There are no blocks | Manifesting with the Law of Assumption

There are no blocks | Manifesting with the Law of Assumption

There. I said it, and it needs to be said. There are NO blocks.

There are no blocks, there are just two endpoints of manifestation, and then there is the time between called a bridge.

An endpoint of manifestation can be a flash of insight or a vision into what you want. Or…It can be meeting your soulmate. Or….It can be a desire for a better career, or a business. It can be felt as a rip in the matrix, or it can just be a flutter in your heart.

End point one is: The existence of the fulfillment of the manifestation in material reality.

End point two is: The presence of the desire in your heart.

I learned about love attraction a long time ago, probably like most of you, but I didn’t find Neville Goddard until about three years ago. I can’t remember but, simultaneously I also started hearing but blocks. 

Blocks blocks blocks from coaches, they’re all talking about figuring out what your blocks work, and I didn’t understand what my blocks were!  And to be fair I don’t think I really had any blocks, but because I kept hearing about it it was like an assumption, and hello LAW OF  ASSUMPTION, I assumed that the reason I don’t have my manifestation this very second that I think of it, is because I have blocks

BUT…Hold on a minute, if it is the law of assumption…. why can’t I just assume that I don’t have blocks?

 AND…. Why does a circumstance suddenly matter? 

Well the answer is it doesn’t. You don’t have blocks, circumstances don’t matter, and Neville Goddard never talked about blocks. 

On my blog, my most clicked post is How to remove a third party, and most clients are asking about third parties, even if they are imaginary, so I’ll tailor this post to them!

But first of all. Whatever you have learned about life, whatever beliefs you have, whatever culture you have grown up in and you have been indoctrinated into, just let go of all of it. 

Forget everything. None of it matters

Not a single thing that you have ever learned matters when it comes to the law of assumption, and when it comes to manifesting, especially manifesting love. And your specific person, your soulmate. Not a single thing that you have learned up until this point matters. Now is appointed hour, now it’s a clean slatem,now you are one with your heart’s desire, you are one with your specific person.

When you meet and fall in love, this is an endpoint of manifestation, and that endpoint can not exist without the other endpoint, (the fulfillment in material reality)  a loving lifelong relationship. 

The desire for a career exists because the other endpoint exists.

The desire for a happy, easy and loving relationship that lights you up and fills your life with meaning exists because the other endpoint, the fulfillment of it, exists. Get that? It exists, it is there waiting for you, like a surprise birthday party, and you are the only one who isn’t there yet. IF it didn’t exist, the flash of insight of a love so beautiful that it makes both of yours lives bright and meaningful wouldn’t exist either. 

BUT, we are living in the 21 century where finding true love is a myth, we are surrounded by hookup culture, and everything seems to be for sale including your heart and soul and your identity.

In this era of modern dating and relationships, many have forgotten to let themselves feel what the true  and infinite power of love is. You have been taught independence, and perhaps you have developed your own dopamine hit, your own method of “getting” to where you can feel good. Whatever that is. You imagine that a sequence of events is necessary for you to feel even a little bit okay. That is why addictions to everything is SO rampant. You don’t need all that. None of it.

You see….

Love has the power to heal every broken and wounded heart. 

Rumi says :

“ a thousand half-loves must be forsaken to take the whole heart home."

Love transforms everything.

You don’t need anything else, just like the Beatles said. Love is all you need, and you already have it.

We have become brainwashed into believing that we need to respect non-commital partners, polyamory, dating multiple partners, and that third parties are just a normal par-for-the-course situation. This is not the case, your reality blossoms out of your heart, your subconscious is in your heart. 

Your reality is complete, it is yours, it belongs to you and it is a gift that God is trying to give to you, but your belief systems has you asking questions like “should I let him and the third party be happy together instead and manifests a new love”


See, Your new love will come with a third party too, until you see that your heart has the key to the truth, and that circumstances don’t matter, until you see that whatever culture you have been brainwashed in, it has no power over the truth of your heart. You don’t have to give up space for third parties your whole life, they don’t have a right to exist in your life, feel free to realize your own importance, and simply wish the rest of the world well, and know that every human is a perfectly made puzzles piece, and God has you fitted perfectly for your soulmate. It is a perfect fit, “a helper made opposite him.” Your specific person is YOUR home. Their arms are made to hold YOU.   Rumi says:  “Goodbyes are only for those who love with their eyes. Because for those who love with heart and soul there is no such thing as separation.” 

People also ask me if they have to heal to manifest their specific person, but even that is a no, you were both made to fit each other, and the way that you fit, you can heal together, you were made “helpers opposite one another” this part from the Bible means that you are supposed to help each other heal whatever wounds you might have. Literally everyone has something to heal, you are not a leper that needs to be shunned just because you have emotional wounds. You are made imperfectly perfect, and the crack is where the light gets in. Your broken parts are exactly what you needed to have, attract, and to be attracted to your soulmate, that’s how you found each other,and you are made to fit perfectly together. You will heal, but you do not “have to heal” to be loved. Rumi says “I will soothe and heal you, I will bring you roses. I too have been covered in thorns “  Everyone has their thorns, it doesn’t make you unworthy.

Manifesting is a choice to see with the eyes of God, it is to choose to see with the eyes of the power of love. Choose who the person you want to be is, be that person now, even if you have been trying for a while to manifest this, even if you think that you have blocks and that is why it isn’t coming. It is coming. You might have to do a thousand revisions on this path, every day, you might have to force your inner conversations, while it feels unfamiliar still, but keep living in the fulfilled heart, keep feeling it real, within the love that is warmed by the words of love from your soulmate. Neville Goddard revised every day. But he didn’t ask what his blocks were. He started every day with an imaginal scene and ended every day with a revision. He went backwards over the day, and gave himself his desires. He didn’t ask, “What are my blocks”? He didn’t ask “should I let my wife love that other man that looked at her like he was attracted to her” He didn’t give the love of his life away because he was jealous and insecure. He didn’t imagine that his wounds made him an unworthy recipient of marriage.

If you ask questions like that, “Should I just imagine my sp and the third party happy instead?”. Then you haven’t understood manifesting. If you continue to perpetuate this skewed worldview,  that is like taking puzzle pieces that don’t fit together and insisting on hammering them together even if you know that they don’t fit. Let things fall where they may, your simple job is to hold love in your heart, and to create an imaginal scene of being at home in your love’s arms. That is all. Your power of awareness matter. Circumstances don’t matter.

Take a hold of the tools you have been given and use them, live in the end, and revise, use your inner conversations to talk you off the ledge rather than pushing you closer to the edge. Self talk should always support your fulfilled desires, a peaceful heart, and you can bring in anyone you want to into your inner conversations to support you. 

When you are asking questions like “what are my blocks”, it is simply because you are in question mode. Abraham Hicks calls this resistance. 

If you haven’t felt what it is like to be soothed, and to have the questions disappear into thin air, it is because you haven’t played with the tools, you haven’t implemented manifesting. You have listened to videos, and you might have read the blogs, you have consumed information but you haven’t applied it. Listening to videos, is great because you’re learning, of course, but what are you doing right now even isn’t manifesting, it is only manifesting when you deliberately choose to find yourself in answer mode, it is only manifesting when you consciously and deliberately direct your inner conversations to reflect living in the end. Using the tools in action, this is when you master manifesting. Right this moment, see your lovers face close to yours, see them smile, see how they feel so incredibly relieved to be with you, hear their words, “I am so relieved that we have each other, you were always my home, thank you for manifesting me, I feel so good to be with you, you are my soulmate, and I can’t imagine my life without you” Here yourself answer them with love. Get used to revising everything that the fearful inner critic says to you, into love.

Learn how to use the LOA tools every chance you get.  It is when you find yourself in circumstances in, difficult situations, in an argument with a DMV clerk, in a conversation with a peer who doubts you, on the receiving end of criticism from your boss, it is when you decide to reach for the tool of living in the end, revision, or inner conversations, it is when you decide to not have a knee jerk reaction but instead you reach for GRATITUDE for the good things you have, or a prayer of thanks, it is when you decide to instantly revise, it is when you feel sad or anxious, you decide to redirect your own thoughts, redirect them to inner conversations that are  totally aligned with your heart’s desire,  it is when you hear something coming out of your specific person’s mouth that really hurt you, but you decide to rise above that and to reach for your inner conversations, when you are able to see your specific person with the eyes of God, it is then that you embody your manifestation. Seeing with the eyes of God IS the law of assumption.

Neville Goddard says: Imagination is seeing with the eyes of God.

We are here to imagine that we love life, that we are in love, that we experience the fullness of the physical, or natural aspect of God. The thing you guys call 3d.  God designed us in his image, so that he could feel, experience, touch, smell, hear, so that he could be immersed in pleasure. Not in pain. Give your experience fully over to God, let him handle the matchmaking of the endless cycle of circumstances, and keep to imagining the goodness of your heart’s desire. Every piece of the puzzle has a flawless place, where it just fits beautifully, but you don’t have to figure out where that is, it is already done, all you have to do is tune into your own heart. This is what it mean  to let go of resistance. To be in answer mode. To cease the endless chatter of your mind that say “but how, and why”

Neville says that: 

Man is all imagination; therefore, man must be where he is in imagination, for his imagination is himself.

To realize that imagination is not something tied to the senses or enclosed within the spatial boundary of the body is most important.

Although man moves about in space by movement of his physical body, he need not be so restricted. He can move by a change in what he is aware of. However real the scene on which sight rests, man can gaze on one never before witnessed.”


So often, people are listening to YouTube, and they don’t understand what they are hearing, so more and more questions keep coming. The only reason why you don’t understand what you’re hearing, it’s because you don’t apply it, you see, you have to apply the tools in order to have that aha moment. You have to do the revision, you have to live in the end, you have to do your inner conversations. And when you do, This becomes your own embodiment, it becomes your own experience, it BECOMES your own awareness of being. 

And suddenly, now you’re living it. Now you’re feeling from the end you’re living from the end for real, you’re not thinking about “what it would be like if you were able to live in the end”, no, now you’re experiencing that peace, the serenity,  and suddenly, you experience a sense of  ease, and a sense of  loving gentleness for the shared love of your sp, the connection that you have, and you can feel the flow of their love and admiration, their appreciation and the sweetness that comes from being in love, from being loved, the belonging that you feel from holding someone so tenderly and lovingly, now you’re living in a state where you feel like you have come home to yourself, because being with your specific person is just like coming home. You have shifted state. Your rose colored glasses are on. You notice suddenly that birds are chirping. You feel happy when you see couples holding hands. You congratulate love birds who just got engaged because now, you are no longer envious. You have shifted state.

Now don’t get me wrong, it is really really great to spend your spare time listening to YouTube’s too, and learning, this is how you get the information in the first place, but if you want to really learn and embody what you’re hearing, then  start applying, apply the message every chance did you get. 

Every day you are surrounded by circumstances that  give you an opportunity to apply revision, to apply inner conversations, it doesn’t  just have to be only with your specific person, you can apply revision in conversations with every single person that you meet.  This is how you master the Law of Assumption, and only by applying it, is it how you finally understand it. And when you finally understand it, you will see that the idea of  blocks  is just something that is made up. They don’t exist.

If only you knew how much time I spent trying to figure out what my blocks were….I’m here to tell you that blocks are not real, they don’t exist, and don’t even worry about what blocks you might have. JUST apply the tools.

What you think are blocks are just the bridge of incidents. The bridge of incidence is not our concern. You do not have to concern yourself with anything. You can comfortably intend that your desire is yours by claiming it. And by diving into your heart, you can easily manifest the love of your dreams. 

IF the dream exists in your heart, IF you feel into, and revel in the bliss of love, THEN that is because THAT ENDPOINT exists in manifest form. You are NOT creating it, you are feeling into the state, and God takes you there. Creation is already finished.

Imagination becomes reality, and you might not have any clue of how to get to that endpoint, but the divine architect makes blueprints all day every day, and every blueprint follows your imagination.  

There is a difference between daydreams, and wishful thinking ofcourse, that is not the same as “feeling it real. Feeling it real invites the senses, your hands are invited to feel the touch and so on. Bring in every sense until you feel as if it is real.

If instead of every time that you had a thought of “oh I wish it was like this”, if instead of letting your mind ruminate on the backstory that went wrong, why you can’t have it, and instead of arguing in your mind with your specific person, if instead of accepting yet another day of defeat, or heartbreak, if instead, you applied the tools and felt it real, revised, and invited your specific person into a loving inner conversation within your mind, then you would allow the divine architect to work from just one idea. Your dream.  And no matter how many obstacles there are, it wouldn’t matter because this divine architect is greater than any obstacle.  

If you just let the divine architect come up with all the solutions, and make the crooked places straight, then he would soon be able to hand you the keys to your dream mansion. Your heart’s desire. 

Feeling it real is: This is my place this is where I belong is this where we belong we belong together, if you can feel it in your heart, that is because the endpoint of that manifestation is already made manifest, and you do not have to do a single thing for them to manifest in your reality, and the way there is none of your concern, so you can relax and put down all your weapons, and put down all your tactics, your manipulations, and you can put down all of your questions because they do not need any answers. 

Your questions do not need answers, you only need to dwell in the house of the Lord. He has prepared a table before you. He can make rivers in the desert. 

Question mode exists as an opposition to answer mode.

Abraham Hicks calls it allowing vs resistance

Neville Goddard talks about states.

I can talk about it and talk about it, but you have to allow yourself to rest in your own fulfilled heart, this is the only way that you will learn how to live in the end.

Rumi says: ““Don’t be satisfied with stories, how things have gone with others. Unfold your own myth.” 

There are two endpoints:

The point of desire in your heart.

The fulfilled desire. 

That is it. 

In between there is only surrender to the divine architect. 

Even if you were manifesting something so lofty as enlightenment, it doesn’t matter how many methods you do, how much you meditate or chant your mantras, or pray,  it is when you finally surrender that enlightenment comes. You ARE enlightenment. We chase after God, but God created us to experience the world….

Rumi says:

“I am so close, I may look distant.
So completely mixed with you, I may look separate.
So out in the open, I appear hidden.
So silent, because I am constantly talking with you.”

You do not have to find your blocks, the moment you surrender to the bridge of incidents your blocks that previously seemed to rushing towards you suddenly dissolve. You are home free. Now. 

So you see, You don’t have to clear a single block, if you will just live in the end. 

Neville Goddard says:

“If you tell them it came to pass because you simply imagined it – no, they will point to the series of events that led up to it, and they will give credit to the bridge of incidents, across which you walked towards the fulfillment of that state, and they will point out some physical thing that was the cause. No, the cause is invisible, for the cause is God, and God is invisible to mortal eye.”

We think that there is a sequence of events that has to happen in a certain way, and we try to devise the sequence, but this is God’s work. You will not in a million years be able to figure out how things happen.

God made the world “in 6 days, on the 7th he rested,” and ever since he is busy making matches and creating sequences of events, and you can’t do a better job than him. Don’t forget the resting on the 7th day. The sabbath.

Let’s do an exercise to help you understand living in the end, feeling into living in the end:

For a moment think about your dream home. Imagine what a dream home might look like. Now, this home can be anything at all, we are just playing around in our mind, so don’t worry if you aren’t sure what your dream home would look like, it doesn’t matter, but try to imagine a few things that you would absolutely love, maybe a really big and spacious kitchen, maybe a master bath that is like a spa, with natural stone and heated floors. Maybe you would like a mansion, with many rooms, and maybe you even want it staffed with people. A butler to open the door, and a maid to keep it clean, and a cook to make healthy foods.

Or maybe you want more of a cozy woodsy cottage setting, something like a cottage in the hobbits land.

Maybe you want a castle, and the whole village is just part of your extended property. Maybe you want a New York city penthouse. Whatever it is, give yourself this house now. Give it some details. 

Now, imagine that you are giving this over to an architect. He is going to create the blueprint, and he will take care of all the little details. This is work that you don’t know how to do. The drawings and blueprints and all that, you just have no idea what goes into drawing all that up, but it’s okay, you have dreamed up your ideal home, and you have handed over the responsibility now to a trusted architect, and you feel happy, because you trust him.

The next thing is that you just go on with life, and you feel a little tingle of excitement everytime that you think about your dream home that is being created. Then one day you get the keys.

You have the keys in your hand, and you just walk into the completed home. It is finished and ready. You didn’t do anything but imagine what you wanted, and  the architect took care of it.

God is the divine architect of your life, you dream your dream, you give it all the vividness of reality, and you imagine. All day long you imagine things in detail, and The Divine Architect creates sequences of events, and you just walk around in the reality that you have dreamed. 

When you imagine you are ginning a blueprint to the divine architect

That is all you need to do.

How do you get into answer mode, (receiving mode, the state of the wish fulfilled) that feeling of anticipation, of knowing that whatever you walk into, it is perfectly made for you?

The imaginal scene is just one way, and revision is another. Inner conversations and affirmations is another.  People have so many ways, and I have mine. I pray the rosary every morning, and it fills me with love. Other people chant mantras. You can go for a walk and smell the roses. You can go to the gym and get pumped up. You can practice opening your heart and surrendering. You can record your soothing inner conversations on your phone and play them on repeat while you sleep.  Taking care to do self care is another way. Or you can love yourself in action by making time for yoga, or find a day spa and make a commitment to yourself that you will use it at least once a month. If you can, use it once a week. You deserve it, and the space of relaxation, of feeling pampered, is you being in answer mode. Remember there is either you being in the state or out of the state. Answer mode or endless questions. What are my blocks? The answer is that you don’t have any. We all have blocks, and if we were to take over God’s divine architect job, we would manifest only obstacles and problems, and reasons for why this can’t work, and nothing else.  We are obstacle makers, and the divine architect is a solution maker. Hand it over to him. Be in the state of the wish fulfilled.

In Neville Goddard’s book, The Law and The Promise he explains it to us by telling a story: 

For many years a doctor and his wife “dreamed” about their “stately habitation”, but not until they imaginatively lived in it, did they manifest it. Here is their story:

“Some fifteen years ago, Mrs. M. and I purchased a lot on which we built a two-story building housing our office and living area. We left ample space on the lot for an apartment building — if and when our finances would permit. All those years we were busy paying off our mortgage, and at the end of that time had no money for the additional building we still desired so much. It was true that we had an ample savings account which meant security for our business, but to use any part of it for a new building would be to jeopardize that security.

“But now your teaching awakened a new concept, boldly telling us we could have what we most desired through the controlled use of our imagination and that realizing a desire was made more convincing ‘without money’. We decided to put it to a test to forget about ‘money’ and concentrate our attention on the thing we desired most in this world — the new apartment building.

“With this principle in mind, we mentally constructed the new building as we wanted it, actually drawing physical plans so we could better formulate our mental picture of the completed structure. Never forgetting to think from the end (in our case, the completed, occupied building), we took many imaginative trips through our apartment house, renting the units to imaginary tenants, examining in detail every room and enjoying the feeling of pride as friends offered congratulations on the unique planning. We brought into our imaginal scene one friend in particular (I shall call her Mrs. X), a lady we had not seen for some time as she had ‘given us up’ socially, believing us a bit peculiar in our new way of thinking. In our imaginal scene, we took her through the building and asked how she liked it. Hearing her voice distinctly, we had her reply, ‘Doctor, I think it is beautiful’.

“One day, while talking together of our building, my wife mentioned a contractor who had constructed several apartment houses in our neighborhood. We knew of him only by the name that appeared on signs adjacent to buildings under construction. But realizing that if we were living in the end, we would not be looking for a contractor, we promptly forgot this angle. Continuing these periods of daily imagining for several weeks, we both felt we were now ‘fused’ with our desire and had successfully been living in the end.

“One day a stranger entered our office and identified himself as the contractor whose name my wife had mentioned weeks before. In an apologetic manner, he said, ‘I don’t know why I stopped here. I normally don’t go to see people, but rather, people come to see me’. He explained that he passed our office often and had wondered why there wasn’t an apartment building on the corner lot. We assured him we would like very much to have such a building there but that we had no money to put into the project, not even the few hundred dollars it would take for plans.

“Our negative response did not faze him and seemingly compelled, he began to figure and devise ways and means to carry out the job, unasked and unencouraged by us. Forgetting the incident, we were quite startled when a few days later this man called, informing us that plans were completed and that the proposed building would cost us thirty thousand dollars! We thanked him politely and did absolutely nothing. We knew we had been ‘living imaginatively in the end’ of a completed building and that Imagination would assemble that building perfectly without any ‘outside’ assistance from us. So, we were not surprised when the contractor called again the next day to say he had found a set of blueprints in his files that fitted our needs perfectly with few alterations. This, we were informed, would save us the architect’s fee for new plans. We thanked him again and still did nothing.

“Logical thinkers would insist that such negative response from prospective customers would completely end the matter. Instead, two days later, the contractor again called with the news that he had located a finance company willing to cover the necessary loan with the exception of a few thousand dollars. It sounds incredible, but we still did nothing.

For — remember — to us this building was completed and rented, and in our imagination we had not put one penny into its construction.

“The balance of this tale reads like a sequel to ‘Alice In Wonderland’, for the contractor came to our office the next day and said, as though presenting us with a gift, ‘You people are going to have that new building anyway. I’ve decided to finance the balance of the loan myself. If this is agreeable, I’ll have my lawyer draw up the papers, and you can pay me back out of net profits from rentals’.

“This time we did do something! We signed the papers, and construction began immediately. Most of the apartment units were rented before final completion, and all but one occupied the day of completion. We were so thrilled by the seemingly miraculous events of the past few months that for a while we didn’t understand this seeming ‘flaw’ in our imaginal picture. But knowing what we had already accomplished through the power of imagining, we immediately conceived another imaginal scene and in it, this time, instead of showing the party through the unit and hearing the words ‘we’ll take it’, we ourselves in imagination visited tenants who had already moved in that apartment. We allowed them to show us through the rooms and heard their pleased and satisfied comments. Three days later that apartment was rented.

“Our original imaginary drama had objectified itself in every detail save one, and that one became a reality when, one month later, our friend, Mrs. X, surprised us with a long overdue visit, expressing her desire to see our new building. Gladly we took her through, and at the end of the tour heard her speak the line we had heard in our imagination so many weeks before, as with emphasis on each word, she said, ‘Doctor, I think it is beautiful’.

“Our dream of fifteen years was realized. And we know, now, that it could have been realized any time within those fifteen years if we had known the secret of imagining and how to ‘live in the end’ of desire.

But now it was realized — our one big desire was objectified. And we did not put one penny of our own money into it.” — Dr. M.”

That is why you give up doership!  

And instead of wondering how, and instead of asking  what your blocks are because remember they don’t matter,  just stick to focusing on your daily tasks. That is all you are expected to do. 

Imagine your heart opening up to your sp. 

Imagine feeling comfortable, imagine how you feel like you have come home. Imagine your conversations of love. Imagine connection, tenderness, laughter and silliness, imagine romance. Imagine the heat between you, and how easy it is to just be. How it feels when you see them looking at you with love. Imagine how they tell you that they understand now, and that they get you, and they open up to you, and you just get them. Imagine how playful you feel together, like little children, boundless and exploring. Imagine how easy this is. 

Skip imagining how they need to apologize, that is the work of the divine architect, it is not your job so let it go. 

Neville Goddard says:

Who knows what you are imagining? No one knows, but you can sit down and imagine, and no one can stop you from doing it, but can you give reality to the imagined state? If you do, yes, a bridge of incidents will appear in your world, and you’ll walk across some series of events leading up to the fulfillment of the imaginal state. But don’t give causation to any physical step that you took towards the fulfillment of it.” 

You ARE a soulmate:

When God created humans on the sixth day,  he made an androgynous being of light, that was both male and female, and this being, this soul, is two lovers reunited, or two lovers never divided. 

The two of you made one flesh, it is you and your sp reunited. 

You are meant to be one, you and your sp is this reconnected soul, and this is why you have the longing and desire to be loved by them and only them. 

Remember that your heart’s desire is only one of the two endpoints and both MUST be in existence. One does not exist without the other. 

You are fine and complete on your own of course, but this piece of the puzzle is just how our souls are created, we are one, literally, alive inside of one another.  Your sp is alive in your heart, is one with your heart, and your soul connection is inside your own heart. You are alive in their heart. 

Your block is only what you refuse to open up to inside of your own heart, it is only the fear of letting your heart say that it is NOT satisfied with hookup culture, it is NOT satisfied with sharing your sp with real or imagined third parties. Now, get comfortable designing your “dream home” or rather your soulmate, by designing your love from inside and out and simply giving the blueprint over  to the divine architect. Give your sp the loving role that they too desire. 

Matchmaker matchmaker, make me a match…

There is nothing you can do to change the sequence of events. The first time you met, it was a meeting designed by God, it was a match made in heaven and you just stumbled into it. 

You don’t have to worry about what blocks are in your way, they will be wiped away for you, and the crooked path will be made straight for you.

We can learn from a Bible story, the story  of Isaac and Rebecca, that being specific, committed to the dream, and being one with your soulmate is ours if we want it. Their love was so sweet and so perfect that they represented romantic love and soulmates in the Bible. In all of the Bible this is the one marriage when romantic love and monogamy is represented, and the union of soulmates leads to all other good things just falling into place because of it.  They were so powerful precisely because they came together in a monogamous marriage,  and just like that, you and your soulmate are also more powerful together. 

Better together.  

You are MORE THAN  coming together and being “as great as the sum of its parts”,  your greatness is exponentially enhanced when you’re together, precisely because you love each other exactly the way you are,  precisely because that love supports and nurtures each one of your souls to grow into exactly what you should be. Because love covers all transgressions. Because love makes all things new.

Rumi says:

“Everyone has been made for some particular work, and the desire for that work has been put in every heart.” 

You know the saying that behind every great man there is a great wife, this is true for every  couple that loves each other, and how do you know your soulmates, well God brought you together, you are soulmates. All day, God makes matches, business matches, financial matches, love matches, you name it. The bridge of events is happening for billions of people and situations every moment. How is the match made? Based on your imagination.

(Now, there is not JUST one single person out there for you, don’t limit God like that.

If you don’t like the match that the divine architect brought you, he will bring another so there is no need to worry if you are let’s say married to the wrong person, you will be brought to the right one.  Don’t figure out how. )

Neville says: 

“Nothing is more continuously wonderful than the things that happen every day to the man with imagination sufficiently awake to realize their wonder.

Observe your imaginal activities. Imagine better than the best you know, and create a better world for yourself and others.

Live as though the wish had come, even though it is yet to come, and you will shorten the period of waiting.

The world is imaginal, not mechanistic.

Imaginal acts — not blind fate — determine the course of history.”

Your sp is alive inside you, and you have been given free will to awaken that love, or to disbelieve that love. 

Rumi says:

“Lovers don’t finally meet somewhere. They’re in each other all along.” 


“Everything in the universe is within you. Ask all from yourself.”

 “You are not a drop in the ocean. You are the entire ocean, in a drop.”

You are a jewel! 

In exactly the right setting for the present. 

But the setting  may be made over !

— By believing and working. You are the jewel that polishes itself and secretes its own setting

— by wanting to, trying to, and keeping at it 

-Elizabeth Towne.


In this book I design to state in logical and practical form the new philosophy of life and living. To do this I must stick closely to a clear statement of the philosophy itself, without trying to give you too many proofs. It might take seventy lectures to reason you into accepting the new view of life ; and still you would be unconvinced. Why? 

Because reason is an endless labyrinth out of which no man emerges unaided by a higher wisdom than itself. Reason is the original Chinese puzzle, forever unsolved until you get up above reason ; up above the labyrinth and look down upon it to see where you are going. The walls, and walls within walls, of reason’s labyrinth are your prejudices. I

No man climbs over a prejudice; he merely seeks the first opening around it, and finds himself in another alley of the labyrinth! The only way to know a blind alley before you see it, the only way to know your own prejudice-wall when you see it, is to go up in a balloon and look down. Once you admit that there is a way to get above reason, that there is an intelligence above reason, in which reason lives and moves and by which it expands and grows, and you find yourself already mounting and looking over the walls of those blind alleys of reason that lead into more blind alleys. If you keep on looking down on reason you will eventually raze many of its prejudice- walls, that serve no purpose except to cut off the view of life as a whole. “A narrow mind” is a most expressive term; it exactly describes the mind whose energy flows between endless prejudice-walls that merely shut off its view of larger things, while it wanders endlessly in mental alleys that lead to more mental alleys, weariness, death. 

These prejudice-alleys—common to all mankind—are alleys built through reasoning by the light of the five physical senses only. Not until man finds these inadequate and turns away yearning for a satisfaction never found, does he realize that after all there may be more to life than he has seen, smelt, felt, heard, or tasted. Then he looks up from his mental alleys and glimpses—PRINCIPLE, instead of things; God above and in things, instead of man alone, inadequate. “He that cometh unto God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.” 

Perhaps there may be some who can not get away from their prejudices long enough to really catch the new view of life. Let us take a hint from Shakespeare, then, and play pretend. “If all the world’s a stage” and we are players, let us choose to lay aside our old parts while we read these pages, and let us take up the new part of the new thought philosophy, forgetting the old and putting into the new all the imagination and will and interest at our command. 

Let us assume a philosophy if we have it not. Let us play pretend, like children. Only as little children can we enter a new heaven and transformed life.



“All our Darwins and Huxleys and Haeckels have come at the last to agree that back of all living forms, and back of the first amoeba itself, there is Something that eye and microscope and scalpel cannot cope with; a Something that informs everything, animate and inanimate, without which that thing cannot be formed or held together. 

