To try to describe the infinite many would say is a fool’s errand. And yet as spiritual beings housed in an earth suit, there is this irresistible urge to define the indefinable. Thus, religion and spiritual avenues have sought to break down the Infinite into bite-size, digestible pieces for our human minds to comprehend. Christians have done so through the ages by means of the Trinity – Father, Son, and Holy Ghost. Science of Mind founder, Ernest Holmes, developed a Metaphysical Chart also with three elements: Love or Spirit, Subjective Mind or Law and Form or Effect. One of Holmes most repeated quotes is “Love points the way and Law makes the way possible.”
God, Spirit, the Infinite, is unconditional Love. It gives without ceasing, pressed down and _ owing over. Anything is possible and nothing is outside Its capability. That power and presence resides within our very heart and soul. Our belief, the words we speak and the thoughts we think, comprise the “Law” of our being. Jesus the Christ told us, “It is done unto you as you believe”. It is through our belief, primarily subconscious in nature, that the effects or results of our lives come forth. Infinite Spirit, Love, moves through the Law of our being to produce our life’s experiences.
Realizing and recognizing what our true beliefs are is of utmost value. Helpful tools we use in New Thought are affirmations and denials. We affirm the positive and deny the negative. This is a sort of “fake it until you make it” approach. We can use affirmations others have written, but the best ones are those we write ourselves. The power comes from not just mouthing words, but having a sure acceptance and conviction they are true. You have to feel or embody that positive energy.
Say with me: “I am always guided by Infinite Love within me to bring about my highest good. I trust my God-Self and am grateful to be Love in action this very day. My life is amazing and wonderful. And it is so.”
