“[The] healing power of Truth…lives through all Life, and extends throughout all space.” (Science and Health, page 146)

Truth is a living thing. It is alive with goodness and power and active with God’s eternal intention. This Truth pulses with an energy that is greater than matter and material beliefs about life and reality. This Truth is the living Love that is both the substance and the purpose of God’s creation.

And God’s Truth naturally brings healing. It perpetually announces divine Law and lovingly reminds us what is real and truly ours to claim and to celebrate. It comes through the Christ-message—that revelation to humanity that we are God’s own ideas and that we are spiritual, immortal, and loved with an everlasting love.

There is no place where this potent activity of Truth is not available and at work. It is not lost in space or to seemingly closed or troubled minds. It is the very Life that is living in each one of us and in everything that God saw fit to make. The healing power of this Truth is found in that wonderful awareness that the divine ideal is right here where the human need seems to be, meeting it with established authority and with the tender certainty of Love.

“I will gather all nations and peoples together and they will see my glory.” (Isaiah 66:18, New Living Bible)

Let the gathering begin! Let’s rejoice that God is All-in-all, and that His purpose is a divine demand. God is Truth and Love. It is His intention that we know His nature and see just how mighty, glorious, beautiful, and right He is.

And so God brings us together to witness Him—to come as One to know His glory, the Truth of Life as Love. Let’s allow ourselves to be gathered. Let’s trust that division is not God’s action and so it cannot win, cannot be productive or constructive or progressive. The only way to know God—the glorious Truth of peace and Love and harmony that is His very Being—is to yield to Oneness, to His intention and commandment, and to the reality of His creation.

It may feel that we are so far from this gathering together for the glory of God, but we can’t be deceived by appearances. Divisiveness and discord humbles us to the sweet and saving presence and power of Love. For this Love alone feels right and healing. A house divided cannot stand, but even when it seems to fall, there is divine Love, undivided, reminding us of who we really are and uniting us anew in the name and the glory of Love.

“Be cheerful. Keep things in good repair. Keep your spirits up. Think in harmony. Be agreeable. Do all that, and the God of love and peace will be with you for sure.” (II Corinthians 13: 11, the Message Bible)

What a sweet and powerful to-do list! If we look to these wise suggestions for our daily lives, we will find ourselves in a happy place. We will become aware of the presence of love and peace, of God with us.

Being cheerful isn’t always easy, but I know that whenever I can turn from self-pity to humor or from a dreary outlook to a more hopeful approach, I feel better. I am open to grace and inspiration and healing. We can be good-humored without being false about it. We can keep our spirits up by remembering that God is governing and that there is always much for which to be grateful and expectant.

Keeping things in good repair can mean many things. I think of it not only as making sure our homes and our possessions are orderly and functional, but also that we keep good relations with others, smooth over what we can, forgive, keep peace. It also means a self-awareness that looks for healing within, a clearing away of the old, the broken sense of ourselves, and discovering who we really are—innocent, undamaged, with unlimited potential for good.

Think in harmony. This isn’t about agreeing with ever human opinion. What it is about is remembering God’s Oneness, that we are all a part of one creation, with God, Love, as Cause. It is looking consciously for common ground and listening to others and to God’s unifying word, rather than focusing on differences.

These steps include so much more than what is shared here, and yet they also are simple, natural to us, and a way to heaven—knowing God’s love and peace for us right here on earth.

Daily Inspiration, February 14th

universallove

“Human affection is not poured forth vainly, even though it meet no return. Love enriches the nature, enlarging, purifying, and elevating it.”  (Science and Health, page 57)

The love that we feel in our hearts and share in our lives, is never in vain. It may seem that at times we give this rich affection naturally and yet it is not acknowledged, not humanly returned. We may feel that our love is even spurned or trod upon by another.

But this perception of things doesn’t change the fact of Love. Love in action, with a pure motive behind it, is always a great thing. It does have an impact on others, whether or not that comes to us clearly in the way that we expect. Love is God’s nature moving within us and expressed by us. And God is power, salvation, goodness, peace.

As we love, without focusing on need (it’s kind of hard to do, isn’t it?), we can find that sweet awareness of Love itself and rest in it, feeling its presence, and relishing the fact that Love simply is and that we have it, or we could not feel it and express it. This Love—acknowledged, utilized, explored, realized—is transformative. It continues, by its use, to enrich us, enlarge our reach, and give us purer ideals and a higher perspective.

True Love is going on infinitely and right now, and you express it and are a recipient of it. God’s Love sees you, knows you, adores you, and gives you plenty of that Love to share freely as well!

Happy Valentine’s Day, you beloved lovers!

Daily Inspiration, February 9th

pathwalk

“Individuals are consistent who, watching and praying, can ‘run, and not be weary;…walk, and not faint,’ who gain good rapidly and hold their position, or attain slowly and yield not to discouragement.” (Science and Health, page 254)

Our consistency and growth in good does not follow some formula or timeline of perfect human steps and behavior. We shouldn’t be judging our spiritual understanding or our success in life based on what others may appear to be doing or saying. Our demonstration of the active presence of God is uniquely ours, and that is what makes it so right and honest and powerful.

Our progress is not based on speed. In fact, we don’t want to get ahead of ourselves—ahead of the practical and right instruction that brings us true and lasting light. We are meant to appreciate the journey and enjoy thoroughly each of its guideposts and inspirations, the angels of each new day and each new phase of discovery.

Don’t be discouraged. At times, you may be called to really go, go, go on your walk in Truth. You may feel led to climb quickly and with joy to the top, singing all the way. At other times, you may need to slow down, smell the roses, ponder their beauty, wonder about their thorns, and get closer to God in each quiet moment. This slow walk isn’t ignorance or laziness, if it is impelled by the consistency of a right desire to know God better, and ourselves as His beloved children and heirs of His precious promises.

Enjoy your customized instruction. It is preciously yours and so it is just right!

