June 19, 2022 – I NO LONGER INDULGE IN NEGATIVES 

JUNE 19    

I NO LONGER INDULGE IN NEGATIVES   

“We lie open on one side to the deeps of spiritual nature, to the attributes of God.  Justice we see and know, Love, Freedom, Power.”   Emerson

The spirit of the Lord is within me, and I am resolved to live positively.  The Bible states that man is the image of a perfect God.  Therefore, I must have the potential of perfection, and this perfection must be positive. I now align myself with the positive side of life.  It is divinely natural to be positive, optimistic and expectant of good.  These are the bases of all healing, for they are the way God works through me.  If God is my life, then I should express health.  If God is my supply, then I should express abundance and freedom in finance.  I have faith that these ideas are true, and that they now act for me.

No one causes me to worry, nothing causes me to fear.  All evil is wrong self-indulgence.  As an individualized center of Divine Operation, I can no longer afford the luxury of fear and worry.  I refuse to pay their price, for God’s free faith is mine to use without cost.  It offers Itself to me without stint, and I accept it with joy.  I know that my right thinking controls my destiny.  I know that the key to all experience is in my own consciousness.  I set my thinking on the Truth and I do not waiver for a single moment.  I am steadfast in my loyalty to Him who made me of Himself. 

God loves the positive person, for then all of Mind has a free outlet for Its Ideas.  Knowing this, I become the person God loves, and all right action uses me as a center of distribution.  To me comes the Holy Purpose, and from me flows the healing power.  I heal myself and others.  I think health, act as health, and speak health at all times.  I am no longer sick, tired or worn out.  God in me is positive life, health and vitality.  I radiate the positive.  I rejoice in the power of right thinking.  My whole experience is now changed into greater good, and my thinking expands it forevermore.  I dedicate my mind to His, and I rejoice in positive results.

June 18, 2022 – LET HEAVEN HAPPEN TO ME TODAY

JUNE 18        

LET HEAVEN HAPPEN TO ME TODAY   

“From within or behind, a light shines through us upon things and makes us aware that we are nothing, but the light is all.”  Emerson

Within me now is the Light of Life, and I let It reveal Its perfect nature in all that I do.  I am willing to step aside from all petty thinking and place God first and foremost in my experience today.  I know that more Good is seeking to express through me than I can ever know.  All that the Father-Mind has is within me offering Itself to me.  Peace is in my environment, prosperity is in my finances and health rules my body, as I let God dominate my consciousness.  It is a great relief to know that I need not work, but merely know truth and let it happen to me.

The allness of Spirit includes me and all my world of affairs.   Heaven is my natural setting, and I appreciate its generosity of beauty, harmony and order.  I give God the freedom to be in me what His Mind has chosen to be.  Out of the Infinite comes all the good I want and need, and it appears now at this time in my life.  Through me shines the Glory of God and from me flows the Beauty of the Spirit.  As I grant full authority to Divine Mind, I can rest from all labor and watch my affairs operate with ease.  I have peace in my soul, rest in my body and joy in my world.

It is a great relief to know that people, things and situations are not dependent upon me but upon God.  I withdraw all claims of personal achievement and give all honor and all glory to Christ in me who doeth all the true work.  The universe is Divinely operated, and all my personal affairs are a part of this Divine Action.  Therefore, they are now governed by Intelligence, motivated by Love and they prosper.  Heaven is mine today.  Joyously I greet all men as brothers, for we are all one in the Kingdom. One God, one fellowship of man, one universal order, and one heaven in the present.  Greater good than this I cannot know, for I am one with my Father.

June 17, 2022 – I FIND THE ONE IN THE ALL 

JUNE 17   

I FIND THE ONE IN THE ALL   

“We live in succession, in division, in parts, in particles.  Meantime within man is the soul of the whole; the wise silence; the universal beauty, to which every part and particle is equally related; the eternal One.”  Emerson

I have faith in one God, one action of Love, and one Life that is in all and through all.  God must be one – for my life bears witness of a unity of creative action, that I, alone, can upset.  This eternal One Mind acting through one Law is never confused by the stupidity of man.  It remains forever poised in Its own self-knowing, and this is the Rock of Ages to which I can always turn when my own thinking has led me astray.  I am never alone, never forsaken by the Truth.  Its patience is forever, and as I return to Its premise It welcomes me and gives me all that It is.

Details can no longer exhaust me, and my variety of duties shall no more disturb me, in all that I have to do there is a single Power and a single Mind operating, and It directs my ways and makes light my burdens.  I arise out of the many and find rest in the One.  I now accomplish all that needs to be done, with inner peace and poise.  No longer distracted, I work with ease.  Life is a pattern of wholeness, and all details fall into their right place and are completed with ease.  I am overshadowed by Wisdom and embraced by Love.  It is good to know this and to feel the One Divine Presence.

