Manifesting our desired outcome is about recognizing a desire, setting an intention, then working toward the established goal. Throughout this process the true source of power is ourselves.
The desire realized is our own desire. We are the ones setting the intention for ourselves, and we are taking the action required to achieve our goal. Therefore, we are always in control and continually have total control over our journey.
At times circumstances may appear to be outside our purview. We may feel that external events have inserted themselves into our lives, leaving us with few to no options available to us. Yet there is never a time we are left without options. The truth is that the options to us may change and shift based on circumstances, but we still have choices. Nothing happens to us; rather, things happen, then we choose how to respond to the events that have occurred.
As long as our goals remain consistent with our desire, they are attainable. When a massive boulder lands on our path, it only serves as a block. It does not in and of itself demolish the goal. We may be able to move the boulder, climb over it, circumnavigate the boulder… there are always several options available to us as to how to move forward. The boulder has not taken away our ability to choose, it has only introduced a new set of choices we need to make in order to get past it and continue on our journey.
The only true impediment to any goal is when we make the choice to no longer pursue the goal. It is not external factors that have forced this choice upon us, it is us changing our intention, shifting our desire away from the one we once held. In that moment, we are employing our power to change our destiny to match a different desire, but the power continues to be, as it always has been, in our hands.
