What have you defined as what you need that creates the limitation of your reality?
If you say, “I need a girlfriend,” if you don’t have a girlfriend, do you then have to judge you? Big time. So you spend your entire life judging you because you don’t have a girlfriend. Anything you say you need becomes the limitation you cannot overcome.
Who or what have you made such a need for in your life, that keeps you from creating beyond it? Choice creates. You want to function from choice, not need.
You’ve got to look at what your choice is going to create. Every choice creates a different possibility. Look at your choices as: “If I choose this, what will my life be like in five years? If I don’t choose this, what will my life be like in five years?” When you look at those things, you tend to notice that one of them is lighter and more expansive than the other one. The one that’s lighter and more expansive is the choice you want to make.
The difficulty is that most of us don’t think we can make choices. The reality is we make choices everyday. When you get up in the morning, do you put on the same clothes you had on yesterday? That’s a choice. But you don’t think that those choices are going to create anything. Have you ever noticed that when you dress really nicely one day, people look at you differently and act differently towards you? It’s because that choice creates something different in their world. You’ve got to recognize that every choice you make creates a difference in the world. You’ve got to figure out what choices you really want to make and what you’d like to create in your life.
Functioning from your needs stops you from having everything you desire. You might desire more money in your life, but that doesn’t mean that you need it. Need is the idea that you’ll never have enough and that you’ve got to do the greedy thing and hold onto what you’ve got.
If you function from your needs, what you can’t do is fulfill your desires. Desires are usually about future realities. But if you put your attention on what you need, you will never actually create a future. How many needs are you using to avoid the futures you could be choosing?
If you no longer had any needs, what could you create that would give you everything you desire?
