Seat of the Soul

Seat of the Soul

Reverend Dr. Raymont Anderson

There is an inner divine urge, a purposefulness of Spirit, that resides within each of us at all times. One might call it our soul. Our soul has the ability to know what it wishes to express and the power to express it. As we ground ourselves in the awareness of our unity with Spirit and recognize the limitless Power within, our soul awakens to its full potentiality and becomes an outward reflection of Spirit, God, Life Itself.


To understand our unity with God is the beginning of wisdom. To realize that we can express our Divinity today should be the start of a conscious practice that will gradually conduct us to a greater and greater experience of life. Thus, we will demonstrate not only that an infinite Good exists, but that it is now operating in our experience. This is the purpose of the practice of the Science of Mind. Our consciousness of the indwelling Spirit and the embodiment of Its gifts brings us into the dominion of Good. (365 Science of Mind, 2001 edition, p. 93.2)

It is this power of the human soul to differentiate limitlessly from the Infinite that we are apt to overlook, but as we come to realize that the soul is itself a reflection and image of the Infinite Spirit – and a clear recognition of the cosmic creative process shows that it cannot be anything else – we find that it must possess this power and that in fact, it is our possession of this power which is the whole raison d’etre of the creative process; if the human soul did not possess unlimited power of differentiation from the Infinite, then the Infinite would not be reflected in it, and consequently, the Infinite Spirit would find no outlet for its conscious recognition of itself as the Life, Love, and beauty which it is. Thomas Troward, The Dore Lectures, p. 187

We live in succession, in division, in parts, in particles. Meantime within man is the soul of the whole; the wise silence; the universal beauty, to which every part and particle is equally related; the eternal ONE. And this deep power in which we exist and whose beatitude is all accessible to us is not only self-sufficing and perfect in every hour, but the act of seeing and the thing seen, the seer and the spectacle, the subject, and the object, are one. Ralph Waldo Emerson, Emerson’s Essays, “The Over-Soul,” p. 189


Take time each day to be still and know. Know your unity with God, Spirit, Life Itself. Know the unique fingerprint of your own soul is the Power and Presence of Life Itself and it knows the way to unfold your highest Good.


“I am grounded in the Power and Presence of Life Itself, the Over-soul, and it is from that place from which I move.”
