The barriers between you and your greater good are not barriers in themselves. They are things of thought. It is because of this that all things are possible to faith. Jesus summed up the whole proposition when he said, "It is done unto you as you believe." In interpreting this saying, however, you must pause after the word as.
Here's a powerful tool for clearing consciousness when you are standing in the face of contradicting thoughts or facts that oppose your good, or the good you intend to have -- ready? Stop, thinking negatively. Decide that you are going to set some high standards for yourself. Do not give way to that which appears as situations controlling your life.
We are intelligent beings living in an intelligent universe that responds to our mental states, and insofar as we learn to control those mental states, we shall automatically control our environment. This is what is meant by the practical application of the principles of Science of Mind to the problems of everyday living. This is what is meant by demonstration.
We're here to find that dimension within ourselves that is deeper than thought. This teaching isn't based on knowledge, on new interesting facts, new information. The world is full of that already. You can push any button on the many devices you have and get information. You're drowning in information.
The greatest goal you can set for this year is to make peace with your life, no matter what your circumstances. These ten powerful insights from Eckhart Tolle will get you started. Don't seek happiness. If you seek it you won't find it, because seeking is the antithesis of happiness. Happiness is ever elusive, but freedom from unhappiness is attainable now, by facing what is rather than making up stories about it.
When you look up at the clear sky at night, you may easily realize a truth at once utterly simple and extraordinarily profound. What is it that you see? The moon, planets, stars, the luminous band of the Milky Way, perhaps a comet or even the neighboring Andromeda Galaxy two million light years away. Yes, but if you simplify even more, what do you see? Objects floating in space. So what does the universe consist of? Objects and space.
I assign you to be a beautiful, good, kind, awakened, soulful person, a true work of art as we say, ser humano, a true human being. In a world filled with so much darkness, such a soul shines like gold; can be seen from a far distance; is dramatically different.
As we slow ourselves down a little bit and take a contemplative look at the way things are both in the world and in our own souls, we cannot help but realize that many of the spiritual truths that form the basis of the Science of Mind teaching are less articles of faith and more directly observable, verifiable truths. It is very much like the leaves in autumn that turn glorious hues of reds, yellows, and oranges.
The Company of Heaven is trumpeting a new dispensation, "The Body of God is expanding-unfolding and amplifying new levels of potential, new awareness...a whole new World, and the Realms of Light and Illumined Truth are now making available these new potentials for the Humanity of Earth." Can you hear their joyous shouts of celebration?
Are you feeling your new identity yet? Are you ready to see the new form? To expose the leaves of your new found Being? Do not worry if during this transitional time that you are confused, or filled with a sense of unknowingness because essentially we all are in the space of no identity. There is only a Being filling up the space of what used to be you - a being wondering what has happened to the old you.
