Nov. 18, 2018 – “I KNOW THAT MY REDEEMER LIVETH”

NOVEMBER 18   

“I KNOW THAT MY REDEEMER LIVETH”

Not to be separate from his primal source constitutes what we call the Heavenly man; not to be separate from the essential nature thereof constitutes what we call the Spirit-like man; not to be separate from its real truth constitutes what we call the Perfect man.

The Texts of Taoism

It has been written that Christ is the Redeemer; also that Christ is in us.  We have been told that our redemption is at hand.  We have been told to awake and that Christ will give us light.  Therefore, I conclude that my redeemer lives and is now acting through me.  Why, then, is not my redemption at hand?  It is, but I have failed to see it.  Can it be possible that I am using the Creative Power to produce the very limitation from which I so earnestly seek to extricate myself?  Undoubtedly, this is true.  There are not two powers; there is but One Power.

Today I realize that life is truly a mirror of king and slave.  Today I realize that my redemption is at hand.  The Spirit within me refreshes me daily.  I feel myself saturated with the Life Essence Itself; I feel the same Life Essence flowing in and through me.  I feel myself to be a perfect instrument in Life’s divine symphony, in tune with its harmony and perfection.  My body is an instrument in, through and upon which Life plays a divine and perfect harmony.  I am not going out in search of another power but am going to use the Power which I know already possesses eternity and is already at the center of my own life.  I know that this will heal every condition, overcome every obstacle, break down every barrier, and free me from every false condition.  My redemption is already at hand.

I look confidently into the future.  I see new friendships, new opportunities.  Everything in my experience is renewed.  Everything is made glad and happy and whole.  As I turn to the world around me, I see this same good evenly distributed everywhere, and operating through all people.

Nov. 17, 2018 – I EXPERIENCE COMPLETE WHOLENESS

I EXPERIENCE COMPLETE WHOLENESS

And that ye study to be quiet, and to do your own business, and to work with your own hands, as we commanded you; That ye may walk honestly toward them that are without, and that ye may have lack of nothing.

I Thessalonians 4: 11,12

I know that I am some part of the Divine Being, that the power and the presence of that Spirit is in the word I speak, and that word infinitely and perfectly and permanently makes whole.  I know that I represent an individualization of the Truth – the truth of Wholeness, the truth of Love, Reason and of Sound Mind; the truth of Peace and Joy; the truth and the freedom of the circulation of the Divine in every atom, in every function and every organ.

Nov. 16, 2018 – TODAY I LIVE

TODAY I LIVE

He who knows this grand completion does not seek for it; he loses nothing and abandons nothing; he does not change himself with regards to (external) things; he turns in on himself, and finds there an inexhaustible store.

The Texts of Taoism

The wisest man who ever lived told us that the knowledge of truth shall make us free.  All books of spiritual wisdom have taught us that it is not the one who makes the mistake whom we should seek to destroy; it is the mistake itself which must be erased. Continue reading “Nov. 16, 2018 – TODAY I LIVE”

Nov. 15, 2018 – I AM SPIRIT MADE MANIFEST THIS INSTANT

I AM SPIRIT MADE MANIFEST THIS INSTANT

Infinite is that, infinite is this.  From the infinite one proceeds the infinite one.  On taking the infinity of the infinite one, there is left infinity.

Brihad Aranyaka Upanishad

My body, and every part of it, is made of pure Substance – God. It cannot deteriorate.  This instant this Infinite Substance within me, that is constantly flowing through me, takes form in the likeness of perfect, whole, complete cells.  Every cell of my body is strong and healthy, filled with life and vitality, strength and cleanliness.  My body (Spirit in form) knows no time, knows no degree; it knows only to express fully, instantaneously.

Nov. 14, 2018 – TODAY I SEE HIM REFLECTED IN EVERY FORM, MOVING IN EVERY ACT

TODAY I SEE HIM REFLECTED IN EVERY FORM, MOVING IN EVERY ACT

Now, when the thought of doing good has arisen in a man’s mind, though the good be not yet done, the good Spirits are in attendance on him.

