THERE ISN’T GOD AND MAN; THERE IS ONLY GOD AS MAN; AND I AM THAN MAN NOW
I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvelous are thy works: and that my soul knoweth right well. How precious also are thy thoughts unto me. O God! How great is the sum of them. Psalms 139 – 14, 17
We believe in the divinity of man. We believe that man is the individualization of all that God is. Infinite Mind is forever thinking by means of its beloved creation – man. Each of us stands in the midst of an omnipresent Intelligence, which seeks to express through us, and as we recognize (re-cognize, to know again) this relationship we become valuable instruments for good. Man is God in action, and we must know this, believe this and act from this premise. Then, we never plead with God to do something for us; rather, we rise in the integrity of our own being, and thinking rightly move into action to produce the good we need. As we perceive this eternal process of our inner self as God thinking through us, we become conscious of great possibilities – and become co-creators with the Almighty of a good world, filled with good people living in justice, peace and love.
All that God is, is now in action through me. Infinite Spirit fills me, Infinite Love surrounds me, Infinite Mind directs me. There is no fear in my thought, for God’s thoughts are now my thoughts, and they are perfect. The law of Mind produces my word into form right now. I declare that I am a prefect expression of God, and only God’s thoughts function in me this day. No evil can come nigh me, for God is all there is in my world. All is good for all is Love. The peace that passeth all understanding is my peace now. I rejoice in my Divinity and dedicate myself to its full expression in this hour.
