Nov. 27, 2018 – I WILL FEAR NO EVIL

I WILL FEAR NO EVIL

Are not the friends of God, those on whom no fear shall come, nor shall they be put to grief?

The Koran

Today my heart is without fear, for I have implicit confidence in the good, the enduring and the true. Fear is the only thing of which to be afraid.  It is not the host encamped against us, nor the confusion around us, that we need to fear; it is the lack of confidence in the good alone which should concern us.

Nov. 26, 2018 – LIFE SINGS THROUGH ME IN RADIANT ECSTASY

LIFE SINGS THROUGH ME IN RADIANT ECSTASY

The footsteps of those who dwell with the god of light are set free.

Book of the Dead

Now and always I recognize that I live, move and have my being in God.  I am part of Universal Mind.  I am one with Universal Substance.  All the qualities and all the wealth of good and desirable things that exist in Universal mind are mine now. Continue reading “Nov. 26, 2018 – LIFE SINGS THROUGH ME IN RADIANT ECSTASY”

Nov. 25, 2018 – THE LIFE OF THE FATHER IS MY LIFE

THE LIFE OF THE FATHER IS MY LIFE

When Heaven and Man exert their powers in concert, all transformations have their commencements determined.

The Texts of Taoism 

God could not withhold Himself from me.  That which is He has given fully unto me to enjoy. The life of God is perfect, it is eternal, it is the essence of all things.  That life is God’s gift to me.  Therefore, this fullness is within me, ready to manifest through me as I partake of it. Continue reading “Nov. 25, 2018 – THE LIFE OF THE FATHER IS MY LIFE”

Nov. 24, 2018 – I ACCEPT MY OWN SPIRITUAL AND PHYSICAL PERFECTION

I ACCEPT MY OWN SPIRITUAL AND PHYSICAL PERFECTION

He is a rock, his work is perfect: for all his ways are judgment: a God of truth and without iniquity, just and right is he.

Deuteronomy 32:4

My body is the temple of the Living God.  It is Spiritual Substance.  I have perfect confidence in my heart that God’s life-giving Spirit is my life. Since God is my life and God is eternal, my life is eternal.  Therefore I cannot be separated from God, from Good, from Perfection. Continue reading “Nov. 24, 2018 – I ACCEPT MY OWN SPIRITUAL AND PHYSICAL PERFECTION”

Nov. 23, 2018 – MY WORD DOES ACCOMPLISH

MY WORD DOES ACCOMPLISH

The first step that the soul of the faithful man made, placed him in the Good Thought Paradise;  The second step that the soul of the faithful man made, placed him in the Good Word Paradise; The third step that the soul of the faithful man made; placed him in the Good Deed Paradise.

The Zend-Avesta

Since thought is a definite, dynamic, creative, consciously directed and intelligent energy, then I know that a thought of Truth will definitely neutralize a negative argument.  I am on guard to protect my own word by knowing that it is the activity of Spirit through me and as such cannot be denied.  In effective prayer, I realize that a Power greater than I am consciously acts with creative intelligence upon my word. Continue reading “Nov. 23, 2018 – MY WORD DOES ACCOMPLISH”

Nov. 22, 2018 – TODAY I BESTOW THE ESSENCE OF LOVE UPON EVERYTHING

 TODAY I BESTOW THE ESSENCE OF LOVE UPON EVERYTHING

Love worketh no ill to his neighbor therefore love is the fulfilling of the law.

Romans 13:10

“The Law of the Lord is perfect” and the Law of the Lord is Love.  We are made perfect in the Law when we enter into the communion of love with one another and with the invisible essence of Life.  Love is the fulfillment of the Law, that is, we never can make the most perfect use of the Law unless that use is motivated by love, by a sincere desire to express unity, harmony and peace.  Continue reading “Nov. 22, 2018 – TODAY I BESTOW THE ESSENCE OF LOVE UPON EVERYTHING”

Nov. 21, 2018 – I RELY UPON THE ONE PERFECT ACTIVITY OF GOD

I RELY UPON THE ONE PERFECT ACTIVITY OF GOD

Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father.

John 14:12

The all-intelligent, creative Presence is the source of all that I am. I believe in the ability and the willingness of this great Source to sustain its own creation.  The Kingdom and the Power and the Glory of God expresses through me.  I recognize myself to be a center through which the intelligence and power of the universe find expression. Continue reading “Nov. 21, 2018 – I RELY UPON THE ONE PERFECT ACTIVITY OF GOD”

Nov. 20, 2018 – I HAVE CONFIDENCE IN MY UNDERSTANDING OF THE LAW

I HAVE CONFIDENCE IN MY UNDERSTANDING OF THE LAW

Despise no man and deem nothing impossible; every man hath his hour and everything its place.

