must do the very thing you think you cannot do." - Eleanor
As we realize the Power of God within us,
our expectations of our ability to actualize greater success,
prosperity, health, loving relationships and happiness rise higher in
our consciousness. This realization of the Power within us comes
through spiritual wisdom and understanding. From the Book of Proverbs 4:
7 "The beginning of wisdom is:
get wisdom; at the cost of all you have, get understanding.
As we gain a greater understanding of the
"I Am" within us and realize Its Power in a greater way we
will find an ease of empowerment in our lives that was missing in our
previous experiences. The Master Mind Jesus stated, "I Am the
Light of the world" ... and this, the greatest misunderstanding of
His teaching can be traced back to this statement ... for the masses of
people then ... and now ... believed that the man Jesus was the
"Light of the world" and the rest of us remain in the darkness
of spiritual ignorance. In Truth, this "I Am" is within
everyone of us ... it is the Indwelling Presence of God ... the spark of
the Divine that connects us to Life. And most of us who study
metaphysics know this on an intellectual level ... but how often do we
forget it in our daily lives? We know that no one can say "I
Am" for anyone else ... and therefore this Power remains with the
individual ... and is "activated" through our choices.
But ... a spark that lies dormant within our consciousness ... does not
"light" up anything.
When I first began studying metaphysics
(The Science of Mind), I was surprised and a little put off that we were
encouraged to "pray" for parking spaces. In my ignorance
I thought it was somehow blasphemous to pray for parking spaces. I
didn't realize at that point in my study of metaphysics that there is no
big or small to the Infinite ... and that prayer is in effect,
recognizing that the Presence of God is at hand ... always ... and is
available for us to call on It ... for any Good thing we can imagine for
ourselves. We can never recognize God too much ... for Its
capacity is infinite ... and It desires for us to accept all that
"the Father hath" ... we have learned this from the Master
Understanding our relationship with God brings us
automatically in opposition to the "world's" idea of our
relationship to God. The "world" is still separating us
from God and attempting to separate us from the Indwelling Power of God
within us. Many religions to this day continue to teach their
followers to get on their knees ... bow their heads ... or other forms
of subjugation ... rather than realize their Oneness with God.
The great metaphysician, Jesus ... never taught us to take this type of
irrational action in regards to God. He said to "look up and
not down" ... raise our head and in the same manner "raise our
consciousness" to God! But religion lacks this understanding
by and large to this very day ... even Christian religions!
What a bold and glorious statement of faith the
Master Mind Jesus made when He declared, "I Am the Light of the
world!" ... but this was not a statement from His ego or in
arrogance ... He fully and completely realized that this Light was the
Infinite shining through Him ... and that It would shine through us just
as clearly if we "let It" ... through our understanding and
acceptance of the Truth.
As we realize this great Truth of our
ever-present Oneness with God ... through our recognition of the "I
Am" within us ... we will no longer find ourselves standing outside
of the Good that we desire to experience. As we study, meditate,
contemplate ... and affirm this statement as the Truth for us ... and
condition our mind to not miss-use this "I Am" Power within by
aligning It with the wrong choices ... we will find ourselves BEING
OUTSTANDING ... in every area of our lives. "I Am"
experiencing an outstanding Life ... right now in this moment ... let us
"let" It experience this outstanding Life through us, as us
and for us ... today and always!
And So It Is!
