Lau Tzu taught non-action – “Don’t just do something, stand there!” Practice not doing and everything will fall into place. As Jesus said, “Seek ye first the kingdom of God, and all these things will be added to you.” They were teaching, “Move from mental control to the spiritual power within.”
Our beliefs express in the world around us. When we see something not right out there – something out there that is limited – then there is something inside that is limited. Go within. HeartMath has shown scientifically that the heart can change the entire body. Spiritual power flows from the core or your being. Let it flow and it changes what’s out there.
It isn’t easy. If I’m going to change, I will need to let go of something in here and open to a greater download, a greater expression of the divine presence and power within. Affirm, “I release that which no longer serves me. I open to my highest good.”
Attune to that spiritual self. Tune it in with the power of prayer. Much prayer uses the mind, but focusing on the feeling of ease skips right to a core vibration of the soul. It is there we know of the connection – a tremendous feeling of divine order and flow. In The Prospering Power of Love, by Catherine Ponder, we learn to use the power of prayer to move to that inner change. Instead of moving something “out there”, move inside. Do the inner work. Focus and express the spiritual energy of that greater good, that greater healing. Then the energy changes around a remembered experience, a hardness in the heart.
Open to guidance; move to enlightenment. Attune to the perfection of the divine consciousness – to that place within ourselves of powerful transformation. It’s yours, and you deserve to have it!
I release that which no longer serves me. I open to my highest good.
