RevBates.tv Global - The Way to a Wonderful Life Message for December 11, 2011 

            ”And I say unto you, Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you.  For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened.” - attributed to Jesus, Luke 11:9-10, Holy Bible, KJV

           "Decide what belief is.  Know that belief is a thought in your mind and that what you think you create.  Apply the power of prayer therapy in your life.  Choose a certain plan, idea, or mental picture.  Unite mentally and emotionally with that idea.  As you remain faithful to your mental attitude, your prayer will be answered.  Always remember, if you really want the power to heal, you can have it through faith, which means a knowledge of the working of your conscious and subconscious mind.  Faith comes with understanding." - Dr. Joseph Murphy, The Power of Your Subconscious Mind
         "Do not confuse understanding with a larger vocabulary,   Sacred writings are beneficial in stimulating desire for inward realization if one stanza at a time is slowly assimilated.  Continuous intellectual study results in vanity and the false satisfaction of an undigested knowledge." - Autobiography of a Yogi

      This is the final installment of our "Jesus"
Series, and it is the one in which we must discover within our self that which Jesus discovered not only for himself, but for all of us, and that is that consciousness is everything.  Whatever we have, whatever we are doing, whatever we are being, is a reflection of our consciousness of these things.  And, that is the "good news" because we know that if we are to have more, we know it is within us to have it.  Jesus said, "knock, and it shall be opened unto you" and in this he was telling us to knock on the door of our consciousness and open our mind to the more abundant.

     The great Dr. Murphy tells us to, "unite mentally and emotionally" with what we want.  And in this he is telling us to not only "identify" what we want, but to "identify with it" ... for it is not enough to know there is a greater thing possible, but we must believe and have faith that we are part of it ... part of its "identity" in our mind.  In everything we are experiencing, there is a fragment of that something so much more.  It is up to us to "identify" with that "so much more" in our consciousness.  Do we have a car that satisfies our need for transportation but does not satisfy our desire for something of quality workmanship and beauty?  Or, is it a better house, a better job, or greater financial ease that we desire to experience?  Then we must begin to "identify" or "knock on the door" of our consciousness in order to demonstrate that finer automobile, house, job, or greater financial ease as ours.

     If we really want the "power to heal" Dr. Murphy tells us, we "can have it through faith" ... and in this context "heal" means to heal not only that of a physical or emotional dis-ease, but also that which reflects lack and limitation.  As we gain knowledge of the attributes of Spirit, we realize that we must "get into the spirit of the thing" if we are to expect the Law of G-d, which is a Law of Correspondence, to work through us.  The Master Mind Jesus knew that this is possible, for we each have within us an infinite capacity for joy, for happiness, for harmony and for beauty.  There is a great joy that springs to life within us as we realize that our desires are G-d's desires for us.  And we know this as we identify first with G-d, then with the thing in which we identify ourselves with.  

     Many of us have had experiences in life that "disturb" our mind.  Both religious and secular ideas have been inflicted upon us that require us to heal them in order to have that love of G-d and love of Life that provides for us a wonderful life right here where we are.  Yet, we cannot heal anything by focusing on that which disturbed us or what we have experienced in the past.  True "healing is revealing" that Something Greater that has always been with us, untouched by the experiences and the false ideas that were either inflicted upon us or accepted by us.  Which is why Jesus understood that in the "present moment" we can touch on this Something Greater in our mind by "recognizing" It and "identifying" with It.

     We must understand these profound words of Jesus "knock, and it shall be opened unto you" ... "to him that knocketh it shall be opened" ... by "knock" Jesus meant "demand" ... and so we must make a "demand" on our consciousness to transcend the conditions and circumstances that we find ourselves in, and in order to make the demand, we must have conviction.  We establish this conviction and faith and embody in consciousness the thing we desire with spiritual prayer; we recognize the action of divine law, we identify with it and align our mind with it, we declare the results that we seek to experience, and then we accept it in our mind as ours, and continue to believe that it is ours.

     The Love and Law of G-d is ours to use, just as Jesus used it.  It is universal so it is available to everyone.  It is no respecter of persons and is not dependent on conditions, it is dependent only with our recognition and identification with it.  We can read in the scriptures, " with all thy getting, get understanding."  Let's begin to understand the universal principles taught by the radical Jesus and all the great teachers of spiritual principles ... and not be distracted by that which will leave us wanting.


Keep the faith!
Rev. Dr. Henry Lee Bates
