I am a unique, special individualization of God

“I am a unique, special individualization of God, and my whole purpose for being is to be a vehicle, a channel, for the expression of my inner self….Remember I am here for one purpose only, and that is to find my way back to the Father’s house—to be the True Self-expression of the infinite.” The Superbeings

Yes back to the basics, the foundation of my life and Spiritual practice—”to seek first the Kingdom of God and his righteousness and all these things will be added to me.” Jesus

There is no reason to be concerned about anything or how things will turn out. Even though I have ideas of how my life will unfold I must surrender ALL of them. That is what Jesus meant when he says; “all these things will be given to me.” Maybe they will come to me just as I planed and maybe not, who knows? “This or something better,” as the saying goes.

What I hear in this saying of Jesus is to picture how I want my life to go, how I want things to be, write it out in as much detail as I can imagine, desire it and own it in my mind’s eye—then Surrender the whole basket of good I can see, to God—give it up, let it go, and flow with life without a care in the world. Trust God completely in all things and for all things. I do those things put in front of me each day and be open to new inspiration and new direction with a surrendered heart and a clear mind trusting completely in God. No worries, no fears, not trying to force anything and in Peace and Joy look forward to “all these things being added to me.”

I walk thru life confidently and at Peace in the knowledge of the complete provision from God in every area of my life.

The source of my very life is God. There is no Life in my body, it is only a container energized by the Holy Spirit. This inner life is Perfect, Whole and Complete lacking in nothing.

To borrow from the Eagles:

I get a peaceful easy feeling whenever you are around because I know I’m already standing on Holy Ground.

I get this feeling that I know you as a lover and a friend, I hear this voice whisper in my other ear, I’m standing on Holy Ground.

Day 37 of the 40-Day Prosperity Plan

“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.”

Mr Price points out in another of his books, Superbeings; he is talking here about a listening attitude, “(‘…you are totally receptive to the clear message of Divine Mind…’)—and a listening attitude can work wonders in your life. The key thought that came forth from within went something like this: ‘Claim your good. Speak the word for your good. Then care not if your good ever comes to pass.‘… But caring which is another word for worry and concern, was actually diverting the power flow.” pg xxii [underline mine]

This is so opposite to how I was raised and the attitude of the thought system of the world which thinks: caring, is different from worrying and fearing, but they are actually the same. ‘Caring’ does not equal love but is a thin disguise for its opposite. To know that my care for someone is actually diverting their and my good. The highest form of care then is to surrender all cares to the Love of God and not get in the way by setting my own agenda of how I think things should turn out.

Surrender is in fact the cornerstone of the Spiritual Life. Everything without exception must eventually be surrendered to God. This is one meaning of Jesus’ statement; “He who looses his life shall find it.” This is the “stone” that people so often stumble over—surrendering my life in its entirety to God.

In my profession as a “caregiver” I found I so often had ideas of how things should go to help people lives be easier and yet I often met with resistance. I found I must surrender my ideas of outcomes and allow the situation to unfold and be available without any agenda.

I did find that being a caregiver was a life of constant surrender to God and allowing God to work in the situation for the best of all concerned. I did find that going into a situation with a surrendered attitude everything went much smoother than the times I tried to make things work according to my time and plan.

“Cast ALL your cares on God for he cares for you.” Total Surrender.

” 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.
