These were just some of my questions growing up and like many of us I never really found a good enough answer. It wasn’t until around age 37 a friend brought me a 500 page book which he placed next to my laptop where it sat for a month before deciding to take a look at it.
The book is called “The Science of Mind”, written by Ernest Holmes (1887-1960). For me, this was the beginning of a new understanding of man and God. The minute I picked up this book and started to read the first page I felt I started to take my first steps toward enlightenment. I simply hated the notion of putting it down.
For too long people have been judging material results according to their own interpretation of the source of that perceived. This has resulted in a belief of the separation of God and man. We have evolved now to a consciousness that allows us to see that things are made from one substance – Infinite Spirit, which we call God. We must then realize that God and man are one always and that man is given the privilege of expressing God according to his or her individual understanding.
Many who have spent a good part of their life seeking the truth about who and what man is are in agreement that Infinite Spirit, God, or whatever symbol is used to refer to the All-Inclusive Intelligent Power running the Universe, has always existed. The more we learn about the inner or invisible world in which man exists, the more we realize that this invisible world is infinite and that man who was created in the image and likeness of the Infinite Intelligent Power is also infinite and has available to him an ever expanding intelligence.
We accept as truth that God is being expressed in many forms, one of which is man. It is only in the last few thousand years that man has evolved enough to begin to recognize or become self-conscious of man’s true potential or identity. Upon the awakening of this self-consciousness, man has made great strides along the way. It is my belief that Ernest Holmes had this understanding when he wrote this book and that it was his intention to share this great truth with as many people as possible.
If you find yourself asking similar questions or are simply seeking the truth, I strongly encourage and recommend reading “The Science of Mind”, one of the greatest eye opening metaphysics book ever written.
