Love is the pure essence of Being that binds together the whole human family. It is an inner quality that sees good everywhere and in everybody. It insists that all is good, and by refusing to see anything but good it causes that quality to finally appear uppermost in itself, and in all things (p. 61, 63).

Oct. 22, 2017 – WITHIN ME THE SPIRIT IS ALIVE AND VITAL

WITHIN ME THE SPIRIT IS ALIVE AND VITAL

Thou gavest also thy good Spirit to instruct them, and withheldest not thy manna from their mouth, and gavest them water for their thirst. 

Nehemiah 9:20   

This is a universe of activity and vitality, and if we would live in it effectually, we must be actively and vitally alive.  The Mind that created and sustained the universe must have as its essential nature vitality and activity.  We are Sons of God, the expressions of the Creative Mind, and our inheritance is the capacity to express life with a punch, a zest and a joy.  To do this we must be aware of our inner Divine Potential and through co-operation with it, let it act through us.  Thus, we pray and treat to know that God is the energy, vitality and essence of our lives.  From a center within ourselves there springs forth all that we need to live in creative ways and be a blessing to the world.  The followers of Jesus were given by him a strong message to be vital and definite partners with life.  Christianity must develop a mass of right-thinking people who demonstrate this energy of Spirit in creative ways.

Within me is a part of God, it is my own true self.  This inner spirit releases through me the energy, vitality and joy of the Lord.  My whole body is now filled with God’s vitality.  I am not fatigued this day, for God’s energy, working in every cell of my body, renews and maintains me in complete perfection.  I am alive and vital for God’s Ideas fill my consciousness.  New creative channels open for me this day in my business and family life.  I look forward to new ways of service, new ways of expressing love.  I dedicate all that I am to being vitally alive with the life of God.  I shall be a blessing to all who contact me this day.

Oct. 22, 2017 – FREELY AND JOYOUSLY I LET RIGHT ACTION TAKE PLACE IN MY LIFE

FREELY AND JOYOUSLY I LET RIGHT ACTION TAKE PLACE IN MY LIFE

Now the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing that ye may abound in hope, through the power of the Holy Spirit. 

Romans 15:13

The Law of Life is a law of co-operation with all that is fine and true. Believing that Life is God in action, we must accept its processes with a firm conviction that in the long run all things will work together for good.  Resistance brings contraction; co-operation brings expansion.  God’s mind is already in perfect action.

Oct. 21, 2017 – DIVINE PROSPERITY IS WORKING IN ALL MY AFFAIRS

DIVINE PROSPERITY IS WORKING IN ALL MY AFFAIRS

If they obey and serve him, they shall spend their days in prosperity, and their years in pleasure. 

Job 36:11

Prosperity is the result of a mental atmosphere of faith and order induced within us through right thinking.  We should believe that the universe is planned for abundance, and that we as a living part of the Universal Intelligence have a share in the general riches.  Lack of supply to meet our needs is an indication of lack of spiritual development.  The more we understand ourselves as spiritual beings living in a spiritual universe the more that supply flows to us easily and naturally.  The disciplined mind can demonstrate prosperity, for it has provided the orderly channels necessary for it.  A disorderly mind usually has financial troubles as a result of its scattered thinking. We know that man’s mind is God’s mind in action, and we know that the Divine Mind is always orderly in its processes.  Jesus stated that as “first the blade, and then the ear, and then the full corn on the ear.” He knew that we have to provide a mental atmosphere of order and harmony in which the living ideas can grow.

I live in a world that is filled with God’s abundance, and I now claim this as my  own.  The riches of the universe are open to me, and I partake of them in wisdom and joy.  All my affairs are under the law of prosperity.  Increased good flows to me from all directions and through all people.  There is no lack in my consciousness, for God’s ideas fill my thought and all is richness and opulence.  I am orderly in all my ways.  I am loving, kind and gracious.  I speak this day in terms of abundance.  I expect increased prosperity to take place in my world, for I know that God’s activity is alive in my affairs.  I now give thanks that the riches of God are mine to use and to enjoy in right ways.

Oct. 20, 2017 – THIS IS A HAPPY WORLD AND I AM JOYOUS IN IT

THIS IS A HAPPY WORLD AND I AM JOYOUS IN IT

A merry heart doeth good like a medicine; but a broken spirit drieth the bones. 

Proverbs 17: 22

It is sometimes difficult for people to believe that God want us to be happy.  We have been taught that to be spiritually minded usually meant to be burden-minded.  This incorrect idea is fast disappearing, for which we can give thanks.  There is no reason why any of us who will live rightly and love greatly cannot be happy right here.  The Mind which created us gave us the ability to laugh and smile. Continue reading “Oct. 20, 2017 – THIS IS A HAPPY WORLD AND I AM JOYOUS IN IT”

Oct. 19, 2017 – I AM FREE TO EXPRESS ALL THAT GOD IS

I AM FREE TO EXPRESS ALL THAT GOD IS

 

Ho, every one that thirsteth, come ye to the waters, and he that hath no money: come ye, buy and eat: yea come, buy wine and milk without money and without price. 

