Greetings from all of us here at Serenity Now.

I (Brooke) want to thank you for the priceless gift you are to us.

A few weeks ago I felt guided to watch a program on the History Channel. I did not retain much of the information, but I remember hearing about a unit of measure that was used, and the numbers were 1.414. That number, for whatever reason, seemed significant to me; to the point that I actually wrote it down. As I did, I noticed that I had written the number 14 twice.

Later on that very day I heard an interview with George Clooney. Now mind you, I don’t know anything about him except that he is an actor, recently married, and has twins. Not seeing any reason on this Earth to watch this I went looking for the remote to turn the TV off. In the few seconds that my search took I heard that he had 14 of his friends over to his house. The instant that I heard the number 14 I knew this was not a coincidence. I made myself comfy on the couch. The program was about a recent get-together at his house were George had given the 14 guests, each a briefcase filled with a million dollars cash. He said that every single person has done something for him that he wanted to appreciate. One of the people was Cindy Crawford’s husband. I believe his name is Gerber. The journalist wanted to know what great act had he done that George had deemed worthy of this huge amounts of money. Mr. Gerber said: “When George first came to Hollywood I had him sleep on my couch, it was no big deal.” But that simple act of kindness had obviously made a difference for George. After the program was over I thought this was truly an example of a prosperity story.

It reminded me of Luke 12:32: “Do not be afraid little flock it is your Father’s good pleasure to give you the kingdom”. I think what this verse says to me is; as children of the Most High we deserve to be provided for. Somewhere in my mind I need to negate the belief of “having to earn my good”. By no means am I saying that any of us should quit our jobs, but having the faith to know we have access to infinite resources because of our nature. Eric Butterworth in his book Spiritual Economics (page 70) says: “The question maybe asked: ‘Do you really believe that faith can change things?’ There is a changing process, like light streaming into the room when you open the drapes. However, faith does not change the nature of reality any more than opening the drapes changes the nature of light. Faith tunes into reality and releases the imprisoned splendor.” I would love for all of us to be able to experience the infinite in ways we have never imagined.
