“There is One Source of Being” H. Emilie Cady
H. Emilie Cady in her classic book, Lessons in Truth says, “There is but one Source of Being. This Source is the living fountain of all good, be it life, love, wisdom, power-the Giver of all good gifts. This is Source and you are connected, every moment of your existence.”
If we were to really take the time to ponder these words and make them our own, our lives would change beyond recognition. I can look around at my life and see the evidence to prove this statement. I look at the flowers
sitting on my deck blazing with color and life and beauty. I look over at my dog laid out on my couch peacefully and with complete trust sleeping away the morning and see it as more proof that I am connected to the unlimited flow of all good.
Cady later on goes on to say that it is up to us to access this power. This is rather simple although it may feel hard at times. So, often we look at the world and conditions around us and we see it all as proof that we are not connected to a Source. In fact, our outer circumstances may suggest that our Source has abandoned us completely. But, with a simple shift in perspective and orientation, the proof of God’s presence and abundance is there.
Our lives take on the shape of our focus. If we train our brains to look for the things that are not working, then that is what we will see. If instead we begin to retrain our minds to notice the things that are working-the loving people in our lives , the abundance that flows in unexpected ways, the times we feel good and the days or the moments that our jobs are rewarding and joyous-we tend to notice the negative less often and we grow that which we focus on.
Don’t just take my word for it. Give it a try. Today, set your intention to pay attention to those things that prove that you are forever connected to source. Pay attention to the times that someone is there to help you. Pay attention to the times that you experience abundance and meaning and purpose. Pay attention to the times you experience love. Then notice how you feel and what your reaction is to the times when things may not go exactly according to plan. Just do this experiment and see what happens.
