I move my finger slowly,
it does what it is told.
it listens to me carefully,
if the truth be known.
If my finger is obedient,
it does what I want it to,
It seems likely my body,
will take instructions too.
The Mind that moves my finger
rules the responsive universe,
I need only trust completely,
for it to honor my requests.

thoughts and the resultant subtle directives we are subconsciously creating? Can this be
one of the elusive and little understood Truths that sets us free from the burdensome
trials of life? Can we demonstrate the courage to hold fast to our firmly held beliefs?
Through the wisdom acquired in contemplative prayer and meditation, we can realize
of the unreality of the delusion we are continually immersed in. With our unfolding
understanding, not only will we be able to give authoritative direction to our obedient
finger, we will surely be able to improve the overall quality of our lives. Could the cause
of all inharmony be our lack of awareness with regard to our ability to utilize the
inherent power of Mind which is flowing directly from the Almighty? When we trust our
thoughts have transformational power we are able to draw upon the infinite reservoir
of life and in doing so, we can realize our deepest desires. As a direct result of our trust,
coupled with the exalted quality of our thoughts, we are lovingly restored and renewed.
