I’ve been reading a lot about how to define and get rid of matter. Sounds weird, doesn’t it? Get rid of matter, I mean, really? Yes! The reason I say that is because prior to a new understanding, I saw matter as things, not anymore.
Since I have discovered the world around us is a projection of our thought, I realized matter must be a type of thought. If spiritualized thought is freeing and unlimited, then material thinking, being the opposite of Spirit, must be restrictive limited thinking. The so-called substance we think of a matter is simply a symbol of finite thinking. Over the years, little by little, I finally understood this, and what it has met in my life.
Growing up in an abusive home, my thinking was all restrictive and limited. I knew nothing else. With each little bit of spiritual growth, my thinking was freeing up. I was letting go of all the negative, destructive thinking that was consuming me and destroying my life.
I discovered I was not an abused child subject to depression, anxiety, and all sorts of mental anguish. I was God’s child, innocent and unlimited. I could continue to align myself with material thinking or re-align myself with God and spiritualize my thought. I chose God. By doing this, I was freed up to express who I am as the image of God. I stopped believing I was crippled by my past and moved on.
Since I’ve been practicing this new way of thinking and acting, things that used to be common to me, like depression, headaches, and colds, have vanished from my life. I have not been troubled by any of these things in over thirty years. Unlimited thinking produces good mental and physical health. I am evidence of that.
I learned the way to free myself of limited thinking was to pour in thoughts that are not narrow, confined, or limited. I needed to break down the walls by filling my thought so full of God’s spiritual ideas of love and peace, that there is no room left for the other. I cannot be expressing Godlike qualities and, at the same time, negative qualities. “Out of the same mouth proceedeth blessing and cursing. My brethren, these things ought not so to be. Doth a fountain send forth at the same place sweet water and bitter?” (James 3:10, 11) With thought and actions filled with spiritual qualities, fear is replaced with love, and spiritual vitality replaces apathy, and enlightenment replaces ignorance.
Through this process, man does not disappear, and material substance does not disappear; limits disappear. I am God’s image and likeness. We all are, and when I realized this, I became unencumbered by the symbols of matter because they no longer negatively existed for me.
From the moment of my inception I was Gods innocent, beautiful, pure child. “And God saw everything that he had made, and, behold, it was very good.” (Gen. 1:31 (to 1st .)) Peeling back the peddles of mortal beliefs, ingrained in me from my material birth, revealed my innate Godlike character, and has been a wonderful journey.
Even the years of abuse could not change who I truly am and understanding that allows the light to shine through and obliterate the darkness that had hidden that truth from me. I am free, unlimited, happy and so grateful for this uncovering of my true identity. And please, always, remember that what is true about me is true about all mankind. We are all God’s Children.
I am not anything special or different. We are all the same. What is good for me is good for you. So, fill your thought with all the goodness God has for you, and the limited, constrictive thinking will dissipate, dissolve into the nothingness from which it came. It never was real to start with. If God did not make it, it was never made, never a part of his creation.
So, get rid of matter (limited thinking); doing so reveals unlimited possibilities. “…with God all things are possible.” (Matt. 19:26) Go out there and prove for yourself; with God, you can change your life.
God bless you all. Michele
