Live in a Helpful,
Supportive Universe
Wayne Dyer

  

One of the most important decisions you'll ever make is choosing the kind of universe you exist in:  is it helpful and supportive or hostile and unsupportive?  Your answer to this question will make all the difference in terms of how you live your life and what kind of Divine assistance you attract.

Remember that you get what you think about, whether you want it or not.  So if you're sure that this is an unfriendly universe, you'll look for examples to support this point of view.  You'll anticipate people attempting to cheat, judge, take advantage of, and otherwise harm you.  You'll blame the antagonistic, inhospitable cosmos for not cooperating with you in the fulfillment of your desires.  You'll point the finger at belligerent folks and bad luck for the kind of world we all live in.  Since this worldview trickles down into every thought you have, you become a person persistently looking for occasions to be offended, and therefore in possession of a whole slew of excuses.

I implore you to see the universe as a warm and supportive one. . . because you'll look for evidence to support this view.  When you believe that the universe is friendly, you see friendly people.  You look for circumstances to work in your favor.  You expect good fortune flowing into your life.  In other words, you aren't looking for excuses!

My favorite affirmation when I feel stuck or out of sorts is:  Whatever I need is already here, and it is all for my highest good.  Jot this down and post it conspicuously throughout your home, on the dashboard of your car, at your office, on your microwave oven, and even in front of your toilet!  Remind yourself:  I live in a friendly universe that will support any thing or desire that is aligned with the universal Source of all.  Such a stance will be a giant step toward living an excuse-free life.

Affirming that what you want is already here and all you have to do is connect to it causes you to remember that what you attract is for your highest good, so you can then let go of the timing issue altogether.  Just know that it is here and will arrive on God's schedule--as does everything that makes the journey from nonbeing to being.

I've found that by shifting my belief about the nature of the universe, I attract whatever I desire into my life.  I desire love.  I desire peace.  I desire health.  I desire happiness.  I desire prosperity.  Why would I want to hold the view that our universe is unsupportive, evil, and unfriendly?  How could I expect the Divine realm to hear me if I'm asking it to be something other than what it is?  Thus, I see my desires in perfect rapport with how the universe works.

When I pray, I do so in the spirit of Saint Francis.  Rather than ask God to grant him peace, this inspiring man beseeched God to "make me an instrument of Thy peace."  In other words, "Let me be like the Source from which I originated, and then I will rest in the knowing that it must be here, on its way, and for my highest good."  As you can see, there's no room for excuses when you apply this model to your everyday life.

As I've written and said many times, "When you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change."  And this applies to the entire universe.
   

Within the pages of this transformational book, Dr. Wayne W. Dyer reveals how to change the self-defeating thinking patterns that have prevented you from living at the highest levels of success, happiness, and health.  Even though you may know what to think, actually changing those thinking habits that have been with you since childhood might be somewhat challenging.   If I changed, it would create family dramas . . . Im too old or too young . . . Im far too busy and tired . . . I cant afford the things I truly want . . . may all seem to be true, but theyre in fact just excuses.  So the business of modifying habituated thinking patterns really comes down to tossing out the same tired old excuses and examining your beliefs in a new and truthful light.
