The Way to a Wonderful Life, Sunday,
September 8, 2013
Listen to the Radio Broadcast of this
real work is the building of yourself. All effort not directed
that way is auxiliary to the main endeavor. Accumulated objects of
monetary value are not a gauge of your rewards in the real world.
Monetary values may be as distinct from real wealth as physical strength
may be distinct from moral strength. Monetary values become wholly
fictitious when they are substituted for the wealth of the real world.
Money or its equivalent is lawful, necessary, sure, when you rightly
relate yourself to life. But to believe and to practice the belief
that the success of your living is to be computed by your financial
resources is to confuse values and to misdirect your efforts."
Imelda Octavia Shanklin, What Are You? (1929)
the things that we do and all the things that we are thinking about
doing, most people find little time to truly think about what is most
important to all of us. And that is "what are you?"
First of all, we must know that we are not our experiences, they are
temporary, we are eternal. Everyone has had experiences in their
lives that challenged them and perhaps even challenged their faith, both
in G-d and in themselves. As we remember the high points and
the low points of our life experiences, most of us realize that both
gave us something that expanded our consciousness and our awareness of
what we value and what value we place on ourselves. Many of us
have identified times in our lives when with the benefit of hindsight we
were able to identify periods of low self-esteem. Dr. O. C. Smith
would tell us that "whatever we have done, we
did it in the consciousness that we had at the time" ...
but, he would tell us that our consciousness changes. And it does.
Nothing, no single experience, no person, can hold us to a consciousness
that we know is not our true nature and we no longer desire to
experience. As the offspring of Intelligence, Power and
Spirit, we have within us an infinite capacity to seek that which is of
value to us. And our greatest asset will always be our ability to
choose ... and to choose again and again until we find within us the
consciousness of the Christ Itself (G-d within). This "pearl
of great price" that we experience may be "momentary" at
first, but as we establish within our mind and heart the decision to
realize Its presence within us to a greater degree, we shall experience
It to a greater degree, and even greater still.
From the book "What Are
You?" we can read:
not resist your experiences by being ashamed when you have not known how
to let God deliver you. When you say of any matter, "I have
not yet demonstrated," the reason for the delay is apparent to one
who knows the source of demonstration. The demonstrator
demonstrates himself. When "I" demonstrates, it
demonstrates itself; that self is the personal; it federates with time
and time involves postponements. Do not oppose God by trying to
demonstrate yourself. Then God will demonstrate Himself; His
demonstration will be of the nature of a miracle in your life. ... Do
not resist ridicule of your confidence. ... Nonresistance will protect
you from all the assaults that can be attempted by the inhabitants of
the fictitious world. It will open for you an entrance to the
world of vital potentialities, the living soul and God."
Nonresistance is not new. The Master Mind Jesus called us to
"resist not evil" ... that is, anything that
"negates" the Good that is omnipresent. Yet, we will not
realize the tremendous benefit of nonresistance until we realize what
the "I" within us contains. As Imelda Shanklin writes; "Spiritually,
what are you? You are a soul that has forgotten its divine
identity, a soul now struggling to remember, in the midst of time and in
the confusions of experiences, that you are the living son (a part) of
the living God." How many times do we use the word
"I" do we remind ourselves of this profound eternal truth
about ourselves? Few of us ever do, and fewer still even fully
understand the fullness of power that the word carries with it. To
develop nonresistance we must be conscious of our feelings, our
reactions, our words and our thoughts. What makes us
uncomfortable? What makes us worry? What are we concerned
about? Do we see the world with its great potentialities or do we
see chaos and discord? Do we see our life with great potential or
... ? Let's understand the principle involved and with this
understanding we shall realize a way in which we can draw to us the
health, the wealth, the success and all that makes us whole in the life
Daniel Boone Herring writes in his book,
"Mind Surgery" (1931).... "Man's
effort to frighten us into being "good" has made him lie
tremendously about the whole thing for we have been taught that God
punishes us for infractions of man's moral code. This is too silly
to need further comment. Does electricity punish you if you get
crossed up with it or does electricity merely express its nature?
Answer this and you answer all moral questions. ... This shows us the
power of our own minds to forgive ourselves for all past condemnation.
Jesus said: "But, to prove that the son of man (that is you)
has the power to forgive sins on earth I say unto you, arise and go into
thy house"; and the man arose and went into his house - healed of
palsy. This man was simply paralyzed with self-pity and
self-condemnation and this mental action had reacted into his motor
nervous system and paralyzed his nerve centers. ... In freeing yourself
from bondage, you are to understand at once that every time you think
backward you are trying to get water into the jug - and what you are
seeking to accomplish is to get some water out of the jug. ...
Self-condemnation plays no part in the life toward mastery. Create
new conditions - you cannot, by any conceivable possibility, redeem past
conditions. This is why Jesus said: "Let the dead bury the
dead." ... This total non-recognition of the past is what blots our
our so-called sins and makes us whiter than snow."
And so we realize that the "Who" of
"Who Are You?" is dependent upon our own realization that who
we are today is who we choose to be. We can refuse the joy and
happiness, success and prosperity of the present by reminding ourselves
of past sadness and gloom, failure and lack, or we can choose to remain
focused on what it is that works for us and loose in our mind what no
longer serves us. Who Are You? and What Are
You? are good questions to ask ourselves ... but no one else can answer
them for us ... for no one else's answer is worthwhile to us ... these
are questions we must answer for ourselves.
SO IT IS!
