Being a Co-Creator with God
Do you truly believe that you have control over the circumstances in your life? Or do you believe that your life's path is controlled by fate, by someone or something external to yourself? Think carefully before answering these questions.
Now is the time to take dominion, and accept your role as a co-creator with God. Your thoughts, words, and deeds create the environment around you. Remember the universal law: what you pay attention to, that you energize, and what you energize, that you become. If you always see the negative side of things, if you always complain about the events in your life, you are creating a cloud that follows you everywhere and invades every aspect of your life. If you stay on this path, the cloud will become bigger and bigger until it eventually rains on you.
What you want to create is a bright, shining sun through positive thought, through always seeing the good in every situation and in every person. Then, no matter what happens that bright, shining sun will burn away all negativity, all fear, all doubt. This is the path to enlightenment. Contemplate Mathew 5:43-48 which says:
"Ye have heard that it hath been said, Thou shalt love thy neighbor, and hate thine enemy; But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them who despitefully use you, and persecute you, That ye may be the sons of your Father, who is in heaven; for he maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust. For if ye love them who love you, what reward have ye? Do not even the tax collectors the same? And if ye greet your brethren only, what do ye more than others? Do not even the heathen so? Be ye, therefore, perfect, even as your Father, who is in heaven, is perfect."
