[ On Wings of Praye 





lf 





CLARA May ROWLAND 


y’ YOU realize that for over sixty years 
] prayers have never ceased in the Unity 
work ? 

You have all read about the “light that burns 
all night” in the prayer room in Silent Unity. 

We in Silent Unity start the day by joining 
with the more than half million DatLy Worp 
readers in meditating on the lesson for the day, 
and we continue throughout the day with special 
prayer periods and special prayer meetings. 

Silent Unity is one place where the worker 
feels better to come to work than to stay home, 
because of the atmosphere of prayer. 

Charles Fillmore was frequently asked, ‘How 
do you account for the phenomenal growth of 
the Unity work?” He had this question in mind 
when he wrote in Unity magazine: 

“What really is the technical or detailed ex- 
planation of the law that we put into action? I 
should say that from the very beginning of our 
work everybody connected with Unity was asked 

























2 





= 











to make prayer the keynote of every act. We have 
literally fulfilled the command ‘Pray without 
ceasing. We prayed without ceasing; and the 
older the work gets the more we pray . . . Not only 
do we pray without ceasing but Unity readers the 
world over are asked to join us every day in 
prayer.” 

The Fillmores chose for the symbol of Unity 
not the cross, which to so many persons repre- 
sents the suffering of Jesus, but instead, they 
chose the winged globe, which represents the re- 
lation existing between spirit, soul, and body. 
Through the transcending power of Spirit man’s 
soul and body take wings. And it is through 
prayer that man’s spiritual nature is aroused. 

Unity’s greatest contribution to the field of 
prayer is the affirmative prayer. It is in contrast 
to the petition, ‘"O God, give me this, if it be Thy 
will,” which implies that perhaps God’s will is 
negative. In Unity we emphasize the prayer of de- 
cree or agreement; however, the affirmative prayer 
is not unique with us. Jesus used the affirmative 
prayer. Isaiah and many of the other prophets of 
old used this type of prayer. For instance, this 
prayer of David is an affirmative prayer: 

“My eyes are ever toward the Lorn, 

for he will pluck my feet out of the net.” 
Or this one from Isaiah 12:2: 


3 









“Behold, God is my salvation; 
I will trust, and will not be afraid; 

for the Lorp Gop is my strength and my song, 
and he has become my salvation.” 

Many affirmative prayers use the I AM identifi 
cation. For instance, “I am the ever-renewing, ever- 
unfolding expression of infinite life, love, and 
wisdom.” 

Prayer works. The thousands of letters we re- 
ceive weekly in Silent Unity testify to this. Prayer 
moves upon mind, body, and affairs and heals, ad- 
justs, and prospers. We believe that Silent Unity 


is successful because we are organized for constant ‘ 


prayer. 

Perhaps you have never tried the efficacy of 
prayer, or perhaps you have tried it and have not 
found the good results that you expected imme- 
diately. Then perhaps you have thought, “Why 
pray?” You pray to appropriate food for your 
soul. 

As you pray, you generate the spiritual energy 
that renews and heals you in mind, soul, and body. 
One of the best things about prayer is that it 
awakens and arouses within you the self that is 
capable of standing regardless of what comes. 
A good affirmation is this, “Through the Christ in 
me my spiritual nature is now aroused.” Thus, 
there is awakened within you the knowledge that 


A 

















the Christ in you, as it was in Jesus, is closer than 
breathing, that “in him we live, and move, and 
have our being.” 

“They that wait upon the Lorp shall renew 
their strength; they shall mount up with wings 
as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and 
they shall walk, and not faint.” 

The waiting upon the Lord comes before the 
mounting up with wings. We usually interpret 
this as meaning: “I’ve said my prayer, and now, 
Lord, I’m waiting. What are You going to do 
about it?” And usually the waiting is very im- 
patient waiting. 

To wait upon the Lord means to tune our con- 
sciousness to the presence of God, to wait for that 
animating presence which is within and all about 
us, ready to reveal itself. 

When we take time to wait upon the Lord, to 
commune with Him, He reveals Himself to us 
as the answer to our need. The outer thing we 
think we need may not be immediately forth- 
coming, but we shall discover that “they shall 
mount up with wings as eagles’ is symbolical of 
our ability, gained through prayer, to rise into 
a higher and freer and happier way of life. We 
tise on the wings of prayer into a realm of joy, 
and we retain the beauty of the experience in 
every act of our lives. 





What steps should you take in order to find 
health? Turn to the Lord. Wait upon the Lord. 
He will inspire you with ideas of life and strength 
and peace as you recognize Him as the source of 
life within you. In the beginning He breathed into 
you the breath of life, and He is continuing to 
breathe through you as the breath of your life. 

Acknowledge God as renewing, invigorating 
life, expressing itself in every part of your being. 
If you wish to abide in the strength that never 
grows weak or weary, acknowledge God as your 
unfailing strength. 

Commune with God, talk with Him, and He 
will say to you, “I will; be thou made clean.” Ac- 
cept willingly in your mind the healing, and it 
will express itself in your body. Agreement in your 
body consciousness is necessary; then the very 
cells and atoms of your flesh respond. 

