Day 166/365: The Watchman at the Gate

June 15, 2011

The Secret Door to Success,
by Florence Scovel Shinn, [1941]

We must all have a watchman at the gate of our thoughts. The Watchman at the Gate is the superconscious mind.

We have the power to choose our thoughts.

Since we have lived in the race thought for thousands of years, it seems almost impossible to control them. They rush through our minds like stampeding cattle or sheep.

But a single sheep-dog can control the frightened sheep and guide them into the sheep pen.

I saw a picture in the news-reels of a shepherd-dog controlling the sheep. He had rounded up all but three. These three resisted and resented. They baahed and lifted their front feet in protest, but the dog simply sat down in front and never took his eyes off them. He did not bark or threaten. He just sat and looked his determination. In a little while the sheep tossed their heads and went in the pen.

We can learn to control our thoughts in the same way, by gentle determination, not force.

We take an affirmation and repeat it continually, while our thoughts are on the rampage.

We cannot always control our thoughts, but we can control our words, and repetition impresses the subconscious, and we are then master of the situation.

In the sixth chapter of Jeremiah we read: “I set a watchman over you, saying, Hearken to the sound of the trumpet.”

Your success and happiness in life depend upon the watchman at the gate of your thoughts, for your thoughts, sooner or later, crystallize on the external.

People think by running away from a negative situation, they will be rid of it, but the same situation confronts them wherever they go.

They will meet the same experiences until they have learned their lessons. This idea is brought out in the moving picture, “The Wizard of Oz.”

The little girl, Dorothy, is very unhappy because the mean woman in the village wants to take away her dog, Toto.

She goes, in despair, to confide in her Aunt Em and Uncle Henry, but they are too busy to listen, and tell her to “run along.”

She says to Toto, “There is somewhere, a wonderful place high above the skies where everybody is happy and no one is mean.” How she would love to be there!

A Kansas cyclone suddenly comes along, and she and Toto are lifted up, high in the sky, and land in the country of Oz.

Everything seems very delightful at first, but soon she has the same old experiences. The mean old woman of the village has turned into a terrible witch, and is still trying to get Toto from her.

How she wishes she were back in Kansas.

She is told to find the Wizard of Oz. He is all powerful and will grant her request.

She starts off to find his palace in the Emerald City.

On the way she meets a scarecrow. He is so unhappy because he hasn’t a brain.

She meets a man made of tin, who is so unhappy because he hasn’t a heart.

Then she meets a lion who is so unhappy because he has no courage.

She cheers them up by saying, “We’ll all go to the Wizard of Oz and he’ll give us what we want”—the scarecrow a brain, the tin man a heart, and the lion courage.

They encounter terrible experiences, for the bad witch is determined to capture Dorothy and take away Toto and the ruby slippers which protect her.

At last they reach the Emerald Palace of the Wizard of Oz.

They ask for an audience, but are told no one has ever seen the Wizard of Oz, who lives mysteriously in the palace.

But through the influence of the good witch of the North, they enter the palace. There they discover that the Wizard is just a fake magician from Dorothy’s home town in Kansas.

They are all in despair because their wishes cannot be granted!

But then the good witch shows them that their wishes are already granted. The scarecrow has developed a brain by having to decide what to do in the experiences he has encountered, the tin man finds he has a heart because he loves Dorothy, and the lion has become courageous because he had to show courage in his many adventures.

The good witch from the North says to Dorothy, “What have you learned from your experiences?” and Dorothy replies, “I have learned that my heart’s desire is in my own home and in my own front yard.” So the good witch waves her wand, and Dorothy is at home again.

She wakes up and finds that the scarecrow, the tin man, and the lion are the men who work on her uncle’s farm. They are so glad to have her back. This story teaches that if you run away your problems will run after you.

Be undisturbed by a situation, and it will fall away of its own weight.

There is an occult law of indifference. “None of these things moves me.” “None of these things disturbs me;” we might say in modern language.

When you can no longer be disturbed, all disturbance will disappear from the external.

“When your eyes have seen your teachers, your teachers disappear.”

“I set watchmen over you, saying, Hearken to the sound of the trumpet.”

A trumpet is a musical instrument, used in olden times, to draw people’s attention to something; to victory, to order.

You will form the habit of giving attention to every thought and word, when you realize their importance.

The imagination, the scissors of the mind, is constantly cutting out the events to come into your life.

Many people are cutting out fear-pictures. Seeing things which are not divinely planned.

With the “single eye,” man sees only the Truth. He sees through evil, knowing that out of it comes good. He transmutes injustice into justice, and disarms his seeming enemy by sending goodwill.

We read in mythology of the Cyclops, a race of giants, said to have inhabited Sicily. These giants had only one eye in the middle of the forehead.

The seat of the imagining faculty is situated in the forehead (between the eyes). So these fabled giants came from this idea.

