You may know of Cynthia Stafford from hearing how she manifested her lottery win of 112 million dollars.

It turns out that she has a whole lot to say about having faith, positive thinking, etc.

We compiled a bunch of bullet points of things she has said, and categorized them into her commandments, what she does, and her insights:

Cynthia’s Commandments:

You gotta be really clear when you say you’re gonna do what you plan to do.

Be positive, because what you put out, will come back, always.

The bible says to forgive your enemies, you do have to forgive if you expect to receive your blessings.

Always speak things with positive energy, you have to feel it strongly.

Be your best cheerleader, cheer yourself on, see yourself as like, the best on this planet.

Don’t have people around you that wanna pull you down, because they will do that, you just have to look at them and say ‘they’re not on the same level that I’m on, and God bless you’, in fact, say prayers for them, and keep moving on. Release them, let em go, and keep moving, and have a smile on your face.

If you say you want something for free, be that, you want something right now, say you want it now, don’t put it off into the future, cuz the mind hears you, and the subconscious mind doesn’t take jokes.

We have to be careful of what we say.

You have to be that person to say ‘I’m gonna be the next star, or whatever’.

You have to choose what you want to be, and the mind will open those doors for you, and so will spirit.

When you wanna manifest something, don’t ask how, just put it out there, don’t ask how it’s gonna happen.

Be prepared, study wealth, study wealthy people.

Make friends with wealth.

Become comfortable with wealth, when you’re uncomfortable with wealth, it won’t stay, it’s an energy.

Never give up, never listen to no, never listen to can’t.

I tell people ‘don’t buy a ticket and say I probably won’t win’, yeah you’re not gonna win.

You have to believe that you’re going to be the one to receive it.

What She Does:

For manifesting – I visualize, I see it, I first see what it is that I want (cuz as you see it, so shall it be)

I visualize all the time, I visualized all the time that I was gonna be holding a check with $112,000,000.00 written across it, I even visualized myself wearing my little favorite green top.

I remember thinking: ‘I’m gonna wear that top, I’m gonna hold that check, and I’m gonna be so happy’, cuz that which you put your strongest feeling into, has to manifest, it has to, good or bad, so why not manifest your best, and that’s what I strive to do all the time

I strive to think positive, at ALL times, even when things don’t seem so positive

I switch my thoughts, we have to in life, because if we don’t, those thoughts that are bugging you, will have a way of manifesting in your life.

I just started saying I’m wealthy, I started singing it.

I say I’m happy.

I always strive to be in the positive.

I don’t allow the negative around me.

I wake up every day and I say ‘Today is a good day’

I’m constantly saying that I’m blessed.

Every breath I take, I’m saying that I’m powerful.

I say that I’m healthy.

I say to myself: ‘I’m the most brilliant person on the planet’, because what you say, is what your mind believes.

I don’t give up.

Whatever it is you want in life, you have to see yourself there, and that’s what I did.

I know that if it wasn’t for keeping the faith and the belief – I kept believing it, I kept seeing myself holding that check, and knowing that it was gonna happen.

I visualized it, and did a little meditation, and $112,000,000.00 came to me, and I said ‘OK, that’s what I’ll go for’.

$112,000,000.00 was a number I just randomly picked, I said: ‘well, that sounds good’, I wrote it down on a sheet of paper, meditated on it until I no longer felt the need to meditate, and it happened.

It changed my life tremendously, I’m able to do the things I’ve always wanted.

After my brother died, I was about to lose my home, I had just lost the kids back to the system – I had a choice whether to be positive, or to go into depression, and I knew I needed to be positive – a month later, Mother’s Day, May 11, 2007, I won.

I just kinda stood and cried for a minute, and thought: ‘OK, this is awesome’, I didn’t faint, though I kinda felt like I was close to it.

I visualized it, I wrote the number down (I think that’s real important to write your goals down), so I said ‘well, I’m gonna set this as a goal for myself’.

