A Message from Silent Unity 


Dear Datty Worn Friends: 

We think there is no finer group of persons in 
all the world than you, our DaiLy Worp readers. 
We are grateful for the knowledge that, spread 
out over the face of all the earth there are persons 
such as you who are incorporating Truth into your 
daily living. You cannot know, for it is impossible 
to estimate, the effect you have upon the thought 
of the whole world. The hope of the world lies 
with persons with right ideas. It is in that sense 
that you are the hope of the world. Your letters 
to us reveal a wonderful spirit and a depth of un- 
derstanding that is beyond the ordinary. 

Everything in DatLy Worp—the lessons, the 
articles, the poems, the pictures—are for you. 
They are selected with you in mind; and we are 
happy when you write to us and tell us that our 
choice has been a good one, that the things we are 
guided to include in DatLy Worp are the very 
things you need in your everyday living. 

We are thinking of you, our readers, at this 
Easter tide. We see you expressing the spirit of the 
Resurrection. We see you rising to new heights in 
consciousness. We see you making real overcom- 
ings. Your triumphs may seem small to you, but 
who can judge the growth of the soul, who can

know how great is the change wrought by even 
one understanding thought in the heart ? 

If for any reason you are depressed or down- 
hearted, unhappy or defeated, take this thought: 

I am the resurrection and the life. I rise trium- 
phant out of every trial. 

This is one of our favorite prayers in Silent 
Unity. We know that the I AM in us is the very 
Spirit of the resurrected Christ. 

As you use this affirmation you will find your 
heart lifted; you will find your mind set free from 
unhappy thinking. At Easter time the whole world 
is lifted by the remembrance of one man’s over- 
coming. It is a time when people everywhere dwell 
on the triumphant Christ. It is a time of hope and 
faith and light. There is no better time to make 
personal overcomings than at this time, for we are 
buoyed, as it were, by the power that is generated 
by the resurrecting Spirit of Christ that is renewed 
in the world of men. 

We love you, our DatLy Worp readers, we ap- 
preciate you, we feel close to you in spirit. We 
think that it is something of a miracle in itself to 
have a quarter of a million persons praying daily, 
studying daily, thinking constructively continually. 
You are a force for good in the world. You are in 
fact the resurrecting spirit of Christ in action! 
Silent Unity. 











“They Will Be Still” 


Doris RUTH PEELER 





Ye 


a4 OR EVERYTHING there is a season, and a 
= time for every purpose under heaven .. . 


a time to keep silence and a time to 








speak.” 

Nothing in all the world is more eloquent in 
its time than utter silence. Nothing so increases 
the impression made by any sound as a moment of 
absolute silence following it. In moments of great 
emotion, such as fear, sorrow, joy, love, or high 
admiration, one finds that there is nothing to say. 
Silence alone comes easy, and silence alone suffices. 

Mindful of this, think of God's love for you 
which has blessed you with a perpetual place in 
His presence, which has placed you under the care 
of an omnipotent, omniscient, omnipresent Spirit, 
which has endowed you with the power to have 
and to do and to be all that you aspire to have or 
do or be. 

Think of the miracles of His work all about 
you, His sheltering, protecting, guiding, blessing, 


4 















healing, prospering presence ever with you. 

Think of the wealth of the written word, un- 
folding knowledge, or beauty, or mystery, telling 
of wonders past and present, and promising prog- 
ress to come. 

Think of your power to bless others from the 
very place where you now are by your silent, om- 
nipotent affirmation of the Truth for them and 
about them. The wealth of the kingdom of God 


.is yours to have, to use, to give away. 


Think of how you live, move, and have your 
being in the presence of God, your Father, and 
how all the world is your home because it is your 
Father’s world. 

“Think on these things.” 

After a moment of such contemplation, have 
you anything to say? Or is your heart filled with 
a deep, quiet, all-encompassing sense of love and 
gratitude? 

This, dear friend, is real silence. It is the “‘sound- 
less word” of praise that wells up in those who 
consciously dwell in the Father’s house. 

“Blessed are they that dwell in thy house: they 
will be still praising thee.’ Praising God, “they 
will be still . . . For the Lord God is a sun and 
shield: the Lord will give grace and glory: no good 
thing will he withhold from them that walk 
uprightly.” 








Mturacles 


R, H. GRENVILLE 


Who with rejoicing plows the earth 

Or tends some green and growing 
thing 

Is partner to the Lord of life 

In the hushed miracle of spring. 


Whoever makes a house a home, 

Strong-walled, with peace about, 
above, 

Beholds in quiet commonplace 

The timeless miracle of love. 


Who gathers up the gleaming grain 
Or draws his harvest from the sea 
Beholds with simple gratitude 

The wonder of sufficiency. 


And all who turn to Him in prayer 
When quiet falls and labors cease 
Must somehow come to understand 
The inward miracle of peace.

As a Man Thinketh 


MARTHA SMOCK 


RE YOU perfectly satisfied with your life as 
A it is? Do you have all the health, happi- 
ness, and prosperity that you need or de- 
sire? Surely your answer is no. This negative an- 
swer may seem to indicate inner dissatisfaction 
or soul unrest, but paradoxically such a negative 
answer is a normal, positive one. It would be sad 
if there were no urge for growth and individual 
fulfillment, if souls were not stirred by the swiftly 
moving current of life. Dissatisfaction—not fret- 
ful discontent—with one’s life and achievement is 
a sign of inner spiritual aliveness. 