“Get rid of all bitterness, rage and anger, brawling and slander, along with every form of malice. Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you.” (Ephesians 4: 31-32, New International Version)

We were not made to be full of hate and anger. God did not make us to fight with one another and be unkind. Our loving Father-Mother gave us the Christ—a message of Love and oneness and goodness—because this Truth will set us free.

Answer gratefully this call to compassion and forgiveness. It is the most healthy and natural way to be. We not only honor God when we express His love in our lives, we also settle into our own well-being. God formed us out of His Love and this Love doesn’t hold on to bitterness or thrive on battle and argument. We are most at peace and true to ourselves when we yield to the Lover within us.

Of course, it isn’t always easy to see past others’ misdeeds or accusations. But to forgive is not merely some nice ideal. It is our own salvation, prepared for us. And this compassion, this desire to forgive ignorance (for evil and hate is always truly ignorance, isn’t it?), comes from within our own hearts. It is the Christ-light, showing us who we truly are—the sons and daughters of infinite Love, living in accord with our true nature, making peace, and feeling peaceful ourselves.

generous

“A generous person will prosper; whoever refreshes others will be refreshed.” (Proverbs 11: 25, New International Version)

Look to your own abundance. You have the capacity for genuine and joyous generosity. Your gifts are overflowing. You have God’s qualities resonating within you, always at the ready to be expressed. These are Love’s own attributes, and you have been given them freely, naturally, and permanently.

Draw on your riches and give with enthusiasm! Use that Love that God has given you to comfort, ease, and uplift others. Refresh the world with your own natural radiance and your sincere desire to be a light wherever darkness appears, and a cleansing, renewing spirit to whatever seems burdened and troubled.

This generosity won’t deplete you nor will it leave you without the tender mercy and compassionate care you may need yourself. Be willing to give and willing to receive. Be generous with your trust that others can help and refresh you as well.

And most of all, be generous with your gratitude for God Who is the Source of all the Life and Love there is—the boundless and active and refreshing Spirit that preserves, protects, and renews one and all.

“Spirit, God, gathers unformed thoughts into their proper channels, and unfolds these thoughts, even as He opens the petals of a holy purpose in order that the purpose may appear.” (Science and Health, page 506)

Your goals, your development, your growth, your understanding are all very beautifully governed by the divine Gardener. The multitude of things we want to know or hope to do are not confused or overwhelming or simply elusive. They are controlled very precisely by God, who brings each idea to fruition at just the right time.

God knows His own ideas. He has the blooming garden of our days and of our lives all designed in its full splendor. Each petal of His purpose for us will reveal itself according to what the season requires and what will be most pleasing to us and to others.

We don’t need to know the whole picture. We don’t need to see everything done or get out ahead of our inspired ideas. What we do need to do is trust the seeds God has planted, love their promise, and tend to them with our patient receptivity. Things may feel too big to attain or our vision of things unclear, but we will see the buds form at just the right time, and each aspect will come into view for us at a pace that is comfortable, natural, and still spectacular!

Spirit, God, brings out the best in us and in our lives. Rest in this fact and trust your Father-Mother to show you what you need to know, when you need to know it.  Enjoy the discovery, one flowering, aromatic idea at a time.

boundless-love

“Divine Love is infinite. Therefore all that really exists is in and of God, and manifests His love.” (Science and Health, page 340)

God’s Love is boundless. It proceeds from an infinite Source and continues to flow without interruption or exception. God’s Love is not stalled out by distance, circumstance, ignorance, material obstacles. Time doesn’t influence the perfection and presence and power of this Love.

Why? Because Love is God and God is omnipotent and omnipresent. Love constitutes reality and everything was made to express this Love. Divine Love, being God, fills all space and there is no room or reason for anything else. This Love is self-sustaining harmony; it is the breath of all Life; it is the substance of all that God created and all that exists; it is the holy purpose that endures and cannot be damaged or destroyed.

Let’s look at ourselves, others, and our lives with genuine eyes—those that see and recognize Love and nothing less. For Love is real and powerful. Anything that isn’t Love doesn’t have any real capacity. It only seems to have what our fear or belief might give it. Stay on the side of power. Divine Love is all around and in you. See it. Use it. Love it back, with gratitude and great expectations!

boldlion

“The wicked flee when no man pursueth: but the righteous are bold as a lion.” (Proverbs 28: 1)

Standing with righteousness, as the upright and noble creation of God, we can easily be bold. Through this conscious connection with the divine reality of being—our own natural goodness and kindness and decency—we can be confident in all that we do.

This is not arrogance or human bravado. It is that certainty of the lion, his innate recognition of power and dominion, because of who he is. We can have this same assured state of being as we act in accord with our true nature. Our goodness gives us power that is not pretense, but simply, trust.

On the other hand, those who may agree to evil suggestions or behave at odds with their own higher selfhood, may appear fierce, but they have no power. They don’t have the strength of righteousness to stand on, and so they may run away in times of trouble and even when they are not threatened. The awareness of guilt or wicked intentions can bring out that unnatural paranoia.

But the rock of righteousness is in each one of us. We have the ability to recognize this fact and to confidently, boldly, walk forth and face life without fear. For we know who we are—the very expression of Almighty goodness, Life, and Love.

“Then the Lord said to him, ‘Remove the sandals from your feet, for the place where you are standing is holy ground [worthy of reverence and respect].’” (Acts 7: 33, Amplified Bible)

How wonderful it is to be made aware that right where we are, is holy ground! Just as we are reminded here with God’s words to Moses, this awesome announcement is coming to us today to show us just what a hallowed place we are in.

The recognition of the present and its power for us, is saving and healing. We can mentally remove our sandals—reverence this moment and all it contains for us. For this very moment has God in it, good in it, Love in it, and resonates with opportunity. The ground, this trustworthy foundation of Truth on which you stand, is holy because it is the place where God put us and where He holds us safe and ready for grace.

