The Way to a Wonderful Life Message for March 5, 2017
           It is never too late to realize the life that we dream about but we have to cease calling them dreams and start calling them choices that we affirm for ourselves.  Far too many people create dependencies on money, people and other material means either consciously or unconsciously.  G-d is the Source of All Creation and we must give our attention to the Spirit of G-d if we are going to live the abundant life.  This does not mean that we sit in meditation for hours at a time or take a journey up a so-called sacred mountain, but to condition our mind to realize the consciousness of our connection to the Source of All Creation, G-d Intelligence, Infinite Spirit.  This is why the great teacher Thomas Troward taught that we must "get into the spirit of the thing" ... in other words, get in tune with the Infinite and the infinite Good.  And this doesn't just apply to drawing wealth or material things to ourselves but also peace of mind, confidence, a feeling of being successful and most of all joy.

             Dr. Joseph Murphy who was one of the greatest teachers of Spiritual Truth shared this wisdom with us regarding a businessman's Three Steps To Riches: 
A business friend of mine in Beverly Hills said to me in his store, “my brother is in the same business as I am, just three blocks away, and he is prospering and rolling in wealth. Recently he hired two additional sales clerks. Yet, I can’t make ends meet. It is not the environment or the merchandise; it must be me!”
              I commented that getting rich and advancing in life is not a matter of a certain business or a certain location, that riches are of the mind of man, and that some men of great talent remain poverty-stricken and frustrated, while others who have very little talent or education prosper beyond their fondest dreams. I told him about three steps to unfailing riches.
         He followed these three steps and progressed remarkably:
First Step: Never make a negative statement about finances, such as, “I can’t pay the rent,” “I can’t make ends meet,” “Business is very bad,” I can’t pay my bills,” etc. As soon as the negative thought, “I can’t…” comes to mind, affirm instead: “I am one with the Infinite storehouse within me, and all my needs are met instantaneously.” It may be necessary to do this fifty times in one hour, but persist and the negative thought will cease to trouble you.
Second Step: Make it a habit during the course of the day to condition your mind to the riches of the Infinite by affirming: “God is an ever present help in time of trouble,” and, “God is the instant and immediate source of my supply, presenting me with all the ideas necessary at every moment of time and point of space.”
Third Step: Lull yourself to sleep every night by reiterating this great truth: “I am ever grateful for God’s riches that are ever active, ever present, unchanging, and eternal.”
            This businessman faithfully followed this spiritual prescription, and he has advanced by leaps and bounds. He framed the following Biblical quotation which stands on his desk: The wilderness and the parched land shall be glad; and the desert shall rejoice, and blossom as the rose. (Isaiah. 35:1.)
            Recently, he said to me, “My mind was a wilderness and a desert. There was nothing growing there but weeds of ignorance, fear, self-depreciation, and a sense of unworthiness. Now I am on the way to victory, achievement, and prosperity.”

        What one can do all can do is the Law of the Universe and so we know that these three keys to conditioning our mind to worship G-d in spirit and in truth shall accomplish whatever it is that we shall desire.  Your power to be rich is your willingness to recognize the Love of G-d as It expresses in you as good desires and to realize the Law of G-d as you accept with joy the good that is yours.

And so it is!
