Echoes of Emmet ~ In The Beginning, Me
THE first four words of the Bible are in the beginning, God.
This fact is very significant because it indicates that God must be the
beginning of anything worth while. Here it begins the Bible, and the text goes
on to deal with the creation of the universe, showing that God, of course, is
the real beginning of all things. If you take this thought in the beginning,
God, and make it the keynote of your whole life, you have found the secret of
success. If you make this principle the keynote of any particular enterprise,
that enterprise must and will be successful. The trouble with so many people is
that the actual keynote of their lives is in the beginning, me. They are not
always aware of this. As a rule they do not even suspect it; but the fact
remains. The real cause for the inharmony in the world is that so many
and nations, think in terms of in the beginning, me. Working from yourself as the center can only bring discouragement, depression, and failure. Working from God as the center, not nominally but actually, must bring success, for God is Creative Life. The Bible says, "I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end"-the First and the Last. This means that where God is the beginning you will find He is also the end, that your demonstration will be complete, perfect, and final.
The Fresh Beginning
When one awakes from sleep and so returns to conscious life, he is in a peculiarly receptive and impressionable state. All relations with the material world have for
a time been shut off, the mind is in a freer and more natural state, resembling somewhat a sensitive plate, where impressions can readily leave their traces. This
is why many times the highest and truest
impressions come to one in the early morning hours, before the activities of the
day and their attendant distractions have
exerted an influence. This is one reason why many people can do their best work in the early hours of the day.
But this fact is also a most valuable
one in connection with the mouldings of everyday life. The mind is at this time
as a clean sheet of paper.
We can most valuably use this quiet, receptive, impressionable period by wisely directing the activities
of the mind along the highest and most desirable paths, and thus, so to speak, set the pace for the day.
Each morning is a fresh beginning. We
are, as it were, just beginning life. We have it entirely in our own hands. And
when the morning with its fresh beginning
comes, all yesterdays should be yesterdays, with which we have nothing to do. Sufficient is it to know that the way we lived our yesterday has determined for us
our today. And, again, when the morning with its fresh beginning comes, all tomorrows should be tomorrows, with which we have nothing to do. Sufficient to
know that the way we live our today determines our tomorrow.
Ralph Waldo Trine - In Tune With The Infinite - 1907.
Treatment -THE GIFT OF GOD Joseph Murphy
"A merry heart maketh a cheerful countenance." The spirit of the Almighty pervades every atom of my being making me whole, joyous, and perfect. I know that all the functions of my body respond to this inner joy welling up within me. I am now stirring up the gift of God within me; I feel wonderful. The oil of joy and illumination anoint my intellect and become a lamp unto my feet. I am now perfectly adjusted emotionally; there is a Divine equilibrium functioning in my mind, body, and affairs. I resolve from this moment forward to express peace and happiness to every person I meet. I know that my happiness and peace come from God; as I shed His light, love, and truth to others, I am also blessing and healing myself in countless ways. I radiate the sunshine of God's Love to all mankind. His Light shines through me and illuminates my path. I am resolved to express peace, joy, and happiness.

Happiness Is Within Glenn Stanley Moran.
Happiness indeed is relative to each one of us. Certainly each of us expects to be happy, and we will be as we continue to grow and mature. Happiness is a reality that exists within us right now. Wisdom and understanding require that we expand our awareness within the universe of our own selves. As we begin to realize the inherent good within us, then we begin to see the inherent good within all people. We are able then to identify those aptitudes and qualities which we seek to express. Since we have recognized this goodness we can proceed to express it through our personalities. We pass beyond the bondage which sets limits upon ourselves - for only we have created this limitation. We are now free to live with wisdom and understanding. We become interdependent with life. We realize peacefulness. I recognize the truth of peace in God. God is loveliness and peacefulness. Infinite peace is given freely by the love of God. This is Reality. I am happy right now. This is true because I have become aware of the greater happiness within myself. I have unified with the Reality of God within me. Therefore, I realize that I am a co-creator with the universe. I create my own laws of happiness. This is true because I have uncovered the inherent goodness within myself. The possibility to expand is released into being as I give thankfulness for life. My word and my feelings are now released into the tenderness of God. And I am happy.
GOD IS NOT BECOMING Emmet Fox
GOD is infinite perfection and He is not concerned with
our limited ideas about time and space and matter. He is the High and Lofty One
that inhabiteth eternity, whose
name is Holy (perfect).*
God is not progressing or improving. What improves is our understanding of Him, and as this happens all our conditions necessarily improve too.
There never was a time in your history when God was not all that He is today, and there never can come a time when God will be any more than He is today.
Anything that you can need is part of God's expression
for you at this moment. Indeed, what we call a need or a wish is really
but our rather clouded sensing of the
presence of the thing itself.
There is no lack in Divine Mind--all lack is but your
failure to realize the Presence of God at that point.
There are no delays for the Holy One that inhabiteth eternity. You are His expression, and what you call delay is still but your failure to realize present good.
God is continually expressing Himself in new ways--but this is not improvement; it is unfoldment. Your life is simply part of this unfoldment, and that is the only reason
for your existing at all.
You are the living expression of God now-- and to understand this is salvation. *Isaiah 57:15
Stake Your Claim
You can have true success and happiness in life if you consistently put these truths into practice in your daily living. It is your God -
given duty to Stake Your Claim to peace, poise,
power, prosperity and health - and God expects you to be satisfied with nothing less. (Herman Wolhorn)
