“Money is not my supply. No person, place or condition is my supply. My awareness, understanding and knowledge of the 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.”

Yesterday I made—what to me was a startling statement; “I am money.” I’m still shocked when I write it today and it makes me feel more uncomfortable the more I think of it. But I decided to leave it in just for that reason. When confronted with statements like this that have that affect on me I will live with it a while and contemplate and meditate on it for quite a while until I can see the truth or falsehood of the statement. Rejecting out right what disturbs me, which I used to do quite regularly, I have found can block the assimilation of new insights. My first thought is that because of all the negativity I have had around money is why the statement jars me and I want to reject it. I’m going to stay with it for a while and get back to ya on the topic.

How can it be that my supply depends on my “awareness, understanding and knowledge of the providing…Divine Mind within me as my supply.”?

Think of an electrical cord providing energy to whatever we connect it to. The wire itself is not the electricity that flows through it. It is the container for the electricity that is in it when connected to the source. Turning on the appliance, if the wire is in good working condition, all is well and good, but if the wire is damaged the appliance won’t work and the electricity may even be dangerous because it will look for a release in uncontrolled directions which could burn down the house or even kill you. The energy doesn’t care, it is impersonal. It just needs proper application through an conscious decision.

In a sense we are like this wire. We are connected to a Source of Power called God and this power is our very life energy. The difference between us and the wire is we are volitional beings and unlike the wire we choose how to use this energy. This is true of every being on the planet. We are connected to “…the Light of the world that lights every one who comes into the world.” However the majority of us are unaware we have this connection until we look for it. So we are unconscious of our ability to use and direct this energy for constructive ends. It is obvious we can’t use something we don’t know we have.

My becoming aware, conscious and knowledgeable of how to use this impersonal flow of Divine power gives me the means to purposefully use it to my benefit. An Awake Consciousness is unlimited because the consciousness of the universe—God—is unlimited. They are the same thing. The Divine Mind is the very consciousness provided to ALL people everywhere at all times. Once we

acknowledge this and know that we can direct it to any Good need we will be in the flow of the Holy Spirits activity in the world.

An electrical wire has no consciousness and can only be used when acted upon by an outside agent.

In our situation we are the conduit and the agent and by our choice we can actually increase or decrease the amount of energy flowing through us, like a rheostat between the source and the appliance. Through correctly applying the laws of this energy we can raise our level of consciousness, awareness and knowledge. These laws are found in all the spiritual literature’s of the world.

God keeps no secrets.

This is called ‘waking up’, ‘enlightenment’, ‘resurrection’, ‘right mind’ and just to be ornery, ‘no mind’.

When we are unconscious we are using this same energy destructively like a wire shorting out the energy becomes undirected and dangerous.

Our Awake Consciousness fixes this misuse of energy so it is once again able to supply our needs in Peace, Safety and Abundance.

Day 12 of 40 days of prosperity

” I lift up my mind and heart to be aware, to understand and to know that the Divine Presence I AM is the source and Substance of All my Good.”

I am continually brought back to my complete dependance on the Source of my Life. This source, the Divine, God, omnipresent water of life who is ALL Good, ALL the time is the only source of everything.

This Source is not static but in constant circulation. The Divine Energy is always “moving upon the face of the deep” ocean of its infinite Goodness. It is a Divine circle just as the water of the ocean evaporates in the warmth of the sun circulating through the either and pouring down to form the rivers flowing back to the ocean.

So to this energy flows through us as money as we then give it out after it has prospered us it then prospers everyone connected to the particulars of the situation.

Just as water in the rivers and the oceans gives life to everything it touches so to does money give support and growth within the situation it is given. Money is the Good, Divine, energetic, medium given us to prosper, an easy means of energy exchange.

Just think of how much energy you spend to make money. Then with that money you can redirect that same energy into places that will benefit others who are also investing their energy into making the things you want. This is the Buddhist teaching of interdependence.

However I must remember that money is not my source it is a representation of my Source just as bread is not my source of life because “Man does not live by bread alone but by every word that proceeds (flows) from the mouth of God.”

I lift up my heart and mind in gratefulness for ALL the manifestations of Divine abundance that will flow through me today.

Thank you God.

” I lift up my mind and heart to be aware, to understand and to know that the Divine Presence I AM is the source and Substance of All my Good.”

