work for it

What you seek is seeking you.

The universe is a good intentioned energy. It wants to give us what we ask it. It wants to make us happy. But like every good intentioned person it has its flaws. It doesn’t understand our language completely as it is not a human but only energy. It tries really hard to understand us because it means well and it wants to help but semantics is a serious barrier. The responsibility of delivering our wishes in a way that the universe will understand becomes a crucial responsibility which is ours.

Have you ever come across someone who doesn’t speak English? They may not be able to read, speak or even understand anything English related however, there is a high probability that they will be acquainted with certain English words like ‘sorry’, ‘thank you’, ‘okay’ and a few others. The Universe is just the same. It can only understand a few key words that we speak. It can’t understand full sentences or comprehend what we really mean.

‘I don’t want to be heartbroken again’ 
It can’t understand or register anything but the keywords that are ‘heartbroken again’.
How about we say, ‘I want to love and be loved in the truest and purest way possible’.

If we start to monitor how much of what we say every day is self-abusive, toxic and highly negative, we may just shock ourselves.     

Whether you think you can, or you think you can’t–you’re right.
― Henry Ford
