Jun 20 2015“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 that 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.
