RevBates.tv Global - The Way to a Wonderful Life Message for October 16, 2011 

            "You are in your experience, what you are conscious of being.  The whole universe is yours, but you can appropriate only according to your consciousness.  "All things that the Father hath are mine"; but it is obvious that you can actually have only that which you are conscious.  From this you can see that you should treat [pray] not merely for what you want but for the consciousness of being what you want.  You live in a world of great beauty and you can become conscious of this.  Limitless abundance is yours, and you can become conscious of what you want.  Consciousness identifies with your good and makes it part of your being. ... Infinite Mind [G-d] knows no limitations and manifests according to the law of consciousness.  You are [can be] limited by your belief, but you are not limited by Principle.  Your potentials are inexhaustible, but your consciousness is the determining factor.  You have a little or a lot.  The Infinite does not care and does not restrict.  Bigness brings consciousness forth; smallness contracts.  You are big."  - Dr. Robert Bitzer, Collected Essays, pg. 34

             Mark 11:23 "For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith." - attributed to Jesus, The Holy Bible [KJV]

There is no doubt in my mind that when the radical Jesus said that through our faith we could "cast a mountain into the sea" that he was telling the people to THINK BIG.  Yet, so many of us fail to take the steps necessary to develop our consciousness towards that which we dream about and long for because we get so caught up in the experiences we are having right now.  But, if we fail to take the time to build within our mind the things that we want to experience in a specific and definite way, than we shall not receive much in the way of results.  It is up to us to become conscious of more of the good that is available to us in the universe.  Our failure to do so will only give us a repetitive dissatisfaction with life.  This is why we are instructed to "seek and you shall find."  We must establish in our consciousness that "what I am seeking is seeking me."  This is a choice made in consciousness.  But, first, we must know what we are seeking ... and we must find it so appealing, that we become persistent in our seeking.

     Let us not be confused by those who tell us that all we must do is "dream and believe" ... we must do our mental work and keep our attitude as one of expectancy and prepared for the experience of "having" that which we choose to have, to be, or to do.  The radical Jesus said, "pick up your bed and walk" ... and this is a metaphor for us to "wake up" and find that something which will stir up our enthusiasm and our passion ... something that will be exciting to develop and achieve.  Our lack of excitement for life has caused so many of us to become discouraged, frustrated, depressed and to become voyeurs of other people's success.  Far too many of us spend more time watching sports and celebrities on television and in the movies than we spend on developing our own success and creative development.

     Is it necessary that we have faith in G-d?  No, it is not, but our way will be made much easier if we do and our joy more complete when we realize the results of our work.  We should ask ourselves why we wouldn't want to have faith in G-d.  Far too many of us confuse a faith in G-d with religion and we have let religion, religious dogma, and religious leaders, cause us to abandon our faith in G-d.  Jesus had his moment when he doubted his faith ... but he made the decision to re-establish his faith, an even greater faith, and to fully establish within his consciousness the Omnipresence, Omnipotence and the Omniscience of the Divine. 

     A direct contact in our mind with the Infinite eliminates self-doubt, lack of confidence and lack of faith in our self.  A faith in both G-d and our ability to reveal G-d through our faith is a powerful energy that attracts to us our highest good in all things.  "Imagination is more important than knowledge" stated Einstein.  Imagination filled with faith, is unstoppable! We must use our faith-filled-imagination to "lift up our vision" so that we are not distracted by the noise and nonsense going on in the world around us.  Our vision should be one of ever-expanding good; health, wealth, happiness, joy, peace, wisdom, love ... and all things good.  It is up to us to prepare our consciousness to receive the good that is ours.  No one can do it for us for no one else can "think" for us.  It is our thoughts that make us conscious of a greater good.  What we think about becomes a part of our experience, but we must not let our thoughts become unconscious thinking, but conscious thinking.  We can choose whether something is hard or easy; a life of struggle or a life of ease ... and our life experiences will reflect these choices.

     From Joel Goldsmith's "Infinite Way Letters 1958":  "We do not have to accept limitation in any form - limitation of health, of pocketbook, or of human relationships.  We do not have to accept limitation in any form because these limitations are merely man-made beliefs which have no more foundation than the many theories which at one time were considered sound, but which today are considered ludicrous.  We must stand on the truth that I and the Father are one and all that the Father has is ours.  We must realize our infinity and prove it.  But this can only be demonstrated as we realize that we have been victimized, not by lack, but by a universal suggestion which we have accepted."

     The radical Jesus called us to "be in the world, but not of the world" ... in other words, don't let man-made beliefs and religious dogma limit our relationship with G-d, Infinite Spirit.  Jesus told us to "let your light so shine" and as we do, we shall lift our vision and glorify the Spirit that dwells within us.



Keep the faith!