After you have made your inner contact with 
God, after you have opened your mind, your 
heart, and your soul to His outpouring of love 
make a simple affirmative prayer for health, such 
as this: 

“God is my health, I can’t be sick, 
God is my strength, unfailing, quick.” 

Where we need to strengthen ourselves is in 
the realm of mind, into the depths of which we 
have poured all types of negative beliefs. When 


6 








i ae ee al le ali al i a) i”

we do not get quick results in the body we must 
change our thinking. So we say: “I am open and 
receptive in every phase of my mentality to God- 
given ideas. I meet in agreement with the truth 
of my spiritual nature. Thoughts of the past that 
have held me in bondage to negative conditions 
of any kind are entirely erased, and from this 
time forth I meet in agreement with the ideas of 
my spiritual nature that build constructive con- 
ditions in my body.” 

Nothing is expressed in the body that has not 
had access through the mind. Know that once the 
mind fully accepts the truth of your spiritual 
nature it is as though you open a door. All the 
true ideas about your strong, healthy body flood 
the cells and atoms of your flesh. There are no 
closed doors in the body consciousness. All the 
work is done in the realm of mind—and when the 
doors are open to the health, vitality, and life of 
the spiritual nature God’s Spirit floods your en- 
tire being. It renews, revitalizes, rebuilds, and 
heals every part of your being. In this way you 
are reborn into an entirely new life. 

If you want right results and answered prayer, 
you must stand by the prayers you have uttered. 

If you are praying for peace, be peaceful. If 
you are praying for divine order, be orderly. Re- 
member that prayer changes you. It brings you to 





7 









the place where you are working with your prayer 
for its right fulfillment. You are responsible for 
at least half the answer to your prayers. 

We frequently pray for some good thing, but 
we continue in the same old grooves; we continue 
with the same feelings we had before our prayer. 
This is the reason Silent Unity emphasizes the idea 
of the continual practice of the presence of God. 

If in your prayer you are not getting the an- 
swers that you wish, let me ask you this question; 
“How are you getting along with yourself?” You 
will notice that I did not ask, “How are you get- 
ting along with your family, your job, your busi- 
ness associates?” But “How are you getting along 
with yourself?” 

When you get so that you criticize your wife, 
your husband, your children, your associates, and 
everything else, you need to answer the question, , 
“How am I getting along with myself?” 

Study your attitudes, your outlook. Are they 
true? 

Recently I read a book on prayer—which 
emphasizes the idea that all of us have need for 
the prayer of conversion, the prayer that changes 
our character. Conversion means, in its simplest 
form, giving up the false for the true. In con- 
version we completely surrender the old, false 
habits for the new and beautiful way of life. 


8 

















We need conversion not only for the healing of 
mind and body but for the changing of the dis- 
position and for the upliftment of the whole being. 
We cannot have a conversion and retain the old, 
false thoughts. Our prayer is for the purpose of 
changing us not the other fellow, circumstances 
or conditions. 

The idea of trying to change other persons 
through prayer without changing ourselves re- 
minds me of a story about a man who visited the 
Ozarks and asked a native for directions. He asked, 
“Is this the road back to Kansas City ?” 

The native answered: “Not exactly. This road 
moseys along for a ways, then turns into a hog 
trail, then it turns into a squirrel track, and finally 
it runs into a scrub pine and ends in a knothole.” 

And so it is with any prayer that does not deal 
with changing ourselves for the better. It gets us 
nowhere. 

The quickest and best way to get a conversion 
is to follow the teachings of Jesus. 

Jesus not only said, “I am the light of the 
world,” but also “Ye are the light-of the world.” 

The Christ in you says, “I am the light of the 
world.” As you follow the light of the Christ 
within you, you will never be in darkness. You 
will walk upon an illumined path and rise on 
wings of prayer into a new and glorious life!

NO MATTER HOW HAZARDOUS THE CONDI- 
TIONS BEFORE ME, I AM STEADY, STRONG, 
AND SURE THROUGH THE CHRIST IN ME. 


E ARE not promised that things will al- 
\ x / ways be easy for us, but the promise 
is given us that we shall always be able 


to meet any condition courageously. 

Paul states that “God . . . will not suffer you 
to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with 
the temptation make also the way of escape, that 
ye may be able to endure it.” 

We have inner powers, inner resources beyond 
our realization. When we think that we are not 
strong enough or courageous enough to meet some 
situation we underrate our ability through God's 
power within us to conquer all things. 

I shall rely upon my inner strength. It will meet 
my every need. I make my appeal to this inner 
strength—the Christ within me—for help to meet 
any situation, and my prayer of faith is answered 
instantly. 

I am steady, strong, and sure through the Christ 
in me. 


#@ God ... will not suffer you to be tempted above 
that ye ave able.—I Cor. 10:13.

other person if his words and actions do not 

measure up to our expectations of him, or 
if he is living his life in a way that does not meet 
with our approval. However, every person has a 
tight to his freedom in Christ. 

Sometimes we are overzealous in trying to di- 
rect another’s way for him, to point out to him 
what we consider to be right for him. But we 
cannot know another’s heart and mind, we can- 
not know his aims and desires, we cannot choose 
his path for him. Only his own indwelling Christ 
is an infallible guide for him. 

