Sep. 11, 2016 – I BEAR THE ETERNAL STAMP OF INDIVIDUALITY

I BEAR THE ETERNAL STAMP OF INDIVIDUALITY

sep-11-2015Life has set the stamp of individuality on your soul.  You are different from any other person who has ever lived.  You are an individualized center in the Consciousness of God.  You are an individualized activity in the Action of God.

DIVINE CIRCULATION ANIMATES MY BEING

sep-10-2015The Chinese sage said that Tao (meaning Spirit) “Produces everything, nourishes everything, and maintains everything.”  It flows through and is in all things, being all that is.  There is nothing outside it.  There is a spiritual Presence pervading the universe, welling up in your consciousness, always proclaiming Itself to be the source of your being.  The enlightened ones of the ages have told you that your recognition of Life is God within you recognizing Himself in everything you do.

Sep. 09, 2016 – I EXPERIENCE ABIDING PEACE

I EXPERIENCE ABIDING PEACE

Sep 09 2015Peace must exist at the center of everything or the universe itself would be a chaos.  You already know this and believe it, now you are going to act upon it.  You are not going to believe in it, you are going to act as though it were true.  There is peace at the center of your being – a peace that can be felt throughout the day and in the cool of the evening when you have turned from your labor and the first star shines in the soft light of the sky. It broods over the earth quietly, tenderly, as a mother watches over her child. Continue reading “Sep. 09, 2016 – I EXPERIENCE ABIDING PEACE”

THE PROTECTING POWER OF THE INFINITE SUSTAINS ME

Sep 08 2015As a child turns to its parents for comfort, so every man is relying on God, whether or not he realizes it.  This concept is so universal that it has been present in every age, with all people, and at all times.  Jesus dared to place his hand serenely in the Hand of the Invisible.  His works justified his words; his faith was manifest through his acts.
