When trying to manifest a thought or desire into the physical world, we sometimes overlook one important ingredient. We all know that visualization and feeling are necessary components, but there is something else. To understand how creation occurs, how idea becomes reality, it is easier to look to our immediate earthly experience for the pattern, rather than metaphysical philosophy. Here’s an example:
When an architect sets about designing a house, there are two things that must be present: a client and a site. The client supplies the need, and the site supplies the place. The absence of either of these elements will prevent the entire process. After all, what architect succeeds merely by making plans? The client’s need comes in the form of a vision, a spirit if you will. It constitutes the executive decision, the “this will be” that motivates the resources needed to bring the plans to fruition – the cash, the will, the consensus. The site provides the vision a place to happen, a contact point with the earth, without which the best dreams are but disembodied spirits, wandering desires, always reaching but never grasping.
All legitimate spiritual teachers give their students the same mandate: learn to concentrate. Focus. Successful people in the world don’t need to be reminded of this. It is only those of us with one foot in heaven that need help. And the physical equivalent of focus is site. Unless you bring the elements of earth together in your planning, there can be no manifestation. Pick a spot. Say to the universe, “This will happen HERE.” This is every bit as important as the now. In fact, you might say that the here is the physical iteration of the now – time and space being two sides of the same coin.
Unless “Divine Law” is detectable in the physical world, and provable, it is nothing more than a philosophy – great as entertainment but of no practical use. If you want to know how to get your prayers answered, look how you accomplish anything. See what energies you bring to the task, the resources, the will, the cash. But most important, where is your focus in the world – your site?