As we are faithful in beholding the indwelling 
Christ in other persons, we are able to look be- 
yond the things they say or do to the perfect self 
that is constantly seeking expression. 

Every person in his own way is growing and 
unfolding spiritually; and as we remember this, 
we are loving, understanding, and tolerant of all.

in my love; even as I have kept my Father's 

commandments, and abide in His love. 
These things have I spoken unto you, that my 
joy may be in you, and ¢hat your joy may be made 
full.” 

I accept these words of Jesus as an assurance of 
joy here and now. They assure me that joy and 
happiness do not depend on other persons or on 
the conditions of my life but on my obedience to 
God's law. 

These words of Jesus assure me that no person 
or condition has power to bind me, to distress me 
or make me unhappy, that there is a divine joy to 
be obtained direct from God even in the midst of 
adverse and challenging experiences. This joy is 
the joy of oneness with God, the realization of 
His loving presence always with me. 

As I learn to abide in His love, I draw to my- 
self harmonious and happy experiences. Abiding 
in His love, my way is made easy, my burden is 
light, and my joy is made full.

I BEHOLD THE PERFECT GOD SELF IN EVERY 
LIVING PERSON. 


Father, let there be peace on earth, and let 

it begin with me.” We believe that peace 
must begin in the individual heart, in the indi- 
vidual attitude toward humanity. 

Today, as we consider this lesson, let us all 
pause to spiritualize our attitude toward humanity. 
Let us look beyond outer differences such as race, 
creed, and color and acknowledge the God self 
in all. Let us realize that God's life animates 
everyone, that He illumines everyone, that His de- 
sire for peace is inherent in every heart. 

Our recognition of the divinity in others is like 
the sun’s rays that penetrate the seed in the 
ground. When we behold the Christ in others the 
Christ in them is quickened into activity in their 
hearts and lives. And the wonderful part about 
beholding the Christ in others is that as we do 
so we discover His divine presence in our own 
midst.

part of the great universal life that is eternal. 

This takes us out of the limitations of time 
that we place upon ourselves and gives us a broad- 
er view of what we accept as “our life.” 

All of us live at certain levels of consciousness. 
We either feel that our lives are vital, enduring, 
with unlimited possibilities, or we feel that we 
have only a little measure of life that will barely 
endure. 

The life that I arouse through affirming that 
“Christ lives in me” is sufficient life to renew, to 
heal, and to restore my body and sufficient to sup- 
ply me with endless endurance. As this life flows 
through me, I find myself radiantly alive, alert, 
awake, enjoying every moment. 

I now affirm that I am alive forevermore in 
Christ Jesus, that the life I live is part of the 
great universal life that is eternal. The life in me 
is God's life—ceaseless, limitless, perfect, endur- 
ing.

TODAY I SERVE THE LORD WITH JOY. 


HEN YOU awake in the morning do you 
\ . / look forward to a bright and joyous day 


or to a day of monotonous performance 


of duty ? 
If you look upon your daily living as tedious 
or monotonous, you need to “look . . . carefully 


how ye walk.” You need to revise your outlook 
on life. You need to see the Christ in yourself, 
in others, and in everything about you. You need 
to recognize the joy to be found in serving your 
heavenly Father. 

God created the world good, and in His divine 
plan there is a right place for everyone and every- 
thing. The work we are doing now is but one of 
the many steps that will lead us to our right place, 
to the place the Father has promised us. When- 
ever we do not seem to fit into the scheme of 
things we need to remember that we open the 
way for greater good as we do the job at hand 
with a joyful spirit. 

Whatever task you may be called on to do-to- 
day, do it in the thought that you are serving God. 


# A righteous man shall receive a righteous man’s re- 
ward.—MaAtT. 10:41.

I CHOOSE THIS DAY TO TAKE THE ATTITUDES 
THAT SERVE THE CAUSE OF HARMONY. 


ACH DAY we choose whether we shall serve 
the cause of harmony or inharmony. The 
choice we make day by day determines 

whether we have harmonious lives or inharmoni- 
ous lives. 

For instance, when a difference of opinion arises 
between ourselves and another person there is a 
harmonious way to handle the difference and an 
inharmonious way. We can become tense and as- 
sertive and serve inharmony, or we can try to un- 
derstand the other person and his viewpoint and 
serve harmony. 

When those around us are swept up in the nega- 
tive aspects of a situation and become pessimistic 
and fearful we can succumb to the mood and serve 
inharmony, or we can remind ourselves of the 
presence of God’s justice and goodness in every 
situation and serve harmony. 

In our homes when tempers are on edge and 
nerves are taut, we can contain and discipline our- 
selves and serve harmony.

Friday 

I GIVE THANKS FOR NEW BLESSINGS AND 

FOR THE FAITH THAT ONE DOOR NEVER 

CLOSES BUT THAT A NEW DOOR OPENS TO 
GREATER GOOD. 


Each day offers opportunities to grow, to 
gain new faith and courage. 

Each new day stands as an open door before 
me. Especially is this true if I am meeting some 
change in the old familiar pattern of my life. 
When new demands are made of me it means that 
I am ready for the next higher step and that a new 
door is sure to open, that new’ opportunities and 
new blessings lie ahead for me. It means that I 
am growing; it means that I am ready to express 
more of my inner spiritual abilities. It means that 
I have outgrown old patterns, that I am ready to 
let go of the old and put on the new. It means that 
I am capable and ready for a fuller life. 

