Sometimes, we may want certain material things which we think will give us happiness. However, we must match their manifestation energetically, first. We must live in peace, love, joy, gratitude, etc., in order to manifest their material counterparts! Life happens, as they say. However, it is our emotional reaction to it that determines our how our life will proceed, at any given moment. We can make peace, love, joy, acceptance and/or gratitude our “go-to” emotion(s) – much the same as a computer has a default – regardless of appearances. Then, like that computer, Life will display, on its monitor, which we call life, that which was already ours.
