Most of us have no trouble recognizing the Presence of God expressing in the beauty and order of the world in which we live. We may often feel the Power of God at work in our own lives as well, bringing us rewards beyond anything we might have earned. These represent spiritual awareness of the first order. They are important, but they are not enough.
If we were simply expressions of God, like the animals, plants, fish – all of the animate and inanimate manifestations of divine energy in the world around us – then our simple awareness of God would be enough. But we are more. We are created in the very image and likeness of God. That means that we are Spirit, as God is Spirit. And it means that we are meant to create, as God creates.
We are not simply to recognize God’s Power, but to express it. Our role is to continue the creative process, to bring more of God into manifestation. It is important, then, for us to understand how that creative process works through us, so that we can cooperate with it instead of resisting it out of ignorance or fear.
Each orderly statement of spiritual truth that we affirm puts us more completely in touch with the Power of God within us, in a way that allows us to perform our own creative role more effectively. We establish these spiritual affirmations clearly in consciousness, remembering always that consciousness is not just a mental activity, but a powerful interaction of head and heart.
Let us affirm today that we are beginning to realize a wonderful energy within us. We keep our thoughts and words attuned to it, and we become channels through which it expresses in the world around us.
