When your mind and heart are truly open abundance will flow to you effortlessly and easily.
If I want something to happen in my life, how much influence do I actually have and what must I do to make it happen? Is it all in a predetermined order, or can I influence the outcome?
Your influence in making things happen depends on the depth of your consciousness. The more you are able to desire from your cosmic self, you will have more support of all the laws of nature behind your every thought and action. When the power and intelligence of the universe is supporting your desire, then you have a great influence in making things happen. If your desire is only based on your individual or ego wants, then the outcome will be based upon the strength of your will and the prevailing environmental factors involved.