So today I prepare myself for new blessings by 
being peaceful in mind, open and receptive to 
guidance, and joyous in expectancy. I look for- 
ward, not back; and I take all the good I have 
learned with me as I go through the open door.

I BELIEVE IN THE LAW OF DIVINE JUSTICE 
« CONSTANTLY AT WORK IN MY LIFE. 


HEN I become conscious of the place I 
\ " | occupy in the loving heart of God | 
realize that I am under the law of di- 


vine justice, under the shadow of His protecting 
care. I cannot be unjustly treated by any person, 
neither can I lose my rightful inheritance. What 
is truly mine cannot be taken from me. 

If someone seems to be unjust in his dealings 
with me, I lovingly and compassionately meet the 
situation with composure and firmness. 

I take command of myself and my affairs, strong 
in the love of Jesus Christ, and standing firmly on 
the premise that I am under the law of divine 
justice. 

By keeping my thoughts, words, and actions in 
harmony with God's law of divine justice I am in- 
creasingly conscious of the place I occupy in the 
loving heart of God. 

I am able, therefore, to be just and fair in my 
dealings with others, even as I want them to be 
just and fair toward me. 


@ Jehovah is a God of justice; blessed are all they that 
wait for him.—Isa. 30:18.

TODAY I BLESS ALL MOTHERS EVERYWHERE. 


OTHER'S Day gives us opportunity to 
N / | pour out our special prayers and bless- 
ings on mothers everywhere. 

All of us are thankful in our own hearts for 
our mothers and for all that they have meant to 
us. And our thought can reach out to include all 
mothers everywhere in our love, appreciation, and 
blessing. 

We can think of young mothers struggling to 
adapt themselves to their new role and breathe a 
prayer, “God bless you.” We can think of mothers 
whose families are grown and scattered, who no 
longer feel needed and pray for them, “God 
strengthen you and make you know that you are 
needed.” We can think of mothers with sons in 
the service and pray for them, “God keep your 
courage high, God keep your dear ones safe.” As 
we bless our own mothers and all mothers every- 
where, our own awareness of our oneness with 
the entire human family is increased, and we feel 


a greater sense of the all-encompassing love of 
God.

I INVEST MY FAITH IN THE GOD-GIVEN, 
OVERCOMING, AND ACCOMPLISHING POWERS 
WITHIN ME. 


HAT WE have faith in determines so 
much about our lives that it is impor- 
tant for us to analyze our faith, to take 


time every once in a while to define what aspects 
of life we are investing our faith in. 

Is your faith invested in the affirmative aspects 
of life more than in the negative ones? Do you 
believe more in the overcoming power within you 
than in the power of disease? Do you believe more 
in the accomplishing power within you than in a 
lack of ability to do the things you want to do? 

Do you believe more in your own God-given 
power to control your responses and to organize 
your life on a rewarding basis than you do in the 
power of other persons and circumstances to con- 
trol your destiny? Out of the substance of your 
faith emerges the quality of your life, so now is 
the time to invest your faith in the God-given, 
overcoming, and accomplishing powers within 
you. 


@ Now faith is the substance of things hoped for.

DIVINE ORDER AND HARMONY ARE NOW 
ESTABLISHED IN MY MIND, BODY, AND 
AFFAIRS. 


Since God created the universe and He 

also fashioned me in His own image and 

likeness, I know that it is His will for my life and 
affairs to be orderly and harmonious. 

If I need greater peace and harmony with my 
family and friends, I not only pray for divine order 
in my life and affairs but I develop the art and 
skill of refusing to be quarrelsome and contentious 
with those about me. I carry my prayer into ac- 
tion by remaining peaceful, serene, and harmoni- 
ous. These qualities of mind and heart developed 
in my life assure me of greater harmony and order 
in my human relations. 

I can use today’s affirmation to establish divine 
order in every department of my life. As I affirm, 
“Divine order and harmony are now established 
in my mind, body, and affairs,” I shall be blessed 
with peace, health, harmony, and plenty.

And to him that ordereth his way aright 
Will I show the salvation of God.

GOD HAS PREPARED A RIGHT PLACE FOR ME, 
AND HE IS GUIDING ME TO THIS PLACE. 


HETHER I need a place to work or a 
\ \ / place to live, I can more quickly find 
my right place by affirming now that 


God has already prepared a place for me and that 
He is guiding me to this place. 

I know what my requirements are, and I turn 
these requirements over to the Spirit within me 
and know that my needs shall be perfectly met. 

I do my part in helping God guide me to my 
right place by being open and receptive to every 
good idea or leading that comes to me. Ideas will 
come as I pray for light and guidance, and then I 
must follow through by acting upon these ideas, 
by taking any indicated steps. 

I am not afraid to ask for perfect fulfillment 
of my needs, for I know that God’s answers are 
always perfect. 

I give thanks now in confidence and faith that 
God has prepared a right place for me and that 
He is guiding me to this place. 





















Guide me in thy truth, and teach me; 
For thou art the God of my salvation.

