Here I stand before the road that others have walked before,
But this is new to me
I leap and say a prayer,
I'm on my way to where
It has been said, “the right use of the Law will set us free and through a 'wrong' use of it, we may again be entangled in bondage.” Well then, you may ask, "is there a wrong use of the Law? The Law is non-judgmental, right?
Yep, It is. I am not sure I would call it a "wrong" way, but I would definitely say I believe there's a dumb use of the Law. We all do it...allow thoughts of gunk and junk to repeat in our minds, thoughts, feelings and beliefs.
What we persist in recognizing, we persist in holding in place. ~Ernest HolmesI know, I know...we get confused - there's a lot going on – we have to take shortcuts sometimes, I mean:
Anybody been ignorant lately?If a man takes his images of thought only from his previous experiences, then he continues in the bondage which those previous experiences create … Eventually, we shall understand that all human bondage is an invention of ignorance. ~Ernest Holmes, Science of Mind
Here's another verse from the song:
When we become an open channel for infinite Good, we experience that infinite Good. We can stay narrow and stagnate, we can stay too broad and never specify or we can dip into the Law of Mind in Action and manifest abundance. Many believe there's only so much to go around or they had their chance … it's a lie! The Law, the Universe is an inexhaustible source, always expanding. Hubble's Law tells us that we live in dynamic universe.Will there be monsters, devils, demons, obstacles galore?Fairies, mermaids, unicorns, the stuff of old folklore? Will it change the way I see things or affect me drastically? An open heart is just a part of a discovery.
I can hear it from many of you...Oh yeah? OH YEAH?The source of all creation is pure consciousness…pure potentiality seeking expression from the unmanifest to the manifest. And when we realize that our true Self is one of pure potentiality, we align with the power that manifests everything in the universe. ~Deepak Chopra, The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success
Chopra says, "Our true self is one of pure potentiality."
I can hear, "Oh yeah? I never went to college!"
Chopra says, "...align with the power that manifests everything in the Universe."
I can hear, "I ain't got time for that!"
Ernest Holmes tells us, "...release the bonds of ignorance and the past."
Some people say, "Oh yeah, I have legit issues from my past to hold!"
Eric Butterworth in Spiritual Economics writes, "establish ourselves in the omnipresence of universal substance."
Others respond with, "Oh yeah, I got bills, who's gonna pay them...God?"
Jean Houston teaches in her Unlocking Your Quantum Powers course to "live in the light."
Too many folks sigh, "With my aches and pains, I am barely living at all."
Bills, aches and pains, past trauma, ageism, class-ism, able-ism, not enough-ism, time pressure... excuse, excuse, story, story, woe is me, lack, limitation ... resistance! But...
“It's overbearing,” one says, “Overwhelming,” another says, “Your stepping over the line,” still another, “You don't know my spouse, lover, partner, mate, parent, child, dog, cat or canary they're all jerks....my life is a living hell!”
Well, yes it is, a living hell, and congratulations you are using the Law perfectly....not very smartly or advantageously, maybe...but perfectly.
The game of life is the game of boomerangs. Our thoughts, deeds and words return to us sooner or later, with astounding accuracy. ~Florence Scovel ShinWhat are you throwing out there? It’s like planting an apple tree. Your mind is the rich soil; your thoughts are the seeds; your action is the water; and your feelings are the light of the sun. Most people don't get what they want because they are trained to think about what they don’t want.
Just like weeds that come up in your fertile soil, we get obsessed with drama in our lives. When negative thoughts show up, tell them to go away - take control … it's just a habit. It may not leave your mind immediately, but it will in time. Keep at it. Stop resisting. What we resist will persist
Dr. Elisha Goldstein, co-founder of The Center for Mindful Living in West Los Angeles, wrote in the article, "K.N.O.W Your Resistance," this acronym:
Know resistance is inevitable and relentless—it’s not personal.
Notice it in your day. The moment you’re aware, you have created a little space between your and it.
Open to the experience of it, how does it feel in your body? Get intimate with it so you can recognize the sensations, the thoughts surrounding it and behaviors it defaults you to. This begins the left prefrontal shift.
Whack it! Or welcome it and let it go.
The last one is my favorite. It reminds me of a sketch on some comedy show, with Bob Newhart parodying his character from a past sitcom of his. In the sketch, a client comes to the psychologists office with a story about their woes. This patient goes on and on before finally asking what to do about these thoughts. Bob Newhart's character looks at her and yells, "Stop it!" When fears, lack, limitation, past traumas, unforgivenesses, shoulda-woulda-coulda's, etc. show up? Tell them to stop! You have the power, no matter how long these thoughts and feelings have been showing up, ultimately, it is only you that has the power to rid your belief system of them.
How would we use this Power that is near to us? Certainly we would have to use it in an intimate way. And we have to believe that the power exists, and we have to believe that it is done unto us as we believe. What is belief anyway? …. Is it so hard to believe? We believe that tomorrow will come. We believe that the sun will rise in the morning and set at night….We believe that the grass will grow. And we believe that our food will digest. When we believe that, with faith, we can use the Power. ~Ernest Holmes, Secrets of Belief
|Do you believe the sun will rise tomorrow?|
|Do you believe gravity will hold you down on Earth?|
|Do you believe you will digest the food you ingest?|
Put your awareness on what you want!
Spirit can do for us only what It can do thru us.
And Get On Your Way To Your Where!
