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.

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”

NOTHING CAN GO FORTH FROM ME BUT GOODNESS, TRUTH, LOVE AND KINDNESS; THEREFORE NOTHING LESS THAN GOODNESS CAN COME BACK TO ME.

May 30 2015… If we love one another, God dwelleth in us, and his love is perfected in us.  I John 4:12

Every heart responds to the warmth of love.  Every mind yearns for its embrace and no life is complete without it.  Love really is the fulfillment of the Law of Good.  Love alone can heal the world and cause people to live together in unity and in peace.  Believing that love is the great lodestone of life and that love alone fulfills the Law of Good, quietly I say to myself: Continue reading “May 30, 2016”

TODAY I FEEL THE ACTIVE POWER OF GOD IN EVERYTHING

May 29 2015One God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you all.  Ephesians 4:6

The key thought for our meditation today is the idea that there is an active Presence of the creative Spirit in all our affairs – not something passive, but something that is moving in and through everything we do.  We should affirm that this Divine Presence is everywhere, that It is always active in, around and through us.

I USE DIVINE POWER IN PRACTICAL WAYS AND RIGHT ACTION PREVAILS IN MY AFFAIRS  

May 28 2015… What things soever ye desire when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them.   Mark 11:24

There could be no more explicit technique for effective prayer than this laid down by the Master himself.  We actually are to believe that we already possess the object of our desire when we ask for it.  We are to accept it even as we believe in the harvest which follows the spring planting.  Therefore, every spring should be one of hope and every harvest one of fulfillment.  We must learn to accept the good we desire and affirm its presence in our experience, here and now.

EVERY PART OF MY BODY IS IN HARMONY WITH THE LIVING SPIRIT WITHIN ME   

May 27 2015… I am the Lord that healeth thee.    Exodus 15:26

Spiritual mind healing has long since passed the experimental stage.  We now know that we cannot tell where the body begins and the mind leaves off, and many of us believe that the actions, organs, and functions of the physical body really are activities of the Divine Intelligence within us.  To come to realize, then, that there is One Body, which is the Body of God, and which at the same time is our own body, is to indraw a greater spirit of Life. We should daily affirm that: Continue reading “May 27, 2016”
