How big is your container? (a look into consciousness)

If you go to the ocean with a teaspoon, that spoon will fill up with water pretty fast. Go down to the ocean with a bucket, and you’ll get more water. If it’s raining and you leave a bucket outside—but the bucket is turned up-side-down, it wont’ catch a drop.

What if our containers, instead of teaspoons and buckets, were our minds, where our imaginations held what we desired. In New Thought, water is symbolic for consciousness, but let’s shift to the container itself. How big is it? How much good can you accept? If you go to the ocean with a teaspoon, you won’t be able to accept much. What if you go to the ocean with a bucket? How about leaving a big bowl, upright to catch the rainfall?

Do you have an abundance consciousness? Do you read this and envision the Grand Canyon as your container to fill?

Try this:

Sit and think of lots of different containers you could use. Think big! See them fill up with experiences you’d like to have. Is your container large enough to hold an airplane? Cruise ship? House? Lots of loving relationships? Keep expanding it to hold more wonderful things. Remember, the universe keeps expanding, so why not your container!
