Concordia Lesson: Your Spirituality is Today’s New Elixir – Let’s Get High
SCIENCE OF MIND PERSPECTIVES:
People who expect to demonstrate principle [or some other good] must be very constant, very determined, very positive, very sure, and faithful with themselves, patient with themselves, long-suffering with themselves. - (Love and Law by Ernest Holmes, page 57.3). Dr. Holmes writes in his article, An Experiment in Faith, “. . . the greatest adventure in life would be an experiment with ourselves to see what we could do with this thing that is within us.”
It’s an experiment in self-discovery. And this self-discovery will lead to changes in your consciousness, “the manifestations of higher and higher concepts,” says Neville Goddard in Power of Awareness.
Use spiritual practices such as affirmations, prayer, spiritual mind treatment, meditation and visioning to plumb the depths of Mind. Use your imagination to image a desired idea. Pay attention to the inspiration that fills your thought processes. Listen to and be guided by your intuition. And have faith in that the Infinite Mind knows exactly how to do what needs to be done. Learn to understand the nature of conscious mind and the subconscious mind in the Universal and the individual. Learn the Truth of Being, to practice spiritual alignment. Learn how to effectively use Mind for “everything is mind and nothing moves but intelligence. There is nothing to move but intelligence.” (Love and Law, page 146).
“Every living soul is a point of personified God-consciousness, immutable, allness, power, now. You are not approaching the point [of God-consciousness] but you are that now. Fearlessly announce that you are the truth and nothing but the truth. Know that within you now dwells the eternal God, for all the presence, all the power, and all the God there is, is with you and in you now.” (Love and Law, page 146.2,3).
