Listen to the Radio Broadcast of this
is a great difference in the things that we want and the things that we
need for most of us. There are those that tell us that "G-d
meets all our needs" but for many of us meeting our needs does not
fulfill our heart's desires. For example we may need
transportation to and from work. A bicycle, for many of us would
meet this need. Yet, in our heart we may want a BMW X5 and if we
receive a bicycle, what we want is not met but what we need is.
This is why we must make a "definite or positive choosing" of
what it is that we "need" to fulfill our heart's desires or
otherwise we will end up with disappointment ... and perhaps a bicycle
that ends up in our next garage sale. Many of those who teach
spiritual treatment or effective prayer, will teach us to say lovely
words and these lovely words will console our mind but they won't draw
to us those things necessary for us to realize the good that we want.
The Master Mind Jesus stated that we are to "ask and we shall
receive" ... and this "asking" must be a definite or
positive choosing. And what is meant by a "positive
choosing"? It means we are positive that this is something
that we know will take our mind from wanting to rejoicing ... not
disappointment or compromise with the desires of our heart. |
There is no peace and no
satisfaction in merely accepting what meets our needs. The desires
of our heart are just as important to us as the things that we need.
We need food and most of us need food every day. But there is no
great sense of satisfaction in eating beans and potatoes when we desire
to eat in nice restaurants or bistros where food is opulently prepared
and satisfying both to our need for food and our sense of living a
prosperous life. The desires of our heart that we are to "ask
and receive" are those things that bring us a greater sense of joy.
People who feel a genuine sense of joy in their lives are always
reflecting this joy towards all those they come into contact with.
A lack of joy is a symptom of no peace and no satisfaction in our soul.
look at these words from W. Frederic Keeler and although this is written
with some traditional words describing G-d, we can understand that the
words Father, He, His and Him refer to the Unseen Presence of
Intelligence, Power and Spirit: “Thinking
as though you were in the Presence of God is the most simple kind of
thinking and the most powerful thinking. ... But most of us have a
false habit of believing that we must do something in the nature of a
great or mysterious mental stunt in order to come into the full powers
of being. ... To practice the Presence will cure us of such nonsense and
will show us the way. ... He who approaches God habitually in
consciousness will surely experience healing and will come into a guided
wisdom. ... To practice the Presence by thinking in special prayer
times, we simply do our best to rest alertly in His Peace. In
thought we dwell upon and within His Peace. We endeavor to think
as He would like to have us think. ... He is our Father (Creator), our
Protector, the One who loves us. We praise Him. We sit
before Him in Peace. We offer Him the good things of our heart and
of our thoughts. ... In turn we accept from Him the Good Things He
has for us.
At first we do this very simply but
we find that a sort of science develops within it all. We speak.
We rest. We listen with our hearts, not with our ears, and He
speaks to us in Spirit, in intuitional ideas. It becomes prayer
and answer-to-prayer and we find that our troubles dissolve. Not
only does our troubled mind become more calm, more perfectly at Peace,
but our whole life changes, and everything about us changes for the
better. Friends come into our lives, and things that are easily
recognizable as being better for us occur.
Within a reasonable time we
prove that we are dealing with a tremendous Law for Good , for our good,
for God's Good, and for the good of everyone. No one can deny
this, nor does any one ever deny it who has really and repeatedly tried
it. ... This does not mean that one or two or a dozen attempts of this
kind will accomplish all this. But it does mean that it will all
occur perfectly according to our ability actually to come into the
Presence. It is something to be learned and it is something God
will help us learn. In fact, He will give us the perfect ability
to come into the Presence if we persist in the seeking.”
When the Master Mind Jesus called us to
"love G-d with all your heart, with all your mind and with all your
soul, and equally important, love your neighbor as your self" .. he
was telling us that the Presence of G-d Is Omnipresent ... everywhere
Present and within every living thing and our "recognition" is
"registered" when we let love be our first thought about
everyone and everything. The spiritual practices that will cause
"all good things to be added unto you" are simple, but require
persistence. It is persistence that has caused so many people to
realize the right ideas, the right guidance and the next step that was
necessary to create something new for themselves and for the world
around them. We will never experience the Peace of G-d unless we
are willing to seek it. And we must seek it in our mind even when
our mind is filled with doubts and worries and frustrations and fear.
As we turn from these things and persist in realizing this Peace, we
shall experience it.
Butterworth in his book "The Universe is Calling" shares his
wisdom about how finding our inner peace is so important:
interesting thing is that when you have a concern over some difficulty
which has caused you to pray about it, you approach your prayer with a
built-in anxiety or tension. Thus, the very first step in the
science of prayer is the conscious act of letting go. If you begin
your prayer with a judgment about the severity of the problem, you are
saying, in effect, "Boy, this is going to be a difficult one."
You may clench your fists and tense your body. It will be very
much like driving with the brakes on.
So, settle with the attitude
of hopelessness. Deny it, let it go. Prayer is no time for
physical tension. If your hands are taut, that is a good signal
that you need to let go. You may say, "I have prayed all
night about this problem." But you are deluding yourself.
That was not prayer. You were holding onto the problem all night.
You may have commenced your prayer with "Dear Lord" and
concluded it with "Amen" - but you probably had an orgy of
worry and self-pity in between. Let go ... and let God.
"It is your Father's good pleasure to give you the Kingdom"
(Luke 12:32). The whole universe is conspiring to establish you in
health and harmony. Let go and let it unfold. The universe
is calling you to wholeness.”
And so we have two different spiritual practices or ideas in
which we can begin to use to realize the good results of our prayers.
Both Keeler and Butterworth have given us insight into the nature of the
Spirit and how It responds to us. We know that it always
"corresponds" to us and so we must give it that to correspond
to that It can work "through" ... peace with the need, peace
with the problem, peace with the good desires ... and soon enough, and
always right on time, we shall realize this peace.
SO IT IS!
