YOUR FREEDOM TO BE

Freedom is more than the absence of bondage.  Freedom is the activity of a free Soul or Spirit that knows the truth of its own identity and functions in the Creator’s plan of universal good.  To be free we must accept and exercise the right of self-choice which constitutes individuality.

 

The opening chapter of Emilie Cady’s classic book:  “Lessons in Truth,” poses the timeless question . . . “Bondage or Liberty, Which?”  All suffering is the result of the belief that we are in bondage to the things and circumstances of the world.  True freedom is a choice we make to live our lives in the spiritual awareness of the indwelling Infinite Presence and choose the level of consciousness on which to deal with human experiences. 

 

We are here for a great and wonderful purpose and to take our own divine place in the universe, balancing serving the invisible and adjusting to the visible.  Charles Fillmore wrote:  “Freedom is the quality or state of being which results in regulating one’s life according to Principle, not according to what anyone else may think or say.  This always leads us into paths of peace, harmony, and prosperity.”

 

Rev. Helice Greene

 

POVERTY TO POWER

Life requires thought to be linked to purpose or there is no intelligent accomplishment.  Each one of us must set our sails rather than drift through life.  Self-control and true concentration of thought power open the heart and mind to receive.

 

Without purpose it is easy to fall into the negative world of fears, doubts, and worries.  Indulgence is not a part of the prosperity plan.  A healthy attitude regarding giving and receiving opens the way to the universal resources.

 

Dreamers, those with the wider vision, are the Saviors of the world.  Allow yourself to dream, hold the vision of the promised land and move forward to take possession of the good you are seeking.

 

Remember calmness of the mind is the jewel of wisdom.  Within you is the Master Teacher saying, “PEACE, BE STILL.”

 

Let us use the affirmation:  “I breathe in the breath of life and let divine wisdom guide me.

Rev. Richard Billings

KEEP THE FAITH

Recently I opened an envelope.  It contained a very simple three-word message: “Keep the Faith.”  I smiled to myself as I remembered back in my college days when this was a catch phrase.  While it was used in many different arenas such as politics, sports and even relationships, it always served as a phrase of encouragement.  It often came at a time when things seemingly were not going well – perhaps when defeat was looking more likely than victory.

 

Faith is one of our Twelve Powers, and an important one.  It is our capacity to see that which is not yet visible.  It enables us to understand Divine possibilities even in the face of evidence to the contrary.  It is a valuable tool as we progress along our journeys providing we form our visions in alignment with Spirit rather than ego. 

 

“Keeping the Faith” is not always an easy thing to do.  There are so many possible distractions both threatening and alluring.  These serve to get us to focus and respond either out of fear or fantasy.  Either way, the ego’s objective is the survival of self rather than the emergence of SELF. 

 

“Keeping the Faith” is much more than a call in response to any singular problem or issue.  It is a commitment to a way of life that reflects an awareness that life is in constant relationship with Spirit.  It is a singular focus that allows us to see problems as opportunities to leap forward along our paths.  It provides us with the currency that is needed notwithstanding the size of any obstacle that lies before us; it is a currency that truly merits the phrase, “In God we trust.”
