             THE WAY IT WORKS

        
From the Science of Mind:  " A realization of the Presence of God is the most powerful healing agency known to the mind of humankind." - Ernest Holmes

           Many, many people have great faith in God or a Power Greater than they are, but attain very little success and happiness in their lives.  It is not enough to have faith, we must also understand how this faith can work in our lives.

(Science of Mind) The life which we live is the Universal Life expressing through us, else how could we live.  Our thought and emotion is the use we make - consciously or unconsciously - of this original creative Thing that is the Cause of everything.  Therefore, we shall say that the mind, spirit, and intelligence which we find in ourselves is as much of this original, creative God as we understand.

The above statement in the Science of Mind is merely a re-statement of the Master Mind Jesus' mystical words, "I and the Father are One."  God In Me and Me In God .... is another way of stating this Eternal Truth.  Without this Indwelling Spirit we have no life, no intelligence ... It Is living though us as a individualization of It ... not individual but an individualization.

(Science of Mind)
There is Spirit - or this Invisible Cause - and nothing, out of which all things are made.  Now, Spirit plus nothing leaves Spirit only.  Hence there is One Original Cause and nothing, out of which we are made.  In other words, we are made from this Thing.  That is why we are called the "son of God."

Now, how many of us can accept that we are the "son or daughter" of God?  Most of us have lived our entire lives under the false belief that we are something else ... and in this false belief is bondage to limitation.  The Mystical Jesus stated with great passion, "don't ye know that ye are Gods?!"  God Is Life, Life Lives, Life Lives in Me and in You ... It Is that "seed of perfection" within each of us ... It Is that knowing that there is Good for me and I ought to have it .. it is  that hope that health is on the other side of our illnesses, wealth on the other side of our indebtedness and poverty and loving companionship on the other side of our loneliness ... It Is the Good that we seek ... but we must seek It from within our very own consciousness, for It can only do for us, what It can do through us.

(Science of Mind)  There is no mental coercion in this (The Way It Works).  We do not will things to be done; things are brought into being, not by will , but by the power of the self-assertive Truth.  How much can we demonstrate?  Just what one can believe.  How much can we see, how much can we accept, how much can we find in our consciousness that is no longer repudiated by our own denials?  Whatever that is, THAT MUCH WE CAN HAVE.

                     

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