The Talmud

I believe that no matter what the experience through which I am going, good will come out if it.  I believe that all poverty will be turned into riches; that all fear will be converted into faith. I believe that good finally will triumph over every evil and love will heal all hate.  I believe that I have a silent partnership with the Invisible; that this partnership has never dissolved and never can be.  I believe in the invisible Presence of Good in a universe peopled with perfect and eternal entities.  I believe that all things are possible to him who does believe.

Knowing that the law of God is a law of love, and knowing that the law of love is a law of liberty, I see freedom, joy, happiness, peace and wholeness in everything I look at.  I respond to the Divine calm which is at the center of everything.  Knowing that perfect love casteth out all fear, I am strong and confident because I know that the Law of Good goes with me and prepares the way before me.

I have complete confidence in my knowledge and understanding of the Law of Good. I not only know what is the Law, I know how to use It. I know that I shall obtain definite results through the use of It. I realize that doubts about my ability to use the Law are things of thought.  What thought has produced, thought can change.  Knowing this, having confidence in my ability to use the Law, and using It daily for specific purposes, gradually I build up an unshakable faith, both in the Law and possibility of demonstrating It.  There is no doubt in me, no uncertainty rising through me.  My mind rejoices in certainty and in assurance.  I confidently expect that my word shall not return unto me void.

Nov. 19, 2018 – CONSTANTLY, I PARTAKE OF THE DIVINE BOUNTY

CONSTANTLY, I PARTAKE OF THE DIVINE BOUNTY

There is nothing impossible of attainment by persons of virtuous behavior.

The Mahabharta

I have within myself, as I sit here, the sense that though my body is real, tangible, with definite form and outline, it is at the same time somehow made of a living stuff which is saturated with God-Life.   I know that whatever the stuff is of which my body is made, though it is called material, it must really be made of the One Stuff and Essence of which all things are made.  Therefore, I sense within the very cells and tissues of my body an Eternality.

Realizing that the Spirit within me is God, the Living Spirit Almighty, being fully conscious of this Divine Presence as the sustaining Principle of my life, I open my thought to Its influx. I open my consciousness to Its outpouring.  I let that Mind be in me which was also in Christ Jesus.  That is the Mind of Truth, the Mind of God, carrying with It all the power of the Infinite.

I am now inviting the Spirit within me to flood my mind with its wholeness, to bring warmth and color and feeling and love into everything I do, say and think. I believe that at the very center of my being there is the man whom God has made, a perfect man.  Therefore, I lay aside all fear, all doubt, all misunderstanding, all uncertainty.  I know that Life has need of me or it would not have put me here.

I know and understand that Good alone is real.  I know that silently I am drawing into my experience today and every day, an ever increasing measure of truth and beauty, of goodness, of harmony.  Everything I do, say and think is quickened into right action, into productive action, into increased action.  My invisible good already exists.  My faith, drawing upon this invisible good, causes that which was unseen to become visible.  All there is, is mine now; all there ever was or ever can be, is mine now.

Nov. 18, 2018 – “I KNOW THAT MY REDEEMER LIVETH”

NOVEMBER 18   

“I KNOW THAT MY REDEEMER LIVETH”

Not to be separate from his primal source constitutes what we call the Heavenly man; not to be separate from the essential nature thereof constitutes what we call the Spirit-like man; not to be separate from its real truth constitutes what we call the Perfect man.

The Texts of Taoism

It has been written that Christ is the Redeemer; also that Christ is in us.  We have been told that our redemption is at hand.  We have been told to awake and that Christ will give us light.  Therefore, I conclude that my redeemer lives and is now acting through me.  Why, then, is not my redemption at hand?  It is, but I have failed to see it.  Can it be possible that I am using the Creative Power to produce the very limitation from which I so earnestly seek to extricate myself?  Undoubtedly, this is true.  There are not two powers; there is but One Power.

Today I realize that life is truly a mirror of king and slave.  Today I realize that my redemption is at hand.  The Spirit within me refreshes me daily.  I feel myself saturated with the Life Essence Itself; I feel the same Life Essence flowing in and through me.  I feel myself to be a perfect instrument in Life’s divine symphony, in tune with its harmony and perfection.  My body is an instrument in, through and upon which Life plays a divine and perfect harmony.  I am not going out in search of another power but am going to use the Power which I know already possesses eternity and is already at the center of my own life.  I know that this will heal every condition, overcome every obstacle, break down every barrier, and free me from every false condition.  My redemption is already at hand.

I look confidently into the future.  I see new friendships, new opportunities.  Everything in my experience is renewed.  Everything is made glad and happy and whole.  As I turn to the world around me, I see this same good evenly distributed everywhere, and operating through all people.
