A Rich Mentality and Divine Prosperity

A science of the mind secret to spiritual riches as revealed in the 1911 new thought book '' by Annie Rix Militz.

Lay up for yourselves treasures iu heaven. — Matt, 6:20,

A good man out of the good treasure of the heart bringeth forth good things. — Matt. 12:35.

They shall prosper that love thee. — Ps. 122:6.

Then shalt thou prosper if thou takest heed to fulfill the statutes and judgments. — 1 Chron. 22:13.

Why transgress ye the commandments of the Lord that ye cannot prosper? because ye have forsaken the Lord he hath also forsaken you. — 2 Chron. 24:20.

Acquaint now thyself with him and be at peace: thereby shall good come unto thee. Eeceive I pray thee the law from his mouth and lay up his words in thine heart. If thou return to the Almighty thou shalt be built up . . . Then shalt thou lay up gold as dust and the gold of Ophir as the stones of the brooks. Yea, the Almighty shall be thy defense and thou shalt have plenty of silver. — Job 22:21 to 25.

Riches are primarily a state of mind and not a matter of accumulation of money or things. Having a rich mind will necessarily be represented by plenty of the world's goods, either in possession, or at command; but to have millions, and to lack the fertility of mind to place them, is to be like the mule that bears rich ore on his back out of the mine — he knows only the burden of it and none of the richness.

Men and women of assured income, who have not known the interior wealth, have led miserable lives of fear, lest thieves should rob them of everything, and some have gone insane with the dread of poverty, and spent the last days of their earthly existence in hourly expect-ation of being sent to the poor house because of their indi- gency. Paupers in mind, they cannot recognize riches when they stare them in the face.

Therefore the wisdom of the great Philosopher of Life: Seek first to be rich towards God and let the earthly riches follow. For then is the problem taken hold of at the right end, at its source, and one escapes the folly of so many poor ones who have put the cart before the horse, seeking riches first and the spiritual life last.

Everyone who comes into -the world has a rich aura, the gift of his heavenly Father — it is his "living" from the Source of all wealth. Most of us seem to have been prod- igal sons, letting our rich consciousness be frittered away by the delusions of sense, until we find ourselves bound to mortality, and far from happiness, heaven, our home. But we know that even then, if we only remember and "come to ourselves," we can return to the rich conscious- ness by keeping our face steadily towards our Father's house, that is, "seeking first the kingdom of God and his righteousness."

The rich aura that surrounds and fills each of us, is the reflection of the Divine Mind, and it contains all the elements of every expression of richness upon the face of the whole earth. Its thoughts of goodness are the reality of gold; its consciousness of freedom lies back of the silver; its purity is the substance of the diamond and all its virtues are portrayed in the gems of the earth. Its life fructifies the very soil, its beauty and grace determine the forms of fruit and flower. Its culture pictures forth in the arts of man, according to what development man has given himself towards that Rich Mentality.

As long as man looks outside himself for all the causes of his fortune or misfortune, he does not find this law of thought and feeling, by which he may be pros- pered. In man's attitude towards this Rich Mentality, which is in truth his Divine Mind, lies the explanation of many an unusual experience in his life.
