It is sometimes asked, “Why do you use Abraham quotes as a launching platform?” Because they are good…right on target for all Unity/New Thought teachings, and handy.
“One who is mostly an observer thrives in good times but suffers in bad times because what he is observing is already vibrating, and as he observes it, he includes it in his vibrational countenance. As he includes it, the Universe accepts that as his point of attraction and gives him more of it. So the better it gets the better it gets. Or the worse it gets the worse it gets. While one who is a visionary thrives in all times.” — Abraham [Excerpted from Portland, OR – Tuesday, June 10th, 1997]
As has been often said, we all the time, make the conscious or unconscious choice to operate life from within a thermometer or thermostat state of consciousness. This can be disquieting to hear as are many things that speak to self-responsibility, the law of consciousness and mind-action or attraction. We have not been set adrift on a sea of luck, accident or chance, but upon a sea of what can be called Spiritual Law. Knowing this, even though we may not always consciously remember and apply it is power, for we will catch ourselves the quicker and re-focus our thinking on being what Abraham calls a visionary, meaning one who never predicates expectations, thoughts or words upon what can be called the vibratory energies of “bad times.” Not always easy as we are bombarded by negative prognosticators, but nevertheless bottom line are choices we make. Initially it indeed is easier to let “what is” be a choice for what I want to be. Not a good choice for someone who wants to thrive. Can do?
