LET GO AND LET GOD

How many times have you been faced with what appeared to be an insurmountable problem and you silently wished you could “turn it over” to somebody else for a solution. Or have you ever sat daydreaming—building magnificent images on the screen of your mind—wishing you had a certain sum of money, wanting to take a trip to some interesting place, or possibly hoping to be able to purchase the automobile you have always wanted? Would it not be fantastic if there was some “magic formula” that would give us the things we want and permit us to live the way we choose? Bob Proctor believes there is, and that it has been around since time began.

POTENTIAL IS EVERYWHERE ALWAYS

Understand this—everything you see in this universe, yourself included, is nothing but the expression of an infinite power. This power is forever flowing into and through you. Scientists will tell you that everything is energy. But Proctor thinks that everything is Spirit.

For centuries, there has been a select group of people who are the real thinkers. These individuals have always known there is a power that permeates, penetrates and fills the interspaces of the cosmos, and that everything you see around you is an expression of that power. The power operates in a very precise manner, which is generally called“law.”

In other words, everything comes from one source, and that source power always flows and works to and through the individual—that is you. Stated slightly differently, the image that you have formedcan only come to you on the physical plane of life(your results) in one way, and that way is “By Lawand through Faith.”

A particular religion has a scripture in its“Doctrine and Covenants” which demonstrates this point extremely well: “There is a law; irrevocably decreed in heaven before the foundations of this world upon which all blessings are predicated. And when we obtain any blessing from God, it is by obedience to that law upon which it is predicated.”

“The more you study this scripture, the more you will appreciate just how perfect it is. The more you understand its truth, the easier it will be for you to improve the quality of your life.”

KEEPING FAITH

ClarenceSmithison incorporates, within his very being, this principle that if a person will let go and let God (i.e. have faith that whatever must happen for him to achieve his goal, will indeed occur), all things become possible. He says his is not a complicated philosophy of life. He reiterates that everything he believes about Faith could be summarised in a simple definition; and it was this definition, which gave him the strength he needed to endure the trials and tribulations in his own life.

“Faith,” he says, “is the ability to see the invisible and believe in the incredible and that is what enables believers to receive what the masses think is impossible.”

Using a slightly different vocabulary, Bob Proctor would make the observation: “If you can show me a person who achieves great things, I can show you a person who has great faith in his God-given ability to achieve what he images.” In fact, there is absolutely no question in his mind that faith has always been the miracle worker throughout history. It is the connecting link between God and You, and therefore, it is your most valuable nonphysical possession. “In truth, it is the cornerstone to everything you will ever build or achieve during the course of your entire lifetime.”

Comparatively few people today realize just how much faith in oneself (that part of oneself which is spiritual, perfect) has to do with achievement, because the great majority of people never seem to conceive of faith as being a genuine creative force.

Yet the truth is that not only is Faith a bonafide power, but it is the greatest one we will ever encounter. In fact, Proctor would go so far as to say that whatever you accomplish in your lifetime, will be in direct proportion to the:1) intensity, and2) persistence of your faith.

By accepting the principle “Let Go And LetGod”, and believing that whatever must happen for you to reach your goal, will happen—like David—you too will successfully conquer the “giant” in your life (i.e. you will witness the physical manifestation of your image, and in the proper time). You see, the trouble with those of us who fail to achieve what we desire, is not that we lack the ability to do so, but that we lack the faith implicit in the “Let GoAnd Let God” principle, which dictates whatever is necessary for us to reach our goal will indeed occur.

We do not believe we can simply tap into the great spiritual reservoir that lies within us, to make connection with divinity, all-supply, or whatever else you wish to call that power that sustains each one of us. However, if you fail to make this connection in your own mind, or if you lack the divine self-confidence born of faith in omnipotence, you will never be what you long to be, or have what you rightly deserve to have. “All of your prayers will return to you unanswered; your best efforts will bear no fruit and your negative attitudes will thwart the realization of your goal.”

A mind “saturated” with fear of failure or images of unwanted results can not accomplish, create,or produce anything of value. You must realize the creator does not alter the law of gravity to accommodate a person who walks off the roof of a house. (Even though the person may do it unconsciously or in a drugged state.) Similarly, the creative principle of the law of achievement can not be violated with impunity. Therefore, you will achieve what you desire, be what you long to be, only when you become obedient to that inexorable law of life.

The first step in the creative process is to relax and see yourself already in possession of the good that you desire. (Build the image.) The second step is to—Let Go And Let God.

In working with Spirit, it helps to focus on the truth that Spirit is in all places at all times. Since this is so, it follows that you possess the godlike ability to tap into positive thoughts anytime you wish and anywhere you choose. Moreover, once you become aware of your kinship with the creative power, that you are in truth a child of spirit, you can not possibly be anything other than positive, forceful, radiant and self-reliant in your dealings with the world.

Once this happens, all the forces in the universe will come together to help you reach your goal or the manifestation of your Image. Finally, gaining the understanding that you are made in the image of the creator of the universe—and are a living part of eternal spirit—will ultimately transform the results that you are achieving in your life, every day.

Although Spirit is the very essence of your being, it will never move into form or into an image, without your assistance. Therefore, those people who sit back and do nothing, saying, “God will look after me,” are just kidding themselves. For since it is true that God helps only those who first help themselves,it follows that you must always do your part to start the creative process in motion.

For as long as you continue to hold the image in your mind of the good you desire, you will always be rewarded. Just have faith that what should happen must happen, and in the right time, it will happen. Always remember that the image, which you keep affirming in your heart or your subconscious mind is being impressed upon spirit, and Spirit, has the ability to convert your present dreams into your future reality.
