As we embody the statement from the Master Mind Jesus, "it is done
unto you as you believe," we can rest assured that our beliefs are
creating our experiences. We don't have to ask anyone to help us
.. we don't have to endlessly seek for answers ... and we don't have to
knock on doors to find out what it is that is creating our experiences
... this statement gives us the answer.
I have had
so many people tell me that they pray scientifically or do treatment and
nothing in their life is changing. And for so many of us this is
true. The conditions and circumstances in our lives cannot change
as long as we continue to hold the same beliefs and thoughts about the
conditions and circumstances. In Religious Science we understand
the mystical statement, "Judge not according to the appearance, but
judge righteous judgment." In other words, we must look at
the conditions and circumstances in our lives and "know" that
what they "appear" to be ... is what we think about them ...
and as we change our thoughts and beliefs about them ... change occurs.
Now, this does not mean that by some stroke of "magic"
everything "appears" as we would like it to be ... but
instead, everything begins to "appear" as it
"rightly" is ... Good and Very Good. For example, if we
hold the idea of poverty, our experiences will testify to the idea of
poverty by "appearances" of lack and limitation. Now,
this "idea" of poverty may show up in our finances, lack of a
job, lack of fulfilling relationships, lack of good health, etc.
... but, it is just an "appearance" of a "false
idea." When we judge righteously ... we know that we are One
with Infinite Abundance, Infinite Supply ... and as we embody this
Truth, and "see beyond the appearance" to the Infinite
Invisible Good that lies waiting in "silent repose," our
acceptance and "right" judgment ... puts us in the flow of
Far too many of us hold on to our
beliefs that hold us in limitation. We fail to align ourselves
with the Infinite by thinking small, holding onto ideas of smallness,
ideas of inferior and superior. I receive so many prayer and
treatment requests that are filled with "limiting ideas."
We must "open our minds" and let go of the old beliefs and
ideas that create conditions and circumstances that cause us suffering,
illness and frustration. If we desire to experience love in our
lives, we must give up any ideas that we are not lovable or that others
are not lovable. Our desires for success are thwarted by our ideas
of inferiority or fear of not being capable. We must know that
whatever it is that we are seeking to demonstrate in our life ... with
the desire is the ability to make the demonstration. Our success
will be illusive if we hold onto ideas of comparison and competition.
"That which I am to do best, only my Maker can teach me," but
we must be "open to the lessons." We must be willing to
step into something new without anyone's permission or approval ... we
must act from the strength (confidence and assurance) of our own
The mystical statements of the Bible have
"power" to them only as we use them with "right
judgment." The Master Teacher declared, "the kingdom of
heaven is within you." But whether it is or not doesn't
matter if we don't believe it. Religious Science teaches that we
are surrounded by this Infinite Power for Good ... but we must
"know" that It Is Good ... in All-Ways and All-Things.
We must create within our own consciousness a belief that we are One
with the Infinite Good ... that nothing about us is inferior or superior
to anyone or anything. We must not allow ourselves to be limited
... in any way. Whatever it is that we believe is "between us
and our Good" ... we must "see it and believe it to be
nothingness." We must be willing to sit in the Silence for
hours at a time if necessary ... to get to a "conviction in
consciousness" that we have the very thing we desire ... the very
thing that we seek ... the very thing that we pray for. We must
"ask, knowing that It Is," in other words we must "think
from the results .. not to them." Anything less ... is
words we can state about any situation is ... is that It Is Good ...
that God Is Present ... and our Good Is Un-folding Magnificently ...
right Now ... this is an activity of Mind that demonstrates experiences
of happiness, joy and success ... it is an activity of Mind that
"knows" the Infinite. As we "forget everything we
think we know" and align ourselves with Infinite Mind our ideas of
limitation and lack will give way to richer, more abundant experiences.
So It Is!
