Week 10- The Trail of Truth….

Abundance or Scarcity?~

If we pause and look back on our lives, we shall see that we were taught many things over our primary years and throughout college.  This is a time in life, where teachers poured profuse amounts of information into our impressionable minds.  For the most part, we bought it ‘hook, line and sinker’ without question.  As we mature, and especially if one goes through a course like the MKMMA, we give consideration to what is in our minds and subby.  Some of which do NOT belong there! Unfortunately, not all learned how to ‘think’ since thinking isn’t always encouraged.  Yet, there is a trail of truth to be found, so that we can understand the natural laws and fulfill their requirements, thus we receive what it is we really desire in life……..friendship, honor love and approval.

One thing in particular that I’ve heard debated, is whether natural resources are running out (the scarcity philosophy) or if they are abundant.  I’ve always believed that what God has created, He will provide for. Yes, we need to manage the resources well.  If we are careful to ponder and observe our physical world, we see evidence of abundance in nature, reproduction…which multiplies its kind.  Sometimes we miss the trail of truth because of assumptions or beliefs we hold.  It’s good to stop, listen, observe and ponder……….many different things.  We must not let our lives or minds operate on auto-pilot.

The Divine Touch~

Haanel talked about ‘a closed door’ between the natural world and the spiritual world, where a barrier exists and cannot be crossed from the natural side to the spiritual.  But, a plant can reach down into the mineral-laden soil and life will sprout forth.  Even so, God reaches down into our finite human minds, and endows us with wonderful, creative qualities, whereby man’s achievements have been heralded as brilliant and mind-boggling, such as the invention of the computer.  I believe that a ‘divine touch’ sparked the imagination and yielded great return through the law of growth.

This week, we also learned that the great error of our time, is the idea that man must originate the intelligence whereby God can proceed to bring about a result.  This is not so; God can be depended upon to find the ways and means to bring about any necessary manifestation. Isn’t that great to know?

The Scroll Marked III~

Og stated very well, “I will persist until I succeed.  I was not delivered unto this world in defeat, nor does failure course in my veins.  I am not a sheep waiting to be prodded by my shepherd.  I am a lion and I refuse to talk, to walk, to sleep with the sheep.  I will hear not those who weep and complain, for their disease is contagious.  Let them join the sheep.  The slaughterhouse of failure is not my destiny. I will persist until I succeed.”

Yes, I will persist.  I will win.

  1. I was blessed with reading your entry It comforts me to know that God loves me and will provide. I just need to clearly state what that is. Everything and anything would be small, Compared to heavens best, Gods son.

  2. I must admit that I was operating from a scarcity mentality in some respects before MKMMA and week 10’s lesson from Haanel. I agree that nature provides us with abundance, but my feeling is that man’s interference has caused its distribution to become skewed. That is, some don’t get enough, some too much. Example, floods and droughts. If I am right, I wonder how we can right ourselves with nature, and learn to respect her again. Thankfully the lesson of abundance is still something that I can apply in my life so that my positive, action thoughts are not limited.

  3. Charlene, I enjoyed reading your comments on the “Divine Touch”. We certainly are inspired to achieve by a higher Mind than our own; the Universal mind is the catalyst by which we ALL can be whole, perfect, strong, powerful, loving, harmonious and happy!
