The Secret of the Lord
Emma Curtis Hopkins
 
Jacqueline and I have gone through a very sad time this week as we experienced our 4-legged daughter KIWI Grace’s transition back to Spirit.  Our hearts ache with missing our beloved companion for all these years.  At the same time, we are supported by our belief, faith, and conviction of, “There is no death.”  We know she is now frolicking with all the other animals at the Rainbow Bridge, and we look forward to seeing her in Spirit.  Thank you, KIWI Grace, for teaching both of us the power of unconditional LOVE.
 
Chapter 6 is about aligning with the Power of God within us that is named “Understanding” or “Holy Spirit.”  There is so much talk in Spirituality about the “Kingdom of God” or the “Kingdom of Heaven” being within us.  ECH points out that Paul says in I Corinthians 4:20, “For the kingdom of heaven is not about talk but about Power.”
 
This begins the investigation of how we align with the Power of God which was called the “Shekinah” in the Hebrew Scriptures and “Holy Spirit” in the New Testament.  In fact, the words “Holy Spirit” appear 90 times in the New Testament.  Emma Curtis Hopkins teaches the more we recognize and acknowledge the Holy Spirit as the Power that flows through our lives, the more of the intensity of Power we will experience.  She suggests using the following affirmation every day: “Everything Good that happens to me is the demonstration of the Holy Spirit.”
 
See you Sunday!
