We Should Think of The "Greater Part Of You" as a sleeping giant...awakening by any touch of connection.
to good. God then becomes their top "agenda item," until the next obstacle comes around.
I'm not going to knock these people.
What is sad? They don't realize that God always is ..the greater part of themselves.
God IS the greater part of all we are at any stage in our lives!

When we are able to fully connect to this greater part of ourselves during times of crisis and through prayer, seeming miracles occur. Endorphins are released into our bodies...we relax, we feel peace...we become whole.

On a daily basis, though, we can reach in and connect to this infinite source of power, strength and goodness within us.
Any time of day or night, in any given moment, we can find the same peace, we can relax, we can become the wholeness we seek...were we to reach in and simply connect.
In "The Dynamic Laws of Prayer," Catherine Ponder, a master spiritual teacher, writes,
"The shocking truth about prayer is that all prayers are answered by our loving father. Whenever a prayer seems to remain unanswered, you can be sure that somewhere there is a closed door between you and the Infinite Giver."
I have lived this.
|GOD SENT LOVE IN A BAG OF POTATOES: This potato showed up in a bag of potatoes on a day several months back when I was having a challenging day.|
Without a doubt...seeing the "love potato" stilled my fears of the moment...immediately.
As I proudly and gratefully celebrate yet another birthday tomorrow, I've made myself a promise: I desire and expect only the highest and best experiences in my life.
"What I know and what I've learned is that when I expect and desire only the highest and best experiences in my life...(doing so without fear or doubt, but with absolute faith... and without sharing my desires with anyone else...especially those who would disparage those desires)...then only the highest and best experiences show up in my life."We can all look back and see that our lives have been a true reflection of our thinking and our expectations. Pay attention. Look back. Trace back.. and see... when certain experiences showed up in your life.

Was it when you were fearful that a negative experience showed up?
It's no longer a mystery to me as to why we experience life the way we do. The simple truth: what we think about, we bring about!
Dr. Wayne Dyer, our blessed and recently departed spiritual teacher, explains this phenomenon in his book "Inspiration." "We're in a system that's directed by a Supreme Intelligence, and we're part of that system," Dyer writes. "Everything is on purpose."

"There's nothing more powerful than an idea whose time has come," Dyer writes.
He recommends that we try these personal affirmations to tune into things we desire and expect. "I desire it. It's on its way. there's nothing for me to worry about. '
In his book, "As A Man Thinketh [circa 1903]," from "Mind is The Master," James Allen reflects the same thoughts. Allen writes: "A man is literally what he thinks, his character being the complete sum of all his thoughts."
"As a plant springs from, and could not be without, the seed, so every act of a man springs from the hidden seeds of thought, and could not have appeared without them. This applies equally to those acts called, 'spontaneous' and 'unpremeditated' as to those which are deliberately executed.

"Act is the blossom of thought, and joy and suffering are its fruits; thus does a man garner in the sweet and bitter fruitage of his own husbandry."As a progressive and evolving being, man is where he is so that he may learn and grow. Allen continues. "And as he learns the spiritual lesson which any circumstance contains for him, it passes away and gives place to other circumstances."
I have found that the more I have grown in wisdom and understanding, the less I want to speak. In this vein, I then choose to write no more on this subject of thoughts and life's circumstances. But I share this Allen poem with you to ponder and become wise about your own life.
"Thought in the mind hath made us. What we are
By thought was wrought and built. If a man's mind
Hath evil thoughts, pain comes on him as comes the

In purity of thought, joy follows him
As his own shadow--sure."

Over the years, especially this year that just passed for me, I have learned more than anything else that this Soul...is indeed, the greater part of me.
