Balancing 3rd & 4th dimensions

QUESTION: Masters, I’ve been putting a lot of energy recently into mastering my own state of being instead of allowing circumstances to dictate my happiness. I’ve been trying to transcend judgment and duality. I get very excited at the idea of quitting my job to put all my time into creating art I love and make a living sharing what I love through craft fairs and other venues. I’m in charge of my life. I know you can’t tell me what to do. But I find it hard balancing the responsibilities of this life with following feelings of excitement. What if following excitement does not yet make financial sense? I want to quit and trust that all will work out if I follow what resonates, but I don’t want to be financially foolish or disrespectful of the financial arrangements I have made with my wife to be financially responsible. ~Christopher, United States

ANSWER: We have several comments about your statements. Sometimes circumstances do dictate your choices because you draw to your life the things you need to experience. You are correct that you have the ability to manifest that which you desire, and the more aware you are of your abilities, the easier it becomes.

Enlightenment, or complete awareness of your essence powers, comes once you rid your life of negativity via the end of the dependence on judgment from society’s ego. Evaluating the remaining lessons by determining if they resonate with you allows you to live in positive, unconditional love.

Once souls have completed the majority of the lessons they came to learn, the search for a passion starts directing their life. You have identified your passion and see that it “draws” you through life in a state of love and happiness. You have also chosen to assume responsibilities for others via a family. There can be a mixture of the two.

Start by continuing to create your art. Spend some weekends getting known at local art fairs and seasonal affairs. There will be a time when your art will take care of all of your needs, but it is not here now. Involve your family in your art; they can give you ideas of what appeals to them and their friends, and help you approach potential customers.

Visualize a time when your art will give you the financial return you need. At the same time, evaluate if you need as much financial income as you have become used to. You may see that it is easier to transition than you thought.
