WISHES

THREE WISHES

wish is a hope or desire for a thing or person to appear, for an immaterial thing to become real, for a condition to change, or any of an unlimited number of desires for change.  Traditionally, a wish is request from a supernatural being to cause something to be changed or created.  A template for fictional wishes could be The Book of One Thousand and One Nights, specifically the tale of Aladdin, although in the tale of Aladdin the actual wishes were only part of the tale.  Classically the wish provider is often a spirit, Genie or similar entity, bound or constrained within an object, like Aladdin’s oil lamp for example.

In the case of the Magic Lamp, there are several steps to getting your wish fulfilled:

  1. The first step in wishing is to assume or discover that a “supernatural being” exists!
  2. The next step is to assume that the alleged Supernatural Being is LISTENING to your request.
  3. Then, the magical Supernatural Being must have the ABILITY to make the wish become reality.
  4. Finally, the Supernatural Being must actually WANT to make your wish happen for you.

What are the odds that all of these circumstances will ever exist?  You do the math….

However, there are other forms of “wishing” or asking for something from a supernatural being.  The most common kind of “wishing” is prayer.  Another kind of wishing is daydreaming, or imagination or meditation.  Another kind of wishing is figuring out how to make something happen and working hard, and persisting long enough to MAKE it happen!  

This is almost always the most reliable way of making a wish come true.  And, YOU are a Supernatural Being that can make YOUR wishes come true.

THE ICY FLAME

Republished by Blog Post Promoter

Before Being was the Icy Flame.
You and I and All.
The Flame conceives.
And From that Eternal Fire comes Thought:
Joy and Love and Pain.
We pretend. We betray.
We deceive Our Selves with play.
We invade the dark relentless void with incandescent Light.
Like candles in a forge we play a game that melts the soul.
Each victory drowns the flame within Our Selves.
And yet The Flame still lingers in us all.
We flicker faintly far from The Hearth of Home.
Burn brightly Lonely spark.
Remember You and I and All:
We are the Icy Fire.

THE ORIGINAL AUTHOR OF “THE LAW OF ATTRACTION”

william-walker-atkinson“The great men – the strong men – care nothing for the flock, which so obediently trots along after them. They derive no satisfaction from this thing, which pleases only inferior minds, and gratifies only petty natures and ambitions. The big men — the great spirits of all ages — have derived more satisfaction from that inward conviction of strength and ability which they felt unfolding into activity within themselves, than in the plaudits of the mob, or in the servility of those Imitative creatures who sought to follow in their footsteps.

And, this thing called Individuality is a real thing. Inherent in each of us, and which may be developed and brought into activity in each one of us if we go about it right. Individuality is the expression of our Self – that Self which is what we mean when we say “I”.

Each of us is an Individual – an “I” – differing from every other “I” in the universe, so far as personal expression is concerned. And in the measure that we express and unfold the powers of that “I”, so are we great, strong and successful. We all “have it in us” – it depends upon us to get it out into Expression. And, this Individual Expression lies at the heart of the “Secret of Success”.” 

~ Excerpt from the book “Secret of Success” by William Walker Atkinson, 1906

William Walker Atkinson (December 5, 1862 – November 22, 1932) was an attorney, merchant, publisher, and author, as well as an occultist and an American pioneer of the New Thought movement. He is also known to have been the author of the pseudonymous works attributed to Theron Q. Dumont and Yogi Ramacharaka. Due in part to Atkinson’s intense personal secrecy and extensive use of pseudonyms, he is now largely forgotten, despite having written more than 100 books in the last 30 years of his life. His works have remained in print more or less continuously since 1900.
