Oct. 05, 2018 – I AM IMPORTANT TO GOD AND NECESSARY TO MAN

I AM IMPORTANT TO GOD AND NECESSARY TO MAN

A man indeed ought not to cover his head, forasmuch as he is the image and glory of God. 

I Corinthians 11:7

It is easy to discredit ourselves, indulge in self-criticism, and walk through life thinking we are unimportant.  But, we forget one thing – God never makes a mistake.  Infinite Mind can only create people with a value to themselves, and to the world.  Continue reading “Oct. 05, 2018 – I AM IMPORTANT TO GOD AND NECESSARY TO MAN”

Oct. 04, 2018 –  MY MIND IS ESTABLISHED IN GOD AND ONLY GOOD IS DRAWN TO ME

 MY MIND IS ESTABLISHED IN GOD AND ONLY GOOD IS DRAWN TO ME

No man can come to me, except the Father which hath sent me draw him. 

John 6:44

We believe that life to each of us is in accordance with our states of consciousness.  Jesus is the illustration to this age that man’s inherent Divinity can be quickened into new activities of consciousness, and thus new and better conditions can follow.  He knew that his mind was the individualization of God’s Mind.  Continue reading “Oct. 04, 2018 –  MY MIND IS ESTABLISHED IN GOD AND ONLY GOOD IS DRAWN TO ME”

Oct. 03, 2018 – I DO NOT LABOR:  I WORK FOR THE GLORY OF GOD AND THE GOOD OF MY FELLOWMAN

I DO NOT LABOR:  I WORK FOR THE GLORY OF GOD AND THE GOOD OF MY FELLOWMAN

Come unto me all ye that labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.  For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light. 

Matthew 11:28, 30

Today, as metaphysicians we should be clear in our thoughts as to the difference between labor and work. The word “labor” infers drudgery, while the word “work” infers creative activity producing a just and fair profit for all concerned.  We are co-workers with God, co-workers with a Mind that knows exactly what to do and how to do it. Continue reading “Oct. 03, 2018 – I DO NOT LABOR:  I WORK FOR THE GLORY OF GOD AND THE GOOD OF MY FELLOWMAN”

Oct. 02, 2018 – I HAVE NOTHING TO FEAR, FOR GOD IS ALL THERE IS

I HAVE NOTHING TO FEAR, FOR GOD IS ALL THERE IS

Fear thou not; for I am with thee:  be not dismayed; for I am thy God: … yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness.

Isaiah 41:10

If we believe in the omnipresence of God, we can handle the age old problem of fear.  Fear is the belief that God is absent.  It is the only devil there is, and if it governs our thinking we can experience the only hell there is.  If we are overcome by it, we are headed for trouble and disease.  Both the old and the New Testaments tell us that this enemy can be overcome.  Continue reading “Oct. 02, 2018 – I HAVE NOTHING TO FEAR, FOR GOD IS ALL THERE IS”

Oct. 01, 2018 – I AM THE PERFECT CREATION OF A PERFECT GOD

I AM THE PERFECT CREATION OF A PERFECT GOD

So God created man in His own image, in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them.  Genesis 1:27

We cannot conceive of the nature of God as other than a perfect Being, whose intelligence is forever creating, re-creating and sustaining a perfect universe inhabited by a perfect man.  All the arguments devised by those who are unable to perceive this Truth become as nothing when we look at our world and see God in every flaming bush and every act of Nature. Continue reading “Oct. 01, 2018 – I AM THE PERFECT CREATION OF A PERFECT GOD”

Sept. 30, 2018 – I OVERCOME HATE BY THE RECOGNITION OF LOVE

I OVERCOME HATE BY THE RECOGNITION OF LOVE

And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.

John 1:5

There is but one Presence in the universe.  Since It is in and through everything, It must be in and through you.  This Presence manifests Itself in and through all forms, all people, and all conditions.  This Presence is Life Itself.  Its nature is love and givingness. Continue reading “Sept. 30, 2018 – I OVERCOME HATE BY THE RECOGNITION OF LOVE”

Sept. 29, 2018 – THE HEALING CHRIST ABIDES WITH ME

THE HEALING CHRIST ABIDES WITH ME

 Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.

