Dec. 16, 2018 – NEW IDEAS ARE MINE THIS DAY

  

NEW IDEAS ARE MINE THIS DAY

But there is spirit in man: and the inspiration of the Almighty giveth them understanding.

Job 32:8

INSPIRATION is the act of the Infinite through man.  I now open my whole consciousness to it.  L let God give me the ideas I need to handle the questions of today.  From early morning until late at night, I am directed to right action through His Mind which indwells me.  Forever abiding in God’s Mind, I cannot fail through His Mind which indwells me.  Forever abiding in His Love, I cannot fail but understand my fellowman.  I look out upon a wonderful world alive with more good than I ever supposed.  Every contact today is a blessing to me, and to everyone I bring a larger peace and a greater joy.  Filled with the freshness of Mind, I give new impressions to my everyday tasks.

I refuse to believe that I shall meet problems.  I see these as tests of my ability to inaugurate a new idea born of God.  Each moment brings me the chance to live as a spiritual being of integrity.  The idea I need at this moment, I have.  The idea I shall need every moment of this day, I shall have.  God meets me in the hour, the moment and the instant of my need.  His inspiration is my security to handle all things rightly and all things lovingly.  What I see as a problem, God sees as an opportunity to release His Intelligence.  Knowing this, I am confident and serene.  Neither a person nor a situation can confound me.  I silently turn within and find the spiritual answer.

I welcome new ideas, for they mean a greater good for me.  They press upon me, they draw nigh unto me.  His Knowledge is available to me now, and I let It be in me a vital source of ideas.  Wisdom is mine to use, and I use it.  I cannot make a mistake today, for God’s omniscient Mind is my mind now.  We are one, and in this oneness, I am lead to right answers.  Immediate right guidance is mine.  I do not need to beseech, I only need to know that He in me is all in all.  Rejoicing in this perfect supply of inspiration, I cannot fail.  Where I am at every moment, His Mind is.  This is my security; this is my peace.  Conclusions born of God make easy my way.  I am receptive to God’s Ideas.

Dec. 15, 2018 – MY PRESENT EXPERIENCE IS GOOD

    

D

The superior man by determined good conduct nourishes his virtue.

I Ching 4: Immaturity

Today is the day which I prove that the power of Mind is greater than the power of material belief.  What I face today, and the mental attitude in which I face it, will determine my experience today.  I cannot blame my mistakes on the past.  The subtle deceit of so doing entices me, but I refuse to believe it.  I am not conditioned by my childhood, I am only conditioned by my present thinking.  The past with all its combination of good and bad is now only a force of creative memory.  What I have been is merely an indication of what I should be and shall be. No false glamorization of the past, only my recognition of the Now as potent with possibilities.  My present world is good.

My future is not dependent upon my past.  It is dependent upon my ability to think God’s thoughts today.  I know what I want to accomplish, and I know the way I shall go.  Today, I think as Cause to the tomorrow which will be in effect.  My aims are clear, my goal is in sight.  I can become the person God intended me to become, and what I shall be will be good, creative and honest.  I look forward to my full demonstration, and I think today in tomorrow’s terms.  I live now as though my dreams were true, for they are true.

God in me, acting through me, is the doer of the present moment.  Right where I am, God is.  In my thinking at this moment Divine Mind is the real thinker.  Around me is the plastic substance of all like, and I mold it this day to bring forth what I want.  The Law of mind is mine to use and to employ.  Today’s thinking brings forth tomorrow’s demonstration.  So, I look out at my present experience and name it good.  It is my only place to start, and I begin to give God to my day.  Recognizing each hour as my possibility to prove Truth, I think as Spirit and act as Love.  I do not hesitate to deny evil and affirm the good.  I watch my thought and handle negatives.  I see Good in my present experience.

Dec. 14, 2018 – GOD’S EFFORTLESS POWER IS MINE TO USE

GOD’S EFFORTLESS POWER IS MINE TO USE

See truth as it is and be forever free of opposition and contention.

Garland Sutra 11

I am my only enemy.  My wrong beliefs about life cause me to strain and struggle with my problems.  Idecide right now to let the effortless Power of Mind act through me, and give me my freedom from struggle.  No more weariness, no more “working for a living.” This I have discarded.  From now on I shall let the Truth control  my life.  My burden is easy and my way islight because of this decision.  My human thinking steps aside to let in God’s healing thought.  Weary of humanity, I now seek my own Divinity.  In me is the Power of God.  It created me to act through me,and I let It act.  God knows no difficulties, not do I.  The universe displays an effortless action of Intelligence and cohesion.  This is true of my world around me, so it must be true of the world within me.

Infinite Mind has no useless Ideas, so I am of value to this world.  I now let God’s purpose create me into the being It had planned me to be.  Whiter I go Divine Wisdom knows, and what I shall be the Divine Plan has prepared.  This now takes over all my thinking and feeling, and I become the Son of god that Mind intended me to be.  Turning over all my human decisions to the Divine Knowing is easy, and Its ways make my pathway clear. I no longer struggle to be my human self.  I let God in me be whatever It has planned for me to be.  Divine Wisdom guides me, Divine Love enfolds me, and success is all that can be before me.  I let God decide.

