For the past three months, every night, before falling asleep my darling one and I have read this by Neville Goddard:
“Control of your feeling is all important to a full and happy life. Never entertain an undesirable feeling, nor think sympathetically about wrong in any shape or form.
Do not dwell on the imperfection of yourself or others. To do so is to impress the subconscious with these limitations. What you don’t want done unto you, do not feel that it is done unto you or another. This is the law of a full and happy life. Everything else is commentary.”
Three months, or ninety days was the allotted time, not because we wanted to learn it by heart, although naturally we did, but because experience has shown that ninety days is the time needed for something to become a part of who you are.
We didn’t want to intellectualize it, we wanted the concept embedded in our sub-conscious, we wanted it to become a habit of thought, to be a conscious part of who we were. We accepted the premise that this was the law of a full and happy life and the rest of the stuff we get up to didn’t really matter two hoots. And even if it really isn’t the only law of a full and happy life…it was one we were happy to live by. It felt good to us.
We both wanted to see our friends and family and yes, even those we didn’t know personally, but might hear about, enjoying a fabulous state of mind. We wanted to release judgement and criticism or condemnation for others. We wanted to be mental encouragers, not discouragers.
Each one of us has a place which he or she is to fill and which no-one else can. There is a perfect expression of who we are awaiting awakening, a perfect, maybe hidden talent awaiting it’s unveiling and as we imagine and feel this about others, they are encouraged to blossom and bloom. And our entire world is made better for it.
Funny thing about consciousness…once you have something in your awareness firstly you begin to see it all around you and then you begin to experience it and then you become it… your own self.
This week it began.
Our Minister spoke about filling the world with love and kindness. Of being a champion for each other. Of thinking great and lovely thoughts about one another.
She told a story about sitting in a restaurant and watching a couple be given an entirely different meal than the one they had ordered and instead of being really annoyed and causing a fuss they told the waiter it was all okay and they accepted their meals. She and her husband were so thrilled with the loving way this was handled, they paid the bill for this couple and just to round it off, she gave them a cheque for one thousand dollars. Yep…not a typo…that was one thousand dollars. They believe in a bountiful God!
Next, we heard a famous spiritual teacher talk about how he’d been using the laws of life to experience something really important for him and it didn’t seem to be working. He knew it had to be him…the laws always work. Of course there might be times we experience ‘operator error’.
Then he remembered the need to give up judgement and condemnation of others and realized he’d been thinking critically of someone in his life…so he stopped…and before you could say flaming Ada, his desire was fulfilled.
To round the week off I was told I was the best cheerleader my friend had ever had. That my belief in her abilities always left her feeling she could accomplish anything.
As I said…so it began…our consciousness started to be reflected in our world experience, whoo hoo.
Want a little piece of unsolicited advice? Be careful what you immerse yourself in…it becomes a part of your conscious and then tout de suite you’ll find it showing up in your world.
On the other hand it’s a great thing…knowing how this works…and knowing it really, really works means you can choose to put into your imagination any wonderful thing you want to experience and before too long, voila.
Sorry about all this French stuff…don’t know what came over me. Hmmm maybe I’m putting a trip to Paris into my sub-conscious…will keep you posted. Hope my darling one is reading this, don’t want it to be too big a surprise or shock for him if it should show up!
Encourage one another.
