Consciousness Creates. Ernest Holmes said, “Spirit creates by some inner act upon Itself”, and that inner act is thought. We create as Spirit creates, and our inner act is what we call our consciousness – our embodied, whole being belief in the thing we seek.
The manifest world is the direct out-picturing of our individual and collective consciousness. Our life and all its experiences, our world and all of its conditions, are the direct result of consciousness – our aware and unaware thought, our beliefs and ideas held in mind.
To suppose that a God could intervene, is to suppose a God that is less than unconditional and absolute Love, less than pure Freedom – a God that is judgmental, whimsical, and in whom we can not rely. But Ernest Holmes, and others, have said that there is a Law of God, and it is that which we can count on. It is true, it is consistent, predictable and steadfast. Consciousness, then, is everything. The ultimate mover and shaker and shaper of the world.
Realizing this, changes everything. Realizing this, living in this awareness, changes how we interact, what we put first, how we approach problems, how we go about impacting our world. Realizing this means that anything, and all things, are possible to those who cultivate the consciousness that can and will out-picture as the thing desired.
Learning to cultivate our consciousness for the highest Good in our LIFE and in the LIFE or our world is where the rubber meets the road. This is the practical application of spiritual principle, and it is a call to each and every one of us.
When asked … “What’s the one question you can ask that will change your life?”, most people will say … “What do you want?”. And while this is a powerful question, it does not necessarily call us to any action. “What do I INTEND?”, however implies something that is expected, anticipated, looked for, and that we have faith in the realization of. Simply put, “What do I intend?” is a question that puts us squarely in the equation. No longer is the desire just a desire, but a call to action on our part.
And what is the action that we are called to? Anything that helps us cultivate the consciousness of the thing desired! Releasing opposing thoughts, looking for the evidence of that which we intend, surrounding ourselves with those that can support our intention, and more. The inspiration and commitment to do these things comes when we move from wanting a thing to intending a thing. When we make this shift and focus our attention on cultivating the consciousness of this highest good, the entire universe conspires in support .. and miracles unfold.
Experiment with me. What consciousness are you cultivating this day? What is the greatest good you are committed to? Begin the journey of Cultivating the Consciousness that will reveal the highest good in your life, and in our world.
You are Precious.
You are Awesome
