I JUDGE, AND AM JUDGED, WITH THE JUSTICE OF GOD
… my judgment is just; because I seek not mine own will, but the will of the Father which hath sent me.
Jesus, the greatest of all the illumined, said, “Judge not that ye be not judged,” by which he meant that we cannot judge others harshly without receiving back into our own consciousness and experience the very things we claim for others. While Jesus was the most compassionate of all men, he was also the most just, for he knew that our lives are governed by an exact and immutable law of cause and effect.

I EXPRESS THE GLORY OF GOD
Now is the Son of man glorified, and God is glorified in him. If God be glorified in him, God shall also glorify him in himself…
Perhaps this is one of the most profound thoughts Jesus ever gave to the world, for it really tells us that when man is glorified in God, then God is glorified in man. And it means exactly this: Life is a mirror to each one of us, and as we see the glory of God in this mirror, so shall this mirror reflect back to us that same glory. For Jesus says that if God be glorified in him, God shall also glorify him in Himself. Continue reading “Mar. 12, 2018 – I EXPRESS THE GLORY OF GOD”
I AM RADIANT WITH THE HEALTH OF GOD
Then shall thy light break forth as the morning, and thine health shall spring forth speedily…
Whatever we identify ourselves with we tend to become. Whatever we think about gradually becomes a subconscious pattern, always tending to manifest itself in our experience. Therefore we should endeavor to identify our physical bodies with the spiritual Reality which is the very substance and essence of the physical being. We do not deny the physical body, but rather, affirm that every organ and action and function of the body is radiant with the perfection of God. There is an inner life of complete perfection which exists at the center of everything; otherwise, nothing could be. We should identify ourselves with this perfect pattern of our being, claiming its reality in our experience, and continuously knowing that we are animated by the Living Spirit.
Today I identify my body with the action of God, the radiant Life of the Divine Being. Today I identify my physical body with my spiritual body, claiming that they are one and the same. Therefore I see that every organ, every action and every function of my body belongs to the rhythm of Life, and is a part of the radiant Presence of the Living Spirit. There is one Divine Circulation flowing through everything – flowing through me right now. There is one infinite Rhythm at the center of everything. I am a part of this perfect Whole. There is perfect circulation, perfect assimilation and perfect elimination. There is perfection in every part of my being, and wholeness and completeness. This physical body is a temple of the Living Spirit which animates it, sustains it, rebuilds it, after the image of its own perfection, and keeps it in perfect health, in perfect harmony, in perfect wholeness.

I GIVE THANKS FOR THE BLESSINGS OF GOD
And he … took the five loaves, and two fishes, and looking up to heaven, he blessed, and brake, and gave the loaves to his disciples, and the disciples to the multitude.
Have you and I had the faith to bless that which perhaps seemed so very small – a loaf of bread and a fish – and to expect it to become multiplied in our experience to such an extent that it would not only bless us but also bless everyone around us? We cannot help but believe that as Jesus broke the bread and blessed it, in his own mind he saw it multiplied and growing and flowing out to those around him. This is an example we should follow – to bless what we have, recognizing that it flows from a limitless source; we are merely using it and distributing it. Continue reading “Mar. 10, 2018 – I GIVE THANKS FOR THE BLESSINGS OF GOD “
I WITNESS EVERYWHERE THE BEAUTY OF GOD
And let the beauty of the Lord our God be upon us…
I believe it was Plato who said that God is love, truth and beauty. It has always seemed wonderful to me that one of the world’s greatest thinkers should have included beauty as a necessary part of the Divine nature. How evident this beauty is everywhere we look! How wonderful is the landscape, the sunset or the color of the desert at dawn. How beautiful is the daffodil in its sweet simplicity. And what majestic beauty and strength in the mountain and the wave. Continue reading “Mar. 09, 2018 – I WITNESS EVERYWHERE THE BEAUTY OF GOD “
I SPEAK THE TRUTH OF GOD
He that speaketh truth sheweth forth righteousness…the lip of truth shall be established forever.
Proverbs 12; 17–19
We all wish to speak the Truth, but have we realized that every time we make a claim about ourselves that is different from the claim we would make about God, we are falling into the error of denying the Divine Presence in our experience? God is Truth and Truth is God. We also are included in this divine and perfect unity. Therefore, every claim we make about God, the Living Spirit, should equally be made about ourselves because we live and move and have our being in this infinite Truth or Presence. Continue reading “Mar. 08, 2018 – I SPEAK THE TRUTH OF GOD”
I AM RICH WITH THE RICHNESS OF GOD
…every beast of the forest is mine, and the cattle on a thousand hills…for the world is mine, and the fullness thereof.
Psalm 50:10, 12
How beautiful was the thought of Jesus when he told us to “consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they toil not, neither do they spin; And yet I say unto you, That even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these.” Jesus was telling us to identify ourselves with the abundance of nature, the constant outpouring of the divine Life in goodness, in riches, in everything that makes for happiness and wholeness and success. God cannot fail. Continue reading “Mar. 07, 2018 – I AM RICH WITH THE RICHNESS OF GOD”
I SHARE THE GIFTS OF GOD
I will give unto him that is athirst of the fountain of the water of life freely. Revelation 21:6
What a wonderful thought this is, that the very fountain of Life flows open and free; that the gifts of heaven and earth are so bountifully bestowed upon all who receive them. But there is another thought for us to consider. If God, or Life, has already made the gift, then even God, the Supreme and Perfect One, must wait our acceptance of this gift. Perhaps we err in that we do not expect to share the gifts of God. Continue reading “Mar. 05, 2018 – I SHARE THE GIFTS OF GOD”
I AM FREE WITH THE FREEDOM OF GOD
Stand fast therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ hath made us free.
We all wish to be free, but at the same time we should realize that liberty is not license. To say that we are free with the freedom of God does not mean that we are free to do that which contradicts the Divine nature. We are free only in that freedom which God is – the freedom to be alive, to enjoy living, to enter into the activities of everyday living with enthusiasm and interest. We are free to love and be loved. We are free to give full and complete expression to every capacity we possess, provided this freedom harms no one and hurts no thing. Continue reading “Mar. 04, 2018 – I AM FREE WITH THE FREEDOM OF GOD “
