Clarity

Excerpt from The Clarity Cleanse, by Dr. Habib Sadeghi:

“The more we reach for clarity, the more space we create in our consciousness. The more space we create, the more room there is inside of us for love to expand and grow.

Love is a natural state of being, the divine state of being. When we empty ourselves of all the clutter and muck we have been needlessly carrying around with us from experience to experience, love naturally grows in the space we have created. As it says in the Bible (I John 4:8 NIV), ‘Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love.'”

“Too often people resign themselves to living lives that aren’t worthy of them because they don’t think they can have something better. I believe every one of us can have more, can be more. There are numerous statements in the Bible that assure us God is willing to give us more if we only ask for it, such as, ‘Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you.’ (Matthew 7:7 NIV).

[…]

Too many of us lose out on a great relationship, fulfilling job, a beautiful experience, a full and wonderful life because we don’t ask for it. We don’t ask because we don’t believe we can have it. There are no shortcuts to living the life you’ve always wanted to live, to be the person you’ve always wanted to be. You have to believe, you have to ask, and you have to do the work– […] There’s a difference between asking for tea with your cup held tightly to your breast so that it’s difficult for the pourer to reach it and asking with your arm outstretched, holding your empty cup out in an open gesture of receiving.” Dr. Habib Sadeghi, 239-240, The Clarity Cleanse

“There’s a difference between asking for tea with your cup held tightly to your breast so that it’s difficult for the pourer to reach it and asking with your arm outstretched, holding your empty cup out in an open gesture of receiving.”
