"You can't depend on your eyes
when your imagination is out of focus."
Mark Twain

"We believe the whole account (of Jesus birth,) because we know that the Christ comes not by sense testimony; we know that He comes as a spiritual, invisible Presence, and that the imaging power of the mind must necessarily build up figures by which to convey the idea of His coming within." Myrtle Fillmore, How to Let God Help You

"So we find that the simple and universally intelligible avenue of visions and dreams, the work of the imagination, was adopted as an important means by which the believers were instructed and called together." Charles Fillmore, Twelve Powers of Man

"The mind held in the Presence of Pure Spirit will find itself thinking more clearly, its ambitions simplified, its means wisely adapted to the ends sought just because its 'Imagination is stayed' on the permanent powers and influences of life." Ella Pomeroy, Powers of the Soul

"Imagine if you will, a great reservoir, out of which leads innumerable small rivulets or channels. At its farther end each channel opens out into a small fountain. This fountain is not only being continually filled and replenished from the reservoir, but is itself a radiating center from whence is given out in all directions that which it receives, so that all who come within its radius are refreshed and blessed. That is exactly our relation to God." H. Emilie Cady, Lessons In Truth

"Saul got up from the ground, and though his eyes were open, he could see nothing.'" Acts 9:8

 Today we continue awakening to our Spiritual Faculty of Imagination. Imagination is a power, or spiritual faculty, that is inherent within us. We have Imagination; our Imagination 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 Imagination faculty today? When have I felt connected,inspired and creative? 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 Imagination in expression and that we are divinely guided, directed and protected as we receive and share imagination in all that we do and say this day.

Please affirm with us, "God is Imagination, I image new and creative ways of doing that which is mine to do; I am open, receptive and responsive to the Infinite Vision of Christ 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!

"Imagination will often carry us to worlds that never were.
But without it we go nowhere."

Carl Sagan
 
"When you look with your all-seeing, all-discerning eye of faith, you see God's abundance manifesting to meet every need of yours. So practice seeing with this inner eye that beholds the eternal verities of Being." Myrtle Fillmore, How to Let God Help You 

"Those who look to the Holy Spirit for guidance find that its instruction is given to all who believe in Christ, and they are often drawn together by direction of the inner voice, or by a dream, or by a vision." Charles Fillmore, Twelve Powers of Man 

"Imagination is the ability to gather together and re-arrange." Ella Pomeroy, Powers of the Soul 

"The nearer, I say, we approach to God, and the more we grow into the realization of our true relationship to Him, our Father, the more surely are all personalities, all divisions lost sight of; our oneness with all men and women becomes so vivid and real to us that a prayer for "private ends" becomes impossible to us. All desires of the little self are merged in the desire for universal good, because we recognize but one in the universe and ourselves as part of that one." H. Emilie Cady, How I Used Truth 

"When you give alms, do not let your left hand know what your right hand is doing, so that your alms may be done in secret; and your Father who sees in secret will reward you..'" Matthew 6:3,4



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

"Happiness
is not an ideal of
reason,
but of imagination."

Immanuel Kant

"The children of the homes are the ones who really understand the law of the new. By the touch of their untainted imagination the simplest things are transformed into the beautiful and marvelous. If we would consider this we would see that it is not the things themselves, but the thought back of them that gives them significance." Myrtle Fillmore, How to Let God Help You 

"We look upon imaginary things as trivial, yet we know that through the imagination we can produce wonderful changes in the body." Charles Fillmore, Twelve Powers of Man

"There is a place attainable by us where we see that our doing can cease because Spirit is the fulfillment of all our desires. We simply "be still and know" that all things whatsoever we desire are ours already; and this knowing it or recognizing it has power to bring the invisible God (or good) who is the innermost substance of all things, forth into just the visible form of good we want." H. Emilie Cady, Lessons In Truth 

"And he answered them, ‘Go and tell John what you have seen and heard: the blind receive their sight, the lame walk, the lepers are cleansed, the deaf hear, the dead are raised, the poor have good news brought to them.'" Luke 7:22

Imagination will take you everywhere."
Albert Einstein

"When the way seems dark, pray for spiritual illumination and guidance, and bring all your thought people into the light. You will become a radiant center of light, joy & optimism." Myrtle Fillmore, How to Let God Help You

"God made man in His image and likeness. Man, in turn, is continually making and sending forth into his mind, his body, and the world about him living thought forms embodied and indued with his whole character." Charles Fillmore, Twelve Powers of Man

"Imagination is the Power to gather known thoughts or thought-forms together into different, and new, arrangements; and to hold so firmly to the new form that it finally gets itself into manifestation in the outer world." Ella Pomeroy, Powers of the Soul

"All things that we desire are now in being in the spiritual or invisible. But thought and the spoken word stand between the invisible and the visible. By the action of these two, thought and the spoken word, is the invisible made visible.'" H. Emilie Cady, How I Used Truth

"Finally, beloved, whatever is true, whatever is honourable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is pleasing, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence and if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things." Philippians 4:8

You imagine what you desire, you will what you imagine
and at last you create what you will."

George Bernard Shaw

"It is through the imagination that the formless takes form." Charles Fillmore, Twelve Powers of Man 

"Imagination is generally conceded to be the Power of bringing things together in the mind, and to produce new conditions, circumstances, environments, and associations, it is evidently the Power too 'conceive,' or, according to Latin roots, to become pregnant with, to take into one's mind, to comprehend." Ella Pomeroy, Powers of the Soul 

"I stayed at home within my own soul and asked God to show me the way. He did. He gave me the clear vision of Himself as All Sufficiency in All Things; and then He said: 'Now prove it...'" H. Emilie Cady, How I Used Truth 

"‘Very truly, I tell you, you will see heaven opened and the angels of God ascending and descending upon the Son of Man.’" John 1:51

not by angels or by demons, heaven or hell.

"Power, then, is our Power to connect with an unremitting activity (God) which is at work in the world, is ready to do our will, is unlimited in its possibilities." Ella Pomeroy, Powers of the Soul 

"This matter of trusting the Christ within to do all things for us, realizing that we are one with Him and that to Him is given all power, is not something which comes to any of us spontaneously. It comes by persistent effort on our part." H. Emilie Cady, How I Used Truth 

"Jesus called the twelve together and gave them power and authority over all demons and to cure diseases, and he sent them out to proclaim the kingdom of God and to heal." Luke 9:1-2

"'Of mine own self [that is, of the mortal}, I can do nothing; the Father in me, he doeth the works.' He is the ever-present Power to overcome all errors, sickness, weakness, ignorance, or whatever they may be.

Ella Pomeroy, Powers of the Soul

"Jesus answered, ‘The first is, “Hear, O Israel: the Lord our God, the Lord is one; you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind, and with all your strength.” The second is this, “You shall love your neighbour as yourself.” There is no other commandment greater than these.’" Mark 12:29-31

Today we are awakening to our Spiritual Faculty of Love. Love is a power, or spiritual faculty, that is inherent within us. We have Love; our Love 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 love faculty today? When have I felt connected, open and receptive? 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 Love in expression and that we are divinely guided, directed and protected as we give and receive love in all that we do and say this day.

Please affirm with us, "God is Love, I am loved and loving; I am open, receptive and responsive to the Infinite Spirit of Light and Love; I now choose to be happy, healthy, whole and free, just as God created me to be!"
