step we turn our attention entirely away from the "problem" by
turning within to the recognition of the inner presence of the
infinite God. Re-cognition is "to know again": an awareness of an
inner reality and
Truth that we’ve always known, but perhaps have
not been conscious of. "God is…"
recognition of an infinite God is the basis of our awareness of
"oneness" with God. This infinite
universal God must be
individualized within me, as me. "If you have seen me, you have seen
God, for I
and the Father are one".
consciousness established in these first two steps arises the
realization of Truth, the embodiment
of the presence of God, an
inner truth and a spiritual reality. This realization is the
perception or conception
of the individual as a spiritual being
through whom the works of God are made manifest.
"I know…" "I see…" "I feel…"
Thanksgiving occurs in the moment that we realize that we have
received a great blessing. It is the acceptance of our Realization
as the mental equivalent of a sure and certain demonstration and
manifestation. In this step we acknowledge the infinite God as the
inner source of all good.
"I gratefully accept and give thanks for…"
In this step we
release ourselves from any sense of responsibility for the results
of this creative process
even as we release the seed unto the soil. At this point, our work
in the creative process is complete.
We have conceived of our good,
and now release this concept as a seed of thought. We achieve this
of completion by knowing that our work is done, and God’s work has
begun. It is necessary that we shift
our attention at this point, getting on with our Life and living.
This is the point at which we "move our feet".
"So it is, and so I let it be".
