Below I am going to share an excerpt from the book “How to pray so that God Listens” that says everything I want to say to you today.
“You see, when we appreciate the things we already have it makes us feel abundance in our life. We feel good, and when we ask for more on that frequency of feeling good, God responds by sending us more things to feel good about. When we kick up a fuss, point fingers at others and throw tantrums, God system responds by sending us more stuff that corresponds to the way we feel. These things that happen to us are supposed to be indicators that tell us that we are not on the frequency of love.
Imagine this: little Tommy goes up to his mommy and hugs her. Then he puts on his best smile and says “Mommy I love you, you are the best mommy in the world”. Mummy looks at him with doting eyes, and then little Tommy says “Mommy may I please have a piece of cake? It looks delicious and I love how it smells, and I’m so happy that you brought it home, I am sure I will love it when I eat it, thank you, thank you, thank you”. Mummy says “Well Tommy, you are such a good little boy, of course you can have some cake”.
Take another example: little Timmy goes up to his mommy and stomps his feet “Why are you so horrible to me? There is cake in the house and you haven’t given me any, why can’t I have cake? I’ve been asking for it for so long. Tommy got cake and I didn’t, he always gets everything he wants, and I’ve been asking for a very long time. I don’t think you love me – my life is miserable”. His mother responds by saying “Timmy, we love you, and you have so many good things already. You should be grateful; there are so many children in the world who would love to be in your shoes. Be good, change your attitude and then you can have all the cake you want”. Timmy throws a tantrum “I never get anything I want”. He sobs and cries, but his mother doesn’t give in. Because if she did, then she would not be fair to all her other children. She has to be consistent in her response in order to be fair to all her children, otherwise she would be playing favourites and her children would never know for sure what to do in order to get cake.
God is like that. God does not play favourites. God’s system is consistent and it is fair. You can count on it to work the same way every time for every one of God’s children.
One thing that is different about God’s love compared to us humans is that God holds love as a constant. It doesn’t matter how we behave, God never stops loving us. As soon as we change our attitude and make peace with where we are and start appreciating all the good in our lives, we start receiving things that we have been wanting. The fact that we feel negative emotions is because we are not on the frequency of love. That feeling is telling us that we need to change our perspective; that we are not thinking thoughts that serve us, that we need to start thinking in a manner that is conducive to feeling good. All we need to do is to get on the frequency of love for things to start changing, and we do that by thinking thoughts that feel better, thoughts that distract us from our unhappiness and direct our attention towards something that feels better.
This is why we see examples of people who never pray and are not at all religious get what they want. You see it is about being happy, not about the ritual of prayer. The happier we are the more we receive and the happier still we become. The unhappier we are the unhappier we get – unless we make a conscious effort to break the cycle. This is why bad things can happen to good people. Because being good in the way society labels people as good or bad is not the basis on which prayers are answered.” End Quote [How to Pray so that God Listens]
