Alan Cohen wrote: Your future isn't what it used to be.”

How true!! Every moment, indeed with every breath - every thought, we are creating a new future. Knowing this makes me realize the responsibilities and the joys of being aware of the Principles of Religious Science.

I was talking to someone the other day who’s life seems to be crashing in on them. As I listened, I could hear the Truth of something Rev. Helen Street used to say: “Listen to a person for 5 minutes and you will know the God they worship.” This person worshiped the God of disaster. Knowing what I know about Principle, I threw in some positive aspects they could focus on. They replied angrily saying they had taken all the classes and studied metaphysics for longer than I had, and that sometimes life just doesn’t work.

The author Stephen King wrote: "It is, after all, the dab of grit that seeps into an oyster's shell that makes the pearl, not pearl-making seminars with other oysters."

Isn’t this the Truth!! We leave classes or seminars filled with a new sense of purpose, but it isn’t until we put these Principles to work that they really get embodied. Dr. Holmes never promised that life would be challenge-free because of our studies, however, he did teach that we can approach our challenges in new ways. He wrote: “We must return the way we came. As little children, who know that life is good and to be trusted, we are to approach our problems as though they were not. Approaching them in this manner, they will vanish.”

This teaching is so simple, yet not so easy to live – at least not at first. The world wants us to be angry and afraid. The nature of the Universe is to be joyful and loving. We chose what we want to experience and in the choosing create our future. Choose a good one!!

I live and move and have my being in the Pure Heart of The Divine. It is filled with joy and wisdom. It is the Source and Substance of all there is. I have embodied all the qualities inherent in this One and it is good, very good.

I have surrendered my former attachments to the world ways of thinking. They are no longer my truth. Today I declare I am creating my future as a great blessing for myself and all who are in my atmosphere. I celebrate our abundance, our health, our loving relationships and our creative work. I celebrate using my mind to create peace and harmony in my world. I am so grateful I know I am the Beloved and am able to share love with ease.

I know we are all where we are by right of our consciousness. I now declare that my raising my consciousness has raised the consciousness of humanity. I celebrate our Oneness!!

My life is God’s life and I am making it a good one. For this I am eternally grateful. And so it is.
