Spiritual mind treatment, or affirmative prayer is something we do to ourselves. The only direction we give to this treatment, this prayer, this affirmation of acceptance, is that we identify it with the person we are working for or the condition we wish to help. This is neither willing, concentrating, coercing, nor compelling anything or anyone. It is, rather, a quiet inward acceptance, an affirmation of our conviction, based on the fact that there is a spiritual Perfection at the center of all things in the universe. That there is a fundamental Good governing all things.
There is One Life, that Life is God, that Life is our life now. Consciously we identify ourselves with It. We definitely affirm the One Presence and the One Power operating in, around, and through us. Anything that denies the supremacy of Good is itself but a mistake in judgment.
As we come to open up our thought to a greater acknowledgment and acceptance of the Divinity that resides within us, we find ourselves on the pathway to achieving the purpose for which we were created. That purpose is to express the nature of the Divine, the Source of our being.
Today I accept my own affirmations. There is nothing in me that can contradict them. I have a deep inward sense, feeling, conviction, and complete faith that there is a Power of Good governing everything. That Power of Good is governing completely, with absolute certainty, without deviation, without exception. There is nothing to oppose It, to change It, to limit It or circumscribe Its action. I abandon myself to this faith. I live in its atmosphere. I accept its conclusion. I know that I am a Divine being on the pathway of an endless self-expression and that the eternal God is my host, now and forevermore.
And So It Is
