In Scientific Healing Affirmations Guruji says that we attract wealth, success, etc. by obeying the conscious, subconscious and superconscious laws of material success. I would like to attract to myself a job which uses my God-given talents, my strengths, and helps me to relate to my higher self. Is it possible to attract a job to oneself by concentrating on the subconscious and superconscious laws alone? I am a kriyaban. Please advise me about what I should do to attract the right job to myself. Aum Guru.
When our guru uses the term “superconscious” he is not referring to a level of consciousness that is OTHER THAN divine! Think of the “superconscious” as being the soul: a reflection of God (the Christ or Krishna consciousness).
The significance of this is that this method does not automatically remove from our life the accumulated karma that we have created from the past. When you write “…to attract a job to oneself by concentrating on…ALONE” you imply that this power of attraction is centered in the ego but that is NOT what is implied by reference to the “superconscious laws of material success.”
The principle of non-attachment applies also here lest by will power you achieve your job but find yourself enmeshed in creating more karma for yourself. In fact, the laws of success as guru outlines them very much includes non-attachment to the results. It’s a fine line, do you see? Success combines the highest of will power, energy, and creativity with non-attachment and surrender to the divine will. (Actually, it is not so much SURRENDER as ATTUNEMENT AND HARMONY with the divine will, but the difference is mostly in the words not in the reality of consciousness required.)
As a kriyaban, strive for freedom from karma by devotion, self-effort, attunement, and selfless service. Material success and creative engagement WILL COME when it is yours to come. On the other hand, if the success of this outward variety is your priority apply your will and attune your soul to the guru and if and when material success is yours, and especially for your soul’s freedom, it will come as day follows night. Live in the present thought that such a job is yours already and is the gift of the guru. It awaits only time and place but in the eternal now it exists already.
Remember that if such a perfect job were yours today but is received without attunement to God and guru you will find it falling short of satisfaction like the string that Yasoda used to try to tie to baby Krishna to keep him from being naughty!
Pray: “Beloved guru, I seek to serve you in a capacity that brings to me creative engagement with my God-given strengths and leads me to freedom in Thee. Bless my efforts with success that I might reflect Thy joy and serve other souls! Thy will be done!”
Blessings and joy to you,
