The Lord will take away from thee all sickness … I am the Lord that healeth thee.
Deuteronomy 7:15; Exodus 15:26
Health is a state of wholeness in mind and in body. The body is the servant of the mind, and the mind is the offspring of pure Spirit. Thus the Bible tells us that we are spirit, soul (or mind) and body. These three really are one, and are supposed to work in perfect unison with each other. They do this when the mind lifts its countenance to the Spirit, permitting Its flow of harmony, unity and beauty a clear passageway. The body will always reflect this inner poise.

O Lord, thou art my God; I will exalt thee, I will praise thy name; thy kingdom is an everlasting kingdom. Isaiah 25:1
Praise and thanksgiving are salutary. They not only lighten the consciousness, lifting it out of sadness and depression; they elevate consciousness to a point of acceptance. Praise and thanksgiving are really attitudes of recognition.. They are affirmations of the Divine Presence, the Divine abundance and the Divine givingness. It is only when we live affirmatively that we are happy. It is only when we recognize that the universe is built on affirmation that we can become happy. Continue reading “July 28, 2016”
Ask, and it shall be given you; seek and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you.
How can we receive what the mind refuses to entertain? Should we not, then, consciously develop the ability to receive more? We make life little and mean and limit our own possibilities when we refuse to accept the whole gift of God. We should open our consciousness to a receptivity of the Divine. There will never be any point of saturation because God is infinite. We cannot contract the Infinite, but we can expand the finite. Continue reading “July 27, 2016”
Before they call I will answer; and while they are yet speaking I will hear. Isaiah 65:24
Intuition is not a product of the intellect nor is it something which developed in the process of our evolution. It is a thing itself. That which is instinct in the animal, blindly, unerringly leading it to food, water and shelter, becomes intuition in man, consciously perceived. Instinct is intuition acting unconsciously; intuition is instinct elevated to the point of self-awareness. They are identical. Intuition is Omniscience acting omnipresently; therefore, whether or not we believe it, it is ever present with us. Continue reading “July 26, 2016”
So God created man in his own image … And God blessed them and God said unto them … replenish the earth, and subdue it; and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth. Genesis 1:27 – 28
It is because the Spirit of God is incarnated in us that we have dominion over the world of effects. This dominion is excised in such degree as we sense its true meaning. It is written that we have dominion over evil, not that we have dominion in or through evil. Spiritual dominion is exercised only as we rise above that which denies the Divine Goodness. Continue reading “July 25, 2016”
I am a companion of them that fear thee, and of them that keep thy precepts.
We all long for intimate relationships; we wish to feel that we are one with people. This yearning, which every normal person has, emanates from an unconscious but spiritual perception that we all are one in Life itself. Where there is no sense of rejection there will be no loneliness. Continue reading “July 24, 2016”
Hear, 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. Continue reading “July 23, 2016”
Lift 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”
Give, 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. Continue reading “July 21, 2016”
I 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. Continue reading “July 20, 2016”
