I create and mold my own reality!

"Creative power, is that receptive attitude of expectancy which makes a mold
into which the plastic and as yet undifferentiated substance can flow and
take the desired form."
~Thomas Troward

Affirmative Prayer:
In this space I call reality, I recognize the perfect form of Spirit in all
things. God is my co-creator. As I offer myself up to Its perfect creative
power, I know that I am One with it, now and always. It is all there is, and
I know that I am an extension of It. Spirit is my every thought, and every
movement. As I think my thought, I know Spirit is there kneeding my unformed
thought into a shape consistent with my reality in this moment. It can do no
less. My thoughts are the unformed "things" manifest in my experience, and I
am blessed. How I see them is my choice. I can see the divine sculpture or
the rubble before me. I choose to see the beauty of it all, the peace of it
all and the Love of it all. There is nothing that is not God. Why would I
choose otherwise?
As I allow this to exist in and as me, I am blessed. I thank Spirit for my
life in every way.
And so it is.

I am an Awesome Expression of God's Good!


"The most beautiful thing we can experience is the mysterious. It is the source of all true art and science. He to whom the emotion is a stranger, who can no longer pause and stand wrapped in awe, is as good as dead; his eyes are closed."
~Albert Einstein

Affirmative Prayer:

As I look around me, I see the beauty of my Source in everything I see, touch, taste, smell, and hear. There is nothing It is not. God in everything is God in me. I am always in awe of Its power to express through me as my world. I am humbled that I am a powerful co-creator with Source. I am in unity with this Source of Good in me, and know that as I think my thoughts, Spirit fills my world with the beauty of this One Mind of which I am an individualization. Thank you Spirit

I choose the path that is in conscious expectation of good unfolding. I know my good is my God, and in whatever form it manifests, I see the highest expression of God in It. It's all Good.

I accept my abundance with gratitude. In whatever form it comes, it comes from God. I see no lack, no limitation. I turn lemons to lemonade, and pennies to millions, one at a time. I always choose the greater over the lesser.

My good health is the perfect health of God, in whose image I am formed. I am God's direct experience of this physical world, and I choose to make Its experience a bold adventure. I step out at every turn into the unknown to experience new thoughts, new ideas, and a greater awakening of the higher me, as my world expands before me.

God this is good, this feeling of love. Thank you, Spirit. As I just allow this Love to surround me, I know that it is already done rightly.

And so it is. Amen.

I Am a Reflection of my Inner Being

Men need assurance that the physical life is a reflection of the INNER LIFE,
and that the physical life responds to the INNER LIFE through prayer - - the
speaking of the Word.
~ Benjamin F. Sherman, The Hem of the Garment

Affirmative Prayer:
Know in this moment and every now moment that the one life, the one Truth,
that which is indivisible in my life is that which is of God, my Source,
that infinite body of the universe and even greater than I can imagine. Know
with me that this power is in each and every atom and cell of our bodies, of
mine and of yours and that this source of all things is that through which I
think, speak, feel, and know.

In knowing this I know that this power in me creates with such conscious
action that my life as I see it must be the perfect result. My thoughts by
my inner communication with source are the out-picturing I call my life. It
can be no less. I am perfect as me. My Word is my bond. I I am that which I
see myself to be. I am That. I am the out-picturing of my thoughts and I am
just as I see me. I choose all Good. I choose all perfect Source creating
through me as grand a life as I can accept. I accept it all. I know there is
only good in this and my world. I know this Good is mine unconditionally. I
accept it in style, in form and in idea.
I am blessed in all that I am.
Thank you Spirit,
And so it is.

On love

I don't have a TV. The little news and info I get, I get from being online. I'm already staring at a screen too much, so I'm glad I don't have a TV. And I read a lot more, which I love.

I digress.

I heard about Osama the day after it happened, much later, and I went to CNN.Com to get the skinny.

Tuned into a replay of Obama's address to the nation about the tactical operation, blah, blah, blah. I was saddened by what seemed like a need to justifythe killing of another human being in order that someone might feel like they would have closure. The bizarre thing is that closure at the elimination of one person will be short lived for those seeking this superficial closure when the next bomb goes off or the next attack takes place.

The cancer of hate, of religious bigotry and racial supremacy will continue to fester until each of us is willing to do a serious self-examination of who and what we are, truly. Everytime we kill someone else, we kill a little of ourselves. We have taken God out of the picture, because the ACLU puts the different religion's Gods at odds. So, we fight our wars to bring democracy to the world, but what are we? One nation under God. Is that really who says our way of life is best? Are we even a democracy? Do our legislators really do what's right for our country?

OK, I did it again. The point is, the Source of all there is, God or whatever you want to call it, manifested each and every one of us out of nothing. We are energy coming into existence, and that energy is God. We are all the livingness of God. When we kill another, we diminish ourselves just a little bit by negatively de-energizing another. God is Love. We are love. We are the microcosm of the macrocosm.

When will we realize there is no right way or wrong way? There is only The Way, and Peace is The Way, the only way. The only loving way.

Conscious Awareness


"Everywhere we look in nature. Our eyes come in contact with abundance; for nature knows no such thing as "failure."  Therefore, there never has been, and there never will be, a lack of anything, except conscious-awareness."
~ Bob Proctor


I have the consciousness to create all things new.

Affirmative Prayer:

There is only One life, this life is Universal Divine Energy, and this life is my life, now and always.
As I open to this truth of nature, the world and the Universe, I naturally open to my abundance. As I awaken to the conscious awareness that I am blessed and surrounded by the natural opulence of the world, I allow the small ideas, the limiting ideas, and the less-than ideas to fall away as I open my arms and just allow the greater goodness of all that surrounds me to be attracted into my experience. With God, I create all things new. Infinite good is mine, Infinite love, infinite joy, infinite self-expression. I say, "Yes! I am blessed!" and God, I am grateful for all the little and big things I am attracting in my life, for I AM life. And as I learn just how to accept this good, in this moment, I am able to accept more and more, easily and effortlessly. And it is good, all good. And I allow it to be.

And so it is.
