May 11, 2018 – I CLEANSE THE WINDOW OF MY MIND THAT IT MAY BECOME A MIRROR REFLECTING INSPIRATION FROM THE MOST HIGH   

I CLEANSE THE WINDOW OF MY MIND THAT IT MAY BECOME A MIRROR REFLECTING INSPIRATION FROM THE MOST HIGH   

… and prove me now herewith, saith the Lord of hosts, if I will not open you the windows of heaven, and pour you out a blessing, that there shall not be room enough to receive it.

Malachi 3:10

We should believe that God is the invisible Partner in our lives and affirm that Divine Love goes before us and prepares the way.  We should permit ourselves to be guided for there is something within us, deep at the center of our being, which knows what we ought to do and how we ought to do it.

May 10, 2018 – GOOD IS FOREVER EXPRESSING ITSELF TO ME AS I SEEK AND FIND THE BEST IN LIFE

GOOD IS FOREVER EXPRESSING ITSELF TO ME AS I SEEK AND FIND THE BEST IN LIFE   

… thou art ever with me; and all that I have is thine.   

 Luke 15:18

Realizing that we are in the midst of an ever-present Good, and believing that there is a Law that brings everything good into our lives, we should learn to think and act as though every wrong condition of yesterday were converted into something new and better today.

May 09, 2018 – TODAY I AM FILLED WITH CONFIDENCE AND A SENSE OF SECURITY BECAUSE I AM ACTIVELY AWARE OF THE PRESENCE OF SPIRIT WITHIN ME  

TODAY I AM FILLED WITH CONFIDENCE AND A SENSE OF SECURITY BECAUSE I AM ACTIVELY AWARE OF THE PRESENCE OF SPIRIT WITHIN ME   

For he shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways.   

Psalm 91:11

Deep within each of us there is a place of calm, of peace and security, where trouble and accident do not occur, where Truth and Love reign supreme and good is the only power.  It is to this place that daily we go in the silence of our own minds to commune with the Spirit that is both around us and within us.  Truly this is our Father within, our heaven immediately available and always responsive to our approach.  In our meditation we seek to make the presence of this Spirit more real to us, more immediate and more personal.  And as we do this an inward sense of calm comes over the mind, a feeling of security and safety which every human being needs.

May 08, 2018 – A GREAT PEACE OF MIND, A DEEP SENSE OF BELONGING, A COMPLETE REALIZATION THAT GOD IS RIGHT WHERE I AM, FILLS MY MIND TODAY

A GREAT PEACE OF MIND, A DEEP SENSE OF BELONGING, A COMPLETE REALIZATION THAT GOD IS RIGHT WHERE I AM, FILLS MY MIND TODAY

Her ways are ways of pleasantness, and all her paths are peace.   

Proverbs 3:17

When we meditate on spiritual thoughts we are affirming the Presence of God in, around and through us. It is this close and immediate feeling of the Divine Presence, actively stated, that gives power to our words.  The words of themselves would have no power without this deep feeling back of them.  It is because we do believe in a Power greater that we are that we can have this feeling, this inner conviction, this sense of certainty which all spiritual teachers have told us is necessary to effective prayer.

May 07, 2018 – TODAY I FEEL THE CERTAINTY OF FAITH COMING INTO ACTION IN EVERYTHING I DO, SAY OR THINK  

TODAY I FEEL THE CERTAINTY OF FAITH COMING INTO ACTION IN EVERYTHING I DO, SAY OR THINK   

Thou shalt also decree a thing, and it shall be established unto thee …   

Job 22:28  

Faith acts like a law because it is a law.  It is the law of spiritual Mind in action.  When we realize this we no longer feel that we must have faith in ourselves, as isolated human beings, but rather, as human beings included in the great Law of life.  Then we can rest in complete confidence that our words are the presence and the power and the activity of the Spirit in us.  All sense of making things happen, holding thoughts or concentration of the mind are put aside, and with quiet, childlike acceptance we make known our requests with thanksgiving. Continue reading “May 07, 2018 – TODAY I FEEL THE CERTAINTY OF FAITH COMING INTO ACTION IN EVERYTHING I DO, SAY OR THINK  “

May 06, 2018 – I AM AWARE THAT GOD RECOGNIZES ME AS THE DIVINE PERSON HE INTENDED ME TO BE AND I ACCEPT MY INHERITANCE OF WHOLENESS TODAY 

I AM AWARE THAT GOD RECOGNIZES ME AS THE DIVINE PERSON HE INTENDED ME TO BE AND I ACCEPT MY INHERITANCE OF WHOLENESS TODAY 

Ye shall have a song, as in the night … and gladness of heart, as when one goeth with a pipe … into the mountain of the Lord …   

Isaiah 30:29

Let us see if we cannot take the pipe of faith and go into the mountain of the Lord, which is the secret place of the Most High within us, and let the whole pipeline of our lives flow from that perfect Spirit which is at the center of everything.

