It’s curious, by wanting something — anything — we subtly push it away from us. A potential husband, wife, weightlifting goal, creative ambition, love, forgiveness, acceptance, etc.
To open the door to what we want, we have to learn to not want it.
This doesn’t mean develop an aversion. It means let go of your attachment to it. Become internally OK with not having it.
Then, funnily enough, you’ll get what you want.
The attachment (fear of not getting what you want) declares neediness. It’s a statement that we believe in scarcity and lack faith. So, naturally, these do not lend well to positive creative power.
