The Way to a Wonderful Life, Sunday, January
week's message will not be broadcast on the radio. Instead, the
radio broadcast will be a "repeat" of last week's broadcast
and message. This week, I want to pay tribute to the mystical
Ernest Holmes and his classic book, "The Science of Mind"
which is emblazoned with the wisdom of the ancients from the Torah, The
Holy Bible, The Eastern Philosophies, and the 19th and 20th Century
teachers of Truth; Ralph Waldo Emerson, Thomas Troward, Christian D.
Larson and Ralph Waldo Trine. The science of mind is faith-based
spirituality; absolute faith in G-d, in our divinity and faith in our
ability to choose and control our destiny through meditation, spiritual
mind treatment, prayer and the realization of our One-ness with G-d,
Infinite Spirit. The foundation principles are synonymous with the
teachings of Jesus and the ancient mystics before him, minus the dogma
of religion and the cultural attitudes of the era in which they were
written. It is a respectful way in which to truly worship G-d, and
to better understand how the simple instructions of the Master Mind
Jesus can cleanse our mind of the things we have learned from the world
so that we may evolve naturally through our own intellect and soul a
greater realization and experience of G-d and Life Itself." - Rev.
are some of my favorite excerpts from the 4-Introductory Chapters of
"The Science of Mind" by Ernest Holmes:
Learning To Trust Will Make Us Happy: When we learn
to trust the Universe, we shall be happy, prosperous and well. We must
learn to come under that Divine Government, and accept the fact that
Nature’s table is ever filled. Never was there a Cosmic famine. “The
finite alone has wrought and suffered, the Infinite lies stretched in
smiling repose.” God is always God. No matter what our emotional
storm, or what our objective situation, may be, there is always a
something hidden in the inner being that has never been violated. We may
stumble, but always there is that Eternal Voice, forever whispering
within our ear, that thing which causes the eternal quest, that thing
which forever sings and sings.
Divine Nature Is in Every Man: This is The Thing Itself. Briefly,
let us recapitulate. There is that within every individual which
partakes of the nature of the Universal Wholeness and — in so far as
it operates — is God. That is the meaning of the word Emmanuel, the
meaning of the word Christ. There is that within us which partakes
of the nature of the Divine Being, and since it partakes of the nature
of the Divine Being, we are divine. It reacts to us according to our
belief in It; and it is an immutable Law, subject to the use of the
least among us; no respecter of persons, It cannot be bound. Our Soul
will never change or violate its own nature; all the denying of it will
never change it; all the affirming of it will never make it any more
than it is. But since it is what it is, and works in the way that it
works, it appears to each through his belief. It is done unto each one
of us as we believe.
We will say, then, that in
spirit, man is One with God. But what of the great Law of the Universe?
If we are really One with the Whole, we must be One with the Law of the
Whole, as well as One with the Spirit of the Whole.
If we try to find something
difficult to grasp, then we shall never grasp it, because we shall
always think of It as being incomprehensible. The mind which we discover
within us is the Mind that governs everything. This is The Thing Itself,
and we should recognize its simplicity.
Spirit Works for Us by Working Through Us: 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.
belief sets the limit to our demonstration of a Principle which, of
Itself, is without limit. It is ready to fill everything, because It is
Infinite. So, it is not a question of Its willingness, nor of Its
ability. It is entirely a question of our own receptivity.
How Much Can We Believe? That we must go the way of the Law, is a
fundamental tenet of this Science, because Nature obeys us as we first
obey It, and our obedience to It is our acceptance of It. How much can
we believe? AS MUCH AS WE CAN BELIEVE will be done unto us.
When the consciousness
speaks, the law receives and executes. When a farmer plants a seed, he
invokes the law. That which follows is done by the mechanical side of
Nature, which has no volition of Its own. Involution is the cause and
evolution is the effect. When a person (modification) thinks, or gives
a treatment, or makes a prayer, he/she is dealing with involution -
the first step of the creative order. This is what the Bible calls the
Word. That which follows is evolution, or the enfoldment of the word,
or concept, into objective existence.
We are thinking, willing, knowing,
conscious centers of Life. We are surrounded by, immersed in, and there
is flowing through us, a creative Something ... call It what you will.
The sum total of all our thought, will, purpose, and belief, creates a
tendency in this Law that causes It to react to us according to the sum
total of that belief.
