“Give Us This Day Our Spiritual Blessing” ~ The Universe is Ours ~
In demonstrating the truth of supply we do not have to experience any peculiar emotion or psychic experience. We do not have to feel any thrills or anything of that sort. While it is true that some of these things may come, yet we should remember that what we are doing is dealing with law, and that as law it will obey us, when we comply with its nature and contact it in the right way. What we are doing, is stating something into Mind, and if the impression is clear in our own minds that it is and that it is done we have put all the activity we can put into it, until such a time as something happens in the external for us to work upon.
So many people say, “I do wish that I could feel something, when I give a treatment.” All this is a mistake and is an attempt to give a physical reason for life. What we do need to feel is that, since God is all and is good, He wants us to have only the good and, feeling this, we should take what is already made for us. Our attitude towards such a good Father should constantly be one of thanksgiving.
When we begin to prove the power of the truth we will always maintain this attitude. Know that you are dealing with a sure thing and that all you have to do is to know positively into it, and wait for the results to come in the outer. Then do what your own good sense tells you to do, for this is the thought of God through you.
More and more you will find that you are being led out of difficulty into the freedom which is the Divine birthright of every living soul. Go ahead now and look at only the things desired and never at the things not wanted. Victory will always be on the side that the majority of your thoughts; rest on it in absolute acceptance.
Some people visualize everything that they think of and many think that it is impossible to make a demonstration unless they possess the power to visualize. This is not the case. While a certain amount of vision is necessary, on the other hand it must be remembered that we are dealing with a power that is like the soil of the ground, which will produce the plant when we plant seed. It does not matter if we have never before seen a plant like the one that is to be made for us. Our thought is the seed and mind is the soil. We are always planting and harvesting. All that we need to do is to plant onlythat which we want to harvest.
This is not difficult to understand. We cannot think poverty and at the same time demonstrate plenty. If a person wants to visualize let him do so, and if he sees himself in full possession of his desire and knows that he is receiving it, then he will make his demonstration. If, on the other hand, he does not visualize, then let him simply state what he wants, and absolutely believe that he has it, and then the results will always be the same.
Remember that you are always dealing with law and that this is the only way that anything could come into existence. Don’t argue over it. That means that you have not as yet become convinced of the truth or you would not argue. Be convinced and rest in peace, assured of the outcome. As you have it in mental understanding it is the way it shall be in the world. Be it done on earth as it is in heaven.
From “Creative Mind and Success” On Sunday: “WHERE DEMONSTRATION TAKES PLACE” By Dr. Ernest Holmes ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
“SEEING CLEARLY IS GREATER UNDERSTANDING”
Since seeing is visual perception. Seeing is within is our mental properties of visualization. Our visions occur in Mind, as thought-forms before us, we are seeing what is clarified in our mental understandings of what we are observing. By clearing ourselves of uncertainties, we tend to clarify or re-visualize what we are thinking. It then becomes clarified in our Mind. – In these actions we are not changing thoughts as much as we are clearing out the thoughts that we do not want, and making a clearer understanding of what we do want.- For example: This is the difference between justreading something, and studying the same thing to retain information.
Our Mind, in its actions, changes what we out-picture as our new thoughts as we experience new expressions of Life, as they are made clear in us. These things shall include new changes, which are now our newest understandings, and even re-clarifying in our judgments. “With all thy getting, get thee first understanding.” Jesus.
When we see clearly, we understand what is clarified and what is not. We understand that confusion is built into our own state of ignorance. When we are not ignoring our higher Truth, we are set free of confusion and correct our misunderstandings; our new understandings become integrated within our inner knowledge, as we become attuned into an expansion of consciousness.
Everything comes from within us; the greater our knowledge, the greater our power. We become opened to our own directives and opened to new understandings and visualize realizations that we never knew existed. We think in pictures and we feel in songs. Our seeing and hearing then become harmonious to add values to our experiences.
