40 Day Prosperity Plan Day 14: Through my consciousness of my God-Self, the Christ within, as my Source, I draw into my mind and feeling nature the very substance of Spirit. This substance is my supply, thus my consciousness of the Presence of God within me is my supply.
This coincides so perfectly with Practicing the Power of Now. Tolle says that your inner body is your portal to the Now--to the infinite, the unknown, source. My consciousness of my inner body is the same as my consciousness of the Presence of God within me.
I am learning to be one with life, and trust the flow. Another beautiful Tolle idea: "You can always cope with the Now, but you can never cope with the future--nor do you have to. The answer, the strength, the right action, or the resource will be there when you need it, not before, not after."
Learning to have faith/belief/knowing in that idea is literally hard to swallow--I'm sitting here choking on my own spit as I try to type. It contrasts so starkly with my parents' version of security, which comes with a dollar sign.
I am so grateful to be learning the only true kind of security, the security of being one with life.
The more I stay in touch with my inner body (my consciousness of the Presence of God), the more wonderful manifestations occur. We sold a book to our friend's parents, which was shocking and so flattering. A friend at brunch complimented my "mindfulness posts" which blew me away--I had no idea she read my site! And then we had a visit from a long lost friend Lucy which was SUCH a major manifestation. Oh and Kelly got a haircut from a friend for free, and I got an amazing massage. It's almost as if everything is working out for us!
I see that true prosperity has nothing to do with money, but only being aware of the "fullness of life" as Tolle calls it. I feel prosperous when I get to be with my friends. I feel prosperous when we have money to go to a birthday brunch. I feel prosperous when my friend's parents support my work! I feel prosperous when my dad calls me to tell me he can fix a piece of furniture I have that broke! I feel prosperous when my dad talks so sweetly about his pet cat! (His compassion for felines is a recent development--as a child the saying always went, "The only good cat is a dead cat!")
I feel prosperous when it's 70º in February and I get to bike clear through Austin, effortlessly. I feel prosperous when there are bike lanes and light traffic. I feel prosperous when we go to the grocery store and spend $9 on vegetables. I feel prosperous when it's easy to bike 14 miles. I feel prosperous when I get to visit my old neighborhood.
I feel prosperous when I get surprise texts from friends at 9am and I'm actually awake and dressed. I feel prosperous when I have plans I'm looking forward to. I feel prosperous when I crush on friends I've had for years. I feel prosperous when people ask us for website advice.
I feel prosperous when my favorite song comes on Pandora. I feel prosperous when I don't need money to feel prosperous!
I feel prosperous when my wife falls asleep in my arms. I feel prosperous when my kitties are so happy we're home. I feel prosperous when Kelly takes care of our plant Cecil!
