"Accept nothing mentally that does not fill your soul with joy." - Dr. Joseph Murphy

                   The Law of Life is always working automatically whether we are consciously aware of it or not.  This Principle like other Universal Principles; i.e. the Law of Gravity, is no respecter of persons and is changeless.  No matter who we are, rich or poor, male or female, white, black, brown or mixed, tall, short, fat, thin, good, bad or indifferent, believer or atheist, these Principles work perfectly and precisely all the time for everybody.

                   This Principle is "as you sow, so shall you reap."  This Principle is also known as the Law of Cause and Effect.  In other words the words and thoughts that we sow into the fertile soil of Mind, returns to us in a myriad of forms creating the experiences that fill our life.  It does not take a rocket scientist to figure out that that which gets our attention, is the thing that is going to manifest in our life.  How it manifests is determined by our thoughts, words and beliefs about it.  If we choose to realize success in our business or work, yet our mind is consumed with the ideas of competition, beliefs about business failures and thoughts of doubt and fear that we will fail, we will demonstrate these ideas, beliefs and thoughts rather than success.  It is automatic.  Nobody else does it to us, not the economy or our competitors, we do.  This Principle will work exactly in the same manner for a relationship, financial prosperity, family harmony, career growth, greater health, whatever - it is Its nature to do so and like the Law of Gravity, It is changeless and automatic.

                  This week I was visited by a man who has authored several books that are at first glance, academic, but intriguing.  More importantly he invented a product that created excitement in the investor community.  During the past couple of years he received $6 million dollars from investors who had confidence and faith in his product.  During these two years he drove a magnificent car, bought suits from the finest stores in Beverly Hills and maintained a professional office on one of the most prestigious business district streets in Los Angeles County.  When he arrived in my office he was down to $63 in borrowed money, his rent was past due, his office had been closed and his telephones disconnected.  He did not come to me because of his religious or spiritual beliefs, he really has none.  He came to me because he believes in the Law of Cause and Effect.  

                The Law of Cause and Effect or as the Radical Rabbi Jesus phrased it, the Law of Sowing and Reaping.  It manifests based on Cause and Cause alone.  But......... there is a greater "cause" than man - there is a greater cause than man's beliefs, thoughts and ideas - there is First Cause, and many of us forget this when we are in the thick of things.  First Cause is God - the Thing Itself - Absolute Principle.

                I am an absolute believer in not ignoring the "facts" in any situation, condition or circumstance.  In this teaching we don't "deny the facts" but we aren't afraid of them either.  We know we have to move from something to somewhere, so we must know from where we are moving.  The facts reveal the "consciousness" that is manifesting the condition, circumstance or situation.  The truth reveals the Power of God-in-man that is greater than the facts.   Whatever is being held in consciousness must be "cast out" to make way for that which will create a more favorable effect.  In the Bible this is referred to as "casting out demons."  The demons are the false beliefs, thoughts and ideas that are attached to the consciousness and manifesting as a disagreeable experience.  This turning (casting out) automatically begins to "effect" the consciousness that is open to change, receptive to Good and is ready to "let go" of the negative.   The man above was in a state of readiness for healing.  

               What we are seeking in "consciousness" is seeking us and it will find us - $6 million dollars, the best of suits, no matter where we are, no matter what we are doing.  "What I am Seeking (accepting in my Mind), is ever Seeking to Express itself For Me, automatically."

 And So It Is!
