Minister's Message for October 2016
"A new light is coming into the world. We are on the borderland of a new experience." Ernest Holmes, The Science of Mind, page 60.3
"We are pushed by pain until we are pulled by a vision." Michael Bernard Beckwith
GLOBAL TRANSFORMATION THROUGH INDIVIDUAL TRANSFORMATION
As we move into the colder, darker time of the year, we get to again remember the metaphor of the seasons - the appearance of death, of cold, of darkness; the bleakness which may remind us of inner hopelessness in some area of our life, whether inner or outer.
As the news bombards us with more and more of the shadows of the world, we may be tempted to want to hide, to cover up, to say, "Who am I and what can I do against such as this?" Time and again, both individually and collectively, the human race has stood at this precipice, wondering how and if it was to be crossed. Yet we also remember the Spring, the rebirth of light, warmth and joy that is on the other side of this dark abyss. It is during this time that we walk with, as Howard Thurman calls it, our "remembered radiance." In this darkness, we can find and be our own light.
We are not here to change others. We are here to embody and express the Light within us. By radiating our own Light, we send a resonance out into the Quantum Field. As we move from being the "probable human" to becoming the "possible human" - letting go of the story that might logically lead us into staying the same as we are and instead move into embracing the Truth that will free us from that story and awaken - metamorphize - the infinite potential already existing within us - we can create something truly new, an expression of the Infinite never before manifested. We are a philosophy - a teaching - of manifestation, of demonstration. Ernest Holmes tells us he'd rather see us prove - demonstrate - the teaching than learn all the wisdom of the world.
As we look at the world, we see old stories - racism, war, violence, greed, disregard for the environment, belief in separation, fear - playing out. In our own lives, we can see old stories of lack, not good enough, wrongness, belief in separation and the resulting fear - playing out. Only by shifting out of our story, into the Light of Truth - into the field of Infinite Possibility - can we begin to shift both within ourselves and within the world. This shift is completely possible. Let's demonstrate THAT! Walk in the Truth of your radiance.
Much Love and Light,
Rev. David RobinsonBack to Top
