Today’s Prayer to Passage will be from the book ‘Ask and It Is Given: Learning to Manifest Your Desires’ by Esther Hicks and Jerry Hicks, and Wayne W. Dyer.
Today I pray, “Dear God, This belief of asking and having what is asked be given is true. What is a prominent reminder of this? Amen.”
Following my prayer, I held the closed book in my hands and opened it to this passage:
“There is no desire that anyone holds for any other reason than that they believe they will feel better in the achievement of it. Whether it is a material object, a physical state of being, a relationship, a condition, or a circumstance – at the heart of every desire is the desire to feel good. And so, the standard of success in life is not the things or the money – the standard of success is absolutely the amount of joy you feel.”
Perhaps I pray for joy more often than I realize because I am believing, at this time in my life, that God and I are on the same page, so to speak (or in this case, so to type). I am made aware of the things that I must accomplish and complete to feel added joy in the sense of accepting personal responsibility for the amount of joy I feel. And I am continually grateful for all of the daily miracles that bless the blessed bless-adee-dip-dahdoo. Oops. That was too much joy. My apologies. This is something that I cannot put into words because it is as constant as the air I breathe. It wasn’t always this way. So what I did to change and receive more joy more frequently and with more velocity was to let go of a set of items that were not working for me and take responsibility for another set of items that needed to work for me. Joy takes a healthy balance, and manifesting desires makes balancing life completely worthwhile.
