If you are really good at it I suppose you could manifest yourself all kinds of financial security, the ideal relationship, and any manner of other things. But, when those are achieved is lasting happiness, fulfillment, and peace also achieved? Has this worked for anyone in bringing lasting contentment? More likely, what will happen is that something new will be desired in hopes that that will bring a greater sense of fulfillment. I think that at the core of all such desires is the desire for something lasting, and the pursuit of something lasting outside oneself is futile.

If what one TRULY wants is freedom and UNCONDITIONAL peace, fulfillment and happiness then there is no need to seek it through egoic/mind powers of manifestation, because you are already free. Discover the freedom first, then see if there is any desire to add anything else through manifestation (who would there be who is desiring anything when awakening has been revealed?). Then manifestation takes on more of a quality of playfulness for the sake of playfulness, rather than being a means for achieving a greater sense of completeness. Manifestation is then seen as simply the unfoldment of what is, and is not done by anyone in particular. In other words, manifestation is always happening but it is no longer egocentric.
