The Way to a Wonderful Life Message for April 26, 2015

                The Spirit of G-d revealed to the ancients in either the 4th or 5th Century B.C. as written in Psalms 82:6 "I said, 'You are "gods"; you are all sons of the Most High.'  The consciousness of mankind was too primitive and too physical based for more than a very few to understand the profound meaning of these words.  For clarification we must understand that the word "sons" is to be read as "a part of" G-d.  But the idea was planted in the mind of mankind nonetheless and so we know that once Truth is known it will weave its way into expansion.  And so we find this Truth revealed again in the words of the Master Mind Jesus in the Gospel of John 10:34 "Jesus answered them, "Is it not written in your Law, 'I said, you are gods'?"  And once again this profound Truth was accepted only by the very few.  And in only a few short years with Jesus gone these words became something that was "read" but seldom understood and rarely identified as a goal for someone to attain.  But these words from Psalms and from the Gospel of John were once again put into the consciousness and so those few seeking enlightenment caught the essence of it in spirit.  And so many of those who did were far removed from the traditional religions of Christianity and Judaism. The mysticism of the ancients began to expand through the mind of mankind and has been adapted in religion, philosophy and even psychology.  But few have found any great desire to fully understand the words from the ancient author of Psalms 82:6 or the Master Mind Jesus, yet more and more we are seeing the "effects" of this profound Truth being presented in a myriad of ways.

           Draw these words from the author of "High Mysticism" Emma Curtis Hopkins into your mind: 
"To say that 'My Good is supply, God is my Good, therefore God is my supply' is to stir the mountains and seas to bring us our new provisions."   These are simple words but formed together in our mind they are powerful words for they shall find agreement in the depths of our soul.  The word "God" is identified in the collective consciousness as the Supreme, the Almighty, and the use of this word puts us in tune with the Power and Intelligence of the Infinite.  Say them to your self and write them down so you don't forget to repeat them daily and often and in due time you will see the results following.

         Emma Curtis Hopkins was fond of repeating this true story to those who would listen which clearly shows the value of spiritual study: 
"A woman who had no faith but had been told what wonder might be wrought through faith sat down and deliberately determined to learn it.  She sat down in the midst of her poverty and loneliness with her little children about her and practiced learning.  She seemed shiftless to her neighbors, but it was astonishing what "luck" that woman always had.  Something good was always "turning up."  Her children were all talented, beautiful, prosperous."

        The Intelligence that we draw our thoughts and our ideas from is always seeking our "recognition" and our "identification" as "part of" Its Life and Nature.  This is not something that is airy fairy but a profound Truth.  We can easily demonstrate it as such with little effort.  Whatever our mind gives attention to is drawn to us ... both the negative and the good ... just as the woman in Emma Curtis Hopkins' story demonstrated.

        To use the Law of Mind does not deny G-d, if anything it glorifies G-d.  It is aligning our mind with our true nature and the nature of G-d.  This is what Jesus mastered more than any one before him and after him.  But, he told us that we can do it too if we stop looking to him or to another man-made deity to do it for us.  What one can do all can do is a Law of G-d; eternal, universal and immutable.  This is why the Master Mind Jesus said we must keep our mind stayed on G-d and on the Good so that we could reveal more and more of the nature of G-d within us. 
The powerful Unity teacher/minister/author Eric Butterworth stated this so clearly:  " Fundamentalists believe Jesus was God becoming man.  I believe that Jesus was man becoming God."

         And I believe that Jesus was directing us all to "become gods" to the degree that we are willing ... "don't ye know that ye are gods?"  "The Kingdom of G-d is within you, not lo here or lo there."  "The Kingdom is at hand."  Why has religion not stressed these teachings more?  Why haven't the masses of people been willing to experience this?  No one truly knows the answers, but this we do know ... becoming G-d is becoming healthy when we are sick ... becoming G-d is becoming prosperous when we are broke ... becoming G-d is becoming successful when we are experiencing failure ... and this is the Truth for every one of us.


Keep the faith!
