September 22, 2007 & Right Action

In the scripture we can read, "In Him I live and move and have my Being" ... and in the Science of Mind, we know this "Him" Is Mind ... and in Mind I live and move and have my Being ... so whatever I accept for myself in Mind, is my experience ... this is "Right Action" ... and it permeates all of Life. As the Master Mind Jesus stated, "see the lillies how they grow" ... we know they grow, intelligently ... from an Un-Seen Omnipresent Intelligence that moves through all of Life ... and so we can accept this for our lives now:

I know and accept that All Is Mind and All Is Intelligence ... and as I think intelligently and consciously toward the things that I desire to experience, Mind intelligently responds to me in the affirmative. I accept that my Life is One with Right Action and that all that I do and all that I think ... is definitely poised toward the success and prosperity that I enjoy in Mind, now. I know that Right Action is the Law of the Universe and the Law of my Life ... and I move right along in mind with precision embracing the Good that I accept for myself. I know this is so ... for this is my predominant thought aligned with Right Action ... and this thought has no opposition ... either on Earth (physical) or in Heaven (Spirit) ... and so it is.

Keep the faith!

September 21, 2007 & Increase

The Law of the Universe is Increase, and all of nature responds to this Law. I realize that nothing remains the same ... everything is changing ... so let us put an "increase" of Good into our minds today and let the increase show up in our lives:

Knowing that there is only Love and only Law, I accept that the Law of Love, working through the Law of Increase, increases every Good thing in my life today. I accept an increase in success, in money, in health, in love and in happiness. I register the Law of Increase in my consciousness and witness It taking form in the things that concern me. Knowing that the Infinite is my Source, I realize there are infinite ways in which increase comes to me. I am blessed with understanding that this Law works for me, through me ... and as me ... and my thoughts are actively receptive ... reflecting the increase that I expect to be made manifest ... now.
And so it is.

Keep the faith!

September 20, 2007 & Believing

The Master Mind Jesus stated, "it is done unto you as you believe" ... and in the Science of Mind, Dr. Holmes tells us that "belief is God." And so we know we connect with God, Infinite Spirit, through our beliefs. Let's affirm the truth of this today:

I know and accept that there is only One Mind, and this Mind is God. I know that what I believe and accept for myself, is responded to in this One Mind. It is done unto me as I believe, and so today, I am believing only happiness, success, love, and prosperity for myself and for all who accept it. I know and accept that Infinite Mind sees what I believe and accepts this as the truth for me ... as All Is Mind and All Is God. I rejoice and give thanks that this is so ... and in this attitude of gratitude, I maintain only the highest and grandest beliefs for my life now. And so it is.

Keep the faith!

September 18-19, 2007 & Healthy Thinking

I began thinking of this treatment yesterday as I was being challenged health-wise, and although my thoughts were directed toward health, I found myself going over the treatment in my mind several times until the "appearance" disappeared. Oftentimes, we will find that treatment can be a continous process in our mind until it is complete. Let's affirm Health today and know that our healthy thinking will benefit each of us:

God is my Health, I cannot be sick. Whatever the appearance may be and no matter how pressing it may be on my mind, it truly is only a reminder for me to affirm the Principle of Health that is at the center of my being. I know that the spirit of me is healthy and strong, and as I realize and recognize the power of my own spirit, I eliminate and discard any ideas that contradict my healthy attitude towards life. I know that the Spirit of God supports me in my health and I open my mind to the flow of strength, harmony and peace ... allowing the physical body to reflect the healthy perfection of my consciousness ... now. And so it is.

Keep the faith!

September 17, 2007 & Confidence

I know and believe that I am One with the Mind that knows All things ... and in this understanding I am confident that my ideas for Good come to me from Infinite Intelligence desiring to express Itself through me, as me. I accept my place in the Universe as a center of God-Consciousness, and I know that the Good that I accept, is Good for everyone. I know this is so ... I believe it ... and I see it manifesting in my Life today as success, prosperity, enthusiasm, and happiness. And so it is.

Keep the faith!

September 16, 2007 & Living In The Present

Many of us are challenged to be fully present in the now. Books and magazines flourish on this subject, and yet, many continue to think to the past or to the future ... even though they may realize intellectually that being in the present is where we live; not the past or the future. Let's affirm our ability to live in the present moment fully:

As I realize that all the Good I seek is mine in the Now, I understand and consciously affirm that this moment is the moment in which I accept my Good ... for the Good that I seek is God ... and there is no "god was" or "god will be" ... only God ... and only Now. Knowing and accepting this as the truth for me, I accept in my mind this very moment a greater image and vision of my life as prosperous, successful, happy and at peace with all things that concern me. I know that the Good that I accept in this moment is mine in this moment and that no matter what point in time and space that I accept my Good ... it will be in the Now. My mind is open and receptive ... my heart is filled with gratitude ... my soul is in tune with the Infinite harmony ... and I am blessed immensely now ... and so it is.

Keep the faith! Rev. Bates
