There is an extraordinary word which can be declared, affirmed, chanted, sung, or mentally intended in any situation to always produce the most optimum result. That word is: TOGETHER.
People talk about “getting it all together” or “they’ve got it all together” — but you can deliberately declare the switchword TOGETHER and actually have it all together, in your life in general, or in any specific situation!
When you affirm or declare TOGETHER (silently or aloud), you soon become aware of the already-existing togetherness of all your aspects:
- subconscious-conscious-superconscious mind
- left-right brain.
You also are together in harmony in your outer world with everyone and everything around you. The results that you generate from this space are very satisfying, enjoyable, harmonious, efficient, optimum, and together! No aspect of your being is ignored or sacrificed to any other, and no aspects of your being are conflicting or fighting with any other, internally or externally. All are included in this great relaxed, peaceful, pleasing, prosperous, joyful, and together state where everything is turning out amazingly perfectly, moment by moment!
Just for a moment right now, let your attention just rest on that word, that thought, that energy of “TOGETHER” and notice what you feel and experience.
Then try it out — while doing any kind of creative activity (playing music, creating art, working in business, playing sports, participating in a party, loving, shopping, writing, etc., or even while doing nothing) — silently, intentionally, frequently, declare or affirm TOGETHER and watch what happens. Typically, you’ll experience surprisingly masterful capabilities and skills, along with satisfaction, peace, harmony, love, intelligence, freedom, joy, order, and more!
Then try this experiment: occasionally chant TOGETHER silently or aloud, throughout an entire day, and watch what happens to your day!
The use of TOGETHER as a “switchword” for mastery of any activity (including your whole life) was discovered by 20th-century metaphysical researcher James T. Mangan. He says in his book The Secret of Perfect Living that he had realized that if you could ask each of the billions of people who have ever lived on this planet what they most wanted in life — what their basic life-organizing principle was — the answers would fall into only fourteen categories:
11. The life of action
13. Service to humanity
14. God, religion, spirituality, and/or enlightenment
As a central theme of our energies in life, any single one of these is flawed. It may bring along a few of the others, but not necessarily all. For example, the life of art may bring pleasure, love, and a life of action, but doesn’t necessarily bring money, service to humanity, health, or security. A money-oriented life may bring security, survival, action, pleasure, and service to humanity but not necessarily health, happiness, or love… and so on.
James Mangan was searching for a much better central theme for his life than any of those conventional fourteen possibilities: a single one-word formula that would manifest all of them in perfect proportion! On March 10, 1951, he realized that the one-word formula he was looking for was: TOGETHER.
Together within yourself, all fourteen basic life themes together, together in harmony with everyone and everything around you. TOGETHER does it all, it’s the master key to any lock. Indeed, you could even call it, as James T. Mangan did, “the secret of perfect living.” Affirming or declaring TOGETHER in any situation (and throughout your life) is incredibly simple, but incredibly effective. Try it!
