Reaping What You Sow

The Power of Positive Action and Mindset

In life, the principle of cause and effect is ever-present. As the saying goes, "Whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap." This age-old wisdom, eloquently expressed by Ella Wheeler Wilcox, highlights the importance of our actions and attitudes. Wilcox encapsulated this law of mind with the words, "Give to the world the best you have, and the best will come back to you." This profound truth reminds you that by giving love, faith, and your best efforts, you invite positive energy and experiences into your life.

To adjust means to fit, adapt, or put in working order. To adjust to life effectively, you must become a channel through which the life principle flows freely, harmoniously, joyously, and lovingly. The key to solving your problems lies in acquainting yourself with the divine presence and power within you. As the wisdom states, "Acquaint now thyself with Him and be at peace, and good shall come unto thee."

Establish a regular practice to harness this divine presence. Identify the most pressing problem you face and decide to solve it by realizing that the infinite intelligence within you knows the way out. This intelligence is responsive by nature, ensuring that your answer is as certain as the moon rising tonight.

For instance, a young man troubled by a poverty mindset found no answers to his prayers for prosperity because his fear of poverty dominated his thoughts. He learned to shift his focus by praying, "I know there is only one source, the life principle, from which all things flow. I am a focal point of the divine presence. My mind is open and receptive. I am a free-flowing channel for harmony, beauty, guidance, wealth, and the riches of the universe."

By affirming these truths consistently, he transformed his life in a month. This change illustrates the power of impressing positive thoughts on your subconscious mind, which then expresses them in your reality. As Aristotle noted, resistance is the cause of every monstrosity. A woman, who harbored resentment towards her ex-husband, developed a serious lesion. She was blocking the healing presence within her by resisting love and harmony. Once she prayed for divine love to fill her mind and heart, her lesion disappeared, demonstrating that divine love dissolves everything unlike itself.

To live a harmonious life, you must adjust your thoughts to be peaceful, loving, and based on eternal truths. When you get along with yourself, you will naturally get along with others. If you harbor resentment, fear, or self-condemnation, you will project these feelings onto others, resulting in poor relationships. Instead, be pliable, flexible, and adjustable. Realize that the thoughts and emotions of others cannot disturb you unless you allow them to.

Ask yourself, "What is my aim in life?" Let the answer be peace, harmony, and divine wisdom. When you align with these aims, you will not be disturbed by the actions or opinions of others. Affirm that divine peace and harmony govern your life, and you will find that external disturbances lose their power over you.

Remember the lesson of the flowing stream. Water flows around obstacles without resistance, eventually reaching the ocean. Similarly, approach challenges with the understanding that the infinite intelligence within you knows only the answer. By embracing this attitude, you will overcome difficulties and move onward and upward.

An engineer uses a powerful affirmation: "The streams of life, power, wisdom, intelligence, joy, and peace flow through me like a golden river, revealing to me everything I need to know and giving me the strength to complete all assignments in divine order." This affirmation ensures that he meets every challenge successfully.

Do not try to manipulate or change others. Allow them their beliefs and peculiarities. When you judge not, you experience no suffering. Establish the right relationship with the life principle by allowing it to express through you abundantly. If you harbor negative emotions, you block the life flow and experience mental and physical disorders. Be an open channel for the divine presence, letting your light shine brightly.

A lonely person, for example, shuts out friends and experiences isolation. By recognizing and exalting the divinity within and saluting the divinity in others, you radiate friendship, love, and goodwill. This shift in attitude attracts friends and positive relationships.

In conclusion, the key to a fulfilling life lies in adjusting your mindset to align with divine principles. Embrace positive thoughts, affirm your connection with the infinite, and let the life principle flow through you freely. By doing so, you will experience harmony, joy, and abundance in every aspect of your life.
