Haanel 20-20: “We can live more abundantly every time we breathe, if we consciously breathe
with that intention. The IF is a very important condition in this case, as the
intention governs the attention, and without the attention you can secure only the
results which every one else secures. That is, a supply equal to the demand.”
Focusing on my breathing during the sit this week has taken on a different meaning.
In Haanel 20-18: The Silence is Necessary, the senses must be stilled, the muscles relaxed, repose cultivated.
Dad had an unexpected surgery this week, then a lung collapsed. Normally people fret and worry and wonder what to do. I sat. I was still. I was silent. I breathed=because I could. When dad was struggling to breathe, I did more. I prayed more. I breathed more. I was quiet more. I relaxed more. It was much easier than fretting.
Psalm 55:22 says, “Cast your cares on the Lord
and he will sustain you;
he will never let
the righteous be shaken.”
It’s hard to cast. But it must be done. When we show our faith, God shows up and answers prayer. There was nothing I could do from afar. Breathe, be still, pray. And healing is coming. Doctor’s and nurses have the wisdom and attentiveness that I asked for. No matter what happens, it is all in HIS hands. That is faith. That is not fear and worry.
