When we think of a thought, this thought goes into our innermost parts, which is our subconscious. As soon as we become conscious of a particular thought we begin the creative process. The more we ponder on that thought the more it is being embedded in our subconscious, and sooner or later our consciousness will carry out that thought into our experience.
There is a male and a female principle within each one of us. Our male and female principles are designed to function in perfect harmony. They constitute our thoughts and feelings. This comprises our overall beingness, which is our individual consciousness.
We are what we think and what we feel. What we are in the inside is projected in the outside. The more established we are within, the more harmony we will experience without; that is in our body and affairs. Our experiences, conditions, situations are the reflection of our thoughts and feelings. The disharmony that we experience in our body and affairs has its roots in the disharmony between our male and female principles. This is the meaning of A house divided against itself cannot stand.
This is why what you think must be in the same alignment with what you feel in other to experience harmony, peace and joy. Some people may say "I would love to experience unconditional love", but deep down inside they don’t believe it is attainable. Some say "I deserve to be happy", and the next minute they say: "but true happiness does not really exist". You will hear people say: "I believe my partner can change", but moment later they began to criticize everything that he/she does.
We may have a lot of good intentions and goals and desires but unless we believe they are attainable and feasible we are not really creating the life that we deserve. It is in the heart (our subconscious) that we believe. The heart is a faithful servant and will always carry out what is there.
You may even say: "I believe in prosperity", but if in the heart you don’t really believe that prosperity is your divine right, you will not experience abundance in your life. The heart will always carry out what it sees there.
This is why you must define what you want. The more understanding you have about what you want, the more confident you will become. You will also become empowered by only attracting only that which you want.
What do you want? Define it and seal it with your intention. There is an underlying principle about everything you desire. Seek understanding! In doing so you will experience joy inexpressible and peace unshakable.

It is not enough to know what we want or desire, it is imperative that we also find meaning for every single thing that we wish to experience during our earthly journey. When we find the true definition to what we want, what we don't want will not show up in our experiences. The more we define what we want, the more we give it substance to materialize in the physical realm. There is no creation without substance. Definition gives understanding, and understanding gives us substance.
What is it that you want? We all want to be happy and we all want to feel good. We want to experience peace and joy, prosperity, health and wealth and much more. Our human spirit was purposely designed to desire the ideal. That is why our soul continuously longs for perfect peace and joy, unending and complete happiness, unconditional love and so forth.
Spirit can only create after its own kind. Perfection begets perfection. The Human spirit was created in the likeness of its Creator and for the sole purpose to create like its source. If we are to experience the ideal we must connect our mind to the creative source of absolute perfection,which is the God-Mind. The divine mind is the realm of divine ideas and perfect expression. Everything that we want to experience have their origin in God. We must therefore seek to understand the God-Mind; the infinite consciousness from which all things emanate.
The God-Mind is Man's 'Super consciousness' and it is inherent in our divine nature. We all have access to this realm of divine ideas. God,who is infinite intelligence, has carefully placed within each one of us the key to our perfect pattern. This is the true path to God realization and the divine manifestations of everything our heart desires. The God-Mind is Man's unerring guide, and his connection to godly wisdom.
The outward expressions and manifestations that we want to realize in our lives have their true definition in God. However, there is a key to happiness, another key to success, yet another key to prosperity, still another key to peace, life, intelligence, substance, faith and every other divine idea that exists. But there is One master key that opens the treasure box which contains these hidden treasures of the soul.
Every manifestation is God realization. The key to manifesting your desires is to have a perfect knowledge of your Source, your Father, who is your creator and your First Cause. Seek to have an understanding of His attributes and his mindset. The more you understand the God-Mind, the more substance you have to create like him; in Spirit and in Truth. The more you understand the God-Mind, the more you are able to relate to Him. Seek to understand your origin, your purpose,your true identity, which are found only in God. Turn your focus inward and seek first the perfect kingdom of the Mind that is in you.

