ASK YOU SHALL RECEIVE
"Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. (Matthew 7:7)” is not an empty phrase. It is really meaningful. According to the Law of Attraction, the universe is unlimited. There can never be a lack of anything that we want if we follow the Law of Attraction. There is more than enough to go around and it is unnecessary to take what others may have. The Law of Attraction dictates that everything is possible.
There are two reasons for our not getting what we have asked for. First is we are vague in our desires. Most of us only have a vague and misty concept of what we want. If we can't get clear about what we want and why we want it, then we are like a person in a restaurant who keeps waffling between menu items, never able to come to a decision. Until we place an order, the waiter can't bring us our food. Until we get clarity and until our desire is intense nothing will come out of it.
The second is, we don’t act upon it. If the desire is intense we will definitely do necessary things to make the desire fulfilled. If we don’t act we will not receive. It is simple. If we have no real intention of acting, then why bother asking? Acting doesn't always mean some huge undertaking. Usually it's just a small incremental change. It is listening to the little gut feelings, the still small voice that tells us to do this or that. If we keep on acting, we will surely receive the blessings we seek.
The idea is nicely explained in the little poem by Jessie B. Rittenhouse -
”I bargained with Life for a penny,
And Life would pay no more,
However I begged at evening
When I counted my scanty store;
For Life is a just employer,
And gives you what you ask,
But once you have set the wages,
Why, you must bear the task.
I worked for a menial’s hire,
Only to learn, dismayed
That any wage I had asked of Life,
Life would have willingly paid.”
