I CONTROL MY THOUGHT
Thou art of purer eyes than to behold evil, and canst not look on iniquity.
Free will does not mean that wrong thinking is justifiable. Infinite Mind created man a free soul in order that man might experiment with varying combinations of right ideas. I am free to think in all possible ways about the good, the true and the perfect. There are endless possibilities of right thinking and of right action. I now assume dominion of my mind and emotions, and dedicate them to positive goals. I enjoy the infinite variety of Divine ideas, and I contemplate their possibilities of making me a new creature expressing spiritual discernment.
My faith in God is so great that I have no faith in evil. I cannot conceive of evil’s power, for I know that God alone is power and is presence. Life to me is an affirmative action of thought. I think affirmatively this day, knowing that good is created, maintained and extended by so doing. I drink of the living water of spiritual Truth, and am never thirsty for error again. I eat of the heavenly manna of God’s Ideas, and never again hunger for old experiences. I look forward with my mind and create good ahead of me. I do this deliberately, for my future will be the result of my thinking today.
God’s thoughts are now my thoughts, and good appears instantly wherever I look. Thinking rightly of God and of man is a joyous and easy accomplishment. My mind is centered in heaven and good is established in my earth. Ideas of good appear in my consciousness continuously, and I give them free action through me. I am in full control of my own destiny, and I now create good alone. Recognizing only the one true Source of my thinking, I experience only the one possible effect in my experience – the effect of good. Controlled, poised and sure, I see God everywhere as I think His thoughts with Him.
