The other day I was reading on Yahoo that the world’s oldest man, Walter Breuning, had died in Montana at the age of 114. As I was reading the article I thought to myself what it must be like to live for that long, I am nearly 40 years old and I couldn’t imagine being alive for practically another 75 years. We all know life can be challenging at times and I understand that many of us get tired of coping with everything that life throws at us. Is there a secret to living a long and happy life? Or are we merely at the mercy of the world, having to accept whatever life hands us? Do we have the power to change the course of our lives? In the article there was a list of Mr. Breuning’s secrets to a long life, one in particular caught my attention and I think it applies to comprehending the ability to be in control of your future.
Embrace change, even when the change slaps you in the face. (“Every change is good.”) Walter Breuning
If you are a somewhat perplexed of how embracing change can help your ability of manifestation, don’t worry I was a little puzzled as well. However, I remembered a couple of videos I had watched a few weeks ago of Bashar. If you are not familiar with who or what Bashar is I recommend you check out the official site and read the about page. I myself have only recently discovered Bashar so I can’t speak with authority about how genuine all the information coming from this individual is. But for the purpose of this post I am only concerned with statements made about manifesting which I believe are accurate. I would like to share a few quotes below, from Bashar, that I pulled from the videos I watched and then I will elaborate further.
- The key to manifestation is zero expectation that it must turn out the way you think it should.
- Trusting that what is happening is happening for a reason.
- The more you enjoy the process itself the faster it will go that’s the paradox…
- Because you are willing to accept that everything that is happening is necessary as a part of the piece….as something that will increase your understanding of who and what you are as a co-creator; if you look at it that way and stay in that energy believe me, very quickly, you will explode in many different directions and your reality will explode toward you with many different things that will support you.
When we attempt to manifest change into our lives we must first understand that we should not expect a certain outcome, rather we should trust that the outcome will bring us the feelings we sought to begin with. For example, if you are trying to manifest your dream home don’t have precise expectations about the home or how it will happen, but focus on how you would feel if your manifestation had already happened. Ultimately, the physical manifestation isn’t what is important, the feelings you get from the acquisition of that manifestation is what you desire. Suppose that owning your dream home made you feel happy, secure, satisfied, blessed, grateful and content, would you still want that dream home if it did not bring you those feelings? What if those feelings could be achieved without obtaining your dream home, would you still focus your energy trying to get it? When you are trying to manifest change into your life ask yourself what it really is you are trying to accomplish, aren’t we all ultimately trying to change how we feel about ourselves and the circumstances that encompass our lives? “The key to manifestation is zero expectation that it must turn out the way you think it should.”
Walter Breuning said, “Embrace change, even when the change slaps you in the face (Every change is good.)” His advice helps us to fully recognize that the situations we face within our lives are happening for a reason. I hope everyone reading this can appreciate that no matter what point you are at in your life, good or bad, you got there by the choices you made. Furthermore, instead of allowing emotions such as stress and anxiety to drain your energy because of your present state of affairs you should embrace the process knowing that what is happening is just a necessary part of the elaborate puzzle. Once you recognize, accept and embrace your current situation, then and only then, will you begin to become a co-creator with the Infinite and start to unlock the power of manifestation.
