RevBates.tv Global - Weekly Message To The Masses for June 19, 2011 

                       "What was it that Jesus taught which aroused the wrath of the Priests and the Rulers?  What was it that made them demand His blood?  NOT the doctrine of the One God.  NOT the teachings of love instead of hate.  But the fact that He went up and down the length and breadth of the land teaching that all men were equally the Sons of God.  That would never do.  That would ruin their system, spread discontent, cause uprisings against their authority.  It must be stopped at all cost. ... You don't need to stumble and grope.  You can call upon the Creative Force at will.  There are three steps necessary:
First, to realize that you have the power.
Second, to know what you want.
Third, to center your thought upon it with singleness of purpose.
           To accomplish these steps takes only a fuller understanding of the Power-that-is-within-you.  ... So, let us make use of the dynamo, which is you.  What is going to start it working?  Your Faith, the faith that is begotten of understanding.  Faith is the impulsion of this power within.  Faith is the confidence, the assurance, the enforcing truth, the knowing that the right idea of life will bring you into the reality of existence and the manifestation of the All power.
"
- Robert Collier, The Secret Power

      I must confess that up until last Sunday I had only read Robert Collier's biography and not too much more.  He was born in St. Louis, Missouri and his father was the son of the founder of Collier's Publishing, notably, Collier's Magazine.  After studying metaphysics extensively, Robert Collier became one of the most prolific publishers of practical psychology books.  Self-help books is what we call them now.  All of what I have read of Robert Collier's writings, I identify as the truth.  Truth is Truth is Truth ... and all the great teachers from Krishna to Buddha to Isaiah to Jesus were all teaching the Truth that was revealed to them.  

     This power-within us is an impartation of G-d, Infinite Spirit, it is the image and likeness of the Divine.  It is the Father that the radical Jesus called us to give our attention to:  (Matthew 6:33) "But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you" and He went further and stated (Luke 17:21) "Neither shall they say, Lo here! or, lo there! for, behold, the kingdom of God is within you."    Spirit is Mind and Mind is the Omniscient of G-d, the intelligence, wisdom and creative force within G-d and within us.  Our mind draws from the Mind of G-d and the Master Mind Jesus' revelation that "the kingdom of God is within you" has been dismissed by both religion and science throughout history.  The "key" to the radical Jesus' teaching is, "is" ... "the kingdom of God is within you" ... not up in the sky ... not withheld by anyone including G-d ... not subject to reward and punishment ... but subject to our own belief and faith.  We have allowed religion and fear to blind us to the power that is available to us as we have been convinced that we are separate and apart from this power rather than capable of unifying with it ... and religion has perpetuated this lie.

     When we look at Collier's three steps, I believe that to "know what we want" is to know what G-d is desiring to express through us.  Unless we know what we want, by being more conscious of our desires, we can realize "that we have the power" ... but we can't make use of it without knowing what we want to use it for.  And knowing what we want isn't as simple as the words may imply ... we have to seek to find within ourselves what we really want.  And, when we make this decision, then the power that we have become aware of can be used to achieve the thing that we want.  We are guided and directed by the Spirit through our mind; through our desires, through what is appealing to us, and through the images in our mind that are created by these desires and thoughts.  We must pay attention to them for there is a pattern of desire and thought that will lead us to that which is ours to do, to have, or to be.  

     Emerson wrote in his class essay, "Self Reliance" that "G-d has made each person unique and, by extension, given each person a unique work to do. To trust one's own thoughts and put them into action is, in a very real sense, to hear and act on the voice of G-d."  To do this, is to center our thought on the thing desired with a singleness of purpose.  We cannot demonstrate something while our mind is being distracted by this and that ... we must have a singleness of purpose so that the power that we are using is directed to that which is most important to us ... that which we know that we want.

       We can remind ourselves of the words of the radical Jesus, "All that the Father hath is mine" ... and we can know that as we have faith in this power within us, that is greater than that which is in the world ... and discover what it is that we truly want ... and pursue it with a singleness of purpose in our mind ... we can know that all that the Father hath is yours, mine and ours ... to accept and to receive so that we may live the good life now."

AND SO IT IS!

Keep the faith!
Rev. Dr. Henry Lee Bates