If you had a genie that could give you your heart utmost’s desire, what would you wish for? In a recent poll, most people’s desire was to know their life purpose.
Having our heart desires fulfilled lead us to living a purposeful life. When we know what we want, we avoid doing what we don’t want. What is it that you really, really, really want?
This may sound like a silly question, as if the answer should be obvious. But unless we are certain about what we desire in life, and unless we seal our desires through intention, we will leave this earth and not carry out the very mission we were sent for.
Many people have missed their calling and have ended up doing something that has nothing to do with their particular assignment. They have missed the mark because they never sought after their individual pattern.
Our divine pattern is engraved in our heart. Sometimes it will come to us as in a flash. Other times we will imagine ourselves doing something that our conscious mind would reason unfeasible. Some people, especially our relatives and close friends, will notice some of our talents or giftedness even at an early age. Those natural abilities are pattern indicators. They help lead the way to our ultimate calling.
Your Maker has designed and handcrafted you to function in a specific manner. Just like a manufacturer would carefully make a product with the intention to function in a particular way and for a specific use. In like manner God has fashioned you to operate and function in your specific calling.
You would not warm up your food in the refrigerator because refrigerators are not designed for that purpose. When you misuse something you end up abusing it. There is a specific pattern for your life, and if you ignore that pattern you will end up abusing your life, which will result to living a life of misery and unhappiness.
And in the same way the same manufacturer would include a user’s manual inside his product. God has placed within you, his masterpiece, a user’s manual; “How to live the purposeful life”. This unerring guide is His Spirit within you. He is in your heart. Speak to him today, all you need to do is open your heart and you will surely find him and hear from Him.
Infinite Spirit, I now open my heart to you,
As I trust your leading and your guidance in
Revealing to me the divine purpose for my life
Open my ears that I may hear from you today
Guide me to the way everlasting. Amen! Amen!
In His Holy Name,

This mental attitude may be foreign to many of us. Our mind is accustomed to viewing itself as separated from its Source, which is the God-Mind, the all-originating Spirit from which all things emanate. In truth, there is but one Mind expressed in various ways through different individuals. We are individualized aspects of the one Mind, the Mind of God.
In reality there are no separate minds. The Wrong conception of 'who we are' and ‘what God is' is the cause for the separation and division that Man experiences. This is what gave birth to the false ego identity. What we call ego is in fact 'self-hood'. It is the characteristic of one’s personality or individuality. Ego expresses itself in individual consciousness through desires. Our consciousness is made of our thoughts and our desires. And Man’s utmost desire is to find happiness. That strong desire is of the Spirit. It is The Spirit of God seeking perfect expression through us, which is our ultimate calling. In essence it is Love seeking recognition, and expression through us. The Spirit is of God and God is Love and we are also of God.
Love in is essential nature is pure. It is man’s divine nature. However without the wisdom and guidance of The Spirit that nature will eventually get corrupted. If love is not properly guided by The Spirit of God, it will seek guidance from Man’s corrupted intelligence or inner sight. We are of The Spirit of God; we are of God and must therefore operate in Him; that is according to his principles and mindset. This is in fact the process of spiritualization. This process, in fact, is Man’s individual journey back to the place of his origin in God.
The first step in this process requires that one recognizes God as his only Source and the creative life principle or life generator of all Good. Secondly one must acknowledge that this Source has already made a provision for Man's every need throughout his physical experience on earth. Thirdly God is seeking perfect expression through Man and only needs his cooperation. That is to have the willingness to know the Truth and nothing but the Truth.
Also in acquiring spiritual knowledge one must remain teachable and humble. Most importantly he must enjoy the journey. This process of spiritualization is for our own enjoyment. The Spirit of God loves a ‘happy learner’. Your cooperation also requires that you become one with the wholeness of Spirit (the divine Spirit), which is your divine and true nature.
Today give yourself over wholeheartedly to the the Spirit of God and trust Him to lead you step by step to this spiritual journey; which is in Truth, The Spirit Journeying through you.

