spent quite some time on the telephone this week with a client talking
about moving through an experience of financial lack and indebtedness.
One of the biggest challenges to moving beyond financial lack is to
overcome our ego ... not the ego that is arrogant, but the ego that is
ashamed, embarrassed, and self-defeating. Now, I am not writing
about a general case of financial lack ... someone who wants to move
into a larger house and wants new ideas on how to make more money ... I
am writing about a woman who did not have laundry money and had to wear
clothes again that needed to be laundered. This woman felt
extremely humiliated, distraught and defeated. This incident was
one of many unpleasant and uncomfortable experiences she had gone
through for awhile.
I approached this
case in a two-fold way. I gave her the statement from
Jesus, "he who has much will have even more and he who has little
will have even less." I explained to her that we must move
from these feelings of defeat and distress as quickly as possible ...
even if the only thing we can think to be grateful for is that we can
still wiggle our toes. We must not surrender to lack .. not for
any longer than it takes to think our next thought. The thoughts
of lack and the feelings of humiliation, embarrassment and defeat will
attach us to lack and we will have even less. Jesus' statement can
be restated as, "the rich get richer and the poor get poorer,"
for this is the Truth. The Rich In Spirit will amass more of
whatever Good they desire for themselves and others and the Poor
In Spirit may even lose what little they have.
Those of us who realize the
Truth know that we move from the experiences that we do not want by
feeding our Sub-conscious Mind new concepts and beliefs ... we do this
through our "feeling nature" and through affirmation. We
must use our "Conscious Mind" to turn from that which we do
not want to that which we want ... ALL IS DONE IN MIND. This
is the Truth that Jesus taught and that all the Great Mystics understood
and realized. We must not fail to "consciously" change
out thinking as quickly as possible when these ideas and thoughts of
distress, humiliation and so forth enter our mind. We must take
charge of the situation by immediately speaking to the Truth of the
situation and knowing that on the Invisible Side of Life, the Infinite
Invisible Goodness, God ... is moving us into a greater experience of
"rich-ness" than our human senses may hold witness to.
We don't deny gravity ... yet we cannot "see" gravity ... yet
.. many of us will continue to deny the Invisible Good even when we know
that our thoughts and feelings are attaching us more firmly to the
Think about what it would
"feel" like to have to drive a 1962 Chevy that rattled and
shake when you started it and left a dark cloud of smoke behind you when
you drove through your neighborhood. See yourself noticing your
neighbors looking at you while you are driving this crash-test reject
vehicle with the rusty hood and bald tires.... what do you imagine you
would feel like?
Now, think of yourself
getting into this same 1962 Chevy knowing that you are driving to the
dealer to purchase the finest of luxury or sports car that you could
imagine for your self ... would any of those feelings that you felt
before be part of this new scenario ... I don't think so. This is
what it is like when we are using Scientific Prayer or Treatment ... we
may be in the 1962 Chevy physically ... but mentally and emotionally we
are on the way to the dealership to pick up the new car. Prayer
or Treatment is what we use to "convince" ourselves of the
Truth ... that we "receive what we ask for" ... by knowing
that on the Invisible Side Of Life ... It Is Already Present.
So It Is!
Love Use Me In Its Own Good Way,
