will always remember and never forget the great metaphysician Dr.
Robert Bitzer's words; "I
can say all that the Father hath is mine a thousand times but as long
as I give evidence of lack in my mind instead of plenty and will have
no more than what I have now."
And in these words he is referring to consciousness. The
consciousness that has a persistent attention on lack or little can
never realize the plenty that is available for us all. The
conditioning of our mind to "feel" the sting of lack and
loss has taken time and a great many thoughts and it will take time
and a great many thoughts of plenty in order to displace this
self-imposed-curse from our mentality. There is no magic potion
or high-thinking-guru that will dispel from our mind the calamites
that have been created by our faith in the "appearance" of
lack and loss. It is up to us to affirm the truth that there is
plenty of all things in the universe and plenty of things for each and
every one of us no matter what appearances may imply. Let us
remember that facts change the truth does not.
Waldo Trine writes in his book "In tune With The Infinite": "Never
give a moment to complaint, but utilize the time that would otherwise
be spent in this way in looking forward and actualizing the conditions
you desire. Suggest prosperity to yourself. See yourself
in a prosperous condition. Affirm that you will before long be
in a prosperous condition. Affirm it calmly and quietly, but
strongly and confidently. Believe it, believe it
absolutely. Expect it, keep it continually watered with
expectation. You thus make yourself a magnet to attract the
things that you desire. Don't be afraid to suggest, to affirm
these things, for by so doing you put forth an ideal which will begin
to clothe itself in material form. In this way you are utilizing
agents among the most subtle and powerful in the universe. If
you are particularly desirous for anything that you feel it is good
and right for you to have, something that will broaden your life or
that will increase your usefulness to others, simply hold the thought
that at the right time, in the right way, and through the right
instrumentality, there will come to you or there will open up for you
the way whereby you can attain what you desire."
is our focus and concentration on our "interior powers" that
will determine the direction of our life and the measure of increase
in the good that we are to experience. Everything is dependent
on the degree to which we give attention in our thought. If our
attention is so fastened on the seeming material evidence without an
awareness that the material only represents the visible things then we
shall fail to draw to us that which is ours on the invisible side of
life. When the Master Mind Jesus declared that "all that
the Father hath is mine" he was referring to all, both visible
and invisible and also the the forces of mind and spirit that makes
all things possible.
Ralph Waldo Trine
shares this story in his book:
know of a young lady who a short time ago wanted some money very
badly. She wanted it for a good purpose, she saw no reason why
she shouldn't have it. She is one who has come into an
understanding of the power of the interior forces. She took and
held herself in the attitude of mind that all would work out. In
the morning she entered into the silence for a few moments. In
this way she brought herself into a more complete harmony with the
higher powers. Before the day closed a gentleman called, a
member of a family with which she was acquainted. He asked her
if she would do for the family some work that they wanted done.
She was a little surprised that they would ask her to do this
particular kind of work, but she said to herself, "Here is a
call. I will respond and see what it leads to." She
undertook the work. She did it well. When she had
completed it there was put into her hands an amount of money too large
for the work she had done. She protested. They replied,
"No, you have done us a service that transcends in value the
amount we offer to pay you." The sum thus received was more
than sufficient for the work she wished to accomplish."
We should never underestimate the results produced by mind and spirit
to give to us the plenty that is ours. Faith is the law of
success and we can each and everyone of us realize true prosperity by
planting the thought of prosperity in our mind persistently; giving
evidence to that which is both seen and unseen.
SO IT IS!
