From "Collected Essay Of Robert Bitzer" -
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. Go 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.
"You can overcome any
obstacle. You can achieve the most tremendous things by faith power. Have
big faith - not any old watered-down faith,
and the change in you and in your experience will be little short of

CONTINUED - part
GOD IN ME IS MY PERFECT HEALTH
We recognize God-in-man as the
complete life in man. Whatever we think about the Self is
identified with God-in-man and becomes the expression.
God-in-man is recognized as Perfect Life - expressing Health.
Man IS perfect man expressing God in a
perfect body, in a perfect universe.
ISSUE THE DIVINE COMMAND
We are careful not to petition
God for things. We become conscious of our oneness with God and
our positive Word speaks this God-ness into form according to our
desire. Jesus had a positive consciousness of his oneness with
God. When he healed, he spoke from this consciousness, giving
the specific command. He did not say, "Can you stretch
forth your hand?" Nor did he ask, "God give me the
power to heal this man's arm." Within this consciousness of
power, he said, "Stretch forth thine hand." Treatment
takes place when man claiming his authority, uses it.
TREATMENT DOES NOT AFFECT GOD
Treatment changes only man's
mental attitude - not God's. It creates a receptivity within
man's consciousness which lets the God desire manifest.
EVERY THOUGHT REVEALS TRUTH
In the Perfect Treatment we are
completely conscious of our oneness with the God Principle and know
that every phase of our thinking is unified with the God Mind.
FOLLOW A DEFINITE PLAN
In treating we follow a definite
plan, yet we must keep the mind open. Our clearest and most
concise idea may expand through illumination.
DO NOT LET NEGATIVE BELIEFS CREATE
Do not energize false
beliefs. Many people are self-hypnotized into accepting
limitations. Let the Truth about yourself reveal itself to
you. Accept - without compromise, your complete freedom.
REFUSE TO LET YOUR OWN THOUGHT LIMIT YOU
Not even the self can limit the
Self. We should declare our freedom from self-imposed
limitations. Become so aware of the Truth that you do not
possess the power to bind yourself.
THE POWER WITHIN BREAKS EVERY BOND
If any mental tendencies seem to
crystallize conditions around us we must build a consciousness of
power within which equalizes the demand from without. The Truth
then pushes forth from within into its free and complete expression.
MAN IS FREE BY DIVINE AUTHORITY
We do not free ourselves through
will power, but because the Divine Intention within us maintains Its
own ability to function fully, completely and freely.
The idea back of our
manifestation of life is a Perfect Idea. This thought in the
Infinite Mind is indestructible and changeless and can never be less
than the Perfection of God. God thought Perfect Man, Perfect
Expression, Perfect Universe. LOVE HARMONIZES
Resentment can create a chemical
reaction in the blood stream. We can not have war without
hatred. We should free our minds from all resentment, bitterness
and hatred. Divine Love within us will find an outlet through
us. Divine Love harmonizes our thought. God-in-us is
Peace. THE POWER IS WITHIN
Within the Real Self is Power to
maintain Complete and Perfect Health in a Perfect body.
Within the Real Self is Power to sustain at
all times the Abundant Supply. INTELLIGENCE RESPONDS TO INTELLIGENCE
Treatment realizes that we
already live in a Perfect Universe which needs to be seen mentally
before it can become a part of our experience. We are dealing
with Intelligence so we must THINK. Spirit responds to our word,
but if we do not speak the word we can not expect the response.
Our good will come to us as we are definite and positive in knowing
our good. NO SELF-DEPRECIATION IN GOD
A person who feels sorry for
himself or who thinks that all things are working against him, creates
more conditions to further his depression. His self-pity is very
far-reaching and influences everyone whom he contacts. A person
who continually things that business is dull, draws to himself those
who also think hard times or depression. We must reverse this
tendency by knowing that God-in-man is opulent, does not admit poverty
but manifests abundance now.
THINK PROSPERITY AND SEE ABUNDANCE
No matter what a person's
financial status is, never think of a person as poor nor see a person
as destitute. Go through the appearance and know that the
Perfect Life is Abundantly supplying every need. Our helping a
person in a material way must not interfere with our God vision.
The God Power radiates from us and everyone we meet is helped,
strengthened and prospered because they, too, have touched our
OUR STANDARD OF OPULENCE IS MAINTAINED
Our clear consciousness draws to
us those who think as we do. The standard which we establish
automatically attracts those who are similar. The person who
wants to be in the atmosphere of Abundance, must recognize that
abundance and Opulence are established within his consciousness and
THAT which is within him is made manifest everywhere. Our
thought visualizes that which is prosperous or opulent and which can
abundantly multiply itself.
GOD IS EXPRESSED
So many times we think Treatment
is the manipulation of mental laws. Treatment is the release of
the Presence of God-in-us. It opens the avenues within our own
thought to make us receptive to this God Power.
KEEP THE THOUGHT NEW
Intelligence is ever moving. Out
thought must be constantly expanding. Every day should bring us
new ideas about life. Each day we should find new ways of doing
RECOGNIZE THE SELF
We treat to recognize the
ability of the Self - to know what we have to give to life. Our
self-recognition opens the channel for our expression.
HAVE NO ENVY AND NO BELIEF IN COMPETITION
Each person's place in life is
unique. No one can take from us that which belongs to us and
which we have consciously recognized as our expression. Likewise
we can not deprive another of his good.
KNOW WHAT YOU WANT TO BE AND DO
The clear conception of what you
want to do gives definite direction to your actions. You get no
credit for what you do not do. You may rejoice that you are not
retrogressing but you may be standing still. You must project
your consciousness in a constructive manner. To go forward you
must have a sense of progress. Not the pitfalls nor mistakes
that you have avoided or omitted but the positive Goodness which you
have put into your living determines your progress. Life
responds to your definite knowingness.
KNOW YOUR PERFECTION
Treatment changes the individual
consciousness. Do more than make affirmations about the
grandeur, perfection and glory of God. God knows that God is
perfect and good. Realize that the Truth about God is the Truth
in man's consciousness now.
