Oct. 08, 2018 – I AM SURROUNDED, UPHELD AND MAINTAINED BY A PERFECT MIND

I AM SURROUNDED, UPHELD AND MAINTAINED BY A PERFECT MIND

The spirit of God hath made me, and the breath of the Almighty hath given me life. 

Job 33:4

The people in all ages who have lifted up their eyes unto the hills of God have felt a surrounding Presence and a sustaining Life.  They have been aware of an indwelling Power that was more than body, more than material living.  It has surged up within them and has given them the power of accomplishment.  Because this Presence is eternal, we can find It and let It use us today, as it did the Prophets and Wise of old.  The living Presence which surrounded Abraham, Moses, Isaiah and Jesus is around us now, and It asks that we behold It and think of It.   The Glory of God is upon us.  We, too, can lift up our thoughts and become its vessel of expression.  Infinite Mind surrounds us and is in us; Infinite Life sustains us; Infinite Power flows through us.  All fear is removed for we are certain of who we are and of what we are doing.  We arise from the “I can’t” belief into the “I will” knowing.

I am surrounded, upheld and maintained by Mind.  This Mind is God, forever thinking through me.  It knows no impossibility, no weakness, no lack.  It loves to live abundantly by means of me.  It loves to express Power through my hands and my heart.  I am strong in the Strength of the Lord.  I am sustained in all my ways by the indwelling action of Truth.  I am upheld in righteousness and justice, for all that I am God is and ever shall be.  I walk the highways of Spirit, knowing only the good of my fellowman.  I rejoice in the Spirit which fills and floods me with peace.  This day is the day of Good, and I accept with joy new and finer experiences of life.

Oct. 07, 2018 – THERE ISN’T GOD AND MAN; THERE IS ONLY GOD AS MAN; AND I AM THAT MAN NOW

THERE ISN’T GOD AND MAN; THERE IS ONLY GOD AS MAN; AND I AM THAT 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.  Continue reading “Oct. 07, 2018 – THERE ISN’T GOD AND MAN; THERE IS ONLY GOD AS MAN; AND I AM THAT MAN NOW”

Oct. 06, 2018 – MY ENVIRONMENT IS SATURATED WITH THE PRESENCE OF GOOD

MY ENVIRONMENT IS SATURATED WITH THE PRESENCE OF GOOD

Thou wilt show me the path of life: in thy presence is fullness of joy; at thy right hand there are pleasures forever more. 

Psalm 16:11

If we cannot demonstrate the presence of good where we are, we shall never be able to do it at what seems a better place.  The human mind likes to think that distant pastures are greener, but we know they are not.  Good is the result of right thinking based on right motives. It is not a location; it is an atmosphere which has to be revealed by us wherever we are. Continue reading “Oct. 06, 2018 – MY ENVIRONMENT IS SATURATED WITH THE PRESENCE OF GOOD”

Oct. 05, 2018 – I AM IMPORTANT TO GOD AND NECESSARY TO MAN

I AM IMPORTANT TO GOD AND NECESSARY TO MAN

A man indeed ought not to cover his head, forasmuch as he is the image and glory of God. 

I Corinthians 11:7

It is easy to discredit ourselves, indulge in self-criticism, and walk through life thinking we are unimportant.  But, we forget one thing – God never makes a mistake.  Infinite Mind can only create people with a value to themselves, and to the world.  Continue reading “Oct. 05, 2018 – I AM IMPORTANT TO GOD AND NECESSARY TO MAN”

Oct. 04, 2018 –  MY MIND IS ESTABLISHED IN GOD AND ONLY GOOD IS DRAWN TO ME

 MY MIND IS ESTABLISHED IN GOD AND ONLY GOOD IS DRAWN TO ME

No man can come to me, except the Father which hath sent me draw him. 

