Sometimes we come across books or movies or other written
materials that we just can’t wait to share with others. After
reading more of the writings of Mary Kupferle, a Unity minister
and author, I immediately wanted to share what I had read. The
beauty of her writings are the simplicity in which she explains
profound spiritual truths.
This is taken from her article “God Never Fails”
(she refers to G-d in the traditional masculine vernacular) …
that we desire, all that we can ever envision or hope to attain
is already provided for us; it is already available and will
ever be awaiting our acceptance. This is true whether it
concerns the body, home, or business; whether conditions and
situations seem desperate and difficult; whether circumstances
seem to be hopelessly entangled and confused; or whether the
attainment of the desires and visions of our hearts seem
impossible, beyond hope of realization.
The only condition on which this manifest good is dependent
for complete outer expression is the condition of consciousness.
As explained by one Truth teacher and writer, "The Spirit can do
for us only what it can do through us. Unless we are able to
provide the consciousness, Spirit cannot make the gift." If the
consciousness is filled with impressions of negative
appearances, it is not the kind of consciousness that can
receive the good gifts that the Giver desires to offer to His
beloved sons. If the consciousness is full of doubt and
permeated by anxiety and fear, it is not the kind of
consciousness that provides a free channel for the overflowing
Christ heritage of goodness.
There is something we can do, however, to provide
the right kind of consciousness, the receiving consciousness.
... The Spirit itself will form this receiving
consciousness within us, as we give it free access to our minds
and hearts. The Spirit is more than eager and more than
abundantly ready to remold, transform, and renew our
consciousness if we will simply let it do so without any human
forcing of the will!
Help yourself to become receptive right now by
giving yourself wholeheartedly to the presence of Spirit, our
be still, let go, and let God. Strive no longer to imagine what
the results may be. Loose all, leave all, and let God move
within your consciousness. He will remold, refashion, and
re-create in you the perfect receiving consciousness for life,
peace, love, joy, beauty, wisdom, and abundance of good.
Jesus is the perfect example of the perfect
receiving consciousness. His manner, His attitude, His words,
and His teachings never bespoke strain, strife, personal power,
or human willfulness. His life is an expression of a perfect
continual receiving from God. He was the perfect channel, the
perfect vessel, the perfect embodiment through which God could
move and have His being.
Most of us want to be good givers. We are eager to
share all the fine and lovely things of life with others, but we
sometimes forget that we must take the time and thought for
receiving. Being a good receiver is not a complicated task, but
a matter of simple application. As one Truth student puts it:
"Take time, every day, quietly to let God give to you. Be still,
sit quiet, and simply say to the loving Father,
am ready to receive, dear Father. I am ready to receive all the
good You wish to give to me. I am receiving, now."
Learn to be a good receiver. Become open and
receptive to your good through prayer, through affirming, "I
am receiving. I am receiving now." As you do so, you open
the gates of your mind and heart, you open the long closed
passages of the soul, you enlarge and expand the cramped
quarters of your being until they are amply ready to receive the
bounty of God's goodness, prepared, and ready for overflowing.
Do not let yourself become concerned about whether you have
previously spoken, acted, lived in a manner worthy of receiving
God's good. Do not be anxious if you feel you may have taken
many wrong steps or perhaps misunderstood God's guidance or
misinterpreted His leadings, for nothing, absolutely nothing in
the outer world, can prevent your acceptance of God's good which
is ever at hand, awaiting your claim.
No place that we may go or be is beyond the reach
of the ever-present One and His goodness. No complication of
outer circumstances can prevent this all-present good from
reaching you, from lifting and sustaining and helping you. No
human mistake can separate you from the constantly present
goodness of God, once you acknowledge its presence and accept
Do not become discouraged if the results of your
affirmations and prayers do not appear to take the shape and
form you think is right and advantageous. ...
There is nothing that God cannot make
right, nothing He cannot heal, restore, renew, supply, or
provide if we will but become open, receptive, and obedient to
His workings. As we become quiet and still, as we persistently
and faithfully relax and let go and let God, we present
ourselves in an acceptable way to the Holy Spirit's anointing of
It is the truth for everyone that G-d never fails
the ready-set-grow consciousness. We must prepare ourselves in
consciousness to receive, to accept and to expect. It is no
simple statement that we don't get what we want ... we get what
Keep the Faith!