Clear understanding is a total and complete change; it has no separation or cannot be known to being separated from Infinite Truth, for all is Divine Intelligence, and is the actions of God’s Infinite Mind. Since this Mind is our Mind now, and always has been, it is these actions which clarify all things. We have dominion over all things, and only when we are within correct understandings can we have dominion;without control or domination.
Since seeing is visual understanding, this explains why one picture is worth a thousand words. When we acknowledge our perceptions we often say, “I see,” meaning, “I understand.”
However, at certain times, we may not know what to do next, being unclear, and perhaps confused. By being unclear or even seeking greater truth certain answers are presently unknown to us. We are labeling this as confusion, and on that basis, we express thoughts that range in different forms. This affects our behavior, may cause disagreements and misunderstandings; which come from an unclear Mind.
When we are in a disagreement of any kind, we have only seen one side of the coin. In order to have agreements we must have a completed view of all sides, so that all things can be views with a complete and totally clear understanding. United in harmony without exception, all becomes possible through our clearest understandings.
“Clarity is not the exception to the rule; Clarity is the rule that ends all exceptions.” Since there is only one Mind, then dualistic thinking can only neutralize the possibility of absolute results. It is dualistic thoughts in you and me that like to attract the company of arguments. Therefore, we are one in our Wholeness; even when we are given to confusion. Confusion is a place of distortion breeding in our consciousness. We are then using our Wholeness in the production of situations that are based on being separated in our thinking.
This is a practical statement of truth and clear understanding. “Man cannot serve two masters at the same time. A Mind cannot serve ideas in opposition merely because the laws of physics state that one motion or direction cannot interfere with another motion, lest there be static and conflict expected, which accompany unharmonious results.”
We create undesirable results of compromises and incompletions based on our excuses and negative justifications. None of this serves our good and it is not truthful. Even though we display this un-truth; we do become aware of it almost immediately, because we believed this belief into our reality that we are experiencing. What we see is seen by many others also.
Since you can see me, then I see you. Since I can see you too, you are already seeing me. When we see each other, in our recognition, we understand our unity as beings, and in our individualizations we remain objective. We know that we are seeing each other as an understanding. Our accepted thoughts; agreed upon or not, are all in One Mind. If we can realize this, we can return to becoming equals as individualizations in this Mind, because there is no conflict when we can agree on our own common ground.
What is common to one may not be common to another. We may both be standing on the earth, and have the right to have different ideas, plant different seeds, and have different crops; all from the same soil. This does not require conflicts, and can be absent of confusion as well.

“UNDERSTANDING AND MISUNDERSTANDING”
There are many persons who are constantly unhappy because they seem always to be misunderstood. They find it hard to use the law of attraction in an affirmative way, and they keep on drawing to themselves experiences which they would rather have avoided. The trouble with them is that there is always an undercurrent of thought which either neutralizes or destroys whatever helpful thoughts they have set in motion in their moments of greater strength. Such persons are usually very sensitive, and while this is a quality which is most creative when under control, it is most destructive when uncontrolled, because it is most chaotic. They should first come to know the law and see how it works, and then treat themselves to overcome all sensitiveness. They should realize that everyone in the world is a friend, and prove this by never saying anything unkind to any one or about any one. They must within themselves see all people as perfect beings made in the Divine Image; and, seeing nothing else, they will in time be able to say that this is also the way that all people see them. Holding this as the law of their lives they will destroy all negative thought; and then, with that power which is always in a sensitive person, but which is now under control, they will find that life is theirs to do with as they please, the only requirement being that as they sow so must they also reap. We all know that anything that is unlike good is of short duration, but anything that embodies the good is like God, ever present and Eternal. We free ourselves through the same law under which we first bound ourselves.
The ordinary individual unknowingly does something that destroys any possibility of getting good results in the demonstration of prosperity. He affirms his good and makes his unity with it, and this is right, but he does not stop looking at it in others, which is wrong and is the cause of confusion. We cannot affirm a principle and deny it in the same breath. We must become what we want and we will never be able to do that while we still persist in seeing what we do not want, no matter where we see it. We cannot believe that something is possible for us without also believing the same for every individual.
