I AM AT HOME IN THE UNIVERSE WHEREVER I MAY BE, ONE WITH GOD, ONE WITH PEOPLE, ONE WITH THAT ABIDING FAITH THAT KNOWS NO FEAR
And all things that are mine are thine, and thine are mine, and I am glorified in them. John 17:10 (E.R.V)
This meditation is an all-inclusive prayer because it includes ourselves and others. It is truly doing unto others what we would they should do unto us and establishes a unity between ourselves and those around us, a feeling that we all are some part of the Kingdom of Good. This all-inclusive prayer, then, is one which expands our consciousness of the True Self and at the same times blesses those around us.
Believing that there is a Divine Presence closer to me than my very breath, and realizing that I live in the one perfect Spirit, and knowing that the God around and the God within me is one God, I say: My Father, which art in heaven within me, hallowed be Thy name. Thy Kingdom is come now, and I accept it. Looking about me, I say to all people: Your Father, which is in your heaven within you, hallowed be His name, for you are one with Him forever more. There is one Life, that Life is God, that Life is your life now – and that Life is perfect.
Looking upon the circumstances which surround me, I bless them even as Jesus blessed the bread and broke it, and even as the loaves and fishes multiplied in the outstretched and upturned hand of his love, so I know that everything in my experience that is good is multiplied and increased. Even as I feel the increase pressing into my own experience, I give it out, with no thought of return that it may feed and bless and multiply the good of others, these others who are some part of me because God is in them and in me, and we are in each other.
