If you do not understand that the only thing that affects your experience is how you are flowing Energy; if you think it is about chance, luck, coincidence, statistics, or the low of averages, then when you see on the news that there is a killer on the loose, shooting widely from his car into your neighbourhood, you feel vulnerable because you think that your happiness or your Well-Being is dependent upon his behaviour. But if your well-being if dependent upon his behaviour and you cannot control him, you do not even know where he is, you cannot get enough police officers to take care of him, then your vulnerability soars.
We want you to feel the value of connecting with Non-Physical Energy, and appreciation is the easiest and fastest way. When you desire too connect with the Non-Physical Energy is sufficient enough, you will find dozens of ways, in every hour, to flow your appreciation.
You have to come to remember that it makes no difference whatsoever how anybody is flowing back ay you, otherwise you are going to be defensive, and you cannot be defensive and appreciative at the same time. When you concentrate on appreciating, then appreciation comes right back. But you are really not looking for appreciation to come to you, you want the feeling of it flowing through you.
As you move through your day and you become aware of something that you do not want, your desire about what you do want comes into clearer focus. And now, since you have been practising the Rampage of Appreciation, you can easily refocus your awareness of what you do not want into your awareness of what you do want. Now you are the hands on creator that you have come forth to be. Life is not about tomorrow, it is about right now. Life is about how you are currently molding the Energy.