We can respect this place where we are. We can stop judging and analyzing ourselves and our lives, looking back with regret and forward with fear, and simply stand in grateful awe of this moment. It is full of promise and it is also full of one very special thing—YOU!

You bring a glory to this place with your very presence. Cherish your sweet power and the blessing you bring to Life by being you—God’s own image and beloved!

“The wisdom that comes from God is first utterly pure, then peace-loving, gentle, approachable, full of tolerant thoughts and kindly actions, with no breath of favouritism or hint of hypocrisy. And the wise are peace-makers who go on quietly sowing for a harvest of righteousness—in other people and in themselves.” (James 3: 17-18, J.B. Phillips New Testament)

God’s wisdom includes all that is peaceful and also powerful. His intelligent guidance is kind and good, full of Love and the certainty of Truth. There is nothing in God’s Mind that is ignorant, partial, unclear, confused, or unbalanced. God is perfect Love, divine affection, and incapable of mistake. This Love is not human love to be biased and jealous and fearful.

God’s wisdom is absolutely pure and easy and natural. We can trust it and turn to this Mind to guide us toward what is right for us and for all. Peace is the desired end, and starting with God, it is where we can also gratefully begin.

To be wise is to rely on God to control and care for all. It is to dwell in that natural and necessary peace of mind that is not only pleasant, but powerful in its serene resolve, persistent in Love, and in the pure effectiveness that comes of sincerity. When we trust God’s wisdom, we are led to appreciate what He has given us and to continue cultivating peace for ourselves and for our world as well.

Daily Inspiration, January 12th

calmness

“Our God says, ‘Calm down, and learn that I am God!’” (Psalms 46: 10, Contemporary English Version)

Listen to God. He knows what is right and healing. Take this directive to heart without delay. It is not merely a nice request to chill out. It is God’s own voice telling us how to feel right, happy, and at peace. It is His demand for us to know Him.

Because knowing God means knowing what is true. It means fearless freedom. It means light to the darkness; wholeness instead of brokenness, lack, and loss; love rather than hate, resentment, anger; wisdom and clarity replacing doubts and ignorance and confusion.

Calm down. Consciously still yourself. This stillness is action. It is standing in receptivity and letting Truth dawn on your thought. Fretting and analyzing as well as rushing about pressured about everything, doesn’t allow us to hear and see reality. The blur of the world’s suggestions and mortal thoughts and opinions obscure the very thing that will bring us certainty and peace.

And that is knowing that God is God. It is a recognition that God is Truth to this moment. It is an awareness that He is Love to this moment, Life to this moment, and the very Soul of this moment. This calmness is not inaction. It is yielding. It is letting the sun come up, basking in its warmth and freshness, and receiving and cherishing the light it brings to our lives and to the lives of others as well.

alone-but-happy

“He holds you firmly in place; He will not let you fall. He who keeps you will never take His eyes off you and never drift off to sleep.” (Psalms 121: 3, The Voice Bible translation)

You are safe. You are held in place by God’s law and because of His Love. He has you in His thought at all times, for you are His most precious idea. The place God has made for you is one that you fill beautifully, and it is more than a physical spot. It is your spiritual identity, one which is maintained and sustained eternally.

God won’t let you fall from His care or falter in being who He caused you to be. God made you of His own qualities, crafted in a uniquely inspired way, and you are meant to sparkle and shine forever—to continue as He caused you to be with perfect integrity and the perpetual innocence of newness. You can’t fall out of that ideal, for God, the unfailing Principle, holds you there.

And God’s eyes never drift off to sleep or stray from His attentiveness to His own creation. You will never be neglected or allowed to wander from Life’s true and glorious intention for you. You are always at One with God and never fail to be both the object and evidence of His powerful and tender Love.

abundance-experience

“’Give us this day our daily bread’; Give us grace for to-day; feed the famished affections;” (Science and Health, page 17)

The Lord’s prayer guides us to turn to God for our sustenance. This “daily bread” refers to that right provision for each day, as was the manna supplied each morning in the wilderness for Moses and his followers to feed them. But Jesus knew this bread to be so much more.

The bread of Life to him was the Word of God. It was the inspiration that his Father gave him each day—those pure and right thoughts, the Christ-message of salvation—that truly sustained him, and what this line of the prayer surely signifies.

The illumination of Jesus’s words in this quote helps us to recognize the fullness and intimacy of this prayer and the Truth it affirms. We look eagerly and expectantly to God for grace—for sweet tenderness and love and guidance in ways that are healing and beautiful. God’s law of abundance meets our needs not only for physical well-being, but also assures that our hearts are fed as well. This daily bread, this daily grace, provides comfort for our grief, understanding for our yearning, peace in our struggles, inspiration for our apathy.

Our human affections that can often seem less than satisfied, are fed by this divine providence. This manna for the soul is always just right for each day and ready to be received in our receptive hearts and willing minds. Amen!

happy-new-year-greetings-card-pictures

“Truth makes a new creature, in whom old things pass away and ‘all things are become new’… We cannot fill vessels already full. They must first be emptied.” (Science and Health, page 201)

As we embark on a new year, we can take this statement even more to heart and follow its wise instruction. Truth—God’s Truth about us—is always renewing us, for God’s creation is always fresh and flourishing, good, innocent, free, and just right.

The layers of doubt, fear, and human experiences, may seem to make or unmake us, creating some new version of ourselves, roughened and toughened by time and loss, mistake and circumstance. But in each moment, we have Truth to tell us what is really going on and to invite us to experience life with a new perspective and a new promise.

We can allow this Truth to recreate us—to reveal us in our full splendor and infinite potential. Our job is to empty those vessels and let in the currents of cleansing, renewing, Life and Love. We must do our best to detach from the lies and burdens we have been carrying around, that have been belittling us and causing us to lose our sparkle. We can’t continue to hold on to those limiting beliefs about ourselves and accept and experience a renewal at the same time.

