Give This World Back To God – What Does That Mean

There Is Power In Getting On Your Knees

I did it just know after watching this recording for the maybe 10th time. With that I realized this: when we give the world back to God we are giving it back to us to me.

What Does That Mean?

It means we are removing the blocks to our pure potentiality So when we get down on our knees we are saying to ourselves remove the blocks so I too can make the difference I was intended to make while arriving here

Some may view this as a deep subject. That can be if you have not studied who you are.

Sending energy of peace, love, calm, wisdom

Thanksgiving 2015 – Toothpaste and Toilet Paper

Gratitude Gives Us Wings To Fly HigherProsperity has many dimensions.  If you have toilet paper today you are a rich person.  Google say over half do not have access to TP that means  about 4 billion people.   I am  grateful for so many things. For example: running water, toothpaste, electricity, the internet -the list is long and  includes toilet paper.,

Most of us  including myself,  focus on what we do not have and take  for granted what we do have.  In order to expand into what we want to experience my mentors have taught me to be grateful for all that is here now – all people, stuff and events.  Nothing is here  for any of us by accident  In what have been my most challenging moments I try to remind myself of  the words I read in the book Dynamic Laws of Prosperity by Catherine Ponder “Thank God Anyway”  Gratitude always lifts my spirit and I know it will do the same for you.

This Thanksgiving I am with some very close friends and people I have never met.  The place is magical, the weather is as perfect as can be.  How did this happen?  A series of events earlier this year resulted in a connection with a wonderful man who in a short period of time in the category of being a great friend and business partner. Could I have predicted that? No way!  And that is my concluding comment on this Thanksgiving Day – Pay Attention To The Messages You Are Intended To Receive.  You are reading this for a reason.

I love you

May this day and everyday be blessed for you – I am in gratitude for all that I experience and you. In advance, for those times that I find most challenging I declare Thank You God!

“Release Resistance – The Only Obstacle To Your True Power” Abraham

Happiness Depends on The Quality of Your ThoughtsMost rarely align with their true power, because it seems illogical to them that there is power in relaxation, in letting go, or in love or joy or bliss. Most people do not understand that their true power lies in releasing resistance—which is the only obstacle to their true power.

Most people do not expect their path to great abundance to be one of ease and of joy. They have been taught that struggle and hardship and sacrifice are requirements that must be met before the reward of great abundance can be realized. Most do not understand that the very struggle they deliberately involve themselves in, in their quest for success and advantage, actually works against them.

There are so many things that you have been taught to believe that are counter to the powerful Laws of the Universe that it is difficult for you to think your way out. And that is the reason that we present this path of much less resistance.

We want you to breathe rather than try, to relax rather than offer effort, to smile rather than struggle, to be rather than do. For your true power is experienced only from inside the Vortex.

—Abraham

5 Ways To Raise Your Vibration Right Now – And Why This Is Important

When you do the research you will discover all of us are energy. Energy vibrates at varying frequencies.  For example being sick has a certain vibrating frequency associated with it depending on the condition.  As you know that is not our ideal state. The less healthy we eat and drink,  the heavier our density and lower vibration. The happier, calmer, positive, healthier we are the higher our vibration.  The higher our vibration, the closer we are to Source to God which is pure unconditional love.  Of course the less resistance we have the more we are in a position to manifest our dreams and desires.  For now this should help you understand the importance of focusing on raising our vibration.
With Love,

5 Ways To Raise Your Vibration Right Now

By Steven Bancarz|  In spirituality, our “vibration” essentially refers to our energetic state.  Our dominant thoughts, our physical health, our emotions, and our beliefs all collectively contribute to the vibrational state of our energy field.  The contribute to our “vibes” if you will.  When you can feel “vibes” coming from another person, you are literally tapping in to the energy field of that person.

Nobody wants to feel anything other than peace and happiness.  There is a long list of things you can incorporate in your lifestyle that will raise your vibration over the course of time, and even immediately.  Getting sunlight, loving yourself, eating a healthy diet, spending time with friends, and being out in nature are just some of the more obvious ways.

