Ernest Holmes wrote the "Science of Mind" in 1926, and a quick
look at this amazing book will quickly identify Ernest Holmes as a man
who not only understands the work of the Master Jesus, but who dwelled
so deep into the Teachings of the Radical Rabbi as to identify with the
nature of Jesus' Greatest Works. In an age where most of the
religious leaders were not much more than parroting the words written in
scripture, Dr. Holmes actually identified the
concepts which Jesus developed in order to demonstrate the miracles
attributed to Him. Dr. Holmes realized that Jesus was not doing
what He did in some random unidentifiable way ... but that Jesus had
looked to the Universal Laws, the Science of the Universe, and
identified the immutable, universal natural laws that apply to
everything and everyone.
one can deny the existence of gravity. It works for everybody ...
liars and cheats ... honest and noble ... it does not deny anyone the
activity of its nature. The Power of God, Infinite Good ... works
in the same manner ... it is the nature of God to be Infinitely Good ...
and it is the nature of God ... to be Infinitely Present ... just like
gravity. This is not something to accept by faith ... but by
science. When the Master Mind Jesus stated, "it is done unto
you as you believe (decide)," He was stating that we
"activate" God in our Life in the same manner as we
"activate" gravity ... we align ourselves with God's energy
... and this energy ... something akin to confidence and self-assurance
... creates a pattern in our life... if we don't like the patterns that
exist ... then we must "lift up" the level of energy that we
are "activating." Low-energy brings sickness, depression
and limitation ... higher energy brings health and enthusiasm and
attracts those who vibrate at a higher energy level into our experience
... you know ... successful, happy people ... not the ones who want to
tell us their tired stories of shame, blame and disappointment.
once stated to his audience that the "poor will always be with
us." But ... unless we want to join them in their poor
spirits and poor attitudes ... we would be better served in raising our
energy level and cease attracting them into our lives. Nobody
loves misery more than a miserable person ... they will argue for it ...
blame everyone else for their miseries ... and oftentimes will actually
denigrate those who try to help them. This is why Jesus stated
that we may have to "leave our father and mother" to follow
Him ... what He meant of course was that we would have to leave all
those who try to share their misery with us.
The Science of Mind,
like the Teachings Of Jesus, teach us to identify the "beliefs and
ideas" that we hold onto that keep us in bondage to our misery...
and gives us principles to use to move out of them.
Recently I visited a
Baptist Church and the minister was "preaching" about the
prodigal son ... and went into detail how this son of a very rich man
left his father's house and ended up hopeless and eating with the pigs
in a hog-pen. (In the Science of Mind we understand that in
Reality the son had created a separation from God in his mind.)
This minister looked out at his congregation and stated, "you are
all living in a hog-pen experience." Then he went on to state
that "Jesus is coming again ... as a matter of fact He could come
any second." Personally anyone who believes they are living
in a hog-pen experience is way beyond caring about whether Jesus is
coming or not ... and probably would argue with Him if He did!
Science of Mind teaches that we are all "perfect ideas in the Mind
of God" and if we shift our beliefs to this Truth ... we will
experience a greater Heaven right here where we are ... as Jesus stated
... "the kingdom of heaven is within you." Now, the good
Baptist minister didn't mention that ... but I will just bless the hell
he lives in anyway.
So It Is!
