Put It To The Test
The whole world is a stage and we are the director. The world is an external copy of our human imagination. This isn't a theory. You can easily test this. That is what I want to talk about -- to tell you about testing this law, that your imagination creates reality. Your world is the sum total of all of your imaginal acts, thoughts, inner conversations, and assumptions of self. Each change in assumption, each imaginal act performed, each inner-conversation added or modified can later be tracked to a change in this world.
It is so easy to test that this is true. And if this is true, that means that simply by changing this activity in your mind, in your consciousness, you can change the world. Everything that you believe you know about self is everything that you are experiencing in this world. Your position in society, your income, your personality, your friendships, the place you live -- all things are in existence are a side effect of a single or combination of assumptions that you carry.
I look at each assumption as a seed. Each seed grows something in it's likeness. If you imagine that you are handsome or beautiful, that seed will sprout into all the people of this world seeing you in that light, and proving it to you. If you believe that you are smart, that will grow into you actually being smart, and reflections proving that to you. I often look at this world as a garden. Everything you encounter in this life is the sprout of a seed you have planted, the seeds you continue to plant. By changing the seeds that you plant, you change the plants that grow from that. But the plants are not static. They are not just vegetable. They are living, breathing creatures, massive structures, personality traits, conversations that you have with people, the luck you experience, and the money that you make.
You are to tend the garden of your mind. What type of garden do you have? Well, I can tell you by looking at your life. "You shall know them by their fruits" - Matthew 7:16. You will know what someone is thinking, or what someone has thought, by the things that are present in their life. That is why it is said in the bible:
"But I say unto you, That whosoever looketh on a woman to lust after her hath committed adultery with her already in his heart." - Matthew 5:28
For those things that you entertain in secret, God will reveal them to you. So be sure to think and dwell upon things that will benefit you and everyone else in this world. For once you plant the seed, if it begins to sprout by showing signs of it's rooting, you will not be able to stop it. You are human, so you cannot control every single thing that enters into your mind, but you can choose the thoughts to entertain. Are you suffering? Are you in pain? Are you poor? Sad? Angry? Do you have a hard luck story? Are things not going so well for you? Whatever your story is up until now, you can change it.
To plant the seeds of desire, you simply imagine the end. You construct a scene which embodies the fulfilled desire, and play it in your imagination. When you have done this successfully, and felt the feelings of the wish fulfilled, then you will have planted the seed, and you will watch it come to pass. Be sure to do this every day. Do this multiple times per day. Imagine the solution to all problems that you encounter. And tend to your garden -- the garden of God. Do not let other plants creep in. Create a garden worth keeping. For you have this life, and this life is for you, and you have complete and total control over it.
I cannot make you believe this, and if you don't want to, then don't. But I would put it to the test before you claim that it doesn't work. For no one who puts it to the test can prove that it doesn't work. You will prove that it works. Sit down and contemplate all the things you want in this world. Construct what a happy, full life would look like to you. Ask yourself, "If there was nothing in the way between me and everything I wanted, what would I ask for?" Or you can ask yourself, "If I could snap my fingers right now and be the person I desire to be, what would that look like? What would I see? Who would I be with? What would I hear? What would I taste? Touch? What would I have? Where would I be?"
Run through all of your desires. Make a list. Everything you have ever wanted. Everything you could ever want. And then add more. Make your ideal grand. Better than the best you know. Then construct scenes for each of these things. Discount your current situation completely. Do not think about "how". Only think of the end. How could you think of the "how" if you already have it? That is the way you should be looking at this. Condensed the scenes for each of your desires, so that you can easily remember them. What would you want?
Be specific. I know what I want. Do you?
Then tend to the garden. Plant your seeds. Bring these scenes before your mind's eye. You don't have to do them all at once. Do them at different times, with different techniques. Imagine your good health, your sober mind, your happiness, your good heart, your loving friends, your family, your success, your joy, the healing of friends, the riches, the glory, the freedom. Imagine all of these things. Imagine them so deeply, so descriptively, so REAL that you feel the feelings as if they have really happened.
Do this, and drop it. For the seed of the likeness of the imaginal act was created. The seed was constructed by the imaginal act. Now, when you drop it into the soil, and let it grow, the imaginal act will become a fact. For if we know that we have imagined it, then we know that he has heard it. And if we know he has heard it, then we know that it will be made manifest. So once you have imagined it, drop it, and do not think anything contrary. And when the signs come, when you see shoots, you will experience it soon.
"And if we know that He hears us, whatever we might ask, we know that we have the requests that we have asked from Him." 1 John 5:15
I know what I would want. I would want to be happy. I would want to have tremendous success. I would want my life's work to be focused on these teachings. I want to awaken the world. I want all to know that their imagination is the sole creator of reality, and that they are God. I would want a group of good friends to talk to about these topics on a regular basis, friends that are advanced in these teachings, and whom are living their life in this manner. I would want a lovely wife, whom was into the same things. I would want a nice house, a nice yard, in a nice place. I would want freedom. Joy. Excitement. I would want to see my manifestations hundreds of times per day. I would want more mystical experiences than I could share.
But that is not good enough, not for me. Although I could imagine having a conversation with someone, telling them about how all of those things came true, I, myself, would want to make it more specific. So that I could see the miraculous power of God working. To test it. To prove to me, that all of these things stemmed from my mind, and not just some luck.
All of the things I have imagined, all of the things I have impressed upon my own true self, God, I KNOW that they will be manifest. How do I know this? Because I have seen so many thousands of manifestations unfold that there is no going back. I was shown that God dwells inside my imagination. I was shown that Christ is within me, in Golgotha, the skull, years ago. I know that not everyone has experienced that. But you don't need to have experienced that to prove to yourself that this world is a reflection of your mind -- that God is your imagination, and that you are the operant power of this world. All you have to do is plant the seeds. Plant the seeds, and tend to your garden. Make sure that only lovely seeds are planted in your garden.
And what about the plants that exist now that need to be uprooted? What about those? Just as the sun gives life to a plant, so does awareness and focus give life to the garden of our mind. Imagine that all of your problems are solved. Create scenes which are the solution to the problems and negative things that exist in your consciousness. Imagine them. And then avert focus, avert awareness, avert attention from those things which are negative. Never dwell upon things which are negative. Never dwell upon things which you do not want to exist in your world. When you avert your attention, when you remove your awareness, when you cut out the sunlight of the spirit from those unlovely things, you are killing of those very plans. They will not longer produce more in their own likeness.
"As a man thinketh in his heart, so is he." - Proverbs 23:7
And you are God. All things exist in God, including this world that you are a part of. This world of shadows is just a projection of your mind. The thought comes first, and then comes the manifestation in this 3D world that you were once asleep to. So all things which you think, you become. And all things you become, are then projected in this world.
"Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.
Those things, which ye have both learned, and received, and heard, and seen in me, do: and the God of peace shall be with you."
So do this. For you will not be let down. For God shall not be mocked. Create a world of your liking. Do it in your mind, for that is the only thing you are responsible for. And the world will turn out to be shaped in it's likeness. In your mind's image. Prove that your imagination creates reality. Test this all the time. Imagine only lovely thing. Imagine health, wealth, love, and happiness.
