Let Us Not Fool Ourselves

Share it Please
When working with consciousness to see the wholeness of creation, we must be careful not to slip into denial while affirming perfection.

(To see this video on YouTube, click here.)

Our founder, Ernest Holmes, wrote,

“In the Science of Mind we do not say everything is all right when it is all wrong. We do not say peace when there is no peace, but rather we try to discover what is wrong and why we do not have peace. We do not say that people are not poor, sick, or unhappy. We ask why these things should be if the Original Cause of all things is Harmonious, Perfect, Radiant, and Happy.”

(Living the Science of Mind, page 252).

I believe we must also be careful not to slip into blaming ourselves or others for the difficulties we encounter in life, but rather to rally together to love one another and to do what we must to raise our thoughts as high as we can. There is a difference between accepting a fact, and giving up. It is the way of metaphysics to acknowledge what is going on in the world, in our affairs, and in our bodies, while at the same time affirming that simultaneously a spiritual perfection is unfolding.

We train ourselves to be expectant of good, no matter what is currently happening, and to accept what is happening without accepting that things will forever stay the way that they are.

Best wishes,

Seeing Good At Work
I have been through the book three times over three years, and am starting it again. This is not because the material in the book is not working, but because it is working so well! The weekly lessons keep me on track and focused on what is actually true and important, and help me experience more good in every area of my life. LS
