RevBates.tv Global - Weekly Message To The Masses for January 9, 2011 

         "We must instill into the mind the fundamental proposition that good is without bounds.  Only good and loving-kindness shall "follow me all the days of my life." (Psalms 23)  We must get this concept, rather than continuing to think there is a power of evil as opposed to the power of Good.  We experience good and evil because we perceive a presence of duality rather than unity. - Dr. Ernest Holmes, The Science of Mind, page 39 
28Verily I say unto you, All sins shall be forgiven unto the sons of men, and blasphemies wherewith soever they shall blaspheme:  29But he that shall blaspheme against the Holy Ghost hath never forgiveness, but is in danger of eternal damnation.
- Jesus, The Holy Bible, Mark 3:28-29

This message is the 2nd in a Series weaving together the annual review of the first four Introductory Chapters of "The Science of Mind" and the great synergy of this metaphysical masterpiece with the philosophy of the Master Mind Jesus.  The Radical Jesus, in the opinion of the great teachers of Mental Science and Metaphysics, was the first metaphysician.  He demonstrated and taught universal spiritual principles for all to understand ... in the simplest way possible, through parables.  The essence of his philosophy is the cornerstone of metaphysics, "it is done unto you, as you believe."

The Master Mind Jesus used the term "Father" when he referred to G-d.  He knew that this Universal Mind, Spirit, Intelligence, is the origin of everything; First Cause, Creator.  It is the Life of all that lives, here and in the hereafter.  It is the Intelligence that beats our hearts, causes our ears to hear, and intelligently created the physical laws that make life on this earth possible; i.e. the law of gravity, the law of unity, the law of order.  Dr. Holmes accepts this philosophy of Jesus as the Truth throughout all of his writings, lectures and classes.  I believe, as did the Radical Jesus and Dr. Holmes, that this One Life, which is G-d, expresses Its Life through every individual life ... in all forms of life.  The varying forms of Life, I believe, are but differing levels of consciousness expressing the Life of the Spirit.  We can know that humans, animals, birds, fish and all other forms of Life share in this Spirit, as all have the ability to express affection for other forms of Life.

     Science of Mind: 
"In our unawareness of the truth, we have misused the highest power we possess.  And so great is this power - so complete is our freedom in it, so absolute the domain of law through it - that the misuse of this power has brought upon us the very conditions from which we suffer.  We are bound because we are first free; the power which appears to bind us is the only power in the universe which can free us.  This is why Jesus summed up His whole philosophy in this simple statement:  "It is done unto you as you believe."  The great Teacher looked so deeply into Nature, that She revealed Her fundamental simplicity to him.  That "believe" and that "as" symbolize heaven and hell.  And so we suffer, not because suffering is imposed upon us, but because we lack the awareness of our true nature." (pgs. 36-37, modified)

     Philosophy of Jesus: 
"18Truly, I say to you, whatever you bind on earth shall be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven."  Holy Bible, Matthew 18:18

Both the philosophy of Jesus and the science of mind reveal to us that all is mind.  We "believe" in our mind ... and these beliefs out-picture in our experiences.  Dr. Holmes cautions us that we can just as easily make misuse of this power as to make constructive use of it.  This is but a restatement of the Master Mind Jesus' teaching ... heaven being our consciousness and earth being the results of the beliefs held in our consciousness as they are reflected in our daily experiences.  Yet, the world clings to a "heaven" up there, somewhere, and fails to gain the awareness of the profound truth that the Radical Jesus is revealing.  It is no easy task to get people to transcend "duality" ... even the masterful Jesus couldn't accomplish this.  We cannot realize our "heaven" as long as we continue to see evil as a power in the world ... not here and not in the hereafter!

     "Good Only - Not Good and Evil"
we can read in the science of mind and the Master Mind Jesus continually taught that the "Father" ... that is, G-O-D ... is Supreme, First Cause, Principle ...
"All is G-d and All is Good" ... when we nurture and foster this highest of Truth in our consciousness, then the Law of G-d ... precisely brings forth only Good into our experiences.  We must loose the illusion that appearances have caused us to bind in our mind that there is both good and evil ... "besides me (G-d) there is nothing"  Isaiah revealed this absolute truth 700 years before Jesus ... and yet people continue to believe in the "nothingness" ... often more than they do in G-d.  Let's not believe in the judgments of the world, let's believe and only believe in the Good.  That which appears as "evil" will disappear but that which is Good is eternal.

     Philosophy of Jesus: 
"45Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto a merchant man, seeking goodly pearls:  46Who, when he had found one pearl of great price, went and sold all that he had, and bought it." Holy Bible, Matthew 13:45-46

And so we learn from both the Science of Mind and the Master Mind Jesus that:  we can eliminate all discord from our mind by focusing on the Good ... and this creates in our consciousness a feeling of "heaven on earth" ... right where we are.  The pearl of great price is knowing that there is a power that is available to us ... to use for the Good ... that is greater than any seeming appearances that contradict it.


Keep the faith!
Rev. Dr. Henry Lee Bates
