More words of wisdom from Catherine Ponder’s ‘The Millionaire Moses’:
You must learn to claim your good in the face of opposition and in the midst of hard conditions.
We all deal with feelings of depression and discouragement that confront us when challenges arise to affect our dreams, desires and emotions.
These appear as problems and challenges. There is nothing negative about having to overcome problems or to meet challenges in life. They are experiences in growth. You grow inwardly as well as outwardly.
If you meet these situations in a certain way, they can cause you to grow into your expanded good and prosper.
1) There are some problems that result from your own negative thoughts, words and actions.
When you begin to think, speak and act consciously and constructively upon the belief in omnipresent good, you overcome these problems quickly or at least progressively.
2) There are also problems that result from the mere necessity for growth. By meeting these problems with conscious and constructive thoughts, words and actions you grow out of the problem into an increased understanding. In the process, you have planted your roots deeply in the invisible realm of substance, which gives you a firm foundation for experiencing all of life’s blessings in ever-increasing ways.
Plato knew this when he spoke of the two kinds of blindness that affect mankind:
First, there is the blindness of going from light into darkness.
This is the first kind of problem you have, caused by negative thinking.
Second, there is the blindness of coming out of the darkness into the light.
These are problems in growth.
All of these problems, challenges and obstacles are blessings in disguise. These are times of soul-expansion into the light of increased understanding and use of one’s mind powers.
Although these two kinds of problems look alike, they are very different. Knowledge of this is your secret weapon for prosperity and success.
Every situation is full of good. The greater the challenge, the greater the growth and benefit.
By blessing your challenges and obstacles and undertaking the lesson cheerfully, you grow more easily and are victorious!