I just wrote $112,000,000.00 on a sheet of paper, and put the paper on my wall, and would look at the paper all the time, and just knew that if I kept seeing it, believing it, it will happen.

When the lottery (I call it the gift) came through, we split it because it was part of all of our efforts.

I am a believer that we can have whatever it is we want in life, and I wanted to have more, I wanted to show the children that you can have more, that you can have whatever it is that you believe in, and so I set about the task of invoking it

Cynthia’s Insights:

How we think with our minds is so important

Our minds are very powerful – As you think, so it is

I don’t watch negative TV, I only watch news when I think it’s pertinent, because those things you put on your mind, have a way of showing up.

As you think, so shall it be

After losing the kids, what I remembered was, I have to be positive, have to stay in that mindset

What I’ve realized in life, everything just comes when you need it, and sometimes it just comes serendipitously

God always knows when we need things, and we just have to trust, and let go, you just have to have that trust (that’s what I had to do, on my faith walk, to win the lottery and help me get to where I am today).

Whatever it is that you want, the sooner it is that you understand that… I may not have much right now, that don’t mean anything, because I’m wealthy, the moment you start saying to yourself ‘I am wealthy’, wealth comes to you.

Wealth is an energy, just like poverty is an energy, when you say you’re poor, it will circulate in your life.

I’m constantly being blessed.

Satan is out there to make us believe we are not powerful, and can’t have the things that we want.

We’re not here to be less than, we’re here to be the best.

As you say it, so shall it be – that’s what I say all the time.

God can only be in your life when you allow Him to be in your life.

It is great to understand the power of the mind, and how powerful the mind can be.

What you say, is what you will receive.

At first it wasn’t easy to decide what to do with the money, I was like a kid in the candy store.

Wealth will stay around you when you say you’re wealthy.

When you give yourself, you’re always gonna be rewarded, ALWAYS.

The way to win is to visualize.

I’m a believer that if you give of yourself, you receive.

For winners: ‘breathe, take your time making financial decisions, don’t rush into anything, just take your time to experience what’s happening because your life is definitely going to change.

Winning the lottery can open up many opportunities, but again, take your time to enjoy what has been given.

Magazine: Does your spiritual practice involve prayer and meditation, or is it more a state of being?

Tolle: It is more a state of being. I don’t pray for anything, but I have used affirmations in the past a few times. They are really a bit more like realizations in that on some level they have already happened.

For instance, before I wrote The Power of Now, I had a vision that I had already written the book and that it was affecting the world. I had a sense there was already a book somehow in existence. I drew a circle on a piece of paper and it said “book.”

Then I wrote something about the effect the book had on the world, how it influenced my life and other people’s lives, and how it came to be translated into many languages affecting hundreds of thousands of people.

But I didn’t draw it because I wanted it to happen —it was more like I was writing down on this piece of paper what I felt was already a reality on some level.

This is what I think people would call true manifestation and visualization.

It doesn’t really work powerfully if you think you need to bring something about or attract it to yourself. It works most powerfully when you realize that it is already a reality on the unseen level. It’s already there.

And when you fully realize it’s already a reality, you feel the power of it. Then the feeling you have when you look at a treasure map or a vision board is no different from the feeling you have when it actually comes into manifestation.

Whats the difference for someone that immediately feels what I am saying?

First you need a core belief that life is on my side. The universe wants for me what I want for myself. I am worthy and capable of the states and qualities that I desire. Of the freedom that I desire.

There is no place in this universe for I cannot. You can create the illusion of I cannot.

Knowing life is on your side, know that you cannot fail, you cannot go wrong, you cannot make a mistake. You can only learn, you can only expand, you can only notice that something is not working out for you. Therefore, fine-tune what it is you do desire.

Give up your thoughts that think they know what this is all about.

