[MWM – 017] Stop Believing and Start Receiving

Stop Believing and Start Receiving
(Applying the principles of A Course In Miracles)You may have noticed in the world of “personal growth,” much 
attention is placed on changing our thoughts and beliefs; the 
idea being to get rid of the “bad ones” and install “good ones.”

There is, of course, good reason for this. Beliefs ARE powerful.
Whatever you believe will ultimately shape your experience on
some level.

Our minds hold the only real power to cause.

So, there is a place, then, in your spiritual maturation process
for realizing the power of your mind through the practice of
focused, intentional believing.

But it’s equally important to realize, at some point, that no
matter how powerful your believing mechanism is…

It is not powerful enough to “make” The Truth True.

The Truth is True whether you believe it or not.The Truth is Its own Power and It is the only True Power.

The Truth is True through Knowledge, not because of belief.

Your belief will never be powerful enough to MAKE The
Truth… or CHANGE The Truth … or OVERCOME The Truth in any
way.

Lies and illusions, on the other hand, do need your belief in 
order for them to be-come “true” for you. Your belief gives lies
and illusions the reality they have for you.

This doesn’t mean, however, that everything you believe is a
lie. It does mean that believing makes it impossible to
differentiate between what is true or false in your mind.

Your beliefs are founded on perceptions, which come from your
limited personal perspective. Therefore, most of what you
believe is often inaccurate at best or just flat out false.

For this reason…

It is better to RECEIVE THE TRUTH than believe it. 
 
You will KNOW THE TRUTH when you ALLOW THE TRUTH to
come to you. You don’t have to believe it to make it so. You
just have to be willing to receive it.

You may resist being open and receptive for fear of receiving a
lie, but if you’re just receiving and not engaging in believing, a
lie cannot harm you. Without your belief, it will simply fall away.

The truth, on the other hand, will naturally stick. 

Believing is the mechanism we invented to give illusions reality.
We cannot use this same mechanism to separate the false from
the true.

But because Receiving is given to us by Source to know the
truth, it naturally separates truth from illusion and disappears
illusions by rendering them false.

We must Relinquish to Receive. 

In order to receive truth from Source, we have to relinquish 
what we currently believe — the thoughts, judgments and 
interpretations we think we are “RIGHT” about…

And then invite Source to show us The Truth in whatever 
situation, experience or circumstance we happen to be in. 

You will know when the dawning of Truth has occurred in your
mind because it comes with a sense of peace, joy and certainty
of “knowing” that is unique and undeniable. 

So let’s practice receiving The Truth by declaring this week
RECEPTIVITY WEEK!

This whole week we get to commit to using our body’s eyes
and ears to receive the people, places and things around us
without judgment.

In place of judgment you will bring the question, “what is the 
truth in this?” 

Then, allow yourself to be filled with the Knowledge of Spirit.

You may be truly astonished by what you see next. 

That’s it for now.

And remember, keep surfing the Vortex,
– Mark
