A Spirituality Devoid of Faith

A Spirituality Devoid of Faith

A Note from Neale...

Hello, Everyone... 

Last week we engaged in a fascinating conversation about practical spirituality, ending with the question: Am I discovering my future, or deciding about it? 

Conversations with God says that "every act is an act of self-definition." CWG also says, "Life is not a process of discovery, it is a process of creation." It is not ours to "discover" Who We Are, it is ours to "create" Who We Are. 

Yet how can we create Who We Are if we already are that...? If we already are Divine, how can we be said to actively and willfully create ourselves as being Divine? 

The answer to the question lies beneath a fundamental truth: It is impossible to create anything. CWG tells us that everything that ever was, is now, and ever will be...IS, Right Now. If this is accurate (and it is), then we cannot truly "create" anything, we can only notice that whatever we wish to experience has already been created. 

What we are doing, then, is a process of manifestation, not a process of creation. The dictionary defines "manifestation" as "an event, action, or object that clearly shows or embodies something." It says nothing about creation. That's because a manifestation is not a creation. It is an event, action, or object that clearly shows or embodies something that you desire, which already IS; which already exists. 

Thus, you are not calling into existence, but calling forth FROM existence, that which you wish to now experience. There is a huge difference between the two. 

And so, in answer to the question that ignited this whole exploration...we cannot "create ourselves as being Divine." Yet what we can do is manifest our own Divinity.

How does 'manifestation' take place? 

All of this might lead one to ask: what is the process by which manifestation takes place? How does it happen? 

We do not "manifest" something by wishing for it. We manifest something by noticing it. That is, we notice that it already exists; that it is Now Existing. Or, in the case of an action, that it is Now Taking Place. One of the most wonderful Affirmations that I have enjoyed giving to people who wish to increase their financial abundance, for instance, is: All the money I need is coming to me now

This is not a statement of what I am hoping for, this is a statement of what is happening right now. The two are not even close to being the same. 

The two words that start the ignition 

I frequently tell students that there are two words which are very powerful is the processing of Manifestation. These words are: I AM. 

These words are a noticement, not a request (as in a prayer) or a creation. They are a noticing of what is already true, not an announcement of what we are going to produce in our reality as being true, or of what we hope will pass. 

Manifestation arises not out of hoping, but out of knowing. Pure knowing. Thus, it is not a question of having faith, but of having awareness. 

When you step into your darkened bedroom, you do not have "faith" that when you flick the light switch the bulb will come on, you have a sure and certain awareness that this is what happens when you use the switch. You act out of an awareness that this is what you must do to produce light in the room. Faith is not part of the equation. You do not have to "have faith" that the lights go on when you turn the switch, you know that they do, because you know how this all works. 

The same is true with Life. When you know for a certainty how Life works, you never again have a need for faith. You have replaced, in your personal spirituality, faith with knowing

When Jesus said to Lazarus, "Arise and walk," he did not have faith that Lazarus would rise from the dead. He knew that Lazarus would do so. How could he have come to such knowing? It is quite simple. He knew Who He Really Was. He understood, accepted, embraced, and demonstrated his Divinity. 

When we do the same, our lives and our world will change. 

Love and Hugs,
