are surrounded by many beautiful things, most of which you take for
granted or accept in a cursory sort of way. You accept them
without giving them any deep meaning. You are apt to have that
same attitude toward great truths. You give lip service but miss
the deep meaning that would revolutionize your life. Mind is all.
God is the only power. God is love. You could go on and on.
You know the commandments, the axioms and aphorisms of truth. You
can recite them by heart. However to prove these truths and
live them makes a greater demand upon you.
You are surrounded by a principle of wealth which is imploring
you to accept it and use it. You need a personal commitment.
Emerson said that if he took unto himself all the beauty which
surrounded him he would surely give it out again. He identified
with the beauty of the mountains and became part of what he was
beholding. That is what is meant by consciousness. You
are surrounded by prosperity and great good. Consciousness reaches
out, recognizes what it beholds, accepts it and makes it part of your
This develops a new terminology. You are surrounded by limitless
good. You can affirm you have abundant wealth. All of that
can be true. You have all these potentials of being, but you must
use them. This is where consciousness comes in. Having all
wealth and all health does not necessarily imply that you are taking
advantage of what is included for you. A
definite creative step is necessary. You have abundant
wealth and you work mentally to have the consciousness of what you have.
You create the consciousness of abundance and acquire the consciousness
of prosperous being. That will do the trick. You get the
consciousness of having it.

possibilities. You do not merely affirm what you have, you
affirm that you have the consciousness of being successful.
Someone may be waiting for you in your reception room, but this would
not imply that you knew they were there. Consciousness connects
you with the fact or the truth of being.
You are, in your experience, what you are conscious of being. The
whole universe is yours, but you can appropriate only according to your
consciousness. "All things that the Father hath are
mine" - but it is obvious that you can actually have only that of
which you are conscious. From this you can see that you should
treat/pray not merely for what you want but for the consciousness of
being what you want. You live in a world of great beauty
and you can become conscious of this. Limitless abundance is
yours, and you can become conscious of what you want.
Consciousness identifies with your good and makes it part of your being.
Mind knows no limitation and manifests according to the law of
consciousness. You are limited by your belief, but you are not
limited by Principle. Your potentials are inexhaustible, but your
consciousness is the determining factor. You have a little or a
lot. The Infinite does not care and does not restrict.
BIGNESS brings consciousness forth; smallness contracts. YOU ARE
Thank You, Dr. Bitzer, for blessing us with your consciousness.
