I RECOGNIZE BUT ONE MIND, THE MIND OF GOD
“There is one mind common to all individual men. Every man is an inlet to the same and to all of the same. He that is once admitted to the right of reason is made a freeman of the whole estate.” Emerson
If there is but one mind, then God must be that Mind, and therefore God must be my mind now. The unity of creation is evidence of One Creative Cause, and the process of creation is indicative that this Cause is pure Intelligence in action. The world in which I live is the mind of God made visible. The body I wear is Intelligence clothing me with a vehicle of accomplishment. The works of my consciousness, my hands and my efforts are the outlets through which I release the one Mind into form. I now accept the responsibility of knowing myself as the Mind of God in action.
Knowing all men as the means by which the one Mind acts, I know true equality. I am no greater than anyone else, and no other soul is greater than I am. All races and all creeds express the one God, the one Life and the Truth. Differences, variations and discrepancies are of no importance. God in me is the only Reality, and all men are my brothers living with me in the Kingdom of Good. All life in all forms is God in action. There is nothing too simple to express Beauty, and nothing too great to express pure Wisdom. God appears to me in all things and through all people.
My thinking is now determined by the one Mind. God’s thoughts being premised upon good sustain my every creative action. Evil disappears from my experience, for there is nothing but the good to contemplate. The Holy Spirit of pure Truth abides in me and uses me as Its distributing center. I am free to demonstrate what I want, for the One Mind delivers to me the full results of my own concepts. I affirm the good, the true and the perfect. I affirm one Cause, one Source and one Mind. Absolute peace indwells me, and Love creates through me the desires of my heart.
