The Way to a Wonderful Life Message for March 6, 2016

         The truth that is woven through all the wisdom of the ages is that G-d Is Intelligence and that if we are to make use of the spiritual laws that govern our relationship with G-d and Life we must do so intelligently.  All that we need at any given moment is available to us and rather than believe that something within us is lacking in our ability to receive our good, we must affirm and develop the strength of mind to know that all that we need; faith, knowledge, etc. ... we have.  It is inherent within us to seek our connection to the Power, Intelligence and Spirit (Mind) that Is G-d.  Any false illusion of separation from G-d is the error of mankind's attachment to the physical and the belief that the "real" is material rather than spiritual.    

          The American mystic Ernest Holmes wrote in his book "This Thing Called You":  "
The spiritual genius of Jesus lay in his knowledge of spiritual laws.  He dared to believe in the invisible Source of his being, and to trust It.  He was not frightened by the storm, nor by the fears of others.  He could say, "Peace" to both.  He was able to bring the calm of others to the surface.  This is "deep calling unto deep."  It is God calling unto God.  It is God answering God.  ... Get it firmly fixed in your consciousness that just as there are laws of physics, there are spiritual and mental laws which act in an identical manner.  Have confidence in the laws of Mind and Spirit, and in your ability to use them

         The way in which we gain confidence in anything is to tell ourselves that we are confident in our abilities and talents and to affirm this is the truth about us every day.  Our mind is a powerful instrument of our soul.  We must use it with confidence and faith.  We must believe in ourselves and develop the confidence to know that our mind used intelligently is more powerful than anything that we may be confronted with.  We can use our mind to become self-reliant and establish the determination to succeed in all that we do, to be healthy and to be happy. 

        Ernest Holmes shared this wisdom with us:  "With a good-natured flexibility with yourself, learn to rise from confusion into peace, from sadness into joy.  There is no law for you but your own soul shall set it, under the one great Law of all life.  Turn to the Light within.  Believe in yourself.  Have confidence in the high impulsions that come to you.  Listen deeply to the Divine Nature which forevermore imparts Itself to you.  Spirit is absolute, unlimited and ever available.  Spirit is right where you are.  Spirit fills all space, flows through all form, creates everything, governs everything through love, controls everything through law, expresses life and beauty in everything."

         Let us devote our time to thinking about what we want to experience in our life.  Think about the degree of health that we accept for ourselves.  Think about the level of wealth that we want to realize for ourselves.  Think about the sheer beauty that our soul senses when we experience happiness and joy.  Let us build within our mind, our heart and our soul a "heaven" so splendid and so marvelous that our thoughts lift us above all the seeming negatives that confront us.  Let's look up above the physical and the material and affirm the greater thing still that we shall experience through the power of our mind in tune with the infinite Intelligence, Power and Spirit that we call G-d. With persistence plus passion for the good we desire we shall insure the positive results that we desire.

       From the great Ralph Waldo Emerson:  "To get up each morning with the resolve to be happy is to set our own conditions to the events of each day.  To do this is to condition circumstances instead of being conditioned by them."


Keep the faith!
