“You have to work for it. You can’t get something for nothing.”
“There’s no such thing as a free lunch.”
And then, last night, while watching “Stephen Hawking’s Great Discoveries”, he was talking about the Big Bang, the Cosmos, and God. And something quite extraordinary happened. (For the record, I’m not a math/science girl, but I’m fascinated by it, and I know enough to follow the conversation when someone who knows a heap more than I do explains it.) Stephen Hawking explained that one of the laws of the universe was that you can get something from nothing. That for every action there is positive energy (such as piling up dirt into a hill) and negative energy (making the hole from which the dirt came.). And this exists throughout the universe.
So if something as extraordinary as our universe can happen out of nothing, then why can’t we manifest abundance?
I think it’s because we get in our own way. My partner immediately said, “well if there’s positive and negative energy, then why would you want to manifest abundance knowing someone else will get poverty.” To which I told him, “in this show positive and negative energy just is. It’s not inherently good or bad. So who are we to say that positive abundance will automatically create lack somewhere else. We don’t know what negative energy is in the universe. Perhaps our abundance renders someone else too rich to do any good? That wouldn’t manifest lack. We cannot say what “negative” might be in this context. Someone else might see very little abundance as a positive influence in his or her life.” My partner had to agree I had a point, though I smiled to myself, because I could also tell I made his head hurt with my non-scientific logic.
So before I make your head go all ‘splodey, just think about this: The universe can and does create “something” out of “nothing”. This also means that we can create “something” out of “nothing”, because if we do not apply our own limiting concepts to these terms, who knows what we can create. We limit ourselves with our own thoughts.
