Working my Consciousness

Greetings all of you from my 4Ts class and anyone else that may stumble upon this. So I had some words feed me this morning and I thought I would share. Please comment, lets get this prosperity discussion started ya'll!

from Thomas Troward, Edinburgh/Dore Lectures, page 137
"My mind is a center of Divine operation. The Divine operation is always for expansion and fuller expression, and this means the production of something beyond what has gone before, something entirely new, not included in past experience, though proceeding out of it by an orderly sequence of growth. Therefore, since the Divine cannot change Its inherent nature, it must operate in the same manner in me; consequently in my own special world, of which I am the center, it will move forward to produce new conditions, always in advance of any that have gone before."

This is from part of the 1st year practitioner training manual.
"When we are living our life in harmony with constructive Spiritual Principles it flows with ease. Our consciousness resonates with Divine Consciousness. We are open for the fullness of God's gift of Life, and it flows through us producing a joyous experience of life. When there is something dominating our consciousness that is denying, violating, or inverting some Spiritual Principle, we are faced with all manner of unpleasant conditions. Disorder, disease, lack and limitation are inevitable results of living with beliefs that oppose the spiritual truth of our being. These conditions are a message that something must be changed in our consciousness and , once changed, will result in a healing in our experience...Ernest Holmes stated again and again that we are dealing with subjective patters of thought. These patterns of thought need to be redirected in order to achieve positive results. We do not have to pinpoint a specific mental cause, and certainly do not need to pinpoint a specific psychological cause, but rather seek to uncover and neutralize general patterns of thinking which do not serve us."

Deeply I breathe and hold myself in Love.

Hello Profit Sisters and Brothers!

Darrell thanks for setting up yet another way to communicate and stay connected. I appreciate the quotes and the reminder to embrace the ease and prosperity which comes from living in harmony with the spiritual principles and practices we share. As I mentioned on Monday, I expected the affirmations of “I am prosperous” to feel silly but I quickly got the “prosperity shiver” and it helped me cross the bridge from skepticism to authenticity. Now the “shawl thing,” I’m working on crossing that power suite-bridge by embracing its playfulness. I’ll let you know how it turns out.

The longest bridge for me to cross so far is writing down on those 10 cards my specific goal for these 12 weeks. With Rev.Vincent Kueffner’s metaphor in mind (from his sermon last Sunday), the wind is blowing and the bridge is moving! It’s so ridiculous too, what came up for me was so fear-based and unexpectedly strong, that it surprised that logical part of me that finally managed to say, “Richard, wassup!?!? That’s why you’re in 4T’s. You chose to open this. Embrace the challenge. Love the excitement. Feed off of it. Say ‘yes’ and don’t get attached to what it looks like.” Much thanks to J.D. for praying me over the bridge and helping me enjoy the sensation of the wind as the girders swayed. Since I won’t be in class on Monday to deliver my 10 cards personally, I’m writing my goal here. Here goes:
I allow the clarity and wisdom of spirit to flow through me as I write my book.

I will give 10 cards to Darrell at Sunday’s service, since I won’t be in class next week. I’m holding everyone with love in my prayers.

I AM pro-spirit!
