Dr Joseph Murphy writes (All quotes are from How to use the Laws of Mind):
“The Bible teaches psychology and metaphysics, the laws of life and the way of the Infinite Spirit… The Bible is full of metaphors, similes and figures of speech.”
“All religions teach that God is our Father. All of us have a Common Progenitor, and we are all intimately related. The man who knows his Source and his oneness with the Father of All experiences good fortune in his life.”
“To experience good fortune, you go back to the realization that you are a son or daughter of the Infinite, that you are free to mold, fashion and shape your destiny irrespective of what other people say or do and regardless of conditions around you. Right thinking is the law of the day.”
“You are an offspring of Divinity, and you realize externals are not causative; they are an effect, not a cause. You are a causationist and you become what you contemplate and feel to be true. Your external world is an accurate and mathematical reflection of your habitual thinking, imagery and beliefs. In other words, you are literally belief expressed. Expect good fortune, harmony, health, peace, joy, and believe in the goodness of God in the land of the living.”
In other words you are not here to deny life but to dance with it.
