“Still you find it difficult to believe that what is possible depends upon what you can imagine being possible. You must cease to see the difficulty and begin to see the ease with which what you can imagine becomes reality. (A Course of Love, 23.17)”
Affirmation: “I would imagine what I wish to see created.”
1 – Law of Attraction
This is the way that A Course of Love states the law of attraction, or like creates like. If we imagine strongly enough, we will have that which we seek. If we imagine good, good will come to us. In a warning, we also must realize that if we imagine the bad, the bad may also come to us (though God protects us to a degree).
2 – Imaging the Good
There is no difficulty is imaging the good. We can steep ourselves in A Course in Miracles and A Course of Love, the Bible, or inspirational literature. We can look to others for guidance that will help to take us home. We are not bereft in this world of ways in which we can learn how to imagine the good. We need only to look around ourselves to see how to create the good.
“Create” is the operative word here, for in Christ-consciousness we are creating rather than “making.” And we all have had, by now, glimpses of Christ-consciousness, or we would not have read this far or studied A Course of Love through the passages indicated. We are ready. And we will have ease in what we create from our imaginings.
4 – Be Careful of What You Dwell Upon
The passage for today is particularly reassuring. It says that what we imagine will easily come to pass, will easily be created. The only proviso is that we must be careful of what our thoughts dwell upon. If we think of negative things, then negative things will come to us. If we think of positive, the positive will come. And we all know which is better.
5 – Ease
“. . .[T]he ease wtih which what you can imagine becomes reality.” What a blessing this is! May we watch our minds and hearts carefully today, to be sure that what we dwell upon is really what we want.
I do not fully understand the law of attraction, and I do realize that You protect us to a degree, in that there is a delay before negative things spiral down upon us. And we must be careful not to tie You to a formula. You are not, in my opinion, a genie in a bottle, bent on doing our bidding. Maybe our bidding would not be good for us, and then You will often say “no” to our requests. This is traditional religious thinking, and I see no reason to depart from it now.
Be with us as we consider the importance of what we consider our “idle thoughts.” Jesus says in A Course in Miracles that all thinking produces form at some level. And so we need to watch our minds carefully. There is really no such thing as an idle thought.
May today be good. May we give up the obsessions that sometimes threaten our peace of mind. And may we ask only what what would be good for us and others. May we not include selfish prayers that benefit no one, including ourselves. Let us acknowledge that there are mysteries here that we do not understand fully, and we need to tread softly.
