is my firm belief that most of what we will learn in this Life will be
learned from people, and many of the lessons that we are to learn from
people will at first, seem challenging. But, it doesn't have to be
challenging if we understand consciousness. God Is All There Is,
and All Of God There Is in our individual lives ... is in our
Consciousness. In other words, every person, place and thing in
our experience was attracted to, entered, created and made visible
through our consciousness. This is the Truth, always has been the
Truth and always will be the Truth.
Now ... we can dispute this and say, "I didn't want that
so-and-so in my life," but that will never be the Truth. No
matter what anyone may seemingly appear to be, to be doing or how they
may affect us ... THEY ARE VERY NECESSARY ... for us to experience.
The Infinite Spirit, God, that expresses Its Life through us and as us
... will have Its experience whether we want to or not ... for it is
that Spirit of God that will continue to DEMAND THAT WE LOVE THIS LIFE
AND ALL THINGS IN IT ... including the experiences and the people
that we would just as soon send to another planet on a one-way ticket.
The more we "resist" the experience or the person, the
more we fight it/them or deny it/them ... the more important it becomes
that we LOVE IT/THEM.
I studied with Dr. Domenic A. Polifrone for over three years and
I began my ministerial studies with him, and from him I have learned
some of my greatest lessons about consciousness in regards to human
relationships. Dr. Domenic demonstrated many people in his life
and I am so fascinated at how diverse they are ... rich people, poor
people, successful people and people with little success, people rich in
spirit, people poor in spirit, people filled with fear and people filled
with confidence, trustworthy people and people who trust no one.
Dr. Domenic's friends, acquaintances, assistant ministers and
congregations stretched across the spectrum of human personalities.
I am amazed at how he handled such great diversity ... but on a
spiritual level ... I understand completely.
In Religious Science we learn to "depend on Principle, not
person, place or thing." And this is the way to demonstrate
greater peace, happiness and harmony in our experiences. The
lesson here is that if we remained focused on Principle ... the people,
places and things will take care of themselves. I personally
witnessed Dr. Domenic using this Principle and it demonstrated for him
magnificently on more than one occasion involving both people and
So many of us want to "fight" our consciousness ...
deny Its own creations ... but fighting and denials will not change
anything ... the only thing that can change anything in our experience
is a "change in consciousness." So here is our answer
... and the change must be ... to grow and expand the amount of Love in
our consciousness... the greater our capacity to Love ... the more of
Love we will see manifest in our experiences ... now this Love may
appear to be greater prosperity ... greater health ... more harmonious
working conditions ... more friendships ... and even more loving
companionship ... but without raising our conscious awareness of the
Power Of Love ... we will live a life of stagnation and frustration ...
with little progress in our spiritual life ... we may go two steps
forward into success and prosperity ... but we will surely end up three
Dr. Ernest Holmes coined the
statement, "Love points the Way .. and Law makes the Way
possible." Perhaps the reason Dr. Holmes statement is
misunderstood by so many is that they have not taken the time to truly
understand Principle ... and the Principle is, "Depend on Love
(Principle) ... not persons, places or things." Love Is the
Power ... Love Is God ... Love Is Always Present for God Is Always
Present ... Love will always find the Loving Way to create everything we
can imagine. "Love points the Way and Love makes the Way
possible," Love and Law ... they are the same thing ... and if you
don't understand how to demonstrate this in your life experiences ...
ask Dr. Domenic ... he will tell you how!
So It Is!
Love Use Me In Its Own Good Way,
