I HAVE TRUE UNDERSTANDING
Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom: and with all thy getting get understanding. Proverbs 4:7
As all Scriptures tell us, true spiritual understanding comes from a perception of the Divine Unity back of all things. Knowledge is of the intellect; wisdom and understanding are of the heart. Those who have had true spiritual understanding have always taught us of the unity of good; that we are one in essence with the Spirit. They have told us that the unreal never has been; that the Real never has ceased to be.
“I will not leave thee nor forsake thee.” Our divine nature never deserts us. Like the prodigal son, we may wander into far countries of despair, but the Divinity within us ever gently urges us back to the center of our true being; It ever reminds us if its presence.
Today I permit my spiritual understanding to penetrate everything which seems opposed to good. Back of all variety, I perceive the One Cause, the One Presence, the One Purpose. Today I align myself with this Divine Presence that runs through everything. I open the gates of my consciousness with enthusiasm and through recognition and acknowledgment, permit the Spirit of Wholeness, the Spirit of Oneness, to flow through me. I know there is one God, one Spiritual Man, one perfect Law, and one eternal Life.
