Sometimes when we embark on a spiritual journey and our minds have become quiet we stumble upon seemingly magical coincidences. Sometimes we get curious and we get sidetracked. In our everyday lives, this power is manifested when our desires are fine tuned with faith and detachment. This is 15 Minute Manifestation
the combination of events that makes things happen instantaneously, as Deepak Chopra calls it, instantaneous manifestation of desire. Just remember the times when you have arrived at the supermarket and while the whole parking lot was full, a person happens to be just pulling out in time for you to park. Coincidence? Perhaps. But what if it happens again and again? You realize that you can, at will, influence events. You have tapped into your power, but eventually we realize that the whole power trip is a trap-a test.
I always go back to the pages in the bible when Jesus came out of the forty day and night fasting and prayer, and He became hungry. The devil presented to Him the following offers:Turn this stone into bread, jump off the pinnacle of this temple, and finally, worship me and I will give you dominion over the world for it has been handed to me. The trap is so well presented, so simple. Just show me that you are the Son of God as you claim to be.As I reflect on it again and again, I realized that Jesus could still be hungry because he was still in the flesh. That the devil uses quotations from the bible is most appealing to the human intellect, but the last one is more general and would appeal to a human far more than the first two. All humans are tempted by power, presented in different packages.
