Hi everyone. Today is the fourth day of the Annual Season For Nonviolence. Each day of the 64 days between January 30th (Assassination of Mahatma Gandhi) and April 4th (Assassination of Martin Luther King Junior), is dedicated to a simple practice or thought which will help us to become more conscious of the peacefulness inside each of us. I was given this list on Sunday at my Church (The San Diego Center for Spiritual Living) and I would like to pass these thoughts on to you.

Here we are in week two and here are 7 more daily practices starting with yesterdays Feb. 9th. In-Joy

Day 11 Today I will look beyond stereotypes and pejudices.

Day 12 Today I will choose to be aware of what I talk about and I will refuse to gossip.

Day 13 Today I will live in the present moment and release the past.

Day 14 Today I will silently acknowledge all the leaders throughout the world.

Day 15 Today I will speak with kindness, respect,and patience to every person that I talk with on the phone.

Day 16 Today I will affirm my value and worth with positive “self-talk” and refuse to put myself down.

Have a great week.

Day 40 of the 40-Day Prosperity Plan

Well I made it. At the beginning I had my doubts about committing publicly to doing this 40 day prosperity plan however as it turns out it was my thoughts of you, my readers, that has kept me going until the end. So thank you for participating with me and joining my journey in exploring new thoughts of creativity and prosperity. Your likes and followings have kept me encouraged along the way. This is not the end of course but a beginning in the continued application of what I have learned until I have reached full mastery of the topics covered in theses past forty days. As one follower reminded me in her blog we are on the path from “Glory to Glory.”

” I keep my mind and thoughts off “this world” and I place my entire focus on God within as the only cause of my prosperity. I acknowledge the Inner Presence as the only activity in my financial affairs, as the substance of all things visible. I place my faith in the Principle of Abundance in action within me.”

“…my entire focus on God within…” The Spiritual path requires nothing short of complete capitulation to God. Every religious tradition I’ve read agrees on this point. Total, unequivocal, surrender.

On this last formal day of working the Plan each morning, it is right to know, this past 40 days is just the beginning. What I have learned is, this is a continual process of dedication to God alone and constant observation of ALL that is right in my world now.

How I see my world and how I see God are the same. The God I surrender to is the one of Love and only Love. The God who “requires mercy and not sacrifice.” The God who says “cast your cares on me because I care for you.” She is the constant provider of ALL Grace, Truth, Joy, Peace, Comfort, Guidance, Abundance, All under the heading of Love.

“…the stern, condemning, dictator-God fell from the sky along with his big black book listing our sins and shortcomings. The man-made god was dead, and in its place was the Universal Reality of love that had been present with us, in us, and as us from the beginning.” from, The Superbeings.

Choose this day whom you will serve, the worlds god of poverty, condemnation, sin and death or the God of Abundance, Forgiveness and Life.

The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I came that they may have life and have it abundantly. John 10.10

The God I see wants to show me everything that is right with me, every good thing in me and my world. All of the things that are lovely, beautiful, good and true. The constant splendor of overflowing abundance right here in front of my face. This God wants to open my eyes to see the Kingdom of God paved with streets of gold and verdant pastures and the tree of Life. This and an infinite variety of Good is All that is Real and is in me and through me, surrounds me and is me. I am a Son of God, God expressing herself here and now.

Again thanks and blessings to all of you. I shall be gone for a couple of days to Mexico for a photo shoot. I’ll post again when I get back.

Day 39 of the 40-Day Prosperity Plan

“When I am aware of the God-Self within me as my total fulfillment, I am totally fulfilled. I am now aware of this Truth. I have found the secret of life, and I relax in the knowledge that the activity of Divine Abundance is eternally operating in my life. I simply have to be aware of the flow, the radiation, of that Creative Energy, which is continuously, easily, and effortlessly pouring forth from my Divine Consciousness. I am now aware. I am now in the flow.”

“What is right with you?”

