There is in truth no way to advance on the Spiritual path unless you make a decisive decision about it!

As Paramahansa Yogananda, the Indian guru, said, “If you want to realize God, you must want Him like a drowning man wants air!” If you don’t want God like a drowning man wants air, you will not fully realize God. May sound a bit harsh but it is 100% true! Because to whatever degree you don’t want God like a drowning man, you want false gods. And false gods lead you on false paths. They lead you to the land of illusion, glamour and maya.

Work with these affirmations whenever you feel your energy sinking. They will help you re-establish the necessary determination and decisiveness when needed.

1. I am settling for nothing less than all I can be!
2. I am determined to be all I can be and more!
3. I have infinite potential and infinite creativity to create anything I want in my life!
4. I am determined with every fibre of my being to go for full Self and God Realization!
5. God wants me to fully realize that I am an expression of the Divine. So do I!
6. Every thought counts. I decisively choose to master my mind!
7. I am always in self-mastery, every moment of my life!

Author's Bio: 

Dr Joshua David Stone was one of the most influential Spiritual teachers, leaders and forerunners of our time. He had a Ph.D. in Transpersonal Psychology and was a licensed Marriage, Family and Child Counselor in California, USA.
He served as Official Spokesperson for the Planetary Ascension Movement and made his mark in the Consciousness Community as a prolific writer, authoring the 15-volume Easy to Read Encyclopedia of the Spiritual Path, published in several languages, as well as eight major Ascended Master Training Courses and several comprehensive Training Programs ranging from channeling, the psychology of astrology, the Book of Life of God, to his legendary 2,000 page Counseling Manual, and much, much more.
Today, the I AM University is the one and only Integrated Ascended Master Training Facility in this world. It stands firmly on the foundation of a comprehensive and ever-expanding curriculum which Dr Stone dedicated his life creating.
In 2005, Dr Joshua David Stone passed over to the Spirit world where he continues to Spiritually support the expansion of the I AM University the continuation of which he entrusted into the hands of Gloria Excelsias, his long-term personal assistant and protégé.
Dr Stone is one of the most widely read authors in the New Age Movement and known as the world’s most trusted source for integrated Spiritual development.

Gloria Excelsias is the President of the I AM University, an educational institution with focus on Spiritual and psychological development that was founded by the late Dr Joshua David Stone in 2004 and handed over to her care and leadership in 2005, at Dr Stone’s passing. As Dr Stone’s personal assistant, close friend and protégé, she received ongoing personal training in applied transpersonal psychology and integrated ascension which would prepare her consciousness for her later service work as the University’s President. Having moved the I AM University from California to Salzburg, Austria, her native country, she is now passionately dedicated to running and evolving the I AM University as an inspired writer and speaker, placing thematic priority on Spiritual psychology, the re-integration and updating of ancient occult teachings and the overall unfoldment of human consciousness.
