THE SPIRIT WITHIN ME COMMUNES WITH EVERYONE AND EVERYTHING
… thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind … and … thy neighbor as thy self. Mark 12: 30, 31
When we let the love that is within us go out to the God who is in all people and the Divine Presence that is in all things, then we are loving God with all our heart and with all our soul and mind because we are recognizing that the Spirit within us is the same Spirit that we meet in others. This is loving our neighbors as ourselves.
The love that within me goes out to the God who is within all people. I recognize the Divine Presence everywhere. I love and adore this Presence. I know that it responds to me. I know that there is a Law of Good, a Law of Love, forever giving of Itself to me. This Divine and Perfect Law is circulating through me now. Its rhythm is in my heartbeat; Its perfection is in every organ, action and function of my physical body. Love and perfect Life circulate through everything. This Love and this Life I accept as the truth about myself, now and forever.
This same Love, this same Presence, this same Law of Good, I recognize in others. It is a Divine Presence, a Holy Presence, and a Prefect Presence. It is a Law that heals and makes whole, that prospers and makes happy. This is the law of my life. This is the good that I meet everywhere. I know that the only Power there is and the only Presence there is, is Love, the living Spirit Almighty. There is no condemnation, no judgment and no fear in me. I feel that I belong to the world in which I live. I love people and am loved by them. I have a deep sense of confidence and trust. I feel that I am secure in life and that I need not be anxious about anything.
