The Way to a Wonderful Life Message for February 21, 2016

         We each have as part of our spiritual nature the gift of intuition, it is natural and normal not paranormal or occult-ish.  Intuition reveals to us that which is already present in the Mind of G-d, the Spirit that knows all even before it is unfolded into material manifestation.  Intuition is that flash of knowing that creates a feeling in our heart and soul as we are connected in mind to the Mind of G-d Intelligence.  Whether we act on these intuitive or "gut feelings" varies with the self-confidence of the individual and oftentimes the results we have had when acting on previous intuitive thoughts.  Intuition provides for us an opening to that which the Master Mind Jesus referred to as "the kingdom of G-d within you" and which the mystics declared as the nature of G-d within mankind.

          Let's look at these words from the Missouri Mystic, Charles Fillmore (modified):  "
The possessions of the Father-Spirit-Intelligence-Power are not in stocks and bonds but in the divine possibilities implanted in the mind and soul of everyone. Through the soul of mankind God's wealth finds its expression. Wealth of consciousness will express itself in wealth of manifestation. One who knows Principle has a certain inner security given them by the understanding of God-Mind. 
         In order to demonstrate Principle we must keep establishing our self in certain statements of the law. Affirmations are for the purpose of establishing in our consciousness a broad understanding of the principles on which all life existence depends. The more often you present to your mind a proposition that is logical and true, the stronger becomes that inner feeling of security to you

         The great Fillmore is telling us that we must keep our mind stayed on the good that we desire to experience and know that the Intelligence that is of G-d can be relied upon to bring into our awareness every idea necessary to receive it.  It is the spiritual laws from the teachings of Jesus and the wisdom of the ancients that give us the awareness that the laws of G-d are for everyone and are changeless and eternal.  What one can do all can do is the truth that is laid out for us to create in our mind the expectation and the enthusiasm for whatever greater good we seek to realize for ourselves.  This is a profound truth; "through the soul of mankind God's wealth finds its expression" and this wealth takes the form of whatever it that gives us that inward feeling of the power within.  The word soul is synonymous with consciousness.  And this is why the Master Mind Jesus stated "the kingdom of heaven is within you no lo here or lo there" and secondly "the kingdom of heaven is at hand."  These two eternal truths fostered nurtured as the truth in mind shall automatically draw to us a greater confidence and enthusiasm for life.  To realize this as the truth for ourselves we must take our mind off our present conditions and circumstances if we are seeking to achieve that greater thing that our mind can conceive.  We must be willing to expand on our ideas of happiness, health, wealth and abundance.  Build up these ideas in our mind so that the expanding idea or thought can freely enter our mind and our imagination.

       There are those who will realize the right ideas for them in silent meditation, others in prayer, others through the use of affirmations and others by following their intuition.  Whatever way in which we come to realize that right idea for us that will heal us, bless us and prosper us, we must realize that it is that tapping on our consciousness from the One Mind which is G-d.  In this One Mind is all the Intelligence and Power we will ever need to tap into for us to realize the greater things that we desire to experience now.

It is no secret that most spiritual demonstrations have been successful for those who use silent meditation, affirmations and the study of Truth.  This may at first appear to require effort but I assure you that once you begin to tap into that "kingdom of G-d within you" you will experience the grace and ease that are a part of the Spirit.  

         The American Mystic Ernest Holmes gifted us with one such affirmation that can prepare our mind to receive the guidance and direction we require from Infinite Intelligence:  "I know there is an inner Presence in everything.  I know that this Presence responds to me.  I know that everyone is an incarnation of God, that the Living Spirit breathes through all.  I recognize this Spirit and It responds to me.  I realize that everything is alive, awake and aware with Spirit.  I commune with this Divine Presence.  The Spirit within me reaches out and communes with the Spirit in everything and everyone I contact.  It is the same Spirit in all, over all, and through all."  


Keep the faith!
