There is a saying that many, often cynical people use "Seeing is Believing", and therein lies one of the major factors holding people back from their true, infinite potential.
Most people tend to react to what they see, so they see it first and then react to it. For example, a person might see debt, an old unreliable car, a body that is 30 pounds heavier than it should be, and then they react, usually in the wrong way.
Such reactions, as a result of "seeing first" are usually negative, including but not limited to worry, fear and despair, not realising that they are attracting more of the same, resulting in a spiral until the person often hits rock bottom with sometimes final results.
The fact is however most people have this completely the wrong way around, and therefore the results are the wrong way around.
The saying should be "Believing is Seeing".
In creating our own own reality, the reality we prefer out of choice, we must first create a "Thought Form", just as the Logos did in the beginning, and bring that Thought Form into manifestation by "Believing" in the process, and having "Faith" in the process and in the infinite powers of our Subconscious Mind.
"Faith" and "Belief" are cornerstones of the Bible, but alas the true meanings of "Faith" and "Belief" have been interpreted to mean an abstract "belief in God" or to have "blind faith" in a deity called "God" and Jesus on the basis that God is a jealous deity wanting people to know how great "he" is for creating us and our planet for our enjoyment, and who exacts a fiery vengeance upon all those who do not respect what "he" has "given" us and conform.
In fact God is not jealous for the simple reason we Are God in every sense; for God to exact vengeance on someone for not believing in him, would be the same as chopping off one off your own finger, because that finger did not "believe" in the rest of your body. In this way many people are cutting off, or more specifically greatly restricting their own connection with God, The First Cause, The Source of all that Is.
The truth is; "Believing is Seeing".
If we wish to manifest a need into our experiential reality, we must first "see" it in our Mind, thus creating a "seed" Thought Form. We must then nurture that Thought Form, with a strong belief that it exists, and faith in the infinite powers of our own Subconscious Mind with Its direct access to the Universal Mind in order to sustain it, until such time as it grows strong enough to manifest where we can have that particular need fulfilled and
can believe it by virtue of experiencing it.
On the subject of "Thought Form Seeds" as with any seeds that we so, it is crucial to keep them fed, watered and generally cared for.
And he said, So is the kingdom of God, as if a man should cast seed into the ground. And should sleep, and rise night and day, and the seed should spring and grow up, he knoweth not how. For the earth bringeth forth fruit of herself; first the blade, then the ear, after that the full corn in the ear. But when the fruit is brought forth, immediately he putteth in the sickle, because the harvest is come. Mark 4:26-29
When correctly decoded, this parable of Jesus is extremely powerful in teaching these truths.
The "seed" is the seed "Thought Form" sown in the fertile ground of our Subconscious Mind. Once the seed is sown it will grow if allowed to do so including nurturing it with Faith and Belief in the process. He goes on to say "we knoweth not how", because like the Earth, the Subconscious Mind, including the Universal Mind, the Logos, will continue towards the manifestation of the Thought form into a fully mature plant, our desire. Even though we cannot see the seed growing under the Earth, a gardener has faith that it is growing, and belief that it will soon sprout and grow into a
beautiful plant. No gardener would sow seeds in his or her garden while at the same time not having faith in the process or belief they will not grow an flourish. If a gardener did believe the seed would not grow or have faith in the process, the seed would not sprout.
Jesus then goes on to say, once the Thought Form has manifested then it is time to "reap the harvest" and enjoy its fruits because the harvest that sprang from your "seed", your Thought Form has finally come, and you can now release the nurturing of the thought form by constant focus, imagination, and faith, because you see it in your experiential reality. You Believed and eventually you Saw.
So you see it is crucial to have faith in this process, and in particular faith in the infinite power of our own Subconscious Mind and its intimate connection with the Universal Mind to manifest all of our needs, wishes and desires.
So Believing truly is Seeing. Sow the seeds of your needs in the fertile ground of your Subconscious Mind, Believing and having absolute unconditional Faith in the process, nurture those seeds with constant thought on your desire as if it is true Now, beyond all doubt, constantly giving the seed life by dwelling on the truth of it in your Mind frequently, knowing it to be so, and soon enough you will see the fruits of your thoughts in your experiential reality; every time.