SOURCE OF INSPIRATION AND GUIDANCE. 


HEN Iam faced with some problem or 

\ \ / when I have some decision to make I 

can depend on the wisdom of the Christ 
within me to fill my mind and reveal the right and 
perfect answer to me. The wisdom of the Christ is 
accessible to me at all times through prayer and is 
a guiding light in the most minute details of every- 
day living. 

At any time I can contact the light and wisdom 
of the Christ within my own being. There is no 
need for me to be confused or hesitant when there 
is some decision for me to make or when some 
emergency arises, for I can turn within to the in- 
dwelling Christ and receive the guidance and in- 
spiration I need. 

When I trust in the wisdom of the Christ within 
me the way of right action is always made clear 
to me, and I go forward without doubt, fear, or 
uncertainty. 

In every situation and through every experience 
in my life I depend on the Christ wisdom within 
me to guide me aright.

JAMES DILLET FREEMAN 


A boy must grow to be a man 

Slow, inch by inch, thought span by span; 
His limbs must find a bolder length, 

His heart new tenderness and strength, 
His mind must stretch, his muscles fill, 
His sinews toughen, and his will. 

Life does not leave a boy content 

With being less than he was meant 

To be; the urge to grow is strong. 

He cannot stay a boy for long: 

There is in his bones an urge to grow, 
There is in his brain a need to know, 
There is a pattern in his heart, 

A dim perfection he must start 

To mount toward, willingly or loath; 

For the spirit in man was made for growth. 
By ways our wisdom could not plan 

The boy in us becomes the man.

I LET THE WILL OF THE FATHER WORK 


THROUGH ME, AND I AM ASSURED OF SUCCESS 
IN ANY UNDERTAKING. 


ow comforting is the knowledge that 

God’s presence is constantly with me! 

Wherever I go, whatever I do, God is 
with me. I acknowledge His presence here, now, 
and always. Daily I become increasingly aware of 
Him as the eternal source of my strength. 

Through a consciousness of God’s power with- 
in me I rise above all feelings of limitation. I con- 
fidently greet each new day, for I know that I have 
the God-given ability to meet life triumphantly, 
gloriously, and successfully. 

When I am in doubt or uncertain of the next 
step to take I turn to God’s power within me and 
quietly affirm, ‘““Thy will be done.” My being is 
instantly filled with a sense of perfect freedom 
and peace, and I am guided to right action. 

As I work with God, relinquishing my personal 
desires to His all-powerful will, I am assured of 
success in any undertaking. 


And the crooked shall become straight, 
And the rough ways smooth.

BY DRAWING UPON THE RICHNESS OF GOD'S 
SPIRIT WITHIN ME I KNOW HAPPINESS AND 
JOY IN LIVING. 


HERE is a truth that everyone must learn if 

he is to achieve the state of mind we think 

of as happiness. This truth is that emotidnal 

needs must be satisfied from God's Spirit within 

rather than by other persons and circumstances. 

All disappointment, all frustration are the result 

of thinking that life and other persons must give 
the happiness that only God’s Spirit can give. 

When a person learns that the successful life is 
lived from within the heart outward he is no 
longer made unhappy when others do not measure 
up to his expectations. Nor is he made unhappy 
when problems arise to be solved. He draws from 
within his innermost being the basic elements of 
happy living—the understanding, the courage, the 
forgiveness, the assurance he needs to sustain a 
buoyant spirit and to build a satisfying life. 

We come to know God’s Spirit within us 
through the practice of prayer, and a spiritual se- 
curity is built up that frees us from a dependency 
on persons or circumstances for happiness.

Sunday a 


I GIVE THANKS TO GOD FOR MY LIFE, 
HEALTH, AND STRENGTH AND I USE THEM 
IN SERVICE TO OTHERS. 


OES IT sometimes seem that you are lack- 
1B. ing in life, health, or strength? Are there 

times when you long to express more of 
God's radiant wholeness? If you do, then begin 
now, this moment, to give thanks to God for the 
life, health, and strength that you do have. No 
matter how lacking in life, health, and strength 
you may seem to be, praise the spirit of life that 
is within you, and use the energy and life within 
you in loving service to others. You will find that 
the little bit of health will become abundant and 
glowing, that the little strength will become great 
strength, that the small trickle of life will become 
a mighty river of divine energy. 

The reason is that praise and use increase our 
blessings. Even as Jesus blessed the few loaves 
and fishes and then began to share them, thus 
causing a miracle of abundance, so is every good 
we have multiplied a hundredfold as we sing 
praises for it and then use it in loving service and 
prayer for others. 


© Give, and it shall be given unto you.—LuKE 6:38.

THIS DAY I REMEMBER TO BE LOVINGLY 
INTERESTED IN OTHERS, IN WHAT THEY 
SAY AND WHAT THEY DO. 


LTHOUGH I realize that God speaks to me 

A from within my heart, I remember that 

He speaks to me through others, too. I 

remind myself that every person is a temple for 

God’s presence; and if I take the time to look for 
His Spirit within all persons, I shall find it. 

In the words and actions of all I shall find all 
manner of help, if I remember that the divine in 
every man is my teacher and my friend. 