Know that life is on your side. Know that you’re worthy because there is only one (source) and you are its creation. You are worthy of everything you desire and everything you desire is immediately activated in your consciousness and it tries naturally and effortless to bring into your life all the things that you are inspired to experience. The universe wants what you want for yourself. Because there is no difference between what the universe wants and what you truly desire. Its the same one flow. It is the universe, it is the greater self that makes you feel desire to begin with. It wants to express itself as efficiently as it can. So it feeds you desires that you are able to attract and experience. But it needs to respect your free will. If you insist that you are unworthy, that what you are desiring is lacking right now, that worthiness of what you desire is lacking right now, you will attract more reflections that will only continue to anchor in the belief that everything is missing right now. But if you surrender your arrogance, as if you don’t know who you are, what you are worthy of, what you are capable of, as if you have no clue how limited or how expansive you actually are; and they only make you feel seperate from all that you are, and let go to the abundance that is here right now, the infinity that is surrounding you. Then things will effortlessly show up without any work whatsoever, without any struggle whatsoever. It does not require anything on your part except to know your natural state, of infinite worth.

Feel that you are loved, know that the universe is on your side. To know that there is only one and all that you desire is what all that is desires of itself.

You cannot go wrong, you cannot make mistakes, you cannot be lacking anything. If you can trust in this, enjoy the moment, the best feeling state that you have access to every moment, bumping it up, feeling more amazed, and more humbled, and more loved, and more worthy and more receiving, and more…..infinite.
More at ease. More confident. More convinced. More cleansed, more resistance free, more forgiven. If you feel all these things, you will see, you will be convinced, you will see as life sees, you will act as life acts, you will feel as life feels, and you will bring into your experience what is already there to being with anyway.

When you let go of all resistance, then the thought I am unworthy, I am incapable, I am limited, will go as well, and as soon it goes, your vision is cleansed, and you see as your higher self has always already seen you. And you will feel as your higher self has always already felt.

The only thing preventing all you desire from entering your consciousness is the arrogant belief, that you are separate, that you are lacking, that you are unworthy.

Let life flow through you a little bit more. You have always been taken care of but not by your arrogance. Not by what your parents taught you; none of that has kept you safe over the years.

It’s not that hard. It’s the easiest thing you can do. All you need to do is be willing to be done with the stupidity that has kept you small and in pain. To manage your life is the struggle.

Give yourself a break. Try it out. If this doesn’t work for you in the timespan of 48hrs, I will resign. Give it a try. Just relax. Within 48hrs you will achieve miraculous manifestations, you will be amazed and at the same time not, at your capacity to attract what you desire. You might ask yourself, how did I do that? But you won’t care because that’s another way to struggle. Asking how is another way to build up arrogance.

Give it a try, or in a way stop trying altogether and let it be done for you. Just relax. Make your only effort, to feel no effort. Knowing that all effort fails you. When you see very clearly in your conscious consciousness that all the effort has only failed you – (not passion, not inspiration, not motivation, not ambition, not dreaming, not having visions, not being excited) – but all effort, all feelings of struggle; have only been you swimming upstream against your own current of abundance. And freedom and joy, and infinite worth. So let your only effort be, let your only maintenance be to not feel any control. To completely surrender all control. And let the ease of the river of your higher self show you, in the timespan of 48hrs, confirm to you, prove to you, make you convinced of the fact that ease is the creator of what you want, and struggle is the creator of what you do not want.

Ease is the way to know yourself in ways that you want, expansive ways. And struggle and effort and self-judgement and blame, thinking you know so well, what you should be thinking, feeling, what you should have done and felt; only leads to the realizations of yourself that you don’t want to experience.

Ironically you have to give up trying to know, not wanting to know, but trying to know. When you simply trust in the natural timing of ease, when you trust in the power that is, within the ease of being here now and maintaining only non-maintenance, efforting only to feel no effort. When you let that ease take over, ease will take over your life and the manifestations will be brought to you within the timespan of 48hrs, will blow your puny little mind.

When you blow your puny little arrogant mind, you will know love. You will know infiniteness, and you will know more of who you are, and you will know it in an instant. It will be simple. It will not be a process of endless, endless, endless self-discovery. The absolute knowingness of you who you are, which is unconditional light, which is infinite worth, which is endless love, which is perfect forgiveness, always, all the time, already accomplished here and now. Timeless perfection is what you are. You will know that instantly. Without time lag.

