Increasing Life

Thursday, February 12, 2009

You must get rid of the last vestige of the old idea that there is a Deity whose will it is that you should be poor, or whose purposes may be served by keeping you in poverty.

The Intelligent Substance which is All, and in all, and which lives in All and lives in you, is a consciously Living Substance. Being a consciously living substance, It must have the natural and inherent desire of every living intelligence for increase of life. Every living thing must continually seek for the enlargement of its life, because life, in the mere act of living, must increase itself.

A seed, dropped into the ground, springs into activity, and in the act of living produces a hundred more seeds; life, by living, multiplies itself. It is forever Becoming More; it must do so, if it continues to be at all.

Intelligence is under this same necessity for continuous increase. Every thought we think makes it necessary for us to think another thought; consciousness is continually expanding. Every fact we learn leads us to the learning of another fact; knowledge is continually increasing. Every talent we cultivate brings to the mind the desire to cultivate another talent; we are subject to the urge of life, seeking expression, which ever drives us on to know more, to do more, and to be more.

In order to know more, do more, and be more we must have more; we must have things to use, for we learn, and do, and become only by using things. We must get rich, so that we can live more.

The desire for riches is simply the capacity for larger life seeking fulfillment; every desire is the effort of an unexpressed possibility to come into action. It is power seeking to manifest which causes desire. That which makes you want more money is the same as that which makes the plant grow; it is Life seeking fuller expression.

The One Living Substance must be subject to this inherent law of all life; it is permeated with the desire to live more; that is why it is under the necessity of creating things.

The One Substance desires to live more in you; hence it wants you to have all the things you can use.

It is the desire of God that you should get rich. He wants you to get rich because he can express himself better through you if you have plenty of things to use in giving him expression. He can live more in you if you have unlimited command of the means of life.

How can life find greater expression in you?
What things do you need in order to fully express all that you have within?
If you were a plant - what would you be wanting? water? fertilizer? growing space? sunshine? weeding? what?

Life can find greater expression in my by my becoming more of that which I Am, which is an expression of those things which I want, and seek, and ask to have.

What i need in order to fully express all that I have within is confidence and guilt-free conscoious joy which is the pure state of being that we have been given and which I must manifest through maintaining a state of clarity, presence, and peace of mind.

If i were a plant, I would want to be in harmony with all that surrounds me, and to express my life in receiving the sun, the nutrients, and the interconnectedness with all that surrounds me in nature without regard for anything other than to be that which I Am.

If I were a plant... hmmm... if I was a plant, I would need warmth and sunshine and room to grow, I'd also need something to grow IN and ON - support or structure of some sort.... I'm kind of thinking of myself as some kind of climbing vine - maybe a morning glory - needing plenty of freedom and something to cling to.

This was fun - now I'm wondering how to translate it into real life.
