"The Art Of Being Yourself"
The Way to a Wonderful Life Message for September 3, 2017
are three principal ways to get what we need: by work, by
thought, and by prayer. Most people work hard, and some
utilize the power of thought. But prayer is greatly
neglected. And this is unfortunate, for the most powerful
energy one can generate is prayer energy.”
... these words from Dr. Norman Vincent's
Peale's book, "Words I Have Lived By" chapter 5
"Prayer" give us a profound truth that works for
everyone. He further writes that to acquire this energy all we
must do is "do it ... pray every
day." The best way to learn
anything is by doing it. I remember several years ago reading
an interview with Tennessee Williams where he was asked "how
does someone become a writer?" And he responded,
"by writing." This and his wonderful quote, "Lucky
is believing you're lucky" have
always remained in my thoughts through the years. This is
similar to Dr. O. C. Smith's, "I
believe in my prayer and the answer to it."
We must pray about everything, every day. This does not mean
we are to follow someone else's idea or practice of prayer but to
hold in our mind that which we desire to be true for us and
the conditions and experiences we find ourselves in.
A wonderful woman from North Carolina sent me the link to a YouTube
video titled: "The Greatest Proof The Law Of Attraction
Works! (Woman Wins 5000+ Contests!)." Here is the
The video is an
interview with Helene Hadsell who began her adventure in the
practice of affirmative prayer and visualization after reading Dr.
Norman Vincent Peale's book, "The Power of Positive
Thinking" although I noted on the Internet that "The
Secret" people were trying to take credit for this.
Anyway, this is a wonderful video to watch and even more fascinating
are the comments that are associated with the video. The
comments reveal people who believe in what Helene is telling us in
the video, those who are skeptical, those who don't believe, and
those who do. But, Helene didn't have any special dispensation
of faith or more faith than any one of us. We all have access
to the power of faith and to the degree that our faith can make us
whole, as the Master Mind Jesus informed us, is dependent on our
"use" of it. And we make the most powerful
"use" of it through prayer. Sounds a little old
fashioned but it is the truth.
calm, poised thoughts are prayers. This is why we are told in
the ancient wisdom to "pray without ceasing" ... in other
words to keep our thoughts on the affirmative good. We must
"tell ourselves" what we believe to be true for us.
We don't have to say it out loud, follow a prayer formula, or stand
up in a Mega Church to realize the good results of our
prayers. We just must begin to tell ourselves that we have the
Power (energy) within us to direct our life and to produce the good
results that we desire.
Let us think on these words from the great Ralph Waldo
Emerson; "Great men (and
women) are they who see that the spiritual is stronger than any
material force; that thoughts rule the world."
And so it is!
