"The Art Of Being Yourself"
The Way to a Wonderful Life Message for November 26, 2017
reviewing the Merriam-Webster Dictionary's definition of
"choice" I would like for us to keep these in mind as we
read this message: 1) care in selecting; 2) the best
part. We are always choosing and making choices yet for many
of us our choices have given us consequences we did not consciously
choose for ourselves. This is why a daily habit of consciously
choosing that which we accept for our selves is so very
imperative that we examine the things we want and ask ourselves is
this our best choice? Are we taking the right amount of care
in selecting that which we choose to pray for or affirm for
ourselves? We all have read that all prayers are
answered. We have also read that sometimes the answer to our
prayers is no. Both statements are correct but the one saying
no and the one that is causing our prayers to go unanswered is our
very own consciousness. To better understand consciousness we
may think of its synonym "soul." It is a term used
in the ancient wisdom frequently. In the Old Testament of the
Holy Bible which includes several Books of The Torah, the word
"soul" appears over 750 times. The great mystics
throughout the ages believed that the soul is eternal.
Sometimes the word "spirit" is used interchangeably for
soul. In other words, both terms reference life and the
invisible internal force that makes us an intelligent form of Life.
conscious choices selecting the best of what we desire to experience
is not complex. It is a matter of choosing that which makes
our soul come alive to a greater degree. It is to know that
what we are choosing makes us feel happier, healthier and more
accepting of the abundance that is available to us. It is the
choices that take us out of our comfort zones and make us more fully
engaged in the game of Life (thank you Florence Scovel Shinn).
Too often people, on a subjective level, are frightened of failure
so they fail to realize that which they consciously believe they
desire. Unless we are willing to take the time to displace the
ghosts of failures past in our mind we shall find delays in
realizing our desires; perhaps even a failure to realize them.
our negatives past and present in our experience begins by
making new choices and making them with confidence. The more
we center our mind on the best we can think of for ourselves the
less we will be troubled in our mind with the negatives; fears,
doubts, worries, superstitious stuff. Consider the words from
the ancient wisdom "ask and you shall receive." Most
people will say these words are too good to be true. Or they
have asked already a thousand times for something and they still
don't have it. But, unanswered prayer or ineffective
affirmations can be corrected when we understand the Principle
behind the words. A simple illustration of the
"mind-set" that we must have; or perhaps the attitude that
we must gain a sense of in our mind, is the action in mind we take
when we give a Valet Parking Attendant our ticket. We ask, in
other words, we claim that which we know is ours. When we can
think, speak, visualize into the Great Invisible with this same
sense of "claiming" the choice things for ourselves we
shall receive them.
on these words from The Course In Miracles which I will offer here
to miracles does not lie in your illusions about yourself. It does
not depend on any magical powers you have ascribed to yourself, nor
on any of the rituals you have devised. It is inherent in the truth
of what you are. It is implicit in what God your Father is. It was
ensured in your creation, and guaranteed by the laws of God."
And so it is!
