“Worry stems from a degree of fear, which is difficult to overcome because it’s how most of us are conditioned to think.”
“Conditioned to think?” Carlos said, standing up walking over to the C.D. player and lowering the volume. “I don’t know how you were taught to think,” he said walking back over to his chair, “but I’m not conditioned or trained to think any type of way.” Shaking his head, sitting back down.
“How did we go from praying and the spirits to how we think?” Jose asked.
“Because thinking is praying,” Paradise answered.
“Exactly!” I said, “You’re expressing your thoughts, activating the laws to attract the effect.”
“So you’re saying God has nothing to do with it?” Jose asked.
“God has everything to do with it,” I said, “because, it’s God’s law, but you’re not praying to God, you’re using the laws already established. This is why it’s as if some people’s prayers are answered and others aren’t. Some people know how to direct the energy using the law, depending on God’s law to bring about the result, some do it very consciously and have a strong faith and some do it unconsciously without understanding the process.”
“So what do you believe? In these laws or God and the spirits?” Jose asked, pulling his chair closer.
All eyes fell on me.
I paused again for a moment, “I understand that there is an all-wise, intelligent, all-knowing powerful Creator,” I began, “Call it God, spirits, the Universe or call it our higher power, it’s all part of us and we are part of it.”
“Now you’re part of God?” Paradise asked.
“Yes,” I said looking him dead in the face, “and so are you. Many of the mainstream religions teach that we’re separated from God or the source of all life but that’s not true.”
“How do you know?” Carlos challenged.
“Because it doesn’t make sense.”
“Because a God of love wouldn’t want to be separated from her greatest creation.”
