Hope: the quintessential fabrication of man. The word is hollow and gives promises it cannot deliver. Hope misguides, vilifies, and pontificates! Do you have any idea what the word actually means? Let us venture into the world of Hope.
“Hope is the denial of reality.” ~ Margaret Weis, Dragons of Winter Night
Dictionary.com states the meaning this way: the feeling that what is wanted can be had or that events will turn out for the best; to feel that something desired may happen. Look very closely at this wording and examine the feeling it brings.
First of all Hope is a feeling, not something tangible or concrete. It is a want, a state of mind that acknowledges a possibility but not a reality. Wanting is another hollow feeling that can give nothing more than the feeling! “May happen” is a statement of doubt. It is saying, “This is something that may happen but I doubt it will”.
Is doubt what you intend? Maybe it is just a good feeling that you desire? From my experience this is precisely what is being requested. “I desire to feel good” There is nothing better for making you feel good than Hope!! However, that is all you will get!
If you truly desire the outcome you “hope” for, then I recommend dropping the word and choosing a more positive and affirmative request. I trust all is well in my world! I feel positive you will get what is coming to you. May all your dreams be true!
Do you get the idea? Come not from a place of Hope (doubt) but a place of Trust (faith). Know that your desires are met, the moment you express them. The form may be different than you imagined, but rest assured they are true in some form.
“Hope is a state of mind, not of the world. Hope, in this deep and powerful sense, is not the same as joy that things are going well, or willingness to invest in enterprises that are obviously heading for success, but rather an ability to work for something because it is good.” ~Vaclav Havel
Vaclav has a positive view of Hope and I wish to end on the positive. Hope is not bad, it is simply a feeling. If a feeling is what you desire then Hope is your word. If however you desire a tangible experience try using Trust or Faith. Know that our desires are real and this is your experience! Look deeply and you will see this truth. Be aware what you wish for, you will get it!
