Carrying A Cross

Written by Chris Cade on . Posted in Spiritual Development

Gratitude to Paulo Coelho for this story…

In a certain village in Umbria (Italy), there lived a man who was always bewailing his lot. He was a Christian, and found the weight of his cross too heavy to bear.

One night, before going to sleep, he begged God to let him change his burden.

That night he had a dream; the Lord led him to a warehouse. "Go ahead and change it," he said. The man saw crosses of all sizes and shapes, with the names of their owners. He picked an average size cross – but when he saw the name of an old friend written on it, he left it aside.

Finally, as God had permitted, he chose the smallest cross he could find.

To his surprise, he saw his own name written on it.

Reflection Questions

  • How big is the "cross" that you carry?
  • Under which circumstances would you ask for a different cross?
  • Bring into your thoughts another person who has a cross. Would you give that person a lighter or heavier cross? Why?

When you think about the future… how do you feel?

Worried? Fearful? Depressed? Even hopeless?

Maybe complacent, indecisive, indifferent, or just "it will be what it will be"?

Or are you bursting with confidence, optimism and excitement?

… with delight, joy, and unquestionable faith that an awesome future is inevitable?

It's an important question to answer, because…

How we feel today determines what we will experience in the future.

The vibration we send out influences what the Divine brings into our lives.

Ironically, worrying won't help (because that vibration isn't supportive). And fortunately, even if we are feeling anxious or negative, that doesn't mean we're destined to a gloomy future.

In fact, quite the opposite is true. By being aware of how we feel now, we can deliberately choose a brighter and better future. We can always choose anew. 🙂

One way to do that involves following 3 simple steps that my friend Christy is teaching during her new free online training: "How to Deliberately Design Your Awesome Future"

The subtitle she's given it is "Accelerate your manifestations by connecting with your future self." In other words, she's showing how we can step into the best version of ourselves and at the same time carry that energy forth into the lives we want to deliberately create for ourselves.

During this free class, we will explore:

  • How to use the Law of Deliberate Creation to consciously choose and attract more of what you want. (If you’re using the Law of Attraction, but not getting the results you want, this information will transform your life.)
  • Why connecting with a future self who already exists is the secret key for manifesting the future you want to experience. (Multiple versions of your future self already exist – this process ensures you pick the right version.)
  • 3 aspects of connecting with your future self so you can easily manifest what you want in every aspect of your life. (Skip even one of these, and manifesting your dreams will become far harder – if not impossible).
  • How to choose the future you want to experience and live into that reality as it already exists. (Spiritual teachers and great authors alike already share this advice. I’ll explain why it works – and how to succeed at it, guaranteed.)

I've known Christy for MANY years and she is just a wonderful woman, a powerful teacher, and an example of somebody who changed her life by living what she teaches.

At one point she was unhappy in a pharmaceutical job, overweight, and felt unlovable and unable to have a meaningful intimate relationship.

Now, she teaches people worldwide how to live amazing lives, she has a body she fantastically loves (last month I shared with you how she did that), and she has a phenomenal husband who I personally adore and love… he's got a heart of gold.

But she couldn't have done it if she didn't believe that it was possible.

She couldn't have done it if she stayed stuck in guilt, worry, fear, and other unpleasant feelings.

And she couldn't have done it without the support of her own mentors, coaches, and support that helped her see through the mud and into the clear blue sky.

Now Christy is sharing what she's learned so that you can SHORTCUT the path leading into your awesome future. 🙂
