The Sponsoring Thought – the thought behind the thought – is the controlling thought. A thing is only right or wrong because you say it is. A thing is not right or wrong intrinsically. There is no truth except the truth that exists within you. Everything else is what someone is telling you. If therefore, you beg and supplicate, you lower your chances of experiencing what you are choosing because the Sponsoring Thought behind every supplication is that you do not have now what you wish. That Sponsoring Thought becomes your reality. The only Sponsoring Thought which could override this thought is the thought held in faith that God will grant whatever is asked, WITHOUT FAIL. No prayer goes unanswered. Every prayer, every thought, every statement, every feeling – is creative. One understands intuitively that the request (prayer) itself is not necessary.
The Highest Thought is always that thought which contains joy. The Clearest Words are those words which contain truth. The Grandest Feeling is that feeling which you call love. Thought is creative. Fear attracts like energy. Love is all there is. Every action taken by human beings is based in love or fear. Fear is the energy which contracts, closes down, draws in, runs, hides, hoards, harms. Love is the energy which expands, opens up, sends out, stays, reveals, shares, heals. Fear wraps our bodies in clothing, love allows us to stand naked. Fear clings to and clutches all that we have, love gives all that we have away. Fear holds close, love holds dear. Fear grasps, love lets go. Fear rankles, love soothes. Fear attacks, love amends. Every human thought, word, or deed is based in one emotion or the other. You have no choice about this, because there is nothing else from which to choose. But you have free choice about which of these to select.
You are afraid to die, and you’re afraid to live. What a way to exist. Your soul cares only about what you’re BEING while you’re doing whatever you’re doing. It is a state of BEINGNESS the soul is after, not a state of doingness. The point of life is not to get anywhere—it is to notice that you are, and have always been, already there. You are always and forever in the moment of pure creation. The point of life therefore is to create—who and what you are, and then to experience that. Move forward with no second-guessing, no guilt trips, no hesitation. Your purpose is to recreate yourself anew in each moment. Passion is the love of turning being into action. It fuels the engine of creation. It changes concepts to experience…. Never deny passion, for that is to deny Who You Are, and Who You Truly Want To Be. Stop looking all over the place for “the answers” - whatever they are - and start looking for the questions - the inquiries which are most important in your life, and give them answers. You do not live each day to discover what it holds for you, but to create it. Life begins at the end of our comfort zone.
Never resist anything. If you think that by your resistance you will eliminate it, think again. You only plant is more firmly in place. Have I not told you that all thought is creative? The way to reduce the pain which you associate with earthly experiences and events—both yours and those of others—is to change the way you behold them. Know and understand that there will be challenges and difficult times. Don’t try to avoid them. Welcome them. Gratefully. Cultivate the technique of seeing all problems as opportunities. Opportunities to be, and decide, Who You Really Are. True masters are those who’ve chosen to make a life rather than a living. The purpose of a relationship is not to have another who might complete you; but to have another with whom you might share your completeness.
