Blessed vs. Wretched – Reflections on my Conversation with Filmmaker, Jon Miller “As a Man Thinketh”

  Blessed or Wretched? Reflections on “As a Man Thinketh” and My Conversation with Filmmaker, Jon Miller Wretched: Description of a person in a very unhappy or unfortunate state. Blessed: Endowed with divine protection and favor; bringing pleasure or relief as a welcome contrast to what one has previously experienced. I recently interviewed filmmaker Jon Miller, about his soon-to-be released film “As a Man Thinketh.” I am delighted to appear in this film along with Rev. Michael Bernard Beckwith, Edwene Gaines, Dr. Joe Vitale and other new thought leaders. Our conversation turned to an important spiritual idea: Happiness (or blessedness) cannot be acquired through material things. As a spiritual leader, I am pro-abundance, pro-wealth, pro-fun-and-pretty-things. However, my stance comes with...

Your “Wishes” Will Never Come True

By Maryann Patalano, New Thought Leader Yes, that’s right. The energy associated with wanting and wishing is lack. To want something is to declare that something is missing. To “want” or “wish” is to declare the absence of something now. The Universe responds creatively to the combination of our thoughts, beliefs and feelings.  When you are in a state of “want” – how do you feel?  I can bet you feel a strong sense of desperation, confusion and perhaps a helpless sense of struggle.  Often, a strong sense of disbelief accompanies the act of wanting or wishing. I encourage you to think about this deeply and you will discover that when you are in a state of wanting (or wishing) you...

You Can’t Fool the Universe

The Truth About Lying By Maryann Patalano, Licensed RScP Are you a truthful person?  Being truthful involves being truthful to yourself and others – in all ways.   People often find themselves surrounded by liars, and end up dealing with deceitful or spiteful situations.  And in many cases they have no idea how they got there.  However, there is a law in the universe that states that what you put out comes back to you.   This includes all thoughts, actions and beliefs you put out there about yourself. People often think being truthful is simply being honest externally.  For example, they are honest with their creditors, honest in their relationships, honest at work, honest with regards to local laws  -- essentially...

Acceptance: The Thimble vs. the Grand Canyon

Let’s take a look at what is meant by the word “acceptance” and see how it applies to our spiritual growth and endeavors to renew. The primary definition of acceptance is: 1. The action of consenting to receive or undertake something offered. 2. The secondary definition is “Favorable reception, approval or favor.” Both of these aspects of acceptance apply to the pathway of renewal. The first one, in new thought terms, the act of consenting to receive what is offered refers to the fact that ALL GOOD is offered to us by Spirit.  BUT WE MUST ACCEPT IT before we can renew our minds and our lives in ways that the TRUTH of Spirit offers.   If you believe the statement...

Avoid Becoming a Spiritual Doormat!

By Maryann Patalano, New Thought Leader, Licensed RScP   There is a mistaken belief among many in the spiritual community that to be “good,” “spiritual,” or “holy,” one must hold their hands together in steadfast prayer and accept all people into their lives.  However, such is not the case. Let me explain.   The definition of accept is: “the action of consenting to receive or undertake something offered; agreement with or belief in an idea, opinion, or explanation.” As such, do you believe that a spiritual person is required to consent to the threats, heartache or abuse that another offers them? Would you consider becoming involved in a compromising situation or an unfulfilling relationship – all in the name of acceptance? Should...
