Abundance Is the Truth–The Law of Supply
Continuing with the Universal Laws series I introduced a few weeks ago, today I will share about the Law of Supply, as Raymond Holliwell, the author of "Working with the Law," explains it.
This law reminds us that anything we should ever need is already in existence. Nature is abundant, despite our mis-perceptions of lack. Our Creator has created the substance of any material or the energy of any thought we could ever need to meet any need we could have.
In fact, the Law states that we cannot have a need or desire without the means to fulfill it already in existence.
What kind of God would it be that would create a carrot to dangle in front of us without any means of reaching out and getting it? I don't believe we have a God that would be cruel in that way.
The law of expansion, or perpetual increase, is at play because God intended for man to continually strive for progress and growth. When one thing is reached, he will be compelled to set and reach for another goal.
"The advancing life is the…life God intended man to live," explains Holliwell. "Science and logic alike declare that the Universe is filled with the essential substance of every imaginable good that man can image, and that he is entitled to a full and everlasting supply of every and any good he may need or desire."
Supply is all around, though often a human mind has not yet perceived a need or perceived it strongly enough to seek out the means to attain it. Remember that saying, "Neccessity is the mother of invention." One often has to become uncomfortable enough to put the effort into finding comfort again through making a change. Complacency is the killer of innovation.
Often times we cannot see the supply that is available because we do not believe that it is possible (or that it is possible for us). I heard an interview years ago that Tony Robbins did with Wayne Dyer entitled "You'll see it when you believe it." This was when I was first introduced to the concept that our beliefs influence our perception. Instead of the idea that "I'll believe it when I see it," Dyer explained that until we can conceive of the possibility of a thing, we cannot see the supply of resources (people, ideas, materials) that will bring it into being.
"Ask, believing, and it is given" is a statement found in the Bible. If you ask the Universe for something yet are holding the vibration of disbelief that you can get it ("I'm not deserving enough, I'm not smart enough, I'm too old, I'm too sick, I don't have the time, I don't have what it takes, etc.), although it is already there waiting to "appear" to you, you will push it away. So limiting beliefs and fears block us from attracting to uswhat we want or of causing a "blindness" to seeing what is there waiting for us to take (e.g., not "seeing"opportunities presented or not taking action on them when they come).
Oil has been in the earth for thousands of years, electric energy has always been around us, the means to produce an automobile or an airplane or computers did not suddenly appear; they were already there, and it just took man's imagination of possibility or urgency of need to seek out the way to utilize or create them.
Forgetting, also, that God is the ultimate source of all our supply (not creatures, such as animals or plants or man) is what puts us in fear, as those things seem finite. (See my blog post about this.)
"The thing we dare not do is fret or worry about supply or about where our next dollar is coming from. Fretting and worry tend to limit the supply at hand. they tend to close off the outflow of substance…Instead of lifting us our of our limitation; instead of increasing our supply, they tend to drag us deeper into the throes of doubt and fear. Instead of expecting more to follow, we grow more tense and anxious, which increases our fear and brings us less and less.
Instead of tightening up in our thinking, we must relax and be more expanding. We must educate our minds to a larger state of thinking. When we can think and realize more abundance, we shall receive more abundantly." Vocation does not determine riches; there are poor engineers and rich farmers. It is the demands that we make of ourselves and our vocations that demand riches.
There is much more that Holliwell discusses in this Law (including why there are many examples of poverty in the world) than I have space to cover here, so I welcome questions, discussions and even "arguments" about the points made here about the Law of Supply and I will respond to all of them.
Interestingly, Holliwell goes on to assure us that we all have the ability to expand our minds to achieve what we desire, though the progress will be slower than if we work with a mentor who already has a full understanding, acceptance & successful use of the law. This is why you can make progress so much more exponential when you are working with a good coach who has mastered (or are further along the path of mastery), what you want to attain. Self-education is a slower and more arduous path.
The lesson of the second law is, lack is an illusion; abundance is the truth. All we need is already in existence and supplied by the Creator.
The next Law I will discuss in this series is the Law of Attraction.
Are you operating in alignment with the Law of Supply, or are you operating from fear of lack? How is this keeping you from attracting lots of ideal clients and making more money with less effort and more fun? If your results are not demonstrating an abundance of what you want, I can help you move from an abundance of struggle to an abundance of ease and plenty!