Dump out the trash! Be willing to start fresh this year (and each day!), with God alone telling you who you are and what is truly possible for you as His child, His beloved and blessed!

A happy New Year to you!

“…the darkness is beginning to lift and the true light is now shining in the world. Anyone who claims to be ‘in the light’ and hates his brother is, in fact, still in complete darkness. The man who loves his brother lives and moves in the light, and has no reason to stumble.” (I John 2: 8-10, J.B. Phillips New Testament)

The darkness is lifting. The recognition of the power of Love is coming to light. And we are the living evidence of this radiance and its capacity to heal and to save.

We can actively, consciously, conscientiously, persistently, realize and claim that it is infinitely better to love than to hate. Love is God and God is Almighty. Hatred opposes omnipotence and it cannot win, cannot do us or anyone any good. To hate another is to agree to be in the dark, to walk in ignorance of the beauty, peace, and true and genuine joy of loving.

We must be true to ourselves. We must be clear that it is more natural for us to love than to hate. We must come to see that love is light and light gives us progress, insight, energy, joy. Love causes us to prosper. Hating another, resenting them, envying them, or judging them, is a stumbling block in our natural and easy way to success.

Hatred is a flame that burns us up. The true light of Love leads us safely, warms us, and makes our way clear, productive, and full of genuine and generous joy!

“‘Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid.’ Let us watch, work, and pray that this salt lose not its saltness, and that this light be not hid, but radiate and glow into noontide glory.” (Science and Health, page 367)

You are made to illumine the world with your authentic and powerful God-light. The goodness and love within you are meant to be shared and to bring healing and comfort and joy to others far and near. This light that is you; this valuable commodity that is genuine and needed, must endure.

If we are to be of use to others and find peace and satisfaction ourselves, we must be faithful about tending our light and keeping the “salt” of our nature real and true and of its most pure quality. It takes alertness not to get sucked into letting others take our light away from us by their own opinions and judgment. Likewise, it can be tempting to allow ourselves to blend in with others, thus losing the very specialness that is truly honest, God-designed, and therefore, powerful.

Continue to nurture your own light and love and capacity by remembering its Source. When you feel too small or too overwhelmed or too uncertain to cut loose and share boldly what you feel and know and are, simply remember that the all-wise Mind saw fit to form you, just as you are, and His purpose is that you express His own glory, presence, and goodness.

So, put yourself on that “hill.” Let yourself be aligned with and defined by God on High, and not by the earthly perceptions. Stay above and beyond limits, and on that mountain of Truth, shining boldly, joyously, and naturally!

“For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.” (Isaiah 9: 6)

Jesus was born on that glorious morning and with him came realizations that would change the world. The Truth of Life was awakened in mankind, fulfilling the prophesy of Isaiah. This son of God was the Messiah who gave us not only a healing and loving view of life, but one that was mighty and everlasting.

We can be reminded this holiday season that grateful awe is an appropriate feeling just as it was on the day of the Christ-child’s birth. For this innocent idea of God and His child continues to be the very governing power of our lives. This simple yet profound event dawns in our hearts each day as we accept this law of Life, God’s eternal Word about us as His own children and beloved.

Let’s bring to each day a renewed reverence for what we have been given. This light of healing Love continues to be the very undergirding Principle of the world and the controlling, guiding, protecting power over us all. The Prince of Peace has come and has not left us. This is everlasting Christmas—a new morning light each day awakening us to the Christ, the active presence of the divine here and now for all mankind to feel and know.

“…one cannot suffer as the result of any labor of love, but grows stronger because of it.” (Science and Health, page 387)

We are strengthened by our commitment to goodness. We gain power and comfort and peace as we do good. We can’t be depleted by giving, from an honest heart.

Why is this? It is certainly easy to feel at times that doing for others is draining and overwhelming. But, when we approach any right action from the standpoint of its Source in God’s own Love, we are safe and secure. A “labor of love” that finds one also equally burdened with personal responsibility, fear, doubt, or colored with resentment, is not fully reliant on the Love of God, which is strengthening, progressive, and peaceful.

Listen to your heart and do what it tells you to do. Let divine Love guide you, step-by-step. For a labor of love for another is also an activity with Love—that is, with God and within His Love ourselves. Divine Love is protection and power. We reflect this Love; we don’t carry it as a burden. It is a healing force for others and it lifts us up as well, carries us through, gives us success, energy, clarity, and appreciation.

We cannot suffer for doing loving work. Remember to do these inspired tasks with divine Love—with God’s guidance and His power, as well as His care for and joy in, you! Your work will benefit others and bless you as well!

“Do not be seized with alarm and struck with fear, little flock, for it is your Father’s good pleasure to give you the kingdom!” (Luke 12: 32, Amplified Bible Classic Edition)

Be calm and be thankful. These may seem like days to fear and doubt, to feel anxiety about our lives individually and about our world. But we do have a promise. There is a higher intention that is keeping us safe, secure, and with gifts of goodness to enjoy.

Let’s envision ourselves as Jesus did. Let’s see that we are not a scattered and confused and discordant horde of people, constantly bickering, warring, and lacking in substance and in joy. Let’s instead recognize that we are part of a flock. To God we are a “little flock,” a product of His great Love, but also His intimate family, dear ones who are learning, growing, straying, mistaking, wandering, wondering, but continually beloved and watched.

We don’t have to earn the kingdom of God’s grace and Love. It is His pleasure to give it to us, for that is what Love does. It loves. Our task is to realize that we are indeed sheep in God’s flock, under His patient and wise care, and that not one of us is excluded or out of His sight.

Each of us has a place and sufficiency in His pasture—in the kingdom of true peace, harmony, safety, and with a fearless awareness of the Shepherd’s abundant Love.

“…test and prove all things [until you can recognize] what is good; [to that] hold fast.” (I Thessalonians 5: 21, Amplified Bible Classic Edition)

We are students in the laboratory of life. Through our experiences, we are given the opportunity to discover what is true and demonstrable and right for us. We gain a genuine recognition of and appreciation for what is good and lasting and beneficial.

