You are the center of consciousness through which the Power of God flows. When you turn within and touch the realm of Spirit, your outer mind becomes a channel for this Power. — John Randolph Price

Love is the central flame of the universe, nay, the very fire itself. It is written that God is Love, and that we are Spirits expressed likeness, the image of the Eternal Being. — The Science of Mind


Stoking the Fire

My job is to stoke the fire of God within me, to let my light shine, to heal, restore, and renew myself daily. It’s my job to remember to live always in the greater Truth. I’m the only one who can purify my thinking. When I am down or wrapped up in mistaken beliefs, I have to call upon Infinite Intelligence to assist me in correcting my thinking. When I’m upset, it’s because I’ve forgotten that I live in the presence of Spirit. I have separated myself and stepped away from my good.

When I feel separate, I pick up Ernest Holmes’ book, This Thing Called You. I read it in the first person, and I can feel my power returning as I claim my personal good. Reading Ernest Holmes helps me stoke the fire of God that is eternally mine, and I am reminded that I can never be separate from my Source. I can feel the embers of God’s love and wisdom alive within me as I read words of Truth.

My personal power comes from my deep connection to God. I will read sacred books until I remember and return to the Presence of Spirit within me. I will allow these words of wisdom to strengthen me. The fire of God’s love is alive within me always and forever.
