Despite this wide contrast, I came into physical expression feeling eager for the adventure of it all. For I knew something way-back-then that I’m in the process of remembering now: The contrast serves to stimulate my desires and preferences, all of which can be manifested when I get the hang of it. And my every desire and preference (get this!) actually pulls life-force into my body and contributes to the expansion of the Universe. (The mind boggles.)
I have total control over my experience in this varied place because I have total control over my mental focus. And I can usher in the life of my dreams by repeatedly directing my attention away from that which I don’t like and want and toward that which I do like and want.
This is a world of both health and disease, abundance and poverty, connection and loneliness, triumph and tragedy. It serves no purpose to lament the nature of things. But it serves every purpose to direct my focus so that I move towards the health-abundance-connection-triumph category and then model that life for all who watch.
