SOURCE

Should all the wisdom of the Universe be poured over us, we should yet receive only that which we are ready to understand. This is why some draw one type of knowledge and some another, and all from the same source—the source of all knowledge. The scientist discovers the principles of his science, the artist embodies the spirit of his art…--Ernest Holmes

My Source is Spirit which is so much larger than my small individual selfhood. I can depend on this source, of which I am a part and which is not separated from me. I am my source.

SOUL

We may enter in because of our belief, but we cannot enter while there is unbelief. Here we come to a house divided against itself. If we say we can only experience a little good then we shall experience but a little good. But, if we say, with Emerson, “There is no great and no small to the soul that maketh all,” then we may experience a greater good because we have conceived it.

--Ernest Holmes

My Soul is my Self. My Self is my Soul. I am my Self. I am my Soul. All of those missing parts of me that I thought were missing? I have called them all back home to my Self, my Soul. I am complete—nothing missing! There never was any part missing.

SOLUTION

The mathematician solves a problem, but the problem is not the Principle of Mathematics; the solution of the problem is an effect or a result of the application of the principle. We do not see Life, we experience living. Causation is invisible. –Ernest Holmes

There is a solution to every problem if you can just listen to the still small voice.

SOLITUDE

The Universe holds nothing against us. No matter how many mistakes we have made, we are still perfect beings within, and the within may become the without, if we will carefully train ourselves to listen to the inner voice of truth which comes to us in our moments of quietness and solitude. –Ernest Holmes

A certain amount of solitude can be very healing. It’s good to have a balance of solitude and company.

SIMPLICITY

To return to a sane simplicity is one of the first and most important things to do. All men receive some light, and this light is always the same light. There is one nature diffused throughout all nature; One God incarnated in all peoples. –Ernest Holmes

When I keep it simple, I can be much more peaceful, because I do not become so distracted with unnecessary things to do. I don’t overwork and I recognize the wonderful value in appreciating my life just the way it is and just the way it is not. I am able to allow the Joy and love to flow into my body and my soul and my beingness. Simplicity heals me!

SILENCE

My mind now releases all sense of burden or strain. Nothing can hurt or disturb my spiritual self. I am free and safe. All plans and ideas can wait until later. The divine Wisdom works through me and I am protected from mistakes. My mind is quiet, calm, and deeply still. All tension is released and the great inner peace flows out through every nerve. My body rests in the still silence of the spirit. I bless my body and my mind for they are good and worthy of my love.

--Ernest Holmes

When I go into the silence and listen to the stillness of the moment, I can hear my guidance quietly giving me my next step.

SERVICE

We can put as much detail into our mental work as we desire. Sometimes to do so will be of great service in gaining a complete mental acceptance of our desires. This is the whole secret, a complete mental acceptance and embodiment of our desires. –Ernest Holmes

How can I be of service? I first help myself, then I can help others. I first free myself of mental conflicts and tap into the peace of good. Then I can be clear about what I can do for others.

SERENITY

We know the background of human thought is to a great extent, one of negation, a denial of an harmonious and spiritual Universe; consequently, our outlook on life must be transformed by the renewing of the mind, and even when the results are not immediately forthcoming, we must still maintain a calm serenity of thought. –Ernest Holmes

When I have forgiven and resolved all of my past issues and relationships, then I experience serenity.

SENSITIVE

The passages of your mind are open only to the inflow and the outflow of good. 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

I am sensitive to the feelings of others, while I learn to take care of myself first.

SEED

The gardener finds a divine idea concealed in the seed; loosed into action this idea produces a plant. --Ernest Holmes

SATISFACTION

What is a habit? A habit is desire objectified—“the continuous character of one’s thoughts and feelings”—desire for something that will give satisfaction. At the root of all habit is one basic thing: the desire to express life. –Ernest Holmes

I can get temporary satisfaction when I finish a project, but I get real satisfaction when I know the truth and I bless everyone and everything.

SANCTUARY

This Original Life is Infinite. It is good. It is filled with peace. It is of essence of purity. It is the ultimate of intelligence. It is power. It is Law. It is Life. It is in us. In that inner sanctuary of our own nature, hidden perhaps from objective gaze, “nestles the seed, perfection.” –Ernest Holmes

The peace and silence of my heart is my sanctuary.

SALVATION

When by reason of enlightenment and understanding, we correct such mistakes; we no longer suffer from them. Understanding alone constitutes true salvation, either here or hereafter.

--Ernest Holmes

Salvation is giving up on having anything wrong with you.

SECRET

…the world of multiplicity does not contradict the world of Unity, for the many live in the One. This concept of Unity is the mystical secret of the ages, the key to spiritual wisdom and to the teaching of Jesus.

You don’t need to keep any secret from anyone when you know the Truth and you act with Love and forgiveness.

SACREDNESS

The first requisite for the mental and spiritual practitioner is a full sense of the sacredness of his trust…--Ernest Holmes

Perhaps a flower expresses sacredness because of its delicate deliciousness just for its own sake.

ROSE

No man need prepare to meet his God; he is meeting Him every day and each hour in the day. He meets Him in the rising sun, in the flowing stream in the budding rose, in the joy of friendship and love, and in the silence of his own soul. –Ernest Holmes

A rose is one of the loveliest of flowers. It is beautiful and it smells great! I am not sure what its purpose is, except to just be.

RIGHT THINKING

When one realizes that everything is Mind and that nothing moves but Mind, and that the only instrument of Mind is thought (which is contemplation in some form or other) he will see that nothing can permanently heal unless it be accompanied by right thinking. --Ernest Holmes

Practicing right thinking is when you communicate and you appreciate and you follow right thinking with right action.

RICH

Life lies open to me—rich, full, abundant….I have only to open the portals of my soul and accept that which is ready to express through me. Today I fling these portals wide; today I am the instrument through which life flows. –Ernest Holmes

I am rich beyond all measure when I follow my dream and when I know that the journey is the gift.

RHYTHM

Hold steadfastly to the thought that all of life is in a state of eternal flow. Relax your thought and allow the free flow of the Life Essence, in and through you, and your body will respond to Its healing activity. Inaction will quickly disappear into its native nothingness, in the rhythm and harmony of all your bodily functions. –Ernest Holmes

There is a rhythm to life and I am not in charge of it. It’s in charge, and I ‘m going with the flow!

REWARD

The person who can throw himself with a complete abandon into that Limitless Sea of Receptivity, having cut loose from all apparent moorings, is the one who will always receive the greatest reward. –Ernest Holmes

The reward for everything I do is in the present moment. It is in the doing and in the peace I feel in pushing through the fear and allowing my worthiness.

REVEAL

…Divine Ideas are perfect, but man’s freedom of individuality causes them to appear imperfect. Through right thinking, he is able to uncover the appearance of imperfection and reveal the Perfect Idea. –Ernest Holmes

As an artist, I reveal my truth in the form of my art quilts. I reveal and I express with color and fabric.

RESULT

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

To get a good result I must steer clear of distractions and keep moving in the direction of my desire.

Rest permeates my mind and body with its healing presence. I do not try to make anything happen, I accept restful sleep. –Ernest Holmes
