The other day I was standing in a line … I have so many “ah ha” moments in lines J I was listening to a conversation between a Mother and a young girl. The Mother had said no to something, and was giving an explanation, when the child butted in saying “What does that mean?” The Mother started her explanation again. As I listened I realized the explanation didn’t mean a thing to the child, indeed it was just an excuse for saying no.

Later that day, someone asked me to do something, and I launched into an explanation of why I couldn’t, and right in the middle I remembered that scene in the store. It came to me how much we feel we have to explain ourselves to others.

I began to wonder if we feel we have to explain ourselves to God. Do we have to give a reason why we want something? Have we forgotten that the Law, being impersonal, doesn’t need an explanation, or an excuse for our desires?

Do you remember the cartoon character Mr. Natural ??

Me: “Mr. Natural, what does it all mean?”
Mr. Natural: “Don't mean shee-it.”)

Those of you who are my age will remember this character … and smile. We want Life to have meaning and so we give meaning to everything. So much so we share that meaning as excuses with everyone around us. Nothing has meaning except for what we give it. What if we didn’t need an excuse for wanting more good in our lives? What if we could approach the Law with a “Just because” attitude? Somehow it seems to me, if we need an excuse, we really don’t feel we are deserving of our good. Please understand that we are Living Law just as we are. The Law doesn’t care what we want to attract, It just works for us, through us, as us.

Maybe we need to start an Excuse Free World campaign!! Big Grin!

SPIRITUAL MIND TREATMENT

I recognize the powerful Presence here and everywhere. I know It is infinitely intelligent and unconditionally loving, and is working in this world through and as me. I really let this sink in. I embody the Truth: I am God made manifest just as I am.

I now choose to let go of my need to make excuses for myself and my desires. I am doing exactly what I am supposed to be doing. I want more money, and there is no reason why I can not have it. I want to be healthy, and there is nothing that says I am to suffer with illness. I want more love, and there is nothing that says I do not deserve it. I want to use my creative talents in the world, and there is nothing that says I am not supposed to. No one makes my laws except for me. No one gives meaning to my Life except for me. In remembering Who I AM, I now understand that Life is for me, and the Law will work for me, through me, for what ever I set my mind and heart to.

I now accept both the freedom this gives me, and the responsibility. Love points the way and Divine Wisdom guides me with ease and grace. The Law works wonderfully and I use It with great joy!

Gratefully I release these words, knowing they are already done. And so It is!