Galatians 6:7

 You have heard about the healing Christ who can come to you with power.  Do you realize that this Christ is already here?  This Christ is the incarnation of God in every individual.  There is not a person who lives that does not at some time in his life sense this inward Presence, this vision of the Divine which presses against us.  It is seeking entrance through our thoughts.  We must open the door of our consciousness and permit It to enter.  It is willingness, acceptance and recognition that give entrance to the Divine Presence.  It is faith and acknowledgment that permits Its creative power to flow through our word.

Say:

Today I am opening my consciousness to a realization of the living Christ, the eternal Sonship of the everlasting Father.

I know that He dwells in me; I know that there is an invisible Guide, a living Presence with me at all times.

With complete simplicity and directness, I recognize my Divine center.

Consciously, I unify myself with this pure Spirit in which I live, move and have my being.

I am strong with the strength of the all-vitalizing power of pure Spirit.

I am sustained by Divine Energy which flows through me as radiant health and vitality.

Every atom of my being responds to this Divine Presence.

I completely surrender myself to It.

Sept. 28, 2018 – I RECEIVE BECAUSE I ASK IN FAITH

I RECEIVE BECAUSE I ASK IN FAITH

But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, long-suffering, gentleness, goodness, faith…

Galatians 5:22

 “Ask and ye shall receive.”  This is one of the most wonderful statements ever uttered.  It implies that there is a Power which can and will honor your request.  But it is only as you let go of the lesser that you can take hold of the greater, only as you drop confusion that you can entertain peace, only as you transcend doubt and fear that you can be lifted up to the hilltops of the inner Life.  Continue reading “Sept. 28, 2018 – I RECEIVE BECAUSE I ASK IN FAITH”

Sept. 27, 2018 – I AM BOUNTIFULLY SUPPLIED FROM DIVINE SUBSTANCE

I AM BOUNTIFULLY SUPPLIED FROM DIVINE SUBSTANCE

For the Lord taketh pleasure in his people: he will beautify the meek with salvation.

Psalm 149:4

Life fills all space and Spirit animates every form.  But since you are an individual, even the Spirit cannot make the gift of Life unless you accept it.  Life may have given everything to you but only that which you accept is yours to use.

Turning from every objective fact to the Divine, which is within you, is turning from conditions to causes, to that realm of Absolute Being which, through self-knowingness, creates the forms which It projects and enters into the experience which It creates.  Thus the Spirit comes to self-fulfillment in everything. Through the manifestation of the power that is within you, you can project any objective experience which you may legitimately desire.  Be certain that you are accepting this, that you are living in joyous expectation of good, that you are accepting the abundance.

Say:

Today I recognize the abundance of life.

I animate everything in my experience with this idea.

I remember only the good.

I expect only the good.

This is all I experience.

I give thanks that this good is flowing in ever-increasing volume.

I do not withhold this good from others but proclaim that spiritual substance is flowing to each and all as daily supply.

Sept. 26, 2018 – SPIRIT PERMEATES MY CONSCIOUSNESS AND ENVIRONMENT

SPIRIT PERMEATES MY CONSCIOUSNESS AND ENVIRONMENT

 For all the law is fulfilled in one word, even in this: Thou shall love thy neighbor as thyself.

Galatians 5:14

It is only as you live affirmatively that you can be happy.  Knowing that there is but one Spirit in which everyone lives, moves and has his being, you are to feel this Spirit not only in your consciousness but in your affairs.  You are united with all.  You are one with the eternal Light Itself.  The Presence of Spirit within you blesses everyone you meet, tends to heal everything you touch, and brings gladness into the life of everyone you contact.  Therefore, you are a blessing to yourself, to humanity and to the day in which you live.  Say:

Today I uncover the perfection within me.

In its fullness I reveal the indwelling Kingdom.

I look out upon the world of my affairs, knowing that the Spirit within me makes my way both immediate and easy.

I know there is nothing in me that could obstruct or withhold the divine circuit of Life and Love which Good is.

My word dissolves every negative thought or impulse that could throw a shadow over my perfection.

Good flows through me to all.

Good shines through my thoughts and actions.

Good harmonizes my mind so that love sings joyously in manifesting perfection in every cell, organ and function.

Good harmonizes my mind so that Love sings joyously in my heart.

I am in complete unity with Good.
