Increase is what all men and all women are seeking; it is the urge of the Formless Intelligence within them, seeking fuller expression. Original Substance wants to live all that is possible in you, and wants you to have all that you can or will use for the living of the most abundant life.” –Wallace Wattles
So going forward I will be looking at the many aspects of Increase or Expansion and I say many because Expansion is the energy that informs everything we do. Fear, doubt and negative belief stifles that expansion and resists the urge of Life that is at the very core of our being.
Wallace definitely brought me to a new understanding and if you can’t tell, I am excited about it and excited to share it with you.
So for a minute I want to talk about intuition where expansion is concerned.
When I am becoming aware of a new concept it is like watching puzzle pieces fall into place. I may read something that really hits me. It definitely resonates but it is kind of hanging there, not a complete concept. Then in reading something else later on the same thing happen. Then I am shown how to connect the dots to reveal a bigger picture and a deeper, more personal meaning. This happens a lot. Intuition says “pay attention” so I underline it and later on find out why as I watch it develop into something that expands me.
Florence Scovel Shinn says:
“God is the Supreme Intelligence devoted to supplying man’s need; the explanation is, that man is God in action. 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. Most people are filled with apprehension and dread, when there is nothing to cling to on the external.”
Trusting the Creative Principle is following your intuition.
Florence goes on to say:
“Intuition is a Spiritual faculty above the intellect. It is “the still small voice” commonly called a hunch, which says “this is the way, walk ye in it.” I refer to intuition very often for it is the most important part of Spiritual development. It is Divine Guidance. It is the God within. WITH IT NOTHING IS UNIMPORTANT.”
I love that last line. WITH IT NOTHING IS UNIMPORTANT. I have this picture in my head that each of us is a God satellite out here in time and space. We are a physical form that houses all possibility and not only do we contain the Creative Principle but all around us is the Creative Principle as well and what we see in our physical reality is the Creative Principle hardened into fact by our belief. Right now ALL information is available to us but we have to be tuned into the right frequency to actually receive the information we need for our progress. The information that is specific to us. The right frequency is attention in the present moment. That’s what makes us available to receive, to notice and make course corrections as they are called for or just get information, and store it for a later time.
So here we are these God satellites with everything working in our favor if we can let go of reason and personal will and follow our intuition. WITH IT NOTHING IS UNIMPORTANT and it will direct you from deciding what to wear to your next career move.
The purpose of Creative Principle or LIFE is expansion and we are constantly being given the means by which to expand. If we are tuned in.
