Most of us have learned that our thoughts
develop our faith. We can be conscious of the pattern of our
thoughts through reflection or contemplation and in doing so we can
begin to master our thoughts and therefore consciously create a
receptivity towards a greater good in all areas of our lives. I
believe that it is important to remind ourselves daily that our thoughts
are like a double-thread in our mind, both human and divine. Just
as a negative person is not always negative a spiritually minded person
is also not always thinking spiritual thoughts. Our daily
activities almost guarantee us of the opportunity to shift back and
forth in our mode of thinking. It is this shifting our perceptions
to understand why we think and believe the way that we do that will give
us the greater opportunity to strengthen our faith in the Good.|
The master teacher Eric
Butterworth in his book "Discover the Power Within You" offers
us an opportunity to find a way in which to shift our understanding and
awareness based on the teachings of the Master Mind Jesus: "The
command to turn the other cheek has been grossly misunderstood. It
certainly doesn't mean that we should become doormats, or invite further
assault. It is strange - when Jesus says, "pluck out the
eye," we know that He is using a metaphor that must be translated
into modern idiom. When he says "cut off your hand," we
know He doesn't mean it literally. Yet, we have missed a dynamic
lesson because we have insisted on accepting the idea of turning the
other cheek in a completely literal sense.
has made the great discovery of the Divinity of Man. He is trying
to help us realize that there is always a depth-potential of strength
within us even in times of weakness. He is telling us that if we
find ourselves upset over something another person has said or done, our
upset indicates that we have been in the wrong state of consciousness.
To react to it in this same state of mind only compounds the problem
within us. Jesus says, "Turn to the other side of your
nature. You are both human and divine. There is that in you that
can never be hurt, that is always poised and peaceful, that knows your
spiritual unity with God and knows that no one can take your good from
you. In this diviner state of consciousness, the hurt is healed,
the influence of the other person on you is nullified and you become a
healing influence upon him."
Most of us who
take the time to reflect on what we have believed and accepted as truth
throughout the years will realize that our thoughts have changed about
many different things. There was a time when we accepted roles in
our life that no longer served us and therefore we shifted in our
thinking about what we choose to experience and what we no longer accept
for ourselves. The ancient wisdom speaks to this as the "age
of reason," the time in our life when we form our own opinions and
make our own choices. We are not here to live to someone else's
idea of what our life should be and more and more there are people who
are finding the freedom to live to their own personal choices. It
is an issue for many people to face uncertainty. Yet, our only way
in which to experience real change and new-ness is to face uncertainty.
As we take it into our mind that we are always supported by a Power
Greater, though invisible, we shall see the invisible made visible in
I have seen people move
across the country with no guarantee of a job and what appeared to be
limited funds, but with their enthusiasm for change and their positive
hope that whatever they need will show up, they have been successful in
creating a new life for themselves. Early in my studies I often
heard the statement, "argue for your limitations and their
yours" and this has always proven to be true as I have worked with
people to pursue their goals and ideals. Our faith in the All-Good
can prove for us that limitations are only a part of limited thinking
and in truth we have the power of Spirit and Intelligence within us to
reject any limited thought and open ourselves to the more, the greater
and the better at all times.
look at what Eric Butterworth tells us in his book "life is for
living" ... "How easy it is
to lose sight of our objective in life! We often exist from day to
day believing that the most important thing is a kind of peace that
means no problems, no changes, and no challenges. Life is for
living, and growing, and overcoming. Your purpose in life is to
grow and develop as a person, to release your own inner potential. ...
Life is for living, and you can live in peace and happiness and
fulfillment in terms of inner growth and outer achievement. Start
where you are and do what you can with what you have. What you can
do depends only upon your faith to believe that God is your
all-sufficiency in all things."
Eric Butterworth tells
us how to release the Power for Good in our life; and that is to learn
to depend only upon our faith to believe that G-d is our all-sufficiency
in all things. And to depend upon our faith is to align our
thoughts that this is the truth for us and that we can realize the good
results of what we entertain in our mind. As we reject the
thoughts that create limitations, excuses and things that seemingly
block us from the good that we desire, and replace these thoughts with
images and ideas that empower us, we shall find a greater sense of the
Spirit being empowered through us, as us and for us to do that which we
desire to experience. Let's remind ourselves of Job in the Bible
who went through disaster after disaster but finally "got it"
in his mind and in his own sense of the presence of the Power of Spirit
declared: "But he knows the way that I take;
when he has tried me, I shall come forth as gold." As we
know the "he" that Job refers to is the confusion in his own
mind. As we remind ourselves that in every problem there is a
solution, in every change an opportunity, and in every challenge there
can be spiritual growth, then we shall realize a greater sense of the
presence of the Spirit in our lives ... and we shall experience Spirit
empowered living with grace and ease.
SO IT IS!
