Dr. Ernest Holmes, the Founder of
Religious Science, made the statement that whatever it is that we think
about 51% of the time ... we manifest in our experience. Even
though many sincere people pray or do treatment daily, until and unless
our predominant thoughts are in alignment with our goals, nothing
happens. I know many people who have studied Religious Science and
attended church services for years, who continue to be at a stand-still
with the things in their lives that they want to accomplish. I
also receive message after message from people who have studied the
Bible and define themselves as Christian, who are still struggling with
conditions and situations in their lives... and I receive messages from
people who have pretty much rejected God and religion .. and are at a
stand still in their lives. In other words, it really has little
to do with our religious practices but more to do with understanding how
IS AFFIRMATION ... when we are sick we desire health for health
is Life Itself ... when we are sad or discouraged we want harmony and
joy for these too, are Life Itself. I firmly believe that
everything happens it its right and perfect time and we have everything
we need to have in the right and perfect time ... money, knowledge,
cooperation, whatever it is. But ... many of us can often find
ourselves dealing with frustration, depression and even sometimes,
anger, because we allow ourselves to become separate and apart from our
Good .. God. We do this by forgetting that LIFE
IS AFFIRMATION. Oh yes, we will tell our friends and others
that everything is good and all is well, but in the house that we dwell
(our thoughts) we are feeling the sting of disappointment and impatience
... and we forget to remain in a state of mind that is affirmative.
As we move in mind from the affirmative we delay or deny our Good ...
the Good Is available ... we just cannot manifest it.
I have often stated
that the "Science Of Mind," the philosophy taught by Religious
Science, could even be more appropriately titled "Disciplining The
Mind," for in truth that is what we must do ... we must discipline
and train the mind to "think
affirmatively" at all times, so that affirmation becomes our
predominant thought. Now, this does not mean that we are affirming
something that is not true ... or that I am telling you that we must all
become a bunch of senseless Pollyannas who do not face the facts before
us. What I am teaching is that when we speak and think in the
affirmative, we are speaking and thinking from the "results"
of what we desire ... or as some metaphysical students would say, "from
the demonstration" ... our Good results or demonstration Is
already Present in the Great Invisible. As the Master Mind Jesus
taught, "ask knowing that it Is" ...
because that is the Truth.
As we go through our day, we must
keep uppermost in mind that the words that we use and the thoughts that
we think are all working in the Invisible Law Of Attraction ... we must
train our thoughts and discipline our mind to affirm the Good ... to
speak affirmatively knowing that It Is. Our
willingness to find the right words in any given situation that are
affirmative strengthens our prayers or treatments and this firm-ness in
staying the course moves us ever-closer to bringing the Invisible into
the Visible ... keep uppermost in mind, "there is nothing to heal,
only God (Good) to be revealed." AFFIRMATION REVEALS THE
So It Is!