We are not being asked in this passage to simply take something on faith. While trust is a beautiful thing, more is required if we are to be sure not only of the Truth of something but also of our own understanding of the Principle and its practicality in life. We must take whatever inspires us or what we are being taught, and utilize it, put it into practice.

And when we discover what does work—what brings us healing and happiness and a sense of purpose and productivity—to this we must stay loyal. We can come to realize and comprehend, even through trial and error, that God’s control is more freeing than personal control; that Love feels healthier and more productive than resentment, hate, fear, guilt; that a limited view of our life is not the reality of it and that we have access to more freedom. And then these truths we can trust and nurture, continue to practice and to love.

Let’s put our lives to the test. We are safe in God’s reality as we gain a deeper recognition of the magnificent Life we’ve been given and so to experience it fully, with awareness and gratitude, generosity and joy!

“Live right, and you will eat from the life-giving tree. And if you act wisely, others will follow.” (Proverbs 11: 30, Contemporary English Version)

Living rightly is riches. It feeds and sustains us and causes us to grow in understanding and in grace. This “right living” is not moral uptightness or a sober and joyless experience. Right living is living in relation to the divine. It is being so connected to God and His goodness, His very design for our being, that we can’t fail to act in love, with good intentions, and to flourish in doing so.

Actions that proceed from a sincere, gracious, and grateful heart, give us not only sustenance and strength, but also a spring in our step, a happiness that isn’t simply pleasure, but is truly contentment within. When we consciously recognize the truth of our being—at one with God and expressing His qualities—we walk naturally and easily forward. We progress.

And we become leaders not by force or appointment, but because others are drawn to what we do and who we are. They recognize and respond to the wisdom that we have gained and that we practice. They are also attracted to our joy—our true satisfaction in being and doing good just because it is who we want to be and who we are.

“[Jesus’s] students slept. He said unto them: ‘Could ye not watch with me one hour?’ Could they not watch with him who, waiting and struggling in voiceless agony, held uncomplaining guard over a world?” (Science and Health, page 48)

This statement is a real wake-up call to us all. Jesus spent the night in the garden of Gethsemane, awaiting what he must have known would be his eventual arrest and crucifixion. He found his students sleeping.

Jesus did not ask them to do all that he had done. He didn’t request that his students overturn every supposition of life in matter and of evil as real, or that they definitively demonstrate health and life as enduring and available in every place. Jesus didn’t require the apostles to do all that he himself had so willingly and lovingly done to change the world. He did not ask them to sacrifice their own lives for him.

He asked them for one hour. Jesus was standing at the brink not only of his human life being threatened, but also so near that momentous occasion that would reveal his resurrection and the world’s recognition of God as everlasting Life. He desired this one thing of his friends—one hour to guard over this truth, be alert for danger, and to watch with tender care, peace, and a deep and grateful love for the Master and his saving mission.

Will you take up a watch today? Such a watch is not sitting in wait for trouble. It is not paranoid or fear-based. It is a listening with Christ. It is taking an honest and earnest stand for an hour (or more!) to be love, see love, expect love, and act love for that small but powerful span of time. This is natural to us and it is powerful for our own well-being and for the world as well.

Will you watch with me and with the Christ for one hour? Will you be awake to the world’s need for your prayers, your trust, your love? Will you stay awake then to witness the results of your tender vigilance, empowered by divine Truth and Love?

“Progress is born of experience. It is the ripening of mortal man, through which the mortal is dropped for the immortal.” (Science and Health, page 296)

Our human lives are not wasteful or declining. They are constant progression. The steps and circumstances, the overcoming and the learning, are experience that leads us to the very best awareness of Life as it was meant to be.

We are not aging and eventually retiring from life. We are ripening. We are coming to fruition, maturing into our full flower, developing into our prime state of being. This life we lead provides daily opportunities to drop the old way of thinking for a new, wiser, more progressive way. Each step forward we take is development, advancement, because it is impelled and governed by God, by Spirit, by the Truth that must be made known.

Let’s recognize and be eager to give up the mortal sense of ourselves. Let’s allow our learning lives to shine us up, display our bright colors and our true and natural and necessary purpose—to show forth God’s nature and goodness, fully and freely, genuinely and eagerly!

john-17-11

“I am not praying for these alone but also for the future believers who will come to me because of the testimony of these. My prayer for all of them is that they will be of one heart and mind, just as you and I are, Father…I have given them the glory you gave me—the glorious unity of being one, as we are…” (John 17: 20-22, the Living Bible)

Jesus is praying for you! Isn’t this wonderful? I love to recognize that this prayer with his immediate apostles extends to us all. Jesus was consciously embracing in this earnest request, all those who believe in God and His Christ—in that Truth of man’s oneness with divine Life and Love.

Jesus’s prayer for us all is that we feel and know our true unity with God, and with one another, through divine Love. Because of the Master’s awareness of his own tender yet powerful relationship with God, he could not contain this good news or leave it to disappear into time. He was “of one heart and mind” with God, and this treasured consciousness was what healed, saved, and even overcame death.

This absolute unity with God—heart and soul and mind—was glorious! This glory was not exclusive. Jesus was certain that all should have this same magnificent and powerful Truth to feel and know and declare and share and live. So, this inspired man who always prayed with perfect results, prayed for us. He prayed that each one of us receive the full and deep awareness that we are one with God and with one another.

Let’s receive this prayer and believe in its healing power for ourselves and for our world!

“Enter into His gates with thanksgiving and a thank offering and into His courts with praise! Be thankful and say so to Him, bless and affectionately praise His name!” (Psalms 100: 4, Amplified Bible Classic Edition)

Thanksgiving is a blessed occasion to celebrate our gratitude for the good that we have. It is a day to recognize God as the abundant Source of this goodness. We can eagerly enter this wonderful realm of Love with a consecrated awareness of the blessings that are ours both to enjoy and to share.

