Sept. 12, 2018 – I AM SPIRIT

I AM SPIRIT

He discovereth deep things out of darkness, and bringeth out to light the shadow of death.

Job 12:22

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.

Sept. 11, 2018 – I BEAR THE ETERNAL STAMP OF INDIVIDUALITY

I BEAR THE ETERNAL STAMP OF INDIVIDUALITY

It is a natural body; it is raised a spiritual body.  There is a natural body, and there is a spiritual body.

 I Corinthians 15:44, 45

 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.  Continue reading “Sept. 11, 2018 – I BEAR THE ETERNAL STAMP OF INDIVIDUALITY”

Sept. 10, 2018 – DIVINE CIRCULATION ANIMATES MY BEING

DIVINE CIRCULATION ANIMATES MY BEING

There is no end or beginning to the Tao.

Kwang – Tze

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.  Say:

I know there is one Mind, one Spirit, and one Body – the Mind, the Spirit and the Body of God – the Universal Wholeness, the ever-present Good, the all-sustaining Life.

Every organ, every function, every action and reaction of my body is in harmony with the divine creative – Spirit.

I could not ask for more; greater could not be given.

I now seek to realize the significance of this one Mind and this one Body.

I now become aware that the one Mind is acting through my body in accord with Its own divine perfection, peace and harmony.

The Divine circulates through me automatically, and freely.

Every atom of my being is animated by Its action.

At all times I have a silent, invisible Partner walking with me, talking with me, and operating through me.

I keep my mind open to Its guidance, to Its inspiration and illumination.

Sept. 09, 2018 – I EXPERIENCE ABIDING PEACE

I EXPERIENCE ABIDING PEACE

Heaven, Earth, and I were produced together, and all things and I are one.

Kwang – Tze

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.  Say:

In this peace that holds me so gently I find strength and protection from all fear or anxiety.

It is the peace of God in which I feel the love of a Holy Presence.

I am so conscious of this love, this protection, that every sense of fear slips away from me as mist fades in the morning light.

I see good in everything, God personified in all people, Life manifest in every event.

Spirit is not separate from persons or events; I see that It unites everything with Itself, vitalizing all with the energy of Its own being, creating everything through Its own divine imagination, surrounding everything with peace and quiet and calm.

I am one with this deep, abiding peace.

I know that all is well.

Sept. 08, 2018 – THE PROTECTING POWER OF THE INFINITE SUSTAINS ME

THE PROTECTING POWER OF THE INFINITE SUSTAINS ME

Now that you have purified yourselves by obeying the truth so that you have sincere love for your brothers, love one another deeply, from the heart.

I Peter 1:22

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.

Sept. 07, 2018 – THE LAW OF GOOD BRINGS ME SATISFACTION

THE LAW OF GOOD BRINGS ME SATISFACTION

Devotion is God-gnosis; and he who knoweth God, being filled with all good things, thinks godly thoughts.

Thrice-Greatest Hermes

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.  Say:

I know that freedom and joy are mine today.

This freedom and joy express themselves in my experience.

There is nothing in me that can obstruct their passage.

I permit them to flow through me in all their wonder and might.

I am conscious of an Infinite Wisdom directing me.

Whatever belongs to me will come to me.

My every thought and decision is molded by intelligence and expressed through law and order in my experience.

I not only think upon and realize the meaning of this truth; I am impelled to act upon it intelligently, creatively, without confusion, doubt, or hesitation.

With joy I enter into the fulfillment of life.

Sept. 06, 2017 – I LIVE ETERNALLY IN THE HOUSEHOLD OF GOD

I LIVE ETERNALLY IN THE HOUSEHOLD OF GOD

The perfect man, along with other men, gets his food from the earth and derives his joy from his Heaven.

Kwang – Tze

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.

Sept. 05, 2018 – I EXERCISE MY GOD-GIVEN DOMINION

I EXERCISE MY GOD-GIVEN DOMINION

They feast on the abundance of your house; you give them drink from your river of delights.

Psalm 36:8

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 “Sept. 05, 2018 – I EXERCISE MY GOD-GIVEN DOMINION”

Sept. 04, 2018 – HIS LAW IS WRITTEN IN MY HEART

HIS LAW IS WRITTEN IN MY HEART

The energy of God is Power that naught can e’er surpass, a power with which no one can make comparison of any human thing at all, or any thing divine.”

Thrice-Greatest Hermes

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 “Sept. 04, 2018 – HIS LAW IS WRITTEN IN MY HEART”

Sept. 03, 2018 – I SING LIFE’S SONG OF JOY

I SING LIFE’S SONG OF JOY

Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and supplication,  with thanksgiving let your requests be known unto God.
Philippians 4:6

You are part of the Universal Mind, one with the Universal Substance.  You live, move and have your being in pure Spirit.  All the wealth, the power and the goodness of this Spirit exist at the center of your being.  You experience this good in such degree as you accept, believe in and feel it.  As you enter into life, feeling the Divine Presence in everything, more and more you will hear a Song of Joy singing at the center of your being.  You have only to be still and listen to this Song of Life, for it is always there.  Say:

Knowing that the Loving Presence is always closer to me than my very own breath, I have nothing to fear.

I feel Its loving protection around me.

I know a Song of Joy, of Love and of Peace is forever chanting its hymn of praise and beauty at the center of my being; therefore, I tune all unhappy and negative ideas out of my mind.

I turn the dial of my thought into the sunshine of life, into brightness and laughter, into the joyous presence of radiant Spirit.

I lay aside all anxiety, all striving, and let the law of Divine Love operate through me into my affairs.

Joyfully I anticipate greater abundance, more success and a deeper peace.

Joy wells up within my mind and Life sings Its song of ecstasy in my heart.
