1. something taken for granted; a supposition: a correct
assumption. 2. the act of taking for granted or supposing.
3. the act of taking to or upon oneself. 4. the act of
possession of something: the assumption of power." -
word "assumption" was not part of our language until 1250-1300
years after "the year of our Lord" (A.D.). And so this
word was not used by the Master Mind Jesus, but as we know from his
instruction to "pray believing that you
have" that this was an instruction to "assume
possession" of the thing we desire to experience in our lives.
Assumption is also inherent in the words of the Psalmist when he
declared, "the Lord is my Shepherd, I shall
not want." This spiritual principle is the key to all
answered prayer and has been demonstrated throughout history.
Inherent in Jesus' instruction is that we begin to think about what we
can believe to be true for us ... and how much we are willing to accept
for ourselves. The Law of Assumption is not a "secret"
or "something new" but a tried and true spiritual principle
that works for everyone, everywhere and for all time.
The Master Mind Jesus revealed the Living
Spirit of G-d within him when he said, "Father,
I know that you always hear me" ... and in these simple
words we realize through faith that we can make this same assumption.
Ernest Holmes writes in his 1926 classic "The Science of
Mind": "Remember God is the silent
Power behind all things, always ready to pour into our experience that
which we need. We must have "a receptive and positive faith
in the evidence of things not seen" with the physical eye but which
are eternal in the heavens. All is Mind [Spirit], and we must
provide a receptive avenue for It, as It passes out through us into the
outer expression of our affairs."
As we assume that we have the health, the
happiness, the wealth and the success that we desire, we are magnetizing
our faith and letting faith become the power that it is. We read
in the scriptures, "faith is the substance of things hoped
for" ... and this "substance" is power, chemistry,
magnetic ... as it draws to us, through our faith, all things that are
necessary for our good desires to be made manifest in our life. We
must never let the idea of faith be diminished in our mind. Faith
is a power ... and when we "assume faith" ... we can assume
the good that we hope for. We assume faith consciously by
recognizing that we have it and that we have all the faith necessary to
activate the reality of our assumptions of good and more good.
Many highly successful and wealthy individuals
throughout American history have declared bankruptcy; Abraham Lincoln,
Henry Ford, Walt Disney, Milton Hershey, and Donald Trump [or companies
that bear his name]. All of these people are recognized by us as
successful and other than President Lincoln, as wealthy as well as
successful in achieving their goals. But far too many of us let
our seeming failures or disappointments defeat us and block us mentally
and emotionally, and sometimes spiritually, from advancing forward.
Henry Ford, Walt Disney and Milton Hershey all knew that they had
something to offer the world that was better than what they had offered
before. And this "assumption" was an advancing idea in
their mind that caused them to act on their ideas even though they had
experienced what the world would call a failure. But, to them, it
was merely a misdirection of their idea and not the idea itself that had
failed. And this can be a lesson for all of us. So often
when people lose their job or face a loss, they seek to
"restore" rather than seek "more" than they had
before. When we are stopped in what we are doing, either by a
bankruptcy, foreclosure or the loss of a job ... it is a sign that we
must "assume more" than before. We must assume a greater
success and a greater consciousness of wealth and financial abundance.
When Jesus said, "all that the Father hath is mine" ... he
looked out upon the world and saw the great abundance that G-d had made
manifest for us to use and to create the "abundant life" that
is ours to assume.
From Raymond Holliwell's "Working
with the Law" we can read: "Crowd out all inferior thoughts by
superior thoughts, evil thoughts by good thoughts, ugly thoughts by
beautiful thoughts, distressing thoughts by pleasant thoughts, and you
will begin to overcome the growth of all negative and confused states of
wrong and discord. In other words, learn to think constructively
of all persons, all things, all events, and all circumstances.
Appraise them from the ideal point of view. As you do this you
will gradually transform your whole existence for the better.
These are the means whereby you may steadily promote your welfare and
advancement. As you train yourself to mentally look for the good,
you will move towards the good; and, as you form higher and larger
conceptions of the good, these elements will begin to find expression in
your words, acts, character, person, talents, powers, attainments, and
achievements; that is, all things in your life will commence to improve
as the direct result of your improved thinking. This process does
not imply, however, that you are to ignore the wrongs of life, the empty
places, and the undeveloped states of being; but that you are to think
right through and beyond them toward the hidden Good or the Principle
within that is ever seeking a higher and fuller expression. You
will, therefore, cease to condemn and to criticize in a destructive
manner; instead, YOU will seek to bring out the good in yourself and in
others, and to discover and develop the greater possibilities
Raymond Holliwell's instructions call us
to "assume the good, the greater and the better" no matter
what has happened or is happening in our lives. The conditions and
the circumstances in which we find ourselves is a reflection of what we
believe to be true for ourselves ... but just as a reflection in a
mirror can change quickly, so can what we believe to be true for us.
The Law of Assumption follows our mental and emotional assumptions just
as the laws of gravity follow our every physical movement. Let us
begin to assume a life that is advancing towards greater health, greater
wealth, greater success, greater joy and greater love in all things that
concern us ... and let us know with the Apostle that "when
that which is perfect comes, that which is imperfect comes to an
SO IT IS!
