‘Truth of Law and Faith’
When we live from truth, we give up all beliefs and live on faith. The Law of the Universe responds by correlating to our beliefs and actions. When we believe we are our circumstances, we live from scarcity….. it is a lie! When we live from Divine Principle, we live from Faith. When faith becomes our very essence, we have confidence and trust……We trust Source, we trust ourselves, we trust the Universe…… We have a ‘knowing’ that our lives are unfolding perfectly. We know that even challenges are just lessons or test of our commitments. Faith is a belief that is not based on proof through the external world.
The Universe has to agree with you 100% of the time. You are always 100% correct!
How you believe it is…… How you think it is…. How you say it is….. How you act like it is….. IT IS!!!!Thomas Troward was a true believer in faith. He spoke of faith and as us being ‘The Divine Ideal.’ His work was profound, in that, it taught us lessons of ‘how’ to live from Divine Principle and not from circumstances. He affirms that the cause IS Spirit and that this entire world is the effect. We are that Spirit…We are the cause! In his book ‘The Edinburgh and Dore Lectures on Mental Science’ he talks about manifestation and demonstration. He says everything in our lives is a demonstration of our creation within our own minds. There is One mind, One Source, One Spirit… We are that! He goes on to say that all growth proceeds from Divine Principle. The law of growth is constantly expanding. Our ultimate purpose is to enjoy life! We take this law of potentiality and direct it consciously….this is how we live out our purpose, which is to enjoy life!
We block Divine Potentiality with everyday logic. Mans argument is that what has not been in the past, can’t be in the future. This argument has no weight….It is a lie! We are not our circumstances. We are not limited. We are not anything less than infinite potential.
“Principle is not bound by Precedent” – T.T.So the question remains: Why are we not demonstrating? Troward says that it is because we have introduced something antagonistic to Divine Principle. The error is that we believe that Divine Principle can be effected by the material world and that we believe we are limited by our surrounded conditions of life. The moment we question Divine Principle, is the moment the universe has to agree with us, by corresponding perfectly and proving our belief that it doesn’t work.
One of the confusions of faith or Divine Principle is that we feel we are the effect. We could even state that we are the effect of what we created, but that is a lie as well. The truth is that we are NEVER the effect. It is just an illusion that we are an effect! We may experience the falsity that we are the effect, but we are never the effect. When we live in alignment with Divine Principle, we don’t believe our conditions as fact, we view them only an opportunity to ‘KEEP THE FAITH’. We see the material world as the effect. When we keep the faith, we no longer get caught up in how long it takes to manifest and demonstrate. We realize we are embryos in our creative abilities and directing The Law. When we are experiencing circumstances that have us question our faith, instead of thinking or analyzing we should pray. Prayers main purpose is to alter our perception and to know the truth, to see opportunity where there is suffering, to have compassion where there is hate….. to know we are the creator…….. To live in accordance with Divine Will……. To be set free!
Knowing the truth
Lack, is known as prosperity
Hate, is know as love
Disease, is to know perfect health
Death, is to know the infinite”
-James MellonHaving a Daily Spiritual Practice allows us to live Divine Principle. It confirms our faith and commitment to living our purpose of enjoying life! Gradually, as we get in alignment with truth we begin to have confidence in Faith. We will begin to argue from the positive side of things rather than from the negative side of things. What we focus on will begin to expand. Are you committed to lack, hate, scarcity….. or are you committed to abundance, prosperity, harmony, peace and love.
Three fold Principle:
1. General life principle (Knowing that there is One Source, One Force, Infinite Intelligence, Infinite Potential, Everything is connected, Everything is God)
2. Localization of this principle in the individual (We are that Source, We are that Force, We are Infinite Intelligence, We are connected to Everything, we are God)
3. Law of growth (It is always expanding, harmonizing, creating, our purpose is to enjoy life!)
What we think about, most of the time, is what directs our lives. What does your mind focus on most of the time? Do you focus on problems? Do you focus on what you want to create? Do you feel abundant or scarcity? Do you talk about what is wrong with people or what is right with people? Do you affirm that anything and everything is possible or do you argue why things won’t happen?
