Duality #treatment #duality #DivineMind #ScienceofMind #SpiritualLiving

Can you believe in one perfect Law of life and, also, believe in many other ways or traditions that may produce the same results? In fact, some people—many spiritual people—move through spiritual belief like they are trying on new clothing. They go from one store to the next taking the tasty delights that are offered at gratis. Some stay for a while. Others, move quickly to the next place, hoping to find something tastier, that fits better, looks better, or feels better.

I am not saying that making sure that you have found the right community of believers to grow with is not important—not at all. It is very important. But, once you find something that you believe in, do you also recognize that as soon as the course gets difficult that you move on? If so, you may want to read this blog.

I am going to focus in on how multiple belief systems can not only contradict each other, but nullify each other, as well. Specifically, if you are studying New Thought in the form of Science of Mind, which is the template of truth I tend to lead one to, this path is a solo path—at least at the beginning of your search for truth.

We can believe that other truths exist and will help other people. We can honor and respect those who believe in these alternate truths. But, if we expect to see clarity in our resolve of our own spiritual work, we must stay close to the one truth in the Law of Principle of that particular religion or science and focus on it, entirely.

What does that mean? Ernest Holmes in the Science of Mind says that we must “claim that no form of race-suggestion, belief in limitation, subjective idea of limitation, thought of karma, fatalism, theology or hell, horoscope, or any other false belief has power!”

When I read that paragraph this morning, I kind of cringed. What other religions and theologies have I been using to create my truth and my life besides the Science of Mind? Let’s look at a few of the “false beliefs” Holmes points out.

Karma is the spiritual principle of cause and effect where intent and actions of an individual (cause) influence the future of that individual (effect). How does Karma not align with the Science of Mind? It seems by the definition from Wikipedia that this law is specifically designed with the Principles of SOM, especially cause and effect. However, there is a particular part of Karma or the Law of Karma that most people believe that does not align. This, specifically, is where we must take a closer look. Most people who believe in Karma, also, believe we come into this world with some stigma from past lives and that these stigmas must be undone to move on toward something greater. This is the part of karma can undo your spiritual practice of SOM. If you set out, for instance, to treat for wholeness, but you also believe that your physical problems “might be” a result of having “chopped off someone’s arm” in another life, your mind is set to duality. You simply will not express healing in this area, unless you let go of the idea that you are being hindered by the karma of another life.

Fatalism is the idea that man is powerless to do anything other than what we actually do, including the idea that man has no power to influence the future or his own actions. This is very similar to Predeterminism. We can easily see that if we believe that we have no power over our own future, this will ultimately affect the principles of SOM. In fact, our entire belief depends upon the exact opposite of predetermination.

Theology and Hell: Holmes placed these two words together, purposely, because most religious theology believes in a Santa Claus-like god that rewards the deeds of the good and denies the needs of the bad; eventually leading the bad to hell or eternal damnation. If you believe in this kind of theology, how could this harm you in your spiritual movement toward enlightenment? First of all, this kind of belief breeds judgments of all kinds. When your focus is judging other’s behaviors as good or bad, you are likely to be harsh on your own self. Rather, if you simply believe that love and compassion are your measuring stick for life and for your future, then you can put away all of the other judgment of others and focus in on the only thing that you can control—your own belief. We must believe in the highest Law possible—that we are creators on this earth, made in the image of God. If we believe that, then we do release ourselves from being controlled by a lesser law.

Horoscope: This is the one word that stuck out like a sore thumb. I know that many SOM teachers, whom I know, believe in astrology. So, I investigated this one properly. First of all, a horoscope is an “astrological chart” that would conclude what your future holds. Not all people who believe in the basic tenets of astrology would go so far as to get an astrological chart and follow it to guide her toward future actions. For me, I simply say, “Virgo,” when people ask me what is my sign. But, from there, I don’t give it much credence, though I believe there is great significance in all of the universe and its tendency to be aligned with our lives. So, believing in the simple tenet that all things align in the universe, including the stars, is not contradicting any SOM principle. But, should you choose to believe in your horoscope OVER the idea that you have power in your thought and words in Divine Mind, then you have a contradiction that you must deal with to move forward in your SOM practice.

If you are learning the Principles of Creating with the Science of Your Mind, mapping out the important principles of SOM, and studying daily, you may want to put aside other such beliefs that seem to contradict what you are learning, for a time, at least. A master or doctor in this science would have no problem separating the two. But, someone who is initially studying these concepts would end up in dualistic ideas causing one to stumble, perhaps, in his or her initial attempts at using the Science of Mind tools to create a more prosperous and loving life.

Trust #treatment #PerfectYou #DivineMind #ScienceofMind #SpiritualLiving

I often wonder if Trust and Faith are the same thing. The dictionary defines them as almost the same. Trust is even a part of the definition of Faith, which leads me to believe that, perhaps, they are not. Maybe a person must trust someone or something to garner faith. Of course, all of this leads me back to my own trust or belief in God or in the Law that God created.

