Hello again, and welcome back to the blog series Mind Mastery: Science of Living Study Guide Week 13.

The Science of Living Study Guide by Rev. Ike - Reminder

The Science Of Living book serves as a comprehensive guide on HOW TO achieve your best life with practical advice on daily living, engaging visualization exercises, and affirmations designed to elevate your consciousness – tools you can immediately apply to modify your circumstances. Each week, I will give a brief lesson overview. Rev. Ike's Affirmative treatment for that lesson, practicable, actionable points for you, and some review questions as a point of reflection. Say the affirmative right out loud before you go to sleep. This will help to reinforce these positive ideas in your subconscious mind. And also end the day on a positive note. When you wake up in the morning, re-read the Affirmative treatment once again and say it out loud to start the day in a positive manner.

Lesson Overview:

Brief Summary: Chapter 13 of Rev. Ike's Science of Living Study Guide delves into the profound truth of recognizing our divine sonship. This lesson emphasizes that God's love extends to all, granting each person the divine inheritance of being a child of God (or Source/ the Universe, whatever name works for you). By understanding and embracing our divine identity, we seal our destiny and unleash our true potential.

Thank you Father, for this gift f Divie Sonship!"

Practical Actionable Points:

  2. Study of Jesus' Teachings: Study the teachings of Jesus to understand the essence of divine sonship, drawing inspiration from his example.
  3. Reflection on Personal Beliefs: Reflect on your personal beliefs about yourself and your identity. Own the awareness of how your beliefs shape your destiny, choosing to align with the truth of your divine sonship.
  4. Daily Remembrance of Divine Connection: Remind yourself daily of your divine connection to the Infinite. Own the habit of pausing to acknowledge and appreciate the presence of the divine within you, grounding yourself in the truth of your inherent worth and value.
  5. Living in Alignment with Divine Principles: Live in alignment with divine principles of love, compassion, and forgiveness. Own the commitment to embody these qualities in your thoughts, words, and actions, reflecting your divine nature.

Review Questions:

  1. How can you strengthen your affirmation of being a child of the Infinite in your daily life?
  2. What insights have you gained from studying Jesus' teachings about divine sonship?
  3. In what ways do your personal beliefs about yourself impact your destiny?

Look at yourself in the mirror and see the Presence and the Power of God in you. Declare it. And, as you go about your day, recognize the Presence of God in others. We all are sons and daughters of the Infinite, and He (She/It) resides in ALL of us. If you don't believe in God, substitute with Source/Infinite Spirit/The Universe and Consciousness.

This lesson encourages us to own the power of believing in ourselves as heirs to the divine inheritance, embodying the love, grace, and wisdom that flow from our divine connection.
