…if our thought is creative and if we have selectivity—that is, volition and choice—and if we are unfolding to a discovery of our true nature, which must already be perfect, then the obligation and responsibility of this nature could impose freedom or bondage upon us temporarily, but our bondage cannot be real from the standpoint of the Absolute.

I choose my own response to life. If I find myself responding with a negative judgment about someone, then I can change my thinking into something positive. I can take responsibility for my own thinking.

If the visible effect in our lives is not what it should be, if we are unhappy, sick and poverty stricken, we know the remedy. The Truth is always the remedy, and the Truth is that the law of liberty is the only real law. When we reverse the process of thought the effect will be reversed.

--Ernest Holmes

There is always a remedy for anything that can seemingly go wrong, and that remedy is to love and bless each and every person or situation, knowing that all is well and unfolding perfectly at all times.

One should never allow himself to think of, or talk about, limitation or poverty. Life is a mirror and will reflect back to the thinker what he thinks into it. The more spiritual the thought, the higher its manifestation. Spiritual thought means an absolute belief in and reliance upon, Truth. This is both natural and normal.—Ernest Holmes

Obviously, I can’t do everything for myself and by myself; we are all here together and we help one another. But I like the feeling of Self-Reliance when I have a moment when I know that I completely and unconditionally Love Myself with or without the approval of others.

…when a psychic exercises the spirit prophecy, because he is getting his own subjective contact with the condition and simply interpreting what comes to him; but this is the logical, deductive, conclusive power of his subjective thought—seeing a thing completed by first seeing a tendency to set in motion and computing the time it will take to complete it. There are but few, however, who possess any reliable spirit of prophecy. –Ernest Holmes

If I say I will do something, then I will do it. I also am free to say “no, I will not do this.” If I say I will do something and then the situation changes or I realize that the thing does not serve me then I bow out. I allow myself to change my mind. I am reliable to myself first and then to others.

It is necessary that we release all thoughts—as well as things—that clutter up our lives. We are reminded that there is something resembling the divine in the intelligence and fearlessness of the organs of our body, in the way they take that which is necessary to their sustenance and well-being, and release that which is not needed. ---Ernest Holmes

I love the feeling of release I get when I finally let go of things that I thought were important.

The mechanical laws of nature are set and immutable, but the spontaneous recognition of these laws gives us the power to bring them into practical use in everyday life and experience.

The realization that good is Universal, and that as much good as any individual is able to incorporate in his life is his to use, is what constitutes the Science of Mind and Spirit.

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. –Ernest Holmes

Reality is simply what is. Part of reality is what the circumstances appear to be, but the greater reality has to do with Principle.

Therefore, our belief sets the limit to our demonstration of a Principle which of Itself, is without limit. It is ready to fill everything, because It is Infinite. So, it is not a question of Its willingness, nor of Its ability. It is entirely a question of our own receptivity. –Ernest Holmes

I am at peace when I have no question. I am already doing what I want to be doing and I already have what I want. When I practice an attitude of Gratitude, I have no question.

All nature waits on man’s recognition of and cooperation with her laws, and is always ready to obey his will; but man must use Nature’s forces in accordance with her laws, and in cooperation with her purpose—which is goodness, truth, and beauty—if he wishes to attain self-mastery.

Limitation is not in Principle nor in Law, but only in the individual use we make of Principle. Our individual use of It can only equal our individual capacity to understand It to embody It. We cannot demonstrate beyond our ability to provide a mental equivalent of our desire.

--Ernest Holmes

As long as I am alive and present here on earth, the Universe will provide for me. As long as I am conscious and aware of the infinite possibilities and opportunities within each moment, I am provided for.

As a matter of fact, we only know as much as we can prove by actual demonstration. That which we cannot prove may, or may not, be true but that which we can prove certainly must be, and is, the truth. –Ernest Holmes

If I get really quiet and listen to my heart, I get step by step guidance to live one day at a time, one hour at a time, and one moment at a time. I create the art that is natural to me. I have nothing to prove to anyone else because I am being the perfect me.
