I read in the newspaper this morning where a hypnotist had been charged with defrauding people. He had been charging them thousands of dollars for telling them how to become millionaire's with the promise of their money back if it didn't work out for them. He based his sales pitch on the idea that 'When you think what a millionaire thinks and when you do what a millionaire does ~ it produces similar results''
Would the same philosophy not work for those who believe that the "I" within them is God ~ the Immortal Eternal Creator of everything in the Universe? If we think AS the Father ~ and do our best to function AS the Father ~ might we not 'become' One with the Father? Might it help those who do ~ to attain God consciousness ~ (the awareness that man and God are ONE?) Of course it would! We cannot become what we don't believe ourselves to be ~ but we can become what we 'believe' ourselves to be ~ when we function as the 'person' we 'believe' ourselves to be! (When we function through FAITH ~ AS the Father!) Every one of us was created to 'be' and function AS the Father! He is both male and female (man and woman) ~ and 'He', is who and what we really are! (Thus "I" and my Father, are One!) If we only knew it ~ each of us is actually non other than God (the Father!) Every man and woman on Planet Earth is actually the Father individualized! Thus ~ to function AS the Father ~ is to function AS the Christ!
I believe with all my heart that it is as I have written, but I have been guilty of thinking that I don't quite qualify! (Because I have not walked As God ~ to the degree that Jesus did!) Not fully aware of the fact that I still function to a certain extent as the person my parents created when they named me. I ~ as Robert Clark ~ HAVE NO BEING! 'Robert Clark' does not exist in reality ~ but is only the illusion in which I have been guilty of failing to fully realize! God ~ is the I am that I am ~ the Life and the 'Spirit' ~ the consciousness within me and everyone else! " I am the first and I am the last, and beside me there is none else"(Isaiah chapter. 43-45).
So the key is to 'be' what we BELIEVE ourselves to be! When we believe that ONLY God is ~ and that God is the REAL 'you' and the REAL me! When we think As God and function AS God ~ through Faith ~ we WILL BECOME WHAT WE BELIEVE OURSELVES TO BE! We are ONE with the Creator of everything in the Universe. We are individualized manifestations of Him who is the Creator ~ of Him who is God ~ Of Him who is the Eternal I am ~ of Him who is the Immortal I am that I am! A 'branch, can be no less than what the Vine is that produced the branch! SO I CAN BE WHAT I BELIEVE MYSELF TO BE ~ BECAUSE I BELIEVE THAT I AM ALREADY THAT! Our goal must be ~ to 'be' who and what we BELIEVE ourselves to be!
