Casting the Burden – Florence Scovel-Shinn

Casting the Burden - Daily VigilanceImpressing the Subconscious – 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.”

He had overcome the world vibration, and functioned in the fourth dimensional realm, where there is only perfection, completion, life and joy.

He said: “Come to me all ye that labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.” “Take my yoke upon you, for my yoke is easy and my burden is light.”

We are also told in the fifty-fifth Psalm, to “cast thy burden upon the Lord.” Many passages in the Bible state that the battle is God’s not man’s and that man is always to “stand still” and see the Salvation of the Lord.

This indicates that the superconscious mind (or Christ within) is the department which fights man’s battle and relieves him of burdens.

We see, therefore, that man violates law if he carries a burden, and a burden is an adverse thought or condition, and this thought or condition has its root in the subconscious.

It seems almost impossible to make any headway directing the subconscious from the conscious, or reasoning mind, as the reasoning mind (the intellect) is limited in its conceptions, and filled with doubts and fears.

How scientific it then is, to cast the burden upon the superconscious mind (or Christ within) where it is “made light,” or dissolved into its “native nothingness.”

A woman in urgent need of money, “made light” upon the Christ within, the superconscious, with the statement, “I cast this burden of lack on the Christ (within) and I go free to have plenty!”

The belief in lack was her burden, and as she cast it upon the Superconscious with its belief of plenty, an avalanche of supply was the result.

We read, “The Christ in you the hope of glory.”
