Ernest Holmes

There is an inner meaning to everything; there is an inside to every fact; there is a hidden cause within every visible effect. This cause is the activity of Spirit.
The infinite, which is Limitless, is also what we call the finite, which appears to be limited, but the finite which appears to be limited, is merely the Infinite projecting at the level of the finite.
We live in a world which seems so real, and which is as real as it is supposed to be, but which has no innate reality, no self-determination, no volition or choice.
All effect is subject to its cause. In other words, nothing in our experience projects itself. Our individual world is only a projection of what is first conceived in mind. When the Mind withdraws its contemplation from any object, the object begins to disintegrate, whether it is the physical body when the spirit has deserted it or the body of our affairs when the creative action of mind no longer maintains the pattern for its existence, no longer holds it in the form which creative thought has already given it’
Unless our vision reaches higher, broader, and deeper than the state which we wish to change, how can we hope to change it? We must not become confused by the suggestion of appearance – real as it is, actual as it must be considered to be in human experience. We need to rise above any appearance to that spiritual level of causation above it before we can transform it.
It is not enough to know that God is. We must bring this knowledge into the activity of everyday life. God not only is, but God is in and through every human event. To see this spiritual Presence in things is to look at them in their true nature to reveal the perfect action of the Presence which dissolves all apparent Discord.
And So It Is
