“What we need to understand and to remember is that we are the means by which God, or Spirit, creates and expresses Life in the world. It does so marvelously in the world at large, whether we choose to live that way or not. It will do it through us, or around us. It will do it with us or in spite of us — just not necessarily TO us or FOR us. The choice is always ours and ours alone. God doesn't make our choices for us. It gives us what we expect. So we can refuse to accept our good; we can deny it; we can close our eyes and claim we don’t see it; but we can’t change the Nature of this Power that’s always there to give us our heart’s desire. All WE can affect is how much good we are willing to accept.”

Whenever an idea comes to us, especially a powerful, exciting, life-expanding idea; when we finally accept it and give it our complete attention, and put our passion behind it, that idea will always find a way to appear in our life. But first, it has to become alive in our consciousness. Once we allow it to do that, then we become the means by which it becomes a part of our experience. And nothing outside of us can stand in its way, because it is the Power of All Creation doing what it does, which is creating something fresh and new in our life.

“It’s one thing to believe in a higher Power, in whatever way, shape or form that takes for us. But to live our life in the way we truly want to live it, we also have to believe something else. We have to believe that we all have within us — because, once again, we are all perfect ideas in the Mind of God — that we have within us all the power we could ever need to create whatever we choose to create. You are the only thinker, the only decision maker, in your life. And I am the only thinker in mine.”

If we want to expand our life, and experience all the possibility that the Universe holds, we have to learn to recognize this Perfect Intelligence, this One Creative Power, this Thing from which all other things emerge, as not only the greatest power in the Universe, but as the ONLY power in the Universe. We need to see It as a Power for Good. We need to see It as unlimited, as forever giving all of Itself to its creation. We need to do this because, as Dr. Holmes says, “Our belief sets the limit of our demonstration of a principle which is Itself without limit.

It is on this Winter Solstice, the longest night of the year, that it is appropriate to talk about Light. It is during this Festival of Lights, that it is appropriate that we talk about Light. And it is this week that we celebrate the birth of a new Light, not just of something that happened thousands of years ago, but is happening within us each and every day. YOU are the Light of the World!

True salvation is not a place that we get to, like the ribbon at the finish line of a race. Salvation is also not an award we get for chalking up a certain number of brownie points over the course of our ninety or so years on this planet. And it’s not a win-or-lose proposition that is bestowed upon us by a “thumbs-up or thumbs-down” as we stand before St. Peter at the pearly gates.
Instead, salvation is a state of consciousness. It is learning to work in harmony with the Law of Life that is present within us and all around us, all the time. Once we understand this, we can allow ourselves to live life in the present, rather than worrying about some future judgment day that doesn’t really exist.

How does it begin? What are the trials and tribulations of this path? What do we figure out along the way? What we must remember when we get lost. What it is like to be off the path and then find our way back? Do you even know what direction this Path goes in? Why is it so lonely on the path? And why bother anyway?

In the deepest meaning of the word, gratitude means more than just being thankful. Most people think that thankfulness is something we express for something that just happened, or for something we just received. That’s the way much of the world sees it. But it’s also something we can express as a statement of faith about something we want to happen, or something we are ready to receive. That’s where the power of manifestation comes in. That’s the method the teacher Jesus used to accomplish all the things he accomplished. First he gave thanks, and then he made his affirmation, he made his demand on the universe. The things he did weren’t exactly miracles, in the strictest sense of the word; he was actually using a Law that any one of us can use, once we learn how to use it.