We allow things outside of us to disturb us because we believe that they have the ability to do so. As long as we hold on to that belief we are allowing the world ‘without’ to interfere with the world ‘within’.
Moreover, we believe that our lack of peace has its origin in things outside of us. Nothing could be further from the truth. We often hear people say ‘you make me so unhappy, my children get on my last nerves, or you make me so angry’. In truth, no one can create in our reality unless we allow it. The sad thing is as long as we continue to believe that the source of our peace, joy or contentment is outside of us we will never find it.
If you truly desire to cultivate inner peace, you must be willing to accept the fact that True Peace can only be found within and that nothing outside of you is able to rob you of your Peace. What is yours is yours. No one and no-thing can take that which truly belongs to you. What truly belongs to you becomes a part of you; it becomes your authentic inclination.
If it is possible for someone or something to steal your peace, it means that you never had it in the first place. You must make a firm decision to seek Peace in you (not outside you). This will require that you pay close attention to your thoughts, feelings and emotions. It is true that things outside of us will cause us to act or react a certain way.
However every action or reaction has its corresponding thought-pattern within. The law of correspondence says: “as within, so without”. Many times instead of going to the cause of the matter we focus on the effects. And we deal with it superficially. On the outside it may appear that we are resolved but deep within we are not.
Today make every effort not to rely on anything or anyone outside of you to bring you to a state of peace. Also don’t blame things or people for the lack of peace you may be experiencing.
If you become disturbed about a particular situation you may say: "I desire to find peace in this situation (name situation)". If you become disturbed about a certain individual you may say after you bring his/her image to your mind and state his or her name: Peace be with you. The peace that you give is the peace that you keep. To create a continual state of peace, you may unceasingly affirm: I am only open to the influx of Divine Peace in my heart.
Peace be with you,

THE POWER OF CHOICE
Often times we are afraid to choose. We would rather let someone else choose for us or tell us what to do. We attribute choosing to failure. We don't think we are good enough to choose for ourselves, we don't trust ourselves enough to make good choices. We don't depend on ourselves because we don't know ourselves well enough and we don't really love ourselves. And quite frankly we haven't thought about ourselves long enough to find out who we truly are in the inside.
If we form the habit of going along with whatever others think is best for us, or whatever people tell us to do, we will never know who we truly are. We will end up living to please others and living up to their expectations and according to their belief system. This behavior is one of the main causes of unhappiness. Many people feel unfulfilled because they are living for someone else and not for themselves.
It is a real blessing to have friends, family members, mentors and other people in our lives who love us, advise us and care about our well-being. But when we depend solely on their understanding in order to make up our mind, we cripple our own understanding and we negate our innate ability to be creative, original and productive.
Today ask yourself, who am I? what gives me a sense of joy? what do I like to do? Consider writing down your personal thoughts in a journal. Make it a habit to write down the things that you are interested in, the places you would like to go, some of the things you would love to do. Don't worry about the means, but dream and dream big.
This is a good practice in finding out your true identity and your life purpose. Most importantly you will discover what you enjoy to do so that you can do it! Only then will you gain the confidence that you need in making your own choices.
Today believe in your ability to be original!
To a better you!

EMBRACING THE PRESENT MOMENT
The past is long gone. Even the past few seconds are no longer here. Seeing in the past is not seeing at all. Living in the past is not living at all. The only true time there is is the present moment. Embrace the present moment. Be mindful of the now.
Bless the past and watch it go, then focus on the now. Contemplate the future and see endless possibilities, then focus back on the now. Now is all that matters. Now is all that you really have. Now is your ‘present’; it is a gift, therefore cherish it. Now is "TIME" fulfilled!
When you bring your conscious awareness to the present moment, which is the only reality there is, you are taking charge of your reality and you are creating the experiences that you deserve now and not some time later. The consciousness of the present moment enables you to connect to your innermost being, the creative part of your soul, where you may commune with God and co-create with Him the life that you deserve. And you can only do this in the "now".
Eternity is in the heart of Man and eternity is the unfoldment of the present moment. Eternity is the realm of endless possibilities; it is God Domain and Man’s inexhaustible Supply. Ask and you shall receive. There is a supply for every need.
Your ‘now’ determines your ‘later’. What you create in the now will determine what you will experience later. Let your "now" be productive. Seeing in the past and being anxious about the future rob you of experiencing the Joy of the present moment.
In the present moment, practice divine communion. Receive divine guidance. Connect with your Source. Receive all your supplies. See all your needs met. Though they may not be visible as of yet, but see your desires fulfilled, see your wishes come true. The present moment quickens the eye of your faith where you are able to see your good prior to its TANGIBLE manifestation.
“Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them”.
In the "now" we enter the closet prayer within, which is the secret place of the Most High. In that moment THERE IS NO NEED TO SUPPLICATE OR BEG, SIMPLY OPEN YOUR HEART AND RECEIVE YOUR GOOD.
Practice saying to yourself, now is the time fulfilled, I bless the past and I let it go. My future is bright and I am on my way to it. I am here, speak Lord thy servant heareth. Practice makes perfect. As you continue these meditative affirmations you will begin to experience a surge of emotions that arises in your heart; it is joy inexpressible. It is something that results as Man’s soul communes with God.
Let today's practice become part of your daily thoughts and meditation. Whenever possible escape your daily routine even for a few seconds or minutes and practice being in the "now', which is being in God’s presence; Love's Presence. In His presence there is indeed everlasting Joy!