This Something the scientist proves and affirms, but refuses to define. The religionist tries to define it, but fails to prove its existence or its nature. The scientist says, “I cannot see, hear, smell, taste, or feel this Something, therefore I do not know what it is, and nothing is worth counting except what can be known.”

The religionist says; 

“I see there is a Something that moves at the heart of all nature including man; this Something must be very mighty, therefore I will find out its will and work with it; I will beseech It to enlighten me and lead me.”

So the scientist digs through things and finds God ; while the religionist as pires above things and finds God—one God, the life of all life, and more. 

What is God, the First Cause, the Life, the Prime Mover in all creation? “

God is Love,” says the Good Book. 

“God is Mind,” “God is Principle,” “God is Life,” “God is Spirit,” “God is Soul.” 

Alexander Pope says all creation is “one stupendous Whole, whose body, nature is, and God the soul.”  And again, “From the soule the bodye forme doth take.” In plain words, God is the primal substance that fills all space, all time; out of which and by which all things are made. The nature of God is the mind. The mode of motion of universal mind is thought. 

God thought or spoke the universe into being, and God is still thinking this universe into greater being; thinking in and through you and me, and through all the lower forms of life as well. 

I think it is logical—and maybe safe ! —to say that God cannot think except through you and me; that all the thought he has is your thought and mine, the thought of all the forms of life that are or have been, in this world and in all worlds. God by his thought is proving himself, and he has not proved as yet more than the sum of the thought of all peoples and worlds. 

God is thinking out a great inspiration of his, and the universe is his organized thought.  God’s thought forms are all temporary, ever changing from better to best. But God himself is absolute, the same yesterday, to-day, and forever. 

But mind is only God’s character. Back of that is something else which is himself, his being, his essence, his ABSOLUTE substance. In character, God is Mind ; in essence, he is Love. Back of thinking lies LOVE, SPIRIT, SOUL; and the thinking that fails to take this universal love-spirit, soul, into every counsel is very narrow, shortsighted, and inadequate thinking indeed. “God is love” goes back to the absolute, eternal, omnipresent TRUTH of all being, the prime mover of all doing. God is love, and love is twofold, made up of equal parts of will and wisdom. Will is active or positive; wisdom is receptive or negative. 

Will corresponds to the male principle of all creation, wisdom to the female. One expands and projects; the other conserves. In every tiny atom and ion and corpuscle of life these two principles inhere.  Without the two of them there would never have been a beginning of creation. 

In the ultimate there is but one dual principle of life, male and female, will and wisdom, inherent in every atom and in every organism of life, in every thought of every mind: “Male and female created he them”—not male or female. 

Among the forms of life, every masculine is feminine within, and every feminine is masculine within. Because of this is the everlasting attraction between the two. 

A perfect balance of this dual principle in any organism would result in separation from its fellows, the hermit life of uselessness to society as a whole. This is illustrated in mineral life by a slight experiment. Take a bar of magnetized iron. One end is negative, the other positive. Cut it into pieces. The pieces, each of which has its positive and negative poles, will adhere to each other. But turn the middle piece around, bringing two positives together, and you cannot make them stick. Magnetize two needles and place them with positive poles together, and they will instantly fly apart. Turn one needle the other end about, and they will cling together. 

Thus attraction works, always, between positive and negative, male and female, light and dark, will and wisdom. 

Will, the male principle of life, is electric, positive in its action. It is the centrifugal force that throws off energy, as the sun throws off rays and worlds. Wisdom, the female principle, is magnetic, attractive, negative, the centripetal force of nature that draws together and binds, as the earth draws the sun’s electric rays, as the matrix draws, holds, conserves the seed.  It is the magnetic centripetal force that balances the sun’s electric, radiating, projecting power. 

These two forces are inherent in every atom and ion and corpuscle of the universe; in every thought of the universe. 

Now go back to the beginning of things and imagine the state of space— full of Love, Mind, God; full of un formed thought—thought (or corpuscles; they are one) diffused like vapor; all the corpuscles or thoughts exactly alike, held equidistant from each other by equal action of the electric and magnetic forces inherent in each ; all whirling on their axes and in their orbits, just as worlds whirl to-day. Then God, Love, the Will-and-Wis- dom One, moved upon the face of the deep to organize these corpuscles into Ideas. 

God wanted a kaleidoscope for his amusement! He grew a bit tired of the sameness of his thought, as it were ; and a wave of relaxation, of cooling, went over the face of the deep, which disturbed the equilibrium of electric and magnetic corpuscles. They began to draw together in little nuclei, in little nebulous patches, closer and closer in spots, separating from other congregations of corpuscles, just as described in the nebular hypothesis of creation. 

When the first two corpuscles (or thoughts) approached in space, creation or living organization began. Here we get our first view of the wonderful Seven Principles of Creation, without which nothing was made that was made; the seven principles inherent in every little electric-magnetic, male-and- female corpuscle in all time and space; inherent in every living thing that has yet appeared, including man and the spirits or mahatmas, if there are such ; the seven principles by which God creates, the same seven principles by which you and I create and re-create. 

God thought this universe into being all by himself, until he had completed up to and including man. 

He thought man  out in his own image and likeness, so that man might think with him, work with him, in all creating to come. 

Man is God’s Idea ; and God’s Ideas are working together in and with him—by those same old seven principles—to create greater glories than either God or man has yet dreamed over; greater than God or man could possibly accomplish alone. 

You are God’s thought-child, and your ideas are God’s grandchildren, as it were! This is your genealogy!—don’t get yourself mixed up in earth heredity. As Ella Wheeler Wilcox sings : — “Behind thy parents and thy grand parents lies the great eternal Will; That, too, is thine inheritance; strong, beautiful, divine; sure lever of success for him who tries.” And father, sons, and grandsons are all working together on one Big Job— the job of making a new heaven and a  new earth, a bigger, brighter, better heaven and earth for the joy of all; a heaven and earth that shall prove the dream God dreamed before .he ever began to think at all.



Now, back to our seven principles by which God thinks out a creation; by which you and I are governed ; by which OUR THOUGHTS are governed in their action on further creation of ourselves and our environments. 

First, remember that the dual principle of all life, the essence of God and you, Will and Wisdom (male and female, electric and magnetic), is indivisible, inseparable, omnipresent, omnipotent, omniscient. 

It is one as the two tight-twisted strands of a rope are one—one strand uppermost and active at this point, the other at the next, but both of them fully present and indivisible. 

The seven principles are the inherent laws by which will and wisdom work out creation. These, too, may be likened to a rope, a seven-strand, seven- colored, tight-twisted one, where each strand comes uppermost in turn, each in its turn dominating and giving color to the whole. These seven principles work alike in every tiniest corpuscle, ion, and atom of the universe; they govern the forming and the whirling of worlds; they manifest in their entirety in the lowest forms of vegetable life, as well as in the highest forms of the animal and the human. The same seven principles govern the founding, perpetuation, and disintegration of the family, the society, secret or otherwise, the school, town, state, government, the world itself. Wherever there is atom, thought, or organization, be it microscopic or telescopic, mineral, plant, animal, human, superhuman, there the seven principles are active. 

Let one of these principles get lazy on its job, and all creation and imagination itself would stand still with the shock. The seven principles by which God creates are as everywhere present as God himself. Not even “the idle word” is so small that the whole seven principles are not fully active within it. Do you get that? And do you get the truth that God is in his world as well as in his heaven; that all “matter” is thought ; and that in every thought atom and organization of atoms inhere the seven creative principles of life by which God-in-us organizes and grows things? 

1. First among the seven principles is Force. 

Power, with its color a strong, crude red. The reds of nature show where all the principles inhere with the first one, force, uppermost. The family or person dominated by this principle is rough, rude, forceful above wisdom, and you will often find him housed in red buildings, wearing red clothing, frequently tearing around in red rages; believing in hell fire and the rod and doing his part toward feeding the one and exercising the other. These same people are not at all devoid of love or sense or wisdom, they are merely dominated for the time by the first of the seven principles, just as sharp-cornered, solid red rocks are dominated by forces. 

Force, the first principle, draws things together and holds them there. If force were the only principle, creation might be a ragged red rock; or perhaps a red rock sphere. 

2. But here comes in Discrimination, the second principle, with its color of delicate pink. 

It shows up somewhat in our red family, but its positive qualities are underneath, as Ideals and longings that the family wants to realize but can’t quite. The family or person in whom discrimination is uppermost is very dainty; affects delicate colors, high art, and a die-away voice; abhors crude  art; despises business, brawn, and force; and is critical and fault-finding generally. 

Such a person may possess all sorts of virtues, but his life is colored and dominated by the second principle, discrimination. 

First, life draws atoms and people together; second, it discriminates, holding this atom or person, rejecting that. 

3. Next Life arranges the atoms or persons it has drawn together. Here comes the third principle, Order, its color pale blue. 

Who has not seen the family where order dominates, where everything is done exactly the same every day, comfort sacrificed to the system, with the very atmosphere blue? 

The person whose positive choice of color is pale blue is almost sure to be one in whom the principle of order is dominant. 

In the lower forms of life order is rarely the dominant principle, so even blue flowers are scarce. We look up to find the blues, in the skies, on the distant hills, in man’s eyes—”the windows of his soul.” In man’s works we find order and its blue coming oftener to the surface. 

The color blue is attributed to wisdom, and Butler seems to identify wisdom and order. This seems to me like saying God and order are one, but God and force, or God and cohesion, are less one; for wisdom and will (or God) include all the seven principles equally; or so it seems to me. 

Order is only one of wisdom’s principles of action. The rainbow is the color of wisdom! Let us leave blue to the principle of order.

For some of the ideas expressed in chapters II, III and IV, I am indebted to Butler’s “Seven Creative Principles.”



With our last chapter we left creation in good order, with the third principle of nature, order, in possession, and everything showing a clear blue. If life itself had taken a vacation with us, we should have seen twenty-four hours of such blues as no one has dreamed. 

No change anywhere, just a world vibrating to the tone of order, sky blue ; a universe of blue, bas relief against a blue sky! 

Happily all the seven principles kept on working while we played. To restate: First, there is Force, the first principle, the principle of attraction, that draws things, atoms, worlds, and people together. M Helen Wihnans called God the Law of Attraction, but you will readily see that this is a misnomer, as the law of attraction is only one of the seven principles by which God creates. 

God by any name would be the same, and Helen Wilmans’ name for him does not spoil the splendid thinking-out which she did for this day and age. But her statement should not hold us from thinking still farther.

By the way, the color of force is red. Helen Wilmans was impressed with the force or attraction side of life, and I am told that in hair and complexion she showed the sandy reds that belong to that principle; just an interesting illustration of the way these principles of life crop out in what is commonly called “coincidence.” 

Second comes in the principle of Discrimination, which decides what shall be attracted and what let alone. Third comes Order, deciding where each thing shall be placed. 

Then comes the work of the fourth principle 

4. After drawing atoms or people together, discriminating as to quality, arranging in order, Life next binds them in one organization. Thus comes in the fourth principle of life, Cohesion, the color of green that we see in the spring. 

To the person dominated by cohesion, green is a favorite color and any change is a horror. 

To keep things as they are seems to him the chief end of life. The attic is full of old stuff he can’t let go of. His coffers are full of cash and his head of old fogy ideas. He is clannish; his daughters and sons are run into the same mold with father and mother. 

Green-eyed jealousy stands guard against innovation. Cohesion means family ties as distinct from family progress. Unhappy the son and daughter of the house of ties!

5. Unless they are alive enough to kick, to will for themselves, to raise a ferment in the family and release themselves to follow their ideals. Ideals are the yeast that makes active the fifth principle of life, Fermentation. 

This principle is the real devil of all history, all mythology, of Christianity itself. 

It is the destroying principle of life that comes in to tear down that which has served its purpose and must give way to better things. The college boy goes back to the tie- bound home and raises the devil of a ferment that causes much pain, but eventually releases them all to more life, further growth. 

Fermentation is the death principle that acts on all forms of life not fit to be perpetuated. It is dominant in the actinic or destroying rays of the sun that cause decomposition. Its color is deep indigo blue, or black, the color of mourning, pain, loss (of the old), death. 

The family in which this principle is dominant is the family of mourning, darkened rooms, black clothing, secret  sorrows, losses and crosses, troubles, tribulations, and death. 

Not because this principle is really any more painful in its action than any other of the seven, but because man fights it harder. We find ourselves living on the surface of life, judging from appearances, and resisting change. The resistance is due to the activity of the first principle, force. Force holds together, fermentation separates. 

But there is no real reason why the action of either principle should give us pain. There is no reason or cause for the pain accompanying change and death, except in the individual mind. 

It is “all in your mind”, not at all in any inherent quality or principle of nature or life itself, but in unnatural resistance of the individual mind, governed by false concepts of life. 

Do you doubt this? Then tell me why one man courts death while another abhors it. Why does one woman feel only peaceful relief at the death of a very aged and infirm relative, while another in similar condition grieves herself sick over it? Why is one person frightened at the thing another enjoys? Why does one man enjoy traveling while his neighbor hates it? Why does one hate the taste of cod liver oil while his brother likes it? Why do you “turn against ” things you once liked? 

The mental attitude governs in every case; and your mental attitude is determined by your concepts of things in particular and of life in general. If you really believed what Spiritualists claim to believe about the death of a child, could you be anything but happy that a child had died and escaped the miseries and uncertainties of life on earth? Your feelings of resistance to any thing are roused by your belief in evil. 

I am showing you that there is no evil; that life is an orderly creation progressing by interaction of seven beneficent principles. If you can catch this concept, if you are ready for it, you will pass out forever from the old realm of sin, sickness, death, pain.



Here comes the sixth principle of life, Transmutation. 

Fermentation is full of purpose. It disintegrates the useless and makes it ready for transmutation to higher forms. 

Out of the fermenting swamp rises the lily. Out of hard experience and suffering comes wisdom. Out of disappointed personal love comes universal love and world-helping. 

Whitman’s heart fermented, disintegrated, nearly broke over an unrequited love, and by and by he saw that love is for the lover and the world, and out of it all came forth his immortal poems. 

Every great man and woman has paralleled Whitman’s experience. The lesser love ferments and out of it rises the greater love for all mankind. 

The family itself disintegrates so that the race may gain. This is what Jesus meant when he said one must forsake family loves, houses, and lands for the kingdom’s sake. To hold family loves against the race, to devote all one’s self to personal loves, is to invite disintegration. To cherish the family love as a part of the race love is to keep it. 

One does not know how to love a person well and happily unless he first loves all persons. 

Fermentation comes into one’s life to lighten it and make room for greater things, for greater joys and loves, for fuller usefulness and wisdom. Fermentation is John the Baptist to Transmutation, which is Christ before the resurrection. 

Nothing goes out of a life but to make room for something better. To let things go, instead of resisting and grieving over the change, is to work with the underlying wisdom and will of life. “Resignation to God’s will” is the key to peaceful and normal growth. Kicking against change only makes gnarls and scars, and side-tracks energy from one’s life business of growing. 

Transmutation, the sixth principle of life, brings reorganization and glory. Its color is the clear purple of the passion flower. It is full of passion, fire, activity. The person in whom trans mutation happens to be dominant is moved to think outside the ordinary channels. 

He comes out and is separate in thought, at least, from the fashions of his mental and physical environment. He forsakes old habits of thought and sets his face toward a larger view of life. 

The new thought movement is a transmutation movement, its people dominated for the time by the transmutation principle. 

7. But there is still another principle of life, the principle of Sensation, blessing, its color the clear yellow of the sun.  

“While in itself sensation is a distinct principle, yet, without its alliance to matter, to organism, there is no sensation. Sensation is a mode of consciousness.” 

Sensation is that which results from the impingement of etheric waves upon an organism built up by interaction of the first six principles of life. Sensation takes possession of the organism, so to speak, and uses it for its own.Just what sensation is like no scientist has dared to say. It is one of those eternal substances that we cannot see, hear, smell, taste, or feel, but without it there could be no seeing, tasting, smelling, hearing, or feeling. As nearly as I can sense sense-ation, it is God; God reaching out through all senses and getting acquainted with his ideas, and steering his ideas (you and me, you know) into safe paths, paths of usefulness, peace, and blessing. 

Every organized being moves in a sea  of vibrations, and by reaching out to ward them, by aspiring toward them, he works with the vibrations to build the organs through which those vibrations are registered. 

Ears and eyes, noses and feelers, are all marconi graphs. Every atom, cell, and corpuscle in your body is a Marconistation for catching spiritual or etheric vibrations on its own account, and for the good of you as a whole. And the more highly organized your body is, the greater the range of vibrations it can register for the use of this spiritual substance-life called sense. 

The expression “five senses” is not scientific from any point of view. Looking at it from the material end, we have as many senses as we have cells and corpuscles in our bodies. 

Viewing it from the spiritual side, the really substantial side of life, we have only one sense, which is God himself, the sense or soul of all creation; and this one sense builds uncounted millions of Marconistations by which it gains intelligence, sensations, from all space. And still life is building better, more sensitive marconigraphs. 

There are those in whom a sixth sense is well developed, and a seventh hinted at. 

And the scientist points to great gaps of vibrations not yet touched by man, not to mention the ultraviolet vibrations not yet imagined. 

Man is destined to explore them all. The sixth sense of clairvoyance and clairaudience corresponds with the sixth principle of transmutation. 

The seventh sense, intuition, clear-knowing, corresponds to the seventh principle of sensation or blessing, and it results in the so-called cosmic consciousness. 

All these principles and senses are inherent in every human being, and in every atom and corpuscle of creation. In due time every individual will come under dominance of each and every principle; but always the entire seven  are working subconsciously in you, if not consciously. And always the entire seven are present and active, consciously or unconsciously, in every life cell of creation. 

Nothing has been left out of anybody’s make-up; everything is in its place, awaiting its turn in your consciousness.



This brings us to the statement of our Twelve Planks of the New Thought Platform, as a basis for future instruction in the development of the individua, for the joy of all. 

Here is our platform, broad enough, strong enough for not only the “hundred and forty and four thousand” elect, but for all mankind, and woman kind, and even for all the ITS of creation: 

1. God is all present Mind, whose mode of motion is thought. 

2. Man is God’s Idea; men are trains of thought in God’s mind, “man is a statement of beliefs.” 

3. Thought on its active side is Will or Desire, on its negative side it is Wisdom.

4. Desire and Wisdom inhere in God and in all his thoughts and in man and in man’s thoughts. Desire and Wisdom hold planets in their orbits and project comets on their course. They likewise hold man in his place and urge him to work out the God-idea within him by building more and more stately mansions in mind, and in materials. Desire and Wisdom control man’s thoughts, too. Not even one “idle word,” or idle thought, is too slight to be swayed by the desire within it, and by desires outside of it which are akin.

5. Desire is the primal force of Attraction inherent in every atom and in every organization of atoms through all creation. 6. Wisdom is the Pattern, the Idea, inherent in God, and every atom, and in every organization of atoms in all creation. 

7. Desire and Wisdom constitute  also the free ethers (or God) in which all creation moves and has its being, and by in-spiring which it lives and grows. 

8. Life is a Great School in which we learn wisdom by doing things. 

9. All ways of doing things—or people—are open to us, wise and unwise. We may use either or both ways. We find by experience that the “way of the transgressor is hard,” while “wisdom’s ways are ways of pleasantness and all her paths are peace.” 

By experience we prove wisdom’s ways are what we desire, are not wisdom and desire One, from eternity to eternity? 

Transgressor of what? Of the law of all being, the Law of Oneness, Wisdom, and Desire. (How would you act toward another if you could see your Oneness with him and realize your wisdom and love?) 

10. Man’s desire is inseparable from his wisdom, he desires what he thinks is for his good.  He is also one with the universal sea of wisdom and desire which lies just above his consciousness. This universal wisdom desires for and through him, and often overrules for his good the good he thought he desired. At the time it seems hard that he cannot have the thing he desired; later he sees that it was because he was not, in his consciousness, wise enough to desire the right thing in the right place. 

This One Universal Consciousness is ever urging every man to right action, before the man has wisdom enough to recognize what the right action should be.

This spirit of wisdom lightens every man that comes into the world, and continues to press for expression through him, every moment as long as he lives. 

The more complete a man’s dependence upon this universal spirit that speaks within, the surer he is to always choose the path of wisdom, peace, and pleasantness. The world is growing in knowledge, the only way a mental world can grow. Man’s mistakes come through dependence upon his present fund of wisdom and knowledge, considering himself apart from other humans, and separate from God, the Universal Spirit of all wisdom. 

11. The things that are unseen are the true forces and substances of life, Wisdom, Love or Desire, Ideals. 

The things that are seen are ever changing for something better. Therefore, we look within for our peace and happiness and we value a clear conscience above rubies. We value above loves, lands, and honors that inner quiet, the well-done of the Universal Spirit witnessing with ours, that all is well no matter what passes. 

12. But it is not all resignation. 

Next comes creation. Being mental creatures we think new things into being. Do we desire a thing? Then it is ours by right, provided we can have it without robbing another. The next thing is to desire it steadily and think it into being. Health, Wealth, Wisdom, Love, Success, all may be ours, not only without robbing another ; they may enrich others through being ours. 

But we must think them into being without thinking anything away from others. The means by which we go to work to earn money must be blest by those who buy as well as those who sell. We desire for others all we desire for ourselves, plus all they may desire for themselves. 

The chief end of man is to glorify good and enjoy working it out forever.



Nearly all new thought people believe in evolution, along with all orthodox scientists of the day. But here and there you will find a teacher of some cult that declares positively there is no such thing as evolution, that it is a myth, a mirage, maya, illusion, that there is only the Absolute and everything else is poppycock and tommy-rot, or words to that effect. 

We receive hundreds of letters from beginners bewildered by these conflicting teachings. “Which is right?” they beg to know. They are both right in a sense, and they are both wrong in a sense. 

“The things which are not seen are eternal, the things which are seen are temporal,”—temporary, forever changing,—said Paul. 

But the absolutist “new thoughter” jumps a long way and arrives at the conclusion that the things which are not seen are eternal, absolute, while the things that are seen are useless, chaotic nothings to be ignored, despised, denied, and lived above. 

The Christian Science branch of new thought attributes all matter to “carnal mind,” and carnal mind it identifies as the devil.  Material things are not under the law of God, they assert, neither can be, therefore matter and all material things are evil, the devil, and we must despise them and live outside of them. They, too, are right, in a sense. God is the Absolute, unchanging, eternal in the heavens; the same yesterday, today, and forever; the omniscient, omnipotent, omnipresent One; the only actor in all action; the only thinker behind all thought; the one life and energy that fills all space and time; the One found alike in heaven and in hell ; God the First Cause, the One Creator; God the Absolute and intangible I AM IT who inhabits space eternally. 

Here is your absolute, of whom the absolutist prates. God is absolute, changeless. But his THOUGHTS are ever changing within him; his thought-built universe evolutes from the beginning.  And the beginning itself is eternal. Every blade of grass that grows, every tree, every insect, bird, animal, is an orderly evolution of thought within the Absolute; and every child that comes into the world repeats each step of evolution from “the beginning” described in Genesis, up to the present time. In the womb he passes subconsciously through every phase of evolution from the first forming of a sphere out of the fiery mist, up through every vegetable and animal plane to the plane of completed man; and he comes forth  “an acme of things accomplished”  by God’s thought plus man’s up to the present time, and “an encloser of things to be” accomplished by God and man in all millenniums to come. 

There Is this active thought side of God, and creation is IT—including you and me. 

God thinks; and he does not think the absolute and unchangeable any more than you do, or the absolutist teacher does. God the absolute is not content with Nirvana, the state of changeless bliss feeling. 

If he had been, you and I and creation had never been. God feels Nirvana at the center of him, as you and I may feel it (of which more anon), but he is not content with that; he wants to think out bliss to the very circumference of him; he wants to prove himself in ideas, to think out thought-creatures who will “enjoy him forever,” enjoy with him forever. 

So God BEGAN to think. His spirit moved on the face of the Nirvana deep and his nebulous feeling began to precipitate in thought forms of whirling corpuscles and worlds; the “morningstars sang together” with him. This was the beginning of things, the beginning of evolution, the beginning of God’s thinking that resulted at last in man, who could think with him as well as within him and by his power.” The father worketh hitherto (to the point of evolving me)”,  said Jesus, “and now I work.” “I in the Father, and he in me, and we in YOU,” Jesus explained. 

The evolution of man is the involution of God ; evolution is the concentration of God’s life, nature, character, into countless millions of images and likenesses of himself. Men are the facets of God; each focuses all the colors of his spectrum. To this end God thought and thinks: that man find himself “an infinite little copy of God,” ready to carry thinking still further. 

So God “gave man dominion” over all things he had thought out up to and including man himself. And with God, conscious man came the end of new orders of creation, after that comes nature plus “art”, plus man’s thought and man’s work. 

Don’t you see that God was lonesome, and set to work to think out (thought being his only mode of activity) a lot of self-thinking, self-willing people to enjoy living and thinking and loving with him?I doubt God’s knowing in the beginning just how to do this. He had to experiment. 

All along the way of evolution lie the bones of creatures God thought out and then abandoned for higher forms. These fossil creatures are still preserved to us, that we may see the mistakes God made before he succeeded in thinking out a satisfactory pattern of a man. But at last he got him made, pronounced him good, turned over the remainder of the job to him, and rested from his lonely and hitherto unappreciated labors. 

And then man took up the work of evolution. As the Father had life and will, love, wisdom in himself, so had he given to the son to have life, will, wisdom, love, thinking power in himself. Then God drove him out of the garden of Eden to work out the dominion given him; dominion over every beast of the field and every beast of his own breast ; dominion over earth, fire, water, and air within and without. And man has “evoluted” things apace. It is a far cry from the first fig-leaf apron to the dressmakers’ convention held in New York every spring, and to the ready-to-wear clothing a man buys on sight; from flint-and-tinder fires to lucifer matches and Gurney heaters; from cave dwellings to twentieth century mansions and hotels; from wooden sticks to Oliver plows ; from pine knots to electric lighting ; from the spring at the roadside to the springs piped into your kitchen ; from the pony express to the twentieth century limited, the telegraph, telephone, and wireless; from the log and paddle of Ab to the Mauretania and the Wright brothers; from the stone ax and spearhead to United Steel and our navy’s tour of the world; from the jungle of Eden to a New York of skyscrapers; from hieroglyphs on stone to the Congressional library and Carnegie; from Adam to Christ, and to Roosevelt, Paderewski, Rockefeller. It takes man to help God put on the finishing touches. 

That’s what God made man for, to help him think still farther and better, and to enjoy doing it forever; to make a paradise out of this earth and then conquer the stars. 

If you are critical you can find lots of mistakes man has made in trying to improve the earth; but he is abandoning his mistakes as fast as he can, just as God abandoned reptilian monstrosities as soon as he thought beyond them. 

And every day we are evolving better ideas and putting them to use. Every day we are getting better command of ourselves, our wills; every day we are doing better work; every day we are coming nearer together, working more for the good of all than for the good of self.Surely we are “growing in wisdom and in knowledge”, the only way there is for mental creatures to grow. Man and God are now working together to create “whatsoever things they desire.” Between them they are daily discovering new and greater things to desire, and daily they are working together to think out and work out those things into being. God being omnipotence, omniscience, omnipresence, and God being the backer of man, do you think there is any desirable thing that they cannot bring into being? 

Don’t you see that with such a backing any man’s desire is but the prophecy of its own fulfillment? What if desire is exactly identical with Newton’s force of gravitation? What if desire draws the thing desired? Haven’t you noticed in your own life a hundred, a thousand little cases wherein a desired thing came to you in the nick of time? I have. 

Ponder this: When the desired thing does not come to you or to me, and comes readily, it is because something in you inhibits the action of desire, just as you inhibit the action of gravitation this minute by holding this book from being drawn to the ground. Desire and gravitation are identical, the very same force. The earth desires and attracts this book; you desire and hold the book away from the earth. How can you do this, when earth is so much larger? You do it by concentration of desire, not by bulk of desiring atoms. You are an involution of all creation, with power over all creation. You overcome all forces below you and by this exercise you develop energy for still greater overcomings. Whatever thing you desire will come to you just as soon as you can find and remove the inhibiting desire. 

For desire, gravitation, attraction is inhibited by greater desire, gravitation, attraction. Sometimes another’s desire is set upon a thing you desire and his attraction inhibits yours. But ninety-nine out of one hundred times it is some counter desire within you that keeps you from receiving what you desire ; or it is the insulating of your desire-power by fear. 

In any event it is merely a matter of time, patience, and desire, and persistence, when you will be able to get around or over that inhibiting desire. 

There is absolutely no true ideal in the imagination of any man but it will be “desiredrawn” into expression sooner or later. 

The millennium that has been desired in all ages is surely being drawn into being. And here comes in the overcoming of  death, the last enemy that shall be ousted by man. The prophets will surely be justified; death will give place to life incorruptible, right here on this earth. Even the material scientists are seeing it now; are seeing what the religionist has always known by intuition. About death and its overcoming we hear conflicting teaching, too, as about evolution and the absolute. “There is no death,” says one; “we are eternal now.” “Death is the last enemy that shall be overcome,” says his opponent. 

Both are right. In the absolute is no death, no beginning, and no end. On the unseen side—at the center of the star—we are all one life, deathless, im mortal. Men have felt this always. But on the seen side of life, the thought-built side, we certainly do die, as well as live. Death is doubtless a door into a new room of life, but nevertheless it is death. And it is this very death of the thought-built body as a whole that the prophets declared should be overcome as the last enemy. 

