I know that God/Goddess is within me, right here, right now,

and leads me on a perfect path!

What do you believe about God and yourself?

          The very first and most important thing is to decide what you believe about God, about yourself, and about your relationship to God or with God. These must be your very own inner secret beliefs. Not necessarily what someone else has told you. Examine your beliefs, were they held over from childhood? Bring up your ideas and examine them with your own sense. Are you comfortable with the word God, Goddess, Father or Mother, would you rather call it “Infinite Intelligence,” the “Divine” or simply “That Which Is?” Do you believe you are a part of God or that you are God individualized?

          After much thought and pondering, you may feel you don’t know! That is perfectly okay. The essence of God is not about thought – it is what you feel in your heart. For myself, I know that I am made in the spiritual image and likeness of God and am God individualized.

          When the late Dr. Charles Steinmetz, Research Scientist for General Electric Laboratories, was asked in what department of Science the greatest discoveries would be made in the next fifty years, he replied, “I think the greatest discovery will be made along spiritual lines. Here is a force which history clearly states has been the greatest power in the development of man and history. Yet we have merely been playing with it and have never seriously studied it, as we have the physical forces. Someday people will learn that material things do not bring happiness and are of little use in making men and women creative and powerful. The scientists of the world will turn their laboratories over to the study of God, prayer and the spiritual forces which have, as yet, hardly been scratched. When this day comes, the world will see more advancement in one generation than it has in the past four.”

          So – how do you harness this power? Go to your mirror and look yourself straight in the eyes and say, “I am a worthwhile person, I like myself, I deserve to be happy, healthy, and prosperous (add anything else you desire to have in your life).”

          I urge you to do this every day for at least thirty days or however long it takes for you to believe it. As you continue to do this you will feel and see the difference in yourself and your life. Sounds easy – and it is!

          When you get to the point you can see a color around your head – you will have accessed your aura, or as artists centuries ago painted it – your halo. As your aura becomes brighter – you become more aware of who you truly are as a spiritual being.

          This opens up your receptivity to receive all the good the Universe has for you NOW. Remember always that you are made in the image of God and God only makes perfect things. Once you have decided, deep within, that you are worthy – many unexpected gifts will start flowing to you. Now, watch how you receive these gifts or compliments.

Don’t let anyone put “strings” on the gifts. And please don’t keep a mental list and try to pay people back. Rather, just pass your good on to someone else if you start getting too much. Do not stop the flow – take it all with thanks.

          Do you negate other’s feelings or refuse to accept the “good things” in life because you feel you don’t deserve them? If someone offers to pick up the lunch tab, what do you say? Allow others the privilege of giving. If you don’t you are stopping your own flow and theirs. The other half of giving is receiving. Also, you are malpracticing them if you think, “they can’t afford it.” Know if they want to do something for you it is their pleasure. Did you know more people can give than receive? Isn’t that interesting.

          Affairs quickly change for people after they start talking about prosperity more and less about lack. So give your relatives and neighbors the benefit of your positive thoughts about monetary as well as spiritual growth.

          Watch how you talk when you are in groups. Is it lack and limitation and how expensive or is it prosperity talk? Never underestimate the power of the spoken word. Many, many books have been written on this subject and I recommend that you study some of them. 

“I’m Jewish. I don’t work out. If God had wanted us to bend over, He would have put diamonds on the floor.” Joan Rivers.

“The secret of a good sermon is to have a good beginning and a good ending, then having the two as close together as possible.” George Burns.

“There is a charm about the forbidden that makes it unspeakably desirable.” Mark Twain. 

“In the beginning there was nothing and God said ‘Let there be light’, and there was still nothing but everybody could see it.”  Dave Thomas.

“When I told the people of Northern Ireland that I was an atheist, a woman in the audience stood up and said, ‘Yes, but is it the God of the Catholics or the God of the Protestants in whom you don’t believe?” Quentin Crisp.

“Expecting the world to treat you fairly because you are good is like expecting the bull not to charge because you are a vegetarian.” Dennis Wholey.

“My mother said to me, “If you are a soldier, you will become a general. If you are a monk, you will become the Pope.” Instead, I was a painter, and became Picasso.” Pablo Picasso. 

I find it discouraging – and a bit depressing – when I notice the unequal treatment afforded by the media to UFO believers on the one hand, and on the other, to those who believe in an invisible supreme being who inhabits the sky. George Carlin