Plants exist. Animals do too. How about you? What is it going to be for you? The choice is always yours. Living unconsciously is merely existing; it is living by default. When you are not mind ful of the thoughts you entertain in your mind you are living unconsciously and become vulnerable, powerless and subject to the world negative collective thought-system and mindset. Throughout the whole creation only Man has the ability to think, to choose and to believe. Those centers of powers in the human organism constitute our God-given ability to create.
We are creators of our own reality whether we are conscious of this or not. To assume that someone else can create in our own reality is to give up our own power to choose and create the life we truly deserve. Our thoughts are constantly shaping our lives and no one else can think for us. We choose our thoughts. They don't choose us. This is the power of the will. This is why if our current thought patterns are not creating good experiences for us we have the ability to choose to think differently. We do so by retraining the mind to think only positive, happy thoughts.
If we allow someone else to choose for us we are giving up our will power and we will merely exist and be reduced to the animal kingdom or the plant kingdom. We must know ourselves and trust ourselves enough to make our own decisions. We must seek to find out what makes us thrive, what gives us a sense of purpose. We must seek for ourselves the answers that will lead us to true happiness and perfect peace. No one else can do this in our place.
Today take a moment to stop and find out whether or not you are consciously living or merely existing. Ponder on this for a while. The highest level of honesty is one toward self. Ask yourself: "What do I really want? Am I contemplating the circumstances that will allow my desires to manifest? Am I enjoying the process?”. These questions will allow you to make a conscious contact within.
Today escape this busy world even for an instant and reconnect to your Source; God within. If you are not sure what the answers are to the preceding questions ask Him. You came forth from Him, and you are on your way back to Him. This is inevitable. In the meanwhile you are here for a specific purpose, something that you are to do that no one else can. There is something you came to give birth to. It is something that you personally need to co-create with God for the well-being of others. Once you find out what that thing is you will also find true happiness, only then will you feel completely alive. Ask and it shall be given to you.
To your joyous living!

"The Power of prayer is like turning on a light as it illuminates God's purpose for our lives. There is no greater connection to knowing His will other than the Word".

