We are only Subject to What We Hold in Mind

The basic dictum to comprehend is that the body obeys the mind; therefore, the body tends to manifest what the mind believes. The belief may be held consciously or unconsciously.  This dictum follows from the law of consciousness that states:  We are only subject to what we hold in mind. The only power or energy that anything has over us is the power of belief that we give it. By “power,” we mean energy and the will to believe.

Truth

All the truth that is necessary to know has already been spoken by actual beings on this planet.  All Great Teachers proclaim the same truth, for there is none other.  The Radiance of the Self within beckons one on and provides spiritual inspiration and strength.  The Presence of God within is the source of one’s existence; therefore, to seek one’s source is in accord with God’s Will.

Accept Limitation Rather than Fault

It is helpful to realize that the anger is not at what ‘is’, but at what ‘is not’.  We are angry not because someone is selfish or stingy, as we think, but actually because they are not considerate, generous, or loving.  If recontextualized is done in this way, then people are seen as being limited rather than wrong.  Each person has developed only up to a specific point in their evolution, and therefore, it is easier to see and accept limitation rather than fault.

The Radiance of the Self

The desire to search for God or enlightenment is already evidence of having been spiritually inspired.  As the ego vacates, the Radiance of the Self uplifts and inspires.  Henceforth, it is not possible to be alone.  At the critical moment, spiritual commitment and dedication bring forth the unseen help of the Great Beings who are no longer in physical bodies – yet their energy stands at the great doorway of the final moment when one is sustained by the Holy Spirit and the wisdom of the teachers of Truth.
