Rev. Dr. Henry Lee Bates - Archived Messages

RevBates.tv Global - Weekly Message To The Masses for April 26, 2009 

                      "Program yourself for health.  Program yourself for love.  Establish firmly in your subconscious mind that whenever you think of your body you think of it in terms of health.  Program yourself for opportunity so whenever you consider your future all you can see are great possibilities.  Program yourself for a marvelous consciousness of abundance so you are not caught up in lack and limitation.  Develop the feeling that every time you spend money you are spending it from unlimited abundance.  Whenever you think of money, think of it as continuous abundance and you will cancel out lack. .... program yourself spiritually to experience the sufficiency in you, to experience the best in you."  - Dr. Frank Richelieu, The Art Of Being Yourself

     It is absolutely true that we can condition our mind right now to think of possibilities.  As Dr. Schuller says, "be a possibility thinker!"  We can go beyond that which we have considered to be possible in the past ... and stretch our imagination.  What is the image we have of ourselves right now? Do we want to continue to live with this image?  Are we happy with the conditions and circumstances in our life right now ?  Do we really want to change our life?  We cannot change anything within our mind unless we really want to!  Most of us want change ... we want something more ... more money, more love, more peace, more success ... but are we willing to do more to get it?  That is the million-dollar question.

Whatever change we want to effect in our lives, we are the ones that must do it.  Other people can inspire us and lift us up ... but they can't "hold us up."  Being dependent on other people is no different than being dependent on drugs or alcohol ... they can only provide a "temporary high" ... they can't think for us ... and until we think the thought that changes the image that we have of ourselves and the condition of our life experience ... nothing changes.  And this requires work.   Work that we’re not used to … work that requires honesty and being authentic with ourselves … this work requires “self-examination” and a great deal of ”solitude” … both of which very few of us are accustomed to.  This is why the Master Mind Jesus and all the great mystics spent time in the “wilderness” … in places away from people, in solitude.

     Not everyone believes that they have the power to effect change in their lives.  We too often look to others for our answers and fail to realize … they don’t have “our answers” … they only have “their answers” … the answer to every problem or challenge that we face is “within us” … and we must work to reveal it.  And we can do it …  we all can - we just must "keep at it" until the way within our mind opens up.  And how do we know when this has happened?  We know it when an idea to have something, to be something, or to do something ... has such a powerful appeal to us in our mind that we must have it, must be it, or must do it.  The idea of it can be so insistent in our mind that nothing can distract us from it.  And we begin to act ... with persistence and with an insistence "in our mind" that it is ours.

    Let’s make the decision today to sign a new contract with Life.  Let’s impress this contract firmly in our mind and know that we cannot fail to achieve that which we have decided to do, to be, or to have.  Let’s not waver in our commitment to ourselves and to this glorious gift of life that G-d has given us.  Let’s not let our dreams disappear before we have lived them and enjoyed them, and replaced them with a greater dream still.

    Here in Palm Springs we repeat this "Power Affirmation" every Sunday morning.  Please say to yourself right now:

             There is a Power within me.
             That lifts my life to its highest level.
              It changes illness into health.
              It brings peace amidst turmoil.
              It brings success out of failure.
              And victory out of defeat.
              It brings companionship and happiness our of loneliness.
              It responds to me.
              For this is the Power that dwells within me!
                       And so it is!  Amen.

    As Dr. Frank Richelieu writes, “Program yourself spiritually to experience the sufficiency in you, to experience the best in you." 
The Presence of G-d within each of us waits patiently in silent repose, while we sign our new contract with life!


Keep the faith!
Rev. Dr. Henry Lee Bates
