Today’s reading reminded me that it’s all well and good to sit here and SPEAK the words that I am One with All There Is, and that the Divine lives in my heart, that I Am Love, and that the Presence of All that is Eternal is within me… but that it’s not in the saying it that has any power, it is in the actual acceptance and belief of these words, where the gift of Divine Presence exerts itself.
In the past, I have often wavered back and forth and up and down in my acceptance and acknowledgement of this fact that I AM (and everyone else is) a magnificent and powerful spirit embodying this human form, brought to Earth to act as one facet of the many faces of Love that the Divine shows up as. I have wavered in my acceptance of knowing that my every single act is guided by an underground knowing of my true path of service. I have had doubts, I have had disbeliefs, I have placed limitations upon myself that would not be had if I truly accepted myself as a face of Spirit made manifest into human form.
Today, and tomorrow, and the next day, I choose and will continue to choose to reaffirm my acceptance that I am a spiritual being having a human experience, and that the foundation of my essence is that of the Divine Itself, being made manifest into human form. I choose to affirm that I CAN hear my path calling, and I CAN visualize the steps I will make TODAY, I CAN do all that I have been placed within this lifetime to do, and I CAN serve in the highest, most expansive way possible to open the hearts of humankind to the Divine Love we are all here to come to know as our essence. I CAN because the only limitations placed upon me are the ones I place upon myself… and today, I CHOOSE to release those limitations in favor of opening my heart to the acceptance that I am a consciously powerful embodiment of Divine Love in human form.
I give thanks for this call to reaffirm my acceptance of this fact, and I let it be so, and so it is!
“I know there is a Presence that came with me when I entered this life, and I know that this same Presence will go with me when I leave this physical form, for It is the Presence of eternal Life, the Life that cannot die. And so I have no fear of the past, the present, or the future, but I am living today as though [the Divine] really were over all and through all. I feel this Presence as life, love, and goodness, and experience Its action as power and certainty. It is with me today, making my life whole and complete.” – Ernest Holmes, 365 Science of Mind
