To the people in my life I was once closer to
Time and eternity cannot both be real, because they contradict each other. (A Course in Miracles)

To desire wholly is to create (A Course in Miracles)

If there is anything you want to create which has not yet manifested in your life, it is because you do not desire it wholly. You may believe you want all sorts of things: a happy relationship, children, to achieve a goal, to create a work of art or a successful business. In truth, if there is anything you want that is not present, it can only be for a few reasons:

1) You do not want it wholly

If you wholly want a happy, healthy, perfect relationship, then you will have one. Any such relationship begins with loving yourself. Figure this out, and your relationships with others can only be perfect. As for children, if you wholly wanted children, you would have children with one simple act of creation. The same goes with achieving a goal or creating anything at all. If you wholly wanted it, then this is where you would focus work and attention. It would be so.

2) You are wanting something external rather than creating

You may want world peace, or for a loved one to change, or for the world to finally recognize your brilliance. The problem here is that what you desire is not a creative desire. You are giving attention to what is outside your control, while you only have control over your creations.

Hoping, praying, and waiting for something external to happen in the world or in your life is misdirected desire. So much of what appears real and significant in this life is entirely beyond our control.

The good news is that your perfect love, joy, health, and everything you most deeply want is entirely within your control. The way to achieve it is through your God-given, God-like power to create.  There is nothing external required for you to thrive within the realm that is already fully yours.

If something is beyond your control, then you can easily accept it. If you wholly desire something within your creative control, then create it. If you do not wholly desire it, then be honest with yourself about it and find a sense of peace there.