Now that you have a better understanding of the subconscious mind and its relation to the conscious mind, you may begin the reprogramming process that will bring about perfect healing. But this will be effective and effectual only if you truly desire to change. If that is the case you need to continually affirm: “Above all else, I am determined and I am willing to change". This affirmation must come from the core of your being and you must speak it forth with absolute conviction and power.
Some people don't experience change because they have simply given up their will to change. In some cases their will is crippled because of the lack of
spiritual knowledge that will make them free. Consequently many people remain in bondage due to their closed-mindedness and ignorance. The truth is the soul will remain in the dark until light comes.
To start we must first remember that everything begins as an idea in the mind. As the idea unfolds it turns into thought-forms that later shape our beliefs system. Our beliefs create our mindset. A mindset is a fixed mental attitude or disposition that predetermines a person's pattern of responses. Mindsets create personalities. You can predetermine the course of actions someone will take in a certain situation if you know that person's mindset or his/her personality. To sum it up, we are the sum total of our beliefs system.
Once you learn to think differently, you will have a different set of beliefs. If you can learn to think, positively, constructively, affirmatively, lovingly, you will establish a corresponding belief.
Clearly your mind controls your life, but you are in control of your mind. This is why you can easily make the decision to think differently and to choose to live the life that you truly desire. In doing so you are taking full control of your current life circumstances instead of allowing them to dominate you. This is why allowing others to choose for you will only make you powerless, vulnerable and double-minded. Blaming others and making up excuses for the adverse circumstances you may be experiencing will hinder your healing process as well.
Living in the past is another enemy of progress. It causes one to feel regretful or remorseful which leads to bitterness, jealousy and envy. We often hear people say I wish I had married someone else, I wish my children behaved better or were obedient, I wish I looked the way I did when I was in my twenties, or thirties. I wish I had stayed single, I wish I never accepted this job; I wish I never relocated in this city. I wish my husband or my wife were more romantic. I wish we were making more money.
You must be the change that you wish to see and once you change the way you look at things, the things you look at will also change. Wishful thinking only sends out negative vibrations and that which we give away we keep. Energy attracts energy that is of the same rate of vibration. Our thoughts are like boomerangs. What we think and feel about the most we give energy to take form. The more we complain about what we don’t want, the more we attract what we don’t want.
If you want your life to change, imagine the life you truly desire and hold on to that perfect image. If you want your spouse or a loved one to change bless him or her by sending only good vibrations towards him/her. If your spouse or a loved one is sick, has a bad addiction, or in need of some other types of healing,you may say the God of Love is now making you whole, the perfect power within you is now giving you a good growth and causing you to flourish and you may also add after you state the person's name: I bless you and I love you. If some event from the past is haunting you in the present, you may recall the situation and bless everyone involved including yourself using the love treatment afore mentioned.
If you believe someone has hurt you really bad, forgive that person. Understand that no one in his or her right mind would intentionally hurt anyone. So somewhere down the line this person's mind got distorted, and your mind will become infected as well unless you release that person and yourself. Ponder on this: Essentially we are all good, for we all come from the source of all-Good, namely God. Therefore treat that person in love using the same format, bring that person's image in your mind and as you hold on to that image, send forth good thoughts, thoughts of healing and peace in his or her mind. Then state his or her name and add: I now forgive you, for in releasing you, I release myself. In forgiving you I now forgive myself. And I go free.
Do this as many times as necessary until you experience perfect peace. Do it throughout the day, and as soon as any adverse thought arises to your conscious mind. Memorize the love treatment statement and let it become your prayer and pray without ceasing.
To your perfect healing,

The Greek adage says: “know thyself”. We must begin there if we are to experience the radical changes that will transform the whole Man: spirit,mind and body. These changes that first occur in the spiritual plane will eventually materialize in the physical. To transform means to go beyond the form. It originates from the Greek word “metamorfo”, which means, “to changeinto another form, to transfigure”.
When we look beyond the physical appearances of things with a genuine thirst to acquire spiritual understanding, our mind is renewed and we are transformed. During the renewal process we will have but a vague idea of the 'former Man' and our friends will hardly recognize us. Better yet we will hardly recognize ourselves.
There are, as we know, 3 aspects of the mind, the conscious, the subconscious and the superconscious. The superconscious is the realm of God ideas. It is what the bible refers to as “Spirit in Man”, or “Christ in Man”, it is also called “the Kingdom of God in Man”. Some refers to it as “Christ Consciousness”. It is the realm of the ideal, the realm of absolute perfection..
The conscious and the subconscious constitute the soul of man. To better understand how they function we may consider the relationship between a male and a female. The conscious mind, which is the intellect, the will and the reasoning aspect of the mind, works objectively. The subconscious, which is the seat of emotions, memory, and creativity works subjectively. The conscious mind gives the order and the subconscious mind follows.
Male and female, created He (God) them. There is a male and female principles in each one of us, which constitute the Soul of Man. The conscious mind is the male and the subconscious is the female. When they work harmoniously Man experiences peace of mind. And when they fail to, he experiences pain and sufferings. There is a divine order of things, when that other is broken the consequences are inevitable.
The subconscious or the female principle relies solely on the conscious or the male principle for its needs. The conscious mind or the male principle must rely on Spirit and be fed on things above. This divine substance is obtained through the correct appropriation of spiritual knowledge through the learning process of spiritual truths. These substances supply the Subconscious with vitality of life, strength, love and other spiritual ideas found in the law of God or God Mind. When those needs are not met Man begins to look for things outside of him to satisfy those demands. That is how a lot of people turn to worldly passions or desires in other to satisfy their own emotional needs.
The subconscious in Man is the place of conception and birth. This is why women give birth and not the men. It is also a place of emotional pains; just like women experience labor pains. Nevertheless it is with the heart (subconscious) that we believe. Every suggestion, idea or concept the conscious mind accepts as truth, the heart believes it as such and sooner or later those beliefs begin to manifest in Man's body and affairs. As within, so without..
The Heart, who can understand it? The better we understand the subconscious mind the easier it will be to reprogram it.
Today be diligent. Pay attention to the ideas or suggestions that will submerge from the subconscious.
Keep an open mind and be willing to view them in a different light.
If any issues or conflicts arise, cease the opportunity to heal the heart by casting them upon your superconscious, which is the Father (Spirit) or the Christ within.
He is your unerring Guide and May He lead you to the way everlasting.