I now am able to find the Beauty of the Spirit in all things.  The commonplace becomes the threshold of God, and every minute action glows with the harmony of the Spirit.  Nothing I do is too menial, for God greets me in every action, and Peace enfolds me as I work.  All false pride is swallowed up in the victorious attitude of God’s work in me, through me, and by means of me.  I am the vehicle of the Truth, and I am worthy of the Divine trust.  I dedicate this day to the Allness of God.  I perceive His face in every face I see.  I do His work in every job.  I glorify my Father by living as His Son. 

June 16, 2022 – IMPORTANCE IS THE ORDER OF THIS DAY

JUNE 16   

IMPORTANCE IS THE ORDER OF THIS DAY   

“Every moment when the individual feels himself invaded by it (Truth) is memorable.  By the necessity of our constitution a certain enthusiasm attends the individual’s consciousness of that divine presence.”  Emerson

Each day is the new order offering itself to man.  In the Divine Plan, all yesterdays are canceled and all tomorrows are speculation.  This is the day the Lord hath made, and I accept its importance.  None of my affairs are under the verdict of yesterday.  Health, peace and abundance are dependent only on this day.  Mind negates the past and affirms the present. God’s Ideas vitalize and create new vistas of demonstration.  I realize the value of this day, and refuse to allow it to be dominated by the past or by the future.  My God is of the present, and His Ideas rule me at this moment.

I am invaded by Truth, and I welcome its rules in my thinking.  No false reports can register their misconceptions in my mind, for God alone thinks in me and God has righteous judgment.  The invasion of Truth is welcomed by me, for then I can let go of my own false sense of responsibility.  I turn over the affairs of today to a Mind which knows exactly what to do.  All my questions are answered by my inner Intelligence.  All my fears are dissolved by my inner Love.  I lift my thought to the One Mind in the calm assurance that no mistake can ever be made.  God governs me now.

All things are important, for all things bear witness of the Idea which created them.  I look at the details of my experience and find the Divine facing me.  God looks at me through every situation, every person, and every feeling.  Omnipresent Love enfolds me and Omniscience is mine, I value the inspiration that infiltrates my consciousness, for it is God bidding me to do the right and loving thing.  I prosper as I let the larger Mind and the greater Intelligence dominate me.  God is always a welcome guest in the home of my thinking.  I bid His Ideas come and live with me.  Today is the most important day I have ever lived, and I prosper in it. 

June 15, 2022 – DIVINE IDEAS COME TO ME AT EVERY MOMENT 

JUNE 15   

DIVINE IDEAS COME TO ME AT EVERY MOMENT   

“The soul’s communication of truth is the highest event in nature, since it then does not give somewhat from itself, but it gives itself, and becomes that man whom it enlightens.”    Emerson

I accept the responsibility of being alive in God’s great universe.  Truth seeks to give Itself to me, and I open my mind to It.  I let down all the bars; I unlock all the gates of human wrong thinking.  I expect to have my consciousness flooded with inspiration as the Infinite Mind uses me as Its channel for expression.  I allow the Divine to enter and absorb me, I become the Divine incarnate.  This is what Jesus knew, and now I know it. He sensed his responsibility to so think, act and be that God would find no closed doors in his mind.  I shall do likewise.

I am the living expression of all that God is.  I am not a body using a mind – I am Spirit in complete authority over my world.  I am a receiver of Divine Inspiration, and a communicator of Divine Love.  The potential of a perfect life is given to me to use, and I develop it in fullness.  I am not hindered by myself, for no longer do I claim material infallibility.  I know that my senses may deceive me, my world may wrongly influence me, and only my own thinking determines my experience.  I give myself to the Truth, and the Truth sets me free from all previous wrong conclusions.

The One Mind is the source of my life.  Ideas are the beginning and end of demonstrations.  I see myself as a mental being in a universe of mind-action.  I declare the Truth and the Truth becomes my experience.  I receive and affirm God’s Ideas and they bless and prosper me.  My health is perfect because His Mind is perfect.  My affairs are in order, because Order is the way God works.  Prosperity cannot pass me by, for His ideas in action through me guarantee my abundance.  Every instant of this day is potent with God, and His unfailing inspiration is mine, and I accept it.

June 14, 2022 – ALL LIFE IMPELS ME TO RIGHT ACTION  

JUNE 14   

ALL LIFE IMPELS ME TO RIGHT ACTION   

“For the Maker of all things and all persons stands behind us and casts his dread omniscience through us over all things.”  Emerson

It is time that I definitely improve my life.  I have lingered too long with half-truths and alibis.  I am willing to face myself squarely and honestly.  Without true inspiration, I have made many mistakes, and I am weary of the hard work that my material thinking has caused me.  The Wisdom of the Infinite that is available to me is actually within me, and I now let It guide me into perfect ways.  I start an improvement program based on Spiritual Inspiration.  The universe is planned for everyone’s success, and I now expect mine.  God is backing me up, and there is no power to prevent my demonstration.