I am one with the infinite and perfect Spirit, the Giver of all good and perfect gifts.  I open my mind and my heart, and, indeed, my whole body, to the inflow of this Divine Presence.  I know that this living Presence is in every cell of my body and every function of my being.  I now accept this Divine Presence as the health of my body, here and now.

May 05, 2018 – I AM AT HOME IN THE UNIVERSE WHEREVER I MAY BE, ONE WITH GOD, ONE WITH PEOPLE, ONE WITH THAT ABIDING FAITH THAT KNOWS NO FEAR 

I AM AT HOME IN THE UNIVERSE WHEREVER I MAY BE, ONE WITH GOD, ONE WITH PEOPLE, ONE WITH THAT ABIDING FAITH THAT KNOWS NO FEAR 

And all things that are mine are thine, and thine are mine, and I am glorified in them.   

 John 17:10 (E.R.V)

This meditation is an all-inclusive prayer because it includes ourselves and others.  It is truly doing unto others what we would they should do unto us and establishes a unity between ourselves and those around us, a feeling that we all are some part of the Kingdom of Good.  This all-inclusive prayer, then, is one which expands our consciousness of the True Self and at the same times blesses those around us.

Believing that there is a Divine Presence closer to me than my very breath, and realizing that I live in the one perfect Spirit, and knowing that the God around and the God within me is one God, I say: My Father, which art in heaven within me, hallowed be Thy name.  Thy Kingdom is come now, and I accept it.  Looking about me, I say to all people: Your Father, which is in your heaven within you, hallowed be His name, for you are one with Him forever more.  There is one Life, that Life is God, that Life is your life now – and that Life is perfect.

Looking upon the circumstances which surround me, I bless them even as Jesus blessed the bread and broke it, and even as the loaves and fishes multiplied in the outstretched and upturned hand of his love, so I know that everything in my experience that is good is multiplied and increased.  Even as I feel the increase pressing into my own experience, I give it out, with no thought of return that it may feed and bless and multiply the good of others, these others who are some part of me because God is in them and in me, and we are in each other.

May 04, 2018 – TODAY, AS A CHILD, I ENTER INTO THE GLADNESS OF LIVING, TRUSTING IN THE ETERNAL GOODNESS

TODAY, AS A CHILD, I ENTER INTO THE GLADNESS OF LIVING, TRUSTING IN THE ETERNAL GOODNESS

Give, and it shall be given unto you; good measure, pressed down… and running over, shall men give into your bosom…   

Luke 6:38

Who would not be as a child again?  Who would not again have the simple faith and childlike trust that somehow or other we seem to lose on the pathway of human experience?  Things crowd in upon us until we lose one of the greatest of all gifts – the simple, spontaneous joy of living and a trust in the power of Good which alone is able, ready and willing to meet all our needs.  Let us, then, again return to the place of assurance that comes with the simplicity of faith.

May 03, 2018 – TODAY I SEEK AND FIND NEW OPPORTUNITIES FOR SELF-EXPRESSION THROUGH MY FAITH IN THE POWER OF GOD  

TODAY I SEEK AND FIND NEW OPPORTUNITIES FOR SELF-EXPRESSION THROUGH MY FAITH IN THE POWER OF GOD  

…the darkness hideth not from thee… the darkness and the light are both alike to thee.   

Psalm 139:12

To be effective, prayer must be affirmative, but it is not enough merely to affirm the presence of God.  We must add to this realization the thought that Divine Intelligence is acting in and through us now.  Prayer is not a wishful or wistful wishing, nor is it an escape from objective reality.  To be lost merely in our prayers might terminate in an unconscious desire to escape the activities of life.  Therefore we affirm that Divine Intelligence not only knows what to do, it impels us to act on Its knowing.

May 02, 2018 – TODAY I AM CONSCIOUS THAT MY BODY IS VITALIZED BY THE LIVING CURRENTS OF LIFE  

TODAY I AM CONSCIOUS THAT MY BODY IS VITALIZED BY THE LIVING CURRENTS OF LIFE

And the prayer of faith shall save the sick, and the Lord shall raise him up…   

James 5:15

When we say that the body is spiritual we are not denying the physical body.  The physical is included within the spiritual. If the Spirit, or Divine Intelligence, has seen fit to give us a physical body it would be absurd to think of the body as an illusion unworthy of our attention.  Rather, we should think of the body as a spiritual instrument now.  Every statement we make about the body, or belief we hold about it, which causes the mind to accept Spirit as the substance of the body, tends to heal.
