Casting the Burden
Casting the burden you say…has she gone wacky this Saturday morning? What in the world does that mean? Is this a fishing post? We’ve never had one of those! No, my dear friends, it’s not a fishing post, but a cleaning out the mind post and casting the burden of fear out of your head post! Tossing the old, gunky fears out of you and letting in the light of knowledge. How’s that? Just a new way of thinking…a way in which you can walk up to that fearsome lion of ____ (insert whatever you fear) and find he’s only a friendly Airedale (dog) waiting for you to pet him! (from Florence’s chapter 6 reworded by yours truly).
Simply put, replace fear with faith!
Excerpt from Chapter 6
When man knows his own powers and the workings of his mind, his great desire is to find an easy and quick way to impress the subconscious with good, for simply an intellectual knowledge of the Truth will not bring results.
In my own case, I found the easiest way is in “casting the burden.” A metaphysician once explained it in this manner. He said, “The only thing which gives anything weight in nature, is the law of gravitation, and if a boulder could be taken high above the planet, there would be no weight in that boulder; and that is what Jesus Christ meant when he said: “My yoke is easy and my burden is light.”
In steadily repeating the affirmation, “I cast this burden on the Christ within, and go free,” the vision clears, and with it a feeling of relief, and sooner or later comes the manifestation of good, be it health, happiness or supply.
One of my students once asked me to explain the “darkness before the dawn.” I referred in a preceding chapter to the fact that often, before the big demonstration “everything seems to go wrong,” and deep depression clouds the consciousness. It means that out of the subconscious are rising the doubts and fears of the ages. These old derelicts of the subconscious rise to the surface, to be put out.
I am asked, so often by my students, “How can I get rid of fear?“
I reply, “By walking up to the thing you are afraid of.”
“The lion takes its fierceness from your fear.”
Walk up to the lion, and he will disappear; run away and he runs after you.
One of my favorite affirmations is:
“I cast this burden on the Christ within, and go free!”
Try it out yourself!