I lack trust in relationships. I lack trust in humanity, in general. I lack trust that anything good will happen in the world. I lack trust in much of what is needed in humanity to create a secure base to find that much needed faith. I ask myself why do I have such a lack of trust. The answer comes easily. I’m looking at the world or the manifestations of those things tangible to find faith.

Everything that I see with my human eyes in the world is ephemeral. I realize more and more everyday that nothing tangible IS trustworthy, including those friendships and familial ties that would suggest the most need for trust. No one or nothing lives up to the trust that I need to have faith in Humanity. But is my spiritual growth dependent on trust of humanity or trust in God?

Faith has never asked me to trust in humanity. Faith, however, as always asked me to trust in the Creator of All Things. Faith asks me to look at the world, the universe, and imagine the power behind all of the vast intricacies that created it. Behind this powerful force is an idea, a Law, a truth that has never been fractured from Love. This is what I must have faith in.

Here is the big issue with human trust. Where else is there to look for a template for trust but our own humanity? The human mind bases all of what it knows on things that it has seen in the past. I have only seen things that are tangible, therefore, my belief still comes up short of Faith in the Divine.

I want to trust. I know I need to trust. Faith is the subject of things UNSEEN… So, how do I garner what I have never really had? And from what source must it come from?

This morning, I read from The Science of Mind about healing the sick. Ernest Holmes keeps saying that to administer healing you must never look at the sickness. You can only look at or perceive your own spiritual wholeness and then know the person’s wholeness in whom you treat.

But, what if I have never experienced wholeness? How can I then imagine it completely? Again, I come up lacking. How will I ever treat with accuracy without this much needed faith in the unseen? How will I sow seeds into the subconscious and release my treatment to a Law I have never seen and FAITHFULLY TRUST that this entity will do or create that which I see, without this much needed Faith? Lack, Lack, lack again!

The answer to this question is in the part of the human brain that imagines and creates. The only place or mirror that we can understand God is in the metaphor of our own creative ability. Humans are the microcosm of what God is as the macrocosm. So, if this were true, then I must OBSERVE my humanity to find faith in God.

This seems contraindicated, since my humanity is filled with flaws. But, again, I am not asked to look at my human body to find this truth; I am looking at the essence of myself WITHIN the human body. This spiritual being that is godlike in nature is what I must learn to perceive to see my wholeness, your wholeness, and, ultimately, the peace and wholeness of the world.

I get to this place in meditation. I find it. Take a mental picture of it. And rehearse it almost constantly to hold on to faith. Faith is the substance of things unseen by the human eyes, but is certainly the substance of what is OBSERVED IN OUR CREATIVE MINDS.

To Whom Should You Go for Treatment #treatment #PerfectYou #DivineMind #ScienceofMind #SpiritualLiving

When you are feeling bad, or wake up disoriented not wanting to go to work, or actually you have manifested a physical illness, you need to know what kind of treatment to take. Then the decision of to whom to go to for that treatment come next. Treatment means the same spiritually as it does physically; however, one treatment speaks to the mental and spiritual side of the problem, and the other works on the physical body only. Our issue is to ask ourselves what kind of treatment do we need? Traditional medicine or spiritual mind treatment?

Last night, I wrestled with this issue a bit. I had a bad stomachache, which left me curled up in bed for a little while. I wondered if I should take some medication or pray or do both. (I’m not the kind of pray practitioner who disregards traditional medication. I’ll put that out there for all who are reading this. I take medications daily for a few old age problems that help my quality of life greatly. I’m thankful for traditional medicine all the time.)

But, I also know that I am whole in mind and body already and that I’m made of the very same molecules of healing that can treat the simplest of problems—a cut on the hand. If, the body can manifest healing in the simplest of issues like a cut, why can it not deal with the harder ones—like cancer? Are we simply not ready to allow our minds to do as the Master Jesus taught: “Physician, heal thyself!” Or are we floating somewhere in the middle of our spiritual faith, relying too heavily on doctors and not empowering our spiritual selves to do the work that was intended by God?

I don’t have the answer for this. I know that some great teacher like Ernest Holmes spoke of how spiritual mind treatment should work hand in hand with medicine. Holmes alludes to the idea that the amount of traditional medicine we need will depend upon our level of faith. So, is Holmes also saying that, perhaps, our spiritual power will someday—hopefully—be able to treat all illness (mind and body) perfectly without medicine? I guess, if this were the case, then we would be studying Christian Science, which believes in this premise.

I want the students of Truth to know that we are always working toward greater faith, which leads to stronger treatment as practitioners. We are all practitioners if we follow this premise of truth. We should be practicing the Laws of Truth daily with ourselves, for certain, and giving time, also, to those who ask for our good thoughts and intentions.

Prayer treatment is NOT just a two second thought. It is a deliberate amount of time seeing a situation solved and resolved in Divine Mind. So, when someone asks for your prayers, be very clear as to what the person is asking. Is your friend or client wanting you to sit down with him or her and say a prayer treatment? Or is this person simply asking for your good wishes? Treatment is deliberate and takes times. Makes sure you have time to give each person you tell that you will pray, the time they deserve in treatment.
