“Through 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.”

Everything without exception is made out of something else, that is in its own right, not the thing we see. My desk is made from a pine tree. It is a beautiful solid knotty pine, and blond in color. It has dark brown knots and a swirling light to dark brown grain reminding me of the branches that used to grow from that place. The pine tree itself is made out of soil, air, water, sunshine and unseen to the naked eye chemical reactions of nutrients, minerals, two parts hydrogen and one part oxygen and the chlorophyl that transmutes light into energy joining the earth and sky plus, we contribute carbon dioxide so the tree can give us back some of its oxygen. Maybe one of you reading this contributed to the making of this desk, if you were in the forest next to the tree you are in my desk as well.

All of this and more went into my desk. What else, you may ask?

Someone looked at the tree and wanted to make some money to provide for his family. He harvests it, mills it and then another person, the lumber yard owner, buys it so the one desiring to make a living building desks can also buy it and fulfill his purpose in life. He had the desire long before the tree was even harvested.

My desk was made out of these things but there is more, much, much more than what I have mentioned here. So much more than can ever be listed in all the libraries in the world.

If we look deeply enough I can safely say without exaggeration that the entire history of the human race is contained in this one Pine Desk.

Being true of one pine desk it is also true of everything we see without exception. Including you and I.

At the foundation the woven fabric of the universe is the Substance—as was pointed out in a previous post—the Word/Substance of God.

Everything that is seen is made out of that which is unseen. “Faith is the substance of things not seen…” “It is Proof of what we cannot see…” (Heb. 11.1)

So many people believed they could make something out of this tree. Everyone was motivated because knew they could serve and get paid for their service.

This is the Buddhist teaching on emptiness. Emptiness means to be empty of an individual self. We are all made of the trillions of events that have now solidified into this substance through the consciousness of trillions of events formed into: a pine desk, me and you, this computer, the breakfast I am about to eat,etc., etc.

Energy makes this happen and remember money is energy, I am energy, I am money.

The only One single cause of everything is God. Other than that there is not another cause, all are effects and effects have no power. We tap into this original stream of creativity and it moves and works throughout our being for the benefit of ALL.

Acts 17:27,28 “…though He is not far from each one of us; for in Him we live and move and exist, as even some of your own poets have said, ‘For we also are His children.'”

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.”

“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 my Divine Consciousness. I am now aware. I am now in the flow.”

When I was a part of fundamental Christianity I did believe Jesus was in me thru the Holy Spirit and that God was personal–however I always thought this indwelling was separate and conditional. That the Holy Spirit would leave me if I didn’t behave “right”. I believed the ‘real’ me was the sinful body of death and had no part of God connected with it. The difference now is this thought has been turned right-side up. The Real Me is the one God created and God creates everything perfect and like God cannot be changed, is still in the image and likeness of my creator.

That which is covering up the light, the sinful body of death, is the basket that Jesus speaks of when he says; no one lights a lamp and puts it under a basket. It is this Light that is the God Self within me and not just me but ALL the human race and that is my total fulfillment.

God is everything I need and because God gives without restrictions, without holding back in anyway or for any reason.

I have “the knowledge that the Divine Activity of Abundance” is flowing thru me as me. I am one individual expression of the infinite Mind of God whos Holy Spirit is now working thru me.

I can relax and surrender in this knowledge. I walk thru this day in gratefulness and joy and abundance and peace and Love and righteousness. The kingdom of God is in me and surrounds me and radiates to everyone around me in Light.

” 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.”

“The Divine Consciousness that I am is forever expressing its true nature of Abundance. This is its responsibility, not mine. My only responsibility is to be aware of this Truth. Therefore, I am totally confident in letting God appear as the abundant all sufficiency in my life and affairs.”

Once I understand who God really is via the life and teachings of Jesus–his one purpose is to correct our perception of God the Father: That God does not hate us and only wants to give us Himself; dis-spell us of our dream that we are now or ever were, separate from this abundant, creative, Life of the universe.

When Jesus prayed we are to be one with the Father as he is one with the Father we become the answer to that prayer once the spell of separation is broken.

The lie of the ego/sin nature self is that God wants to “rob, kill and destroy us.” Jesus points out in John 10.10 that it is only a “thief” (ego/sin nature) who wants to do this but we think it is our “real” self and in fear project it onto God making us afraid of God. In doing so this thief has robbed us of our true connection, our oneness with God because we believe this lie. Let the spell be broken.

As pointed out in previous meditations (here and here) God does only ONE thing–give. Jesus as Gods representative tells us he came so everyone, not a chosen few would have life and have it abundantly.

Abundance in life, however I envision it, will be given to me. The question I need to answer is; is God a thief who wants to impoverish me or is God a generous, life affirming God, who wants us to have an Abundant Life? There is no compromise between the two. Because what agreement can darkness have with Light or a lie with the Truth?

“The Divine Consciousness that I am is forever expressing its true nature of Abundance. This is its responsibility, not mine. My only responsibility is to be aware of this Truth. Therefore, I am totally confident in letting God appear as the abundant all sufficiency in my life and affairs.”
