Being Naturally Deserving

Imagine that you walk into an amusement park. From the minute you walk into the park you are automatically allowed and entitled to go on every ride in that park. No one is more entitled to those rides than you are and no one is less entitled. Everyone is entitled to all the rides in the park - simply because the rides are there.

Now imagine one person walks in and says “You know, I don’t feel right about just being able to go on the roller coaster. I feel as if I have to do something to deserve it. I know, I will sweep the park and then I will feel entitled to go on the roller coaster.”

And so they start sweeping. And then someone walks up to them and asks what they are doing and they say “I am sweeping up the park, so I will feel entitled to go on the roller coaster.”

So this new person says “Oh, O.K. I think I will also start sweeping up the park to feel better about going on the roller coaster. “ And then the new persons begins sweeping.

Now a few more people come in and ask what they are doing. And instead of saying they chose to sweep up the park, they instead say “We are sweeping up the park so we will be deserving of going on the roller coaster.“

Now these new people are under the impression that you HAVE to sweep up the park to be able to go on the roller coaster, -- they never even question who made up this rule or where it came from.

When the truth is “No ONE has to sweep up the park to go on the roller coaster and NO ONE ever said they did!

Some of the people actually get so caught up in the sweeping, they totally forget about the roller coaster all together!

This is the perfect example of many peoples attitudes towards being deserving of good things while on Earth.

Somewhere along the way they picked up the mistaken belief that they have to DO certain things to be deserving. Deserving of money, of success, of love, of happiness. That somehow they have to do things to earn it or be worthy. Or they somehow have to suffer before they can be allowed to enjoy life.

But the truth is, you are simply entitled to every good thing on this planet simply by being here and simply because it is all here at the same time that you are and no ONE up THERE has EVER said anything different!

Only people have come up with these misconceptions, and others have blindly followed without ever asking the simple question: Who SAYS?

Who SAYS I have to work at a job that I hate if I want to make enough money to live?
Who SAYS I am not entitled or deserving to have a lot of money?
Who SAYS that others are more entitled to it than I am?
Who SAYS that I have to do things I don’t want to do if I want to be in a loving relationship?
Who SAYS that manifesting things I want has to be difficult?
Who SAYS that I have to put my time in before I am deserving?
Who SAYS that I have to sacrifice in some areas if I want good in others?

NO ONE has said! No Powers That Be ever came up with that rule!! Only people with misguided beliefs.

So if you find yourself with these hidden misconceptions, it is time to take them out and examine them. Ask yourself the simple question - Who SAYS this is true? And where did they get that crazy idea that it is true? And Why should it be true?

And the more you examine these ideas and really, really try to get to the heart of where these ideas originated, you will begin to realize that most of these misconceptions you carry with you simply came from people who are “sweeping parks for absolutely no reason“.

YOU are entitled to every good thing this Earth and Universe has to offer - simply because you are HERE! This is the biggest playground in the world and you are entitled to go on every ride you desire just because the rides are here for your enjoyment.

And you do not have to earn it - you do not have to do anything to deserve it - you do not have to sacrifice other good things to enjoy it - and there is not and never has been anyone up there trying to keep it from you.

Only your misguided thoughts have kept your greatest manifestations at bay.

So start telling yourself a new story. When and if you feel that:

I can only have that if I....
I can only enjoy this after I....
I will only be entitled to this when...
If only I was....then I can have what I want

Stop yourself in your own tracks and ask yourself....WHO SAYS?

You will be delightfully surprised at the relief you will feel when you get to the heart of the matter and realize there is no good answer to that question, and you will be free to enjoy every ride while you are here.

Happy Creating!

I'm really glad you wrote this article. It's perhaps one of the best articles I've read in a long time. Although the allusion is quite simple you have nonetheless nailed a point in life where people quite often question their self value. I grew up in a family that had perfunctorily taught me that obscure merits will ultimately get me what I want. Mostly I think people who grow up or learn things this way come from a social environment that is constantly bombarding the individual with mixed messages. If we consider the growing adolescent today -- with so many different points of views and information -- one could easily be led astray. What do you think? How are they to stay on target? How can someone reassure themselves that what they think is the right thing?

Thank you so much for your comment!

People can reassure themselves that they are thinking the right thing simply because they are the ones that are thinking it! And who would know better than them?

No one has a better perspective than you do about your own life - no matter how well meaning others are trying to be with their advice.

It is important to remember that they can only see through their own personal lens - but it doesn't mean their solution is right for you.

No one else can put themselves in your shoes because they don't know what makes you happy, what turns you on, what gets you excited, what your goals are, how you want to feel or what you want to do!

Another important thing to remember is they also don't have to pay the price for their advice if it doesn't work out - you do.

It can be difficult at first to leave the "peanut gallery" out of the equation, but with practice everyone can learn to trust themselves again.

Too often our low self esteem has us thinking that others must know better than we do - but we can break through that illusion a little bit at a time by asking the questions - Wait! Who Says? How do they know? That doesn't feel right to me - This is what I want! I am allowed to want what I want! I am on this planet to have and do what I want - I am not here to make them happy or to live their experience - just as they aren't here to live mine. I'm OK the way I am - they are Ok the way they are - but there is no RULE book - there is not one single instance where there is one perfect answer that would apply to everyone - so I guess it is up to me to make my own rules that work for me.

And that is not only OK - it is what I am here for.
