“People will say, “Well, I have to work on my goals,” or, “I have to work on my visualization.” And we want you to think more about holding the vision because it is pleasurable to hold the vision, not because you’re trying to make the vision work in order to get to some place that you’re not now standing. “How much should I work?” We would say, work in the sense of joyously moving forward.” Abraham [Excerpted from North Los Angeles, CA on 8/13/01]
If we feel we have to “work” on our spirituality or on our journey into greater understanding of our greater good, we need to re-think the process as it shouldn’t be work. It is “work” to move away from our innate good, or to create a world that is full of challenge and hardship, sickness and lack. That was/is work! Letting the choices go that brought and now stabilize within us these unhappy moments isn’t work. It is a gentle process of realigning our mind within our oneness with all that is God…of all that is Good. This is done by establishing specific times when we pull away from the outer world and have moments to get quiet and become centered in God. Often it is called meditation or simply allowing the mind to become still and simply then allowing the goodness that is God to become obvious. If it is work, we are going about it in a manner that is not necessary or required. Abraham calls it a joyous movement forward as we return in our awareness to the Truth that is at the center of our being.
