September 15, 2007 & Soldier's Prayer

The War debate continues in both the U.S. and other countries around the world, and that is a fact. But no matter what our opinion of these wars or of war in general may be, let us take the time today to pray for all the soldiers across the globe who are doing that which they are called to do:

I fix in my mind the idea of security and safety for all the soldiers in the world. I know that the soul of each soldier is an expression of Infinite Spirit ... and I know that this military experience goes beyond this moment in time and is part of the Divine Plan to call us back to remembrance that we are One, One in God, for this is our ultimate purpose on this planet. I know that each soldier carries with them a "part of God" ... and I know that the spirit of these courageous men and women is part of the collective seeking of the Good; Peace, Harmony, Light, and Love ... and I am knowing that right where they are ... God Is ... and in this knowing I can realize that God sustains them and maintains them in Its Eternal Love and Life ... and so it is. Keep the faith! Rev. Bates

September 13-14, 2007 & Mystery

Yesterday, I was so focused in my mind on treatment and I worked with treatment for so many people, I actually thought I had posted a treatment on this blog ... but to my surprise! ... I had not. But, I am knowing in consciousness, that all who were receptive to the affirmation actions of my mind aligning with the One Mind ... received inspiration. One of the mysteries of spiritual mind treatment is that it is just as effective in "absentia" as it is, in person ... for there is only One Mind ... and we all use It.

Today, I declare and affirm that something incredibly wonderful is happening to everyone who is receptive to this treatment ... and as I announce this in Mind, I know that everyone who accepts this Good shall be uplifted and inspired to attract to themselves today the Good that they desire to experience. I know from the depths of my soul, that this Great Un-Seen Presence moves through each of our lives in the most tremendously satisfying way. And I am certain that the Good that we desire is possible, available, and present ... and as our awareness is lifted higher ... we accept and receive that which is ours. And so it is.

Keep the faith!

September 12, 2007 & God-Active

I know that the Power of God Is active in my life today ... that all that concerns me is harmonized with success and prosperity. I know that as I affirm the Presence of God, this Presence is revealed to me in all that I do and all that I am. I accept great success today and prosperity. My consciousness is permeated with the Principle of Success, and success is demonstrated now. My consciousness is permeated with the Principle of Prosperity, and prosperity is demonstrated now. I announce the activity of God, Infinite Good, and God never fails me. All that I do is a testimony to God's faithfullness to those who feel Its Love and Power. I am blessed immensely ... and I share this blessing with all others ... now. And so it is!

Keep the faith!

September 11, 2007 & Remembering 09/11/2001

Today, the nation and the world remembers September 11, 2001 ...

Today I recognize that God's Infinite Love continues to embrace all those personally affected by the events of September 11, 2001. I know that God's Perfect Love surrounds each one of these beautiful spirits here and in the here-after. I know without doubting that no one is left out of the Kingdom of God, the Kingdom of Love ... for It is Omnipresent and Omnipotent. I know that God's Perfect Grace heals, blesses, and comforts each at the point of Life where they are, now and always. And so it is.

God Bless You and God Bless Us All,
Rev. Bates

September 10, 2007 & Calm-ness

One of the great benefits to a spiritual practice of meditation and daily prayer-treatment is that we develop a calm-ness within that remains with us no matter what is happening around us. This is a gift of the Spirit, but we must prepare our mind to accept it:

As I remain true to my faith and belief that God is always with me, I know that Good prevails in all things that concern me. I move through each experience of my life knowing that this Infinite Power we call God, is ever-present and always harmonizing the conditions and circumstances that I find myself in. I loose any temptation within me to feel anything but cool, calm, and collected ... as I center myself in Principle; All Is God, All Is Good ... and no thing shall offend me ... as I move into my greater experience of health, wealth, love, and happiness ... now. And so it is.

Keep the faith!

September 9, 2007 & Open-ness

Most people in metaphysics are fairly open in their thinking, but one of the areas that can be an opportunity for spiritual growth for many of us, is to be open to the people we don't agree with. In a world of Omnipresent Good, every experience and every interaction with people is an opportunity for spiritual growth, because the way in which we "react" to experiences and people determines our capacity to express more of our spiritual awareness; which is our awareness that we are God in expression; expressing Love, Joy, Harmony, Happiness, Peace and Understanding (Light). Let's us know now that we have an infinite capacity for expressing the Good that God Is:

My mind is open to the Divine influx of Love and Harmony and I express these gifts of the Spirit with great Joy and Happiness. I know that Understanding guides me to a Peaceful result in all things that concern me and that my relationships and experiences with others give me the opportunities to express more of the God-in-the-midst-of-me, the Perfect Expression of God-as-me. My mind is never closed to anyone ... and no one is left out of my capacity of Love and Understanding. I realize and actualize my faith and beliefs in my One-ness with God, Infinite Presence. I am not satisfied to merely speak my Word but I put my words of faith in action in all that I do and all that I experience ... today and always. And so it is.

Keep the faith!
