Weekly Message To The Masses, Sunday, January 18, 2004         

                 This is the 3rd of 4 Lessons this month from the Introductory Chapters of the Science of Mind, authored by Dr. Ernest Holmes, Founder of Religious Science.  Each year ministers in Religious Science churches and centers review these very important chapters.   Lesson #1 can be read by clicking:  "The Thing Itself."  Lesson # 2 can be read by clicking:  "The Way It Works." These lessons are the basics of the Science of Mind ...  a teaching that affirms the validity of Jesus' statement, "it is done unto you as you believe."  Within these first four introductory chapters are the Keys to Life Mastery.

          
WHAT IT DOES

           
From the Science of Mind:  " 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 giving-ness!  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 has 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 state of 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.
- Dr. Ernest Holmes

           
 As we can read in both the Science Of Mind and in scripture, the Universe is impersonal.  It gives alike to all and is no respecter of persons.  We are all valued alike and Its nature is to impart or to give and our responsibility is to receive.  However, we must open our minds to receive .. by letting go of ideas and thoughts that block the Infinite as It moves to impart our highest and greatest Good ... the Infinite can only give us what we can take; It imparts of Itself only as we partake of Its nature.  It can only tell us what we can understand.  The Infinite Knowingness becomes our wisdom only in such degree as we embody Its Intelligence.

         I believe we can only "know God" to the measure that we are willing to "experience God" ... and no more.  Many of us fail to demonstrate a greater experience of God or Good ... simply because we hold onto ideas and concepts that deny the Infinite Impulse that seeks to flow through us ... we cannot limit the Infinite ... nor can we bring God down to the level of the physical ... and when we deny the Good that comes to us by our steadfast and immovable ideas of materiality ... we are denying the gifts that the Infinite is attempting to impart to us through our very own consciousness.

      
An intelligent person studying metaphysics understands that everything in our Life; relationships, job, financial condition, health etc. are first accepted in our consciousness.  To look at what we have demonstrated as inferior or not good ... is to deny our own consciousness and to deny that the Infinite Good-ness is surrounding us.  Everything Is Good ... and no matter what we may be experiencing ... our commitment must be to demonstrate more Good ... not to demonstrate from a standpoint of lack to abundance .. or inferior to superior ... to do so is spiritual ignorance ... what we have NOW .. is Good ... this must always be our point of beginning as we pray or do treatment for more Good in our lives.  The Master Mind stated, "he who has less will have even less and may even lose what they have ... while he who has more will have even more still" ... this speaks to our consciousness as it is aligned or not aligned with Infinite Good.
(Go to Lesson #4)

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