Chester was in a meditative state as the Master softly spoke, "I'm now going to give you essential information. I am going to tell you how to manifest miracles in your life.
Listen as I tell you the secret of manifesting both physical and spiritual miracles. To manifest physical and spiritual miracles one must remember the words of Christ as he taught his disciples the lesson of faith. He taught them; 'Truly I tell you, whoever says to this mountain, Be lifted up and thrown into the sea! and does not doubt at all in his heart but believes that what he says will take place, it will be done for him. For this reason I am telling you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe, trust and be confident that it is granted you, and you will receive your request."
"Notice he did not tell his disciples they must pray to have the moutain thrown into the see but that they must have no-doubt. Just as they must have faith to throw the mountain into the sea, they must have faith to get answers to prayer."
Chester opened his eyes and lamented, "How do I achieve no doubt when I have doubt?"
The Master thought for a moment and then replied, "Let me give you an exercise that will help. Close your eyes and imagine you are standing on the top of a mountain before dawn when it is the darkest and not a glimmer of dawn shows in the east. Now ask yourself if you believe without doubt that the sun will rise in the east. As soon as you ask that question answer it in your mind and probe and perceive if there is any doubt in your mind that the sun will rise. The darkest night gives way to the bright morning sun and you can know that to be true. Remember and capture what non-doubt is like and then transfer it to whatever you ask for or need in prayer."
Chester opened his eyes and said, "I can tell it will take practice but I see what you mean."
The Master decided to teach Chester further. "Let me give you 4 steps, which if followed, will allow you to accomplish anything you want. This knowledge will allow you to perform miracles in your life.
First, before one can achieve anything one must know exactly what one wants to accomplish. The sharper in your mind you can visualize your goal the easier it is to achieve. The more vague and fuzzy it is in your mind the more vague and inprecise will be the fulfillment of your goal."
Second, one must have a strong desire to manifest your miracle, your goal, your reality. The less important it is to you the less energy will be available for you to manifest your reality. All reality begins as thought but it needs energy to become manifest. That energy is desire. It needs energy to be transformed from thought to reality. That energy is your desire. Athletes don't achieve olympic gold medals because they sorta wanted it. No, they desired it above all else and married that desire with the crystal clear vision of their goal.
Third, one must know that their miracle will manifest. This faith can be expressed another way. One must expect it. Another way to express it is that one must intend it. When you marry non-doubt, complete confidence and expectation that your desire will manifest itself, you cannot be denied."
Chester narrowed his eyes, "You said there were 4 steps."
The Master chuckled, "Yes in some cases there is a fourth step and that is, one must do whatever action is necessary to go with the desire, the vision and the expectation. For example, if one desires a spouse and has faith that the right spouse will enter into ones life. That one would still need to meet potential spouses, would they not? To find a job, if that was one's desire, one must look for a job!"
Chester smiled, "Vision, desire, expectation and proper action. Sounds like a four step program. But I'm curious. You mentioned both physical and spiritual miracles. Which is harder?"
The Master held up his index finger for emphasis, "Ahh, you hit at the heart of the matter. It is easier to move a mountain than change an evil heart to a heart of righteousness. Yet still all things are possible."
The Buddha taught his monks that, 'The mind is the forerunner of all actions. All deeds, good or bad, are led by mind, created by mind. If one speaks or acts with a corrupt mind, suffering follows, as a wheel follows the hoof of an ox pulling a cart. If one speaks or acts with a serene mind, happiness follows as surely as one's shadow follows one on a bright day.'
The Buddha taught the path to the miracle of happiness when he said, 'The wise man, by vigor, mindfullness, restraint and self control, creates for himself an island which no flood can submerge, no sorrow can cover. The person who reaches the sacred, the inexpressible, who has permeated his mind with it, who is in control of his senses will know neither sorrow nor fear'.
As you can see, Chester, whether one wants to move a mountain or change one's heart, it begins in the mind. There can be no doubt."
Chester sat and contemplated. The Master left him to his thoughts.
