ORDER



The Universe, both visible and invisible, is a Spiritual System.  Man is a part of this spiritual Order, so indivisible united with It that the entire Cosmos is (or may be) reflected in his mind!
--Ernest Holmes

Every aspect of my life is an opportunity to create order.  I create order in my health by exercising and by eating nourishing foods in appropriate portions.  I create order by taking care of my house and making it a beautiful home.  I create order in my work by making great art quilts, and keeping my studio organized so I know where everything is.  I create order by communication with family and friends.  Creating order for myself is healing for all.

OPEN



I know I am now at the threshold of all good, wisdom and Truth.  All the good I can embody is now mine.  I have only to open the portals of my soul and accept that which is ready to express through me.
 –Ernest Holmes

Today, I open the door to peace and love.  I am an artist, but my first job is loving me.  The door is open and I am going through the door.

ONENESS



The man who clearly realizes his Oneness with all good should have strong, clear eyesight!
--Ernest Holmes

Oneness, the Unity of all life is peace, the end of suffering.  It is understanding and communication connecting in integrity and wholeness.  It is infinite balance, equality; the blending of all things into Universal Peace, World Peace, Life Itself.  There is no separation, no war, no resistance, no beginning, and no end forever and ever in infinity, eternal light, eternal Life.  Forgiving; Hearts and Hands, creating, building Bridges.

ONE



…in spirit, man is One with God.  But what of the great Law of the Universe?  If we are really One with the Whole, we must be One with the Law of the Whole, as well as One with the Spirit of the Whole. –Ernest Holmes

I am one with the Universe.  I am a part of nature. I am one unique human being.  There are billions of unique humans on this planet; at least it appears this way.  But there is only One Life.

OCEAN



We recognize, then, in man’s self-knowing mind his Unity with the whole, for a drop of water is not the ocean, yet it does contain within itself all the attributes of the limitless deep.
—Ernest Holmes

The ocean is so huge and has seemingly infinite waves which are constantly changing all the time.  It contains many fish and sea creatures, and perhaps unknown species.  It is a world unto itself.

NOURISH



In my physical body there is only room for perfection, because that thought which is sustaining and nourishing my body is aware only of perfection, nothing can come into being except from the One Creative Mind, and nothing can flourish unless there is something to nourish it.
 –Ernest Holmes

I nourish myself by eating healthy foods and by exercising my body, organizing my environment, spending time with loving people, walking in nature, reading spiritual books and practicing my creativity through making my artwork.

NONRESISTANCE



“The meek shall inherit the earth.”  This is a teaching of non-resistance.  War lords and plunderers of human possessions have come and gone.  Kingdoms have risen only to crumble in dust and become numbered with past events….To whom have our artists turned for inspiration and that quickening power which enables them to depict the ideal?  Not to the war lords, nor even the captains of industry, but to the meek.—Ernest Holmes

Today, I release all resistance to my good.  I let go of any left over anger, sadness or worry.  I let go of the past or the future.  This day, I allow the present moment to fill me with the Love of God.  I resist nothing.  I allow my good to flow in me, through me and as me.  By practicing nonresistance, I allow my life to unfold and I enjoy each moment.  I’m going with the flow.  I’m feeling the energy of the Universe.  Things happen; good, bad, right, wrong—I release judgment and I stay centered, practicing moderation, and focusing on my goals.  Nonresistance helps me stay in the flow and in the know!
