“O Lord my God, thou art very great … the earth is satisfied with the fruit of thy works.”
Limitless MIND-INTELLIGENCE expresses man and the universe. We are the fruitage of the fecundity of SPIRIT-life, MIND-health, and LOVE-power. Inexhaustible and teeming MIND is giving our lives immeasurable and exuberant riches of mind, heart and experience.
“For the earth bringeth forth fruit for herself: first the stalk, then the head, then the full corn in the head.”
It is the fecundity of MIND-LOVE that impels us to be healthy, courageous, wise, innovative and fruitful.”
“Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning.”
Ever-giving SPIRIT pours into our being indestructible health, talents and means. SPIRIT-substance re-engineers us each day so that we can express more of our illimitable, empyrean abilities. Our outstanding, exponential essence is from SOUL, “it cometh down” to us from “the Father of lights.”
“I tell you the truth, anyone who has faith in me will do what I have been doing. He will do even greater things than these, because I am going to the Father” (New International Version).
The fact is that superlative PRINCIPLE-LOVE expresses in us infinite abilities, brilliance, grace and effectiveness. Everyone is spiritually blessed and when thought is coalescing with TRUTH we are formidable divine forces for accomplishing admirable good. We are the oeuvre of SOUL, the dynamic outcome of the Self-revealing EGO.
“…by their fruits ye shall know them.”
SPIRIT-TRUTH instigates bounty, peace, health, excellence and beauty in us and everywhere. Our conscious communion with TRUTH excises material hindrances. Take for example the bleeding woman who Jesus healed. The religious teachings of his day turned her into a social outcast, and condemned her. Jesus’ sense of TRUTH-LOVE accepted her. In turn, by accepting the altering power of Christly love/wisdom she was healed.
“For of him, and through him, and to him, are all things: to whom be glory forever.”
PRINCIPLE-MIND manifests all that is real. Decaying and aging matter, sinful personality and material genetics are overridden by the preeminence of our spiritual selfhood. We are of SPIRIT, through SPIRIT, and to SPIRIT. Our SPIRIT-selfhood is endowed with all that SPIRIT has, including beauty, majesty, eternality, wholeness and plenty. This understanding changes our perceptions and behavior, and it ejects pain, illness, blight, decay and lack.
“Show your own self in all respects to be a pattern and a model of good deeds and works, teaching what is unadulterated, showing gravity (having the strictest regard for truth and purity of motive), with dignity and seriousness.”
LOVE-TRUTH impels us live with humility, generosity of spirit, patience, fidelity, love and joy. These mental tones emanate from SOUL’s universal, spiritual symphony. They excise egotism and pride, and keep us from taking our human personality too seriously. By being concordant with SOUL-MIND we have access to infinite goodness, talents and grace.
