Many years ago, when I was just getting to know Abraham, I went back home to visit my father. My mother had transitioned three years earlier. One day I decided that I wanted to visit her grave. My father and brother said that they would accompany me in the morning. Morning came, and my father, too depressed with the thought decided that he wasn’t going to come with me. For some reason, my brother too had to decline. He did need to go to work though and wanted me to make my visit and return the car to him in time for him to leave the house
It makes me understand why Abraham says that it is easier to work with people who have given up or who are in the state of knowing that there is nothing to lose by trying something different.
Wouldn’t it be a lot easier if we had that attitude of resignation or attitude of trusting Source or God even before we start out on a search for something we desire? Why do we have to do it the hard way first? The answer is we don’t! Abraham says that we can experience passion and joy without having to go through the contrast.