Many times during the day I shall turn my at- 
tention away from myself and my concerns, and 
when others come before me I shall give them 
my most loving interest in the knowledge that 
the Christ I love is also within them. I shall look 
for and recognize the divinity in them, and they, 
in turn, will prove to be a blessing to me. 

This day I remember to be lovingly interested 
in others, in what they say and what they do, for 
this is one way in which God reveals His Truth 
to me—through the lives of others. 


© And the glory which thou hast given me I have 
given unto them.—JOHN 17:22.

There are no defined limitations to my re-

Life itself cannot make me fulfill my own po- 
tentialities. I myself must take the initiative. Other 
persons cannot live my life for me. I must decide 
my own way and assume responsibility for build-

for. 

I direct the dynamic power of my thought to- 
ward the changes I want made in myself and in 
my world. I do not dwell upon what seem to me to

GOD’S TRUTH IS EVER PRESENT IN MY HEART, 
AND I AM DIVINELY GUIDED IN ALL THAT 
I DO.—UNItTy ILLUMINATION THOUGHT. 


HE PRESENCE Of the ever-living God is with 

us always. He brings us comfort, peace, 

joy, assurance, and guidance that are un- 

failing. His Spirit, the Spirit of truth, in- 

dwells in our hearts, making known to us all 
things that are the Father’s good will for us. 

Only good exists for us; only good is our divine 
heritage; only good abides in our lives. The good 
that we seek is seeking us, and we are given the 
power of choice by which we shall lay hold of 
it and bring it forth into manifestation in our lives. 
To choose wisely the right way to go, the right 
thing to do requires spiritual discernment, un- 
flagging courage, and unfailing persistence in 
acknowledging the presence of God in all and over 
all. 

This day we are shown the right ‘thing to do, 
the right thing to say, the right way to go. God's 
Truth abiding in us gives us perfect discernment, 
and absolute certainty that all is well.

you into all the truth —JOHN 16:13.

GOD'S BOUNTY, LIKE A LIVING STREAM, IS 

FLOODING MY AFFAIRS WITH HIS SUBSTANCE, 

AND I REJOICE IN THE FULLNESS OF MY 
GOOD.—UNItTy PROsPERITY THOUGHT. 


$ LIVING streams of water cause the dry 

A ground to bring forth abundantly, so God's 

bounty floods our affairs with His sub- 

stance. His substance transforms the desert of 

lack in our minds into the rich and fertile field of 
plenty from which we garner abundant harvest. 

God's substance is the pure divine essence of His 
being, invisible yet all-pervading and all-sufficing. 
It is ceaselessly active, flowing continuously from 
the fountainhead into our world, into our indi- 
vidual lives and affairs. 

We lay hold of this substance and cause it to 
become manifest for us by means of ideas that 
God communicates to us. Ideas of plenty, ideas of 
prosperity, ideas of well-being, ideas of continuous 
spiritual growth are ours for the claiming. Now, 
this moment, God is flooding our minds with new 
ideas.

shalt be . . . like a spring of water, whose waters fail 
not.—ISA. 58:11.

GOD’S LIFE, A RIVER OF HEALING, FLOWS 

THROUGH ME, AND I REALIZE THAT I AM RE- 

NEWED, REFRESHED, AND RESTORED.—UNItTy 
HEALING THOUGHT. 


O You thirst for the waters of healing life 
1D) that flow unceasingly from the fount of 

all life, the Father eternal? Thirst no 
longer; this river of healing is now flowing 
through you; take, drink, be renewed, refreshed, 
restored, made whole in every part. 

As a limpid stream flows steadily from its 
source in a lake whose boundaries the eye can- 
not discern, so the crystal-clear river of God's 
healing life flows unendingly from the infinite 
divine source. It flows ever toward you, never 
away from you. It does not dry up or recede as you 
take from it. God’s healing life is limitless, all- 
powerful, all-sustaining. 

The river of healing brings you rest, renewal, 
refreshment, and restores you to the perfect life 
that is your heritage as a child of God. It cleanses 
you, quickens you, makes you whole and well.

How comforting it is to know that I can place my

As I develop my spiritual faculties, I attain

nothing can stand between me and my good except 
my own negative beliefs, so I now let go of nega-

God's Spirit works in me, transforming and

I AM ILLUMINED BY GOD'S LOVE, WHICH 
SHINES IN ME AND THROUGH ME. 


op Is all light, all wisdom, all power, and 

[; all inspiration. All life comes from God; 

and because we are alive with the life of 

God, we are moving and growing ceaselessly to- 
ward fulfillment, toward perfection. 

I see in part and know in part, but I am con- 
fident that God’s wisdom ever guides my path. 

I am part of God's perfect plan; His presence 
walks with me. I rejoice in His light; I rejoice 
that He is ever with me. 

God’s light radiates from me to bless and in- 
spire others. He supplies me abundantly. In any 
need I have only to ask of Him, and He will hear 
me. I am filled to overflowing with joy and thank- 
fulness because of God's loving-kindness. 

I praise God's name and strive to keep His 
light shining brightly through me. I pray for my- 
self and all men, so that we may know the joy, 
that comes from living with hearts, minds, and 
spirits attuned to God.

