The Courage To Create


Visitors: 499

We know blocks can prevent us from demonstrating our good. A few of them might kick up some issues about having the courage to have our desires. New things, new experiences, new ways of thinking can be scary. Nothing is required of us if we stick to the status quo. Nothing is required of us if we just go along and let our race thoughts create our lives. Nothing is required of us if we don't consciously change and consciously create. But is that really what you want your life to be about?

Do you have the Courage to Create?

To refresh everyone's memory about the blocks that may come up when one is treating for a desire, recall the questions that Rev. Donald Ringness came up with to identify possible blocks.

Here are the questions:

1. Am I willing to risk?

2. Am I willing to make whatever changes are necessary in my life for this demonstration to occur?

3. Am I willing to take final responsibility for what will happen when this demonstrates?

4. Can I afford it?

5. Do I deserve it?

6. Do I want it now?

We will discuss the first three, as they involve Courage.

1. Are you willing to risk? Demonstration involves change. Are you willing to risk having changes in your life? Are you willing to risk changes in your relationships, where you live, what your job is, etc. ?

2. Are you willing to make necessary changes? When the Law begins its work, you will be compelled or inspired to do different things. (The Law is working on you too, you know!) If you want the demonstration of your ideal weight, are you willing to stop having second portions? Are you willing to go to the gym instead of having a few beers with friends?

3. Are you willing to be responsible for your demonstration? Are you willing to be a responsible car owner? A responsible home owner? A responsible pet owner? Are you clear that the Law will also give you the ways and means to handle these responsibilities?

Courage is defined as: the quality of mind that enables a person to face challenges without fear.

So in regard to Question 1: Risk usually involves some feelings of trepidation. If it didn't, we probably would not consider the situation or move risky. To create something new in your life requires change. Many people like to feel safe. Many people feel most safe when they are surrounded by the familiar. But what is change? Change is moving into the unfamiliar. What is courage in this situation? Courage is moving into the unfamiliar with “the quality of mind" that this change is safe and good and Divinely guided. To create what you want in your life means creating something new and different, something unfamiliar. To create with courage means to state your desires, believe you have them, and know, at your deepest level, that this desire will create change in you and your life and you can welcome it with open arms because that change is the best thing for you - that change is for your highest good.

Risk is one thing. It is making the decision to take a new step, to move in a new direction. But then actually following through and taking that new step, is quite another. That is what Question 2 is all about. Do you have the courage - that quality of mind - to ACT on your decision. Yes, you would like to drop 10 pounds. Yes, you are willing to risk how losing 10 pounds would change things (like buying new clothes, perhaps?! - I'll willing to risk that!). But what are you actually going to do about it? Are you willing to set aside time every day to exercise? Are you willing to stop eating ice cream every night? Do you have the courage to set a goal and work toward it? Do you have the courage to make a plan which includes doing a treatment every day? Do you have the courage to let the Law work on you?

And Question 3: probably the one question who's answer requires the most courage. Am I willing to be responsible? Do I have the courage to be responsible for what I create - good, bad, or indifferent? Because whether you realize it or not, you are always creating. But most of it is subconscious. Do you have the courage to create consciously?

People often say they want things to be different, but then do nothing about it. They wait for Life (which in this case is their subconscious and race thought) to make the changes. Then, if it's not the change they wanted, they can bemoan that fact, stay “un-responsible" for it and play the blame game. They don't have to be responsible for anything because they didn't do it. Something or somebody else did.

Creating consciously means taking responsibility for what happens in your life. It means growing up and being the adult for your inner child. It doesn't involve blame or guilt or feeling bad about yourself. Being responsible should actually make you feel empowered. If you are not the one responsible for your creating, then you are at the whim of something outside yourself. It would mean you have no control, or less control or little control. But if you are the one responsible, then you are also the one with the power. And using power correctly take courage.

So embrace your courage to create. God will back you up!
