The light of divine Love dissolves the dense fog
      of mesmerizing past mistakes.
 the blazing flow from Love  
      could never be delayed or frozen.

Rather it is a
dynamic love,
God’s goodness and love expressed through being and action.
      This fact holds me, takes me,
                guides, uplifts, exalts, and secures me!
My ego, the “I” or “me,” naturally yields
      to God’s assurance,
“I AM that I AM.”*

I’m uplifted and free. Love clarifies and 
enables me to see
       Love’s harmonious universe — reality!

I can trust
that divine Mind designs the universe
        and my place in the infinite, which
                is not of my creating, nor of anyone else’s!
My life is defined by Love’s intelligence and light
               like all the colors that reflect
the beauty of Soul —
Love’s complete and infinite expression
        of eternal good.

Yes, I see
        God’s love for me, and for you,
a shining, healing love,
        here and now, is
even more brilliant than sunlight
filling a dark room.  

 —

*Ex. 3:14.
