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
ECHO OF LIFE
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!"

"Son," the man replies, "pay attention!" Then

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.
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.
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

and foster our Good ideas until we are convinced that "It Is"
... when we align our ideas with Law we make the demonstration.
