8. Live Your Desires With Passion, And They Will Come
Adapted From: The Science of Getting Rich
Passion Is The Currency Of Creation
It is not enough that you should have a general desire for wealth “to do good with.” Everybody has that desire.
The intelligent substance will not know what form to manifest you wealth, unless you give it specific and definite instruction.
That clear mental picture you must have continually in mind. It is your compass to where your desire will appear.
This does not mean setting aside times of the day to concentrate on your desires. Its about incorporating the mental picture of what you want into every part of your life. By doing so you guide you actions towards the pathways of delivery.
Your desire for riches must be strong enough to overcome mental laziness and the love of ease, and to make them work. Eventually, your desire will become self fulfilling.
The more clear and definite you make your picture then, and the more you dwell upon it, bringing out all its details, the stronger your desire will be. And the stronger your desire, the easier it will be to hold your mind fixed upon the picture of what you want.
The secret is to have a purpose behind your clear vision to bring it out in tangible expression. And behind this purpose, an invincible and unwavering FAITH that the thing is already yours, that it is in the process of becoming yours.
Live in the new house, mentally, until it takes form around you physically. In the mental realm, enter at once into full enjoyment of the things you want. Dwell upon your mental picture until it is clear and distinct, and then take the mental attitude of ownership toward everything in that picture. And be grateful for every step towards attaining your complete desire.
You do not need to pray repeatedly for things you want. It is not necessary to tell the universal intelligence about it every day.
You do not need to verbalise affirmations of your desire over and over. The answer to prayer is not according to your faith while you are talking, but according to your faith while you are working.
Believe that ye shall receive
Live in the new house, wear the fine clothes, ride in the automobile, go on the journey, and confidently plan for greater journeys. Think and speak of all the things you have asked for in terms of actual present ownership.
Hold to the FAITH that the imaginary is being realized and to your PURPOSE to realize it.
