New Habits vs Old Habits

“Everyday I learn a little more about love”. JD Loudermilk. Take the term “belief”. By the very nature of the definition of this word. . . (to accept and real or true) even after the belief has out-worn its welcome/becomes irrelevant, it may hang on unconsciously, held in collective consciousness for generations. “I believe” the fastest way to dis-spell a belief that no longer serves its host is to shine the light of consciousness on it. Let’s examine the commonly accepted belief that “old habits die hard.” How is it that so many of us accept this to be “fact” when, if held under the … Continue reading

The Truth Shall Bare You Out

My waking thought, “the truth shall bare you out”, rolled around in my noggin’ until I finally got up and wrote it down. I interpret this to say that TRUTH is the mother giving  rise to a new me. According to Wattles, the first principal in the science of getting rich is to “. . . think TRUTH, regardless of appearances.” This first principal comes at a price; “To think according to appearance is easy; to think truth regardless of appearance is laborious, and requires the expenditure of more power than an other work man is called upon to perform.” The labor of giving birth … Continue reading

I Can’t Complain . . .

How often we hear this statement, “I can’t complain. . .” as if it precludes that the person saying it is actually complaining but is pretending (to the person they are talking to at least) that they are not complaining. I find “complaining” to be a SORRY excuse for expressing myself, and I am training myself to shun its use in conversation. But how? THERE’S THE CATCH – I have friends that encourage, even bait me in the use of complaining under the guise of making conversation. And, I’m aware that I don’t need others to bait me into the act of complaining. I engage myself in the act with more regularity … Continue reading

I Am My Own Best Enemy

The old adage, “I am my own worst enemy” is an archaic way of not taking responsibility for what comes out of my mouth. So I have changed it to suit the new plain of thought that tends to encourage me to evaluate my words through a new lens, thanks to my study of the Science of Getting Rich.  An example of what I’m talking about came about just recently in a conversation with my daughter, Leslie. And, the adage, “I am my own best enemy” came into being.  Dear Leslie: I think about the words that come out of my mouth with a lot … Continue reading

Sitting On The Fence Can Give You A Wedgie

In Chapter 4 we are first introduced to the truth that thoughts held in formless substance produces the thing that is imaged by the thought. Walter D. Wattles admonishes the seeker (that’s me and you) to steer clear of ideas, teachings, books, media, and news that might shake my faith. Thought sounds like what I was admonished to do in Sunday School; “Avoid the very appearance of evil”. As the watcher of my thoughts I notice that I sit on the fence a lot. I second guess one thing or a series of things that I’m doing or thinking, and I hope I can hop the fence and try the other way of doing … Continue reading

Striking It Rich

By all appearances, panning for gold is a thankless job. For your efforts, and if you are damn lucky, you’ll have a tiny glass vile with gold dust in the bottom. However, show me the bearer of such a small vile filled with gold dust, and you will come to know someone with real faith. They always have a tall-tale to tell, and just like the fish story about the “big” one that got away, they tell their gold fever story with such vim and vigor, they’ll having you believing that a gold nugget is just around the next river bend. Yes, by appearance, a … Continue reading