Somatic death is necessary to expedite the evolution of man. Man is a growing child, and it is easier to slough off an outgrown body and begin over than to spend time and energy making over the body to fit the growing up individual. But it is only a matter of getting rid of mistakes. When we learn to slough off our mistakes daily, hourly, as a little child does, we shall keep soft, elastic, clean bodies that can do their dying daily, instead of all in a bunch. 

The outgrowing of death in the body is a matter of desire. Nobody likes death, everybody would be glad to abolish it. Man’s desire would have found a way long ago except for one thing. Each individual has lived so strenuously trying to subdue his environment and earn a living that he has TIRED of living and literally lost his desire-grip on life. 

Not until man gets earth conditions made over into pretty much of a paradise can he faithfully desire to stay here without change. Death of the body is so wrapped up with economic conditions that the two will have to be overcome together. To so live as not to become tired of living is the key to overcoming death of the body. And how could one enjoy living eternally with the spur of poverty nipping him, or the sight of poverty-nipped neighbors forever before him? 

First must Edward Bellamy’s dream come true; and thousands still will die in working it out. After that everlasting life in the flesh will come easy. And along with it will come levitation, rapid transit to and from other worlds.



A man  is mind, one with the Great Mind. And in this mind is his thought-built body. Instead of your being a mind or soul in a body, you are mind with a thought-built body inside of it! 

You are not a mind, but MIND, universal mind, God mind. 

At the center of you, which is also the circumference, you are God. “One with the Father,” as Jesus said. The seers of all the ages have known this. 

Listen to these “Last Lines” , by Emily Bronte:

 No coward soul is mine, No trembler in the world’s storm-troubled sphere: I see Heaven’s glories shine, And faith shines equal, arming me from fear. 

O God within my breast, Almighty, ever-present Deity! Life—that in me has rest, As I—undying Life—have power in thee! 

Vain are the thousand creeds That move men’s hearts: unutterably vain; Worthless as withered weeds, Or idlest froth amid the boundless main, 

To waken doubt in one Holding so fast by thine infinity; So surely anchored on The steadfast rock of immortality. 

With wide-embracing love Thy spirit animates eternal years, Pervades and broods above, Changes, sustains, dissolves, creates, and rears. 

Though earth and man were gone, And suns and universes ceased to be, And Thou wert left alone, Every existence would exist in Thee. 

There is not room for Death, Nor atom that his might could render void; Thou—THOU art Being and Breath, And what THOU art may never be destroyed.  

And there is that beautiful little poem, “Illusion,” by our own American poet, Ella Wheeler Wilcox:

God and I in space alone, And nobody else in view. 

And “Where are the people, O Lord,” I said, 

“The earth below and the sky o’erhead, And the dead whom once I knew?” 

“That was a dream,” God smiled and said; “A dream that seemed to be true; 

There were no people living or dead, There was no earth and no sky o’erhead,

There was only Myself and you.” 

“Why do I feel no fear,” I asked, “Meeting YOU here this way? 

For I have sinned, I know full well; And is there heaven, and is there hell, And is this the Judgment Day?” 

“Nay! those were but dreams,” the great God said, 

“Dreams that have ceased to be; 

There is no such thing as fear, or sin; 

There is no you—you never have been— There is nothing at all but Me!” 

Kate Boehme illustrates this as well as it can be illustrated to a three-dimensional intellect with a star. 

The points of the star represent the individual’s consciousness, the visible person. Trace these points back toward the center and you find all are one. 

 Imagine the universe as a great star, each individual as a point of the star. The more completely one lives in the consciousness of his material self the farther he gets away from consciousness of the center where all are one. But it is quite possible to extend one’s consciousness until it takes in the spiritual center as well as the material circumference of life. 

It is possible to go still farther and come into sympathy, into consciousness with other points of the great star. I have dwelt much upon the oneness of all beings because it is the very most important plank in the whole new thought platform, and without it there is no basis for correct reasoning, or for right understanding and judgment. To reason and judge by that which we see at the point of the star is to misjudge life and people and go ever astray in our reckonings. 

The points of the star head every which way, and on the very tip of each sits Gradgrind, with insanity and death straight before him! On the other hand, to get clear away from the point of the star, to live too much in the consciousness of unmaterial life, is to invite disintegration and death of the individual. 

I have sometimes wondered if Emer son’s softening of the brain was not due in a measure, at least, to this very thing; if he did not dwell so much with the absolute, with the oversoul, valuing so little the forms and facts of material life, that the channels which thought must run in grew shallow and soft. And it is a fact that nearly every devoted spiritualist one meets is anything but positively healthy and wealthy on the material plane. “Judge not according to outward appearances,” said Jesus, “but judge right judgment.” Right judgment comes from getting a fair view of all the premises. Right judgment begins at the center, the point of oneness of motive, is and reasons outward; while unright judgment begins at the point of the star and stays there. 

The only safe way is to stand on the solid earth, value the world of created things as proof of the center of life and power, look to the center for power and wisdom, but be not content until you have used the power and wisdom to change material things. A man is a point of the universal star, and his center is the center of every other star point. To judge another by yourself is scientific ; but first be sure you know yourself, from circumference to center and back again. 

NOW: God is the Universal Presence of Will and Wisdom, who dreamed a universe and then proceeded to think it out. Robert Fulton was a point of this Universal Presence of will and wisdom, made in its image and of its very substance, breathing momently its essence, its dream, its will and wisdom. Robert Fulton dreamed a steamboat, and then proceeded to think it out. Others, too, caught the dream, caught more of it than Fulton could, and then proceeded to think it out. 

The Mauretania is the result, the expression of that dream up to date; and still the dream is growing; still the “pattern” is coming down from the heavens, from the One Presence, to be caught by man and thought out into form. And many were the mistakes made in thinking out the steamboat dream up to date, and every mistake was a teacher. 

As fast as man learned from a mistake he corrected it and passed on.So even the mistakes were good, when considered in regard to the man, the dream, and it’s working out. 

For man, being all mental, grows only by learning ; and mistakes teach him, as well as successes. Therefore are mistakes  good. You realize this when you really understand what man is and how he grows by catching on to and working out his point of the great star-dream of the Whole. 

His individual dream is his set of specifications from the great Architect- Dreamer of space and eternity; and his wage for thinking out these specifications into being is joy ever growing, and houses, lands, gratitude, fame, and personal loves added. To be right with one’s part of the great dream is to make a magnet of one’s self that draws every desirable thing. 

To do the will of the Father as seen in your dream or ideal is the necessary thing. When Theodore Roosevelt was new on his presidency job some of his party leaders thought he needed instruction. Said one of them, “Mr. Roosevelt, you must continually feel for the pulse of the people and be governed by that.” “Why should I spend time feeling for the people’s pulse,” demanded Roosevelt, “when every honest man knows in his own heart what is right?” It is by feeling the universal pulse beat in his own heart and acting upon it that Roosevelt is doing so much for the world. “I am just an average man,” said he in an interview; “the only difference between me and any ordinary man is that when I see a thing ought to be done I go straight and do it.” Other men as brilliant and as good get tangled in personal considerations, bad habits of living, red tape. 

Roosevelt keeps his eye on his dream, his specifications from the heaven within, and puts in his best luck wherever and whenever there is a chance. If anybody gets in the way of that lick so much the worse for him. McKinley put in his best licks after first seeing that all his friends were safe out of the way, and all the proprieties observed. He knew as well as Roosevelt or Lincoln what was right, but he couldn’t do it if it hurt the feelings of his friends, or his wife. Did you ever read Kipling’s “How the Ship Found Herself”? If not, do so. It presents to the imagination a perfect picture of the way the universe is finding itself. 

Kipling describes the new ship, every mast, sail, and bit of timber, every bolt and screw in place, each well fitted, polished, complacent, and proud in its proper place. Then the ship is launched and sails away to sea. As the ship plows ahead, rising to the crest of a great wave only to plunge headlong into the trough, all the little screws and bolts, as well as masts and sails, begin to creak and squeak and shriek complaints. “Oh, you are grinding me to pieces !” shrieks the bolt against the wood. The mast snaps at the deck ; the stanchions groan that they are being ruined and can’t hold on much longer; the yards and masts shriek that their backs are breaking and the sails ought to be slit to ribbons for abusing them so. Every individual scrap of metal that goes to make up the great ship has its own complaint to make about the way its neighbor abuses it. And all this time the ship keeps steadily on, the sailors polish the decks and keep the brasses bright, loose a screw here, tighten a bolt there, drop a bit of oil where it is needed. And after a while the various parts get used to their places and their work, the creaks and shrieks and groans grow softer, and finally everything settles contentedly to its work, and the sharp complaints die away to a full-toned murmur of understanding and good will toward each other and their work. And so the good ship finds herself. 

The world is like that. All these ages we have been crying against our neighbors and our work. We have misunderstood and undervalued ourselves and each other. But always the good ship has kept steadily on her course, and we have been oiled and polished, tightened up or loosened out as need arose, but ever we have been kept to our place in spite of misunderstanding and complaint, unless we happened to be the flea, or rat, or stowaway variety that sometimes infests a ship! And now, in this nineteenth and twentieth centuries, we common parts of the ship are finding ourselves as part of the whole. 



The consciousness of self in relation to the whole universe and God is called cosmic consciousness, the consciousness of the cosmos. It is truly a state of consciousness only and it results from an attitude of mind that some people are born with and others achieve by deliberate prac tice.It is, too, a matter of growth ; for no man can achieve cosmic consciousness until he has grown up mentally to a certain height. It is like the growth of a seed in the ground. 

A grain of corn comes to itself in the earth. Its individual consciousness is born down under the sod. The warmth of the sun draws it upward;  by answering the sun’s urge it sends out roots, finds its food, and does its work. Probably it complains and strains, even as you and I. And ever it aspires, even as we; ever it stretches upward in answer to the sun’s call, even as you and I aspire toward the spiritual sun that beams unseen for us, hidden by the denseness of our earth surroundings. 

And so the little grain of corn does its work and frets its little heart and ever reaches upward, until at last it pokes its little head above the earth and for the first time gets a glimpse of something besides itself. Under the sod the grain of corn was supremely conscious of itself and its limitations and strivings; now it sees other people, the earth and its relation to the whole; it has come into something that to it is a sort of cosmic consciousness. 

The coming forth of the butterfly from the chrysalis is another parallel to this cosmic-consciousness experience; also the coming forth of the child from the womb. In each case it is a matter of coming forth from a cocoon of self- consciousness into a consciousness of life, of other people and one’s relations to them. The ordinary philosophy of life held by the common run of people to-day is a mental cocoon of self-consciousness in which he grows, wriggling, twisting, and complaining more or less, until he grows up to the point of bursting that self-philosophy and coming out of his shell into consciousness of a world in which he is only one of many all urged by a common life purpose from one God. 

To really sense this, as well as to see it intellectually, is to experience real cosmic consciousness. This birth into the cosmic sense generally comes as suddenly and completely as the birth of a butterfly or a babe. There is no going back again into the chrysalis, no going back into the old little-self life. But one catches intellectual glimpses of the cosmic before he is really born into the cosmic consciousness, just as the grub may catch glimpses of the world through his shell, may feel his growing wings though they are not yet unfolded; just as the chick may peep at the world before he fully emerges from the shell. 

The Bible states that they that come unto God “must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.” Even so, those who come into the cosmic sense must believe that they are one with the cosmos, so that they desire or aspire to know the cosmos better and to feel with it. In due time comes the experience of cosmic consciousness, which is an experience, but not a provable thing. It is a religious experience, known by the one who experiences it, but utterly tangible to one who is not ready to emerge from the grub state. 

As well talk color to one born blind as to talk cosmic consciousness to the ordinary man.  Or, rather, to the back-number man ; for it is the ordinary men and women of the twentieth century who are now coming into the world of cosmic consciousness. The religious experience commonly called conversion may be likened to the state of the grub when he first feels his embryo wings and catches a glimpse of the world through his shriveling shell. He is still held fast in his cramped environment, but he begins to realize that there is something larger that he will find in time. This is where the idea of heaven after death came in ; the human grub of past generations died in the grub state; he never came to the open of cosmic consciousness, so his heaven did come after death, as his instinct and theology taught him. The masses died thus. 

Only here and there a seer or a Christ found the cosmic consciousness of heaven within and now. And these, too, realized that the grub  man needed time and countless reincarnations before he could find heaven within and now. This accounts for so much future tense in the Bible, and harmonizes it with the present tense of Jesus’ teaching about heaven and oneness. 

The religious experience called by old- fashioned Methodists “sanctification” is nothing more or less than the cosmic consciousness. Many sought sanctification but few found it, though more than a few claimed it. Conversion means turning to God, the Cosmic One, and trying to imitate Jesus; but sanctification means giving to God yourself, all you know and all you don’t know, and finding yourself in him and him in you as your very heart, desire, and moving impulse. One sees either of these experiences intellectually first, “as through a glass darkly”; as through the thinning cocoon, and, seeing, desires it. Then he meets the conditions and experiences it “in his heart” or emotional center, which is the center of the star, you know, where God is. 

This “heart” of you is what modern psychologists call the subconscious or subliminal mind, of which more anon. Suffice it here to say that the subconscious mind is about 95 percent of you, and that it is like a deep reservoir filled with thoughts and concepts sent into it by way of your conscious intellect. 

The conscious mind is a mere surface or gateway to this big reservoir of you. Not until the 95 per cent, reservoir of your subconscious mind has accepted a truth can you really embody that truth and be saved by it. This is why the old- fashioned religionist belittled intellect; he knew it counted for naught as long as “the heart” was wrong. A hundred years ago it was fashionable to seek conversion, because the time was ripe for a great many people to come into that consciousness. In this day and age many of the sons and daughters and grandsons and granddaughters of those converted a hundred years ago are born and brought up already converted; they are born with a degree of spiritual consciousness never dreamed of before this age, except by the occasional prophet and savior. 

I knew in Oregon two old people near- ing the threescore-and-ten milepost, who were born in this consciousness. I quizzed them long and often about it. It was a marvel to me then; now it is beautifully clear. They were born converted, and in early youth they came into sanctification, or cosmic consciousness. Their beautiful faces and lovely lives manifested it. My mother was converted when she was about thirty-four, and died two years later, when I was nine. I thought of spiritual things when very young, and was converted when I was less than twenty-five. My two children have practically grown up in spiritual  thought, and I am looking for their children to be born converted. When I was about twenty-seven I came into the experience called then sanctification, now named cosmic consciousness. So by the law of evolution my grandchildren or great-grandchildren may be born cosmic-sensitive! 

In Dr. Maurice Bucke’s book on “Cosmic Consciousness” he gives the following as the truths which the new consciousness revealed to him. 

1. He “came to see and know that the cosmos is not dead matter but a living presence.” 

2. “That the soul of man is immortal; that the universe is so built and ordered that without any peradventure all things work together for the good of each and all.” 

3. “That the foundation principle of the world is what we call love, and that the happiness of every one is in the long run absolutely certain.” To convince your subconscious self of these three truths is to achieve the cosmic sense; for whatever that subconscious self really accepts is what you feel to be true. The intellectual concept does not save you. How can it, when conscious mind is but five per cent, of your total consciousness? You must be convinced of a truth before you are saved by that truth. 

A line from Shakespeare points the way : “Assume a virtue if you have it not.” To affirm a truth, acting upon it as well as you can, ends in subconscious conviction and knowing, or “feeling” that truth. Why not, since we are men tal beings? A high truth firmly held will make over the entire mind, conscious and subconscious. 

To say the truth over to yourself is to “speak the Word” that creates and recreates you. Without the Word, the affirmation, the mental statement, is not anything made or remade in you.  

To achieve the cosmic consciousness, affirm it, affirm it. Take special seasons every day, preferably the first minutes after waking and the last before going to sleep, for special realization practice. First, breathe fully and relax every muscle. Then affirm positively to yourself that the universe is a living and loving presence and that all things work together for the good and joy of each and all. Affirm this several times, positively. Then relax as fully as possible, get limp all over, and imagine that One Living Presence of Love enfolding you warmly, filling you with the love and wisdom of Itself. Think how you would feel if you could feel this to be true. Then go about your work and never mind the affirmations or the cosmic consciousness, either, for that matter. 

If you are faithful to this realization practice you will soon find yourself remembering it and thinking and acting from it without trying to.  And eventually you will find not only your thoughts but your very instinct acting upon the statements you have made for yourself. 

The more good will, enthusiasm, and imagination you can put into this practice the sooner the real cosmic consciousness will be yours. It will be yours eventually, anyway, but you can hasten it by every bit of aspiration, affirmation, imagination, and steady enthusiasm you put into it.



Man is “an infinite little copy of God” and everything in this world is a copy of some portion of man. Every invention existed first in man’s mind. Man has a complete photographing outfit within him, camera, lens, negative, dark room, developers, art gallery, and all. 

The telegraph and telephone came from within man. You cannot name an invention of any sort from the tiniest and simplest to the greatest and most complex; you cannot name a form in nature, nor a principle of growth in nature, that has not its parallel and original in man. And more inventions are coming every day, all coming out of man. And by these things that come out of man we are learning what is in man. One of the most significant things that has come out of man so far is the Marconi system of wireless telegraph. We haven’t got the wireless telegraph all out of man yet, many improvements have been made since wireless telegraphy was first announced, and more are coming. But enough of it has been evolved to give us a very good idea of how men communicate without using either of the ordinary five senses. 

Telepathy is the word coined to cover a lot of cases of communication not explainable through the five senses. Such as that case of Bishop Taylor. He was traveling his circuit one night, and a spring freshet carried coach and horses off their footing, the bishop barely escaping with his life. His wife and daughter were sleeping in their separate rooms at home, a hundred miles away. At the exact hour of the bishop’s accident wife and daughter were roused by a terrible fear, and both cried out that the bishop’s life was in danger. Later they quieted down and slept again. Two days later the bishop recounted his experience to them, saying that at the moment of the accident he gave himself up for lost, and his soul went out to his wife and daughter in a heart-breaking farewell. I need not recount other tales of the sort, nearly everybody has had similar experiences of his own, or knows someone who has. That, under certain conditions, men do communicate with each other without using any of the ordinary known means for such purpose is a fact too well established now to elicit discussion.

But the method of such communication is an open question the whole civilized world is engaged in discussing. Several societies for psychical research spend much time sifting evidence with a view to settling upon some one theory as official. They are after a sort of Newtonian law that cannot be disputed. So far the results are a mass of evidence, more or less reliable, and several conflicting theories. 

The Spiritualists say spirits do it all. Professor Hyslop is now convinced that spirits do some of the communicating. Others throw spirits to the dogs and insist that every spirit in the flesh is able to send and to receive mental messages, under certain unknown conditions. Now please remember that all these views are merely individual opinions, based upon the same mass of circumstantial evidence. 

Nobody has proved anything beyond the phenomena themselves. And all these people are now inclined to agree that probably every man has within himself the ability to telepath, and that probably most of the common experiences of telepathy take place without the intervention of other spirits, in the body or out.  I am inclined to think that all these phenomena take place within and by the power of the individual himself, without outside disembodied spirits having anything whatever to do with it. I believe man is his own telegraph and marconigraph for sending and receiving messages, and that the higher his mind projects into the ethers of pure spirit, the cosmic sense, the more he will learn about his own marconigraph and the better he will be able to use it. 

This does not mean that I don’t believe in disembodied spirits, or in their power to communicate with man. There may be disembodied conscious souls; I neither believe in them nor disbelieve in them. The case stands simply “not proven.” The phenomena that convinced Professor Hyslop did not come up to my “test conditions.” It seemed to me that he accepted spirits on the say-so of a woman who afterward discredited her own testimony. 

Whereupon Professor Hyslop discredited her to save his scientific face! Of course the professor is a trained observer; so am I. And I have nothing to lose and the truth to gain if new evidence changes my mind. But of this I am reasonably sure: that if there are disembodied conscious spirits who communicate with men they are equipped with something like the same sort of telepath apparatus that embodied spirits have. 

Now let us see what we can discover from the wireless telegraph of Marconi, for verily man is like unto it, as Jesus might say. Analogy is after all the best proof of a thing, particularly when the subject of the analogy comes out of man with whom the comparison is made. First, then, the wireless telegraph is based upon the ethers in which we live and move and have our being. The heavenly ethers convey its every message. It is the heavenly ethers through which the message is conveyed, and it  is the earth which receives the current. 

Up in the heavens, at the top of a tall rod, the message is received, and down the rod it comes, to be received close to earth if not in the very earth itself. Think of space as a living, love- vibrating presence; a divine presence that vibrates perhaps to the tone of Nirvana. Every activity of man and of whirling world interrupts the current of this basic Nirvana vibration, and thereby conveys its import to other individuals and to God. In speaking I send out certain sounds that interrupt the etheric current in certain definite rhythm. 

Your ears are fine instruments for measuring the current-interruptions I am making in the ethers. Seeing, hearing, smelling, tasting, feeling, are all based upon this same interruption of the basic vibration tone of the universal substance, which is electric in its nature. The telephone, telegraph, and wireless all are based upon this same principle of conveying messages by interruption of an electric current. In telegraphing, the electricity is made to vibrate through the wire, and the interruptions are made by tapping a key. In wireless telegraphing the vibration of the upper air is used, the interruptions coming from the key. 

Close to earth there are so many other interruptions of current taking place that the wireless key cannot make itself distinguished. Note the difference between telegraph and wireless: in telegraphing, the current is confined to the wire and the message follows that line only; but a wireless message goes out in all directions, as the rays of the sun go out. To get a wire you must be on the line. To get a wireless you can be anywhere ; the only necessity is that you are keyed to the message sent. 

Unless a ship’s instrument is keyed aright it cannot receive the most insistent message sent out from a wireless station.To have a line up to the clear spaces, and to be tuned to the sender, are the two absolute requirements of wireless telegraphy. And of telepathy. The man whose thought stays close to earth; who lives in the tangle of cross-purposes; who looks on the outward appearances as the important thing; such a man must depend upon his five earth-senses for most of the messages he receives. But the man who runs up a line into the clear blue of the cosmic senses receives telepaths and spiritual “leads” the earthy man never dreams of. 

I wonder if intuition is the heaven- wire by which we receive our wireless messages. And I am sure aspiration and inspiration are messages sent over the heaven-wire. In connection with this idea I recall certain discoveries of Dr. Baraduc’s in Paris, and several alleged photograph reproductions of strange psychic phenomena produced by him. Dr. Baraduc has succeeded in photographing what he calls the mental ball. This, he says, is a luminous sphere that floats at the end of a misty cable three or four feet above the head of a person. Dr. Baraduc thinks it is through this misty cable and mental ball that people receive telepathic messages. It may be true. If so I wonder if the wireless telegraph people could not solve some of their difficulties by putting a metal globe at the top of their poles. Dr. Baraduc says that at death this mental ball and its anchoring cable float free and dissolve like smoke. He shows photos of this phenomenon. He likewise shows photos of the spirit or life or aura floating off from the body and dissolving in long vapor-like filaments and streamers. 

I cannot prove to the five-senses man that he has within him the spiritual instruments for sending and receiving messages by wireless. None of these spiritual things can be proved to such a man, any more than color can be proved to one born blind to it. Spiritual things are discerned by new spiritual senses. “Ye must be born again,” if you are still densely material. If you cannot see by analogy, your spiritual, cosmic-sense eyes are indeed closed, and more time must be allowed before you come out of the grub-state. 

Let us assume telepathy and learn how to use it. Nothing like doing a thing to teach us the truth about it. It may be that telepathy has not always been a practical thing among all human beings; that it was merely inherent, as the butterfly’s wings were inherent in the grub ; waiting for a certain stage of development to unfold it. All through the ages there have been a few peculiar persons who manifested the ability to telepath. And many people of the psychic order have had special experiences in thought transference. But all cases seem to have been sporadic and impossible to repeat. Never until this age has there been any attempt made to classify telepathic phenomena and utilize the law of them. All this thinking about it means that the hour is at hand for unfolding our telepathic wings, so to speak. 

One of the first requisites for telepathic communication seems to be that mysterious something called “rapport.” Two people who love each other and are harmonious in thought can exchange thoughts without tangible means of conveyance, while two inharmonious persons seem to make no exchange at all. Dr. Baraduc and his late wife communicate telepathically, and Dr. Bara duc believes and seems to have proved by his photographic experiments that there was a sort of spiritual cord between him and his wife, communicating through those mental balls of which I spoke before. 

Many seers have declared that they could see filmy cords connecting certain people together. Such spiritual lines probably do exist between certain people. It would not be strange if these very spiritual lines were “the pattern in the heavens” that inspired the telegraph; and that one’s thoughts are the “Morse code” understood and translated by those on the line. It looks, then, as if there is a telepathy of wires as well as a telepathy of wireless. And the former is more easily proved and attracts more attention than the latter, because it is more nearly developed as a provable thing. And it looks as if language is truly inspired, as the psalmist says; since certain people are really “attached to each other,” as we say, attached by spiritual lines that are real telepath wires. And this reminds me of another phase of telegraphy and telepathy : we are to have color pictures flashed over the wires, just as many people have had visions flashed over their telepathic wires. If one admits this hint at a hypothesis, it is easy to see how to cultivate telepathy. 

Cultivate harmony and love and community of interests. 

Telepathy by wire has existed for nobody can guess how long. I have seen many cases of it, where two people exchanged thoughts many times every day often without even guessing that they did so. William’s mother and I must have a line up, judging by the number of messages we exchange on little items concerning the household. And William and I are always exchanging thoughts, sometimes sending and receiving messages by intention, but more often involuntarily. We have no mental reservations between us to act as grounders for our thoughts. And this brings me to the main reason that almost settles me in the belief that telepathy by spiritual wire, and. telepathy by wireless, are being unfolded in our consciousness just as telegraph and wireless are being unfolded in the world. I said William and I have no mental reservations to ground our messages. 

Absolute honesty is the electricity that charges the spiritual wires between people and makes possible the transference of thought. A steady current of good will is the energy that carries the thought. Disingenuousness insulates one’s mind so that no spiritual current of goodwill goes out to another. The deceitful, secretive person keeps his good will for himself. Do you see what a wise provision of nature, or life, or God, this is? 

Suppose all the villains of all the ages had been able to run out lines to their victims and read their thoughts, purposes, and plans. Suppose the village gossip could thus get a line on everything. As long as there are villains there must be means of insulating thought, and nature has provided that the villain himself afford that means. He puts up walls of secrecy and dwells within in fear of what is outside. His good will to himself turns sour and ferments, breeding all sorts of boogers to scare him. So, “the wicked flee when no man pursueth.” Not until a man catches glimpses of his oneness with all creatures is it safe to trust him to read the thoughts of others. Just in proportion as his good will flows outward will he come into rapport with others, where he can sometimes read their thoughts. 

Selfishness and its secretiveness and fear are the barriers against rapports with those about us. When we are evolved enough to throw down these barriers, be absolutely honorable and honest and kind with our neighbors and ourselves, we shall find rapports establishing on all sides. To think and do and goodwill unto others as you would have them think  and do and good-will unto you, is the first and indispensable condition for telepathy: To love your neighbor is to send out a feeler, a spiritual wire of Good Will toward him. In due time he will feel that feeler and connect with it, and there you have your rapport. 

The second requisite for giving and receiving conscious telepathic messages is definiteness of thought. I once saw in a New York paper some pictures made by photographing thoughts. One of these pictures represented the Flatiron Building. The building appeared as a wavering pillar of black smoke, with here and there near the top a few spots of light that represented windows. Too many of our thoughts are too wavering and inaccurate to be recognized by the recipient. In telepathic experiments take simple things, observe them carefully, and picture them mentally in exact detail. In sending word messages speak the words very distinctly and slowly in your thought, repeating several times, spelling out carefully, following out each letter accurately as you spell, all without moving the lips. 

This is good mental practice and justifies the time spent, even if the results in message bearing are less than perfectly satisfactory. Definiteness of thought will develop in you by practice in this way, and in other ways, and with every year you will find yourself growing more positive and exact and forceful in your thoughts, as well as more sensitive to the thoughts of others. To receive another’s thought, sit quietly in the silence, let go, and be ready to receive. 

Practice will do the rest for you. So much for telepathy through personal rapport. Now let us sum up with a brief statement of the nature and uses of telepathy. Just as there are two sorts of mind, conscious and subconscious, so there are two kinds of telepathy. One is subconscious and wireless, and practically beyond our control. Subconscious telepaths come to us incessantly from all directions. 

To all intents and purposes we swim in a sea of such messages. And our subconsciousness takes in any of those messages which it is keyed to receive. 

Every ganglionic center in your body, beginning with the great sympathetic center, the solar plexus, which may be likened to New York City; from that on down to the smallest ganglion in your body, of which there are thousands, that may be likened to the little outlying country villages of our land, every one of these centers is a marconigraph station, each keyed by you to receive certain messages from the atmospheric and etheric vibrations in which you live. And this is not all: every cell in your body is an individual receiver of messages on its own account. And each and every cell acts upon its messages received, even as you and I. 

Each receiving ganglion and cell is keyed by you. Remember that. How to do the keying we shall learn later. Now note that all this receiving of messages by the 95 per cent, self of you is done under your conscious mind, outside it. But the reports on those messages come up to the 5 per cent, conscious self of you, by way of the nerves. 

