When There is Dread of the Future

I am free from the haunting shadows of the past. They have no power to project themselves into my future and appall me.

There is in me no tension of unpleasant anticipation, no relaxation of fear.

I have perfect confidence in the Supreme Justice and I know that no evil can befall me. Whatever enters into my experience, all is good.

Whatever confronts me in the way by which I ascend, it is but a part of myself, to be left behind and known no more if it cannot climb with me.

I am thankful that my own sense-nature is thus laid bare to me.

I rejoice and give thanks.

With heart, might, mind, and strength, I aspire to know thee, O! my God! I yield up all unlikeness to thyself. Mold me as thou wilt, so that I be like thee!

There are no more shadows. I see the light. I am bathed in the divine effulgence.

There is no past, there is no future, all is one.

I am that I am.

All that has been existence dissolves and melts away.

I breathe in the infinite. I am come to my own. I breathe out Love upon every human soul.

Not one would I injure. I gather them all into this ocean of Love.

I hold them in this eternal presence, one with thee O! God!

Gone is all chance, all happening. Perfect love casteth out fear.

The creatures in me are dumb. Thou hast stopped their mouths.

Thankfully I go forward in Thy likeness, doing Thy will, that Thou mayest be glorified in me. It is done.
