When you have a nightmare, it seems so real to you. Even after you wake up, it takes a moment for your heartbeat and breathing to settle down. It was a delusion of your senses that seemed quite real. Anything that we would call evil is really the same…
Because evil isn’t an entity, but simply the absence of good. Just as darkness cannot appear when there is light, evil cannot take hold when you are in love and light. Darkness is not a thing. It is simply the absence of the real thing, which is light.
The things you find undesirable pass away if you refuse to recognize them as reality by thought, word, or deed. Nothing is real except the eternal; that is the way of your creator.
We talk about people being born with a “gift” as though this is something passed along from his or her parents, or the results of a certain environment. But we all have a gift and it comes from the true power in the universe: Infinite Intelligence.
And this Infinite Intelligence does not favor one over the other…
It doesn’t say, “Mary is good, she gets a Ferrari, Bobby has been bad, he’ll have to settle for the Toyota.” Infinite Intelligence does not withhold from you, any more than it would give someone a disease and someone else vibrant health.
When you really understand the power of this gift, nothing in the man-made world can stand against its power. You are small or great according to the measure you receive it consciously. The power you receive is in direct relation to your faithfulness in recognizing the source and affirming its manifestation.
You up for that? If so, here’s your affirmation for today:
Infinite Intelligence is active in me now, manifested and made visible, in my body and all my affairs.
