RevBates.tv Global - Weekly Message To The Masses for August 28, 2011 

              "The desire for increase is inherent in all nature.  It is the fundamental impulse of the universe.  All human activities are based on the desire for increase.  People are seeking more food, more clothes, better shelter, more luxury, more beauty, more knowledge, more pleasure - more life.  ... Every living thing is under that necessity for continuous advancement.  Where increase of life ceases, dissolution and death set in at once.  ... People instinctively know this, and hence they are forever seeking more.  This law of perpetual increase is set forth by Jesus in the parable of the talents.  Only those who gain more retain any.  "From him who hath not shall be taken away even that which he hath." ... The normal desire for increased wealth is not an evil or a reprehensible thing.  It is simply the desire for more abundant life.  And, because it is the deepest instinct of their natures, all men and women are attracted to an individual who can give them more of the means of life. - Wallace D. Wattles, The Science of Getting Rich

      Just about everyone is familiar with the Jackie DeShannon song, "what the world needs now is love" ... and few will disagree that love is very important for a healthy, balanced life.  But, romantic love is only one element of Love, and it is important that we have a greater understanding of the Power of Love as it affects every aspect of our lives.  Love is the instinct within us to experience more of life, to increase our capacity for giving and receiving.  If we are not experiencing increase in the measure of Love that we are experiencing in our lives, then we must make the adjustment in our thinking to increase Love first. 

     We begin with the idea that "everything is alright, right now" ... let's say this out loud.  We must find that which we feel is right about our life, first ... for as the Master Mind Jesus stated, if we don't, we may lose that which we have.  Let us begin with what we think is right about our self.  Do we have the right attitude towards life?  We can find out by looking at the people and things in our life and honestly ask ourselves what we think of them.  In the scripture we can read, "love thy neighbor, as thyself" ... but if we don't love our self first, then it is difficult to truly love our neighbor, or to even be nice to them.  The radical Jesus wasn't just asking us to "play nice with our neighbors" when he instructed his audience to "love thy neighbor as thy self" ... he understood the Law of Mind and knew that whenever we have the thought or feeling of love, whether for our self or someone else, love is increased in our consciousness (soul). 

    
Unfortunately for so many of us, we have been taught to be humble.  It is this false idea of humility that has led so many to live a life of struggle and quiet desperation.  The radical Jesus declared, "the Father and I are One" ... and he said this as an example for all of us.  He didn't tell us to be humble, or to think of ourselves as less than him.  He further stated that "all that the Father hath is mine" ... there is nothing humble about this declaration either.  Yet, so many of us still find it difficult to see ourselves as more than our physical circumstances give evidence to, and therefore we fail to receive the increase of good that we desire.  Once again, let's say out loud, "everything is alright, right now" ... and let's begin to expand our consciousness with right thinking.

     And so we see that choosing to "follow" the instructions of the radical Jesus is to be open and receptive to a greater good.  Our world will be a better place for all of us, if we do.  Let's give up the old thoughts of the past; the hurts, the seeming failures, the disappointments, the negative judgments against ourselves and others.  "Let the dead bury the dead," Jesus said.  We are life, and we are to live it abundantly.  Turn from anything that brings the idea of poverty or lack to your attention.  Don't let the negative aspects of the world be impressed on your mind.  Impress your mind with ideas of good, abundance, and all things that cause you to think of your life as wonderful and marvelous.  No matter where you go, turn from all people, places and things that give you a depressed feeling about life.  If you attend a church, temple or spiritual center where you are not lifted up into a high sense of self-esteem ... turn from it and leave it, right now.  


     There is no devil but the be-deviled mind of someone who accepts themselves as inferior or less than based on someone else's opinions.  We must consciously reject all that does not 'increase" the good in our mind and in all that we do.  We must consciously choose to treat everyone as worthy and deserving of our attention and respect.  We must be willing to be generous and to share in that which is ours.  A shared wealth is an increasing wealth and a shared love is an increasing love too. 

     We shall find that as we follow these simple instructions, we shall be happier, and realize more joy ... we shall have  peace of mind, and we shall see even more beauty in our world ... we are on our way to a wonderful life as we affirm with love and conviction, "everything is alright, right now
" ... this is what the world needs now.

AND SO IT IS!

Keep the faith!
Rev. Dr. Henry Lee Bates
