Science of Mind teachings of Ernest Holmes are to me a perfect, whole, complete a la cart of consciousness of love, light, Truth. A love that is all inclusive beyond the borders, bindings, or boundaries of conditions. A light that emanates from the oneness of essence of energy which is not separate from the essence of energy of the dark – but as one in the same. A Truth stated in scripture as Even the darkness will not be dark to you; the night will be like day, for darkness is as light to you – Psalm 139:12 NIV. Shakespeare wrote Nothing is good (light) or bad (dark) but thinking makes it so.
This essence of energy beyond finite of description Ernest Holmes calls The Thing Itself.
Science of Mind is to me a conscious philosophy of God Is. It is a conscious faith of I AM. It is a conscious embodiment of Love as all there is. Science of mind raises, praises, amazes us up in what Ernest Holmes called the “Personal Infinite.” This “Personal Infinite” is a state of Being Presence – transcendent of veils of precedents of conditions of the world. It is a shift from giving one’s power away to the belief of the conditions of the world as being cause. It is an awakening to the Insightful Truth that there is an integral First Cause behind each and every worldly effect. There is a Universal Mind, Spirit, Intelligence, that is the origin of everything: It is First Cause. It is God – shares Ernest Holmes.
Science of Mind does not teach to deny the experience, nor does Science of Mind call the experience an illusion. Science of Mind teaches – that illusion – is the seeing of the part – without the perspective of the whole. The Buddhists call this ignorance – meaning to be ignorant to the Truth that there is a bigger view. Believing the part to be the whole creates the seeming appearance (illusion) of lack, liability, limitation. And too, that of illness, scarcity, and conflicts of war. In whole of Truth – God’s Bounty is omniscience, omnipresence, omnipotence – awaiting only our return to the One Truth of all as perfect, whole, complete.
Science of Mind affirms “Change your thinking – change your life.” Change your thinking to the bigger perspective of Truth that there is nothing to be healed only Truth to be revealed. The Truth of consciousness as consciousness coming to know itself. Francis of Assisi stated begin by doing what is necessary, then do what it possible, suddenly you are doing the impossible. Choosing wisely from the a la carte of consciousness moves one from I can’t to I can to I AM – the I AM of all is well in my life.
Today’s Prayer: “Today I know illusion (dark) and Illumination (light) as one.”
