Key Scripture:

Psalm 23:1 “The LORD is my shepherd. I lack nothing.”

Sermon Thesis:

Your connection to the field of potentiality provides accurate and unlimited guidance, every time, all the time.

Key Points

POINT #1: The purpose of the conscious phase of mind is to identify problems and formulate goals.

– Harmony results when everyone plays their part. Story of learning that on a film, the right people have to do the right things in order for things to flow smoothly.

– The conscious mind is ill-equipped to draw a sound conclusion because it only sees as far as you have gone. Only the superconscious and subconscious minds, working in tandem can see farther than your present circumstances.

– We forget to ask for help.

– We think it’s weak to ask for help.

Sep. 26, 2022 – SPIRIT PERMEATES MY CONSCIOUSNESS AND ENVIRONMENT

SEPTEMBER 26

SPIRIT PERMEATES MY CONSCIOUSNESS AND ENVIRONMENT

For all the law is fulfilled in one word, even in this: Thou shall love thy neighbor as thyself.

Galatians 5:14

It is only as you live affirmatively that you can be happy.  Knowing that there is but one Spirit in which everyone lives, moves and has his being, you are to feel this Spirit not only in your consciousness but in your affairs.  You are united with all.  You are one with the eternal Light Itself.  The Presence of Spirit within you blesses everyone you meet, tends to heal everything you touch, and brings gladness into the life of everyone you contact.  Therefore, you are a blessing to yourself, to humanity and to the day in which you live.  Say:

Today I uncover the perfection within me.

In its fullness I reveal the indwelling Kingdom.

I look out upon the world of my affairs, knowing that the Spirit within me makes my way both immediate and easy.

I know there is nothing in me that could obstruct or withhold the divine circuit of Life and Love which Good is.

My word dissolves every negative thought or impulse that could throw a shadow over my perfection.

Good flows through me to all.

Good shines through my thoughts and actions.

Good harmonizes my mind so that love sings joyously in manifesting perfection in every cell, organ and function.

Good harmonizes my mind so that Love sings joyously in my heart.

I am in complete unity with Good.

Taken from “365 Days of Richer Living” by Ernest Holmes and Raymond Charles Barker

Sep. 25, 2022 – I HAVE COMPLETE CONFIDENCE IN THE LAW OF GOOD

SEPTEMBER 25   

I HAVE COMPLETE CONFIDENCE IN THE LAW OF GOOD

When Heaven and Man exert their power in concert, all transformations have their commencements determined.

The Texts of Taoism

The good in which you believe can triumph over every evil you have experienced.  You have a silent partnership with the Infinite.  This partnership has never been dissolved, it never can be.  You are to have implicit confidence in your own ability, knowing that it is the nature of thought to externalize itself in your affairs, knowing that you are the thinker.  You are going to turn resolutely from every sense of lack, want and limitation, and declare that the perfect Law of God is operating in, for and through you.  Say: 

I have complete confidence in my knowledge and understanding of the law of Good.

I not only know what this Law is, I know how to use it.

I know that I shall obtain definite results through the use of it.

Knowing this, having confidence in my ability to use the Law, and using It daily for specific purposes, gradually I build up an unshakable faith, both in the Law and the possibility of demonstrating It.

Therefore, today I declare that the law of the Lord is perfect in everything I do.

Today I believe in Divine Guidance.

Today I believe that “underneath are the everlasting arms.”

Today I rest in this divine assurance and this divine security.

I know, not only that all is well with my soul, my spirit and my mind – all is well with my affairs.

Taken from “365 Days of Richer Living” by Ernest Holmes and Raymond Charles Barker

Sep. 24, 2022 – THE ESSENCE OF LOVE EXPRESSES THROUGH ME AS HARMONY

SEPTEMBER 24

THE ESSENCE OF LOVE EXPRESSES THROUGH ME AS HARMONY

Fulfill ye my joy, that ye be like-minded, having the same love, being of one accord, of one mind.

Philippians 2:2

“The law of the Lord is perfect,” and the law of the Lord is love.  You are made perfect in the law when you enter into conscious communion with the love.  It is only through love that the law can fulfill itself in your experience, because love harmonizes everything, unifies everything.  You can never make the most perfect use of the law of your life unless that use is motivated by love.

As the artist weds himself to beauty, imbibing the essence or spirit of beauty that it may be transmitted to the canvas or awakens the cold marble to living form, so you must wed yourself to love.  You must imbibe its spirit.  This love is more than a sentiment.  It is a deep sense of the underlying unity and beauty of all life, the goodness running through everything, the givingness of Life to everything.  Say:

Today I bestow the essence of Love upon everything.

Everyone shall be lovely to me.

My soul meets the soul of the universe in everyone.

Everything is beautiful, everything is meaningful.

This Love is a healing power touching everything into wholeness, healing the wounds of experience with its divine balm.

