“What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them.” ( Mark 11:24) We are first to believe that our desire has has already been fulfilled, its accomplishment will then follow. This is a concise direction for making use of the creative power of thought by impressing on the Universal subjective mind, the particular thing which we desire as an already existing fact.
Somewhere I have a saying from positive intelligence.com:
“Your vision of who you want to be is your greatest asset.”
Too bad this is not taught in school or as a parent I did not know. However, my grandchildren know it.
