This year marks 20 years for Unity in Frederick. We will be looking back to honor our traditions – our roots – and looking ahead to envision and manifest our future. We will also be celebrating who and what we are in this moment!!!! We hope you will join us! As part of looking back to honor our roots, I will, from time to time, share the original words of Charles and Myrtle Fillmore in the newsletter, in a blog on the website and in lessons on Sunday. I would like to start this in this Thoughts of the Season. As you read Charles’ words, consider that, while the science might be a bit outdated, the parallels and conclusions drawn are spot on. Were the Fillmore’s still in this dimension, I am sure they would have been exploring the amazing new information and discoveries of our world and showing us how to find the deeper, spiritual meaning and how to apply them in our daily lives. Let me know what you think!
Lesson: The Fourth Dimension given on April 2, 1934
How man, by supermind thinking, can control and use the luminiferous ether of space.
All persons accept the fact that physical science is demonstrating that there is a luminiferous ether, or an element that interpenetrates everything, and like invisible wires, carries all impulses, energies - the original source of everything that appears. The worldly mind is not quick to acknowledge that this inner electrical kingdom is identical with what Jesus names the kingdom of the heavens, and described, by many comparisons, as the invisible source of power of marvelous things, and the home of redeemed man.
Sir James Jeans, one of England’s foremost physical scientists, says: “For aught we know, or for aught that the new science can say to the contrary, the gods which play the part of fate to the atoms of our brains may be our own minds. Through these atoms our minds may perchance affect the motions of our bodies and so the state of the world around us. Today science can no longer shut the door on this possibility; she has no longer any unanswerable arguments to bring against our innate conviction or free will.”
Man has imprinted on the sensitive plate of his soul unspeakable and immeasurable depths of feeling, seeing, hearing, knowing, which in his exalted moments temporarily inspire him. These can all be released by proper spiritual culture and become part of his abiding conscious life. In this lesson we are considering how man by supermind thinking can control and use the luminiferous ether of space.
The first step is to recognize that we live and move and have our being in it. The next, we must know that, as Jesus taught, we are Gods in the making, and that everything is prepared for us. We must accept the fact that just as physical science is demonstrating that in this ether there are invisible agencies that like invisible wires are carrying to our consciousness that which sets into activity supermind thinking, giving us complete control of mind, body, and affairs, so Divine Mind fulfills its plan in and through us.
As we open the window of our soul toward the spiritual center, in the top of the head, we shall find that we are releasing a fine spiritual essence, a soft light, that is descending and penetrating every atom of being. Its mission is to awaken the whole spiritual man. We can even feel it penetrating the soles of the feet and the palms of the hand. Let us “watch and pray” and unfold.
Jesus Christ’s last instructions to his disciples were along the line of manipulating and using omnipresence through supermind thinking. “I will give unto thee the keys of the kingdom of heaven; and whatsoever thou shalt bind on earth shall be bound in heaven; and whatsoever thou shalt loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.” (Matthew 16:19)
Affirmation: I accept as my very own the proclamation of the supermind, ‘All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth.’
