Absolute and Relative Thought #absolutethinking #spiritualprincipal #divineMind #SOM #relativethinking

In prayer and in thought we have two kinds of ideas in mind: Relative and Absolute:

Relative Thoughts exist or possess a specified characteristic only in comparison to something else; they are not absolute. Whereas,

Absolute Thoughts are viewed or existing independently and not in relation to other things; they are not relative or comparative.

We have considered in other Discoveries that God or Source is not relative to anything or anyone. Source is the beginning of all thought; therefore, source is Absolute.

Everything resulting from Source would be relative to the Absolute. So, it would make sense, when Source created all things manifested, that they came from Source in absolute form, from absolute mind. Creation is the beginning and has no other beginning but Source. Therefore, the science of creation, we could say, is to know something as Absolute, as opposed to relative. We would say this, because all of creation manifested from Absolute thought, not relative thought.

For instance: You desire to have more prosperity. In so doing, you treat for your situation with all of your existing circumstances (relative thought): “I want to get a promotion. I see myself getting more money for what I do. I see myself getting along with my coworkers better. I get my work done at home, rather than at work…” All of this treatment is in accord with the idea that you are still working at your same job or have the same circumstance as before you treated for your situation.

A better approach to prayer would be that we deal in the Absolute, because God or Source is Absolute. So, instead of praying about something specific to our situation, we should alter our prayer to be more open to various amounts of change and volition.

An example of the new prayer, from an Absolute Idea would be:

“Because Source is whole, complete, and always prosperous in everything and abundantly producing more and more at every level of creation; I, too, am producing more from every level of my life.

“My job is the perfect job for me. It provides for me ample money for me to do what I need to do, when I need to do it, and even more than I know I need.

“My job uses all of my talents in perfect accord with universal need and the needs of all the people in my life, including myself.

“I open my heart to this wonderful change in my life, as I put away my restriction in every area my life.

“I see myself Whole and ever-prospering in everything I do, including my work. I release this intention to the Law of Love. And so it is!”

From the Absolute all good can proceed from Subjective Source without filters and constrictions. You want to give Source every opportunity to help you and change you from a consistent belief in the power of your own Creative Thought. And the science of Creative Thought always begins with Absolute Ideas, never relative.

What Keeps You from Your Greatness? #prayer

Most of us immediately think the answer to this question is probably some kind of bad behavior or negative thinking. I have been leaning on this presumption for my entire life, always trying to eradicate the negative, so I can invite more positive thinking into my life. However, sometimes I need to go back and reread the directions to make sure I am praying according to the One Divine Law and not praying amiss. So, when I operate on the correct premise, what I have in mind—whether positive or negative beliefs—WILL PRODUCE IN KIND!

Let’s use a metaphor to create an understanding of Divine Law. I plugged in my stove into an electrical outlet. I turned on the burner and placed a pot of cold water on the burner. I let the water boil. I placed in the water some uncooked pasta. Then, I cooked the pasta, to create a fabulous Italian meal, with leftovers.

We have many laws working together to cause the effect of the boiling water and secondary effect of the beautiful meal. These laws are, metaphorically, the same laws as affirming intentions for our lives. Let’s take a closer look:

First, we have Divine Power that we will relate to the electrical current causing the stove to get hot. Second, we have a stove, which acts as a medium for the electrical current. Third, we have a person who must turn on the power. Fourth, we have the pot of cold water, which is the idea. Fifth, we must wait for the pot of water to boil. Sixth, we have the boiling water, which is the primary effect. Seventh, we have a secondary effect, the boiled pasta. Eighth, we have the completed meal, the desired effect. Lastly, we may have some leftovers for some days to come.

