The Already Principle.


“From the very beginning, all beings are Buddha,” ~ Hakuin, a Japanese Zen Master

Imagine this possibility.

You already rock. You already are enough. You already are loved.

You already are.

Imagine that. You already are the person you most want to be. That person, whatever he/she is, is already alive and existing. It’s up to you, however, to live in a way that brings it to the surface, now. In this present moment. You have it now. There is nothing to acquire.

Continuing with the  “Life Loves You” theme, there is this chapter, Learning to Receive. Authors Louise Hay and Robert Holden talk about The Already Principle.

What the heck is that? Well… it’s pretty cool.

According to the authors:

The Already Principle reminds us of our true nature and the nature of reality. It teaches us that there is more to this world than meets the eye. Even in a world of fear, there is love. Even when you are in lack, there is abundance. Even when you experience conflict, there is peace. Even when you are alone, there is help. Even when you are confused, there is guidance. Everything you need is here, and it’s here now. 

You have already been given everything you need for your journey in this life. No matter what. You already have it all.

You may be wondering, “Well McDooogs, if I am already loved/awesome/enough, why don’t I feel it?”

To that, I have this lovely, Life Loves You book to go to for an answer. It says that if we dont “feel” that way now, it is because we are expecting it to happen in the future. That it isn’t something we think of as present tense… most of us see it is something that may or may not come, depending on circumstances, on things that haven’t happened yet.

But the trick is to realize it exists NOW, not in the future.

When you start living and believing that you are enough right this moment, life will start unfolding in ways that supports that. When you start living and believing that you are loved, right this moment, life will continue to unfold in ways that makes this truer and truer for you.

You don’t have to become anything. You already are.

Please. Tap into that shit.

Live it, and believe it. You’ll see it. In this present moment. And so will everyone around you. You don’t have to become enough. You already are. You don’t have to wait to be loved. You already are.

It’s here. Now. Right this second.

Sending love, hugs and butt slaps….
