Making vs. Forcing

The value of deciding in advance what you want to happen is simply that you will perceive the situation as a means to make it happen. You will therefore make every effort to overlook what interferes with the accomplishment of your objective and concentrate on everything which helps you meet it.
- A Course in Miracles
______________________________

You see, there is really nothing wrong with "making things happen" through the power of your mind/thoughts and actions, etc.  What We are really warning you about when We make fun of "making shit happen" is that it usually means you are actually trying to FORCE something to happen - something resistant and that is quite often not at all for your greater good. FORCING is the bashing your bloody head against a door that is locked to YOU. Do NOT overlook your bloody head and all the signs that you are going in the wrong direction! But DO overlook all the old ego doubts, fears and insecurities that keep you from creating the life you choose for yourself. 

DECIDING what you want and then going in that direction is how life is meant to work for you dear Miracle Worker. However, there is a HUGE difference between being a Miracle Worker and a miracle forcer. And this is a matter of practice, practice, practice in CONSULTING and LISTENING to God-Within. This is what your INTUITION and GUIDANCE is FOR - LISTENING, LISTENING, LISTENING, and then learning and DOING. You ARE now learning to TRUST YOURSELF and your GUT. This is FUCKING HUGE.

"Making things happen" is how you go on vacation even. Someone chooses the dates, the destination, the mode of travel, books it all, packs, and on and on. That IS "making it happen" - it doesn't just appear out of nowhere. You're the one. No one is coming to save you or live your life for you. HOWEVER, you are not alone in this and if you start FORCING it to happen and pushing hard through obstacle after obstacle after obstacle, as you probably well know, it's USUALLY not going to be a very pleasant trip. You must remember that GOD WITHIN is YOU - the broader perspective part of you that KNOWS and will GUIDE IF you LISTEN. This means LESS HARD WORK and more simply taking the inspired action.

The purpose of Masterclass is for you to TUNE IN more deeply and frequently than you EVER have before, and then to APPLY what you are LEARNING. Shit's getting good around here, but only if you step up your game and step up to the plate. We're Helping you hit more home runs than ever before. Time to get in the game. Peace is NOT about falling asleep on the bench. It's balance. There's time to hit the ball, run the bases, make the score - and there is time to refresh and rest on the bench while you relax and hydrate. It's best if you are doing some of each every day, every day, every day. Life is meant to be a FUN GAME. Not sure if you've heard that before or not, but chew on it for a while. It's not a game you win or lose, and it's not one where there is a score kept. It's a game that is played for the sheer JOY of the playing. Only those who get caught up in the score and competition end up suffering - and frankly, that is about 99.9% of your human culture. Aren't you glad to be here with Us in Opposite World?
