I have been spewing information and advice about finding Spiritual Truth, Peace and Joy for many years now. I believe completely in everything I have ever written. I have a solid, intellectual understanding of the mechanism of creation, as well as the Man-God connection, and the expansion of the Universe and unfolding of God-In-Form. It is all clear as a bell and makes perfect sense. My understanding and philosophy answers every question I have ever had about life. I have also found dozens of New Testament verses, Buddhist texts and thousands of philosophers, authors and poets alive and past that corroborate the view I hold of reality. Yet there are times that I feel like a poser, or impostor as the advice and suggestions I put out there are not always working for me.
For those that may not have read what I write before, I am a staunch , proponent of “The Law of Attraction”- Faith- Oneness- Unity Consciousnesses and so on. My personal theology is that ALL THINGS ARE ONE THING AND THAT IS GOD—-I AM! Life is ONE DIVINE POWER experiencing itself in an unlimited, never ending dance of change. God is having a schizophrenic experience and everything we encounter is another representation of The One, taking on unique form determined by the diverse combination of variables perceived by the experiencing perspective. As such, thought, feeling, awareness, and belief, causes energy ( God) to vibrate into form and matter based upon the belief of the particular extension of Divine Awareness.
The Book ” The Secret” by Rhonda Byrne, blew the lid off this age old understanding and took it mainstream. However, the tenets put forth in that text claim, “believe and you will receive”. Millions have embraced the philosophy to no avail.
Jesus Christ taught us: “As you sow, so shall you reap”/ Faith of a mustard seed can move mountains”. With God all things are possible.
Philosophers and authors through out the ages have written ” As a man thinketh, so shall he be”.
These and thousands of other writings validate the fact that we create our reality with our belief. What we focus on with our minds, becomes real in our lives. The most prevalent thought/ belief/convictions we hold onto are reality “In-Formation”
So why then are so many struggling? How can millions be purposely creating lives of grief and pain? Once we understand that we are The Master Creator, designing the components of our lives and writing the script to our story, we should all live lives of blissful Joy, no?
Naysayers claim that these perspectives are “whoey”. Not true!
Earlier I admitted that since I am not overwhelmingly rich, drop dead handsome, as fit as a teenage age gymnast, living a life of endless joy and peace, that I feel like a hypocrite. I have long been planning to write a book on this subject, but due to the lack of my ability to manifest my desires, I have not, fearing I be labeled a fraud.
Well today I am ready to admit, that as true as these Laws Of Life are, they are not so easy to accomplish. However, we accomplish them non the less, with out being aware. There is no way around the Law. “As you believe, so you receive” UNAVOIDABLE TRUTH- NO WAY AROUND IT-HAPPENING ALL THE TIME!
The problem lies with the word “Believe” We can “Believe” superficially with our minds, but still not have an unequivocal “Knowing as truth”, and that is what stops us.
If I told you that dumping a bucket of water on your head would make you wet, you would have no problem believing that. Then when I do it, you’ll get soaked. If I told you that I discovered a new form of water that was DRY, but it looked the same, and told you I was going to dump it on you and you would not get wet, you may claim, ” Oh that is great, go ahead” But your entire life experience has solidified the fact that water will wet you, so you do not KNOW that you will be dry at the center of your being. You may believe me, as I had no reason to lie. You probably are Hoping, I am right. When I wind up to toss the bucket, you may be affirming “I will stay dry” over and over, but the FEELINGS, you will have at your core, will be bracing for a wet one! Hence you will get wet.
It turns out that intellectual belief, and Spiritual Knowing are not mutually exclusive. Believing in our minds does not alter are inner feeling and true sense of expectation. Since ALL THAT IS, GOD, SOURCE, INFINITE AWARENESS, is formless and beyond perception, matter can only be manifest by manipulating energy. Emotion “E-Motion” is energy in motion, and is the determining factor behind LIFE IN FORMATION.
The Raw Material is GOD ( formless energy, unlimited possibility, pure potential) waiting to be molded by the vibrations of each extension of reality. That vibration is ‘FEELINGS” We need to “FEEL THE WISH FULFILLED”- (Nevell Goddard) not just” Believe”. Jesus taught us to pray as though our prayers have already been answered and so they shall. Therin lies the rub!
How do we feel prosperous and abundant in the face of mounting debt and poverty.
How can I feel healthy and fit when I eat like a pig and refuse to exercise, and have gotten a dire diagnosis from my doctor?
Is it possible to feel successful after losing my job, and alienating my friends?
Can I feel peace and joy when all of my family is struggling and fighting, and the TV and internet has noting but bad news and negativity?
This is the problem. We try, we affirm, we meditate, and act as if, but the feelings are not congruent with the desires, and the “supposed” belief. So it is not this stuff does not work, IT ABSOLUTELY DOES. I for one will attest that although my life is not synchronous with my desires, it is definitely an accurate representation of my inner convictions and feelings. What you see, is what I feel.
We have been programmed with thousands of years of input convincing us of our limitation and restriction that a few affirmations even if coupled with a boat-load of desire, is not going to undo the negative program. The path is multifaceted, and unwavering. We need to completely eliminate negativity from our minds and focus ONLY ON OUR DESIRED RESULT, NOT WHAT CAUSED THE DESIRE. Faith needs to built like muscles, start out slow and gradually increase. The feeling/ vibration needed to manifest our true desire is joy accompanied with the subject matter.

IF YOU WISH TO WIN THE LOTTERY, YOU NEED TO WALK AROUND FEELING LIKE SOMEONE THAT WINS THE LOTTERY.
If your desire is health, you need to FEEL HEALTHY FIRST, then your health will improve.
If you wish to find a loving mate, you need to feel love for yourself, and content where you are.
Look around, those whose lives are miserable, have very poor attitudes and are always spreading the negativity around. You may have previously though they were justified as their lives were so awful. Well: The chicken and egg paradigm fits here, or the cart before the horse saying. Those miserable people have grief because they have negative attitudes and do not expect any more than what they have. They may WANT MORE, but they do not REALLY FEEL as though it is possible.
Sick folk are sick because they believe they are, victims are victimized because they feared becoming victims. Lonely people do not have love, because they do not FEEL love.
IT IS NO EASY TASK THIS FEELING THING. I will continue to plug away at it as I know, what I see before me has come from within me, and only I can change that.
Am I a fraud? I think not! My life is a prime example of: AS A MAN THINKETH, SO SHALL HE BE. So I continue.
The Journey IS the Destination.
