THE PROCESS OMEGA CHURCH OF THE FINAL JUDGEMENT Saturday 11 July 1970 revised September 1973
Brethren, As it is,
1. 1 A basic principle of the New Game is 'want and get'. As the gap between what we want and what we think we want lessens, as our control improves and our contact increases, this principle will come more and more in evidence. A conscious wanting will lead more and more frequently to a conscious receiving.
2 But if we enter the New Game demanding that it fulfil itself in our favour, then we have not entered it at all.
3 Another basic principle of the New Game is the elimination of the concept of demand. But this cannot happen as long as we are ourselves demanding - particularly demanding for ourselves.
4 Wanting is a far cry from demanding. In the New Game wanting and getting come closer and closer together. But demanding is an obstruction to the very manifestation of the New Game.
5 As long as the New Game is not completely fulfilled, demanding will manifest. There is no need to be appalled by this. But equally do not confuse demanding with wanting. It is an Old Game hangover; a protested intention which generally indicates a more powerful unconscious counter-intention.
6 So if you find yourself demanding - particularly demanding for self - then demand by all means, but recognise that the likelihood is that your demand will not be met.
7 WHATEVER YOU DEMAND, EXPECT THE OPPOSITE.
8 Desire for success may be pure intention, and may therefore lead to success. Demand for success usually stems from an anticipa- tion of failure, and therefore generally leads to failure.
9 And as in the Cycle of Ignorance, even when the demand is met on a superficial level, there is no sense of fulfilment in it. So even on the occasions when you get what you demand, do not expect any true satisfaction. The attainment will be an empty one.
10 Lucifer gives to those who ask of Him, but those who demand of Him, even when He meets their demands and gives, do not find His presence in the gift. They find only disillusionment.
So be it.
