RevBates.tv Global - Weekly Message To The Masses for September 28, 2008 

                                 "The basic issue we have to deal with and heal is the idea of separation from Life.  To feel at one with Life is our natural state. ... Say each day, "I am never separated from my good.  The one Life that exists is the life that is in me and all around me.  I am one with this Life."  Use any other words that have meaning to you, but let this statement become a daily habit.  It will help you feel your at-one-ment with all of life and help eliminate any consciousness of lack or poverty." - Dr. Frank E. Richelieu, The Art Of Being Yourself

     Our first thought when we pray is to recognize God, and we do this by thinking about what God Is.  God Is Life.  God Is Mind. God Is Spirit.  God Is Truth.  And Life, Mind, Spirit and Truth are Omnipresent, Omnipotent and Omniscient; All Presence, All Power and All Knowing ... Infinite Presence, Infinite Power and Infinite Intelligence.  This is why it is never necessary to get into the details of how our prayers are to be answered.  When we think or say how our good must come, we are outlining ... in other words, we are telling God, Infinite Intelligence what to do.  This never works.  How this Infinite Mind gathers the people, the resources and creates the conditions for our good to materialize in our experience is beyond our human awareness. 

     Whenever we attempt to play God by saying how our good shall come or who it shall come through, we are, in the words of Emerson, not "getting our bloated nothingness out of the way."  We don't know our highest and greatest good.  We only have the awareness of fragments of it ... for "we don't know all that is known."  Think about this.  We may be praying that we get a job in a certain company not knowing that the company will be filing for bankruptcy in a few months.  Or we may be praying that God brings us together in a soul-mate relationship with someone, not knowing that this person has personality traits that are totally unacceptable to us, but we haven't become aware of them yet.  Our part in the process of the unfoldment of our heart's desires and ambitions, is to trust in the Infinite to bring together that which is for our highest good.  Pray for the great job or to realize our life's purpose ... or to come together with our soul-mate ... meditate on it, visualize it, contemplate it ... get a sense of knowing that these things are ours ... this is our part; leave the details of how and when ... to God.

     Our part in the process of unfoldment of our good is to develop the consciousness of knowing that all things work to our good.  Dr. Holmes tells us in The Science of Mind, "Prayer is not an act of overcoming God's reluctance, but should be an active acceptance of his willingness. "  In other words, Life is for us ... we can say "yes to Life" ... knowing that our good can unfold in ways totally unknown to us and in the most unexpected ways.  Our mind must be open to the Divine results; that which brings us greater joy, greater peace, greater harmony, greater success, and greater abundance.  We must be willing to clear from our mind all things that limit us ... be they person, place or thing.

     From Dr. Frank Richelieu:  "There is a miracle Power working through you and this power knows no limitation or stopping place.  It does not hurry.  It does not push and shove, but keeps constantly and steadily surging forward, opening worlds before it and leaving worlds behind it.  The Infinite ever entices us and draws us onward to discover more. ... Whether you fully understand this miracle Power or not, you can know enough about it to enrich your life in every way.  You can prove to yourself that this Power works by means of you.  Remind yourself often of this Power.  Know that it is within you and all around you.  Know that it is constantly healing and blessing you.  Know that it is leading you toward greater satisfaction and accomplishment.  Through consciously using this Power you can change your life.  You can let go of that which is hindering you and impress your subconscious mind with that which you desire."

Okay, what now?  Now, is the time for us to trust in God, Infinite Spirit ... to rest in the assurance that this Power will prove Itself to us.  I know that there is a Power within you, and within me, that does not let anything distract us from the good that we desire to experience ... so no matter what conditions or circumstances we may find ourselves in today, it's okay, because we begin right where we are ... our consciousness of "life is good, all the time" draws to us all the good that we can imagine for ourselves.


Keep the faith!
