 IN THE BEGINNING ME - Emmet Fox

 
THE first four words of the Bible are in the beginning, God. This fact is very significant because it indicates that God must be the beginning of anything worth while. Here it begins the Bible, and the text goes on to deal with the creation of the universe, showing that God, of course, is the real beginning of all things.   If you take this thought in the beginning, God, and make it the keynote of your whole life, you have found the secret of success. If you make this principle the
keynote of any particular enterprise, that enterprise must and will be successful.  The trouble with so many people is that the actual keynote of their lives is in the beginning, me. They are  not always aware of this. As a rule they do not even  suspect it; but the fact remains.  The real cause for the inharmony in the world is that so many individuals, groups, and nations, think in terms  of in the beginning, me.  Working from yourself as  the center can only bring discouragement, depression, and failure. Working from   God as the center, not nominally but actually, must bring success, for God is Creative Life.  The Bible says, "I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end"-the First and the Last. This means that where God is the beginning you will find He is also the end, that your demonstration will be complete, perfect, and final.

How You Can Change Your Life ~ James A Decker
 


 

I once read a simple explanation, by a metaphysical writer, that proved of lasting worth to me in learning how to achieve what I wanted. Perhaps this writer's conception will be helpful to you, too. He said, in effect, that man's mind may be thought of as immense streams of force  moving in concentric circles. The outer circles are the conscious, human mentality upon which are impressed the waking thoughts of daily life. Within, at the center of these circling forces, is the superconscious mind, the very core of force, the Christ dwelling in us. The casual thoughts that we think affect only the outer circles of the human mind.  But when we want something deeply-when our desire is genuine and strong enough-we touch not only the outer circles but the inner core as well. It is at such moments-when desire for our good is strongest within us-that we are in direct contact with God, that we touch Him and bring His power into action in our outer lives.  Most of us touch the inner mind, the Christ Mind, only at intervals when our desire and faith produce a combination strong enough to press through the outer circles of mere human wishing. But it is possible to be in constant touch with the limitless powers of the superconscious mind. The strong mind is the mind that is in such close contact with the Christ Mind that its limitless powers can be felt at any time. Jesus demonstrated the power of such a mind when He performed His mighty works. We can demonstrate wonderful results in our lives when we, too, learn to be at one with the Christ in us. There is no limit to the good we can claim. But we can claim our good only as we develop our ability to accept and use it. That is why concentration is such an important part of wanting. Mere formless wanting or a vague, haphazard wishing for something-anything-accomplishes little. In any situation, results are accomplished by our concentrating all our wanting on our highest good. Once this good is attained, we proceed to concentrate on another situation, and so on. This is true progress: concentrating the whole of our desire upon continuous advancement. To move forward, we must advance in the present; and if we continue to move forward, we will reach any goal we may have in view.  How would you change your life? It is up to you.
 


 

"Yesterday I was clever, so I wanted to change the world. Today I am wise, so I am changing myself."  Rumi
 

 

 

"I have conscious Divine Intelligence.  I individualize Omniscience I have direct knowledge of Truth.  I have perfect intuition.  I have spiritual perception.  I know."

 

The whole object of spiritual treatment is to increase your realization of the truth which you already accept; namely, that God can and will protect you from all harm, and that fear and error have no power when you yourself do not give it to them.  Realization means to make God absolutely real to yourself as a subconscious conviction.

 

 

 

 

  

 As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them. Ė John F. Kennedy

 

 

 

Prayer

  

Emmet Fox was always pointing out how the tremendous power of God could be released by the simple acts of prayer.  Ease of operation that accomplished miracles was a thing that always fascinated him.  He sometimes mentioned when he had been to his safe deposit box at the bank how gently the powerful, heavy door of the vault opened, and how the guard pointed out the tremendous weight of the door, yet when unlocked it could move by the slightest touch of a finger. God did not need to be besieged violently, or hammered at. "Pray gently," he would say.  Gentleness in prayer was a point he stressed, after sincerity and wholeheartedness.  He said to one student, "speak to God as gently as you would paint a picture on a cob web."

 

 

 
 
 

 

If there is a high road to demonstration, it is through praise and Thankgiving.

Giving thanks for the good you expect from your prayer is really another indication

of your faith. Jesus terminates the magnificent "Lord's Prayer" with praise to God

- "For Thine is the Kingdom, and the Power and the Glory."

Emmet Fox (From his essay Spiritual Resume)

 

 

Be thankful for what you have; youíll end up having more. If you concentrate on what you donít have, you will never, ever have enough. Oprah Winfrey

 

 

Prayer of Gratitude ~ Joseph Murphy

 

I give thanks sincerely and humbly for all the goodness, truth, and beauty which

 flow through me. I. have a grateful, uplifted heart for all the good that has come

to me in mind, body, and affairs. I radiate love and goodwill to all mankind. I

lift them up in my thought and feeling. I always show my gratitude and give thanks

for all my blessings. The grateful heart brings my mind and heart in intimate union

with the creative Power of the Cosmos. My thankful and exalted state of mind leads

me along the ways by which all good things come. "Enter into his gates with thanksgiving,

and into his courts with praise: Be thankful unto him, and bless his name."

 

For what I have received may the Lord make me truly thankful. And more truly for what I have not received. Storm Jameson

 "Dear Dr. Fox:  It is with deep appreciation that I write this letter.  Thank you for all the help you have given me by way of spiritual treatments for failing eye sight.  A recent medical examination confirms that I will not lose my vision and my sight has actually improved. I am so blessed to have had your personal prayers.  God bless you Dr. Fox for affirming the truth with me, and for giving me the gift to see clearly again."  Ernest Wagner (sent to Dr. Fox in 1943. One of thousands of letters attesting to healing by spiritual mind treatment)
