One of the mistaken certainties or misconceptions most people operate under is that
you get what you want in life by what you DO, or through the actions you take.

Most people believe that the DOING or action part is what makes things happen.

However …

This belief causes you to create in reverse.

Let me explain.

The reason we put a lot of emphasis on action is because we do not understand
the power of our thought.  If you analyse it, 90% of most people’s actions are spent
trying to compensate for inappropriate thought.

The Chinese philosopher Lao-Tsu said that “in the practice of the Way, every day
something is dropped.  Less and less do you need to force things until, finally,
you arrive at non-action.  When nothing is done, nothing is left undone.”

What he is talking about is “doing without doing.”

The problem is that most of us are preoccupied with doing  and unfortunately
most of our doing usually involves struggle.  In the western world we are
conditioned to be action-oriented, so we place a tremendous value on doing.
We are so busy doing that we do not realize that all this ”doingness” causes us
to create in a reverse fashion.

Most of our actions are out of fear, worry or doubt

… because we believe nothing will get done unless we DO something.
In other words, we are trying to FORCE our desire into manifestation through action.

If your decision to DO is dominant, then you will not focus on what you want to BE
in the present moment.  This causes you to miscreate because BEING is the first
and most important step in the creative process. ?
