“AMEN."

Matthew 6:13c


"This is the Truth, and it is now done." Eric Butterworth, Discover the Power in You

"The highest of all forms of prayer is true contemplation, in which the thought and the thinker become one." Emmet Fox, Sermon on the Mount.

"The eye is the lamp of the body. So, if your eye is healthy, your whole body will be full of light." Matthew 6:22


"To realize an idea in the silence is to clothe it with life, substance, and intelligence. To realize a prayer is to actualize it. To realize it is to clothe it with soul, to know there is fulfillment." Charles Fillmore, Teach Us To Pray


"Amen. More than just saying 'the end' this phrase literally means 'sealed in trust, faith and truth.' It is a way of saying, 'I affirm this with my whole being.'" Neil Douglas-Klotz

"As we leave old circumstances, beliefs, habits, and desires behind, and seek to understand and to enter into and get the blessings out of the larger life which is ever opening to us, we are filled with a sense of peace, freedom, and assurance that all is well." Myrtle Fillmore, How to Let God Help You

“FOR THINE IS THE KINGDOM
AND THE POWER, AND THE GLORY, FOREVER."


Matthew 6:13b


"In all that I seek to be or do or have, I humbly realize that in the Presence is my power to think, my very thought of aspiration my will to commence, my strength to keep on, my power to achieve, and the glory of all my accomplishments." Eric Butterworth, Discover the Power in You

"The wondrous change that comes over us as we gradually realize what the Omnipresence of God really means, transfigures every phase of our lives, turning sorrow into joy, age into youth, and dullness into light and life... And the bliss we know in that experience is still God Himself, who is knowing that bliss through us." Emmet Fox, Sermon on the Mount.
 

"You are the light of the world... let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father in heaven." Matthew 5:14


"Omnipresence is that spiritual realm which can be penetrated only through the most highly accelerated mind action, as in prayer.  Thus in unfolding this inner kingdom we are dealing with a reality beyond the ordinary comprehension of man. To the superbly tuned mind and brain of Jesus Divine Mind was a soil eager with vibrant life and light and substance, which He used to produce the finest of materials for both character and body building." Charles Fillmore, Teach Us To Pray


"Metool d'lokh he malkoota, wakhaila weteshbookta, l'olam almeen (Aramaic) 'To you belongs the ruling mind, the life that can act and do, the song that beautifies all, from age to age it renews.'" Neil Douglas-Klotz

"Before we can enter into the kingdom of God (Spirit or Mind) which opens to us through this new way of thinking and living, we must drop old prejudices and old thoughts and sit meekly down to learn what is true." Myrtle Fillmore, How to Let God Help You

"Every generous act of giving, with every perfect gift, is from above, coming down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation or shadow due to change." James 1:17

"Remembering that the things which are seen are the temporal and the unreal, which pass away, while the things which are not seen are the eternal, the real, let us carry this thought of the "no thing" a little further. Unhappiness is not a reality because it is not eternal; it belongs in the category of things which pass away. Envy, selfishness, jealousy, fear, and so forth are not real entities in our lives. Each is a lack of love, its positive opposite. Lack of temporal goods, lack of health, lack of wisdom - these things do not belong to the kingdom of the real because they are all temporal things which will, as the philosopher Epictetus said, "pass away." Nothing is real except the eternal, that which is based on the real Substance - God - that which can never be changed or made less by any external circumstances whatever." H. Emilie Cady, How I Used Truth.

Please continue to affirm with us, "I am a spiritual being; I live in a spiritual universe; my life is governed by spiritual law; I am a radiating center of light and love, mighty to attract my good and to radiate good to others!"

“Leave us not in temptation
but deliver us from evil."


Matthew 6:13


"In this statement Jesus is simply affirming the Truth that the the urge for the expression of our potential is so great in us (that which we call the will of God) that it will never leave us comfortless in our time of trial." Eric Butterworth, Discover the Power in You

"If we are wise, and work daily, as we should, for wisdom, understanding, purity, and the guidance of the Holy Spirit, we never shall find ourselves in any difficulty for which we have not the understanding necessary to clear ourselves." Emmet Fox, Sermon on the Mount.
 

