VOICES OF HOPE
By Audrey Hope
The Missing Chapter on Prosperity
THE BLESSING OF NOT GETTING WHAT I WANT
“I should be suspicious of what I want.” — RUMI
There is a missing chapter in the book on manifesting,
It is called — The Blessing of Not Getting What I Want.
Not manifesting is the secret to life!!!
When I don’t get what I want —
I am forced to things that don’t come from this world.
When I don’t get the love I need —
I am on my knees seeking an invisible embrace.
When I don’t get the house I long to live in —
I am desperate to find shelter from inside.
When I don’t get the job, the relationship, the raise, the car —
the life — my pain leads me to alone empty silence.
In red rage, there is no one else to reach for,
and nothing else to do, and no where else to go,
and no more tears to cry —
and in exhaustion, I find the ground and surrender.
And I find you — God.
And in you, myself, with you.
And then — the richest jewel on earth —
beyond all understanding —
What grace — to not get what I want.
I should be suspicious of what I want.