In that instant of total let-go, when you die to yourself when you give up what you think you know so well, which has never served you for even a second; you will know who it is that you are. You will know bliss. You will feel it. Instantaneously, you will be unable to go back to your previous level of stupidity. You will be more and more abundant; you will match the energy and generate a reality that matches the dream that you knew you came here to create and mold out of this physical clay that we call physical energy. Which it is not. It is an illusion. That’s why it can change within the timeframe of 48hrs.

If you try to strive your way into ease, if you try to judge and blame yourself, into self-love, then you will probably not see the results that I am talking about.

But if you let your arrogance die completely, and give life a chance for 48hrs to take care of your life for you. What can happen in 48hrs of not managing your life? See what happens…

You will feel so safe, in the entirety of the energy that is you, not just the physical body, you will feel at one with the floor, you’ll feel at one with the partner that is abusing you, you’ll feel at one with your parents, you’ll feel at one with the dead; you’ll feel at one with all that is.

This reality is all dreamed up by you by your higher self I AM consciousness. Your body is not your physical body; your body is all energy, the whole world.

So when you give up protecting yourself, the vibration that you give off is ease, love, confidence, conviction, faith, trust. And life, your body can only respond to that, your environment, your circumstances, which is you, which is your energy, can only respond to that vibration, a reflection of peace, love, joy and safety. And a sense of union with it.

Its like laying a warm pond, with no critters, nothing that can harm you and laying there for 15minutes knowing nothing can harm you. You will feel that safe in every situation in your life. When facing bankruptcy, or facing a bear.

See no more point in maintaining your struggle, your armor, your arrogance, your lack beliefs. It will disappear, and you will know on an unconditional level, for yourself, conclusive of all other beings. You will know the ultimate safety. You will feel perfect, yet ready for more.

So prioritize the vibrational feeling you have in this moment because it will determine the next few hours of your physical experience. You are constantly creating your future.

How can you not be safe if all there is, is more of you? More of your high self-loving you.
Let all sense of unworthiness slide off of you.

Don’t do anything that does not feel good. Don’t believe in anything that does not feel good. Don’t think a single thought that does not feel good. Don’t entertain a single belief that does not feel good. All that is arrogance. Anything that does not feel good is arrogance and only arises so that you can let go of it, not so you can perpetuate it. When something arises that does not feel good, embrace it by feeling good about not feeling good.
It’s a signal that you are allowed; you are given permission from the highest source in the universe to let go of it safely. If something feels bad, it’s the higher self-letting you know that it is safe to let go of this thought. It’s safe to let go of this belief. Its safe to not do this right now.

You will create abundance by following the stream, of ease, that’s why it feels easeful.

Letting go of what does not feel good cleanses your misperception and into alignment with your higher self, and you become more enlightened. TA-DA, you become more awake, TA-DA, you feel more empowered TA-DA, you feel more inseparable from all that is, TA-DA.

All the things you desire are effortless and can be achieved completely and fully, to the fullest, of what’s relevant for you to experience right now…within the next 48hrs.

The degree with you are ready to trust, is the degree to which you’ll accelerate how deeply, how intimately, you’ll know your indestructible connection to your true self. How deeply do you dare to trust over the next 48hrs?

How bored to death are you with arrogance? Thinking you know better than this infinite power. Are you keeping your molecules together spinning on this earth, going 1600lk/m an hour? Let alone the spinning motion of the galaxy. Are you doing all that? If so, go ahead to continue to be arrogant, because then you’re right. If you do not keep your molecules together, every single nanosecond, if you are not the one actively, consciously managing your breath, your heart beat, if you are not managing the rotation of this milky way galaxy right now, if you’re not consciously maintaining that, then you’re not consciously maintaining anything; but the way that you feel and interpret all that has been created by your higher consciousness. So let your higher consciousness take care of you as well. As it takes care of the spinning of the galaxy.

