"The Art Of Being Yourself" 


The Way to a Wonderful Life Message for April 16, 2017


            "I Am the Resurrection and the Life," and in these simple, yet profound words of the Master Mind Jesus we can realize that Life is G-d and that the Power of the Infinite has been gifted to each of us to the degree that we accept it as so.  I Am, life, health, happiness, and wisdom and power.  No one can obstruct our consciousness without our consent and this is the realization that the Master Mind Jesus, through his teachings, was hoping we would develop.

             We shall embody the consciousness of the power within us and our ability to make "use" of the words that only we control, "I Am", by turning to wisdom and science and away from the "opinions" and "myths" of mankind's making.

            Today on this Easter Sunday and these last days of Passover, let us affirm for ourselves these words from the Wisdom Treatment gifted to us by Emma Curtis Hopkins, who was known as the "teacher of teachers":
I have never, as the judgment of Jesus Christ, accused the world, or myself, of being foolish or ignorant. 
I am not the result of inheriting foolishness and ignorance. I inherit the wisdom of God, my Father. 
I am not surrounded by a foolish and ignorant race. I am surrounded by the wisdom of God. 
My daily associations do not burden me and darken me by the weight of their foolishness, or the darkness of their ignorance. All is wisdom, from which I draw wisdom in every moment. 
I do not weigh down my own mind with willfulness in thinking evil. I know no weakness or failure in any part of my being. I am the spiritual light that cannot fail. 
I do not persist in thinking of myself as faltering or feeble in any part of my being. I see myself as strength, freedom and light. 
My strength is Good, and cannot be threatened with weakness, or yield to weakness, in any part of my being. 
My life is Good. It cannot be threatened with death in any part, nor fear death, nor yield to death. 
My health is that of the Spirit and cannot be threatened with disease and sickness, nor fear disease and sickness, nor yield to disease or sickness in any part of my being. 
I am ready to acknowledge to all around me, and to myself, that I am every whit whole. 
In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost, I pronounce myself healed, now and forever. 

Ms. Hopkins words reveal the era in which she lived just as the words and phrases in the holiest of books reveals the era in which the authors lived.  To use an old quote, "no man is an island" we realize that these people were influenced by the culture in which they lived and the level of intelligence that was revealed to them at the time.  But, for this we can be certain, as we develop within our mind the power of the "I Am" within us, we shall realize a passion for Life, for G-d, for our self and for our affairs that goes beyond anything we have realized before.

And so it is!

Rev. Henry Bates
