“Until one is committed, there is hesitancy, the chance to draw back, always ineffectiveness concerning all acts of initiative and creation. There is one elementary truth, the ignorance of which kills countless ideas and splendid plans; that the moment one definitely commits oneself, then providence moves too.
“All sorts of things occur to help one that would never otherwise have occurred. A whole stream of events issues from the decision raising in one’s favor all manner of unforeseen events, meetings and material assistance which no one could have dreamed would have come their way.
“I have learned a deep respect for one of Goethe’s couplets: ‘Whatever you can do or dream you can, begin it. Boldness has genius, power and magic in it. Begin it now!’” W. H. Murray
When we commit to doing something, our power of attraction kicks in, and God blesses us with “coincidences” that would not occur if we hadn’t made our decision to commit. After we have intuited that the thing that we want is a good thing, will hurt nobody, and is something we really want, then we move, and we move quickly. “Providence moves too,” we can believe. Our power of decision has given us the chance to see God act in all the support that He can muster.
If what we want is not a good thing, then we can be assured that we won’t have a divine blessing upon our doings, and additionally, that there is probably an egoic tilt to what we want. We may still get it, but it also may turn to ashes and dust in our hands.
Better to be sure that what we want is a right thing–right at the start–then move to create it in our lives.
Then God and we are on the same page.
