Good morning Roy, good morning Joseth.
Is it really faith that moves mountains, or is it knowing that you can, that does it? In your language, knowing, having faith, and believing are words that have been interchanged and used to mean the same thing. They are only degrees of the same thing. Faith and believing lead up to knowing, but does not have the power. For instance, knowing is absolute. If you know something, like my name is Roy. Is there anyone that could tell you different. You know it, just as you know the sun comes up every morning or death and taxes. These are things that you all take for granted and know to be true. Knowing does not have to be justified. You know it because.
Having faith in something is a little more questionable and not as absolute as in knowing, and believing. "I believe this to be so," would leave room for error or doubt. You believe this to be so, because you have "faith" in your source. But you have taken away the responsibility for knowing and you have transferred your faith to the knowing of another. Their knowing is your faith. You can have a little faith or a lot of faith in a thing, but faith always tends to leave the results in the hands of another, like me for instance. You say that you have faith that I will do a thing for you if you ask. But you do not say that you know I will. You are kind enough to leave the decision to me. "I have faith that everything is going to turn out ok," it is not nearly as powerful as "I know everything is going to turn out ok."
The two most powerful words in any language are "I AM." They are absolute and express knowing. "I think I am," expresses faith, that you are. I believe "I am," also expresses faith that you are. "I am," expresses absolute knowingness.
What does all this mean, what does it matter? In terms of manifesting or creating, it means the difference between getting what you desire or not. The person that knows he is rich, already has it. The person that has faith in his richness, is not quite sure. You can only have it, if you know that you do. Faith and belief are much slower at creating what you desire and most often bring results of having faith or believe, but not actually manifesting what you desire.
To manifest or create your desires, you must "know," that you will have it. Knowing does not leave room for any doubt. Faith and believing will become stronger as you begin to know that it is you that is creating. You will come to a point, where faith does not serve you.
The absolute power comes from the word "know." Faith and belief pale in the light of knowing. You can not argue with one that knows. What is there to debate, to talk about? You can not tell him anything. The word "know" is the last word in an argument and is final. "I know that."
When things are not working out for you, are not going your way, and you are not getting what you desire, how do you know that? Your answer will more than likely be, "I Know." It is observable, I can see it for myself. The first word "I" is the authority, the second word is the law "know" and is final.
In effective manifesting you must think correctly and take responsibility for your creation. You must speak or think with authority. You must know that it is you that is doing the creating/choosing. Forget about faith or belief that you will get what you want, do not give your power away. Know that you shall have what you want, you will succeed, it is your power that will make it manifest. Remove faith and belief, and you remove the chains that are holding you back. Know that you know and you will know.
If I were to believe that you could do this, I would not know that you could. I would have some doubt, and a little hope that you could. These thoughts are very weak.
I know that you can do this. I have no doubt. Doubt has been removed. You are making the most positive statement of your ability, you have brought it into creation. I know that you can do this. I am declaring my authority through you as creator of all that is. There is no room for doubt, faith or belief. The power is you, not outside of you. You can access your power simply by knowing that you can, unless of course you know that you can not.
I am the creator of the universe. I did not need faith to create it. I simply did it. That is your heritage, your inheritance. You can not know God unless you are God. You can not know the power of God or his/her attributes unless you have them. Know this, and you will know a great secret.
