To answer the question we might say that
"lack" appears as an empty bank account, the absence
of a loving relationship, futility in achieving life's goals, or
a short- age of vitality in the physical system. Looking at lack
from another perspective, let's imagine a hole in the ground or
an empty cup. It looks as though nothing is in the hole or cup,
but that's not true because "nothing" cannot exist.
Therefore, there is no such thing as lack, scarcity or shortage.
The hole and the cup are filled to overflowing with omnipresent
creative \energy, and so is our bank account, the
"space" between our relationships, the seeming
"vacancy" in fulfilling self-expression, and the
perceived "void" in the physical body.
In essence, where there seems to be nothing,
there is something, which means we don't have to worry about an
insufficiency that doesn't exist. Looking at things from the
Divine Perspective of our Withinness, we see there are no
problems that have not already been solved, no needs that
haven't been met. Yes, I've written and talked about this
before, but I think it needs to be addressed again.
Let's look to Source and
the truth of the one Presence and Power living as us. Why
do we have an insufficiency in any activity of life? Because we
believe--on some level of consciousness--in two powers,
one for us, another against us; one limitless, one restricting.
It's the old God-and-the- devil-ego thing, yet the truth is that
one is the only power, the other a non-power. Take
money for example. If we are worrying about not having enough,
we're believing in the appearance of lack, a non-power that does
not exist in the universal scheme of things. It goes back to
thinking more about trying to get money than realizing the Source
of money, a focus on the effect instead of the
continuous Givingness of the Presence within as Cause. We've got
to put the horse and the cart in the right place.
Same thing regarding
relationships, creative fulfillment and the physical body. The
more we concentrate, contemplate and meditate on Spirit within
as the Source of all our good, the more the good
multiplies. This is the Alignment Principle where we become the
instruments through which Spirit expresses as abundance, loving
relation-ships, creative success and wholeness. But if we are
concentrating on personally improving things in our external
world, we are taking on a responsibility that is not ours. This
trying to "make things happen" is a sure sign of fear.
Isn't it better to fearlessly depend on Source and
the Omniscient Love flowing through us to fulfill the Law of Full
I'll never forget those words
that spoke to my mind years ago: Don't fret over a problem
that doesn't exist. I haven't given up
"fretting" completely, but I've found it to be almost
magical to back out of the concern about something in the outer
world, refocus on Source and remind myself that
since the problem has already been solved for me, there's no
longer a problem. The proof of this has been shown to me
countless times, particularly when I see, feel and live the no-
problem, no-need reality from my highest vision of the ideal
We should go to God within
for only the experience of feeling and knowing God, not to bail
us out from some miscreated external condition. Let's vigorously
activate our faith, trust the Divine Will, see as Spirit sees,
look through Spiritual Lens and know that every need has been
met because that's the way the Creative Intelligence of Mother-
Substance works. We're never left hanging out there on a limb.
The energy of all-knowing Love is eternally flowing through us
to literally appear as everything we have chosen for a life more
abundant. When we believe this, stay in the Flow and feel it
radiating through us, our world turns right-side up.
This is more than
"letting go and letting God." It's having a deep and
abiding personal relationship with our Holiness, to where
nothing else really matters.
Think on these thoughts from The Jesus
I am consciously one with the Infinite Mind
within, and through this awareness pulsating throughout my
being, I understand Omniscience. My Spirit knows all, sees my
every need, and with endless love has already fulfilled that
In truth there is nothing to ask for. I
simply have to keep my awareness on Omni- science and Its divine
activity. This activity is Omnipotent, the one power, pouring
forth from me as a mighty fountain to reveal and express a fill,
complete, and joyous life. I am aware of this. I understand it.
I see it. I know it.
The Truth I see in my life, my world, is Mind
in perfect manifestation, whether in structure, thing,
life-form, condition or experience. Nothing that is good and
beautiful is lacking, and whatever that is not of God does not
exist. I see a perfect life and a perfect world, because there
is nothing opposed to God, and Truth has no opposite.
Let the sound of Yes echo
throughout your being!