Day 11 of 40 days of prosperity.

Prologue; Mr Price says that this 40 day Plan involves going thru the previous ten affirmations four times. This is very important as we need to continually reprogram our minds away from the hypnotic programming we have received since birth. This is why I continually read many Holy books over and over again and also practice what I have read as best I can. This repetition will keep us centered, looking forward to our goal of accepting our unity with God and all Goodness.

He also points out; “Since you have already received an all-sufficiency of supply (all that Infinite Mind has is yours now), you can Prove this Truth to your deeper mind by sharing your supply on a regular basis while you are working with the Plan. Giving is an esoteric science that never fails to produce results if it is done with love and joy, because the Law will shower you with a pressed down and multiplied return. But if you tithe (and I really prefer ‘sharing’ to tithing) as a mechanical and calculated method to please God, unload guilt, meet a sense of obligation and play a bartering game with the Law, no one benefits–not even the receiver. Give with love, joy and a sense of fun and the windows of heaven will be thrown open with a blast.”

Now on to today’s meditation.

Although Mr. Prices affirmations will be the same my contemplations on them will be different, In-Joy.

“God is lavish, unfailing Abundance, the rich omnipresent substance of the Universe. This all-providing Source of infinite prosperity is individualized as me-the reality of me.”

Who am I? I cannot deny my own existence but somehow I don’t know who I am. The wise and holy saints and sages who have blessed us thru the ages point out to not know who I am is blindness. This “blindness” is self-imposed (with a lot of help from the world we live in). A while back I did a simple exercise, to write down all the phrases describing who I am: I am David, I am a son, I am a father, I am a caregiver, I am a husband, I am divorced, I am hungry….on and on and on with all the things that came to mind as the ways I identify myself until I could think of no more adjectives. I was left with the simple statement, I am.

Our entry into this world has blinded us to this essential fact of our existence.

At the root of everything that I think that defines me “I am” is the foundation. This of course echos the famous answer God gave to Moses when he was asked “Who should I say sent me?” “I am that I am” was Gods reply. This is no accidental definition or accidental similarity.

We are as God created us, Like God created us in every way. In Gods Image and Likeness. And Like God the Real us is incorruptible and in complete communication at all times with the Oneness of our Father Creator. And like all earthly fathers who give us their names God has given us His name. “I am.”

Every enlightened master I have read has said as much about themselves and about the rest of the human race. Jesus says; “Don’t you know that you are gods?” and “You are the Light of the world.”

Watching my thoughts throughout the day I have discovered that the ‘I am…” is the most repeated two words–or variations of–in my vocabulary. Pay attention to your conversation today and see if it isn’t so. Every ‘I’ statement is a recognition of this basic fact of our Oneness with God, the “I am that I am.” I am hungry.; I am going shopping.; I am going to the bathroom…..; on and on and on. The ‘I am’ is doing this, all of this.

So how about adding one more description; I am One with the Lavish God, unfailing Abundance, the rich Omnipresent substance of the universe. I am One with this All-providing Source of infinite of prosperity. I am the individualized Reality of God as me. In me and thru me.

“God is lavish, unfailing Abundance, the rich omnipresent substance of the Universe. This all-providing Source of infinite prosperity is individualized as me-the reality of me.”

“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.”

What attracted me to Mr. Prices approach to prosperity is his emphasis on God alone as the source of all abundance and that this abundant source is actually in me.

It is easier to accept that the omnipresent is present everywhere in the universe than it is to accept the fact that Gods presence is in me. But if this omnipresence dose not include me then God would not be omnipresent, there would be a hole in the universe where God does not exist. If it is possible for me to be excluded then there are billions of others in the same predicament. Gods so called omnipresence would be like Swiss Cheese. Full of holes and smelly.

Fortunately for the entire human race Gods omnipresence is like a breath of fresh air which surrounds us and is our very life. Air wouldn’t do much good if it stayed outside of us. It touches me all over inside and out. This oxygen is so important that without it I would end up very quickly in the next phase of my spiritual growth. This wind, this breath of God, this invigorating and energizing power surrounds me and permeates my whole being to a greater and more perfect extant than the air surrounding us. This is the Holy Spirit the giver and sustainer of life of which our physical air is but a mere shadow.

This God in me is the only cause of my prosperity and I depend on it for my very Life.

