Comfort

My innate DIVINITY is my comfort.

I sometimes move out of my comfort zone in response to my life experiences. The first day at a new school, starting or leaving a job, a new phase in a relationship, retiring from a career, the passing of a loved one – my response to any change may range from mild discomfort to even grief.

My innate DIVINITY consists of the universal PRINCIPLES of LIFE, LOVE, WISDOM and much more. THEY are my constant resource for comfort through all of life’s changes. I find assurance that, although life’s physical expression may change, it can never end. I know oneness and love with all who have been dear to me. Recognizing my DIVINE NATURE, I know there is no loss, change, or circumstance that can limit me; I find comfort in this deep knowing.

My innate DIVINITY is my comfort.

Blessing Fathers

I am grateful for all

expressions of fatherly love.

My relationship with my father may have been positive and nurturing or difficult and challenging. He may have been a strong presence during my childhood, or he may have been absent. We may be part of each other’s lives today, we may be estranged, or he may have passed from earthly life. Whatever our circumstances, I bless my father. He  and everyone is DIVINE LOVE.

As I honor my father, I also honor all the father figures who have helped guide me along my path. Family members, teachers, neighbors, clergy, employers, and friends—I bless them as I recall all the ways each one, in a unique way, has modeled strength, guidance, wisdom, and patience. Their presence remains with me thanks to their  showering me with fatherly love.

I am grateful for all

expressions of fatherly love.

Order

LAW underwrites order in my life and the world.

Spiritual LAWS and natural LAWS are ”cut from the same cloth.” They are DIVINE, not because God made them but because they are God. God is PRINCIPLE; LAW is PRINCIPLE in action.

Charles Fillmore said, “Order is the first law of the universe. Indeed, there could be no universe unless its various parts were kept in perfect harmony” (Mysteries of Genesis, p. 241). LAW underwrites the order demonstrated in the universe.

I notice patterns and order in the universe and the world around me. Everything is orderly because of underpinning LAW, known and unknown.

I notice patterns in my life. As the seasons of nature change, so do the seasons of my life. Even when it is not apparent to me, I know my life is always orderly because of LAW.

LAW underwrites order in my life and the world.

Joy!

Joy is my constant companion.

I discover reasons to feel joyful every day, even in the most challenging circumstances. I begin by centering my awareness on my DIVINITY and the PRINCIPLE of JOY it contains. Well-being, success, good fortune and possibilities fill my thoughts When I am joyful.

I may experience joy as exuberance, delight, and wonder. Joy may also come quietly with the peaceful realization of my DIVINITY wherever I am, whatever I’m doing. My awareness of joy brings a glow to even the most ordinary day.

As I engage wholeheartedly in all that is mine to do today, I share my joy with everyone. Through kind words, a sunny smile, and a warm welcome to everyone I meet, I radiate joy and bless the world with my positivity, happiness, and bliss.

Joy is my constant companion.

LOVE

 I am a loving presence to everyone I meet.

Charles Fillmore said, “GOD is LOVE, … the great heart of the universe and of humankind, from which is drawn forth all feeling, sympathy, emotion, and all that goes to make up the joys of existence.” (adapted, Jesus Christ Heals, p. 27)

It has been said that the world needs more love. The TRUTH is, GOD is the universal PRINCIPLE containing all PRINCIPLES. One of those PRINCIPLES is LOVE. IT is “omnipresent,” maximal and always available: IT is the unchanging, unlimited resource I use to desire, harmonize,  unify and be loving.

Another PRINCIPLE is BENEVOLENCE which I express as my ability to be well-meaning. Used with LOVE, I find the good in everyone and everything. I look beyond conflict and limitation and find the good that is always mine to discover.

I am a loving presence to everyone I meet.

 FAITH

I use my POWER of FAITH; I believe in good.

“[Jesus] looked up and saw rich people putting their gifts into the treasury; he also saw a poor widow put in two small copper coins. He said, ‘Truly I tell you, this poor widow has put in more than all of them; for all of them have contributed out of their abundance, but she out of her poverty has put in all she had to live on. (Luke 21:1-4)’” The widow had faith.

My POWER of FAITH is more valuable than money.  I use IT to believe. I am an “apocaloptimist!” I believe and trust I can always manifest good and blessings from any event or experience … no matter the appearance. I act on my belief. My positively directed realized faith brings rich rewards in consciousness.

I use my POWER of FAITH; I believe in good.

Use PRINCIPLE

I consciously use PRINCIPLE.

Unity cofounder, Charles Fillmore, said, “By the term MIND, we mean GOD – the “universal PRINCIPLE which contains all principles (The Revealing Word).”  When faced with a decision, do I only rely on my senses, repetitive thinking and feeling? OR, do I remember to consciously use God… use PRINCIPLE?

PRINCIPLES are my foundation; I use them to express my personality, my body and everything else I create.  Principles are as near as my next thought because, whether conscious of it or not, every thought I create is based on PRINCIPLE.

I release my “seeming” dependence on my senses, repetitive thinking and feeling. I center my mind and heart on the constant presence of PRINCIPLE including LOVE, UNDERSTANDING, WILL WISDOM, and STRENGTH. I find answers to questions. New possibilities for good emerge. I move forward with confidence.

 I consciously use PRINCIPLE.

Blessing Mothers

I bless and honor all mothers; I am grateful for their love.

I bless my mother and all mothers. I am grateful for their nurturing love. My mother’s love lives in my heart just as her wisdom resonates in my mind, whether she has passed on or is still with me in this dimension.

I feel deep appreciation and tender affection for those who bless me with their selfless gift of motherly love. I would not be who I am without them.

I share the blessings of a mother’s care and devotion. I embrace opportunities for sharing affirming thoughts, encouraging words, smiles, and/or simple acts of kindness.

GOD is the PRINCIPLE of LOVE! I honor all mothers when I use LOVE to express all my feelings of love, sympathy, and compassion.

I bless and honor all mothers; I am grateful for their love.

World Peace

I contribute to world peace.

When I learn of conflict in my community or in the world, my response may be frustration, sadness, or anger. If I have those feelings, I remember that in addition to being human, I am DIVINE; I am fundamentally all that God is. I use my DIVINE FACULTIES of WISDOM, UNDERSTANDING, and LOVE with the PRINCIPLE of PEACE to create abiding peace in me.

Centered in the PRINCIPLE of PEACE, I realize that every person is as human and DIVINE as I am. As differences dissolve in a way that transcends human understanding, I experience oneness with all the world’s people. This inner realization shapes my response to every person and every situation. In my awareness of oneness with all people, my thoughts, words, and actions contribute to world peace.

 I contribute to world peace.

Release

I release all that does not contribute to my highest good.

John’s gospel tells of Jesus’ restoring life to his friend Lazarus, who had been dead four days. As Jesus cries, “Lazarus, come out!” his friend emerges from the tomb, burial cloths still covering his face and wrapped around his hands and feet. Jesus says to those who have gathered, “Unbind him, and let him go.”

Even after a spiritual resurrection, I may remain bound, like Lazarus, by my thoughts, ideas, feelings, habits or actions keeping me from the full experience of freedom. Using my DIVINE POWER of ELIMINATION, I release error thoughts, dissolve negative feelings, and free myself from habits and actions that do not serve my highest good. I am no longer bound. I am free!

I release all that does not contribute to my highest good.
