Sep. 23, 2017 – I SENSE THE DIVINE PRESENCE WITHIN ME

I SENSE THE DIVINE PRESENCE WITHIN ME

Conceiving nothing is impossible unto thyself, think thyself deathless and able to know all – all arts, all sciences, the way of every life.

Thrice-Greatest Hermes

The Spirit of God is an undivided and indivisible Wholeness.  It fills all time with Its presence and people space with the activity of Its thought.  Your endeavor, then, is not so much to find God as it is to realize His Presence and to understand that this Presence is always with you.  Nothing can be nearer to you that that which is the very essence of your being.  Your outward search for God culminates in the greatest of all possible discoveries – the finding of Him at the center of your own being. Life flows up from within you. Continue reading “Sep. 23, 2017 – I SENSE THE DIVINE PRESENCE WITHIN ME”

Sep. 22, 2017 – I PARTAKE OF THE DIVINE BOUNTY

I PARTAKE OF THE DIVINE BOUNTY

This is the goodness of God.  He bestoweth it on whom He will; God is of immense goodness!

The Koran

Today you are to identify yourself with the more abundant life, to think on those things which make for peace, to dwell on the unity which underlies everything.  As you poise yourself in the realization that you live in pure Spirit, new power will be born within you.  You will find yourself renewed by the Divine Life, led by Divine intelligence and guarded by Divine love.  Focus your inward vision on this indwelling harmony, knowing that as you contemplate its perfection you will see it manifest in everything you do. Continue reading “Sep. 22, 2017 – I PARTAKE OF THE DIVINE BOUNTY”

Sep. 21, 2017 – MY FAITH MAKES ME WHOLE

MY FAITH MAKES ME WHOLE

Yea, thou shalt not find any variableness in the way of God.

The Koran

Faith is a mental attitude.  A certain man came to Jesus, and, from the inspiration of his hope and the enthusiasm of the occasion, standing in the light of one whose wick of life was ever kept trimmed and burning, feeling the warmth and color of its eternal glow, exclaimed, “I believe!”  This was a simple, sincere and enthusiastic response to the consciousness of one who had faith.  But no sooner had he exclaimed, “I believe!” out of the enthusiasm of his will to believe, than old thought patterns arose to block his faith and he said, “Help thou mine unbelief.” Continue reading “Sep. 21, 2017 – MY FAITH MAKES ME WHOLE”

Sep. 20, 2017 – GUIDANCE AND WISDOM BELONG TO ME

GUIDANCE AND WISDOM BELONG TO ME

Thou hast begotten the Man in Thy self-born Mind, and in Thy Reflection and conception.  He is the man begotten of Mind, to whom Reflection gave form.

Fragments of a Faith Forgotten

Realizing that all action starts in, and is a result of, consciousness, prepare your mind to receive the best that life has to offer.  Become increasingly aware of the one Presence, the one Life and the one Spirit, which is God.  Try to drop all sense of lack or limitation from your thought.  The Spirit works for you through your belief.  All things are possible to this Spirit; therefore, everything is possible to you in such a degree as you can believe in and accept the operation of Spirit in your life.  There is something within you which is completely aware of its oneness with power, of its unity with Life.  Loose all thoughts of discord and fear, and permit the true pattern to come to the surface.  Continue reading “Sep. 20, 2017 – GUIDANCE AND WISDOM BELONG TO ME”

Sep. 19, 2017 – I CLAIM MY DIVINE INHERITANCE

I CLAIM MY DIVINE INHERITANCE

Seek for the great (mysteries) and the little shall be added unto you; seek for the heavenly and the earthy shall be added unto you.

Fragments of a Faith Forgotten

“Beloved, now are we the sons of God.”  Your kingdom of God is at hand.  The riches, power, glory and might of this kingdom are yours today.  You do not rob others by entering into the fullness of your kingdom of joy, your kingdom of abundance.  You recognize that all people belong to the same kingdom.  You are merely claiming for yourself what you would that the law of good should be unto all. Continue reading “Sep. 19, 2017 – I CLAIM MY DIVINE INHERITANCE”

Sep. 18, 2017 – MY WORD ACCOMPLISHES

MY WORD ACCOMPLISHES

So likewise thou in all thy speech Swerve never from the path of truth.

