RevBates.tv Global - Weekly Message To The Masses for October 18, 2009 

                      "For I know the plans I have for you, declares the LORD, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope. Then
you will call upon me and come and pray to me, and I will hear you. You will seek me and find me, when you seek me with all your heart. I will be found by you, declares the LORD." 
-  Jeremiah 29:11-14, The Holy Bible (American Standard Version)

     The Master Mind Jesus' taught to "seek ye first the kingdom of God" and "seek and ye shall find" ... and in the science of mind we know this "seeking" is done within our mind ... where we connect with the Spirit.  So many of us spend so much time seeking effects that we never fully realize the Presence of Spirit in our lives.  This is why the Master Mind Jesus never gave power to appearances ... he saw by faith, not by sight.  Religions and New Age teachings can sometimes deceive us into believing that there is power in effects.  But, there is only one power and this power is G-d, and we can only find that which is of G-d by opening our mind to the Mind of G-d ... and we do this in the silence and through spiritual awareness and understanding.

"Still your mind several times a day and affirm slowly, quietly, and lovingly, "God flows through me as harmony, health, peace, joy, wholeness, and perfection.  God walks and talks in me.  God's spell is always around me, and wherever I go God's Wisdom governs me in all my ways, and Divine right action prevails.  All my ways are ways of pleasantness, and all my paths are peace."  -  Dr. Joseph Murphy, 1971 Special Lecture at the Wilshire Ebell Theatre, Los Angeles, California

     It is important that we understand that at some point our seeking must stop and we must realize we have found what we have been seeking ... and that Something, is G-d ... and if it is not, then we have allowed ourselves to be led astray.  There are those who are so committed to their religions, that they allow their religions to lead them away from G-d.  And there are those who are so committed to following prosperity gurus, that they begin to see money as their security ... but it is a false god.  The spiritual genius, Dr. Ernest Holmes, in a moment of enlightenment made the profound statement; "Love points the way, and Law makes the way possible."  Love gives us the desire and the inspiration to have faith that we can have it ... and by following the Law, we can have it with grace and ease.  But, without Love, which is G-d, we may use the Law to get what we want, but it will lack grace.  In other words, whatever it is that we get, there is always a possibility of losing it ... or experiencing something along with it that takes away our peace and our ease.

"Get the receiving feeling, for that is the Spirit pouring itself through you.  As long as you are looking, you are not receiving.  As long as you are looking, you have not found.  As long as you say, "When will my good come to me?" just so long are you deferring your good.  You are not receiving.  You are not accepting. ... We sometimes spend a lifetime seeking that which we already have.  We give power to effects and not to Spirit.  Jesus never gave power to effects.  I am not saying that you should deny that there are certain appearances in your life, but I am saying, "Do not give them power.  Do not fight them.  Do not sweep them under a rug.  Do not wrestle with them at all.  Look at them, but in consciousness strip them of all power. ... I believe the "secret" of Jesus was that he gave all power to Spirit.  The appearance was there.  Fine.  But Spirit, Mind, Life, Intelligence was the power.  Let the Infinite pour through you in the same manner.  Receive it.  Accept it.  Know that it is the only power in your life."  -  Dr. Frank E. Richelieu, The Art Of Being Yourself

      It is in these moments of "stillness" that the Infinite pours through us, and establishes patterns of Divine Order in our subconscious mind.  Whatever we impress upon the subconscious will be expressed in our experience.  But, we cannot establish these patterns of Divine Order when our mind is being consumed with the negative beliefs and limited ideas of the race-conscious mind.  As we consciously choose to "be still" understand that we are recognizing that there is an Infinite Love that seeks give to us something even greater than we can imagine for ourselves.  And as we grow in our awareness of this Truth, that something greater will come to our awareness.

    And so we go back to the Book of Jeremiah and remind ourselves:  "
You will seek me and find me, when you seek me with all your heart. I will be found by you ..."  The key to everything that I have written in this message is "with all your heart" ... we must seek G-d with all of our heart.  We must have such a great love for G-d, that we are not moved by whatever appears to distract us from finding the Good in every area of our lives.  We must seek to demonstrate our part of the infinite Good because in doing so, we are revealing that we have "found G-d" ... and the Truth is, "I will be found by you."


Keep the faith!
