                                                         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

         
Our willingness to give up the idea that we "know something" opens our mind to the inflow of the One Mind, God.  What we see in our life experience is what we "know" and we can go no further than that.  In order to expand how experiences into something greater, we must open our mind to the One Mind, God, allowing this Greater Mind to permeate our consciousness to a more expansive perception of the Infinity of Good that awaits our recognition and acceptance.

         From the Science of Mind: 
In an intelligent study of the teachings of the Science of Mind, we come to understand that all is Love and yet all is Law.  Love rules through Law.  Love is the Divine Giving-ness; Law is the Way.  Love is spontaneous; Law is impersonal.  We should study the nature of Reality with this in mind, and in this way we shall avoid two grave mistakes:  either viewing life as made up only of mechanical laws, or viewing it as made up only of spontaneous actions, irrespective of law and order.

         As we gain the broader viewpoint, we shall see that Life must contain two fundamental characteristics.  We shall see that there is an Infinite Spirit, operating through and Infinite and Immutable Law.  In this, Cosmos, and not chaos, finds an eternal existence in Reality.  Love points the way and Law makes the way possible.


        The Master Mind Jesus stated, "would a father give you a stone if you asked for a fish?"  Of course not.  And in the Infinite Giving-ness of God, we find always and forever, precisely what we ask for.

        From the Science of Mind: 
But, someone will ask, can we bring out both good and evil from the One Source?  Of course not.  The First Principle is goodness, and only in so far as our thought and action tend toward a constructive program, will it eventually succeed.

       We cannot fight the Universe.  It refuses to be budged from Its course.  We can only go with it.

       We have discovered what Principle is and How It Works, and now this is What It Does.  Specifically turn to that thought which tells us we do not know how to use It, and repudiate the falsehood.  The Principle that we have to demonstrate is perfect, and in so far as we can compel the mind to perceive this perfection - so far it will automatically demonstrate.

       When we think, something happens to thought.  The field through which thought operates is Infinite.  There is no reason to doubt it.  No matter how it is approached, to thought there can be no limit, so we will say that it is the nature of Being to react this way.  Here and now, we are surrounded by, and immersed in, an Infinite Good.  How much of this Infinite Good is ours?  ALL OF IT!  And how much of It may we have to use?  AS MUCH OF IT AS WE CAN EMBODY!

                     

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