The forward look is the Godward look. My heaven will never be unless I make it out of the materials of my own thinking. Today I set my sights high on God who fashioned me in Its image and after Its likeness. I stand at the door of the abundant life and I knock. 

All that I seek opens to me and beckons to life's fullness. I enter into my Divine heritage and walk with the great and the true. My pathway is filled with ease, for I am thinking to take me to my goal. All of Mind urges me on, and all power is my strength to move. Idea after idea comes to my consciousness in right sequence at exactly the right moment. I am inspired to right action in every detail. I walk forward with ease.

There are no obstructions in my pathway of mind. The mistakes of yesterday are behind, and the future beckons with promise. God is where I am, and God will always be with me. God's hand will never loose mine, nor will Its love let me go. God's listening Mind tells me good can be before me. The way is clear, and I never let my doubts create detours. I handle each doubt as it appears and declare it to be nothing. The way is straight, I walk in peace to my selected good. I am pushed from behind by the Spirit, even as I am led forward by true guidance. I walk in faith.

My decision to accept my greater freedom is a mighty power within me. It leads me, directs me and comforts me when doubts assail. I am undaunted by the problems I seem to face. Ahead of me is the royal road to good living based on Spirit and motivated by love. This is the day of progress; this is the day of demonstration. I walk in the dream of accomplishment, and my dream becomes a fact.

Today I am energized by the vitality of the Living Spirit.  All the power that there is, all the energy and vitality that there is, is mine.  I am filled with an enthusiasm for living, a joyous expectation of the more that is to be, and a gratitude for what has been and now is.

Every weight or burden of thought or feeling falls away from me as I am now lifted up into the atmosphere of that vitality which knows only the joy of its own being.  I now declare that God is my strength.

by Ernest Holmes

I now affirm that my body is a body of right ideas.  It now is the body of God.  Its every action and function is harmonious.  Whatever does not belong is eliminated. What needs to be renewed is renewed.  All the energy action, power and vitality there is in the universe is flowing through this divine creation now.

My word of acceptance does actually establish in my body the action and harmony, which already exist.  There is one life – perfect, harmonious, whole, complete. That life is my life now – not tomorrow, but today.

I have decided to be happy.  I have a right to be happy.  If other people can be happy, then I can be happy.  I have the same mind and emotions that they do.  I now demand that my subconscious use all of its intelligence to make me happy.
