I have been interested in this quote from the bible for the last 20 years.
Matthew 7-7 “Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you.”
My Interpretation of this quote is this.
Ask with confidence and yet with humility. Recognize that there is an infinite power you are calling upon. Be humbled by its ability and power. Be in awe and wonder.
Seek spiritual application. Recognize that God Force is unconcerned with Ferrari’s and 10 deals next month. God Force Energy wants what is best for all. Seek to find what has been lost. Innocence, happiness, belonging, wholeness, oneness, openness, trust, faith that all is well. When you seek these things, the material stuff works itself out.
Knock with earnestness and perseverance. Go for it with the spirit of humility, sincerity, and perseverance. Be tenacious. Trust that god has got your back. Trust that you would not be asking, if it wasn’t already wanting to be. You are an instrument of the god force. You are the tip of a pen and and god force energy is coming through you and making beautiful art in this world through you.
90% of the goal is achieved in the asking for it.
Let go of your definitions of how it is “Supposed to Be” Consider that you are addicted to the definition that you think makes got goal fulfilled.
