AWARENESS IN CONGRUENCE 4

P. 11-16
Just to repeat this profound principle: 
“you have to become very aware of the aspect of the self that you are choosing to create from.”
In the past when we spoke of manifestation, transformation or creating, if it didn’t work, then we were told we weren’t trying hard enough or that we were doing it wrong. 
Above we have a key element—we create from the mind set that we are standing in right now. 
The question becomes how do I change my mind? If I am used to living in scarcity, lack or victimhood, how do I turn that around? 
The simplest answer is that I become aware that I choose the thoughts I hold onto. As soon as I become aware that I am holding onto and “feeding” negative ideas, I move a better idea, thought, or affirmation in its place.
I am often reminded of an an essential piece of Unity belief and history. Myrtle Filmore was diagnosed with TB and literally given a death sentence. Through a number of influences she created the affirmation, “I am a Divine child of God; I do n…

AWARENESS IN CONGRUENCE 3

p. 9-12 (for those of you who were in class, I need to apologize for being so “mouthy” during this session. I have to say though that I found today’s material very moving and exciting).
The guides are using the metaphor of a billboard to demonstrate some our creative power. I began thinking along those lines and believe it can be divided into three planes of understanding.
Stage 1-Here we are pretty unconscious and we look at the billboard and immediately want to get ahold of whatever it is being put before us. Sometimes a thing or an idea that we never knew existed a moment ago becomes a want or a need. We have no realization of what we have created here or our power of choice.
Stage 2—We are consciously aware, and we discover that even though we might have a knee jerk reaction to what is on the billboard, we realize we have no interest in it at all, and we just reject it outright.
Stage 3-We still have no interest in the item, but we understand how some might be attracted to it, and we …

AWARENESS IN CONGRUENCE 2

p. 5-9
Sometimes words fly out of my mouth , and I have to take some time to listen to them myself.
In class I said something to the effect: “There are times we create situations to prove to ourselves they are NOT true.” I hope that is not too confusing.  There are times when we are dealing with both personal and collective thoughts and situations. It seems pretty obvious that we have created a collective mindset of scarcity and unworthiness which also affects many of us as individuals.  Now if we take that and line it up with the Truth that we are affirming, “I am Word; I am the creative power of God; there is nothing in which I am lacking,” we can see there is “something wrong with this picture." 
Most of us have been taught and have experienced that sense of scarcity and unworthiness. To erase the false teaching and experience they must be replaced by another teaching and experience.  What this book is getting at is that we are changing our level of vibration from lower to higher an…
DAY TWO: AWARENESS IN CONGRUENCE WITH THE DIVINE SELF (quotes from the book are in bold print) p. 4-7 Towards the end of the Prologue I was reminded of an image/metaphor created by the Russian mystic Gurdjieff.  
This a paraphrase: “Imagine a coach with a driver and six very strong horses. The coach has been traveling here and there for many years. Without warning an arm holding a cane reaches out the coach’s window and taps the driver on the leg and a voice from within says, “Turn left.”  “Who are you?”, the driver asks, “I own this coach; I just woke up; now turn left.” 
The coach is you/your physical existence; the driver is your ego consciousness; the horses your thoughts and emotions; and the owner of the coach is your inner awareness/spiritual consciousness. 
The scene is now set, and the driver (your ego) is not going to relinquish control that quickly. What we are hinting at here, however, is that coming into your spiritual awareness and begin guided by it does not have to be a battl…

PROLOGUE DAY ONE

“This next book is a big one. It’s a treatise, again, but it’s a different kind of treatise. And it’s about walking in the light, and how to stand in the light, and how to become yourself in congruence with the Divine Self that you are through your relationships, through your actions, and through your requirements of your knowing, and what is given to you through spirit through your consciousness as you walk forward.”
And most of us are probably asking the same question as Paul, “How is this going to be different from the first book?” I Am the Word, put down the foundation and got you used to this new language of manifestation. It is not so much about creating things on the outside as it is realizing the creative power within you as the continuing manifestation of Love. Book One is about claiming you power(and working through those distractions at can get in the way), while the second book is putting that power to practice. 
“But Book Two has its own mission, which is the jurisdiction of …
