EVER-PRESENT OPPORTUNITY

There are many theories regarding opportunity, some of which are conflicting: that it comes and goes, that it does not present itself to all, that it can be lost, and that it is sometimes an avenue of good and sometimes of evil. Acceptance of or submission to such beliefs leads to sorrow, suffering, and lack.

In the first chapter of Genesis we learn that God created the universe and that this creation is completely good. We learn, too, that man is the image and likeness of God, omnipresent good. Thus it follows that man continuously manifests intelligence, wisdom, beauty, perfection, joy, abundance, and dominion. All the qualities of God are expressed in His universe and have never been adulterated, lost, or destroyed. Therefore, in reality, there is and can be no lost opportunity, no lack of opportunity, and no opportunity for evil. The opportunity to do and receive good is ever present, is coexistent with God, the only creator.