The Texts of Taoism 

After long meditation and much deep reflection, having passed through the confusion of human experience, Job finally arrived at the conclusion that the Spirit of God was within him and that the breath of God was his life.  We all have traveled this same pathway of experience, the journey of the soul to “the heights above,” and always there has been a deep inquiry in our minds – What is it all about?  Does life make sense? Continue reading “Nov. 14, 2018 – TODAY I SEE HIM REFLECTED IN EVERY FORM, MOVING IN EVERY ACT”

Nov. 13, 2018 – DAILY I DIE TO EVERYTHING THAT IS UNLIKE GOOD

DAILY I DIE TO EVERYTHING THAT IS UNLIKE GOOD

When all desires dwelling in the heart have been quitted, then the mortal becomes immortal; (then) he enjoys here Brahma.

Brihad Aranyaka Upanishad

The Talmud says that unhappy conditions arise when we mistake shadow for substance.  Even the valley of the shadow of death causes no fear when we arrive at the consciousness of the Psalmist who, from the exaltation of his Divine deliverance, proclaimed, “…thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.”  The rod and staff of Truth is the realization of the substantiality and the permanence of that which cannot change. Continue reading “Nov. 13, 2018 – DAILY I DIE TO EVERYTHING THAT IS UNLIKE GOOD”

Nov. 12, 2018 – I RECOGNIZE MY IDENTITY WITH SPIRIT

I RECOGNIZE MY IDENTITY WITH SPIRIT

Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.

Hebrews 11:1

My knowledge that the great I Am is ever available gives me an increasing capacity to draw upon It and to become inwardly aware of the presence of Spirit.  Through the quiet contemplation of the Omniaction of Spirit, I learn to look quietly and calmly upon every false condition, seeing through it to the other side of the invisible Reality which molds conditions and re-creates all of my affairs after a more nearly Divine pattern. With a penetrating spiritual vision I dissipate any obstruction, remove all obstacles, dissolve all wrong conditions.  Standing still I watch the sure salvation of the Law.

Today I see peace instead of confusion.  I entertain faith instead of doubt.  I feel the impact of an all-enveloping Presence.  I know that there is a power of good operating in human affairs.

I now claim health instead of sickness, wealth instead of poverty, happiness instead of misery.  In such degree as I gain mastery over the sense of negation, whether it be pain or poverty, I am proving the Law of Good.  Every thought of fear or limitation is removed from my consciousness.  I know that my word transmutes every energy into constructive action, producing health, harmony, happiness and success.  I know there is something at the center of my being which is absolutely certain of itself. It has complete assurance and it gives me complete assurance that all is well.  I maintain my position as a Divine Being, here and now.

Nov. 11, 2018 – THE LAW OF RIGHT ACTION IS OPERATING IN MY LIFE NOW

THE LAW OF RIGHT ACTION IS OPERATING IN MY LIFE NOW

For then shalt thou have thy delight in the Almighty, and shalt lift up thy face unto God.

Job 22:21,26

Right action means that every legitimate and constructive purpose I have in mind shall be successfully executed.  It means that I shall know what to do, how to think, how to act, how to proceed.  I definitely declare that since my word is in accord with the Divine Nature, it actually is the Law of God in my experience, enforcing Itself.

Nov. 10, 2018 – EVERY ATOM OF MY BEING IS ANIMATED BY THE DIVINE PERFECTION

EVERY ATOM OF MY BEING IS ANIMATED BY THE DIVINE PERFECTION

The Tao cannot be heard; what can be heard is not It.  The Tao cannot be seen; what can be seen is not It.

The Texts of Taoism

The Chinese tell us that Tao (meaning Spirit) produces everything, nourishes everything and maintains everything.  It spreads itself over everything.  It flows through everything and is in all things.  Indeed, being all that is, there can be nothing outside It. Continue reading “Nov. 10, 2018 – EVERY ATOM OF MY BEING IS ANIMATED BY THE DIVINE PERFECTION”

Nov. 09, 2018 – SPIRITUAL SUBSTANCE IS MY SUPPLY

SPIRITUAL SUBSTANCE IS MY SUPPLY

The Lord is on my side; I will not fear: what can man do unto me?

Psalm 188:6

I know that Spirit fills all space and animates every form, therefore, Spirit is the true actor in everything.  But I also know that Spirit can only act for me by acting through me.  This means simply that God can give me only what I take.
