The Paradox of Activity and ACTION!

“…Have you ever played with magnets? If you have then you may have noticed there is an attractive energy on one side of the magnet that pulls them together. If you let both of the magnets go at the same time you will notice both of the magnets are moving (Action) towards each other. As one magnet moves (taking Action), the other magnet moves (taking Action). 

 

Thus, it is very much like this when you are using the Law of Attraction to manifest something you want. As you move (taking Action) towards what you want, it will move towards you. Once you clearly identify what you want, I encourage you to take small action steps towards what you want and pay attention how what you want moves towards you as you move towards it. It will happen if You Take the Action.” ~Michael Brown 

Most people are under the impression – that ACTION is “Doing stuff” – however, authentic ACTION is a State of BE-ingFrom a Kabbalistic point of view – our very existence is in the World of Action. What we, refer to as ACTION is really just activity; or better yet said: ACTION is the experience of an activity.  You might be thinking, why get into semantics?!  Aren’t you just splitting hairs – activity and action – are really both the same thing..right?! You’re right… (and ‘wrong’)!

Herein, lies the paradox. Paradoxes are statements, that by all appearances, seem to contradict themselves – and yet both are factual. Here’s what I mean: 

Let’s say for example, that you desire and intend, to have a million dollars – and you hope to accumulate this money – within a particular timeframe. So now, you begin to “do stuff” (activity); You visualize, say affirmations, visit million dollar homes, put yourself in “the millionaire feeling” for 12 seconds, go to expensive car lots…etc. You do all this stuff – and then…when that certain time arrives…you realize – that you didn’t acquire the million dollars that you’ve intended and worked for! As matter of fact – your circumstances may have even gotten worse!!!

Why is that?! Because, in order to have a million dollars – you must first BE a millionaire! Again, BE-ING is your ACTION; and if your consciousness is not that of BE-ing a Millionaire – then we WILL NOT – experience having a million dollars – regardless what you do!

One of the parables, that Jesus gave to describe the kingdom, is: The Parable of the Sower. Jesus begins this simple parable, by saying, “a sower [ACTION] went out to sow [ACTIVITY] …”

We get so caught up in the semantics of the seeds, the folds and the terrain – that we overlook the authentic conveyance of this simple principle: A SOWER went out TO SOW…not Reap, Glean, or Till…but, this person only did an activity that was in alignment with his ACTION (Consciousness of Being). In fact, Christ told his disciples – that if they couldn’t grasp the keys (to the kingdom), within the Parable of the Sower – then they would not understand any other parable!!! {See Mark 4:13 and Luke 8:10} The bottom line is this:

“Life is a paradox – we only become that which we already are!”Dwayne B. Neal

Simply put:  SOWERS (ACTION) SOW (ACTIVITY) BECAUSE THAT’S WHAT SOWERS DO! It’s in their very nature; and as a point of principle – we can’t become, until we first BE

Very interest paradox (to say the least) – but, we must keep in mind – that Consciousness (aka ACTION) comes first – and then comes the activity or experience. Just because you’re doing something, doesn’t necessarily mean that you’re taking or in ACTION. As redundant as this sounds, you must first BE before you can DO or HAVE…remember this, — and you will not become like those who are just doing stuff, just for the sake of doing something; [or] as Paul said in 1 Corinthians 9:26 … like those who are just beating against the air!! 

Sometimes our activities (what we call taking action) – can be put in the same category as ‘wishing or hoping’; because what we’re doing doesn’t line up with who we desire to be. Activities can only be ACTION – when these activities are in alignment with the nature of the BEING that we desire! 

To DO this, we just BE! If you can’t “do that” (which includes 99% of the human population) – may I suggest, that you simply affirm, “I AM Prosperity!” Say this over and over until the nature of Prosperity – seeps into your subconscious – and becomes your outward experience. Yeah, there is a bit more to the process of BE-coming – but for now, consistent – repetitive I AM Affirmations will suffice.

Now, it’s also very important to note, that PROSPERITY, is a Definite State of Being (ACTION or CONSCIOUSNESS); and has absolutely nothing, to do with a dollar amount. PROSPERITY is the ACTION – that grows and expands right along with the Universe. This expansion includes riches, abundance, wealth or whatever other State that we desire. Futhermore, we can embody PROSPERITY – just as much as we can – that of a SOWER — neither depended on outside conditions (i.e. seeds, thorns, 30 folds…etc.) to aid or assist in just BEING! This is why in the above example, I suggested that we simply, affirm “I AM PROSPERITY!” Without, a dollar amount or specific time. Again, PROSPERITY represents a definite State of Being – and as long as you’re in this State – you will automatically prosper. It’s the nature of PROSPERITY to PROSPER! Meanwhile, on another hand – you can have millions – and still not prosper – yes, there is a difference.

The great thing about life is – we get to choose whatever State of Being (aka ACTION) that we desire – and as long – as we maintain, the consciousness of this desire – then our activities and experiences will ALWAYS demonstrate this!!! A SOWER went out to SOW…and didn’t concern himself – with trying to acquire the outward effects (the seeds, the folds, the terrain, the million dollars etc.)…he just SOWED and allowed the Universe to take care of the rest!