One must do more than wish for a happier way 
of life. On all sides we see persons who desire 
more from life but who remain disgruntled with 
their lot and lead embittered, frustrated lives. The 
difference between them and the person who 
turns dissatisfaction into a positive, productive at- 
titude of mind lies in the realization on the part of * 
the latter that within him he has the power to re- 
shape his life, to transform his lot. This power is 
the Spirit of God indwelling, the Christ in man. 

When a person comes to the place where he 
feels that he has reached a “dead end” in his life, 
the question that he needs to answer is ‘Why is 





7 








my life as it is?’ Others may guess as to the rea- 
sons, they may even be able to offer helpful and 
constructive suggestions, but the real answer to 
this question can be found only in the silent secret 
recesses of the person’s own heart and mind and 
soul. ‘‘For as he thinketh within himself, so is he.” 

If we want a fuller, freer, happier life, we 
should stop and ask ourself what our attitude 
toward life is. When we face ourselves in the 
mirror of Truth we may see false beliefs and 
anxious attitudes of mind that we have allowed to 
gain a foothold in our consciousness. But if the 
mirror of Truth reveals that which needs to be 
banished, it also reveals to us the image of that 
perfect self of us which is waiting to find expres- 
sion through us in the glory of the freedom of 
Spirit. “Now the Lord is the Spirit: and where 
the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty. But we 
all, with unveiled face beholding as in a mirror 
the glory of the Lord, are transformed into the 
image from glory to glory, even as from the Lord 
the Spirit.” 

If you are in ill-health, if you are in need of 
more prosperity, if you are unhappy, troubled in 
mind, if you are in inharmonious circumstances, 
thank God that you do not have to resign yourself 
to any such situation because it is His will. It is 
our will, not God's will, that keeps us from en- 


8 















joying the best in life. “Not my will, but thine be 
done” takes on new meaning when we realize the 
great truth that God is good and that His will is 
only good. “Thy will be done” is in reality a prayer 
for a healthy body, an alert and active mind, a 
happy heart, and a life filled to the full with 
blessings. 

We have been from the beginning created in 
God's image and after His likeness. In every man 
burns the inextinguishable spark of divinity, the 
Christ Spirit. This is why every man knows him- 
self to be better than the world knows him to be. 
And this is the reason for his dissatisfaction with 
himself and with his mode of living. What every 
person, whether he is consciously aware of it or 
not, wants most of all to do is to show forth more 
of God, to kindle the inner spark to a shining 
light. In those moments of insight, when we see 
life not as a brief span but as a whole, we know 
and feel that we have a destination, a purpose. 
We cry out from the depths of our soul, “For what 
have I been born?” The answer, if we listen in the 
silence, is sure to come, and it will be the voice of 
the Spirit of God within, saying: 

“Behold, my servant whom I have chosen; 

My beloved in whom my soul is well pleased: 
I will put my Spirit upon him.” 

Your divine purpose is to be God’s beloved 


9 








child and to make His Spirit manifest. How. won- 
derful it is to know that you are beloved of God, 
that He has chosen you for a divine destiny, that 
He has put His own Spirit in you! 

In your divine nature you are more illumined 
than your most lofty thoughts, more loving than 
your most unselfish deeds, wiser than your clearest 
reasoning, more fearless than your bravest acts. 
You are in spirit and in truth the kind of person 
that you long to be. Regardless of how much or 
how little you have been expressing of your divine 
nature, you have the possibility of true greatness. 
You can make the latent potentialities within you 
manifest realities by realizing that you are always 
and forever God’s image and likeness and by act- 
ing upon that realization. Thinking as a child of 
God, acting as a child of God in even the most 
trivial affairs of your daily life will have a won- 
derful and transforming effect upon your mind, 
your body, your environment, your world. 

And through your faithful and loving prayers 
you can call forth the divinity in others whom you 
wish to help. You can help them to express God's 
image and likeness in their mind, body, and affairs 
by seeing in them the perfection in which they 
were created. We are all beloved children of God, 
chosen for a divine destiny, and God has put His 
own Spirit in us.

Dear Lord, I wish that I might spend this 
day 

With You in prayer; deep in a wooded 
glade 

Or in a silent church where I could kneel 

Alone; someplace so still that in the quiet 

I should find Your peace within my troubled 
heart. 

But there are things that I must do today— 

I cannot go apart—small tasks that must 

Be done for those I love to keep them safe 

And fed and warm, sun after sun. 


Dear Lord, I cannot seek a quiet place 

Or find a shrine at which to pray, and yet 

I seem to feel Your presence, Lord, today 

Beside me as I do each homely task. 

Clean plates, fresh clothes upon a line, a 
child’s 

Sweet smile, a song upon a peddler’s lips, 

Through these I find Your love; and as I 
serve 

Today Your peace pervades my heart, 

Although I have not time to kneel and pray. 


















The Prayer Circle 


ELIZABETH SEARLE LAMB 


‘ AVE YOU EVER stood in a quiet twilight 
H and thrown a pebble into the still waters 
of an icy mountain lake? Have you 
watched as the pebble produced its first circle, 
then another and another? A prayer should be 
like that tiny pebble, producing its first reaction 
in your own soul, in the innermost recesses of your 
mind and heart, and then gradually widening its 
effect until it embraces all earth and heaven. 