"Blessed are those who are persecuted for righteousness sake, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven." Matthew 5:10


"The Garden of Eden is within us here and now, and the subtle temptation to eat of the tree of sensation is also still with us. We have been given dominion over the animal forces of the body, the "beasts of the field," and must tame them, making them servants instead of masters of the body.." Charles Fillmore, Prosperity


"Wela tahlan loinisyuna. Ela patssan men bisha (Aramaic) 'Do not let us lose ourselves in superficial appearances. But also separate us from unripeness.'" Neil Douglas-Klotz

"Our restlessness represents a power that is crying out to be expressed. It may take the form of appetite or of ambition, but rightly directed it will be a wonderful something within us that will transcend all the desires of the outer senses." Myrtle Fillmore, How to Let God Help You

"Every generous act of giving, with every perfect gift, is from above, coming down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation or shadow due to change." James 1:17

"Every denial of evil and affirmation of good you have made has served to push you upward. Do not fear or get nervous because you seem to "fail." Failure is often success written with a capital S. " H. Emilie Cady, Lessons in Truth.

Please continue to affirm with us, "I am a spiritual being; I live in a spiritual universe; my life is governed by spiritual law; I am a radiating center of light and love, mighty to attract my good and to radiate good to others!"

“Forgive us our debts
as we also have forgiven our debtors."


Matthew 6:12


"This indicates the working of the great Cosmic Law. Give and receive, cause  and effect, forgive and you are forgiven." Eric Butterworth, Discover the Power in You

"The forgiveness of sins is the central problem of life. Sin is a sense of separation from God, and is the major tragedy of human experience... Our true selves are at one with God, undivided from Him, expressing His ideas, witnessing to His nature - the dynamic Thinking of that Mind." Emmet Fox, Sermon on the Mount.
 

"...first be reconciled to your brother, and then come and offer your gift" Matthew 5:24


"You are nothing less than a child of God, and to you is intrusted the creative power.  When you realize this you can go forth forgiving men their sins as you have forgiven your own." Charles Fillmore, Teach Us To Pray


"Washbooklan khowvine wakhtahine ayekana doff chinnan shvokin, l'kaiyovine (Aramaic) 'Let us experience the same freedom from our mistakes and impressions that we wish others to experience.'" Neil Douglas-Klotz

"Be forgiving, because the true light reveals the fact that others are only children, experimenting, trying to use what God has given, and dependent to some extent upon the discipline and help which come from bumping up against others. Forgive, because you can see the real." Myrtle Fillmore, How to Let God Help You

"Every generous act of giving, with every perfect gift, is from above, coming down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation or shadow due to change." James 1:17

"To forgive is to give for,to give some actual, definite good in return for evil given. One may say "I have no one to forgive. I have not a personal enemy in the world." Even so. And yet, if under any circumstances there is any kind of "served-him-right" spirit springs up within you over anything any of God's children may do or suffer, you have not yet learned how to forgive.." H. Emilie Cady, Lessons in Truth.

Please continue to affirm with us, "I am a spiritual being; I live in a spiritual universe; my life is governed by spiritual law; I am a radiating center of light and love, mighty to attract my good and to radiate good to others!"

“Give us this day
our daily bread."


Matthew 6:11


"This is not asking God for supply for that would be like a fish asking the ocean for water. It is simply an affirmation of the Truth that God is substance, and a claiming of one's inheritance." Eric Butterworth, Discover the Power in You

"In short, we have to train ourselves to look to God, Cause, for all that we need, and then the channel, which is entirely a secondary matter, will take care of itself." Emmet Fox, Sermon on the Mount.
 

