What’s In Hope?

Iceland WaterfallsOne of our most common phrases about the future starts with: “I hope…” yet hope by itself is only the starting point for achieving a better future.

When I was a child, I was full of hope for my future because I was taught to believe that, by being hopeful, everything would be okay. I was hoping along, well into my teens, when I began to lose stride with that indefinite attitude. Then hope began to fade and I was totally off target with the kind of life I had ‘hoped’ for. It wasn’t until my situation was almost completely hopeless that I was inspired to pick myself up out of the mess I had created. When I started working with my spirit and the Light*, I turned the passive hopefulness of my earlier life into the strength of action for positive change in my life.

The notion of hope is so abstract, yet it is an essential survival skill that can bring motivating strength to find solutions to difficult situations. As I continued to work with my spirit and applied positive principles to my daily life, the spiritual connection I had previously been missing became an astounding advantage. Because of my spiritual sensitivity, it became apparent that, rather than idle acceptance of all the negative interference that had waylaid my hopes, I had to grow continuously stronger at counteracting the higher-level impediments to my wellbeing.

Hope by itself is a reflection of being personally impotent to change a situation, but hope combined with courage brings strength of purpose. With respect to everything I can’t personally change, I can use the term ‘hope’ to bring positive results to an external situation, so I can hope everything works out well for someone else, and I hope the world finally resolve its problems and finds peace.

When I proceed in any aspect of my life, I always start with a reasonably attainable goal and ask for help at the higher level. Together with analyzing my situation and potential opportunities, my decisions are inspired by my spirit and filtered down to me by my higher self. Once I can identify the way in which I can implement that higher-level inspiration, I can take focused action to achieve a positive result. I can’t just hope that it will all turn out well…I have to take concrete steps to do it.

Positive action is the key when it comes to your own future. You are the director of your existence…so you should do it, not just hope it will happen! When you work in a positive manner with your spirit, you have the added advantage of higher-level knowledge to help you accomplish your goals.
