Everything that I think that I need to do is all only in order to propel me to some place that when I get there, I think I will be happier. So, everything that I am doing, no matter what it is, all of my lists of rights and wrongs… are all about me getting to a manifestation that I believe I will then be happier… So, why don’t I take a short cut and just go get happy?
Excerpted from the workshop in Washington, DC on Saturday, May 1st, 2004 # 417
“The best remedy for those who are afraid, lonely or unhappy is to go outside, somewhere where they can be quiet, alone with the heavens, nature and God. Because only then does one feel that all is as it should be and that God wishes to see people happy, amidst the simple beauty of nature.”
As of late, Abraham has been moving into the “Go General” phase of their teachings. They are moving away from all the processes and into “The Emotional Grid”. The Emotional Scale was the way to go for the longest time and now they have simplified it so more people can understand and access their creative abilities.
“Do you know that if you can find seventeen seconds, seventeen seconds of a thought about something general (like an emotion), that that’s enough to get that grid active enough that it will bring something else to it right now? And that something else that it will bring to it right now is usually another thought that keeps it going longer. And if you can keep it going for another seventeen seconds that’s enough to bring something to it, and it’s usually another thought that will keep it going longer. And if you can keep that going for seventeen seventeen seventeen until you have sixty eight seconds of non-diluted general pure emotional thought you’ve accomplished a grid that will bring you visible evidence. Someone will walk into your space with evidence, we are not kidding you. Something other than just a thought drifting into your mind; something will come as evidence that you have accomplished a point of attraction that is strong enough that the rendezvousing process has already begun.
And when you start deliberately rendezvousing first with your own thoughts, then with conversations with others, then with things like turning the television on at the perfect moment that something about that is said to you, or you open a book or you walk past a newstand and something catches your attention as a headline or deep within an article of something. All kinds of things will begin occurring to you. Happening to you. And because you have deliberately worked on your grid, now as these things come you will not just see them as random, freakish coincidences, a coincidence is a rendezvousing of vibrational latitude, that’s what a coincidence is. It’s a cooperative, commutative incident. Coincidence is the best word we know that is talking about rendezvousing which is caused by law of attraction. But you thought it was random. And for most, it is random because you are not thinking deliberately; you are creating by default. But when you start deliberately, seventeen seconds, not much to ask of yourself, is it? Seventeen seconds, it feels pretty good. And then another and then another and then another

Quote from the AbeQuotes email list.
I love my family dearly. When it comes time for me to meditate, I’d really love some peace and quiet. Three kids, two dogs and a cat sort of make finding a quiet, relaxing spot a little difficult. Luckily we have a spare bedroom that I can shut the door on and pretty much escape.
Right now, there is a bed and a rocking chair to sit in. I’ve learned, long ago, that laying down and meditating just does not work for me. Without a doubt, I end up falling asleep just about every time so sitting in the rocking chair is the option of choice. While it is okay in the comfort level, it isn’t ideal for me.
Hubby and I discussed it and we have ordered a super comfy chair for the room. It is a tad to big for the room, but considering how often we end up having visitors, it is a real waste to not use the room to it’s full potential. All I need to do is get a nice lamp to put on the dresser and I can meditate or read in peace.
Ohhh, I can’t wait until the chair gets here! I am envisioning it easily coming up the stairs and being maneuvered into the room. Gotta pre-pave that positive experience!
