"Delay is not Defeat" - Rev. Henry Bates [11-7-2008]

The Spirit of God fills my mind, my heart, and my soul, as I realize within myself that delay is not defeat. "Waiting on the Lord" is simply the process of my consciousness embodying the mental equivalent of that which I desire to experience.

As I experience the good that I seek, in mind, I move ever closer to manifesting that which I choose to experience in the physical. There is no defeat in God, and there is no defeat in me. The good that I seek is mine, and I rest assured that my personal relationship with the Infinite is my God-guarantee that it is mine to accept, to receive, and to enjoy, now.

My heart is filled with gratitude and great love for that which is within me that knows, and knows that it knows, that all is well, everything is working for my good, and I am blessed ... today and always.

And so it is.

"Let the Spirit move freely in Me" ... Rev-Henry Bates

Today and always, I recognize that I am in the Spirit and the Spirit is in me. There can be no separation from this One Life as I live, move, and have my being in It. As I identify with this truth I realize that the Spirit is seeking to express Itself through me, as me and for me, and I let It move freely through my heart, my mind and my soul. I know that in the Spirit my every need is met and "I shall not want" for any good thing. I know and I accept that in this moment, the images of good in my mind are a reflection of the desires of the Spirit for me to be experienced by me, through me. There is not a moment in my existence that the Spirit is not with me, sustaining me and maintaining my consciousness with Love, Happiness, Joy, Peace, Wisdom and Harmony ... these are the gifts of the Spirit and they are always available to me. No condition, no circumstance, no problem or failure can eliminate the Spirit from being ever-Present in my life. It is a joy to realize this, to recognize it as the truth for me and for every one. Spirit moves freely in me and there are no conditions, no limits, to Its ability to perfect that which concerns me, now and always ... for I am in the Spirit and the Spirit is in me.

And so it is. Amen.

"I Am That Too" ... Rev. Henry Bates

No matter where we go, there we are. And in the absolute we know that we are Spirit, Life and Truth. The Spirit lives in us and we live in the Spirit and we know this at the center of our Being as the truth. This spark of the Divine within us is the peace, the love, the joy, the wisdom, the beauty, that will always be within us no matter what we may face in this life or in the afterlife. These things of the Spirit are eternal and we shall possess them for eternity. Yet, only our recognition of this truth will reveal these things to us, in our self, and in others. And so we begin to recognize that the Spirit lives in us, enjoys life through us, protects us, guides us, and directs us to even greater and greater heights of joy and peace and love and beauty and wisdom. We can read in the ancient scriptures that "G-d so loved the world that this spirit of Love became part of all living things" ... we are a part of G-d, not all of G-d, but a precious part of this Divine Love. Let's believe this as the truth for us, for those we love, and for everyone. And in so doing, we shall experience more of this Divine Love in all things that concern us. Love will perfect that which concerns us ... as we recognize the power of Love. Whenever we think we need more beauty, we can know that we are a part of Beauty. Whenever we think we need more joy, we can know that we are a part of Joy. Whenever we think we need more love, we can know I am that too.

And so it is. Amen.

Eliminate Fear from the Subconscious Mind

This treatment was written by Kim Trout:

My mind is relaxed. I take three deep breaths and breathe in and out. I am relaxed and calm.

There is one life and that life is God. God is love and harmony; joy and happiness. God is divine right order and divine direction. God is one and the only power there is. Everything flows in and through God.

That life is my life now. Pure light and pure energy flow through me now and I am one with the power that created me. My mind is connected with the one infinite mind and knowledge, joy, love, and happiness’s pour through my spirit which is connected to God.

I claim now that in my subconscious and conscious mind that all fear is eliminated. I release the past that I have held onto and I am now a new confident person. The quality of my life is improved and I am safe in the universe. I accept change in my life and know that ahead of me are many new opportunities and wonderful experiences and I go for them all. The fear of poverty and the fear of loneness is out of my subconscious and conscious mind forever. I eliminate and say no to every negative and destructive fearful thought I have ever had or have. I am always protected at all times. I am in harmony with nature at all times and all is well. I sleep and move in complete safety. Nature protects me at all times and I am secure at all times. The universe always says yes to me. I rise above all negative thoughts and emotions. I have no limitations and health, wealth, and loving relationships are mine now. I see my magnificence now and others see it. By erasing all fear and negative thoughts from my life now, I let my light shine and know that God is directing me with divine right order. I am in the right place at the right time.

