February Emmet Fox E-Zine
There is no difficulty that enough love will not conquer, no disease that enough love will not heal; no door that enough love will not open; no gulf that enough love will not bridge; no wall that enough love will not throw down; no sin that enough love will not redeem…It makes no difference how deeply seated may be the trouble; how hopeless the outlook; how muddled the tangle; how great the mistake. A sufficient realization of love will dissolve it all. If only you could love enough you would be the happiest and most powerful being in the world.
"We have to love life. We have to be interested in ourselves - and anyone who is not, has lost the savor of life. This is not the same thing as being selfish. If we love life and are interested in ourselves in a spiritual sense, we are interested in the quality of our thinking. We are interested in bringing it into harmony with Divine Love. We want conscious union with God so we have a greater awareness of good in our lives." Emmet Fox (Diagrams for Living)
Encircling Love Clara Palmer (Early New Thought teacher and writer)
It was the arms of Jesus Christ extended upon the cross that revealed to the world the all encompassing love of God. It was the arms of Jesus Christ infolding little children as He blessed them that revealed the incomparable mothering love of our Father-Mother God. The shoulder joint in which the arms are joined to the body, is the most freely movable joint in the body. It betokens your free use of the love of God. You have it within you to encircle all things with love, and love never fails in its divine overcoming. How different the arms of God, the power of divine love and intelligence that encircles humanity with loving-kindness, from the arms of men, when they are lifted up in strife or greedily reaching out for material possessions. How different the arms of Jesus Christ, extended in good will and peace, from the destructive arms of war, the forces of greed, hatred, suspicion, and fear. The arms and hands are the "doers of the word," the executors of the Golden Rule. Your arms may be extended from your shoulders to scatter blessings of life, love, and substance, or they may form a circle that will forever remind you of the all encompassing love of God. Bless your arms with the realization of spiritual action and power. You can infold anyone who is suffering from sickness, anyone who needs solace or comfort, anyone whom God directs to you-you can encircle one and all, even those whom you may have termed enemies-with the divine love that has quickened your soul. You can lift up your arms in praise and thanksgiving to God. You can reach down and give some fellow creature a lift. The arm of God is not so shortened that it cannot save, neither need your arms be hampered, crippled, swollen, or impaired so that they cannot do the blessed work of the Father. Bless your arms. Praise them, saying: I give thanks to God for perfect arms. I bless Him that it is now possible for me to extend His gifts to the world. I am thankful that I can encircle all people, all things with love, even as Jesus Christ has done. Bless God for my arms. Bless Him for His love that has made them strong, free, symmetrical, and perfect.
Affirmation - Florence Shinn
Divine Love, through me, dissolves all seeming obstacles and makes clear, easy and successful my way.
The heart is the love center. Love is the world’s greatest attractive power. The electromagnet that lifts the ingots of steel must first be charged with the electric current, for without the current it is powerless. So the heart of man . . . must be aglow with God’s love; then it becomes a magnet drawing all good from every direction. God has amply provided for everyone, but the provision is in universal substance which responds only to law. Through the application of the law the substance is drawn to us and begins to work for us.
It is the law of love that we have whatsoever we desire. As a father gives his children gifts for the Lord gives to us, because of love. When we desire aright, we put our thoughts into the supermind realm; we contact God-Mind and from it draw the invisible substance that is manifest in temporal things. The substance thus becomes a part of our mind and through it of our affairs. We draw spiritual substance to ourselves just as the magnet draws the iron. When we think about the love of God drawing to us the substance necessary for support and supply, that substance begins to accumulate all around us, and as we abide in the consciousness of it, it begins to manifest itself in all our affairs. . . . Build up a positive thought atmosphere filled with love. . . . Begin now to talk plenty, think plenty. . . . It’s lots of fun, and, better than that, it actually works.
Affirm: I express the love of Christ in my affairs and I attract to me an abundance to meet every need.
God loves spiritual man, and that love is expressed according to exact law. It is not emotional of variable, nor is there any taint of partiality in it. You are primarily a spiritual being, the expression of God’s perfection, the receptacle of His love; and when you think and act in the consciousness of perfection and love, you cannot help being open to the influx of God’s love and to the fulfillment of His divine purpose, which is health, the natural, normal health that is the inheritance of every human being.
God’s man is hale, whole, hearty. This is true. A spiritual realization of health is the result of holding in consciousness a statement of health until the logic of mind is satisfied and man receives the assurance that the fulfillment in the physical must follow. Jesus understood and demonstrated this law perfectly. He was so much at one with the principle of health that He only needed to say, “Thy faith hath made thee whole” or Lazarus come forth, in order to bring into evidence the perfect demonstration.
Jesus did His healing spiritually. He knew that the blessing of health comes through the exercise of faith on the part of the man who seeks it, that faith opens the mind to the influx of power from on high, and that the power of the Highest heals all diseases both of soul and of body.
Affirm: The love of Christ fills my mind and body and I am whole and free

From: Katerina, Switzerland. I would like to thank you from the bottom of my heart for your prayers! Little Melina-Faith is perfectly healthy! As soon as she was born doctors suspected a rare incurable condition with little life expectancy. The possibilities were high and symptoms existed. But God had other plans and the miracle of prayer happened! All the test results came out fine! She is perfectly healthy! Thank you from the bottom of my being!
From: Al, Nevada. I had been so angry with life and the people in it. It
wasn't until I understood the real meaning of the Yoga of Love until, I had a
realization of Love from that very writing by Emmet Fox. I have been able to forgive, let go and let God. Thank you Emmet, wherever you are in this great universe.
From: Andy, Philippines. I have been following your face book feed for quite

MY PRAYER By: Hilda Kellis
Eternal God, this is my prayer,
That I may see YOU everywhere,
In lowly task and highest place,
in each and every precious face.
Show me, dear Lord, someway, somehow,
To live eternal life right now!
Let all that I should undertake
Be done with grace and for Your sake.
Eternal God, the victory's won,
This is my prayer: Your will be done.
In all I think and say and do
My prayer of thanks is said to You.
Wishes for a blessed and beautiful February!