Let’s look at this metaphorically in terms of Praying According to Divine Law:

  1. Divine Power (Electrical Current): Everything and everyone is connected to Divine Power. The bible says that we were created in the image of it. The Apostle Paul said that we can do all things through It. So, we must acknowledge this important understanding of the greatest Law of all—God—or Eternal Existence. (I’m not opposed to you calling this power anything you wish, as long as it doesn’t make this power smaller than it is.)
  2. Consciousness (the conduit—the stove): For Divine Power to have an effect in this world, it must have a source or conduit to move through. You, precious Being, are that conduit. Let’s call this source your Highest Self or Consciousness.
  3. Your Individualized Self (the person turning on the stove): For you to be a conduit for the Divine Mind, you must agree to the law that “by turning on the stove, you will get the power to heat the pot of water.” (Notice, I did not say that you must understand the miracle of electricity, how it works, or why it comes to you directly from the outlet. You simply understand the one, basic principle, that by turning on the stove you get heat.) This concept is neither good, nor bad.
  4. The Idea Itself. (the pot of cold water): When the law of electricity is turned on by you, and you add to it an idea (the pot of water), you now have created an instance in your life where you have put the power of law (electricity) to work. This is called an intention.
  5. Salivating: You know that, eventually, you will have a meal. You even can taste the pasta before it ever becomes real, causing your body to salivate. Let’s call this the (thanking stage of the process), where you say, “I love Italian Food. Thank you, God, for creating tomatoes and sweet basil!”
  6. Wait and Release: No matter how much you desire for that pot to boil, watching or forcing it will not help. Divine Law must do the work. So, you must (release your control into the hands of the law, which you believe will work).
  7. The Effect (the pot of boiling water): When the law of electricity is turned on, by means of the stove’s power to heat it, it automatically creates the effect of the boiling pot of water. (Notice, again, I have not said that any of this is either good or bad. I have not done so, because this law works whether you leave the pot on the stove too long and burn your meal, or if you use it to boil the best pasta ever to make a perfect Italian meal. Both effects come from the same cause.)
  8. The Secondary Effect (touching the pot): When you set Divine Law into motion, It creates an effect. If you don’t understand the effect, such as a curious child wanting to touch everything he sees—reaching out to touch the hot pot will result in another, secondary effect: a burned finger.
  9. Intention: Say you have set out to create this perfect meal using the law, but you left the water boil for too long and had mushy pasta. You may want to go over the process one more time, tweak it, read the directions again, and correct your misperception about how long the pasta should cook. I would recommend doing this aloud! (Intentions are basically telling yourself that the truth works, until you see it manifest perfectly in your life.) Sometimes, it takes practice to see results. Intentions invite your mind to believe that the process will always manifest a result according to your belief.

Now, I will show you how you can use this Divine Law to your benefit by praying in accordance with It, rather than praying amiss.

When you desire something in your life, let’s say it’s a new job, here is what you must do to work with Divine Law to manifest what you have believed in your mind. (I will remind you in parenthetical phrases the metaphor I have used above to help you understand the directions more clearly.)

  1. You must first acknowledge the Divine Law works (electricity creates heat), without distinction or judgment.
  2. You must acknowledge that (you) hold the power—as a conduit.
  3. Then you must plug into this Divine Law (the stove).
  4. Set the law into motion by creating a positive intention (turning on the stove.) An simple example would be to say: “Divine Law always works. I am a conduit of this law. I set the intention that the perfect job will come to me now.”
  5. Choose the words carefully so that you use the law to your benefit by stating your truth in present tense, without limiting this power. (Imagining your delicious dinner before you ever start cooking down to the details of the spices and the cooking time.) See your perfect job in your mind, clearly, specifically, and actually imagine sitting at your new desk ready for your new job.
  6. Thank God for this Divine Law and your desired outcome: the job (salivating and thanking God for tomatoes and basil).
  7. Wait and Release your intention to Divine Law! By setting into motion this power through your intention (plugging into source and placing the pot on the stove to boil the water for the pasta), the law of this action must now create the desired effect. It cannot do otherwise. You must release your idea into the hands of this perfect and divine truth and believe it to be so. If you keep taking the pot off of the stove and removing the pasta before its cooked, you may have to wait a lot longer for your results.
  8. Secondary Effects may be the prosperity or good self-esteem you get from this new job, because you have taken a perfectly good thought, (plugged into source and created something wonderful through you), by using this law correctly.
  9. Intentions: This is the added extra (the leftovers). You have used your intention to create the perfect job. This reminds you of your success and the use of right treatment of the law. You may now set more intentions for your amazing life, with less waiting and more manifesting!