"But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things shall be yours as well.." Matthew 6:33


"Again the Spirit of truth opens our mind to God's law of supply and support, to the existence of a universal etheric thought substance prepared for man's body sustenance by infinite Mind.  We have thought that in answer to our prayers God in some mysterious manner brought about the marvelous demonstrations that we had.  Now we see that there has been prepared from the beginning an interpenetrating substance that, like a tenuous bread of heaven, showers us with its abundance." Charles Fillmore, Teach Us To Pray


"Havlan lakhma d'soonkannan yaomana. (Aramaic) 'Give us bread (understanding, support) for our needs from day to day..'" Neil Douglas-Klotz

"Bring forth your own joyous world of love, friendship, beauty, and plenty. God is giving everything required to build such a world. There is within you the God-given intelligence to build such a world. Get at it!" Myrtle Fillmore, How to Let God Help You

"Every generous act of giving, with every perfect gift, is from above, coming down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation or shadow due to change." James 1:17

"The Spirit of the living God within us, fed ever from the Fountainhead, is not only the Giver of all good gifts, the supplier of all supply, but is the gift itself. We must come right up to this point. The Giver and the Gift are one.

God Himself is the fulfillment -- or the substance which fills full -- of every desire." H. Emilie Cady, How I Used Truth.

Please continue to affirm with us, "I am a spiritual being; I live in a spiritual universe; my life is governed by spiritual law; I am a radiating center of light and love, might to attract my good and to radiate good to others!"

thy will be done
in earth as it is in heaven."


Matthew 6:10


"God's Kingdom is the perfect creation. Each individual is a perfect idea in God Mind, a divine possibility of infinite capacity." Eric Butterworth, Discover the Power in You

"That is to say, our work is to bring more and more of God's ideas into concrete manifestation upon this plane. That is what we are here for." Emmet Fox, Sermon on the Mount.
 

"I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven, and whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven." Matthew 16:19


"Omnipresence is that spiritual realm which can be penetrated only through the most highly accelerated mind action, as in prayer.  Thus in unfolding this inner kingdom we are dealing with a reality beyond the ordinary comprehension of man." Charles Fillmore, Teach Us To Pray


"Teete Malkootakh Nehve zviyanuch ayekana d'bashmaya off b'ar'ah: 'And Your Counsel rule 'til Oneness guides all. Your One Desire then acts with ours, as in all light, so in all forms.'" Neil Douglas-Klotz

"Radiant health and physical freedom and the greater awakening of all the faculties and their physical centers of activity is another more valuable gain than the increase in salary and the promotion to a greater chair in the management's office. The feeling that one is doing something to help in the establishment of the kingdom of heaven in the earth is great compensation for the hours of prayer and the effort to swing clear of the old commercial bondage and ways." Myrtle Fillmore, Myrtle Fillmore's Healing Letters

"Every generous act of giving, with every perfect gift, is from above, coming down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation or shadow due to change." James 1:17

"In other words he told these simple worldly-ignorant men how they might find the kingdom of heaven within themselves, the kingdom of love, of power, of life." H. Emilie Cady, Lessons in Truth.

Please affirm with us, "I am a spiritual being; I live in a spiritual universe; my life is governed by spiritual law; I am a radiating center of light and love, might to attract my good and to radiate good to others!"

“Our Father
which art in Heaven,
Hallowed be thy name."


Matthew 6:9


"This is the orientatation, the 'true point of beginning.' God is my Father, I am His child. This declares our unity with God at the outset, which is man's greatest, perhaps his only, need." Eric Butterworth, Discover the Power in You

"In this clause Jesus lays down once and for all that the relationship between God and man is that of father and child." Emmet Fox, Sermon on the Mount.

