There is no desire that anyone holds for any other reason than that they believe they will feel better in the achievement of it. Whether it is a material object, a physical state of being, a relationship, a condition, or a circumstance at the heart of evert desire is the desire to feel goof. And so, the standard of success in life is not the things or the money, the standard of success if absolutely the amount of joy you feel.
The basis of life is freedom, and the result of life is expansion, but the purpose of your life is joy. And that is why the main event has never been the manifestation. It has always been the way you feel in the moment. In other words, you intended to come into the physical realm of contrast to define what is wanted, to connect with the Energy that creates worlds, and to flow it towards your objects of attention, not because the objects of attention are important, but because the act of flowing Energy is essential to life.