One of the ways of attainment is, of a necessity, the way of universal love: coming to see all as the true sons of God, one with the Infinite Mind. This is no mere sentiment but the clear statement of a fundamental law and that man who does not obey it, is opposing the very thing that brought him into expression. It is true that through mental means alone he may bring to himself things and he may hold them as long as the will lasts. This is the ordinary way, but we want more than compelling things to appear. What we want is that things should gravitate to us because we are employing the same law that God uses. When we so attain this attitude of mind, then that which is brought into manifestation will never be lost, for it will be as eternal as the law of God and cannot be destroyed forever. It is a comfort to know that we do not have to make things happen, but that the law of Divine love is all that we will ever need; it will relieve the overworked brain and the fagged muscle just to be still and know that we are One with the ALL in ALL.
How can we enter in, if at one and the same time we are believing for ourselves and beholding the beam in our brother’s eye? Does that not obstruct the view and pervert our own natures? We must see only the good and let nothing else enter into our minds. Universal love to all people and to all things is but returning love to the source of all love, to Him who creates all in love and holds all in divine care. The sun shines on all alike. Shall we separate and divide where God has so carefully united? We are dividing our own things when we do this, and sooner or later the Law of Absolute Justice that weighs out to each one his just measure will balance the account, and then we shall be obliged to suffer for the mistakes we have made. God does not bring this agony on us but we have imposed it on ourselves. If from selfish motives alone, we must love all things and look upon all things as good, made from the substance of the Father.
We can only hope to bring to ourselves that which we draw through the avenue of love. We must watch our thinking and if we have aught against any soul, get rid of it as soon as possible. This is the only safe and sure way. Did not Jesus at the supreme moment of sacrifice ask that the Father forgive all the wrong that was being clone to Him? Shall we suppose that ‘we can do it in a better way? If we do not at the present time love all people, then we must learn how to do it, and the way will become easier, when all condemnation is gone forever and we behold only good. God is good and God is Love; more than this we cannot ask nor conceive.
Another thing that we must eliminate is talking about limitation; we must not even think of it or read about it, or have any connection with it in any of our thinking, for we get only that which we think, no more and no less. This will be a hard thing to do. But if we remember that we are working out the science of being, though it may seem long and hard at times we sooner or later do it, and once done it is done forever. Every step in advance is an Eternal step, and will never have to be taken again. We are not building for a day or a year, but we are building for all time and for Eternity. So we will build the more stately mansion under the Supreme wisdom and the unfailing guidance of the Spirit, and we will do unto all, even as we would have them do unto us; there is no other way. The wise will listen, look and learn, then follow what they know to be the only way that is in line with the Divine will and purposes. So shall all see that God is good and in him is no evil.

“MANY BLESSINGS ARE OURS RIGHT NOW”
The Precedence of Divine activity is contained in our Life. It is all inclusive in our Life, and this Life is our Life now. Divine Presence is right where we are right now. The Spirit of Life, as God, resides within us all.
Life moves through us now as new actions of perfect health and wealth are attracted to us. As this Goodness is our understanding, all of us are now contained in the perfection of these surroundings. We are blessed as Spiritual Beings within this One Life of God. All of these newest expressions of perfect health are in an abundance of wealth. We express within our Divine Loving Light, which glows from within us, illuminating all that we do.
We give thanks for all increases, as we accept all of these perfect blessings expressing as our lives right now. It is a finished action, which has already been operating in fullness as our activity of Divine Power.
As we immerse ourselves into the depths of this beautifully streaming consciousness of ours, God is creating move through our Souls, into our health, and expresses into our wealth as Loving Blessings pour over us, around us, through our Mind and Hearts. We love our prosperous lives.
