I am a Religious Scientist, it is my faith and my understanding of the way life works. Religious, because it takes me to a higher plane of thought where I can be in the presence of the Great Soul, the Divine Mind, the indwelling God and the most High God which are one and the same. My faith is based on the deepest belief in a Higher Power and at the same time it is governed not by superstition or magic but by Divine Law.
The Science is in the Law which always works in exactly the same way each and every time we use it. There is cause and there is effect and neither you nor I can escape that basic Law of the Universe. For every action, there will be an equal and corresponding re-action. Hit a ball into a window, the window will break and you will be called upon to buy your neighbor a new window.
The love you give likewise is returned to you pressed down and multiplied; as are the errors that you commit.
Science in Religious Science is the absolute predictability of the Law, both physical and spiritual. Drop an iron ball and it will always fall to earth. Not one time will it fly up into the sky. When you go to bed you need not worry that you will be on the ceiling. Law is constant and it is knowable and predictable.
Just as physical laws may be depended upon, so are the Spiritual Laws instituted by Spirit. What you put out you will receive in like measure, pressed down and overflowing. No one is exempt from what most people call “what goes around, comes around” which we call the Law of Compensation.
We can heal by using the Law, we can prosper by using the Law, we can have success beyond measure or sorrow deeper than the deepest ocean.
As we think, so we are. Your thoughts are creative, they are alive and they create your world. You are licensed by God on the day of your birth to create Heaven or Hell in your life. You speak the cursing or the blessing out of your mouth. Your choice, each and every day. You will experience what you think, say and do. You are the architect and author of your life experience.
This is what St. Paul meant when he said “think only things of good report”.
You can heal any condition with the speaking of your word, if you believe. You can create any condition with your word and your belief. You have a power that you may have never realized before.
There is a Great Power in the Universe and you can use it. That is what we teach in Religious Science, which is the teaching of the Science of Mind.
Until we are together again…..be well, think well and speak well.
