VOICE


We may stumble, but always there is that Eternal Voice, forever whispering within our ear, that thing which causes the eternal quest, that thing which forever sings and sings.—Ernest Holmes

Each time I speak, write, draw, make a quilt or exhibit my work, my voice is heard.

VITALITY


There is a vitality in our communion with the Infinite, which is productive of the highest good.  As fire warms the body, as food strengthens us, as sunshine raises our spirits, so there is a subtle transfusion of some invisible force in such communion, weaving itself into the very warp and woof of our own mentalities.  –Ernest Holmes

When I let my ego float away, that is when I feel vitality.  When I am doing what I love, that is when I feel vitally alive.  I feel wonderfully vital when I decide for love; when I am willing to set aside my judgments about situations or people and I go home to love.

VISUALIZE


Back of what we call the human body, there must be a Divine Body.  It is not necessary to visualize this spiritual body, but we should sense body as a spiritual idea…--Ernest Holmes

As I visualize all of my needs met at all times, I know that this includes everyone and everything being a blessing to me and I am a blessing to the world!

VISION


As we bring ourselves to a greater vision, we induce a greater concept and therefore demonstrate more in our experience.  –Ernest Holmes

My big vision is peace on earth.  My own personal vision is to be at peace and to continue to create a loving atmosphere wherever I go and with whomever I meet.  My vision is for creativity and balance for all.

VIRTUE


Each man is rewarded not for virtue but through virtue.  –Ernest Holmes

I like to think of developing good habits as a virtue.  When I have habits and routines to follow every day, I feel good about myself. Productive habits are virtues to me.

VIEWPOINT


The will holds attention to the mental viewpoint until the creative power has time to work through the law of unfoldment.  –Ernest Holmes

Anytime I want to, I can change my viewpoint.  If I find myself thinking something negative, I acknowledge it, I drop it, and I move on to a more positive viewpoint.

VICTORY


The Spirit knows no past and is not affected by the belief in any way.  The past is swallowed up in the victory of a perfect present, which is filled with love and protection.  –Ernest Holmes

Today, I celebrate victory in each and every aspect of my life.  I release the old idea of “victim” and I replace it with victory.

VIBRATION


Everything is movement; everything we can take hold of and analyze, all things in the physical world or the world of form are in a certain rate of vibration and are an effect. –Ernest Holmes

The vibration of my life right now is one of prosperity, abundance, love, givingness and radiant health.   If any vibration comes into my awareness that is less than that, I thank it, forgive it and release it.

VARIETY


Mental work is definite.  Each state of thought taps the same Principle, each uses the same Law, is inspired by the same spirit, but each draws forth a different result.  Here is multiplicity proceeding from Unity.  This is what Emerson meant when he said that unity passes into variety.
--Ernest Holmes

There is infinite variety in Life.  There is only ONE Life and it contains unfathomable diversity.  I have an infinite variety of choices, but there is only one right choice for me and that is PEACE.
Today, what is the perfect choice for you?

VALUE


The whole teaching of Jesus is to have faith and believe.  He placed a greater value on faith and belief than any individual who has ever taught spiritual truth.  –Ernest Holmes

I value success, love, gratitude, attention, faith and peace.  If something comes to mind which I no longer value, I let it go; I release it with gratitude; I bless it and I say good bye!
What are your six most important values?

VACUUM


The great souls gave us this spiritual consciousness five thousand years ago, but it was hard to make us believe it.  They have had to remain in the background until science at last, resolves the physical universe into that—not vacuum but that substance, indefinable and indivisible, which men like Socrates announced, and upon which conclusions men like Jesus based their whole system of thought and method of procedure. –Ernest Holmes

I create a vacuum in my mind by releasing anything that I no longer need.  Then I invite and receive the new and wonderful feeling of abundance into my heart.

What can you let go of that you no longer need?

USEFUL


…if one knows the Truth, he will never see death.  Death has nothing to do with life everlasting, and is but an impatient gesture of the soul, wishing to rid itself of a body no longer useful.
--Ernest Holmes

I make myself useful by becoming quiet and then expressing myself truthfully and honestly.

UPLIFT


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

I make my art in an exciting way to uplift all who view it!

UNLIMITED


There is nothing in the universe that denies us the right to be happy, if our happiness does not deny or interfere with the general good.  The universe remains unlimited, though the whole world has suffered a sense of limitation. –Ernest Holmes

The power and energy of the Universe is unlimited and this beautiful, loving force is within one right now.

