NATURE



Nature seems to await our comprehension of her and, since she is governed by immutable laws—the ignorance of which excuses no man from their effects—the bondage of humanity must be a result of our ignorance of the true nature of Reality.  –Ernest Holmes

I am in touch with nature because I am part of nature just as the trees, the flowers, the water, the air and the animals are part of nature.  I am an integral part of it all.

MOVEMENT



It is evident that the movement back of the objective world must be a subjective movement—a movement of consciousness.  –Ernest Holmes

I experience movement as I go on and do the next thing and then the next thing.  I move forward in my life, on my path.  I also find the time to practice being still and to practice listening.  This makes my movement much easier.

MONEY






I always have an abundance of money and an abundance of whatever it takes to make life happy and opulent.  There is a continuous movement toward me of supply, of money, of all that I need to express the fullest life, happiness and action.  –Ernest Holmes

Money, money, money---I love money!  I attract more money all the time.  I like to have money so I can live comfortably, pay the bills and buy fun things.  I always have enough because the Universe always provides everything I need.  I give money out and money returns to me.  I am abundant with money!

MODERATION



Within reasonable limits; avoiding excesses or extremes; temperate or restrained

There is so much to experience in life that I must learn to make wise choices.  I choose to enjoy everything that contributes to my health and happiness.  If I find myself indulging in any one thing to an extreme then I need to step back and find the activities that will give me balance.   
I practice taking the middle of the road and do everything in moderation.

MIRACLE



To the average person, when a result is obtained by this method of work, it looks as though a miracle has happened, but such is not the case.  It is only a miracle as everything else in life is a miracle.  A definite, conscious idea has been set in motion in the Subjective World which accepts ideas at their own valuation and tends to act upon them.—Ernest Holmes

All of Life is a miracle.  It’s a miracle when some unexpected wonderful thing happens and everyone says,” Wow!”  It’s a miracle that we are here on earth and we are alive and breathing.  There are nothing but miracles!

MIND



We must instill into the mind the fundamental proposition that good is without bounds.  Only good and loving-kindness shall “follow me all the days of my life.” (Psalms 23)—Ernest Holmes

My individual mind is part of the greater Universal mind.  All beings are part of this greater mind.  I can draw on this larger Intelligence anytime by becoming quiet and listening.

MEDITATION



From selfish reasons alone, if from no loftier reason, we cannot afford to find fault, to hate, or even to hold in mind anything against any living soul!  The God of love cannot hear the prayer of the one who fails to love.  In our meditation for friendship let us make our unity with all people, with all life.—Ernest Holmes

My meditation today is looking for the good in what already is right now.   I let go of the outside world and I listen; I find my grounding and I know that Life is unfolding perfectly.
