“Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will never pass away.” 
~ Matthew 24:35 ~

But be doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving yourselves. For if anyone is a hearer of the word and not a doer, he is like a man observing his natural face in a mirror; he observes himself, goes away, and immediately forgets what kind of man he was. But he who looks into the perfect law of liberty and continues in it, and is not a forgetful hearer but a doer of the work, this one will be blessed in what he does.”
~ James 1:22-25 ~

“There is one mind common to all individual men. Every man is an inlet to the same and to all of the same. What Plato has thought, he may think; what a saint has felt, he may feel. Who hath access to this universal mind is a party to all that is or can be done, for this is the only and sovereign agent.”
~ Ralph Waldo Emerson ~

“The One Creative Power is expressing in you in a unique way and that it is always pressing against you, seeking a fuller outlet of its infinite possibilities.”
~ Ernest Holmes ~

Have you ever thrown a rock in a body of water and watched the ripples flow out causing a movement that touches everything within its radius?

Just suppose, for a moment, that six ripples touch six individuals who in turn throw a rock in the water.  Immediately thirty-six (36) individuals are then touched. If the momentum continues, using the same proposition; i.e., 36x 6/ 216 x 6/ 1296 & 6, etc., there is the potential to reach7 billion individuals in a relatively short order. 

The key word is potential. After all, everyone is not out fishing, or playing on the beach, or swimming in the pool; and even if one is near the rippling water; she may not be inclined to throw a rock back into the great universal medium.

Yes, like ripples of water, our thoughts, infused with our beliefs and motives are constantly touching the lives of those within the vibratory circle of our influence. The theory of six degrees of separation may support this idea.

It is always amazing to me when I hear my exact words coming back to me from someone I never met. Now, of course, those very words, like ripples of consciousness, had been received by me at some former time.

Can you imagine, with me, the power of our own creative word to heal anything and everything that is unlike the nature of peace, harmony, love, wisdom, joy – not only for ourselves but for everyone? Can you imagine, with me, the ripple effects of an idea that is so pure that it articulates clearly its motive and intent that it sheds light where there is darkness; love where there is fear; unity where there is separation; peace where there is anger; and joy where there is sorrow?

~ ~ ~ ~

The creative word that always fulfills itself is more than language. It is a state of mind, an embodied consciousness. It is like a ripple in the One Mind that keeps expanding, touching everyone within its vibratory range.   

Just think, a world that works for everyone is within our grasp. It begins with our beliefs, feelings, and thoughts, followed by our deeds and actions.
