DAILY I DIE TO EVERYTHING THAT IS UNLIKE GOOD
Brihad Aranyaka Upanishad
The Talmud says that unhappy conditions arise when we mistake shadow for substance. Even the valley of the shadow of death causes no fear when we arrive at the consciousness of the Psalmist who, from the exaltation of his Divine deliverance, proclaimed, “…thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.” The rod and staff of Truth is the realization of the substantiality and the permanence of that which cannot change.
I am believing that we are identifying ourselves with success and happiness. This is what we are decreeing. This is what Life is doing for us now. We know that goodness and mercy shall follow us all the days of our lives: and we will dwell in the house of the Lord forever.
We are ever renewed by the passage of the Divine Light through our consciousness. The revitalizing, regenerative power of Spirit flows from the consciousness of wholeness into our physical organism, and into every objective act when we give the realization of the Divine Presence free passage through our thought.
I know that every apparent death is a resurrection. Therefore, today, gladly I die to everything that is unlike the good. Joyfully I am resurrected into that which is beautiful, enduring and true. Silently I pass from less to more, from isolation into inclusion, from separation into oneness. The perfect Law of Good is operating through me. Joyfully I accept it. Joyfully I permit its action in everything that I do. I know that my recognize of good is the substance of the good which I recognize and I know that this good is ever taking form in my experience. It is impossible for me to be separated from my good.
