There is One Power and Presence in the Universe. I am knowing and realizing that It expresses in, as, and through me. It is what I am! As I listen to the voice of wisdom within, I recognize the truth within myself: I am an unfolding action of love. I shine with beauty and light as God's expression of being, and rejoice in the wonder of my life right now. Releasing the past, letting go of any burdens and fears, I allow the Divine to move through me. As I do so, I experience a new awakening to the truth of the One Presence within me! Today I celebrate myself in this new expression of life. Every day is a day to rejoice, for there is nothing but God, nothing but good! This is the truth, and so it is!
