What If...

What if wishes, hopes, and dreams could come true? What wishes would you make for yourself?
What would fulfill your needs at the deepest, most basic level? What would allow your soul to complete its destiny?


The ancient Vedic texts known as the Upanishads declare, “You are what your deepest desire is.
As is your desire, so is your intention. As is your intention, so is your will. As is your will, so is your deed.
As is your deed, so is your destiny.” Our destiny ultimately comes from the deepest level of desire and also
from the deepest level of intention. The two are intimately linked to each other.


What is hope? Most people say it’s a thought of something that you want to accomplish in your life or that you
want for yourself.
But really it is more than that. Hope is a way of fulfilling a certain need that you have,
whether that need is for material things, for a relationship, for spiritual fulfillment, or for love. 
Hope is a thought, a feeling, a state of mind that will help you fulfill a need.


Seen this way, our hopes revolve around the goal of being happy or fulfilled.
First, if we are asked what we want, we might say, “I want more money,” or “I want to be healthy.”
Then if we are asked why we want that, we may say something like,
“Well, so I’ll be able to spend more time with my children.”
If we are asked why we want to spend more time with our children, we might say, “Because then I’ll be happy.”

So we can see that the ultimate goal of all goals is a fulfillment at the spiritual level that we call happiness or joy or love.


When hope is repeated, that creates habit. The more hope is repeated, the more likely it is that the universal
consciousness will create the same pattern and manifest the intention in the physical world.
If you really want to break out of the mundane, you must learn to think and dream the impossible.
Only with repeated thoughts can the impossible be made possible through your hopes, intentions, and desires.


The great poet Alfred, Lord Tennyson, once said, “More things are wrought by prayer than this world dreams of.”
But it’s not prayer if the hopes and intentions are forced; it’s finesse, timing, surrender, gratitude, trust, love,
and compassion that allow your desires to manifest.


While interpretation, memory, and habit create the illusion of familiarity or sameness, of our continuation
from minute to minute, in reality, there are infinite possibilities at our core,
infinite possibilities that need only hope to make them real.


For every hope, wish, and intention you have, ask yourself, “How would this serve me
and how would it serve everybody I come into contact with?”
And if the answer is that it will create true joy and fulfillment in me and all those affected by my actions,
then my intention, together with surrender, orchestrates its own fulfillment.

Love,
