We are bracing for 2013 and there could be no better way to welcome the New Year than to have a grateful heart. We are alive and provided with everything we need.
We have reviewed our checklist and sure we fell short of meeting some of our targets, but what is important is that we presented our plans to the Divine who governs this universe; and we sought for the blessing. There are blessings delayed, but definitely not denied; and perhaps there are blessings that are even better in the year ahead. I am open for surprises so let not my heart be dismayed.
Neale Donald Walsh, an unmet friend, has been faithful in dropping inspirational messages into my inbox. So let me share what he sent me while I was sound asleep. He is endorsing another life coach and author of inspirational books, Marriane Williamson. Here’s her latest book:
An excerpt from the Law of Divine Compensation:
“As an expression of divine perfection, the universe is both self-organizing and self-correcting. To whatever extent your mind is aligned with love, you will receive divine compensation for any lack in your material existence.
From spiritual substance will come material manifestation. This is not just a theory; it is a fact. It is a law by which the universe operates. I call it the Law of Divine Compensation.
Just as there are objective, discernible laws of external phenomena, so there are objective, discernible laws of internal phenomena. The law of gravity, for instance, is not just a ‘belief.’ It is true whether or not you believe it. Spiritual laws are not just beliefs, either; they are descriptions of how consciousness operates.
Once we know this law — that there is a natural tendency of the universe to improve all things — then we lean naturally into the arms of God and allow Him to lift us up. We surrender our thoughts, then He uplifts our thoughts, then our experiences change.
The practical issue is whether we choose thoughts that activate or deactivate the Law of Divine Compensation. We activate it with every loving thought. We deactivate it when we give more credence to the reality and power of the material world than to the reality and power of love.
If our circumstances tempt us to think thoughts such as, ‘I must not be good enough,’ ‘I will never have another chance,’ ‘It will take forever for this to right itself,’ or ‘I hate whoever is to blame for this,’ then miracles, though they are programmed into the nature of the universe, cannot make their way into our awareness.
With every thought we think, we either summon or block a miracle. It is not our circumstances, then, but rather our thoughts about our circumstances, that determine our power to transform them.
The Law of Divine Compensation applies equally to all situations, but in this book we will focus on its application to money and the lack thereof.
In a time of economic uncertainty — when circumstances make it particularly tempting to believe in the scarcity of the material plane over the abundance of the spiritual — our capacity to think differently is the miracle-worker’s edge.
Bills stare you in the face. Foreclosure looms. Credit is wrecked. Jobs aren’t available. And with all that comes chaos on many fronts. Who doesn’t need a miracle then?”