Let in the goodness that we are. Let infinite intelligence give us what we want. Because we’re worthy of it and we desire it, because it desires it for itself, through all portions of itself. That’s how it attracts what it wants.

Remember infinite worth. Its logical. You’re not keeping your body together right now. Your trillions of cells are not flying off into space. You’re not managing gravity. Which means you’re not that intelligent and vast. Which means its relevant for you to explore this level of consciousness. And you cannot do that if you really believe that you have to take care of yourself. Trust instead. Have faith instead. Feel expanded instead.

Why isn’t life on my side? Because you’re not on your side…

All you have to manage is feeling good. It is the only task that you’ve been given. Feel as receptive of infinite abundance as you can possibly be. Feel as trusting as you can be. That is your only job as a human being that makes sense for you to have.

Let go of anything that pops up that feels tense or struggle. Don’t even go into it for the next 48hrs, as soon as a thought comes up that feels bad, feels like a struggle, feels like it comes from you thinking you know what’s going to happen and what you need to do in order for it to happen, in order to keep yourself safe because you’re ‘managing all your molecules’ so you should also manage your job (haha).. Just instantaneously remember that it has never served you, it is rooted in stupidity, not intelligence; contraction, not infinite abundance. Then choose the opposite (sigh of relief). And by simply already deciding to let go of it at the first moment you notice it, that already puts you in the state of abundant joy.

If you catch yourself in that moment where you think you know better than the infinite, then you can bounce back up into alignment. And you can say, I almost went down the rabbit hole.

Be grateful that negative feeling reminded you to be conscious once again.

Remember that ease creates what you want, somehow, magically, just let it do its job. Being in ease will attract everything you need to get done and do and have created for yourself. Without having thought you knew better than the mechanics that keep every galaxy of billions of stars and beings together, you not questioning that authority, simply trusting that the way it communicates to you what is the most efficient way to go about things, is what feels the easiest, the most joyful, the most pleasurable, the most exciting.

What truly gives me joy in this moment, what feels completely aligned in this moment, what do I really want to do. Somehow magically everything gets done.

I’m not saying you won’t be doing anything, but it will be out of joy, it will be inspired. Effortless, spontaneous, effortless action.

Honor what you desire, otherwise you’re not honoring the union that creates all that there is. Honor what you feel. Honor what you want. Honor what feels amazing.

Everything is already in your field, already accomplished. Allow expansion.

Love yourself. Fuck it. Give it a shot. For the first time ever, give it a shot. For the next 48hrs.

The moment you assume it, all of your limiting beliefs, all of the hard facts of life, all of the evidences of your senses rush to fight your new assumption.

At first you feel the bliss of having it, but soon you start to doubt it, then fear comes and you are back at square one.

All of the teachings of LOA lack this simple step. How do you dare?

First you must accept that everything that you want already exists within your consciousness. You are not creating anything new. You are the spirit and your spirit is all. but in your physical reality, you only get a small piece of this all, that you consciousness has accepted to be true. Your ONLY job is to convince your consciousness that you are already what you desire to be.

There is only the eternal NOW and the eternal ‘here’ where ever you go and whenever it is, you only experience it NOW and HERE.

When Neville says ‘DARE’ to assume it, it means whatever your current life situation is, drop it, from this moment on, think from the state of your wish fulfilled and take the consciousness of this wish fulfilled with you in every ‘NOW and HERE’.

No matter WHAT your senses tell you, no matter what news you get, no matter what people tell you, no matter what happens, you hijack your consciousness and fill it with one and only thing: ‘I already AM what I want to be’. Not tomorrow, not next week, not anytime in the future, but NOW.

Do this for the next 24 hrs, every ‘now and here’ be in your consciousness what you desire to be, and see how EVERY cell in your body is filled with mind blowing bliss. Do NOT look for proof of your wish fulfillment, set this as your ONLY GOAL. Feel the bliss in every moment for the next 24 hrs. Do NOT fear anything, do not doubt anything, live as though it has already happened.

