"We, as Divine Scientists understand through the Divine Science teachings that we have choices. We can accept whatever comes to us, or, we can choose what comes to us by practicing the principles of love, generosity, peace and good will. This means to intentionally surround ourselves with the ideas that provide us more than “things” will ever provide us. When we fill ourselves with the principle of love, we are love. Fill ourselves with health and we are health. Fill ourselves with soul wealth and we are emotional and financial wealth. Fill ourselves with peace and we are peace." ~ Melinda E. Cramer
*****There is no doubt that attitude is everything. If you have a depressed attitude you will be depressed. If you have an attitude of inferiority, sometimes called 'poverty consciousness', you will definitely feel inferior. If you have an attitude of being oppressed, you will definitely walk through life as a victim.
The GOOD News is that all this can be changed though the practice of Self-realization.
True Self Realization is attained through the exercise of your God Consciousness. It's called "using your mind" (not losing your mind). It works two ways. "As we remember God, so God remembers us." It is God's knowledge of us that we are after. Not "how do I see myself?" but "How does God see me?" And through realizing God's knowledge of us, we attain to Self-realization. This is why it is said that "Who knows himself, knows God." Because one cannot know oneself truly except through knowing God.
Hidden underneath the deliberate deception of self oppression and victimhood is a divinely brilliant soul that knows what it can do and how it can do it. But we have to weed our way into the green pastures of liberation and happiness. They will not be trampled by the unruly. The weeding process teaches discipline and self-control. The prison is there to hold you under control until you learn the discipline that will set you free. You recognize your own danger and keep yourself from the freedom that would lead to harmful behavior. This comes from your kindness and conscience. You'd rather hurt yourself than hurt others.
Fortunately the masters of this science have developed and handed down a wealth of truths and methods that will help us discover our true, liberated, happy and prosperous self. Only a little practice of these truths will bring noticeable results. And the more we practice, the more results we obtain. It's quite wonderful. And I would love to help you learn these powers known as The Science of Mind.
On the Nature of Unclarity
We are always doing something and there are only three states of doership. Knowing this is enlightenment. We are either doing, not doing or deciding. Not doing is a doing. As long as I'm intending, I'm doing. The question is, are we not doing by intention or by default? Are we the masters of ourselves or the slaves/victims? We can get a hold of ourselves by using our intention to not do. Then you know what you are doing, you are 'doing' the intentional 'not-doing'. Then is your mind still and focused, free of concern or confusion as to what you are doing (or not). When asked, "What are you doing"? You can say with absolute certainty and clarity of intention, "nothing".
Confusion is not knowing what we are doing. The case for the majority of bewildered people is that they are deciding but simply do not know it. Nor do they know what they are deciding on. And in that 'not-knowing' they are doing many things, most of which are fruitless and without point or any real intention. In not knowing that there are only three options, we become bewildered by what seems to be an endless multiplicity of choices. But stop for a moment and think about it. Be clear. When you are doing, you're doing. Then you're clear and that's why people prefer doing (anything, right or wrong) over 'not' doing (anything). However, when you are not doing it is often without intention and therefore it is unclear whether your 'should' be doing something. And if so, what?
So the state of deciding becomes confused with being stuck and then we're stuck trying to figure our way out of the stuckness instead of simply returning to the basics which we did not know until now.
The basics are - again. We are either doing, not doing, or somewhere in between, attempting to make up our minds, and since we do not know what our real options are it seems endless.
It's the use of our intention which governs our sense of self mastery or self governance, without which we feel (intentional blindness or silence). And when we do not know what we are doing we are doing nothing, and to wrap our intention around that is to regain self control. Meditate on That! And, if you continue to give it thought, you will see that even when we are in the state of doing, in reality 'we' are not there, nor, are "we" the doers at all.
THREE THINGS OF IMPORTANCE: HEALTH, WEALTH AND KNOWLEDGE -
PHYSICAL WELL BEING, FINANCIAL ABUNDANCE AND LIFE UNDERSTANDING.
OFTEN WE HAVE ONE OR TWO, BUT RARELY DO WE HAVE ALL THREE.