Many of us come together today on this holiday, as we celebrate it in the United States, and are aware of our family, friends, and food! It is a joyous time, focused on gratitude and grace, and it should be a reminder to leave fear and anger and contention outside His gates.

We can actively express this grateful praise every day. Our offering to God is our recognition of His ever-presence and of His control over all. Our sincere thanks should be an acknowledgment not only of the good material gifts we see before us, but of those infinite qualities of good that are much greater and more lasting than a festive table setting.

Love, Truth, peace, joy, compassion, goodness, forgiveness, mercy, wholeness, unity, are the enduring ideas that make all the good we see possible and truly felt in our hearts. Let’s try to remember today and every day to give thanks to God—affectionately, lovingly, genuinely. Let’s remember gratefully that as we share these God-qualities, we ourselves are further enriched, all year long.

A Happy Thanksgiving to you!

“Spirit names and blesses all. Without natures particularly defined, objects and subjects would be obscure, and creation would be full of nameless offspring, — wanderers from the parent Mind, strangers in a tangled wilderness.” (Science and Health, page 507)

You were given your very unique name by God Himself. Spirit’s name for you defines your nature, identifies you with God’s family forever, and is the special and precious way He calls you His beloved. Your name is that inner heart of you that never changes and is never confused with anyone else.

God made sure that His creation was and is as infinitely varied as He is. God, Spirit, designed an exquisite universe filled with every right and good idea, expressing His own qualities and His purpose. Each of us has been brought into being with a special identity, one that is not only individual, unlike any other, but also so very blessed.

This permanent identification with the divine means we are never wandering about trying to find ourselves or our place or our reason for being. We are forever secure in God’s vision for us and His vision of us. He knows you by name—as you truly are and as grand and lovely as He made you to be.

Nothing is obscure or uncertain or lost in the divine Mind’s family of ideas. Each of us is vibrantly expressing God, as only we can do!

“…glory and honor and inner peace [will be given] to everyone who habitually does good…For God shows no partiality [no arbitrary favoritism; with Him one person is not more important than another].” (Romans 2: 10-11, Amplified Bible)

Every man has the right and ability to feel the love of God fully. There are no favorites in God’s Oneness. Each idea of His was conceived out of Love and to be loved. Not one is less important or worthy of affection than another. No one can move out of His Infinite Mind and into isolation, hatred, evil, shame. No individualized expression of Life can stray from its Source nor can one gain a better standing than another.

Our glory and honor and inner peace is not bestowed by an arbitrary or partial God. It is abundantly ours at all times. We gain access to good by doing good. The blessing is felt and realized in our experience as we unite with our true nature and act as we were caused to act; be what we were made to be.

This alignment with the Truth gives us peace. It causes us to feel connected to our genuine selves and to others, because we are connected to God, to Life, to Truth, and to Love. We can naturally yield to the Love that we have and that we are, and rejoice that this great inheritance belongs freely to one and all!

prodigalson

The Return of the Prodigal Son by Rembrandt

“My child, you’re always with me. Everything I have is yours.” (Luke 15: 31, God’s Word Translation)

A father’s words to his son in this parable echo the promise and guarantee of our Father-Mother to each one of us.

In this teaching story that Jesus gave us, the prodigal son strays from home and wastes away his inheritance behaving badly and without a good sense of morality. When he returns home in rags and in shame, his father welcomes him with love and a feast. His son has returned home—has come to recognize the necessity of goodness and the value of gratitude.

This prodigal son’s brother had remained home with his father, faithfully carrying out his work and living a righteous life. He becomes angry and envious when this errant brother is given such a celebration, and he himself hasn’t received such a party.

His father’s answer to this son is instructive. This obedient son who stayed by his father’s side was never without the father’s kindness, the treasures of being loved, just as we are never without the Father-Mother’s protection and affection.

The prodigal son didn’t gain anything new by returning home. He just became aware of what love and goodness truly meant. He became conscious of how much he needed his father. Likewise, the prodigal’s brother also was made aware in this rich lesson, of what had always been his. He could no longer take it for granted.

We are always with God, no matter where we go or what our state of thought may be. We are one with Him, beloved children held warmly and safely in His thought, and supplied with every right idea. We don’t need to do anything to get this inheritance nor can we lose it. All that is needed is awareness, acceptance, and gratitude.

purpose

“Many plans are in a man’s mind, But it is the Lord’s purpose for him that will stand (be carried out).” (Proverbs 19: 21, Amplified Bible)

We’re all just full of ideas. Some of them are good and inspired. Some of these thoughts are not productive, helpful, or even true. We make plans and we also tend to predict, at times unconsciously, what is in store for us. We have great aspirations, but at the same time we put conditions and limits on their realization. We also may find ourselves agreeing that our lives must necessarily pass through certain phases to carry out an agenda based on a supposed material view of life.

But all these plans, these human designs and limits, are not the Truth for us. God’s purpose is the one that will stand, that must be carried out. His wise and loving will for us is the intention that is real and right and good and limitless; that can’t be lost in time or by human actions.

God’s purpose for us is that we remain faithfully what He caused us to be. His intention is perfection, immortality, progress, and peace. God isn’t confused by the “many plans in a man’s mind,” nor is he swayed by material beliefs or presentations about our life. God’s plans don’t involve human will or the lack of it. His all-powerful design is the one that is legitimate and just right for us.

Release your thought and your life from its little human plans and expectations, and let God’s purpose reveal its natural and boundless splendor!

“I will bless you with a future filled with hope—a future of success, not of suffering. You will turn back to me and ask for help, and I will answer your prayers.” (Jeremiah 29: 11-12, Contemporary English Version)

Wouldn’t it be wonderful to accept this benediction for ourselves? Wouldn’t it feel satisfying, safe, and assuring to willingly receive this blessing upon our future along with the awareness that we will always have a recourse for help should we need it?

