When you plant a seed in your garden, you don’t stand over it and do ritualistic dances around it to help it grow faster. You fertilize the ground, prepare the soil, plant the seed at the proper time, and simply take care of that seed—watching over it, watering it, and making sure if there is bad weather, you protect. No amount of wishing can make the seed grow any faster than the universal force within that power seed has intended. When we plant a seed with this PURE intention, we let the Universal Force of Nature do what the LAW intended for it to do.
When we pray a prayer, it’s like this seed. We plant the seed in the fertile soil of Universal Energy, what some might call the Subjective Mind, or the unused energy. This energy is God, but also part of God, as it is written that God spoke into the void (the subjective mind) and created the universe. Although all is God, the creative energy of God, in this instance seems to be something subject to the Word of God.
The Universal Force spoke its word (the seed, the prayer). In time that powerful word entered into the vast depth of nothingness, shaped, and created the Universe.
What we must understand in this metaphor:
- Our words are Seeds of Power.
- When we send our thoughts and prayers as seeds into the universal force, just as God spoke the worlds into existence, we learn our first lessons in how to create in the microcosm of this Earth.
- When we sow seeds of disbelief, however, we detract from the very energy that should be helping nurture the seed to its full capacity. The seed of the mighty oak would be a great example here. Can we dance around this tree and make it grow any faster than Nature intended? (Or a metaphoric example of negative thinking would be chopping down the tree because it wasn’t growing fast enough.)
We have a metaphor in this universe that is imbedded in the very fabric of society: genetically modified anything. Humans mess with the DNA and molecular fabric of something that the Original Word created, and suddenly begin to think that this New Product of the human mind will be better and faster and create wealth quicker than waiting for the Organic Intention of Nature and the Universe. We could not be more wrong in our thinking when we allow our thoughts to be metaphorically Genetically Modified.
Genetically modified wheat, for example, is causing most of the population of United States to bloat from the belly and causing us to crave more sugars and simple carbohydrates. Until we understand what we eat, we will be subject to the Modified and Manipulated power of humans trying to make more money and sacrificing the proper time, nutrition, and energy needed to allow the seeds of our future to produce food and fruit fit to be absorbed into the body of Man.
I write about this because I see so many people dreaming, trying to manipulate the power of the universe with words and visions, which is a senseless waste of time. Even Ernest Holmes the father of all New Thought, said that there is no amount of wishing and praying that can make anything change in the universe. Once you release your prayer (your order, if I may make yet another metaphor), the natural production of substance—the shaping, forming, growing—must come from the universe itself.
You can do nothing more than pray for your own Disbelief. In fact, if you want to meditate on a prayer that you have prayed over and over again, pray as the Gospel of Mark suggests in chapter 9: “I believe. God, bless my unbelief.”
In the beatitudes, inspired prophets says that we will be blessed, if we wait patiently. … And so the battle against impatience is a battle against unbelief. The chief weapon is …
“I wait for the Lord, my soul waits, and IN HIS WORD I HOPE (or believe).
