The Way to a Wonderful Life Message for June 4, 2017


          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 yourself.
         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.

         The mystical Ernest Holmes gifted us with a good meditation for opportunity ... 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 action."
“Life 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.

This 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.

Let us think 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!
