Catch The Mood
Now, Churchill said: “This is an age in which the fortunes of people are determined by their moods.” This is not an age where people think, “Well, now, give me something first and then I will feel happy about it.” No, he said the mood determines the fortunes, rather than the fortunes determining the mood.
Now, that is Churchill, a very practical man; and here he is telling the entire world who will listen to him that a mood – if you hold a mood – well, what is a mood but an imaginal state?
How would I feel if this moment I desired some intense wonderful thing and I had it? But how would I feel? Well, that’s a mood. Churchill tells us: Catch the mood, and the mood will determine the fortunes.
Don’t wait for the fortunes to react to the mood, but catch the mood and make the mood become causative and produce the result in the outer world – the fortune.

Yes, catch the mood! A woman over 2000 years ago who had suffered from bleeding for twelve years, said to herself “If I may but touch the helm of HIS Garment I would be made WHOLE and immediately her bleeding stopped, and she sensed in her body that she was healed of her affliction…”
No drama, no complicated gymnastics but simply catching the MOOD of health produced the result…for in HIM we are complete and ours is to catch the feeling tone of what we desire and the Master releases the result.
To your success!
