May 27, 2018 – EVERY PART OF MY BODY IS IN HARMONY WITH THE LIVING SPIRIT WITHIN ME  

EVERY PART OF MY BODY IS IN HARMONY WITH THE LIVING SPIRIT WITHIN ME  

… I am the Lord that healeth thee.   

Exodus 15:26

Spiritual mind healing has long since passed the experimental stage.  We now know that we cannot tell where the body begins and the mind leaves off, and many of us believe that the actions, organs, and functions of the physical body really are activities of the Divine Intelligence within us.  To come to realize, then, that there is One Body, which is the Body of God, and which at the same time is our own body, is to indraw a greater spirit of Life. We should daily affirm that: Continue reading “May 27, 2018 – EVERY PART OF MY BODY IS IN HARMONY WITH THE LIVING SPIRIT WITHIN ME  “

May 26, 2018 – I LIFE UP MY CUP OF ACCEPTANCE, KNOWING THE DIVINE OUTPOURING FILLS IT TO THE BRIM

I LIFE UP MY CUP OF ACCEPTANCE, KNOWING THE DIVINE OUTPOURING FILLS IT TO THE BRIM

… God is able to make all grace abound toward you; that ye, having all sufficiency in all things, may abound to every good work. 

II Corinthians 9: 8  

We lift up our cup of acceptance to the Divine Bounty when we think affirmatively and with gratitude to the Giver of all life.  Daily we should practice affirming that our cup is filled and running over, always remembering that when we affirm for ourselves we must affirm for others.  Living and letting live, giving and receiving, loving and being loved, our cup of acceptance will be filled from the horn of God’s abundance.

May 25, 2018 – EVERY NEGATIVE THOUGHT OR CONDITION IS ERASED FROM MY EXPERIENCE AND I WALK IN THE JOY OF EVER INCREASING GOOD

EVERY NEGATIVE THOUGHT OR CONDITION IS ERASED FROM MY EXPERIENCE AND I WALK IN THE JOY OF EVER INCREASING GOOD

He shall call upon me, and I will answer him: I will be with him in trouble; I will deliver him and honor him.  With long life will I satisfy him, and shew him my salvation.

Psalm 91: 15, 16

This passage contains a great promise.  Not one of something that is to transpire in the future, but rather, a good that should be transpiring in the present moment in which we live – right now and right here.  Therefore we should accept this promise and its fulfillment.

I now accept this promise in its fullness.  I do believe that every good thing necessary to my success already belongs to the Kingdom of God, which I know is at hand.  I am expecting good to happen.  I anticipate success.  I believe that Divine Intelligence guides me into happiness and wholeness, because I know that God is happy and whole; therefore, I know that I am living right now in the spirit of wholeness and happiness.  I am looking through the eyes of happiness at the presence of wholeness, and accepting it.

I accept that God is Love, and knowing that God is in all people, I meet this Love which is everywhere.  Therefore, I love and I am loved.  Knowing that God is the great Giver, I accept His gift and do myself become a giver to life.  All I have I give, and all that God has I receive.  The Kingdom of God is at hand today.  I enter into it with joy.  This Kingdom contains all that belongs to the life of good.  It contains all people and all things.  Forever the life of this Kingdom flows through me in happiness, in peace and in love.

May 24, 2018 – TODAY I LOOSE ALL CONDEMNATION; I JUDGE NOT AND I AM JUDGED ONLY BY THE LAW OF GOD 

TODAY I LOOSE ALL CONDEMNATION; I JUDGE NOT AND I AM JUDGED ONLY BY THE LAW OF GOD   

… forgive us our debts; as we forgive our debtors.

Matthew 6:12

When Jesus said that we should not judge lest we be judged, he was stating the action of the law of cause and effect.  If we wish a complete clearance from any sense of condemnation about ourselves, we must first be certain that we have released all condemnation of others from our own minds.  When we do this we meet others in a new light and reaching back of all judgment and criticism, establish a relationship that is within us, for God is One in all people. Continue reading “May 24, 2018 – TODAY I LOOSE ALL CONDEMNATION; I JUDGE NOT AND I AM JUDGED ONLY BY THE LAW OF GOD “

May 23, 2018 – I DO EVERYTHING WITH RELIANCE ON THE LAW OF GOOD

I DO EVERYTHING WITH RELIANCE ON THE LAW OF GOOD

All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth.   

Matthew 28:18  

While Jesus said that all power was given to him in heaven and earth, at another time he said that he of himself could do nothing.  This sounds like a contradiction until we understand the subtlety of its meaning.  Jesus realized that there is but One Power and One Presence and he knew that when he surrendered himself to the Presence, that is, when he thought the thoughts of God after Him, then the Power would automatically respond to him.  Continue reading “May 23, 2018 – I DO EVERYTHING WITH RELIANCE ON THE LAW OF GOOD”

May 22, 2018 – I FREE MYSELF FROM EVERY SENSE OF CONDEMNATION, EITHER AGAINST MYSELF OR OTHERS 

I FREE MYSELF FROM EVERY SENSE OF CONDEMNATION, EITHER AGAINST MYSELF OR OTHERS 

He that saith he is in the light, and hateth his brother, is in darkness … He that loveth his brother abideth in the light …

I John 2:9, 10

When John said that it is impossible for us to remain in the light while we hate someone else, he was pointing the same truth that Jesus had in mind when he said, Forgive, and you will be forgiven.  We could not expect the law of Good to operate for us alone, shutting all others out.  It is only what we share with others that really is ours.  We are so constituted that when we think evil of others or condemn them it is impossible to escape this condemnation of ourselves.  This is why Jesus said, “Judge not that ye be not judged.”  Everything that goes out comes back again.  Our thoughts and acts move in circles.

