Quote: The Law of Intention is Neutral

August 14, 2007

“In studying mathematics or simply using a mathematical principle, if we get the wrong answer in a sort of algebraic equation, we do not suddenly feel that there is an anti-mathematical principle that is luring us into the wrong answers…..Evil, and evil spirits, devils and devil possession, are the outgrowth of man’s inadequate consciousness of God. We must avoid thinking of evil as a thing in itself-a force that works against man or, against God, if you will.”

Eric Butterworth


Quote: Ideas are flowing

May 11, 2007

“Prosperity books use as examples tycoons such as Henry Ford and Andrew Carnegie to illustrate how you too can become a millionaire. The fact is, these people did not set out to make money at all. In each case there was the sudden or progressive unfoldment of an idea, which in turn was translated into automobile plants and steel mills. The real substance that made it all possible was ideas. Ideas are the flowing forth into mind of the wealth of the Universe.”

Eric Butterworth


Quote: Get what you want most

May 10, 2007

Here’s a quote from Catherine Ponder:

The word “receive” means “to accept.” Psychologists tell us that we can have anything we can mentally accept, but that we must mentally accept it first. A great part of the act of receiving is to accept the good you want mentally rather than fighting it mentally…

Giving is the first step in receiving. When you want to receive, give! However, there are three kinds of giving. All three are equally necessary to your long term growth and success.

First. Give to God, Put Him first financially. Why? As explained in Buddhism and elsewhere, this is the first quality to be developed in your character on the road to Enlightenment. Many conscientious people study self-help methods galore, yet do not receive the benefits from them that they should because they ignore this first step…

Second. Give to yourself. Yes, open your mind to receive by giving to yourself, because all progress begins with self-improvement. It is just as possible to overgive to others as it is to undergive to yourself. Overgiving to others and undergiving to yourself unbalances the law and keeps your good from coming through. You must first give your allention to the improvement and development of yourself before you can possibly help others

Third. After giving to God and to yourself, then give something to someone else. After you give something to someone else, bless whatever it is that you give. Bless the person or persons to whom you gave it. Then release both the gift and the recipient. Any man, woman, or child can transform his life by transforming what he gives out — what he gives to God, what he gives to himself, and what he gives out to others…

Many of the blessings you want most are within your reach! By your acts of giving, you open the way to attract the blessings you desire. These blessings have probably been waiting to reach you, but they were blocked by your own lack of giving. There was no free channel through which they could pass.

Catherine Ponder “Open Your Mind to Receive”


Quote of the Day: Security

May 2, 2007

“I am secure, for I know who I am: a richly endowed child of God. I am secure in all I do, for I know my oneness with the divine process. I am secure in all I have, for I know my treasure is in my mind, not in my things. I live my life from day to day as if God’s supportive substance were as exhaustless and dependable as the air I breathe, which it most certainly is.”

Eric Butterworth


Quote of the Day: Enough to go around

April 25, 2007

“God wills us to have everything. As we express life, we fulfill God’s law of abundance, but we do this only as we realize that there is good enough to go around – only as we know that all of God’s gifts are given freely and fully as the air and the sunshine”

Science of Mind – Ernest Holmes


Quote of the Day: Riches

April 24, 2007

“Riches begin with a state of mind, with definiteness of purpose, with little or no hard work. You and every other person ought to be interested in knowing how to acquire that state of mind which will attract riches.”

– Napoleon Hill, Think and Grow Rich


God is Peace by Ernest Holmes

March 7, 2007

God is Peace. This Peace which God is belongs to us and is some part of our spiritual nature. Whatever God is in the Universal, we are in the particular. The nature of God is incarnated in every living soul.

The Peace that is within you is not something separate from God. It is not something that bombards you from without. This Peace is something that expands from within. Always this Peace has been in you. Always this Peace has nestled at the center of your being, ready to reveal Its Perfection and Harmony.

Because Peace is within you, It is available. If It were somewhere else you would never find It. Act as though Peace already possessed your soul and It will possess it. Act as though Peace already emanated from your spirit and It will emanate from it. Speak Peace into confusion, and your Peace will heal that confusion.

This Healing Power is to be used and not merely believed in. There is a vast difference between believing in this Principle and using It. To believe in and understand this Principle is essential to the use of It.

Peace is at the center of your own soul; It is the very Being of your being. This Peace which is at the center of your being has never been disturbed. It has never been afraid. It never desired to harm anyone; therefore, It has never been hurt. How, then, shall you use this great gift which nestles at the very center of your being?

You are to use It consciously. You are to speak the Word of Peace wherever discord appears. And when you speak the Word of Peace let no doubt arise in your thought. You must know that Peace stills the tempest. You must know that your Peace has all Power because It is the Peace of God within you.