This Life wants to give me the kingdom. In this Kingdom there is no poverty only Abundance and I can have as much as I want, to accomplish all my desires for the enrichment of myself and the rest of humanity.

Abundance is designed to flow thru me as the energetic power of God just as air moves in and out through all the pours of my body.

“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 consciousness of the Spirit within me as my unlimited source is the Divine Power to restore the years the locusts have eaten, to make all things new, to lift me up to the high road of Abundant prosperity. The awareness, understanding, and knowledge of Spirit appears as every visible form and experience that I could possibly desire.”

Gods Holy Spirit in me is doing everything I will allow it to. Including leading me to want to allow it to do more. This “leading” is not a thing of force but the gentle guidance thru the forest of my false beliefs about abundance and the Spiritual Life. I am becoming more aware of the Abundance already given, the gratefulness for every visible and invisible demonstration of Gods Spirit working all the time for my benefit which connects to the benefit of others. There is no such thing as a personal benefit. The giving cannot be done with out a giver and a receiver. The mutual exchange of life in all forms is constantly flowing and my only real need is to be an open vessel to allow this to flow in and out of me. This is the experience of The Water of Life flowing thru the downspout.

As above so below, as within so without. I am the center in the experience where God has placed me. I live and move and have my being with other beings who are having the same Divine Experience. It is in this dance we are partners in Love, giving, peace and joy.

The Holy Spirit must bless me with abundance so I can bless others. God uses people. God is the motivator and supplier of all and all I need do is be open to the flow. This my experience now.

” My consciousness of the Spirit within me as my unlimited source is the Divine Power to restore the years the locusts have eaten, to make all things new, to lift me up to the high road of Abundant prosperity. The awareness, understanding, and knowledge of Spirit appears as every visible form and experience that I could possibly desire.”

Day 6 of the 40 days of prosperity.

“My inner supply instantly and constantly takes on form and experience according to my needs and desires, and as the Principle of Supply in action, it is impossible for me to have any needs or unfulfilled desires.”

What are my needs and desires? When I use the simple question; “What is this for?” and keep asking it until I reach to the very root of my desire the end result is that this object I believe will make me happy in some way by fulfilling its designed purpose. And yet I have found that the happiness I received was transitory and soon faded. After this happens enough times the disappointment pushes me to find a happiness that is more permanent.

As was shown to me earlier switching my priorities from things first to God first I can start with the things of the Kingdom of God which are Righteousness and Peace, and Joy in the Holy Spirit and from that foundation happiness will already be in me before the material things arrive.

A person at Peace,experiencing Joy and living rightly (righteousness) is a natural attractor of ALL good things. I become a magnate that attracts the good I desire NOW. from my inner pre-condition of love I live and move and have my being.

I am a magnet for all the good I desire and am attracting everything needed for my rich abundance to me manifested now. This flows from the Kingdom of God that is in me today. In Gods Kingdom time and space do not exist and this is where my true self lives. I now join with others in the mutual outpouring for the benefit of all.

As I give from my abundance I join with others giving from their abundance in a tidal wave of Life, Love, Peace and Supply of all needs met now. In Peace I surrender to you Lord to walk in Love and gratefulness.

My lesson for today from ACIM fit very well:

Lesson 251

I am in need of nothing but the truth.

I sought for many things, and found despair. Now do I seek but one, for in that one is all I need, and only what I need. All that I sought before I needed not, and did not even want. My only need I did not recognize. But now I see that I need only truth. In that all needs are satisfied, all cravings end, all hopes are finally fulfilled and dreams are gone. Now have I everything that I could need. Now have I everything that I could want. And now at last I find myself at peace.

And for that peace, our Father, we give thanks. What we denied ourselves You have restored, and only that is what we really want.

“My inner supply instantly and constantly takes on form and experience according to my needs and desires, and as the Principle of Supply in action, it is impossible for me to have any needs or unfulfilled desires.”

Day 4 of Forty days of Prosperity.

Thru my consciousness of my God-Self, the Christ within, as my source, I draw into my mind and feeling nature the very Substance of Spirit. This Substance is my supply, thus my consciousness of the Presence of God within me is my supply.”

Knowing who God is a reflected by Jesus during his life I can see that only good and abundance of life are mine right now today. It is Christ in me the hope of Glory. But why do I hope for what I already have? Christ in me is the answer and fulfillment right now today. So I can “take no thought for tomorrow.” I know the entire Substance of God is at my disposal for anything that comes my way today.