All this bears an exact analogy to the work of ex-President Roosevelt’s commission on the prevention of cruelty to farmers and their wives. The commission did outside of Washington, which stands for the head, all their work of receiving messages from the farmer in the 95 per cent, self of our country; after ward collating and co-ordinating those messages and reporting the resulting opinions back to the conscious U. S. self represented by Congress. It now remains for Congress to key  this country so that its next messages from the farmers will report better things. Note that Washington does not hear and know when you and I get messages from over in England or Germany; it is not informed when we thresh out our discontents in town meetings and local clubs; but the consensus of these things it receives in Congress, the conscious U. S. self, through the regular channels. And Washington on its own account receives messages from foreign countries which do not come by the subconscious route; just as you and I occasionally receive a conscious telepathic message. 

Telepathy is a natural power of every human being, used in the main unconsciously, or rather subconsciously; but susceptible of development on the conscious plane, through aspiration, concentration, definiteness of thought, and practice. 



We are all destined to come into rapport with the whole world through the wireless medium of the cosmic consciousness. Always this rap port has been ours subconsciously. We have ever lived in a sea of messages coming to us from those about us, and from those who lived and thought before us and went away leaving the air charged with their messages. We are heirs to all the ages of thought, and we are living in and by a sea of thought which we draw upon sub consciously but nonetheless effectually. 

This great subsurface reservoir of ourselves composes about 95 per cent. of us, and through it we have been receiving and are receiving, and acting  upon, ten thousand telepathic messages from all corners of earth and heaven, messages we receive as coming in most cases from within ourselves but which really come from without and are received by us. There is no way of deciding how many of our actions and feelings are due to this subconscious reception of telepathic messages, but it is safe to say that somewhere about half or three quarters or more of our feelings and actions are thus stimulated from with out.So large is the proportion that some scientists have declared we are altogether the product of our environment, and these same scientists looked wholly upon the physically traceable part of our environment at that. 

Their instruments failed to measure the telepathic, the occult forces of our environment. It took the twentieth century to develop man to the point of glimpsing this unseen and potent side of life, which the greatest scientists are now investigating. And in the meantime you and I and they have been growing in wisdom and knowledge and wickedness mainly by receiving and acting upon these same subconscious telepaths; calling the impulse our own. They are “our own,” in the sense that we are all one, using the same air, light, sunshine/ wisdom, God, the same psychic and mental atmosphere to grow in and by. They are “our own” impulses in exactly the same way that the center of the star is each point’s own center. 

By that same token do you see why it is so hard for one of us to be fully saved from sin, sickness, death, untrue thought, until all are saved? All the time we are receiving some measure of impulse toward these things by subconscious telepathy. But there is a way, and that way is indicated by the latest invention of the loa wireless telegraph, that enables a receiving station; to be so keyed that it will fail to pick up messages in other keys. 

Every individual has the key of this problem within himself. He can key himself to any pitch he desires, so that thought waves of certain other pitches will pass by unrecorded. The emotions or sympathies are what decide our pitch. They are the life of the subconscious 95 percent. self of us, and upon their pitch depends the kind of thought vibrations we answer to in spite of ourselves and all our high purposes and conscious desires. 

These emotions and sympathies constitute what the Bible calls “the heart.” What a man is keyed to in his heart determines what he attracts as environment and heart impulse. And remember, environment includes that subconscious sea of telepathic messages, race beliefs, heredities in which we live and by which we are subconsciously impelled.  Herein lies the reason that the magnet man does not always attract what he is conscious of desiring.

His conscious desire may be at cross-purposes with his subconscious desire. And the subconscious self, you know, weighs nineteen times as much as the conscious self! No wonder its desires rule. No wonder it’s keynote counts in the harmonies or discords of your life. But that little 5 per cent. self of you is mighty. It is “God in the Highest” of you. It is “Lord God” of you, and of the Bible; and it is given all power in your subconscious self, as well as in your conscious self. That little 5 percent self it is which keys your emotions and sympathies to their message-receiving work. That little 5 percent self is mightier than all below it, and its WORD is LAW. Even its idle word is law, makes its subconscious mark upon you and keys you to more idle words. And these idle words have life in themselves and attract after their kind. The idle words, like the good words, and the evil words, each attracts after its kind, and each builds up its marconi station in you, keyed to messages of its kind. 

You are like the United States, and your 5 percent, conscious self is a sort of Ellis Island. The good, bad, and indifferent from all the world appear at Ellis Island, are inspected, some turned back, others invited to come in and settle. 

Those who are allowed to come in go and settle where there are others of their kind. Some get by on false pretenses. Others are turned back because the inspectors at Ellis Island misjudge, or because a prejudice, a pre-judgment, excludes them, as in the case of certain anarchists. 

So you sit at your Ellis Island and ten thousand thoughts pass in review before you.  And some you turn back, for good reason or for prejudice, and they go their way leaving you untouched, unchanged. And some thoughts you invite in and entertain, and they go their way into the big America of your 95 percent sub-self, and there they find a congenial settlement where they make their homes, breed after their kind, and receive and act upon outside telepaths of their sort. But most of the thoughts that pass your Ellis Island are of the kind you call indifferent, neither good nor bad, just so-so; good as most people’s thoughts, you guess; “good enough,” “harmless anyway”; and these you let in, too, and they find congenial thought- towns and settle there, breeding after their kind and receiving and sending subconscious telepaths to match. And some of your settlements of thoughts are good and make you feel good ; and others are evil and give you evil feelings; and some of them settle in slums, and make you feel very bad indeed when you are conscious of them at all! And your little Ellis Island did it all! If you didn’t exactly create your subconscious America, at least you invited folks in to settle it, and its government and its evils as well as its blessings are the natural inevitable result, with nobody to blame but yourself. 

And you are not to blame because you didn’t know any better and you are learning by experience. So now you are going to be very strict on your Ellis Island hereafter!  No more criminals or incompetents are to get in, that’s decided! You will turn the undesirables back with a denial and welcome the desirables with a yes, an affirmation. 

But what to do with the ones already in, that’s the question ! How shall you go about it to get yourself keyed above all these settlers that seem so in planted and so persistent in increasing and multiplying after their kind, and so determined to smuggle in other influences of their kind by the subconscious telepathic route?



Positive  affirmation is the mandate that keys your body; just as the mandates sent out by Congress key the United States. 

But one must do something besides issue laws to his being, and command his thought-people to carry out the laws. He must also rest from his mental labors of lawmaking and give his thought-people, conscious and subconscious, plenty of time for rest and recreation. “God giveth to his beloved in sleep.” Man gives out his thought-force and emotion while he thinks and works, and he must have the rest of change and of sleep or it will be all giving out, until he is powerless to further. US IN Action must alternate with rest, inspiration with expiration; and it is up to you as the lawmaker of your being to see that every cell of your body gets its full meed of rest and change. 

And how are you to know how much rest your bodily functions need, as a whole or in part? Only by listening to their report. The joy of being is the proof that you are not overworking at least a part of your organization of little cell beings. To keep a good “head of vim” as Stephens calls it, a good head of joy,  vim, is the only safe and sane and sure way to “enjoy God.” And that is your chief end in life.

 It is true that once in a while you can keep on working until you get your second wind, or your third wind. But you can’t keep on living on your second or third wind, and the man who tries to will come out as Dr. Worcester did. He will have to take a long rest to balance the long overworking on the second wind.  The joy of living is the proof of right living, the proof that you are not making galley slaves of a large proportion of your little cell people. “Shorter hours and better work” for your energies is the law of Tightness in you as well as in the commercial world. 

Just as wise business men nowadays look after the clean living, education, and recreation of their workmen, so you must look after the needs and desires of your little thought-people. You stand in relation to your cell lives and energies exactly as God stands in relation to you. 

Don’t be an exacting and slave-making god! Love your energies, joy in them, keep them well recreated by rest and by change of work. Do not try to pass fatigue barriers! What’s the use of it? 

Keep a good head of joy-vim every day and all day and you will do better work and more of it, and be in better trim to get your second wind or third wind if sometime it becomes a real necessity to endure a strain. Take kindly wise care not to overwork any part of your body. Don’t make a mill hand of yourself with long hours of work without thought and love. And don’t let too much of your thought evaporate out of the top of your head while your body idles. Direct much of your thought through your body in intelligent work, but don’t pass the fatigue barrier in any one kind of work unnecessarily.

 Let go and change when your body begins to want to. Your instinct is the true guide in this , trust it and keep on. Practice makes perfect and develops power. To exercise all parts of the body and mind in turn, always changing the field of exercise before the joy of being, not joy of doing, has been lowered, is to fulfill the chief end of man, which is the enjoyment of Good, or God. But all this must come from an inner heart impulse, not from a mere deadhead plan. 

To love the thing you do is necessary to enjoying it and God. And to do it for a purpose larger than that of mere personal development is an absolute demand of the God in you. You are a member of “one Stupendous Whole” whose soul is your soul; and this soul of you cannot be satisfied except your self is developed, not for you alone, but for the good of the whole. Useful work for the good of others is the demand of your being, and without it you can’t enjoy God in you, no matter how systematically you may exercise your energies.


To really enjoy living you must work for others, and do it in such a way that your own development will come through your useful work for others. 

If you run a grocery store with the primary purpose of getting money for yourself you cannot fully enjoy the work nor God in it. If your primary purpose is the real artist’s purpose of supplying people’s wants in the best possible manner at fair prices, there is only one thing that can spoil your enjoyment of God in the work, and that is, lowering your head of joy-vim by too steady application without change for recreation. 

If you love your work and work at it intelligently, not immoderately, you help the world along and develop yourself at the same time. And if your recreations are well chosen, affording complete relaxation from business thoughts and the interested activity of entirely different thought-areas and muscle-areas, your development will be so much more rapid and complete and soul-enjoying. 

The soul-satisfying life is one of all- around activity and development, the life of poise, the natural life, the simple life, the life in which relaxation equals application, and where, no matter how complex the mode of living, mind and body are free to turn readily and with joy from one thing to another. 

Our old conception of life is a straight line, a strain ahead; now we are learning that it is a poise, a balance of thinking and doing that releases love in every activity. Does all this sound complex? It is really very simple, it means simply let go mentally, and follow desire. It means believe that God desires in you, and that by following desire you will learn to fulfill the chief end of man, enjoyment of God, or Good. 

If there is strain in your life it comes from an unnatural idea of life. Don’t try to live up to anything, let go and let the impulse from within move you to every action. Otherwise, don’t act. Accept the inner impulse as good, no matter how it may seem to disagree with your old man-made ideas of duty. This new way of taking your goodness for granted and living from the inner impulse may turn your living upside down for a time. 

When I came to see the artificialness and strain of my life (some fifteen years ago) and let go, I went to sleep for three weeks! Waked up and felt “I ought”— Affirmed myself good, and my sleep impulse good, turned over and went to sleep again. In between sleeps I did what was absolutely necessary to keep others in the home from starving. At last one afternoon came a real desire to get up and clean up the kitchen and get a nice dinner! Ever after I laid for my desire-impulse, followed as far as it moved me, then rested again while another desire brewed within me. 

The result was 

(1) the real enjoyment of good in working out the impulse. 

(2) increasing faith and proof that my desire-impulses were right guides to action, and the lack of them the right signal for inaction.

(3) an increasing number of these desire-impulses from within, with increasing physical energy to carry them out. 

Right impulse, and peace of mind, and physical force came to me through trusting and acting with my own desire- impulses and now-impulses as the voice of God within me. I found the kingdom of heaven within me, where life-impulse is generated, and made my thoughts and actions right with it. All other things were promptly added. 

Health of self came first, but not complete health. Work-impulse came, with power to do. The desire to heal others came, and with it the power. That desire came before I was healed myself, altogether,  and I found self-healing came faster if I healed others, and that my limitations did not hinder other people from responding to my “perfect word.” How I used the subconscious in many healings of others in the family and neighborhood, how I became a suncenter of healing and discovered and applied several new principles of spiritual healing are told in my little “Experiences in Self-Healing” and “How to Wake the Solar Plexus,” and need not be repeated here. 

I found the healing of others the best practice for personal healing and power and development. 

Always begin treatments for self or others with 

(1) meditation.

(2) then full breathing.

(3) then denials if needed.

(4) then positive affirmations, repeated.

(5) then silence, which may terminate in sleep.



Man is a magnet. To be opulent within is to charge one’s self with the magnetism that attracts friends, ideas, money. The right attitude of mind will bring wealth through any business channel that does not run counter to the individual’s belief in right. 

First, choose the business you desire, the one you feel fitted for or specially adapted for. If you can’t choose—just now—then adapt yourself to the business you find yourself in. To love your work, those you meet, yourself, and your methods and goods, is absolutely essential to growing a success. These may all become irksome, after your successful business is established, and your success still goes on, but to create a successful business you must put into its every detail unlimited quantities of loving interest and thought. It is easier to generate loving interest if you can choose your work,  but it is quite possible to do it in any business by which you can serve man’s real needs. 

I doubt if a new thought man can succeed as a saloon keeper, because saloons pander to that which destroys man, not builds him, and knowledge of this fact takes the heart out of the saloon man who learns that all men are his brothers. 

To grow success, begin where you must, if not where you would like to. Put your loving thought into making the greatest possible artistic success of each detail of the work as it comes up. A big success is made up of ten thousand little successes of detail, all pieced together with faith and love for the work as a whole. 

The spirit in you is the only reliable guide to your successful business as a  whole. Ask yourself what you can begin on now to grow success. The thing lies straight before you in the thing you can do or are doing now, unless your spirit is urging you to some certain definite step into something else. When the spirit of you urges a definite step, take it; until then put your love into making successes every hour right where you are. To make a hundred detail-successes a day where you are, and to use some of your recreation time and thought in preparing yourself with a good stock of tools to work with in some new line to ward which your being inclines you, is the road to the sort of success your being calls for. But remember that your chief end is to enjoy good in every day and hour of work. 

Put your loving interest into the now, and ask your spirit for light on how to arrange your details so as to get out of them quickest results in joy and growth.  Ask your desire-spirit these things, and follow its urge in faith. Do not ask your neighbors or friends, or your own sense of conventions. Follow your desire-impulse and have faith in results. Shut your eyes and ears from hearing of criticisms, except from your desire-self. 

Practice proves. You are the worker-out of your successes. Nobody can help you except as they can perchance supply you a tool to work with. You must use the tool. Education supplies tools to you. Your friend may teach you bookkeeping, for instance, and you use it or not, as your desire-urge directs. But conventions are not tools!  They are ruts made by other men. Use them when it makes easier going, but when your desire-urge prefers a new path, a short cut, for God’s sake take it. 

Only so can you make tracks of your own in the sands of time. Be the real thing by following your own desire-urge into new  ways. Who knows but the world needs your new ways? And anyway you need them to fulfill the chief end of your being here at all. To love your work ; to follow your desire in growing it,  to use tools, methods, as your desire urges, to use common sense in all things, to be just to yourself in money matters before you are lavish with the other man, to count in all the costs and allow yourself a fair profit above everything, to pay cash and require cash (or as near it as possible)  to make due allowance everywhere for the Unexpected, to manage always a savings balance accumulated for the Day of Opportunity,  to do all this in joy,  to grow in wisdom and in knowledge and in loving-kindness by doing it, and by doing it to help and bless the world you live in, these constitute the Successful Life every soul desires. 

And every soul can work it out if he will trust his own inner urge and value his joy of being above all material results. The treatment for success is the same as for health, repeated affirmations, present tense, positive mood. I AM what I desire to manifest. 

Do not try to influence others, be and do the thing that attracts you. Remember, success, like heaven, is an attitude of mind that is creating a local habitation. 

Success comes first in thought, and as the thought pattern appears, Love creates in its image and likeness. Read “The Science of Getting Rich,” by Wallace D. Wattles, and my own “How to Grow Success,” and “How to Wake the Solar Plexus” and “Experiences in Self-Healing.” The latter contains my own experiences in outgrowing poverty.



I wonder if you are now realizing the great truth that this universe is a big Living, Loving Presence that feels and thinks and loves through you and in you. And that the chief end of you is to be the glory of this Presence, and enjoy it forever. 

To know thyself is to know the Divine Presence and its ways within you. And the way to this knowledge and illumination is the way of aspiration and inspiration ; the way of communion with the One Loving Presence; the way of dedication and consecration; the way of resignation to the will of the One Presence, trusting that step by step the wisdom of the One Presence will reveal itself. 

Solomon’s prayer is the only availing one : “Give therefore thy servant an understanding heart.” It is not enough to pray for, or aspire to, wisdom, unless one is first given over to be the servant of that wisdom. And neither is it enough to ask wisdom for self alone, for wisdom is One, and grants no favors to you that are disfavors to your neighbor. Not until your very subconscious center is given over to desiring the good of all can you come into real rapport with the Love Presence, so that the real joy as well as the wisdom of it is yours. You cannot enjoy God, the Loving Presence, except you glorify and exalt it above everything, above YOURSELF. Resignation, consecration, aspiration, then exaltation of spirit. After this all things shall be added. And the work is all done in your thought. 

Remember that your thought keys your body. This does not mean that the body is nothing and has no effect on thought, that thought is all there is to it. Thought is not a vaporous nothing thrown off by the body; thought is of the same identical material as the body. The body is congealed thought, and that which we commonly call thought is positive to the body, and acts upon it. Thought is to the body what steam is to ice. Thought is like steam generated in a boiler and turned to moving our bodies intelligently. 

Think a moment : What part of your body can control a thought in your mind? Can your whole body put a thought out of your mind? No. Your entire body may be so paralyzed it can not act, and yet there will be thoughts in your mind. But a single thought of your mind can move your body in any direction; a joy in LESSONS IN thought can galvanize it to life ; a fear thought can stop its machinery forever. Just one thought can make or unmake a body, but a hundred bodies cannot stop a thought, once recognized. But this does not mean that thought and body are separate things, any more than it means that thought is powerless or the body no matter. It just means that without thought man falls down and scrambles on all fours; that thought is the wisdom-power that directs the action and evolution of body, and without it we revert to imbeciles and idiots. 

No, it is not the body that makes the idiot; his mother’s thought ran amuck somewhere and pied her unborn babe’s poor little thought-built but negative body, so that the real self cannot think through it. The idiot’s body is an incomplete thing that limits the expression of its thought. For, though the body cannot control thought because it is negative to the thought that expresses through it, yet it can limit the output of thought, just as a small or incomplete flour mill can limit the output of flour. The mill does not regulate the supply of wheat to be made into flour, but its capacity determines the amount and quality of flour it can turn out. In the case of the mill, both mill and wheat are negative, having no effect in changing each other. But the human thought mill, the complete body including its brain, is very greatly affected by the thought it turns out. 

This is fact beyond peradventure of doubt; and this one fact looks to me like proof positive that both brain and thought are developed and used by a YOU that is positive to both; that stands in relation to brain, body, and thought as the mill man to mill and wheat; is positive to both, and changes and improves both as fast as he can to increase size and quality of output. It looks to me as if this positive YOU is the evolutionary energy of the universe, and is identical with “the unknown God” that Paul tried to “declare” unto the Athenians, and that ecclesiastics and layman teachers have been trying to understand and declare ever since. That body and brain are used by an unseen power that calls itself I, or I AM THAT I AM, or I AM WHAT I AM DECLARING, AND THEN SOME! is to me a proved assumption even without the dicta of scientists. I feel and KNOW, by observation and introspection, that I  use my body and my brain, that I call up new thoughts; that I command them. 

And Victor Hugo knew this when he wrote in his later years those immortal words which find echo in many hearts:  

“I feel in myself the future life. I am like a forest once cut down; the new shoots are stronger and livelier than ever. I am rising, I know, toward the  sky. The sunshine is on my head. The earth gives me its generous sap, but heaven lights me with the reflection of unknown worlds.

You say the soul is nothing but the resultant of the bodily powers. Why, then, is my soul more luminous when my bodily powers begin to fail? Winter is on my head, but eternal spring is in my heart. I breathe at this hour the fragrance of the lilacs, the violets, and the roses as at twenty years.

The nearer I approach the end the plainer I hear around me the immortal symphonies of the worlds which invite me. It is marvelous, yet simple. It is a fairy tale, and it is history.

For half a century I have been writing my thoughts in prose and in verse; history, philosophy, drama, romance, tradition, satire, ode, and song; I have tried all. But I feel I have not said the thousandth part of what is in me. When I go down to the grave I can say like many others, “I have finished my day’s work. But I cannot say, “I have finished my life.’My day’s work will begin again the next morning. The tomb is not a blind alley; it is a thoroughfare. It closes on the twilight, it opens on the dawn.”  

The fact that brain, body, and thought do not always obey me proves not that I am less I, but that the brain and body and every thought I have called into being are endowed with volition and wisdom of their own within and by me, that every thought is a mental creature with will of its own, created under and subject to those same seven principles elucidated in the first three chapters of this book. The unruliness of my thoughts and of my thought-made body only proves that they are alive in their own right; that the kingdom I am trying to rule is a kingdom of living beings, not of dead putty. 

But there are other proofs that I and my thoughts are one in exactly the same sense that the Father and I are one; that my body and my thoughts are literally my alive body and my living thoughts, not me myself. 

For formal scientific proof that your body and brain are your instruments, not you, con William Hanna Thomson’s “Brain and Personality.” 

For present purposes let us assume this to be true : That you act upon your body to produce -conscious thought, which, in turn, acts within your body to produce a finer body, and, in turn, still finer thought. 

If we assume this or accept it as proved, we cannot evade seeing the point that the thoughts in our minds are the only thing we need be solicitous about. If we let only desirable thought-people through our mental Ellis Island gate we need not tag around after them to see that they do no harm. We can sit serene and trust them to settle where attraction takes them, and get busy about their work of improving conditions within us. In other words, we think the WORD into our cosmos and it straightway makes its mark there, after its kind.

The United States let in a generation or two ago, a Word, a man named Roosevelt. Uncle Sam didn’t tag him with policemen to keep him out of mischief. And from this man’s natural activities came good work, marriage, children, grandchildren, Theodore Roosevelt and the imprint for good which he has made. All from one little man let in. 

This is an exact parallel and not at all an exaggeration of the power the right sort of thought exerts to make its mark on your body. Yes, an exact parallel, for your thought-words form the cells or families of your body, and these increase and multiply and work and think, and wield an influence on the whole body, just as people do in the whole world. The same laws work everywhere in every atom and cell. So right living resolves itself into right thinking. It resolves itself into a matter of Good Government of Thought-People, a government that lets in the best thoughts to settle your body and improve it,  government that looks to the needs of all its settlers, that conserves and develops its natural resources; that educates every one of its people and gives everyone its opportunities and responsibilities in helping along the whole; a government of the head that despises no part as common, that HONORS the hand, the foot, the excretory organs, the sex organs, too, and develops each for the good of all. 

Eugenics as well as hygienics must rule within the personal body if it is ever to rule within the world.  (Publishers note: The debate of eugenics was real, and had real consequences. I left the original text as is, rather than altering history)

Now the question is, how shall we get our kingdom in order? 

We cannot kill off all the evil and false thoughts we have let in in the past any more than we can kill off all the negroes and Indians and criminals and incompetents and hobos in our United States and give the country over to the nice, cultured, respectable folk. Only one course is open to the individual and the nation alike: To admit hereafter only desirable thoughts and people; to educate to useful service every one already within the gates, to restrain and educate the lawless, and to patiently trust the rest to that law of nature which says the “wicked shall not live out half their days” while the “righteous shall inherit the earth.” And that last clause is the most important one of the three, and the first. For without trust in the law of good, the evolutionary principle of nature, if you prefer that term, without trust in God as the power that is working all things for good and better, and best, as the religionist says, without this faith in the outcome of effort no government could make the effort to keep out the undesirable invader, or to educate to useful service those already within its borders. Nor could the individual without trust in this same law in himself ever muster up the energy to perform the same service for his thought-built body. 

Lack of faith in the One Living Presence and the Law of Evolution is the cause of pessimism. “Pessimism is a disease,” Horace Fletcher says.  It is. Pessimism is creeping paralysis, and its cure is faith and work. 

At Ellis Island they have a set of definite rules by which they judge an immigrant before they let him through the gates. 

So you and I need a principle by which to judge the thoughts we allow in our minds. 

The best rule I know of is given in one of Paul’s epistles: “The fruit of the spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering (or patience), gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness (meekness of a child), temperance (in all things); against such there is no law.” 

So thoughts that bring love, joy, peace, patience, gentleness, meekness, goodness, faith, and temperance are to be invited into our minds and given every encouragement to dwell within us and increase and multiply and take care of themselves, and glorify and beautify and healthify us. When you are in doubt about a thought measure it by all nine of these words and turn it back if it isn’t up to standard. Is it a loving thought? Is it a thought that radiates joy? or peace? Sometimes you can’t see the joy in a new thought that comes up, but you can always tell whether its entrance would bring peace. Is it a thought that brings patience? gentleness? meekness? goodness? Is it a thought that brings a temperate feeling? Above all, is it a thought shod with faith? Faith in God within you, and God within the other man? 

If the thought can honestly answer yes to this quiz, open wide the gate and let him in. If he can’t, turn him back to the bottomless pit whence he came. 

But don’t worry if he refuses to get out of your sight, or if he keeps coming back again. Keep turning him down until he gets discouraged and quits coming! And the best way to keep him from coming up before your gate is to turn your back on him and get busy with thoughts that can pass the quiz with plenty of room to spare. The gate within you is the gate of CHOICE, or Will. 

You can choose your gate open to a thought, or you can choose it shut! The thought, being alive on its own account, may hang around if you choose to shut the gate in its face, but it cannot get into you or hurt you until you choose to let it. Your choice is the one mighty little bit of your being over which you have absolute control. “Choose ye this day whom ye will serve.” Choose you this moment what thought you will invite in. Practice in choosing the right thought us makes perfect ; and by and by your body and brain will be so settled and governed by the right thoughts that unright ones will cease to besiege you for admission. 

For the law of attraction works here, you know, to him who hath been settled up by evil thoughts shall more evil thoughts come. Hobos avoid certain well governed towns in Massachusetts as they would a pestilence, so will hobo thoughts avoid the mind that is positive to them. 

Here come in the positive and negative attitudes of mind that puzzle so many people. Choice is the gate which, closed, makes you positive, and opened, negative. You cannot stand ever at that gate, waking and sleeping, to guard the entrance, any more than Congress can stand ever at Ellis Island judging immigrants. But you can do within yourself exactly what Congress does, issue a mandate that will cause certain sets of brain cells within you to perform that office. 

You never see those cells any more than Congress sees the inspectors at the island, but they are appointed to their work just the same, and they are just as faithful at the work as the steady positiveness of your mandate requires. You are the lawgiver of your being, and at your command are all the competent officers needed for the work, and all the police and detective and navy organizations needed to see that they do it. Not a function or functionary in public government but has its exact analogy within you. 

I wish you would read in this connection several chapters on cell life and organization in C. A. Stephens’ “Natural Salvation.” The ultimate conclusions in that book are shortsighted, it seems to me, but the scientific description of the human organization is wonderfully vivid and exact. 

You can send into your being a positive mandate to invite in the thoughts that can stand that quiz and to turn back the thoughts that can’t; you can reiterate that mandate positively, calmly, firmly, at certain set periods every day, never minding it much be tween times, and if you are faithful at the practice you are just as dead sure to see results in due time as the world is to see the flowers bloom in the spring, and by the self-same law of growth. 

Patient, persistent reiteration sent into your body will just as surely take root and grow and produce after its kind as orange seeds will grow if planted in the right place. And I don’t care whether you have faith in the practice or not. Faith is necessary to the process, but if you have faith enough to keep you at the practice, that faith will grow like any other planted seed, and in time you will have all the faith you know what to do with. 

To do the thing plants your grain of faith, and the natural law of growth takes care of the rest. Whatsoever things you desire you can manifest in your body by sending forth your mandates in LOVE, JOY, PEACE, PATIENCE, FAITH, TEMPERANCE, and trusting the life in you to do the rest. 

There is nothing good that you can imagine for our people of the United States that cannot be worked out by those people, if you give them time and good mandates to work by. The gates of hell and Ellis Island cannot and will not prevent. If you have the seership of the cosmic consciousness you know all good is being worked out among us, and your joy and enthusiasm and love grow with the thought. Even so within you is all good being worked out. You are building better than you know. 

Your ideals and desires are YOU, and unceasingly they are working themselves out within and through you as within the world. Wake up now, and accept your good for granted, and work consciously for it and with it. Take your dominion in the only place you can, in your thoughts, and the spirit of all life will do the rest.



We all want, first, to be delivered from sin and sickness; then from poverty. I think I have shown you by antithesis that sin is merely a falling short of the ideal which is our higher, positive self, and which constitutes our conception of what we and our doings “ought” to be. 

As our ideal grows larger our conception of what constitutes sin changes. Always that “ought” urges us to live up to our ideal, and this we cannot always do because our ideal is ever ahead of our ability to make real. Until we understand this and forgive ourselves for our shortcomings we are destined to writhe under that sense of sin. Until we do understand ourselves and our relation to the One Life we think it is God’s forgiveness we are after, God outside ourselves. 

To supply this need of forgiveness came Jesus and other saviors, who knew themselves as one with the Father, and who in his name rolled that paralyzing burden of sin from the hearts of the self-ignorant ones. This was an expedient necessary and aidful until man’s intelligence should develop to the point of finding God in his own heart, the God of love and wisdom, not of anger and revenge, ready to forgive his every shortcoming, and ever urging him on to fresh effort. The “ought” in every human heart is certain to create a sense of sin or shortcoming, and this sin must find some sort of forgiveness, or hope dies and there is no joy in effort. Forgiveness of sin is necessary. “God was in Christ Jesus reconciling the world unto himself”, not reconciling himself unto the world, as the sin-burdened one naturally supposed. Until the sin-burdened one was reconciled he was too discouraged to try again to live up to that ideal of his of what he “ought” to be and do. 

