As a human race, for long, we have always applauded the traits of grit, determination, effort, hard work, will power, discipline and struggle. These traits go hand in hand with the adage “No pain, No gain”. It’s very common for people to preach the values of hard work especially to kids, thus programming their minds to hook on to this “idea” that anything worth while in life can only be achieved through tremendous hard work and effort. This “programming” is the very reason why a lot of minds feel terrible guilt about relaxing unless it’s “vacation time”.
This programming of valuing “hard work” has become so ingrained in most of our minds that anyone who challenges this conditioning is usually looked upon as someone who is being “impractical”, “dreamer” or “fantasy” oriented. When you are living a life oriented towards effort and hard work, you know in your heart that this not how life is supposed to be – but you carry on because you see no other option. May be not everyone is ready to let go of this age old conditioning of aligning with will-power and hard work, but anyone who really understands the science of creation would know that “effort” is always against life’s movement of creation, and that’s the only reason why it feels like effort. When you let go of “your” personal will/effort to make it happen, you are in a place to allow life to orchestrate the events to make it happen for you in the most effortless manner.
Effortless creation is the new way of living
The transformation of consciousness, that takes place after waking up to your truth, inherently starts rooting you in a place of ease and effortlessness. If you are in the grip of struggle, it just means that you are still in the grip of certain “fears” in your mind that you are not yet willing to give up. All struggle, effort and hard work, arise from a place of lack and fear. By “hard work” I simply mean any action that does not feel like “joy” to your being. If you are enjoying what you are doing, it will never feel like “hard work” to you.
A lot of people talk about how it’s not possible/practical to make money just by doing what you enjoy, but ask yourself if it’s really possible to get to a place of joy by doing something that is not joyful to you? That’s not how creation works. Joy always attracts abundance of every form be it money, relationships or health. Hard work, effort and struggle (anything unjoyful) attracts more of it, so even when you make money through hard work you will still find yourself attracting more struggles with it. You just need to look around you, at humans who are struggling, (or may be at your own life) to know the validity to this truth.
When you are not joyful in the present, it’s not possible to manifest joy in the future – it has to start in the present. It’s not possible for you to experience true abundance when your daily life is focused on hard work and effort. Every moment of your life that you don’t “enjoy” is a moment that goes wasted, and it also creates resistance in you to your life’s movement. So if you desire a life of joy and ease, you need to align with it in your present life instead of “waiting” for it to arrive somehow in the future.
Effort is not how manifestation unfolds
All notions of effort come from the human mind that has been programmed since childhood in the belief in hard work and grit. But once you start understanding the physics of life’s movement, you will know that the very reason an action feels like “effort” is because you are expending energy to go against life’s movement at that moment. Anyone who understands basic physics would know that effort is only needed to oppose a “force” in the opposite direction. So when you are involved in an activity which feels like an effort to you, guess which force you are opposing? – The force of your life’s movement towards your desires.
This is a radically different perspective to what the mind has been used to so long and hence it meets a lot of resistance in the mind. A lot of people might even feel challenged by the very notion of aligning with “effortlessness”. But there is already a lot of evidence across history of the most amazing discoveries and inventions being made by humans who were aligned with their ease and joy. All the inventions that came from a place of struggle, and hard work, have only been counter-productive to humanity in the long run. The best master-pieces come from artists who create in moments of inspiration, with absolute ease of action. Artists who make art using tools of hard work and discipline may still sell their art but it may not have the quality and essence that is present in an art created by someone who manifested it in a space of effortless inspired action.
Allow life’s movement to manifest the reality for you
This is not a philosophical statement, neither is this a spiritual statement, this is a very scientific statement, rooted in actual “physics” of energy movement. Life’s movement is a movement of energy, and it’s instigated from the energy of your desire. Your desire is basically a thought of “creation”, and like all thoughts it has the power to attract onto itself when it’s given attention. The good news is that the very energy of life is focused (giving attention) on your desire because its vibration is “pure positive”. The energy of life is not focused on negative thoughts because it does not match the vibration of “pure positive”, the only source that is focused on negative thoughts is the “human mind” (or the brain in general).
Since life is focused on every pure positive thought that arises from human consciousness, every desire in you is in the focus of life. And this focus creates an “attraction”, whereby the desire (the thought) attracts onto itself and thus condenses into a physical reality. All you need to do is let yourself be pulled in by this force of attraction created by your desires. To be pulled in by this force you need to stop struggling against it, by letting go of any actions that feel “unjoyful” or effortful to your being. The more you stay focused on undertaking joyful action and relaxing, the more it’s an indication that you are going with the pull of your desires. Joy is felt when there is no “resistance” to the pull of your life (created by your desires).
A lot of people may not really understand the “technicalities” of how a creation unfolds in life, and it may require more words to convey the whole process more clearly. However, it’s easy to see that whenever you do something that is not joyful/peaceful, it feels like you are pulling against something – it’s important that you ask yourself what is this force that you are pulling against? Because it’s a real force and it’s very present every moment. I am simply pointing you to the truth that this force is your life’s movement created by your desires, and by opposing it you are resisting your own well-being and abundance. When you let go of your struggle, you will always be pulled in by this strong pull of your life’s movement, which will allow the quick manifestation of your desired realities.