And so it is, Beautiful Creation of God!

Coming Up: I’ll be writing more about the power of our Co-Creative Minds!

Laws That Evolve: Roots Growing on Top of the Ground

The first program we learn in life is to put limits on our unlimited creative power. Everyone around a child sets boundaries—some safe, some not—to teach a new infant how to fear, basically.

“Don’t touch the stove! You’ll burn yourself.”

“Don’t go near the steps. You’ll fall.”

“Don’t talk to strangers. They will abduct you.”

“Sleep when you’re told.”

“Eat when I’m not tired.”

Infancy comes with few choices for the evolving spirit. The laws of fear often outweigh the proper laws of immutable, perfect love.

So, being a co-creator in a world where limits are immediately set in our mainframe as children, often only comes after we recognize the bad programming of the past has not produced a powerful future.

Subjective mind—the world of spirit—has no limits. However, it is directed by our conscious, human minds. If we see fearful thoughts manifest as negativity around us, we learn one confusing law after another, which only produces fearful and anxious results.

We must STOP seeing through the FEARFUL lens of the past. So, we can set our minds on the loving, powerful, prosperous intentions of God and Spirit. How is that possible, you may ask.

As I was taking one of my favorite teachers, Coco, for a walk this morning, I noticed that in Florida the roots of trees grow up the sides of the trunks and are mostly visible to the eye. In Nashville, where I just moved from, the roots of trees are buried far beneath the ground, so that they can collect the water from rains past. However, as the ground is sandier and less water is retained in it in Florida, the trees have adapted, here, to the climate to be able to grow.

As I thought about this, I realized that laws that I have been taught sometimes have to change for me to grow. I always thought that the word law carried with it the sense that it can’t be changed or altered. However, as I considered my old beliefs about laws, I realized that law is constantly changing.

As humans, we see the laws that reflect our human rights changing daily. In Colorado, we can smoke weed for recreation. In some states where gay people used to be arrested for loving the same sex; these same people can get married now. Even the laws of nature change to adapt to the weather, as in my example of the tree roots in Florida.

So, for our own paradigm to shift, our internal laws must change! We must move from praying that something will happen, to praying that it has already happened. This is important, so take note.

Creative law, or the power of prayer, depends on your understanding of the Universal Law. Your ignorance of the law is not an excuse for bad things to happen to you, any longer. You plant a seed. You water it. You wait, believing that the plant will grow according to the physical law of the universe. You may even be thankful for that beautiful flower before it ever appears. Then, the Law must make the plant grow—not you.

Notice where your power is and where the power of the law must take over. The first four actions of prayer are done by you. But, the last part of the prayer is to release your declaration to the law of right action. This law is the only immutable law of the universe.

But, you may ask, “What if I plant a seed, water it, and a flower doesn’t grow?” Then, my dear friend, you pray again for the manifestation of the law to happen. Because you know that the law that created you and the universe ALWAYS WORKS. You may, HOWEVER, ask Spirit if you have planted the seed in the wrong place, knowing that you should be seeing results. You see, we often complain, without asking to be directed. In my own personal life, maybe I have to be planted in Florida for the next step of my dream to manifest. This is where I have been directed, so I believe this to be true.

Let your prayers be focused on unlimited good. Know that it is so. Then release your intention to the Law that created the heavens and the earth. And so it is!

Coming Up: I’ll be speaking more about how to pray—not what to think, but HOW to think effectively, to change your life!
