December 31, 2015 - "THE FLOW OF LIFE!" 

"Life is a series of natural and spontaneous changes.
Don't resist them - that only creates sorrow.
Let reality be reality.
Let things flow naturally forward in whatever way they like."
Lao Tzu

"In the beginning Love, Good, and Life created the thoughts that people my world. Peace flows through it as a river; glory and gladness roof its skies; joy and health are the morning and evening stars; willing service is the moon that follows after the great sun of righteousness; understanding is the soil where springs forth the beauty of action. The angel that guards the Eden of my world is purity of thought. My love of life is absolute knowledge of Truth." Myrtle Fillmore, How to Let God Help You

"When Jesus said, 'I am the resurrection, and the life,' He was telling of the power of the Christ Mind to enter the mind and the body of man as quickening Spirit to awaken the whole consciousness to the knowledge of God." Charles Fillmore, Twelve Powers of Man

"Life is not static; it is full of movement, vitality; in its highest expression it will have eliminated all restrictions and will move free and clean, a God-Power of delight." Ella Pomeroy, Powers Of The Soul

"Working as God works does not weary, for then the current of unlimited Divine Life is always flowing through us anew to bless others." H. Emilie Cady, How I Used Truth

"Then the angel showed me the river of the water of life, bright as crystal, flowing from the throne of God and of the Lamb through the middle of the street of the city. On either side of the river is the tree of life with its twelve kinds of fruit, producing its fruit each month; and the leaves of the tree are for the healing of the nations." Rev. 21:1-2

This month we are awakening to our Spiritual Faculty of Life. Life is a power, or spiritual faculty, that is inherent within us. We have Life; our Life expresses in proportion to our beliefs about ourselves and our willingness to connect with the greater reality, God, through the Holy Spirit: "the activity of God-Mind in the consciousness of man" (Myrtle Fillmore.)

We continue daily with our self-observations: How have I been expressing my Life faculty today? When have I felt free, open and receptive for life and living? When have I felt otherwise. Where was I looking for guidance: in the outer, personal, sense conscious or in the inner, trans-personal, spirit conscious?

We continue to choose again. We choose to go forward with confident assurance that we are God Life in expression and that we are divinely guided, directed and protected as we receive and share Life in all that we do and say this day.

Please affirm with us, "God is Life, I am alive, alert, awake and enthusiastic for life and living; I now choose to be happy, healthy, whole and free, just as God created me to be!"

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

For so it is and so it shall be, Amen!

 

 

December 24, 2015 - "A PURPOSE FOR LIFE!' 

"Our prime purpose in this life is to help others.
And if you can't help them, at least don't hurt them."

"There is little comfort to be gotten out of our struggles with experience here, if they count for nothing; but shown the golden purpose that links our efforts and struggles with life's ascending spiral, we feel that we belong above and not below, and are reconciled with climbing." Myrtle Fillmore, How to Let God Help You

it is all within yourself,
in your way of thinking."
Marcus Aurelius

December 10, 2015 - "SIMPLE LIFE!"

"Life is really simple,
but we insist on making it complicated."

"A change in ideas must necessarily produce a change in the body, and there is a perfect response in every center of consciousness when Spirit has been welcomed as the rightful inhabitant of the body." Charles Fillmore, Twelve Powers of Man 

"All the Powers of the human mind and Soul are engaged in 'living'; we are part of the vast stream of Life that runs through and permeates, supports and maintains this earth." Ella Pomeroy, Powers Of The Soul

"When the ego consciously lets go and willingly gives up its cherished ideals and loves, it has fulfilled the law of denial and is again restored to the Father's house." Charles Fillmore, Twelve Powers of Man

"The story of mankind is the story of improved physical, mental and spiritual conditions; or, to put it another way, the story of the Elimination of difficulty in order that achievement might be won." Ella Pomeroy, Powers of the Soul

"Nothing is real which is not eternal; and all conditions of apparent evil, of sickness, poverty, fear, and so forth, are not things, not entities in themselves, but they are simply an absence of the opposite Good, just as darkness is the absence of light." H. Emilie Cady, How I Used Truth

Where was I looking for guidance: in the outer, personal, sense conscious or in the inner, trans-personal, spirit conscious?

We continue to choose again. We choose to go forward with confident assurance that we are God Renunciation in expression and that we are divinely guided, directed and protected as we receive and share Renunciation in all that we do and say this day.

Please affirm with us, "God is Renunciation, I am filled with Renunciation and I release all that does not serve God or good; I am open, receptive and responsive to the Infinite Spirit of God in me; I now choose to be happy, healthy, whole and free, just as God created me to be!"

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

For so it is and so it shall be, Amen!

in order to come to a higher understanding of reality."
Thich Nhat Hanh

November 4, 2015 - "FEARLESS RENUNCIATION!"

"Everything is fraught with fear:
Renunciation alone is fearless."

October 28, 2015 - "CREATIVITY & ENTHUSIASM"
