It has been said that if you are in a state of allowing, the things you are trying to create will come to you naturally and effortlessly.

But when you try to start on the journey of deliberate creation, you had to put in a lot of effort to change your habits, to force(or remind) yourself to do the daily required tasks (e.g meditation). So if even getting into a state of allowing requires this kind of effort, does it mean that the rest of the things after that require effort too?

As a clearer and practical example - You may be trying to manifest a new job and you succeeded in getting the job. But on the job itself, you have to put in effort to learn all the new stuff, and also to learn how to communicate with your colleagues etc. Then you might be in line for a promotion next, but the condition might be that you need to get a degree or certificate, and that alone requires quite some effort or work for most.

It is like, sometimes you manifested the opportunity/chance - but sometimes quite a bit or effort or work has to go into it after that. So can we really grab that opportunity/chance we manifested without putting in the effort?

Effort = stuff that you don't want to do that you have to do - often called Work.

Inspired Action = stuff that is fun to do and you enjoy doing it - often called Play

Effort is required when you have to overcome resistance i.e. compensate for lack of alignment.

When you are aligned with what you want, things feel like they come in an effort-Less way even if you do Inspired Actions towards them.

yep I meant is it possible to skip even the inspired actions/play ? Some things are possible while some just doesnt seem possible at all.

@kakaboo - Depends where your beliefs lie. If you believe action is required then action will be required

I first encountered this concept in Tom Sawyer by Mark Twain. Tom is put to work painting a fence. At first it's a chore, a drag, then a friend comes along and Tom acts like it is the most fun thing ever. His friends clamor to paint the fence, which ends up with three coats. Tom concludes that work is what you've gotta do, and play is whatever you don't gotta do :) That made a big impression on me as a girl!

The only entity that can manifest and/or create is God. He can give the gift to some, and He can certainly create and manifest things in people's lived if we are obedient, pray often and "stay in God", so to speak. I strive to be more like Jesus everyday.... He is my guide, friend, love and inspiration!