“You should acknowledge what is right with you everyday and the good will grow.” both quotes from; Superbeings by John Randolph Price.

What is right with me is everything right here and right now. There is nothing wrong with me.

” I am aware of the God-Self within me as my total fulfillment.” YES.

So much of these past 38 days—I’m counting yesterday because yesterday was the breakthrough—were spent in focusing on what I thought was wrong in my life and that those things outside needed to be changed. But no. Nothing outside of me needs to be changed—my total fulfillment has always been and is always with me. I am right now standing in the presence of ALL Mighty greatness. I am innundated by the tsunami of Love. There is nothing else I need.

“What is right with me?” Absolutely everything. Even the things I think are “wrong” with me are right with me. I can completely relax in this ocean of Abundance. Everything that I need and want are here now.

Thank you God—no worries, no fears, no tension, no stress. Do I want it? Well go get it.

Yes it is Gratefulness that has opened my eyes to see the Abundance of riches available in the Kingdom of God. God’s timing is always perfect. Being in the flow is knowing that when something is needed it will be there at the right time and place in the perfection that is God.

The Abundance of everything.

Thank you God.

Day 35 of The 40-Day Prosperity Plan

“Money is not my supply. No person, place or condition is my supply. My awareness, understanding and knowledge of the All-providing activity of the Divine Mind within me is my supply. My consciousness of this Truth is unlimited, therefore my supply is unlimited.”

How I interpret outward circumstances is my clue to understanding my consciousness. Facts themselves are just facts. The number 4 is neither good or bad, it is just a fact. Four oranges are just four oranges, it is neither good nor bad. If you hate oranges and that is all you have to eat are four oranges good, bad or tolerable? Yes it is our thinking (consciousness) that make it so.

Outward circumstances: abundance or lack of money, persons, places or conditions are just the facts of the moment. Four dollars in my bank account is what ever I make it to be is the same as four hundred thousand, both amounts can be perceived as meeting my needs or not enough. It has been pointed out that there are extremely wealth people who never have enough.

Switching to a higher level of consciousness, outward conditions are not my supply. God is my supply and the substance of God is already supplied to me. There is no lack in God, no limitation whatsoever and it is all around and in me. God always gives in full measure and we continually receive in this moment everything we need.

I see buckets of good in unending quantity full of everything I need for the accomplishment of my desires. God is the source. God is the activity of my Divine Mind working in and through me for the benefit of all concerned.

This is my awareness, understanding and knowledge. I know that my redeemer lives and is living in me.

This is the fact above all appearances. There is nothing I can do about a fact. I can adjust my thinking to this fact, accept it and use it or not. Whether I eat the oranges or not makes no difference, I can be full or go hungry. As for me I will be full and Live in this abundance.

Day 33 of The 40-Day Prosperity Plan.

“I am Conscious of the Inner Presence as my lavish Abundance. I am conscious of the constant activity of this mind of infinite prosperity. Therefore my consciousnesses is filled with the Light of Truth.”

To be mindful—have my mind full of the Inner Presence to be constantly aware of God in my life, of the Holy Spirit: the Teacher, the Comforter, the Healer, the Provider that is already in me and who wants to work through me. This Spirit wants to and is guiding my desires for the fulfillment of my life. My life is a blessing to me and a blessing to others. A blessing to me so I can give what I have been given.

This “constant activity” is propelling me on and providing encouragement, for it is courage I need to step out and move forward into my dreams, knowing I am not alone in my endeavors because God is not only working in my life but also in the lives of others who can benefit from my life and the services I have to offer.

This Infinite Mind—Infinite Creativity—will have no problems helping me to create my life the way I want it. There is a passage in the New Testament: Philippians 2.13for God is at work in you, both to will and to work for his good pleasure.Those things I want to do, are a blessing to others, placed in me by God according to the talents he has given me. This is the will/desire part then the “to Do” part, the manifesting, bringing into the world that which has been willed by God and me. God’s will is always Good and a blessing for everyone.

Thank you, God.
