Why Gumby Matters – Week 13

Have you ever noticed when you go through a change or change things up, things just get twisted up just before the breakthrough?  I always visualize a Gumby twisted at the waist before the legs whip around to follow where the head is leading.

It is right there between the old way and the new way, that the body does it most vicious battle and causes the person involved to experience some depression, doubt, and a sense of vulnerability.

I have learned that when I experience this sense of internal conflict, I am on the verge of change.  Yes, the process is working and I will accept it as my new me.  I Believe!

“What things soever ye desire, when you pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them.”  Mark 11:24

Faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.

“All truth is the same, whether stated in modern scientific terms or in the language of apostolic times.” MK 11.23

So what does the creative power of thought consist?  It consists in creating ideas, and these in turn objectify themselves by appropriating, inventing, observing, discerning, discovering, analyzing, ruling, governing, combining, and applying matter and force.  It can do this because it is an intelligent creative power.  MK 11.30

Now we must put our knowledge into practice. Nothing can be accomplished in any other way.  It is now important to give out thoughts of courage, inspiration, health, or any kind of help which in turn will set in motion the return effect.  This is the Law of Attraction.

….”A happy thought cannot exist in an unhappy consciousness; therefore the consciousness must change, and, as the consciousness changes, all conditions necessary to meet the changed consciousness gradually change, in order to meet the requirements of the new situation.” MK 13.24

“Thought will bring about conditions in correspondence with the predominant mental attitude.” MK 13.16

When I leap for joy, my twisted waist swings my legs around to face the direction I intend to go.  Now my body is in line with my mental focus which allows my spiritual core to flow in creativity in becoming part of a whole in happiness and harmony.

Gumby is ATTITUDE   Gumby is a ACTION    Gumby is RESULTS  Gumby LEARNES

    Cyndria…great example with Gumby! It wasn’t until I clicked on the link that I completely understood. I also like the way you used scripture to relate to the readings. The journey continues!

      I should have made the link to Gumby more noticeable as it related to my post…I agree. I love using scripture in what I write about. Glad you liked it.

    Hi Cyndy,
    Thanks for your great post. I am going through a major personal/relationship change and this really helped me feel better about where I am in the process. This line was very helpful “I have learned that when I experience this sense of internal conflict, I am on the verge of change. Yes, the process is working and I will accept it as my new me. I Believe!” I also loved the way you weaved in the MK and scripture references. Thank you!

      I am glad that this visual helped you, Nicole. Sometimes word pictures can convey a difficult process more clearly than an analytical one. When I experience certain stresses of life, I really can’t think as clearly and that is when I really appreciate the simple things of life to help make sense of ‘stuff.’ The Holy Scriptures is God’s way of communicating with us and I see so much connection with what we are reading and doing.

    This post leaves me wanting a picture of Gumby. I clicked on the link in your blog and I got my picture of Gumby. I absolutely loved your blog. Especially, the last paragraph. And the link had some great additions, like: “Gumby is action. Lazy is easy. Action is often strenuous and sometimes exhausting, but those who have Gumby know that taking the effortless path rarely gets you where you need to be.” Nice! 🙂

      I really tried to find a Gumby picture but it appeared I was going to have to pay for it, so that is why I did the link instead. Yes, I loved that description of Gumby too, and am going to use him as a reference for my grandchildren.
