We are told that the world economy is in serious trouble. This conviction is supported by experts, analysts and financial scholars who make their views known in newspaper, radio, television and the internet. We also feel this impact on our wallets, which are thinner than ever before. This situation impacts the mindset of each one of us individually. “Mindset” is defined by Webster as, “a mental attitude that influences and determines events and circumstances”.
Guess what? The law of “like begets like” works! The mindset of lack, limitation and depletion of resources manifest itself in like conditions. It’s a self-fulfilling prophesy. Your mindset doesn’t make any value judgments. It manifests whatever it is told; good or bad. It is the law!
If you’ve read or seen The Secret, you know they tell you if you think you’re broke, you’ll be broke! They even offer a blank check you can write yourself (from the Universe) and fill out any way you want. The idea is if you think you’re rich, you will be rich.
People are accepting the world belief in a lack of resources. This is challenged by the fact that we live in an infinite universe that, by definition is, “the whole body of things without limit or exception and accruing everywhere”. This is a classic example of the phenomenon of opposites. As detailed throughout my writings, opposites cannot coexist.
One is real and true; the other is unreal and fraudulent. The unlimited abundance of the universe and the laws and principles that govern it, represents what Webster defines as, “the creative and controlling forces of the universe”. As such they cannot be successfully challenged, debated, circumvented or altered.
You see this phenomenon at work when you balance your checkbook. If you make an error in your calculations, it will not balance. Knowing that the laws governing mathematics are inviolable, you take your thought off the conditions of the error and apply the rules of mathematics. This destroys any and all opposite, fraudulent concepts that claim to challenge it. The law is absolute!
Dr. Einstein tells us that, “no problem can be solved from the same level of consciousness that created it. We must learn to see the world anew”. The universal problem of lack, limitation and depleted resources can never be resolved while we are accepting it as a real and valid concept. We must see the situation from a different perspective if we ever want to resolve it.
Understand this: You cannot experience anything other than that of which you are consciously aware. The only place you experience a lack of supply exists only within your own individual consciousness. It is YOUR conscious awareness and YOU are alone in your experiencing it. Anything that appears to be external to this conscious awareness is, according to Webster, “fraudulent and fictitious; an unreal illusion”. Until you can see this, your efforts to “get more supply” will be tantamount to trying to put water into the mirage in the desert or trying to straighten out the railroad tracks that appear to converge at the horizon.
Remember, because your sense of lack is not real, any effort to “correct” the situation means that you still believe there is a real situation to correct and that it is a real power over which you must gain control. There is a slogan I have in my Thought Box that reminds me that “When you react to appearances, you are not in control”.
Money is not your supply. Money is one form your sense of supply takes; it is an effect of your mindset. The real nature of supply is not unlike honesty, love, gratitude, etc. Although intangible, they are real and cannot be depleted. They are infinite and omnipresent. You can prove this in your own experience by maintaining a conscious awareness of it to the exclusion of anything else.
When this conscious incorporeal sense of abundance dominates your mindset, you find it manifesting itself in appropriate forms. Remember, you are not trying to correct a fraudulent illusion and trying to make it real. Your focus must be on being quiet and allowing the “controlling forces of the universe” to express themselves in your experience. You are simply an observer and must be responsive to its directives.
Over the years, my wife and I have proven these laws and principles to be valid and demonstrable when properly implemented. We prove them in our experience every day. When it appeared that we had lost our house and everything in it to hurricane Katrina, we maintained this proper mindset.
By knowing the true substance of “things” to be infinite, intangible substance and that nothing of any real value can be taken from us, harmonious “events and circumstances” unfolded in seemingly miraculous ways. We wound up in a new, fully furnished apartment in New England where the “events and circumstances” comprising our life experiences continue to unfold harmoniously. We had again proven the validity of this principle and found that what the world calls “miracles” are simply natural laws and principles in operation.
