Weekly Message To The Masses, Sunday, January 4, 2004         

                 This is the 1st of 4 Lessons this month from the Introductory Chapters of the Science of Mind, authored by Dr. Ernest Holmes, Founder of Religious Science.  As we all know the Master Mind Jesus taught in parables ... simple stories with profound wisdom.  This week I am going to use a story I received from Dr. Johnnie Colemon of Chicago, Founder of the largest metaphysical church in the world, to illustrate Universal Law:

          
THE ECHO OF LIFE

            A man and his son were taking a walk in the forest.  Suddenly, his son trips and feeling a sharp pain he screams, "Ahhhhhh!"  Surprised, he hears a voice coming from the mountain, "Ahhhhhh!"  Filled with curiosity, he screams, "Who are you?"  but the only answer he receives is "Who are you?"  This makes him angry, so he screams, "You are a coward!"  and the voice answers, "You are a coward!"

            He looks at his father, asking, "Dad, what is going on?"

           "Son," the man replies, "pay attention!"  Then he screams, "I admire you!"  The voice answers, "I admire you!"

           The father shouts, "You are wonderful!" and the voice answers, "You are wonderful!"

           The boy is surprised, but still can't understand what is going on.

           Then the father explains, "People call this an "echo" but truly it is "Life"  Life always gives you back what you give out.  Life is a mirror of your actions.  If you want more love, give more love.  If you want more kindness, give more kindness.  If you want understanding and respect, give understanding and respect.  If you want people to be patient and respectful to you, give patience and respect.  This rule of nature applies to every aspect of our lives.  Life always gives you back what you give out.  Your life is not a coincidence, but a mirror of your own doings.

            In the first introductory chapter of the Science of Mind titled, "The Thing Itself," we learn that as we align ourselves with Universal Law ... through Love ... we are filled with ideas and these ideas become manifest in our experiences.

          ALL THOUGHT IS CREATIVE ... Since this is true, it follows that we cannot say that one thought is creative while another is not.  We must say that all thought is creative, according to its nature, impulse, emotion or conviction behind the thought.  Thought creates a mold in the Subjective, in which the idea is accepted and poured, and sets power in motion in accordance with the thought.  Ignorance of this excuses no one from its effects, for we are dealing with Law and not with whimsical fancy. - The Science Of Mind

          This is The Thing Itself, and we should recognize Its simplicity.  "Ask knowing that It Is," the Master Mind Jesus taught us ... we must nurture and foster our Good ideas until we are convinced that "It Is" ... when we align our ideas with Law we make the demonstration.  Dr. Holmes states, "Love points the Way ... and Law makes the Way possible."

 And So It Is! 
Letting Love Use Me In Its Own Good Way,
