reachingI see manifestation as a spiritual journey—a coming home to your “best,” most realized self. What you create with your life reflects your essential values, beliefs, talents and responses to circumstances as well as your capacity to make choices, commit to your own intention, and take a proactive approach to making things happen. How you go about that process is a combination of how you “be” and what you do, the balance of yin and yang. It requires first that you be rooted in the present moment and then that you accept and integrate whatever happens, whatever “the universe sends to you.” It is not by attaining whatever you are striving for, but rather through the process of creating that you mature. You become, not “get” the prize. Does this mean you won’t get any “prizes?” No, but the ones you get will bring deeper meaning to your life.”   — The Way of Joy