In Aramaic ‘Miltha’ is translated as ‘word’ and can also be translated as ‘substance’. “In the beginning was the substance. This substance was with God and was truly God. From the very beginning the substance was with God. And with this substance God created all things. Nothing was made without the substance…..This substance became a human being and lived with us.”

The entire human race is made from this very same substance. The human Jesus and the human race are all from the same source and this river of life flows thru me and is the supply of my life. I can depend of this God Creative Life for every endeavor, every perceived need and rest completely in the Peace of the River of Life that flows from the Throne of God. I am so connected to this source that I accomplish all things thru the joy and Love that I am one with. “Father let them be one as we are one.” How can I ever be separate from the Substance of ALL there is? God is ALL there is.

Thru my consciousness of my God-Self, the Christ within, as my source, I draw into my mind and feeling nature the very Substance of Spirit. This Substance is my supply, thus my consciousness of the Presence of God within me is my supply.”

May your day be Blessed with Gods abundant substance to meet every need.

God’s giving without measure

Golden_Ratio_6

God only does one thing-Give and his giving is always without measure, totally and completely ALL of itself ALL the time. The Spirit of God in us gives without restraint and never partially. This totality is available ALL the time never waivers and never changes in any way for any reason. Gods giving is total Love and completely Good ever abundant for our rich supply. Our place is to receive and give as much as we want without coercion or guilt but in Joy and Gratefulness.

“God is lavish, unfailing Abundance, the rich omnipresent substance of the universe. This ALL-Providing source of infinite prosperity is individualized as me-the Reality of me.” John Randolph Price.

God does only One thing-Give

Bird of Paradise at the SRF Garden

Bird of Paradise at the SRF Garden

Thats right and that is ALL God does. God is Life and life is never depleted in any way and only grows and prospers. To become more Godlike is to give. Have an attitude of generosity. As we give God is expressing Himself thru me as me in whatever manner I choose to give.

I was walking down the walk today by the beach and I spotted a shiny new penny on the ground and I passed it by. I had been doing some affirmations on abundance and God providing for all my needs but as I walked on the thought came to me the this penny was abundance from god and a symbol of his provision to me. I turned around and picked it up in gratitude and as I walked on i wondered what to do with it? then the thought came to me to add to it and give it away. I opened my coin pouch and found it was full of pennies so I added those to this one penny and then saw one who looked like a homeless man and offered them to him, for which he was very grateful. I said add to it and give it away.

Desire for the abundance we wish to receive must be preceded by an attitude of generosity. We are not to be like Scrooge who had an abundance of coins [he knew the rules of making money] but he did not know the rules of generosity. He had gained a fat bank roll but an impoverished spirit. A full and wealthy life is to first “Give, and it shall be given unto you: good measure, pressed down and shaken together and running over, shall men give into your bosom. For with the same measure that ye mete, therewith it shall be measured to you again.” Jesus Lk 6:38 One penny turned to twenty and who knows how large it will end up for the one needing it.

Remember “Giving and receiving are the same thing” according to A Course in Miracles

Abundance and reward are the nature of God who only does one thing.

I am a center in the Divine Mind

The Center

The Center

“I am a center in Divine Mind, a point of God conscious Life, Truth and Action. My Affairs are Divinely guided and guarded into right action, into correct results. Everything I do, say or think is stimulated by the Truth. There is perfect and continuous right action in my life and affairs. All belief in wrong action is dispelled and made negative. Right action alone has power and right action is power and Power is God…the Living Spirit Almighty. This Spirit animates everything I do say or think. Ideas come to me daily and these ideas are Divine ideas. They direct me and sustain me without effort. I am continuously directed. I am compelled to do the right thing at the right time, to say the right word at the right time, to follow the right course at all times.

All suggestion of age, poverty, limitation or unhappiness is uprooted from my mind and cannot gain entrance to my thought. I am happy, well and fulfilled with perfect life. I live in the Spirit of Truth and am conscious that the Spirit of Truth lives in me. My word is the Law unto its own manifestation, and will bring to me or cause me to be brought to its fulfillment. There is no unbelief, no doubt, no uncertainty. I know and I know that I know. Let every thought of doubt vanish from my mind that I may know the Truth and the Truth may make me free.”
