The Golden Nugget

Tags

I am completely convinced that anyone who is suffering, is suffering needlessly.  As a result of this belief, I have been “working” during the last 17 years or so, to bring a message of Hope to all who will listen.  I strongly believe in the scripture which say, “All are called, but the chosen are few,” with a slight twist, as stated in A Course Miracles.   The Course says it is more accurate to say, “All are called, but few will listen.” Since the Creator is one of mercy, I choose to believe in the latter.  Listen up

While reading the original edition of Think and Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill,  I found what I consider to be, The Golden Nugget.  The passages that I found struck me as the key to gaining all the richness that the Creator offers.  This has to do with far more than material riches. It includes happiness, peace of mind, and all the other riches we desire.  He is reflecting on the famous  poem, Invictus by William Earnest Henley which concludes with the lines,

“I am the master of my fate, I am the captain of my soul”

Hill says that we are the masters of our fate, the captains of our soul because we have the power to control our Thought.  Referring to Henley, he goes on to say,

“He should have told us that the ether in which this little earth floats, in which we move and have our being, is a form of energy moving at an inconceivably high rate of vibration, and that the ether is filled with a form of universal power (My question…Could that Power be that which we call the Creator?) which adapts itself to the nature of the thoughts we hold in our minds and INFLUENCES us, in natural ways, to transmute our thoughts into their physical equivalent…(definition of transmute – to completely change the form, appearance, or nature of someone or something)

“He should have told us, with great emphasis, that this power makes no attempt to discriminate between destructive thoughts and constructive thoughts, that it will urge us to translate into physical reality thoughts of poverty, just as quickly as it will influence us to act upon thoughts of riches.

He should have told us, too, that our brains become magnetized with the dominating thoughts which we hold in our minds, and by means which no man is familiar, these “magnets” attract to us the forces, the people. the circumstances of life which harmonize with the nature of our dominating thoughts.

Napoleon Hill, Think and Grow Rich, The original 1937 unedited edition, pp. 32-33

I say all of this to say that we, like our Creator, are immensely powerful beings with the God-given power to create and mold our circumstances.  It is only through our ignorance of this power that we suffer.  The fact is, we create our circumstances by thought alone, plain and simple. Once we discipline ourselves to harness this tremendous power of thought, all things are possible.

Stop giving your power away to the circumstances around you and focus, instead, on that which you DESIRE and see what transpires.  I know this to be true because, week after week, I  watch people in my classes make those changes.

Remember, you reap what you sow, so start sowing the seeds of what you want, not those of what you don’t want!  The Power does not discriminate.

Are you listening?…..

Seek Ye First the Kingdom of Heaven…

In class tonight with 5 very talented individuals, I got a clear understanding of this scripture.  Matthew 6:33 says: “But seek ye first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these shall be added unto you.”  The Law of Attraction, one of the primary laws of the Universe, says the same thing.  It says that when you maintain a feeling of joy, passion, freedom, knowledge, appreciation, etc., all the good things that you desire are drawn to you.

I offer a challenge to you, just as I offer the challenge to the students in my class.  Spend a week in the feelings of joy, passion, freedom, knowledge, appreciation, etc., regardless of the conditions around you, and see the good and desirable things that flow into your life.  Some “miraculous” things have happened to students who took the challenge.

To me, this the simplest and most spiritual way for anyone and everyone to rise above their current conditions.  Like all gifts from God, it is free and will set you free.  Don’t take my word for it, but do heed the words spoken by Jesus in Matthew 6:33.  After all, you have nothing to lose except for the struggle you’ve been in for far too long.

What I Know #6

I asked a question of the Holy Spirit and since He always answers, I waited and listened. The question that I asked is, “How do I share the most powerful “secret” in the Universe with the common person?” The “secret” is the Law of Attraction. Many people have an incomplete or inaccurate understanding of this powerful Law. It simply states “that which is like is attracted unto itself”. Ignorance of, and failure to apply this law, keeps us from reaping the many gifts available to us from the Creator, the Source of all abundance. If we would simply focus on what we want (with faith), maintain the feeling of thanks and gratitude as if it we already given, you would see God’s abundance flood into your life. Again, I remind you what the scripture says, “You have not because you ask not”. The abundance of the Universe is unlimited, take the time to claim your share.

When we are in alignment with the Creator, with Source, we feel good. Our one job and one goal in life is to feel good. Why would we choose to give up the peace and joy that is our birthright and to focus on conditions around us? When we focus on conditions, we begin to lead conditional lives and fall out of alignment. When we use our internal guidance system to focus only on what feels good to us, our lives transforms and we begin to experience Heaven on earth. Try it for seven days and watch the wonderful things that begin flowing into your life. Or focus on the conditions and get more of what you focus on. Isn’t it wonderful that we have a choice?

The Source, known by many names (God, Allah, All That Is, The Creator, Great Grandfather, etc,) is everywhere, including inside of us. We have lost some of our power when we looked at God as being somewhere up in the sky. That keeps us looking outside of ourselves for what we need. We have the Power within us to do ALL things. It is said, “Greater is He that is within me than he that is in the world.” As it says in the Lion King movie, “We have forgotten who (and Whose) we are.” Turn to the Power within and ask for what you want and have the faith to know that it is always given to you. You just need to be in the right state of mind to receive it. The right state of mind is joy and appreciation. Live there, and you’ll be surprised at how fast and how often your prayers are answered. It is Law!

The essence of the Source from which we all come is Love. Love is all that there is and all that is real. All else is the lack of love. When we are aligned with that Source and that Love, we feel good. We have access to that Source at all times. We need only look for it and, fortunately, it is safely inside of us all.

What I Know – There’s Got To Be A Better Way

I have spent the first part of my life reading, studying, and applying what I have learned. On this page, I intend to share “What I know”. One thing that I know is that people have been suffering for far too long, and that the time has come to end the needless suffering. Many people know that there has to be a better way. Join me and add to the sharing as, together, we find a better way.