So, let’s just do it! Let’s release ourselves with gladness and gratitude to this word from God. We have access to this hope for tomorrow, and it rests in accepting God’s blessing today. Let the struggling thought, fearing or fretting over the future, pause to receive God’s abiding promise right now. God’s Love is yours today. It is yours tomorrow. It will always be yours.

In this moment, we can receive this divine assurance.  We can expect success and not suffering. We can set aside those beliefs that evil is inevitable or that we are somehow the exception to God’s rule of abundance and grace.

Gratefully realize that this word of God is yours. It comes from Truth itself just for you. You can expect the best. You can know that even if uncertainty does arise in your glorious future, you will always have a place to turn. God will lead you back on course, back to His intention for you and for all—to express His own glory and to be blessed today, tomorrow, and always.

cityonahill

“You are the light of the world. You cannot hide a city that has been built upon a mountain.” (Matthew 5: 14, Aramaic Bible in Plain English)

We are made to share our light. This light is that goodness and love that God has given us; the reflection of Truth’s presence and power. Such brightness can’t really be hidden, and yet at times we try to do just that. We choose to question our capacity to have a meaningful impact on others and instead shadow our own light in self-doubt and fear and personal sense.

But this city, this great ideal that God expresses through you, is a powerful beacon and sanctuary. Its purpose can’t be denied. There is no way that something so large and lovely and true as God’s own intention of Love, can be kept under wraps.

It is situated on a mountain. It stands upon a rock that puts it above the earth and its dark beliefs. When we stand upon the mountain—the recognition that our light and our power are founded in God, the great I AM, the infinite Source—we are able to accomplish much and find the true confidence to share that healing glow with all.

You are a living witness to God’s qualities. You have an abundant gift to give to the world simply by remembering who you are as God’s own image, His powerful and necessary expression of Truth, Life, and Love.

Don’t hide your radiance or qualify it. Get on that mountain and shine!

our-sucesses

“For the Spirit God gave us does not make us timid, but gives us power, love and self-discipline.” (II Timothy 1: 7, New International Version)

You may believe you were born lacking in certain things. You may have come to buy that your capacities are limited and that you can’t achieve great things.

But a belief about yourself isn’t Truth. God gave us our true identity. He filled us up with all the qualities for success and made them easily accessible to us. You were built to shine with a powerful light and to share that easily, freely, and with impact.

You were made with love in your heart and soul, and with an innate awareness of God’s Love for you. You were not made to degrade yourself or others, but to feel that rich and right desire to love just as God loves you.

And you were designed to be obedient to God’s plan for you and for all. His supreme control is reflected in your ability to be faithful to goodness, to follow a higher path, to be organized and clear and progressive, and to be unafraid. You have been bestowed, naturally, with all that guarantees success.

This achievement is Spirit’s gift, not material attainment or demonstration. It comes of God, the everlasting Presence, so these wonderful attributes are always available to claim, each day, without conditions upon them.

You are powerful, loving, and obedient to God. You are fearlessly ready to do great things and to do them with gratitude and joy!

“I am with you every day, even unto the end of time.” (Matthew 28: 20, Aramaic Bible in Plain English)

Jesus’s comforting words are meant just for us. These intimate words to his disciples following his resurrection are the ultimate message for us all.

We will never have a day without the Christ. There is not a single moment where we are not being accompanied, guided, protected, inspired by the presence of the Comforter. This Truth of our Life, straight from God’s own heart of Love, is always near.

Today we walk in grace. Today we have the Christ—the conscious and powerful Truth of our oneness with God. This loving one is always just what we need in just the way we need it. God’s Truth is precise and healing. It is tenderness. It is strength. It is insight. It is awakening. It is beauty and joy at hand and made real for us. Each moment. Today and until the end of time.

Jesus’s promise is Truth’s guarantee. Open your spiritual eyes and see your faithful companion and guide, forever with you and in you, unfailing and loving and saving, here and now and forever.

“Consider it nothing but joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you fall into various trials. Be assured that the testing of your faith [through experience] produces endurance [leading to spiritual maturity, and inner peace].” (James 1: 2-3, Amplified Bible)

Don’t let the challenges of life cause you to feel you are failing or losing. Trials will come to everyone in human experience. These are occasions to put into practice what we are learning of God and to gain an even greater understanding.

And this heightened awareness of God in all circumstances, and turning to Him for solutions, reveals strength and patience and maturity in us. As we are humbled to listen and lean on God’s Love, to give up personal control and ego, and to be led into fresh views and renewed opportunities, we are indeed winning.

It is our joy, in fact, to gain through overcoming. For not only can we say truthfully that we have had a victory, have beat the enemy back through our endurance and wisdom; but we also through each testing become more practiced at recognizing the lie when it comes to tempt us into its trap, and demonstrating the Truth that defeats it.

The added bonus is that we gain a greater view of God’s presence and power and know exactly why it is the solution to all. Divine Love is fully appreciated, not taken for granted. We know the value of what we have, and we are less willing to forget it in times of trouble and even in times of peace and joy.

“May the God who inspires men to endure, and gives them a Father’s care, give you a mind united towards one another because of your common loyalty to Jesus Christ. And then, as one man, you will sing from the heart the praises of God the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ.” (Romans 15: 5-6, JB Phillips New Testament)

We can take hold of this blessing and begin the joyous song together!

Our Father-Mother-God is faithfully protecting us as He guides us forward with new insight, inspiration, conscious awareness of Life as it truly is. His Christ-message—that powerful and enduring love-note to His children—has been bestowed on us. We have been shown the facts of our birthright and our immortality.

God has revealed that we are His own children, the ideas of His own perfect Mind, conceived of Love, and held perpetually in His Life. This great news is our common theme, and our cause for joint celebration. We are loyal to Christ, to the consciousness of spiritual being, our eternal guarantee of well-being, peace, and life.

