So many people I speak with desire change but really cannot put their finger on exactly what that means and I wanted to share some ideas about this.
First of all the desire for change is Divinely inspired. We are God expressing. I use the word God but you can substitute Universe, Source or whatever word is most comfortable for you. We are the embodiment of the Divine Subconscious mind and the purpose of that mind is expansion. God created us to express through us and therefore become more of God. God is our imagination, our creativity. So whatever your desire is was given to you by God- even if it is just the stirrings of a desire for change.
There is a concept called Divine Dissatisfaction that comes from Catherine Ponder’s book “The Dynamic Laws of Prosperity”. My understanding of the concept, in a nutshell, is that if we are true to the essence of who we are, which is Divine and deserving of every good thing, we should not be satisfied with conditions in our lives that are contrary to our true essence. Because of who we are we are entitled to the best in life and it is available to us if we can accept it. We can only accept it if we feel that we deserve it. If we believe we are entitled to it nothing can stop it.
The difference between Divine Dissatisfaction and struggle is this. Struggle is self-perpetuating. What you struggle against grows and soon you are caught in a negative spin and what you focus on expands. Divine Dissatisfaction motivates you to lift up your eyes from your present circumstances to something better and to start creating it because you deserve it. The present situation is not what you want but it becomes less because you have changed your focus. You can be there while you create something better. Divine Dissatisfaction is the beginning of the creative process that leads you to deciding and imagining what you truly want and getting caught up in the creation of it. Only when you really want something can you get the conviction behind it to create it. If it is a half-hearted desire it won’t get very far. Passion equals fire equals the energy that molds divine substance or the universal subconscious into your desired outcome.
So the very first and most important thing is to honor that desire for change. Put it on a pedestal and refer to it often.
Here is a quote from Abraham that states it perfectly;
You’re always on your way somewhere. The key is: find a way to be happy wherever you now are on your way to where you really want to be. (We’re speaking of the state of being what you want.) It does not matter where you are; where you are is shifting constantly – but you must turn your attention to where you want to go. And that’s the difference between making the best of something and making the worst of something.
Having your attention on where you want to go actually helps you to be where you are because you know that you are a short timer there, you are on your way out.