I thank God/Spirit/Universe for this gift of love and elimination of all fear in my life. I thank God for guiding me to trust the process of life. I am grateful that life is supporting me at all times and I have peace and harmony in my life now.

I now release this into the universe, knowing that I am in safe hands at all times, whether I am retired or camping in the forest or swimming in the ocean. I now let go and let God.
And so it is.

"My Word Is Law" ... Dr. Ernest Holmes

The Word of my mouth shall bear fruit.
It shall accomplish and prosper, and shall not return unto me void.
My Word is the law unto the thing where-unto it is sent, and it cannot come back empty-handed.
I send out my Word and it is the law unto my life.
My Word is the Law unto that thing where-unto it is spoken, and will become fulfilled in the right way and at the right time.
My Word is complete and perfect, and is the Presence and the Power of the One Mind that is in and through all.
I speak the Word and know that it will accomplish.
I wait in perfect confidence for the Word to fulfill itself in my life.
My Word Is Law.

And so it is. Amen.

Keep the faith!

God Restores Me to Perfect Health by Dr. Ernest Holmes

            The Spirit within me is God, that Spirit is perfect.  That Spirit is divine, whole, happy, complete.  Spirit of Infinite Peace is with me, that Peace - poised in perfect life, complete in perfect happiness - that Spirit within me is God and is Whole.  That Wholeness is perfect now.
            God is immediate Presence and an immediate Experience in my mind and soul, and I am conscious of this Perfect Presence, this Divine Wisdom, this Eternal Wholeness.  Now I recognize that the Principle of Life is in me and around me and operates through me; that It has no want, has no fear, has no doubt, has no limitation.  There is that within me which guides me into opulence, into success, into harmony and love and beauty and friendship, and It does this in peace, in joy, in certainty.  I let that Divine within me - using whatever method It may - restore me to perfect health, perfect happiness and harmony and bring into my experience everything that is good, that is perfect, that is true and successful.

            I am not only one with this Spirit, but this Spirit is all that I am.  It is my whole being, and this Divine Wisdom is in my thought, causing me to act and move intelligently, to make right choices and to follow right pursuits.  There are no problems in this Divine Wisdom.  Therefore, the road is made straight before me; every obstacle is removed and I am led - irresistably led - to the Absolute, certain goal of Good, of accomplishment, of success.
                God Restores Me to Perfect Health .... and so it is, amen.

Living in the Spirit - Rev. Henry Bates

There is a rhythm in the Universe and I am in rhythm with it. I am enjoying this dance with Life which expresses love, joy, happiness, peace, beauty, harmony and freedom. I know that the Spirit is seeking to express all these gifts of the spirit through me and so I align my mind with the rhythm of the Spirit knowing that I can enjoy the best of times and the best of everything as my mind is filled and thrilled with the joy of being in the presence of G-d.

I am conscious, enthusiastic, and joyfully expecting to live to the fullest of all things good today and every day for I know that the Spirit is guiding me to the way to a wonderful life, now, right now, right where I am. I know that the Law of G-d responds to the impress of my thoughts and manifests in my experience as the thing that I give my attention to ... the thing that I love the most ... the thing that brings the greatest feeling of joy into my heart, my mind and my soul. I let go and let the Spirit express through me and release the imprisoned splendor of my soul, out-picturing this bliss into my every experience ... as I experience the life abundant to a greater measure than even my highest expectations. I love Life, and Life loves me back today and always.

And so it is ... Amen.

Keep the faith!

"The Presence and the Power of Love" - Dr. Frank E. Richelieu

I no longer seek after love. I no longer try to love. I know that Universal Love is within me is the core of my being. I do not create it, manufacture it, force it or find it. The only thing I can do is to realize that love is what I am and what divine Mind is, what others are and what the world is. I let myself be love in expansion today, for this is the natural expression of my being.

I turn away from the past. Whatever has been ugly in my life, I turn away from it. I leave the mud-consciousness of criticism, negation, self-condemnation and hostility. I fasten myself to the rock of principle within me. I see the beauty and worth of my true being. This enables me to love myself and to love others.
And so it is!

Keep the faith!

The Way To A Wonderful Life, Jesus and the Science of Mind Series 1.1

The audio for this video is from the radio program broadcast on January 5, 2011.  It is 1 of 3.  To listen to the complete broadcast go to for the other to segments.  Each year Science of Mind ministers review the first four Introductory Chapters of The Science of Mind, which is the "essence" of the philosophy.  This year I have made the decision to weave into this "Review" the philosophy of the Master Mind Jesus to reveal the synergy between the two philosophies.

Keep the faith!
