When you get in the habit of being still, you begin to notice just how often the Father speaks to you. I was once driving south on Interstate 287 in Edison, New Jersey, in the left-hand lane doing around 65 miles per hour when the small voice said, “Move into the center lane.” I did not respond so just a few seconds later a stone hit the windshield. I learned a very valuable lesson that day. On another occasion, the voice told me not to park my wife’s brand new BMW in front of the house. We were living in Nutley, New Jersey, and the house was on Franklin Avenue, the main road in town with no driveway, only street parking. That time, when the voice spoke, I listened. I parked the car on the side street around the corner from my home. I walked into the backyard when I heard a crash followed by three large bangs. I ran out front to find that the tailgate of a Mack dump truck fell off the passing truck and totaled three parked cars. If I had parked the car in front of my home, the tailgate would have landed on the roof of the BMW, totaling the car. So I listen.

A theme, when discerned, becomes the substance of a personal mission. A mission statement compares to the treatment of a script or brief summary of a story. For example, an acorn’s theme is growth, and its mission is to become a tree. The theme of the acorn is the method by which infinite intelligence desires to manifest in that particular material’s shape as a personality, the acorn. Infinite intelligence provides this particular personality, the acorn; with all the information it needs to become a tall oak. This characteristic of manifesting a personal theme is fundamental to all living organisms.

The famous Hermetic law of correspondence stated, “As within, so without , as above, so below.” “I am the true vine, and my Father is the gardener. He cuts off every branch in me that bears no fruit, while every branch that does bear fruit He prunes so that it will be even more fruitful. You are already clean because of the word I have spoken to you.”

John 15:1-3 (bbe)

Jesus is here referring to infinite intelligence, God as a gardener. The gardener planted the seed that grew into the vine. The gardener then nurtures and takes care of the vine and its branches so it bears plenty of fruit. This parable refers to infinite intelligence, God as the gardener that plants the seed, a theme. It then cuts off, prunes all abilities or talents that will not bear fruit, that have nothing to do with the theme. I have a powerful speaking voice, but my singing voice is terrible. A lifetime of lessons will not get me to sing great. However, understanding my theme, I know that God’s intention for me is to speak, not sing.

The soil in which infinite intelligence plants theme is in the subconscious. Subconscious then manifests this theme into a seed called DNA. DNA forms only those branches that can bear fruit; they form a physical apparatus that can support the theme. Regardless of whether an individual operates from a spiritual or material point of reference, the simple fact remains that DNA determines natural abilities and talents, which  constitute the basis of a theme. You could be an outstanding four-foot-eleven-inch basketball player, but the odds of you playing pro are slime to non. However, you might be a great jockey. God has provided each of us with a talent that will bear good fruit.