Thanks, Praise and Gratitude be to Allah (That Unity, the study and contemplation of which has fascinated us all of our lives) Who has guided us to 'This'. And we would not be among the guided (to 'This') were it not for the guidance of Allah." ~ Qur`an
SO, IN ORDER TO COMPLETE MY BALANCE,
I WILL TEACH AND PRACTICE THE SCIENCE OF HEALTH AND PROSPERITY,
AND, BY SO CONTEMPLATING, BRING MY MONEY INTO REALITY.
I WILL CALL IT -
REALIZING YOUR POWER TO REALIZE YOUR POWER:
APPLYING SCIENCE OF MIND TO PERSONAL DEVELOPMENT
THE ANCIENT YOGIC PRINCIPLES OF SAMYAMA:
REALIZING YOUR POWER TO REALIZE YOUR POWER
CONTEMPLATION AS THE MEANS TO MANIFESTATION:
USING THE MIND AND ITS POWER TO TURN IDEAS INTO REALITIES.
TEACHING THE POWERS OF THE MIND
HOW TO BRING SOMETHING INTO BEING
HOW TO CONTEMPLATE SOMETHING INTO BEING A REALITY
HOW TO CONTEMPLATE A DREAM INTO BEING YOUR REALITY
HEALING: LET ME LEND YOU SOME MIND POWER
BY HELPING YOU I'M HELPING MYSELF
CAN YOU RECEIVE IT?
HOW TO CONTEMPLATE:
THE THREE STAGES OF ACCOMPLISHMENT
1) FORMULATE THE IDEA; 2) ENVISION ITS REALITY;
3) HOLD FAST UNTIL IT COMES TO YOU.
FIRST - IDENTIFY WHAT YOU WANT TO CONTEMPLATE
SECOND - ENVISION HAVING ALL YOU WANT
AND THIRD - KNOW FOR CERTAINTY THAT IT IS SOON TO BE A REALITY.
LET NO DOUBT ENTER AND WAVER NOT IN YOUR ABSOLUTE CONVICTION.
THESE ARE THE THREE STEPS TO BECOMING A POWERFUL PERSON
CONTEMPLATE YOUR POWER OF SELF EMPOWERMENT
THE CONCEPT OF SELF EMPOWERMENT - HAVING ALL THE MONEY YOU NEED.
HOLD UNWAVERLINGLY BEFORE YOURSELF
THE VISION OF SELF EMPOWERMENT - HAVING ALL THE MONEY YOU NEED.
KNOW THAT IT IS INEVITABLE, GIVEN
THAT YOU SHALL ATTAIN THE ACQUISITION OF SELF EMPOWERMENT -
ENVISION AND HOLD IN FRONT OF YOURSELF UNWAVERINGLY THAT ACQUISITION
REALIZE YOUR POWER TO REALIZE YOUR POWER
It’s not just "I am a powerful person", it's "I am a very powerful person", and have been using my power to avoid the responsibility of acquiring, earning and making money. I constantly undermine myself and support my poverty by making light of my undermining statements about myself such as "I'm good at talking about it but don't really do it." This is what I say to myself! How does that help? This is a personal matter. It doesn't apply to everyone.
TELL THE FUTURE
YOU HAVE THE POWER TO TALK
Talk about what you want, not about what you do for it!
TALK ABOUT PROSPERITY CONSCIOUSNESS
WHAT YOU TALK ABOUT HAPPENS
To impress into your mind an unshakable belief
that you can and will achieve
your financial goals.
DISCOVERING THE MIRACLE
'This' is not Belief.
'This' is not Knowledge.
'This' is Reality.
"...and how can I explain to you what 'This' is?"
One thought of 'Absence'' leads to the world of error. One true thought that there is no absence of life, substance and intelligence in my idea of good, restores to us our rightfully divine inheritance.
The Miracle is, by definition, Divine. We All need The Miracle in our lives. We either recognize our lives as The Miracle we need or we do not. But in either case, we need The Miracle in our lives.
Many people have health who are not necessarily healed. People who are healed are no longer concerned with health and that is why it is granted to them. Their very disconcern for it is why it is granted them.
What is it that healed people are concerned with? They are concerned with The Miracle. They are literally fascinated by it; in awe of it. It occupies their every thought and glance and moment.
"One Perfect Thought of God, inserted into the body, will heal you perfectly!"
What a profound thought! Can we even begin to fathom the reality of that? Why, Yes! We can if we want to. If we are interested in truth in any fashion, we must be fascinated by the potential offered in this one idea.
