There is a difference between WISHING for a thing and being READY to receive it. No one is ready for a thing, until he believes he can acquire it. The state of mind must be BELIEF, not mere hope or wish. Open- mindedness is essential for belief. Closed minds do not inspire faith, courage, and belief.
I saw something that stood out to me this time around in this chapter, the power of belief and I think that belief is a must before we can have a strong desire. After all if we don’t REALLY believe that our objective is possible how can we build a burning desire? If we don’t believe it then it is nothing more than a wish and we are obviously not ready for the thing at that point.
Michael has said that the correct thinking is I will see it when I believe it. The former way I’ll believe it when I see it is plainly doubt and unbelief so how could the universe or God as I see Him give you something you don’t believe? I think that’s where the instructions on visualizing it and seeing it already in your possession, even incorporating all the senses in the visualization is so important in making that visualization real.
Thanks so much to Linda and Michael Dlouhy for making this life changing platform available to all who are open to receiving it. And to all my mastermind partners who share their thoughts with me.
