The Hardest Work

Tuesday, February 10, 2009

I have said that men get rich by doing things in a Certain Way; and in order to do so, men must become able to think in a certain way.

A man's way of doing things is the direct result of the way he thinks about things.

To do things in a way you want to do them, you will have to acquire the ability to think the way you want to think; this is the first step toward getting rich.

To think what you want to think is to think TRUTH, regardless of appearances.

Every man has the natural and inherent power to think what he wants to think, but it requires far more effort to do so than it does to think the thoughts which are suggested by appearances. To think according to appearances is easy; to think truth regardless of appearances is laborious, and requires the expenditure of more power than any other work man is called upon to perform.

There is no labor from which most people shrink as they do from that of sustained and consecutive thought; it is the hardest work in the world. This is especially true when truth is contrary to appearances. Every appearance in the visible world tends to produce a corresponding form in the mind which observes it; and this can only be prevented by holding the thought of the TRUTH.

To look upon the appearance of disease will produce the form of disease in your own mind, and ultimately in your body, unless you hold the thought of the truth, which is that there is no disease; it is only an appearance, and the reality is health.

To look upon the appearances of poverty will produce corresponding forms in your own mind, unless you hold to the truth that there is no poverty; there is only abundance.

To think health when surrounded by the appearances of disease, or to think riches when in the midst of appearances of poverty, requires power; but he who acquires this power becomes a MASTER MIND. He can conquer fate; he can have what he wants.

This power can only be acquired by getting hold of the basic fact which is behind all appearances; and that fact is that there is one Thinking Substance, from which and by which all things are made.

Then we must grasp the truth that every thought held in this substance becomes a form, and that man can so impress his thoughts upon It as to cause them to take form and become visible things.

When we realize this, we lose all doubt and fear, and we know that we can create what we want to create; we can get what we want to have, and can become what we want to be.

If this wallpaper image represented the ruins and the remains of your life, your finances, your hopes and dreams, your castle, your home... could you really look at it and affirm TRUTH? And if you could, what would that truth be? What would you be saying to yourself about it?

Before I read your words beneath the picture, I imagined that place to be full of mystical promise and I saw myself exploring the area. Perhaps I CAN see TRUTH! Maybe my spirit is jaded but if the overwhelming desire of your soul is to see the good in all, perhaps Mr. Wattles' experiment CAN work. I see what he means about it being hard work. I would almost need to tie a string on my finger or carry around index card or something to remind myself constantly not to allow poverty based thoughts to enter my consciousness. This week is especialy challenging, which is perhaps part of my bitterness and skepticism. No gas, no lunch money for daughter, outstanding checks hovering and waiting to bit my account...3 days left until payday and riding on a wing and a prayer. OK Mr. Wattles, I will spend the next 3 days in abundance!!! So be it! AMEN!!

Karla - you have got me so beat on this one!! I looked at this picture and immediately saw birdshit on the rocks and right away I started thinking about how "shitty" my life seems right now.

This is HARD WORK!

I may need to put post-it notes everywhere! What I find hardest is the NO HOT WATER - it's hard to be thinking positive when you can't even take a shower after a long hard day at a dog grooming shop!
