The Way to a Wonderful Life Message for September 6, 2015

         This is truly an amazing and beautiful world that we live in.  The Intelligence that holds this universe together has created something so beyond what the human mind can imagine much less embody.  And few would argue that there is still a great mystery to it all.  But yet the most mysterious of this Intelligence' creation is mankind.  How is it that mankind can breathe in the universe so magnificent and still not realize that there is Something far beyond our human capacity to know that permeates it all?  Something beyond the human imagination.  Something far beyond the primitive idea that there is a god that is in the image of man.  It is as though G-d created this universe and the multitude of universes beyond, but mankind continues to create gods.  There are the gods of religion.  The gods of politics.  The gods of science.  The gods of medicine and medical practitioners.  And the gods of philosophy.  The human mind determines the nature of these gods by their steadfast belief and obedience to them.  

            By looking to persons, places and things, we fail to realize that we have ignored that which created them all.  The scientists becomes frustrated when they look to science for solutions rather than looking beyond science to the Intelligence that created all that they know.  People make gods of politicians and then crucify them in their mind when they disappoint.  Far too many have made gods of their religious beliefs and have failed to realize that the G-d of Truth and Intelligence is beyond mankind's religious concepts.  The Master Mind Jesus gave us a profound instruction when he said, "you will know the Truth and the Truth will set you free."  Truth is Intelligence.  The nature of which is within every living thing; animal, vegetable, mineral and all that is beyond them.  

             Our minds have been conditioned to accept that which is mortal and temporary, as "cause."  There is only One Cause and that is Intelligence.  But, you might say, "why is there so much unintelligence in the world?"  It is there because mankind supports it.  We know we are intelligent.  Some of us know that Intelligence causes all things to be.  We also know that our use of Intelligence and the degree to which we use it, is by "choice."  The words that are inherently conditioned with Power are "I am."  They are power-words because they precede our every "choice."  And they "identify" with the Intelligence that we are using, always, by our choosing.  Someone once said that if God had a "will" for us, it would be that we choose.  We live to our own choices, not to a god's will.  To think that we are governed by "God's Will" is to contradict the nature of Intelligence.

         We can see from these words from the Book of Psalm (17:15) that mankind is beginning to understand G-d as Intelligence: 
"As for me, I shall behold your face in righteousness; when I awake, I shall be satisfied with your likeness."  The Psalmist used words that people of that period would understand and that is right and good.  The message is that when we choose that which is good for all and choose with intelligence, then we shall be satisfied when our thoughts, our words, and the images we hold in our mind, become made manifest in our life experience.  In other words, using the conscious awareness of Jesus' words, we shall be satisfied when our kingdom of G-d within is out-pictured in material/physical form.  

"In God, every end is converted into a new means. Thus the use of commodity, regarded by itself, is mean and squalid. - Ralph Waldo Emerson, Nature

Our fears and our worries have obstructed Intelligence from taking that which we already possess and converting it into a greater abundance of good for us and for others.  The false belief that life, substance and intelligence can be material or human, obstructs the life and intelligence of mankind.  Let us be satisfied in our mind with what we have chosen and the new-ness that we are choosing to experience.  Let us put this satisfaction into action in all that we do and in every hope that we have for a greater good, enough to share and to spare.


Keep the faith!
