” 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 the Creative Energy, which is effortlessly pouring forth from my Divine Consciousness. I am now aware. I am now in the flow.”

It is. Everything is, right here right now, perfect. When Jesus said; ‘take no thought for tomorrow.’ he wasn’t necessarily talking about a literal 24 hours from now. He was talking about the tomorrow that is in the next second. Tomorrow is made up of countless future seconds. If I need not worry about the next second then the next 24 hours will certainly take care of itself.

If everything, every need is Abundantly and Divinely taken care of now, this instant, then it will continue on into the next and the next, on and on and on.

I am not blind to the issues we all face in this world, and I know that all those seeming troubles will be more easily solved through an attitude of surrender to this instant of perfection. If something is going wrong or traumatic our previous instants of surrender will have been good practice during those tough times.

Do I make plans for the future? of course I do. I also have needs and obligations to attend to. My past experience has taught me that all will go easier, smoother and lighter by surrendering this instant and the next and the next……..

As the lesson for today points out; “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.”

The spiritual life is one of relaxation. Here is a paraphrase from the Message of Matthew 11:28-30, Are you tired? Worn out? Burned out on religion? Come to me. Get away with me and you’ll recover your life. I’ll show you how to take a real rest. Walk with me and work with me—watch how I do it. Learn the unforced rhythms of grace. I won’t lay anything heavy or ill-fitting on you. Keep company with me and you’ll learn to live freely and lightly.” Jesus

The proof of this in my life is that at 65 I’m still here and as I look back I can see how God has provided and protected and cared for me every step of the way. I could point out and argue about all the things that may seem negative about the past, or in the present for that matter, but that would be to easy to do. I had lessons to learn, however I’m still in the flow of Divine Perfection–old school theology calls it Divine Providence.

For a rose to produce a flower, every instant until the bloom, must be perfection. This also includes all the instants after the bloom, as the petals fall and decay to fertilize the ground to prepare the ground for the next flower. This is Perfection and Providence at work.

Blessings to all of you.

Day 10 of 40 days of prosperity

“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.”

Day 8 of 40 days of Prosperity.

” 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 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.

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

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.”

Thought for the day-Sin, guilt and death are gone.

Ephesians 2:14-15, “Christ gave his own body to destroy the Law of Moses with all its rules and regulations” (CEV)

Where there is no Law there are no lawbreakers. Where there is no Law there is no sin, no guilt, no death. All Law breaking (sin) leads to guilt which requires punishment (death) in some form. The punishment guilt requires is enacted upon either oneself or projected onto another attempting to harm the other in some fashion. These are not separate, harming the other is harming oneself and harming ourselves is harming the other. We are not separate.

A person free of guilt will not harm another or themselves. Forgiveness is the means to recognize no one has harmed you and neither have your harmed yourself. God was never harmed and so he does not need to forgive nor does he need to punish us. Why then should we punish ourselves or others. All guilt and punishment of self and others is a waste of time and a self-indulgence.

Christ has set us free from the Law of sin and death. Rom 8.2 (NIV)

“Death swallowed by triumphant Life!
Who got the last word, oh, Death?
Oh, Death, who’s afraid of you now?

It was sin that made death so frightening and law-code guilt that gave sin its leverage, its destructive power. But now in a single victorious stroke of Life, all three—sin, guilt, death—are gone, the gift of our Master, Jesus Christ. Thank God!” 1 Cor. 15:55-57 (The Message)
