RevBates.tv Global - Weekly Message To The Masses for January 27, 2008 

              ... what the world needs is spiritual conviction, followed by spiritual experience.  I would rather see a student of this Science prove its Principle than to have him/her repeat all words of wisdom that have ever been uttered.  It is far easier to teach the Truth than it is to practice It. ... But the practice of Truth is personal to each, and in the long run no one can live our life for us.  To each is given what he/she needs and the gifts of heaven come alike to all.  How we shall use these gifts is all that matters!  To hold one's thought steadfastly on the constructive, to that which endures, and to the Truth, may not be easy in a rapidly changing world, but to the one who makes the attempt much is guaranteed. - Dr. Ernest Holmes, The Science of Mind

We keep hearing the word "recession" in the news and for many people this word is the reality of their financial affairs.  Mortgage payments doubled, high gasoline prices, and credit card debt are but some of the effects that many people are facing.  Yet, there are those who do not seem to be affected by these at all.  As a matter of fact, there are plenty of people making lots of money and living luxurious lives.  Reading in the "Business" section of our newspapers we can find articles where companies are laying off employees,  and giving multi-million dollar bonuses to their officers.  Does this make sense?  For many people it does not ... but in Truth, it makes perfect sense.  In the Great Depression early in the 1900's, some people jumped out of the windows of their office buildings ... while others were reviewing plans for building bigger offices.  And the difference is "consciousness" ... and it is a difference that we need to pay attention to.

       From The Science of Mind: 
"We must consciously know that we can use creative power.  The more complete such acceptance on our part, the more completely we shall be able to use this power for definite purposes.  We should develop a conscious conviction of our ability to know and to understand the way that the mind works.  We shall not be able to do this while we listen to those who deny us, or themselves, the privileges we wish to enjoy.  No one ever yet found a living soul in a dead body or learned that affirmations of life and health will become beneficial by denying any power to them."

     In Reality, our wealth and success are not dependent on anything outside of our very own consciousness.  To develop the consciousness of wealth and success, our mentality must be filled with conviction, warmth, color, and imagination.  Imagine what it is that we are working with in our mind.  We are working with the only Power and Intelligence there is, God, Infinite Spirit ... Principle.  As we depend on Principle, there is nothing to oppose us.  Principle is not dependent on world affairs, history, or our own personal past experiences or the ups and downs of the stock market.  As we foster a conviction that Spirit responds to us and become conscious of Its Presence within us ... within our own mind ... our consciousness begins to embody the ideas that we give It.  But ... we must be persistent and consistent in our conviction.  And this is where we can gain the greatest benefit from The Science of Mind: 
"We should be careful to distinguish day dreaming and wistful wishing from really dynamic and creative treatment.  When we treat we do not wish, we KNOW.  We do not dream, we STATE.  We do not hope, we ACCEPT.  We do not pray, we ANNOUNCE.  We do not expect something is going to happen, we BELIEVE THAT IT HAS ALREADY HAPPENED."

     Practicing the method of effective, dynamic prayer given to us by Dr. Ernest Holmes in The Science of Mind, we can develop a consciousness that is "recession-proof" ... we can prepare our mind to accept the ideas that bring us greater success and prosperity.  We can become "self-reliant" as we have the conviction that our mental work ... works.  "It is done unto you as you believe," stated the Master Mind Jesus ... if we allow ourselves to believe that our success and wealth are dependent on the state of the economy, then we shall experience the ups and downs of the world markets.  The Law simply responds to our beliefs ... for it is Its nature to do so.

Now is the time of our good fortune, for the greatest time to demonstrate God, Infinite Principle, is when everything seems to contradict the Truth.  Let's not deny God and the Good, by conforming to the "world's" ideas about 'recession" ... God is not having a recession and neither are we ... for everything that we experience is first experienced in our mind ... and as our mind is turned toward God and the Good, we experience our heart's desires.


Keep the faith!