The One Mind acting in me is my source of ideas.  Divine Thinking impels me to right action and right decision.  He who created me abides in me and directs me.  From this inner point of true control and true direction, I look out at my problems and see their immediate solution.  I refuse to believe that I am blocked, delayed or frustrated.  God is all power, all wisdom and all action.  All of God is with me, and all of God is for me.  Knowing this, I cannot fail.  I rejoice in this new-found freedom of letting God do the work.  I rest in the Divine Action of the Law of Good.

Improvements appears on every hand, and I see a new day dawning.  The night of fear has passed, and the Light of God defines my pathway.  I anticipate this day to be a good one, and tomorrow to be even better.  I glory in my newly discovered abilities.  I appreciate every good impulse that the Divine mind delivers to me.  I hold my consciousness open to guidance.  In complete confidence I face each task and all impatience deserts me.  I find love and cooperation in all people, and I offer them only harmony and affection.  Heaven is where I am, and I enjoy Its perfect peace.  I accomplish all that I need to do with ease, for God indwells me as Mind.

June 08, 2022 – MY GOD INDWELLS ME AS MIND AND LOVE 

JUNE 8   

MY GOD INDWELLS ME AS MIND AND LOVE   

“The nameless Thought, the nameless Power, the super-personal Heart, – he shall repose alone on that.  He needs only his own verdict.  No good fame can help him; no bad fame can hurt him.”  Emerson

There is but one infinite Mind, and It indwells me this day as the source of all life, all knowledge and all possible good.  This Mind is also Love.  It is a complete unity of all that ever has been, ever will be.  I know myself as Its vehicle of operation, and It acts without hindrance through me.  Not to the outer world do I look for help, but to the inner Source I turn for the full supply of every need.  In this inner consciousness of security I am no longer impressed by material fears.  All manner of evil may appear to assail me in my hectic world, but the peace within bids me to believe it not.

Divine Love maintains the calm of my being.  It disciplines and balances my emotions.  Anger and hysterics are impossible to experience, for within me there is nothing to cause them nor react to them.  I face my world poised and at peace. I face the arguments of my fellowman with the clear understanding that they will not twist my judgment nor lead me to wrong conclusions.  God’s Mind is the only basis of my decisions, and thus all my affairs must prosper.  With love and intelligence as the foundation of my thinking, I do all things with ease and with efficiency.  God’s action in me is wonderful.

I am independent of fame and slander.  I am a Spiritual Being in a Spiritual Universe and only my estimate of myself is true.  Others may proclaim my faults, outline my mistakes, and declare my weaknesses.  Not one word of these is true.  God in the midst of me cannot see evil, hear evil or speak evil about me not anyone else.  Only that which is true of the Spirit is true of me.  I know my Spiritual worth.  I affirm my thought as the Divine Thought, and my heart as being of Him whose Heart is the heart of all.  I am untouched by human opinions, and I offer none.  God indwells me today as Mind and Love.

June 07, 2022 – I RELY ON GOD ALONE TO MEET EVERY SITUATION   

JUNE 7   

I RELY ON GOD ALONE TO MEET EVERY SITUATION   

“Instead of that reliance which the soul suggests, on the eternity of truth and duty, men are misled into a reliance on institutions, which the moment they cease to be the instantaneous creations of the devout sentiment are worthless.”    Emerson

I face my world with a courage born of my knowledge of God.  I am never alone, never deserted and never without aid.  My reliance is on Him who brought me forth to express His life divine.  Indwelling me, there is a center of Mind and Love, where Power awaits my recognition.  From this inner Christ I draw greatly on God.  The inexhaustible action of Divine Mind is the power of my thinking, and I have the courage to do all things.  Directed from within, I see the falsity of external authority.  God in the midst of me is my Power and my Deliverance from all that would beset me.

Steadfastly knowing my inner strength, I am no longer appalled at what I need to meet.  Challenges change to opportunities; problems to possibilities.  Urged forward by Divine Truth, I proceed into correct action and bring forth right solutions.  I am no longer the victim of verdicts, whether they be medical, economic, age, social or financial.  I have but one Divine Verdict upon me – God declares forevermore that I am His eternal Son.  That alone is true of me, and knowing this I have no fear.  His whole Mind and Love are mine to use for right activities, and I use them with ease.

As there is no power opposed to omnipotent Mind, there is no power opposed to me as Its beloved outlet.  I now erase all opposition within my own thought, and am a free and open channel for Omnipotence.  I face all things with faith, cheer and the expectancy of good.  I am a spiritual optimist, for I know that with God’s help everything works together for good.  My life is now a victorious one, and problems dissolve as I think the Truth.  Today is filled with victory.
