What a lesson in The Law of Attraction! Maybe this bird knows what he's doing, and maybe he doesn't, but the effect is the same--he's attracting what he's looking for.
It's not too different for us. What we seek out is usually just what we get. If we display our many colors, talents, and gifts, we attract people and situations that are perfectly compatible with us and our intentions. But, if we show only our dull, complaining, poor-me side, then we'll attract just that--whiners, dullards, and victims.
All the prosperity we'll ever need is right within us in the form of our gifts and talents, and we are surrounded by the abundant universe that responds to our openness. I remember a girlfriend of mine many years ago who complained that all she encountered were alcoholic men. I asked her where she met them--and you guessed it--in bars! It doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure out that we determine in advance what life will bring us both through our attitudes and actions.
I also fondly remember Rev. Sharon Poindexter, founding minister of PATH Ministries, reminding us to affirm expecting "this or something better."
Warm Father, Strong Mother God, may I acknowledge the treasures within myself, and in giving them freely and joyfully, watch them multiply.
