- The Self-knowing Mind in God or in man. The Intelligence in the
Universe which reveals Itself in all Its creation. It is
impossible for us to conceive of Universal Consciousness, but we glimpse
it through our use of "the One Mind common to all individual
men." Also referred to as the Self-knowing Mind.
- Within our sub-conscious depths lie infinite wisdom, infinite power,
an infinite supply of all that is necessary. It is waiting there
for us to give it development and expression. But first we must
"recognize" the potentialities of our deeper mind for this
mind is the God-within us.
Our prayers are answered
when our "conscious mind" and our "sub-conscious
mind" are in agreement ... until there is an "agreement"
nothing significant changes.
From the Science of Mind: "Everyone
automatically attracts to him/her self just what he/she is, and we may
set it down that wherever we are, however intolerable the situation may
be, we are just where we belong. There is no power in the universe
but ourselves that can free us. Someone may help us on the road to
realization, but substantiality and permanence can come only through the
consciousness of our own life and thought. Man/woman must bring
him/her self to the place in mind where there is no misfortune, no
calamity, no accident, no trouble, no confusion; where there is nothing
but plenty, peace, power, Life and Truth. He/she should
definitely, daily (using his/her own name) declare the Truth about
him/her self, realizing that he/she is reflecting his/her statements
into Consciousness and that they will be operated upon by It.
This is called, in mysticism,
High Invocation; invoking the Divine Mind, implanting within It, seeds
of thought relative to oneself. And this is why some of the
teachers of olden times used to instruct their pupils to cross their
hands over their chests and say: "Wonderful, wonderful,
wonderful me!" definitely teaching them that as they mentally held
themselves, so they would be held. "Act as though I am and I
will be." -
Dr. Ernest Holmes
It is not enough to accept that we
are created in the image and likeness of God (Conscious Mind) ...
we must realize this Truth in our experiences and especially the
"image" that we have of ourselves (Sub-Conscious MInd).
Spiritual Strength is confidence and self-assurance. Without the
experience of God ... we cannot maintain a permanent sense of confidence
and self-assurance ... we will always be second-guessing ourselves or
even falling prey to the human ego emotions of superiority and
inferiority. This is why the Master Mind Jesus stated, "judge
not according to appearances" ... but if we are to judge then we
are to use righteous judgment ... right judgments always affirm the
Truth about us ... the Truth that within us is the potential for Divine
Expression ... as we "let go" and "let God" express
in the situations and conditions that concern us.
Far too many of us want to be more
comfortable and happier ... but we don't want to change ... an
unwillingness to change creates discomfort and depression ... opposites
of comfort and happiness ... it is the ideas and thoughts about
ourselves and our Life that must change, as the universe is constantly
changing and expanding and if we do not ... then we are living out of
alignment with the Natural order of Life. We use our Conscious
Mind to "direct" our Sub-Conscious Mind ... but if our mind is
filled with fear and intimidation ... our Sub-Conscious will block the
Good changes from being realized in our experiences.
Sub-Conscious will attract to us many, many opportunities to realize
greater Love, Happiness, Joy and Abundance ... and as we cultivate and
foster a greater image of ourselves using our Conscious Mind ... we will
have the confidence to accept more and more of every Good thing that
comes to us ... thanking God all the way!
So It Is!
