“Why you want something
defines the essence of the
what you want."
— Abraham, Esther Hicks
What is the value of continually learning? To find those one-liners that light up my brain! Those that cause a connection, an “ah-ha" moment, an awakening, all of which equals a deeper and wider understanding of something I already knew.
Why did the quote above leap off the page for me? Because of this part of the quote, “defines the essence of the what you want." Why defines the what. I thought, of course! That’s why the why is so important. I thought, of course! That’s why the how is not important. It is because the why is what defines the what. The how doesn’t define the what, but the why does. I thought, Wow! Isn’t that cool? Isn’t that powerful? It’s flat amazing!
So, I’ll share the whole quote from which I pulled the short quote above:
“Why you want something defines the essence of the what you want, and the Universe always delivers to you the vibrational essence of your desire. . . . So, when you think about why you want something, you usually soften resistance; but when you think about when it will come to you or how it will come or who will help it to come, you often add resistance, especially if you do not already know the answers to those questions."
Of course, most of the time we haven’t got a clue about the answers to the questions about when, how, or who, and that naturally causes concern, which is another word for resistance, and then it may even cause worry, which is much stronger resistance. BUT, when we focus on why we want something, that should release any and all resistance. Decide what we want and then simply focus on why we want it, which will cause us to imagine it being here already and how that will feel. Then the only thing left is to simply let go and let God.
Why do I want this that I want?
