[success] The universe moves with motiveless necessity as it has no motive of its own. Rather, it moves under the necessity of manifesting the arrangements of the minds of men. ~ Neville.[/success]

Why is this important?

Because everything, even the chaos of being between a gazillion versions of a desire is being made manifest as we speak – no wonder so many lead a chaotic or bumpy life, jumping around from wanting this for five minutes, then that for the next and yet totally unable to say yes to anything.

As five year old L.J  said to me when I was dithering over eating some birthday cake...just eat it.  She was right…so I did…gluten and all…and you know what, it was fine.  I could have easily said, I don’t think so and put an end to the dithering just as quickly, but the cake tasted sooo good.  So here I was happy to follow the directions of a five year old!

Talking to someone yesterday they made the point that for many, not being able to choose a desire is a big deal.

What?? You can even procrastinate on desires?  Arghh don’t tell me that, I’m already a recovering procrastinator, I don’t need to hear about more things I could be procrastinating about…it might mean I’ve missed out on some great procrastination time!  Oh wait…I’d have been manifesting more chaos in my world, probably not such a good thing.  Translation…stick with the programme Elle.

Eventually, I said to my friend, well just choose something.  Sounds a bit like that five year old doesn’t it?  How come they’re so clear about stuff?

Forget whether you can get it, forget that you need to think about something more perfect, forget all of it.  It doesn’t matter two hoots.  Just choose something…anything and begin to imagine having it, to expect you’ll get it, know you got it.  Then when it arrives, should it be less than perfect, tweak it.

So what I’m saying is make sure you’re choosing something, always, about everything, otherwise its just the dregs of old messy stuff that’s going to show up.  Because universally speaking our ideas, thoughts and feelings are always being manifested.

Isn’t it time to see our life, not as it currently is, but as a vision of all that we deem ideal, our very own image of perfection, buried underneath all the chaos of our thinking – waiting for us to show up and participate?  Waiting for us to decide.  If it sounds simple, it’s because it really is…try thinking like a five year old.

Encourage one another.

Love Elle.

  1. I love this post! Just the other day I was talking to a friend about some man-trouble and I discovered that I can’t find the perfect man for me because I can’t even picture what that would look like! No wonder I’m not getting it! This week I’m going to put some energy into choosing what I want and imagining myself having it.

      Great idea Katrina. Let us know how it works out for you. I’ll rephrase…when it works out for you…consciousness never gets it wrong. 🙂

  2. Great post Elle. I can wallow in indecision as well. Sometimes it’s best to make the decision and move. Thanks for sharing.

      You’re so right Cathy – as Nike and a five year old said – just do it.

  3. 5-year olds have the clearest minds, Elle. In India, Hindus believe that until the age of 5, children are equal to God. 😀 (Mothers differ – they think children are Gods no matter how old they are).

    Children can teach us many things – I learn from my son all the time. More than anything else, I love the logic. Their minds are not cluttered. It is only as we grow up we pick up lots of baggage. :-)We have the “what if” worry they don’t waste time with.

    I loved this short sweet post. It is packed with wisdom!

    Many hugs to you! Love, Vidya

      I love that Vidya – children being equal to God. I can understand why, they have such purity about them, even when having a tantrum! Thank you for your as always kind words.

    Living without desires to fulfill, really isn’t living.
    It’s merely existing.
    And we don’t envision anyone in that state of consciousness.
    Another great article, thank you !
    Write on, Elle !

    • Elle

      Thank you Joseph, I like that, we don’t envision anyone in that state. Wise words as always. 🙂

  5. Elle,
    Even when we don’t decide we’re deciding. The bigger the decision…sometimes the more I delay. Augh.
    Thanks for the nice comment. Words can describe the event but I tried. I just decided what I’d do with my $100.

      Tess, I’m reminded of some country saying someone told me when I first came to the States, if you have many frogs to eat, eat the big one first. It just makes me laugh when I think of it.

      And sometimes delaying a decision can really pay off. I just have to make sure I’m not back in my procrastination mode!

  6. I so needed this today! Thank you Elle! I’ve been wallowing in how much I don’t like how things are in an aspect of my life. I know I need to focus on what I want but I’ve been sliding backwards (lack of sleep doesn’t help). After reading this I finally got the feeling of how good it feels to let go of what I don’t want and choose, see and feel what I do want.

    Right on time! Thanks so much!!

    • Elle

      It’s so true Paige that lack of sleep can become ‘girl interruptus’ thing. But I’ve learned to keep on approving of myself, regardless. Even though there are times when it takes a minute or two to remember that. 🙂
