Today’s idea does not describe the way you see yourself now. It does, however, describe what vision will show you. It is difficult for anyone who thinks he is in this world to believe this of himself. Yet the reason he thinks he is in this world is because he does not believe it.
My mind is part of God’s. I am very holy.
Say today’s lesson out loud and you may think it sounds arrogant. You may think that in no way can you declare yourself as being very holy. But the fact is that you are created by God, in His likeness. The declaration of today’s lesson states the truth about yourself. Your mind is part of God’s, because what is created by God is of God. And you are very holy, because you are as God created you.
The idea for today presents a very different view of yourself. By establishing your Source it establishes your Identity, and it describes you as you must really be in truth.
It’s a beautiful thing. You have confused cause and effect and now it is reversed into the true order. You are the cause of what you see, the world you see is simply the effect of your idea about yourself. Believe that you are separate from God and a world arises to support that. Declare that your mind is part of God’s, you are very holy, and vision is given you. Be honest with yourself today, apply the lesson to whatever you believe about yourself, good or bad, right or wrong.
I see myself as imposed on.
I see myself as depressed.
I see myself as failing.
I see myself as endangered.
I see myself as helpless.
I see myself as victorious.
I see myself as losing out.
I see myself as charitable.
I see myself as virtuous.
And then let it all go.
But my mind is part of God’s. I am very holy.
You don’t have to believe it, simply apply it. Your understanding is not required, it is in fact completely unnecessary. And that is the good news. These words will do the work, because they are given by God. They need no help whatsoever, only the little willingness to say them as often as possible today.
