     "By accepting the notion of a dual power, that of Good and Evil, the inverted creative working of Fear is introduced with all its attendant train of evil things.  This is the eating of the deadly tree which occasions the Fall, and therefore the Redemption which requires to be accomplished is a redemption from Fear - not merely from this or that particular fear but from the very Root of Fear, which root is unbelief in the Love of God, the refusal to believe that Love alone is the Creating Power in all things, whether small beyond our recognition or great beyond our conception." - Thomas Troward, The Creative Process in the Individual

         It is our separation from each other that fosters our feeling of being separated form G-d.  And this in turn strengthens the false belief in duality; G-d and something else.  This can be thought of as the curse of mankind.  We can read from the Apostle John  (1 John 4:20) "If anyone says, “I love God,” and hates his brother, he is a liar; for he who does not love his brother whom he has seen cannot love God whom he has not seen.  The commandment we have from him (Jesus) is this:  whoever loves God must also love his brother."  These are strong words, but words of caution can be strong.  Jesus is telling us to put our consciousness on surveillance and let Love be love in us.  Emerson tells us that "Love is our highest word and the synonym for God" ... and in this we can rest assured that Love will always triumph over those who seek to divide us by the labels of the world such as race, religion, nationality, language, gender and sexual orientation.  In G-d there are no saints and no sinners, no inferior or superior, just the Living Spirit of G-d having a human experience.

      I have used this quote before from John Ruskin, the English writer and social reformer, but I believe it is so very important for us to be reminded of it; "He who offers God a second place, offers Him no place."  And too often well-intentioned people will allow religious dogma and judgment fill their mind and offer G-d a second place.  Love is a creative force as well as a giving, forgiving and living Spirit.  We can see evidence of it in our lives as we give, forgive and live in the spirit of G-d's Love.  And our greatest gifts can be realized as we consciously see G-d in all things and in everyone we come into contact with.

     From Isidora H. Minard's "Prove Me Now," we can read:  "When man lives in at-one-ment with God he understands himself, and understanding himself, he knows God and can say with Jesus:  "I and my Father are one."  In speaking of man as divine, as perfect, as created in the image and likeness of God, we do not mean it in the general acceptance of the term.  The external man, the fleshly or carnal self, prone to wander through experiences of dis-ease, impurity, sin, death, - this is the man of limitation; the false self which of itself has no reality, and is one the habitation wherein the true man, the Spirit of God, dwells, "Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth within you?"

     The Master Mind Jesus tells us that we can "overcome the world" but we must realize daily that there are not two powers, only One.  The world has told us that not only are we separate and apart from G-d but it has also given us the false concept that Jesus too, is separate and apart from us ... that "only son of God" insertion in the scriptures was well-intentioned but denied the very spirit of Jesus' teachings; "Our Father" he said and how can anyone deny the truth of these two powerful words.  We are all "of the Father and in the Father" and we understand this when we have the realization as Jesus did that "the Father is a Spirit" ... look at what Isidora Minard has to say about this:  "Man is the Son of Intelligence, therefore intelligent.  He loves, or is capable of loving, because the Essence of his being is Love; the inspirator of his highest idea, of his best impulse, is Universal Love.  Jesus spoke of himself many times as the "Son of Man" for man being created in His image and Likeness is Life, Power and Intelligence.  He is a part in the great Universal Whole.  Fully realizing this great Truth, each one individually can say as did Jesus of Nazareth, "I and my Father are one."  ... In everything we do there are two distinct voices, the accuser and the comforter, or the false witness and the Word of Truth.  We must overcome this accuser by the power of the Word.  Supposing you are beset by fear, you know there is but one power, Good; therefore this fear is not real.  At once affirm:  "I am filled with courage given of good."  Not only declare this or a similar statement once, but many times over and over until it becomes a part of your being.  You may not be able to accomplish the desire at once, but the persistent use of the Word will bring the true result, for, "If ye abide in me and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you."

     Now some will say this is not new, and yes, I agree, it is not new, but we must "renew" this truth in our mind and heart every day.  We must consistently and persistently strive to be in tune with the Infinite impulse of Love.  It will change our world in ways that at some time may have seemed too incredible to you.  We all have heard, "all that I need is a miracle" ... but this is not true, all that we need is a realization of G-d's Love within us and within every one of us ... and then seeming miracles become a normal and natural way of life.  Our heart symbolizes Divine Love ... let us learn to use our heart when the world's belief in duality weighs on our mind ... let us know that Love Is Love and is always right where we are.


Keep the faith!
. Henry Bates