We accept these Loving right actions as they displaying themselves to us. We are fulfilled in a colorful parade of Divine Loving actions and Life-giving activities. We now let go of this treatment, as we release it into law, knowing this to be so. We embrace the effects of these words as we let it be done unto us in our world now.
And so it is ~ Amen ~ By Bob Delgado
The Science of Mind Text Book, From the Original 1926 Text A Quote By, Dr. Ernest Holmes
(As we consciously speak our word, we reprogram our subjective state of mind from the conscious state of mind to bring forth the choices of what we have accepted to become in Life.
SUBJECTIVE, BUT NOT UNCONSCIOUS
The subjective mind can deduce only; it cannot, of itself, initiate anything; but it does not mean that it is unintelligent. We must be very careful not to labor under the delusion that because the subjective mind cannot reason it is unintelligent, for it is infinitely more intelligent that our present state of conscious mind, but is, nevertheless, controlled by it.
If our subjective consciousness were always clear, that is, if it never received any false impressions, the Spirit would always flow to the point of objectivity and we would never make mistakes; we would never be sick, poor, or unhappy.
What if at times we attract something that we do not want? What about all the things that we have already attracted into our lives? Must we still suffer until the last farthing be paid? Are we bound by Karma? Yes, in a certain degree we are bound by what we have done; it is impossible to set law in motion and not have it produce. What we sow we must also reap, of that there is no doubt; but here is something to think about; the Bible also says that if a man repents his “sins are blotted out, and remembered no more forever.” Here we have two statements which at first seem not to agree. The first says that we must suffer from what we have done, and the second that under certain conditions we will not have to suffer. What are those conditions? A changed attitude toward the Law. It means that we must stop thinking and acting in the wrong way.
When we do this we are taken out of the old order and established in the new. Someone will say: If that is true what about the law of cause and effect? Is that broken? No, it is this way: The law is not broken, it would still work out if we continued to use it in the wrong way; but when we reverse the cause, that is, think and act in a different way, then we have changed the flow of the Law.
It is still the same Law but we have changed its flow, so that, instead of limiting us and punishing us, it frees and blesses. It is still the law but we have changed our attitude toward it. We might throw a ball at the window, and if nothing stopped it, it would break the glass. Here is law in motion. But if someone catches the ball before it reaches the window, the glass will not be broken. Neither the glass nor the law will be broken. The flow of law will be changed, that is all. So can we, no matter what has happened in the past, so transcend the old experience, that it will no longer have any effect upon us. So if we have attracted something that is not best to keep, we will remember that we do not have to keep it. It was the best that we knew at the time, and so was good as far as it went, but now we know more and can do better.
As law works without variation, so does the law of attraction work the same way. All that we have to do is to drop the undesired thing from our thought, forgive ourselves and start anew. We must never even think of it again. Let go of it once and for all. Our various experiences will teach us more and more to try to mold all of our thoughts and desires, so that they will be in line with the fundamental purpose of the Great Mind, the expression of that which is perfect. To fear to make conscious use of the Law would be to paralyze all efforts of progress.
More and more will we come to see that a great cosmic plan is being worked out, and that all we have to do is to lend ourselves to it, in order that we may attain unto a real degree of life. As we do subject our thought to the greater purposes we are correspondingly blest, because we are working more in line with the Father, who from the beginning knew the end. We should never lose sight of the fact that we are each given the individual right to use the law, and that we cannot escape from using it.
Let us, then, go forward with the belief that a greater power is working through us; that all law is a law of good; that we have planted our seed of thought in the Mind of the Absolute; and that we can go our way rejoicing in the Divine privilege of working with the Infinite.

“Change is always a Possibility”
An idea about the word Impossible: it says I’M-POSSIBLE, because I AM! With God all things are possible. No-thing is: I’m-possible; nothing is impossible. The answer is in what we understand; by seeing it clearly as the understanding which we interpret as our vision; and only when we see it correctly. Correcting a problem is accepting a known answer for it. This answer is contained in knowing that new possibilities are not in question.
