"The Art Of Being Yourself"
The Way to a Wonderful Life Message for January 22, 2017
love, more joy, more peace, more happiness, greater prosperity and
success are available for those who can take into their mind an
absolute realization of the Spirit of G-d working through their soul
to establish these things in their life experiences. Yet, for
some, the absolute is more of an ideal rather than something they
can accept for themselves without wavering. And I believe this
has to do with the way in which we have cultivated faith in our
consciousness. Faith is not hope, although in the beginning
hope may be that which increases our faith. We read in the
ancient wisdom of the New Testament of the Holy Bible that "faith
is the evidence of things not seen." This evidence
must first be established in our mind and it must always be
mystic Ernest Holmes defines the absolute in this way: "The
Unconditioned - that which nothing can limit; that which forever
transcends any conceivable limitation or determination.
Unconditioned perfection. Self-Existent,
Self-Sufficient. Often used as a synonym for God. Truth
is absolute and remains unaffected by the opinions, desires or
beliefs of mankind."
As we consider Ernest
Holmes' definition of the absolute we can realize that it becomes to
us as something real ... as the truth for us or the truth about the
thing ... but it is up to us to condition our mind to accept it with
absolute faith and to see the evidence in our mind, first.
Butterworth in his essay "A New Look at Jesus" provides
more insight that we would want to consider: “He
something in himself, which he believed was fundamental to all
persons. His teaching was that the Kingdom of God is within you –
that this dynamic potential to achieve and to overcome is a level
within yourself that the Apostle Paul called, "Christ in you,
the hope of glory." [Corinthians. 1:27] Jesus said, and mind
you, he said this: "...the works that I do shall he [you] do
also; and greater works than these shall he [you] do...." [John
14:12] That is the key."
I believe that
Jesus' "Kingdom of God" is referring to the nature of G-d
within each of us. It is Intelligence most of all. It
was Jesus' focus on Intelligence that set him apart from all the
other teachers of his time. Yet, this focus on Intelligence
was failed to be realized by those who followed him including those
closest to him in favor of establishing religion and religious
dogma, both of which he realized kept us separated not only from the
Spirit of G-d Itself, but also separated us from each other.
This absolute faith in Infinite Intelligence to respond to us by
corresponding to that which we believe to be true for us is lost
when we loose our sense of self-reliance and look instead to
religious leaders' or anyone else's approval for that which we seek
And once again I would like to stress that we keep the things we
hold closest to our hearts in prayer to ourselves. Our ability
to hold something in our mind and heart as absolutely ours is
between us and the Source of all creation, G-d. Our absolute
faith trumps anything un-like it and even this we must know within
and not make known to the world which perpetuates doubt and worry
and fear. "And he (Jesus) saith unto them, Why are ye
fearful, O ye of little faith?" ... and so we must let go of
fear and its step-children doubt and worry and believe absolutely
that our good is guaranteed.
And so it is!
