Earth – The Planet Of Doing And Accomplishing
“Our globe has been called Number Five, the planet of works, since everybody and everything must accomplish something or be nobody and nothing.” Those are the words of Emma Curtis Hopkins from her book High Mysticism.
Everybody seems to be working to accomplish something. Some are working for career success, and others are working to attain great wealth. Some are trying to achieve peace of mind, and others are struggling to attain spiritual enlightenment. As they work, they look around to see if there are any results from their labor. Daily they ask themselves: When is it going to happen? Why hasn’t it happened for me? What am I doing wrong?
A Better Way To Live
There is a better way to live. That way is best explained in an email sent to me by an enlightened friend. In it he wrote:
“Humans have a tendency to be preoccupied with outcomes whereas what really concerned Jesus or the Christ man was his status. Because Jesus understood his unchangeable status as the image of God he was never actually concerned about outcomes.”
Being All Is Better Than Achieving All
It seems absurd that merely shifting your focus from thoughts of getting and achieving to understanding your Identity can result in a fulfilling and successful life. Yet is it so farfetched? Imagine you are the owner of two cars: One has a full tank of gas, and the other is almost empty. Which car is going to get you to the next town without stopping? Discovering the truth of your Identity is like finding your once empty tank full of gas.
Once Christ Jesus discovered the Truth of his Identity, he always ran on full – fulfilled. So-called human beings, hurrying and scurrying to accomplish and achieve, are like near-empty tanks hunting for a gas pump.
When Jesus discovered the Truth of his Identity, he made another discovery: I have All because I AM All. From that day on Christ never concerned himself with results. Why should he? In the realization of his Identity, he achieved All.
Are You Willing To Try Something Different?
For years, perhaps, you’ve focused your attention on results. And if you tell the truth, there’s no respite from result-focused living. Reader, this is no way to live! Therefore, I’m asking you one question: Are you willing to try something different? If you are, try Jesus’ method – at least for thirty days.
Just for one month, focus your heart and mind on discovering the Truth of your Identity. Nothing you’ve read or heard counts. This discovery must be by inner Revelation.
The process is simple. Every prayer or meditation must have one purpose only – Self discovery. This means each prayer period will have a point of silent listening to hear the “Voice of Revelation.” Try it. If you have any questions, send me an email. One thing is for certain, it will be a great month of discovery.
