Affirmation: Accepting what is, I live in God’s universe here and now.
“We do not find the full secret of life immediately because we must unfold in divine order, moment by moment, to come to completion.“
(ONLY BELIEVE, by Sue Sikking 62).
“The unfoldment of the individual is the purpose of life, and this unfoldment is in divine order.” (ONLY BELIEVE, by Sue Sikking 118).
“Life is simple. Everything happens for you, not to you. Everything happens at exactly the right moment, neither too soon nor too late. You don’t have to like it… it’s just easier if you do.” Byron Katie
“I am a lover of what is, not because I’m a spiritual person, but because it hurts when I argue with reality. We can know that reality is good just as it is, because when we argue with it, we experience tension and frustration. We don’t feel natural or balanced. When we stop opposing reality, action becomes simple, fluid, kind, and fearless.” Byron Katie
“The condition of our outer world is always the perfect out picturing of our inner world. If we do not like the outer us, we can change it by going within an putting our thoughts and feelings in order.”
“When you argue with reality, you lose, but only 100% of the time.”
“We feel the weight of worldly matters, but we also hear the call to come up higher. Let us respond not by living apart an isolating ourselves from the human family and the world, but by seeing earthly matters from a higher point of view. In this way, we will not forsake the world; we will assign it its proper place. After all, even mystics have bills to pay.” (Jim Rosemergy)
When you work in the realization that you are under God’s law of love, His law of good, that His divine order is established in and for you, you find yourself functioning on a new level. Your mind is clearer, your body is stronger, your emotions are calm and unperturbed. You are able to meet everything with ease, to accomplish all things successfully. (HALFWAY UP THE MOUNTAIN, by Martha Smock 60)
