Week 24-Gold in the Mind

Thought is so vast, available, reasonable, & usable. Knowing this is “Truth”.

To express harmony, you must think harmony.

To express health, you must think health.

To express abundance, you must think abundance.

Our real work is to convince ourselves the “Truth” of these statements. All conditions are thought creations.

In the Silence Truth will be found…just convince ourselves the Truth we desire to see manifested.

Thought is a form of energy, a rate of vibration. A Thought of the Truth is the highest rate of vibration.

Truth is found in the Silence. Truth is manifested in one’s conduct & character.

When one realizes, understands, & appreciates the Truth that Creative Power is impersonal & one’s ability to think is one’s

ability to control it & make use of it for the benefit of one’s self & other people.

We are told this is the “Promised Land”.

Dr Shaklee said “Your future will be exactly what you decide”

Week 23-The 1st Law of Success is Service

Our greatest success will be achieved by recognizing we must ‘give’ to ‘get’.  Success is an effect. not a cause. We must see the cause, idea or thought by which the effect is created.

The 1st Law of Success is service built on integrity  & justice.  Money consciousness is an attitude of the mind. To become a money magnet, one must make money for other people.

If we recognize Omnipotent Power that is  the source of all supply, we will adjust our consciousness to this supply in such a way to attract allall that is necessary and we will find the more we give the more we get.

Since thought is the creative energy behind every constructive enterprise, there is nothing of more practical value of our thought.

Week 22-Spiritual Seeds

Thoughts are spiritual seeds. Here we are again back to cause and effect. When planted in the subconscious mind will sprout and grow. So we are responsible for  where and what we are today. We would certainly want to have green thumbs for this mental garden. What are we thinking, what are we creating & what is the harvest to be?

A thought charged with feeling becomes an idea in the subconscious.  With repetition & feeling it will be planted. Watering this garden with gratitude, kindness, joy, happiness and service will help keep out the weeds of fear, worry, care, anxiety, jealousy, hatred & every other destructive thought.

Make a mental image of physical perfection,  then hold it in the mind until it is absorbed by the conscious. Visualization has been found to be effective.

The cause is always found in  the “world within”; by changing the cause, the effect is changed.

I am getting help and I am sooo grateful. I had been listening to Wattles on my phone. It was time to leave and I put my phone in my purse and flipped the flap over to close.  My purse started talking. It was Wayne Dyer reading his book on meditations. It was beautiful and so appropriate.  I have listened a few more times & will do again.

Week 21- Power of Prayer- Power of Silence

The consciousness of power comes from the Universal Mind. Each individual is a channel. Our ability to think is our ability to act on this Universal Energy & therefore produce or create. Silence offers an an ever available opportunity.

The more conscious we become of out unity with the source of all power, the greater will be our power to control and master every condition.  Silent thought  concentration is the true method of reaching and then expressing the wonderful power of the world within.

The assignment was to be silent for a period of time to discover my gifts. My grandchildren described it as going ‘dark’.  It was early Thurs evening before I was able to start because of commitments. I was able to do this in my own home with the help of Leroy.  I kept silent until Sunday morning. The very first thing I learned about myself was that I talk to myself out loud. I was able to spend time in my hot house and meditate to still my soul. It felt really good not to have to do anything. I was able to ‘sit’ for an hour at a time and the time would go by so quickly. I did my readings and exercised too. I can’t say I had any break through.  Sunday morning I just felt lighter when I walked down the stairs. I had no fear going into the silence and will find time to do it again. Interesting that one of my granddaughters was really happy that I was no longer silent.

Prayer chains are common is many churches. We hear of many miracles. My prayer is simply  the highest good for all concerned. Today I live for the highest good for all concerned. I look beyond judgments to see the good.

 

Week 20-Silence

Dr Forest Shaklee said in his book on Thoughtsmanship,

“What we think we look,

What we think we do,

What we think we are.”

I have been hearing that for almost 40 years. Now it is all coming together.  “In Him we live and move & have our being.” Crafting our thinking is all important.  To adjust our thought processes to the will of the Universal; to cooperate with Natural Law.

Silence is necessary-the senses must be stilled, the muscles relaxed, repose cultivated. What does repose mean? Repose means the cessation of activity, sleep, peaceful state,stillness, tranquility.

#8 “When you begin to perceive that the essence of the Universal is within yourself, you begin to do things; you begin to feel your power, it is the fuel which fires imagination; which lights the torch of inspiration; which gives vitality to thought; which enables  you to connect with all the invisible forces of the Universe; to cooperate with Natural Laws.  It is this power which will enable you to plan fearlessly to execute masterfully.”

#9  “But perception will come only in the silence. Imagination is your workshop.”

This power of thought can be the greatest labor saving device ever dreamed of & when we learn to recognize it, not only in ourselves, but in all of us, events, things & circumstances, we will have found the “Kingdom of Heaven” which we are told is “within us”   How beautiful!

Why would one not want to spend time in silence???

