THE SPIRIT GOES BEFORE ME
Good is at the root of everything, regardless of its seeming absence. But this good must be recognized. Since there is but one Spirit and this Spirit is in you and in everything, then everywhere you go you will meet this Spirit. You meet this Spirit in people, in places and in things. The one Spirit, which manifests Itself in and through all, including yourself, automatically adjusts parts to the whole. Therefore, you may accept with positive certainty that the Spirit within you does go before you and prepares your way. Your faith is placed in something positive, certain as the laws of life, exact as the principle of mathematics, ever present like the ethers of space, ever operating like the laws of nature.

I AM SPIRIT
There is a spiritual body which cannot deteriorate. This spiritual body is already within you. As much of it appears as is recognized. Spiritual perfection always responds to man’s consciousness but it can respond only in such degree as he becomes aware of it. It is because this inward perfection is so insistent that you maintain a physical body, but because you are an individual with volition, you can, as it were, hang a curtain between your physical life and its spiritual cause. Continue reading “Sep. 12, 2016 – I AM SPIRIT”
I BEAR THE ETERNAL STAMP OF INDIVIDUALITY
Life has set the stamp of individuality on your soul. You are different from any other person who has ever lived. You are an individualized center in the Consciousness of God. You are an individualized activity in the Action of God. You are you, and you are eternal. Therefore, do not wait for immortality. The resurrection of life is today. Begin to live today as though you are an immortal being and all thought of death, all fear of change will slip from you. You will step out of the tomb of uncertainty into the light of eternal day. Continue reading “Sep. 11, 2016 – I BEAR THE ETERNAL STAMP OF INDIVIDUALITY”
DIVINE CIRCULATION ANIMATES MY BEING
The Chinese sage said that Tao (meaning Spirit) “Produces everything, nourishes everything, and maintains everything.” It flows through and is in all things, being all that is. There is nothing outside it. There is a spiritual Presence pervading the universe, welling up in your consciousness, always proclaiming Itself to be the source of your being. The enlightened ones of the ages have told you that your recognition of Life is God within you recognizing Himself in everything you do. Continue reading “Sep. 10, 2016 – DIVINE CIRCULATION ANIMATES MY BEING”
I EXPERIENCE ABIDING PEACE
Peace must exist at the center of everything or the universe itself would be a chaos. You already know this and believe it, now you are going to act upon it. You are not going to believe in it, you are going to act as though it were true. There is peace at the center of your being – a peace that can be felt throughout the day and in the cool of the evening when you have turned from your labor and the first star shines in the soft light of the sky. It broods over the earth quietly, tenderly, as a mother watches over her child. Continue reading “Sep. 09, 2016 – I EXPERIENCE ABIDING PEACE”
THE PROTECTING POWER OF THE INFINITE SUSTAINS ME
As a child turns to its parents for comfort, so every man is relying on God, whether or not he realizes it. This concept is so universal that it has been present in every age, with all people, and at all times. Jesus dared to place his hand serenely in the Hand of the Invisible. His works justified his words; his faith was manifest through his acts. Continue reading “Sep. 08, 2016 – THE PROTECTING POWER OF THE INFINITE SUSTAINS ME”
THE LAW OF GOOD BRINGS ME SATISFACTION
There is a Power operating through, a Presence inspiring, an intelligence guiding, and a Law of Good sustaining you. Upon this Presence, this Power and this Law you may place complete reliance. Because you live in this Divine Presence and because It is in you, you may know that the creative Law of Good, which is infinite, and which has all power, can do for you or bring to you, anything and everything necessary to your complete happiness. Its whole desire for you is one of freedom and joy. Continue reading “Sep. 07, 2016 – THE LAW OF GOOD BRINGS ME SATISFACTION”
I LIVE ETERNALLY IN THE HOUSEHOLD OF GOD
You live in the house of God. The household of God is a household of perfection. It is “the secret place of the most High” within you and within all. The inmates of this household all are divine. They will become as divine to you as you permit. As you look at them they look at you, for this is the way of life. Everything responds to you at the level of your recognition of it.
In the household of God there is no jealousy, no littleness or meanness. It is a household of joy, a place of happiness and contentment. Here is warmth, color and beauty. Seen in this light, your earthly house symbolizes the kingdom of Divine Harmony in which no one is a stranger. Say:
Nothing is alien to me.
Nothing enters into my experience but joy, integrity and friendship.
The good I would realize for myself I realize for all others.
I cannot desire a good for myself other than the good I desire for everyone else.
Neither do I deny myself the good I affirm for others.
I know that in the household in which I live the host is God, the living Spirit Almighty; the guests are all His people; the invitation has been eternally written for all to enter and dwell therein as the guests of this Eternal Host forever.

I EXERCISE MY GOD-GIVEN DOMINION
There is a God Power at the center of every man’s being, a Presence that knows neither, lack, limitation nor fear, sickness, disquiet nor imperfection. But because everyone is an individual he can build a wall of negative thought between himself and this perfection. The wall which keeps you from the greater good is built of mental blocks, cemented together by fear and unbelief, mixed in the mortar of negative experience. Continue reading “Sep.05, 2016 – I EXERCISE MY GOD-GIVEN DOMINION”
HIS LAW IS WRITTEN IN MY HEART
Since the only life you can have is the Life of the Spirit within you, you need but permit Its radiance to flow through your thought into self-expression. You are surrounded by a dynamic force, a great surge of living power. You are immersed in and saturated with the vital essence of Life. Its presence permeates everything, binding all together in one complete whole. Continue reading “Sep. 04, 2016 – HIS LAW IS WRITTEN IN MY HEART”
