        "The tendency of your subconscious is always lifeward.  Your job is with your conscious mind.  Feed your subconscious mind with premises that are true.  Your subconscious is always reproducing according to your habitual mental patterns." ... Dr. Joseph Murphy, The Power of Your Subconscious Mind

The study of the Science of Mind teaches us to create a greater control over the conditions in our lives.  And for most of us this will mean that we have greater financial freedom, a greater sense of self-worth and an independent spirit.  People who study the Science of Mind realize that it is a lifetime study, as we are studying Mind, which is Infinite Spirit.

    Most of us will encounter people in our lives who do not understand our choice to study the Science of Mind.  But few of the people we encounter that find fault with metaphysics have ever read a metaphysical book ... or at least they didn't know they did.  Most opposition to the study of metaphysics comes from religious people who do not realize that the Bible is a metaphysical book ... and that Jesus was the greatest metaphysician and taught consciousness.  "It is done unto you as you believe," is a reference to Mind ... whatever we think into Mind returns to us in our experiences as a validation of our beliefs.  This is metaphysics.

    As we study the Science of Mind, we realize that all healing is spiritual healing.  Now, this does not mean that we do not seek medical care or take medicine ... what it does mean is that we use prayer and affirmations along with the medical care and medicine to insure that we are not merely cured ... but healed.  We realize that unless the consciousness that created the illness, financial loss, or whatever the discord may be ... is changed ... we will repeat the experience of illness, lack or limitation.  From the teaching of the Master Mind Jesus, we can know that unless the belief is replaced with a more lifeward belief, whatever has been done unto us will be done again.  Very few people outside of metaphysics have this awareness and many will not even consider it ... even those who refer to themselves as Christian.

     The Science of Mind is not a religion, although, there are those who are confused about this.  Like the teachings of Jesus, it points us to God ... and God alone ... never to anyone or anything outside of us.  "As within, so without" ... is a changeless, immutable Law ... but it is a Law of Good, for within us is all the peace, love, joy, harmony and happiness we will ever need.  Our work then is to tap into the infinite reservoir that has God as Its Source and Supply.  When we find ourselves in difficult situations, we know that all we must do is, "be still and know that I am God" ... and in so doing we tap into the infinite Source of peace, harmony, abundance and intelligence that lies within our mind waiting for our recognition of It.  With practice, this becomes our most effective action in solving the issues and revealing the Good in any and all situations that we may face.  This, "being still and thinking only of God" is the same action used by all the great mystics and healers.  It is a "turning over" the situation to God, Infinite Presence, Power and Intelligence ... it is the only right action in the face of discord of any nature.

    We must not expect everyone in our lives to understand our spiritual practice ... and we must always choose to respect those who do not ... but it is imperative that we continue to move onward and upward in consciousness in order to demonstrate the Presence of God in our lives.  "Many are called but few are chosen," we can read in scripture.  And we know in metaphysics that this means that many are called but few choose God ... choosing instead to look to the material world for solutions, healing and help.  And we have compassionate understanding for this ... as we march forward on the road less traveled.

And So It Is!  

Letting Love Use Me In Its Own Good Way,
Rev. Bates
