Rev. Dr. Henry Lee Bates - Archived Messages

RevBates.tv Global - Weekly Message To The Masses for May 4, 2008 

               “The law of prosperity is beautifully expressed by the Psalmist when he says, "His delight is in the law of the Lord; and in his law doth he meditate day and night." (Psalm 1:2)  Prosperity means to increase our capacities and abilities along all lines and in every direction so that we release our inner powers.  The promotion, the money, and the contacts you wish to make are the images or likenesses, as well as the physical forms of the states of mind which produce them.” - Dr. Joseph Murphy, "The Amazing Laws of Cosmic Mind Power"

     When I was growing up on the farm in Missouri, my father would tell us, "early to bed, early to rise, makes you healthy, wealthy and wise" ... and these words served him well.  Back then,  I assumed he said this so I would get up at 5:00 a.m. to milk the cows before going to school.  In reality, these statements from my father have stuck with me my entire life, and they have served me well.  There is a wisdom that goes beyond the mere words and that is, if we are to do well in our lives, we must get plenty of rest so that we have the zest and vitality to do the things that we must do in order to demonstrate both wisdom and wealth.

     Many people in the world are obsessed with diets and other therapies to keep them healthy, but without restful sleep, most of these diets and therapies will only give us temporary health.  Sleep is important not only for our physical body, but for our emotional and mental health as well.  If our mind is focused on not having the energy to get through the day, then there is not much likelihood that it will be open and receptive to new ideas and inspiration.  Even prayer, meditation, and spiritual mind treatment, cannot provide for us the necessary effects of a good night's sleep.  In fact, to practice any of them effectively, it is necessary that we get plenty of sleep, as lack of sleep adversely affects our state of mind, or attitude.  Our attitude is key to our success and prosperity.

     In Dr. Murphy's book, "The Amazing Laws of Cosmic Mind Power," he writes about a man who was struggling to be successful.  Here is what Dr. Murphy wrote:  "An insurance salesman once said to me, "I try so hard, and I work long hours, but my results are meager and most disappointing."  I arranged for him to have a session with me once a week.  At these sessions I had him still his mind, relax, and let go; then I would pray for him as follows:  "You are relaxed and at ease, poised, serene, and calm.  By day and by night you are prospering spiritually, mentally, and financially.  You are a tremendous success.  You are open and receptive to new ideas.  Your good is flowing to you freely, joyously, endlessly, and ceaselessly.  The law of increase is working for you now." ... Then he would pray for about five minutes in the same manner after my prayer, affirming these truths in the first person, present tense.  These weekly get-togethers brought marvelous results.  Within a few weeks he began to make new contacts, and his sales increased by leaps and bounds.  He discovered that a changed attitude changed everything in his life."

     When we "direct" our subconscious towards anything; success, wealth, health, prosperity ... prior to going to sleep, it works throughout the night without any opposition from our conscious mind.  But, we must be relaxed as we go to sleep.  Feeling stressed, tired, or over-worked, can hinder us from benefiting from the power of our subconscious mind.  A good night's rest, along with daily prayer-treatment and moments of sitting in the silence ... will work wonders in our life.  As the Master Mind Jesus stated, "it is the Father that doeth the work" ... but even the Father (Infinite Spirit) cannot work effectively through a mind that is tired and frustrated.

Let's take another look at the affirmations that Dr. Murphy used with the salesman and let us say them, silently or out loud ... in the first person, present tense:
"I am relaxed and at ease, poised, serene, and calm.  By day and by night I am prospering spiritually, mentally, and financially.  I am a tremendous success.  I am open and receptive to new ideas, now.  My good is flowing to me freely, joyously, endlessly, and ceaselessly, now.  The law of increase is working for me now."
            Let's know that this is so ... and let's let it be so ... now.


Keep the faith!
Rev. Dr. Henry Lee Bates
