Jun 20, 2024 – I AM A GROWING MIND IN AN UNLIMITED GOD 

JUNE 20   

I AM A GROWING MIND IN AN UNLIMITED GOD   

“The life of man is a self-evolving circle, which from a ring imperceptibly small, rushes on all sides outward to new and larger circles, and without end.” 

Emerson

I decide to grow in wisdom and in understanding.  I decide to give up the half-truth and base my whole life upon the One Truth which forever imparts Itself to me.  No more good and evil, no more right and wrong.  God alone is good and Truth alone is right. I refuse to stagnate at any intellectual level of knowledge, for all true wisdom comes from growth with understanding. What I now know is merely the doorstep to what I shall know.  Greater ideas of God come to me each moment, and these cause me to walk forward with consistent enlargement of consciousness.  I thank God that I can grow in His ways.

The seed falls into the ground and dies in order that the plant may appear.  I let every area of my subconscious become the soil of a larger life.  I declare that every idea I now have shall die that greater ideas shall appear and thereby make me a greater expression of life.  I refuse to stay as I am, and I refuse to live by past thinking.  The doorway of the future opens to me only in so far as I let new thoughts govern me today.  Tomorrow will be what I am thinking and feeling today. Knowing this, I now receive from the indwelling Spirit those Ideas which will improve me.

I am receptive to growth.  I desire more good than I have, and I know that Spirit through me will provide it.  I acknowledge but one source for my present and future good – the Mind of God.  I am an evolving, growing expression of a limitless Principle and an ever unfolding Love.  I grow out of all ignorance into all truth.  I evolve out of all pettiness into all tolerance.  I emerge from disease into permanent health.  Whatever needs to be done to make me a greater instrument of Divine Life and Love is now being done in me.  I let all changes necessary to growth take place.  I love to see the old patterns dissolve and the new ones appear.  I thoroughly enjoy growing in grace and in Truth.

Jun. 19, 2024 – 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.

Jun. 18, 2024 – 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.

Jun. 17, 2024 – 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.

Jun. 16, 2024 – 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.

Jun. 22, 2024 – MY RELIGION IS OF TODAY’S GOD

JUNE 22   

MY RELIGION IS OF TODAY’S GOD

“As soon as every man is apprised of the Divine Presence within his own mind, – is apprised that the perfect law of duty corresponds with the laws of chemistry, vegetation, astronomy, as face to face in a glass; then we have a religion that exalts, that commands all the social and all the private action.”

 Emerson

The world of today is my world, and the Cause of it I consider in today’s language.  I see my world as the operation of an Intelligence which must be Mind, a Power which must bear witness of Divine Love.  While I respect the beliefs of the past, yet I must seek my God today.  I can accept a perfect Mind, an unalterable Law and an interpenetration of Love.  This is understandable to me, and workable by me.  I believe myself to be of Divine Importance.  I believe that He who brought me forth indwells me and acts through me.  God in me is my reason for being.

Indwelling me is a center of Divine Action.  Omnipresence personalizes Itself in me, and I am Its distributing center.  I live under a Law of Mind action, and into that Law I place the cause of things I desire.  God wants me to have what I want to have, and the Law produces my good for me, as and when I want it.  Being a law, It cannot oppose me, but must obey my will.  This is the hope of my being; this is my cause for rejoicing.  I live in a universe that fulfills my every positive desire, when I definitely state this desire into the Law of mind.  Greater good could no generation have.

My God gives me my freedom for all experience.  Good can be mine, and evil can be mine.  I, alone decide the picture and I, alone, experience the result.  I live in a Perfect Mind which knows me as Its perfect image and likeness.  I now choose to have a heavenly experience, and the Law now creates it for me.  I love to live the life of freedom in a God which ordains good for me.  Health, peace and prosperity belong to me, and they now function in me and around me, because I have accepted the Divine Gift.  I respect the God of all men, but I know One Mind, One Presence and One Power as the Truth today.

Jun. 15, 2024 -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.

Jun. 14, 2-24 – 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.

Jun 13, 2024 – I NO LONGER INTERFERE WITH THE HIGHER MIND

JUNE 13   

I NO LONGER INTERFERE WITH THE HIGHER MIND

“We are wiser than we know.  If we will not interfere with our thought but will act entirely, or see how the thing stands in God, we know the particular thing, and every thing, and every man.” 

Emerson

I have faith that the Mind of God not only created this universe and man, but also forever maintains Its creation within Its own bosom, nurturing and furthering the perfect Plan and the Divine Concept.  The Divine forever knows what to do and is forever doing it.  Being all in all, It is never conditioned, never inhibited and never limited. I am the outlet of all that Mind is, and I am always in the Presence and always using the Power of God.  I cannot escape my divinity, try as I may.  I cannot be a failure, for God will always win out in the long run.  God uses me as His channel for good.

My best planned ideas will fail me if they are founded upon selfish principles.  Each time I work for my personal gain and disregard others, I am interfering with Divine Action, and I merely punish myself.  The Divine Order and law will always prevail, despite my human will.  I cannot change God, but I can change myself.  I now cease all interference with the Divine Plan of my life.  I stop deciding long-range plans for the future.  I accept the fact that I am wiser than I know.  I am wise enough to let Life unfold in Its own way and for Its own purposes.

I respect my world, for in it I see the action of God taking place.  I respect my fellowman for he was not made by himself, but God created him for a purpose.  I respect myself and my own abilities, recognizing the Divine within that seeks to make me greater than I am at the moment.  My consciousness turns with confidence to God, and His Ideas appear in me in perfect order and on time.  Letting the Infinite Mind have Its full sway in my thinking makes life easy and right.  I can never falter nor fail, for I am governed by Mind and by Mind alone.  Divine Ideas impel me forward today, and I rejoice in my many demonstrations.

Jun 12, 2024 – I ENTHUSIASTICALLY SPREAD THE TRUTH

JUNE 12     

I ENTHUSIASTICALLY SPREAD THE TRUTH   

“Nothing great was ever achieved without enthusiasm.  The way of life is wonderful; it is by abandonment.” 

Emerson

The concept of my omnipresent God is too wonderful to keep to myself alone.  I spread my larger understanding of God abroad to all who will listen.  I am enthusiastic about Life as God in action.  Having given myself to the Infinite Presence, the Infinite Mind and the Infinite Love, I can shout from the housetops the value of this new way of life.  Gone are the fears, the terrors and the blasted hopes.  To me there has come the joyous abandonment to Him who knows what to do and how to do it.  I have never been so free, and never been as happy.

All men should know the Truth and be freed from their own misconceptions.  I accept the challenge to so live that all who contact me shall find their freedom, their health and their prosperity.  My light shall so shine that all men seeing my good works shall glorify my Father in heaven.  My enthusiasm for God is catching.  Others see the light in my face and seek the same enlarged consciousness of Good.  As they seek, they find, and in their finding pass on the same Light to others.  I am starting a chain of truth-minded people which shall encircle the globe and heal the nations.

The mantle of the Christ is upon my shoulders.  The sword of Truth is in my hands.  The breastplate of righteousness protects me from all evil.  I show forth the glory of my inner Christ, and whoever thinks of me receives a benediction of illumination.  The whole Spirit of God is in full action through me, and I have courage to do the right and loving thing at all times and under all circumstances.  His Mind is mine; His Love beats in my heart.  The contagion of true holiness is tremendous.  I share my God with my world.