I know that this Love Essence is the very Substance of Life, the creative Principle back of everything, flowing through my whole being, spiritual, emotional, mental and physical.

It flows in transcendent loveliness into my world of thought and form, ever renewing, vitalizing, bringing joy, harmony and blessing to everything and everyone it touches.

Taken from “365 Days of Richer Living” by Ernest Holmes and Raymond Charles Barker

Sep. 23, 2022 – I SENSE THE DIVINE PRESENCE WITHIN ME

SEPTEMBER 23

I SENSE THE DIVINE PRESENCE WITHIN ME

Conceiving nothing is impossible unto thyself, think thyself deathless and able to know all – all arts, all sciences, the way of every life.

Thrice-Greatest Hermes

The Spirit of God is an undivided and indivisible Wholeness.  It fills all time with Its presence and people space with the activity of Its thought.  Your endeavor, then, is not so much to find God as it is to realize His Presence and to understand that this Presence is always with you.  Nothing can be nearer to you that that which is the very essence of your being.  Your outward search for God culminates in the greatest of all possible discoveries – the finding of Him at the center of your own being. Life flows up from within you. 

Say:

I know that my search is over.

I am aware of the Presence of the Spirit.

I have discovered the great reality.

I am awake to the realization of this Presence.

There is but one Life.

Today I see It reflected in every form, back of every countenance, moving through every act.

Knowing that the Divine Presence is in everyone I meet, the Spirit is all people, I salute the good in everything.

I recognize the God Life responding to me from every person I meet, in every event that transpires, in every circumstance in my experience.

I feel the warmth and color of this Divine Presence forevermore pressing against me, forevermore welling up from within me – the well-spring of Eternal Being present yesterday, today, tomorrow, and always.

Sep. 22, 2022 – I PARTAKE OF THE DIVINE BOUNTY

SEPTEMBER 22

I PARTAKE OF THE DIVINE BOUNTY

This is the goodness of God.  He bestoweth it on whom He will; God is of immense goodness!

The Koran

Today you are to identify yourself with the more abundant life, to think on those things which make for peace, to dwell on the unity which underlies everything.  As you poise yourself in the realization that you live in pure Spirit, new power will be born within you.  You will find yourself renewed by the Divine Life, led by Divine intelligence and guarded by Divine love.  Focus your inward vision on this indwelling harmony, knowing that as you contemplate its perfection you will see it manifest in everything you do.  Say:

Realizing that the Spirit within me is God, the living Spirit Almighty, being fully conscious of this Divine Presence as the sustaining Principle of my life, I open my thought to It’s influx; I open my consciousness to Its outpouring.

I know and understand that Good alone is real.

I know that I am drawing into my experience today, and every day, an ever-increasing measure of truth and beauty, of goodness and harmony.

Everything I do, say and think is quickened into right action, into productive action, into increased action.

My invisible good already exists; my faith drawing upon this invisible good, causes that which was unseen to become visible.

All there is, is mine NOW; all there ever was or ever can be, is mine NOW.

Taken from “365 Days of Richer Living” by Ernest Holmes and Raymond Charles Barker

Sep. 21, 2022 – MY FAITH MAKES ME WHOLE

SEPTEMBER 21

MY FAITH MAKES ME WHOLE

Yea, thou shalt not find any variableness in the way of God.

The Koran

Faith is a mental attitude.  A certain man came to Jesus, and, from the inspiration of his hope and the enthusiasm of the occasion, standing in the light of one whose wick of life was ever kept trimmed and burning, feeling the warmth and color of its eternal glow, exclaimed, “I believe!”  This was a simple, sincere and enthusiastic response to the consciousness of one who had faith.  But no sooner had he exclaimed, “I believe!” out of the enthusiasm of his will to believe, than old thought patterns arose to block his faith and he said, “Help thou mine unbelief.”

Faith then is more than an objective statement.  Perfect faith cannot exist while there are subjective contradictions that deny the affirmation of the lips.  It is only when the intellect is no longer obstructed by negative reactions arising from experiences of doubt and fear that the words of the mouth can immediately bear fruit.  Say:

I believe with a deep inward calm that my word of faith is the execution of spiritual Law in my life.

I have absolute reliance upon the Law of Good.

I believe that the Law of Good will bring everything desirable into my experience.

Today I proclaim my Divine inheritance.

I am rich with the richness of God; I am strong with the power of God; I am guided by the wisdom of God.

I am held in the goodness of God, today.

Sep. 20, 2022 – GUIDANCE AND WISDOM BELONG TO ME

SEPTEMBER 20

GUIDANCE AND WISDOM BELONG TO ME

Thou hast begotten the Man in Thy self-born Mind, and in Thy Reflection and conception.  He is the man begotten of Mind, to whom Reflection gave form.

