I came across this wisdom whilst looking for some information in Book 3 of the Conversations with God Trilogy and I thought of how true it is that people still have this paradigm backwards in the New Age. So many people are trying to live their lives the way they always have, and it doesn’t work anymore. Their lives are becoming more difficult and they are becoming more unhappy by the day. We should be asking ourselves the question that Wayne Dyer has been suggesting people ask themselves “How Can I Serve?.” This is an excellent question for you truly are your brother’s keeper. We are responsible for each other and only once we understand this, will we be able to create the New Earth.
This is an extract taken from Book 3 of the Conversations with God trilogy:
The Be-Do-Have Paradigm and how most people have it reversed:
Most people believe if they “have” a thing (more time, money, love – whatever), then they can finally “do” a thing (write a book, take up a hobby, go on vacation, buy a home, undertake a relationship), which will allow them to “be” a thing (happy, peaceful, content, in love). In actuality, they are reversing the Be-D-Have Paradigm. In the Universe as it really is, as opposed to how you think it is, “having-ness”, does not produce “being-ness”, but the other way round.
First you “be” the thing called “happy” (or knowing or wise or compassionate or whatever), then you start “doing” things from this place of being-ness, and soon you discover that what you are doing winds up bringing you the things you have always wanted to “have”.
The way to set this creative process, (and that is what this is… the process of creation) into motion, is to look at what it is you want to “have” right now and then ask yourself what you think you would “be” if you had that, then go straight into being. In this way you reverse the way you have been using the Be-Do-Have paradigm – in actuality, set it right – and work with, rather than against, the creative power of the Universe.
Here is a short way of stating this principle:
In life you do not have to do anything.
It is all a question of what you are being.
To illustrate this, think of a person who just knows that if he could only have a little more time, a little more money, or a little more love, he’d be truly happy.
He does not get the connection between his “not being very happy” right now and his not having the time, money, or love he wants.
That’s right. On the other hand, the person who is “being” happy seems to have time to do everything that’s really important, all the money that’s needed, and enough love to last a lifetime.
He finds he has everything he needs to “be happy” … by “being happy” to begin with!
Exactly. Deciding ahead of time what you choose to be produces that in your experience.
“To be, or not to be. That is the question.”
Precisely. Happiness is a state of mind. And like all states of mind, it reproduces itself in physical form. There’s a statement for a refrigerator magnet: “All states of mind reproduce themselves.”
Thank you Creator!
Recently I am getting from card readings I do for other people and from Doreen Virtue’s weekly card reading that we are basically in a place of magic creation right now. The angels are telling us to decide what it is that will bring us Joy and then to go out and do it! They are also telling us that abundance will flow towards us when are doing what brings us this Joy.
Our biggest enemy is fear and the antidote to fear is Love. You are Be-ings of Pure, unadulterated and Unconditional Divine Love. Be Love, for in essence this is who you are and you cannot Be anything else.
