work in Religious Science is to "change our thinking and change our
life." We know that "it is done unto us as we
believe," so we must change our beliefs in order to move out of
experiences that are less-than-wonderful. Now, this is not some
Pollyanna teaching that teaches that we "see good" where there
is none ... in Religious Science we know that the Good is All-ways
Present .. we just are not "seeing" It. God is always
Being God ... no matter what we are experiencing.
is an impulse within each of us that wants to experience more Good ...
even lavishly wealthy people want more Good ... everyone does ... and it
has nothing to do with the measure of our wealth ... it has everything
to do with our "state of mind." Many of us reading the
statement above almost immediately thought of something negative... but
... that is the thing we must change. Mama could easily say there
would be days of success, happiness, joy and prosperity ... days of wine
and roses. It is all in our mind ... and it is done unto us as we
allow the thoughts and ideas that haven't served us in the past to
remain resident in our consciousness. We must "feed our
subconscious" with the positive, with faith, hope and love...
abundant, rich ideas.
Mother's Day is a very positive idea. It is a great idea to honor
our mothers, to be appreciative for the role they have played in our
lives. To be grateful that they were the instrument through which
the Divine expressed Itself as us. As we understand and gain an
awareness of the nature of God, Infinite Spirit, we understand that each
of us are mothers. Each of us have the opportunity to give
"birth" to new ideas, new success and new experiences of
happiness and love. But ... we must attend to our "good
ideas" in the same manner that a mother attends to her child.
We must be willing to nurture and care for our ideas enough to allow
them to unfold and grow. Many of us will have great ideas ...
ideas that will bring us greater success, happiness and wealth ... but
we "abort" the ideas rather than give "birth" to
them out of our fear, doubts and negativity... we put our faith in the
negative, in the limitations, rather than in the Good ... and we
experience what we have faith in.... negativity and limitation.
Let's begin today, Mother's Day, to give
"life" to the Good ideas that appear in our mind and in our
thoughts. Let's open our minds continually and consistently to be
receptive to Good ... to Good Ideas that bring us joy, happiness,
greater health, wealth and love.
So It Is!
