I LIVE IN THE LIFE OF GOD
…as the Father hath life in himself, so hath he given to the Son to have life in himself. John 5:26
All life is One Life. Just as every physical substance known derives from one universal energy, so there is but one Life Principle, which is God, in which we all live from which infinite Source our individual lives are drawn. If this one Life is present everywhere, It is also within us. To say that the Life of God is the only life there is, means that my life is not only in God and of God and from God – it is God, in and through me. If this were not true I would have a life separate from God, which is unthinkable and impossible. But if it is true that the Life of God is my life now, how wrongly I must have been thinking about this life. I have judged it falsely and condemned it unnecessarily and in every way, shape and manner, in my ignorance, have denied the very thing I should be affirming.
There is one Life, that Life is God, that Life is my life now. In Him I live and move and have my being, and He lives in me and moves through me. I deny, then, that there is any life separate from Good, and I affirm that every organ, action and function of my physical body is animated by the Divine Life which created and sustains it. It is this Life that is circulating through me now, in happiness, in harmony and with perfect rhythm. I am one with the Whole, therefore I say to my mind: “You are to live and think and feel this truth until it is spontaneous and natural. And when you say, ‘God is my life,’ you are to know that the entire life of the Divine and Perfect presence is now flowing through you.” I affirm this today – the Life of God is the only life there is; that Life is my life now, complete and perfect.
