“Just because what you want most is not presently abundant, does not mean that abundance is not all around you in other forms. There are many cycles of change and growth in the universe. The surest way to attract abundance and to multiply that which you most desire is to first appreciate the nature of abundance, itself, and to be encouraged wherever you see it.
“In human experience, abundance is most closely related to feelings and expressions of affluence. Affluence is much more than being materially rich. Affluence is a sense of having more than enough. It is not measured by material wealth, but more truly by one’s attitude toward life. Affluence is a talent for giving and receiving. Like all talents, when perfected, it is rewarded. The opposite can also be true. There are many people who acquired possessions before having a healthy sense of affluence. To them, nothing is ever enough. Eventually, their friends, family, and associates (not to mention The Creator) will become weary with such attitudes of non-appreciation. Gradually, through unwise investments, debt, business failures, divorce, ill health, or a thousand other causes, their wealth will be transferred to others who have shown a greater talent for affluence.
“The surest sign of having attained the spirit of affluence is to consider—with sincere and immense gratitude—that you already have more than enough! When, with only a little, you can hold the spirit of affluence and be a good and benevolent steward of what you have, much more will be given to you.”
Quote from Keys of Jeshua:
“And charity is not just the giving away of worldly goods. Charity is a generous heart, a grateful spirit, a forgiving soul, a courageous life, an expansive vision, an exploratory mind, caring hands, persistent dedication, and creative ideas. Charity is a visible sign of spiritual wealth. As you express your spiritual wealth, material abundance will follow.
“Spiritual wealth has other recognizable qualities. For one, gratitude is the feeling of wealth. The inner way of wealth is to be in such harmony with your true being and with God that you do not waste vital energy looking for greener pastures, but cultivate and multiply that which you have been given. The attitude of wealth is humility! Even with meager material possessions, you can experience great abundance and wealth. When you can see the abundance of infinite supply as greater than you are, there is no end to your wealth. When you can know this with all your heart, then materialpossessions—however great or small—will serve your life and bring no sense of lack. The action of wealth is creative ingenuity.
“Resentment, self-pity, fear, blame, hoarding, and wishing yourself to be what you are not—these are the greatest obstacles to living abundantly. Even the very wealthy are often guilty of these things and take no joy in their prosperity. Many who live modestly have none of these qualities and enjoy their meager bounty as a king in a palace.”
This Months Story:
Too often we associate wealth with our possessions or at least with the ability to establish financial security and to purchase the experiences we want. What we fail to realize is that such states of wealth are only physical manifestations of more important attainments. Such attainments would include having friends and family who enrich our lives; having health, laughter, values that honor the daily blessings of life; having sensitivity, creativity, hope, optimism, productivity, and the ability to be selectivelyin the presence of that which we hold most dear. How do we obtain these higher standards and rewards of wealth. I believe, as Jeshua taught, that it begins with how we create and manage our consciousness. Is the temple of your consciousness full of sun light, and furnished with meaningful, supportive, and honorable experiences? Are the gardens of your temple filled with singing birds and flowers, or are they filled with weeds and thistles leaving no clear paths on which to travel or soft beds of grass on which to rest. Whether you wish to admit it or not, you are the creator and master of your consciousness! That is your first and major creation, and from that all the varieties of your life experience emerge.
There is possibly nothing we need to be more vigilant about than the creation and management of our consciousness…that which furnishes our heart and mind with the power of reality.
"Wait a moment," Socrates replied. "Before you tell me I'd like you to pass a little test. It's called the "Triple Filter Test".
"That's right," Socrates continued. "Before you talk to me about my student let's take a moment to filter what you're going to say. The first Filter is Truth. Have you made absolutely sure that what you are about to tell me is true?"
"No," the man said, "actually I just heard about it and..."
"All right," said Socrates. "So you don't really know if it's true or not. Now let's try the second filter, the Filter of Goodness. Is what you are about to tell me about my student is something good?"
"No, on the contrary..."
"So," Socrates continued, "you want to tell me something bad about him, even though you're not certain it's true?" The man shrugged, a little embarrassed. Socrates continued. "You may still pass the test though, because there is a third filter - the Filter of Usefulness. Is what you want to tell me about my student going to be useful to me?"
