July 02, 2017 – I EXPRESS DIVINITY

I EXPRESS DIVINITY

We all, with open face beholding as in a glass the glory of the Lord, are changed into the same image from glory to glory … by the Spirit of the Lord. 

II Corinthians 3:18

Beholding the image of perfection in everything, dominion is added to glory.  This refers to the continual progression of the soul.  Since God is infinite, our expansion is progression and eternal.  No matter how much good we experience today, the Infinite has more in store for us tomorrow.  We should look forward to this expansion with enthusiastic anticipation.  The march of life is not a funeral dirge, but a song of triumph.

July 01, 2017 – I AM ONE WITH ALL HUMANITY

I AM ONE WITH ALL HUMANITY

Have we not all one Father?  Hath not one God created us? 

Malachi 2:10

Arthur Compton, in The Freedom of Man, tells us that science has discovered nothing which contradicts the idea of a Universal Mind or Spirit to which men are as Its, or His, children.  It would be impossible to converse with each other unless there were a common medium, or, as Emerson said, “one mind common to all individual men.”  It is impossible to depart from this Divine Presence, to be separated from this heavenly Father, which is the Parent Mind.  Since God is everywhere, wherever we are God is.

June 30, 2017 – I GIVE MY WORLD LOVE, JUSTICE AND TEMPERANCE 

I GIVE MY WORLD LOVE, JUSTICE AND TEMPERANCE 

“For all things proceed out this same spirit, which is differently named love, justice, temperance, in its different applications, just as the ocean receives different names on the several shores which it washes.” 

Emerson

God must act by means of me, for otherwise I have no purpose in life. I am; therefore that which caused me to be, must have a reason for my being.  I have confidence that the Infinite Mind knew what It was doing as It released me into the world.  I have a divine purpose and a spiritual reason for being.  I am not an accident of fate, nor a victim of inheritance.  I am a living soul equipped to display the attributes of God in my world.  I have within me the potentials of greatness, yes, the glory of God as he acts through man.  To me is given the Mind, Life and Love of God, and I accept my role in the Divine Plan. Continue reading “June 30, 2017 – I GIVE MY WORLD LOVE, JUSTICE AND TEMPERANCE “

June 29, 2017 – I REFUSE TO EXPERIENCE SICKNESS, POVERTY AND UNHAPPINESS

I REFUSE TO EXPERIENCE SICKNESS, POVERTY AND UNHAPPINESS

“Good is positive.  Evil is merely privative, not absolute; it is like cold which is the privation of heat.  All evil is so much death or nonentity.  Benevolence is absolute and real.” 

Emerson

I have free will as a part of my Divine Birthright.  This great power of mind is mine to use, and the Law of Mind must fulfill my direction.  I now declare my freedom from all evil.  I refuse to be dominated by illness, fear, lack and frustration.  God never made them, and I will have nothing to do with them. God in me knows only my perfect self, and this alone I recognize, affirm and accept.  Having the power to reject the undesirable, I now declare my freedom from evil.  Never again will negatives rule my thinking.  I am the perfect creation of a perfect God, and I know it. Continue reading “June 29, 2017 – I REFUSE TO EXPERIENCE SICKNESS, POVERTY AND UNHAPPINESS”

June 28, 2017 – THE PROBLEM OF EVIL NO LONGER INTRIGUES ME 

THE PROBLEM OF EVIL NO LONGER INTRIGUES ME

“These facts have always suggested to man the sublime creed that the world is not the product of manifold power, but of one will, of one mind; and that one mind is everywhere active, in each ray of the star, in each wavelet of the pool; and whatever opposes that will is everywhere balked and baffled, because things are made so, and not otherwise.”

Emerson

God dominates my whole experience.  There is so much of God everywhere in my life, that I cannot see any opposite.  My health cannot know disease and my prosperity cannot know decrease.  I am completely convinced that God is the only power. Mind is the only reality and Love is the only atmosphere.  Evil is a word without meaning.  I perceive the Truth and the Truth has set me free from all false speculations.  Within me, around me and through me there is nothing but pure Mind.  I bask in Its eternal embrace; I think in Its eternal consciousness of good. Continue reading “June 28, 2017 – THE PROBLEM OF EVIL NO LONGER INTRIGUES ME “

June 27, 2017 – MY SELECTION DETERMINES MY EXPERIENCE

MY SELECTION DETERMINES MY EXPERIENCE

“There is One Mind, and all the powers and privileges which lie in any, lie in all; and I, as a man, may claim and appropriate whatever of true or fair or good or strong has anywhere been exhibited.” 