And I don’t mean the people with whom we live. Although some of us would love for this to be true. We tend to have attack thoughts, or conflicts towards the people who are closest to us or the people in our own household. Our real ‘enem ies’ are the adverse thoughts or feelings that arise from the heart.
From the overflow of the heart, the mouth speaks. The mouth represents our conscious or reasoning mind. The words that come out of our mouth express our feelings, and our thoughts express our unspoken words. Some of the thoughts that occupy our mind are sometimes due to some childhood memories or events of the past. Often times an image will come to our conscious mind that reminds us of something we have gone through or experienced during our upbringing. Other times someone might say some things to us that later trigger a certain feeling or a sudden surge of emotions, which in turn creates a pattern of behavior. This is in fact how character or personality is built in man’s consciousness.
The real matter is the matter of the heart. It has very little to do with the people we live with or the conditions we find ourselves in. These conditions are the effects of a cause. Just as the wages of sin, as we know, is death. Sin is the cause and death is the effect. The issues that we face on a daily basis have their origin in the mind; more precisely the subconscious mind, which is the heart. “… for out of it are the issues of life”. Our enemies are the adverse thoughts or feelings that arise from the heart due to some resistance we may have built in our consciousness. And in other cases it is due to the suppression of the same feelings. These are feelings that we have failed to properly deal with or have chosen to ignore. But the heart is very faithful and will from time to time bring to light (our conscious mind) those hidden or dark spots of the heart, so that they may be dealt with.
Our tendency is to blame someone else or something else for the disharmonies we experience in our own world. This is the characteristic of the false ego. His goal is to keep us in the dark by deceiving us and making us believe that the answer to our problems lies outside of us, rather than inside. The ego is a blind guide and we must not rely in its suggestions.
The ego is the false personality or the personality of sin that is born in Man’s consciousness due to his belief in Separation, first from God than from everyone else. It is born out of a mind that views itself as being disconnected from its source.
The heart is the place where we commune with God. Today pay attention to what God is saying to you. Therefore listen to your heart, for God talks to us through our feelings. The psalmist says: a broken and a contrite heart, O God, thou wilt not despise. We are broken when we bravely embrace our feelings and trace their pattern to their origin; the heart. We are broken when we confidently open our heart to God and rely on his divine truth to shine abroad our understanding and erase the pattern our erroneous thinking has traced in our heart.
Today, see every thought or feeling as God speaking to you. Your immediate answer should be “Speak Lord, thy servant heareth”. Open your heart and fear not knowing that God’s will for your life is that you experience unending and complete happiness.
Today pray for your ‘enemies’. When those negative thoughts arise from the subconscious mind turn them into prayers. For example let’s suppose there is a particular person in your life that you simply seem to have a hard time getting along with, or maybe each time the image of that person comes to your mind, negative emotions immediately submerge from the heart. Perhaps you believe that this person has hurt you. This may have been going on in your heart for a long time. Today cease the opportunity and put an end to this vicious cycle.
The way to stop this from reoccurring is to pray and bless that person. In fact praying and blessing others is praying and blessing ourselves for giving is receiving. Today “settle matters quickly with your adversary…”
In His love

