Sometimes we come across books or movies or other written
materials that we just can’t wait to share with others.
After reading more of the writings of Mary Kupferle, a Unity
minister and author, I immediately wanted to share what I had read.
The beauty of her writings are the simplicity in which she
explains profound spiritual truths.
is taken from her article “God Never Fails” (she refers to G-d in
the traditional masculine vernacular) … "All
that we desire, all that we can ever envision or hope to attain is
already provided for us; it is already available and will ever be
awaiting our acceptance. This is true whether it concerns the body,
home, or business; whether conditions and
situations seem desperate and difficult; whether circumstances seem to
be hopelessly entangled and confused; or whether the attainment of the
desires and visions of our hearts seem impossible, beyond hope of
The only condition on which
this manifest good is dependent for complete outer expression is the
condition of consciousness. As explained by one Truth teacher and
writer, "The Spirit can do for us only what it can do through us.
Unless we are able to provide the consciousness, Spirit cannot make
the gift." If the consciousness is filled with impressions of
negative appearances, it is not the kind of consciousness that can
receive the good gifts that the Giver desires to offer to His beloved
sons. If the consciousness is full of doubt and permeated by anxiety
and fear, it is not the kind of consciousness that provides a free
channel for the overflowing Christ heritage of goodness.
There is something we can do, however, to provide the right
kind of consciousness, the receiving consciousness.

to our minds and hearts. The Spirit is more than eager and more than

we will simply let it do so without any human forcing of the

Jesus is the perfect example of the perfect receiving
consciousness. His manner, His attitude, His words, and His teachings
never bespoke strain, strife, personal power, or human willfulness.
His life is an expression of a perfect continual receiving from God.
He was the perfect channel, the perfect vessel, the perfect embodiment
through which God could move and have His being.
Most of us want to be good givers. We are eager to share all
the fine and lovely things of life with others, but we sometimes
forget that we must take the time and thought for receiving. Being a
good receiver is not a complicated task, but a matter of simple
application. As one Truth student puts it: "Take time, every day,
quietly to let God give to you. Be still, sit quiet, and simply say to
the loving Father, I
am ready to receive,
dear Father. I am ready to receive all the good You wish to give to
me. I am receiving, now."
Learn to be a good receiver. Become open and receptive to your
good through prayer, through affirming, "I am receiving. I am
receiving now." As you do so, you open the gates of your mind
and heart, you open the long closed passages of the soul, you enlarge
and expand the cramped quarters of your being until they are amply
ready to receive the bounty of God's goodness, prepared, and ready for
overflowing. Do not let yourself become concerned about whether you
have previously spoken, acted, lived in a manner worthy of receiving
God's good. Do not be anxious if you feel you may have taken many
wrong steps or perhaps misunderstood God's guidance or misinterpreted
His leadings, for nothing, absolutely nothing in the outer world, can
prevent your acceptance of God's good which is ever at hand, awaiting
No place that we may

No complication of outer circumstances can prevent this all-present
good from reaching you, from lifting and sustaining and helping you.
No human mistake can separate you from the constantly present goodness

discouraged if the results of your affirmations and prayers do not
appear to take the shape and form you think is right and advantageous.
There is nothing that God cannot make right, nothing He cannot
heal, restore, renew, supply, or provide if we will but become open,
receptive, and obedient to His workings. As we become quiet and still,
as we persistently and faithfully relax and let go and let God, we
present ourselves in an acceptable way to the Holy Spirit's anointing
of our consciousness.”
It is the truth for everyone that G-d never fails the ready-set-grow
consciousness. We must prepare ourselves in consciousness to
receive, to accept and to expect. It is no simple statement that
we don't get what we want ... we get what we expect!
SO IT IS!
