The nature of the world is challenging. The Buddhist’s say it is pain and suffering… and it is, but it is also balanced by the positive polarities of Joy, Love, Beauty, FUN! As Divine Creative Beings our experience of the world is strongly influenced by the attitudes we hold and the thoughts we think and the emotions we feel. Emmet Fox, a minister of Divine Science, wrote the book POWER THRU CONSTUCTIVE THINKING. Both Al Manning and myself respect Emmet’s work. Rev. Fox’s point is that rather than hold on and keep focusing on the negative things in your life, change the mental channel to focusing on spiritual upliftment. As eclectics we review all spiritual literature.
And whether you are Jewish, Christian, Pagan or agnostic, you can still benefit by turning to what Emmet Fox called “a spiritual vortex,” the Bible. So to Golden Key a situation, you TURN TO THE LIGHT. And that means considering your situation and then turn your attention to the LIGHT by whatever means works for you. Just find something inspirational that connects to your personal views and focus on it, until you feel a positive resolution. Then when the negative thoughts and emotions come up, change the channel to your spiritual connection. Here is a Spiritual Science version of the 23rd Psalm:
The LIGHT (my personal connection to the divine) is my SOURCE; I shall not want.
IT makes me lie down in green pastures,
Leads me beside still waters; restores my soul.
IT leads me in paths of righteousness (RIGHT ACTION GOOD KARMA)
for Goodness sake!
Though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,
I will fear no evil, for THE LIGHT is with me;
Your Guidance– comforts me.
You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies;
you anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows.
Surely[ goodness and mercy with Divine LOVE shall follow me
all the days of my life, and I shall dwell in the house of the Lord (Divine Presence) forever.
