When all desires dwelling in the heart have been quitted, then the mortal becomes immortal; (then) he enjoys here Brahma.
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.

Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.
My knowledge that the great I Am is ever available gives me an increasing capacity to draw upon It and to become inwardly aware of the presence of Spirit. Through the quiet contemplation of the Omniaction of Spirit, I learn to look quietly and calmly upon every false condition, seeing through it to the other side of the invisible Reality which molds conditions and re-creates all of my affairs after a more nearly Divine pattern. Continue reading “Nov. 12, 2017 – I RECOGNIZE MY IDENTITY WITH SPIRIT”
THE LAW OF RIGHT ACTION IS OPERATING IN MY LIFE NOW
For then shalt thou have thy delight in the Almighty, and shalt lift up thy face unto God.
Right action means that every legitimate and constructive purpose I have in mind shall be successfully executed. It means that I shall know what to do, how to think, how to act, how to proceed. I definitely declare that since my word is in accord with the Divine Nature, it actually is the Law of God in my experience, enforcing Itself. Hence, there is nothing in me or around me which can limit this word. The power of this Law is with me and the action which results from this power produces harmony, peace, joy and success.

EVERY ATOM OF MY BEING IS ANIMATED BY THE DIVINE PERFECTION
The Tao cannot be heard; what can be heard is not It. The Tao cannot be seen; what can be seen is not It.
The Texts of Taoism
The Chinese tell us that Tao (meaning Spirit) produces everything, nourishes everything and maintains everything. It spreads itself over everything. It flows through everything and is in all things. Indeed, being all that is, there can be nothing outside It. There is a mystical Presence which pervades the Universe, and this Presence, welling up in our consciousness, evermore proclaims Itself as the source and root of all. Continue reading “Nov. 10, 2017 – EVERY ATOM OF MY BEING IS ANIMATED BY THE DIVINE PERFECTION”
The Lord is on my side; I will not fear: what can man do unto me?
I know that Spirit fills all space and animates every form, therefore, Spirit is the true actor in everything. But I also know that Spirit can only act for me by acting through me. This means simply that God can give me only what I take. I am conscious that as I daily enter into my Divine inheritance, in my thought and in the Spirit, I am entering into the realm of Absolute Causation and I completely believe that from this secret place of the Most High within me, there shall be projected an objective manifestation of my every legitimate desire. Continue reading “Nov. 09, 2017 – SPIRITUAL SUBSTANCE IS MY SUPPLY”
And as He thinketh all things manifest, He manifests through all things and in all, and most of all in whatsoever things He wills to manifest.
All laws are laws of God. Whatever Reality is, Its nature is One. If I wish to demonstrate my good I must faithfully and fervently declare that the Law of the Lord is perfect and that this Law is operating in my experience now. I believe that it is the nature of thought to externalize itself, to bring about conditions which exactly correspond to the thought. Therefore, I turn resolutely from every sense of lack, want and limitation, and declare the perfect Law, knowing that even though I am dealing with an invisible Principle it will be made manifest in my experience. Continue reading “Nov. 08, 2017 – I DEMONSTRATE THROUGH THE PERFECT LAW”
Each day this week, spend at least 15 minutes in the morning and 15 minutes in the evening concentrating on Power. Starting with the level of “control,” use these positive, powerful affirmative thoughts to climb the ladder. Speak the words out loud, feeling the vibration of the words through the power center in your throat. With your inner vision, hold the picture of the radiant Christ light flowing from the top of your head through the faith center to be released as spiritual power from the larynx at the root of the tongue.

The Tao Te Ching
I know that the Power of Good is an underlying principle of the universe and that it is a manifestation of God. I know that God is All-Good. I know that Good underlies all manifestations of thought and form because Good is harmony, complete balance. Good is at the root of all manifestation, regardless of its seeming absence. I know that this good is the basic principle of my existence; that which I Am is Good. It is the vital, living Force that supports my every thought and deed when they are in harmony with It.

At the center of my being is peace – the peace that is felt in the coolness of evening, when men have turned from their labor and the first star shines in the soft light of the sky. There is a freshness, a vitality, a power underlying this Peace. It broods over the earth quietly, tenderly, as a mother watches over her sleeping babe. Continue reading “Nov. 06, 2017 – AT THE CENTER OF MY BEING IS PEACE”
Be perfect, be of good comfort, be of one mind, live in peace; and the God of love and peace shall be with you.
II Corinthians 13:11
I drop all sense of lack or limitation from my thought and every belief which I have ever had in lack or fear. I now have a belief in success and faith. I permit the Spirit within me to express Itself in perfect freedom, bringing increasing joy into my experience. There is that within me which is completely conscious of its unity with Good, of its oneness with all the Power there is and all the Presence there is and all the Life there is. Upon this Power, Presence and Life, I depend with implicit certainty, with complete confidence and with absolute assurance.
