the mind. Isn’t can only and does only exist in the ego’s perception. The universe is the totality of is. All that is is the universe. The universe is all that exists. That includes a whole lot. A whole, whole lot. But in that is, there is no isn’t. No room for that baby at the inn of the universe.
The universe is all being and having and doing. There is no room in the universe for not being, not having, not doing. There is no place in the universe for not being a Mercedes owner. One can be either be in flow with the universe or in opposition to the universe. In sync or out of sync. Being in sync is success, progress, growth, health and prosperity. Being in sync with the universe is being in flow with the mighty, infinite and infinitely abundant universe. Being out of sync and in opposition is insanity. You can be in opposition to all kinds of powerful entities and still prevail and come out of head. Being in opposition to the universe itself is always a losing proposition. It is anti-life, anti-success, anti-prosperity, anti-abundance, anti-happiness. Being in opposition to the universe is anti-YOU! Knock it off.
It is almost a cliche that the positive is power. That the positive is success. It is the root and starting point of success, growth, happiness and prosperity. The negative is failure, frustration and stagnation. The positive is life and negative is darkness and death. Positive is the way of the winner. Positive is the way of the champ. Negative is the way of the “loser”, the frustrated, the disappointed. Why? WHY?!?! Because positive is in harmony with the universe. Positive is in sync with the universe. Positive is in agreement with the universe. Negative is at war with the infinite and mighty universe.
Did you ever wish for a really powerful partner, mentor, or sugar daddy? Somebody that would ease things for you, open doors, make things happen. How about partnering with the universe? Wow!! No richer, wiser or more powerful ally is to be found. That is your choice every moment of the day.
SUCCESS IS A FUNCTION OF MESHING WITH THE UNIVERSE. SUCCESS HAPPENS WHEN WE ARE IN SYNC WITH THE IS OF REALITY, THE IS-NESS OF THE UNIVERSE.
Observation and appreciation of the is is success and flow. Ego’s judgment of isn’t is death. A little at a time.