Man’s greatest need is to believe in himself. In what he is doing. And in his ultimate destiny.
Self reliance, or self confidence, finds its greatest outlet when it is accompainied by a belief, that the real self of man is God. And that with God, all things are possible.
The bible gives the key to building spiritual self reliance. But without faith, it is impossible to please him, for he that cometh to God, must first believe that God is, and that he’s a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.
You can accomplish little in this world without faith. You can have the same abiding faith (as the laws of chemistry) of your own mind. Which are the same yesterday, today and forever.
A man is living in the dark ages who thinks the principals of chemistry and mathematics are different from the principals and laws operating in his own mind.
We know for a fact that think good, good follows, think evil and evil follows.
Think of success, realize you were born to succeed and to win, for the infinite cannot fail. Picture yourself successful, happy and free and you will be.
WHATEVER you think and feel as true, in your conscious mind, is embodied in your subconscious and comes to pass into your experience.
That’s the law of mind. Undeviating, unmuteable, timeless and changeless.
FEAR IS FAITH IN THE WRONG THING. FEAR IS FAITH UPSIDE DOWN.
What do you beleive in? To believe is to accept something as true.
The first step in building self reliance or self confidence is the believe in that infinite power within you. All the processes of your body are controlled by that infinite intelligence.
So believe in that infinite power within you. Recognize and KNOW that the self of you is God. That’s your higher self.
The second step is to commune regularly with this infinite presence and power. And have a vision, realizing you’ll go where your vision is. And your vision is what your mentally looking at. What your giving attention and feeling to.
Let your vision be on abundance, right action, inspiration and divine guidance.
What difference does it make if you have floundered and failed many times, now that you know the divine presence indwells you. And the infinite presence and the infinite power and the life principal is the God presence within you.
Wake up that sleeping giant within you, trust that creative power within you. Moreso than you’ve ever trusted your human father or mother.
When the thought comes to you, ‘I cannot do this’, affirm: But the divine presence can. It’s the infinite presence, its the infinite power, there’s nothing to oppose it or challenge it, its almighty.
look at all the difficulties and obstructions realize and know, and say boldly to yourself: Infinite intelligence and infinite power knows no obstructions, delays or impediments.
You will find your obstructions and challenges will be turned to opportunties. Your fear will turn to faith. And your doubt will turn into certainty.

I was talking with Esmeralda recently, and I brought up a couple of examples of where Jesus talks about forgiveness, and particularly, their placement within the context where it was mentioned.

For some reason this just occurred to me as I was thinking about The Lord’s Prayer.

He mentions forgiveness immediately after he sayd ‘Give us this Day our Daily Bread’, and further mentions it after the Lord’s Prayer.

Two of the most famous, often quoted quotes from the Bible are The Lord’s Prayer, and parts from Mark 11.

Something i just noticed about them both is how immediately after Jesus offers prayers for asking for our needs or desires, He immediately talks about forgiveness afterwards.

In the Lord’s Prayer, here is what i am referring to, in Matthew 6:11-6:12:

11 Give us this day our daily bread.

12 And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors.

Then, after The Lord’s Prayer, Jesus continues on with this point:

14 For if ye forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you:

15 But if ye forgive not men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.

Then there is something similar in Mark 11:24-11:26:

24 Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them.

25 And when ye stand praying, forgive, if ye have ought against any: that your Father also which is in heaven may forgive you your trespasses.

26 But if ye do not forgive, neither will your Father which is in heaven forgive your trespasses.

 

It is interesting how this correlation seems to be made between asking for anything you desire, and your daily bread, which some say is basically the same thing, and then immediately recommending forgiveness.

So there must be a correlation between the two.

This also lead me to look into the definition, according to The Bible, or trespasses.

I found this from Matthew 5:21-5:26:

21 Ye have heard that it was said of them of old time, Thou shalt not kill; and whosoever shall kill shall be in danger of the judgment:

22 But I say unto you, That whosoever is angry with his brother without a cause shall be in danger of the judgment: and whosoever shall say to his brother, Raca, shall be in danger of the council: but whosoever shall say, Thou fool, shall be in danger of hell fire.

