By Louise L. Hay (excerpt from You Can Heal Your Life)
Begin to recognize prosperity everywhere and rejoice in it. Reverend Ike, the well- known evangelist in New York City, remembers as a poor preacher he used to walk by good restaurants and homes and automobiles and clothing establishments and say out loud, “That’s for me, that’s for me.“
Allow fancy homes and banks and fine stores and showrooms of all sorts – and yachts – to give you pleasure. Recognize that all this is part of your abundance, and you are increasing your consciousness to partake of these things if you desire. If you see well-dressed people, think, “Isn’t it wonderful that they have so much abundance? There is plenty for all of us.“
We don’t want somebody else’s good. We want to have our own good.
And yet we do not own anything. We only use possessions for a period of time until they pass on to someone else. Sometimes a possession may stay in a family for a few generations, but eventually it will pass on. There is a natural rhythm and flow of life. Things come, and things go. I believe that when something goes, it is only to make room for something new and better.