In the stillness of your mind, begin your prayer. 
Bless your body, let the healing forces flow freely 
through every cell of it, raising it surely, steadily 
to perfection. Make no attempt to heal specific 
ills; rather see the oneness, the wholeness of your 
body. Be not ashamed of your body. Be proud of 
it! Let it radiate the glory of its perfection. 

Widen the circle of your prayer to include 
those nearest to you in spirit—family, friends, 
home, and work. See all filled with joy, see them 
prospering in the things of earth and the things 
of heaven. Feel your oneness with those you love 
who physically are far away. Place them fearlessly 
and freely in God’s care, knowing them to be 
guarded, upheld, and divinely led by the same 
Spirit that leads you into still waters of peace.

Bless your home and your work with the har- 
mony and divine efficiency of Spirit. 

Your prayer circle will grow as you include 
every acquaintance in your blessing, knowing for 
each that there is only one presence and one power, 
that each is a perfect expression of the one great 
God force. Let this harmonizing flow of spirit free 
your mind from every trace of prejudice, fault- 
finding, or resentment. 

Bless the land where you live. See the great 
spirit of divine wisdom, justice, and love hovering 
over it to protect and guide it. Know that those 
who lead and govern are divinely inspired, that 
they are strengthened so that they may bear their 
responsibilities easily, ‘snow that they are guided 
in making every decisio.\. 

Finally the circle of your prayer will widen 
until it has no consciou: limits. The spirit of the 
one Mind, God, spread over the whole world. 
Peace and love are the nly realities. Every in- 
tolerance must go. There is no room for evil, for 
untruth, when this great force for good reaches 
out and out through a prayer begun in a human 
heart. 

The circle of good animated through your 
prayer does not stop. It can never stop, but reaches 
on, spreads ever wider, in every direction until it 
embraces all earth and heaven.

THE BRIGHT NEWNESS OF SPIRIT SMILES 

THROUGH MY COUNTENANCE AND RADIATES 

HEALING JOY THROUGH EVERY WORD |! 
SPEAK. 


URING THIs exhilarating springtime, when 
DPD all nature is breathing out her fragrant 

loveliness upon me, a freshness of spirit 
is also filling my soul. The smell of new grass, the 
greenness of eager buds, and the general atmos- 
phere of the fullness of things to come, is a chal- 
lenging invitation to the innate splendor in me. 
Every day I am becoming more sensitive to the re- 
newing flow of life that thrills my being through 
and through, and my step is light and free, for I 
know that this life is my energy and power. The 
forgiving love of His presence within me gently 
blows away all the cobwebs of past mistakes, and 
the refreshing rains of His abundant mercy washes 
me clean. 

I am glad to be alive! I am glad that God is my 
Father! I am glad that there are so many who re- 
veal His presence to me! The joy that wells up 
from the depths of my being springs forth to greet 
the joy in all. 


- & Thou hast put gladness in my heart—PsALms 4:7.

THROUGH MY REALIZATION OF THE POWER 
OF CHRIST IN ME, I AM FREE FROM EVERY 
THOUGHT OF LIMITATION. 


and when we realize that the same Spirit is in 

us that was in Him, we are enabled to rise 
above limitation of any kind. Nothing could en- 
slave Him or hold Him in bondage, for He knew 
that the power within Him was greater than any 
power in the world. When we come into this full 
realization, limitations will drop away and we 
shall be conscious of the perfect freedom that 
Jesus knew. 

No person or situation can control you or bind 
you when you speak the word of Truth with the 
authority that comes from your realization of your 
Christ dominion and mastery. Fear, insecurity, 
lack of confidence, false desire, and all limiting 
beliefs will disappear when you assert your divine 
authority. When you are no longer in bondage to 
limiting beliefs, you will no longer be in bondage 
to limiting conditions and you will be conscious 
of your final freedom in Spirit.

NOT MY WILL BUT THINE, O LORD, BE DONE. 


ANY PERSONS hesitate to ask that God's 
N / | will be done in their life, because they 
are not quite sure but that God's will 
includes suffering or misfortune of some kind. 
Nothing however could be further from the truth, 
for God's will is good will. God's will for us is 
absolute freedom from every limitation. It is our 
divine birthright to be happy, healthy, and abun- 
dantly supplied with all good things, but we must 
accept this good, and not resist it by willfully 
holding onto thoughts of unkindness and limi- 
tation. 

Jesus said, “It is your Father’s good pleasure to 
give you the kingdom,” and on another occasion, 
“Tt is not the will of your Father . . . that one of 
these little ones should perish.” In the garden of 
Gethsemane Jesus prayed that God’s will be done 
in His life, and the result was glorious resurrec- 
tion from all sense of limitation. 

Christ reveals the nature of God's will toward 
His people, and Christ is the very incarnation of 
everything that is beautiful, helpful, and kind. 


@ He will heal us... he will bind us up... . he will 
raise us up.—HoOs. 6:1, 2.

MY HEART IS JOYOUS IN THE KNOWLEDGE 
OF THE POWER OF CHRIST IN ME TO OVER- 
COME ALL OBSTACLES. 


Tis Is Good Friday, and to many people 


it is a day of sadness because they remember 

the crucifixion of Jesus. In Truth however 
the thought of the Crucifixion holds no feeling of 
depression, for it was only the prelude to His res- 
urrection. 

He died, but He rose again! Keep this thought 
uppermost in your mind today. Keep your heart 
joyous in the realization that through His trium- 
phant Spirit within you you too can meet every 
experience serenely and courageously and over- 
come all obstacles. Jesus was the Way-Shower, 
and when you can follow His example and say, 
“Father, into thy hands I commend my spirit,” 
you free yourself from suffering and open the way 
for spiritual rebirth. 

