I recently discovered Earnest Holmes and I'm glad I did, what an amazing man with an amazing mind. I think he was really onto something and if his ideas were taught in schools we'd have a lot more happy and fulfilled people in the world.

Can We Listen to God? 28 Dec. 2006
By John P. Morgan - Published on
Format: Paperback
I remember taking this book with me to the beach one day. It was a perfectly dreary day. Fog, Haze, you name it. It really was a crappy day for the beach. At the time, I was studying to become a Religious Science Practitioner and I wanted to do some "homework" while hanging out on the beach. I began to really enjoy Ernest Holmes' writing. Not only was it inspiring and deep, it triggered within me a knowing, a feeling, a deep, inner sensing that behind his words was the Infinite Love, the Immeasureable Peace, the Inexhaustible Joy that is God Itself. This book was no exception. He made the point that most people talk "at" God. This, for a lot of people, is called praying. They express to the Divine what they want, what they need, what they would like to see appear in their lives. This is fine, but it only goes so far. It also makes it seem as though our good is separate from us. Holmes' suggests "affirmative prayer" where we are in posession of what we want, need, and desire now. Our good is not in some future place...our good is not withheld from us...affirmative prayer is to "align" our mind, our heart, and our soul with the One Mind, the One Heart, the One Soul of God Itself. We become in posession of what we desire now mentally and emotionally. This is not trying to trick the mind or deceive the mind or even hypnotize the mind. This is simply believing that what we desire is ours now. How could it be anything but? If we are able to have the thought of our good, our good is ours and must come to us, through us.

Anyway, I put the book aside and decided to meditate upon some of the words that I found particularly meaningful. I closed my eyes to all the dreariness that was the beach that day and I began to breathe in...and I began to breathe out...I got in a rhythm of my breathing with the the waves crashing up on shore. I began to mentally and emotionally sense the Presence of the One Creative Power. I began to feel the Truth behind the Bible verses, "Seek ye first the Kingdom of God, and all things will be added unto you..." and "The Kingdom of God is not here or there, it is within..." And in my mind I just knew that I was One with God; that the eye with which I see God, is the same eye with which God sees me.

After about twenty minutes of the best meditation I ever had, Iopened my eyes and all I see was Golden Light. It was the most beautiful thing I had ever seen. Everything appeared to be lit up from the inside. I told my buddy who I went to the beach with, "It sure did clear up, didn't it?" He looked at me like I had six heads, "Uhhhh...yeah, whatever, John. It's a miserable day out today..." I was astonished that he would say that. Everything looked so bright, so beautiful, so filled to overflowing with Light and then slowly my eyes adjusted and the Light disappeared from sight. The clouds, the haze, the fog took over.

I often wondered about that experience and I came to the conclusion that what I was seeing, the Golden Light, was Infinitely more real than the gray haze. We don't sense God, or feel God in our activities because we "pretend" that God isn't present. We talk "at" God rather than "to" God because we think God is too busy to concern Itself with us. But just like waves that rise up out of the ocean are manifestations of the ocean and can never be separate from their Source, we arise up out of Spirit and we are never once separate from our Good which is also our God.

God is here.

God is now.

God is speaking to you now...are you listening? I was directed to writing this review. You were directed to read it. God is here. Sense the Presence, Feel the Presence, Know the Presence and know, feel, and sense that It is right where you are.

Get this great book...get two...get three...start a study group...a prayer circle where everyone participates in affirmative prayer and expect miracles to happen, because y'know what, they will!

Peace & Blessings to all,

john, 'the Light coach'

The message of this book is that every individual's good is already available and that anyone ready to receive can build her/his world by means of effective prayer. The ancient principles involved are explained with clarity and understanding. Holmes discusses the operation of divine principle as a law of cause and effect and how, when you impress your thought upon it, it is its nature to take that thought and bring it into manifestation in your reality. But there's something more than the law - an intelligence to which we may go for inspiration, guidance and direction; a power responding to us and a presence existing within us. In the author's own words: "Our communication with God must of necessity be, and always remain, an inner light; we communicate with the indwelling God." This is what the sages and mystics from all traditions have been claiming for thousands of years, and Holmes had a brilliant gift for delivering this ancient message in the 20th century. Not only that, but he has been proved correct in his prophetic vision. Remember, this book was compiled from his lectures in 1934, many decades before the stirring of what is now called "New Age" for want of a better term, and also long before the work of Carl Jung became widely disseminated. I love Ernest Holmes' engaging style and ability to explain difficult concepts in a simple way. Similar authors that I have found to be equally inspiring include Joseph Murphy, Catherine Ponder, Frederick Bailes, Ralph Waldo Trine and Thomas Troward.

Dr Holmes had a saying..."Change your thinking, change your life." I believe this book can assist anyone who is a Spiritual seeker to have a greater understanding of Spirituality.
