Do We Need to Understand Life’s Software?

At the moment, I am writing a blog entry.  My goal is to post this entry and release it to the web.

It is actually a process of manifestation.  I have a vision for the blog post and a process for that to happen.  But I don’t know how WordPress converts my typed words into 1’s and 0’s, then assembles them into packages of information, transmitting them through silicon and copper pathways, though air ways at the speed of light to receivers all over the world.

Then, those receivers taken those 1’s and 0’s and transform them into words once more that can be understood by human eyes.

I have no idea how to do this!

Oh, no!  What a nightmare!

But then,  all I really have to do is press a button and the software takes care of it all without any help from me or any other human.

So why do I try to make manifestation happen?

If I “work” at it, do I make electrons move faster?  Do I stack molecules more efficiently?  Can I push the Software of the Universe to move quicker? Can I make someone from Ukraine read my post?

Or do I slow it down by inputting conflicting messages? (It’s working….no, it’s not…wait…yes, it is…no…wait)

Since, the Software is going to give me my garbage back anyway,  why not go along for the ride and enjoy the ups and downs, left and right turns, slow and fast curves.

The Universe is God’s computer and gives us exactly what we ask for.  Garbage in – garbage out.  Happy in – happy out. 

It’s more fun to let go, KNOWING  that life will take us to our destination while giving us a thrill along the way.

An Old Law of Attraction Story – The Wish Fulfilling Tree

Even before the Law of Attraction became popular, I was aware of its existence as every religion I studied stated the law in one way or another.

But, I especially loved it when the law was illustrated through a story.

There is a story from either Hindu or Buddhist lore (not really sure which) about the Wish Fulfilling Tree.  This tree is supposed to indiscrimately grant every wish expressed by anyone underneath its branches.  It is said that our world is the Wish Fulfilling Tree, granting every wish that we dwell upon. 

The story, as I remember it, goes something like this.

A man decided to travel from one city to another by crossing the desert.  Unfortunately, he had understimated the provisions he needed for the trip and half way through, he ran out of food and water.

He continued for another two days, hoping to come across an oasis from which he could quench his thirst.

He was about to give up when he spotted a tree in the distance.  Nearly delirious with thirst, and wary of the tricks the desert can play on the mind and eyes, he staggered towards the tree, expecting it to disappear as he approached.

To his delight, the tree was real and he found respite under its shade.

Revived by an hour’s rest under the tree’s cooling shade, the man said, “Oh how I wish there was water.”

Within seconds, the man felt a coolness under his right hand and found a bubbling stream of cool water rising from a underground spring.  Delighted, he scooped handful after handful of refreshing water to his parched lips.

Drinking his fill, he rested against the trunk of the tree until he felt the pangs of hunger.

Looking up at the branches above him, he said, “Oh how I wish there were the juiciest of fruit above me.”

He was jolted by the impact of a fresh fig upon his head.  Suddenly, figs and dates fell from the branches above, piling up around him up to his knees.  Laughing with delight, he gorged himself on the heavenly fruit buffet.

The sudden appearance of water and food caused him to suspect that he was under no ordinary tree.  Perhaps it was the fabled Wish Fulfilling Tree that he had heard so much about.

Buoyed by gifts of food and drink, he dared to wish for something even greater.  “Oh”, he said, “I wish I had the wealth of kings!”

Before the last syllable left his lips, it began to rain gold coins and jewels, much more than he could fill his pockets and satchel with.

Looking up at the tree with wonder, he said, “I don’t believe it!  This is impossible!”

With that, everything disappeared and he was left as thirsty and as famished as when he arrived.


I love this story so much because it reminds me why we don’t get what we pray for– we just don’t believe within us that what we ask for can happen!  And that is also a wish fulfilled!
