FEELING



We live in a Universe of Love as well as a Universe of Law.  One is the complement of the other—the Universe of Love pulsating with feeling, with emotion, and the Universe of Law, the Executor of all feeling and all emotion.  –Ernest Holmes

I have a close friendship with a certain person who has a habit of pushing my buttons.  I am getting much better at not reacting.  Lately, I realized that the reactions are just old thoughts and have nothing to do with this present reality.  When I go within and observe the real feeling, I notice that I feel only love.

FAMILY



The subjective mind is the seat of memory and contains a remembrance of everything that has ever happened to the outer man.  It also contains the family and race characteristics.  It retains these memories, in a certain sense, as mental pictures.  The subjective mind might be compared to a picture gallery, upon whose walls are hung pictures of all the people whom the individual has ever known, and all the incidents which he has ever experienced.  –Ernest Holmes

The people closest to me are my family.  My mother, father, sisters, brothers, grandparents, sons, daughters, best friends, lovers, husbands, wives; anyone who I connect deeply with—that’s my family; those are the people I really care about.  I really care about all people and all the creatures on earth.  I care about the earth itself.  It’s all one!

FAITH



If one will have faith in himself, faith in his fellowmen, in the Universe, and in God, that faith will light the place in which he finds himself, and by the light of this faith, he will be able to see that ALL IS GOOD. And the light shed by this faith will light the way for others.  –Ernest Holmes

Faith is the opposite of fear.  I practice Faith by affirming that all is well.  The Universe wants for me to have a good life.  If I believe this, then my thinking is in the right place.  I am having Faith.

EXPRESSION



There is One Spirit back of all expression.  That is the meaning of that mystical saying: “In Him we live and move and have our being.” (Acts 17:28) –Ernest Holmes

I am one with all that is.  The Universe is all one energy, so everything I think, say or do is an expression of this one energy.  I am a divine expression of Spirit, of Life Itself.  Whatever I do whether it is speaking, dancing, writing, painting, quilting, being a friend; it’s all an expression of Life through me.  I choose to express in a positive and uplifting way.

EXPERIENCE



A new light is coming into the world.  We are on the borderland of a new experience.  The veil between spirit and matter is very thin.  The invisible passes into visibility through our faith in it.
--Ernest Holmes

I experience my life in this moment.  If I am thinking about the past or about the future, then I am less in the present and experiencing present reality less.  Each day I experience the NOW a little bit more.

EXPECTANCY



We should work, not with anxiety but with expectancy; not by coercion but with conviction; not through compulsion but in a state of conscious recognition and receptivity.  –Ernest Holmes

I look forward to my next project and my next art piece with great expectancy.  I look forward to my next day, my next hour, and my next minute with expectancy; because I know that something good is always happening for me and for everyone.

EXPECT



We should EXPECT THE BEST and so live that the best may become a part of our experience.
--Ernest Holmes

I am expecting my life to be good.  I am expecting to have what I want and what I need.
Expect the best!

EXPANSION



Behind the individual is the Universal, which has no limits.  In this concept alone lies the possibility of eternal and endless expansion.  –Ernest Holmes

The Universe is constantly expanding and so is my mind.  The expansion of my thinking is what allows me to have creative ideas and to do things in new ways.  I see the world in a different way in terms of solutions rather than problems.  I have an expanded point of view.

EXPANDING



…since we cannot encompass Infinity, we shall always be expanding and always enlarging our capacity to know and to experience.—Ernest Holmes

My mind is constantly growing and expanding into greater awareness of Love, Peace, Harmony, Balance and Creativity.  I am going with the flow!
