Weekly Message To The Masses, Sunday, January 11, 2004         

                 This is the 2nd of 4 Lessons this month from the Introductory Chapters of the Science of Mind, authored by Dr. Ernest Holmes, Founder of Religious Science.  Lesson #1 can be read by clicking:  "The Thing Itself."  These lessons are the basics of the Science of Mind, a metaphysical philosophy that is aligned more closely with the teachings of the Jesus, Moses and Isaiah, than any other spiritual philosophy, including other metaphysical teachings.  Within these first four introductory lessons are the Keys to Life Mastery.


Enthusiasm is the most creative of all the imaginative faculties.  There is something light, unobstructed, weightless about it.  We cannot associate the Spirit with sadness or depression.  The very thought of the "Fountain of Life" suggests a gushing forth; a bubbling up from a subterranean passage; whose flow is irresistible, Spiritual communion is not a droll affair.  It is not a wailing wall.  It is the triumphant procession of the soul into the secret place of the Most High.  - from "Words That Heal Today" by Dr. Ernest Holmes.

 From the Science Of Mind: 
There is a Universal Mind, Spirit, Intelligence, that is the origin of everything:  It is First Cause.  It is God.  This Universal Life and Energy finds an outlet in and through all that is energized, and through everything that lives.  There is One Life back of everything that lives.  There is One Energy back of all that is energized.  This Energy is in everything.  There is One Spirit back of all expression.  That is the meaning of that mystical saying:  "In Him we live, and move, and have our being."  (Acts 17:28)

          The Thing, then, works for us by working through us and is us, always.  It cannot work for us in any other way.  It spreads Itself over the whole universe and shouts at us from every angle, but It can become power to us ONLY WHEN WE RECOGNIZE IT AS POWER.

          We cannot recognize that It is, while we are believing that It is not.  Hence, it is written:  "they ... entered not in because of unbelief."  (Heb. 4:6)  We may enter in because of our belief, but we cannot enter while there is unbelief.  Here we come to a house divided against itself.  If we say we can only experience a little good, then we shall experience but a little good.  But, if we say, with Emerson, "There is no great and no small to the soul that maketh all," then we may experience a greater good because we have conceived it ..... so, it is not a question of Its willingness, nor of Its ability.  It is entirely a question of our own receptivity .... Let us realize and work with this sound knowledge and perfect faith:  That as high as we shall make our mark in Mind and Spirit, so high shall be Its outward manifestation in our material world.

And so now we have a greater understanding of the scriptural statement, "with God All things are possible" ... and so we can begin to erase and eliminate from our consciousness ideas that limit us ... thoughts of any power other than God .. All Good ... All God.  So, no matter what it is that we desire, what it is that we seek ... or what it is we dream of ... we can remain calm and confident in knowing that if God be for us ... what can be against us? NOTHING.  So, let's declare the Truth about the situations in our Life ... let's declare health in the face of illness, wealth in the face of financial strain, companionship in the face of loneliness, joy in the face of sadness ... and thanksgiving in the face of depression and frustration.
(Go to Lesson #3)

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