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.

Great Metaphysician who was also the first Religious Science Master
Teacher I was exposed to.
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

POWER TO YOU
Robert H. Bitzer
"ALL POWER is given me in Heaven and in earth."
YOUR LIFE is a quest for Power - the power to get
what you go after - the power that will heal and keep you well - the
power to make money, the power to love and be loved - the power to
make yourself and those you love happy. ALL YOUR LIFE you have
been seeking power.
YOU are the central dynamo which can release this
power you have longed for. You are surrounded by limitless
power. Yet this Power can do nothing until it is directed.
This is just as true of Spiritual Power as of electrical or steam
power. Your thought must give Spiritual power its direction.
You must decide what you want to express.
Your choice of ideas determines everything that comes into your
life. Choose those Words which mean something to you. They
will give your desire form. You must do your own thinking.
FIND YOUR PLACE IN THE DIVINE PLAN
Man's part in the Divine unfoldment is to recognize
what he really is, and through claiming his own to bring it through
into expression. Much of Man's confusion, sin, sickness, or
limitation has been the result of his denial of his Divine
nature. His belief in an existence apart from God has created
negative conditions. But his recognition, that God within him is
Complete, changes his order of living and creates abundant life.
THE INFINITE RESPONDS TO MAN
The substance of everything that man desires, the
essence of all life, fills and surrounds him. Man's word speaks
forth into form. It fulfills his idea or follows his thought
pattern. It responds to his desire, completely, when he is
scientific in his thinking and is convinced about the Truth upon which
MAN'S CONSCIOUSNESS MUST BE
FREED FROM LACK
Whatsoever negation exists in man's consciousness
must be eliminated; yet we must not fight negation. To do so
only gives it power. When we realize the Allness of Good,
negation has no existence. When we feel our oneness with
God-ness, nothing false can exist.
TREATMENT IS THE USE OF POWER A Mental or Spiritual
Treatment is definite mental work which expresses conditions according
to our desires. It does not take into consideration things as
they appear to be, but thinks in Creative Mind the condition as we
want it to be. The more specific our treatment, the more
positive will be our result. Creative Mind accepts our concept
and gives it form.
THE TRUE NATURE OF MAN IS DIVINE
A Treatment to be scientific must take into
consideration man's Real Nature. Obviously, man did not create
himself. The God Mind, which conceived man as a Perfect Idea,
endowed him with the power necessary to unfold this Idea. So
that man, the image and likeness of God, is the Real Man to be
unfolded. Man instead of being material and mortal can be
understood as a Spiritual Reality. He still exists in the God
Mind as perfect Being, and all of his experiences seek to reflect this
Divine nature. Health, joy, wealth, love and peace are
understood as the natural heritage of the God Man.
FOLLOW THROUGH A CREATIVE IDEA
When we recognize the power
contained within the idea which created us, we are unifying ourselves
with an Infinite Force. We should then realize that this power
which created us has never left us, BUT CAME FORTH WITH US, expressing
itself as man. So that health, joy and wealth become the
objective expression of this God Power. We do not have to create
these conditions, but by recognizing the nature of the original Power
we let this TRANSCENDENT PRESENCE manifest our desire in all that we
RECOGNITION OF THE POWER
ENABLES IT TO EXPRESS
The manifestation of this Power is complete when we
let it do its Perfect Work. When we can perceive God's Perfect
Idea of Perfect Man and accept this Perfect Idea, we open channels in
our expression whereby the God Idea may manifest. This is why
Jesus emphasized so many times that it was the Father within him which
did the work. The Spirit indwelling us brings out our true
