The Golden Key

What if you could find the answer to having a happy and harmonious life? What about a life without worry and fear? What if it was something really simple? Would you do it? What if it was simple but not easy, in fact it was a real challenge?

Years ago, New Thought author, Emmet Fox, wrote a simple essay entitled the Golden Key. It was the key to harmony and happiness and although it is very simple, it is anything but easy. The key is to think about God rather than any problem, challenge, difficulty, fear, etc. that you might be experiencing.

It works because when we concentrate on something, we bring that thing to us. The more we think something, the more we create it in our life. So the more we fear getting a certain illness, the more likely it is that we will get it. The more we think about a person who is upset with us, the more that person will cause us disharmony.

Thinking instead of God produces amazing results. Many years ago, I was living in Miami and had my insurance agency. One day a man came into my office angry about the way our company handled his claim. He sat across from me screaming and yelling at me in a very unpleasant manner.

As he was yelling, I began to see the God within him instead of an angry man. As I continued to see Spirit within him, all of a sudden he stopped screaming and began apologizing to me for his behavior especially since it wasn’t myself he was angry at.

This week give it a try. When something bothers you or challenges you, find a way, an affirmation, a visualization, breathing, etc. to turn your thoughts away from the problem and onto Spirit, the solution

What do you have to lose other than your misery?

Quote of the Week

“All that you have to do is this: Stop thinking about the difficulty, whatever it is, and think about God instead. This is the complete rule, and if only you will do this, the trouble, whatever it is, will presently disappear.” Emmet Fox
