The Chinese philosopher (604 BC – 531 BC) is credited with saying: “A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.” This is a great quote for helping you to allow everything you want through the Law of Attraction. I know that I am ready to ramp up my allowing in the new year, and today I took a nice long gratitude walk with my two dogs along the beach and through the marina. It was fun and relaxing, and I had a good chance to think about the new year, what I want, and how I am going to get there. The problem with defining what you want, at least for me, is that I tend to shoot for the stars and ask for things that are a stretch from my present vantage point of reality. It feels so good to visualize it, and to imagine having it now. However, when the visualization is done it is so easy to doubt the asking and fall into a “ya, right, like that’s really going to happen” pit.

When I felt this less-allowing vibration begin to soil the fun of my new year’s visualizations, I suddenly became inspired by Lao tzu’s quotation. It isn’t my job to manifest everything today. In fact, trying to manifest it immediately will only make me more aware of the absence of what I am creating. Instead, I affirmed that my gratitude walk was all I needed to do today. My job was to define, enjoy, visualize, savor, and be. My steps today are lining me up with everything I am asking for. I am right where I am supposed to be right now. I am well on the way on my thousand-mile journey, and all is well. Loving the journey will make it more fun, and before I know it, I’ll be there…ready for another thousand-mile journey…and then another one…and then another. There is no there to get to. I am just totally grateful and appreciative to be taking steps forward in joy and love. Enjoy this most amazing day!  Chris-GP
