Yesterday a great man died who spent most of his life working for freedom. Today I watched a video from Mary Morrisey where she recounted her meeting with Nelson Mandela. She had asked him how he’d gone from being an angry young man to one who was known for promoting peace. He told her he had to make a decision, and then honor that decision, one moment at a time.
Dr. Holmes writes in the Science of Mind “The one who wishes to demonstrate some particular good must become conscious of this particular good, if they wish to experience it.” Mr. Mandela’s decision was made in prison where he lived in for 27 years. That means the only place he could have become conscious of the ‘particular good’ was in his mind.
He told Mary Morrisey that he constantly had to ask himself “If my being in this moment were actually part of something much bigger, much more important, then how would I be in this moment?” We now know that a small jail cell can’t stop one who has a greater idea.
What ‘particular good’ do you want? How would you be if it was already true? Be that! We no longer have any excuses.
I know there is only one Mind – the infinitely intelligent Mind that is the Source and substance of all. The energy of this Mind fills me so completely I think It is my mind, however it’s my use of this One Mind that is co-creating my reality.
Knowing this, I am open to becoming conscious of the particular good I desire. This good not only benefits me, but it serves the highest and best for all. I now live each moment as if the good I desire is here now. Whatever my good is, it is God in form, and I celebrate that!
Gratefully I release these words into the Law of Mind, knowing they are already so. And so it is.
