RevBates.tv Global - Weekly Message To The Masses (August 6, 2006)      

               " God has endowed us with creative power.  Therefore we cannot spend our time on the receiving end waiting for things to happen.  We are co-creators with God.  Our thinking and feeling must be unified with God Mind and God Love.  There is no substitute for spiritual initiative in every phase of our human expression.  [We are] to utilize the power that God has given us.  The right of choice must not be restricted to a rejection of what we do not want but must find its full concentrated force in creating what we do want.  We can create the kind of world that we want to live in." ... - Dr. Robert H. Bitzer, Collected Essays

      "I wouldn't be comfortable doing that" ... someone once told me.  And, I thought ... but why do you want to be comfortable?  I want a comfortable bed to sleep in.  A comfortable chair to sit in.  I want to live in a comfortable home.  But, other than that ... comfortable is not a word that appeals to me much.

       Comfortable ... can translate into dis-ease ... it makes a claim on us to not do anything that disturbs our life from its usual routine or patterns.  Seeking to be comfortable can hold us back from moving into experiences that broaden our awareness of life.  The Universe is inherent with growth and expansiveness ... and on and individual level we must be willing to grow and expand ... otherwise we are fighting against Life.  And it is a fight we cannot win ... for in Truth our fight is against the Infinite.

     The masses of people have been so conditioned to not being conscious of Omnipresence that they still believe that there is something outside of them that wants them to do something ... whether this is a friend, a co-worker, family member, etc.  ... but there is no one outside of us asking us to do or be anything but our Self.  Believe me ... we are far more powerful than most people think we are.  If we want to experience something or do something different in our lives, we will attract to us the person or the thing that brings it to our attention.  But ... we do this on a deeper level than the conscious mind ... and this is where the confusion comes in.

      The conscious mind ... functioning at the level of the world ... will convince us that there is a power operating outside of us that gives to us or takes from us.  This confused perception distorts the Truth of Being and defies the Omnipotence of consciousness.  There is nothing outside of us ... and everything and everyone in our life is reflecting our consciousness back to us.  This "mirror" ... so to speak ... reflects back to me my conscious and my subconscious desires and beliefs.  As we understand this, we can begin to understand our true Self more and more.  We can shed our old ideas and beliefs about life and truly begin to realize a greater potential within ourselves to expand our experiences of life, love and joy ... and even our level of success and prosperity.  The more we understand that the only power in our lives is always within us ... never outside of us ... there is an infinite possibility available to us, to use this power in a more creative, life-affirming, expansive way.  The world is filled with opportunities for great love, success, prosperity and adventure ... but we will never know this as long as we say "NO to Life" rather than "YES to Life!"

I believe that the level of our awareness of Omnipresence, Omnipotence and Omniscience ... is our level of consciousness.  We can't fake consciousness ... it is the "Un-seen that will be seen" in all of our lives.  It is like saying "I am in the Science of Mind" ... but our lives will reflect how much of the "Science of Mind is in us."  We can't deceive the Infinite ... and we can't cheat the Infinite ... and whatever it is that we want to deny about ourselves ... will be the very thing that denies us a greater happiness and joy in life.  Life is not meant to be a "comfort zone" ... life is meant to be dynamic, filled with progressive change and a greater advancement in our awareness of who and what we truly are.  And we won't find any of this in our comfort zone.

And So It Is!  

Maximum Love,
Rev. Bates
