I OVERCOME HATE BY THE RECOGNITION OF LOVE
There is but one Presence in the universe. Since It is in and through everything, It must be in and through you. This Presence manifests Itself in and through all forms, all people, and all conditions. This Presence is Life Itself. Its nature is love and givingness.
Negation may be an experience and a fact; it can never be an ultimate truth. Life cannot operate against itself. Always the negative is overcome by the positive. Good cannot fail to overcome evil. The meek alone shall inherit the earth. Finally, the consciousness of good must overcome the negation of evil. Finally, it will obliterate everything unlike itself, even as if the sun dissolves the mist.
I refuse to contemplate evil as a power.
I know that it will flee from me; it dissolves and disappears in the light of love.
I know that hate cannot exist where love is recognized.
I turn the searchlight of Truth upon every apparent evil in my experience.
This light dissolves every image of evil.
The manifestation of good is complete.
Love makes the way clear before me.
I am guided into an ever-widening experience of living.
My every thought and act is an expression of the goodness which flows from Life.
