DAWN


The Christ triumphs over death and the grave breaking through the tomb of human limitation into the dawn of eternal expansion.  –Ernest Holmes

Dawn is the beginning of the day.  The sun is coming up and warming our part of the planet.  When a new idea dawns on me, that idea is a beginning.  Each moment of my life is a new beginning, a new dawn.  In each moment, each dawn, I can release the old and begin again, fresh.

CREATIVITY


Behind the individual is the Universal, which has no limits.  In this concept alone lies the possibility of eternal and endless expansion.  Everyone is Universal on the subjective side of life, and individual only at the point of conscious perception.  The riddle is solved, and we all use the creative power of the Universal Mind every time we use our own mind.

Something within me has ideas.  Something within me finds solutions.  Something within me answers a need.  Something within me knows what to do next.  I can also use my creativity destructively.  Today, I choose to use the powerful tool of creativity in a positive, constructive way.  Making artwork is a beautiful way to use it.

CREATIVE


Within us, then, there is a creative field, which we call the subjective mind; around us there is a creative field which we call Subjective.  One is universal and the other is individual. But in reality, they are one.  There is one mental Law in the Universe, and where we use it, it becomes our law because we have individualized it.—Ernest Holmes

I am creative by nature.  The trick to being creative is to put the creativity to good use.

CREAGEOUS


God’s Creative Power of Mind is right here.  We have as much of this power as we believe in and embody.  –Ernest Holmes

I have the courage to express and share my creativity.  I listen to my inner voice and I proceed to move forward, one moment at a time doing whatever Spirit moves me to do or say.  I write down all of my ideas.  I prioritize them and I express them one at a time in the precious present moment.  I tap into my Spiritual Creativity and I spontaneously express the work that is mine to do.  I am Creageous!

COURAGE


The attitude of facing and dealing with anything recognized as dangerous, difficult, or painful, instead of withdrawing from it, quality of being fearless or brave; valor www.YourDictionary.com

Rather that resisting the difficult aspects of my life and rather than avoiding doing those things that I am afraid of, I can choose to have the courage to move forward and go for what I want.  I do not let fear win!  I accept the courage I already have within me and I go for the gold!

COSMIC


We observe in creation an atomic intelligence, then a simple consciousness; after which comes a personal consciousness, then a Cosmic consciousness.—Ernest Holmes

The Universe is Cosmic.  My Universal Consciousness is my Cosmic Consciousness.  I can tap into this Infinite Intelligence at any time to receive the guidance I need.  I listen to the Cosmic Spirit within me.

COOPERATION

Every day and every hour we are meeting the eternal realities of life, and in such degree as we cooperate with these eternal realities in love, in peace, in wisdom and in joy—believing and receiving—we are automatically blessed. Our prayer is answered before it is uttered.
—Ernest Holmes

I am self reliant and yet I am not alone.  I am willing to work with others on a team.  No big project or event can happen with just one person.  My art quilts are created by me with the help of all of the teachers I have ever had; with the help of fabric manufacturers, as well as paint, beads, buttons, batting thread, sewing machines, studio, quilts, too, etc.—all created by teams of people.  I cooperate by being a part of it all.  When I market my work, I agree by cooperating with the way the market works and I price my art according to what the market will bear.  I connect with people who can help me sell the work and with those who will buy it.  I cooperate.
