COMPENSATION

“I am surrounded by right action.  I am filled with the consciousness of right action.  Right action is success in all that I undertake to do.  I am successful in all my undertakings, and I am compensated for all my efforts.  I am surrounded by Substance, which is always taking the form of supply and always manifesting Itself to me in the form of whatever my need may be at the time.”  --Ernest Holmes

I am always compensated in one way or another for everything I think, say or do.  For every action there is a reaction.  By acting with intention, I can have more control over what my compensation will be.

COMPASSION

A practitioner must be filled with the spirit of Divine Compassion.  He must have a deep, underlying sense of unity…Ernest Holmes

When I care about other people, animals, plants, the earth, then I am caring about myself and I can relax into just being enough right here and right now.  With compassion, I release all judgment of myself or others, I release anything negative and I know that I am unified with all of life and I am one with all.  I am not separate, I realize that I am part of a greater whole and each of us is in compassion and Love for brothers and sisters in Love of the Universe.

COMPANIONSHIP

A constant realization of the presence of Spirit will provide a sense of Divine Companionship that no other attitude could produce.  –Ernest Holmes

I love having someone to do things with!  Companionship is a gift I am very grateful for!

COMMUNION

There is 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.  This conscious commingling of our thought with spirit is essential to the well-being of every part of us.  –Ernest Holmes

When I eat good food and get energy from it, the food becomes part of me.  I am in communion with the food.Kindle Book 365 Thoughts for the Day

COMMUNICATION

The very fact that we are here and can communicate with each other, establishes the Unity of Mind, and it also establishes the fact that Intelligence contacts and communicates with Itself. 
–Ernest Holmes


When I am open and honest in my relationships, I feel healthier and lighter.  I feel my power when I express my feelings and my thoughts.  When I talk with others or when I write in my journal or in a letter, I am clearing my mind and learning about myself.  Creating a work of art is another form of communicating.  Today, I set my intention to communicate.

COMMUNICATE


If your mind and my mind were not the same mind, we would have no way by which to communicate with each other.  Thus we are forced to the conclusion that there is but One Mind.  Each individual however is a unique variation in the Universe no two people are alike, and yet all people are rooted in that which is identical.  –Ernest Holmes

I am never alone because my mind is one with the One Mind.  I might experience the illusion of being alone, but, really, there is no separation. I can communicate by writing, talking, drawing, quilting or meditating to bring back a feeling of unity and connection.

COMMITMENT


The state of being bound emotionally or intellectually to a course of action.  –The American Heritage Dictionary

When I make a commitment to a project I tend to be much more focused on the process of doing whatever it takes to get it done.  When I am committed to a relationship, I am more likely to do whatever it takes to express lovingly and generously.

COMFORT

I love the heat of the desert and the dampness of the ocean.  I feel physically complete and harmonious in every climate.  I do not condemn any kind of weather for all are part of myself.  I am one with all.  I love all and I feel comfortable in all.  –Ernest Holmes

Working with fabric and paint to make art quilts brings me comfort.  It is an art that I have practiced for many years and I intend to continue for the rest of my life.  This constant practice of something I love is a comfort.  Quilting is a comforting art.

COLOR


Let us not forget that there is inherent necessity for warmth and color.  The Universe is more than an inexorable Law of Cause and Effect.  Personality cannot emerge from a principle which does not contain the inherent possibility of personality.  --Ernest Holmes

Color brings so much pleasure to my life.  Color is beauty; I love it.  My favorites are purple, fuchsia, Magenta, turquoise, black. But this would not be possible without all of the colors of the rainbow.  It’s the different combinations of colors, rather than one single color at a time that gives us so much beauty.  They all work together.

CLEAR

God is All.  There is but One Power, Intelligence and Consciousness in the Universe, but One Presence.

This is a good way to clear your consciousness.  We can readily see what it does: it induces a clear concept of Reality, which must reproduce Itself.  This process of clear thinking, if carried out every day, will heal.—Ernest Holmes

Life is a journey on a path.  While walking on this path, if there are obstacles, I must clear the way.  If I understand this each step is easier.

CLEAN


Not what we eat or drink, but what we think, defiles.  The issues of life are from within.  If a man is clean in his mind, then is he clean indeed.  We must keep the mental house free from any thought which contradicts the truth of being.  –Ernest Holmes

I feel good when I keep my mental house clean first and then and my physical house clean.  I feel good when I take a bath and my hair is all shiny and smooth.  I love it when my home is in order and all the dishes are washed clean and put away.  There must be something to the saying, “cleanliness is next to Godliness!”

CLARITY

This inner thought content is the sole medium between the Absolute and the relative, between causes and conditions.

When this inner thought is clarified, that is, when it knows the truth, it will reinstate the outer man in peace, poise, health and happiness.  –Ernest Holmes

When I think clearly, then I have clarity.  When I have clarity, then I can move forward in a more authentic way, and achieve results that work for me and for the world.

CLARIFY


Infinite Spirit Complete Essence of Life is now my life.  That which is animated by Perfect Spirit of Life must express or be like that which animates it.  My thought now rests in contemplation of my real self and that clarified thought makes easy the way for the operation of the Life Essence through me.  –Ernest Holmes

If there is something I do not understand, I ask to clarify it.  I ask questions, I read, I seek to know the Truth.

CIRCULATION


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, that the flow and circulation of life through it is complete.  It is not inhibited…not congested.  –Ernest Holmes

I give and I receive.  What I give out I get back.  When I get something, then I consciously give something back.  This is the law of circulation.

CIRCLE


God is in us as we are in God—the same essence, the degree apparently different.  The one finite and the other Infinite, and since the Infinite cannot come from the finite, it follows that the finite must come from the Infinite—a little circle within the big circle.

I love the circle because it symbolizes wholeness and oneness.  A circle is a line that is unbroken.  A hug is like a circle!

CHOICE


If we observe any scientific discovery, we shall see that this is the way it works.  Some man’s mind discovers the law or principle, governing the science; this is the way of Love of personal volition, of choice—this is the spontaneous element in the universe. –Ernest Holmes

I always have choice.  I can choose love or I can choose fear.  I can choose to move forward or to be stuck in past beliefs.  I make the choice for stepping out with love!

CHILD


Then spoke the child:
“I am come to bring peace.
I am the child of joy, and
To all who will, I give life.
I am formed of happiness.
I am come from the eternal stillness.
Quietness and confidence are mine.
In the heart of the Father I have lived forever.”
--Ernest Holmes

I am kind to my inner child.  I take care of this precious child within me—I’m her mom.  I do not allow her to be destructive.  I encourage her to be creative, which is her nature!