"Let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father in heaven." Matthew 5:16

"We must have this more intimate acquaintanceship or communion with creative Mind if we are in all ways to do His will." Charles Fillmore, Teach Us To Pray


"Abwoon d'bashmaya, 'O Thou from whom comes the breath of life, which is present in realms of vibration and light.'" Neil Doulas-Klotz

"The light of God revealed to us -- the thought came to me first -- that life was of God, that we were inseparably one with the source, and that we inherited from the divine and perfect Father.  What that revelation did to me at first was not apparent to the senses.  But it held my mind up above the negation, and I began to claim my birthright and to act as though I believed myself the child of God, filled with His life.  I gained.  And others saw that there was something new in me.  And they asked me to share it.  I did.  Others were healed, and began to study." Myrtle Fillmore, Myrtle Fillmore's Healing Letters

"Every generous act of giving, with every perfect gift, is from above, coming down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation or shadow due to change." James 1:17

It is not until we learn to live at the center and to know that we have power to radiate from that center this unceasing, abundant life, that we are well and strong.." H. Emilie Cady, Lessons in Truth.

Please affirm with us, "I am a spiritual being; I live in a spiritual universe; my life is governed by spiritual law; I am a radiating center of light and love, might to attract my good and to radiate good to others!"

“In order to contract, it is necessary first to expand.
In order to weaken, it is necessary first to strengthen.
In order to reduce, it is necessary first to build up.
In order to receive, it is necessary first to give.
This is called the mystic Light."


Lao Tse, Tao te Ching


The Japanese master Nan-in gave audience to a professor of philosophy. Serving tea, Nan-in filled his visitor's cup, and kept pouring. The professor watched the overflow until he could restrain himself no longer: "Stop! The cup is over full, no more will go in." Nan-in said: "Like this cup, you are full of your own opinions and speculations. How can I show you Zen unless you first empty your cup."

"Every generous act of giving, with every perfect gift, is from above, coming down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation or shadow due to change." James 1:17

"You have doubtless found that there is a spiritual law that brings into manifestation the thoughts we concentrate our attention on, a divine universal law of mind activity that is unfailing.  Some adverse condition of your own thought has prevented a full demonstration.  Do not let this swerve you from your loyalty to the law.  You may seem to attain results very slowly, but that is the best reason for sticking closely to your ideal and not changing your mind.  Be loyal to Principle and the adverse condition will break up.  Then the true light will come and the invisible substance you have been faithfully affirming will begin to reveal itself to you in all its fullness of good." Charles Fillmore, Prosperity

“The only place
to find contentment and health
is in the place or state of consciousness
that Christ, the Truth, has prepared for you."


Myrtle Fillmore, How to Let God Help You

 

"As a result of contentment, one gains supreme happiness." Patanjali, How to Know God, the yoga aphorisms of Patanjali


"God (Father-Mother) is a present help in time of need; but there must be a recognition of His presence, a turning away from human efforts, and an acknowledgment of God only (a single eye) before He becomes manifest." H. Emilie Cady, Lessons in Truth.

“Be content with what you have; rejoice in the way things are. When you realize there is nothing lacking, the whole world belongs to you.” Lau Tzu

"In a very real sense, heaven is 'upstairs" - but it is the upper level of man's total consciousness." Eric Butterworth, Discover the Power Within You

“He who is not contented with what he has, would not be contented with what he would like to have.” Socrates

"Have faith in what you do, and after it is done do not condemn yourself.  We all are seeking happiness, contentment, and we know by experience that we are happy when we are in tune with our environment." Charles Fillmore, Christian Healing

“The greatest wealth is to live content with little.” Plato

"Happiness runs in a circular motion, thought is like a little boat upon the sea. Everybody is a part of everything anyway. You can have everything if you let yourself be." Donavan

“Happiness comes
with the realization that
you are expressing what God has implanted in you."


Myrtle Fillmore, How to Let God Help You

 

"Most people are as happy as they make up their minds to be." Abraham Lincoln

"All your happiness, all your health and power, come from God. They flow in an unbroken stream from the Fountain Head into the very centre of your being and radiate from centre to circumference, or to the senses. When you acknowledge this constantly and deny that outside things can hinder your happiness or health or power, it helps the sense nature to realize health and power and happiness.." H. Emilie Cady, Lessons in Truth.

