“We believe the ultimate goal of life to be a complete emancipation from all discord of every nature, and that this goal is sure to be attained by all.”
~ Ernest Holmes ~
The above quote is one of the tenets of Religious Science, from its statement, “What We Believe.” To me, it says, ‘no matter how many detours one may take, just like the proverbial prodigal son, everyone will eventually turn to the Indwelling Presence, and receive the gifts of higher consciousness.’
The process of awakening to our true nature is a gradual unfoldment into the “greater-yet-to-be” version of ourselves. The emergence of this heightened consciousness is often attained through trial and error while “the infinite lies stretched in silent repose.” In other words, the Divine Principle of Life is always ready to spring forth into the action of Perfect Love, which is, the healing balm for all things.
The Intelligence of God, operating through the intelligence of humanity, has proved Its Omniscience.
There is nothing impossible to attain. And, there are many ways illumination is ignited as it restores humanity’s sense of Wholeness. Science is breaking through barriers every day, on both physical and mental levels. For example, when I was a child, the idea of traveling out of space was science fiction, polio was not uncommon, and mysteries of the mind were stigmatized.
Although wise ones, in a declaration of Oneness, have said, “none of us are truly healed until all of us are healed;” Jesus, in his great wisdom, understood that even though the gift is offered to all – all do not receive it at the same time. In this regard he said, “You will always have the poor among you.”

Imagine, if you will, there is a great awakening throughout all humanity where it is clearly seen that the former things that once suggested separation, fear, and disease are now fallen away. Imagine that humanity has bonded in a common vision of harmony. Imagine individuals who, enthusiastically, give of their talents, skills, and abilities in their chosen field of endeavor, bringing about personal fulfillment. Imagine all this creating a world that works for everyone.
This graduation into higher vibrations and dimensions of perception is always taking place. While everyone, everywhere, may not be on board at the same time to fulfill the vision, I affirm there is enough of us, right now, through the power of Love, who are sufficient to be “my brother’s keeper,” letting the doorway to the infinite swing wide open into a new time, a new generation, a new way of being in the world.
There is an ever-expanding consciousness that can be likened to a continuum; and, humanity, moves from level to higher levels of Self-expression through various experiences; both individual and collective. I affirm we step boldly into our new experience of the world, fully equipped to move upward and onward in the endless unfoldment of the ever-evolving self. At the proper time, the baton will once more be passed on to the next generation, who, with the unconstrained love or union with the Divine Self, becomes the impetus for ever-flowing grace.
Some may say I’m a dreamer, but I’m not the only one.
“I feel love. I see love. I understand love. I AM LOVE.”
