WHAT IT DOES
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."
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
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
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
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!
So It Is!