Make this day then a day of gladness, a day 
of spiritual strength and faith. Keep your vision 
fixed steadily on the overcoming power of the 
Christ and let His Spirit radiate through you to 
bless and uplift all whom you contact.

Saturday anne 


I BEHOLD THE CHRIST IN YOU. 


OW SHALL I help another person? How 
H shall I pray for him ? 
We help another person most by be- 


holding the Christ in him, that is, by beholding a 
spiritual perfection in him in spite of appearances. 
If he needs healing, mental or physical, we behold 
the Christ in him by knowing that the very spirit 
of life and peace and wholeness is in him. We do 
not think of his case as hopeless, we do not think 
of him as being bound by heredity. We think of 
him as a spiritual being, created perfect. We hold 
to this vision of perfection regardless of the con- 
ditions that seem to exist in his body or mind. 
Our true thought about him is more of a blessing 
than we can possibly know, for it is a thought of 
strength in the midst of weakness, it is a thought 
of life in the face of unbelief. 

If you desire to help someone through prayer, 
keep faith with the Christ in him by beholding in 
him the perfection in which he was created. When- 
ever you think of him say to him in the silence of 
your mind: “I behold the Christ in you.”

erations ... Christ in you—Cov. 1:26, 27.

I REJOICE WITH GREAT REJOICING THIS DAY, 
FOR THE GLORIOUS PRESENCE OF JESUS CHRIST 
IS RESSURRECTED IN MY BEING. 


the Lord is bursting forth from my overflow- 

ing heart, and every cell and atom of my be- 
ing is singing His praises. The resurrected pres- 
ence of Jesus Christ, His life, His love, His peace, 
permeate my entire being. In my life, within and 
without, is thrilling evidence of His renew ing, re- 
vitalizing, transfiguring activity. 

Through the resurrected Christ Spirit in the 
midst of me I step forth from the tomb of limited 
thinking and living into the boundless realization 
that I am free Spirit. The resplendent light of His 
presence illuminates my mind with wisdom, electri- 
fies my body with life, and floods my soul with 
peace. In this resurrected realization of my oneness 
with Christ, I pass unharmed through the closed 
doors of adverse conditions, healing as I go, and 
with Him at Emmaus I break the bread of my tran- 
scendent joy, life, and love and generously give 
to all.

I PROMPTLY AND LOVINGLY ATTEND TO ALL 
THE AFFAIRS OF MY LIFE, AND GOD BLESSES 
ME. 


OST OF US could learn to make more ad- 

| \ / | vantageous use of our time. We some- 

times find ourselves tense and worried 

because we seem unable to accomplish the neces- 
sary things in the allotted time. 

One way to begin to make the best use of our 
time is to do the things we need to do at the time 
they need to be done. If we are not in the habit 
of promptly attending to our tasks, we should 
consciously work to acquire this habit. When we 
are tempted to put off doing something that 
should be done, if we will not let ourselves pro- 
crastinate, we shall have a feeling of self-approval 
that makes all things easier, we shall find that by 
doing all things in order we have more time for 
the things we enjoy. 

If we make promptness a habitual characteristic, 
our daily life will begin to take on a pattern of 
order and rightness, success will attend our en- 
deavors, and we shall have peace of mind and 
pleasure in living.

STRONG AND WHOLE. 


WELL TODAY in the consciousness of the 
1D. presence of God’s life in your body. Feel 
this divine current flowing through every 
nerve and cell in your body, strengthening you 
and restoring you to wholeness in every part. Re- 
lease every thought of fear and tension and anx- 
iety and relax completely in mind and body. Look 
away from any appearance of imperfection and 
claim your divine birthright of perfection. 

Your mind and body will respond quickly to 
words of life spoken in faith and assurance, and 
mental and physical inharmonies will disappear. 
Take time each day to affirm your oneness with 
God’s life and energy. After you have spoken the 
word, become still and let the realization of His 
strength and vitality permeate every part of your 
being. Feel His life soothing every inharmony and 
quickening you into renewed and radiant health. 
As you keep your thoughts centered on life all ills 
will disappear and you will be restored.

I AM NOT AFRAID, FOR GOD IS MY HELP IN 
EVERY NEED. 


me a spirit that is equal to all things. When 
I feel like falling back in fear, the Spirit of 
God in me inspires me to go forward in faith. 

I am not afraid of other persons, for I know 
that they have within them the Spirit of God, and 
where God is there is nothing to fear. I look 
upon my association with other persons as an op- 
portunity to learn more of God, for the created 
reveals the creator. I know that to learn to love 
other persons, to learn to get along with them, to 
learn to understand them is the way to overcome 
any fear of them. 

I am not afraid of the new, for I know that 
God is in every situation, in every place. He is 
present in the unfamiliar as well as the familiar. 
Wherever I go God goes with me. Wherever I find 
myself God is already before me in that place. 

I am not afraid, for God is my help in every 
need.

I LET THE SAME MIND BE IN ME WHICH WAS 
ALSO IN CHRIST JESUS. 


66 ET THIS mind be in you, which was also in 
Christ Jesus.” 

What an invitation is offered to man 
in these words! What tremendous significance 
there is in the word “‘let.” 

How do we let this mind which was in Christ 
Jesus be in us? By recognizing that it is already 
within us; by coming into agreement with it in 
thought. We let this mind be in us every time we 
think life, love, harmony, joy, peace, or any of 
the perfect ideas in God-Mind. 

