LOVE

We do well to listen to this Inner voice, for it tells us of a life wonderful in its scope; of a love beyond our fondest dreams, of a freedom which the soul craves.—Ernest Holmes

I love myself. When I love myself, then I can love others. The channel is open for the energy to flow. I express myself openly and honestly. I accept myself the way I am. My heart is open and full of compassion. Love is all there is. It is everywhere and in everything and everyone. Love is eternal and is my natural state of being. When I begin having thoughts that are not loving, then I consciously move back into alignment with loving thoughts again.

LISTENING

We must learn to listen for this voice. Call it conscience, intuition, or what we will, it is there. No man need go unguided through life, for all are divine at the center and all are Images of the Most High!—Ernest Holmes

I remember to listen. To listen to what people are saying. I listen to Spirit within me. I listen as I release the outside world, I let go of the cares and burdens of the day. I let go of work. I release what I no longer need. I tune in and I listen to the still small voice within. I am one with God. I listen and I feel and I move forward by taking one baby step at a time. Then I listen for my next step.

LIGHT

The Law we are discussing is simply a law of Nature, a force of Nature. It happens to be a mental force, and an intelligent and creative one, like electricity, which will either light our house and cook our food or will electrocute us if we use it incorrectly –Ernest Holmes

Light is what the sun gives me, or what a light bulb gives when the switch is turned on. Light is energy that makes me warm and flows through me. Everything is Light; Everything is Energy. When I am happy and alive I feel Light! I invite the Light of Life into my heart and into my being. I am healed by this Light and I am open to more.

LIFE

There is a Universal Mind, Spirit, Intelligence that is the origin of everything; It is First Cause. It is God. This Universal Life and Energy finds an outlet in and through all that is energized, and through everything that lives. –Ernest Holmes

Life is eternal. There is only life. Even what I call death is a part of a Larger Life, a continuous cycle of transformation coming and going and beginning and ending again and again, no beginning and no end, just eternal Life. Life is good. Life is all there is. Life is flowing through me and expressing as me.

LET

What a marvelous thought to bear in mind: that it is done unto us! We need not coerce, we do not create the power, but we must LET this Great Power operate through us. –Ernest Holmes

I let life unfold. I let it, because it will and it does unfold, whether I let it or not. If I resist, then I only cause my own pain. So I let it and I feel good! It’s much easier that way!

LEARNING

We cannot account for the seen without having faith in the unseen. All advance in science or any other branch of learning must follow this rule if it is to accomplish anything. –Ernest Holmes

More and more each day, I am learning to love myself and care for myself. I am learning to forgive myself if I make a mistake and to release worrying about the past and the future. I am learning to live in the NOW.

KNOWLEDGE

The Divine Mind is Infinite. It contains all knowledge and wisdom, but, before It can reveal Its secrets, It must have an outlet. This outlet we shall be compelled to supply through our own receptive mentalities.—Ernest Holmes

I know that whatever I need to know is within me. I learn many things in school from my parents, siblings, from my job, from books and teachers and from the world, but true knowledge comes to me when I listen to my heart. When I become quiet and still, and when I let go of worrying, that is when I can hear the still small voice of knowledge and guidance. I align myself with spirit. I practice being present in the moment. I am grateful for the gifts I am given. I listen and I follow my guidance. I meditate and I pray. I study. I forgive. I give. I allow my life to unfold. I trust. I draw on this knowledge within me.

KINDNESS

...demanded a complete and unreserved trust in the goodness and loving kindness of the creator.

--Ernest Holmes

The song says, “In the End, Only Kindness Matters.” I am reminded, when I feel anger toward another, to consider the consequences of expressing my anger in a violent outburst. I remind myself to practice nonviolent communication and to remember that, “Only Kindness Matters” Right Now.

JOY

I contend with none, argue with none, and am filled with wonderful peace and light. There is no uncertainty about my future and no fear of my past. I live in an eternal Now which is filled with good alone. Goodness and beauty follow me. Peace and joy accompany me. Happiness and wholeness fill my entire being with the realization of love and perfection.—Ernest Holmes

I have joy in my heart. Sometimes whatever is happening in my life is what makes me happy, sad, mad, or whatever. Joy is already within me. I must turn away from the situation and tap into it to feel Joy!

Joy is a natural state that is always within me. It is part of the essence of who I am. As I allow the layers of conditioning to be released and be peeled away, I experience more and more of the essence of Joy in my life. I celebrate Joy today!

