POWER , PRAYER and ME

power

Week 21 focuses our attention on power.

27. The Divine Mind is the Universal Mind; it makes no exceptions, it plays no favorites; it does not act through sheer caprice or from anger, jealousy or wrath; neither can it be flattered, cajoled or moved by sympathy or petition to supply man with some need which he thinks necessary for his happiness or even his existence. The Divine Mind makes no exceptions to favor any individual; but when the individual understands and realizes his Unity with the Universal principle he will appear to be favored because he will have found the source of all health, all wealth, and all power.

As I sit composing this post my thoughts are focused on integrating my personal experience with prayer, God and the teachings of this course.  I believe that each traveler on this journey will interpret ‘universal  mind’ in terms of their own experiences.  For me ‘universal mind’ is synonymous with God.   I view the universality of the universal mind as the same as the Holy Spirit which lives within all Christian believers.  I also accept the power of the mind and our thoughts.  I love applying the Laws of Attraction, Growth and Substitution; taking control of my thoughts.  I know that God is all powerful.

Luke 1:37

“For nothing will be impossible with God.”

I have seen the manifestation of several items on my DMP [definite major purpose].  You are right.  There is a but coming.  The following statement  does not negate what I have previously stated.  Rather it reflects that I am still in the process of growing and need more ‘practice’.  I consciously focus my thoughts on giving, helping and being kind.  I complete most of the planned tasks for a given day.  I continue on the mental diet and replace negative thoughts with positive ones.  But [there it is] I am not experiencing financial growth.  Do I need to reassess  my 80/20 activities?  Am I focusing on the wrong tasks?  These are questions for me to review and re-evaluate.  I am so pleased with my progress.  I plan to bump up my conversations with the Lord [prayer time].  I will not only be more specific in asking for my needs but also requesting direction [and being quiet to hear His answer].  I am also boosting my interactions with Him by reading a chapter in His Word prior to my Sit.

As I mentioned much of my DMP has already been manifested, new car, trip to South America, improved health, tithing on current income.  I am not tithing the amount stated in my DMP as I have not reached that targeted income.  So, Rome wasn’t built in a day and it may take a few more days for the full manifestation of my DMP.  Moreover, I have noticed as I progress I revise and update my DMP.  Maybe I will remain a work in progress.That is good because when things stop growing they die. Thanks for letting me share with you.

WEEK 12–2014 MKMMA: LOVE and POWER

love    power3

Tis the week before Christmas and all through the house thoughts are focused on what?  My thoughts are on finding ways of sharing my love with others—family and friends, but also, others in general. 

Haanel 12:17 states

…every thought has the inherent germ of truth in order that the law of growth will bring into manifestation good, for good alone can confer any  permanent power.

12:18 The principle which gives the thought the dynamic power..is the law of attraction, which is another name for love….the law of love…It is feeling that imparts vitality to thought.  Feeling is desire and desire is love.  Thought impregnated with love becomes invincible.

12:19…the law of love is the creative force behind every manifestation, not only of atoms, but of worlds, is the creative force behind every manifestation, not only of atoms, but of worlds, of the Universe, of everything of which the imagination can form any conception.

I believe my thoughts can provide me not only the power to achieve my DMP, the goals and objectives of my life, but also aid me in guiding others to similar successful actions.  I want to engage in actions that will help others, spiritually, physically and financially. I initiated this MKMMA journey with the goal in mind of improving myselfAlong the way my idea of a successful me has changed.  The themes of this course that have resonated most with me are the ones involving love.

Our power comes from our thoughts.

12:21 It is the combination of Thought and Love which forms the irresistible force, called the law of attraction.

12:25 Power comes through repose.  It is by concentration that deep thoughts, wise speech, and all forces of high potentiality are accomplished.

As we have learned in this course, knowledge does not apply itself.  We must take an active role.  Take control of our thoughts and connect with the power within.  Og Mandino notes in Scroll II

“Never will I allow my heart to become small and bitter , rather I will sharfe it and it will grow and warm the earth.”  I can focus on the negative—she did this to me—she said that—or I can use the mental diet and the law of dual thought.  I can choose to think of love and ways I can share it.  In this season of giving I choose to focus on LOVE and the POWER of THOUGHT.

WEEK 5—2014 MKMMA: CLAIMING MY INHERITANCE..

inherit1a             inheritance

John 14:2{KING JAMES}

In my Father’s house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you.

I am claiming the  mansion that has been prepared for me. My mansion is surrounded by fertile land which produces enough food to feed a nation.  The domestic animals and the nearby woods provide meat for all.  Those living with or  near me not only have their needs met but also the desires of their heart.  I claim this inheritance and live in the house provided making sure that none of my co-laborers are in need.  I share my love and wealth with  all whom I encounter. I utilize my power to bring peace, prosperity and harmony to all.  In taking possession of my property I make sure that it is well kept and maintained.  Negligent upkeep is not allowed.  Rather, we, those who dwell here, delight in maintaining and improving our home.  We proclaim to those near and far that this  is ‘ours’ and invite them to share in our prosperity.

My children are taught ‘give more, get more’ and already have adopted this point of view.  Thus when they come into their inheritance they will continue in this vein. Haanel tells us in item 28 “All possession is the result of the accumulative attitude of mind, or the money consciousness; this is the magic wand which will enable you to receive the idea, and it will formulate plans for you to execute,…”

How awesome to know it is ‘already done’.  My prosperity already exists.  All I need do is ‘earnestly desire it,’ ‘assert [my] claim,’ and ‘take possession.’
