I AM ONE WITH ALL

Jul 23 2015Hear, 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.

I HAVE ILLUMINATION

Jul 22 2015Lift up your heads, O ye gates; and be ye lifted up, everlasting doors; and the king of glory shall come in.  Psalm 4:27

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, 2016”

I GIVE FREELY

Jul 21 2015Give, and it shall be given unto you; good measure, pressed down, and shaken together, and running over.  Luke 6:38

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.

I FORGIVE

Jul 20 2015I 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.

I HAVE TRUE UNDERSTANDING

Jul 19 2015Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom: and with all thy getting get understanding.  Proverbs 4:7

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.

I USE DIVINE LAW

Jul 18 2015Commit thy way unto the Lord; trust also in him, and he shall bring it to pass.  Psalm 37:5

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, 2016”

CHRIST IN ME

Jul 17 2015Till 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.  Ephesians 4:13

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.

I HAVE SYMPATHY

          Jul 16 2015My little children, let us not love in word, neither in tongue; but in deed and in truth.  I John 3:18

Humanity and Divinity will be identical when we recognize Divinity in humanity.  We must learn to see through the apparent, to judge not according to appearances, to realize that at the center of every man’s soul God is enthroned.  Sympathy and compassion are the ties that bind us together in mutual understanding and in the unified attempt to uncover the Divinity in each other.  Sympathy is the most gentle of all human virtues, for it is the outpouring of the Divine givingness through man.

MY OWN COMMUNION

Jul 15 2015My delight in the law of the Lord and in his law doth he meditate day and night.  Psalm 1:2

There is always a silent communion going on between the individual soul and the invisible Presence.  This communion should become a conscious union of the self with the Over-Self, of the mind with the Spirit, of the personal with the Universal.  As the artist communes with the essence of beauty and gives birth to form so our minds should commune with the Divine Presence.

I HAVE FAITH

Jul 14 2015The life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God.  Galatians 2:20

Faith is more than an objective statement.  We do not have perfect faith while any subjective contradictions deny the affirmation of our lips.  This is what the Bible means when it says we must know in our heart. Heart symbolizes the innermost center of the being.  When the intellect is no longer contradicted by our emotional reactions, by unconscious doubts and fears, then the word of our mouth will immediately bear fruit.
