RevBates.tv Global - Weekly Message To The Masses (July 11, 2004)         

         "I, I am the LORD, and besides me there is no savior. I declared and saved and proclaimed, when there was no strange god among you; and you are my witnesses," says the LORD. "I am God, and also henceforth I am He; there is none who can deliver from my hand; I work and who can hinder it?" ... from the Book of Isaiah, Holy Bible

            "Stay with the ONE and never deviate from It, never leave It for a moment. Nothing else can equal this attitude."
... from Dr. Ernest Holmes, Science of Mind

            One of the "seemingly" most difficult metaphysical Principles to embody is OMNIPRESENCE ... that God Is All and All Is God.  Few people have ever mastered this Principle to any great degree and if we did, believe me, the world would know who we are.  Like all metaphysical principles, this Principle must un-fold within our consciousness ... and as we strive to be more persistent in expanding our consciousness ... this Principle will un-fold in greater measure in our experiences.  Why?  Because what we "observe" we be-come.  As we observe beauty in our world, our thoughts and ideas follow the idea of beauty that we observe.  The same for loving-kindness ... joy and compassion.  There is not one prosperity book or instruction that does not advise us to "observe" the prosperity and abundance that is evident in the world around us ... the reason being is that as we "observe" it ... we be-come more prosperous and accept greater abundance in our lives.  It is only our focus on lack and limitation that brings us into a greater state of poverty or financial restriction.


        
When we "observe" the Good; the beauty, the joy, the abundance, the loving-kindness ... we are in Truth ... "observing God."  We can read in scripture, "Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on Thee."  It is a simple, yet profound, Principle.  Keep our mind "stayed on the Good" and we will find perfect peace with our finances, our career success and our relationships.  But ... we must act on this Principle ... and refrain from the world's ideas of Good and something else ... there is not God and something else ... there is only God ... All God, All The Time ... even when our deepest human feelings and fears are attempting to "cause" us to believe in something else ... that something else is nothing-ness ... a no-thing ... an illusion of a mind that has been habitually creating an acceptance of God and something else to the point that our mind begins a demand on us to acknowledge the something else ... the nothing-ness.  We have created the something else ... it is not of God ... it is not Reality ... it is a creation derived from the concept of duality.  If we see seeming "evil" ... then we are separating God from the situation or condition.  Now, for many of us this is "DEEP" ... almost "TOO DEEP" ... but it is the Truth in the Absolute ... and as we train our minds to think closer and closer to the Absolute ... and transcend our earth-bound conditions ... we become ever closer to the ONE ... God.

         
Separating ourselves from each other ... separates us from God quicker than almost anything.  And we do it in so many ways ... rather than appreciate our differences ... we want to make someone or something inferior or superior.  There is a title to a book, "What You Think of Me Is None of My Business" ...  that word "YOU" is "self-defeating" ... there is no "you" ... there is only me reflecting me back to me ... in other words ... It Is God ... showing me what I think of myself ... out of loving-kindness so that I may choose to change my thoughts and ideas about me.  This is true on an individual level as well as a on a Universal level ... we can look at the world for proof of this Truth.  

        "As we create within ourselves the ability to withhold love from others ... to justify our judgments rather than accept All as God appearing in our lives ... we create a separation from God that cannot be healed until we heal that which we have created in our ignorance of the Omnipresence of God." 
We must NEVER allow arrogance or defensiveness to block us from Omnipresence.  Always remember ... arrogance and ignorance can be the same thing ... just spelled differently.  There is no shame in being ignorant of something that we do not know ... someone once wrote, "we are ignorant until the day of enlightenment."  This is true for all of us.

         
We must insist that God Is Present in all things and in all people ... creating a conviction in our minds ... and as we learn to accept that God Is Present ... rather than believe ... out of fear ... that there is something other than God ... Omnipresence will BE absolutely revealed ... in surprising and wonderful ways.

And So It Is!