In this book the reader finds the possibilities of acquiring the use of Spiritual Power with focus and direction. It takes only one person to do this, and each one of us is involved in this action; it is called thinking. We have done these activities through unconscious actions. It is time that we all wake up to the potential of our abilities by knowing and becoming even greater than we ever have been, or hoped of being, and start doing this by being consciously aware of our actions in Mind. Our imagination precedes us as new vistas open up in us as individualized possibilities. “And Ye shall do as I have done, and even greater things shall ye do,” said Jesus.
Our newness is greatness, it all changes because of our thoughts. This book was written for greater clarity by one practitioner. There are hundreds of thousands of us, called by different names, and from different religions, which are conscious of allowing realizations to come forth, as those actions become recognized as actions of our own choosing.
Faith is still faith, in recognition we know these things as well as we know the thoughts behind them. Therefore our Faith, ideas, thoughts and results are all related to the same subjective actions and objective activities. We have become Self-consciously aware of the desires which we have accepted, and now we are demonstrating the manifest Consciousness that has come forth.
“Our Kingdom come, our will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.” What we envision in Mind shall be done in our world of experiences. We get what we release into the actions of the Law of Mind, so we shall receive what we expect through our thinking alone.
All possibilities are awaiting our decisions as a means to complete fulfillment. Everything is already finished and is presently before us. We need merely to realize it in Mind, and it expresses as our awareness of it. We join with our desires as they form from the Reality within us. We meekly reward ourselves with gifts of our own quiet choosing. “The meek shall inherit the earth.”
Those that know the Truth in Mind receive that Truth as the out picturing of formed and finished experiences; which form in the world as our Truth in expression. We are ingrained within this Truth. We all come from the One Life that we are living now.
We are the relatives of the Absolute. When we go ahead, it greets us; as we stop, it catches up to us; we become still as we are centered in that which is us and is totally surrounds us. We go into the stillness of Mind knowing Our Mind is included in this Oneness which is God’s Mind. We are the Presence of Spiritual Life in our Divine human expressions.
As Practitioners of Spiritual Truth we know the Truth of our being, and we are set free of the limiting situations of lesser thoughts. The expansion of our consciousness is increasing the value of our new experiences. This is our Science of Mind; living proof of changed results with no other efforts than accepting our desires of change as new actions appearing in our lives now.

“ONE LAW AND MANY MANIFESTATIONS”
People often ask if the Law will not bring harm as well as good. This question would never be asked if people understood what Universal Law really means. Of course it will bring us what we think. All law will do the same thing. The law of electricity will either light our house or burn it down. We decide what we are to do with the Law. Law is always impersonal. There is no likelihood of using the Law for harmful purposes if we always use it for the more complete expression of life.
We must not use it for any purpose that we would not like to experience ourselves. This should answer all questions of that nature. Do I really want the thing I ask for? Am I willing to take for myself what I ask for other people?
How can we use the Law for evil if we desire only the good? We cannot and we should not bother about it. We want only the good for ourselves and for the whole world; when we have started causation, at once the Law will set to work carrying out our plans.
Never distrust the Law and become afraid lest you misuse it. That is a great mistake, all Law is impersonal and cares not who uses it. It will bring to all just what is already in their thought. No person can long use it in a destructive way, for it will destroy himself if he persists in doing wrong. We have no responsibility for anyone except ourselves. Get over all idea that you must save the world; we have all tried and have all failed.
We may, by demonstrating in our own lives, prove that the Law really exists as the great power behind all things. This is all that we can do. Everyone must do the same thing for himself. Let the dead bury their dead, and see that you live. In this you are not selfish but are simply proving that law governs your life. All can do the same when they come to believe, and none until they believe.

