The Greatest Conspiracy, but with Qualifiers!

The little boy sprinted towards the door, panting heavily and knocked hard on the door. The door opened and the boy asked, "Is it true?"

The Lord smiled and asked, "What is it my Child?"

"Lord, I heard about the greatest conspiracy in this universe", said the boy. "What have you heard ?, the Lord asked with a continued smile.

"When you really want something, all the universe conspires in helping you to achieve it", so said my sister, reading from Paulo Coelho' book", the boy replied.

And he continued, "I have been flooded with mixed feelings ever since I heard this. I have seen the converse of this being true in my own little world of experiences."

"I have had an instance where I had desired something, it was a life changing one, but really had not desired it with my full heart, for I was fearful that it would actually happen, and it didn't happen, by a whisker. That it did not happen by just a whisker, I could not attribute to anything but to the fact that I did not desire it with my fullest heart"

"Lord, please bless me into the deeper meanings. Is it indeed true that when you really want something, all the universe conspires in helping you to achieve it?"

"1: I’m sure it cannot be really wanting any desire, the desire has to be a righteous one for the universe to conspire into helping to achieve?

"2: And one has to be worthy and deserving enough of the desire? But desires are dreams, and dreams by nature know no bounds, so how are we to know the difference between plain greed or noble dreams when we start to nurture them?

The Lord continued to smile, as he read the boy’s mind , "So what is the third one, you have in mind, dear Child?"

"And surely, O' Lord, You want the desires to be pursued with compassion, love, nobleness and perseverance; and not with obsession or with a violent fury born out of frustration or with stubbornness. The desires have to have a righteous emotion attached, the end goals and the means have to be nobler"

"Tell me, Lord, your divine statements always come accompanied with suggestive qualifiers; so are these the qualifiers to this greatest conspiracy of yours?"

"My dear Child, I will say this for now. You are on the right path of enquiry. Continue with your self enquiry, when you really want something, all the universe conspires in helping you to achieve the answers you are looking for", said the Lord with a big smile and disappeared.

My thoughts and sentiments are similar to the little child, I told myself.
These spiritual messages are loaded and suggestive; they are to be fully understood by going deeper into their realms.

Like for instance, it is said that you have to have positive thinking and hope for the best but that does not grant an excuse for inaction or take away the responsibility of exercising due diligence or the need for putting your very best effort.

Yes, hope is good, but is it "True Hope" or "False Hope"- "True hope is based on reality whereas false hope thrives on sheer romanticism". Or "False hope" is like jumping off the cliff with the hope that God would save you, which is being plain foolhardy. Alas, in deep ignorance, the distinction between true hope and false hope gets blurred and one may act on false hope, but I suppose the spiritual law makes no allowances for the acts of ignorance. Just like the law of nature makes no allowance of the ignorance of a little child poking its fingers into a electric power outlet.

Yes, "When you really want something, all the universe conspires in helping you to achieve it". But this greatest conspiracy too comes with the qualifiers!
