When I began to “catch” the idea that the nature of God is one of Abundance forever expanding, it occurred to me that an unlimited supply of everything is available moment by moment, right here and right now. After all, The Source of all life is Self-Giving, the very essence of Divine Love.
I remember the first time I tested the Principle of Infinite Supply. It was Christmastime and I was financially depleted. I saw no possible way to provide my young family with all that I wanted us to experience during the season.
Although I was a novice when it came to Spiritual Mind Treatment (Affirmative Prayer); nonetheless, I began to reason that I was indeed worthy of my desired good right here and right now. I began to envision God as Omnipresent Love, a Provider of all things, and never limited by time and space.
Soon. I began to feel the shift in consciousness. I began to imagine the celebration of Christmas in our home. While I was still basking in the idea, my doorbell rang. My blessing was delivered exactly as I imagined, right down to the minutest detail.
I learned much from that first “conscious demonstration” of Divine Principle. I became a better steward of my finances as I practiced specific laws of prosperity, always keeping the channels wide open for the giving and receiving of infinite supply.
Several years later, while walking home after doing some last-minute Christmas shopping, I began doing a check-list in my mind to see if I missed anything. It seemed I had not. In fact, I actually had money left over. I remember saying to myself, “oh my, I now have more than I need.”
In that self-same moment I felt a tug at my purse that was hanging from my shoulder. By the time I turned around, my old idea of living on the edge was fulfilled. The thief was nearly out of sight, running with my nice leather purse swinging in the air. Yes, ideas of lack and limitation rob us of the infinite supply of the here and now good that is ever present. The following adage became crystal clear to me: “For whoever has will be given more, and they will have an abundance. Whoever does not have, even what they have will be taken from them” (Matthew 25:29).
I now know that the Spiritual Law of Mind, like all laws of nature is neutral, impartial, and never a respecter of person. The fruits (or evidence) of The Law always show up in perfect proportion to my faith; or what I believe I deserve. The Law of Mind is the Invisible Cause behind all that is seen or experienced. It is immediate in its action.
I now realize that the Law of Mind is propelled by the Love of God desiring self-expression through me. Robert Browning said, “All’s love, yet all’s law.” Ernest Holmes taught, “Love points the way, and the Law makes the way possible.” Jesus said, “I Am the way, the Truth and the Light.” These concepts of both New Thought and Ancient Wisdom empower me. They cause me to acknowledge my unique relationship with The Divine.
Currently, there is much talk about a new normal. I now know it is to the degree that I let go of the former beliefs in limitation, and to the degree that I provide a space in consciousness through which the Self-Giving-ness of Divine Love may be realized, that: health, wealth, love, peace and harmony become a normal way of life, right here and right now ~ for all people of the planet.
Love is the essence of who I am. My desired good cannot help but come to fruition in my experience as I believe.
