Rev. Dr. Henry Lee Bates - Archived Messages

RevBates.tv Global - Weekly Message To The Masses for September 9, 2007 

                                                       "Infinite Mind cannot retract its divine announcement.  No matter how far you may seem to wander from the divine fiat, you still remain the divine you.  Backsliding is only in thought, never in Principle.  You never left your divinity; only your thought wandered.  This is important to know.  You may have periods when your spiritual growth seems to have stopped.  It has not.  Nothing has happened to you. ... Now letís get very positive.  Begin to give yourself credit.  Rejoice in the divine you.  Recognize it as a center of power.  You are in conscious control, and you know it.  Good things are coming to you because you know they belong to you." - Dr. Robert H. Bitzer, Collected Essays

The paragraphs above written by Dr. Bitzer gives us a greater insight into our Divine/Human experience.  As our mind focuses on that which is outside of us, rather than remaining in tune with that which is within, we unconsciously lose sight of our divinity.  There is that within us which is never touched by our experiences.  It always remains perfect, whole, and complete.  This is our divinity ... this is the image and likeness of God.  As Dr. Bitzer reminds us, backsliding is only in thought, never in Principle.  And this is why we never need waste time thinking about it.  The moment our mind recognizes, again, who we are in Truth, the backsliding is behind us ... just like yesterday's lunch ... it is done with.

     It is important for all of us to take the time each day to reflect on our divinity.  It is one thing to know this intellectually, but something quite different to have the realization of it.  And we will never truly gain the realization of it on a consistent level, unless we make it a daily practice to recognize that we are much more than we appear to be.  Remember, our divinity is not obvious in the physical; we can't see it, hear it, taste it, or touch it.  We can only realize it in mind ... in our thoughts.

     We have accepted many ideas about ourselves and about our lives.  As we think of these ideas, which ones do we want to experience?  This is where "choice" becomes conscious to us.  By asking ourselves the questions, we consciously become more in tune with the power of choice.  "Choice" is our center of power.  It is the way in which we activate the Power of God in our lives.  Everything that we experience is created first, in our mind.

     Every change that we seek for ourselves must first begin with a change of mind.  Our state of mind as we contemplate and vision what we choose for ourselves is of utmost importance.  It does little good for someone to vision the perfect marriage with their spouse while carrying on an affair with someone else ... or to vision for money and at the same time run around "pour-mouthing" to people.  Mind is constant and omnipresent ... we cannot manipulate Mind, we only get from It what we give to It.  So, let's always be very clear about what we choose for ourselves and what we vision for ourselves.  

     When we begin to think from the demonstration (desired result), we will find that our state of mind has changed as well.  We will be motivated to expand our vision and to consider ways in which our demonstration will unfold.  But, let's not get sidetracked by how it happens ... but keep knowing that it is.  When our conversations become the conversation of a healthy person, then we will be healed of what ails us ... and the same applies to everything in life that we desire for ourselves.  Rich people don't talk about being poor or how many coupons they cut out of the Sunday paper ... these are not the subjects of conversation for the wealthy.  Our conversations reveal our consciousness and we must correct the thoughts that create these in order to demonstrate something greater in our lives.

There is an awesome divine-ness within us.  As our dominant thought is directed definitely towards something ... we cannot help but receive it.  Let us affirm, "Good things are coming to me because I know they belong to me" ... and as we have this conviction and do not waver ... we will receive that which we know is ours.  There is no necessity to struggle or resist that which "appears" to block our Good ... it has no power ... our "definite-ness" is aligned with the only Power there Is.  As Dr. Bitzer writes so definitely:  "Heaven is your state of consciousness, and earth is whatever you have chosen to manifest."  Our awesome divine-ness is the complete Law, God becoming aware of God through us and expressing through our actions.  God-as-me, God-for-me, and God-through-me ... this is all the Power we will ever need.  Awesome!


Keep the faith!
