Unless there were a unifying Principle of life existing as One all-embracing Mind in which everyone lives and everything subsists, then we could not recognize each other. Indeed, we could not be conscious of living in the same world. This Mind in which we live is at all times independent of any individual action on our part. We are in It and It flows through us, but It is always more than we are.
I embrace myself; I embrace all of my life the way I am and the way it is, as is. I embrace and accept everything about me, positive and negative, all of my faults and all of the good stuff, too. I embrace the situations and circumstances of the world and all of the people in my life. Everything is Spirit and Spirit is All-Embracing.

Prayer is not an act of overcoming God’s reluctance; but should be an active acceptance of His highest willingness. Through prayer we recognize a spiritual law; that has always existed, and put ourselves in alignment with it. –Ernest Holmes
This day, I align myself, my Spirit with Universal Peace, Love, Intelligence, Beauty, Health and Joy. I feel great in every way, because I choose to agree with Spirit. I choose to accept that Spirit is working on my behalf and on the behalf of all people and all Life. I choose to let go of past negative patterns or anything that is no longer needed. I accept my alignment with spirit.

The cosmic engine is started but man guides it in his own life. It goes for him in the direction in which it is driven. This driving is not by force but by agreement, unification and acquiescence. Ernest Holmes
There is an order to the Universe and Life is unfolding according to this order, just like a flower, opening into greater beauty. I make an agreement with myself and with the Universe to stay in agreement. I agree with Life!

Man is birthless, deathless, ageless Spirit…This leaves nothing to be born, mature decay and die. Life cannot grow old. God—in us, and through is, as us—can only express according to His Own Nature, which is Perfection. –Ernest Holmes
The center of my being has no age because deep at the core of my soul, that is Spirit, which is infinite, Universal and always was and always will be; no beginning and no end. Circumstances, situations, and bodies are subject to ageing and change, but Spirit stays the same.

A person does not suddenly become affluent because she sits around and thinks,”I am a multi-millionaire.” But when she thinks affluently she does begin to demonstrate prosperity.
I accept that I am affluent. My very being is flowing with the energy of Life. This affluent energy is flowing through me and out to everyone I come into contact with and then back to me. I am connecting affluently with Spirit. I am healthy, wealthy and wise. I am affluent!

Practice is a definite statement in mind, a positive affirmation. It is an active, conscious, aggressive mental movement and in such degree as it embodies an idea—and there is no longer anything in our minds which denies the idea—it will take form because it now becomes a part of the law and order of the Universe in which we live. –Ernest Holmes
Today, I affirm Life. I affirm prosperity and abundance for all living creatures. I say yes to my good, today. My affirmation is that “All is Well”. I am in agreement with nature; I go with the flow, and I say “Yes!”

The practice of Science of Mind calls for a positive understanding of the Spirit of Truth; a willingness to let this inner Spirit guide us with the conscious knowledge that “The law of the Lord is perfect” (psalms 19:7) And we must believe this to be a fact. IN SO FAR AS OUR THOUGHT IS IN ACCORD WITH THIS PERFECT LAW, IT WILL ACCOMPLISH AND NOTHING CAN HINDER IT.—Ernest Holmes
I love to accomplish things. While I am working on my artwork or my marketing, I feel good when I can make little check marks next to the tasks that I accomplish on my list. But when I look within myself and I cultivate patience or forgiveness, then I am accomplishing something very precious indeed.

If one were to make a complete mental picture of himself as he would like to be, filling in all the details of his desires and trying to accept the whole thing as a present reality he would soon demonstrate that the control of affairs is from within out and not from without; the cause being that whatever exists as a mental picture in Mind must tend to and finally does take form if the Picture is really believed in and embodied.
At this moment, I accept myself just the way I am. I love and accept myself even if I am afraid at times. I accept all of the abundance and vitality that is mine today. I am affluent in Life. I am full of intelligence, wisdom and Love. I have all the money I need. I am surrounded by loving people because I attract the love that I am. I accept my big, beautiful Life as is.

Thoughts of lack manifest as limitation. Thoughts of abundance manifest as success and happiness. Failure and success are but two ends of one stick.—Ernest Holmes
The universe is always abundant. There is always enough of everything for everyone. The abundance of the Universe is available to me at all times, as I am able to accept it. When I allow my good to flow into my life, then I have abundance. Whatever I give out, I get back!