The greatest need of the human race is salvation from the sin of unbelief. You may wonder how anyone can believe in “Good” when we are surrounded with so much “evil”. Or you may ask how can we expect anyone to believe in the idea of “perfection” when there is so much emphasis on our ‘imperfection’? What about the concept of Love, how can anyone still believe that True Love exists, except maybe in Shakespeare or fairy tales? But yet the world is desperately in need of unconditional love.
The truth is ... our heart is more inclined to believe what most people believe and are experiencing. Everyone is talking about the economy, the high cost of gas or mortgage, and the high cost of college tuition. We often hear people talk about the divorce rate or some other disharmonies people experience in homes and in schools. Moreover the media constantly bombards us with disastrous reports such as, hurricanes, wars, tsunamis, and earthquakes. Let‘s not forget about the third world countries, we hear news of political violence, civil war, famine, malnutrition and deadly diseases. As a result our mind becomes hypnotized by all this information which affects the World Collective Consciousness.
In order to be saved from these negative forces we must raise our consciousness above that of the world. How is this done? This must be done through the renewing of our own mind. The soul, which is the subconscious mind, must be saved from the pattern of wrong thinking, which leads to erroneous mindsets and beliefs that are based on a false ‘light’ (the wisdom of this world).
All the disharmonies that Man experiences may be undone when he aligns his conscious mind to the Divine Mind. God Mind is the realm of perfection and the creative source of all-Good. “Apart from Me you can do nothing”. Anything we believe we may have done apart from Divine Mind will go back to their native nothingness, because once we no longer invest our faith in something, it will stop to exist in our reality and disappears. Only that which is Truth according to God Mind has true substance of existence. “Have Faith in God”.
We are to “Abide in Him”, that is to acknowledge the Truth of God’s omnipresence, omniscience and omnipotence. And to believe that indeed He is everywhere present, which means he is all, he fills all and is above all. We must also recognize that He is Good, and only Good and in Him there is no evil. He is the true light that lighted every man who comes into this world.
Today, with this in mind, let us refuse to believe in the apparent realities the world offers. And instead let us strive to look beyond them and choose to see what God Mind reveals. No matter how difficult this may be at first we must persist until His kingdom (the realm of divine ideas) is established in us (our consciousness).

"The heart is hopelessly dark and deceitful, a puzzle that no one can figure out". I mean who can understand it? Well let's make an attempt.
First we must understand that all of our life experiences are registered in the heart. Everything that we have ever thought of, imagined or done is also impressed upon it. All of our life events, conditions, situations that have shaped our personalities are also recorded in the heart. Everything that we have ever felt, seen, touched, smelled and heard is also there. This is why we are admonished to keep our heart with all diligence, for out of it are the issues of life.
The heart is like a willing servant; it registers every impression, or decision that comes from our conscious mind or the intellect. And it carries it out to its minutest detail. The heart is the subjective part of the mind, which means it does whatever it is told without questioning or reasoning. The heart, which is our subconscious, is where we express our emotions, it is in the heart that we believe. However it is not the thoughts that we are conscious of that create our reality, but the thoughts that we believe in. Whatever ideas or suggestions that we accept as truth, though they may not be true according to the Law of God, the heart believes it as our 'reality' and executes it.
If you believe life has ups and downs, you will experience ups and downs. If you believe in the reality of sickness, you will experience sickness in your body, if you believe in the reality of scarcity and lack you will attract poverty in your life and affairs; according to your faith be it done unto you.
Our heart is not only subjected to our own beliefs but it is also affected by the race belief in sin, sickness and death. This is why we must not conform ourselves to the pattern of this world, but instead we must set our hearts and minds on things above. And no this is not suggesting that we stare at the sky, but to rather seek to establish the kingdom of God within us.
The appropriation of divine truths and the incorporation of divine principles in our consciousness is the establishment of the Kingdom of God within Man. This takes place through the workings of our own mind through our inherent ability to choose, accept and believe In God, In Spirit, and In Things invisible. In doing so we acquire the spiritual knowledge that will heal the heart and set it free from the erroneous thought patterns that have kept it enslaved over the years. It is true that our mind controls our life, but we are in control of our mind.
Therefore,today let us guard our hearts with all diligence. Today let us choose the kind of thoughts we want to entertain in our hearts. If a certain thought or idea is negative or destructive let us immediately cast it out as one would a thief who had come to rob his house of its valued possessions. Today let us refuse to believe in the reality of sickness, lack or any other negative suggestions that may arise in our conscious mind. Rather let us affirm the Truth according to the Law of God.
Today affirm who you are according to God Mind and not according to your own mind or the world collective consciousness.
"Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things".
P.S. Anxiety, fear, depression, condemnation, guilt, confusion, unhappiness, disharmony and the like are the symptoms of a heart that is sick. The main sickness of the heart is due to the false belief in separation…(to be continued…stay tune for part 2 tomorrow)
