Contemplate to Create

Here’s a favorite quote: “The law of floatation was not discovered by contemplating the sinking of things.” Think about this observation by the great mental-science practitioner of the early 20th century, Thomas Troward. In the early days of shipbuilding, ships were made of wood, and the reasoning was that wood floats in water and iron sinks. Yet today, ships all over the world are built of iron. As people began studying the law of floatation, it was discovered that anything could float if it’s lighter than the mass of liquid it displaces.

The key word in Troward’s quote is contemplating, or what you’re placing your thoughts on. You can’t discover the law of co-creation if you’re contemplating what’s missing. You can’t discover the power of awakening if you’re contemplating things that are still asleep. The secret to manifesting anything that you desire is your willingness and ability to realign yourself so that your inner world is in harmony with the power of intention. Every single modern advance that you see and take for granted was created by someone contemplating what they intended to manifest.

The way to establish a relationship with Spirit and access the power of this creating principle is to continuously contemplate yourself surrounded by the conditions you wish to produce. Dwell on the idea of a supreme infinite power producing the results that you desire. This power is the creative power of the universe.

The Wright brothers didn’t contemplate the staying on the ground of things. Alexander Graham Bell didn’t contemplate the noncommunication of things. Thomas Edison didn’t contemplate the darkness of things. In order to float an idea into your reality, you must be willing to do a somersault into the inconceivable and land on your feet, contemplating what you want instead of what you don’t have.

Thank you… it’s this kind of wisdom that has made each day of my life more and more enriched. Focusing on what i look to create as opposed to the opposite is just one of the many tools i have used to transform my life. Thank you Dr. Dyer.

Vivid visualization is creation in and of itself. whether it is good or not good. We must work toward maintaining control over our creative thoughts in order to seer our lives upon the perfect path.

Every time I see you or your photograph, I feel drawn to you, like we are very old, old friends.

Susan says:

I met a friend we are both female, not gay, have the deepest love-sounds sexual to describe but feels like God holds us -seriously its not physical, we write we are so within each other, her husband read it and now forbids her to see me-WHY can’t people know there is love beyond a sexual plane? we are one in a celestial way, I lost a friend HELP?

Randy says:

Love this.. You are the most inspiring teacher for me and my family.. Since using Japa, my life has changed beyond my wildest dreams. I have tried everything, and have finally found that using this meditation, will bring such deep peace and happiness.. God bless.

Donna says:

When I was going to school for my profession, I would get so caught up in day dreaming. While driving on the highway I would miss my exit LOL. Also when I first waiting for closing on my first house, I would go home from work and drive right to the house, pulling up in the drive way. Then proceed to go to my residents at the time. Namaste

Jennifer says:

Your books have always been a huge inspiration for me. I finished chemotherapy for Hodgkin’s Lymphoma in September. As someone who really relates to your teachings and is looking to deal with my diagnosis in the most productive way, I look forward to hearing you share more about your journey with cancer as well. Thank you.

Salim says:

Penny says:

I’ve just recently noticed there was a home page attached to your blog Dr. Dyer. Your book Sacred Self carried me so far…for so long…then I was lost. I’ve read a few of the articles and I’m getting familiar with some faces, names. So many questions…..I will focus on patience now.

Penny says:

I wonder about the true nature of a Miracle? Are they contagious and addictive? If so I desire to catch as many as I am allowed…..and blow them out into this universe…….so they will spread and heal in every possible dimension…. like wildfire.

Lousie says:

Thank you Wayne, I agree that sometimes the stormy waves seem too much to float this boat . This year has been particularly stormy but I realize I have to learn from all of this and your guidance and wisdom are so helpful. Blessings to you.

Dennis says:

A Course in Miracles says: “All sacrifice entails the loss of your ability to see relationships among events. And looked at separately they have no meaning.” Therefore, it must be crucial when desiring a thing – even from its end – to recognize and act on unfolding event’s relationships as meaningful to realizing the desire.

Naira says:

Sometimes I hang on to every word you say and those are the words that fill up my human gas tank.Sometimes words such as these don’t resonate because I have a less than easy time contemplating on the floating boat compared to the stormy waves. I’m sure glad life makes individals such as you available for unconditional guidance and example!

Janet Pfeiffer says:

The beauty of this principle is that when you focus on what you want to attract it flows effortlessly into your life. My life completely changed once I understood and practiced this.
Thank you, Wayne, for continuously and generously sharing your wisdom. You have been one of my greatest teachers. Blessings.