Fragments of a Faith Forgotten

Realizing that all action starts in, and is a result of, consciousness, prepare your mind to receive the best that life has to offer.  Become increasingly aware of the one Presence, the one Life and the one Spirit, which is God.  Try to drop all sense of lack or limitation from your thought.  The Spirit works for you through your belief.  All things are possible to this Spirit; therefore, everything is possible to you in such a degree as you can believe in and accept the operation of Spirit in your life.  There is something within you which is completely aware of its oneness with power, of its unity with Life.  Loose all thoughts of discord and fear, and permit the true pattern to come to the surface.  Say:

I allow the Divine Wholeness to flow through me in ever widening circles of activity.

Every good I have experienced is now increased.

Every joy that has come into my life is now multiplied.

There is a new influx of inspiration into my thought.

I see more clearly than ever before that my divine birthright is freedom, joy and eternal goodness.

The Divine Presence interprets Itself to me through love and friendship, through peace and harmony.

Knowing that life gives according to my faith, I lift my mind, I elevate my faith, I listen deeply to the song of my being.

Taken from “365 Days of Richer Living” by Ernest Holmes and Raymond Charles Barker

Sep. 19, 2022 – I CLAIM MY DIVINE INHERITANCE

SEPTEMBER 19

I CLAIM MY DIVINE INHERITANCE

Seek for the great (mysteries) and the little shall be added unto you; seek for the heavenly and the earthy shall be added unto you.

Fragments of a Faith Forgotten

“Beloved, now are we the sons of God.”  Your kingdom of God is at hand.  The riches, power, glory and might of this kingdom are yours today.  You do not rob others by entering into the fullness of your kingdom of joy, your kingdom of abundance.  You recognize that all people belong to the same kingdom.  You are merely claiming for yourself what you would that the law of good should be unto all.

There is no law of human heredity imposed upon you.  Evil has no history.  Limitation has no past.  That which is opposed to good has no future.  The eternal now is forever filled with the presence of perfect life.  You always have been, and forever will remain, a complete and perfect expression of the Eternal Mind, which is God, the living Spirit Almighty.  Say:

Today I enter into the limitless variations of self-expression which the Divine Spirit projects into my experience.

Knowing that all experience is a play of Life upon Itself, the blossoming of love into self-expression, the coming forth of good into the joy of its own being, I enter into the game of living with joyful anticipation, with enthusiasm.

Today I enter into my Divine inheritance free from the belief that external conditions are imposed upon me.

I declare the freedom of my Divine son ship.

Sep. 18, 2022 – MY WORD ACCOMPLISHES

SEPTEMBER 18

MY WORD ACCOMPLISHES

So likewise thou in all thy speech Swerve never from the path of truth.

Buddhism in Translations

You are either attracting or repelling in accord with your mental attitudes.  You are either identifying yourself with lack or with abundance, with love and friendship or with indifference.  You cannot keep from attracting into your experience that which corresponds to the sum total of your states of consciousness.  This law of attraction and repulsion works automatically.  It is like the law of reflection – the reflection corresponds to the image held before a mirror.  Your life is a mirror peopled with the forms of your own acceptance.

How careful, then, you should guard your thoughts, not only seeing to it that you keep them from doubt and fear – accepting only the good – but, equally, you should consciously repel every thought which denies that good.  Say:

I know that my word penetrates any unbelief in my mind, casts out fear, removes doubt, clears away obstacles, permitting that which is enduring, perfect and true to be realized.

I have complete faith and acceptance that all the statements I make will be carried out as I have believed.

I do everything with a sense of reliance upon the Law of Good, therefore, I know that my word shall not return unto me void.

I accept this word and rejoice in it.

I expect complete and perfect results from it.

Taken from “365 Days of Richer Living” by Ernest Holmes and Raymond Charles Barker

Sep. 17, 2022 – MY BODY IS A TEMPLE OF SPIRIT

SEPTEMBER 17

MY BODY IS A TEMPLE OF SPIRIT

If you keep your body as it should be, and look only at the one thing, the Harmony of Heaven will come to you.

Kwang-Tze

Your body is a temple of the living Spirit.  It is spiritual substance.  Since the Spirit of God has entered into your being, your life is spiritual.  The Supreme Being, ever present, exists at the very center of your thought.  This Presence within you has the power to make all things new.  Say:

The perfect Life of God is in and through me, in every part of my being.

As the sun dissolves the mist, so my acceptance of Life dissolves all pain and discord.

I am free because the Spirit of Life in me is perfect.

It remolds and recreates my body after the likeness of the Divine pattern of body which exists in the Mind of God.

Even now the living Spirit is flowing through me.

I open wide the doorway of my consciousness to Its influx.

I permit this physical body to receive the living Spirit in every action, function, cell and organ.

I know that my whole being manifests the life, love, peace, harmony, strength and joy of the Spirit which indwells me, which is incarnated in me, which is my entire being.

I open my consciousness to the realization that all the Power and Presence there is clothes me in Its eternal embrace; that the Spirit forever imparts Its life to me.

I know that the Spirit within me is my strength and my power.
