           "The law of prosperity is beautifully expressed by the Psalmist when he says, "His delight is in the law of the Lord; and in this law doth he meditate day and night." (Psalm 1:2) ... Prosperity means to increase our capacities and abilities along all lines and in every direction so that we release our inner powers.  The promotion, the money, and the contacts you wish to make are the images and likenesses, as well as the physical forms of the states of mind which produce them." - Dr. Joseph Murphy, Author, Minister

" Let them shout for joy, and be glad, that favor my righteous cause: Yea, let them say continually, Jehovah be magnified, Who hath pleasure in the prosperity of his servant." - Psalm 35:27, The Holy Bible

Our ideas about prosperity are shaped in many ways by our experiences and the people who are a part of our life.  Whatever we give our attention to, becomes "real" for us, and so many of us must begin to shift our awareness away from our past experiences and the people we know and expand our awareness of the vast potential for prosperity that is realized by people from all walks of life.  Whatever our measure of belief, that is the measure in which we can expect to prosper.  And for many of us, this measure of belief is to get a new job, or a promotion, or an increase in compensation.  Others of us, seek to demonstrate a tremendous change in our level of realized prosperity and so we must strengthen our conviction that not only are all things possible, but also possible for us personally.

      This much we already know, whatever we can imagine for ourselves, already exists ... we must just lift our "awareness" to "having it" right now.  Our prosperous thought is always of something that is available ... it is ready for us to claim it.  It may not be the job we have, or the idea that we have in our mind right now of the perfect job.  Our promotion or our increased compensation, may not be available to us in the company that we are presently employed at, but it is available.  What all of this means is that we must be willing to be receptive to change; changing jobs, using skills and abilities that we have yet to have realized that we have.  And most of all, loosing the "limitations" in our mind in favor of the unrealized potential that is within us.

     Let's look at these words from Dr. Joseph Murphy and take a few moments to think about how they apply to us, personally:  "The faculty of image-making is called imagination.  It is one of the primal faculties of mind and has the power to project and clothe our ideas, giving them visibility on the screen of space.  We can discipline, control, and direct our imagination constructively and get what we want in life, or we can use it negatively and imagine what we don't want in life.  The mental images which we contemplate and consciously accept as true are impressed on our subconscious mind (soul) and made manifest in our life. ... Imagination is the mighty instrument used by famous scientists, artists, poets, physicists, inventors, architects, and mystics.  When the world says, "It is impossible, it can't be done," the person with vivid imagination says, "It is done!"

      How often do we imagine ourselves having, doing, or being the thing that we want, and then declare, "it is done!"?   This Thing Called Life is like a blank canvass waiting for us to "picture" the life that we desire upon it and to declare that it is made manifest now.  It is from someone's imagination that everything new that we see has become made manifest.  Our imagination can free us or imprison us.  It is always a choice that we make in the use of our mind.  There is no transformation or transcendent change without using our imaging faculties of mind first.  The images in our mind precede the prayer, the thoughts and the words that allow us to realize greater prosperity and all things good that we desire to experience. 

    Imagination takes our power of awareness into the great Un-Seen and those who have made constructive use of it have realized not only what they initially were seeking, but that something "greater still" that only the Intelligence of G-d could make known to them.  This is why the Master Mind Jesus stated, "you are the light of the world" ... the "light" symbolizes our ability to tap into the Intelligence that creates and makes manifest ... to use this Intelligence to manifest that which is invisible to the unbeliever, but a very real potential for those who have the conviction of faith.

     From the great Dr. Frank Richelieu (The Art of Being Yourself):  "No matter what adverse circumstances or hardships we may encounter, by the right use of the imagination, we can get ourselves out of any predicament.  By using our imagination to work in harmony with Life, we are working with Truth.  The results have to be favorable."

      Whatever favorable result we can imagine for any situation or circumstance we may face, is energized by our desire and how appealing this result is to us.  We cannot let our imagination create confusion but must establish a pattern in our mind that fosters images of success, health, happiness, love and prosperity.  We have the power within us to manifest prosperity ... but we must believe that we do and we must believe this every day.


Keep the faith!
Rev. Dr. Henry Lee Bates