UNIVERSE

 
We cannot fight the Universe.  It refuses to be budged from Its course.  We can only go with it.
--Ernest Holmes

I trust that the Universe wants me to be happy and to have my needs met.  I know that all is well when I believe this.

UNIVERSAL


Man is a spirit while god is the Spirit.  Man is individual, while God is the Universal; but since the individual comes from and is in the Universal, it follows that man is a little world within himself.
--Ernest Holmes

Art and music are a universal way of expressing our souls; a way of communicating love and beauty that we can all understand.

UNITY


We experience good and evil because we perceive a presence of duality rather than unity. 
--Ernest Holmes

All problems and conflicts melt away and no longer exist and never did exist in the realization of the Unity of all Life.  There is only ONE.

Tuesday, June 12, 2012

UNION


The secret of spiritual power lies in a consciousness of one’s union with the Whole, and of the availability of good.  –Ernest Holmes

When I have compassion for others, especially when I do not agree with what they are saying, I realize my union with them and theirs with me.

UNIFICATION


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 only one life.  There is no separation.  Everything is unified into one whole.  In the unification is healing, connecting, Love.

UNFOLDMENT


There is a law of unfoldment in man, which says he can advance only by going from where he is to the place where he would like to be.  –Ernest Holmes

My Life is unfolding perfectly, like a flower opening to greater beauty.  The same is true of all others.  I take pleasure in knowing this truth and I release any thoughts to the contrary.  There is no worry, no blame.  There is only the perfect unfoldment of all of Life itself.

UNDERSTANDING


By spiritual understanding is not meant anything strange or unnatural, but merely that the belief in goodness must be greater than any apparent manifestation of its opposite –Ernest Holmes

When I understand, then I can stop wondering and worrying.  When I understand, then I have listened well, I have “gotten” it, and I can continue to the next subject.  When I understand a person or what they are saying, then I have the capacity to love them. Everything in my life progresses and improves more and more as my understanding of life increases.

UNCOVER


The 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

The true me is deep in my heart, but it is sometimes hidden under layers of old beliefs and habits.  My spiritual work is to uncover and let go of all of the worn out stuff of the past and to reveal the real me in my heart of hearts.

ULTIMATE


The Universal Mind contains all knowledge.  It is the potential ultimate of all things. To It, all things are possible.  To us, as much is possible as we can conceive according to law.  Should all the wisdom of the Universe be poured over us, we should yet receive only that which we are ready to understand.  –Ernest Holmes

My ultimate purpose in life is, of course being an artist and making beautiful things to inspire others. More than that, my ultimate purpose is simply to BE.

TUNE


In order to mentally receive a message, and bring it to the surface, one must be in tune with the vibration of that message.  –Ernest Holmes

As I tune into the NOW, I find a quiet, peaceful refuge deep within me.  This gives me a sense of self worth; a sense of value and a confidence that helps me in whatever I am saying or doing.

TRUTH


Through experience, man learns what is really good and satisfying, what is truly worthwhile.  As his intelligence increases, and his capacity to understand the subtle laws of Nature grows, he will gradually be set free.  As he learns the Truth, the Truth will automatically free him.
—Ernest Holmes

The Truth is that NOW is all there is.  NOW is the Truth.  Nature—all of the beautiful leaves on the trees, the birds, the flowers; all of the animals, the sky, sea, clouds, fish; all these different forms are Goddess and yet, there is the eternal light, the emptiness; this is the Truth.  The Truth just is.  Whenever I feel that there is a problem, I ask myself, “Is this really true?”  And I find that it is not.  If I look more deeply, I can see the Truth.  I can bless the situation and release it.

TRUST


When we learn to trust the Universe, we shall be happy, prosperous and well.  We must learn to come under that divine government, and accept the fact that Nature’s table is ever filled.
—Ernest Holmes

I live in the present moment knowing that all is well.  I let go of the past; I let go of the future and I trust spirit right now.  All the power of the Universe is NOW.

Saturday, June 2, 2012

TRUE


There can be no reason as to why the Truth is true.  How can spirit of Itself create a new form?  I do not know.  As Newton said, the fact that we are able to announce the mystery is the mystery.  –Ernest Holmes

Love is true.  Fear is not true.  Love has power. Fear is powerless.  I choose what is true.  I choose love and power.

TRANSFORMED


The body is healed as the inner mind is transformed; as the old and false images of thought are renewed by images of Truth and Life.  –Ernest Holmes

By practicing love, gratitude, forgiveness and generosity, I am creating a transformed me.  I know and accept this because it gives me the power to change my own life.
