RevBates.tv Global - Weekly Message To The Masses for July 22, 2007 

             "To believe your own thought, to believe that what is true for you in your private heart is true for all men, - that is genius. ... Trust thyself: every heart vibrates to that iron string.  Accept the place the divine providence has found for you, the society of your contemporaries, the connexion of events.  Great men have always done so ... " - Ralph Waldo Emerson, Self Reliance

       Some people are intimidated by those who have a healthy sense of confidence and self-assurance.  And often people who exude confidence are considered arrogant or egotistical.  But arrogance and confidence are very different states of consciousness.  Arrogance is derived from a sense of low self-esteem and lack of confidence.  A healthy humility is a good thing in our relationship with God ... but, we must never lose sight of the Truth that we are expressing the Life of God ... and in this knowing we must "see ourselves as God sees us."

Emerson wrote, "To believe your own thought, to believe that what is true for you in your private heart is true for all men, - that is genius." ... but, to the world, genius is not often the conclusion.  Instead, the world will often want to "shame" or find fault with the person who reaches this conclusion in their mind.  The Master Mind Jesus even cautioned us to not "cast our pearls before swine" ... in other words, some things are best kept to one's self.  And as many of the great metaphysicians have stated, it is best to keep what is between us and God in secret until it is made manifest in the physical realm.

     Emerson's great instruction was for us to stop holding a sense of separation from the One Mind ... to "trust" our thoughts ... to have great confidence in what we believe to be true.  We are all using the same Mind ... and we are always receiving from It.  We receive from It, the thoughts, words and imaginings that we "accept" from It. 
And here we find something new that we can use as part of scientific prayer or spiritual mind treatment ... a technique the world would call "shameless self-promotion."  Why do I refer to it as "shameless self-promotion?"  ... it is because for most of us, the words that we use are not "power words" ... and this is why for many people their treatments or prayers, do not manifest in any great way.  Sure, most people will do prayer or treatment for success and they will experience an increase in success ... but for most, the increase is minimal ... and temporary.  Why?  Because their treatments do not have enough power and authority in them ... they contain far too much humility ... and therefore the "increase" is minimal and transient because there has been no great impression made upon the subconscious mind.

  When we speak or think our prayers or treatments, we must "impress upon" the subconscious the ideas that we choose to experience, and "impress upon" the subconscious that we are ready to accept that which we are declaring to be so.  We must be definite about "who we are" and "what we accept for and about our self." 
Here is an example of how to use "shameless self-promotion" in a prayer-treatment for Success:  
"Realizing that God has created greatness within me, I know that my success is always assured.  All that I do is accomplished from the brilliant ideas that flow from the One Mind through my mind.  I embody the genius and ability to always recognize successful ideas and the right direction in which to expand the great success that is mine now.  God has gifted me with a brilliant mind and I consciously and consistently have the awareness to distinguish between good ideas and great ideas ... and I always claim the great idea as mine.  I am a role model for success and I continually receive recognition for the highest level of performance from the highest levels of leadership in my profession.  Today and every day, I expect the best and I receive the best that Life has to offer me.  My words, my thoughts and my imagination are alive with success, accomplishment and genius ... and I manifest success, accomplishment and genius in all things and in all ways, now."

     The purpose of prayer or spiritual treatment is to demonstrate God, or Good, in our experience.  The greater our consciousness of Good, the greater the Good we can demonstrate.  But, greatness is not for the timid ... or those who are hindered by "false humility" ... it is for those of us who are willing to shamelessly self-promote ourselves and to promote the ideas that we choose to manifest in our experience ... within our own mind.  And when these ideas are established in our consciousness ... they will exist in our experience!


Keep the faith!
