THE SPIRIT GOES BEFORE ME
Good is at the root of everything, regardless of its seeming absence. But this good must be recognized. Since there is but one Spirit and this Spirit is in you and in everything, then everywhere you go you will meet this Spirit. You meet this Spirit in people, in places and in things. The one Spirit, which manifests Itself in and through all, including yourself, automatically adjusts parts to the whole. Therefore, you may accept with positive certainty that the Spirit within you does go before you and prepares your way. Your faith is placed in something positive, certain as the laws of life, exact as the principle of mathematics, ever present like the ethers of space, ever operating like the laws of nature. Say:
I know that the Spirit within me goes before me, making perfect, plain, straight, easy and happy the pathway of my experience.
There is nothing in me that can obstruct the Divine circuits of Life, of Love, of Beauty and Truth.
My word dissolves every negative thought or impulse that would throw a shadow of unbelief across the threshold of my expectation.
I lift my cup of acceptance, knowing that the Divine outpouring will fill it to the brim.
I identify myself with the Living Spirit – with all the power, all the presence and all the life there is.