"Happiness is when what you think, what you say, and what you do are in harmony." -Mohandas K. Gandhi

"If you want others to be happy, practice compassion. If you want to be happy, practice compassion." -Dalai Lama

“let us eat and make merry;
for this my son was dead, and is alive again;
he was lost, and is found."


Luke 15:24


The tale of Two Sons, aka the Prodigal Son, is about two lost sons. One who left physically and one who stayed yet separated mentally. "Son, you are always with me and all that is mine is yours." Luke 15:31

Thoughts and feelings of guilt and fear, blame and resentment, privilege, lack and limitation separate us from the Father-Mind in consciousness; in Truth, we can never be separated from the infinite, unlimited and eternal presence and power that is God.


"If we are offspring of Diving Mind, why are we not naturally conscious of its presence?  The answer to this is: In using the privilege of our inheritance--the power to make ideas visible as things--we have created a realm that separates us in consciousness from the Father-Mind.  This is the teaching of Jesus in the parable of the prodigal son.  When we are weary of the sense consciousness, we have only to turn our face (intelligence) toward our Father's house; there we shall meet a loving welcome." Charles Fillmore, Christian Healing.

"Let the same divine love of God which Jesus described in His story of the prodigal son fill mind and heart and flow out to all concerned. When we love, and pour out the subtle love essence which stirs the heart center, we are moving to action the life energies of Being, and a great law of mind equilibrium is fulfilled." Myrtle Fillmore, How to Let God Help You.

"What is man? A man is what he can be... Only spiritual perception can tell... spiritual insight reveals man to be 'The Christ, the son of the living God.'" Eric Butterworth, Discover the Power Within You.

"Do you stop to think, really to comprehend, what it means to be 'heirs of God and joint heirs with Christ' (Rom. 8:17)? It means, as Emerson says, that 'every man is the inlet and may become the outlet, of all there is in God.' It means that all that God is and has is in reality for us, His only heirs, if we only know how to claim our inheritance." H. Emilie Cady, Lessons in Truth.

Today, and in all ways, I remember that "There is only One Presence, One Power, God the Good; Omnipotent" and know that all things are blessings of the One!

Please affirm with us, "All that God is, I am; I am open, receptive and responsive to the infinite Spirit of Truth; I am a blessing as I am blessed!"

“Relinquishing the fruit of action,
the disciplined man attains perfect peace."


The Bhagavad-Gita 5:12
 

"Seek first his kingdom and his righteousness and these things shall be yours as well." Matthew 6:33

"Seek first to be, and you will have, Jesus is saying. To have more you must be more. Success cannot be measured by what you have amassed. It can only be known by the level of consciousness you have achieved." Eric Butterworth, Discover the Power Within You.

"When the one Mind is called into action in your mind by your thinking about it, it lays hold of the substance by the law of attraction or sympathy of thought. Thus the more you know about God the more successful you will be in handling your body and all your affairs." Charles Fillmore, Prosperity.

"You are where you are because there is a need to be supplied... Our part is to recognize that we are getting what we need, and to rest in the assurance that when we are ready for something different it will come.." Myrtle Fillmore, How to Let God Help You.

"When you lack wisdom in small or large matters 'wait thou upon God,' and see what marvelous wisdom for action will be given you. When desiring to speak the word which shall deliver another from the bondage of sickness or sin or sorrow 'wait thou upon God;' and just exactly the right word will be given you, and power will go with it for it will be alive with Spirit." H. Emilie Cady, Lessons in Truth.

Today, and all ways, I remember that God is good orderly direction and that as I practice the presence of God (seek first) I am divinely guided and directed in all that I say and do, and I release the outcomes (fruit) to God knowing it can only be good in Divine Order and Divine Timing.

Please affirm with us, "With God as my source, all I need and desire is readily provided; I relax, let go and let God's good come forth!"


So it is and so it shall be, Amen!


Thank you God, Thank you God, Thank you God!
