                                                                          HOW TO USE IT

From Dr. Ernest Holmes:  "Right now we are connected with our good, but we must whisper the message of our desire into the Creative Medium of soul.  The Answer will come back to us as the image of our thought recognizes its reflection in the pool of the spiritual Substance, which is forever held in solution, and which is forever ready to take form." 

           From the Science of Mind:  One of the great difficulties in the new order of thought is that we are likely to indulge in too much theory and too little practice.  As a matter of fact, we only know as much as we can prove by actual demonstration.  That which we cannot prove may, or may not, be true but that which we can prove certainly must be, and is, the truth.

          Dr. Holmes has been quoted as stating, "this teaching is not worth a dime if we cannot demonstrate it."  This is in alignment with the statement from Jesus, "you will know my faith by my works."  In other words, our faith in the Principle of Life, in the Infinite Good-ness and Infinite Giving-ness of God, can be demonstrated in our daily affairs.  It is an immutable Law that responds to our "faith in It."  "It is done unto you as you believe," was written in the Bhagavad-Gita 5,000 years before the Master Mind Jesus made the same statement and demonstrated it in His works.  The "key" word is "as."  As we believe in prosperity, we prosper .... as we believe that God is the Doer of the impossible .. God demonstrates the impossible.  Faith is the key to demonstration ... but our faith must be in the Principle for the Principle never fails ... as our beliefs turn to the negative, to fear, doubt and worry ... the Principle automatically and precisely demonstrates that which will give us more experiences of fear, doubt and worry.  This is the Law of Mind.  We can only "believe" with our mind, so Mind is everything and everything is Mind.

          From the Science of Mind:  It has been proved that by thinking correctly and by a conscious mental use of the law of Mind, we can cause it to do definite  things for us, through us.  By conscious thinking, we give conscious direction to It, and It, consciously or unconsciously responds to our advance along the line of our conscious, or subjective, direction.

           It must and will respond to everyone, because It is Law and law is no respecter of persons
(From scripture, "it rains on the good and the bad alike.").  We are surrounded by an intelligent force and substance, from which all things come - the ultimate Essence, in the invisible and subjective world, of all visible and objective forms and conditions.  It is around us in its original state, ready and willing to take form through the impulse of our creative belief (Jesus:  "The kingdom of heaven is within you, not lo here or lo there.").  It works for us by flowing through us.  This law we did not create; this law we cannot change.  We can use It correctly only as we understand and use It according to Its nature.

          Hence, it follows that if we believe that It will not work, It really works by appearing to "not work."  We we believe It cannot and will not, then, according to the Principle, It DOES NOT.  But when It does not, It still does - only It does according to our belief that It will not.  This is our own punishment through the law of cause and effect; we do not enter in because of our doubts and fears.  It is not a punishment imposed upon us by the Spirit of God, but an automatic result of failing constructively to use the Law of God.

       Healing and demonstration take place as our minds become attuned to the truth of Being (Perfect God, Perfect Man).  There is no process of healing, but there is generally a process in healing.  This process is the time and effort which we undergo in our realization of Truth.

        The one who wishes scientifically to work out his problems, must daily take the time to meditate and mentally affirm the positive results, no matter what the apparent contradictions may be.  In meditation and affirmative prayer we are working silently in the Law and the Law will find an outlet through our faith in It.  This Law is the Law which puts the act into all action.  It is the Great Invisible working through us to will and to do.  It is a spiritual entity working through the Law of Mind, and it is a force now consciously directed through our prayer and meditation.  And ......... it must produce results. 


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