“Life is a mirror and will reflect back to the thinker what he thinks into it.” Ernest Holmes
Everything in my life in the world of conditions is my reflection. My mind is a reflector and if I want to change the reflection I must change me. Did you ever wonder why you were experiencing certain things in your life or why certain people and relationships show up over and over again? It is simple. We do not attract what we want; we attract what we are. If we want to change our conditional world, we must go back to root cause – us.
This is not to blame ourselves or punish ourselves for the circumstances we are in, but to take back our Power that we might have given over to some outside condition. It’s called victim consciousness and we are not victims. We are powerful creators working daily either consciously or unconsciously co-creating with the amazing Law of our Being. Michael Beckwith calls it our “Sacred Yes.”
In the Science of Mind teaching, we quote from the famous speech by our founder Ernest Holmes, “There’s a Power for Good in the Universe greater than we are, and we can use it.” Do we really believe it? Do we believe that in every moment we are using this Power? If we really did, we would continually clear our minds to think only good, only love, only abundance, only health. I think it might be that we do not realize how powerful we are.
There is a lot of pressure on us coming from the world of conditions. People are shouting things at us from everywhere and pulling us to this side or that. We might find ourselves confused and not knowing which way to turn. We might think there is nothing we can do. The truth is we can do something. We can go deep within ourselves to our own inner chamber, our own inner closet and discover ourselves. We can dig deep and ask ourselves what do we believe? Who do we want to become? What do we believe is possible for us?
If we are putting any limit on the Principle of Life than we are experiencing those limits. Think back to first Cause, the Absolute, the Field that has never been touched by anything and begin to build your belief system. We must choose how we want to think and what we want to feel and what we want to believe and put no limit on the Principle of Life. It is for us. It is always saying yes!
Life is not holding anything back from us. We hold the size of our bucket. The Universe is plentiful and there is good for all. However, if we are spending our time looking out and discovering all the reasons why life isn’t working, it will continue to not work for us. “Life is a mirror and reflects back to the thinker what he/she thinks into it.” There is no way around this. It’s Law and thank goodness for it.
We are on the verge of a New Earth. Our species is coming to understand that we are at choice, that we can consciously create our own destiny, that we are one with each other and that cooperation with the laws of the Universe will get the best results for everyone. The fight is over. The victory begins with each one of us staying true to our inner genius and trusting our Power. I choose to reflect into the mirror a personage, me, that believes in good, in love and truth and then acts from that place.
Love and Aloha,