We do not need to strain in our effort to be per- 
fect. We can know that the same mind that was in 
Christ Jesus is in us and that our desire to be more 
perfect is the urge of this mind to express itself 
through us. 

Let this same mind be in you which was in 
Christ Jesus. Joyously think about the ideas in God- 
Mind. Lovingly rest in the consciousness that this 
mind which was in Christ Jesus is now functioning 


freely through you.

BEULAH VICK BICKLEY 


When passing round a mountainside 
I saw a snowy dogwood tree. 


My breath came quick; my lips were 
mute ; 


I worshiped in humility. 


As one forspent I worshiped there 
The God I could but dimly see; 


His presence seemed so very fair, 
In perfect beauty blessing me. 


Unuttered prayers escaped my heart, 
Enriched my thought, and set me free. 
My being was enraptured by 

The dogwood’s quiet simplicity.

THE SPIRIT OF GOD IN ME IS MY TRUE GUIDE 
AND MY TRUE FULFILLMENT. 


HE SPiriT of God in me leads me ever for- 
| ward and into the places and circumstances 
that satisfy my desires and fulfill my needs. 

I am in no way bound to the past. I let go of all 
ideas that restrict my free expression and retard 
my soul growth. No matter what my early train- 
ing has been, if it does not permit free, loving, 
constructive expression, I let it go. I accept but 
one authority, the Spirit of God in me. 

I have no fear of the future. No matter what 
the circumstances of my life are at the present 
moment, if they are not satisfying and fulfilling, 
there is a way of thought and action that will 
bring about change in me and in my life. The 
Spirit of God in me reveals this way. 

The Spirit of God in me—the spirit of love, 
of wisdom, of courage—inspires my mind, lifts 
my heart, and guides my way. 

It is in the Spirit of God within me that I place 
my faith. 


Blessed is the man that heareth me, 
Watching daily at my gates. 
—Prov. 8:34.

I EXPRESS DIVINE LOVE THIS DAY. 


E CAN measure our spiritual progress 
\ " / by our reactions to relatively small mat- 
ters. 

We may think that we understand divine love, 
but we are far from understanding it perfectly if 
we “fly off the handle” when something goes 
wrong, if we criticize other persons, if we are 
irritable or cross at home or in the office. 

If we find ourselves giving way to unlovely 
feelings, if we find ourselves speaking unlovely 
words, it is a certainty that we need to learn more 
about love. 

We can learn to control our feelings not through 
our will but through love. When we are tempted 
to lose our temper we can regain peace in heart 
and mind by quickly turning our thought to love. 
If we feel angry with another person we can si- 
lently say to him, “I love you.” We may resist 
such a procedure and tell ourselves that this is 
weakness or foolishness, but the proof of its value 
is in the feeling we have when we are at peace 
and loving in our heart as compared with the feel- 
ing we have when our temper takes over. 


© Ye shall abide in my love.—JOHN 15:10.

I TURN TO MY FATHER IN PRAYER, KNOWING 
THAT MY GOOD COMES TO ME. 


good comes unto me. In deep faith, believ- 
ing, I realize my good in the very act of 
prayer. 

I cannot pray to my Father with doubt in my 
heart, nor with fear, for in the very act of prayer, 
in close communion with Him, all doubts are 
removed, all fears dissipated. The table of my 
heart is set to receive His bounty. My cup is up- 
turned to receive His overbrimming goodness. 

If there is a question in my mind, in the mind 
of God is the answer. If there is a need in my 
heart, in the heart of God is my good. God is 
the answer to all my prayers. I have only to ask in 
faith to receive my right answers, to open the way 
for my good to come to me. 

In the deeps of me I know that God will supply 
my good, that even as the lily turns its chalice 
toward the refreshing rain so I can turn my heart 
and life toward God and receive my good. 


I TURN TO my Father in prayer, and all that is

] DO EVERYTHING THIS DAY AS UNTO THE 
LORD. 


E CAN BE happy in following the routine 

\ " / of our daily living if we think of our- 

selves as doing everything as unto the 
Lord. When we consciously do anything as unto 
the Lord, we think of it differently, we think of 
ourselves differently, and a new spirit fills us. 

For instance, if we feel resentful toward our 
employer, we can begin to work as unto the Lord, 
and our resentment will disappear, our work will 
be pleasanter for us, and our relations with our em- 
ployer will be improved. 

Whatever we do with good grace we do unto 
the Lord. Whatever we do that helps make life 
more pleasant we do unto the Lord. 

When we are loving in our heart we are loving 
unto the Lord. When we are joyous and at peace 
in ourselves we are singing praises unto the Lord. 

Today can be one of the happiest, freest days 
you have ever spent, even though it may seem un- 
eventful, if you make it eventful in your heart by 
doing all as unto the Lord.

I EXPRESS THE SPIRIT OF PRAISE. 


SPIRIT OF praise is most important to 
A happy living. Logically our praise should 

begin with praise for God, our creator, 
for we cannot truly praise God’s creation without 
praising Him as the Creator. 

Paradoxically, we find it difficult to praise 
either God or man if we cannot praise and appre- 
ciate ourselves. The persons who are the most 
generous in their feelings toward others are those 
who have developed self-confidence and an appre- 
ciation of their own abilities. Those who truly 
praise God are those who have found Him in their 
own heart, who feel the wonder of His presence, 
who feel the wonder of themselves as created in 
His image and after His likeness. 

