dec-7-2015Humanity is Divinity made visible.  We are good people in the sight of our Creator.  Knowing this, I see my neighbor as a part of the Divine Plan for all.  His ideas may not be mine, but they are right for him.  I may not agree with the outer man, but I must agree with the inner one.  In him is the Spirit of Truth, the need for self-expression and the vision of what he can become.  This I respect, and this I value.  I no longer try to make him in my image and likeness.  I now realize that his individuality is of God, and I adjust my thinking to this bridge of human opinions and embrace him as a Son of God.

There is a goodness in my fellowman that needs my recognition.  He is hungry for someone to see him as he really is.  He needs my spiritual perception of his innate kindliness and I now look for every slight indication of God in man and praise it.  In the midst of him is the Spirit, and I now see its many modes of expression.  I appreciate and bless everyone I know.  Family, friends and co-workers are God’s means of peopling my world with love.  No more need to be on guard, I lovingly and joyously accept every person as God made manifest.  No one can harm me; no one can take from me any good. Others make me whole and loving.  God in me reaches out to the highest and best in everyone I know.  Friendship and understanding await me in my home, my place of business and the neighborhood where I live.

People bless me, for they give me so much that I need.  The hand of God is in every hand I clasp. I now see a beauty and a wholeness in everyone I know.  No mistakes, no injuries, no more suspicions.  I let God run his universe, and I let His Law take care of all whom I know.  I expect the best from my friends.  I live in a friendly world, and all people are essentially good.  There is Light born of God within all people, and I expect this Light to bless and benefit me.  Today I release all human judgments.  I behold the Christ in man.  God is in me, so he is also in everyone I meet.
