The Way to a Wonderful Life, Sunday, February
Listen to the Radio Broadcast of this
cannot remind you too often of the words of the greatest Teacher:
"According to your faith be it done unto you." ... With an
open, receptive mind, with a willingness - even an eagerness - to try
your powers, begin now the conscious practice of the great principle of
life, upon which is based the law of prosperity. ... What is this
principle? It is this: "Give, and it shall be given unto you;
good measure, pressed down, shaken together, running over."
Whether you are conscious of the fact or not, everything that you
possess has come to you because you have given its equivalent in some
form. Perhaps you have given only a thought or word - but thoughts
and words are things in the process of formation, and everyone of them
counts. Since you possess this mighty giving power, give it in such
a way that it will bring you what you want. ... Before you pray for
specific things duly consider
what the things stand for; doing that, you can include in your prayers
desire for the reality rather than for the symbol. You can then
more readily recognize the good that is trying to come to you in
hundreds of ways and you can more understandingly cooperate with God in
bringing about that good." - Ruthanna Schenck, Be Ye
The power of
belief and faith is illustrated throughout the Old Testament of the Holy
Bible and dynamically through the teachings of the Master Mind Jesus in
the New Testament, specifically the Gospels. And for those
familiar with the Bhagavad Gita (Song of God), we know that the power of
belief and faith was discovered thousands of years before the Holy
Bible. And so we realize that the power of belief and faith is a
Law of Mind that is changeless, universal and eternal. The Law of
Mind was identified by the Master Mind Jesus and he instructed his
followers to "pray believing that it IS, and
it is done unto you as you believe."
And so all of this is good
and wonderful and we can accept it intellectually without argument.
But, our intellectual acceptance of this truth is of the nature of our
surface mind, but we must embody it in our deeper mind, or soul level of
mind, in order for us to use the power that is available to us.
What we accept at the soul level is what we believe to be true that is
"absolute" ... with no doubting: James 1:6 "But
let him ask in faith, with no doubting, for the one who doubts is like a
wave of the sea that is driven and tossed by the wind."
In other words, as the mystical Ernest Holmes would say, "either
we are believing that it IS, or we are believing that it is not."
We must establish conviction in our mind that is held in the deepest
recesses of our mind as the truth and keep faith with it.
So, how do we establish this
conviction with so many distractions in the world around us? And
how do we establish this conviction when we have allowed ourselves to
believe in something else for so long? We do it by bringing "heaven
to earth" ... in other words, we establish the truth in our
mind that "as within, so without"
... or "according to my faith it is done unto
me" ... and we use a symbol of whatever it is that we seek
to receive to impress our mind until this impression is realized as an
embodiment in consciousness of that which we seek to have, to do or to
be. As an example, if we want to receive more money, whether it be
an increase in pay, an increase in the value of our stocks, a job or
promotion, or to receive unexpected income ... we use money as the
symbol in our giving. Why is money a symbol? Because our
desire for money is truly a desire for so much more than just money.
We desire happiness; financial freedom, the ability to be generous, or
the security of having money to meet our financial requirements.
We desire the peace of mind of having the ability to choose what we are
to do, what we are to be, and what we are to have ... without any
thought of money negating our enthusiasm to do it, to be it, or to have
Underlying so much of our thoughts about the
things that we hope for, pray for, and desire, is where is the money
going to come from? Or, we want to do more, be more, or have more,
BUT ... we need the money? The "Old Time Religion" types
have taught us that "money is the root of all
evil" ... yet, ministers, preachers, priests, in churches
are constantly asking us to give this "root
of all evil" to the church or the ministry. Seems odd
doesn't it? Yet, woven into this contradiction, there is a
universal truth: our supply, including money, comes through our
consciousness (G-d in us), and by giving money (tithing, donation,
faith offering), we connect the symbol to the Source of our supply and
the Law (sowing and reaping) automatically increases what we give.
Perhaps not in money each time, but in something that increases our joy,
our happiness, our peace of mind, our confidence, and our self-esteem
... and these almost always bring us an increase in our supply of
whatever it is that we need or desire.
Now, once again, we may accept this
intellectually ... but that won't necessarily compel us to give of our
money. People don't give for a variety of reasons; they believe
they can't afford to give money ... or they believe other people have
money to give so they don't need to ... there are a myriad of similar
reasons ... or they simply don't understand the absolute principle
involved. No matter what the reason may be, by not giving or
withholding, we unconsciously are developing a "poverty
consciousness." And whether it is experienced as lack
of money, lack of health, lack of happiness, lack of friendship or
companionship, lack of creative ideas or success ... it is a poverty
that must be healed before it is revealed in ways that diminish our love
of life, our love of G-d, and even our love of self. For those who
are confused about this "spiritual giving" it is not about a
percentage (10%), or about the amount that we give, it is about our
ability to establish within our consciousness that we " have"
something to give ... perhaps not a $1,000.00, but a $100.00 ... perhaps
not a $100.00, but $10.00 ... perhaps not $10.00, but a $1.00 ... what
is important is that we give to that which stirs up the spirit of
abundance, prosperity and generosity within us ... within our mind ...
within the image that we hold in our mind about our self ... and this
translates into receiving more and in turn giving more ... instead of a
$1.00 we give $10.00 ... instead of $10.00 we give $100.00 ... instead
of a $100.00 we give $1,000.00 ... I think we all are getting this.
We all have the prospering power of G-d within
us; that is, within our very own consciousness. But, we must
"recognize" that we do and then we must "identify"
with it ... not just in our thoughts and words, but by the sharing of
our prosperity. In this way we are establishing the evidence of
our faith and putting our faith into action. From "Be Ye
Prospered" we can read: "We do not
consciously put obstacles in the way of our prosperity, but we often do
so unconsciously - from habit. We want wealth, yet, because it is
the customary thing to do, we talk hard times, or we accuse our
neighbors of miserliness, or we fear that next year's crops will fail.
... How shall you make smooth prosperity's path to you? Realize
and declare that, in Spirit, abundance is yours." And
follow this up with a tithe or a faith offering as a symbol of your
belief that this is so. As we read in the Gospel of Luke 6:38 ...
it will be given to you: good measure, pressed down, shaken
together, and running over, will be given to you. For with the same
measure it will be measured back to you."
SO IT IS!