When we understand and appreciate ourselves 
as children of God we are more sensitive to the 
glory of God that surrounds us. We see all per- 
sons as children of God. We look on them with 
appreciation and understanding. We surround our 
family, our friends, our associates with a feeling 
of well-being, engendered by our spirit of praise. 





@ The living, the living, he shall praise thee.—Isa. 
38:19.

GOD IS BLESSING ME AND MY HOME. 


REAL HOME is created not out of stone or 
A wood or brick but out of such intangibles 
as love and faith and peace. Its beauty 
does not depend on design or decoration but on 
the spirit expressed by those who dwell within it. 

If the spirit of your home needs strengthening 
you can help to change the general atmosphere. 
You can bless your home. You can bless the mem- 
bers of your family. If you feel that the quality of 
love is lacking in your home, you can help to pro- 
vide it by being more loving and understanding 
yourself. If the quality of peace is not to be found 
within your walls, you can invite it in by opening 
your own heart and mind to the peace of Christ, by 
being peaceful yourself, by promoting peace 
among the other members of the family. 

We are automatically drawn to light. We like 
light, sunny rooms in our home. Even more do we 
like lighthearted persons in our home. You can 
help to bring light into your home by refusing to 
be heavy or sad or downhearted. And those who 
live with you will bless you forever for the joy 
you bring them.

mood that is to pervade us most of the time. 

It is our habitual thinking that creates the 
mood that in turn forms our disposition. When 
we let our thoughts and feelings be cheerful, 
kindly, and constructive, when we display intelli- 
gence and love in our own circle, we not only create 
our own happiness but we are instrumental in 
restoring the kingdom of God on earth, by in- 
ducing the same response in our fellow men 
and the living environment we are exposed to. 
We then create a spirit of concord and harmony 
that gradually expands as it passes from us to 
others, until it touches the whole world. 

We can speed this process by turning to the 
Spirit within ourselves and letting this Spirit 
control our every thought and emotion until we 
are one with it, for in it lies satisfaction not only 
for ourselves but for those of whom we are a patt.

I AM SO FILLED WITH THE LOVE AND UNDER- 

STANDING OF GOD THAT I ADJUST EASILY 

AND HARMONIOUSLY TO ALL PERSONS AND 
ALL CIRCUMSTANCES. 


B= DAY brings the need to adjust to new 


personalities and new circumstances. Those 

persons who keep their hearts filled with 
love and understanding make these adjustments 
easily and harmoniously while those who resist 
change and temporary inconvenience have prob- 
lems. 

A heart filled with love understands that change 
is essential if there is to be growth and an ex- 
pansion of consciousness. A heart filled with love 
understands that every new personality and every 
new circumstance offers something of value and 
worth. The person whose heart is filled with love 
understands that it is his own attitude that makes 
life a problem or a joy to him. He keeps his mind 
relaxed and his nature flexible, for he under- 
stands that this is the way to enrich his own life 
and to give his blessing to others. 

A heart is kept filled with love through prayer 
and by keeping its attention upon the good.

THROUGH MY REALIZATION OF THE POWER 

OF THE VICTORIOUS SPIRIT OF GOD IN ME I 

AM EQUAL TO ANY OCCASION AND ABLE TO 
RISE ABOVE EVERY DIFFICULTY. 


[Te IS A spirit in you, the very spirit of 
God, that gives you the power to rise trium- 
phant above any difficulty. Whatever you 
may be called upon to face, whatever challenge 
you may have to meet, you can turn within for 
strength and courage and inspiration to over- 
come every obstacle. 

Nothing is impossible to God, and His Spirit 
within you is equal to any occasion, greater than 
any need, mightier than any problem. Wherever 
you are, He is with you, guiding and sustaining 
and upholding you. He is a tower of wisdom, 
strength, and good judgment within you, ready to 
help you through any difficulty however small or 
great it may seem to you. 

Learn to rely on this Spirit of God within you 
and acknowledge its overcoming power. All will 
be well with you and your world when you con- 
sciously realize that God is your help in every need 
and let His Spirit find expression through you.

THE LIGHT OF SPIRIT DAWNS IN ME, AND I 
SEE CLEARLY.—UNIitry CLAss THOUGHT. 


UR LIFE grows in breadth and beauty as we 
() develop our spiritual vision. God has 

given us the faculty of clear vision, the 
ability to see the eternal truth that exists behind 
and beyond the outer appearance. What we see 
with our physical eyes is transitory, and it may 
appear to us to be evil; but what we see with our 
inner or spiritual eyes is always the good, the 
eternal verity that does not pass away. 

So long as we look at the happenings in our life 
from a personal or materialistic point of view, we 
encounter perplexity, annoyance, difficulty; but 
when we lift up our eyes to behold the dawning 
light of Spirit, the shadows flee away and we 
see truly. 

God has given us the light of His Spirit so 
that we may see what is His great and good will 
for us. This light now dawns for us as we sur- 
render our self-will and affirm our readiness, our 
willingness to see things as He has established 
them, as they are in His sight.

ALL “THAT THE FATHER HATH” IS NOW MINE 
BY DIVINE INHERITANCE.—UNItTy CLASs 
THOUGHT. 


HERE ARE many, many instances of sons or 

| daughters who through ignorance or inad- 

vertence have failed to claim what is right- 

fully theirs from their parents. Mentally we say 

to ourselves that people who are so ignorant or 

careless do not deserve to receive what they are 
entitled to. 

