Dr. Holmes writes in the Science of Mind:
"In the Subjective Mind of man, we find a law obeying his word, the servant of his spirit."

How many of us can approach Principle as if It were our servant?

I've never had a servant, however I have had cleaning ladies … (and once a cleaning man). I leave a note on the counter in the morning and expect that when I come home at night the work I had requested to be done, will be. And it always is.

Our use of The Law can be as simple as that. It was for Jesus, and he said, "All this that I do, ye shall do, and even greater." For some reason, we don't believe him. It might be because thinking of God as our servant is just too much for us to handle! Why would this great all powerful, everywhere present, infinitely intelligent, unnameable Being want to serve us?!?!

Because it is It's nature to do so, that's why!

Holmes also writes "We are so One with the Whole that what is true of It is also true of us. We are one with unmanifest Substance whose business is to forever take form and we are one with the Law which gives form. The entire order is one of spontaneous being and spontaneous manifestation. The Law follows the word just as the word follows desire. The desire arises from the necessity of the Universe to become self-expressed. The Law follows the word. The word follows the desire. The word gives form to Substance and the Principle of subjective Law produces the manifestation. There is no effort in the process whatsoever."

There is no effort in the process whatsoever! We don't have to be "good little boys or girls", we don't have to make sacrifices, we don't have to sit in a certain position, or say certain words. We speak our word, paying attention to the outcome we desire, and let it go. That's it. The Law, as our servant, does all the work.

Let's say we're looking for a job. We get an idea of what sort of job we'd like to have and the qualities it holds for us. We get a picture in our mind of ourselves doing the work. We release it to Spiritual Law, knowing our right and perfect job will present itself to us. Then with an attitude of expectancy, we let it go. Before we've even finished expressing our desire, the Law has gone to work for us. We can trust it.

Our problem is that we don't believe it's this easy. Instead of anticipating going to work, we start to doubt the Law. We become focused on the "What if's … what if it doesn't work, what if I can't find a job, what if I can't pay my bills, what if I lose my home, etc." Unfortunately, focusing on the "what if's" brings more to worry about. The Energy goes where the attention flows.

This week let yourself command the Law with a sense of authority, and a willingness to let it be done for you. There is no effort in the process whatsoever! You, Blessed One, have a Divine Right to command the Law.

There is a Power for Good in this Universe and I can use It. This Power is absolutely everywhere, including within me. It is ready and able to honour my requests, fulfill my requirements, and guide me along my Path.

I celebrate my deepening awareness of this Truth. I realize the Law is working through me at all times. I now choose to focus on the good I desire instead of the "what if's". I release fear back into the nothingness. I let the Law work for my highest good and greatest joy.

I declare that every area of my life reflects The Power at work. This is good, very good. I am so grateful for my awareness of my part in the co-creation of my universe. I celebrate my use of The Law.

I release these words into the Law of Mind, knowing they are already so. And So It Is.
Another bit of inspiration from a 200 Street church marquee:

"Courage is fear that has said its prayers."

So many of us are afraid of fear. Because we're afraid of feeling it, we can't help but focus on it, letting it play over and over again in our minds, getting bigger with every repetition, until it becomes so big, we make ourselves sick or attract an accident or some other uncomfortable experience. Yet fear is just a part of the human experience. It is what our ancient brain developed to keep us safe – what propelled our flight or fight experiences.

Today's fear is about the future – Fantasized Events Appearing Real. Once we understand this, we no longer need to let it immobilize us. We can acknowledge it, and move forward.

How do we do that? Preventative maintenance!! We do our spiritual practices – meditation, Spiritual Mind Treatment, paying attention, being grateful, etc., on a daily basis. We refuse to focus on that thing that is making us afraid.

What about when we are in the middle of a fear-filled experience you might ask –a difficult medical diagnosis, a breakup, lack of funds, etc.? If you have been doing your spiritual practices, you already know there is an Infinite Intelligence working for and through you. You can pray and trust! If you haven't been doing them, you can still pray and trust. Courage is fear that has said its prayers. Courage starts in our hearts and this is where Spirit resides.

Gratefully I celebrate the powerful Presence that is within us all. It is infinitely intelligent, unconditionally loving, and serves us through our use of the Law of Attraction.

I know life happens as I believe and feel it will. I acknowledge my fear – but do not dwell in it. As I breathe deeply and center myself in God Life, fear disappears. I KNOW who I am, Spirit in form.

I choose health, wealth, creativity and love. The whole experience of The Divine, everything I experience with my senses and more, is embodied in my subjective mind, and as I live my life from a deep centered place, I know Divine Mind is assisting me in wise choices and the release of fear.

How grateful I am that my life is God's Life, and it is reflected in my world. I release these words into the Law of Mind knowing they are so. And so It is.