Buddhism in Translations

You are either attracting or repelling in accord with your mental attitudes.  You are either identifying yourself with lack or with abundance, with love and friendship or with indifference.  You cannot keep from attracting into your experience that which corresponds to the sum total of your states of consciousness.  This law of attraction and repulsion works automatically.  It is like the law of reflection – the reflection corresponds to the image held before a mirror.  Your life is a mirror peopled with the forms of your own acceptance. Continue reading “Sep. 18, 2017 – MY WORD ACCOMPLISHES”

Sep. 17, 2017 – MY BODY IS A TEMPLE OF SPIRIT

MY BODY IS A TEMPLE OF SPIRIT

Your body is a temple of the living Spirit.  It is spiritual substance.  Since the Spirit of God has entered into your being, your life is spiritual.  The Supreme Being, ever present, exists at the very center of your thought.  This Presence within you has the power to make all things new.

Say:

The perfect Life of God is in and through me, in every part of my being.

As the sun dissolves the mist, so my acceptance of Life dissolves all pain and discord.

I am free because the Spirit of Life in me is perfect.

It remolds and recreates my body after the likeness of the Divine pattern of body which exists in the Mind of God.

Even now the living Spirit is flowing through me.

I open wide the doorway of my consciousness to Its influx.

I permit this physical body to receive the living Spirit in every action, function, cell and organ.

I know that my whole being manifests the life, love, peace, harmony, strength and joy of the Spirit which indwells me, which is incarnated in me, which is my entire being.

I open my consciousness to the realization that all the Power and Presence there is clothes me in Its eternal embrace; that the Spirit forever imparts Its life to me.

I know that the Spirit within me is my strength and my power.

Sep. 16, 201 7 –   I AM INSPIRED FROM ON HIGH

  I AM INSPIRED FROM ON HIGH

All is the effect of all, one universal Essence.

Brihad Aranyaka Upanishad

Jesus, in utmost simplicity, proclaimed in the ecstasy of his illumination, “I and the Father are one.”  What do you suppose would happen if you believed this, not as a mere intellectual concept, but with deep inward feeling and an expanding sense of its meaning?  Would you not sell all that you possess for this single pearl of utmost worth, this drop of water taken from the ocean of being, this mountaintop of revelation?  If the wisest man who ever lived proclaimed this truth, should you not accept it, simply, directly, sincerely? Continue reading “Sep. 16, 201 7 –   I AM INSPIRED FROM ON HIGH”

Sep. 15, 2017 – I KNOW THAT MY REDEEMER LIVETH

I KNOW THAT MY REDEEMER LIVETH

Of this same Spirit, of which I have spoken many times, all things have need, for that it raises up all things, each in its own degree, and makes them live, and gives them nourishment.

Thrice-Greatest Hermes

It has been written that Christ is your redeemer, also, that Christ is in you.   You have been told that your redemption is at hand.  You have been told to awake that Christ may give you light – Christ in you, the hope of your glory.  All people are sons of God but only a few have completely recognized this.  You have decided to live as though this were true.  A deep and abiding faith has come to you.  Therefore, you are fortunate among humanity – not that God has favored you above others; rather, you have chosen this path and you are going to walk in it. Continue reading “Sep. 15, 2017 – I KNOW THAT MY REDEEMER LIVETH”

Sep. 14, 2017 – DIVINE POWER IS MINE TO USE

DIVINE POWER IS MINE TO USE

The perfect man is spirit-like. Great lakes might be boiling about him, and he would not feel their heat; the Ho and the Han might be frozen up, and he would not feel  the cold; the hurrying thunderbolts might split the mountains,  and the wind shake the ocean, without being able to make him afraid.

Kwang-Tze

Everything in nature is an individualization of one co-ordinating Life, one law of being and one Presence.  But our minds have become so filled with that which contradicts this that even the Truth has to await our recognition.  You must learn to become consciously aware of the Divine Presence and the Divine Power, the wholeness of Truth, of Love, of Reason and of a sound mind to dwell on peace and joy.  Know that the power of the invisible Spirit is working in and through you now, at this very moment.  Lay hold of this realization with complete certainty.