23 Therefore if thou bring thy gift to the altar, and there rememberest that thy brother hath ought against thee;

24 Leave there thy gift before the altar, and go thy way; first be reconciled to thy brother, and then come and offer thy gift.

25 Agree with thine adversary quickly, whiles thou art in the way with him; lest at any time the adversary deliver thee to the judge, and the judge deliver thee to the officer, and thou be cast into prison.

26 Verily I say unto thee, Thou shalt by no means come out thence, till thou hast paid the uttermost farthing.

I think there is a bit of a definition in there.

‘when you say I am, you are announcing the presence of the living God within you’
You are declaring yourself to be.
I am that I am.
the word THAT indicates, that which you want to be, that which you’d like to be.
And the second I am, means the answered prayer. Achievement, fulfilment of your desire.
you feel yourself to be what you long to be.
Whatever you attach to I AM you become. Whatever you attach to I AM with feeling, with understanding, you will become that very thing.
I am in my true place. I am doing whart I love to do. I am divnely happy. I am divinely prospered.
I AM means awareness, being, life principle. Unconditioned consciousness.
take your attention from your problem, lack, limitation, focus your attention on your ideal, your goal, your objective, claim yourself to be what you long to be, rejoice and feel it, then, the old condition will pass away, then you will experience the joy of the answered prayer.

You’re saved from lack, limitations of all kinds, why? because you’re aware of the God presence within. And your capacity to contact it. When you call on it, it answers you. It will be with you in trouble, it will set you on high. Because you hath known its name. Its name is it’s nature., the way it works.

Your desire is a gift from God, realization is your savior.
* realization of your desire is your savior.

So the answer is always within you. And the saving consciousness is within you. Because God indwells you.

stand still and see the salvation of the lord, meaning, to quiet the wheels of your mind. Call upon this infinite intelligence which responds to you.

HAVE A DEEP CONVICTION THAT ALL IS WELL, IN SPITE ALL THE REASONS WHY THE CONDITION SEEMS TO BE IMPOSSIBLE!

remain unmoved, live in the atmosphere of victory.
And victory will be yours
having seen the end, you have willed a means to the end. realize and know that all the power of God will flow to that focal point of attention

remember, I want to stress this: whatever you attach to I AM with feeling you become.

seek ye first the kingdom of God and his righteousness and all things shall be added unto you. What does that mean? The kingdom of heaven or the Kingdom of God is within yourself, its your consciousness, its your awareness of being, its your mind, your thoughts, your imagination, the invisible part of you, your feelings, your beliefs.

Your state of consciousness is what you think and believe. What you feel, it is what you imagine yourself to be. Therefore, your state of consciousness is whatever you think, feel, believe, and give mental consent to. All these things are dramatized on the screen of space.
Your consciousness is the only God, they only creative power.
It’s your thought and feeling, which create your destiny

You first therefore go within, your own mind, your own consciousness, there you claim to be what you want to be.
And that spirit within will honor, validate, and execute it

Go within, shut the door to your senses, pray to your father which is in secret, and the father is the creative power, its the life principal within you
the thought and the manifestation are one arent they. Therefore thoughts are things, what you feel you attract, what you imagine you become.
therefore of course, whatever you want, you go to consciousness for it. thats the meaning of seek ye first, the kingdom of heaven, OMGGGGG
your concept of yourself determines your future.
whenever you say I am, remember you are announcing the presence of the living God, within you

Realize that you can now claim what you want to be, you can now claim to possess what you long to possess. You can now claim that you’re doing what you long to do. You can live in that mental attitude, which will gradually sink down by osmosis from your conscious to your subconscious.

