Current mood:fascinatedIncreasing Life
The Intelligent substance which is the All, and in All, and which lives in All and lives in you, is a consciously living substance. being a consciously living substance, It must have the nature and inherent desire of every living intelligence for increase of life. Every living thing must continually seek for the enlargement of its life, because life, in mere act of living, must increase itself.
A seed, dropped into the ground , springs into activity, and in the act living it produces a hundred more seeds; life, by living, multiplies itself. It is forever Becoming more; it must do so, if it continues to be at all.
Intelligence is under this same necessity for continous increase. Every thought we think makes it necessary for us to think another thought; consciousness is continually expanding. Every fact we learn leads us to the learning of another fact; knowledge is continually increasing. Every talent we cultivate brings to the mind the desire to cultivate another talent; we are subject to the urge of life, seeking expression, which ever drives us to know more, to do more, and to be more.
In order to know more, do more, and be more we must have more; we must have things to use, for we learn, and do, and become, only by using things. We must get rich so we can live more.
The desire for riches is simply the capacity for larger life seeking fulfillment; every desire is the effort of an unexpressed possibility to come into action. It is power seeking to manifest which cause desire. That which makes you want more money is the same that make the plant grow; it is life, seeking fuller expression.
The one substance desires to live more in you; hence it wants you to have all the things you can use.
It is the desire of God that you should get rich. He wants you to get rich because he can express himself better through you if you have plenty of things to use in giving him expression. He can live more in you if you have unlimited command of the means of life. The universe desires you to have everything you want to have. Nature is friendly to your plans. Everything is naturally for you. Make up your mind that this is true.
