In this transcript of the radio show, This Thing Called Life, from May 18, 1952, Dr. Holmes describes how we each are born onto the planet as unique expression of the One Life of God and that we have our own gifts to give to life.  Therefore, for us to seek to imitate others would be, as in the words of Ralph Waldo Emerson, “suicide”….that is not living up to the potential of who we can be.

Instead, Holmes advises us to tap into that “hidden river within each of us” that is the One Mind, the One Spirit moving through us as us and to both recognize who we really are and to live from that recognition.  As Holmes states, “Realizing that this divine center within us is love and that the same center exists in others, we shall meet people in love and with consideration and they will feel something from us.”
