I AM INTUITIVE
Before they call I will answer; and while they are yet speaking I will hear.
Intuition is not a product of the intellect nor is it something which developed in the process of our evolution. It is a thing itself. That which is instinct in the animal, blindly, unerringly leading it to food, water and shelter, becomes intuition in man, consciously perceived. Instinct is intuition acting unconsciously; intuition is instinct elevated to the point of self-awareness. They are identical. Intuition is Omniscience acting omnipresently; therefore, whether or not we believe it, it is ever present with us. Continue reading “July 26, 2017 – I AM INTUITIVE”
I HAVE POWER
So God created man in his own image … And God blessed them and God said unto them … replenish the earth, and subdue it; and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.
Genesis 1:27 – 28
It is because the Spirit of God is incarnated in us that we have dominion over the world of effects. This dominion is excised in such degree as we sense its true meaning. It is written that we have dominion over evil, not that we have dominion in or through evil. Spiritual dominion is exercised only as we rise above that which denies the Divine Goodness. Continue reading “July 25, 2017 – I HAVE POWER”
I HAVE COMPANIONSHIP
I am a companion of them that fear thee, and of them that keep thy precepts.
We all long for intimate relationships; we wish to feel that we are one with people. This yearning, which every normal person has, emanates from an unconscious but spiritual perception that we all are one in Life itself. Where there is no sense of rejection there will be no loneliness. Continue reading “July 24, 2017 – I HAVE COMPANIONSHIP”
I AM ONE WITH ALL
Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God is one Lord … I and the Father are one … Who hath seen me hath seen the Father.
Deuteronomy 6:4; John 10:30
Perhaps the most difficult thing for us to realize is that one Life runs through everything, one Presence manifests in everything, and one Person individualizes through everyone. But unity does not mean uniformity. We do not all have to be alike, think alike, or act alike, but the world is learning that we must all act in union. The Infinite One manifests in infinite variations, each rooted in the One but each divinely unique in its own right. Good, bad; high, low; across, above and beneath, are all one to the infinite Mind. Continue reading “July 23, 2017 – I AM ONE WITH ALL”
I HAVE ILLUMINATION
Lift up your heads, O ye gates; and be ye lifted up, everlasting doors; and the king of glory shall come in.
The gates represent the place in our consciousness where the Divine flows into the human. The light which artists painted around the saints represents the light of Heaven. Illumination or cosmic consciousness is a reality. This is what Jesus referred to when he said, “Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.” Continue reading “July 22, 2017 – I HAVE ILLUMINATION”
I GIVE FREELY
Give, and it shall be given unto you; good measure, pressed down, and shaken together, and running over.
We all wish to receive, but how many of us desire to give? If, as Jesus intimated, receiving is the other end of giving, then the more we give, the more we shall receive. ‘Who loses his life shall find it.” We should give the best we have to each other and to the world. This gift of Life, a conscious letting go of all the tight strings of our being, a loosening of the Divine gifts within us. Only when we have learned to give all shall we be in a position to receive all. Continue reading “July 21, 2017 – I GIVE FREELY”
I have blotted out, as a thick cloud, thy transgressions … For, behold, I create new heavens and a new earth; and the former shall not be remembered, nor come into mind.
Isaiah 44:22, 65:17
Whatever the mistakes of yesterday may have been, today is a new creation. Turning from the errors of the past and no longer carrying with us the sorrows and mistakes of yesterday, today we may enter into a new experience. But it is only when we forgive everyone that we may feel certain that the weight of condemnation is lifted from our own consciousness. We should refuse to carry the negations of yesterday into the positive atmosphere of today, for today the world is made new in our experience.
When we criticize another person we are apt to become involved in his psychological reactions. This does not help the person we censure but draws us into the confusion which we are observing. We must recognize that each person is a law unto himself within the Cosmic Law. Each person has the right to his own ideas and beliefs. We cannot understand a person’s actions until we know the beliefs which are motivating him. Only from the inner self can motives be explained.
Today I loose all condemnation. I judge not and I am judged only by the Law of Good. There is no animosity, no criticism, no hatred. I shall behold the face of love, of beauty and of peace in the Spirit and that there is nothing that opposes this blessing or denies this Divine givingness.

I HAVE TRUE UNDERSTANDING
Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom: and with all thy getting get understanding.
As all Scriptures tell us, true spiritual understanding comes from a perception of the Divine Unity back of all things. Knowledge is of the intellect; wisdom and understanding are of the heart. Those who have had true spiritual understanding have always taught us of the unity of good; that we are one in essence with the Spirit. They have told us that the unreal never has been; that the Real never has ceased to be. Continue reading “July 19, 2017 – I HAVE TRUE UNDERSTANDING”
I USE DIVINE LAW
Commit thy way unto the Lord; trust also in him, and he shall bring it to pass.
It is written that the Law of the Lord is perfect; therefore, when we commit our ways unto the Lord, we automatically are using this perfect law even in the most trivial things of life. To this Law there is neither great nor small. It is always responding to us by corresponding with our mental attitude toward it. Our mental attitudes can be consciously controlled; therefore we can always make conscious use of the Law of Good. Continue reading “July 18, 2017 – I USE DIVINE LAW”
CHRIST IN ME
Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ.
The Bible tells us the real man is Christ. This Christ is the perfect, invisible Presence back of, in and through every living soul. Just as there is but one God or First Cause, so there is but one Man, the manifestation of the Divine Spirit in and through all people. Throughout the ages this Christ has come with some degree of clarity to those who have meditated long and earnestly upon the nature of the Divinity that is in everything.
