The Way to a Wonderful Life, Sunday, April

have faith and we believe. We pray. We pray and we believe.
We pray again ... and we believe. Yet, we do not see evidence of
any change in our life. We pray and we begin to have doubts.
We pray again but the doubts don't go away. We pray and resist
feeling depressed. But, the depression overwhelms us and we feel
defenseless against it. We pray even though our faith has
diminished. We want to believe but the doubts seem overwhelming.
We pray again, silently, seeking the feeling of being in the Presence of
Something that can eliminate the darkness. We don't feel It at
first, but we know our silence is the pathway to experiencing It.
So we pray again, silently, remaining in the silence until our mind
becomes still. We don't feel the Presence, but we know It is
beckoning to us ... drawing us deeper into the silence. And then,
suddenly, we begin to feel the Presence. We are in It and It is
within us ... within our soul ... in our seeking we have found It, right
where we are. And so we listen, inclining our ear within, for that
still small voice that begins to thunder through our intuitive mind.
We feel the Presence in our heart, we feel It in our mind, and we feel
It in our soul. We realize that the truth is, as we seek, we find.
And so this begins our path to a heightened awareness of our eternal
unity with the Spirit. The Light begins to shine through our mind.
Ideas become desires to be fulfilled. Our way is opened up.
Our faith gives us evidence of things not seen, things that are ours to
have, to do, and to be.|
Most of us have heard the expression, "the
light at the end of the tunnel" and in these simple words, there is
a great truth. There is always a way, always a solution to every
seeming problem. But first we must know that we are not our
circumstances or the conditions that we find ourselves in. We are
so much more than any circumstance or any condition. Our capacity
to transcend conditions and circumstances is unlimited. But, our
thoughts must be directed to the end of the tunnel, so to speak.
get good results we must properly understand our relation to the great
impersonal power we are using. It is intelligent and we are
intelligent, and the two intelligences must cooperate. We must not
fly in the face of the Law by expecting it to do for us what it can only
do through us; and we must therefore use our intelligence with the
knowledge that it is acting as the instrument of a greater intelligence;
and because we have this knowledge we may, and should, cease from all
anxiety as to the final result."
Troward, The Edinburgh & Dore Lectures on Mental Science
It is the anxiety that creates within us the
doubts and the forthcoming depressions. It is in the silence as we
turn to that within, knowing that there is Something to turn within to,
that we heal the anxiety and begin to foster faith and an expectation of
a good result.
Thomas Troward explains this process
clearly: "In actual practice we must first
form the ideal conception of our object with the definite intention of
impressing it upon the universal mind - it is this intention which takes
such thought out of the region of mere casual fancies - and then affirm
that our knowledge of the Law is sufficient reason for a calm
expectation of a corresponding result, and there therefore all necessary
conditions will come to us in due order. We can then turn to the
affairs of our daily life with the calm assurance that the initial
conditions are either there already or will soon come into view.
If we do not see them, let us rest content with the knowledge that the
spiritual prototype is already in existence and wait till some
circumstance pointing in the desired direction begins to show itself.
It may be a very small circumstance, but it is the direction and not the
magnitude which is to be taken into consideration. As soon as we
see it we should regard it as the first sprouting of the seed we have
sown in the Absolute, and do calmly and without excitement, whatever the
circumstances may seem to require, and then later on we shall see that
this doing will in turn lead to further circumstances in the same
direction until we find ourselves conducted step by step to the
accomplishment of our object. In this way the understanding of the
great principle of the Law of Supply will, by repeated experiences,
deliver us more and more completely out of the region of anxious thought
and toilsome labor and bring us into a new world where the useful
employment of all our powers, whether mental or physical, will only be
an unfolding of our individuality upon the lines of its own nature, and
therefore a perpetual source of health and happiness; a sufficient
inducement, surely, to the careful study of the laws governing the
relation between the individual and the Universal Mind."
Far too many of us have allowed ourselves to
hold in our consciousness feelings of selfishness, lack of ease, and
fear. We feel a sense of selfishness when we seek personal gain,
whether it be wealth, success in our work or personal relationships.
We have been taught that we are to be "self-less" and to
"serve others" but in reality our acceptance of these concepts
creates contradictions to the truth of our being. We give when we
prosper and realize success in our work and creative expressions.
We serve others best by buying their goods and services, their artistic
works and sharing with those we love. We are all aware that we
must "love our neighbor as our self" ...
but first, we must love our self. We must love our self enough to
realize the prosperity that is ours to have. We must love our self
enough to enjoy success in our work and our creative endeavors.
When we prosper and succeed, we have the capacity to give to others.
Most importantly, we have the capacity to inspire others to find their
own way in which to succeed and prosper. Intellectually, we know
this. Yet, if we are experiencing doubts and depressions, we
haven't eliminated those false concepts of the world that obstruct our
good, resident in the deeper recesses of our mind.
Think about these words from the mystical
W. Frederic Keeler: "There is no
disappointment in heaven [Spirit] and the heavenly life can be lived
here on earth. Do something that benefits both you and others;
give yourself unreservedly in your own heart to something higher, God.
Any life can be transmuted into a gloriously beautiful one; filled with
peace; love; rest; faith."
SO IT IS!
