HEAVEN IS MY ENVIRONMENT TODAY
I exist in an eternal Beneficence which seeks to give me what I want. What others label a material experience; I behold as the heavenly possibility, and put all my efforts to its demonstration. All of God is where I am, and all of Mind is giving of Itself through me. The doors of my thinking are open wide, and right ideas in perfect order reveal themselves to me. Guided by the Divine Mind and prospered by the Divine Love, I work with certainty and with ease.
Good seeks me, and I let It happen within me. This inner compulsion to right action is welcomed by me, for I know it is Divine in source. Following the urges of the Spirit, I find good on every hand.
I start where I am and I begin with what I know myself to be. I am in an unlimited field of Mind action, which responds to me in the terms of my own thinking. I now change my concept of myself. I am not material, I am spiritual. I am not struggling for heaven; I am letting Heaven happen where I am. I am not depreciating myself; I know that I am God’s intelligent creation worthy of all the good I can conceive. All that I want to be, I can be. All that I really want to own, I can own. I look out at my world and behold a beckoning Good, and a friendly humanity. Life bids me walk forward. With my feet set on a holy pathway, I progress with ease.
My senses are alerted to the Truth. I see God wherever I look. I hear the Lord’s voice in every sound. I sense Heaven at hand and Divine Love in my heart. Joyously accepting my present day, I see the Good before me, and Love offering Itself to me. I am not led astray by false reports nor by unwise conclusions. Heaven is where I am, and I declare it. If others fail to see Good in their world, this bothers me not all at. My God and I together walk, and He leads me beside the still waters and into the green pastures. These twenty-four hours are pregnant with Spirit and vital with Truth. Each instant is crammed with the One Presence, and each hour is filled with Power.