You are indeed a giant when you have a single eye. Then every thought will be a constructive thought, and every word, a word of Power.

Let the third eye be the watchman at the gate.

“If therefore thine eye be single, thy whole body is full of light.”

With the single eye your body will be transformed into your spiritual body, the “body electric” made in God’s likeness and image (imagination).

By seeing clearly the perfect plan, we could redeem the world: with our inner eye seeing a world of peace and plenty and good will.

“Judge not by appearances, judge righteous judgment.”

“Nation shall not lift up sword against nation, neither shall they learn war anymore.”

The occult law of indifference means that you are undisturbed by adverse appearances. You hold steadily to the constructive thought, which wins out.

Spiritual law transcends the law of Karma.

This is the attitude of mind which must be held by the healer or practitioner towards his patient.

Indifferent to appearances of lack, loss or sickness, he brings about the change in mind, body and affairs.

Let me quote from the thirty-first chapter of Jeremiah. The keynote is one of rejoicing. It gives a picture of the individual freed from negative thinking.

“For there shall be a day that the watchmen upon the mount Ephraim shall cry, Arise ye, and let us go up to Zion unto the Lord our God.”

The Watchman at the Gate neither slumbers nor sleeps. It is the “eye which watches over Israel.”

But the individual, living in a world of negative thought, is not conscious of this inner eye.

He may occasionally have flashes of intuition or illumination, then falls back into a world of chaos.

It takes determination and eternal vigilance to check up on words and thoughts. Thoughts of fear, failure, resentment and ill-will must be dissolved and dissipated.

Take the statement: “Every plant my father in heaven has not planted shall be rooted up.”

This gives you a vivid picture of rooting up weeds in a garden. They are thrown aside, and dry up because they are without soil to nourish them.

You nourish negative thoughts by giving them your attention. Use the occult law of indifference and refuse to be interested.

Soon you will starve out the “army of the aliens.” Divine ideas will crowd your consciousness, false ideas fade away, and you will desire only that which God desires through you.

The Chinese have a proverb, “The Philosopher leaves the cut of his coat to the tailor.”

So leave the plan of your life to the Divine Designer, and you will find all conditions permanently perfect.

The ground I am on is holy ground. I now expand rapidly into the divine plan of my life, where all conditions are permanently perfect.

Day 166/365

Day 165/365: I Shall Never Want

June 14, 2011

A strong message for everyone! Your dawn of Success, Happiness and Abundance is sure to come!

The Secret Door to Success, by Florence Scovel Shinn, [1941]

“The Lord is my Shepherd; I shall not want.” Psalms 23:1

The 23rd Psalm is the best known of all the Psalms—we might say that it is the keynote to the message of the Bible.

It tells man he shall never want, when he has the realization (or conviction) that the Lord is his Shepherd: the realization that Infinite Intelligence supplies every need.

If you get this conviction today, every need will be met now and forever-more; you will draw, instantly, from the abundance of the spheres, whatever you desire or require; for what you need is already on your pathway.

A woman suddenly had the realization: “The Lord is my Shepherd, I shall never want.” She seemed to be touching her invisible supply, she felt outside of Time and Space, she no longer relied on the external.

Her first demonstration was a small, but necessary one. She needed at once, some large paperclips, but had no time to go to a stationer’s to buy them.

In looking for something else, she opened a little-used chest, and in it, she found, about a dozen large paper-clips. She felt that the law was working, and gave thanks; then some needed money appeared, things large and small came her way.

Since then she has relied upon the statement: “The Lord is my Shepherd, I shall never want.”

We used to hear people say, “I do not think it is right to ask God for money or things.”

They did not realize that this Creative Principle is within each man.—(The Father within). True Spirituality is proving God as your supply, daily—not just once in a while.

Jesus Christ knew this law, for whatever He desired or required, appeared immediately on His pathway, the loaves and fishes and money from the fish’s mouth.

With this realization, all hoarding and saving would disappear.

This does not mean that you should not have a big bank account, and investments, but it does mean that you should not depend upon them, for if you had a loss in one direction, you would have a gain in another.

Always “your barns would be full and your cup flow over.”

Now, how does one make this contact with his invisible supply? By taking a statement of Truth which clicks and gives him realization.

This is not open to a chosen few, “Whosoever calleth on the name of the Lord shall be delivered.” The Lord is your shepherd and my shepherd and everybody’s shepherd.

God is the Supreme Intelligence devoted to supplying man’s need; the explanation is, that man is God in action. Jesus Christ said, “I and the Father are one.

We might paraphrase the statement and say, I and the great Creative Principle of the Universe, are one and the same.

Man only lacks when he loses his contact with this Creative Principle, which must be fully trusted, for it is Pure Intelligence and knows the way of Fulfillment.

The reasoning mind and personal will, cause a short circuit.

“Trust in me and I will bring it to pass.”

