The Way to a Wonderful Life Message for October 30, 2016

                   I truly believe that each and every one of us is so tremendously creative that should we allow ourselves to truly believe in this power of creation within us that we would all be living amazingly wonderful lives.  Oftentimes when people think about creativity they get the wrong idea about the process and believe it has to do with a new invention or something similar.  Our thinking is "creativity" ... always creating.  And what we create is determined by what we "choose to think about" ... which is why the ancient sages called us to "pray without ceasing" ... in other words to think towards the positive and which brings forth a greater good and even more good than we have previously imagined.   

It is in our realization that we create by thinking and choosing from consciousness that gives us the power to make positive changes that benefit us and the world in which we live.  Dr. Robert H. Bitzer, in his book "Collected Essays of Robert Bitzer" wrote to this in these words:
"If you create something you do not like, you can change it.  What you create you can un-create.
        If conditions do not loosen their grip on you, perhaps you are not in your effective place.  Consciousness establishes its own conditions.  If things in your outer world are not moving fast enough, you need to clear your consciousness.  Perhaps you are not doing what you really want to do and are trying to use willpower to make things happen.  Don't try to go through the stone wall.  God back in consciousness.  Change your idea; change your evaluation.  Resistance, obstructions, and opposition could mean you are off your path.
      Get still and let the new idea come through.  Find yourself on your right path.  Here things work smoothly, joyously, and powerfully.  Stop struggling and forcing.  "Not by might, nor by power, but by my spirit."  Let God be you.

We must never lose sight of the truth that what we think with conviction will become our experience.  As Dr. Bitzer would teach, our expectations and mental acceptance make this so.  And so it is up to us to realize that "thinking" is the most powerful thing that we do.  As we realize that G-d is not a creator but the Source of creation this becomes more real to us.  As we begin to get still as a daily spiritual/mental practice and allow new ideas to come to us then we can think towards those specific things that create the manifested idea in our experience.  In doing so, we let G-d be the good within us to a greater more powerful degree.


Keep the faith!
