Well, I thought I was going to write a nice new blog post today as an update to the challenge, since this is day #30. But it’s not feeling natural and I know better than to push my way through. So, you get this instead.
I’m sure there will be a comprehensive update at some point. Just not today.
Actually this is a perfect example of what I wanted to discuss.
Because, I realized something over the last week or two which has totally changed my outlook on how I use the LOA. And no I’m not hyperbolizing, really.
A bit of a story. I just got put on a project at work which literally couldn’t be more perfect for me, in every way.
It uses a framework that I’ve literally dreamt of working on in a professional capacity for over a decade. It’s working with technology that I consider my strongpoint as a programmer. And it doesn’t even require a web interface, which as a blind programmer, is a huge relief since I can’t design.
In short, every single aspect feels custom-made to match my preferences.
And yet not once did I visualize or intend to manifest any part of this. It was all spontaneous. The Universe took note of my preferences, over literally 13 or so years, and managed to put them together in such a perfect way that I couldn’t have even imagined myself.
And why did this happen now, of all times?
That’s easy. Because I’ve held a general intention over the last two months to focus on what was going well with my job. And as I did that, the momentum grew, and I got more to enjoy.
So I realized the simple power of just looking at what is going well. When we do that, things can’t help but to get even better. What you give your focus to, expands.
We don’t need to ask really hard for what we want. We don’t need to visualize incessantly or say a lot of affirmations. The very first time you took note of something you wanted, the Universe noticed, and is just waiting for an opportunity to give it to you, in a way you can likely not imagine.
Last week I had a moment where I went to open up my code editor to do some programming. And I just had such a perfect thought that stopped me in my tracks: “This is like a playground.”
Meaning, when I went into my code editor and started to “work”, it felt so much more like play, like creation, like fun, that it felt like a playground.
That was partly the inspiration for naming the domain where our courses live playground.playofinfinity.org.
And then I thought, “Why shouldn’t everything in life feel this way?”
And I realized in that moment that there is no reason life shouldn’t feel that way all the time.
So I set another intention to do my best to never do anything that doesn’t bring me joy. I have so many things now that do bring me joy: why would I waste time on something that doesn’t?
I haven’t been perfect at it. But I’ve noticed that when I go against this intention, I suffer. When I do something because I feel like I “should”, and not because it brings me joy, things don’t go well, or at least as well as they could have.
So no, writing that blog post was not bringing me joy, even though it made sense to do it. But writing this post did, because I wanted to share the realizations I’ve been having around all of this.
Life should be a playground. If it’s not, then there’s something begging to be looked at. Respect yourself enough to never do what doesn’t bring you joy.
You know what else brought me joy? To recently rewrite my coaching page to be more in line with my new focus with The Play of Infinity. It had been a while and was still a remnant from Dark Ascent.
So, if you’d like to make progress towards manifesting your desires, now’s a great time to sign up for one-on-one coaching with me. I’d be happy to work with you towards whatever goals you have.
