Another Grateful Visit By The Author Of The Science of Getting Rich - Wallace Wattles

These are some of the notes I found interesting from the material written by Wallace D. Wattles.

“hold the vision of yourself in the right business, with the purpose to get into it, and the faith that you will get into it, and are getting into it; but act in your present business.

Use your present business as the means of getting a better one, and use your present environment as the means of getting into a better one.

You can advance only by being larger than your present place; and no man is larger than his present place who leaves undone any work pertaining to that place.

The world is advanced only by those who more than fill their places.

Do, every day, all that can be done that day.

If, now, it is possible for you to make each act an efficient one, you see again that the getting of riches is reduced to an exact science, like mathematics.

You can make each act a success, because all power is working with you; and all power cannot fail.

…successful action is cumulative in its results.”

Change Your Thinking, So That Your Circumstances Can Change As Well

These are notes I took from The Science of Getting Rich by Wallace Wattles that I highlighted due to their relevance in my life.

Notes I thought I should share.

"No one of the 3 –body, mind, or soul – can live fully if either of the others is cut short of full life and expression.

Desire is possibility seeking expression, or function seeking performance.

There is abundance of opportunity for the man who will go with the tide instead of trying to swim against it.

The Formless Stuff responds to the needs of man; it will not let him be without any good thing.

To think what you want to think is to think Truth, regardless of appearance.

There is one Thinking Substance from which and by which all things are made.

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.

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

…give to every man more than you take from him

…claim it as already yours.

If you fix upon your consciousness the fact that the desire you feel for the possession of riches is one with the desire of Omnipotence for more complete expression, your faith becomes invincible."

"The Way You See The Problem, Is The Problem."

I need to change my perception of life.

I need to change the way I see things.

To see life as Abundant and Unlimited rather than basing my beliefs on the lack and limitation I see around me.

Why?

I have come to believe in a theory taken from a book by Wallace D. Wattles that: Life Is Developing.

Life is in a continuous flow and motion of growth.

Life is more.

That is why we have advanced from the Stone Age to our this current Age.

That is why seeds grow and develop into oak trees for example.

That is why one sentence grows and develops into the best selling religious book of all time.

That is why from sitting I learnt how to crawl, to stand, to walk, to run, and to fly.

A motion of development that is so easy to do due to its alignment to the laws of nature.

A law of motion.

A law, I believe, I should not swim against in order for me to reap the benefits that come from it.

That come from being “natural”.

And it is because of this motion that will be forever growing and continuously in the state of development that for me to believe in terms of lack and limitation, when I actually live in a world that keeps on supplying the fortunate with more, would only be confining me within self constructed walls of lack.

This improper and sinful perception will not only keep me poor financially but mentally and spiritually so.

With the dissatisfaction and frustration and resentment and depression that comes along with it.

A cycle of negativity that will keep me burying myself alive and blocking me from noticing the lifelines I would need to scoop me out of the hell I have constructed and thus exposed to.

All because of the way I see things, my perception.

A lifetime conditioning that needs to be “de-conditioned” through methods like Autosuggestion explained in detail in the book Think and Grow Rich where I can influence my subconscious mind through resilient self suggestion.

And prayer.

Keeping in mind that by asking I am stating that I don't have that which I ask for.

Thus pushing it further away from me.

I should rather be thankful for its attainment even before it comes to me physically.

The strength of the emotion of gratitude I hold while giving this prayer of thanksgiving will determine how fast God show me a way of bringing that which I am thankful for to me.

In this case a perception change.

This exercise will also strengthen my Faith.

Something which needs much exercise.

The power of Gratitude

Make Every Experience Inspirational

I read somewhere that “humans are creatures of habit.”

I see how true that is from the restlessness I feel 5 hours in my evening shift.

Something I told myself I wouldn’t do after going through a bit of Neale Donald Walsch’s “Conversations with God.”

Which states something along the lines of: By making a statement or judgement on a particular thing, I am in effect judging myself.

This is so if I believe in the theory that I am the creator of all the things that I encounter in my life.

It’s like creating a sculptor and saying: “This is a bad sculpture and it makes me feel depressed”…then it is not the sculpture that is “inadequate” or flawed, but it is the craftsman.

Now coming back to the period of boredom I encounter 5 hours in my shift…

This is not a true reflection of me.

But here I am, at work, counting my toes.

Not literally of course, so not to cause a scare.

I guess a less conscious mind would continue to allow his environment influence him, the way I am, instead of influencing the environment.

Something I have been guilty of for the past months pre-Sir Richard Branson’s “Screw It, Let's Do It” and my latest being from N.D. Walsch’s “Conversations with God” mentioned above.

