Do you believe in God? Goddess? Infinite Intelligence?
Emmet Fox said ” true religion may well be summed up as the Practice of the Presence of God”. God being whatever or whoever you believe is your higher power. If you don’t believe in a higher power I would stop reading now its kinda pointless. With that info in hand how do you go about practicing the presence of God, I don’t like to use God cause of all the religious baggage the name has, so lets call it Tod. How do you go about practicing the presence of Tod? Well with the Spiritual Laws of the Universe of course.
So what are the spiritual laws you ask? These are the Spiritual Laws according to Emmet Fox:
Law of Substitution
Law of Relaxation
Law of Subconscious Activity
Law of Practice
Law of Forgiveness
The Dual Law of Thought
Law of Growth
Now I use the Spiritual Laws according to Mark J, but these work for beginners.
Let us start with the first law and its uses in practicing the presences of Tod. The Law of Substitution, your mind can only hold one thought at a time. Pretty easy to see how this is used in practicing the presence of Tod, but I will spell it out none the less cause this is my blog and I can do what I want here!
Instead of thinking negative thoughts such as; “I hate Dora she is such a bitch”, “WTF you cut me off”, “John got MY promotion, worthless jerk”, “I would look way better in that shirt”, “she is a whore” & one of my favorites “I hate everyone” You replace those thoughts with thoughts of happy things. Happy thoughts like an awesome time you had camping, your pets, your dream house, how awesome your 3 day weekend is going to be, your favorite moment in the whole world, or the obvious and center of the post, Tod.
Now by clearing all the negative bad juju from your mind and soul, poof you are practicing the presence of Tod. Wasn’t that easy! No religious mumbo jumbo here. Just do the next right thing and focus on the positive you are on the straight and narrow to happiness! Your Welcome!