Yet how often we ourselves through inad- 
vertence or ignorance fall short of claiming our 
inheritance from our Father, God. We are His 
children, the heirs of all that He is and has, with 
the right to receive more than enough of His sub- 
stance to meet our needs. His substance is in- 
finitely more than sufficient to meet the needs of 
all His children, so that what we receive does not 
deplete His supply or deprive another person of 
what is rightfully his to receive. 

Accept this truth now and claim your inherit- 
ance. All that your Father has is yours. Receive it 
abundantly and rejoice! 


© That ye may know ... the riches of the glory of his 
inheritance.—EPH. 1:18.

I AM THE LIVING EXPRESSION OF GOD'S IDEA 
OF PERFECT MAN.—Uniry CLAss THOUGHT. 


O's: ALL divine ideas are perfect because 


God, their creator, is perfect, it follows 

logically that since man is a creation or 
idea of God he is perfect. This perfect idea of man 
exists in the realm of Spirit, where all is perfec- 
tion, but it does not yet extend to the manifest 
world about us. 

Although our manifest world appears to us to 
be full of imperfect people, including ourselves, 
let us remember that this appearance of imper- 
fection is not Truth. Let us cast off the limiting 
beliefs, the discouragements that would hold us 
back and faithfully, resolutely affirm our belief 
in the perfection that is ours in Truth. 

God is blessing us now with new life, new 
strength, newness of mind and body and spirit. 
He is rewarding our belief in perfection by heal- 
ing us, by increasing our capacity to express life, 
by cleansing us of all that is unlike Him. Rejoice, 
child of God, as you claim your perfection! 


© Not that I have already obtained or am already made 
perfect: but I press on .. . forgetting the things which 
are behind.—PHIL. 3:12, 13.

MY MIND AND HEART ARE ATTUNED TO GOD, 
AND I ACCEPT MY GOOD NOW. 


OD DOES not withhold answers to prayer. 

God's response to prayer is instant. But 

because we may have a feeling of being 
unworthy of God’s help or may doubt the effec- 
tiveness of our prayer, we are not always pre- 
pared in mind and heart to accept our answer. 

God responds as quickly and as generously to 
one of His children as He does another. No matter 
what condition we are praying about, God's re- 
sponse is now. No matter how little attention we 
have given to prayer, how shortsighted or unap- 
preciative we have been, or how unworthy we have 
regarded ourselves, God's response is instant. 
These attitudes of mind and heart may keep us 
from recognizing and accepting our answer at 
once, but they do not affect God's love or delay 
His response. 

When we learn to let go of any thought about 
God or about ourselves that may give us a sense of 
uncertainty about prayer, we find we are contin- 
uously attuned to God, and our answers to prayer 
come quickly and effectively.

MY WORK IS GLORIFIED IN THE SERVICE OF 
GOD, AND I GIVE THANKS UNTO HIM. 


each task is glorified by Him. My work is 
my prayer to God, and I strive to do it so that 
it may appear worthy in His eyes. 

I know that in His wisdom He does not judge 
my success by the amount of my earnings, nor does 
He measure its importance by any man-made 
standard of fame. A task well done and lovingly 
performed wins the stamp of God’s approval, for 
it contributes to the good of those who are His 
children. 

I find joy in my work, and I am blessed with an 
abundance of God's good. My heart finds a song 
of happiness to accompany the day’s tasks and 
nothing I do is without importance; nothing I do 
is drudgery. 

I invest love in my work, for in these tasks I 
serve God as He has called me to serve. Though at 
this moment I may not see the extent of my service, 
I know that through loving performance of my 
work I bring good to my fellow man.

I HAVE FAITH THAT GOD IS GOOD AND THAT 
MY LIFE IS IN HIS LOVING CARE. 


HERE IS A divine balance in life. Were we 
T able to see life as a whole we should be able 

to understand that injustice or inequality 
are not permanent conditions; they cannot touch 
the Spirit in us, they cannot retard our eternal 
progress, or keep our own from ultimately coming 
to us. 

It may seem that we are unjustly treated; there 
may not seem to be a divine balance in our affairs, 
but if we keep faith in God and trust in the truth 
that all things are working together for good, we 
shall be able to meet every circumstance with for- 
titude, we shall be able to keep our heart free 
from bitterness, we shall be able to find peace of 
mind and contentment in our everyday living. 

Know today that the spirit in you blesses your 
life and affairs and brings you through every unto- 
ward experience. Have faith that God is good 
and that your life is in His loving care. Have faith 
that nothing can retard your eternal progress. 


@ He that searcheth the hearts knoweth what is the mind 
of the Spirit... and we know that to them that love 
God all things work together for good.—Rom. 8:27, 28.

and heart loving and understanding in the 

face of obvious selfishness and pettiness. But 
we must do this if we are to be at peace within 
ourselves and if we are to do our part in har- 
monizing our world. 

It may not be easy to be generous and forgiving 
toward those who do not seem to take this attitude 
toward us; but which is more rewarding, the deep 
peace that comes through living up to the highest 
that we know, or the uneasy sense of triumph that 
comes from showing up another in the light of his 
shortcomings and failures ? 