Week 19–Vital Force

The vital force is a primary force which manifests  through living bodies and will express the highest degree of mental, moral  & spiritual efficiency.  By developing the vital force one will soon develop the sense of power which has ever been the distinguishing mark of genius.

In seeking truth, we are seeking ultimate cause. If we find that this cause is one which we can consciously control, the effect of the experience will also be within our control.

Mind is the only principle which is operative in the physical, mental, moral & spiritual world.. If you thought is powerful, constructive & positive, it will be evident in your state of health, business & your environment.

 

All wealth is the offspring of power. All power is not only physical power. There is also  mental, moral & spiritual power. Thought is the vital force or energy which is being developed and which has produced such startling results in the last 50 or so years as to bring about a world which has changed so much.

Creative energy originates in the Universal but the Universal can manifest only through the individual.

Someone once said, “Life is divided into three term: That which was. which is, and which will be.  Let us learn from the past to profit by the present, and from the present, to live better for the future.”  “The Creative Intelligence provides the thought process. The Creative Energy provides the power, but only you can direct that power” says Forest C Shaklee in his book Reflections on a Philosophy.

Week 18–Law of Attraction

Thought is being liberated and truth is rising full robed before an astonished multitude according to Haanel.  He says that the whole world is on the eve or a new consciousness, a new power and a new realization within self.

Mind is the indwelling & ultimate and is imminent in matter and in spirit. It  is the  the sustaining all pervading Spirit of the universe.  Every living thing must be sustained by this omnipotent Intelligence.  Universal Intelligence permeates all things ready to be called into action. The individual is simply the channel.

Mental vibrations respond only the extent of their vibratory harmony–likes attract likes. In the spiritual world no effect can be produced until the seed is sown & the fruit will depend on the nature of the seen. Thought is the energy which the law of attraction brought into operation, which eventually manifests in abundance.

The Universal Mind manifest itself in the objective, through the principle of attraction that each atom has for every other atom, in infinite degrees of intensity.

Emerson says ‘ There is no thought in my mind but it quickly tends to convert itself into a power & organizes a huge instrumentality of means.”

Week 17-Symbols for Reality?

The greatest science–that of the mind is only revealed through concentrated effort.

 

True concentration is to conscious of nothing else and will lead to intuitive perception & immediate insight into the nature of the object concentrated upon.  Ease and perfection are gained by repetition. The mind is an engine whose power is undreamed. Thought is an omni-working power, ruler & creator of all form & all event occurring in form.  Physical energy is nothing in comparison with the omnipotence of thought because thought enables man to harness all other natural power.

In 34, 35, 36 Haanel says to always concentrate on the ideal as already existing fact.

We must realize and learn not to mistake symbols for reality. We want to be interested in causes, rather than effects.  We want to concentrate on the realities of life and them we will not be disappointed in results.

Week 16 – Power to Create

The power to create depends entirely on spiritual power with 3 steps:

  1. Idealization
  2. Visualization
  3. Materialization

We can form our own mental images though our own interior processes of thought excluding all outside conditions. With the exercises of this power, we can control our own destiny, body, mind & soul. WOW!

Through an understanding and conscious operation of spiritual laws, we can convert every seeming difficulty into a blessing.

When we see that thought precedes and determines actions, we see “cause & effect”. The human experience is the result of an orderly and harmonious experience.  To control thought is to control circumstances, conditions, environment & destiny.

The vitality depends on the feeling with which the thought is impregnated.  IF the thought is constructive, it will have vitality and will grow, develop & expand and attract to itself everything necessary to manifest.

We want to realize harmony  & happiness are states of consciousness and do not depend on the possession of things.

 

 

We will then have found “truth” which makes us “free” from every lack or limitation of any kind.                                                                                                                                                                      –

Week 15-Thought and Harmony

Vitality must be infused with love. Love is the product of the emotions. So the emotions must be controlled & guided by the intellect & reason.

hearts

So love imparts vitality to thought & this enables it to germinate (grow). The Law of Attraction & the Law of Love, being the same, bring to it the necessary material for its growth and maturity.

The first form which thought finds is language, or words. It is really important that we learn to craft our words carefully.  The creative power of thought  places an invincible weapon in ones hands & makes one a mastery of destiny.

The subconscious can not reason. It takes us at our word.  If our thought is constructive and harmonious we manifest good; if it is destructive we manifest evil.  Insight must be exercised so that the thought we dwell upon contains no mental, moral, or physical germ which do not want manifested in our lives.

telescope

Insight is a kind of telescope enabling us to understand difficulties & possibilities in any undertaking.  It helps us to be prepared & enables us to turn our thoughts in the right direction.  Knowledge does not automatically apply itself.  Insight helps us understand the value of applying the knowledge we gain.

The degree of harmony is determined by our ability appropriate to what we require for our growth from each experience.  The Law of Love which is the creative principle of the Universe, imparts vitality to the thought & the Law of Attraction brings what is necessary by the Law of Growth.

It boils down to that we reap what we sow is scientifically exact.
