Everyday Grace …from Marianne Williamson says: ‘According to the ancient Egyptians, the purpose of our lives is to PRESERVE ORDER IN THE COSMOS. And we do this by preserving order within ourselves. Each one of us is – quite literally, according to modern science – the center of the universe!’
Ralph Waldo Emerson said: ‘Of what use to make heroic vows of amendment, if the same old lawbreaker is to keep them’.
What does that mean? The LAW is the LAW of the universe…those LAWS which
are immutable….TRUTHS of how LIFE WORKS.
Remember, REGARDLESS OF HOW THE RESULTS OF YOUR LIFE MAY PRESENTLY APPEAR TO YOU, YOU HAVE TRULY BEEN ‘BORN RICH’. God’s gift to you is more talent and ability than you will ever use in one lifetime. Your gift to GOD is to develop and utilize as much of that talent and ability as you can in this lifetime.
We have the ABILITY to c-r-e-a-t-e A PICTURE in our minds of WHAT WE WANT TO BECOME….when we WRITE a description of THE PERSON WE WANT TO BECOME, and mix it with EMOTION, we actually create that picture in our lives.
TAKE THE TIME NOW TO MAKE A WRITTEN DESCRIPTION OF THE PERSON YOU ARE ABOUT TO BECOME.
One of the LAWS is about FAITH. See yourself as a perfectly endowed spiritual instrument without limitations. When you do, you will find it EASY, in fact, NATURAL to EXPECT the good that you DESIRE and you will also understand that DOUBT simply obstructs the unfoldment of PROSPERITY in your life.
Doubt does not shut down the workings of this POWER. The power is always working perfectly. The doubt you hold becomes the picture which will turn into your physical results.
Many have been guilty of allowing your sales RESULTS, your bank account, or the x-rays the doctor takes of your body to control the way you feel, think, or view your sales results, financial position or health. I can assure you that – just as certain as its going to get dark tonight – there will not be any marked improvement in your life in any of these areas…..UNLESS, if you will let the present physical results serve only as an indication of the IMAGES WHICH YOU HAVE BEEN HOLDING IN THE PAST ….and then you look into the bright future and build an image of the good that you desire….IF YOU DO, YOU WILL SEE THE IMAGE MATERIALIZE. (If however, you continue to let your present or past results control your thinking process, YOU WILL NEVER LIVE TO SEE YOUR DREAMS COME TRUE.)
LOOK up, look ahead and FORM THE IMAGE of the life you choose to live; then everything you touch or come in contact with will grow and expand and express itself in a greater and greater way.
Bob Proctor talks about the Terror Barrier…and remember that when the FEELING of terror comes into your life, it DISTORTS the picture of your positive future. That is when the DOUBT and FEAR take over, and that BEAUTIFUL PICTURE of your positive future is compromised. HOW THEN, CAN WE HOLD ON TO THE PICTURE we have CREATED of our FUTURE SUCCESS?
Bob talks about repetition, repetition, repetition. In exercise, is the repetition that makes it work! If you do ONE SET of something and then leave it, the MUSCLES DO NOT HAVE MEMORY to continue onward, and the UNBROKEN HABIT PATTERN takes over. WHEN WE GET TO THE POINT OF BREAKING THROUGH that TERROR BARRIER, we hit a WALL OF FEAR….DOUBT, and ANXIETY…
Bob suggests that we get our PICTURE CLEARER! We hold steadfastly to the IMAGE we choose! THAT IS WHY WE BUILD ON A DREAM!
Remember the JOYFUL EXPERIENCES in your life? The Births, the weddings? The IMAGE OF THE JOYFUL EXPERIENCE WAS SO IN YOUR MIND. Little girls’ fantasy of their wedding starts at a young age…they SEE THEMSELVES IN THEIR DRESS, THEY FEEL THE JOY, SMELL THE FLOWERS, AND HEAR THE MUSIC…it is a scenario which is played out over and over and over, and then, on the MAGIC DAY…it is re-enacted ….It is CREATED IN OUR REALITY. Do you remember the JOYFUL EXPECTATIONS you had around this scenario??
THAT IS WHAT ‘THE SECRET’ is all about. SEEING THE IMAGE IN OUR MINDS, FEELING THE FEELINGS ASSOCIATED WITH THAT IMAGE, being in a place of incredible GRATITUDE, HARMONY AND TRUST, (also known as FAITH), all the while, E-X-P-E-C-T-I-N-G it to happen!
As magnetic force fields, we are able to ATTRACT through our FEELINGS. The admonition to ACT AS IF is the key to our success.
We live in a world of LAWS…these are not ARBITRARY…One of the LAWS is the VACUUM LAW OF PROSPERITY. It is the one, ‘empty and be full’! Many of us know of it as cleaning out our closets…when we release those clothes we have not worn, and give them away, NEW ONES come into our space….things that we CHOOSE. Things that FIT US PERFECTLY..
Many times we HOLD ON TO RESENTMENTS (clothes that do not fit), DOUBTS, FEARS, AND MEMORIES OF PAST FAILURES. These are the WEIGHTS of the world. Allow yourself to CREATE THE VISION IN YOUR MIND OF THE FEELINGS OF YOUR HIGHEST AND GRANDEST VERSION OF THE GREATEST VISION YOU CAN ‘see’. Keep that vision in your mind’s eye…FEEL IT, SURROUND YOURSELF WITH OTHERS WHO SHARE YOUR ENTHUSIASM (greek: En-thos)…in God…
The reason we HOLD ON TO OLD THOUGHTS AND FEELINGS, is because we LACK THE FAITH to create a NEW WORLD. Think about it….your FAITH will make you WHOLE. What does that mean? The forward thinking one SEES A FUTURE FOR his life….THE ONE LIVING IN circumstances, CONTINUES TO CREATE HIS OWN DEMISE.
Draw a line down the middle of a page. Make a list of a few concepts you have held which you now recognize as obstructions to a prosperous life. On the other side of the page, make a list of the concepts you CHOOSE to hold to be true! Remember, REGARDLESS OF HOW THE RESULTS OF YOUR LIFE MAY PRESENTLY APPEAR TO YOU, YOU HAVE TRULY BEEN ‘BORN RICH’. God’s gift to you is more talent and ability than you will ever use in one lifetime. Your gift to GOD is to develop and utilize as much of that talent and ability as you can in this lifetime.
Thomas Troward said, ‘If you think your thought is powerful, your thought is POWERFUL!’
Choose your thoughts well today. CREATE YOUR PICTURE, FEEL INTO IT, AND EXPECT IT TO TRANSPIRE!
