RevBates.tv Global - Weekly Message To The Masses for June 8, 2008 

               Remember God is the silent Power behind all things, always ready to pour into our experience that which we need.  We must have a receptive and positive faith in the evidence of things not seen with the physical eye but which are eternal in the heavens.  All is Mind, and we must provide a receptive avenue for It, as It passes out through us into the outer expression of our affairs.  If we allow the world's opinion to control our thinking, then that will be our demonstration!  If, on the other hand, we rise superior to the world, we shall create a new pattern. ... The Universe is the result of the Self-Contemplation of God.  Our lives are the result of our self-contemplations, and are peopled with the personifications of our thoughts and ideas.  Accept this without question for it is true." - Dr. Ernest Holmes, The Science of Mind

     No matter what it is that we aspire to do, our receptivity to Creative Mind will determine our progress toward our goal and our demonstration of it in our lives.  Just how much we accept, is just how much we receive.  "To whom much is given, much is required" ... and so we know that we must act on the ideas that come to us from Creative Mind.  Dr. Bitzer taught that we must act  quickly when we receive ideas or otherwise we lose sight of them and our enthusiasm diminishes.  It is important that we take action immediately, even if the only action we take is to write down the idea.  Often, so many thoughts enter our minds that ideas can slip from our awareness and are soon forgotten.  It is not unusual for someone to find that someone else has done something noteworthy and remember that they had that idea themselves ... but didn't act on it.

     In order to demonstrate genuine success we can look to an instruction from the Master Mind Jesus, "I of mine own self can do nothing" ... and in this statement is the key to genuine success.  We must realize within our mind that we do not have the power to create success ... we have only the ability to use the Power that creates success ... through us, as us, and for us.  We must eliminate within our mind the "sense" of ego power and human effort.  These "sense" illusions can cause us to use manipulation to gain success which can result in fear of loss of the very success we have obtained.  Using "self-contemplation" we can contemplate in our mind how our success will manifest and as we do, more ideas will come to us to expand our success to a greater measure than perhaps we have first imagined.  This "self-contemplation" aligns us with the only Intelligence in the Universe, God.

As we depend on Principle, knowing that Principle knows and does, we achieve "genuine success" in whatever endeavor we choose to express success.  We cannot fail with Principle, for there is no failure in God.  With this assurance we can experience the success we seek in our work, our finances, our relationships or whatever area of our lives we seek to express a greater measure of success.  "Man's mind is the Mind of God functioning at the level of man's understanding of his place in the Universe.  Man contacts the Mind of God at the center of his own being.  It is useless to seek elsewhere.  "The Highest God and the inner-most God is One God."  Through the medium of Mind man unifies with the Universe and contacts a Power that can do anything for him that he is able to conceive of Its doing.  Of course, this Power will never deny Its own Nature." ... writes Dr. Holmes in "The Science of Mind".

     Working with the Power of God, our success never diminishes or takes away the success of another.  Neither does our success interfere with the Universal Good for this would be out of Principle.  Our "genuine success" always benefits everyone and leaves no one out.  This is the only way to demonstrate "genuine success" ... there is no other way.


Keep the faith!
Rev. Dr. Henry Lee Bates