There are some things, however, that you can do right now regardless of where you are that will help raise your vibrational state.  In other words, they will help cultivate more peace of mind, more happiness, more clarity, and more overall wellness immediately.  Here are 5 things you can do right away to raise your vibration:

1) Meditation

We all knew this one would be on the list.  And we all know about the overwhelming amount of physical, psychological, and spiritual benefits that come with mediation.  Yet for some reason, we all kind of resist meditation.  I feel resistance arise sometimes before meditation or even during it, even though I know it is fundamental to my evolution.  The key is to stop thinking of meditation as a task, or as something you have to do.  You don’t have to prepare or do anything fancy.

Just sit right where you are, close your eyes, and just be.  Take a break from your life situation.  Drop all intention of going somewhere or needing to do anything, and give yourself full permission to completely relax, even if it’s just for 60 seconds.  You can do this at the office when your boss isn’t looking, in the bathroom, during commercials on your favourite show, or whenever you would like.  The key is to stay relaxed, yet alert without thinking.  Just be, as the consciousness that you are.  You will always notice an immediate shift in your energetic state, even if you only practice this for 30 seconds.  Your body and mind begin to rest, and your brainwaves will actually alter as well.  Meditation is not a chore! It’s a vacation.  Treat yourself every now and then, and I promise you will see changes in your life.

2) Conscious Breathing

Take 3 conscious breaths right now.  No for real.  Do it.  Take a deep inhale, and be there with the breath the entire way in, and be there with it on the way out.   We give so much attention to the redundant thoughts in our heads and so little time to the breath which is constantly giving us life and sustaining our being.  Every time you choose to stop what you are doing, turn your attention away from the compulsive thought stream and invest it into the flow of the breath, you are literally making the choice to evolve faster.  Every time you take a deep breath, you are cultivating more peace, happiness, stillness, and clarity right away.

I challenge you to take as many conscious breaths as you can throughout the day.  At least every 30 minutes, remind yourself to inhale deeply and be present with the flow of your breathing.  You are literally taking in more Life Energy when you do this.  You will notice that as you begin to get into the habit of doing this on a regular basis, and undercurrent of peace will begin to arise on its own.  More energy, more spiritual awareness, right now.  Take 3 more before you continue on to the next point.

3) Practice Gratitude

You are not starving to death somewhere.   You have clean water to drink.  You have a roof to sleep under.  But on top of the endless list of things you could be grateful for, here is something to think about.  You are on a massive rock whirling around a ball of fire at a speed of 108,000 kph. The sun itself is whizzing along the outskirts of the galactic arm at a rate of 792,000 km/h,  and our Milky Way galaxy itself is moving at almost 1 million kph.  Nobody knows what caused the universe, why it is here, why/how subjectivity or consciousness exists, or how life formed out of dead inert matter in the first place.  I personally believe there is an Intelligence behind it all, but whatever your beliefs may be, here is the most amazing fact of all:

13.6 billion years of star formation and destruction, of chemical evolution, of biological evolution, of countless miraculous events that led to the formation of plants, moons, and ultimately to conscious beings took place so that YOU could experience this moment.  Right now.  The universe went through all of this so it could experience itself through your perspective.  YOU are a f**king miracle.  Life is so amazing.  Look outside.  Here the birds.  Feel the wind.   You are on a planet in outer space, and nobody knows how or why anything exists at all.  Take a look at your friends, your loved ones, and just sit with the internal realization that everything around you is literally a miracle.  We so often forget how lucky we are to experience anything at all.  Taking a moment to remember the preciousness of life is something that always brings your energetic state to a completely new level.

4) Laughter

“A day without laughter is a day wasted” Charlie Chaplin once said.  There is nothing like a good laugh to improve your mood and raise your energetic state. Osho once said, “Life as such has to be taken as cosmic joke – and then suddenly you relax because there is nothing to be tense about. And in that very relaxation something starts changing in you.”

Watch your favourite comedian.  Watch a funny movie.  Tell a pun or two.  Lightheartedness is the best way to approach almost all dilemmas in your life.  When you are in a fight or an argument with someone, try to administer a little bit of humour to the situation.  Once you can crack a smile out of them, the whole energy field of the room changes and you both realize from this new place of lightheartedness that your connection to each other as people is more important than anything.  If you are in a negative circle of thinking, refer back to something that made you laugh in the past.  It’s never worth it to not be at peace.

