Manifesting is impossible because God never created you as being of want. Why try to use the power of your mind to make something different in form, when form is the past? You think you can make a better version of the past? Do you think you can improve upon illusions, when the very meaning of illusion is nothing? How could you make a better nothing? You can’t! People ask, “How can you live your life if you’re not trying to make the world a better place?” It is easy, really easy. It is actually difficult to try to continue to mix metaphors and spiritualize matter. That is what manifesting is an attempt to do.
