You Are It!

Though there is us nothing “unspiritual” about having money or worldly possessions, there is nothing more spiritual about doing without them. Worldly austerity does not necessarily reflect spiritual prosperity. True prosperity is our awareness of the fullness of Life that lives in us that can never be limited to or measured by the material possessions we may (or may not) choose to have around us. Nothing in the world can cause us to become more or less the Unlimited Spiritual Being we are created to be, and already are even while we are living this human experience. Only we, our self, have the power to limit our experience of life by withholding who we are, clinging to what we have, and restricting what we give.

The Power of Creation is at the center of everything, including you and me. Life (our Llfe) is done unto us as we believe our life to be because Life is always responding to our thought. Every thought has a vibration, and the Law of Attraction responds to that vibration. That is why there is no limit to our experience of this miracle we call life except the limitations we set with our thinking. Our very thoughts either attract or repel the good we desire. When our thoughts are expansive, and filled with love for our self and life, we attract to us the forms, bodies, expressions, and experiences that match, or correspond to, the magnitude of our thinking. Likewise, when our thoughts are fearful, small and protective, we attract to us the forms, bodies, expressions, and experiences that seem to confirm our fears and increase them. (Read more…)

Now Give It!

Freedom, success and prosperity belong to all of us because the Spirit of Love that created us, created us out of Itself to live Life abundantly, without limitation. What we already have can’t be earned. No matter what we’ve done (or haven’t done) so far in our human experience, we can’t lose what we’ve already been given. We live in Universe that loves us, and gives to us unconditionally. Success and prosperity may mean something different to each of us, but we have all been given the freedom to express It in our own way. In fact, there is only one thing that can get in our way of that expression…us, and the judgments we place on our self and others as to how we, and they, should express Life. We can’t experience the unrestricted flow of Abundant Good in our life if we are restricting that flow by withholding the generosity of our Spirit from anyone (including self).

All we truly need to do to experience the Unlimited Gifts of the Kingdom of Heaven within us—the spiritual attributes of unrestricted love in our heart, unconditional peace in our mind, uninhibited happiness in our relationships, unimpeded good health in the body, and every good feeling we desire to feel is…nothing except to stop crowding It out of our awareness and experience with conditional, limiting, and unloving thoughts that take up space in our mind and heart so that there is not room enough for us to receive our Good.

You Got It!

It is only when our negative self-concepts of guilt, unworthiness, and unlovability block It that Abundant Good doesn’t seem to flow easily to us. We can look at the start of a new year as a wonderful symbolic opportunity for us to experience a greater sense of freedom and prosperity by writing a new chapter in our book of life—a love story to our self about our self. If we stay attached to our “someone done me wrong” story (even though it’s so last year!), and if we insist on the retelling of limitation, difficulty, unhappiness, disharmony, mistreatment, and poor health, we convince our self that what we’ve been through is not only a drama worth retelling because it’s so juicy, but that it is all there is for us to know about our self in this human experience.

Unless we stop retelling our poor pitiful me stories about how life goes for us in the world—poor lonely me, poor misunderstood me, poor busy me, poor unhealthy me, poor in resources me; unless we change our mind about who we are and stop denying our spiritual greatness, we will miss out on telling the juiciest story of all—the true life adventure story of the Spiritually Prosperous Me we are created to be.

No matter how much we may wish for a new story to unfold in our life, our life will always look like the story we’re telling today. One of the ways that we can start to tell a new one is by not continuing to try to “kill off the villain” of yesterday’s story! When our thoughts are focused on who and what we want to get rid of in our life, when we spend mental energy wishing, hoping and praying that whoever or whatever is bothering us will disappear from our life, we’re not telling a story of the life we want to live. We’re just retelling the story of the life we don’t want. (Read more…)

Ask For It!

Often we think of prosperity as merely having a lot of money or material possessions. And though there is nothing “un-spiritual” about money or worldly things because everything visible (including cold hard cash) comes from the same Invisible Source, the deeper Essence of prosperity is far more vast than can ever be measured simply by material possessions. Spiritual prosperity includes loving thoughts, peace of mind, happy relationships, good health, joyous activities, and every good experience that we can imagine to be ours. It is the rich sense of well being and freedom we feel when we know we are a spiritual being living in an ever-giving Spiritual Universe.

Our awareness that we are already One with our Source, and that we free to be the self we are created to be wherever we are, allows our prosperous spirit to flow into our human experience from the inside out, unimpeded and unrestricted by doubt. Spiritual Prosperity, if we are open to It, evolves our experience of life. We live without compromise because we no longer depend on a world that appears separate from us, but rather on our awareness of the unlimited Kingdom within us. (Read more…)

Willingness

Are you willing to prosper? Are you open and non-resistant to the Good that is Naturally yours as a Spiritual Being? William Diedrich, an exceptional speaker and author of “Human Adulthood,” asks these questions. If you’d like to discover how to answer these questions for yourself, and bring creative power into your day-to-day life, listen to this podcast. Mr. Diedrich’s book is available at the Spiritual Awakenings Bookstore at The Life Enrichment Center.

Pie in the Sky

Though our theme this month has been “Prosperity,” our conversation all month has been about Love. Because Love is all there Is, Love is Inner Wealth. If we love only a little, if we love with conditions attached, if we withhold love from anyone, for any reason, we are poor in spirit no matter how much “cold hard cash” we may have!

A Course of Love reminds us that our recognition of what Love is will return us to God and our Self. Our understanding that Love is the Source and Cause of all things, and our choice to live in harmony with that Cause, allows the Joyous Freedom of our Inner Being to be Present in our day-to-day life. Joy becomes the vibrational environment in which we consciously live, and It attracts abundant good to us wherever we are.

Until we are in harmony with Love, and the Unconditional Joy It brings, our power and freedom to create the life we desire to live while we are here in human form will be just “pie in the sky.” We are here to meet our beautiful, boundless Self in one another, to love and accept one another as our Self, and to co-create the Glory of God through our amazing life on earth.

If you would like to learn how to let Love enrich your life from the inside out, if you would like to be part of the co-creation of a world that works for everyone, I invite you to listen to this podcast. And, join us for our Sunday Celebration Services at 11AM. We support the TRUTH in YOU!