I bless myself for the good I would do and I bless everyone for the good they would do.  I recognize the Presence of God at the center of my own being, and I know that the Divine Spirit within me responds to the same Spirit in others, comforting, unifying and making whole.  There is no criticism, no false judgment, no unkindness in me.  My whole thought and feeling is one of praise, of thanksgiving and blessing.

Today I am living as though this moment were eternity.  I am recognizing that the kingdom of Good is at hand.  Seeing the Divine in everything, I know that the Divine in all things responds to me.  Receiving the silent blessing of the Spirit, I permit this blessing to enrich the life of everyone I meet, to bring comfort, faith and good cheer to everyone I contact.  Therefore, I walk in that Light in which there is no darkness, in that Love in which there is no fear, in that life in which there is no death.

May 21, 2018 – THE SPIRIT WITHIN ME COMMUNES WITH EVERYONE AND EVERYTHING 

THE SPIRIT WITHIN ME COMMUNES WITH EVERYONE AND EVERYTHING 

… thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind … and … thy neighbor as thy self.   

Mark 12: 30, 31

When we let the love that is within us go out to the God who is in all people and the Divine Presence that is in all things, then we are loving God with all our heart and with all our soul and mind because we are recognizing that the Spirit within us is the same Spirit that we meet in others.  This is loving our neighbors as ourselves.

May 20, 2018 – TODAY I PROCLAIM MY DIVINE INHERITANCE   

TODAY I PROCLAIM MY DIVINE INHERITANCE   

Neglect not the gift that is in thee …

I Timothy 4: 14

If two persons were exactly alike, one would be unnecessary in the scheme of things.  Emerson said that imitation is suicide.  The Divine Spirit never made any two things alike – no two rose bushes, no two snowflakes, no two grains of sand, and no two persons.  We are all just a little unique so that each may wear a different face, behind which is the same, the one and the only Presence, which is God.  It is right and necessary that we should be individuals.  Unity does not mean uniformity.  Unity means that everything draws its strength, its power and its ability to live from One Source.  One Life flows through everything.  This Life is never monotonous; it is forever doing new things in you and in me.

May 19, 2018 – I SURRENDER ALL FEAR, DOUBT OR UNCERTAINTY AND ACCEPT THE GIFT OF LIFE TODAY

I SURRENDER ALL FEAR, DOUBT OR UNCERTAINTY AND ACCEPT THE GIFT OF LIFE TODAY

Fear not, little flock; for it is your Father’s good pleasure to give you the kingdom: 

Luke 12:32

We should always keep in mind that we are beneficiaries of Life.  We do not put the chicken in the egg, nor the oak tree in the acorn.  Rather, we take them out.  We did not create the Divine Presence nor the Law of Good; we commune with this Presence and use the Law.  Therefore, Jesus said that it is your Father’s good pleasure to give you the Kingdom.  It is our business to receive it.  And in doing this we follow the same method that any scientist would, for the scientist knows that he did not create the laws that he uses or the principles which he employs.

It is my Father’s good pleasure to give me the Kingdom.  Today I accept this Kingdom, which it is the pleasure of the heavenly Father to give to me, and I accept it in its fullness. Today shall contain joy and happiness; today shall be filled with peace, and through it all will be running the silent power of spiritual forces, which will harmoniously and happily govern my thoughts, decisions and acceptances so that everything I do will be done without effort.

I lay all weariness aside and accept the life-giving, invigorating, dynamic power of the Spirit, knowing that It vitalizes every organ of my body: It flows with power and strength and purpose through everything I do, even as It leads me gently down the pathway of life.  Today is the day that God has made, and I am glad in it.  And when evening comes, the cool shadows of peace shall fall across my pathway and the quiet of the night shall enter into my soul, while the beatitude of the Spirit flows through me as a river of life.

May 18, 2018 – MY MIND IS RECEPTIVE TO NEW IDEAS AND MY THOUGHT IS CENTERED ON NEW BEGINNINGS  

MY MIND IS RECEPTIVE TO NEW IDEAS AND MY THOUGHT IS CENTERED ON NEW BEGINNINGS   

For behold, I create new heavens and a new earth:  and the former shall not be remembered, nor come into mind.   

Isaiah 65:17

Nothing is ever twice alike.  It is said that the physical body is never more than a year old, that we discard many bodies through life.  Everything is continuously being re-created and it literally is true that the Divine Creative Spirit is forever making a new heaven and a new earth.  We must permit It to make a new one for us.
