WEEKLY NEWSLETTER FOR May 8, 2017
Theme for the month of May
Building the Beloved Community
There are times when I find myself taking things for granted rather than questioning the truth behind a belief or an action. When any of us blindly accept a situation or condition for too long, it most often turns against us and we may find ourselves in a pickle, a mess, a hurtful place. It is an instance where we’ve turned a mound into a mountain.
The first step is always awareness—look honestly at whatever situation that is causing discomfort. Identify it; name it. No excuses or alibis. As Ernest Holmes has written, “You tend to attract to yourself circumstances and situations which are like the images of your thought.”
I admit, sometimes it takes time to assimilate a new response, a new way of viewing ourselves and most importantly accepting the responsibility of “aiding and abetting” your current circumstances. But now is the time to change the tune of despair that is playing in your brain to one of hope and bright promise.
Repeat, pray without ceasing, “I know that I am in partnership with the infinite.
I identify myself with this partnership knowing that it always leads to success. I accept that the action of infinite intelligence is back of everything, and it now does so through the thought pattern of success I am establishing for myself.”
The invisible presence and power of God within me now creates the loving life with which I am now identifying.
