INSPIRATIONAL INJECTION: October 15-22, 2012
In the above passage from the Bible the Great Teacher tells how to get the things you desire. The tragedy of the whole matter is that so few people have received the things for which they prayed, and that so many good people, Christian or otherwise, are poor, and sick, and disappointed, and miserably plodding along toward the end of life sustained by the hope that the next world will be better than this one.
Jesus was not a practical joker, nor did he give his people a stone when he knew they wanted bread. When he said “What things soever,” he meant exactly that: “What things soever”. He was not talking about some kind of vague spiritual blessings; he was talking about the things that men and women desire, and would enable them to make their lives what they want them to be. But he requires that one who is deeply desiring a certain thing shall believe that he or she already has it.
The American version of the New Testament puts this belief in the past tense— “Believe that ye have received,” etc. Such belief is practically impossible in the great majority of cases, and that is why so many prayers go unanswered.
One such simple method is to imagine having or being that which you desire to have or to be and to adopt the feeling that you would have if this desire were already fulfilled. If you use your imagination in this way while you are lying in bed prior to going to sleep, your Subconscious Mind will have all night to work on it. It is important to realize that this is not just make-believe, and that the things that you desire to have or to be will in time be yours. You should therefore think about and look forward to the fulfillment of your desires at odd moments throughout the day.
If you do this regularly and consistently you will begin to feel that the things you desire are coming to you, and they surely will. It is an unfailing way by which you can be the things you want to be, possess the things you desire, and achieve the things you wish to achieve.
Once its wisdom and power are invoked, the Subconscious Mind will do whatever is necessary to accomplish the things impressed upon it, but in matters of success and happiness it accomplishes results in the vast majority of cases by prompting you to do and say the right thing, go to the right place and see the right person. That is simple enough and yet nothing else is needed to enable you to do and to be what you want to do and be. Written by: D.A. Simmons & R. E. Smith