It will gradually become a conviction as you nourish it and sustain it. Then your limitation will disintegrate.
Then you will rise from the ashes like the phoenix, because I must die to what I am before I can live to what I long to be.
And claim that the wholeness of God is flowing through you
Take your attention away from the multitude of reasons why you cant achieve something. And focus your attention on your ideal,. Nourish and sustain it.
And the answer will come. Keep on keeping on. and the day will break and all the shadows will flee away

This quote from the 46th Psalm crosses my mind from time to time, and I like to ponder its meaning.

On the surface, it seems to mean to remain calm, be at peace, in a meditative state, and just trust God.

But the more I dig in to different religious and spiritual ideas and study them, I ponder if the meaning of this is towards oneself, as in realizing how we are created in the image of God.

These two pieces of scripture add to this concept that crosses my mind:

John 10:34: Jesus answered them, Is it not written in your law, I said, Ye are gods?

and

Psalm 82:6: I have said, Ye are gods; and all of you are children of the most High.

These make me wonder if this is an inward knowing, essentially saying to oneself ‘I am God’.

The more I ponder that, and study scripture etc., the more I lean towards that meaning of it, which I think would really change the meaning of it for many people, although at the same time, that is almost considered a radical concept in the mainstream, so maybe others do perceive that as the meaning, but also have the wisdom to keep it to themselves.

Then I wonder about the Be Still part. I have been wrestling with some anxieties in my life lately, and have been thinking about this, and wondering if it means to literally be still. in my case, it could mean stop taking certain actions out of fear and anxiety, trying to fix your situation.

You could also interpret as ‘stillness of mind’, or peace of mind.

Anyways, I am glad we started this website, since I know this crosses my mind from time to time, and it will be nice to have this post here so I can look back on it.

I was trying to recollect one of the quotes from the OM meditation by Dr. Wayne Dyer, as he was quoting the 12 ways of realizing God by Meher Baba, and found it.

I may add some of the others, but this is the one that I was trying to recollect:

Selfless Service:

Have the quality of selfless service, unaffected by results, similar to that of the sun, which serves the world by shining on all of creation, on the grass in the field, on the birds in the air, on the beasts in the forest, on all mankind with its sinner and its saint, its rich and its poor, unconscious of their attitude towards it, then you will win God.

 

I looked it up, and on avatermeherbaba.org it is actually called ’12 Ways Of Realizing Me’.

  1. LONGING … If you experience that same longing and thirst for Union with Me as one who has been lying for days in the hot sun of the Sahara experiences the longing for water, then you will realize Me.
  2. PEACE OF MIND … If you have the peace of a frozen lake, then too, you will realize Me.
  3. HUMILITY … If you have the humility of the earth which can be molded into any shape, then you will know Me.
  4. DESPERATION … If you experience the desperation that causes a man to commit suicide and you feel that you cannot live without seeing Me, then you will see Me.
  5. FAITH … If you have the complete faith that Kalyan had for his Master, in believing it was night, although it was day, because his Master said so, then you will know Me.
  6. FIDELITY … If you have the fidelity that the breath has in giving you company, even without your constantly feeling it, till the end of your life, that both in happiness and in suffering gives you company and never turns against you, then you will know Me.
  7. CONTROL THROUGH LOVE … When your love for Me drives away your lust for the things of the senses, then you realize Me.
  8. SELFLESS SERVICE … If you have the quality of selfless service unaffected by results, similar to that of the sun which serves the world by shining on all creation, on the grass in the field, on the birds in the air, on the beasts in the forest, on all mankind with its sinner and its saint, its rich and its poor, unconscious of their attitude towards it, then you will win Me.
  9. RENUNCIATION … If you renounce for Me everything physical, mental and spiritual, then you have Me.
  10. OBEDIENCE … If your obedience is spontaneous, complete and natural as the light is to the eye or smell is to the nose, then you come to Me.
  11. SURRENDER … If your surrender to Me is as wholehearted as that of one, who, suffering from insomnia, surrenders to sudden sleep without fear of being lost, then you have Me.
  12. LOVE … If you have that love for Me that St. Francis had for Jesus, then not only will you realize Me, but you will please Me.