Forgive yourself through knowing yourself. Choose to admit and to god speed thoughts of self-forgiveness. 

But remember that to forgive yourself you must first forgive all others. Non-forgiveness expresses in tension and fear, no matter whether it is non- forgiveness of self or of somebody else! “To know all is to forgive all.” 

Know yourself and all others as in complete and growing expressions of GOD, and you can forgive all shortcomings. To do this, take those Twelve Planks of the New Thought Platform into the silence with you and live with them. Do it every day. Take one plank at a time and live with it, meditate over it, pray with it, think by it, for a week. Take special periods two or three times a day for “holding the thought” stated, holding the thought quietly, waiting and listening for the One Spirit’s illumination of the text. At the end of a week take up the next plank in the same way. Follow this up with the whole twelve statements. 

By the end of the twelve weeks’ faithful work you will find it no effort to forgive yourself and all the world. And most, if not all, your diseases will disappear with your grudges, your un-forgivingnesses. 

For hard feelings are at the bottom of all diseases, if they are not indeed the only thing at the bottom of them. For hard feelings are literally hardening of the feelings and of the whole nervous system; and this is the beginning of all disease. 

Hard feelings result in hardening of the nerves, then of the arteries. These eventuate in shutting off blood supply in some portion or portions of the body, and inflammations, tumors, cancers,  and what not appear. 

So disease grows from the mere disease of hard feelings to the violent pains of approaching disintegration. And mind you, thoughts, HARDENING thoughts, are at the bottom of it all. THE CURE is softening thought, thoughts that wake love, joy, peace, faith in God, men and self; thoughts of patience, gentleness, temperance. 

“Love your enemies, do good,” is the new thought specific for sin, sickness, poverty, and death itself. As to specific ways of treating disease, there are many; and the best formula for you to use is your formula, not mine. And indeed I have no formula; I use the thought that comes up to my mind in connection with any particular case, always taking care to state it in the positive mood, present tense. This is what Paul Militz used to call the “perfect word,” the statement that the thing is complete now. “I am going to be well,” will keep you going, but never arriving”. I AM WHOLE NOW,” backed by temperate action, and persistently used, will do the work. 

The same perfect word may be applied to any specific part of the body that happens to be specially hardened and diseaseful, as well as to your being as a whole. All scientists agree to-day that “the blood is the life of the flesh,” as somebody said in the Old Testament. 

All up-to-date doctors diagnose by blood tests. They measure the quality of the blood through a magnifying glass; and the pressure of the blood, which latter indicates accurately the degree of hardening of arteries, through either nerve tension or calcareous deposit. And all advanced doctors aim first and last and all the time to make rich blood and to keep blood pressure normal. That they depend wholly upon drugs  to do this is their misfortune and the patients’. But even this is passing the calamity stage through the new movement of Dr. Cabot and others beginning in Boston to develop a sort of Emmanuel movement of their own, teaching their patients how to substitute right thinking and right living for drugs. 

The mental scientist says that right thinking and feeling is the one essential for health. The physical scientist says all diseases are blood diseases and that pure blood well circulated is the one essential. 

But I say unto you that both these things are equally essential to a sound mind and body. And I also say that neither one can exist without the other; that right thinking and pure blood act and react upon each other; that whatever affects one has its equal effect upon the other. Soul, brain, and body are one, built of one substance. 

At Yale the professors and students do much experimenting with a contrivance called a muscle bed. It consists of a six-foot table poised as delicately as a druggist’s scales. A man lies full length on this table exactly in the center, so that the ends are evenly balanced. The professor gives him a difficult problem to solve mentally. He figures away in his mind. After a moment the head of the table tilts slowly downward. The effort of thinking out that problem draws the blood to his head and the delicate scales show it. Then the table is balanced exactly again for another trial. “Now think of your feet,” says the professor. The man thinks steadily of his feet. After a moment, slowly downward tilts the foot of the table. The blood increases in his feet when he thinks steadily of them. This indicates to you why mental treatments for a special organ or nerve center are effective. The blood and the Word work together right at the point where special effort is needed. 

You can think the blood into any part of your body, and the blood will carry food to that part, and carry the refuse and poison out of that part. Remember that blood itself is thought- made and thought-directed; it is subconscious thought in its nature, and that your conscious thought is always the mandate giver for your subconscious thought-people. 

To liken the leukocytes are phagocytes of the blood to policemen is truth, not metaphor. Speak the perfect Word for your body as a whole, and for each part that seems to need special care, and trust the little blood-people to do your bidding. And right here we come to the physical side of life, which it is foolishness to try to ignore. 

Blood may be purified or contaminated by thought ; it may be made sluggish or swift-running by thought; but it may also be contaminated or purified, its circulation accelerated or retarded by physical means. And Life says there are distinct limits beyond which mind cannot go without body, nor body without mind. To prove this quickly you have only to shut yourself up in the bathroom, plug up the keyhole, batten down the window, and turn on the gas. Then think your hardest and best, and see what good it will do you. A half hour of this will convince your friends if not you. Do you see that exercise of the body is absolutely essential, or thinking must come to a stop sooner or later? Breathing is exercise of the body. Breathing is the one thing you MUST do if you are to live and think at all. And evidently you must have the right kind of air to breathe, or you can’t breathe long anyway. Shut up in the bathroom with the gas turned on, all your thinking and your will can’t keep you breathing but a few minutes. And your conscious thinking will stop long before your breathing does. Ever see a person die of asphyxiation? Long after he ceases to be conscious his labor and labor to get air into him. Evidently there is something in the air we breathe without the constant USE of which we cannot think or live. The physical scientist says it is oxygen. I say it is oxygen and a number of finer ethers of which we as yet know little or nothing. But the fact is the same in either event : that we must continuously inflate and deflate our bodies with air, or we can’t think. 

So the bodily exercise of breathing is indispensable to the mental exercise of thinking, as well as vice versa. 

C. A. Stephens says that consciousness and conscious thought are caused by a sort of bodily cosmic consciousness made by all the little cell-people of our nervous system “holding hands,” as it were, in a continuous chain of mental activity of each cell for the good of the whole body. 

Through our waking hours all our cell-people are attending to the business of the whole. Imagine the nerve cells “holding hands” and flashing messages from one to another through those held hands, each cell a specialist receiving and sending messages for the good of the whole, and you can perhaps grasp Mr. Stephens’s idea of what consciousness consists of. 

Now imagine all the little cell-people getting tired and quitting work at night, all letting go hands and each cell relaxing, resting, playing on its own account, cleaning out its little house, eating supper and going to bed, even as you and I after a day’s work, imagine this and you will have a good idea of what takes place while we tire and go to sleep. 

In the waking time our body cells carry on the necessary work of the whole; while we sleep our cells carry on their own personal work, play, rest, recreate, sleep as they please and must.  Possibly our dreams are glimpses of little theatrical performances got up by some of our cell-people for their own amusement! With this view of personal consciousness Mr. Stephens naturally admonishes you against giving your cell-people too long a day. He advises eight hours’ sleep or more every night, good, sound sleep, induced by a hearty godspeed to your little cell-people to run home now and enjoy themselves. Other medical scientists claim to find what they call “fatigue poisons” generated by all kinds of effort, which poisons induce lethargy and sleep in the cells of the part exercised. According to them these fatigue poisons affect fully only the organs generating them, so the cells of one organ may sleep while those of another are fresh and active, and vice versa. 

This explains why our conscious minds sleep while our stomachs or other organs are working; and why one set of muscles rests while another is being exercised; why a brisk walk outdoors or a ten minute breathing exercise corrects brain-fog. 

According to this new thought of the medical scientist, the fatigue poisons are a beneficent provision of nature to make folks rest. During rest the poisons are all eliminated. Between you and me, I think those fatigue poisons are the natural excreta and effluvia of the little cell-people, and that they just let go hands and clean house after business hours, even as you and I. 

The blood flow carries food to every part, organ, and cell of the body, and it carries off the sewage. This blood flow must be full, pure, and well circulated or there is trouble. The mind must do its share to regulate the blood, but it cannot do it all, as you proved in that closed bath room with the gas turned on. 

Breathing is body exercise that keeps the blood flowing. The lungs have more to do with regulating circulation than the heart has as you can easily prove by a few exercises. Let the person with a “weak heart” practice breathing evenly, taking pains to make each exhalation as slow and even as the inhalation, and he will soon find his heart and circulation all right and his mind- control much improved. 

William Hanna Thomson says insanity is a blood disease; and everybody knows when his blood gets thin and sluggish that his thoughts run like molasses in January, and his feelings are like wild chickens, fluttering, flying, foolish. 

When your blood is thin, no matter what the cause, you are negative to every germ that grows, and you can’t even think straight. Wrong thinking, lack of the right amount of body exercise to keep the blood booming on its course, lack of well masticated, nourishing food, or poisons, or germs, these constitute the four sources of blood contamination. Any in one or more or all of these causes may be active in any one case. And if it is a chronic case you may safely bet that all the causes are active, for one cause cannot long live unto itself in the human organism. The whole thing gets out of order from soul to soul, and each and every part reacts on every other. 

So good common sense tells you, does it not, to eliminate so far as possible all four causes of poor blood supply. 

Regulate diet and exercise your jaws, exercise moderately every organ of the body, particularly your lungs. Think as highly and peacefully as you can. Send your mandate of health into all your mind and body; but give your little cell-people time to rest and regenerate themselves for the task you set them. 

The very first step to health is to take as few steps as possible, but let those be of the sort that will give your little cell- people the right conditions to work in. The first need of the sick one is rest,  absolute rest. Quit stuffing the stomach with anything until the cell-energies have time to throw out the “fatigue poisons,” the decaying matter that is making them groan at their work. 

Your energies need oxygen to burn up the germ-cultures within you, the dirt. Breathe, breathe good, fresh, oxygen-laden air. Breathing is the one exercise the sick man cannot overdo, unless he tries breathing foul air. Fresh air, outdoor air well breathed the sick man MUST have if he is ever to get rid of the poisons and germs that are killing him. Water he must have, all he can take of it, to make his blood stream run free and to carry off the poisons. Food he should not have at all for several days, because it takes energy to digest and assimilate food, and the sick man’s energy must go first for the cleaning out of the poisonous matter. 

A sick man’s body is in the same condition that Messina was after the earthquake, full of decaying cell-bodies that must be got rid of quick, a task that requires every energy and cries for more. Every man must be fed, yes, and every cell must be fed. But just as relief was rushed to Messina, so is relief rushed to diseased parts of the body from stores already on hand. 

That is the real meaning of inflammation in the body—>a rush of blood and cell-people to clean up the trouble. Doctors now apply ice to regulate inflammation so the cell-people can work to better advantage, just as the government applied martial law to keep back the mobs of people who couldn’t or wouldn’t help clean up at Messina, and at San Francisco. 

Mobs retard the work of cleaning up, and every atom of food above the line of absolute need does the same thing. 

Imagine the workers at Messina stopping to cook and eat three or four quails on toast apiece every day, to keep them from spoiling, and then taking the usual rest after a big meal, and you will see the point. 

The food taken in by the sick man simply adds to the work and to the decaying heaps that must be disposed of, or pestilence gets in its work. Oxygen to make the fires burn up, water to keep the blood stream clear and flowing, lung exercise to keep the oxygen coming and the blood flowing,  these are the indispensables to the sick man.MIND DOES THE REST! Do you see the point? If you are still inclined to quarrel with the use of physical means, answer me, please, this question: If mind is all, why not let mind do it all? Why insist upon helping mind by stuffing in food? Why not cut off the densest of material aids, food, and let mind, air, and water do the work? Why not trust mind to call for food when she needs it? She certainly never calls for food in case of a really sick person. This ought to be a sufficient hint that she doesn’t want it. 

Now let us get back to our center again. The mind, or soul, or God runs the body by making it breathe in pure air and breathe out the effluvia and excreta of its countless billions of cell-people. The excretory organs get rid of unassimilated matter-food that was taken in without being properly prepared, or that was unneeded. 

Here is prophecy: the time will come when man’s digestive canal will be always as clean as the inside of a baby’s mouth, and there will be no excreta; for we shall know better than to take into our stomachs more than we can excrete through lungs and pores. In due time our stomach and our bowels will follow our vermiform appendix and our coccyx into the bottomless pit of all useless things. 

We eat air through lungs and pores; and in air is every constituent of foods. Why not do all our eating and excreting through lungs and pores, as plants do? Why not eat air, drink water, and excrete perfume like the lily? It is desirable. And desire is true prophecy.



If you were going to run a Marathon race would you prepare for it by sleeping until the last minute, then tumbling out of bed in a hurry, throwing on any old thing that came handy, and starting off at your highest possible speed? If you did you would certainly fall by the wayside before you had reached the halfway mark. And yet to the average man and woman every day is a little Marathon race with Time, and many of us begin it in just that haphazard sort of hustle. 

If we don’t hustle, we drag and complain, or we snap at every touch of those who are running the same little race beside us. When Hayes won the Marathon he trained for months beforehand. Every handicap of his living was laid aside, he ate the plainest food, kept regular hours, trained carefully every day, kept his mind ever polarized to the one thought of success in that race. And because he made this careful preparation and ran the race in the most judicious fashion, beginning very easy and gaining speed as he progressed, he came out ahead of everybody else, still in good trim. 

Dorando and others in the same race started out with the idea of distancing everybody in the first mile. For this one reason that they ran too hard at the beginning, they collapsed before they could reach the goal. They had spent their energy too lavishly at the start, while Hayes husbanded his. 

The successful life is made up of a succession of successful days, every day being a little Marathon by itself. If we live a successful to-day, we make a wise preparation to live a successful tomorrow, and so on, day after day, year after year, through our whole lives. 

Only today is ours. To-day we may make the right preparation, make the right and easy start, run the successful race with time, and close the day a victor. This day it is possible to do that. How shall we prepare for it? How husband our energies and direct our efforts? 

Let us begin the night before, by going to bed right, and at a reasonable hour. To go to bed right one should have fifteen minutes of quiet time for good reading, meditation, and affirmation before he closes his eyes. Seat yourself comfortably and read a chapter in the best book you know of. Read slowly and meditate frequently. Get quiet, let go, and permit the Spirit to show you the real meaning of what you read. Aspire to know the truth, and remember that you are one with the Spirit of Truth, and that you make the connection by letting Truth into your thought, through aspiration and meditation. Be still and know that I AM GOD. After reading, think over your day, and remember all the good things which have happened. If any unpleasant things come up accept their lesson, but deny their reality, deny their power, bid them begone and forgotten. 

Search for the good things in that day, and with every one that comes into your mind give thanks to the One Spirit which “worked in you to will and to do of his good pleasure.” Invoke the Spirit to continue working within you, open your mind to It, love It. As you go to sleep remember that the One Spirit of love and wisdom and power enfolds you and moves through you while you sleep, cleansing, rejuvenating, reorganizing, getting you ready for the morrow. 

Tell yourself that you will sleep soundly, trustingly, well, and that you will wake in the morning, bright, interested, and full of power.  And in the morning. When you wake up, wake up. Rub your eyes promptly, stretch yourself with vigor and enjoyment for just half a minute, and then step resolutely to the floor. Do a few physical culture stunts to set your blood circulating. Take a few full breathing exercises before the open window. Bathe and dress properly and expeditiously. 

Concentrate on these things, and do them in the best possible manner, in the shortest possible time without hurrying. If you have done these things with interest and good will, you have already performed half the work of getting your mind focused and directed for a successful day’s work. Now complete your preparation by remembering again the one source from which you are to gain wisdom and power to make this the most happy and successful day of your life up to the present time. Thank this power for working in and through you, direct your mind to heed its promptings.  Read again for a few minutes from some high-potency book—perhaps the Bible, or Emerson. Get your mind down to the now and remember that you are to begin easy, like the successful Marathon runner. If things go wrong, let them go. 

The only important thing to you is to keep going easy. Someone has said that man is not fully civilized before ten o’clock in the morning. This means that he is either stupid or snappy until he gets well started for the day. These directions are intended to help you to concentrate on getting started right in fifteen or twenty minutes, to show you how to do in the first half hour of your day what most people require three to five hours to do. 

This gives you a longer day and higher potency without taking away from your sleeping hours. After you have connected yourself in thought with the one source of wisdom and power and right direction, turn a few minutes of your time to planning your day. 

Divide your work up into essentials, and non-essentials, and frills. In the first division put those things which absolutely must be done, and along with them be sure to include several short rest periods for yourself, in which you are to again read high potency books and reconnect yourself in thought with the one source of power and wisdom. 

Be sure to put nothing in this division of essentials that can possibly be included as non-essentials or frills. In making this sort of division of your day, you get a better sense of proportion, and the things which are crowded out of the day will not burden you with a subconscious sense of defeat. 

Now you are properly prepared and directed for the day, body, mind, and soul. And you begin easy and gain impetus as the day goes. You likewise gain satisfaction as the day goes, because you find that each thing you do is done beautifully, i. e. it is done in the best possible manner, and the proof of it is in the sense of satisfaction which the thought of it wakes within you. Your day becomes a succession of things well done, and with every hour the sense of success, the sense of satisfaction, increases. 

By night you may be tired, but your subconsciousness will be singing! In right doing there is great reward, and right doing is always proved step by step by that little subconscious “well done” which is the blessing of God within you. When night time comes, remember to be grateful. Gratitude makes sure the connection between you and the one spirit of wisdom and power, love and joy. Be grateful for the power that enables you to live a successful day. 

Commend yourself in peace to the one Spirit, to work within you it’s goodwill, while you sleep. Tell yourself that you are giving up soul, mind, and body to the workings of love and wisdom, and that you will wake up in the morning bright and interested and ready to advance. Live one day at a time, live a successful day, and you will find each day a preparation in full for a better one coming. This is to live the life satisfying, the life useful and advancing. 

I learned these things in the most expensive school, Experience. Much trouble of soul, great effort and thought and practice gave me the secret. I glory in it more every day of my life, and I pass the secret on to him who will use it. None other can take it!



I think it is the Theosophists to whom we are indebted (?) for the idea that God is a very sublimated being a long way off, whose Lords rule over the solar systems in space, giving their commands to Mahatmas or something, some of whom dilute it and fix it up and pass it on down stingily to a few very uncommon mortals scattered over this earth, mainly in the Orient. 

According to this philosophy the spirit is a long way removed from ordinary mortals, and the only wisdom that comes to mortals has to trickle down through beings of ever so many shades of superiority to said man. According to this theory (for it is only a theory and nothing else) 

God is too intangible and superior to have anything whatever to do with directing man. 

Mahatmas apparently amuse themselves with doling out wisdom when and where they see fit. And they get their wisdom from Lords higher up whose chief business in life is to dole out Lord-Wisdom to the Mahatmas. And so on, and so on, ad infinitum. Why not have one anthropomorphic God and be done with it? Why have all these anthropomorphic Lords and Mahatmas between you and a sublimated God who cannot talk to you direct, and isn’t interested in you anyhow? 

It seems to me this sort of theory is nothing in the world but a trituration of polytheism. We have pretended to outgrow polytheism and accept one God, but apparently some of us have only exchanged our poly-Gods for poly-Mahatmas, et al. Right here I want to say that I don’t believe in a poly-God. I believe in One. God, who is just as close to me and to you as he is to any Mahatma or Lord in this universe, I don’t care where he is nor whom. I believe he speaks to us exactly as he did to Jesus of Nazareth. 

I believe that we live in him and by him. “In him we live and move and have our being, and by him we consist.” Take away God pure and simple, and there would be nothing left of you but a dead body—so dead that the worms couldn’t eat it. Bar God out of you and all the Mahatmas in Christendom couldn’t even wiggle your little finger nor make you understand that black is black and white is white. God is your life, your intelligence, your will, your love, your reality. 

Without God you would be a hole in space, if you can imagine such a thing. Without God you could not live, nor move, nor be.  God thought you into being and holds you there, and if all the Mahatmas and Lords in creation were swept into nothingness, God would keep on in-forming you until you grew into a new Mahatma and Lord bigger and better than any that have gone before. You can get away from the Mahatmas and Lords, you can do just as well without them. But no matter whether you sit in heaven, walk on earth, or make your bed in hell, you cannot get away from God, there is a spiritual never-severed umbilicus between God and you through which you get all your sustenance. 

Whatever Mahatmas and Lords there may be in the universe can be nothing more than midwives at your spiritual birth, which is a continuous performance. The more Masters and Mahatmas and Lords you find in creation, the farther away from God you will be in consciousness. Wipe them off the map! Make your own at-one-ment with God, just as the Mahatmas and Lords claim to do. 

This doesn’t mean that you cannot learn anything from any school teacher, or Mahatma, or Lord, or whatever other instructors there may be in the world. You can learn things from sticks and stones and running brooks. 

The teachers in the temple learned from a twelve-year-old child, and I HAVE been clear-seeing enough to learn things from a one-year-old child. There are times and occasions when you can learn very much more from a baby than you can from the oldest Mahatma that ever posed. 

Don’t despise the child and worship the Mahatma. Don’t stumble over the sticks and fall into the brooks while you are gazing adoringly at some self-styled “Master.” Don’t believe everything you hear from persons who pretend to high places and superior knowledge. They may be pretending and they may not. But in either event they can pass on to you none of the wisdom which God has passed on to them. 

Believe only the wisdom which God gives you in the sanctuary of your own heart and mind. In other words, do your own thinking and discovering, touch God for yourself and believe in the wisdom that God gives you in preference to accepting cock-and-bull stories from other people who pretend to be in closer touch with God than you are. 

Nobody is any closer to God than you are.Nobody is dearer to God than you are. Nobody has any more of a monopoly of God than you have. See that nobody has any greater faith in the God within him than you have. See that nobody depends more absolutely upon the God within him than you depend upon the God within you. 

Do the will of God within you, and you shall know what to believe on all manner of subjects. Remember that God is All-Wisdom, All-Power, and All-Presence ; that he is all these things in every pin point of space in this universe; that he is all these things within you, for you to use, to confide in, to act upon. 

Be still and know God. Trust no authority but the authority if your own heart and mind, which is the heart and mind of God. So shall you grow in consciousness of the One God which is your real self and power and wisdom as it is every other man’s real self and power and wisdom. 

Call no man Master, call no teacher Master, call no Mahatma Master, call no Lord Master. Only One is your Master, the One within you.

STATES of Infinite Potential | Manifest Mystery | Becoming YOU

STATES of Infinite Potential | Manifest Mystery | Becoming YOU

If I ask you a question…

Where are you?

At home

At work?

In front of your computer? 

Or a smartphone?

In your body?

In a city?

Are you on a planet?

Are you in love?

In pain?

In yearning?

Where are you and why are you there?

The way you perceive reality depends on “where” you are.

Let’s start with the WHOLE of reality. All of it.

The future, the ast, outer space, all the things you don’t know yet, that you can’t know, and the things that you want to know. The Big Bang, and before the big bang.  Let’s start with ALL.

What is this? This ALL.

It is unbounded pleasures, known as bliss. 

It is connection and oneness.

It is all knowing 

It is all loving.

If you can see reality as it is you would know where you are and where you are going, and who you are. But it’s hidden from us, we have no sense of the ALL, so it is AS IF it doesn’t exist.

Complete perception and total  connection with the force that builds the universe; THAT is you.

The ALL exists in totality. Your future self,  your past, right now, all the states of potential it is all part of the ALL that we can not perceive.

We are like a closed little box with five openings, one for each sense, and we only experience what we can perceive in that little box. 

Our state.

What are you experiencing in there?

Limited perception?

Fleeting pleasures?


All kinds of problems that cause you suffering?

This is your state.

This is “where you are”

Why don’t we experience something “from out there”, from the total of reality? From The ALL?

When we notice something from “out there” from outside of the box, we never really know what it is that we are sensing. Imagine yourself in the box, and your hand blindly reaching out though its box hole, touching and sensing “something’, we think that we know what it is but we never get it right, we never really know the totality of what is out there. Another dimension that we can not perceive.

We determine what we experience, by interpreting it, and giving it an identity, and of course, a meaning.  

The meaning we gave it is entirely dependent on our program.

Our program never tells us what the outer reality is, it simply reduces it to the smallest meaning that our own individual program can perceive. 

Many people want LOA to be as simple as possible, a good sign that our program is pretty small.  LOA has become a children’s version of what manifesting actually is.Many people live inside their box, and never understand that manifesting includes the ALL. All of the states that exist in potential, and not just the experience from within the box.

Everything that you perceive through the five box holes, your senses, is processed by a program called “ego”, and I mean the ego the way it is defined by Patanjali in the Yoga Sutra’s. The “I-Maker”. The definition of ego can vary depending on again…your programming, but here I mean it as the tool for identification.

The input of the box comes through the five box openings, and the meaning creation of the input is handled by the program called the Ego, and the output of the interpretation is called “the world around us”, or our circumstance.

But THIS isn’t REAL reality. It is just the way it appears to us.

Out there, The ALL, the total reality operates on an entirely different program. The ALL builds and guides the entire universe. 

The senses aren’t really openings, they are a screen, a retina, and eardrum, a taste bud, that interprets what’s out there, with limited perception.The ego program asks, “What does this have to do with ME, how does it relate to me”? The ALL is so completely opposite to this limited function and interpretation, it only gives, and creates, it is unbounded and complete. 

All states exist in potential, and if the mind can perceive it,it appears in the box reality.

So, you see it isn’t the Law of Attraction, it is the law of Assumption. The appearance of a perception makes a whole new potential reality available to you.

So if I ask, “Where are you?”

The answer you give me, is equal to your state, the state that you are in, and that is how your world is created. If you become aware of another state, another reality materializes. All states exist in potential. If your mind can perceive it, it can materialize in your reality.

What is it that you want to become, who is it that you want to be?

If I ask the question, “Where are you”? Try instead to answer it from the state of potential that you want to embody, and you have shifted state. Now a new reality will begin to materialize for you.


Where are you?

In comfort?

In love?

At home?

In a nurturing state of mind?

Create the place where you are the person that you want to be in your mind, and live there. Ask yourself throughout the day, “where am I right now”? And consciously shift yourself back to your desired state.

Stop breadcrumbing behavior | Manifest sp

Stop breadcrumbing behavior | Manifest sp

Should I manifest a breadcrumbing specific person? Or should I manifest new and healthy love?

Your questions answered in this video:

Is my desire from my ego, or is it a divine desire? Manifesting Fail-proofing

Remember who you are!

Is my desire from my ego, or is it a divine desire? Manifesting Fail-proofing

This trips people up sometimes, I can see that, a second-guessing of desires. “Do I have a right to want this for myself”, is what is usually at the root of this. Well, of course you do, but let me explain why.

We learn to feel unworthy in many ways, and early in life is the most common time to get an “unworthy” message. Others get through childhood just fine, and feel very worthy, but later bump into a relationship that is toxic or abusive, and suddenly find that your previous feeling of value has disappeared.  That you were the cause for the bad treatment. Small children are extremely sensitive to the messages from the mirror of their parents, and I am observing my grandbabies social engagement system develop as we speak, she is two months old, and ever since she was born, she has been seeking for happiness in other peoples faces. I also remember when my youngest was a small child, whenever she arrived somewhere she would announce it like a very happy occasion. “I am here!!” Just so sure that this was going to get the party started.

The opposite development happens easier than we realize, people often ask what they did to deserve their bad childhood, and the answer is nothing, no one deserves bad treatment at any age, but children are like sponges and they absorb the messages from the mirror very fast. Let me show an awful video of what happens to a baby that does not receive a value message:

Trigger warning.

Some people receive a value message, only as an “asset” to the parent, their value comes from making the parent look good, they are over praised, but for things that have nothing to do with their core value. Their core value is unseen, and this could cause someone to develop what is labeled  narcissists.  In the Law of Assumption, psychological labels don’t really exist or help, so I won’t use them much. 

A label like that, for our purposes, is only important in a couple of ways. 

One is that the people who feel unworthy usually worry that they will be “like that”, that they will be selfish or narcissistic if they give more space to their hearts desires, they feel that they don’t deserve money in the same amounts, or love that is easy, satisfying and fulfilling. They are overly conscientious and don’t want to be seen as selfish. You will not be. Don’t worry, you will 100% NOT become a narcissist because you follow your heart, but rather, you will contribute the beautiful gift of being yourself to a world that sorely needs leaders like that.

Second, Other times when the narcissist label could be a little helpful, is for the narcissist themselves, since the inability to show vulnerability might stand in their way to move towards their happiness. Acceptance of self, is different from self aggrandizing, and one involves validating your heart’s desire in the face of potential rejection. The message is the same for you as for anyone else. DARE to dream your dream.

If you are one of the people who are wondering if you are worthy of your desires, you most likely belong in the first category. Both categories feel unworthy, but only the first is usually aware of this pervasive sense of  unworthiness.

Let me walk you through who you truly are, and why your desires are all God-given, and I’ll also tell you a personal manifestation that is so out there, that it is hard to believe. You know I don’t share a whole lot of personal stuff, because I don’t want to use my loved ones as marketing tools, but this one manifestation that happened two or three years ago is very out there, and she won’t mind me sharing.

