I AM HAPPY IN THE HARMONY OF GOD
Now there are diversities of gifts, but the same Spirit… And there are diversities of operation, but it is the same God which worketh all in all.
I Corinthians 12: 4, 6
We do not all have the same gifts because no two people are ever alike. Nature never reproduces anything identically. And there are diversities of operations. We are all engaged in different types and sorts of activities which express the unique individualization which each one of us is. But it is the same God working in all of us. This is one of the most terrific concepts we could entertain – that out of all the variations of life, the infinite variety of color and form and people – the rosebud, the elephant, the snow-capped mountain, the tiny mouse in the field – one Power is working in and through us now, not as big or little, or hard or easy, but merely as spontaneous self-expression. Back of our smallest act is the strength of the universe. Behind all our thoughts is the Infinite Thinker. Diffused through every human activity is the Divine Presence.
Today I am realizing that all my thoughts are formulated in the Divine Mind; all my actions are sustained by the Infinite Energy; all the Power there is and all the Presence there is, is right where I am. Therefore I open the channels of my thought to the influx of this Divine Presence which is now doing something unique and different through me. I feel the impact of this Presence in my own mind. I sense Its feeling and imagination in my own thinking. I see It operating through all my actions. And since there is no big nor little, everything becomes important because everything is the self-expression of That within me which doeth all things well. Therefore I surrender myself completely to that one Power that one All-knowing Mind, that one Presence, which is beauty and love and peace and joy.
