From "Collected Essay Of Robert Bitzer" -
If you create something you do not like, you
can change it. What you create you can un-create.
If conditions do not loosen their
grip on you, perhaps you are not in your effective place.
Consciousness establishes its own conditions. If things in your
outer world are not moving fast enough, you need to clear your
consciousness. Perhaps you are not doing what you really want to do
and are trying to use willpower to make things happen. Don't try to
go through the stone wall. Go back in consciousness. Change
your idea, change your evaluation. Resistance, obstructions, and
opposition could mean you are off your path.
Get still and let the new idea come
through. Find yourself on your right path. Here things work
smoothly, joyously, and powerfully. Stop struggling and
forcing. "Not by might, nor by power, but by my
spirit." Let God be you.
"You can overcome any
obstacle. You can achieve the most tremendous things by faith power. Have
big faith - not any old watered-down faith,
and the change in you and in your experience will be little short of

When I walked into the Hollywood Church of Religious Science in March
of 1991, I wasn't prepared to meet a Master Teacher, but I did, and he
was Dr. Robert H. Bitzer. Even Dr. Ernest Holmes,
Founder of Religious Science and author of the "Science of
Mind," recognized Dr. Bitzer's genius and understanding of
Dr. Bitzer's Hollywood Church of Religious Science building
was sold in September, 2005, and the name has been changed to The
Science Of Mind Center of Hollywood, heralding the end of this church
which was once considered the Hallmark Church in the Religious Science
Movement. This building was a prominent landmark on Sunset
Boulevard for 72 years. This new name represents a new beginning
for this organization and we can know that all is in Divine right action.
This small but concise book, "All Power To
You," will change your life for the better even more so than you
can imagine. Dr. Bitzer uses the term "Treatment," the
term "Scientific Prayer" is synonymous with the word
"ALL POWER TO YOU"

CONTINUED - part 2 THOUGHT DIRECTS SUBSTANCE
The purpose of Treatment is to
create through Spiritual realization that which we want to appear as
experience. There is no limitation to what a Treatment can do,
nor to our ability to give a Treatment. Whether we want to
demonstrate a peck of potatoes, a rose bush, a new house, a condition
in the body or a new position, the PRINCIPLE is always the same.
Through Spiritual Realization we create that which we desire to appear
as experience. Creative Intelligence which is Substance follows
the direction of our thought and assumes the form of our desire.
MUST BE TURNED
We must look away from limitation, lack, discord
and disease and look toward the Self which is the perfect expression
of God. Our unification must be complete in the God Mind.
When we have a specific need, we see the condition in the God Mind
exactly as we want it to be. This is Treatment.
MAN IS SPIRITUAL MIND
Our Realization is the mold which gives form to the
Substance, Spirit. There is just One Substance, Intelligence,
Mind, God or Spirit. Our thinking IN this Substance (not INTO)
gives form to this Substance. The Substance of all our
experiences is the same. We THINK Substance into the form of our
BE AWARE OF THE GOOD
In Treatment we turn entirely AWAY from the
condition as it appears, because, as long as we look at the condition
we can never overcome it. We emphasize NOT the thing to be
overcome or changed but the Idea To Be Expressed. We do not
fight disease, but recognize a Principle of health which is normal and
natural for man to express. Not so much overcoming lack or
limitation, but a definite conscious release of abundance.
Treatment always builds up something, some Idea, some Desire, some
Conception that IS to be expressed. The Treatment realizes Power
to be released and then directs it. As we speak our Word in the
Positive way, we will put all our energy into the Word to be released,
and none of our energy can go into the thing to be destroyed. We
think of That which is to be expressed, and the things that are to be
removed or the obstructions to be dissipated will eliminate
themselves. When we let the negative condition alone, negation
will destroy itself as we are concerned with the positive condition to
be expressed. A negative condition may not eliminate itself IF
IGNORED, but will be eradicated through positive expression.
THE UNIVERSE AROUND US
When we recognize man as a Spiritual Being, we see
him EXPRESSING in a Spiritual Universe. We see all form as
simply the objective expression of Spirit, God or Mind. We do
not deny the existence of any form, condition or so-called material
object; but we recognize that every form is the expression of
Intelligence, that every concrete experience IS the manifestation of a
tangible thought. Regardless of what conditions may exist or
what may surround us, we know that thought produces them - thought
will change them.
MAN, THE CENTER OF HIS WORLD
Each person IS the point at which the God Mind
reproduces Itself. Whatever man expects or hopes to find in his
world, must be presented at this point of consciousness as an
idea. All experience is the movement of Intelligence - the
result of man's direction or the reflection of his attitude.
THE OBJECTIVE APPEARANCE
The demonstration of health is complete when every
appearance of disease or sickness has been removed. Expect
your demonstration to be complete.
HAVE NO FEAR
Work scientifically, consistently and
persistently. Recognize that you are dealing with the Law of
Life. Know that it is the nature of Principle to respond to
Itself. Be of good faith. Know that the Word you speak is
the perfect Word of God and establishes Itself.
EFFECTUAL PRAYING IS
We do more than pray that aches and pains may be
removed or that disease be destroyed; we seek to know our oneness with
the Perfection of God and realize that God's Perfection as health is
the Life filling us, flowing through every part of our being,
vitalizing every cell this moment. To ask God to remove a
negative condition would be to recognize it, but to see our oneness
with the True nature of God, brings through the Perfection of
God. Thus the negative condition is automatically wiped out.
ASK AND IT SHALL
Instead of asking God to give us health; we assume
that God, the great creative Principle, the Presence in us now, IS the
perfect health filling every part of our being. Instead of
asking as though we did not have the thing we desired, we ask,
believing that we have it now. By realizing that God-in-us is
that health, we simultaneously ask and receive.
EVERY PRAYER ANSWERS
Within the prayer when it is prayed are all of the
elements necessary to bring it through as a manifestation. We
identify ourselves in Divine Mind with the specific thing desired,
therefore Divine Mind fills US with the Realization of its
Presence. We lift our thoughts above our need.
WHERE TREATMENT TAKES PLACE
Treatment takes place within the consciousness of
man. Anyone can give a Treatment, yet our daily thought or
attitude comprises an unconscious Treatment. To be successful it
is important to know WHAT we are treating. Treatment takes place
within our consciousness. It is mental activity within ourselves
- upon ourselves - by ourselves and for ourselves.
TREATMENT DEALS WITH THOUGHT
Just as the gardener planning his garden carefully
selects the kind and quantity of seed he desires to carry out his
plan; so must we now WHAT we are seeking to do with our lives
and carefully choose those ideas which will contribute to our
unfoldment. THOUGHT is constantly flowing into form.
When you have finished your Treatment turn away
from it and let it rest. Keep anxious thoughts about it out of
your mind. Know that the Treatment is complete within itself -
go about your business and let it do its own work.
Treat until there is no longer any need for the
Treatment. Work until the perfect fulfillment is established on
the outer plane.
THE TREATMENT THAT
Treatment is based upon the recognition of what man
is by Nature, not what he seems to be, or what he is expressing.
All our treating must realize that God is within every individual,
Perfect Man, Perfect Mind, Perfect Supply, Perfect Life, Perfect
Health, Perfect Joy and Perfect Peace.
There is within me a Power which is complete.
This Power complete within me draws to my
conscious recognition everything I need to
express and experience.
