when it became clear.
aspects: the "spirit self" and the "mental self." The "spirit self" is our spirit-being whom we are always journeying towards and hoping to realize in all its fullness. The "mental self" is the mind-structure through which we deal with the physical and material world. When we pray out of the bottom of our hearts, without realizing it, there is a POWERFUL ENERGY FORMATION THAT CALLS FORWARD THE SPIRIT-SELF propelled by the circumstances of our "mental self." It is the spirit-self that touches the circles of life. In this selection, we will pray together and feel the formation of energy and touch the circles of life.
Today we affirm that physical well-being is a state of wholeness that reflects what we really and truly are in the Spirit. When the mind is clear, it helps us interact with the external world, but it does not see the perfection that we are in the Spirit. Right now, we rise to this level of knowing without apprehension, without doubt! We see what's happening now. With the eyes of Spirit, we see healed bodies and renewed minds, but we do not strive to take them or grab them as they float in the space of God. We simply rest in deep assurance that what we now feel, WHAT WE SEE, right now, is WHAT WE ARE! And so it is...Amen!
Even though we may have walked difficult paths in relationships, we believe, today, we have not walked alone. A divine compass has directed us to this solemn hour where we find these words to say. Right at this moment, our minds are stopped in their reactivity to disappointment in relationships. We declare that the self disappointed was a reactive self that was not engaged with the life of Spirit. Today, we stand on the threshold of a new life. We leave behind an old, reactive self that was
easily manipulated by fear. We come up higher; we come into a newness that the physical eyes cannot see nor can the ears hear. We rejoice in this that is now unfolding. We affirm that the newness that is now unflolding as us is unfolding as the relationships we have and will form. Healing is not a doctor on call; it is PRESENT, it is unfolding within our newness. We are touching the circle of HEALTHY, WARM and FULFILLING relationships and declare that healthy relationships are now the
reality of our lives. In this powerful energy formation of pure life, we stand now at the edge of our true self, and TOUCH, TOUCH, TOUCH, TOUCH this circle of health that is a promise fulfilled. And so it is...Amen!
Peace and joy are ours. They have always been ours. We open our hearts to realize the peace and joy that are the very nature of our true self. We affirm that nothing stands in the way of this reality. We affirm that nothing can, in truth, stand in the way of this reality. We open ourselves and become receptive to it. We see the circles now in full view. We do not hestitate. We touch them and start our journey into PEACE and JOY as reality and not just ideas. We know that what we
have, right at this moment, comes alive in us, and will affect those around us. For that, we are thankful. We are thankful now that PEACE and JOY flow out of us and are becoming a transforming dialogue with all those who cross our paths. With the eyes of Spirit, we see all this now, right now! And so it is...Amen!
Right now, we delcare that the old mind-set that we should live in lack is now fading. We are thankful for the gifts and provisions that are all around us. Our finger now sits upon the circle of provision. We affirm, right now, that we have all that
we need. We are in want of nothing because we are no longer living in the narrow corridors of our minds, but in a wide open space of life where we are blessed with a downpour of provisions and we share with those around us. We are thankful for Creation and all that we are given. And so it is...Amen!
PRAYER 5: TOUCHING THE CIRCLE OF SUCCESS
From the outset, we declare that we know success not to be a narrow vision rooted in selfishness and self-interest that forgets the SOURCE OF LIFE. We know success to be this: going as far as our inner gifts would take us, and with our substance, to enjoy life, bless those around us, and those in need. We are thankful for our skills and abilities. We are thankful for the blessing of success as we we use those skills and abilities. We are thankful for our growth and nurturing that is happening right now, in the Spirit. We feel the emergence, today, of what is about to happen before our very eyes. We do not grab it; we do
not snatch it; we receive it with humility; we share it. We simply let it be in our lives according to DIVINE WILL. And so it is...Amen!
