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.

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 for you!.  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'm able to 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.

ASSERTIVE

Claria Ink, marker pens, Strathmore paper, 8.5x11"

To assert our individuality is to rise above the law of averages into that more highly specialized use of the Law which brings freedom rather than bondage, joy in the place of grief and wholeness instead of sickness.  …we are impressing the Law with a new idea of ourselves…a less limited idea; and we are learning to think independently of any existing circumstance.
—Ernest Holmes
I assert my value.  I communicate; I ask for what I want; I assert myself and I allow my good to come to me.  In the morning I assert myself when I rise out of bed, ride my stationary bike, eat a good breakfast and get ready for the day.  I asset myself when I do my yoga, go for walks and eat my fruits and veggies.  I am assertive when I make healthy choices and I thrive.

ASCEND

Claria Ink, marker pens, acrylic paint, Strathmore paper, 8.5"x11"

ASCEND

Our individualized Universe is forever complete, yet forever completing itself, in order that every experience may teach us to transcend some previous one, in ever ascending cycles, upward bound.  Ernest Holmes

When I think positively and constructively, then I ascend to a higher place in my awareness.  When I think in terms of solutions rather than problems, then I am rising above the circumstances and connecting with the energy of Spirit.

ARTIST

ARTIST
As the artist communes with the essence of beauty and gives birth to form so our minds should commune with the Divine Presence. –Ernest Holmes

As an artist I create beautiful objects because I love the process of doing it and I love it when people respond in a positive way.  So, I think that anyone can take whatever talent they have to create something new as a way of enjoying life and sharing with others.