"No, not really..."
"Well," concluded Socrates, "if what you want to tell me is neither True, nor Good, nor even Useful, why tell it to me at all?" The man was defeated and ashamed.
If we would apply these filters to our consciousness, every day with every experience and conversation, we would soon have consciousness capable of producing great abundance instead of grief and remorse.
Two wonderful radio interviews with Patty Kovacs, the latest being October 27th, answered many questions that our readers have asked. We encourage you to listen by using this link: http://www.wsradio.com/healthandbeautyrevolution/september2004.htm
This will take you to the listening archives of WS Radio. Then just scroll down to 9.27.04. There are two interviews on The Keys of Jeshua. C lick and listen.
For those of you who do not have time for an hour interview, I want to address a frequently asked question. What is the difference between prayer and meditation?
Many of you who are regular meditators are now desiring to pray more often, and others who have relied on daily prayer are wanting to also meditate. It seems that most people are beginning to realize there is a profound symbiosis between these two expressions of reverence. In order to support this growth, we made the “Prayers and Meditations” CD available from The Keys of Jeshua.
Prayers are the sincere expressions we make to our Creator about our deepest feelings, hopes, dreams, needs, and even fears. It can also be an expression of praise and gratitude, or a plea for help and guidance. Through prayer we can seek forgiveness for ourselves or another, and even pray for the well-being of another. Prayer need not be in words. It can be in song, or creative expression. Whatever the means, through prayer we are actively creating our relationship with God.
In meditation, we are listening for answers. By disciplining our minds to be still, and allowing our hearts to open, we embrace the greater possibilities for life. We become more unconditional, more tolerant, more receptive, and more open to the Creator’s greater vision of how a prayer may best be answered and our life best be served. Limiting expectations provide a common obstacle to seeing our prayers answered and our lives fulfilled. Meditation is the solvent to boundaries of the heart, mind, and soul.
Announcing: A new giclee edition of “The Lamb and The Lion,” 24" x 24"
Many of you have already seen the exquisite beauty of “The Lamb and The Lion” Giclees. A quality giclee (and ours are the best) is the closest reproduction to an original oil on canvas that is technically possible. It captures all the subtlety, nuance, and richness of brush strokes, highlights, and shading as no other medium of reproduction can. Most people cannot distinguish between a giclee and the original painting. Because of that, the power of an original work of art is captured as well. I was thrilled that the giclee medium emerged into its perfected form about the time “The Lamb and The Lion” was finished. What a touch of God! So, I immediately established two sizes of giclee for that painting in limited edition quantity. They are each individually, and painstakingly, crafted so it is necessary that the sizes available and number be limited. I chose to reproduce it in its actual size (48” x 48”) and also in a smaller size that was more suitable for homes, yet large enough to carry the presence of its large prototype.
However, through the years, the most requested item was to make a “Lamb and Lion” giclee in an even smaller size that would be more affordable. People wanted it be larger than the print, but easier to display in the average home than the existing giclee editions.
AT LAST, we have sold out enough of our earlier editions that I can listen to your requests and supply your desire. Just in time for Christmas 2004, we have opened an edition of “The Lamb and The Lion” giclees in the unframed size of 24” x 24”. They will retail for only $450 unframed, and $595 framed. They are beautifully framed in a champagne gold frame (four inches wide) that is rich enough for traditional interiors, yet tailored and clean enough for the most modern styles. We will be glad to send you a picture of the frame on request. Each one, of course, is signed and numbered with a certificate of authenticity.
Now the bad news is, there will only be 1000 EVER in this edition… for the whole world (and this is the only size that would sensibly ship abroad). After 12 years of accumulated demand and hundreds of thousands of people that admire the painting, this edition will not last long. Those of you who are blessed to have one will want to share it.
We wanted to let you, our most devoted supporters know first. Official announcements will be going out later this week. There is possibly no more special Christmas present you could give yourself or anyone you love. Its message is one of pure love, peace, and inner strength so needed in our world and in our hearts today. This is the present you will LOVE forever.
