The Way to a Wonderful Life Message for August 7, 2016

            I 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.

           Ralph 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."

It 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:  
"I 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.


Keep the faith!
. Henry Bates
