Trusting in the Father-Mother Principle

"Believest thou not that I am in the Father, and the Father in me? the words that I speak unto you I speak not of myself: but the Father that dwelleth in me, he doeth the works." (John 14: 10)
At the local newsagent this morning I met a woman and her kids, who I often see at the bus stop. We exchanged greetings. She seemed preoccupied with her errand to have a chat, while her kids ran round the shop oblivious to what their mother was doing. When she'd finished she beckoned them on so they could catch their bus.

In the human experience, babies start off with all their needs being met. Eventually they learn to walk and can move about independently but their needs are still being met by their parents or guardians. As kids grow older they are socialised into the belief that food and shelter have to be paid for, and that money has to be earned.

In the Bible it is written that Jesus identifies the power working through him to perform the miracles and teach his followers as the "Father." The Father (Father-Mother) reminds me of human parents who take care of their kids. Children don't need to worry about how they will be fed and clothed. It is done for them.

The Father-Mother principle is Universal Energy that worked through Jesus. To have the experience Jesus had one needs to be aware that the Energy exists and that one's identity is Universal Energy. Jesus spoke of himself as the son and the Energy as the Father, and that he was one with the Father.

"I and my Father are one." (John 10: 30)
When children grow older their relationship with their parents change. They are given more responsibility and, as young adults, they are expected to fend for themselves. This is not the case with Universal Energy. Provided you are always aware that your identity is Universal Energy, all good is always freely available. As humans we believe we need to earn a living because we have forgotten that our real identity is Universal Energy where all needs are met.

"Divine Love always has met, and always will meet, every human need." Mary Baker Eddy
Though Jesus knew that he was the Father principle in form, he always attributed the works to the Father. He may have been aware how the works was done but he always knew it was the Father working through him.

The relationship I have with the Father-Mother principle is based on faith. I first of all have to realise that my identity is the Father-Mother principle. Then I trust, surrender and let Her do the work. With faith one can speak the word and expect instant manifestation. How this occurs is another matter. For the Father-Mother principle doesn't work in linear ways.

Yesterday I was queueing up to use the Internet at the library. While I waited, I noticed a computer that was unoccupied but had a blank screen. It had either crashed or was stuck. I thought to myself that I could very easily be on that computer by now. I considered whether I should ask a member of staff to switch it off and on. Then I remembered to deny any material cause. "There is no cause," meaning there is no reason whatsoever why that computer is not working, therefore it is in perfect working order. I turned away for a moment. When I looked back at the computer screen, I noticed it was back on-line. Guess who was allocated to that computer? Yours truly.

Do I have a clue how the Energy brought the computer back on-line? Nope. I only know that the Father-Mother principle, Universal Energy, does the work. How it does, I have no idea. I guess I'm a bit like the kids in the corner shop who don't care about how their needs are met, they just know they are.

I believe in the Father-Mother principle.

I am the Father-Mother principle.

All my love,