“The Blessing” ~~~~~~~~~~~
“HOW WE RELATE AND CREATE CHANGES”
We relate consciously is by attracting our beliefs from our subconscious mind. Thought recognitions and reactions come from our choices of beliefs. We can add or subtract our beliefs as we make conscious choices, and take steps into a new direction. We can relate to changes by multiplying what we appreciate. We recognize Goodness through the feelings we already have inside of us. The instant we choose to think differently, we start to feel differently; our behavior and attitudes follow suit. The subjects in our lives change as we objectify them because we have changed, therefore everything is as new as we have become. “If I be lifted up, I shall draw all men unto me,” as Jesus said.
It only takes one change in one person to change every relationship in their own life. Jesus did not think or say, “I can change anyone or anything.” What he did say is this, “Behold, I make all things new.”“What I have done, you can do, and even greater things shall ye do.” He did not make us new; he changed Himself. In so doing, He became new in relationship to all things of His surroundings. When we dismiss certain things in our circles of consciousness, some of those in our circles of acquaintances may drop away from us, and some may even come closer, and even new ones may enter. Be not mistaken, we are who have changed, and all things shall be added or taken away through those activities behest of our exchanges in consciousness.
By His example, if we desire changes, and so it is that we are the ones that need to change within ourselves. When Jesus healed someone, he knew they were already well. He celebrated their health within His Presence. That which is within Him is within all of us.
From The Gospel of St. Thomas; verse 14 – Jesus said unto them, “If you fast, you will give rise to sin for yourselves; and if you pray, you will be condemned; and if you give alms, you will do harm to your spirits. When you go into any land and walk about in the districts, if they receive you, eat what they will set before you, and heal the sick among them. For what goes into your mouth will not defile you, but that which issues from your mouth – it is that which will defile you.”
Since we might be working on greater health, we would then require some type of to ailment to oppose us. Opposition is not being related with anything in a healthy way. Opposition is conflict and discord. Harmony and health is included with our inner peace, and it is always in good measure. When we think as a healthy person thinks, act as a health person acts, we display the consciousness of health as our way of being.
We cannot help anyone unless we help ourselves first. The Truth is that we are helping everyone by helping ourselves first. First of all, there is one less person to take care of in the world, because we are taking responsible care of ourselves. “As it is within, so it is without.” Nothing in our life happens without, as our inner agreements are accepted within us. We let things happen through us. Nothing happens to us in Life unless we allow it, or attract it. We are happening to Life as the changes we make in us.
We are released into having our desires as we believe our desires have already been received by us. Our changes are made real from within us as we accept and affirm life. I now affirm: “I am thankfully accepting the Goodness I desire from within me as I now receive these experiences in my new awareness of Life; I embrace these Loving expressions now.”
And so it is ~ Amen By, Bob Delgado ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
“Give Us This Day Our Spiritual Blessing” ~ The Universe is Ours ~ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
One of the most necessary things to remember is that we cannot demonstrate life beyond our mental ability to embody. We give birth to an idea only from within ourselves. What we are, we put into our thinking. What we are not, we cannot put into it.
If we are to draw from Life what we want, we must first think it forth into Life. It always produces what we think. In order to have success, we must first conceive it in our own thought. This is not because we are creators, but because the flow of Life into manifestation, through us, must take the form we give to it, and if we want a thing we must have within ourselves the mental equivalent before we get it.
This is what Jesus meant when he said that we must believe when we pray. This belief is providing within us that something which knows before it sees what it asks for.
For instance, suppose a man is praying for activity (our idea of prayer is the accepting of a thing before we get it) in his affairs. First, before this activity can come, he must have it within himself; he must come to see activity in everything; there must be something that corresponds to the thing that he wants; he must have a mental equivalent.
We find that we attract to ourselves as much of anything as we embody within.
As water will reach only its own level, so our outward conditions will re-produce only our inner realizations.
