I picked up Ernest Holmes’ The Science of Mind for a word or phrase
a kite to fly against the grey that appear on the film
of my consciousness when I think
upon my fill in the blank life.
The Fog brought Despair and Circular Thinking
which is not totally unexpected….
but They have become unwelcomed by Sanguine Spirits,
Hahn (if you are Korean, especially if you are a Korean immigrant) and
Every day Patience.
From Chapter III, The Science of Mind
“Should all the wisdom of the universe be poured over us
we should yet receive only that which we are ready to understand.
The scientist discovers the principles of his science,
the artist embodies the spirit of his art,
the saint draws Christ into his being-
all because they have courted the particular presence of some definite concept.
Each state of consciousness taps the same source,
but has a different receptivity.
Each receives what he asks for, according to his ability to embody.”
Here and now, we are surrounded by, and immersed in, an Infinite Good.
How much of this Infinite Good is ours?
ALL OF IT!
And how much of It may we have to use?
AS MUCH OF IT AS WE CAN EMBODY.”
