If I Am Having This Experience, What Must I Have Believed to Be True about Myself and about the World?

“Learn always to inquire, not out into the world, but into yourself:

“If I am having this experience, what must I have believed to be true about myself and about the world?

“The truth will come through prayer and through honesty.  When you discover it, you will know it.  Then use the sovereign power of free choice given unto you, which is the Truth of the Kingdom, to choose otherwise.”  “The Way of Knowing, “ in The Way of Mastery

Jesus says elsewhere in “The Way of Knowing” that unconditional love cannot bring about karma.  But when we have let the negative intrude, in conditional love, then karma comes into play.  Cause and effect.  A boomerang.

Negativity may be the bad guy in all of our lives.  We develop depression from our negativity, and none of us want that.  If we have negative thoughts constantly, then the negative will infuse our lives.  If we have a bad experience, then somewhere, somehow, the negative has overtaken us.  Let us make a new choice, free as the wind, loving to the extreme—and the negativity will leave us.

It is just that simple, and just that complex.  We don’t see how we can eliminate negativity, because it has so much been a part of our lives.  Lift our feelings higher; ask for help.  The Holy Spirit will respond.  And we will be free of unwanted feelings, just like that.

Our new choice has saved us.

  1. “Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things.” Philippians 4:8 That is our mandate! I love how you capture the continuity between Spirituality and Jesus’ teachings. Hugs to you!
