“Ask and It Is Given”

December 20th, 2006 Leave a comment Go to comments

The title of the book I just started reading.  It was knocked off the shelf by the kitten that I’m minding while I housesit.  It’s quite powerful!  If you ever see the title or would like to access spiritual guidance in clear language, I recommend looking it up.  Authorship on it is uniquely defined (you’ll see what I mean if you read the introduction) but the title of it should come up in a search.  Also try Jerry and Esther Hicks.  It has a foreward note by Dr. Wayne W. Dyer who wrote The Power of Intention.

What shall you ask for this Christmas?  What shall you give?  Questions I ask each year and although each year begins with satisfying the expectations of buying ‘things’ as gifts for family and friends, I have the distinct challenge and blessing of not having the resources to give in that way this year.  So how shall I gift this year?

Well, to start, I’ve taken care of myself in way so that others need not worry about my well-being.  The gift of “peace of mind” that your friend, your sister, your daughter, your colleague, Janice, is not out on the street on Christmas.  Moreover, she is in fact happy, even though she isn’t sharing the holidays in Canada.

The other gift is this quote from this book that, honest to goodness, I “coincidentally” or “randomly” opened up to :

    Your Greatest Gift to Give Is Your Happiness

The greatest gift that you could ever give to another is your own happiness, for when you are in a state of joy, happiness, or appreciation, you are fully connected to the Stream of pure, positive Source Energy that is truly who you-are.  And when you are in that state of connection, anything or anyone that you are holding as your object of attention benefits from your attention.

I shall hold you in my happiness this Christmas Eve.  And if you don’t observe Christmas, let it be that on Dec. 24th, I’ll send you love and happiness for no apparent labelled reason.

The other gift I give to to tell all my family and friends that I have already received your gifts.  Send nothing but your expressions of happiness that you are ALIVE.  It’s a big thing to ask for so if you can’t make it happen, I’ll understand.
And this is my favourite so far from this book:

If your goal is to, finally, once and for all, achieve all that you desire, you will find yourself unable to ever fulfill that goal, for the expanding nature of this Universe defies that idea….out of your awareness will always be born another asking, and each asking always summons another answering.  Your eternal nature is one of expansion – and in that expansion is the potential for unspeakable joy.

A big sigh of relief for the perfectionist and overachiever who does in order to check the “to do’s” off the list.  It is an encouraging reminder to me that I will never get where I am going, so I’d better enjoy the journey; because where I’m going is where I AM.
