I Want It, But. . .
Many of you, as you set a creation into motion, remove the possibility of its creation at the time you give birth to the creation. For example: “I want a new red car, but it is too expensive.” You see, you have given birth to your new car, on the one hand, and in the same breath you have removed the possibility of receiving it by your statement, “but it is too expensive”. And much of that which you would create is voided in just that way. The statement, “I want a new red car,” is one half of the equation for creation—the wanting or intending part. But, “it is too expensive,” is stifling the allowing. Recognize that you have only to state, “I want a new red car,” and leave it at that—not setting forth your counter-creation, your contradictory-creation, your destructive-creation, your anti-creation or your un-creation. Offer only those thought and words that are in the direction of what you want. Abraham— “A New Beginning I”
On Overwhelm. . .
Overwhelment is about you not being up to speed with what you told the Universe that you want. The Universe is yielding to you. You’re just not ready to receive it right now. — Abraham Excerpted from the workshop in Philadelphia, PA on Monday, May 13th, 2002 #499