Ignorance of the law excuses no one
from its effects. If, then, certain specific ways of thought and belief
have produced limitations, other beliefs will change them. We must
learn to believe. The approach should be direct, and it should be
Suppose one is laboring under the idea of
limitation. His whole thought is a picture of limitation. Where is he
placing himself in Mind? Is he not, in substance, saying: “I cannot
have and enjoy good things”? And he is demonstrating that he cannot
have, or accomplish, good. It may take time to reshape the basis of his
thought; he must commence by saying, “I perceive that because I am
what I am – because of this Infinite Thing that over-shadows eternity
and finds Its abiding place in me, I know that good is now mine – all
good.” There is no mental coercion in this. 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.
much can one demonstrate (or receive)? 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.
The Universe Impersonal: The Universe is impersonal. It
gives alike to all. It is no respecter of persons. It values each alike.
Its nature is to impart, ours to receive. When we stand in the light, we
cast a shadow across the pathway of our own experience.
Emerson advises that we get our bloated nothingness out of the
way of the divine-circuits.
A Riddle of Simplicity: It is a beautiful and true thought to
realize that every man stands in the shadow of a mighty Mind, a pure
Intelligence, and a Divine givingness! Not
alone unto the great comes the soft tread of the Unseen Guest. The
arrogant have not perceived the simplicity of faith, but the pure in
heart see God. The farmer
has seen the Heavenly Host in his fields. The child frolicked with Him
at play. The mother has clasped Him to her breast and the fond lover has
seen Him in the eyes of his beloved. We look too far away for Reality.
The intelligence by and through
which we perceive that there is a Spiritual Presence and an Infinite
Mind in the Universe, constitutes our receptivity to It, and decides Its
flow through us. We have made a riddle out of simplicity; therefore, we
have not read the sermons written in stones, nor interpreted the light
of love running through life.
To return to a sane simplicity is
one of the first and most important things to do. All men receive some
light, and this light is always the same light. There is one nature diffused
throughout all nature; One God incarnated in all peoples.
The Divine Incarnation is
inherent in our nature. We are immersed in an Infinite Knowingness. The
question is, how much of this Reality are we going to express in our own
lives? The direct approach is always the best and the most effective. In
so far as any man has spoken the truth, he has proclaimed God — it
matters not what his particular approach may have been. The scientist
and the philosopher, the priest and the professor, the humanitarian and
the empire builder, all have caught some gleam of the eternal glory
and each has spoken, in his own tongue, that language which is of itself
us do away with a ponderosity of thought and approach the thing simply
and quietly. It is the nature of the Universe to give us what we are
able to take. It cannot give us more. It has given all, we have not yet
accepted the greater gift.
we are dealing with real Life — with thoughts, impulses, emotions,
etc. — we are dealing with Causation, with original Cause, and we
should be most careful how we deal with such powers and forces. In
dealing with this subtle power of Mind and Spirit, we are dealing with a
fluent force. It is forever taking form and forever deserting the form
which it has taken. Thus a practitioner of this Science should not be
confused over any given form, but should know that any form which is not
of the original harmony is subject to change. The Original Spirit is
Harmony. It is Beauty and Truth and everything that goes with Ultimate
Reality. The Universe is not divided against Itself.
We should learn to control our
thought processes and bring them into line with Reality. Thought should
tend more and more toward an affirmative attitude of mind that is
positive, stable, and — above all else — toward a real unity with
Spirit that is already complete and perfect.
We should be able to look a
discordant fact in the face and deny its reality, since we know its
seeming reality is borrowed from illusion, from “chaos and old
night.” Our standard is one of perfection. “Be ye therefore perfect,
even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect.” (Matt. 5:48) We
should be able to look at a wrong condition with the knowledge that we
can change it. The realization that we have this ability must be
gained by the application of our knowledge.
The practices of the
Science of Mind calls for a positive understanding of the Spirit of
Truth; a willingness to let this inner Spirit guide us, with the
conscious knowledge that “The law of the Lord is perfect.” (Psalms
19:7) And we must believe this to be a fact. IN SO FAR AS OUR THOUGHT IS
IN ACCORD WITH THIS PERFECT LAW, IT WILL ACCOMPLISH AND NOTHING CAN
HINDER IT. “Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not
pass away,” (Matt. 24:35) said the beautiful Jesus, as he strove to
teach his disciples the immutability of the Law of Righteousness.
a person (modification) uses thought definitely and for specific purposes,
and the more definitely he/she uses the Law, the more directly will It
respond to her/him. <>
SO IT IS!
