NOW THE IMPORTANT THING is that you must release that seed. You must release it and it must be planted. And the perfect thing in the world to plant that seed is to take this piece of paper now and write the concept, “Thank you”. That’s the law of acceptance. And you would be amazed how many people in this world can’t accept their goods. You would be shocked. “Thank you” means you have accepted it. “I’m going to have it. I know it’s mine.” Then you take and you fold this piece of paper up with this goal on it, with this dream, with this desire and you put it away–put it underneath a tablecloth some place, put it in a drawer some place. Don’t carry it around and don’t take it out and look at it anymore. When you do this, that is planting it in the subconscious mind.
You’ve accepted–you’ve put it into the subconscious mind, and the thing starts to work. Now when you put this thing away, the reason you put it away after you have defined it: the seed has been planted in the subconscious mind. You put it away some place, never to be looked at again. The reason for it is like planting a seed in the earth, folks. If you go and dig that seed up two or three times a day to look at it, nothing’s going to happen.
If you’ve never seen a lack of faith–it’s the farmer who had the gullibility to dig up the seed to see if it was growing yet. Now that is little faith. He really believes in the laws of growth, and that’s the same way with us human beings. This is the way we’re making our mistakes. When we plant in the subconscious mind, and it’s there, the dream is there. The dream starts working towards you, the Cadillac starts working towards you, and events start taking place out here, and the next thing you know it’s getting closer and closer to you.
Now if you take it out, and you start to look at it, the thing that happens is we say, “I wonder where it’s coming from.” This is a true showing of a lack of faith. “I wonder when it’s coming. I wonder how it’s coming.” And so you are putting doubt in your law, and it will not come, folks. It will not come to you.
Now, what’s going to happen to the seed that you planted in the subconscious mind: you’ll be driving down the street, you’ll be in a restaurant talking to a friend and all of a sudden, there’s a red Cadillac convertible with a white top and the whole thing will hit you again and you’ll see your dream. And it’ll keep coming back.
The reason it’ll keep coming back to you is this is the only way that the universal law has of talking to you. There’s no voice–it’s all in visualization. And when this dream comes up, what it really means is that’s it’s on its way to you. It is on its way to you–it’s right around the corner. And so you do not at that time say, “How, when or where.” All you do is say, “Thank you” because you know it’s on its way. And then immediately put it back out of your mind.
And how would you act if you really and truly wanted a red Cadillac convertible–if you really and truly wanted one and it was a strong desire in your life, and you knew it was on its way, how would you act? You’d be excited, wouldn’t you? You’d feel good–you’d say, “Man it’s almost here, it’s almost here.” You’d walk taller, you’d look taller. You’d be happier. You’d be full of positive. You’d act different. Wonderful things are going to happen to you.
Where does the positive attitude come in at? It automatically creates a positive attitude because it’s the law of expectancy. Good things are going to happen. You have planted your seeds properly, and they are working themselves to you, and you are automatically a positive person because all these wonderful things are going to happen. Don’t just have one seed planted, folks–plant many seeds–any great desire you have in your life–a tangible object or intangible object. You can have anything in this world you want to have and you can be anything in this world you want to be by using this simple process.