The effortless power of the Spirit is mine to use and to enjoy.  I give it directions to produce for me health, prosperity and happiness.  This it does, because God acts at my level of consciousness.  In me God loves to be healthy.  In me God wants to be freedom in finance.  In me God wants to be love.  As an individualized outlet of the Spirit, I now take my rightful place in life.  I cease all human efforts to be good, and I let the Divine in me be what It wants to be.  God knows my next step, and reveals it.  I relax and let Mind reveal Its next idea.  God will produce my good, when I let Him do it, and this I now do.

Dec. 12, 2018 – I AM IMMERSED IN INTELLIGENCE AND LOVE

I AM IMMERSED IN INTELLIGENCE AND LOVE

To love is to know Me, My innermost nature, the truth that I am.

The Bhagavad-Gita

All of God is where I am, and all of Good is offered to me.  I waste no more time seeking the Truth, for I am in It and It is in me.  The present thinking is God’s Intelligence and God’s Love.  My present thinking is God’s channel of action. My present mood is the way Love acts through me.  I now think as God thinks, and feel as God feels. Continue reading “Dec. 12, 2018 – I AM IMMERSED IN INTELLIGENCE AND LOVE”

Dec. 11, 2018 – GOD MAINTAINS ME IN BALANCE

GOD MAINTAINS ME IN BALANCE

He has attendant angels, before him and behind him, watching over him by God’s command.

The Koran

The Creative Power is a mathematically exact power.  I may strive to have my own way, but in the long run God always has His way.  The Law of Mind cannot be broken, and the ways of Mind cannot be used for my own selfish ends.  There is a divine Law of balance forever maintained.  My petty likes and dislikes have no power and no reality. Continue reading “Dec. 11, 2018 – GOD MAINTAINS ME IN BALANCE”

Dec. 10, 2018 – GOD IS NOT HANDICAPPED BY ME

GOD IS NOT HANDICAPPED BY ME

What knoweth thou, that we know not?  What understandeth thou, which is not in us?

Job 15:9

The unlimited action of the Spirit works through me, and even I cannot hinder Its perfect results.  The Divine processes cannot be altered nor confused by me.  The Omnipotence of God cannot be stopped by my will.  Its action can be directed, but its flow will never cease.  I now direct It into constructive channels that bless and benefit me and my fellowman. Continue reading “Dec. 10, 2018 – GOD IS NOT HANDICAPPED BY ME”

Dec. 09, 2018 – MONEY IS GOD IN ACTION

MONEY IS GOD IN ACTION

The virtuous, excellent man cheerfully attains the state of the gods.

Uttaradhyayana Sutra 7.21

Money is God’s means of giving me ease and freedom.  It is the symbol of the Divine Supply forever maintaining me in comfort.  I like money, and I appreciate the money I use.  I like all people who have money, spend money and enjoy the use of money.  I like the comfort and luxuries of life, and I believe God wants me to be happy and prosperous.  I do not want another’s money, because God gives me the ability to earn my own.  My earning capacity depends upon my consciousness, and I now have a prosperity consciousness.  I receive money with appreciation, and I spend my money with wisdom.  I know that God is my source and that more money flows in to fill my every need.  Money is God in action.

I think in large and generous terms.  Realizing my thinking determines my experience, I now let money appear in all possible ways.  My faith determines my fortune.  All of God offers Itself to me, and my financial ease is a part of God’s loving care of me.  I rejoice when I pay my bills. I see each bill as an avenue for releasing abundance into a good channel.  Everyone I owe has faith in me, and I am worthy of that faith.  I pay my bills on time and with joy.  I love to release the good which has come to me.  Money is mine to use, but not to own.  It circulates in my life with accuracy and ease.  God’s money comes to me in order that I shall pay it out.  Money is God’s ease in my life.

The universe supports me and maintains me in freedom, because God is the Source and Continuance of good.  The Mind which created me sustains me.  I use money for the Glory of God, and good of my fellowman and the ease of my own experience. I do not worship it, nor overevaluate it. I see it as a means if exchange.  I have no fear of lack, for always God prospers an alert mind.  Recognizing the spiritual value in money, it increases in my world.  Money received and spent with wisdom is the circulation of ease for man.  I have a right to this ease, and I claim it.   The things that money can buy will make my life richer and easier.  I know my spiritual responsibility for the right use of money.  Money is God’s way of making my life free.

In all things ye have approved yourselves to be clear in this matter.

II Corinthians 7:11

I always make right decisions, for within me is That which knows. The revelations of Truth have come to others, so they now come to me.  Eternal Mind is not restricted to a time, an era nor a certain religion.  The Infinite which released Itself through the great people of all times now releases Itself through me.

Dec. 07, 2018 – A LIGHT IS IN EVERY MAN, AND I BEHOLD IT

A LIGHT IS IN EVERY MAN, AND I BEHOLD IT

Let all mankind be thy sect.

Adi Granth Japuji 28,M. 1

Humanity is Divinity made visible.  We are good people in the sight of our Creator.  Knowing this, I see my neighbor as a part of the Divine Plan for all.  His ideas may not be mine, but they are right for him.  I may not agree with the outer man, but I must agree with the inner one.  In him is the Spirit of Truth, the need for self-expression and the vision of what he can become.  Continue reading “Dec. 07, 2018 – A LIGHT IS IN EVERY MAN, AND I BEHOLD IT”
