Heretofore we have sought knowledge and help from outside sources, not knowing that the source of all knowledge, the very Spirit of truth, is lying latent within each one of us, waiting to be called on to teach us the truth about all things—most marvelous of teachers, and everywhere present, without money or price! –Emilie Cady
It may seem backward to think that when we have an external need we would be told to turn within for an answer to the problem. It would seem to make more sense to follow old patterns and busy ourselves seeking external solutions.
Life is much more than a perpetual process of finding temporal solutions to temporal problems. We are spiritual beings who have, for reasons known to us at the very deepest level, stepped into this earthly experience to accomplish some important work. We brought with us our connection to our eternal source of guidance and supply, a resource of wisdom and guidance that will always lead us to the right answers when we need them.
Jesus said, “Ask, and it will be given you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. For every one who asks receives, and he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks it will be opened” (Matthew 7:7-8). This is a pretty straight forward promise from one who understood better than most the spiritual dynamics of divine guidance.
If you find yourself in a place in your life where you do not know what to do, set aside time to go apart from the clamor of the world and turn within to that place of inner stillness and assurance that all is well, that the answers you need are now coming forth to fill your external needs in ways that work for your highest good and the highest good of all concerned. You may wish to use a simple affirmation that Cady herself found helpful in her own time of need: It is done: God is now manifested as my supply.