Such is the power of right thinking that it cancels and erases everything unlike itself. It answers every question, solves all problems, is the solution to every difficulty. It is like the Sunlight of Eternal Truth bursting through the clouds of obscurity and bathing all life in a celestial glory. It is the Absolute with which we are dealing and nothing less.—Ernest Holmes
Absolute is for sure; it’s something I can depend on; there is no doubt about it. Life on earth is full of variety and uncertainty; sometimes turmoil and violence, as well as beauty and loveliness. But, if I practice non-judgement, I can tap into the absolute power of Spirit. I can choose the energy which goes beyond appearances to the peace of the Absolute.

We cannot demonstrate beyond our ability to mentally embody an idea. The argument is between our experience, what the world believes, and what we are convinced is the Truth.
I have ability. I am able. Just by my being alive, I have the ability to breathe. I could make a very long list of the things I have the ability to do just because I am alive; things like seeing, hearing, walking and talking. On TV I saw a young woman who had MS and could not move her body much at all. She attended university classes, wrote wonderful poetry and earned a 4.0 grade point average. This inspiring person has the ability to not only overcome but to find a place deep within her that can see beyond appearances to her true self.

Subjectivity is entirely receptive…It can take our thoughts only the way we think them…If I say, “I am unhappy”…the subconscious mind says, “Yes, you are unhappy.” --Ernest Holmes
More and more often I allow myself to move forward rather than back. I say “yes” to myself and I give myself permission to live life more fully and in a bigger way. I say “yes” to Life Itself.

…we must not have fear for the future…”I see that the future is bright with promise. It beckons me forward into a more complete realization of my own worth and my rightful place in the Universe.” --Ernest Holmes
I am worthy because I love myself. I am kind to myself and I allow myself to accept and to have good people and good things in my life. I allow myself to accept the peace of the Universe. I am worthy of God’s Love, because I allow the Light of the Universe to flow through me and express as me. I surrender to worthiness.

A treatment is a spiritual entity in the mental world and is equipped with power and volition—as much power and volition as there is faith in it, given to it by the mind of the one using it—and operating through he Law, It knows exactly how to work and what methods to use and just how to use them.—Ernest Holmes
Work is so important to having a good life but play is equally essential to happiness.

…some of the teachers of olden times used to instruct their pupils to cross their hands over their chests and say, “Wonderful, wonderful, wonderful me!” –Ernest Holmes
Having a wonderful day is always a decision I make in each and every moment.

We are surrounded by an Infinite Possibility. It is goodness, Life, Law and Reason. In expressing Itself through us, It becomes more fully conscious of Its own being. Therefore, It wishes to express through us. As It passes into our being, It automatically becomes the law of our lives. –Ernest Holmes
My wishes are in my heart for everyone and everything to be seen as a blessing and for the world to be healed one step and one person at a time.

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.—Ernest Holmes
Wisdom is knowing when to move forward and when to wait. Wisdom is knowing when to share and when to remain silent. It is spending money in a balanced way and eating food in a balanced way. It is making the right choices in life for the greatest and highest good of all concerned.

The practice of the Science of Mind calls for a positive understanding of the Spirit of Truth; a willingness to let this inner Spirit guide us, with the conscious knowledge that “The Law of the Lord is perfect.”—Ernest Holmes
There is an order in the Universe and I do not always know what that order looks like because it does not always match what I think it should look like. So, with the idea of willingness, I allow myself to be open to a new way of thinking. I allow myself to be guided and directed by a power greater than my own. I allow myself to trust the Universe. I am WILLING to move forward, even though I can only see a few steps in front of me.

We do not will things to be done; things are brought into being, not by will, but by the power of the self-assertive Truth. –Ernest Holmes
The will of the Universe is my will. Knowing this is true, if I really listen to my heart, then I will choose to cooperate and follow my guidance.

…believing that there is an Infinite Law of the Spirit, or Law of Life, which tends to multiply our gifts, because in so doing It multiplies Its own experience, Its own pleasure, Its own fruition; we may assume that spiritual man is already a success, is already supplied with everything that he needs. The potential of all things exists in the Universal Wholeness.—Ernest Holmes
Wholeness is when there is nothing missing. Nothing can ever be missing from the Universe. Where would it go? If the Universe is all there is and infinite, then nothing can be missing and therefore the Universe is whole. That is Wholeness!

If we are really One with the Whole, we must be One with the Law of the Whole, as well as One with the Spirit of the Whole. ---Ernest Holmes
At this moment, I am perfect, whole and complete. When it seems as if I have 100 projects unfinished and my life feels chaotic; I can go within and connect with my Spirit, which is whole right here and right now.

If the body is to be permanently well, the soul or subjective life must be in poise; the mind peaceful and happy. –Ernest Holmes
No matter what my condition is; whether I might be experiencing a headache or flu, there is always that part of me that remains untouched, free and well.
