"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
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
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.
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!
So It Is!