But first let’s make it perfectly clear that there is not one thing here in the world that survives death, nothing that you can achieve or accomplish will follow you into death, so all things belong here, in the material experience. There is not one thing that is somehow more “holy” over another thing, except for…that one thing that survives death… and that of course is your consciousness. AND In consciousness, lies the operating factor of the material experience, and that is intent. YOUR intent. Have you heard  the saying “it’s the intention that matters”? Well that ends up being way more true than we expected. It IS our intention that matters! It is ONLY our intention that matters. 

SoHOW is it that our experience of having desires is God given, how is it that YOUR desire for a loving relationship that checks all the boxes is divine in origin? How could it POSSIBLY be that your vision of a mega corporation with a hundred thousand employees is divine in origin? Why on earth would your desire for beauty that brings all the boys to the yard be GOD GIVEN? You gotta be kidding right? 

Nope, I am not kidding, and I am about to explain, so that you will stop holding yourself back.

Abraham Hicks, by the way,  tries to point the way, every day, in so many ways,  tirelessly, and still many people worry that it is inherently selfish to want, and that going for your dream is not realistic, and maybe other people can live their dreams but maybe their karma has positioned them to have a better life?

Yes we are handed a prepackaged set of lack of self worth sometimes, but in addition to that, so  much of our self judgment comes from a longstanding tradition of MISTAKEN  religion, (any religion, I am not specifically picking on one). Even  Eastern traditions are included here BECAUSE, they  have a reputation for being more spiritual. For example,  Christianity and  Islam, being more dogmatic,is easy to see that there is guilt handed down through generations, but Eastern spiritual traditions have a history of throwing away the human experience entirely, in favor of meditating on a mountaintop. They simply overcame the problem of “desires cause suffering” by obliterating the Ego fully and totally, and that is just as dogmatic as say the Abrahamic religions, and ultimately, it is not a solution that is open to the vast majority of people living on the planet.

Raise your hand if you are ready to spend your life meditating, instead of pursuing friendships, relationships, building and strategizing a career, feeling satisfaction and accomplishment over your creative expressions and so on. 

I know I am  most certainly not, and even less so when I was younger and heading into life, with a fresh and hopeful  outlook on life! No, I wanted to LIVE, to experience, to fall in love, to explore my dreams.  NONE of my dreams involved a solitary monastic experience…. None. I wanted to kiss a man, and feel what it feels like to fall deeply in love. I wanted to write poetry and express my inner thoughts on paper. I wanted to be seen as lovely, I wanted to travel and see the world. This thing called life, it calls to us, in a way that makes our hearts sing, and quite frankly,  yanking the ego from out under our feet, so that our “desires never cause any suffering” , is A LAME SOLUTION.   It is the solution of a coward, and yet, a whole entire wellness industry is built around it. Is it any wonder why you ask yourself if your desires are selfish or God given?

Let me give you a wholly new perspective, the perspective of LOA, and of the TRUE ancient teachings.

Now that you can see how pervasive this judgment culture is every day, (for example the other day, someone left a comment under my video on Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras chapter Three, the chapter that is exclusively dedicated to manifesting, the chapter that most spiritual Gurus breeze by as if it doesn’t even exist, and this die hard person claimed that those are NOT the right Sutra’s.)  … Well, actually, thay ARE the right sutra’s. The eastern spirituality go- to authority, Patanjali, dedicated a full quarter of his book to

manifesting powers. Interesting….

We are  God’s creation

  • God is consciousness, eternal, infinite, omnipresent, God is the observer
  • The observer is still, constant, bliss, eternal, infinite and omnipotent
  • You can NOT see the observer, because your eyes point outward, all you can see is a projection on a screen of space, this is what is your material experience.
  • God, the observer, is like a lightbulb installed into a projector, and the projector is your body, the lens of the projector is your eye, and the screen that the movie is showing on is your life. 
  • The lightbulb is forever just a lightbulb.
  • Sometimes there is a horror movie showing, sometimes a romcom, but the light bulb is always a lightbulb.
  • You can not see the lightbulb, it is impossible.

But you can become aware of its existence by noticing the way that there is a movie showing on the screen, and you can deduce that there is a light bulb somewhere, in the back of you, the projector.

This is a simplification, obviously, but let’s imagine for a second that you are a lineman, a person, drawn on a piece of paper, like Linus the lineman. I used to watch this guy on TV when I was little, Linus på linjen, was his name in Sweden. 

Imagine that you are him, Linus, and all that you are,  is a line that moves across a line, your eye are no longer three dimensional, but rather one or two dimensional, so that when you look out on your world, your line world, all you can see are lines, or slices of lines. Your world consists of lines or slices of lines. Dots. Everything that happens to you, if there is a curve in your line, is completely mysterious to you, there is a chaotic randomness to the way the line dips and curves.  If I draw in an apple tree in front of you and you bump into it, you don’t see an apple tree, you just see a line, and you don’t know how that tree was suddenly in front of you.  Maybe you draw conclusions of a “punishing God”,  to explain why you bumped into that line, but the truth is that I just drew it in there, and that all you are is a line on a piece of paper, so you  search for ways to explain the mysteries of your line world using the limitations of that line world, and that you will never be able to see me as I am, or my pen.

I explain this so that you can understand that there is a physical impossibility of the human eye to detect certain dimensions. Not only is the human eye, and its operating system; the brain, incapable of seeing the next dimension “up” (which is a fourth dimension),  but  it is also incapable of picking up vibrations that are outside of a certain spectrum

A quick bit of quantum physics, to explain that ALL is vibration. There is no actual matter in the universe, everything is vibration, the double slit experiment shows us that until we observe a particle it is vibration. It appears to be a particle when we observe it. Look up videos on the double slit experiment. 

Bottom line here is this:  We deduce things based on how they appear to our eyes, but it is an inaccurate version of the universe. 

Imagine a few hundred years ago when people thought that earth was flat, their inability to imagine another dimension was even more restricted, we evolved, and we also happen to have something called “the third eye” that sees vibration, and is able to detect what for example the fourth dimension looks like. 

Why does this matter?

Because we can’t see who we truly are, and we CANNOT see the universe as it truly is, so we believe ourselves to be living in a random and chaotic world, where if we walk into an apple tree, I might attribute the cause to be “God’s wrath” or something like that.

People attribute the wrong cause to effects every day and all day due to the inability to see who we truly are.

 We are told that we are “Created in “God’s image.” 

God, we are told, is eternal, bliss, awareness, infinite, all, consciousness etc

This means that we are: An out-pictured mirror image of consciousness. 

We are an image of God, and our world is an image of us. 

Why does THIS matter in terms of our desires being GOD given, or divine in origin?

Consciousness is BLISS, love, eternal, etc etc. Consciousness is NOT equal to striving, fear, judgment, anger, greed, envy, wrath, or apathy and so on.  IConsionsess is: Sat Chit Ananda, (awareness, bliss and consciousness. Don’t skip over the bliss part please, a lot of people do. Bliss is the same as an insane and amazing love unlike any other. 

What consciousness, or God, is not, are all the things that are felt as negative emotions. 

Whatever is NOT Bliss and omnipotent consciousness, is NOT God.  


Awakening to consciousness is an experience of utter bliss, utter perfection, and an empowered sense of oneness.

Our desires are generated by this source consciousness, which has no other way of experiencing pleasure and joy other than through us.  “It” has no ability to have any experience, other than by way of our experience, so whatever you are experiencing you are also experiencing on behalf of God, the observer, the consciousness in you.  

When you rob yourself of the fulfillment of your dreams, you rob God of his/her/its  only way of experiencing this pleasure.

Florence Scovel Shinn says: 

One’s ships come in over a calm sea. So long as man resists a situation, he will have it with him. If he runs away from it, it will run after him.  

This is just another way of expressing the law of nonresistance. Nonresistance simply means that you are not adding in ideas and concepts of evil, lack, unfairness, or unhappiness. “A calm sea” is your alignment with divinity. Divinity is calm, or zen


God/consciousness has no material acting power beyond the intent to give us life. When you think of God as an external force that acts with vengeance upon your life, as unwanted events occur, you are just being like Linus the lineman who is unable to see the cause of the effect. 

The effect is something beyond your ability to see it, but it is not random, it is not chaotic, and it is not God’s punishment, it was a direct effect caused by a wrong intent.

Consciousness has only intent in its toolbelt. Your intent manifests, and so everything that you THINK that you are not manifesting because you think of it with a judgemental mind, manifests, because your intent is to show how righteous you are, and immediately, its opposite has to be created. 

The material world is dual, and if there is a cold end of your thermometer, there is also a hot end. If there is small, there is large. If you manifest being righteous, you are simultaneously manifesting unrighteousness. The intention has to take the plug out of that socket entirely for you to have the divine experience. The thought of good desire vs bad desire has to be removed from your consciousness, or else you will always manifest the experience of both in your own life. “There is no good or bad, only thinking makes it so” means this. It materializes, or manifests as matter in YOUR world, as soon as you think it “matters’, pun intended. If it doesn’t matter, it will not “matter” in your world. (Never mind other people’s world. Just keep focus on yours.) The polar opposites HAVE to manifest, but they are always dependent on one another, being the SAME. That is cold, and will never have an opposite of “hate”. And “love” will never have an opposite of “heavy”. The dualities are the same. Love and hate are the same, they are emotion. Hot and cold are the same, it is “temperature”, light and heavy are the same. If you manifest one, you manifest the potential for the other. Always.

The same thing happens when you manifest competition, if you want to be a “winner” over others, you simultaneously manifest the existence of “loser” in your world. There is no duality in the divine mind. There is only what? Bliss, awareness, and consciousness.  Remove the competition awareness from your own mind, align with the divine mind, and experience the bliss of your win being everyone else’s good simultaneously. The dog eat dog world is unreal and you are not obligated to believe in it. You are forever free to label your good the same and equal to everyone else’s good as well, this aligns you with the divine mind.

Abraham Hicks calls this allowing your cork to float.

Everything that you can think of doing instead of manifesting polarity, instantly aligns you with your divine core consciousness. Bliss, love power. 

Every time that you want to assign a goodness or a badness to your one desire, remember the divine mind. Remember that you are also given freewill to forget your divine origin, and  to  unplug from your divine experience and replug into the illusion, and to fall for duality. 

The habit of unnecessary judgment, in the case of this video, self-judgment,  keeps the thing being judged alive, and conversely,  removing judgment from your mind, takes its lifeforce away, and it will no longer  be sustained IN YOUR WORLD. We are meant to have a garden of Eden experience, and as soon as you learn to say yes to that experience you will have it. 

Remember that God can only have this experience through us, and if you want God to have a good experience you have to give “him” that,  the good experience has to come through you. 

BUT if’ like in the Eastern spiritual tradition, we just pull the plug on our desires, and go straight for the meditative bliss on a mountain top, in other words, you throw away  desire to live, love, travel, laugh, and to build and create, and evolve and grow, you take the experience away from God. 


God can only give

We can only receive.

I see some of the most spiritual people that I know, (including in my weekly group), pass judgment or be self deprecating, so that is how pervasive this programming of blocking our natural growth is.

Divinity and the human is a dynamic creative duo, it is a true symbiotic relationship.

Allowing your cork to float means that you diffuse the resistance, it means to create a space of acceptance and allowance.  It means to align with the divine mind,  as opposed to the dual mind.  

If you have a desire, rather than to say to yourself that it is selfish, say that it is God’s way of speaking through you, and HIS desire to have this experience via your vessel.  

There is a method of making Gods’ desire your desire, and then he makes your desire into his desire, and basically, this is just a mind trick around our judgemental nature, because your desire is already one and the same as your divinity. 

The human body, can not create anything, can not give anything at all to consciousness, and consciousness can only give, but can not receive, in any other way, except through us. It is a true symbiotic relationship. 

Shiva and Shakti. 

Abraham and Sarah. 

Hippos and birds…

A perfect pair.

Consciousness and our human nature.

Florence Scovel Shinn says: 

“God sees man perfect, “created in his own image,” (imagination) and given “power and dominion.” This is the perfect idea of man, registered in Divine Mind, awaiting man’s recognition; for man can only be what he sees himself to be, and only attain what he sees himself attaining. “Nothing ever happens without an on-looker” is an ancient saying. Man sees first his failure or success, his joy or sorrow, before it swings into visibility from the scenes set in his own imagination. We have observed this in the mother picturing disease for her child, or a woman seeing success for her husband. 

Jesus Christ said, “And ye shall know the truth and the truth shall make you free.”

So, we see freedom (from all unhappy conditions) comes through knowledge—a knowledge of Spiritual Law. Obedience precedes authority, and the law obeys man when he obeys the law. 

The law of electricity must be obeyed before it becomes man’s servant. When handled ignorantly, it becomes man’s deadly foe. 

So with the laws of Mind! “

Divinity and the human is a dynamic creative duo, it is a true symbiotic relationship.

In the truly symbiotic relationship, both parties gain an advantage by sticking together.  This is “love thy neighbor as thyself in action” There is no “one against another” There IS NO ZERO SUM GAME. There is no ‘manifest your own good at the expense of another” UNLESS WE CREATE THAT. All negativity is a polarity that is manifested by mental belief in it. 

We are ALL instantly manifesting everything, and most people have absolutely no clue that they are instant manifesting, so they make no effort to control their intent. They think that their intent is hidden, but actually it is perfectly visible in your world around you. There are no secrets here, everything about you is on full display.

Does everyone you love leave you eventually?

That is your self rejection on display, and so on. 

Your intent is your creative force, your intent is all that consciousness has at its disposal. Your intent is your ONLY creative force, and no action is in fact creative in the truest sense.

Florence Scovel Shinn puts it like this:

“Many passages in the Bible state that the battle is God’s not man’s and that man is always to “stand still” and see the Salvation of the Lord. This indicates that the superconscious mind (or Christ within) is the department which fights man’s battle and relieves him of burdens. We see, therefore, that man violates law if he carries a burden, and a burden is an adverse thought or condition, and this thought or condition has its root in the subconscious. It seems almost impossible to make any headway directing the subconscious from the conscious, or reasoning mind, as the reasoning mind (the intellect) is limited in its conceptions, and filled with doubts and fears. How scientific it then is, to cast the burden upon the superconscious mind (or Christ within) where it is “made light,” or dissolved into its “native nothingness.” 

For example: A woman in urgent need of money, “made light” upon the Christ within, the superconscious, with the statement, “I cast this burden of lack on the Christ (within) and I go free to have plenty!” The belief in lack was her burden, and as she cast it upon the Superconscious with its belief of plenty, an avalanche of supply was the result.”

(She calls our divine mind “superconscious”.)

Now, there is a supply chain, that can only be followed in the correct order, and it goes as follows: 

Consciousness (superconsciousness, God, Divine mind) feeds your creative soul, and when it is unhampered, you get to live out your perfect dream regardless of what it is. 

As an example: Apparently Henry Ford , who was a middle aged man by the time  when he had his dream of seeing the car being mass produced and put into every man’s household, received A LOT of criticism. His own dad thought that he was an absolute fool and Henry could have talked himself out of his dream. But he “cast his burden on the Christ within”, he let his divine mind fuel his dream, and if he hadn’t, we could have been a horse and buggy society still. 

Don’t hamper your dream, let God’s pleasure run through you. 

Elon Musk is receiving an equal amount  of criticism as Henry Ford, and if you look around your world today, our cancel culture, and so on,  you can easily see just how brainwashed we are into believing in powerlessness and judgment.  The subconscious program seems real and true to the vast majority of people, still, even with the abundance of these teachings available. As religious guilt trips are removed they are swiftly replaced, at a rapid rate, with political cults, and with an equal or greater measure of judgment. But we can easily change our thinking if we want to.

This program is hard to overcome, because we believe that this is how we become good people. 

That, by complying to the judgment of society’s  current demands, we become good, but actually this is our own mirror reflecting our programmed thoughts back to us. 

Realizing WHO you are, you suddenly  understand, you feel and embody that you are one with your desire, one and the same, like one breathing moving body. This is why it is divinely given. The end result is a realization that we are ALL one, all 8 billion, the whole entire universe, but the path there begins at home in your heart. With realizing oneness with your desire, and that can be anything. 

There IS no judgment, if your desire is for wealth, then the realization that you are one with your wealth is your process, and if it is a specific person, it is the embodiment of them inside of you, in your heart, in your mind. It is realizing that THIS desire is alive in you, and that it is NOT separate from you. It IS God. This desire is  God within, and you are already one. 

The more we allow ourselves to follow this guiding light the closer we come to realizing total oneness, with all. It is the path. And this is why the path of killing off your desires as is done in Buddhism, is a side path that does not really work for most. 

For example, I am manifesting my desire to share my message with you guys, and I have to overcome a baseline personality of shyness. I manifested becoming healthier and a coach, starting in 2007, and in 2016 becoming a licensed acupuncturist, and connecting with clients at trauma centers, and addiction centers, and I had to overcome all these ideas of “that is not possible” on the path. 

But every day I wake up, and my desire leads me back to writing another blog post or video, or connecting with a client, and helping them overcome whatever insecurities that they have. 

I have walked this path myself,  I am walking it daily, so I know the path, I know it can look scary, difficult or even impossible, but I want you to know that if you have the dream it is not only possible, it is Divinely inspired, it is your path, already forged for you. “I go before you and make the crooked places straight”- Jesus

You can not change your desire, or your dreams, you can only refine your mental state. What you accomplish by trying to kill off your inner dreams is more and more apathy, and God’s wish will no longer be fulfilled through you. Your apathetic state will manifest all around you in dreary surroundings. 

You give your own creative power away when you judge your desires.

Florence Scovel Shinn says:

“Nothing on earth can resist an absolutely nonresistant person. The Chinese say that water is the most powerful element, because it is perfectly nonresistant. It can wear away a rock, and sweep all before it. Jesus Christ said, “Resist not evil,” for He knew in reality, there is no evil, therefore nothing to resist. 

Evil has come of man’s “vain imagination,” or a belief in two powers, good and evil. There is an old legend, that Adam and Eve ate of “Maya the Tree of Illusion,” and saw two powers instead of one power, God. Therefore, evil is a false law man has made for himself, through psychoma or soul sleep”

Now for my strange manifestation success.

I moved from my home country thirty years ago,  when I married. I have had family here, but over time, I have lost my in-laws and so on, through their passing. I started to wish for family here, just because it is such a good feeling to have family nearby.

Two or three years ago, in the most bizarre way, it turns out that an acquaintance that I have had since I moved, for almost thirty years, is sort of a cousin, her family, is my family on my dad’s side. It changed the quality of our acquaintance completely, and we both were completely speechless for a good long time. For SO LONG, we had no idea, and it wasn’t revealed until I started to manifest being closer to family!

The fact that you have a desire is proof that it can manifest for you, because it is divine in origin, and there are no limitations in the divine mind.

You are one with your desires.

You are one with your desires.

Make your will like God’s will and God will make his will like your will

Our purpose here, is to be like God

Many people are seeking for their purpose, and wondering why they are here perhaps, and whatever your direction your desire is calling you,  to do it it is in the direction of your purpose. 

Ultimately, everyone’s purpose is to “be like god” that is God’s intention, we are told that we are created in the image of God, who is all powerful, and all loving, and so on,  we are not created in the image of animals who operate on a system of instinct and survival, not on a system of desire.

You are created as one with your desire, your dreams and visions for yourself,  You are also  one with your INTERPRETATION of the desire, because you become according to your own interpretations. Your assumptions about yourself.  Your purpose is always to realize your divinity, that is everyone’s purpose, Know that the animals are created with survival instincts, and you are created with desires, hopes, and dreams.

Sometimes people hear that you “shouldn’t have any desires”  by way of Buddhism, a thoroughly misunderstood concept, with the misunderstanding dating as far back as the equally misunderstood concepts of the Bible, the birth of Christianity.   This adds an interpretation of guilt for having desires, on top of already feeling separate.  Adding guilt on top of our nature, is the opposite of manifesting in a sense, because manifesting is about adding love on top of everything, including offenses. Love covers all transgressions as they say. The reason for that saying is because that is the direction of realizing our divinity. Love covers all transgressions is the path to becoming like God.

The thing is, whether you should or shouldn’t have desire is irrelevant, because we all have different things that we want, that we hope for or dream of.

You have desires.

 End of story. 

 Everyone does.

We have desires for a reason, and that reason is to coax ourselves back to harmonious oneness.  We were created in the image of God not in the image of animals.  Some people call the harmonious realization of oneness,  enlightenment,  but I want to steer away from that term for our purposes, because people start chasing enlightenment as if it was just an experience to have, or a drug trip, and it is not.  

How are you already one with your desire and how is it equal to your purpose here? I want you to start thinking exactly like this: 

The root of this understanding is once again, oneness, and if oneness is all, then your desire can not be separate from you. If it is, then oneness does not exist. The idea of not desiring comes from the shift from before you have, to after you have, that is all.   Example:  First you are hungry, then you eat, after you eat you are not hungry. The unstruck sound concept is this, it is after the desire (of self realization) has been met.   After fulfillment there is a momentary satisfaction.  The reason why it is momentary is of course because we quickly desire something else. If you desire a career move after you have it you will develop another desire for yet something else.  An experience, more freedom, greater joy, or love in your life and so on.  It is our path forward in life, and our way of separating ourselves from our basic biological nature.  Our desires are an anchoring point, that connects us with our conscious awareness, it is like a light that is shining through, into our hearts and minds. Think, from now on,  of your desires as simultaneously your purpose, and as one with you

Neville Goddard’s teachings is the ”light” version of  esoteric, scientific, and spiritual teachings that date back thousands of years, and this  boiled down version that he teaches omits many things,  but the essence of one consciousness is there front and center.  

“The awareness of being as God is stated hundreds of times in the New Testament. To name but a few: “I AM the shepherd, I AM the door; I AM the resurrection and the life; I AM the way; I AM the Alpha and Omega; I AM the beginning and the end”; and again, “Whom do you say that I AM?” It is not stated, “I, Jesus, is the door. I, Jesus, is the way,” not is it said, “Whom do you say that I, Jesus, am? It is clearly stated, “I AM the way.”  The awareness of being is the door through which the manifestations of life pass into the world of form. Consciousness is the resurrecting power – resurrecting that which man is conscious of being.  Man is ever out-picturing that which he is conscious of being.  This is the truth that makes man free, for man is always self-imprisoned or self-freed. If you, the reader, will give up all of your former beliefs in a God apart from yourself, and claim God as your awareness of being – as Jesus and the prophets did – you will transform your world with the realization that,  “I and my father are one.” This statement,  “I and my father are one, but my father is greater than I, “ seems very confusing  but if interpreted in the light of what we have just said concerning the identity of God, you will find it very revealing.  Consciousness, being God, is as ‘father.’ The thing that you are conscious of being is the ‘son’ bearing witness of his ‘father.’ It is like the conceiver and its conceptions. The conceiver is ever greater than his conceptions yet ever remains one with his conception. For instance, before you are conscious of being man, you are first conscious of being.  Then you become conscious of being man.  Yet you remain as conceiver, greater than your conception – man.” 

– Neville Goddard, At Your Command

In the Bible,  we are told that we are ALL SONS OF GOD, so we can know that we are on equal footing with Jesus, and here Neville explains that we are also one and the same as “the father”, that in fact, the father is our own consciousness. 

One consciousness can be expressed as I AM God.  

This means that the entirety of creation exists potentially only, in  our consciousness, and then the question becomes, what do you WANT to express as part of your own experience. If all that is, is your mind expressing your consciousness and what you are conscious of being, why don’t you just choose to be conscious of being exactly what you want?  It is true that there are a lot of experiences  out there in the world, including  that which  we don’t desire,  and so why are those experiences happening? 

Because we accept them as true. 

We don’t have to accept anything as true that we are not fully happy with. Imagine that right now there are regimes in the world that you don’t live under, like communism, or fascism. These things are real, and yet you understand that you are not obligated to participate in that experience. This sifting and sorting of experiences that we like and don’t like is part of how we approve or deny our own world of circumstances.  Our free will gives us everything that we need to have in order  to deny unwanted life experiences, but they seem so real that we fall for the illusion.  Neville Goddard says to accept only what is “lovely”, meaning, give your attention only to what you desire, and put blinders on for everything else.

There is actually no other way for us to return to “the garden of eden”, meaning to live out an experience that is purely happy, pleasurable and easy. 

This sounds wrong to people who are taught to physically go out there and fight for justice, to change the world through action,  but the fight for justice goes nowhere if  we don’t change the contents of our conscious experience, if we don’t possess the knowledge of these spiritual/scientific concepts. We produce the conscious awareness of having to fight just the same as we possess the conscious awareness of being at peace. We are the ones who have the conscious awareness of being chosen, loved, adored and the happy star of your own life, just as much as we are the ones who have the conscious awareness of not being good enough, never chosen, and not worthy. 

An assumption that there is something that we are up against manifests circumstances that we have to fight.  A personality plays a huge role in this, and an ability to resist the temptation to fix everything will help, if you have this “fix the world” or “fix other people” or fix your specific person” personality.  Begin with putin on blinders to faults, and create an assumption that everything works out perfectly without your interference.  Think instead, that everytime you let things work out on their own, it fixes itself much faster.

In one way we are just a hologram out pictured by the one consciousness, and without that one consciousness we don’t even exist. Consciousness exists always, in undiminished form, and sometimes we interpret “becoming” more aware, or achieving greater levels of consciousness as something that is a distance away from us, or some time into the future. Like, if I meditate for 5 years, THEN I might stand a chance at higher consciousness but in actuality, it is always present in unchanging measure. There is one thing, one thing only that changes, and that is how our physical senses receive the light of this projector, or say, how we pick up on the sound of this  radio tower.  It is like consciousness is blowing air into a wooden flute, and we are the notes that emerge from the holes. We are inseparable from this air, this prana, and can not exist without it. We don’t exactly “become” enlightened” we already are, but our receivers (our senses) are filtering most of the content.  We are created this way to function as three dimensional beings, but other beings are created to function entirely differently, still, they too are sustained by the exact same consiousness. The third eye has the capacity to transmit a greater amount of this consciousness, but most people use their other senses so they don’t notice this. 

The light of consciousness shines on everyone alike, but our density of form varies, so we don’t all have the ability to notice this.  A human’s ability to experience consciousness is different from a tree, or a rock, or an angel, if you believe in those, but consciousness does not change.  Either way, the way a human being can become more aware is to follow their bliss. This does not require any particular understanding, it just means to follow your joy, follow your heart. Your heart’s desire. 

To follow your joy, you cannot simultaneously follow our urges to fix everything broken. 

The reason why people who don’t even try, get things that you drive so hard for, is that everything is already ours and the harder we try, we put a block into the natural flow. Sometimes when people are “manifesting” they are just creating delays. It is better to let go entirely. The intention technique works best for people who try too hard. Just exclaim your intention, and then fully let go.

“You cannot serve two masters or opposing states of consciousness at the same time.

Taking your attention from one state and placing it upon the other, you die to the one from which you have taken it and you live and express the one with which you are united.

Man cannot see how it would be possible to express that which he desires to be by so simple a law as acquiring the consciousness of the thing desired.” -Neville Goddaadr

How do you bridge this gap of continuously falling for the illusion, to experiencing the bliss, power, love and clarity of oneness?  You actually have an unbreakable  core bond with God, with this oneness, even if you are not able to experience this oneness at this time, and that core bond reveals itself in the form of your desires. It is the light of consciousness shining through, grab on to that light, it will take you there.  The light is shining on your joy, your relief, your acceptance or whatever emotion is a little bit better than where you are at the moment, it is like road signs have been put up for you to follow.

So in summary, you do NOT have to raise your consciousness, it is already raised. You just have to move in the direction of feeling better. 

You can have a lot of material luxury or physical wealth, if you can have nothing, it has absolutely nothing to do with how the light of consciousness is expressed through you.  Your greatest joy is a rope in the darkness.  The fact that your greatest joy is your transcendence. There is no amount of negativity in you, no amount of anxiety or fear that can block out the light of consciousness, it is still penetrating to every cell, every neuron, and every fiber of your being. If we were totally open to this light immediately from the place where you are standing it might feel like an electric shock or an epileptic seizure. 

In the Bible Abraham is symbolizing the light of consciousness, and his wife Sarah symbolizes the concentration of the physical form that receives the light.The two coexist, always. 

 Years ago, I was listening to my pastor give a sermon and he told a story of the monkey and the jar trap. He illustrated what he saw that people  experienced when he was working in addiction treatment facilities, but he also explained that this is what happens when we can’t  “let go and let God”, as the saying goes. This is the story:


 In Southeast Asia many years ago someone developed an ingenious method to catch monkeys alive and unharmed. The “Monkey Trap” they developed was very simple. The hunter would take a pot with a wide bottom and narrow opening and bury the pot in the ground to where the opening of the jar was just above the ground. In the jar the hunter would place a piece of fruit or nuts, and curiosity or hunger would attract the monkey to reach inside. The monkey reaches down into the narrow opening of the jar to grab hold of the treat, and as the monkey attempts to extract the treat from the jar, he finds that his fist full of food will not fit through the narrow opening! The monkey, excited and frustrated, may scream out as he continues to hold on to his food… but he will refuse to let go of it. The monkey sees the hunter approaching but instead of letting go of the food the monkey holds on tighter and tries harder to dislodge its arm and fist of food from the jar. Would you believe that sometimes people act just like those monkeys? People behave this way too, when we don’t believe that we are worthy of our desires, we hold on tightly when letting go would save us.   The freedom is already true for the monkey, but he holds onto the thing that will keep him trapped. We are the same, we hold on to what keeps us trapped in separation, all the while, freedom is right there.