That shineth more and more unto the perfect day.

KNOW THAT NOTHING CAN KEEP MY GOOD 
FROM ME. 





















that patience is the proof of my trust in Him. 

When I no longer fear that anything or any- 
one can keep my good from me I am free from 
tension or anxiety. 

The only obstacles to my good are doubt, fear, 
and other negative emotions, but the power to 
overcome these obstacles lies within me. My part 
is to open my mind and heart to God and to let 
go willingly of any thought or feeling that causes 
me to doubt the outworking of His good in my 
life and affairs. 

I am patient with myself and with others as I 
work with God to bring forth my good, for I know 
that I can trust my desires to God, that He is bless- 
ing me in the way that brings about my highest 
good and greatest happiness. 

God is my highest good. His Spirit in me is my 
assurance of divine help; His Spirit in me is my

I AM NOT ALONE; GOD IS ALWAYS WITH ME, 
PROTECTING, GUIDING, AND SUSTAINING ME. 


s I enter into new experiences, face un- 

A known conditions, or seek my way in 

strange places, I reassure myself with 

this prayer: “I am not alone; God is always with 
me, protecting, guiding, and sustaining me.” 

As I realize God’s presence within me, I let go 
of fear, for I know that He protects me from all 
harm. I know that I can find my way in strange 
places as well as my right way through life, for I 
put my trust in His guidance. I can find courage 
to meet challenging conditions; I can find the 
strength and the ability to do all that is required 
of me. 

I am not alone. The consciousness of His abid- 
ing love comforts and cheers me. As I acknowl- 
edge His love and seek to share its comfort and 
strength with others, I find joy and satisfaction 
in every department of my life. 

I am not alone. No matter where I am or what 
I do, no matter how things appear, I know that

THE SPIRIT OF TRUTH IN ME MAKES ME WISE 
AND LOVING IN EVERY SITUATION. 


ISDOM and love should go hand in hand, 

\ \ / but sometimes we let our good nature 

overbalance our wisdom and find our- 
selves in complicated situations. 

With good intentions we try to help another 
person and sometimes find ourselves in a position 
where we begin to feel that we are being taken 
advantage of. On the other hand, the person 
whom we think we are helping is really being 
weakened rather than encouraged, because we are 
assuming too much responsibility for his happi- 
ness and well-being. 

As we pray for light and wisdom, we are shown 
how to meet these situations and how to avoid any 
reoccurrences of them. We want, of course, to be 
loving, tolerant, helpful, understanding toward 
everyone at all times. When we look to and rely 
upon the Spirit of truth in us we shall be pro- 
tected from unwise judgments, and saved from 
situations that do not contribute to the peace of 
mind and progress of ourselves and others. 


@ Be ye therefore wise as serpents, and harmless as 
doves.—MaATT. 10:16.

shall go before thee; the glory of the Lorp shall 
be thy rereward. Then shalt thou call, and the 
LorD shall answer; thou shalt cry, and he shall 
say, Here I am.” 

If you have been praying for healing without 
results, pray, instead, for light. Oftentimes heal- 
ing follows inspiration. Open your mind to divine 
inspiration. Let it express itself through you. This 
is one way of laying hold of more of the living life 
of God, this is one way of finding release from ten- 
sion, from physical inharmony. 

Think of the light of Truth breaking forth as 
the morning in your consciousness. Think of light 
penetrating every part of your mind and soul, 
lifting you up, setting you free. With the great 
inflooding of light into your being will come heal- 
ing power, too, and your “healing shall spring 
forth speedily.” 

There is light and healing for you. Believe this!

MY ROLE IN THE LIVES OF OTHERS IS TO GIVE 
THE SPIRITUAL SUPPORT OF UNDERSTAND. 
ING AND COMPASSION. 


é i O LIVE harmoniously and helpfully with an- 
other person, we must accept this person 
in terms of his particular personality and 
temperament. We must not condemn him for fail- 
ing to respond in accordance with the ideals that 
we hold in mind. No one is so well rounded in 
character and personality development that he 
can act with flawless judgment under all circum- 
stances or face every situation with exactly the 
right degree of poise and responsibility. 

We are all in the process of development; and 
if we are to lend spiritual support to the lives of 
others, we must not expect ideal responses, ideal 
behavior. We must try to contribute the under- 
standing and compassion that assures another 
that he is appreciated and respected as a growing 
and inherently worthy child of God, no matter 
how trying his behavior may seem to us at times. 

If this attitude seems difficult to take, we must 
work with ourselves in prayer.

EMORIAL Day is an appointed time for 
| \ / | remembering those who gave their lives 

in the service of their country, and it 
has become a day when people remember and 
honor all dear ones who have passed on. 

Memorial Day should not be a day of sadness 
but a day of rededication, a day of new faith, a 
day of new spiritual vision. God’s words to Moses 
stand as the greatest memorial of all: “I AM THAT 
1AM... this is my name for ever, and this is my 
memorial unto all generations.” 

As you think of those you love today, as you 
pray for others who need strength and help today, 
know that there is no separation in God, that His 
love is eternal, unchanging, forever infolding His 
children. 

