"The Law of Attraction attracts to you everything you need, according to the nature of your thought life. Your environment and financial condition are the perfect reflection of your habitual thinking. Thought rules the world."
Joseph Murphy - 1898-1981, Author, Divine Science Minister

                Dr. Joseph Murphy authored numerous books and book-lets during his amazing career as a Divine Science Minister.  His metaphysical interpretations give us amazing insight into the spiritual principles outlined in the Bible, and especially a greater awareness of the powerful life of Jesus.  Dr. Murphy understood that Life is to be lived in good health, joyously and prosperously and his teaching career was devoted to these subjects.  Dr. Murphy was Dr. O. C. Smith's first metaphysical teacher and good friend.

The Law of Attraction attracts to us that which is like our habitual thinking.  But, we must be aware of this immutable and powerful Law in order to use it to our benefit.  If we look at our life and are confused as to why we experience unhappiness, loneliness, illness and financial lack, we will remain in these experiences.  The same happens if we blame someone else for our unhappiness, loneliness, illness and financial troubles.  Our "how-to-move-through" these experiences comes from understanding that these experiences are the product of our very own past habitual thinking.  No one else's but ours.  But this is the Good News because since our thinking caused it to happen, we don't need anyone else's cooperation in order to think in a new way.

             In Dr. Murphy's "The Amazing Laws of Cosmic Mind Power,"  he wrote that there are 3-Steps to Healing:  The first step in healing is not to be afraid of the manifest condition -- from this very moment. The second step is to realize that the condition is only the product of past thinking, which will have no more power to continue its existence. The third step is mentally to exalt the miraculous healing power of God within you.

            I know many of you are thinking, "he has already written about these," but.......... are we practicing these 3-Steps with demonstrated results?  If not, then these are merely comforting words to us rather than powerful and amazing steps to demonstrating the Good that we desire.  We must take the time daily to exercise these steps in our life in order to experience a greater and fuller expression of joy, love, health and prosperity.  Most of us have a magnitude of "old habitual thoughts" in our subconscious mind that demonstrate discord in our lives, sometimes unexpectedly.... this is a normal and natural operation of the Law of Attraction and if we don't erase them with new ideas they will continue to visit us without notice.  An often used statement, "Life is subject to change without notice," is a truism that most of us have experienced. However, we can avoid most negative experiences ..... if - we do our daily work:  prayer, sitting in the Silence, and consistently reminding ourselves of these 3-Steps in Healing.

             The Law of Attraction attracts to us everything we need, according to the nature of our thought life.  If we focus on success, the Law of Attraction will bring to us all we need for success; if we focus on loving companionship, the Law of Attraction will bring to us loving companionship; whatever idea we focus on and use the 3-Steps in Healing to eliminate fear and his twin brother doubt, is ours.  Nothing can stop an idea whose time has come! 

 And So It Is! 

Letting Love use me in Its own Good Way,
