Everything, including each breath we take, is a movement of Mind or
Spirit; the words are synonymous and describe the activity of
infinite Intelligence. The Infinite is the Source of Creation
Itself and as our mind is eternally in tune with the infinite Mind
we create our life conditions and experiences through this osmosis
of our mind filtering the Mind of the Infinite as It moves through
our consciousness. In other words, G-d is not personal to us,
but does personalize Itself through us as the Law of Cause and
Effect in action.
This truth was elaborated upon in a book
titled "The Impersonal Life" first published as the author
being named as "Anonymous" who was in fact Joseph Sieber
Benner. From his book: "We have, then, first the Idea in
the mind; then the Desire to bring the Idea into outer
manifestation. So much for the relation. Now for the
process of realization.
In accordance with the definiteness with which the picture of the
Idea is held in the mind, and the extent to which the Idea
possesses the personality, does its creative Power, impelled by
Desire, proceed with Its work. This It does by compelling the
mortal mind to think out or to imagine (image in), or, in other
words, to build mental forms into which I can pour, as into a
vacuum, the Impersonal, elemental, vital substance of the Idea.
When the Word is spoken, either silently or audibly, consciously
or unconsciously, this substance at once begins to materialize
Itself, by first directing and controlling the consciousness and
all the activities of both mind and body, and of all minds and all
bodies connected with or related to the Idea, for remember, all
consciousness, and all minds and all bodies are Mine (Source/G-d), and are not
separated but are One and wholly Impersonal, ---and then so
attracting, directing, shaping and molding conditions, things and
events that, sooner or later, the Idea actually comes forth into
definite, tangible manifestation.
So it is that every thing, every
condition, every event that ever transpired, was first an Idea in
the mind. It was by desiring, by thinking, and by speaking forth the
Word, that these ideas came into visible manifestation.
Think this out and prove it for
This you can do, if you will, by
taking any Idea that comes and following it out through the above
process to realization; or by tracing back any feat you have
accomplished, any picture you have painted, any machine you have
invented, or any particular thing or condition now existing, to the
Idea from which it sprang.
This is the plan and process of all
true thinking, and therefore of all Creation."
When we think
of the possibilities and the opportunities that this opens up for us
it is almost overwhelming. We can condition our mind to draw
to our conscious mind ideas that present us with opportunities and
possibilities. All we must do is enter into the process with a
sense of confidence and joy and perhaps as sense of adventure.
mystical Ernest Holmes gifted us with a good meditation for
... say these words to yourself with conviction: “My
opportunities are unlimited. There is a Divine Urge to express. It
permeates me and fills all space and all people. All of my affairs
are in Its hands. To It are clearly visible the best ways, methods
and means for my greater expression. I leave my affairs in the hands
of this principle, and I co-operate with It."
“Today the possibilities of my experience are unlimited. The
Spirit flows through me, inspiring me and sustaining that inspiration.
I have ability and talent and I am busy using them. This talent is
divinely sustained and marketed under a Universal plan of right
lies open to me — rich, full, abundant. My thought, which is my
key to life, opens all doors for me. I am one with Infinity,
Divinity. I realize this unity. I proceed on my way as one who knows
that G-d goes with him into an eternal day of infinite privilege. I
have only to open the portals of my soul and accept that which is
ready to express through me. Today I fling these portals wide; today
I am the instrument through which life flows.”
is exciting even for those of us who have read similar instructions
many times. Let us know that our mind can be renewed with this
inspiration from the Spirit that Lives through us. Let us know
that our every persistent thought or desire for good is impelling to
receive it, to experience it , to know that it can be ours.
on these words from the mystical Ernest Holmes and from the ancient
wisdom: “Nothing is real to us unless
we make it real. Nothing can touch
us unless we let it touch us. Refuse to have the
feelings hurt. Refuse to receive anyone’s condemnation. In the independence
of your own mentality, believe and feel that
you are wonderful. This is
not conceit, it is the truth. What can be more wonderful than the
manifestation of the Infinite
Mind? “Awake thou that
sleepest, and arise from the dead,
and Christ shall give thee light.” “Prove me now herewith, saith
the Lord of Hosts, if I will not open you the windows of heaven, and
pour you out a blessing, that there shall not be room enough to
receive it.” “Be firm and ye shall be made firm.” “Act as
though I am and I will be.” Onlook thou the Deity and the Deity
will onlook thee.” As
thou hast believed, so be it done.” “Ask and
it shall be given unto you.” “So shall my word be that goeth
forth out of my mouth
— it shall prosper.”
And so it is!