Most people are filled with apprehension and dread, when there is nothing to cling to on the external.

A woman came to a practitioner and said, “I’m only a poor little woman with no one but God back of me.” The practitioner said,—”You need not worry if you have God back of you,” for “all that the Kingdom affords is yours.”

A woman called me on the phone and said, almost in tears, “I’m so worried about the business situation.” I replied, “The situation with God remains the same: The Lord is your Shepherd: you shall not want.” “If one door shuts, another door opens.”

A very successful business-man who conducts all affairs on Truth methods, said, “The trouble with most people is, that they get to relying on certain conditions. They haven’t enough imagination to go forward—to open new channels.”

Nearly every big success is built upon a failure.

I was told that Edgar Bergen lost his part in a Broadway production because they did not want any more dummies. Noel Coward got him on the Rudy Vallee radio hour, and he and Charlie McCarthy became famous over night.

I told the story, at one of my meetings, of a man who was so poor and discouraged, that he ended it all. A few days later, came a letter notifying him that he had inherited a large fortune.

A man in the meeting said: “That means, when you want to be dead, your demonstration is three days off.” Yes, do not be fooled by the darkness before the dawn.

It is a good thing to see the dawn once in a while, to convince you how unfailing it is. It reminds me of an experience of several years ago.

I had a friend who lived in Brooklyn near Prospect Park. She liked to do unusual things and said to me: “Come to visit me and we’ll get up early and see the sun-rise in Prospect Park.”

At first I refused, and then came the hunch that it would be an interesting experience.

It was in the summer. We got up about four o’clock,—my friend, her little daughter and myself. It was pitch dark, but we sallied forth down the street, to the entrance of the Park.

Some policemen eyed us curiously, but my friend said to them with dignity, “We are going to see the sun-rise;” and it seemed to satisfy them. We walked through the Park to the beautiful rose-garden.

A faint pink streak appeared in the East, then suddenly, we heard a most tremendous uproar. We were near the Zoo and all the animals were greeting the dawn.

The lions and tigers roared, the hyenas laughed, there were shrieks and howls: every animal had something to say, for a new day was at hand.

It was indeed, most inspiring. The light slanted through the trees; everything had an unearthly aspect.

Then, as it grew lighter, our shadows were in front instead of behind us. The dawn of a new day!

This is the wonderful dawn which comes to each one of us, after some darkness.

Your dawn of Success, Happiness and Abundance is sure to come.

Every day is important, for we read in the wonderful Sanskrit poem, “Look well, therefore, to this day, such is the salutation of the dawn.”

This day the Lord is your Shepherd! This day, you shall not want; as you and this great Creative Principle are one and the same.

The 34th Psalm is also a Psalm of security. It starts with a blessing for the Lord, “I will bless the Lord at all times: His praise shall continually be in my mouth.”

“They that seek the Lord shall not want any good thing.” Seeking the Lord means that man must make the first move. “Draw near to me and I will draw near to thee, saith the Lord.”

You seek the Lord by making your affirmation, expecting and preparing for your good.

If you ask for success and prepare for failure, you will receive the thing you have prepared for.

I tell in my book, “The Game of Life and How to Play It,” of a man who asked me to speak the word that all his debts be wiped out.

After the treatment, he said, “Now I’m thinking what I’ll say to the people when I haven’t the money to pay them.” A treatment won’t help you if you haven’t faith in it, for faith and expectancy impress the subconscious mind with the picture of fulfillment.

In the 23rd Psalm we read, “He restoreth my soul.” Your soul is your subconscious mind and must be re-stored with the right ideas.

Whatever you feel deeply is impressed upon the subconscious, and manifests in your affairs.

If you are convinced that you are a failure, you will be a failure, until you impress the subconscious with the conviction you are a success.

This is done by making an affirmation which “clicks.”

A friend in a meeting said that I had given her the statement as she was leaving the room—”The ground you are on is harvest ground.” Things with her, had been very dull; but this statement clicked.

“Harvest Ground, Harvest Ground,” rang in her ears. Good things immediately commenced to come to her, and happy surprises.

The reason it is necessary to make an affirmation is because repetition impresses the subconscious. You cannot control your thoughts at first, but you can control your words, and Jesus Christ said: “By your words you are justified and by your words you are condemned.”

Every day, choose the right words; the right thoughts!

The Imaging faculty is the creative faculty: “Out of the imaginations of the heart come the issues of life.”

We have all a bank we can draw upon, the Bank of the Imagination.

Let us imagine ourselves rich, well and happy: imagine all our affairs in divine order; but leave the way of fulfillment to Infinite Intelligence.

“He has weapons ye know not of,” He has channels which will surprise you.

One of the most important passages in the 23rd Psalm is—”Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies.”

This means that even in the presence of the enemy situation, brought on by your doubts, fears or resentments, a way out is prepared for you.

The Lord is my Shepherd; I shall never want.