Here is a list of spiritual jokes and puns.

5) Understanding That Life Is Temporary

One of the most humbling realizations is that impermanence is an unchanging truth.  You will never get to experience this moment every again.  Everything around you will pass with time.  The trees, the buildings, relationships, accomplishments.  The only things that will remain are memories.  Life is so so temporary.  We all know how fast time seems to fly by.  Whether you believe you have a soul or not, here is a truth that has literally changed the way I see life:

There will be a time in this life where you will be old and near passing.  You will be reflecting on your past experiences, on how you spent your time, on all of the great times you had, and maybe even on how often you took life for granted.  There will come a time in your life where you would give ANYTHING to be in this position right now.  Alive, youthful, healthy.   You would give your arm and a leg if you could just experience life as a 20 or 30 or 50-year-old again.  Imagine yourself being on your deathbed and wishing you could go back for just 30 seconds to extract more experience from life and to fully appreciate how amazing it is.  Consider this moment, right now, being your wish granted. What are you going to do with this moment?

It helps me personally to live with the realization that life is a fleeting experience.  It helps cultivate grace, lightness, and love.  The key to to raising your vibration won’t be found in a chakra chart or by clutching on to crystals.  It lies within the way you choose to interact with this present moment.  You can choose mediate, breathe deep, have a laugh, and realize that life is an absolute gift, or you can choose to allow your vibration to be determined by the world around you.

The power is in your hands!  It always has been, and it always will be.  The more we can own up to our power and improve our energetic state at will, the more peace we will have individually.  The more peace we have individually, the more peace we have collectively.  World peace literally starts with you and your energy field, and it doesn’t take any longer than 30 seconds sitting in a chair somewhere to completely uplift your vibration.

Prayer and Action

earth, wind, fire, water

I learned some time ago about an Amish guidance which goes something like this “when you pray, move your feet”. What this means to me is that as we pray and affirm, we are guided to take action. The deeper we go within the more clear the action we are intended to take becomes.

Most are aware of the damage being done to our planet and life. The focus of the following video is to expand collective consciousness for positive change. One action all of us can take is to post positive news and stories on line. Post them to Facebook and other social media venues. If we overwhelm the media with positive stories and news, the dominance of negative news will be diminished greatly. This is one way all of us can make a difference.

Now relax and enjoy this video by Silent Unity. I am a huge fan of Silent Unity. I have the app on my phone and use it often. I request Silent Unity to pray with me for my intentions.

Sending you and Unconditional Love Hug

Silent Unity

Silent UnityOne of the resources I use regularly is the Daily Word that is published by Unity http://unity.org  In a recent addition I noticed an app for Silent Unity. If you are not familiar with Silent Unity, it is where members of Unity take all prayer requests and hold the intention of those requests as received for 30 days.

Yesterday I downloaded the App and wrote a prayer request.  Silent Unity is a resource that candidly I should use more often.  This past year has been more difficult than most and I have stepped up my spiritual work that reminds me of aligning my energy with God and not fear. So now I have the App and have resolved to connect frequently with Silent Unity. In fact I sent another prayer request while typing this.

You don’t need an App to invoke the help of prayer with Silent Unity. Visit Silent Unity on line or call them at 1-800-669-7729  This wonderful resource is non-denominational and is free.

After my prayer request yesterday  I received an email because I asked for one. Here is what I received. I highlighted the affirmation it contains.

Dear Steve,

Rest assured that you have been held in our loving prayers from the moment we received your request. Anytime you desire peace of mind, you can take a moment to pray. When you pray, you open your mind and heart to the flow of God’s love within you and allow this love to replace fear with faith and restore your inner strength.

In your quiet moments of prayer, you can be sure that we are praying with you and that we are holding you in loving thoughts of inner strength, peace of mind, and unwavering faith. We invite you to join us in affirming:

“God’s peace is my peace. God’s strength is my strength. I am faith-filled and secure in God’s love.”

We will be one with you in faith-filled prayer for the next thirty days. A visit to our website will help you find other tools for inspiration.

Lovingly,

Silent Unity

PS: Read a message of peace and faith.

