The Deeper Meaning of the Serenity Prayer
The Self Induced Limitations Often "Perceived" To Be Wisdom Based On The Serenity Prayer
Almost everyone is familiar with the Serenity Prayer. It contains profound wisdom that once understood for what it's "truly" conveying and applied can make dramatic shifts in the tangible aspects of your life.
Just as many use it as a crutch and/or an excuse to keep them from getting what they truly desire in life.
If you're not familiar with The Serenity Prayer or perhaps forgotten it, here it is...
"God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change; courage to change the things I can; and wisdom to know the difference."
Many people "believe" that to mean that they are unable to change the quality of their lives...that they're unable to shift what they "perceive" as being external outcomes unfolding as the result of something outside of themselves, whether people, events, conditions, circumstances etc etc. without understanding that NONE of these things can impact or affect their lives without their willingness to allow them to.
In other words undesirable events, conditions and circumstances CAN BE changed when you "truly" understand how it is they are being created.
The first essential understanding to come to is the fact that they AREN'T, NEVER HAVE BEEN, nor EVER WILL BE created by externals of any form UNLESS you choose to "allow" externals to determine yours.
There are no doubt things that we must learn to accept regarding our lives and the fact that they can't be changed
Here's what you CAN"T change.
The fact that we are all interconnected.
The fact that ALL things at their core are comprised of energy.
The immutable and unwavering Universal Laws that have been in place since time itself began to govern and determine based on the resonance of energy, what it forms to create.
That's ALL you can't change. That is wisdom in it's purest and most basic form. Simple, transformational and profound wisdom.
Here's what you CAN change which if done consciously and intentionally, can, will and does change what you see and perceive as being so "unchangeable" in the external world.
Yourself...more specifically what you are choosing to be.
You can change yourself and make the shifts that enact these laws in a way that is different than you have, producing different results than you've received. A conscious and intentional choice to do so literally changes the "resonance" that you project which in turn changes what you "attract" to yourself plain and simple.
That's NOT wisdom...it's data based on falsely acquired beliefs and perceptions that so many "perceive" to be wisdom and truth which inevitably unfolds in their lives just as they "believe and perceive" that it will.
No, I can't change the fact that gravity exists, but does that mean that I'm stuck my entire life with my feet firmly planted on the ground? NO. It means I must use my mind...the infinite potential that exists within the mind to tap into the infinite field where ALL probabilities already exist to conceive the "idea" that shows me how to harmonize with the law of gravity and still receive the desired result.
Case in point...
At one point parachutes and airplanes and hang gliders didn't exist. Where did they come from? NOT from someone who said I have enough wisdom to know that there is nothing I can do about it I'll assure you.
That's NOT wisdom. It's limitation based on an "unconscious choice" to believe that you can't do anything to create the "desired" result. A very limiting and self sabotaging choice that can NEVER produce the desired outcome.
You don't have to invent something new to apply it in your life. In fact, just the fact that it already exists everywhere around you should...I repeat SHOULD make it quite apparent that you CAN. But most don't BELIEVE they can which creates that result just as they "believe and perceive" they will.
They get to be right...without fail.
There's another thing that you can't change. The fact that what you choose to give attention to will without fail unfold just as you yourself are choosing. Your attention determines your INTENTION and you will experience just that.
Wisdom...untainted wisdom is understanding and consciously applying the immutable and unwavering wisdom that clearly shows that what you expect to happen tomorrow, next week, next year, next decade and for the rest of your life will in many cases unfold just as you expect it will. It's all about expectation.
Allow and enable yourself to absorb and apply "real wisdom" in your life and you'll soon know what it means to become a conscious, intentional and purposeful creator in the physical, financial, relational, emotional and spiritual aspects which collectively make your life whatever it is.
Trust in the LORD with all your heartand lean not on your own understanding;in all your ways acknowledge him,and he will direct your paths. - Proverbs 3, 5-6
The first step in making that real and miracle creating in your own life is discerning what God is for yourself and eliminating any of the preconceived notions that others have told you.
