Day 21 of 40 day Prosperity Plan

For those of you who have recently joined me on my Prosperity journey, this is inspired by The Abundance Book by John Randolph Price. His forty day plan involves 10 meditations repeated 4 times. These posts are the journaling he recommends we do following each days meditations.

“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.”

On day fourteen I was contemplating our physical being and how it was made out of other things that in themselves are not our physical being. That who I am and also what everything else is, is made from trillions of things that are not us. That everything is empty of an individual self, and yet somehow this other stuff has all congealed into what we experience in the physical.

We are also mental and Spiritual beings. The physical is the lowest energetic vibration in what we ‘see’ or ‘think’ of as ‘solid’. Molecular science points out we are not solid but are made from a whole universe of space in a microcosm of constant movement. It turns out we are not solid at all.

The next level up in the ladder of consciousness is the soul level. This is made of things we do not see; mind, will and emotions. This ‘soul’ is also made of trillions of things–thoughts are ‘things’ on the mental level. to demonstrate this to yourself pay attention to your thoughts and see if you can have two thoughts occupying the same mental space at the same time. If you have spent anytime in meditation you will have discovered that one thought follows another just as cars follow each other on the freeway. You will also discover that you can go between each thought to a place of ‘no thought’.

In the physical world there are accidents when two cars try to occupy the same space but in the mind there are no accidents it is only because thought moves so fast they seem to be simultaneous. Our mental life is also made up of millions of thoughts that are not us. I am not these thoughts I’m writing today. I am not all the thoughts that flow through my mind each second. I am not what I think I am. Zen Buddhism’s “no Mind is a place free from the tyranny of thought. The place of transcendence of the mind where we can understand immediately and directly without the interpretation of thought. This place is the “….Reality of Me.”

In Christianity this is called the “Mind of Christ”, as Paul says “have this mind in you which was also in Christ Jesus.” The Spiritual Mind—The Reality of Me—is on the Spiritual level which is not the ‘me’ of the body or the mind it is the ME as created by God who individualized itself as each one of us. This Real Me is all those qualities we use to describe God in positive terms: Loving, Good, Peace, Joy, Abundance, Unlimited, All knowing, All Powerful, All Present, Light.

Meister Eckhart calls this Real Me the Aristocrat. Here are a few things he says about this Aristocrat: “He is taken up with the Love of God.” “He has forgotten the things of this temporal life and has been caught up into the likeness of God, having become a child of God. there is no higher grade, nothing beyond this. It is eternal rest and blessing–the end of the inner new man, eternal life.” God’s Son or Idea is like a flowing spring in the core of the soul.”

He starts out his essay this way: “Our Lord says in the gospel [Luke 19.12] ‘A Certain noble man went into a far country to receive for himself a kingdom, and to return.’ In these words our Lord teaches how noble man is by nature created and how divine, by grace, he may aspire to be. This is the point of a major part of the Holy Scripture.”

“The Reality of Me.”

Day 7 of 40 days of Prosperity.

“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.”

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 3 of the 40 day prosperity plan

Plumeria-3152

“I am conscious of the inner Presence as my lavish Abundance. I am conscious of the constant activity of the Mind of infinite Prosperity. Therefore my consciousness is filled with the Light of Truth.”

The Abundance of the song of Peace. This consciousness of the Presence of God at the center of my being brings Peace, joy, and prosperity in every area. This why it is so important to know who God is. See previous post here here. Our concept of God is the most important thought we can have. It is what guides our every thought and subsequent actions. In this knowledge we can be at peace only if our concept of God is one of Peace. We will have no enemies if the God we believe in is never threatened and therefore has no enemies. We will not want to attack anyone if the God we believe in does not have vengeance in his heart. How can we be in poverty if the God we believe in is always giving? How can we defraud or hold back from anyone if the God we believe in is always giving? Does the God we believe in give lavishly for any need of life? Do we need Peace, Love, Forgiveness, Mercy, Justice, Faith, Wealth a full bank account, Joy?

“…how much more will the heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to those who ask him!” The Holy Spirit is the Kingdom of God and is God working in us to give us All of The Kingdom, as much as we can receive. Ask and receive, seek and find, knock and open because God can do a lot better and more abundantly the those of us who are evil. Luke 11;9-13

Can anything ever be lacking in the Kingdom of God? No.

“I am conscious of the inner Presence as my lavish Abundance. I am conscious of the constant activity of the Mind of infinite Prosperity. Therefore my consciousness is filled with the Light of Truth.”

I looked up the derivation of  ‘Abundance’ in the “Online Etymological Dictionary”… from Latin abundare “overflow, run over,” from Latin ab- “off” (see ab-) + undare “rise in a wave,” from unda “water, wave”

A “Lavish Abundance” could mean a big wave maybe a tsunami of goodness flowing into our lives. Is this what Jesus meant that we would receive ‘overflowing’ as a result of our giving.

Or in John 7.38  ‘Out of the believer’s heart shall flow rivers of living water.’”

Blessings and peace

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.

Thought for the day

Is this a true statement?

“In the Scriptures God says,

“I swear by my very life

that everyone will kneel down

    and praise my name!”

Rom 14.11

Send Peace

Send Peace.

 Today I’d like to continue with my thoughts about Boston. How are we to be at peace with our “enemies”?

The first and most important part is to be at peace with our selves. After all we can’t give what we don’t have. Once we have decided to pursue this course and we begin to surrender our fears to God and ask for His help peace will begin to settle into our lives. This is a continual process of growth wherein we begin to see the cause of our anxieties are rarely outside of us. The more we become at peace with our inner shadow many things will no longer trouble us. It is thru the process of surrender to God and forgiveness of ourselves and others we will begin to experience the “Peace that surpasses understanding.”

The next step is to begin to give this peace away. Peaceful people do this automatically and not always consciously but by just being at peace they radiate it out to the world. However there will arise situations that require a conscious prayer a “sending of peace” into situations that trouble us.

Because of our journey in discovering our shadow side and finding peace and forgiveness with it we can now relate to the anger and hatred of others and apply the same remedies for them as we applied to ourselves: surrender and forgiveness.

One of the reasons I like the Aramaic translations of the New Testament is the beauty of the poetry and the poignancy of the message becomes so much more obvious. In Roth’s translation of Romans 15:33-16:23 (Netzari Press 2009) he uses the phrase, “send peace” 21 times and twice the phrase “Elohim of Peace.”

His footnote on the phrase is very illuminating: “Often rendered as “salute.” However shalo b’ shlama literally translates as send (through) peace. “Shalom”—the same word—can also mean “hello, goodbye and peace”, but shalo b’ shlama carries a more profound significance in that each one extends and participates in the blessings and prosperity of each other both material and spiritual [italics mine]….Rather, by using this term we are extending peace, reassurance and our love and sending it their way.”

Of course Paul was writing to people of a congregation of Christians in Rome and sending peace to them but there is nothing that says we can’t do the same for those who wish us harm. Jesus asks us to.

A Course in Miracles points out that every attack is a cry for help. So lets help them. By our very presence we can send peace to all those who are hurting and crying for help. As we walk thru the world today maybe we can, we will never know who we have helped be at peace and maybe stopped some random act of violence.

Our only responsibility is to be the peace we wish to see and surrender the rest to the Elohim of peace.
