Your Good is at hand. Accept it and be happy. Right now, this instant, you can begin creating a wonderful life, if you’re not already. What? You’re not having a wonderful life? How can that be?
I haven’t earned it, yet
I don’t deserve it, yet
I haven’t suffered enough, yet
Nope. That’s not why.
“But George, in the real world there is no gain without pain. If you don’t sacrifice and give up what you desire, then you won’t get anything, and, besides, I must prove myself worthy of having good in my life.”
Say’s who? Who, or what, demands that you deny your Good? Seriously, who? God? Source? The All? Who? What? Who/what limits the good you experience right now?
Would YOU want to inflict suffering on your child? Of course not. So, what keeps you from accepting your Good Life, here and now? There is an answer: It is your mental attention on the lack or absence of your Good.
It’s been long taught that “there are two sides to everything.” Everything is dual; everything has poles; everything has a pair of opposites; like and unlike; wanted, unwanted; positive, negative divided into countless degrees. This is a fundamental structure of the universe. When we understand this structure, law if you will, we are able to gain more control over our experience.
Everything is in motion, nothing in the universe is static. Everything vibrates and has a frequency – a rate of vibration. It is the range of frequencies along a vibrational scale that creates the polarity – up/down; high/low; hot/cold; in/out; joy/despair. It is the same thing but at different degrees, such as hot-cold.
Your world, your momentary experience, is determined by your focus – your attention to a particular frequency of something. Where your attention is, is where you are. This is why Jesus taught that the “poor” will be around always. Jesus didn’t mean “poor” as an economic term or degree of material possession, but rather the perception and perspective such a person has regarding self and relationship to other frequencies. In effect, such people give their attention to what they “lack” rather than practicing their thinking higher on that scale towards “desire”.
Why do you enjoy being around certain people? You know, you feel good when they’re around. There’s more energy and delight when they’re around. The sensation is evident, but what’s going on?
c: the process by which an electrical conductor becomes electrified when near a charged body, by which a magnetizable body becomes magnetized when in a magnetic field or in the magnetic flux set up by a magnetomotive force, or by which an electromotive force is produced in a circuit by varying the magnetic field linked with the circuit. (Merriam-Webster)
The operative phrase is near a charged body. Electrical induction describes a process of transference of energy or force through space. This principle holds vast promise for accessing electricity. Even more important, it helps explain such elusive phenomena as “mental telepathy,” the healing factor of “prayer,” as well as the sensation felt when in the presence of a charged personality.
· Energy is a vibration
· Thought is energy
· Vibration has a frequency
· Energy can be transmitted
The bottom line is that we are vibrational beings and, being such, participate in induction. There is value in feeling good – it has an effect on others. In a sense, the best thing you can do for someone is enjoy yourself. The reverse is also true – that you can be influenced by the frequencies emitted by others. This is the sensation of entering a building, a room, a structure and having a “sense” of it – either pleasant or dismal. Literally, it is vibrating, the vibrations at least in part the result of induction from other people. Now, this gets to be fun when we realize this means we have a degree, perhaps a lot, of control over our experience.
Thought is the most inherent component of ourselves and we have the ability to chose, select if you will, how we think. The way we think affects our interpretation of what we sense around us and how we project to others. The implications are marvelous.
We help others through induction. Induction charges, affects vibration. The higher the frequency in a given subject, the better the experience. By changing our vibration, and we do that firstly by changing our thoughts, we attract experiences of a similar vibration. The better it gets, the better it gets. The worse it gets, the worse it gets. It’s the vibration that’s the key.
Think of everything as a SCALE. This is my polarity stick. It has four sides, representing Direction, Temperature, and Emotions. There’s North/South, Hot/Cold, Love/Hate, and Joy/Despair.
Imagine that we are all at the North Pole. But, it’s time to move on. Someone plans to go to New York. Someone plans to go to London. Someone plans to go to Bossier City. Someone intends to go to Saigon. What direction does each person go? South. They arrive in different places, but all head in the same direction.
Hot and Cold. Same thing, just a matter of degree. For our senses, “hot” might be the vibrational point that causes water molecules to separate. “Cold” might be the point where water molecules crystalize. We set the standard for these “extremes” these two aspects of the same thing.
Love and Hate are the same thing, just different expressions of frequency. Which one is more pleasant? Certainly love. However, if a person has experienced despair for a long time, a feeling of “hate” is an improvement. There is no right or wrong along any scale. It is what it is. We have the ability, with thought, to move our frequency closer to that which we wish to experience.
For many of us, that would be Joy. But we can’t be on the same frequency as joy if our attention is on something that distresses us. To be more joyful means that we give our attention to joy; to choose to focus on the Good in our immediate moment.
So, what do we have?
There is ONE universe. The Universe is a mental creation of that we call God (capital G). All is in motion – energy vibrates and the frequency determines its nature.
We think with our Mind. Thoughts are not products of the brain, a physical organ. Our Mind attracts thoughts based on our attention. This is great! We have the ability, and the authority, to give our attention to any and every thing that we desire.
Uh, what if we’re clueless to what we desire? Not an unusual situation, actually. Think polarity – even if you don’t know what you want, you most certainly are aware of what you don’t want. What you want is the other end of the scale.
Recognizing that prayer and healthy vibrations are received by others is important. Some folks, very well intentioned but not understanding how things work, might hold such erroneous beliefs that any time they feel good, someone somewhere must feel bad. Or that if they prosper, then someone somewhere is denied prosperity.
Nonsense. You can test this. If you believe that having Good means that someone else is denied their good, then go home and get very sick. Become very ill. Suffer greatly. By doing so someone, somewhere will suddenly enjoy health. Of course it doesn’t work that way. If you want to assist someone in poor physical health, be healthy yourself – project to them a higher vibration; when you give such person your attention, behold them with love and health, perceiving them as they truly are.
Another thing is to follow your Intuition. It’s YOU communicating with You. It is your Higher Self sending guidance.
The higher frequency rules the lower. The only way to “get rid” of a thing or a thought is to give your attention to something else. By “getting rid” of something your attention is on the thing you want to be rid of, which attracts more of the same.
What? You “got up on the wrong side of the bed this morning? Okay. Take a moment, take a breath, relax, now mentally get up on the right side of the bed. You can do this now! There is no reason to give your attention to anything that distresses you. You can ALWAYS think of something else, something higher on the scale. And that’s the way you get there.
Charles Fillmore got it right: If you’re unhappy with your life, change your thinking.