Isaiah 55:1

In the realm of Mind there are no Limitations save those which are self-imposed.  In our everyday living we seem bound by time, space and money.  Often our health limits our living freely, or our hurts and pride keep us from pleasant experiences.  Isaiah, like other Biblical Teachers, reveals to us the freedom of the Spirit.  He tells us that there is a way of living mentally where we are unbound, unfettered, and free.  This is the same teaching which Jesus gave us in his concept of the Kingdom of heaven as being possible here on earth for those who will think rightly and aspire greatly.  Freedom begins and ends in our consciousness.  As we turn in thought to the unlimited possibilities of what we are in God, we begin to be free from the limitations of matter and material laws.  This must be done mentally, and we who love God do it and prove that freedom is a reality.

I have faith that I am a citizen of the Kingdom of God on earth.  This Kingdom is one of perfect Mind, and all Its perfect Ideas now function in me, delivering me to greater good and greater service to my fellowman.  I am free to select the good, the right and the true, and I do this joyously for my own Christ Self urges me now to do just that.  There is nothing to bind me, limit me or make me afraid.  God is the only real Presence and the only real Power, and I am the living representative of God.  I freely express all that God is, and I love to do it.  I am free, praise God, I am free.  I know the Truth, and I have been set free to live wisely, lovingly and justly.

Oct. 18, 2017 – THE GOD IN ME LOVES THE GOD IN MY FELLOWMAN

THE GOD IN ME LOVES THE GOD IN MY FELLOWMAN

 

Let us love one another: for love is of God: and every one that loveth is born of god, and knoweth God. 

I John 4:7

 

The word “love” when used to describe the nature of God can be easily understood by everyone, for we are always responsive to love.  Rich or poor, religious or nonreligious, we know the word and feel an expansion within us when it is used.  Believing that God acts through man, then love must act through man. Continue reading “Oct. 18, 2017 – THE GOD IN ME LOVES THE GOD IN MY FELLOWMAN”

Oct. 17, 2017 – I HAVE NO ENEMIES, I HAVE ONLY SONS OF GOD EXPRESSING LOVE TOWARD ME

I HAVE NO ENEMIES, I HAVE ONLY SONS OF GOD EXPRESSING LOVE TOWARD ME

See that none render evil unto any man:  but ever follow that which is good, both among yourselves, and to all men. 

I Thessalonians 5:15

Disagreeable people are a problem to all of us, and it is a problem that has to be met.  It is easy to go through life feeling that we are the victims of other people’s thought and action.  We all have an adequate vocabulary to describe just how vicious and mean the other fellow is. One of the essential teachings of Jesus was a spiritual way of handling our fellowman. Continue reading “Oct. 17, 2017 – I HAVE NO ENEMIES, I HAVE ONLY SONS OF GOD EXPRESSING LOVE TOWARD ME”

Oct. 16, 2017 – I REFUSE TO WORRY, I TRUST GOD AND MAN

I REFUSE TO WORRY, I TRUST GOD AND MAN

 Take therefore no thought for the morrow: the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself.

Matthew 6: 34

The most insidious thing which the student of Truth must handle is worry.  We do not consciously set aside times for worry, as we do for right thinking, and often we are startled to find that we have been wasting an hour fussing over some problem or fear.  We immediately say “But, I know better than to do that,” and we start making positive statements of Truth.  This is what Jesus meant when he said “Watch and pray, that ye enter not into temptation.” Continue reading “Oct. 16, 2017 – I REFUSE TO WORRY, I TRUST GOD AND MAN”

Oct. 15, 2017 – GOD AROUND ME, GOD WITHIN ME, ALL IS WELL

GOD AROUND ME, GOD WITHIN ME, ALL IS WELL

 

One Lord, one faith, one baptism, One God and Father of all, who is above all and through all and in you all. 

Ephesians 4: 5,6

 

We live in the midst of an unlimited Presence, forever in action as unlimited Mind.  It created us, and it sustains us. It operates through us.  All it asks of us is our recognition of It.  As we affirm the Presence and Power of God in our lives, something happens within us to improve us.  This can be tested by anyone who wishes to see what will happen when God works in his experience. Continue reading “Oct. 15, 2017 – GOD AROUND ME, GOD WITHIN ME, ALL IS WELL”

Oct 14, 2017 – GOD IS MY EMPLOYER: MY WORK IS EFFICIENT, CREATIVE AND RIGHT

GOD IS MY EMPLOYER: MY WORK IS EFFICIENT, CREATIVE AND RIGHT

 

For we are laborers together with God: ye are God’s husbandry, ye are God’s building. 

I Corinthians 3: 9

 

Living in a universe of activity we are expected to be efficient and creative.  Our work, whether in office, factory or home is that part of the universal activity which we have selected to do. Therefore, we should do it with ease, with efficiency and with pleasure.  We confuse issues and think we are earning money, instead of seeing our true position as a center through which the universal activity of mind focalizes itself by means of us. Continue reading “Oct 14, 2017 – GOD IS MY EMPLOYER: MY WORK IS EFFICIENT, CREATIVE AND RIGHT”
