Hi – I’m reading “Christian Healing” by Charles Fillmore and wanted to share this quote with you.
“God (To be used in connection with Lesson Two) 1. I am the son of God, and the Spirit of the Most High dwells in me. 2. I am the only begotten son, dwelling in the bosom of the Father. 3. I am the lord of my mind, and the ruler of all its thought people. 4. I am the Christ of God. 5. Through Christ I have dominion over my every thought and word. 6. I am the beloved son in whom the Father is well pleased. 7. Of a truth I am the son of God. 8. All that the Father has is mine. 9. He that hath seen me hath seen the Father. 10. I and my Father are one. 11. My highest ideal is a perfect man. 12. My next highest ideal is that I am that perfect man. 13. I am the image and likeness of God, in whom is my perfection. 14. It is written in the law of the Lord, “Ye are gods, and . . . sons of the Most High.” 15. These are written, that ye may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God; and that believing ye may have life in his name.”
Christian Healing by Charles Fillmore is a classic in Unity literature. This passage is a series of affirmations that help you understand and claim your Oneness and the Christ within.
In Unity, we know that our thoughts are things. As we think, we become. Whatever our mind dwells on, that is what we get. By rereading these affirmations, you turn your thoughts toward your connection to the God-mind.
God is spirit. There is nowhere this spirit is not. It contains divine ideas. Those divine ideas are what John 1:1 says is the Word or Logos. The expression of those ides is everything in the subjective realm.
We know that we are made in the image and likeness of God, therefore we to contain those divine ideas. We bring them into manifestation through our thoughts. They are the perfect idea of what things are.
Those perfections get corrupted by our ego. That’s why we must continually strive to eliminate our egos and express our Inner Christ.
As affirmation 5 is so important. To repeat it, “Through Christ, I have dominion over my every thought and word.” We have a choice. We, though our free will we must exercise our choice to follow the will of God.
The will of God is for us to be perfect health, perfect vitality, and enjoying sufficient prosperity to live comfortable, and want for nothing.
We are told that God supplies the lilies of the field and the birds in the sky with all they need, so to will God, through those Divine Ideas keep us as we were intended to be. The perfect outpicturing of Divine Mind.
Genesis tells us we have dominion over all earth. What we do with that dominion is up to us. We can wallow in misery, or bask in the light of Divine Substance.
We can destroy this earth with greed, or care for it and all creation on in. That is up to our thoughts and actions.
God is love. If we radiate that love through our thoughts, we can instill peace on earth. “The peace that was meant to be.”
