“Resolve that you will live and think and work as if you really believed that the whole Universe of creativity and substance were present in every project of your work and every transaction of your investments, as your never-failing resource.” Eric Butterworth
We’ve all been there. Struggling, agonizing, stressing and straining, trying to get the results we want and need.
When that doesn’t work, we decide to change things— we reorganize, restructure, reshuffle, recreate, rebuild, and replace. This is called rearranging the deck chairs on the Titanic. The ship is going down, but we are too busy to notice while we are rearranging the outside appearances.
Oftentimes, we try to shift everything on the external plane and often forget the power of prayer, the power of our connection with the divine. It is an inside job. Remembering our oneness with the Infinite comes first. In “The Law of Divine Compensation,” Marianne Williamson writes, “It is almost amusing when doctors say, “We’ve done everything possible. All we can do now is pray, as though God was simply our last resort, the one we go to when all the really powerful things have failed.”
It can be so easy to be attached to the results in the outside world. However, our true power lies within, where we make a connection to the Divine.
Marianne goes on to say, “You are not asking that a force outside of you magically change external circumstances; you are asking that a Divine Guide within you change the nature of your thoughts.” The power lies within. Knowing our Oneness with the Infinite Invisible has far greater potential and power than anything we can reason with in the external world.
