YOUR FREEDOM TO BE
Freedom is more than the absence of bondage. Freedom is the activity of a free Soul or Spirit that knows the truth of its own identity and functions in the Creator’s plan of universal good. To be free we must accept and exercise the right of self-choice which constitutes individuality.
The opening chapter of Emilie Cady’s classic book: “Lessons in Truth,” poses the timeless question . . . “Bondage or Liberty, Which?” All suffering is the result of the belief that we are in bondage to the things and circumstances of the world. True freedom is a choice we make to live our lives in the spiritual awareness of the indwelling Infinite Presence and choose the level of consciousness on which to deal with human experiences.
We are here for a great and wonderful purpose and to take our own divine place in the universe, balancing serving the invisible and adjusting to the visible. Charles Fillmore wrote: “Freedom is the quality or state of being which results in regulating one’s life according to Principle, not according to what anyone else may think or say. This always leads us into paths of peace, harmony, and prosperity.”
Rev. Helice Greene
POVERTY TO POWER
Life requires thought to be linked to purpose or there is no intelligent accomplishment. Each one of us must set our sails rather than drift through life. Self-control and true concentration of thought power open the heart and mind to receive.
Without purpose it is easy to fall into the negative world of fears, doubts, and worries. Indulgence is not a part of the prosperity plan. A healthy attitude regarding giving and receiving opens the way to the universal resources.
Dreamers, those with the wider vision, are the Saviors of the world. Allow yourself to dream, hold the vision of the promised land and move forward to take possession of the good you are seeking.
Remember calmness of the mind is the jewel of wisdom. Within you is the Master Teacher saying, “PEACE, BE STILL.”
Let us use the affirmation: “I breathe in the breath of life and let divine wisdom guide me.
