Lately I am realizing many things I want are simply coming to me without any direct current effort or push on my part. Isn’t that awesome! Wouldn’t you want your life to be such that you are simply in “receiving” mode for all the beautiful aspects you want in your life! Seeing this magic happen, I started thinking – is this luck or did I do something to start this process and deserve this? How can I continue this as a way of life?
I started realizing that the things coming to me were in some form or other simply an “Amplified Boomerang back” of what I had sent out in the world in the past. I could see the big picture level direct connection between quality of my energy and my actions in the past to my today’s blessings and quality of life.
Awhile back I started getting out of my own self and started focusing on people and seeding, building, and nurturing relationships. For some reason, I did not care to think “why and what I will get in return”. Connecting, relating and being helpful was joyful enough in the moments there was no need for additional future payoff.
There was no thought that a person could end up being “business associate”, “girlfriend”, or “hangout buddy”… the beauty was in just going with a flow. With letting whatever made sense emerge. This was very powerful as it led to a naturalness in the relating that allowed whatever was best in the big scheme of picture for both parties happen.
Power of Relationships
The ‘achievement’ oriented world has taught us how to “chase things” in life, how to achieve by our efforts, by showing how competent and deserving we are. Everyday we try hard to “impress others” with OUR charisma, with OUR knowledge, with our strength and subtly or not so subtly our power.
In all this achievement we do realize that at the root of all we receive is what we give in our relationships. That the best way to attract positive things our lives is to “live” those first by giving that kind of love and energy to everything we do and with everyone we relate with despite the current circumstances and state of others.
The power of relationships comes from power of feelings. Feelings are stronger than facts and memory. Facts can be debated, feelings are each persons truth – whether we agree with it or not. Feelings are the over-arching trust that propels people towards others. Feelings are powerful and they cross boundaries of competence and ability of other person. If we feel good about someone – we feel they can do almost anything.
Focus your time and energy constantly on building quality relationships and rest all will fall in place automatically.
People will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel. – Maya Angelou
