Welcome to Day 12 of the Abundance Challenge!

The Law of Intention and Desire

For this entire week, the focus is on 7 very powerful laws that Deepak Chopra wrote about in his best-selling book, The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success. The book was a best seller, timeless and as true today, as when it was published in the early 90s.

The Law for Today’s lesson is the Law of Intent and Desire. The centering though that Chopra provides for this lesson is:

My Actions and Desires are Supported by Cosmic Intelligence

Do we believe our actions and desires are supported by cosmic intelligence? Of course not. Most of us are never taught to believe in Cosmic intelligence, and in fact us, 3D works very hard to ensure that we don’t even have any idea that cosmic intelligence even exists! Much less that we are connected to it.

Meditation for Today — Om Ritam Namah

This mediation is absolutely my favorite in the Chopra abundance series! In this particular mediation, Chopra takes us to the beach ( you can hear, the warm breeze, even. It is so very peaceful. It is truly a delightful experience. And, while we are on that beach, he invites us to write on a scroll our deepest and heartfelt intentions and desires, and to release them into a vast ocean of possibilities (an infinite field of consciousness) and open yourself up to that pure and diving source energy. Allow it to just flow through you!

Centering Thought — I place my intention into the vast ocean of all possibilities and allow the universe to work through me.

Mantra — Om Ritam Namah — My actions and desires are supported by cosmic intelligence

As we move on to the mediation, remember you’re what you need to do to get the most out of it. Listen to the mantra, pay attention to the content of the mantra:

Mantra — Om Ritam Namah — My actions and desires are supported by cosmic intelligence

As you consider the mantra, imagine an infinite source of love surrounding you as you have done for the past mediations, also imagine that beautiful, powerful love source, compassionate and comforting as it is, also being active and intelligent as well. Imagine the world as it really is! A world that is beautiful and clean and of infinite value, full of happiness and hope. This world will bring all kinds of opportunities directly to you, with very little effort on your part. This world is made up of only divine and cosmic intelligence. You could not possibly imagine such a world from a limited ego perspective. (that is why, above all else you want to see). But connect to that other you. The authentic, abundant, and unlimited you (your higher self) that is connected to all that there is.

Above all else you want to see your actions and desires being supported by the infinite and cosmic intelligence that is the only reality.

3D Distortion of the Law

3D programming has convinced us that it’s a cruel world, so much so that many of us don’t even believe in cosmic intelligence. What is cosmic intelligence?

Om Ritam Namah is a mantra that is actually very difficult to translate, but ritam means something along the lines of truth, openness, receptivity, and awareness to “knowledge of reality.”

Namah (and notice that is included in every mantra) refers to one’s ability to surrender the ego-mind to the universal cosmic intelligence in order to receive a better understanding of one’s true spiritual self and one’s connection to all that is.

How 3D distorts this law, is that it insists that nothing is connected, the ego is all that there is, and everyone is a small, isolated, fearful and limited self. 3D runs this illusion extraordinarily convincingly. Pages upon pages of the text and the lessons of A Course in Miracles are dedicated to breaking down this particular 3D distortion.

This is a very simple course, perhaps you do not feel you need a course that teaches you only reality is true. (But as long as you are led by the ego), you do not know the meaning of anything that you perceive. What you will be looking at (when you examine the ego thought system) is the source of fear. You are beginning to learn that fear is not real. The ego’s s goal is quite explicitly ego autonomy; and therefore, its purpose is to be separate.

The ego attacks everything it perceives, breaking it into small disconnected parts, without meaning. The ego will always substitute chaos for meaning. Please recognize that everything of the ego is based in fear and the illusion of separation. — ACIM, Chapter 11, VII

One of the main tenants of A Course in Miracles, is that the world that we think we see, is in fact an illusion. Nothing more than a dream.

Sit quietly and look upon the world you see, and tell yourself “the real world is not like this. It has no buildings and there are no streets where people walk alone and separate. There are no stores where people buy an endless list of things they do not need. It is not lit with artificial light, and night comes not upon it. There is no day that brightens and grows dim. There is no loss.

You do not really want the world you see, for it has disappointed you since time began. The homes you built have never sheltered you? The roads you made have led you nowhere, and no city that you built has withstood the crumbling assault of time. Everything you made has the mark of death on it. It is old and tired and ready to return to dust, as soon as you made it This aching tired world doesn’t have the power to touch the real living word at all. You could not give it that power. You need to find the road that leads the real one. The real world has the power to touch you. The real world is love and love always answers. All you need to do- to exit this strange world you made but do not want- is a willingness to learn that the world you made is false. — ACIM, Chapter 13, VII

Both A Course in Miracles, and the ancient Sanskrit mantras are conveying the same mantra. There is an ultimate reality, and it is entirely based in love, and not fear.

You are connected to this ultimate reality, as am I.

The task here, is (always) to train our minds to see through this horrific 3D reality. We have to consistently embrace the idea, that the illusory 3D reality can be broken down. It takes consistent mental and spiritual work, to see through the illusion, as Einstein so eloquently stated:

Reality is an illusion, albeit a persistent one.

With focused intent and a desire to do so, we can abandon this horrific 3D reality, and enter into a miraculous fifth dimensional experience, which is our birthright.

The Spiritual Truth Behind the Law

Another one of my favorite lessons in A Course in Miracles is this:

Lesson 27: Above all else I want to see

In this lesson the course goes on to say,

You see a lot of separate things about you, which really means you are not seeing at all. But when you say, “Above all else I want to see differently” you are committing yourself to truly seeing. If you would look (upon the world) with a completely open mind you would see something beautiful and clean and of infinite value, full of happiness and hope. Under all of your twisted idea about what the world is, you would see its real purpose, that it shares with all the universe.

The best gift that any of us could receive is this gift of sight, that would allow us to see a beautiful, clean world full of happiness and hope and infinite value. Above all else, I want to see that world. Indeed, that is a world where all actions are supported by cosmic intelligence. Lessons 29 through 35 all encourage seeing the world for what it is.

Lesson 29: God is in everything I see.

Lesson 30: God is in everything I see because God is in my mind.

Lesson 31: I am not a victim of the world I see.

Lesson 32: I have invented the world I see

Lesson 33: There is another way of looking at the world

Lesson 34: I could see peace instead of this.

Lesson 35: My mind is a part of God’s I am very holy.

Remember! You will receive miracles because of what God is.
