God wills us to have everything. As we express life, we fulfill God’s law of abundance, but we do this only as we realize that there is good enough, to go around—only, as we know that all of God’s gifts are given as freely and fully as the air and the sunshine… alike to all. ---Ernest Holmes

I see myself in fulfillment. I am perfect and complete right now. I am doing the work that I love with people that I love and who love me. I am well compensated for what I do. I am getting the results I want and these results are for the greatest benefit for myself and others., I accept my life the way it is and I love myself the way I am right now. I accept fulfillment at this moment. I am fulfilled.

I understand all people and this understanding is reflected back to me from all. I give friendship and therefore I have friends. I help, therefore I am helped. I uplift therefore I am uplifted. I am now surrounded by all love, all friendship, all companionship, all health, all happiness, all success.—Ernest Holmes

In life, people come and go. Some are my friends for a short while and others are long term friends. I can make the decision to always be a friend to myself and to keep all of my friends in my heart forever. Friendship is a quality that I cultivate.

The relationship between the individual and the Universal Mind is one of reflection. That is, what we image for ourselves, It images for us. Then it follows that the very law which created bondage could as easily create freedom. The Divine intends freedom for us but the very fact that we have creative thought, and that we are real individuals, presupposes the use of our creativeness in more than one way.—Ernest Holmes

When all of the extra things are out of the way; that is when I have freedom. Freedom is when my mind is clear and I really know what I want. I am free to choose for my self because there are no old, self limiting beliefs in my mind; old voices telling me that I am not good enough, smart enough, big enough pretty enough, talented enough to really have what I want. I am now free and clear. I am strong, I am intelligent. I have the faith of God in my heart. God wants me to have freedom so I choose to have it right here and right now. I choose to be free, healthy wealthy and wise. I choose Love. I have freedom of choice. I accept my right to vote.

Spiritual experience is a fact. Spirituality may be defined as an atmosphere of good, the realization of God. It cannot—and does not—borrow its light from another, no matter how great or noble that other may be. It springs from within, coming from that never-failing fountain of life, which quenches every thirst, whose Source is in eternity; the well-spring of self-existence. It is a revelation of the self to the self putting one back on the track of his own self-dependence on Spirit, his own at-one-ment with Reality.—Ernest Holmes

The energy of the Universe is like an infinite fountain continuously flowing, flowing flowing. This fountain is flowing through me right now. If I set my judgments aside, I experience more and more of the flowing of the fountain of the Universe.

The Truth will out; the Spirit will make Itself known. Happy are we if we see these things which, from the foundation of the human race, have been longed for by all aspiring souls.—Ernest Holmes

All of my work is based on thoughts of Love and Peace. I like to stay in touch with my roots. I have made a commitment to this. I have made a commitment to a foundation of integrity.

We realize that since our understanding is not yet complete, it is legitimate to use all methods which will help troubled humanity, but we do look forward to the day when Truth alone will answer every need! --Ernest Holmes

I am noticing that when I really listen, follow my guidance and move forward with my next step, my energy flows and feels good and healing.

…forgiveness is eternal and ever available. What a load is dropped from the shoulders of personal responsibility when we realize that the Eternal Mind holds naught against anyone!

—Ernest Holmes

Forgiveness implies that there is something to forgive—like there is some sin committed. When I am angry and I want to blame someone, I am so grateful for the tool of forgiveness. If I can change my thinking enough to consider forgiveness, then I am on my way to peace of mind. I am closer to being able to love unconditionally.

Experience has taught us that the subjective tendency of this intelligent Law of creative force may consciously be directed and definitely used. –Ernest Holmes

The Force is flowing through me and expressing as me to create good in the world!

To concentrate means to bring to a center, and in Mental Science it means focusing the mental attention on some definite and desired thought, image, idea or thing. –Ernest Holmes

I work on lots of different projects, but sometimes I’ll need to finish something or get the job done so I will focus on one chunk at a time until everything comes together in completion. When I get quiet and still, then I can focus my mind and feel complete within myself. I have inner focus and outer focus.

Most of us seek the cause in the effect and unknowingly put the cart before the horse, not realizing that the flower is already in the seed, and that effects must follow causes. There can be no true alliance apart from life and no good apart from a unity with the Whole.—Ernest Holmes

I like to think of my life as a garden that I take care of. I plant seeds, I pull weeds, and I water each flower with loving care. It’s similar to having new ideas, letting go of old patterns and caring about what happens.

The intelligence by and through which we perceive that there is a Spiritual Presence and an Infinite Mind in the Universe, constitutes our receptivity to It, and decides Its flow through us.

--Ernest Holmes

I let go of resistance and I go with the flow of energy. That’s how I move through life and make good things happen.

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. Accordingly, I know that my thought does not sustain any false growth, either consciously or unconsciously originated. –Ernest Holmes

I practice right thinking, for example, I think about abundance, prosperity, joy, love, good health, wisdom, preparedness. With this kind of thinking, I flourish and grow, like a beautiful flower.

(adjective) extended meanings, capable of change; “a flexible character”; “flexible schedules”

I am working on goals for things I want. I want certain solutions and I am pursuing, but the world does not always flow the way I think it should toward the goal I have in mind. So I have learned to be flexible, to listen to my guidance, to bend without breaking and to find ways that work for all concerned.


