can read in the Bhagavad Gita and in the Old Testament and the Gospels
of the Holy Bible that it is done unto us according to our belief or
the measure of our faith. In contemporary terms this is called
the Law of Attraction and in 20th Century metaphysics it is call the
Law of Mind. Both terms are synonymous and both describe a
spiritual law that is universal, unchanging and eternal. When we
read the word "Lord" in spiritual writings we can substitute
it for Law of Our Mind just as we can substitute the word
"soul" for consciousness. All is Mind or Spirit and so
as we learn to tap into this law we can achieve the greater things
still that we desire to experience.
example of how this law works was illustrated to me recently when
talking with one of the followers of this ministry. She had
begun "tithing" to this work several months ago and it had
become a "pattern of belief" in her mind that through her
tithes she was increasing her measure of faith and was beginning to
see the "increase" appear in her life in various ways.
She candidly confided to me that recently she had experienced an
increase in the amount of money required of her to meet certain
unexpected expenses. It had entered her mind to wonder how she
was going to be able to send her tithe and at the same time meet her
financial requirements. When the thought entered her mind she
immediately rejected it and said to her self that all things would
work out in some way even though it was unknown to her at the time how
it would. As things will be when we have applied the Law of Mind
to our actions, her subconscious pattern demonstrated her desire to
tithe and also provided for her an increase in money that was both
unexpected and also required for her to have the state of mind to
freely give her tithe with grace and ease.
Once we tap into the Law
with both our faith and our actions it will attract to us people and
opportunities that will amaze us. As we read in the ancient
wisdom "faith without works is dead" ... we must put
ourselves in a position to realize the "works" of our faith
in order to develop a greater consciousness of success and prosperity
in all that we do. In The Way to a Wonderful Life we realize
that there are many "ways" in which we can develop our
consciousness of prosperity, health, happiness and more, we just must
find the "way" that works for us.
Let's look at these
words from the metaphysical classic "Seed Money In Action"
by John Hoshor: "In
the parable of the talents Jesus told about three men. One had
been given one talent, another had been given two talents and the
third had been given five talents.
A Roman talent was a denomination
of money approximately equivalent to $500.
The man who had the two
talents doubled his, as did the man who had the five talents.
They were each commended and promised: "thou hast been
faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many
things." In this effect this was saying that the principle
they had applied could be used over and over again ad infinitum, that
it was Unlimited in its operation.
The man who had one
talent did not multiply it but instead buried it in the ground.
He was reprimanded and told that his one talent would be taken from

your money as "seed money" and you will become prosperous,
parable of the talents Jesus illustrated why many people fail even
today in their attempts to practice the Principle of Seed Money.
with the one talent - who failed to increase it - explained:
"I was afraid, and went and hid they talent in the earth."
Many people who sometimes attempt to work the Law of Tenfold Return
fail through fear - created and perpetuated only by themselves.
The Law of Tenfold Return is only the orderly working of God in our
minds, our bodies, and our affairs. On United States dollar
bills is written: "IN GOD WE TRUST" - very good
Those who do not receive their tenfold return because of fear that it
is lost, lose their money as surely as the man who buried his talent
in the ground ultimately lost his. In trusting God (Law) one
cannot fear - and the Principle of Seed Money demands absolute trust
in God - Omniscience, Omnipotence, Omnipresence."
It is within our own
power to overcome fear and in doing so to overcome lack and
limitation. The Master Mind Jesus stated, "he who has much
will have even greater still and he who has little will lose even what
little he has" and in these words we can realize the lack of
wisdom in hanging on to our "small-ness" and realize within
our own mind that we do have the ability to tap into the infinite
abundance that is available to us through the Law of our mind. John
Hoshor's "Seed Money" concept is a "way" of using
our mind to make use of a Law that always responds to each and every
one of us in the same precise way. It responds by corresponding
to what we believe to be true for us ... providing that our belief
contains the an element of conviction. It's so easy once we put
fear and self-doubt and past experiences out of our mind and make a
definite decision to let G-d Power and Intelligence work for us,
Hoshor clarifies his "way" as follows: "There
is a distinct difference between the tithe and Seed Money. The
tithe is a gift AFTER you have made the income. Seed Money is a
gift in order to claim a TENFOLD RETURN. Seed Money applies the
Law directly, and therefore much more effectively. In utilizing
the Seed Money Principle you are saying in effect: "Here's
the SEED I plant. Here's the investment I make with God.
Here's the money with which I bless my fellow beings. I claim my
tenfold return. I am drawing on my Unlimited account with the
There is no magic in Principle. We are either believing
that it is or we are believing that it is not and we get what we
believe whichever it may be. It is part of our human experience
that we experience our ups and downs, but we can also find mastery in
keeping our faith with the Intelligence that created all that we can
see and beyond. Some final words from John Hoshor: "Surely
it is possible to demonstrate a larger than tenfold return. But
keep in mind that even Jesus, the Christ Spirit personified, did not
walk on water all of the time."
SO IT IS!
