When you get to that "letting go" place, you will realize that the seed has germinated. You'll feel happy, but relatively neutral. Yes, you still have desires and preferences--you're alive and breathing, aren't you? It's just that you've removed direness from the equation, and that frees up a lot of energy that's convertible to pleasing manifestations. The funny thing is that, when they arrive, you're not quite as wowed as you once thought you'd be. I'm not saying you become jaded or anything. It's just that when your vibration has been consistently high for a while, the materialization of your desires seems more like a natural next step than a full-fledged jaw-dropping miracle. I suppose things just look different from various emotional altitudes.
