Dear Ones,

There is only one Mind, God, Infinite Good, Infinite Love, Infinite Truth. This Mind rules and governs all. This Mind is my mind now.
The Life, Love and Mind of God are in action in me at this instant. I am filled completely with the light and Spirit of Truth. Through my mind God thinks. Through my heart God expresses Divine Love. Through my body God expresses perfect life, health and vitality. There is no life, truth, substance nor intelligence in evil; God, the Good is all there really is, and I am surrounded and filled with It.
In my life God is the only activity now taking place. I have spiritual wisdom, spiritual perception and spiritual discernment. I love Truth, speak Truth, rejoice in Truth, for God is Truth. Amen
Raymond Charles Barker

I love this Spiritual Mind Treatment. It says it all. Imagine what our lives would be like if we really believed it!

A church I drive past often inspires me with its marquee statements. This week’s is “Want a new life? God takes trade-ins.”

If we really embodied the above S.M.T as our Truth, isn’t this what we’d be doing – trading the life we are living now with its limitations for one of limitlessness? Trading a life of physical, mental or emotional pain for one of peace?

Go ahead – read the Treatment again – and read it with as much feeling and belief as you can. Read it out loud. Read it until you really FEEL it, and watch what happens in your life!!

Blessings, Rev. Angelica
