Today I am choosing to share with you an idea that I got from the reading of an Essay, by Thomas Troward entitled: The I Am.
The main idea that stands out for me is that our human tendency is to see ourselves seperate from each other and our Source or Creator. This essay does a great job illustrating how we must learn to see ourselves as a ‘whole’ in order to manifest our purpose.
In the law of Attraction as popularly understood we need to simply ‘wish’ for something and it will manifest. In the understanding of Troward — WE FIRST NEED TO SEE OURSELVES AS WHOLE.
I NEED TO SEE AND UNDERSTAND THAT GOD IS NOT ‘OUT’ THERE AND I AM HERE. Rather
I need to grasp that God and me is the same thing. There is no separation between what is called God and me and you and me. We are ONE.
I need to see the whole and as I remember that I am Universal and Individual all at the same time. As I rise into that awareness I understand that I am the ’cause’ of the life I see outside of me. The more I come into the awareness of UNITY, I come to express my truth as naturally as water flowing down a hill. I stop trying to change the circumstances of my life. I see and identify with the truth and I shape my world from within.
Troward does need repeated listening to begin to understand, so I encourage you to be patient knowing it is in your capacity and mine to really understand this stuff. I dare say it is the will of God.
