“There’s a flow of the universe that I’ve grown to know. Just have to go with it.”—Will Smith
If you’ve ever installed an inkjet printer cartridge (and I KNOW you have since they seem to need replacing every 50 or so pages), you’ve undoubtedly noticed the installation message on your computer screen, the one that asks you to match up the five or six horizontal lines. You’re asked to pick which of these half dozen or so examples provides the very best alignment. The idea is that if the printer heads are properly aligned, you get clearer, crisper copy.
The same principle works in our manifesting lives. When we’re properly aligned, Source has no resistance. There’s nothing to keep the ink (or, in our case, the intention) away.
When the inkjets are properly aligned, everything flows smoothly, everything works.
Sadly, most of us spend much of our lives OUT of alignment. Instead of training ourselves for positive expectation, we slice and dice the apparent “what is.”
Our reasoning goes like this: “Show me the money” and then I’ll feel joy.
But that’s not how it works. That’s not how you align with Source.
You align with Source by feeling happy, by feeling joy no matter what. Instead of letting the “apparent reality” dictate your feelings, you line up with Source that knows nothing but peace, joy, perfect contentment.
When you continue to bemoan the fact the money’s not in your bank account, you deprive yourself of Source alignment. Source is nothing but pure joy and when you’re busy documenting and discussing “what appears to be” you are NOT fully lined up.
Jerry Hicks used to carry a card in his wallet listing goals he hoped to accomplish. Finally, when his understanding changed, he threw the card away, because he knew that whatever he needed or wanted would flow right in whenever he needed or wanted it.
Goals are only necessary until we get lined up with Source. Once that happens, once we get perfectly lined up with Source, things show up immediately.
In fact, alignment and enlightenment, a popular word in spiritual circles, are synonyms.
Once you’re aligned with source, you have everything. Everything.
So I repeat. The best way to line up your manifestation ink jets is to train yourself for positive expectation. The apparent “what is” is old news. The current news, the Reality of Source, is joy.
Ignore what doesn’t please you. It’s passé. It’s history. And it will cease to be once you line up those manifesting inkjets.

This is the best anaologies I’ve seen to explain alignment. It sures saves me a lot of time making lists. I used to do the all the time, but now things happen before I have time to make lists. I just do what feels right and things happen. 🙂
I think I want to meet Will Smith. I’ll align myself with that and see what happens!
This is perfect, Pam. I’ve dropped enlightenment fom of my vocabulary. I get it, but it can be a little far for some folks to reach. Alignment, however is perfect and a bit easier for people to grasp. Great post!
All great points, Pam (as usual) and I like the part where you pointed out that Jerry Hicks threw away his goal card; knowing that what he needed would “flow right in” at the appropriate time.
A Course in Miracles, seems to verify this idea in Lesson 135, when it says:
“A healed mind does not plan. It carries out the plans that it receives through listening to Wisdom that is not its own.”
But, in the meantime, the Course also points out the value of goal-setting for us lesser-evolved nummies — except that the world teaches it backwards:
“In any situation in which you are uncertain, the first thing to consider, very simply, is “What do I want to come of this? What is it for?” The clarification of the goal belongs at the beginning, for it is this which will determine the outcome. In the ego’s procedure this is reversed. The situation becomes the determiner of the outcome, which can be anything.” (ch.17).
Interpreting subsequent events as supporting the goal (vs. resisting it) must be the key, then.
Lester Levenson taught a similar idea:
“When you set a goal you encounter problems. And, it’s the idea of problems that makes achieving goals a problem. It isn’t the goal that is the problem – it’s the feelings that accompany the goal that cause the problem. Achieving goals doesn’t mean solving problems. Achieving goals means dissolving resistance.”
Oh man I LOVE this blog
