Weekly Message To The Masses (May 16, 2004)         

         "The Lord is my Light and my Salvation; whom shall I fear?  the Lord is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?  Psalm 27:1

          From Dr. Joseph Murphy:  "Who is your Lord and master this very moment? Your Lord is your predominant, mental attitude; it is your conviction or belief about yourself, people, and things; this Lord can be a tyrant.  For example, if your mood is now one of resentment, that is your Lord or tyrant that governs all of your actions and all phases of your life.  If you want to invest some money, buy a new home, or some property, while in this attitude, you will do the wrong thing and say the wrong thing, because your predominant mood is negative.  The law is:  "As within, so without."  You are fearing your good, and you would react negatively.  Fear is a lack of faith or trust in God, which is a denial of His Omnipotence.

       "The Lord is my light and my salvation."  The Lord" referred to is the Lord God, or the law of God or good. To put the law of good into operation, -thereby  banishing fear once and for all, -enthrone in your mind the thoughts of power, courage, and confidence.  These thoughts will generate a corresponding mood or feeling, which will banish the arch enemy of your success and health.

        Fear, this self-made enemy of yours, must be completely destroyed before the Lord God can shine through you.  Your fear is the cloud that hides the sunshine of God.  Men have made personal devils out of fear of the past, the present, and the future." -
from Supreme Mastery Of Fear

Dr. Murphy's teaching is simple and it is the same teaching to be found in the Science of Mind and the teachings of Jesus.  Fear must be eliminated from our mind ... it is the only devil we will ever have to deal with as it is the only thing that stands between us, in our mind, from the Omnipotence of God.  Fear is faith in a power other than God ... or, oftentimes, fear that God is not going to answer our prayers, provide us with what we seek, or give us what we ask for.  Fear is all too often the answer to our prayer ... for the prayer and the One praying are One in the same ... as we can read above, if our attitude or state of mind is fear-full ... than fear becomes fulfilled in our experience ... as failure.

       There is no failure in God because there is no fear in God ... and as we approach Life with this in mind we begin to understand that our ideas and desires for Good are but impulses from the Infinite for us to "accept" more Good ... to ask and "know" that we have it ... to seek "knowing" that we will find the answers to every seeming problem we are confronted with ... as we "feed" these ideas of Truth repetitively to our sub-conscious ... we begin to eliminate fear from our consciousness.

     Now ... to go a step further we declare, "there is no failure in God" ... and therefore "there is no failure in me."  This is easy to understand but, once again these declarations may take repetition for them to be embodied and we must have a clear understanding of why this is so.  We can explain to ourselves that we know the Truth ... that we are "in" this Omnipresence of God ... "in" the Presence of God there is no fear and nothing to fear.  Our fears are but doubts gone ballistic in our conscious minds!  ... thank God we know what to do with them!

 And So It Is! 

Maximum Love,
Rev. Hank Bates
