RevBates.tv Global - Weekly Message To The Masses for November 4, 2007 

                                "Spirit is passionate; without passion no one can be truly spiritual." - Deepak Chopra, M.D. ... Co-founder of the Chopra Center, Author

     
The ancient texts tell us that whatever it is that we are to do or to have, we must have a complete faith with no doubting in order to receive the thing that we seek.  Dr. Holmes writes in "The Science of Mind," that "faith is complete when it is both a conscious and subjective acceptance."  Or, as Dr. Murphy writes, when both the "subconscious and conscious mind agree."  But, the Great Metaphysician Jesus, taught that if we have "faith the size of a mustard seed" then we can move mountains.  There is a different nuance to each of these statements and perhaps as we examine them a little, we may find a greater benefit in them.

      I am not sure that I would realize whether my subjective mind was in agreement with my conscious mind or whether by subconscious and conscious mind agree.  The only way in which to know is when we receive the results of what we seek.  But, this absolute faith can be tricky ... and like the scripture reads, " ... for he who doubts is like a wave of the sea that is driven and tossed by the wind."  This call for an absolute and complete faith may in fact, hinder our demonstrations.  I state this, because for many of us, we just don't have the level of confidence to realize an absolute or complete faith.  And for those of us who find this absolute and complete faith to be fleeting, I suggest that we look again at the statement from the Master Mind Jesus.  He stated that all we need is "faith the size of a mustard seed."

     Now, this "faith the size of a mustard seed," in everyday language is, "faith in the possibility."  Dr. Norman Vincent Peale helped thousands of people realize good results by teaching "possibility thinking."  In order to have any faith at all in something, we must realize that it is a possibility.  When praying for someone who is dealing with seeming life-threatening illnesses, the first step is to help them realize that healing is a possibility.  The same is true for almost everything that we would pray about.  This belief in the possibility automatically diminishes the power of the negative in our mind.  And as the negative power is diminished, our mind is more free and relaxed and more ready to develop a greater faith.  Once this "faith the size of a mustard seed" enters our mind, our desire to be healthy, or prosperous, or whatever, is enlivened and energized.

     As we know, All Is Mind, and the more universal we are in our desires, the more complete will be our results.  Whether we want to demonstrate a BMW or health, our desire must go beyond the personal to the universal.  Should we desire to demonstrate a BMW, we can think beyond the personal by realizing that as we purchase a BMW, we are also part of the employment of all people associated with BMW; the car salesman, the advertising personnel, the building contractors that built the dealership, the owner of the dealership, and the people who work in the factories associated with manufacturing the automobile as well as all the parts of the automobile ... and we can go even beyond this in our thinking.  When we choose to demonstrate health, we can realize that as a healthy person we are more productive in our work, more cooperative with those around us and our demonstration of health over illness can inspire the people around us to
do the same.  There is always more to our personal desires than what they appear to be.  As we remember that we are working with a Universal Power, Presence, and Intelligence, then we know that whatever desire It gives to us, through our mind, will always be universal in nature.

     As we understand and realize more and more of the possibilities that are available to us ... and the possibilities that our demonstrated desires create, not only for us personally but for many others, we begin to feel a greater passion for demonstrating our Good desires.  It is a wonderful feeling to know that as we receive, we are simultaneously giving.  This is exciting to our true nature, our Spirit.  And so we realize that our prayer-treatments are powerful as they are demonstrated.  This passion for demonstrating the Good, or God, takes us out of any concept of selfishness or self-centeredness ... and we begin to more completely realize that we are a "center of Creative Mind" ... bringing forth Good for ourselves and many others.

    
And so we realize that much can be accomplished with faith the "size of a mustard seed" ... and as we develop an unflinching faith in the possibilities that are available to us, then we can loose the passion within and be true to the calling of our souls.

AND SO IT IS!

Keep the faith!
Rev. Dr. Henry Lee Bates
