THE PENSACOLA JOURNAL SUNDAY MORNING, JULY 6, 1919. 15 Tl THE LAW OF PROSPERITY The following beautiful and interest If article is published without duo iftdit to the unknown author. It has t'm to the editor of this page unsigned till' in publish 1 becuuse of the ia.ri beauty f thought expressed.) I We find that there are certain laws which vern all things and conditions. There tAe laws of music, mathematics, I faith, happiness, etc., and there must therefore, be some law governing pros Parity. And if we are to demonstrate riosperity we must first learn to know the law, that we may work in accordance Ith It. Jesua Christ was the greatest teacher and demonstrator of this law of prosper ity. He toW his followers that they were to seek first the kingdom of heaven, ot some place In some other planet away oft somewhere, but within themselves; that they had within them all resources, sr.d they must unfold their capacity. This was the first step in demonstrating pros perity, the recognition and seeking the kingdom of heaven within, as the source ef all. and upon which we may draw for whatever we may desire. Then he trld ' il'ustrate inl 'i:monstrate the avv tf them by multiplying the loaves and fishes, and by turning the water into ine better wine than they had had be fore and by finding the gold ln the fteh a fnouth, and by the great draught of fishes when they cast their net on the fiRht side. And so we manifest in pro portion as we become more and more iplritual and put Into practice this law. Jesus said, "I.ay up for yourselves reasures in heaven, where moth and rust lo not Corrupt." Yes. but where In Leaven? Jesus jaid. "The kingdom of heaven is within you. So we are to open lip our own higher or spiritual conscious ness, knowing that therein is our treas ure or supply. Christ again is our ex ample In this, for in II Corinthians 6:10. we man read: "As poor, yet making many rich; as having noshing, yet pos sessing all things;" and again in 11 Corinr thians 8:9: "That though he was rich, er for your sakes he became poor, that Jt through his poverty might become flch.V v I You ask, then, why we who know this law do not demonstrate for ourselves large fortunes,,- etc. fty way of illustra tion I woud" call your attention to the 'ctric light plant. There must be some tie at the power house In touch with the machinery which produces the electricity, so that he may turn on the current that we may receiye the light. So we stand In touch with the power house and turn in .the current that you may receive light or benefit. What We want is spiritual enlighten ment and wisdom. All ability Is based on spiritual understanding. Prentice Mulford said. "The man of ttuccess is the man possessed of the greatest spiritual understanding, and eery great fortune comes of superior and truly spiritual power." Do you want the wealthy to divide with you? Jesus called those "foolish virgins' who wanted others to divide. He taught that you must have oil In your own lamps. Know that you have an abundant supply within yourself. Wanting the rich to divide is simply ccvetousness. It is the thing that wfll keep you poor. Several years ago. when I was in Edin borough. 1 wandered into one of the churches. I have no idea that the cler gyman was a student of New Thought, but he was a Greek scholar. He gave out his text, "Let your conversation be without covetousne-ss; and be content with such things as ye have. (Heb. 13:15). Do you think he told these good Scotch people to be content with their littfe cottages? Oh. no; not a bit of it. Ho took his Greek Testament and translated direct from the Greek, and it read, "Be ye conscious that we have con tained within yourselves all capacity." Then he went on to explain that by oveting the possessions of others even if we should obtain them It would be to oui detriment, as it would have the effect which would be produced on a rung, tender tree if you should load it down by hanging on to it fruit whlcn had grown from the life within. We shculd thus, to say the least, interfere with the growth and fruitfulness of the tree. And thus we may deaden the ability and power within ourselves whicb produce success and prosperity. This Is wLat Is meant when we say that we must be conscious that we can create from within ourselves the things which we need; that we do not need the things from the outside, but they come from within. Success and prosperity come not to you but through you. We want then, like Solomon, to pray for wisdom. We must use our own minds. When you get into the fullness cf spiritual consciousness you cannot ' get away from prosperity. Read Deute ronomy 28:11-15. Prosperity is a mani festation of superior ability, and ability comes from God, and Divine Mind. Cotf etousness does not bring forth prosperity. When we are awakened - to spiritual consciousness we realize that we want tu peek earnestly the best gifts and when the spiritual side of our being has begun to .come forth, we must go from glory to glory, from prosperity to prosperity. Ask more. "Hitherto you have asked nothing. Ask and ye shall receive that your Joy may be full." If we, as healers of tne sick must work to get rid of the sin or shortcoming, the "missing of the mark" back of the ill ness, so in the study of the law of pros perity we must work to get rhl of th- sin back of poverty. In demonstrating we must first realize there are both constructive and destruc tive thoughts, and that negative thoughts have their influence as well as harmon ious thoughts. Under the heading f "destructive thoughts" comes criticism. I We cannot criticise the methods of ti e wealthy. Just leave them to God and bless them. Bvery time you say "graft ers" or criticise the rich, you set ln mo tion that law which locks the door to ytur own prosperity. Neither can we demonstrate wealth by seeing poverty. We must see only and treat only fjr abundance everywhere.

How to make a little meat go a long way is the daily problem in the average family. Here are suggested methods of extend ing the meat flavor and using the less eypensive cuts. Meat Gems To 2 cupfuls of ground meat, either cooked or fresh, add 1 cupful of coarse crumbs. 1 medium siaed onion, chopped fine, 1 tablespoonful of chopped parsley, and Vt cupful of grated cheese. Mix well and moisten witjn 1 beaten egg and a little tomato catsup. Grease gem pans and mold the meat mixture Into them. Bake in hot oven until brown. Serve with tomato sauce. Spring Stew Cut 2 pound of lamb into small chunks and stew gently for 1 hour in a kettle with 2 cupfuls of canned or fresh tomato pulp. 1 cupful of diced carrots. 2 onions sliced. 2 cloves and 1 tcaspoonful of mixed and powdered herbs. Season with salt and pepper and add ercugh water to cover. After stewing the mixture for one hour add pound rice and cook until tender. Economy Roast Buv 2 Bounds of good Macaroni with Round Steak Break j package of macaroni into half-inch lengths and add 1 tablespoonful of melted butter and water to cover. Boil until tender and drain. Put through a food chopper and 1 pound of round steak and 2 large onions. Put the cooked macaroni into a greased baking dish, cover with the meat and onion, add salt, pepper, 4 cupful of grated cheese, 2 cupful to matoes, and cover all with 1 cupful of bread crumbs. Dot with bits of butter and bake 1 hour. - RE. ENTER A HOLD ALL K or iK What do you keep in the old medicine Chest in the bathroom? And HOW no you keep whatever you keep? In bottles, mostly, you say? Tes, one would hope so. But are they labeled. and are they uniform? With very lltUa trouble a supply of square, glass-stoppered bottles, of one. two or perhaps three sizes, dependlrj upon the varying amounts of articles you wish to keep, can be brought together. With still less trouble, uniform labels, plainly marked with indelible ink print ing or typed, with the name of the liqfuid contained in each bottle, can be pasted on the bottles. Arranged in order of size on one shelf, or two. acording to the number of bottles necessary, all liquids, whether dangerovis or harmless, are safely disposed of. Then there is room aplenty on the re maining shelves for well, to take a long breath for dental floss, tooth paste and tooth powder, and for tooth brush cases; for toilet creams, shaving cream and shaving brush; surgical guaae. cojrt plaster, adhesive tape, and an eye-cup. The kindest thought for the occasional gruest is a shelf set aside from the fam ily use. and daintily fitted with a half dozen or more tiny cakes of soap, a Jar of powder puffs made of cotton balls tied with narrow ribbon, a bottle of toilet water, hand lotion, an orangewood stick and court plaster.