Holding on tightly to our beliefs in potential loss, prevents our desires if from willingly entering our life, because the identity of the version of you that has the desire, is different from the identity of the version of you that thinks that you don’t have it so you have to chase it, or  hunt it down,  and put your foot on the neck of your desire and so on.  You don’t need to do anything, except consider it natural and normal that you should have what you now desire.  The energy of chasing or holding on is very opposite of the energy of simply  receiving or having.

You are the star of this show

You came here for the sole purpose of creating your best experience, one that pleases you to no end. You are not here to pay a debt, to suffer or to pay your karma, all of that is nonsense taught by people who misunderstand spirituality. You are here to overcome all that. Karma is nothing other than what we call subconscious programming, and overcoming our autopilot program is exactly what LOA is. Using our free will to create, rather than unconsciously creating as if on  autopilot.  

Whatever unconscious program we operate on before we learn about LOA is like a tunnel, and we have tunnel vision, we can see nothing else, but whether that tunnel is the tunnel of a villain or a hero, or the tunnel of a pacifist or a dictator is irrelevant from the perspective of oneness, because we are here to overcome false beliefs, regardless of what the false beliefs are.   

Every breath that you take is supporting the life your own body, not somebody else’s body, every beat of your heart is  just for you,  if your identity is that of a person who has to pay some mysterious debt until you are good enough and worthy it is as if you believed that your breath and your heartbeats supports somebody else’s body, like your neighbors.

You are here for your own experience, and there isn’t a single thing that you have to do to become worthy, because you already are worthy. You don’t have to pay a karmic debt for your breath to be absorbed by your lungs, or for your heart to beat. Rather, you have to overcome the tunnel vision of beliefs that keep you in a state of separation.  The idea of unworthiness is as flawed as if I told you that you have to pay before your heart will beat its next beat. 

The reason why it seems like there is something that you have to do before you get your desires is because you have taken on an identity of someone who is not worthy, or chosen, or good enough and the matching vibration is an experience that reveals that life experience of rejection. 

Tunnelvision. Whatever reality tunnel you live in, it is not truth, as one consciousness, it is an artificial reality that creates further belief in separateness. 

If you want to become one with your desire you have to decide that you are the most important person in your life, that is a given, from the fact that you are here living and breathing. By definition, nothing about you sustains the life of another, let’s say your neighbor, your kidney is not cleaning the body of your neighbor, just you. You are the one who is producing this show, nobody else. 

If you are struggling with a pervasive sense of unworthiness, think about your life and notice areas where you are chosen. If you have friends, nobody is forcing them to be your friend, if you had a boyfriend or girlfriend before, nobody forced them to be with you, they woke up every day of your relationship, and chose you again, and if you have a job, that employer chose you, nobody forced them to choose you. Find examples of where you are chosen, and feel the relief of noticing that these people and situations chose you, out of their free will. 

 Think of your breath, your breath is choosing you every moment. It chooses you, you don’t choose it. You might have got chosen by a pet, if you adopted a stray or went to the pound. You are actually chosen to have every one of your desires, and you just have to say yes to a desire.

 Like the adopted pet, you just have to say yes for you to take it home with you, or the friend.  .All your desires are just one yes away, and you don’t have to force the desire into your life, it is already yours, if you say yes.

You are created by a perfectionist, God, he did not make any mistakes when you were made, and you are a perfect match for your desired career, or for the love that you are dreaming of. Whatever it is, you are already a perfect match for your desire, and it is just you who can push it away for as long as you think that you have to wrestle it to the ground for some reason. Be still and become magnetic to  what is already meant for you.

Your desires ARE specifically yours

There is a story in the Bible of Isaac,  and of how his wife was manifested, a specific wife, not just any wife. She had to fulfill many  important requirements, and why not, we all have our own specifics that we feel are essential.  She would have to leave her own home country, and join him in his, and  more, she had to be  a distant relative of Isaac’s, this sounds weird to us, but this was to keep the Jewish lineage intact, so she had to be a relative, but distant enough that it wasn’t a problem, and so she had to be from a specific country, but couldn’t genetically be from that country, and she had to leave and live with him, so, to find the perfect wife, a highly-trusted servant was  sent  to travel all the way to the specific country, to their distant relatives, and find a wife there for Isaac.  I’m not going to read the story to you,  this chapter is the longest in the book of Genesis,  and is devoted to a description of the process of finding Isaac’s wife, a specific person. Clearly, being specific is important.  Furthermore, the request was that the servant should recognize the right person by way of divine signs. 

You can throw in anything that is right for you into your manifestation, after all, this is your life we are talking about, why would you NOT make your manifestations tailor made for you, and why would you not make the direction of your desires specifically and easily recognizable as yours when you find them?   I only wish all people were taught that this is inherently our birthright, to live as authentically as we can, and to not doubt in our hearts desire.  

Some things take a long time to manifest

It is easy to get discouraged when things take a long time, especially if you have watched a lot of videos that tell you that everything should manifest instantly or something is wrong with you. Everything has its own appointed hour, and there is no reason to get discouraged if you have manifested time delay.

The story of Joseph and his dreams and destiny  illustrate how  time delays, and the bridge of events is of no importance.

In this case Joseph had prophetic dreams at night, one example of his dreams were as follows:   

We (Him and his brothers who hated him out of jealousy) were binding sheaves of grain out in the field when suddenly my sheaf rose and stood upright, while your sheaves gathered around mine and bowed down to it.” 

 Now, for our purposes,  night dreams have the same meaning as the desires within you, namely, whatever interpretation you give it.  This  story about Joseph and his jealous brothers also explains how a “mirror maker”  functions in our life.

A mirror maker is anyone outside of us who we choose to believe in, it could be our circumstances or it could be a psychic or a religious leader, basically anything that we allow to shape our reality outside of ourselves.  In Joseph’s case it was his jealous brothers that helped to create the meanings for  Joseph.

Joseph’s brothers were crazy jealous of him, and every time Joseph told them of his dreams they got more and more jealous, since they interpreted the dreams to mean that Joseph would rule over them.  

In reality we have a choice of how to interpret and declare meaning, we have the power to declare any meaning we want both to dreams that we have at night, and to the dreams that are our hearts desire. We can accept or deny anything outside of ourselves.

The meaning-making rests in the hands of our own minds

When Joseph told them about his dream they were jealous and scared that he would rule over them as a king, they created this reality both for themselves, and for Joseph. Eventually they sold him to Egyptians who were traveling through, and then told their father that Joseph had been attacked and eaten by an animal. Eventually,  Joseph was sold again, this time to Potiphar, one of the Pharaoh’s officials, the captain of the guard.  Long story short, Potiphar’s wife tried unsuccessfully to seduce Joseph, and after false accusations were leveled at Joseph he was imprisoned.  Things just seem to get WORSE AND WORSE for Joseph. 

But, due to his ability to interpret Pharaoh’s dream he was made governor of Egypt, and he wisely rationed the country’s produce in preparation for a time of famine. In other words, the whole country did not starve to death because of him. During the famine his brothers  came to Egypt to plead with Joseph for supplies. They did not recognise him but after he was satisfied that they had changed their ways,  he revealed who he was to them, and then Joseph invited his father and brothers to come and settle in Egypt. 

Throughout this whole drama, Joseph is unfazed and completely aligned with his power, his love, and his clarity.  Everyone else is freaking out or reacting to circumstance, Joseph is the only one who is in his power. Chances are you will never face circumstances on that level of this story, but regardless, the ability to stay calm, cool and collected through a particularly dark seeming bridge of events separates the wheat from the chaff. 

How long did it take for Joseph to rule? At least a decade, maybe more. If it is your desire, it is worth it.

A couple more important points are revealed in the above story:

  1. Universe  is always at work to produce the fulfillment of your heart’s desire, your purpose, it is ALWAYS at work, even when it seems the opposite, and if you trust it even through the worst bridge of events, it comes as a pretty straight forward path, should you choose to rise above every circumstance with an attitude of gratitude. Love covers all transgressions.
  1. Even if other people seem to intend your demise, it will still work out perfectly for you, for your benefit, don’t get hung up on the details or the ill will of circumstances, it is STILL meant for your success. It might look like an evil plan, but it is leading you straight to your greatest good.
  1. God’s desire for us is identical to our own dream, because we are one consciousness, and even if we are totally unconscious or unawakened, we have access to our divinity by way of the dream we have for our life.  It is an unstoppable dream, which will be manifested by  grace, independent of circumstances, unless of course, we choose to become apathetic to our own dream. Make God’s will your will, and God will make your will his will, because it is one and the same, you are God.

I am God

This statement is part and parcel of the Law of Assumption, but it is not always so easy to grasp, and if you can’t don’t worry,  it is a process, and you don’t have to understand this for “it” to work. You might not know exactly how your microwave oven works, but you still can put cold food in there and turn the dial and get hot food to come out, and the Law works the same. It works even if you don’t understand it, and you are one with your desire even if you don’t understand how. 

 Our MINDS can’t always understand everything. We make the mistake of thinking that it can figure everything out, and that it is relevant to our manifestation, but it isn’t. Even the most brilliant mind can’t MAKE a miracle. Creation, at its most minute detail is an atomic fusion, and THIS we don’t have to do.   The mind is dual, it is a function of the biological body, and as such it is not capable of fully understanding the final piece of the puzzle anymore, say, an eye can see itself. AND  it doesn’t have to.

The ONE consciousness is the observer in you, and it is also the observer of the universe. It is THE ONE observer, in all, there is ONLY one consciousness.

“All things, when they are admitted, are made manifest by the light: for everything that is made manifest is light. [Ephesians 5:13] THE “LIGHT” is consciousness. Consciousness is one, manifesting in legions of forms or levels of consciousness.” – Neville Goddard

“Causes do not put the nature into motion, only the removal of obstacles takes place through them.” – Swami Veda Bharati

This means that there is nothing that you, yourself, can truly do, except for removing the obstacles that your mind creates. It is like preparatory work.  Once that is done, consciousness flows.  THE “LIGHT” is consciousness. Consciousness is one, manifesting in legions of forms or levels of consciousness.” as Nevlle said… Understand that it isn’t   you who have to flow the consciousness, it is already flowing, our disbelief is the obstacle, our doubts are the obstacle, our ruminating thoughts are the obstacle, our problem solving is even the obstacle. And why is that? Because there is no problem, and insisting on solving the problem puts the obstacle there. The problem was already solved. I express this as “doersip”, let go of doership.

  • Suppose that there is one.
  • One creator.
  • One consciousness.
  • And that is you.

We misjudge the divinity of all things that we think of as bad, as if some things were excluded from this law of one, and so this judgment upholds the existence of exactly everything that we judge. Remove your judgment, give a blessing and gratitude, and watch the so-called problem dissolve.

When we judge our desires as bad, or when we accept others’ judgment of us and our desires, or  we judge others’ desires as lesser than ours, or too  materialistic, or too shallow, or even evil, we uphold the manifestation of exactly that.

Blessing everything that we judge or fear is a big step for most  humans,  it seems counterintuitive, but eventually, a step that everyone will learn how to  take.   For example,  If Joseph’s brothers had not acted the way they did, then Joseph’s dream would not have come true, or it would have found a different roundabout way of fulfilling itself. Joseph continued to bless his brothers and to give gratitude throughout his decades-long drama.   When so-called evil happens to you,  do you thank the creator/God/Consciousness/Universe for advancing you towards your dream or do you curse the events, do you go into an immediate state of anxiety or anger?

Our desires are part and parcel of THE ONE CONSCIOUSNESS.

Neville Goddard talks about the realization of the Christ Within, which he calls the human imagination.   

“Jesus Christ is not a man! He is not a person, but God’s plan of redemption which must be discovered and understood. To enter this world one must wear a body of flesh and blood; yet we are told that flesh and blood cannot enter the kingdom of heaven. It takes a spiritual body to enter that kingdom and my words are spirit! If I tell you a story that many in this audience have experienced, and you accept it, you too will experience the truth that will set you free. No man can set you free. This man called Neville is simply an agent expressing truth. It is not good enough for you to just understand it. You must believe – not in Neville – but in the truth he is expressing from this platform and his books. If I lie and you believe what I say then you can’t prove it and will remain a slave. And oh, the pain that is promised to the teacher who dares to lie and mislead those who trust him. (Read it in the Book of James.)

I am telling you what I have experienced, so I can’t lie. Jesus Christ, God’s story of salvation, has been fulfilled in me. I have experienced the birth; the discovery of God 

The majority of the people of the world will not accept my story, for they want a person on the outside as their personal savior. “ – Neville Goddard

“To know yourself is the only thing that you need to manifest anything. “To attempt to change circumstances before you change your imaginal activity, is to struggle against the very nature of things. There can be no outer change until there is first an imaginal change. Everything you do, unaccompanied by an imaginal change, is but futile readjustment of surfaces.” – Neville Goddard  

The only thing that differs between us all, between our particular desires,  is really just the level of awareness, or our amount of self-understanding that we have reached.  In reality, that is the only thing that varies; Our level of conscious awareness, and to what degree we understand ourselves. 

Our imaginal activity is generated by our interpretations of our desires. If you want love, but your interpretation of this is negative, that you are not good enough right now because you are overweight for example, then you are automatically imagining that you won’t get what you desire. An inner readjustment of your interpretation is the fastest way to open up the floodgates of your desires. 

Every individual  has the capacity to see the “return of the Christ.   Can you realize your own Christ within? The path is toward your desire, and away from duality of the mind, a continuous self correction. Your mind throws in doubt, and you self correct. 

We are created in God’s image, so we are distinctly different from other species, we are  not created in the image of animals.  We are like God, and our will happens to be identical to God’s will, but initially we identify as one of the animals, that is, a biological creature, just flesh and blood.  We are created in the image of God but  before we act like God and not like an animal,  we have to learn how to  identify as divine, and not as a mere biological being.

Becoming GOD

The way we become God, is by using our free will to align our will with God’s will, (to align with our consciousness)  This is easy, but we are not taught about this,  before we hear about this this   we are more or less aligned with biology, and are driven by our animalistic desires.  We also strongly identify with our bodies and our  minds, and we believe that we can do things on our own. 

The day that we begin to dentify with the observing consciousness within, we understand that there is not one single thing that we CAN do, that all things are done by God, by THE ONE CONSCIOUSNESS, and our only accomplishments when we try to interfere is a delay in God’s work. In short, we push miracles away the more we try to do on our own. 

Every time you inhale, oxygen molecules enter your lungs, and every oxygen molecule reaches the walls of the lungs, and gets picked up by four  iron atoms in the blood vessels, and forms hemoglobin molecules.  This  is the breath, the prana, it is your life. The molecular exchange gives you life a little bit longer.  Do you think that you have to MAKE this happen?  CAN you make this happen?  Just like you can do nothing to make this happen, there is not a single thing in this universe that you can make happen, on a molecular level.   WE are not the doers, and  we are not here to be problem solvers,  we are not the molecule exchangers and we can just relax and let the next breath come.  We  can just focus on the solution, because the problems are already solved. We are here to learn how to  trust that the problems are solved and to dwell in pleasure of the fulfillment of our dreams.   You do not have to be anxious, fearful or judgemental of the oxygen uptake of your blood, and you don’t have to be anxious about the perfect wellbeing of your life.

In so many ways, all ancient scriptures, and newer ones too, try to tell us to leave our cares to God, (and feel free to give the name to God that works for you, like consciousness or the universe.)  The trouble is that we don’t let go of trying to solve our problems, so we don’t let the solution come in,   we try, but most often we don’t, not fully let go, and as long as we keep on trying God can not work his miracle.

Imagine that you are a little child and you have a desire for something, and your mother knows, because she knows you and she is going to give you what you want, because she loves you. You desire ice cream, and there is one waiting for you in the freezer. Your mom has planned all along to give you the ice cream, after you are done with your dinner, this is why she bought the ice cream in the first place, but you are trying in all your childish ways to get the ice cream, you are begging her please please please, and you are even trying to sneak to the freezer on your own, to to take it. In your childish ways you are just hampering your mothers work. She is cooking your dinner, but now she is interrupted with your constant begging, and then she has to prevent you from getting into the freezer on your own. All of your actions are simply delaying your ice cream. She was going to give you your desire all along, and you will still get it, but now it’s taking a little bit longer, all because of your actions.   God is waiting to give you everything that you came here for, but you are out there on your own, thinking that you have to get your desires by hard work, or steal it like a thief in the night.   It is yours, and it was always yours, if you can chill and let God deliver it, you will be not only fulfilled, but also comforted that you are so safe, in God’s loving care.   Imagine yourself as a little toddler who has accepted that his mothers loves him through and through, and that he can comfortably wait for the ice cream, and that he can eat his dinner, and BE SURE that ice cream comes. 


Trust and surrender. 

When you are finally able to put absolute blind trust in God, you will be given everything because You are one with your desires. Make your will like God’s will and God will make his will like your will.

Make your will like your mothers will and you will have the ice cream. Her will is identical to your will, because she loves you.

When you childishly have to have things in the way that you want, you delay God’s work, you delay your manifestation. He will do it in his way, and it is alway the perfect way. 

Or imagine that you are sick and you go to the doctor, but once you are there you tell the doctor what you want your cure to be

You have to choose, either you do the path your way, or you do the path God’s way. Your will is God’s will and God’s will is your will, because you are one and the same, but God’s way is the best path there.  Don’t be anxious and fearful, the only one who doesn’t know the how is you.  The ONE CONSCIOUSNESS has a perfect path already, but you  have to chose to close your eyes to your own path and TRUST AND SURRENDER.  BLINDLY.   If you are trusting in your human power, or worse, in other people, yes, you can fail and fail again, but let go, and trust, God’s path can not fail. Remember that you don’t have to finagle the molecule exchange in your lung walls, you blindly trust that it will happen.

Not a single thinker or philosopher has ever created a miracle, there is no mind that is so brilliant that it can create the grace that is equal to receiving what you are not worthy of, only God/universe  can do this.  You can try to figure things out,  and to manipulate and finagle things into place, but all you can accomplish is the cause and effect of the natural world, only God can cause Grace. This is an undeserved gift of love, and we are all undeserving, but that means nothing.   When you let yourself create your dream in your heart and mind, and  you blindly trust that the way there is already created, you can finally abandon your anxious plotting behind, and just open your eyes to the God given path as it opens up for you. Walk that path, this is a path that Neville calls the bridge of events. YOU DON’T KNOW WHAT THIS LOOKS LIKE. It can look like the wrong path to you. Walk with confidence and keep thanking God for fulfilling your desires.

Neville talks about this undeserved gift of the fulfillment of our desires in his Grace vs Law lecture:

“[And these three parts mark the great gift], called in the Bible “grace,” an unearned, unmerited gift. No one in this world is good enough to earn it; therefore, all will get it. God actually expresses to man a mercy with which man is incapable with his conscience of ever judging himself as worthy of redeeming. No man in this world with conscience and memory could ever judge himself as merciful as God does” – Neville Goddard 

The time that you have spent judging yourself or feeling unworthy can end here and now, because you manifest regardless. If you are feeling unworthy, you can just accept that and say to yourself that manifestation is above that, and it will in no way affect anything, and that on a large scale we are all unworthy anyway.

Neville also talks about the delay that we cause when we choose to put our trust in our own abilities rather than praying, or placing our trust in being in God, or universe remembering that it delivers every time:

“Now we are told that we could delay it. That’s why I find it difficult to believe that. But still it’s scripture; the 4th chapter of the Book of Hebrews, “And the good news preached unto us was also preached unto them; but it did not benefit them, because it was not mixed with faith in the hearer.” Now tonight some of you could reject it, and that may appear on the surface to delay your call and it may—I do not know. I have no assurance that you could delay it. But it would appear that rejection on the part of one because he heard it but did not accept it because it didn’t make sense to him, therefore, he rejected it. And I tell you, those who reject it—and maybe by your rejection, you delay your call—eventually you’re going to be called. Because he’ll put you through all the paces of the world until finally you have no power to reject the story when you hear it.” – Neville Goddard

Remember the example of the mother, who always intended to give her child exactly what he wanted, he just put her through extra work before she is able to give it to him, and he did this by his own doubt that his mother was already planning on giving him ice cream. 

When you are able to say no to the illusion.  When you are able to reject your own doubt and place your trust in the ONE CONSCIOUSNESS it is like you unlock another level of a video game.  Your flow opens up, and you are immediately leveled, or  up elevated to a new consciousness level, and this light of consciousness is revealed to you in a greater way. More trust is received by you, and new desires form, now they are a little more altruistic than before, you might have started to see others as yourself, or close to it. Everytime you trust in the love of the creator, you level up. This is equal to what people call a quantum jump. But at now time are you so far removed from the light of the ONE CONSCIOUSNESS that you can not see a little tiny sparkle of light shining through in the form of a desire, a wish, a hope, or a dream.  

“Divine imagining and human imagining are not two powers at all, rather one. The valid distinction which exists between the seeming two lies not in the substance with which they operate but in the degree of intensity of the operant power itself.” – Neville Goddard

You understand this when you have shifted states at least once, and gone from one version of yourself and your world to another. The trust increases every time, and the intensity with which you dare to dream without casting doubts increases.  Creating the imaginal scene, completely free of doubts or questions of how this could possibly come to pass, without any fear of disappointment increases every time you have a success story of your own.

“Everything in the world owes its character to imagination on one of its various levels. “Objective reality”, writes Fichte, “is solely produced through imagination”. Objects seem so independent of our perception of them that we [tend]  to forget that they owe their origin to imagination.” – Neville Goddard

You are one with your desire, your dreams and your visions of yourself, and you are one with your INTERPRETATION of your desires.   Your purpose is to realize your divinity, so also your oneness with all, and we accomplish this by daring to believe in our dream.

The little kid who causes trouble before he gets his ice cream is imagining all the ways in which he can get the ice cream, he imagines if he cries and begs he might get it, he imagines if he sneaks to the freezer he’ll get it. He imagines that he has to take it or he won’t get it.  At the end of the day, he was creating out of his imagination but he also put the obstacles into place just as much as the ice cream itself.  The ice cream was his true desire, but he also imagined all the trouble he could go through to get it.  This is how we are with our GOD GIVEN desires. We imagine that we are not worthy, we imagine less than what we actually desire just because we are afraid to commit to our real desire.  

We want a career that is satisfying, fulfilling, rewarding and pays well for less hours worked, BUT instead we imagine how we can make the next buck, so rather than imagining the fulfillment of our desire we  imagine going to endless interviews, or we imagine NOT EVEN getting the interviews.  Sound familiar? And we do this for jobs we don’t even want! 

Imagination creates, but your desire is already a given.   Skip imagining the trouble.   Go straight to deliberately imagining nothing but the fulfillment of your desire, because there is not one single thing that you can do to become deserving or worthy.   Like Neville said, we are all unworthy but in God’s eyes he just loves to give to us ANYWAY.  

“Imagining the wish fulfilled brings about a union with that state, and during that union you behave in keeping with your imaginal change. This shows you that an imaginal change will result in a change of behavior.”

“However, your ordinary imaginal alterations as you pass from one state to another are not transformations because each of them is so rapidly succeeded by another in the reverse direction. But whenever one state grows so stable as to become your constant mood, your habitual attitude, then that habitual state defines your character and is a true transformation.

How do you do it? Self-abandonment! That is the secret. You must abandon yourself mentally to your wish fulfilled in your love for that state, and in so doing, live in the new state and no more in the old state.

You can’t commit yourself to what you do not love, so the secret of self-commission is faith — plus love.” – Neville Goddard

Our journey through the manifest world of desires towards  more spiritual desires is natural. Even when the Buddha left his wife and new born son to go and find enlightenment it he did so because of a desire, nothing else, no other reason. Our desires take us all the way to union with our consciousness. Without this drive we would not be born.  Everytime we release resistance, another level of consciousness is  revealed.  

Imagine better than the best you know.” – Neville Goddard

All that there is, is generated from consciousness, so if you look out into the world, or you flip through the news, and you wonder how the world can be in such a state, look no further than your own imagination.

 Isaac manifested his specific wife, and the Buddha his enlightenment, all desires are equal.

You are every word within yourself. 

We  create separation, loss and victimization within our minds, and  putting an end to this can only begin with our own self realization, and observing how our desires are made and fulfilled is part of our divine process, it is the very first paragraph of The Tao, to understand how we are one with our own creation, and how to detach from the dependence on the creation.   

The projection of our minds,  makes up the illusory world, and then we believe it to be real.  There is no out there that is separate from their own creation, it is all produced from the inside of us. Our job is to make the outside like the inside, to become like God.

Blessing brings blessings, and judgment keeps blessings away. 

You are one with the creator and the creation, the struggle is made up in our imagination. 

Still, surrendering is mysterious and many people don’t know how to actually go about this final step, and blind trust in the miracles of God is the way.    



 If you are trusting in your human power, yes of course,  you can fail  but let go, and trust, God’s path can not fail.  

Remember that you don’t have to finagle the molecule exchange in your lung walls, you blindly trust that it will happen. 

Surrender is blindly trusting.

 No desire is exempt from this law. It is yours, there is nothing you  can do to have or to prevent it, you can only delay by your own efforts.

Manifesting deeper love by USING OPPOSITE circumstances | Specific Person |

Ignore 3D like THIS! Manifest your specific person | You put your obstacles there by yourself

Let’s get serious about this specific person LOA stuff, there are so many different ideas floating around, but everything boils down to the simple law of assumption. 

If you have been practicing a vibration of irritation, or boredom, or jealousy, or or heart ache, or anything other than love, then this is what is showing up for you, not the other way around.

It is like Wayne Dyer said, “You’ll see it when you believe it” sort of, but the truth is that you don’t even have to believe, you just have to stop practicing the vibration of disbelief! But when this is applied toward love then there is ONLY one thing that is complete love, and that is unconditional love. We don’t love that way, at least it is extremely rare, nor do we have to. But because we don’t  know how to love, we create obstacles.

We experience the opposite of love here in this physical body because this an experience of duality, and without opposites there is no duality, there is unity, oneness.  There is no way to experience life without duality so without the opposite of love there is no love it is natural.  

Life is also natural, that is, it is of the natural world, consciousness in unity and it is undivided. Oneness. But natural life builds towards unity by using duality, and this is also how you can practice devotion to one God and still gain closeness to consciousness-god-I-Am.  There are increasing steps of getting a little closer and a little closer to oneness, and understanding that the obstacles that you face are not a problem will help you manifest greater love everytime there is a problem.

I have said before that we place our own obstacles in our own way for our own benefit, but not so that we can learn a lesson, but rather so that we get closer to ourselves. This is more true in love than most other areas, because we go into relationships absolutely unequipped for love. We are not ready for the criticism, the anger, the fights, the rejections and all these areas where we are not set up to handle love we ruin it. Everything negative is meant to be overcome with love, but we don’t know how to practice this. We truly hardly know how to choose the right partner, so it is not surprising that once we are in a relationship we destroy what was originally a wonderful romance. 

We also think that our problems are caused by the faults of the other person, but actually the faults of the other person is our manifestation and it is also our own call for ourselves to generate love from within rather than demanding it from our shadow world, or mirror world.  If you have picked a partner who is able to work through difficulties with you, great, but if you have not, then you can manifest greater love just by your own understanding of how to transcend circumstances and overcome fights. 

Circumstances are not bad, and fights are not bad. This belief that something has gone wrong just because something seems opposite is just causing unnecessary anxiety, or even panic if you ask me because this is how I  have felt in the past. Panic, because there was a fight, panic because they did something that i couldn’t predict, or that  made me feel insecure, or even jealous.  This is just an indication that we are, obviously not, practicing unconditional love yet, and why would we be, it takes a great deal of understanding of the law of assumption to even begin to understand the REASON for practicing unconditional love. If you are new to LOA it might sound like I am telling you to be a doormat, and I am not, I am showing you the path to practicing the corrected vibration.  If you experience any negativity, it is because you have practiced feeling a vibration that is its match, and so somehow, this shows up in life, and very commonly in our relationships. Congratulations because now you can see it, and now you can practice what real love feels like. Does it feel scary?  Don’t worry, this practice can’t hurt you.

The goal in love can not be to not have any issues, if it is then you are preventing your partner from being themselves, and vice versa. So loving each other through fights is just perfect practice to becoming more loving.  

Even after you have a stabilized relationship without much fighting, you still need to continue to use the growth of the relationship to hone in on your unconditional love skill, and this is a  practice of scheduling in the planned fights and this is what keeps the spark alive.

You know how great make up sex is, well, you don’t have to have a fight or a break up to have great make up sex, but you do have to keep rising above your irritation, or your jealousy,  your criticism, your anger and so on. Remember NOTHING has gone wrong just because you hit a snag, rather, everything has gone right soo rejoice instead of laying on the couch crying! You have all the manifestational power in your life, so don’t suddenly fall for the reflection, and start believing that the reflection has the power. 

Remember again, this is not the same as being a doormat.

 To continue to deepen and strengthen your relationship with your sp, your differences can’t just go fully ignored, like all  peace, love and happiness, in fact the most spiritually evolved couples on the planet might not even be fully able to do that without suppressing their emotions. Suppressing emotions creates enormous resistance and resistance  creates excess energy that causes chaos, but scheduling in your disagreements for a specific time every week creates stability and a peaceful playing field for both people to grow. Suppressing emotions is basically just a way to gaslight yourself, and you might be prone to doing that already, a lot of people are, but don’t misunderstand the basic goal of transcending circumstances. You are not going to  do this with an ulterior motive, and you are not doing this to keep the peace, this is the exact opposite. You will actually address every problem that you perceive as a problem, but in a very different way, the way that nobody taught us. The way that generates more and more closeness, and a greater and greater capacity for real love.