I know that God is in all including me.  When I was young I was taught that God is out there, up there. Now I know God is with me and part of me.  When I pray I still remind myself of that and really focus on removing the blocks to God.  The biggest block is fear. Fear is the opposite of love. God is Love – Unconditional Love 

Many Blessings

From The Greatest Miracle In The World by Og Mandino

To appreciate how this letter came about get the book. I use Kindle all the time for books. The prices are very reasonable and the lessons are priceless.

The God Memorandum
TO: You
FROM: GOD

Take counsel.

I hear your cry.

It passes through the darkness, filters through the clouds, mingles with starlight, and finds its way to my heart on the path of a sunbeam.

I have anguished over the cry of a hare choked in the noose, a sparrow tumbled from the nest of its mother, a child thrashing helplessly in a pond.

Know that I hear you, also. Be at peace. Be calm.
I bring you relief for your sorrow for I know its cause…and its cure.

You weep for all your childhood dreams that have vanished with the years.
You weep for all your self-esteem that has been corrupted by failure.
You weep for all your potential that has been bartered for security.
You weep for all your individuality that has been trampled by mobs.
You weep for all your talent that has been wasted through misuse.
You look upon yourself with disgrace and you turn in terror from the image you see in the pool. Who is this mockery of humanity staring back at you with bloodless eyes of shame?

Where is the grace of your manner, the beauty of your figure, the quickness of your movement, the clarity of your mind, the brilliance of your tongue? Who stole your goods? Is the thief’s identity known to you, as it is to me?

Once you placed your head in a pillow of grass in your father’s field and looked up at a cathedral of clouds and knew that all the gold of Babylon would be yours in time.

Once you read from many books and wrote on many tablets, convinced beyond any doubt that all the Wisdom of Solomon would be equaled and surpassed by you.And the seasons would flow into years until lo, you would reign supreme in your own Garden of Eden.

Do you remember who implanted those plans and dreams and seeds of hope within you?

You cannot.

You have no memory of that moment when first you emerged from your mother’s womb and I placed my hand on your soft brow. And the secret I whispered in your small ear when I bestowed my blessings upon you?

Remember our secret?

You cannot.

The passing years have destroyed your recollection, for they have filled your mind with fear and doubt and anxiety and remorse and hate and there is no room for joyful memories where these beasts habitate.

Weep no more. I am with you…and this moment is the dividing line of your life. All that has gone before is like unto no more than that time you slept within your mother’s womb. What is past is dead. Let the dead bury the dead.

This day you return from the living dead.

This day, like unto Elijah with the widow’s son, I stretch myself upon you three times and you live again.

This day, like unto Elisha with the Shunammite’s son, I put my mouth upon your mouth and my eyes upon your eyes and my hands upon your hands and your flesh is warm again.

This day, like unto Jesus at the tomb of Lazarus, I command you to come forth and you will walk from your cave of doom to begin a new life.This is your birthday. This is your new date of birth. Your first life, like unto a play of the theater, was only a rehearsal. This time the curtain is up. This time the world watches and waits to applaud. This time you will not fail.

Light your candles. Share your cake. Pour the wine. You have been reborn.

Like a butterfly from its chrysalis you will fly…fly as high as you wish, and neither the wasps nor dragonflies nor mantids of mankind shall obstruct your mission or your search for the true riches of life.

Feel my hand upon your head.

Attend to my wisdom.

Let me share with you, again, the secret you heard at your birth and forgot.

You are my greatest miracle.

You are the greatest miracle in the world.
Those were the first words you ever heard. Then you cried. They all cry.

You did not believe me then…and nothing has happened in the intervening years to correct your disbelief. For how could you be a miracle when you consider yourself a failure at the most menial of tasks? How can you be a miracle when you have little confidence in dealing with the most trivial of responsibilities? How can, you be a miracle when you are shackled by debt and lie awake in torment over whence will come tomorrow’s bread?

Enough, the milk that is spilled is sour. Yet, how many prophets, how many wise men, how many poets, how many artists, how many composers, how many scientists, how many philosophers and messengers have I sent with word of your divinity, your potential for godliness, and the secrets of achievement? How did you treat them?

Still I love you and I am with you now, through these words, to fulfill the prophet who announced that the Lord shall set his hand again, the second time, to recover the remnant of his people.

