LAW - Mind In Action. LOVE - A Synonym for God.
Dr. Ernest Holmes in the Science of Mind, reached the conclusion that
without Love, Law becomes so impersonal that there is no real
"life" to it. Love must point the way or otherwise Law
can be easily manipulated by ego and bring emptiness and dissatisfaction
with the very things we think will bring us greater joy and peace.
It is possible to demonstrate through Law (Mind) alone for there are no
limits to Law. The Law is a blind force,
like gravity, and whatever goes into the subjective state of our thought
tends to return again as some condition - good or bad. The
Law operates with perfect precision - believe and focus your thoughts on
something and it brings it into manifestation (form). We must
never focus on that which we do not desire to experience for our
attention gives it life and brings it "alive" in our
As we embrace God's unconditional Love in our consciousness, it becomes
impossible to focus on fear, sickness, poverty, limitation and
restriction. We must totally convince ourselves that God's Love is
unconditional and that we are surrounded by it, maintained by it and
sustained by it. This overwhelming Power of
Love can only work for us by working through us. As we
allow it to work through us it out-pictures into our experiences. As
within, so without.
But often we don't believe that this is so. We think that somehow
we aren't worthy of God's Love, let alone God's unconditional Love.
But this can never be so. This is but a "false belief"
that has no foundation in Truth but a vicious lie of the race-conscious
belief in a God that rewards and punishes. The Law is no respecter
of persons. The foundation for this Principle is found in
scripture, "the rain falls on the good and
the bad alike." The Law operates just like the laws
that govern the nature of electricity and gravity. Whether we are
"good" or "bad" neither electricity or gravity cease
to operate for us. The Law of Mind operates the same exact way.
Using the Law we can demonstrate homes, cars, prosperity and more even
though we may carry within our consciousness resentment, bitterness,
blame, anger, etc. But without Love they will bring us little, if
any, joy and happiness. Dr. Holmes' statement, "Love
points the Way, and Law makes the Way possible," is the
avenue of demonstration that gives us the realization of joy, love,
peace and harmony in our demonstrations.
Before we begin to pray or do treatment, we
must take the time to still our mind and contemplate God's unconditional
Love for us. We must clear our thoughts of any beliefs or ideas
that restrict the Infinite Power of God. We must know that we can
"depend" on God, that we can "trust" God, to provide
us with that which brings love, joy, happiness and peace into our life.
As we pray from a consciousness filled with a conviction of
unconditional Love, we can expect, without doubt, that our demonstration
will be for our highest and greatest Good. Often greater than that
which we pray for. Our highest and greatest Good is always God's
will for us and God never compromises. And neither should we.
So It Is!
Letting Love use me
in Its own Good Way,