Keep all fights on a schedule, and don’t indulge in spontaneous spur of the moment arguments, that leads to chaos and resentment, and when you do have your scheduled fight, it is a reasonable civil fight, and when time is up, then time is up, and you have to go back to being peacekeepers again. If you don’t do this and you try to force that immense infatuation feeling to be the only feeling that is fostered in the relationship, you will eventually have swung that pendulum as far as it can go, and it will swing back by itself, without you being prepared for it. You will see people who teach or coach this kind of love relationship, often experience some backsliding. The backsliding is fine, it is not an indication that anything has gone wrong, like I already said, everything has gone right but it is an unnecessary instability. Most people don’t want that level of instability in their relationships, so schedule your fights even if you believe that you are perfect at unconditional love, because I bet you, unless you are the Buddha, Paramahansa Yogananda or Guru Ma or someone, you are not loving as unconditionally as you think, and that is normal. That is nature’s way. 

Some people kill off their emotions and live utterly apathetic, in order to keep the peace, but this is definitely not what is meant by transcending circumstances. I think that it is an easy misconception to make, but you know in your heart if you have built a wall around it to keep it safe. The scheduled fights would help an apathetic person to come out of their safe shell again.

We are utterly unprepared for the feelings that come up in love, because we believe that it is SUPPOSED to be only love and nothing else, but now you know, it is supposed to be everything else too. If it came up, it was meant to be for you.

Some day, we will all be Buddhas, and at that point we will have learned to transcend even the worst of the worst, just like Buddha, just like Jesus, but for now, let’s focus on the smaller offenses that we are currently capable of transcending. Oh and don’t let people on the spiritual path guilt trip you into peace, love and understanding without giving space to your emotions. This is spiritual gaslighting, and that is not equal to manifesting love. 

Your vibrational alignment happens when you stop fighting within yourself, when you stop denying yourself and when you release resistance that comes from not accepting the emotions that you have. 

The magic is  to keep a balanced opposite in the world of manifestation, or it will swing back on its own. People who experience a happy relationship for life all know how to do this innately, but everyone else thinks that everything has gone wrong when you suddenly come upon a natural feeling of all the opposites of love. 

Let’s look at what some couples who were married for decades had to say about the secret ingredient, but before we get into what you should do in your relationship, let’s take a look at what people who are serial divorcers  all say not to do:

Don’t ever be with someone because someone else pressured you to. I got married the first time because I was raised Catholic and that’s what you were supposed to do. Wrong. I got married the second time because I was miserable and lonely and thought having a loving wife would fix everything for me. Also wrong. Took me three tries to figure out what should have been obvious from the beginning, the only reason you should ever be with the person you’re with is because you simply love being around them. It really is that simple.

Basically the most common reason for why someone felt that they were with the wrong person and their marriage failed was  “being with the person for the wrong reasons.”

Some of these wrong reasons included:

  1. Pressure from friends and family
  2. Feeling like a “loser” because they were single and settling for the first person that came along 
  3. Being together for image—because the relationship looked good on paper (or in photos), not because the two people actually admired each other. (shallow)
  4. Being young and naive and hopelessly in love and thinking that love would solve everything.
  5.  Being in a relationship to “fix” yourself. This desire to use the love of someone else to soothe your own emotional problems inevitably leads to codependency

So what do people say who were happily married for a long time:

You are absolutely not going to be gaga over each other every single day for the rest of your lives, and all this ‘happily ever after’ bullshit is just setting people up for failure. They go into relationships with these unrealistic expectations. Then, the instant they realize they aren’t ‘gaga’ anymore, they think the relationship is broken and over, and they need to get out. No! There will be days, or weeks, or maybe even longer, when you aren’t all mushy-gushy in-love. You’re even going to wake up some morning and think, “Ugh, you’re still here….” That’s normal! And more importantly, sticking it out is totally worth it, because  . . . in a day, or a week, or maybe even longer, you’ll look at that person and a giant wave of love will inundate you, and you’ll love them so much you think your heart can’t possibly hold it all and is going to burst. Because a love that’s alive is also constantly evolving. It expands and contracts and mellows and deepens. It’s not going to be the way it used to be, or the way it will be, and it shouldn’t be. I think if more couples understood that, they’d be less inclined to panic and rush to break up or divorce.

Your vibrational alignment happens when you stop fighting within yourself, when you stop denying yourself and when you release resistance that comes from not accepting the emotions that you have. 

Another happily married person says:

Happily Ever After doesn’t exist. Every day you wake up and decide to love your partner and your life—the good, the bad and the ugly. Some days it’s a struggle and some days you feel like the luckiest person in the world.

Most people will never experience deep and utterly  unconditional love precisely because they think that the “in love” emotions, the infatuation is the love and inevitably, that runs out, and when “it” runs out, so do they. The unconditional love that you long for is waiting for you, on the other side of the negative feelings you were taught do not belong in a relationship. How do you get there?

You schedule your fights, and that way you remove the chaos of the swing of the energy structure, or pendulum, as reality transurfing calls it. You fight on Thursdays, between 5 and 6, and the rest of the time you practice rising above.  For example, But do fight fair, no abuse and no low blows. Fight the way adults should fight, bring up your expectations of them, and hear them out on their expectations. Make your demand, and accept their demands. 

Why do you have to tell them your demands and expectations and listen to theirs? Because it teaches you both respect. One person who is succeeding at marriage says:

My husband and I have been together 15 years. I’ve thought a lot about what seems to be keeping us together, while marriages around us crumble (seriously, it’s everywhere . . . we seem to be at that age). The one word that I keep coming back to is “respect.” Of course, this means showing respect, but that is too superficial. Just showing it isn’t enough. You have to feel it deep within you. I deeply and genuinely respect [my husband] for his work ethic, his patience, his creativity, his intelligence, and his core values. From this respect comes everything else—trust, patience, perseverance (because sometimes life is really hard and you both just have to persevere). I want to hear what he has to say (even if I don’t agree with him) because I respect his opinion. I want to enable him to have some free time within our insanely busy lives because I respect how he spends his time and who he spends time with. And, really, what this mutual respect means is that we feel safe sharing our deepest, most intimate selves with each other.

How do you suppose you ever get to this level of respect if you are afraid to tell them what you want, and if you are afraid to hear them out about what they want?

Another man who has been happily married for decades says:

Respect yourself and your wife. Never talk badly to or about her. If you don’t respect your wife, you don’t respect yourself. You chose her—live up to that choice.

Now, for everyone who have lost themselves in the circumstances, and simply can’t find the way to rise above:

Let’s recreate the first moment you fell in love, or create for the first time, if you have never fallen in love, and let’s create love at first sight.

This is the magic, but REMEMBER,  it has to keep a balanced opposite in the world of manifestation, or it will swing back on its own.

 You find excuses to be together all the time,

You finish each other’s sentences, you  feel so  safe, so grounded and secure.

You think of your sp often and you think things like “Oh, he would love this” or “I think I’ll get this for her“.

You feel like warm sunshine on bare skin, you feel like the freshness of the air is enlivening, you notice birds when they chirp, people seem so happy to you and when you see a couple holding hands you get warm inside and think of your sp,

Being in love is emboldening, and you know how to express your feelings of adoration with confidence.

Being in love feels like you want to give all of yourself to your specific person.

It feels like you’re a more whole version of yourself, not because you weren’t whole before, but because now you’ve met someone who reminds you, constantly, through their actions, words, and energy, that you are worthy of love, this is your person and you know it. 

Being  in love feels like you have a better understanding of yourself and of the world. 

You know that your specific person will guide you closer to your purpose, and  support you in your endeavors.

Being in love is  equal giving and receiving of acts of kindness, of generosity, of your very best self, you don’t hold back your respect or admiration or adoration, and you receive the same in full measure. 

Being in love is calming and satisfying it is thrilling, a little scary, and exciting.

It is unknown and  you feel  vulnerable.

You can’t wait to see the person, and they are  feeling the same thing back.

You can see that their eyes light up with joy from seeing you.

When you meet them the first time there is an instant stirring in your soul, it is an instant knowing on a  soul level, and you think to yourself, “Here he is!“, or “here she is”.

It’s fun, it’s funny, it’s sensual, it is sexual and it’s a magical, it is sweet and it is tender, and it is a  sacred connection no other soul can ignite within you.

You know that everything could go wrong, but here you are, being vulnerable and falling in love anyway. Loving in spite of it all. You are brave and take steps you wouldn’t do for anyone else.

Falling in love feels like  a bubble around you, and it protects you from the regularness of life, inside the bubble, magic takes place. 

Basics of manifesting | Neville Goddard | Changing the quality of desire to an intention and a choice


How you manifest one thing Is how you manifest all things, I know this has been debated, but I will show you what I mean, so that you can bring home ALL your desires.

To better understand you have to know first of all that YOUR self image tells the story of how you see yourself AND how you see yourself informs you of what choices you are allowed to make.

I will give you an example:

if you are 600 pounds and can not get out of bed your story and self image will inform you of what you are allowed to choose in life, and only if you,

a. conform to your preprogrammed beliefs that can you make different choices

b. change your preprogramming and decide that the programming world of pendulums will conform to you, that you can make different choices.

It might seem to you that you are trapped in that body of beliefs, but that is not the case, if you are unable to manifest chances are that you have not allowed yourself to make the choice to have yet 

How you see yourself is how you act

This is propelled by invisible motivators

Most people have absolutely no clue of what their motivators are.

One example is narcissists that are propelled by fame and recognition

some people are propelled by the one true love

others are driven by solitude and safety

Some people are propelled by honor

Who are you, and what drives you that you are unaware of?

You might not  know what your motivating propeller is and that  is okay, that is not my point, because  you can bridge this gap anyway, but if you do know, you can replicate this motivator by superimposing it on your desire.

How you see yourself self-generates your internal visions of your future, and these subconscious visions determine how you act. This is our autopilot imaginal scenes so to speak.

Psychology will have you believe that “society creates you” but manifesting is not bound to a single earthly thing, so you are free to transcend all of this with a simple decision to have.

That every human is a product of suffering and reward, and as an adult that reward behavior is still your propeller, BUT this is exactly the programming that you are free to reprogram.

If we chose NOT to, we are in fact nothing but a product of upbringing. You have free will, and it is to be used for the purpose of blazing your own trail.

One of the biggest problem areas in making a decision to have,  that I see, is with SP, but it can happen in any area, for anyone, and the example of the 600 pound person is perfect because you will finally understand the difference between desire and making a choice.

If you want to lose weight, and you go on various diets, you try a cabbage diet, or you try the keto, and then after a week or thirty days you give up, and then you try a different method then you have not made the choice yet. It is a half assed decision, but that is called indecision, and indecision is a handbrake on manifesting. You have to let the handbrake up, to go forward, you have to make the choice. Once you make the choice that you want to be healthy FOR LIFE, the weight starts to come off. You have suddenly decided to be a different person, a healthy person, someone who sees the self differently, and this lifestyle change is what the people who manifest sps don’t do. You might even be asking questions like “how do I DO self love so that I can get….” this is not a one hundred percent commitment to yourself, this is a half commitment, it is indecision, and it is NOT a choice. It is what we do when we have NOT decided yet. Oh I’ll try this fad for a minute and then I’ll see. NO it has to become a choice for you. I love this person, there are no other feelings allowed in me, no other options exist, it is a turning point, and a 100 percent commitment, and this is called a life choice, not a fad. Nothing that you do until you “get” them and then stop. This is a new you. 

“And Elijah came near to all the people and said, “How long will you go limping between two different opinions? If the Lord is God, follow him.”

 “But let him ask in faith, with no doubting, for the one who doubts is like a wave of the sea that is driven and tossed by the wind. For that person must not suppose that he will receive anything from the Lord; he is a double-minded man, unstable in all his ways.”

I used to treat patients for pain, and I would often assign them a one year practice with yoga if the situation warranted, and then after that,  a ten year practice, and why would I do that? It  is because most people try yoga one or two or three  times and then say that it didn’t work. 

IT” didn’t work.

Sound familiar?

Have YOU said that about your manifesting.

There is NO “IT” that works, it is YOU that works. Either you make a design or you are in indecision. One or the other, and as soon as the design is made, your whole mindset shifts, you fear and worry disappears and your mind frees up and aligns with who you are, and suddenly the hunches start to flow. Suddenly you are ALLOWED to take the right actions.

It is a change that you make for life. A new life. How you see yourself informs you of the choices that you CAN make in life. CAN you choose to be with the one you love? If not, why is that? Because you feel guilt or shame, and that you are not worthy.

  1. We get what we choose, not what we wish.
  2. We make the choice by intention, not by desiring.
  3. You have to choose to not be your own enemy, by declaring yourself to be the chosen one.

How do you change the quality of your beliefs, so that your desire becomes your choice?

The whole universe is pure vibration, and particles and matter do not exist, in its truest sense. Only vibrations are real, even a seemingly solid object like a mountain can be examined on a vibrational level, and this is how quantum entanglement works. Our mental states are also vibrational, and we align with certain “states” energetically.

The energy of desiring is different from the energy of having made a choice, a decision, or an intention.  

AND Each soul has its own individual paths of unique truth and alignment  (the path of complete self-realization). 

To get there, you need to stop your attempts of being like someone else, stop attempts of repeating another person’s scenario, and to recognize the magnificence of your own individuality. You have to be daring to turn your mind to your unique soul. Do not be afraid to break stereotypes of pendulums that scream: “do as I do” and “be like everyone else.”

Changing a desire to a choice is as much a renunciation of who you are NOT, as it is a decision to have.  False modesty, guilt and shame and inferiority complexes keep us from making the decision to have because we have fallen for criticism by manipulators that we have to “pay” for what we desire. The only payment that we actually have to make, is with an equal energy, so if you are resisting making the intent to have, and staying in the desire and in th  wish unfulfilled, you will pay accordingly with an equal energy of unworthiness or  punishment. Only you can choose that you are worthy, and that you don’t have to pay for any imaginary crimes, and for you to stop paying you have to make the decision to have.

I want to give you a personal story to illustrate the shift from wishes to choice. I used to live in a different town, and I liked it fine there, but in 2015 a massive increase in homelessness hit, and a skid row was built in just two short months. Boxes, tents, tarps lined the sidewalks, and drugs and prostitution and deaths increased. Initially I sort of wanted to fix the problem, I wanted to be active in my community in solving this, but one day, I just woke up and realized that sometimes these problems never get solved and then I would spend my whole life surrounded by a dangerous, ugly and depressing skid row. I decided to move.

I thought about where to go, and I decided where I wanted to live, and it was in one of the most expensive and popular zip codes. It was out of my price range, but the decision was made, and my mental energy shifted from problem solving, and wishing things were better, to a choice. The skid row did not bother me anymore, my sight was set higher, and I got what I wanted. This is the difference. The freeing up of the mental energy that is misguided while you are desiring, wishing and hoping, makes the manifestation fall in your lap. This happens because now you are suddenly aligned with YOUR truth. This whole time, I had never truly enjoyed the city where I lived, not an outright dislike perhaps, until the skid row popped up, but after I decided to move, I made the decision to love where I lived, and this choice changed my vague indecisiveness into an intention.

The soul of each and every person has a unique individual set of attributes that characterize it, and your uniqueness is also your purpose. Your purpose is NOT to play small. Decide now that you are worthy.

Imagine the story about David and Goliath, how little David is up against a giant. You might be up against a giant, and if you are, you have to decide now, that you are able. That God supplies what you are lacking. David was too small to win, but he won nonetheless, and this is the result of a choice. I will go and fight the giant, in spite of what your circumstances are telling you, you have what it takes to achieve your desire, this is built into us. The desire and its fulfillment is buried in the same seed and our job is merely to accept that the desire belongs to us, and that we are worthy. 

Imagine eons ago, when humanity were cavemen, or even before that. We existed on a level of consciousness similar to animals, on instinct mostly. Imagine now if we had questioned and second guessed every desire, every pang of hunger and every lust for sex, we would have died out. The same is still true today, our desire drives evolution forward and continues our existence, but beyond that, it also drives us closer and closer to realizing our true identity as god-self. Without desire, we don’t go through the natural human steps of evolution, and we go extinct. We are here for a simple reason, to receive. Decide NOW that you are worthy.

Imagine that the stories of the Bible are actually telling you to go big or go home, and try to see these stories  in a new light. Imagine for example that the story of Joseph in the well is a story about a bridge of events, towards his purpose, becoming king.  This is the most epic bridge of events ever, and throughout, Joseph never questions the rightness of his path. He is betrayed by his envious brother, thrown in a well, sold as a slave, betrayed again by what’s her name, and on and on the story goes, but one day, he is made King, and one day, he gets to host his brothers who now need him. He remains calm and unattached to both guilt, shame, pride, ego and everything else that is an energetic deviance from the INTENT TO RECEIVE. Be like Joseph,  when someone tries to make you feel guilt. Be like Joseph when your own mind tries to make you feel guilt. Your desire is put into your heart, don’t talk yourself out of it, keep speaking validation to your heart. Declare now that your desire is a decision. A choice and an intent. This releases the miracle into your life, it belongs in your life, but our fear and manipulations, and our false belief that there is some kind of hoop you have to jump through to become deserving reduces this miracle to a mere magic trick. The fruit of your decision to have, is good, and the fruit of your indecision is lack.

Are you holding yourself back from your desires because your “you are up against a giant” or  “your 12 older brothers have told you that you are insignificant?”  Are you  stuck in the well right now, or a slave to the Pharao

What is enslaving your mind?

 And what imaginary crimes are you feeling guilty about? This guilt is stopping you from making the decision of turning a desire into an intent.  Into a choice.

In James 4 it says:

You do not have because you do not ask God. 

When you ask, you do not receive, because you ask with wrong motives

The wrong motive is for example, “the fad diet” that I used in the beginning to illustrate, it is a fake choice, a noncommittal choice.  A NONCHOICE.

You need to make a 100 percent choice that THIS is what I want, this is my choice, and let go of manipulation, let go of half choices, let go of  “I’ll do it for a day and if it doesn’t work it means this doesn’t work”

It only works  when you decide that this is your choice.

In Taoism, manifesting is called “ effortless effort” but it only becomes effortless once you free up your mental energy by making the choice, because the mental energy that it takes to argue for your limitations is enormous. It eats up most of your energy.

The world might tell you that you are a byproduct of the situation you are in,  but don’t buy into it, you are not, you are a product of your own imagination. 

Free your imagination from its prison by making the choice to have.

Are you just asking for a little bit better than the misery that you are in? 

Are you tempering your heart’s desires so that you can shrink it down,  so that you CAN  “believe”?  This is a mental adjustment of the true desire, which comes from the heart. Keep your mental limitations away from your heart space.   Our minds are not capable of figuring out the inner workings of how desires are ultimately fulfilled, so all the mind  does is put resistance and time in the way.  This is how we create our own obstacles.  Of course there are no actual obstacles, only what we created from our disbelief.

This mental tempering of desire is NOT why you are here, your purpose, or multitude of purposes, has nothing to do with what is or isn’t possible, but only with what “sparks joy”.  Simply put, you are here to BE YOU, all out, not ashamed to ask. We are told; ASK, and you shall receive, but then we don’t ask…You have not because you ask not.  Instead we stack all the reasons against ourselves for why we should not have what we clearly know that we are wishing, hoping and dreaming for.   Does the wish disappear because you are afraid to go for it?  No.   If anything it gets even stronger.   You do NOT have to drop everything and throw yourself head first into a potentially failing endeavor, no, again we are told ASK. Ask, and it is given. So ask already. This implies absolutely NO ACTION on your part, just an intent to receive.   We love to play it small, it suits our ego’s, strangely enough. “Oh I could never” …. “I am so much more humble and unassuming than that”.  Playing it small is the opposite of humble, and it is caused by an original feeling of guilt. This guilt is false, and you are worthy. Decide now that you are worthy.

When negative events happen we tend to “run and hide”  immediately, so quick to believe that something “isn’t meant to be”, but remember Joseph then, in those times when you seem to fail, when you have made your choice, and you run into difficulties.  The difficulty is part of your path, decide now that it is there to create a new skill in you, overcome it and stay on your path.

My stepdad comes to my  mind. It was  in the late 80s I think.   He came home from work one day, he was an engineer, he had a great job, with a great salary.  Little did I know that he had harbored a greater dream inside of him, a vision of something a little different…He came home one afternoon, with the news that he had been laid off. A great silence immediately settled as we stared at him with serious faces. To our surprise,  instead of disappointment, he shouted for joy, and he did one of those cartoon jump kicks that showed us clearly that this is actually  what he wanted.  I thought he might have a psychotic break for a moment, but it quickly became obvious that he had bigger plans for life and this was the opportunity he had been waiting for, and what followed was his path to business ownership and making six figures, and then seven figures. A perfect bridge of events. The work that he put into growing his business was significant, and he did it with an energy that I didn’t know he had.

Have faith the size of a mustard seed and you will bring this home.

 “Truly I tell you, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move. “ -Jesus

Do you believe that you have to script, that you have to do affirmations? That if you miss a day of doing your methods “it” will fail? It doesn matter if you fail every day in your methods there is NOT ONE SINGLE THING that you can DO.  You do not DO, you make the choice, the choice is the faith the size of the mustard seed. You do not know the way, you do not know the how, this is embedded into your choice the same way that the mustard plant is embedded into the seed. It does not matter if you can’t see what you should do next, because soon enough your path unfolds before you, and that is when you know the next step. If the next step seems wrong to you, the giant is to big, or your twelve brothers to mean, then YOU are the one who is stopping your own manifestation. Make the choice to have, and then go. Whatever comes your way next is part of your path so don’t cave in just because it LOOKS to you like a failure.

The mustard seed has to break when it sprouts, maybe the seed believes momentarily that it has failed. Maybe it hurts to break. Maybe it fears that it is over, and it will never become anything after all.   Moments later it sprouts, but the seed did not know that, this is the path that it would take. Your choice will put you on the path of your new timeline, and don’t be afraid of your new timeline.

Feeling is the secret

“Be careful of your moods and feelings, for there is an unbroken connection between your feelings and your visible world.”

— Neville Goddard

This quote breaks the stereotypes that many try to perpetuate about Neville’s teachings. Clearly he recognizes the importance of feelings and emotions, he states in no uncertain terms. What you allow yourself to indulge in, is essentially “what you think matters” and if you think it matters the transformation into your world is a fact.

How do you react to the events in your life? 

Correct yourself if you have been a drama queen until now. How do you react when you are in a storm, small or big?

Experiment by taking the tiger by the tail, using a conceptual idea of  “you and your world”.

Because YOU are both the image and the reflection, you can use your reflection to your advantage, by using an idea of “Me and my world are …..” 

For example, “me and my world are going to make this video”, or “me and my world are going to get ready for work”, “me and my world are going to get on the subway:” begin to  use this concept throughout the day,  every day for one week. 

Even go so far to put it on the calendar so that you don’t forget. Put reminders for yourself throughout the day so that whatever you are doing when the reminder goes off, you can take inventory, “me and my world are preparing for this meeting”.   I  want you to get used to being in control  of your creation, understand where you begin and end, understand that you are bigger than just your body.   After this  routine  starts to become a habit,  incorporate your intentions into it, that is, your choices.   Your manifestations.  If you desire to be a famous rockstar, then “ me and my world are becoming a famous rockstar”  or  if you are manifesting a new house “ Me and my world are buying a house”.   You can do both the end result, and the process there, it is fine to interchangeably say “are” and “becoming”.  “Me and my world are getting married” and  “Me and my world are happily married”  can both be used.

This is informing your nervous system of a definite qualitative change within you.  You know that you create your world, so you are comfortably commanding it.  Furthermore, your desire is no longer a mere hope, wish, or daydream, it is now a decision.   As a decision,  for you, the CEO of your life,  it will happen because that is how decisions  play out.  A decision is an obvious step towards fulfillment. A decision HAS to be made, no matter how small.  A decision if it will be chicken or burgers for dinner HAS to be made, otherwise there will be no dinner. I decided to eat taquitos for dinner. That means sometime today I’ll pick up some salsa and some guacamole from the store, so that I have everything I need to make dinner. This is a decision, a choice, and as such it will happen. You don’t need to maintain or persist in the feeling of desire, it will come and go naturally, maybe as you think about dinner you get a little hungry and you look forward to it, but you don’t force this. This type of desre has changed energetic quality, and this brings it home, it is aligned with anticipation, not hopeless daydreaming. You don’t have to worry about the traditional  LOA conundrums such as DO I DROP IT OR DO I PERSIST??  You have made a decision.   A decision comes to pass.

THIS simple shift will make a BIG difference for you.

Neville Goddard Says:

“Determined imagination is the beginning of all successful operation. The imagination, alone, is the means of fulfilling the intention.”

-Neville Goddard

This determination that he is talking about  is the choice, and then the intent to have. It is that simple. It doesn’t matter what you think or do in between, you don’t have to be viding high, you don’t have to be exclusively positive, you just go about everything during your days naturally, because it comes to you through an avenue that is perfectly natural. Everything lines up, and you just make sure to take actions that are unrelated, whatever your day presents to you, count on it being for the benefit of your choice, regardless of how “opposite” it looks. It is never the opposite, it is always correct. Be relaxed in this. You decided already for taquitos for dinner, and it doesn’t matter if there is a crisis at work, deal with life as it comes, it has nothing to do with anything. Everything is lined up in your favor, and we don’t see the whole picture, so sometimes it looks opposite, but know that it is not, it is for you, and it is going in the right direction. Your heart never lies to you, it is incapable of deceit, so going towards your heart’s desire is ALWAYS safe.

“If you will assume your desire and live there as though it were true, no power on earth can stop it from becoming a fact.”

-Neville Goddard

There is more than one reason for this but the most important one that most people completely forget is that your desire happens to be intrinsically linked with your gifts, and your unique abilities. Copying someone else’s abilities and  desires, or trying to be someone you’re not makes you path very difficult,  and it makes us feel unfulfilled regardless of how much wealth it seems to be to someone else. I wish I could convey to you how often people have achieved absolute success, but on someone else’s terms, and they are deeply unhappy. You were equipped with your desires for a reason. Let your personality shine, and decide today that you are worthy. Nobody can be you like you can be you. This kick starts a blessing, a chain of events, or a bridge of events as Neville Goddard calls it, that can not be stopped by any seeming outer force. You can think of it as if it is mean to be even. You are not accidentally given your desires, you have those desires to fulfill your own unique truth, call it lifepath. Your lifepath is waiting for you, already made, just waiting for you to step onto it.

 “Believe that you are what you want to be.”

-Neville Goddard

This quote sums up the belief that you are worthy. What is the reason for us being so quick to talk ourselves out of what we actually CAN have what we want?   Imagine if we do that to our friends or loved ones? What if you were as negative to your friends as you are to yourself, if they tell you that they hope for something. Will you tell them that they can never have that, they are too fat, too broke, too ugly or too stupid? No? Well, we do sneaky little versions of this to ourselves ALL THE TIME. It is time for you to celebrate yourself, maybe you are too ugly and too stupid but so what? Do you know how many ugly people think that they are God’s gift to mankind? I’m not saying to be arrogant, of course, but I am saying, accept your own greatness by noticing your strengths, and by knowing that you are worthy, just because you are here. Whatever flaws you have that you have used as reasons stacked against yourself are not at all flaws, they are part of you and other people might wish that they were just like you.

“The world is yourself pushed out.  Ask yourself what you want and then give it to yourself! Do not question how it will come about; just go your way knowing that the evidence of what you have done must appear, and it will.”

-Neville goddard

“A change of feeling is [the same as] a change of destiny.”

— Neville Goddard

“Assume the feeling of your wish [having been] fulfilled and observe the route that your attention follows.”

— Neville Goddard

“You are already that which you want to be, and your refusal to believe this is the only reason you do not see it.”

— Neville Goddard

“Your assumption, to be effective, cannot be a single isolated act, it must be a maintained attitude of the wish fulfilled.”

— Neville Goddard

 “It is not what you want that you attract, you attract what you believe to be true.”

— Neville Goddard

 “Man’s chief delusion is his conviction that there are causes other than his own state of consciousness.”

— Neville Goddard

To accomplish the task of creating a dwelling place, the state of the “wish fulfilled”, one would need to “take the material world and elevate and connect it to God.” This means that whatever you see around you that you don’t like, transform the quality of this in your imagination until it becomes like the fulfilled desire, and this is the same as “elevating and connecting it to God”.

Claim what is yours with the will to have. The intention is the power, and it has to be neutral and free of resistance, not unlike going to the grocery store and picking out items. It is a simple choice and an intent. Imagine if you went to the store for groceries, and when there, you started to  think that you have to ‘have a strong desire” to buy oranges, and that you had to persist in your affirmations…  This is how many approach manifesting. 

Getting stuck in this useless energy wasting resistance mode, drop importance and approach it like a more mundane activity.  Don’t be afraid that it won’t come, have a different plan laid out in case it doesn’t work so that you are not plagued with fear, that creates even more resistance. Make peace with potential failure, and then go ahead and act in the way that most naturally follows next. DO NOT WAIT, you need to take some type of action, towards something, otherwise you create EVEN MORE resistance. Don’t take “false” action, that is don’t manipulate or finagle the outcome, rather take any natural action based on your current moment. 

Dwelling in the state of the wish fulfilled, is the same as the sort of indifferent state of having basically anything that you currently have, in other words, there is no desire there. Think of something that you now have, that you previously desired, and how you rarely if ever even give it any thought at all.

Dwell in the state of I already have THAT.