I have set my hand again.

This is the second time.

You are my remnant.

It is of no avail to ask, haven’t you known, haven’t you heard, hasn’t it been told to you from the beginning; haven’t you understood from the foundations of the earth?

You have not known; you have not heard; you have not understood.

You have been told that you are a divinity in disguise, a god playing a fool.

You have been told that you are a special piece of work, noble in reason, infinite in faculties, express and admirable in form and moving, like an angel in action, like a god in apprehension.

You have been told that you are the salt of the earth.

You were given the secret even of moving the mountains, of performing the impossible.

You believed no one. You burned your map to happiness, you abandoned your claim to peace of mind, you snuffed out the candles that had been placed along your destined path of glory, and then you stumbled, lost and frightened, in the darkness of futility and self-pity, until you fell into a hell of your own creation.

Then you cried and beat your breast and cursed the luck that had befallen you. You refused to accept the consequences of your own petty thoughts and lazy deeds and you searched for a scapegoat on which to blame your failure. How quickly you found one.

You blamed me!

You cried that your handicaps, your mediocrity, your lack of opportunity, your failures…were the will of GOD!

You were wrong!

Let us take inventory. Let us, first, call a roll of your handicaps. For how can I ask you to build a new life lest you have the tools?

Are you blind?

Does the sun rise and fall without your witness?

No. You can see…and the hundred million receptors I have placed in your eyes enable you to enjoy the magic of a leaf, a snowflake, a pond, an eagle, a child, a cloud, a star, a rose, a rainbow…and the look of love. Count one blessing.

Are you deaf?

Can a baby laugh or cry without your attention?

No. You can hear…and the twenty-four thousand fibers I have built in each of your ears vibrate to the wind in the trees, the tides on the rocks, the majesty of an opera, a robin’s plea, children at play…and the words I love you. Count another blessing.

Are you mute?

Do your lips move and bring forth only spittle?

No. You can speak…as can no other of my creatures, and your words can calm the angry, uplift the despondent, goad the quitter, cheer the unhappy, warm the lonely, praise the worthy, encourage the defeated, teach the ignorant…and say I love you. Count another blessing.

Are you paralyzed?

Does your helpless form despoil the land?

No. You can move. You are not a tree condemned to a small plot while the wind and world abuses you. You can stretch and run and dance and work, for within you I have designed five hundred muscles, two hundred bones, and seven miles of nerve fiber all synchronized by me to do your bidding. Count another blessing.

Are you unloved and unloving?

Does loneliness engulf you, night and day?

No. No more. For now you know love’s secret, that to receive love it must be given with no thought of its return. To love for fulfillment, satisfaction, or pride is no love. Love is a gift on which no return is demanded. Now you know that to love unselfishly is its own reward. And even should love not be returned it is not lost, for love not reciprocated will flow back to you and soften and purify your heart. Count another blessing. Count twice.

Is you heart stricken?

Does it leak and strain to maintain your life?

No. Your heart is strong. Touch your chest and feel its rhythm, pulsating, hour after hour, day and night, thirty-six million beats each year, year after year, asleep or awake, pumping your blood through more than sixty thousand miles of veins, arteries, and tubing…pumping more than six hundred thousand gallons each year. Man has never created such a machine. Count another blessing.

Are you diseased of skin?

Do people turn in horror when you approach?

No. Your skin is clear and a marvel of creation, needing only that you tend it with soap and oil and brush and care. In time all steels will tarnish and rust, but not your skin. Eventually the strongest of metals will wear, with use, but not that layer which I have constructed around you. Constantly it renews itself, old cells replaced by new, just as the old you is now replaced by the new. Count another blessing.

Are your lungs befouled? Does the breath of life struggle to enter your body?

No. Your portholes of life support you even in the vilest of environments of your own making, and they labor always to filter life-giving oxygen through six hundred million pockets of folded flesh while they rid your body of gaseous wastes. Count another blessing.

Is your blood poisoned? Is it diluted with water and puss?

No. Within your five quarts of blood are twenty-two trillion blood cells and within each cell are millions of molecules and within each molecule is an atom oscillating at more than ten million times each second. Each second, two million of your blood cells die to be replaced by two million more in a resurrection that has continued since your first birth. As it has always been inside, so now it is on your outside. Count another blessing.