A man will always draw to him just what he is. But we can learn to provide within the image of what we desire and so in a definite way use the law to get just what we need. If at first we do not have a great realization of activity we will have to work on what we do have, and as our outer conditions come up to meet the inner cause, we will find that it will be much easier to enlarge the inner receptivity for something greater and more worthwhile. Of one thing we may be assured–we must all start somewhere, and that somewhere is within ourselves. In this within we must make the affirmation, and there, too, we must do the real work of realization.
At the first the way may seem hard, for we are constantly confronted with that which seems to be, and we are not always sure of ourselves nor strong enough to overcome, but we may rest content in the assurance that we are growing. Every day we will be providing a bigger concept of life, and with the inner growth we will have an enlarged power to speak forth into the Creative Mind, with the result that we shall get a fresh impulse and be doing a bigger thing for ourselves. Growth and realization are always from within and never from without.
The old race suggestion of fear and poverty and limitation must be done away with and daily we must clear our thought from all that limits the One from showing forth in our life. Remember that you are dealing with One power, and not with two. This will make it easier, for you do not have to overcome any condition, because conditions flow from within out, and not from without in.
A man going to a new town will at once begin to attract to him just what he brings in his thought. He should be very careful what he thinks. He should know just what he wants and daily give it over to the Supreme Mind, knowing that It will work for him. Old thoughts must be destroyed, and new must take their places. Every time the old thought comes look it squarely in the face and declare that it has no part in your mind. It has no power over you. You state the law and rely on it to the exclusion of all else. Daily try to see more and to understand more, feel every day that you are being especially looked after. There is no special creation for any individual, but we all specialize the law every time we think into it. For all our thought is taken up and something is always done with it.
A good practice is to sit and realize that you are a center of Divine attraction, that all things are coming to you, that the power within is going out and drawing back all that you will ever need. Don’t argue about it, just do it, and when you have finished leave it all to the Law, knowing that it will be done. Declare that all life, all love and power are now in your life. Declare that you are now in the midst of plenty. Stick to it even though you may not as yet see the result. It will work and those who believe the most always get the most. Think of the Law as your friend. always looking out for your interest. Trust completely in it and it will bring your good to you.

“How Does Your Garden Grow?”
People plant carrots and when they sprout up it shows the green parts of the stems. It doesn’t look like a carrot. So we must not judge our changes by appearances. I say this affirmation that I learned about this: “I Let Go and I Let the Carrots Grow.”
As “I let go and Let the Carrots Grow,” planting the seeds of growth, and we must allow the sprouts to become plants we intended. And sometime, at first appearance, it doesn’t look right to us.
Jesus spoke to farmers, and simple minded folks. He said to leave the TARS – weeds, amongst your newly planted garden, until the new shoots, or roots, take hold, and then take the weeds out. If we pull on the all that appear as green, then we may uproot the carrots as well.
He meant plant your good thoughts and be accepting of what you want and place them in God’s Mind, our Mind. And don’t worry about the negatives, until you garden is stronger, then take them out. When our positive beliefs become stronger, then we can take out the negative thoughts later on. (This is the “Be still and Know” part). So then, we are not putting too much attention on the negatives, and seeing that the positives are growing with our expectations. We turn fears into faith and balance ourselves in Love.
This is what I came to in the past few days: I know that neighboring thoughts are in my consciousness. I am planting a new garden, filled with new conscious thoughts. By knowing I am in the Kingdom, puts the Kingdom in my Life. I am not concerned with the negatives for now. I am paying attention to what seeds that I have been planting.
My new actions are not concerned by those negative thoughts of those that neighbor me. Therefore, I am not concerned with these negatives for now. I notice them and let them pass without putting a charge on them. I am dwelling on my inner Presence and allow God to move through me and guide my actions.
“He leadeth me beside still waters.” I am now, in quiet and confident knowing of my positive actions that are taking root. “Go forth and tell no man,” Jesus said. “Go into the stillness and know I am there within you.” Now I am “Letting Go and Letting the Carrots Grow!”
And so it is ~ Amen ~ By Bob Delgado ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
