The Science of Mind, by Ernest Shurtleff Holmes , at sacred-texts.com
I behold the Beautiful and the Pleasant.
My eyes see only that which is beautiful to look upon.
I will not see anything else nor believe in anything else.
I know that beauty has entered into my life, and will always remain there.
I see only the beautiful.
FRIENDSHIP OF THE SPIRIT AND OF MAN
The Friendship of the Spirit and of man is mine now and forever.
Even now I see the countless numbers of friends coming and going around me.
I enter into this friendship and this companionship with gladness and rejoicing.
I receive my friends.
HE WILLS ME TO BE
It was God Himself who willed that I should be.
I have no cares nor burdens to bear.
I am reminded of the great command:
"Come unto Me all ye who labor and are heavy laden and I will give you rest."
I do come into the Light and I do know that all cares
And responsibilities fall from me as I let the
Light of Wisdom direct my ways.
He wills me to be; therefore, I am.
I serve the world.
I wait upon the Lord within all men;
I call forth glory from On High through the minds of all people.
I obey the will of Him Who inhabits Eternity.
I do the works of Him Who dwelleth among the heavens.
My Lord within commands and I obey.
I do good to all people.
I SHALL NOT DOUBT NOR FEAR
I shall not doubt nor fear, for my salvation is from On High, and the day of its appearing is now at hand.
I shall not doubt nor fear, for my whole being responds to the realization of Life within and around me.
I shall not fear, for the Hosts of Heaven are waiting upon me and the Law of the Universe is my Salvation.
I shall not fear.
I WAS TOLD TO LIVE
I was told to live and to love, to laugh and to be glad.
I was told to be still and know of the One Almighty Power, in and through all.
I was told to let that Power work through and in me.
I believed that voice and I received my Good.
I am healed--The joy of Life.
I meditate upon the Law of God.
It is a Perfect Law and is now working for me and in and through me.
"The Law of the Lord is perfect."
I speak into that Law and it is done unto me.
Thy Law is in my heart.
The Love of the All Good is within me and through me.
That Love goes out to meet all who come into my atmosphere.
It radiates to all and flowing through all.
My Love within me is Perfect.
Thy Love within me is Perfect.
LOVE DISSOLVES ALL FEAR
Greater than fear is Love.
Love dissolves all fear, casts out all doubt and sets the captive free.
Love, like the River of Life, flows through me and refreshes me with its eternal blessings.
Love cannot be afraid; it is fearless and strong, and is mighty in its works.
It can accomplish all things through the Inner Light of that faith in the All Good,
Which fills my very Being with a Powerful Presence.
Love casts out all fear.
My affairs are in the hands of Him
Who guides the planets in their course,
And Who causes the Sun to shine.
Divine Understanding attends me on the Way,
And I shall not be hindered in my work.
My affairs are controlled by Perfect Intelligence,
And cannot be hindered from expression.
I know that all that I do is done from the One Motive:
To express Life; and Life will be expressed
In and through me. I cannot hinder it.
I am controlled by Intelligence.
My business is directed by Divine Intelligence.
The All-Knowing Mind knows what to do and how to do it.
I do not hinder, but let It operate in my affairs.
It prospers and directs me and controls my life.
My affairs are managed by Love, and directed by
Wisdom, and they cannot fail to prosper and expand.
My affairs are in His hands.
My profession is the Activity of the Great Mind working through me.
As such It is a Divine Activity and is constantly in touch with Reality.
I am inspired in my work from On High with lofty ideals,
And my thought is illumined by the All-Knowing One.
I am inspired.
There are no delays in the Divine Plan for me.
Nothing can hinder the operation of this Law unto my Life and Action.
Obstructions are removed from my path, and
I now enter into the realization and manifestation of complete fulfillment of right desires.
I do not have to wait, for the Law waits upon me at every turn in Life's road.
Now it is done unto me.
No one can lie to me; none can mislead me.
I am free from the belief in all lies and untruths;
I know and speak only the Truth, and the Truth alone can be spoken to me.
I know the false and can understand the Real.
I cannot be fooled nor misled; I am guided by Truth alone.
There is no lie nor liar.
There are no obstructions to Life's Path; no hinderance to man's endeavors.
Let my Word be the Law of elimination to all thought of hinderance or delay.
And let the thing that I speak come forth into manifestation at once.
I behold it and see that it is even now done, complete and perfect.
I receive now.
NO OVER-ACTION NOR INACTION
