I AM DIVINELY OPTIMISTIC
But the eyes of the wicked shall fail, and they shall not escape, and their hope shall be as the giving up of the ghost.
Good is even more possible than evil, for it is God, while evil is only a temporary, false appearance. The hopeful have always managed to lift the world a bit and to bless their fellowman. With their eyes upon good, they have walked forward on a pathway of blessings. I now join with all who have placed God at the center of their lives and who know that Truth alone is real. I clasp hands with the men and women who have proven the power and the presence of God.
Before me lies an eternal possibility which awaits my exploration. It bids me come to its gates and enter in to partake of its immeasurable good. Even though my world tells me that much is impossible, I still declare my possibility in God. I know that nothing can be withheld from me, if my consciousness is clear and positive. The good I seek is seeking me. The pathway I walk is always forward. If any man cannot walk forward with me, then I loose him with a blessing, but I press on to my good. My footsteps are not deterred by people, places or situations. God walks by means of me, and to His forward action there is no impediment.
My future is dependent upon my conscious awareness of Infinite Mind. The fears of the world and of the people who have not yet awakened to Truth have no power over me. I alone determine what next year shall bring. As I am established in good, each year shall improve my consciousness, and bring greater joy to me. Nothing can prevent my progress, for God is with me, and the power of God acts through me with wisdom. I am divinely optimistic.
