New Thought: What is Law of Mind?

The Universal mind creates. It doesn’t judge. It doesn’t condemn or have favorites. It responds to our direction. Our astrological sign doesn’t matter, nor does our religion. What matters is how we direct the Law of Mind. This is the energy that knows all, and because we have free-will, It waits on our guidance.

Being impersonal, It doesn’t know what it creates—only that it does create. If It seems to create what we don’t want, or wishy-washy results, that’s a sign that we, not God (Universe, Law, Energy—call it whatever you’re comfortable with) need to make a change. We need to shift our thinking, or consciousness (which will eventually shift our thinking.) We need to get clear on what we want and to decide that our want is worth taking the time to pray, meditate or read. Is it worth noticing our passing thoughts, our off-the-cuff comments? We can’t think and say negative things and experience positive outcomes. We can’t tell our woeisme story and experience strength and success. Which side of the fence are you on? If you teeter, your results teeter.

Make a conscious choice about an experience you want. A better job, a loving relationship, moving to a place you love as much as where you live now—and some. To set it in motion, you must first set in mind. By setting it in your mind, you place it in the Mind of God—The Infinite Intelligence, The Law of Mind, The One.

Next, you must do your part by keeping negative away from what you claim to want. Negative comes in the form of worry, doubt, and thoughts as well as words and actions. If you know a friend of yours will laugh, make fun of, or disagree, it’s not the time to share this with them. You must get yourself on board first before you try to recruit others. Even when you get in the grove and life is humming along, I’d steer clear of what amounts to proselytizing to those who don’t want to be in your club. It’s a waste of your time and energy. If they show interest in how your life works, share it. If not, let them do their thing, and you do yours. otherwise, they’ll try to sell you their opinion in why your way doesn’t work, and that brings you back to doubt. The only way for someone to learn this stuff is buy doing. If “it” doesn’t work, perhaps the designer (you) made an error. Not specific enough. Too specific. Gave it to Universal Mind, then took it right back.

. . . What perfect timing! I just saw someone attempt to enter the laundry room. They punched in the code, and couldn’t get in—so they kicked the door. They went to get the manager. He came and put in the code, and the door opened. Ta-Daa! Next time something doesn’t go smoothly for you, stop. Step back. Take a breath and bring Universal Mind into the situation.

How to wake up early and cheerful.

Are you excited about life when you wake up in the morning? Does hearing birds chirp outside your window while you’re still in bed, make you smile? It does me! Even if I sometimes wish the birds would hold off a bit longer, I always end up smiling, and sometimes laughing. The birds are so excited about the new day!

The birds sound like a bunch of kids waiting for a field trip to start, or friends getting together for a good chat over breakfast. “Oh I saw the most beautiful sunrise this morning!” “I had the best worm and bug for breakfast! —And did you see the new basil on that woman’s patio? I love basil!”

In the Spring, if you pay close attention, you’ll hear conversations between parent birds and their young. The young will mimic the sounds made by their parent—be corrected, and try again. A few days later, you won’t hear them. They’ve had their “it’s time to leave the nest” conversation, and are off.

Next time you get bent out of shape when your Saturday begins a bit earlier than you’d planed, shift your focus and listen to the birds. It just may make you smile.
