From December 22 - Around The Year With Emmet Fox
The world will take you at your own valuation. Your body will take you at your own valuation. Your business will take you at your own valuation; for the value that you really put upon yourself is the one that manifests.
Emmet Fox uses the word "manifest" a lot. He maintains that thoughts are things, they create vibrations, and what "manifests" in our lives is the result of our thoughts and beliefs. It's hard to argue with that.
When we manifest obesity, Emmet Fox would tell us that that is the value we place on ourselves. We are obese because we think and believe ourselves obese. This is what the world sees and takes us at our word so to speak. The successful business people I see usually look fit and trim.
When we start manifesting health and wellness through eating and exercise habits the body has to respond and take us at our word which manifests out of thought. Our thought life is important.
- and what you really believe, that you will demonstrate.
What will we manifest in 2013?
This is from another of Emmet Fox's books - The Beatitudes
If you want material prosperity, you must first think prosperity thoughts and then make a habit of doing so, for the thing that keeps most people poor is the sheer habit of poverty thinking. If you want congenial companionship, if you want to be loved, you must first think thoughts of love and good will. Like begets like, another way of stating the Great Law, which means that as a man soweth in his unseen thoughts, so shall he reap in that which is seen. "All things work together for good to those who love good", and to love good means to occupy oneself with thoughts of good.
Again, what will we manifest in 2013?
