When we ask God for something – ask the Universe for something, whether we speak the words out loud or not, our deepest desires plant the energy, create the movement, open the doors, direct the navigational system so that we zoom in on our desires in such a profound way that our desires begin seeking us.
But you see, the path is not straight. Life is not linear. Sometimes we are directed to where we don’t want to go to know where we need to be.
Sometimes a silent response says more than a vocal one. Sometimes we are directed to chaos in order to find order. Sometimes we cannot see the good that is everywhere present. Sometimes what someone else means for evil, God means for good. Sometimes the obstacles we face are what we need to teach us how to move in the right direction. Sometimes no way becomes the way.
Why? Because God is not just God above, or God as judge, or God as answer, or even simply God as love. God is the transformational energy that is not only constantly creating good as us, but God is the force that pushes us to the finished line of its attainment. God is manifesting power and the mere presence of God is the only thing that we need to manifest our desires.
Where is that presence? Neither left nor right Jesus teaches in Luke 17:21. The Kingdom and all that we need is within, is part of every bone, cell, muscle, organ and fiber; is the air we breathe and the space we take up; is in the words we speak and the thoughts we think.
As Paul said in Philippians 3: 12-14, “Not that I have already obtained all this, or have already been made perfect, but I press on to take hold of that for which Christ Jesus took hold of me. Brothers, I do not consider myself yet to have taken hold of it. But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus.”
Our desires you see are from the same spiritual ethers that give us life; they are God’s good seeking us. They awaken us, and they give energy and power and strength to move throughout the universe as the seeds of God that are here to take shape.
We are part of the creative evolution of the universe, called here to not only be the manifestation of what we perceive as good but to be the continuous unfoldment of good for others. We are the trajectory of God’s creation, and the good that we long for – the things and the people and the desires that we have – are here because the Universe needs us to bring them forth.
God doesn’t want us to be deprived of anything. Our goals are not our own, they are God’s vision of good for us. Our dreams are not our own, they are God’s good transforming us. Even our victory — the prize that we are reaching for — is not our own; it is part of the universal fabric that nurtures God’s soul as us.
The prophet Malachi says God will open the windows of heaven and pour out such blessing that there will not be room enough to receive it. The good that we express from is so phenomenal that it gave birth to us. Our entire movement through this universe that we call life is to bring us closer to the divine will of God.
Love is the highest name of God. Why wouldn’t the universe manifest the love that is so profoundly expressed as us? The only thing standing between us and the love that we are – is our disbelief. So let’s stop, right here and right now – and open our eyes to see the Kingdom of God, so that we know it for ourselves.
Close your eyes for a minute and see what is in your Kingdom of God. You don’t have to worry about anybody else’s Kingdom, this is the universe of your good. This is the divine idea that God has birthed as you. This is the vision that you were called to have. This is the dream that created you. This is the endless possibility that life is breathing into your veins.
I want you to be a witness here and now: What does your Kingdom of God look like? What are the colors? What is present? What do you see in this dimension — this space beyond length and height and depth? How do you feel when you know that nothing and no one prevents you from attaining your good?
How do you feel knowing that not only do you desire and wish for and long for certain things but that they desire, wish for and long for you? Your good is God seeking you.
Just as much as you want the transformation, your good wants to see it take shape.
What is it that you want to see take shape? Don’t limit yourself. God will surpass our greatest dreams. What is in your vortex of infinite ideas? Don’t put any restrictions on it.
Allow yourself to BE One with its energy and its purpose and nonresistant flow of all that is, and ever will be. All you have to do is claim your good, and God will do the rest.