Tuesday, August 17, 2010


With good-natured flexibility, free your thought from any sense of anxiety or strain, or indecision, or deep-seated worry and concern, knowing that you have only to keep your thought steady and clear, fixed upon the potential perfection of the universe in which we live. –Ernest Holmes

I practice yoga everyday to maintain health and flexibility in my body. I practice meditation to maintain health and flexibility in my mind.

We live in a Universe of Love as well as a Universe of Law. One is the complement of the other—the Universe of Love pulsating with feeling, with emotion, and the Universe of Law, the Executor of all feeling and all emotion. –Ernest Holmes

I have a close friendship with a certain person who has a habit of pushing my buttons. I am getting much better at not reacting. Lately, I realized that the reactions are just old thoughts and have nothing to do with this present reality. When I go within and observe the real feeling, I notice that I only feel love.

The subjective mind is the seat of memory and contains a remembrance of everything that has ever happened to the outer man. It also contains the family and race characteristics. It retains these memories, in a certain sense, as mental pictures. The subjective mind might be compared to a picture gallery, upon whose walls are hung pictures of all the people whom the individual has ever known, and all the incidents which he has ever experienced. –Ernest Holmes

The people closest to me are my family. My mother, father, sisters, brothers, grandparents, sons, daughters, best friends, lovers, husbands, wives; anyone who I connect deeply with—that’s my family; those are the people I really care about. I really care about all people and all the creatures on earth. I care about the earth itself. It’s all one!

If one will have faith in himself, faith in his fellowmen, in the Universe, and in God, that faith will light the place in which he finds himself, and by the light of this faith, he will be able to see that ALL IS GOOD. And the light shed by this faith will light the way for others. –Ernest Holmes

Faith is the opposite of fear. I practice Faith by affirming that all is well. The Universe wants for me to have a good life. If I believe this, then my thinking is in the right place. I am having Faith.

There is One Spirit back of all expression. That is the meaning of that mystical saying: “In Him we live and move and have our being.” (Acts 17:28) –Ernest Holmes

I am one with all that is. The Universe is all one energy, so everything I think, say or do is an expression of this one energy. I am a divine expression of Spirit, of Life Itself. Whatever I do whether it is speaking, dancing, writing, painting, quilting, being a friend; it’s all an expression of Life through me. I choose to express in a positive and uplifting way.

A new light is coming into the world. We are on the borderland of a new experience. The veil between spirit and matter is very thin. The invisible passes into visibility through our faith in it.

--Ernest Holmes

I experience my life in this moment. If I am thinking about the past or about the future, then I am less in the present and experiencing present reality less. Each day I experience the NOW a little bit more.


Tuesday, August 10, 2010


We should work, not with anxiety but with expectancy; not by coercion but with conviction; not through compulsion but in a state of conscious recognition and receptivity. –Ernest Holmes

I look forward to my next project and my next art piece with great expectancy. I look forward to my next day, my next hour, and my next minute with expectancy; because I know that something good is always happening for me and for everyone.


Monday, August 9, 2010


We should EXPECT THE BEST and so live that the best may become a part of our experience.

--Ernest Holmes

I am expecting my life to be good. I am expecting to have what I want and what I need.

Expect the best!

Behind the individual is the Universal, which has no limits. In this concept alone lies the possibility of eternal and endless expansion. –Ernest Holmes

The Universe is constantly expanding and so is my mind. The expansion of my thinking is what allows me to have creative ideas and to do things in new ways. I see the world in a different way in terms of solutions rather than problems. I have an expanded point of view.


Saturday, August 7, 2010


…since we cannot encompass Infinity, we shall always be expanding and always enlarging our capacity to know and to experience.—Ernest Holmes

My mind is constantly growing and expanding into greater awareness of Love, Peace, Harmony, Balance and Creativity. I am going with the flow!

You are sensitive only to good, dwelling in the higher altitudes of consciousness, understanding Life in its spiritual purpose, experiencing exhilaration vitalization, and exaltation.—Ernest Holmes

As I grow and evolve and move forward without resistance in my beautiful creative and abundant Life, I do so with exhilaration.

(noun) the quality of excelling; possessing good qualities in high degree. www.elook.org

I always do the best I can do, with the abilities I have at any given time. I do an excellent job of being Therese May. An excellent example of this is that, if I make a mistake, I immediately forgive myself. This is an excellent way of loving myself!

It has been written that the Truth shall make us free, provided we know the Truth, and we note that the evolution of man’s consciousness brings with it the acquisition of new powers and higher possibilities. –Ernest Holmes

My life is always evolving and moving. I am forever making the next choice or decision and doing the next task, making the next stroke on a drawing, assembling the next art quilt and exhibiting in the next exhibit; meeting the next collector and settling in to watch a favorite TV program with my sweetheart. My life is an organism involved with evolution, one day at a time.

Everything comes from Intelligence. There is nothing but Unity; there is nothing but freedom; there is nothing but completeness; there is nothing but totality.—Ernest Holmes

Everything means everything—that is all inclusive; including all that is. Everything—all inclusive is wholeness.

Man must be created out of the stuff of Eternity, if he is to have real being.—Ernest Holmes

All is now; the past is now; the future is now. Whatever I am thinking, I am thinking it right at this moment. This present moment is forever. This present moment is eternity