Know that in spite of human experiences He 
speaks from the heart of all saying: “I AM. I 
have always been, I shall always be. ‘I am the 
Alpha and the Omega . . . who is and who was 
and who is to come, the Almighty.’ ”

I LOOK TO GOD'S LOVING SPIRIT FOR UPLIFT- 
MENT AND RENEWAL, 


FTENTIMES we need strength and capabili- 
() ties greater than our own. We need the 

gentle ministrations of a heart that un- 
derstands what we feel. We need the motivation 
of a power that responds the moment we turn to 
it. We need a love that can make our hearts sing 
again. 

Where can we turn to get so much when we feel 
incapable even of making our need known? There 
is One abiding forever in our hearts that responds 
as quickly and as surely to these needs as the 
mercury in the thermometer responds to the slight- 
est fluctuation in temperature. There need be no 
effort of asking or of accepting. There need be 
only the silent turning of the heart toward its in- 
most center, to the presence of God. So simple 
and effortless an act brings peace and renewal. 
God's Spirit increases our greatness, so that we 
can meet the hurdles of our lives with courage and 
with spiritual gain. 























Increase thou my greainess, 
And turn again and comfort me.

in pamphlet form. 

As you may know, Good Business magazine is

women. These people—while Ss 
they may not be professional writers—are skilled 
in the art of living, and they have something to 
offer which is nowhere else available. 

“What Christianity Means to Free Enterprise” is 
such an article. Its author, Gordon Buck, is a busy

write down his ideas about Christianity in modern

A DIFFERENT VIEWPOINT 


There is a certain painting in the Louvre, the great 
art museum in Paris, which to a person standing in front 
of it appears to be only a conglomeration of colors mixed 
together without rhyme or reason. But if you move a 
few paces backward and to the right, you suddenly see 
a beautiful landscape with grazing sheep and in the 
foreground a shepherd boy playing his pipes. It seems 
to be a different picture altogether. 

Many passages in the Bible are like that painting. They 
may seem strange and incomprehensible; yet when they 
are examined from the metaphysical viewpoint, their 
meaning stands out clear and complete. It is the purpose 
of the Unity Sunday-School Leaflet to bring to you—and 
to your students if you are the teacher of a Sunday-school 
class—this different way of looking at the Scriptures. 
You will find it a wonderful aid in interpreting so-called 
“different passages.”

A FATHER’S DAY GIFT 


Good Business magazine is the perfect gift for Father's 
Day. Every word of its contents is up-to-date and im- 
mediately applicable to modern day problems. For in- 
stance, Good Business has recently begun a new depart- 
ment that answers questions from readers about how 
they can make their relations with others more harmo- 
nious. This department is aptly named ‘Human Rela- 
tions” and it is proving extremely useful to Good Busi- 
ness readers. 

For instance, here is a letter from an executive in 
Indiana: “I have just run across the new department 
entitled ‘Human Relations.’ I have read it, and while 
I am writing this our general manager, who is one of the 
best labor relations men I know, has been reading it. He 
remarked, ‘I think that is just right.’ I am trying to put 
your suggestions to use in the case of several persons 
with whom I have had difficult problems. This 
new department is very worth while, and I 
certainly hope you will continue it.” 

Good Business also contains articles by well- 
known Truth writers, memorable quotations, 
several poems, and a bit of non- 
sense for lighter moments. The 
magazine makes a Father's Day 
gift that will really be appre- 
ciated, and it costs only $1 for 
a year’s subscription.

Unity Afnnounces 
THE 1953 DEMONSTRATION PROGRAM 


Each summer, Unity students seek to put Truth prin- 
ciples into practice in their lives, and thereby to demon- 
strate some actual good that they desire. Various specific 
goals have been chosen for Summer Demonstration Pro- 
grams in the past such as health, prosperity, and self- 
improvement. This year we will try something different. 
We will try to demonstrate happiness—in our own hearts 
and in every department of our lives. 

The Declaration of Independence guarantees to each 

citizen of the United States the right to the _ of 
happiness; but the Bible guarantees us the fulfillment 
of every desire of our heart. ‘Prove me now herewith, 
saith Jehovah of hosts, if I will not open you the win- 
dows of heaven, and pour you out a blessing, that there 
P shall not be room enough to receive it.” 
. A new book has been prepared especially to help you 
in demonstrating happiness. Appropriately titled Prove 
Me Now, it was written by one of Unity’s best-loved 
; authors, Gardner Hunting. You will find his book un- 
; usually helpful because he has proved everything he says 
in his own career as a writer and businessman. 

There are no fixed time limits on Unity’s Summer 
Demonstration Program, but the sooner you begin the 
sooner you can start to benefit. Send for your copy of 
Prove Me Now today. It is priced at only $1, and with 
it you will receive free of charge a guide booklet called 
“Four Steps to Happiness.”

A Tree in Spring 
ELEANOR HALBROOK ZIMMERMAN 


A tree in spring has loveliness 
For every passer-by— 

The green of leaf, the bloom of flower, 
The cheerful blue of sky; 


It has a language of its own 
That all may understand; 

Who reads it well walks not alone, 
For God shall take his hand; 


And he shall go but a little way, 
A bright May morning mile, 

To find in all things brave and gay 
The blessing of God’s smile.
