Mother's Day is Sunday, May 9th as everyone knows, so I thought it would
be a good idea to review one of the greatest lessons that most of us
have learned from our mothers ... and that is to "always tell the
truth." But as many of us learned during our childhood, the
truth can be subjective ... it can be altered based on an individual's
perceptions. Telling the truth can sometimes be uncomfortable and
oftentimes when we were children, the truth got us into trouble with our
mothers. But for most of us, it always turned out to be the best
way to go and so we learned that there is something very important about
always telling the truth.
When we begin to learn about
Spiritual Truth, once again, we find ourselves becoming uncomfortable
and uneasy ... Spiritual Truth as we learn is even more demanding on us
that just the simple truth. As we begin our study of Spiritual
Truth we find quickly that Mom's admonition to "always tell the
truth" was far easier. Mom taught us the awareness of truth
in the physical; in the words we speak and the actions we take.
Spiritual Truth goes beyond the visible to the Great Invisible.
From the Science of Mind Glossary: TRUTH
- That which is. It is the Reason, Cause and Power in and through
everything. It is Birthless, Deathless, Changeless, Complete,
Perfect, Whole, Self-Existent, Causeless, Almighty, God, Spirit, Law,
Mind, Intelligence, and anything and everything that implies Reality.
By a process of axiomatic reasoning, we arrive at the conclusion that
Spirit knows nothing outside Itself. The Truth is that which Is;
and being that which Is, It must be Infinite and All. Being
Infinite and All, the Truth can have nothing outside Itself, other than
Itself, or unlike Itself, by which we divide Itself; consequently, the
Spirit is Indivisible, Changeless and Complete within Itself.
Itself is all that is - both Cause and Effect, the Alpha and the Omega.
When we pray or do a treatment, we pray from the demonstration
... in other words, as the Master Mind Jesus taught, we pray
"knowing that it is." If I am praying for money, I speak
the Truth about money. For example, I "realize" that
there is Infinite Abundance of every Good thing in the Universe ...
there is more money than anyone could ever spend ... then I pray
"accepting" that which is mine, giving thanks that I
"have it" and then release my prayer to God, Infinite
Intelligence, knowing that the money I have just given thanks for will
show up in the right and perfect time. Now, the truth that Mom
talked about might sound something like "I am so broke I don't have
two dimes to rub together" ... but, that is not The Truth ... it is
a "limited understanding" of Truth ... and as our minds stay
focused on the "limited" ... we are limited to what we have
... we may have money coming to us from some unknown source ... someone
may feel inclined to give us some money ... or we may have an
opportunity to earn the money we need ... but ... as long as our focus
is on the truth ... rather than The Truth ... then we probably won't
realize one penny of it. As we can read in scripture, "he who
has little will have even less and he who has much shall have even more
still." This statement represents the difference between the
truth about what we have and The Truth of what we have. Keep in
mind, "it is the Father's Good pleasure to give us the
kingdom" ... but even God cannot give to those who won't accept
that it is.
As we celebrate Mother's Day we can
realize that Mom pointed us in the right direction ... but it has always
been up to us to open our mind to the Greater Truth that unlocks the
door to Infinite Good and Freedom from limitation. Mom, like God,
wants us to have every Good thing we can imagine for ourselves ... but
just like God, it is not enough for Mom to want it for us ... it is up
to us to accept it ... and we begin our acceptance by Always Telling The
So It Is!
