INTELLIGENCE



Whatever the nature of any principle may be—in so far as it is understood by anyone—it may be understood by all who take the time to investigate.  This does not require any unusual degree of intelligence, but rather, a practical application of what we now know in order that we may increase our knowledge.  The study of the Science of Mind is a study of First Cause, Spirit, Mind, or that invisible Essence, that ultimate stuff and Intelligence from which everything comes, the Power back of creation—the Thing Itself.  ---Ernest Holmes

The Universe is Intelligence.  Just look at how a flower grows from a little seed.  I am so amazed at the beautiful colors of flowers, the shapes of the petals and leaves.  What creative Intelligence made this?  Wow!

I have knowledge and the ability to reason rationally.  I no longer need to react to events and situations by being fearful.  My intelligence allows me to see circumstances more clearly and to respond with Love.

INTEGRITY



The integrity of the Universe cannot be questioned nor doubted.  The spirit must be, and is, perfect.  That which is back of everything must be good, must be complete must be love and harmony.  When we are out of harmony with some special good, it is because we are off track along that particular line of the activity of Spirit. –Ernest Holmes

I have integrity when I am well.  I take care of myself, I do the right thing, I am doing my perfect work and I love myself at this moment.  I have integrity.

INSPIRATION



With every new inspiration of thought we appropriate something of God.  With every outpouring of life, expressed in faith and good deeds, we are expressing God.  When we associate our breathing with the very Life and Light of God, nothing can retard the flow of life through us.
 –Ernest Holmes

I am inspired to give the best gifts I possibly can.  I give of myself from my heart.  This is inspiration and this makes me feel really good.

INFINITY



No man has ever plumbed the depths of either the conscious or the subjective life.  In both directions, we reach out to Infinity, and since we cannot encompass Infinity, we shall always be expanding and always enlarging our capacity to know and to experience.  –Ernest Holmes

The Universe is infinite.  There is infinite Power, infinite Love, and infinite abundance.  There is always more than enough to go around because infinity means that there is always more.  I will never run out of Love because Love is Infinite.

INDIVIDUAL



Individuality must be spontaneous; it can never be automatic.  The seed of freedom must be planted in the inner-most being of man, but, like the Prodigal Son, man must make the great discovery for himself.  –Ernest Holmes

We are all one and individualized.  I have an individual path.  I follow my path and the path is mine alone.  By myself I take the next step and the next.  Each step is my own decision.  My destination is Unity with all; to go beyond separation; to be completely individualized and yet one with the Universal and equal with all.

IMMORTALITY



Furthermore, the mystics have taught the ultimate salvation of all people and the immortality of every soul.  Indeed, they have taught that IMMORTALITY IS HERE AND NOW, IF WE WOULD BUT AWAKE TO THE FACT.—Ernest Holmes

I am Spirit which is infinite.  Sometimes, when I am in a bad mood I feel like I’m losing something—or I’ve lost something.  But the more I bring myself back to center and realize that the things I thought I wanted were not really very important.  What is important is deep at the center of my being.  There is always this place I can come back to—that which has never changed and can never go away or die.  It lives forever; it’s immortal.

IMAGINATION



Things are ideas in form.  What else could they be?  There is nothing from which to make things except ideas.  In the beginning, we behold nothing visible; there is only an Infinite Possibility, a Limitless Imagination, a Consciousness—the only action of this Consciousness being idea.
--Ernest Holmes

My imagination is rich with ideas and creative solutions.  I am grateful for my imagination.  I am always using my imagination and my creativity when making my art—it is very fun!  But I release my imagination when I want to relax and focus on this present moment.