Are you feeble of mind? Can you no longer think for yourself?

No. Your brain is the most complex structure in the universe. Within its three pounds are thirteen billion nerve cells, more than three times as many cells as there are people on your earth. To help you file away every perception, every sound, every taste, every smell, every action you have experienced since the day of your birth, I have implanted, within your cells, more than one thousand billion billion protein molecules. Every incident in your life is there, waiting only your recall. And, to assist your brain in the control of your body I have dispersed, throughout your form, four million pain-sensitive structures, five hundred thousand touch detectors, and more than two hundred thousand temperature detectors. No nation’s gold is better protected than you are. None of your ancient wonders are greater than you.

You are my finest creation.

Within you is enough atomic energy to destroy any of the world’s great cities…and rebuild it.

Are you poor? Is there no gold or silver in your purse?

No. You are rich! Together we have just counted your wealth. Study the list. Count them again. Tally your assets!

Why have you betrayed yourself? Why have you cried that all the blessing of humanity were removed from you? Why did you deceive yourself that you were powerless to change your life? Are you without talent, senses, abilities, pleasures, instincts, sensations, and pride? Are you without hope? Why do you cringe in the shadows, a giant defeated, awaiting only sympathetic transport into the welcome void and dampness of hell?

You have so much. Your blessings overflow your cup…and you have been unmindful of them, like a child spoiled in luxury, since I have bestowed them upon you with generosity and regularity.
Answer me.

Answer yourself.

What rich man, old and sick, feeble and helpless, would not exchange all the gold in his vault for the blessings you have treated so lightly?

Know then the first secret to happiness and success–that you possess, even now, every blessing necessary to achieve great glory. They are your treasure, your tools with which to build, starting today, and the foundation for a new and better life.

Therefore, I say to you, count your blessings and know that you already are my greatest creation. This is the first law you must obey in order to perform the greatest miracle in the world, the return of your humanity from living death.

And be grateful for your lessons learned in poverty. For he is not poor who has little; only he that desires much…and true security lies not in the things one has but in the things one can do without.

Where are the handicaps that produced your failure? They existed only in your mind.

Count your blessings.

And the second law is like the first. Proclaim your rarity.

You had condemned yourself to a potter’s field, and there you lay, unable to forgive your own failure, destroying yourself with self-hate, self-incrimination, and revulsion at your crimes against yourself and others.

Are you not perplexed?

Do you not wonder why I am able to forgive your failures, your transgressions, and your pitiful demeanor…when you cannot forgive yourself?

I address you now, for three reasons. You need me. You are not one of a herd heading for destruction in a gray mass of mediocrity. And…You are a great rarity.

Consider a painting by Rembrandt or a bronze by Degas or a violin by Stradivarius or a play by Shakespeare. They have great value for two reasons: their creators were masters and they are few in number. Yet there are more than one of each of these.

On that reasoning you are the most valuable treasure on the face of the earth, for you know who created you and there is only one of you.

Never, in all the seventy billion humans who have walked this planet since the beginning of time has there been anyone exactly like you.

Never, until the end of time, will there be another such as you.

You have shown no knowledge or appreciation of your uniqueness.Yet, you are the rarest thing in the world.

From your father, in his moment of supreme love, flowed countless seeds of love, more than four hundred million in numbers. All of them, as they swam within your mother, gave up the ghost and died. All except one! You.

You alone persevered within the loving warmth of your mother’s body, searching for your other half, a single cell from your mother so small that more than two million would be necessary to fill an acorn shell. Yet, despite impossible odds, in that vast ocean of darkness and disaster, you persevered, found that infinitesimal cell, joined with it, and began a new life. Your life.

You arrived, bringing with you, as does every child, the message that I was not yet discouraged of man. Two cells now united in a miracle. Two cells, each containing twenty-three chromosomes and within each chromosome hundreds of genes, which would govern every characteristic about you, from the color of your eyes to the charm of your manner, to the size of your brain.

With all the combinations at my command, beginning with that single sperm from your father’s four hundred million, through the hundreds of genes in each of the chromosomes from your mother and father, I could have created three hundred thousand billion humans, each different from the other.

