For those of you, unaware with Abraham, you can find a little backstory about Abraham, as well as Esther Hicks, Abraham's channel by clicking here. A lot of people say that channeled speakers are scam artists, but I feel that it's not the messenger that's important.. it's the message and leave it at that.
That being said, I've always found this particular lecture to be very very helpful. Abraham uses a really simple image (A Stream) to illustrate how we unnecessarily struggle in life.
Nothing you want is upstream.... for real!!
