“In your action, you lose sight of the vision, you lose sight of your trust in the process, and you just bang around in a sense of futility. Hold the vision and trust that the Universe will acclimate to your vision. Hold the vision and trust the process.”  Abraham [Excerpted from Portland, OR on 6/10/97]

In the Course in Miracles there is a statement that resonates with many people…”I need do nothing.”  It doesn’t mean that there isn’t action required, but the usage of the word need often implies work, effort and struggle, which isn’t a requirement as we learn to allow the working of the law to manifest around a vision held by us.  Today’s quote speaks the same language and reminds us to practice simply holding a desire or vision and to then trust the process of the Universe supplying it or something better.  Certainly action may indeed be part of the equation, but it won’t involve strain or effort.