But who did I bring forth?

You! One of a kind. Rarest of the rare. A priceless treasure, possessed of
qualities in mind and speech and movement and appearance and actions as no other who ever lived, lives, or shall live.

Why have you valued yourself in pennies when you are worth a king’s ransom?

Why did you listen to those who demeaned you…and far worse, why did you believe them?

Take counsel. No longer hide your rarity in the dark. Bring it forth. Show the world. Strive not to walk as your brother walks, nor talk as your leader talks, nor labor as do the mediocre. Never do as another. Never imitate. For how do you know that you may not imitate evil; and he who imitates evil always goes beyond the example set, while he who imitates what is good always falls short. Imitate no one. Be yourself. Show your rarity to the world and they will shower you with gold. This then is the second law.

Proclaim your rarity.

And now you have received two laws.
Count your blessings! Proclaim your rarity!

You have no handicaps. You are not mediocre.
You nod. You force a smile. You admit your self-deception.

What of your next complaint?

Opportunity never seeks you?

Take counsel and it shall come to pass, for now I give you the law of success in every venture. Many centuries ago this law was given to your forefathers from a mountaintop. Some heeded the law and lo, their life was filled with the fruit of happiness, accomplishment, gold, and peace of mind. Most listened not, for they sought magic means, devious routes, or waited for the devil called luck to deliver to them the riches of life. They waited in vain…just as you waited, and then they wept, as you wept, blaming their lack of fortune on my will.

The law is simple. Young or old, pauper or king, white or black, male or female…all can use the secret to their advantage; for of all the rules and speeches and scriptures of success and how to attain it, only one method has never failed…whomsoever shall compel you to go with him one mile…go with him two.

This then is the third law…the secret that will produce riches and acclaim beyond your dreams. Go another mile!

The only certain means of success is to render more and better service than is expected of you, no matter what your task may be. This is a habit followed by all successful people since the beginning of time. Therefore I saith the surest way to doom yourself to mediocrity is to perform only the work for which you are paid.

Think not you are being cheated if you deliver more than the silver you receive. For there is pendulum to all life and the sweat you deliver, if not rewarded today, will swing back tomorrow, tenfold. The mediocre never goes another mile, for why should, he cheat himself, he thinks. But you are not mediocre. To go another mile is a privilege you must appropriate by your own initiative. You cannot, you must not avoid it. Neglect it, do only as little as the others, and the responsibility for your failure is yours alone.

You can no more render service without receiving just compensation than you can withhold the rendering of it without suffering the loss of reward. Cause and effect, means and ends, seed and fruit, these can not be separated. The effect already blooms in the cause, the end pre-exists in the means, and the fruit is always in the seed.

Go another mile.

Concern yourself not, should you serve an ungrateful master. Serve him more.
And instead of him, let it be ME who is in your debt, for then you will know that every minute, every stroke of extra service will be repaid
. And worry not, should your reward not come soon. For the longer payment is withheld, the better for you…and compound interest on compound interest is this law’s greatest benefit.

You cannot command success, you can only deserve it…and now you know the great secret necessary in order to merit its rare reward.

Go another mile!

Where is this field whence you cried there was no opportunity? Look! Look around you. See, where only yesterday you wallowed on the refuse of self-pity, you now walk tall on a carpet of gold. Nothing has changed…Except you, but you are everything.

You are my greatest miracle.

You are the greatest miracle in the world

And now the laws of happiness and success are three.

Count your Blessings! Proclaim your rarity! Go another mile!

Be patient with your progress. To count your blessings with gratitude, to proclaim your rarity with pride, to go an extra mile and then another, these acts are not accomplished in the blinking of an eye. Yet, that which you acquire with most difficulty you retain the longest; as those who earned a fortune are more careful of it than those whom it was inherited.

And fear not as you enter your new life. Every noble acquisition is attended with its risks. He who fears to encounter the one must not expect to obtain the other. Now you know you are a miracle. And there is no fear in a miracle.

Be proud. You are not the momentary whim of a careless creator experimenting in the laboratory of life. You are not a slave of forces that you cannot comprehend. You are a free manifestation of no force but mine, of no love but mine. You were made with a purpose.

