What you sow you reap!

Written by Carl Cholette

Go intorepparttar fields and country lanes inrepparttar 150052 spring-time, and you will see farmers and gardeners busy sowing seeds in repparttar 150053 newly prepared soil. If you were to ask any one of those gardeners or farmers what kind of produce he expected from repparttar 150054 seed he was sowing, he would doubtless regard you as foolish, and would tell you that he does not "expect" at all, that it is a matter of common knowledge that his produce will be ofrepparttar 150055 kind which he is sowing, and that he is sowing wheat, or barley, or turnips, asrepparttar 150056 case may be, in order to reproduce that particular kind.

Every fact and process in Nature contains a moral lesson for repparttar 150057 wise man. There is no law inrepparttar 150058 world of Nature around us which is not to be found operating withrepparttar 150059 same mathematical certainty inrepparttar 150060 mind of man and in human life. Allrepparttar 150061 parables of Jesus are illustrative of this truth, and are drawn fromrepparttar 150062 simple facts of Nature. There is a process of seed-sowing inrepparttar 150063 mind and life a spiritual sowing which leads to a harvest according torepparttar 150064 kind of seed sown. Thoughts, words, and acts are seeds sown, and, byrepparttar 150065 inviolable law of things, they produce after their kind. The man who thinks hateful thoughts brings hatred upon himself. The man who thinks loving thoughts is loved. The man whose thoughts, words and acts are sincere, is surrounded by sincere friends;repparttar 150066 insincere man is surrounded by insincere friends. The man who sows wrong thoughts and deeds, and prays that God will bless him, is inrepparttar 150067 position of a farmer who, having sown tares, asks God to bring forth for him a harvest of wheat.

"That which ye sow, ye reap; see yonder fields, The sesamum was sesamum,repparttar 150068 corn Was corn;repparttar 150069 silence andrepparttar 150070 darkness knew; So is a man's fate born."

"He cometh reaper ofrepparttar 150071 things he sowed." He who would be blest, let him scatter blessings. He who would be happy, let him considerrepparttar 150072 happiness of others.

Then there is another side to this seed sowing. The farmer must scatter all his seed uponrepparttar 150073 land, and then leave it torepparttar 150074 elements. Were he to covetously hoard his seed, he would lose both it and his produce, for his seed would perish. It perishes when he sows it, but in perishing it brings forth a great abundance. So in life, we get by giving; we grow rich by scattering. The man who says he is in possession of knowledge which he cannot give out becauserepparttar 150075 world is incapable of receiving it, either does not possess such knowledge, or, if he does, will soon be deprived of it - if he is not already so deprived. To hoard is to lose; to exclusively retain is to be dispossessed.

The power of desire! - part 2

Written by Carl Cholette

Let's continue where we left off in Part 1...

We have stated that it was inrepparttar power of man to Create Desire ; not only to be its master when created, but also to actually Create it by bringing it into being. Andrepparttar 149943 statement is absolutely true, and is verified and proven by repparttar 149944 most recent experiments and discoveries of modern psychology. Instead of man being a creature of Desire and this indeed he is in many cases, he may become Master of Desire and even a Creator of it. By knowledge and Will he may reverserepparttar 149945 ordinary order of things and, displacing repparttar 149946 intruder fromrepparttar 149947 throne, he may seat himself there in his rightful place, and then bidrepparttar 149948 late occupant do his will and obey his bidding. Butrepparttar 149949 best way forrepparttar 149950 new occupant ofrepparttar 149951 throne to bring about a reorganized court is to dismissrepparttar 149952 old objectionable creatures of his mind and create new ones in their places. And here is how it may be done: Inrepparttar 149953 first place, one must think carefully over repparttar 149954 tasks that he wishes to accomplish, then, using his judgment carefully, judicially and impartially,impersonally so far as is possible – he must take mental stock of himself and see in what points he is deficient, so far as repparttar 149955 successful accomplishment ofrepparttar 149956 task is concerned. Then let him analyzerepparttar 149957 task before him, in detail, separatingrepparttar 149958 matter into as many clear defined divisions as possible, so that he may be able to seerepparttar 149959 Thing as It Is, in detail as well as in its entirety. Then let him take a similar inventory ofrepparttar 149960 things, which seem necessary ofrepparttar 149961 accomplishment ofrepparttar 149962 task, notrepparttar 149963 details that will arise only asrepparttar 149964 work progresses, day by day, but repparttar 149965 general things, which must be done in order thatrepparttar 149966 task is brought to a successful conclusion. Then having taken stock ofrepparttar 149967 task,repparttar 149968 nature ofrepparttar 149969 undertaking, and one’s own qualifications and shortcomings – then Begin to Create Desire, according torepparttar 149970 following plan: The first step inrepparttar 149971 Creation of Desire is that ofrepparttar 149972 forming of a clear, vital Mental Image ofrepparttar 149973 qualities, things and details ofrepparttar 149974 undertaking, as well as ofrepparttar 149975 Completed Whole. By a Mental Image we mean a clear-cut, distinct mental picture inrepparttar 149976 Imagination ofrepparttar 149977 things just names. Now, do not turn away with an impatient motion atrepparttar 149978 mention ofrepparttar 149979 word Imagination. That is another word that you have only a mistaken idea of. Imagination means far more thanrepparttar 149980 mere idle, fanciful use of that part ofrepparttar 149981 mind that is believed by people to be "all there is to it.

"It isn’t all, by a long way. In fact,repparttar 149982 fanciful part may be said to be merely a shadow ofrepparttar 149983 real Imaginative effort. Imagination is a real thing, it is a faculty ofrepparttar 149984 mind by which it creates a matrix, mold, or pattern of things, whichrepparttar 149985 trained Will and Desire afterward, materializes into objective reality. There has been nothing created byrepparttar 149986 hands and mind of man which did not have its first origin inrepparttar 149987 Imagination of some one. Imagination is repparttar 149988 first step in Creation, whether of worlds or trifles. The mental pattern must always precederepparttar 149989 material form. And so it is inrepparttar 149990 Creation of Desire. Before you can Create a Desire you must have a clear Mental Image of what you need to Desire.
