“Walsch reports You as saying, ‘God will grant whatever is asked, without fail.’ Whatever is asked!”
The trick is in “ask.” Not everything you “want” has been “asked” in the right way, with fulsomeness of soul.
“But then the statement is completely misleading. It depends on a verbal sleight of hand.”
Not so. Some might be confused by it, but it is a way of focusing attention on the right way to ask, to believe and feel fully, and to motivate this change in people. But it is not a lie, not even a Noble Lie. It is the direct truth. When you come into the fullness of Being, of partnership with God, everything you truly seek will be granted. That may seem like a bait and switch, but that is not the way you will see it when you get there. You will see that this is indeed what you really wanted all along.