Feel my hand. Hear my words. You need me…and I need you.

We have a world to rebuild…and if it requireth a miracle what is that to us?

We are both miracles and now we have each other.

Never have I lost faith in you since that day when I first spun you from a giant wave and tossed you helplessly on the sands. As you measure time that was more than five hundred million years ago. There were many models, many shapes, many sizes, before I reached perfection in you more than thirty thousand years ago. I have made no further effort to improve on you in all these years.

For how could one improve on a miracle? You were a marvel to behold and I was pleased. I gave you this world and dominion over it. Then, to enable you to reach your full potential I placed my hand upon you, once more, and endowed you with powers unknown to any other creature in the universe, even unto this day.

I gave you the power to think.

I gave you the power to love.

I gave you the power to will.

I gave you the power to laugh.

I gave you the power to imagine.

I gave you the power to create.

I gave you the power to plan.

I gave you the power to speak.

I gave you the power to pray.

My pride in you knew no bounds. You were my ultimate creation, my greatest miracle. A complete living being. One who can adjust to any climate, any hardship, any challenge. One who can manage his own destiny without any interference from me. One who can translate a sensation or perception, not by instinct, but by thought and deliberation into whatever action is best for himself and all humanity.

Thus we come to the fourth law of success and happiness…for I gave you one more power, a power so great that not even my angels possess it.

I gave you…the power to choose.

With this gift I placed you even above my angels…for angels are not free to choose sin. I gave you complete control over your destiny. I told you to determine, for yourself, your own nature in accordance with your own free will. Neither heavenly nor earthly in nature, you were free to fashion yourself in whatever form you preferred. You had the power to choose to degenerate into the lowest forms of life, but you also had the power, out of your soul’s judgment, to be reborn into the higher forms, which are divine.

I have never withdrawn your great power, the power to choose.

What have you done with this tremendous force? Look at yourself. Think of the choices you have made in your life and recall, now, those bitter moments when you would fall to your knees if only you had the opportunity to choose again.

What is past is past…and now you know the fourth great law of happiness and success…Use wisely, your power of choice.

Choose to act…rather than procrastinate.

Choose to laugh…rather than cry.

Choose to create…rather than destroy.

Choose to give…rather than steal.

Choose to persevere…rather than quit.

Choose to grow…rather than rot.

Choose to heal…rather than wound.

Choose to pray…rather than curse.

Choose to praise…rather than gossip.

Choose to live…rather than die.

Choose to love…rather than hate.

Now you know that your misfortunes were not my will, for all power was vested in you, and the accumulation of deeds and thoughts which placed you on the refuse of humanity were your doing, not mine. My gifts of power were too large for your small nature. Now you have grown tall and wise and the fruits of the land will be yours.

You are more than human being, you are human becoming.

You are capable of great wonders. Your potential is unlimited. Who else, among my creatures, has mastered fire? Who else, among my creatures has conquered gravity, has pierced the heavens, has conquered disease and pestilence and drought?

Never demean yourself again!

Never settle for the crumbs of life!

Never hide your talents, from this day hence!

Remember the child who says, “When I am a big boy.” But what is that? For the big boy says, “When I grow up.” And then grownup, he says, “When I am wed.” But to be wed, what is that, after all? The thought then changes to “when I retire.” and then, retirement comes, and he looks back over the landscape traversed; a cold wind sweeps over it and somehow he has missed it all and it is gone.

Enjoy this day, today…and tomorrow, tomorrow.

You have performed the greatest miracle in the world.

You have returned from a living death.

You will feel self-pity no more and each new day will be a challenge and a joy.

You have been born again…but just as before, you can choose failure and despair or success and happiness. The choice is yours. The choice is exclusively yours. I can only watch, as before…in pride…or sorrow.
Remember, then the four laws of happiness and success.

Count your blessings. Proclaim your rarity.
Go another mile. Use wisely your power of choice.

And one more, to fulfill the other four. Do all things with love…love for yourself, love for all others, and love for me.

Wipe away your tears. Reach out, grasp my hand, and stand straight.
Let me cut the grave cloths that have bound you.
This day you have been notified.

YOU ARE THE GREATEST MIRACLE IN THE WORLD
