When you are in a great hurry to do something, just hold back a few seconds – that’s all it takes to shift from compulsiveness to consciousness.
Do you not know that your bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own; For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God’s. 1 Corinthians 6:19
And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people. 2 Corinthians 6:16
My soul yearns, even faints, for the courts of the LORD; my heart and my flesh cry out for the living God. Psalm 84:2
As you come to him, the living Stone–rejected by humans but chosen by God and precious to him–you also, like living stones, are being built into a spiritual house to be a holy priesthood, offering spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ. 1 Peter 2:4
Until now you have not asked for anything in my name. Ask and you will receive, and your joy will be complete.
“Have faith in God. Truly I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, ‘Be taken up and cast into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart that what he has said will come to pass, it will be done for him. Therefore I tell you, whatever you desire, when you pray believe you have received it and you will.”
Pray without ceasing.
1 Thessalonians 5:17
How, then, can they call on the one they have not believed in? And how can they believe in the one of whom they have not heard? And how can they hear without someone preaching to them?
Ye ask, and receive not,
because ye ask amiss,
that ye may consume it upon your lusts.
Then touched he their eyes, saying,
According to your faith be it unto you.
QUOTE: “Because consciousness is the only reality I must assume that I am already that which I desire to be. If I do not believe that I am already what I want to be, then I remain as I am and die in this limitation.”

Flesh ≈ anything that can be quantified by your mind, appearing and subsiding in time: people, places, things;
including thoughts, feelings, memories.

You, however, are not in the flesh but in the Spirit, if in fact the Spirit of God dwells in you. Anyone who does not have the Spirit of Christ does not belong to him.
For all who are being led by the Spirit of God,
these are sons of God.

the children of God
And as we have borne the image of the earthy, we shall also
bear the image of the heavenly.
1 Corinthians 15:49

The wind blows wherever it pleases.
You hear its sound, but you cannot tell
where it comes from or where it is going.
So it is with everyone born of the Spirit.

Now the Lord is that Spirit: and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty.
2 Corinthians 3:17
Except the LORD build the house, they labour in vain that build it: except the LORD keep the city,
the watchman waketh but in vain.
Very truly I tell you, no one can see the kingdom of God unless they are born again.
Are you so foolish?
After beginning by means of the Spirit, are you now trying to finish by means of the flesh?
He that eateth my flesh, and drinketh my blood, dwelleth in me, and I in him.

“The first man Adam became a living being”;
the last Adam, a life-giving spirit.
1 Corinthians 15:45
“Two nations are in your womb, and two peoples from within you will be separated; one people will be stronger than the other, and the older will serve the younger.”
Where to go?

They exchanged the truth about God for a lie,
and worshiped and served created things
rather than the Creator – who is forever praised.
Amen. Romans 1:25
Now this is eternal life:
that they know you, the only true God,
and Jesus Christ, whom you have sent.
If they have escaped the corruption of the world by knowing our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and are again entangled in it and are overcome, they are worse off at the end than they were at the beginning. 2 Peter 2:20
You study the Scriptures diligently
because you think that in them you have eternal life. These are the very Scriptures that testify about me,
yet you refuse to come to me to have life.
