"We're living it up, when we're giving it up!"
For unto every one that hath shall be given, and he shall have abundance: but from him that hath not shall be taken away even that which he hath (Matthew 25:29).
Your experience is the expression (pressing out) of your state of mind or consciousness, at any time. When your consciousness is high, everything goes well. When your consciousness is low or limited, everything goes wrong.
When trouble comes the usual thing is to meet it with fear, anger, disappointment, self-pity, or brutal will power. This naturally lowers the consciousness a good deal more, and things get still worse. From him that hath not (much) harmony, shall be taken away even that which he hath.
Harmony and joy naturally raise your consciousness and your faith in God still higher, and so things improve further. Unto everyone that hath shall be given and he shall have abundance. This is a simple statement of natural law. –Emmet Fox, Around the Year, Nov. 23rd
It comes as a surprise to many of us that we do not know how to handle good fortune. When unusual opportunities or prosperity comes our way, we find ourselves reacting inappropriately. Instead of being excited and happy, we feel upset.
Fear is often the culprit when we have such unexpected feelings. We’re afraid we won’t be able to “live up to” our good fortune. We’re afraid it will vanish as quickly as it came, and we’re apprehensive about the changes that might be in store for us. Our most troubling and irrational fear, however, is that somehow a huge mistake has been made. We feel, deep down, that we don’t deserve our windfall.
For some of us, clearly, good fortune can be as difficult to accept as adversity. But that doesn’t mean we can’t turn things around if we give ourselves a chance.
First, we can try to put our inappropriate feelings on hold. That way we can better see them for what they are- self-centered fear, rooted in old ideas. Instead of reacting quickly and self-destructively, we can take time to learn to accept our good fortune. Then, rather than focusing on our imagined unworthiness, we can try to become grateful for our bonanza and see it for the gift it is.
THOUGHT FOR TODAY: You deserve whatever good comes your way today.
–From A New Day, November 19
Outer steps will come easily. Of course, I do not mean to imply through all these people's experiences that you simply entertain and radiate the mental equivalent of the good desired, and then do nothing more. Often you will have to take definite external steps as well. But you will discover that, by working out the mental concept of the desired good first, the outer steps will then unfold easily-almost automatically at times-without strained effort on your part. The more you turn your mind in rich directions, the less you seem to have to exert undo human effort to produce results. Work you will, but it will be work as satisfying self-expression rather then work just to survive. Your rich mind power and radiations seem to have a way of going forth and producing right opportunities, events and circumstances for prosperity and success, so that you almost seem to walk into them without conscious effort. –From The Dynamic Laws of Prosperity by Catherine Ponder
They that seek the Lord shall not want any good thing. - Psalm 34:10
Today I expect every good thing to come to me. Everything that is worthy of the soul, I anticipate. Everything that belongs to the Spirit, I accept. Everything that partakes of the nature of the Divine Reality, I claim as my own. Today, I identify myself with abundance and success. I know that my destiny is Divine, that my destination is certain, that the Kingdom of Heaven is at hand. I know that this kingdom contains everything that is necessary to my well-being. In gratitude and with joy, I receive this Kingdom into myself. –Ernest Holmes, 365 Science of Mind, Nov. 20

GOD IS MY ALL. I AM GRATEFUL AND ABUNDANTLY BLESSED.
My appreciation for these blessings grows when I take time to give thanks for all that I have and will receive. Prosperity comes to me in many forms—family, friends, joy, health, and so much more. While the contents of a wallet or purse may be a reflection of finances, my true prosperity comes from Spirit.
If I should have a financial concern, I turn within and give thanks in advance that Spirit is opening the way to new and creative avenues for my finances to flow. Today and every day I affirm: I am abundantly blessed.
I will heal them and reveal to them abundance of prosperity and security.—Jeremiah 33:6

I just listened to last week's episode, the energy is infectious! LOVE you guys!!
From Doug Bilenski Sr., Port Orange, Florida (In response to our Superman 1950's public school poster post on the Funniest Thing! with Darrell and Ed Facebook page. See photo below)
Those were the good old days before "political correctness" and "safe zones"! Happy Days and team spirit the glue that made us stick together as a common people. I think we can rekindle tat spirit. Let's hope it is not by another World War!
Ed asked, "Comfort! What’s going on? How come you’re looking like such a sad sack?"
Jeff Comfort said, "Let me tell you. Three weeks ago, an uncle died and left me 50-thousand dollars."
"That's not bad at all...!", Ed shouted
"Hold on, I'm just getting started. Two weeks ago, a cousin I never knew kicked-the-bucket and left me 95-thousand, tax-free to boot."
Darrell was in shock, "Well, that's great! I'd love that."
Comfort continued, "Last week, my grandfather passed away. I inherited almost a million."
Finally Darrell and Ed asked, "So why are so glum?"
Jeff Comfort shrugged and said, "All I got in the mail this week was a bag of dicks from you guys!"
An Italian treat from Darrell and Ed just for you!
WARNING: Eating a Panettone cake as Darrell and Ed suggest may cause ignite a tremendous urge to devour the entire cake in one sitting. It's that good! For the rest of this story click here to check out Darrell's article/recipe of the same title with over 1,700 shares on Facebook!
