“The meek shall inherit the earth.” This is a teaching of non-resistance. War lords and plunderers of human possessions have come and gone. Kingdoms have risen only to crumble in dust and become numbered with past events….To whom have our artists turned for inspiration and that quickening power which enables them to depict the ideal? Not to the war lords, nor even the captains of industry, but to the meek.—Ernest Holmes
Today, I release all resistance to my good. I let go of any left over anger, sadness or worry. I let go of the past or the future. This day, I allow the present moment to fill me with the Love of God. I resist nothing. I allow my good to flow in me, through me and as me. By practicing nonresistance, I allow my life to unfold and I enjoy each moment. I’m going with the flow. I’m feeling the energy of the Universe. Things happen; good, bad, right, wrong—I release judgment and I stay centered, practicing moderation, and focusing on my goals. Nonresistance helps me stay in the flow and in the know!

“The life of letting go is the life of freedom, the life of nonattachment.” –Zoketsu Norman Fischer
There are so many things in life to think about—people, places, things; jobs to do, places to go, all of the stuff on the news—it can be frightening, stressful, nerve wracking. But to practice nonattachment is to know that each event will pass; it’s all temporary, and that none of it is good or bad, it just is. If I listen to my heart or to the still small voice; that is what is real.

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
I am in touch with nature because I am part of nature just as the trees, the flowers, the water, the air and the animals are part of nature. I am an integral part of it all.

It is evident that the movement back of the objective world must be a subjective movement—a movement of consciousness. –Ernest Holmes
I experience movement as I go on and do the next thing and then the next thing. I move forward in my life, on my path. I also find the time to practice being still and to practice listening. This makes my movement much easier.

I always have an abundance of money and an abundance of whatever it takes to make life happy and opulent. There is a continuous movement toward me of supply, of money, of all that I need to express the fullest life, happiness and action. –Ernest Holmes
Money, money, money---I love money! I attract more money all the time. I like to have money so I can live comfortably, pay the bills and buy fun things. I always have enough because the Universe always provides everything I need. I give money out and money returns to me. I am abundant with money!

Within reasonable limits; avoiding excesses or extremes; temperate or restrained
There is so much to experience in life that I must learn to make wise choices. I choose to enjoy everything that contributes to my health and happiness. If I find myself indulging in any one thing to an extreme then I need to step back and find the activities that will give me balance. I practice taking the middle of the road and do everything in moderation.

To the average person, when a result is obtained by this method of work, it looks as though a miracle has happened, but such is not the case. It is only a miracle as everything else in life is a miracle. A definite, conscious idea has been set in motion in the Subjective World which accepts ideas at their own valuation and tends to act upon them.—Ernest Holmes
All of Life is a miracle. It’s a miracle when some unexpected wonderful thing happens and everyone says,” Wow!” It’s a miracle that we are here on earth and we are alive and breathing. There are nothing but miracles!

We must instill into the mind the fundamental proposition that good is without bounds. Only good and loving-kindness shall “follow me all the days of my life.” (Psalms 23)—Ernest Holmes
My individual mind is part of the greater Universal mind. All beings are part of this greater mind. I can draw on this larger Intelligence anytime by becoming quiet and listening.

From selfish reasons alone, if from no loftier reason, we cannot afford to find fault, to hate, or even to hold in mind anything against any living soul! The God of love cannot hear the prayer of the one who fails to love. In our meditation for friendship let us make our unity with all people, with all life.—Ernest Holmes
My meditation today is looking for the good in what already is right now. I let go of the outside world and I listen; I find my grounding and I know that Life is unfolding perfectly.

The one who wishes to work out his problems, must daily take the time to meditate and mentally treat the condition, no matter what the apparent contradictions may be. –Ernest Holmes
As I become quiet and meditate every day, I come into the present moment. I become clearer about what is important and what is not. I see that most of what I have been seeking and grasping for is not important and not really real. Practicing the presence in the NOW is the BIG REALITY, and it’s all I ever need.

We know, by intuition, that there is something beyond what we have so far consciously experienced in the world. Poets have sung of it and there are moments in the lives of all, when the veil seems thin between and we almost enter into the heavenly estate. This is the meaning of coming to one’s self. We are still in the awakening state; we have not yet consciously entered the state of perfect wholeness. –Ernest Holmes
I don’t always know the meaning of everything that happens in my life or in the world, but I can create meaning for myself by blessing everything and everyone and realizing that everything and everyone is a blessing. This is true meaning, and it’s a solution for everything.

No one has seen God; no one has seen Life; what we have seen is the manifestation of Life.
I am a manifestation of creativity and my creativity makes it possible for the manifestation of more and more beauty and more and more art. I love art.

Personal magnetism has nothing to do with mental healing. The whole basis of the possibility of mental healing rests upon the premise that we all live in One Creative Mind which reacts to our belief. It is as though there were a Universal Ear, listening to and hearing everything that we say, feel or think, and reacting to it. –Ernest Holmes
I am blessed with magnetism! The more I keep my mind centered in Love, the more magnetized I become. I am a magnet, attracting Love wherever I go, because Love is radiating from me and touching all who I came into contact with. We are all “love magnets.”

Noun quality, state or instance of being loyal; faithfulness or faithful adherence to a person, government, cause, duty, etc. www.yourdictionary.com
I value the relationships I have with my significant other and all of the members of my family, friends and colleagues. I stay with these relationships even through difficult times. I am loyal to the people in my life. I’m loyal to my cat, Mr. Button, too! Loyalty is a quality that helps make life worth living.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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!

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

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.

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

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!

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 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!
Wednesday, April 3, 2013
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.

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.
Monday, April 1, 2013
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!
