Everything in the universe is a unique individualization or expression of the One Thing that is the Cause of all things. No two blades of grass are alike, no two grains of sand, no two thumbprints; no two of anything are alike and nothing ever exactly reproduces any other thing. This means that the one ultimate Cause is pressing against every individualization, flowing through it or him or her and that every event in the finite has an infinite possibility behind it.

We have to link all of this with our everyday actions because we cannot live by theories alone. They must be brought down to earth and applied to our daily life, but it is wonderful to realize that we do not have to imitate; we do not have to compete. All we have to do is to be ourselves and realize that the One Self, the Universal Being, expressing Itself in us in a unique way, is absolute and available. This is the secret that every person has with Life and with God: that God shall be to each one of us what we are to God. Today I practice being myself. I think simply and directly from the center of my own being, which is one with the living Spirit. I realize that all the Good there is, all the Presence there is, all the Power there is, is immediately available and responsive to my acceptance.

I enter into the faith of believing, the joy of knowing, and the act of living that proclaim the One Presence and Power in all things. This Presence — warm, personal, and colorful — responds to me. It is within, around, and through me, and It embraces all things. Today I accept my partnership with the Infinite.

And So It Is
