Lesson: You’ve got the POWER and you’re using it, but HOW?
Lesson By: Rev Ian Taylor
Dr Ernest Holmes on these matters:
Science of Mind Magazine: God decreed your good long before you ever came into self-consciousness. This is why the Bible says that before they call He will answer.
Observations (1968): It is not enough for us to say that God is all there is. That statement was true before we said it. But if we wish to demonstrate the availability of this higher Power in human experience, when we say, “God is all the Life there is” we must add: “That Life is my life now.” “God is Good; that Goodness is mine.” “God is Substance; that Substance is now my supply.” That Divine thing within us, that creative Energy and infinite Intelligence which functions through us, which is God the living Spirit Almighty, must be directed in our lives. We must link our thought with the thought of the Infinite.
Love and Law (2001; teachings 1918-1920): If you could realize the tremendous power of attraction that holds everything in its place, it is yours, it is yours, this gift. It is the divine birthright of every living soul. Now, we must open up the doors of our consciousness and expand and expand and expand.
Thoughts Are Things (1967): Your word has power because your word is the action of God through your thought.
Declaration of Principles/What we believe: WE BELIEVE the ultimate goal of life to be a complete freedom from all discord of every nature and that this goal is sure to be attained by all