So let us sing praises to God as one man—as the unified voice of God’s ideal. Let’s come together in natural unison and celebrate the universal song of Life and Love that God Himself has written and released to the world!

“Self-forgetfulness, purity, and affection are constant prayers.” (Science and Health, page 15)

Connecting with God in active prayer isn’t exclusively quiet communion and thoughts and words expressed to God. There are ways to pray in every moment, in the midst of our experiences, and to more clearly and effectively recognize that oneness with Him on the fly, so to speak.

A constant prayer is the way in which we live. You are a living prayer as you feel and express that true connection with God, good, Love. The realization of the three aspects in the quote naturally bring us into harmony with God and into an awareness of His goodness for us and for all.

With self-forgetfulness, we give up the false sense of a personal self out on our own, disconnected from the divine One. Additionally, we let go of selfishness and in doing so see how much we have to give. We feel a sense of the unity that blesses all.

Purity is that condition of being free of anything that pollutes or contaminates. We can cleanse ourselves from any impurity by being aware of those aspects of our thinking and behavior that don’t fully honor good and that tend to cloud our clarity and hide our loveliness. When we claim our innocence and live that purity that is truly ours, we are in a state of receptive prayer, for we are free of impediments to hearing and feeling God’s presence.

And true affection is a constant prayer as well. It is being Love and expressing it toward God’s creation. It is loving Love and loving to love, and this aligns us with God in every way—it is a prayer that honors God for the Love that He is, and shares it with others generously as well.

“Faith is higher and more spiritual than belief. It is a chrysalis state of human thought, in which spiritual evidence, contradicting the testimony of material sense, begins to appear, and Truth, the ever-present, is becoming understood.” (Science and Health, page 297)

Faith is a beautiful thing. It is the entryway to a heavenly perspective, the unfurling of wondrous reality in the place of limits, doubts, fears, discord.

This faith is ours to claim and feel. Give yourself permission to take your belief in Truth, God, good, to an even more spiritual level. Allow yourself to bask in that protected space of transformation, that chrysalis thought which is ready to be convinced that there is something better than a small and challenging life. Let that faith in Love, the power of goodness, and in yourself as God’s own child and image, settle into conviction.

This sweet experience of simple childlike trust, without the need to argue, instructs us into a better understanding of Life as it really is. We begin to see what seem like miracles to the faithless human sense, but which only feel just right and natural from our higher standpoint.

Truth is becoming understood. Faith guides us there. You are not a doubter or a skeptic. You have faith because you are everything God made you to be—wise, loving, lovable, perceptive, and a willing receiver of God’s own grace lovingly revealed.

walk-in-love

“This is the command as you have heard it from the beginning: you must walk in love.” (II John 1: 6, Holman Christian Standard Bible)

We were made to love. We were designed at the start to be the very evidence of God’s presence. God is Love. So our nature and our purpose is that of Love. Our individual expression of this spiritual affection may be unique and take on different forms in the day to day human experience, but it must still be Love’s presence walking this earth.

When we disassociate from divine Love or deny its presence in us or towards us, we essentially go against our true nature. We have forgotten who we are and Who God is. We have allowed something less than Love to guide us, to fill us up, to motivate us. When we aren’t walking in Love, we aren’t really getting anywhere we need to go. We may be physically moving or advancing according to some human measure of success, but we are not gaining the true riches of Life; we are not becoming acquainted with our own real value and beauty.

The original command at our very origin was to be like God. We were created as the image of the Life that is Love. Own up. Be who you are. Don’t forget the Truth that was written within you at the start. Walk in Love. Be Love.

“Let the peace of Christ [the inner calm of one who walks daily with Him] be the controlling factor in your hearts [deciding and settling questions that arise].” (Colossians 3: 15, Amplified Bible)

Doesn’t this sound like a much more peaceful way to make decisions and live our lives? What would our lives really look like if we took a gentle pause to allow that peace of Christ, that inner calm, to take the lead?

Paul tells us in this verse that we are not reaching out of ourselves for this guidance or asking others to advise or even calm us. There is no striving here, no strain to gain inspiration, comfort, wisdom. It is about letting. This blessing reminds us lovingly to allow that peace already within to settle us and lead us rightly.

Anything that comes up in our lives is truly best settled from this standpoint. A mind all churned up with choices, concerns, regrets, and fears, can’t see clearly or decide rationally. On the other hand, when we rest in a reliance on God, the divine Mind, knowing His presence with us and in us, we have clarity. The peace that this consciousness of Love brings, expands the vision, dissolves confusion, and reveals our safety in God and with it, the next and natural step forward with Him.

We all have this “inner calm” because we all do walk daily with God. He is with each one of us at all times. We can accept this, lean on it, relax into this awareness, and accept the true control by God that brings freedom for His children, you and me.

wheat-for-reaping

“And his allowance was a continual allowance given him of the king, a daily rate for every day, all the days of his life.” (II Kings 25: 30)

This describes our own inheritance and expectation. We are given an allowance, a daily bestowing of good, needs met, and love provided, and we will never be without this holy per diem.

The king, our governing God and our very own Father-Mother, is always giving us what is right and necessary, at just the right time and sufficiently. This verse is a reminder of our divine right and should be our grateful expectancy. It is also the most wonderful reason why we can stop fearing forward or judging backward, and begin to simply trust in this moment and see the good unfold.

God fed Moses and his followers with manna. This was the king’s provision for their journey as they sought their promised land. It appeared every morning and it was just right for their sustenance. They could come to expect its blessings and to never be disappointed. As we seek our promised land; as we make our way in what may feel like an uncertain and meandering pathway of human experience, we can rely on each day’s provision to continue.

This gift of goodness is inspiration, guidance, practical needs met in ways foreseen and unforeseen, and an abundant and non-stop Love that God has for us. This outpouring doesn’t need to be hoarded and its continuity can’t be lost. It never runs out. We are safe and sound now. Be still in this moment, trust what you are receiving, and use and share it freely! There is more on the way in our new tomorrow!
