Minister's Message for August 2015
"When is the last time you bathed in possibility? Too often we are limited by our own thoughts. We adjust to reality and let it dictate our potential. Yet our possibilities are bigger than the moon and wider than the sea. Bathe in the infinite possibility of it all. You are more than you know." A Knock on the Door Calendar, August 2015
The eighth lesson of Emma Curtis Hopkins' masterpiece of metaphysics, Scientific Christian Mental Science, is "Rending the Veil." The core of the lesson is "be not deceived."
Spirit never deceives, It is simply Itself. Only "matter" - the world of appearances - deceives. In the story of Job, his two friends describe one kind of God - Job describes another. This whole story is to illustrate the path of "keeping thine eye single" - or focused on the Truth of Spirit, no matter the outer appearances. Eventually, the friends experience the kind of god they described, while Job is restored to his full Good.
Emmett Fox, a New Thought writer of the last century, tells us that all problems can be solved by thinking on God. Since God is all Good and every problem we encounter is our belief in a lack of some form of Good, and since what we put our attention on, grows - putting our attention on what we want grows more of what we want.
So, what do you speak of? Do you speak of the Light, the Life, the Power, the Good? Or do you speak of the lack, the worry, the fear? Either will manifest - the Infinite shows up as how we imagine It. We need to say, with God, "Let there be Light." Jesus tells us "the righteous (those who are in alignment with Spirit) shall shine like the sun."
This month, I invite you to shine like the sun - to shine with the Light of Spirit which is already within you. You don't have to beg for it, ask for it, seek it - it's already expressing AS you. Take an appearance that may have baffled you for how to have it turn out right and speak the highest Truth you can into that situation in your mind. Don't be deceived by the appearance, let go of fighting with appearances and keep your inner eye focused on the Light of Truth. Watch the shifts that begin taking place in your life as you do.
"Around us and before us, in the plain sight of our mind, our spirit, and our soul, is our perfect power, ready to rise to accomplish the works of God." ~~ Emma Curtis Hopkins