Emerson

The universe is a spiritual system, and it gives to all men alike.  God in His creation knows neither great nor small.  It knows me only as an outlet of Its Ideas and Its Love.  To me is given all power in mind and in control of matter.  My authority is from on high, and the material thought of man cannot negate it. I stand in control of situations, I experience.  As my thinking determines my control of situations, I now assume my Divine Prerogative and think only of the things I desire.  No evil can withstand my determined spiritual mentation.  The gates of hell may open, but the windows of heaven shall still outpour me a blessing and triumph will always be mine. Continue reading “June 27, 2017 – MY SELECTION DETERMINES MY EXPERIENCE”

June 26, 2017 – THIS IS THE BEST DAY OF MY LIFE

THIS IS THE BEST DAY OF MY LIFE

“The genius of man is a continuation of the power that made him and that has not done making him.” 

Emerson

I have faith in an unlimited God, my own unlimited possibility, and an unlimited world in which I function. I see all restriction as temporary negative experience which can be healed by my highest thought of God.  Today, I am determined to live as a free agent of an unlimited Mind that knows only my possibility and is not interested in my own wrong beliefs.  God wants me to express Him today.  God has not finished creating, and His Plan for me unfolds with certainly and with precision.  I let Mind be in me what It has planned to be, and my success is sure. Continue reading “June 26, 2017 – THIS IS THE BEST DAY OF MY LIFE”

June 25, 2017 – I ACCEPT MYSELF AS THE HEALTH OF GOD   

I ACCEPT MYSELF AS THE HEALTH OF GOD   

“Mind is the only reality of which men and all other natures are better or worse reflectors.” 

Emerson

The natural state of all life is health.  Life is so organized that under normal circumstances It must be health.  Left to Its own devices the action of God in man maintains him in health.  Therefore, I let the Divine be in me what It planned to be, and my health is automatic.  I remove every mental and emotional obstruction to the already perfect Intelligence governing my body.  I am a spiritual being, operating through consciousness and experiencing body.  My body cannot make me ill, for Mind alone is cause.  I rejoice in my victory over disease. Continue reading “June 25, 2017 – I ACCEPT MYSELF AS THE HEALTH OF GOD   “

June 24, 2017 – I RECOGNIZE BUT ONE MIND, THE MIND OF GOD

I RECOGNIZE BUT ONE MIND, THE MIND OF GOD

“There is one mind common to all individual men.  Every man is an inlet to the same and to all of the same.  He that is once admitted to the right of reason is made a freeman of the whole estate.” 

Emerson

If there is but one mind, then God must be that Mind, and therefore God must be my mind now.  The unity of creation is evidence of One Creative Cause, and the process of creation is indicative that this Cause is pure Intelligence in action.  The world in which I live is the mind of God made visible.  The body I wear is Intelligence clothing me with a vehicle of accomplishment.  The works of my consciousness, my hands and my efforts are the outlets through which I release the one Mind into form.  I now accept the responsibility of knowing myself as the Mind of God in action. Continue reading “June 24, 2017 – I RECOGNIZE BUT ONE MIND, THE MIND OF GOD”

June 23, 2017 – I SIMPLIFY MY UNDERSTANDING OF GOD

I SIMPLIFY MY UNDERSTANDING OF GOD

“Whenever a mind is simple and receives a divine wisdom, old things pass away, – means, teachers, texts, temples fall; it lives now, and absorbs past and future into the present hours.”   

Emerson   

Jesus was not interested in the logics of theology; He was primarily concerned with the Spirit in man.  I now turn to the Spirit within me, and find It in all Its greatness and all Its peace.  There is an interior Christ-Mind that baffles all reasoning, and is beyond all human explanation.  In me at this moment, God abides in fullness, in richness, in omniscience.  My life today is the Life of God.  My thinking this day is accomplished because the God-Mind thinks through me.  My capacity to be a great and loving person is because greatness born of the Spirit indwells me.
