Rev. Bates - Archived Messages

RevBates.tv Global - Weekly Message To The Masses for March 4, 2007 

           "Life is one perfect Wholeness.  The Universe is a Unit.  God is One.  IT IS IMPOSSIBLE FOR MAN TO FEEL SEPARATED FROM THE SPIRIT WITHOUT FEELING LOST AND IN WANT.  This is why [the Master Mind] Jesus said he could do nothing of himself, but could work only as the currents of divinity ran through his personal mentality.  That subtle something which runs through all things and which we call "the Thing Itself," that energy without which nothing can be energized, that Life without which nothing can live, that Power without which nothing can move, and that Spirit without which nothing can be - IS GOD.  It is only as we live in conscious union with the Spirit, and consciously let It work through us that we really live."   Dr. Ernest Holmes, The Science of Mind

As we begin to greater understand our relationship to the Infinite, our awareness of Life begins a process of evolution.  We realize that we are always supported, in our Good, by a Power and a Presence that is always with us.  The recognition that this is so, flows into our mind as we affirm that this is so.  It is as simple as that.  And this simple action of mind, is an act of faith.  And as faith is sustained in our mind, we actualize it in our experiences.  In scripture we can read, "faith is the substance of things hoped for" ... in other words, faith is the attracting energy that opens our mind to the "affirmative" ... the "yes, I can" ... and takes us out of the realm of doubts and worry.

     As Dr. Holmes explains in the Science of Mind ... it is because of this "simplicity" that so many do not realize Its Presence and Power.  Too many of us are looking for something "magical" or "dramatic" ... and this is not the way of Spirit.  Spirit functions through the Law of Mind that we establish in our own consciousness.  It operates perfectly and precisely to reflect back to us the thoughts that create and establish our state of mind concerning all things.  If we have a suspicious mind ... we will find lots to be suspicious of.  If we are entertaining self-pity ... we will find even more misery to entertain in our thoughts.  If we are confident that Life is for us ... we will find evidence to support this confidence.  That which I am seeking is seeking me ... this is the Truth in all things.

     God, Infinite Spirit, is not confined to a heaven or a hell ... It can present us with either as our thoughts give way to them.  It is not waiting for the Second Coming of Jesus ... or for a Messiah ... to bring us peace and the fulfillment of our Good desires ... It works through the mind of the human race to be and to do that which the race chooses to be and to be done.  We do not experience "as on earth, as in heaven" because we continue to defile God by defiling each other.  And the greatest examples of this come from religion and politics.  A glaring example of this is a recent speech given by Ann Coulter to the Conservative Political Action Conference ... click here for NY Times article ... in which she slandered one of the Democratic presidential candidates.  And of course there was criticism after her speech ... but the people who organized this conference were aware of her speaking "style" before she was invited to speak ... and each GOP presidential candidate speaking at the conference knew she would be speaking as well.  Were her statements from her individual consciousness ... or were they from the collective consciousness of those attending the conference?  In the Science of Mind we know that "like attracts like" ... Ann Coulter was just the "mouth-piece" for
the consciousness of the conference attendees.  In other words, she gave them what they came for.

     There is much in the world that must be reconciled back to God.  Individually and collectively there is a vastness in our thinking and our ideas that separate us from God.  The "heaven on earth" already exists ... all that is needed is the consciousness that realizes that this is so.  Let's not wait for religion or politicians to find their way.  Let us take an individual stand for Love, for Life, for Truth ... and for God.  Our spiritual evolution takes us back to the mystics ... rather than evolve according to physical laws ... we must evolve our thinking back to ancient wisdom ... "I am the first and I am the last, And there is no God besides Me." (Isaiah 44:6)