We may feel that we should teach another a 
lesson, that we should revenge a wrong, that we 
should prove the superiority of our own mind. But 
this only prolongs misunderstanding and gives no 
real satisfaction. The way to have a peaceful mind 
and heart is to consecrate ourselves to the expres- 
sion of loving and understanding thought and ac- 
tion.

hymn:

For the Truth has made me free. 
Perfect peace! Yea, naught shall mar it,

from sickness, for He is my perfect health. I am 
free from sorrow, for His love infolds me ten- 
derly. I am free from lack, for I am one with Him 
who is the source of my abundant supply. I rise 
triumphant above all limitation, and I declare my 
freedom! 

Perfect peace! No matter what yesterday held 
for me, no matter what today may bring, I walk 
serene and peaceful, for God is in my thoughts, 
and I leave it all to Him. Nothing in the world, 
no person or circumstance can mar my peace. In 
His presence of love my mind is filled with love. 
In His presence of peace I am at peace.

pressed confidently and effectively, bring 
him prosperity and appreciation. 

Most of us have been influenced and guided in 
our thought about work and money-making by 
those who had charge of us in our formative years. 
Sometimes those early influences did not favor our 
individual aptitudes and the inclinations of our 
own nature, and work has seemed difficult and 
prosperity hard to achieve rather than natural and 
joyous. 

It is wonderfully freeing and satisfying when a 
person reaches the place in spiritual understanding 
where he knows that it is right for him to work and 
express himself along lines that give him pleasure 
and a sense of fulfillment. 

Through prayer we discover our own individual 
abilities and inclinations, we learn how to express 
ourselves in order to gain soul satisfaction.

Pray for the Unity Temple 


Prayer has played a significant role in the build- 
ing of the new Unity Temple in Kansas City. 
Many times difficult decisions involving the future 
have had to be made. In each case knowing the 
Truth has given us the confidence to go ahead; in 
each case the results of these decisions have in- 
variably revealed the efficacy of prayer. 


We ask you now to join with us in continued 
prayer. Not only do we need and want your bless- 
ings, but we feel that you have a high interest in 
the temple project and would like to pray with 
us for its fulfillment. 

We need your prayers for guidance, that right 
decisions may be made; for supply, that the funds 
necessary for building the temple may come as 
needed; and for wisdom, that the completed 
temple may be truly consecrated to the service of 
all who enter its doors. 

With the temple project based squarely on the 
idea of service, we have assurance of its firm and 
sure foundation in Spirit. With all Unity people 
working and praying together we can hasten the 
day of completion of the Temple of world-wide 
Unity.

every prayer comes—with harmony, grace, and power. 154 pages—a 
soul-stirring message in poetry, prose, affirmations, and practical 
question helps to re-establish you in the Truth of your being. 


THE SUNLIT WAY 

In this book Mr. Wilson shows you how to set your feet upon the 
triumphant way that Spirit has ready and waiting for you. The Sunlit 
Way is a friendly faith builder. Its message is: Understand the law, 
apply it, and reap the sure reward. “Results are certain, and they 
become manifest on every plane of action that you open to them,” 
says Mr. Wilson. 


HAVE WE LIVED BEFORE? 

This book gives Mr. Wilson's views on the subject of reincarnation, writ- 
ten from the premise that there is but one life, which “did not begin 
when we were born, nor does it cease if we die, any more than we 
begin to live when we put on a garment, or cease to live if we lay 
it aside.” Among the topics he discusses are “Evidences of Reincar- 
nation,” ‘Reincarnation and the Bible,” “What We Remember—and 
What We Don't.” 


For inspiration and for the establishment of yourself in Truth, 
d to your Truth library these .books by Ernest C. Wilson. 
They are priced at $1 each.

You Already Have Your Prosperity! 


“So I tell you, whatever you pray for and ask, believe you have 
got it and you shall have it.” These words of Jesus (Moffatt 
translation) give His secret of effective prayer: Believe you 


have got it. These words of Jesus cover your prosperity toof 


Your supply is at hand. Everywhere about and within you 
God’s substance is ready and waiting to be molded into visible 
good by your thought and word. When you can believe that 
you have already received, your thought and word come forth 
with faith and power to act upon heretofore unseen substance, 
which then becomes manifest as your good, your prosperity, 

An excellent way to pray believing you have already re- 
ceived is to follow Unity’s Prosperity Bank plan, which con- 
sists in daily speaking the word and trusting steadfastly in your 
good. Part of the daily plan is blessing a coin and placing it in 
the Bank as evidence of your increasing faith. When the Bank 
drill is completed the amount thus saved may be used to order 
DAILY WORD gift subscriptions. 


Unity School of Christianity, 917 Tracy, Kansas City 6, Mo. 

Please send me a Prosperity Bank and enter a year’s subscription for Daily Word 
for each of the persons here named. I will save $3 for the subscriptions, which are 
to begin at once. I ask the prayers of Silent Unity for my success.

Still, Still nith Thee 


Still, still with Thee, when purple morning 
breaketh, 


When the birds waketh and the shadows flee; 
Fairer than morning, lovelier than the daylight 
Dawns the sweet consciousness I am with Thee. 


Alone with Thee amid the mystic shadows, 
The solemn hush of nature newly born; 
Alone with Thee in breathless adoration 
In the calm dew and freshness of the morn. 


So shall it be at last in the bright morning 

When the soul waketh and the shadows flee; 
Oh, in that hour, fairer than daylight dawning, 
Shall rise the glorious thought I am with Thee. 


I cannot lose Thee, still in Thee abiding, 
The end is clear how wide soe’er I roam; 
The law that holds the worlds my steps is guid- 
ing, 
And I must rest at last in Thee, my home. 
—H. B. Stowe.