John 6:44

We believe that life to each of us is in accordance with our states of consciousness.  Jesus is the illustration to this age that man’s inherent Divinity can be quickened into new activities of consciousness, and thus new and better conditions can follow.  He knew that his mind was the individualization of God’s Mind.  Continue reading “Oct. 04, 2018 –  MY MIND IS ESTABLISHED IN GOD AND ONLY GOOD IS DRAWN TO ME”

Oct. 03, 2018 – I DO NOT LABOR:  I WORK FOR THE GLORY OF GOD AND THE GOOD OF MY FELLOWMAN

I DO NOT LABOR:  I WORK FOR THE GLORY OF GOD AND THE GOOD OF MY FELLOWMAN

Come unto me all ye that labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.  For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light. 

Matthew 11:28, 30

Today, as metaphysicians we should be clear in our thoughts as to the difference between labor and work. The word “labor” infers drudgery, while the word “work” infers creative activity producing a just and fair profit for all concerned.  We are co-workers with God, co-workers with a Mind that knows exactly what to do and how to do it. Continue reading “Oct. 03, 2018 – I DO NOT LABOR:  I WORK FOR THE GLORY OF GOD AND THE GOOD OF MY FELLOWMAN”

Oct. 02, 2018 – I HAVE NOTHING TO FEAR, FOR GOD IS ALL THERE IS

I HAVE NOTHING TO FEAR, FOR GOD IS ALL THERE IS

Fear thou not; for I am with thee:  be not dismayed; for I am thy God: … yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness.

Isaiah 41:10

If we believe in the omnipresence of God, we can handle the age old problem of fear.  Fear is the belief that God is absent.  It is the only devil there is, and if it governs our thinking we can experience the only hell there is.  If we are overcome by it, we are headed for trouble and disease.  Both the old and the New Testaments tell us that this enemy can be overcome.  Continue reading “Oct. 02, 2018 – I HAVE NOTHING TO FEAR, FOR GOD IS ALL THERE IS”

Oct. 01, 2018 – I AM THE PERFECT CREATION OF A PERFECT GOD

I AM THE PERFECT CREATION OF A PERFECT GOD

So God created man in His own image, in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them.  Genesis 1:27

We cannot conceive of the nature of God as other than a perfect Being, whose intelligence is forever creating, re-creating and sustaining a perfect universe inhabited by a perfect man.  All the arguments devised by those who are unable to perceive this Truth become as nothing when we look at our world and see God in every flaming bush and every act of Nature. Continue reading “Oct. 01, 2018 – I AM THE PERFECT CREATION OF A PERFECT GOD”

Sept. 30, 2018 – I OVERCOME HATE BY THE RECOGNITION OF LOVE

I OVERCOME HATE BY THE RECOGNITION OF LOVE

And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.

John 1:5

There is but one Presence in the universe.  Since It is in and through everything, It must be in and through you.  This Presence manifests Itself in and through all forms, all people, and all conditions.  This Presence is Life Itself.  Its nature is love and givingness. Continue reading “Sept. 30, 2018 – I OVERCOME HATE BY THE RECOGNITION OF LOVE”

Sept. 29, 2018 – THE HEALING CHRIST ABIDES WITH ME

THE HEALING CHRIST ABIDES WITH ME

 Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.

Galatians 6:7

 You have heard about the healing Christ who can come to you with power.  Do you realize that this Christ is already here?  This Christ is the incarnation of God in every individual.  There is not a person who lives that does not at some time in his life sense this inward Presence, this vision of the Divine which presses against us.  It is seeking entrance through our thoughts.  We must open the door of our consciousness and permit It to enter.  It is willingness, acceptance and recognition that give entrance to the Divine Presence.  It is faith and acknowledgment that permits Its creative power to flow through our word.

Say:

Today I am opening my consciousness to a realization of the living Christ, the eternal Sonship of the everlasting Father.

I know that He dwells in me; I know that there is an invisible Guide, a living Presence with me at all times.

With complete simplicity and directness, I recognize my Divine center.

Consciously, I unify myself with this pure Spirit in which I live, move and have my being.

I am strong with the strength of the all-vitalizing power of pure Spirit.

I am sustained by Divine Energy which flows through me as radiant health and vitality.

Every atom of my being responds to this Divine Presence.

I completely surrender myself to It.