JOURNEY

We make our own mistakes, suffer from our own foolishness, and we must also make our own return journey into righteousness. –Ernest Holmes

I am on a spiritual Path; a journey of souls. My destination is peace and Unconditional Love.

INWARD

We understand the unseen by correctly viewing the seen. The outward effect must partake of its inward nature. The physical universe is the result of an inner Intelligence, working, through Law. Behind form is idea. The Formless creates form, through the creative power of Its own Mind and Spirit. –Ernest Holmes

My real world is within me. I experience what seems to be outside of me, but I create this experience. I create my own reality by the thoughts that I think. On a daily basis, I look inward to observe my thoughts and feelings. I practice thinking new thoughts so I can create a more loving world for myself and for my loved ones.

INVOLUTION

Involution is the idea, while evolution is the unfoldment of the idea. INVOLUTION PRECEDES EVOLUTION AND EVOLUTION FOLLOWS WITH MECHANICAL PRECISION, PROPELLED BY AN IMMUTABLE LAW…the Law of Cause and Effect. –Ernest Holmes

I am always involved with ideas and making art. I love being in a state of involution because this is my natural creative state and it feels good!

INVISIBLE

In this invisible law of unfoldment, we must come to trust, and although we do not see the way, we must believe that the way IS and IS OPERATIVE. We must trust the Invisible, for It is the sole cause of that which is visible…things which are seen were not made of things which do appear.(Heb. 11:3)

There is an invisible force of the Universe which takes care of my every need in life. I know that this invisible, silent partner within me loves me. I keep this in mind as I move through my daily routine.

INTUITION

Instinct is intuition acting unconsciously; intuition is instinct elevated to the point of self-awareness. They are identical. Intuition is Omniscience acting omnipresently; therefore,

whether or not we believe it, it is ever present with us. –Ernest Holmes

I have a knowingness within me. I can become quiet and listen to my selfhood. I always know what to say and what to do. My intuition guides me and directs me one step at a time, one day at a time. I trust my intuition.

INTENTION

This Law of Mind is man’s access to the Original Creative Genius of the Universe, and has no intention for us other than the intention that we give It. The will of Spirit is already imposed upon It to do all those things which we call the automatic processes of nature, whether in our physical bodies or in the physical body of the Universe.

When I set my intention, then my dreams can come true. I listen to my heart…What is really right for me? What is the object of my desire? I hear the answer. I set my intention and I create a plan of action. When I work intentionally, my wishes become a reality!

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 am losing something—or I have 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.

ILLUMINATION

Right here, through our own nature is the gateway and path which leads to illumination, to realization, to inspiration, to the intuitive perception of everything. The highest faculty in man is intuition and it comes to a point sometimes where, with no process of reasoning at all, he instantly knows. –Ernest Holmes

As my true identity is unveiled and revealed, I embrace the process of illumination.

IDENTITY

There are not two subjective minds. There is but one Subjective Mind, and what we call our subjective mind is really the use we are making of the One Law. Each individual maintains his identity in Law through his personal use of it!

Personal identity of course postulates memory which binds into one sequence, the old life and the new. This means that man must carry with him—after the experience of physical death—a complete remembrance, for it is to this alone that we must look for the link which binds one event to another, making life a continuous stream of self-conscious expression.—Ernest Holmes

As my life unfolds and I let go of old ways of being, more and more, my true identity is unveiled and revealed.

IDEALISM

The student should take time every day to see his life as he wishes it to be to make a mental picture of his ideal. He should pass this picture over to the Law and go about this business, with a calm assurance that on the inner side of life something is taking place. There should not be any sense of hurry or worry about this, just a calm, peaceful sense of reality. Let the Law work through, and express Itself in, the experience. There should be no idea of compulsion. We do not have to make the Law work; it is Its nature to work. In gladness then, we should make known our desires, and in confidence we should wait upon the Perfect Law to manifest through us.

---Ernest Holmes

In an ideal world, everyone would have enough food to eat, clothes to wear and a roof over their heads. There would be no sickness or disease, no war. There would be beautiful hills, rivers, and trees. All beings would commune in peace and harmony. This Idealism is an idea to keep in mind and something to work toward.

IDEA

ALL THOUGHT IS CREATIVE

Since this is true, it follows that we cannot say that one thought is creative while another is not. We must say thatt all thought is creative, according to the nature, impulse, and emotion of conviction behind the thought. Thought creates a mold in the Subjective, in which the idea is accepted and poured, and sets power in motion in accordance with the thought. –Ernest Holmes

I have a very long list of idea after idea. I prioritize my list to find the most important ideas and then I act on the best ones. I love ideas!
