“Inspired action is action that feels effortless and joyous and brings no stress.” —Abraham

“You are action oriented to your detriment. And we’re not trying to talk you out of action. We’re just wanting to talk you into Alignment first, and then inspired action.” —Abraham

“Find the feeling place, and then find the inspired action. Don’t offer action in order to try to make something happen.” —Abraham

“Action that comes from the feeling of inspiration is action that will produce good results, for you are allowing the Laws of the Attraction of the Universe to carry you.” —Abraham

“Your work is to go forth into this physical environment looking for things that are a vibrational match to joy, connecting to Source Energy, and then following with the inspired action.” —Abraham

“Action that is inspired from aligned thought is joyful action. Action that is offered from a place of contradicted thought is hard work that is not satisfying and does not yield good results. When you really feel like jumping into action, that is a clear sign that your vibration is pure and you are not offering contradicted thoughts to your own desire. When you are having a hard time making yourself do something, or when the action you offer does not produce the results you are seeking, it is always because you are offering thoughts in opposition to your desire.” —Abraham

“Your excitement is telling you that’s the next thing you need to do. Following your excitement is actually the shortest path to what you want.” —Bashar

“The rule of thumb is, you never take action when there is negative emotion within you because it will always be counterproductive. Always talk to yourself until you feel better and then follow the inspired action that comes from that open valve.” —Abraham

”Everything is happening now, now, now, now, now…So when you get an inspiration about something to do with someone else, the inspiration that you are getting is happening NOW. Not tomorrow when you have more time…NOW.” —Abraham

“When it’s inspired action, the whole of the Universe is flowing with you.” —Abraham

“If you find your alignment first, and then take inspired action that is spawned from that, then things go really really well for you.” —Abraham
