If I know what I want I can get what I know I want.
My choice in life is to be myself and have fun. This is not as easy as
it sounds on the surface. Being myself means I must know who I am and
understand my direction and purpose in life. Having fun is not a
diversion, it is being fulfilled to the depths of my physical, mental
and spiritual being. This is a fun game. It is a game I may learn to
My life is an illusion. I may as
well create an illusion that excites and amuses me.
I know my direction in
life. I am clear. Knowing myself I am myself and have fun when I am
clearly aware of what myself is and what fun is.
Walking my divine path
requires that I follow principle. It requires that I know who and what
I am. To stay on the path takes diligence, discipline, dedication and
determination. I utilize every technique I have available to me.
I Need A Technique
When I have trouble with
mathematics I cannot blame mathematics for my poor ability to learn. I
can only turn my attention to the technique of learning which
functions in the field of mathematics. What functions in this field is
the repetitive saying of obtuse statements such as: Two times two
equals four. The historical meaning behind this condition likely is
irrational and illogical. I do not have to know why the word two and
the word times and the word two and equals spell out four, an equation
I believe in the larger
world about me which now uses such an equation and I learn that
repetition of the concept makes it an acceptable information pack for
me. After a short time of saying the formula again and again I accept
this oblique fact that this concept functions whether it is true or
not is not in question. It works!
A student asked the other
day: If I do not know what I want how can I get what I do not know
that I want?
On the surface this appears
to be confusing, diametrically opposed within itself and yet it is a
logical syllogism out of deductive reasoning.
Since I may not know what I
want I do not know how to get what I do not know what I want.
Within me is an
intelligence far greater than I have ever expressed, much less
experienced. As I tap my inner genius I will know what it is that I
want and I will know how to achieve what I desire. This inner wisdom
is fully aware of my desires and choices and places them directly in
my experience for me to use and enjoy.
This inner wisdom is a
concept, just as mathematics is a concept. To enjoy the concept I
entertain it just the way I entertained mathematics using the
technique which functions to manifest its results. I use statements
such as two times two equals four. My desires are the same as a
mathematical concept. Though I may now know my desire or choice, I can
say: I know what I want and I know how to get it now.
I can also say: I live a
harmonious life. I am surrounded by harmonious beings. I am peace. I
am love. I am joy. I create all this about me with my thought about
them now. I know what makes me happy. I know what makes me fulfilled.
I know what my desires and choices are right now!
Whatever I concentrate my
attention upon comes up in my life.
As I concentrate my
attention on health, I live in a healthy body.
As I concentrate my
attention on abundance, I am rich beyond my fondest imagination.
As I concentrate my
attention on peace on Earth, peace abounds.
Just A Cottin’
Hold on there, I could
easily conclude, if I speak my word for these benefits in my life,
again and again, why do they not happen in my life right now too?
I speak my word for a
healthy body, but still I have little and big sicknesses.
I speak my word for
abundance, but still I hardly have enough to exist on.
I speak my word for peace,
and look at the papers, war seems to be everywhere.
Just as I did not learn
mathematics the first time I spoke my formula for its program, I had
to repeat it constantly and consistently. I had to speak it firmly
even though I made mistakes in my mathematics. I had to memorize the
details and put them into practice in a large variety of ways until at
last I experienced them working in an infinite number of ways.
For the fun of it, I would
work it foreword and backward, I would practice the mathematics in
remotely unreasonable ways to get it to do the impossible. Because I
followed the principle, because I remained true to the technique
through which it functioned, I was able to make mathematics sing and
dance for me in a wonderful ballet all of its own.
The mystery of mathematics
was solved and I was able to use it for its natural purpose.
Arequired reading book in the
University of Philosophy is FLATLAND, a universal romance of many
dimensions. Written by Edwin Abbott Abbott, a leading British educator,
headmaster of the City of London School, classicist, theologian and
Shakespearean scholar whose hobby was the study of higher mathematics.
The book exploits the power
of analogy between the limitations of humans and its two dimensional
characters. A unique guide through the concepts of relativity and
multiple dimensions of space populated by a hierarchical society of
regular geometrical figures acting all so human.
A description of many
dimensions with its nothingness and its allness: NO dimension the dot,
FIRST dimension the line, SECOND dimension the flatland, THIRD dimension
the spaceland or cube, and on. A most persuasive mathematical thesis
telling the story of beings living on a variety of dimensions from a
philosophical scientific impossibly correct viewpoint.
It has the reader venture
into the land of physics. The reader views existence from the vantage
point of a dot, no dimension, Pointland. A blind existence. All
existence has only the substance of a dot about itself.
Further is the first
dimension of the line or Lineland, and how it sees existence. Then comes
the square or Flatland, and circle. Later comes Spaceland with the cube
and ball or sphere.
How these "objects"
see their world is both fascinating and enlightening.
I had been for so long seeing
the allness of the universe from my limited perspective. As I condition,
train and educate myself to see from the variety of dimensions known in
the physical universe, the vastness of the unlimited universal concept’s
potentiality are revealed in their plethora of expressions. Living from
this center, my mind hurtles through the vast unknown, a thought
unknowable until it emerges from the denseness of human existence into
the fineness of infinite awareness.
And still my learning curve
continues to expand. Still I find new horizons dancing before my eyes
like sugar plum fairies seeking my attention.
I am open to all adventures.
I am open to the infinite variety of possibilities which I am. In my
openness I experience my reality however, just a small bit of it, for I
am ready now for all of it.

If I do not know what I want how can I get what I do not know that I
want—I open my eyes and look and listen within to the truth about me.
