Celebrating Science of Mind Through the Holy Days

Thou Art That by Joseph Campbell is this month's book.

The hour of freedom has struck, the bell of Liberty is ringing, and "Let him that is athirst come." Let us, then, plunge more deeply into our own natures and into the nature of the Universe and see if we shall not find treasures undreamed of, possibilities never imagined and opportunities which the fond thought—yearning for freedom—has often, in our vision of the greater Life, given us.  (Holmes, Ernest. The Science of Mind (Kindle Locations 851-855). Kindle Edition.

It is in this moment of time that we are to make the great decision. It is in this day in which we now are living that we must choose what path we are to follow. Shall we live in fear or in faith? Shall we live in confusion, or in the peace that comes from a deep and abiding conviction that there is a power greater than we are, ready, willing, and able to work for us?

It cannot and does not borrow its light from another…It springs from within, coming from the wellspring of Self-Existence. It is a revelation of the self to the Self…one’s own at-one-ment with Reality.”   SOM, Ernest Holmes, Page 446

We do believe that in the unique personage of Jesus this Christ was more fully orbed than in any one of whom we have on record.  We do believe that in the person of Jesus, more of God was manifest.” ~ Ernest Holmes, The SOM text page 359

 

The SOM text page 359, he further says:

“We must understand the Christ is not a person but a state of being.  It was impossible for Jesus not to have become the Christ as the human gave way to the Divine as man gave way to God as the flesh gave way to Spirit.” ~ Ernest Holmes, The SOM text page 359

What we have to recognize is that these celestial bodies represented to the ancients two different modes of eternal life, one engaged in the field of time, like throwing off death, as the moon its shadow, to be born again; the other, disengaged and eternal. The dating of Easter according to both lunar and solar calendars suggests that life, like the light that is reborn in the moon and eternal in the sun, finally is one." ~ Joseph Campbell, Thou Art That 

 “It is not, then, in lavish gifts that we find true giving, but in the sweet simplicity of remembrance, in the kindly thought, the tolerant mind, and the gentle act. Love alone can give love, sympathy alone can sympathize, and only goodness can really do or be good.” ~ Ernest Holmes, 1929
