My Good

We’ve been singing a song every Sunday by Karen Mitchell which was inspired by the words of the great 19th/20th Century healer Emma Curtis Hopkins. The song is called, “My Good.”

Emma wrote: “Are you not seeking Good? Why do you move your right hand? You move it to get your Good. Why do you breathe? You breathe to get your Good. Why do the stones lie still and wait? They are waiting for their Good. Why does the fly? It flies for its Good. Everything moves and waits for its Good. So you see that the Good draws everything. The Good which you and I want governs everything we do. Therefore the Good which you are seeking is your God.”

I love this idea and its deep meaning. We are all seeking our good in every moment. When we realize that our Good is our God, there is nothing lacking in our lives. We claim our Good. It is our birthright. It is our very essence. Some might misinterpret this as greed or longing. It is nothing of the sort. It is who we are and what this Power that we use is: Good another word for God.

How are we relating to this Good is the question? Do we hoard it or get frustrated when we think we do not have it? I believe that Emma is trying to tell us that we do not have to do anything, but be ourselves and live our Good. We each individually and uniquely are Good/God. Just live it.

It’s as easy as moving your right hand. It’s as easy as breathing. The stones know it. The fly flies. Everything that moves is moving for Good. Good is the drawing power. It is the Law of our being. It governs everything. It is God within us seeking expression.

Even when we are not understanding it by doing those things which are not constructive, we are still seeking it. However, it is only when we realize that we cannot keep it away and that it is backed by Love that all flows in coherence. Love is the healing Power of Good.

This is what is on my mind this morning. I invite you to just live your Good. It is here waiting with you to express itself in all that you do today. Relax, Good is your innate beingness. It’s your health, wealth, and relationships. Take it. As Emma said, “There is a Good and I ought to have it.” Have it! Give it! Be it!

Love and Aloha,

Rev. Rita
