Again though; a word of caution here as with "faith". "Believe" does not mean some abstract belief in God or Jesus or any other external agency, it means belief in who we are and the powers we accordingly have available to us through our own Mind in particular subconscious Mind, powers that are infinite and unlimited, powers that are only restricted by the ability to believe in those powers.
As Jesus said;
"Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you".-- Matthew 7:7
We have confirmation of these truths in this passage:
"Thou shalt decree a thing, and it shall be established unto thee: and the light shall shine upon thy ways". -- Job 22:28.
What this means is simple; once you have experienced the power of The Law of Attraction by utilising Universal principles, then you will know beyond doubt it is real and true, and will go forth in joy in realisation of being a Divine creator. This is why it is important to achieve your first success; when you do your life will change and your life will rejoice from that point on in the knowledge that you really do control your own reality and your own destiny.
As Jesus said:
"Go thy way, thy faith hath made thee whole" -- Mark 10:52
And again; "faith" does not mean in religious terms; faith means true faith in the knowledge of our true reality and our infinite powers of the Subconscious Mind as an integral aspect of the Universal Mind to manage our own life and destiny.
It is important to reconcile the union of conscious and Subconscious Minds.
Very often the the ego or the conscious Mind will object to your use of The Law of Attraction because it prefers to be in control, and will want to convince you that it is all fantasy.
An important part of progression is to subjugate the ego completely. The first step however is to silence your conscious Mind when using The Law of Attraction, because your first success will quell the doubt of the ego.
"If two of you shall agree on earth as touching anything that they shall ask, it shall be done for them of my Father which is in heaven". -- Matthew 18:19
The "two of you" referred to in this passage are the conscious and Subconscious Minds. Before anything can be achieved, both need to be in harmony. The Subconscious Mind is always in harmony and never argues about anything, so it is the conscious Mind, the ego, that needs to be convinced.
The Law of Attraction and other Universal principles are always in immutable operation. Every thought, every emotion is a cause with a corresponding effect whether intended or not. So if your thoughts towards others are not of a positive nature, or worse you wish them harm in some way, the result will be such that whatever you thought of others will be attracted into your own experience.
"Judge not, that ye be not judged. For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again". -- Matthew 7:1-2
The fact is this; from a purely temporal perspective you cannot know why a person is who they are, or why they are acting in the way they do. Judging people by your own standards, expectations or prejudices is a serious mistake, and one which has to manifest in your own experience in the same way sooner or later.
This is the meaning of "karma" which is not a punishment and reward system, but rather the immutable, perfect operation of the Universe through which we learn by experience.
Very often the emotion that blocks people achieving their desires is fear in one of its numerous manifestations. As the saying goes "there is nothing to fear but fear itself". Fear is a destructive emotion alongside its close relative "worry". There is nothing to fear because we all control, manage and create our own reality.
If you are experiencing fear, then the best action, rather than fight it, is to ask your Subconscious Mind to free you from fear. The bible in fact teaches exactly this:
"I sought the Lord, and He heard me, and delivered me from all my fears". -- Psalm 34:4.
The "Lord" in this case is again a metaphor for the Subconscious Mind. Some might object saying that The Lord really means "God", but in fact even this is correct because as the Bible also says "God is within us", and so in fact the Subconscious Mind is an aspect of the infinite Mind of God.
One of the most common fears of people next to the illusion of the change known as "death" is the perceived inevitability of "ageing". In fact people only age because they believe they can, as a result of programming from an early age.
People believe that at a certain age you must gain gray hair, teeth fall out, wrinkled skin and then comes mental degradation and senility before finally the release of "death".
Here is the truth; it is a medicaly established fact that our entire physical body renews itself constantly. Some parts renew in hours, some days, some weeks, others perhaps months, but after a short time we have a brand new body; this applies to everyone in physical life. So why is it then that people age?
The reason is because they believe they will age the Subconscious Mind happily accepts that belief and manifests the signs of aging in accordance with those beliefs. Some might say that it is due to oxidation of tissue due to free radicals in the blood. This may or may not be true, but even if it is, the Subconscious Mind will use whatever mechanism the Subconscious Mind deems appropriate to achieve the desire in the quickest, most efficient and most effective way, and if that is by free radicals then so be it.
The body cells are forming body parts in accordance with the instructions of the Subconscious Mind. If the Subconscious Mind instructs the intelligent skin, hair and eye cells to form wrinkled skin, gray hair and poor eyesight, that is what they will do.
"Oh that I were as in months past, as in the days when God preserved me; When his candle shined upon my head, and when by his light I walked through darkness; As I was in the days of my youth, when the secret of God was upon my tabernacle". -- Job 29:2-4.
This passage demonstrates that once you know that you cannot truly age then that will be the reality, and the reality will be:
"His flesh shall be fresher than a child's: he shall return to the days of his youth" -- Job 33:25.
I could say much more about the true teachings of the Bible, but I will return to this subject from time to time in the future.
I am happy to do this in the knowledge that, as in the title and subject of my book, their is only one ultimate reality and one truth, a truth so infinitely powerful that its light will penetrate where no false teaching can ever go, a truth so intense and unmistakable for what it is that there is no need to point out the false truths, creed and dogma originating at a time when the originators either did not understand, or sought to distort the truth for their own convenience.
Every belief system, religion and tradition has elements of truth, but the absolute truth is a thread that runs through all.
Be conscious of one most important truths. It is fine to desire material things that genuinely help the learning process, and to bring genuine joy. No material thing however, in and of itself, obtained by the demands of the ego, or vanity, or to look better than others can bring true happiness, fulfilment and above all the very reason we are here; Spiritual progress.
"But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, temperance: against such there is no law" -- Galations 5:22-23
And finally always remember; only you can create your own reality by the thoughts you hold in your Mind; the Bible also knows this truth:
"For as a man thinketh in his heart, so is he" -- Proverbs 23:7
