I ACCEPT MYSELF AS A CENTER OF DIVINE RELEASE

Jun 09 2015“Yourself, a newborn bard of the Holy Ghost, cast behind you all conformity, and acquaint men at first hand with Deity.”  Emerson

I accept myself as the outlet of the Infinite.  I believe in my Divine origin, my persistent inspiration, and my destiny of good.  I know that God gives freely of Himself to all, and my share is great. In me the Divine is seeking to create new trains of causation, which will enrich me and increase the good of all who know me.  The power which spoke through Moses, Isaiah and Jesus is the power which acts through me.  I have within me all the creative powers of Spiritual Genius, and I accept them and use them this day.  What others have done in the past, I can do now, and even greater works can I do.

MY GOD INDWELLS ME AS MIND AND LOVE 

Jun 08 2015“The nameless Thought, the nameless Power, the super-personal Heart, – he shall repose alone on that.  He needs only his own verdict.  No good fame can help him; no bad fame can hurt him.”  Emerson

There is but one infinite Mind, and It indwells me this day as the source of all life, all knowledge and all possible good.  This Mind is also Love.  It is a complete unity of all that ever has been, ever will be.  I know myself as Its vehicle of operation, and It acts without hindrance through me.  Not to the outer world do I look for help, but to the inner Source I turn for the full supply of every need.  In this inner consciousness of security I am no longer impressed by material fears.  All manner of evil may appear to assail me in my hectic world, but the peace within bids me to believe it not.

I RELY ON GOD ALONE TO MEET EVERY SITUATION   

Jun 07 2015“Instead of that reliance which the soul suggests, on the eternity of truth and duty, men are misled into a reliance on institutions, which the moment they cease to be the instantaneous creations of the devout sentiment are worthless.”    Emerson

I face my world with a courage born of my knowledge of God.  I am never alone, never deserted and never without aid.  My reliance is on Him who brought me forth to express His life divine.  Indwelling me, there is a center of Mind and Love, where Power awaits my recognition.  From this inner Christ I draw greatly on God.  The inexhaustible action of Divine Mind is the power of my thinking, and I have the courage to do all things.  Directed from within, I see the falsity of external authority.  God in the midst of me is my Power and my Deliverance from all that would beset me.

I KNOW MY OWN DIVINITY AND APPRECIATE IT 

Jun 06 2015“The purpose of life seems to be to acquaint a man with himself.  He is not to live in the future as described to him, but to live in the real future by living to the real present. The highest revelation is that God is in every man.”  Emerson

All Mind operates at a center within me.  All Love seeks an outlet through me.  God’s action in me is my own real Self, and to It I now devote my attention. I know myself as God knows me, and all disbelief is erased from my consciousness.  Contemplating myself as a spiritual being, I realize the vast possibilities before me.  I am unconditioned by the world, for I am Mind in action.  I now become the person I have always hoped to be.  Finding the Spirit within me, I change all my opinions of myself.  No more self-limitation, no more self-condemnation.  Today, I am God’s creation and as such I move forward in life.

WHAT I DECREE TODAY HAPPENS   

Jun 05 2015“A man contains all that is needful to his government within himself.  He is made a law unto himself.  All real good or evil that can befall him must be from himself.”  Emerson

I stand in a universe which responds to me.  My world being a subconscious intelligence must respond to my conscious thought, act upon it, and produce what I decree.  It has no power to resist me, and no way of not doing what I direct.  I act upon the One Mind and the world of form reacts to me in direct response.  My word is power.  My thought is a direction to the universal power and presence.  My active treatment is a command to the subconscious to produce what I want.  Knowing what I really want, I now speak with authority to my own mind, and the sum-total powers of the universe produce my command in form.  This is my power and my authority as a Son of God.

I RISE OUT OF THE OLD TO WALK WITH GOD IN THE NEW   

Jun 04 2015“Religion in the mind is not credulity, and in practice is not form.  It is a life.  It is the order and soundness of a man.  It is not something else to be got, to be added, but is a new life of those faculties you have.  It is to do right.”  Emerson

The world would have me tarry in the old, the traditional and the past.  But, the Infinite urges me forward, bidding me to keep pace with the fresh ideas emerging from the Divine Mind.  The truth is ever new to me.  Today’s inspiration is God’s action urging me to do a creative work.  Within me now is the order and soundness of God’s man.  I need add nothing more to my wisdom, for His Mind is mine, and I now produce good works.  I practice my knowledge of God.  I give factual evidence of my faith.  Whoever sees me this day sees the Spirit at work through me.  I do the right and loving thing. Continue reading “June 04, 2016”

TODAY IS UNCONDITIONED BY THE PAST

Jun 03 2015“Teach men that each generation begins the world afresh, in perfect freedom; that the present is not the prisoner of the past, but that today holds captive all the yesterdays, to judge, to accept, to reject their teachings, as they are shown by its own morning sun.”  Emerson

The Infinite Mind being eternal is not concerned with past, present nor future.  It knows me as a timeless being.  It offers to me all that It is, and never frowns at my lack of acceptance.  In a timeless God I allow my human thinking to become aged by experience, and then my complaints are many, and my excuses are profuse.  I use the past to explain the limitations of the present, and I fail to realize that only my acceptance of the past gives it power.  I now free my thinking from all past patterns and step forth this day as a new creature in Christ.  Too long have my alibis ensnared me.  They are as nothing when I declare the Truth.

I AM GOD’S MIND MADE VISIBLE 

Jun 02 2015

“The life of the soul in conscious union with the infinite shall be for thee the only real existence.”  Emerson

I live in God, the one Mind, the one Principle and the one Truth.  Body, world and material conditions are secondary to my consciousness, which is forever active in God’s Mind.  I am a mental being in a universe of mind-action, and the Law of Mind is mine to use in ways of righteousness and in ways if peace.  One with the Infinite I walk the pavements of time untouched by error and upheld by the Spirit.  From me proceeds the good, and to me comes the divine.  All of Life is now offering Itself to me, and I drink deeply of its healing waters.  My thirst for Truth is quenched, as I realize the Truth of myself as God made visible.

I AM TRUE TO MY HIGHEST PRINCIPLES

   

Jun 01 2015“Thou shalt not profess that which thou dost not believe.  Thou shalt not heed the voice of man when it agrees not with the voice of God in thine own soul.”  Emerson

To profess is easy, to practice is not easy.  All people proclaim their belief in God, but they rely on material help in every problem and pray as a last resort.  I now take my stand with myself.  I have no one other with whom to deal.  I am in my own world, and I now place God at the center and know that good appears at the circumference.  I refuse to declare my faith in God and still continue in my old material patterns of behavior. Today, the Lord becomes my physician, my lawyer, my counselor and my co-worker.  I lean not on my own understanding; I depend on Him who projected me as His own.  I shout from the housetops my own divinity.  I cry out to all, my dependence on the indwelling Spirit.

TODAY I ENTER INTO MY KINGDOM OF JOY, INTO MY INHERITANCE OF HAPPINESS

May 31 2015Thou wilt show me the path of life: in thy presence is fullness of joy: at thy right hand there are pleasures for evermore.  Psalm 16:11

James Whitcomb Riley said: “As it’s give me to perceive, I most certainly believe, when a man’s glad plumb through, God’s pleased with him, same as you.”  Jesus said that he came that we might have more life, not less.  There is nothing in the thought of God that should produce sadness or depression; rather, it should be quite the reverse, because faith, conviction and love should give us such confidence and such a sense of security and faith in the good that our lives should run over with joy and we should indeed be able to sing: “Joy to the world, the Lord has come.” Continue reading “May 31, 2016”
