Have you ever experienced a time in your life that felt like the roof fell in? Did everything seem to change for the worse almost overnight?
We are great believers in luck or fortune; we hear it every day. “I had a run of bad luck, I experienced a reversal of fortune, I just can’t catch a break”. Is my destiny out there somewhere beyond my control? Does the Goddess Fortuna really spin her wheel; are you a helpless pawn of Fortune?
No, my friends. That is the song of the lost and helpless and it brings nothing but sorrow, decay and waste. Yes, life does seem to take turns for the worse one day and then look rosy the next. Why?
Life is merely a mirror of our Mind. What we think, speak and decide to do each day is the cause of our life experience. As our thinking, our moods, our impulses and our actions ebb and flow from day to day they are planting the seeds of our future in the soil of our subconscious or subjective minds. Our conscious thought programs the subconscious mind. Thus our reality is created.
When the roof falls in on your life you can always trace the cause to something that you did or neglected to do, perhaps years before, that has brought this about. Everything that you think, speak and choose is cause. Cause always produces effects, for good or ill.
The great secret to life is to learn to manage cause. When you learn to do this you will automatically manage the effects or events of your life. Always work on the level of cause and effect takes care of itself.
A simple example is hitting a baseball in the back yard with your son or daughter. You notice that you are facing a large picture window 30 yards away but you hit the ball anyway. Well, you hit a home run! Problem is, the home run shattered the large picture window which will cost several hundred dollars to repair. You caused this to happen, it was not Fortune, luck or fate. You saw the window and decided to say, oh what the heck, and hit the ball anyway. The cause was hitting the ball where you knew you could break a window and the effect was the broken window.
So it is with everything in your life. To get off of this wheel, trace your problem or difficulty back to its genesis and then change the cause. Think a new thought, speak a new word and get a new result.
In 2004 I was diagnosed with prostate cancer, which came as quite a shock and a surprise because I felt just great. Thank God I had to take an insurance blood test which caught the problem in time. But why prostate cancer? What is cancer? It is not an infection or a contagious disease. It is simply the body turning on itself and beginning to eat itself alive. Scary isn’t it?
Medical science is beginning to understand what we in Religious Science have known for many years. Where you are holding chronic anger, sorrow, fear, feelings of inferiority, that part of the body will be the one attacked by cancer.
Prostate for a man is the site of sexuality, procreation, elimination and intimate relationships. For a woman it might be breasts or the cervical area. I have been a serial monogamist in that I have been married more times than I care to share here today. This caused me great pain, financial lack and feelings of inferiority because I did not sustain a lifelong marriage as I was taught to do. This sorrow, sadness and sense of loss was the cause of this cancer.
I am celebrating my 17th anniversary with my dear wife, Susan and earnestly pray that her sparkling blue eyes are the last thing I see on this Earth. I apparently have learned a great lesson that will profit my soul in future experiences. Thus the cancer has never returned. Yes, I was physically healed by a team of magnificent physicians whose hands and skill were the hands of God, but without my healing of my lifelong relationship issues, the cancer would have soon returned.
You and I are the ultimate creators and healers in our lives; using the power that the Creator has given. We all have that power; every single person on this planet can do what I have done and billions before me have done. It is your birthright but so few understand it or use it.
They look outside for the answers but they have been within you and I all of our lives. This innate power is the Kingdom of Heaven. As the Master said: “Look not up there or over there but look within”.
When the roof falls in in your world, go within! There lies the answer and the cure. From the effect, the wreckage, the rubble; trace back like pulling yarn on a sweater…. back, back, back until you see the cause. Remove that cause and rebuild the roof of your life…. it is simple but not easy. Get going right now!