Material I would recommend to improve how to deal with your work life and your spiritual life.

A habit I would rather jump in.

A habit of seeking for opulence rather than being confined to believe in the illusion of lack.

Gratitude – A Chapter From The Science Of Getting Rich

“Convey an idea of your wants to the Formless Substance.

Relate yourself to Formless Intelligence in a harmonious way.
  • 1st believe that there is one Intelligent Substance from which all things proceed.

  • 2nd believe that this Substance gives you everything you desire

  • 3rd relate yourself to it by feeling of deep and profound gratitude.

…the nearer we live to the source of wealth, the more wealth we shall receive…

…the mental attitude of gratitude draws the mind closer in touch with the source from which the blessings come.

Gratitude…will keep you in close harmony with creative thought and prevent you from falling unto competitive thought.

The Law of Gratitude is the natural principle that action and reaction are always equal, and in opposite directions.

The grateful outreaching of your mind in thankful praise to the Supreme is a liberation or expenditure of force; it cannot fail to reach that to which it addressed, and the reaction is an instantaneous movement towards you.

If your gratitude is strong and constant; the reaction in Formless Substance will be strong and continuous.

…for it is gratitude that keeps you connected with Power.

Without gratitude you cannot long keep from dissatisfied thought regarding things as they are.

You fix attention upon the common, the ordinary, the poor, and the squalid and mean; and your mind takes the form of these things.

Then you will transmit these forms or mental images to the formless, and the common, the poor, the squalid and mean will come to you.

…to fix your attention on the best is to surround yourself with the best and become the best.

The Creative Power within us makes us into the image of that to which we give our attention.

We are Thinking Substance, and thinking Substance always takes the form of that which thinks.

The grateful mind is constantly fixed upon the best; therefore it tends to become the best; it takes the form or character of the best.

faith is born of gratitude.

The grateful mind continually expects good things, and expectation becomes faith.

It is necessary, then, to cultivate the habit of being grateful for every good thing that comes to you; and to give thanks continuously.

And because all things have contributed to your advancement, you should include all things in your gratitude”



Above are notes I have summarised from The Science Of Getting Rich written by Wallace D Wattles.

Be Careful Who You Take Advice From...Myself Included

I need to train my mind into not accepting other people's motivated opinions just because they present them as fact.

Because if I do accept them without contest then I would be denying myself the right to life.

"It is pointless doing...because the end result will always be the same."

In such cases if "the end result is always the same" then the problem is with the method...

And who is to say that the person giving this "advice" has the grounds to do so.

Heck, she might even just be passing along the same "advice" she received from someone who also gave up at the first sign of defeat.

Not to discredit the thoughts I write in this online journal of mine, mind you.

But the good thing about opinions is that they may give you possible obstacles to be on the lookout for.

And for the mere fact that they a called "obstacles" means they can be Overcome!

Things which discouraged those who fell before you when met with adversity, not being aware that such adversities are the stepping stones towards success.

That one key that would open the door that leads you directly to your desired goal.

The floodgates of all your wealth.

A goal that has not been reached because you dropped your head in disappointment, missing the hand out God/Universe had prepared for you.

You start all over again and you fail, you start all over again and you fail, you start all over again and you fail,

...you fail,

...you fail,

...you fail,

...you fail,

...you fail,

...you fail,

until you run out of things to fail on.

And that is one of the things that will make you a Success...because you failed ...to quit.

What I find amusing is that some of these opinions that deny you the possibility to advance come from people who you trust, like family, spouse, friend or someone who you respect and hold close to your heart.

Wallace D. Wattles wrote "the right to life is to develop."

That is why I believe no one has the right diminish the light that will grow into the born fire that burns your desire and passion.

Regardless of their protective, caring or loving intentions.

Just because she could not do it, does not mean it cannot be done.

I need to remind myself that if I feel that I am beat and I have fallen, that there is a lesson that I have missed during fall.

And that this is were all my senses should be up, because that is the signal that I have been waiting for.

It has arrived, and I dare not drop my head in dissapointment or else I'll miss it.

A lesson I need to learn and master in order for me to get back on my BMX bicycle.

And ride out of this rat race like the other children.

And that is why I need to focus on this one idea and ride it out until I achieve.

Desire - Focus - Persistence - Faith - Success.

Desire - Focus - Persistence - Faith - Success.

Desire - Focus - Persistence - Faith - Success.

Desire - Focus - Persistence - Faith - Success.

Persistence - Persistence - Persistence - Persistence Persistence - Persistence - Persistence...


Success.
