Kamand Kojouri
“I think, therefore I am?
No, I simply am.
I am. I am. I am.
I will still be if I didn't think. In fact, it is only then that I would step into a different dimension of consciousness.
Yes, I will still be if I didn't think. I will still be if I stopped breathing. I will still be because you still are. My words are written and you are receiving them. We are dancing. We are making love.
And when you stop reading them, they will still be because nothing ever truly ceases to exist. There is not a thing that is not. Every thought, energy, and vibration is recycled.
I am and I will continue to be because I manifest as the universe, therefore I will continue to manifest as the universe.”
Kamand Kojouri

“Herein lies the paradox: If you want more of whatever it is you desire, you have to first prove to the universe that you are capable of having it by developing a consciousness that affirms there is no shortage of it. The only way to do this is by creating a vacuum or space for it to be received, and the only way you can create a space for it to be received is by letting go of what you do have, trusting that the universe knows what it is doing. That's the law of circulation in action.”
