Resolution for 2019

Written by on January 27, 2019

In the Christian tradition of the Unity School,  publishers of the famous DAILY WORD magazine, we learn about the twelve powers of man:  faith, strength, wisdom, love, power, imagination, understanding, will, order, zeal, release, life.   In fact, each of the twelve days after Christmas which lead up to Epiphany is devoted to studying one of these powers.  I recently completed this brief period of study, and the following thoughts popped into my head over the last couple of weeks.

As always, I am essentially talking to myself, trying to guide my spirit toward a more peaceful and loving year.  If these thoughts resonate with you, then we are both blessed even more.  Namaste.


I understand that even brief moments of frustration and anger over situations, things, and people are poison to my consciousness, to my spirit.  I exhale and release these thoughts.  I let go of any thought, feeling, or memory that no longer serves my unfolding good.  Through the power of my imagination and the power of my faith, I create a positive life, free of judgment and filled with joy and peace and satisfaction. 

I look around and see order in my world.  I look at the plants, the animals, the oceans, the sky, the earth itself and the solar system, and I see that there is a loving pattern to it all. Everything happens when it is supposed to happen.  I look at my body, at my heart and lungs, at my brain and bones and muscles and nerves and I see order.  I can’t control everything and I don’t need to try to control even the small stuff.  I just need to acknowledge the order that already exists and then I relax.  I let go and let god. There is no need to fret over any one week or day or moment.  I live in the NOW, knowing divine order prevails in all things. 

 In this moment of freedom, I feel the power of divine love welling up in me.   I grasp the thought that I am strong.   And I consciously use my will to choose each day to act with love and kindness, and not be buffeted by the winds of anger, disappointment, and frustration. With this new perspective, I release my need to control, and I know that divine order is at work in my life.

With great enthusiasm, I greet each day, just like a child on Christmas morn, in anticipation of wonderful gifts.     I live with zeal for life.

  1. Emilie Cady writes in Lessons in Truth: “I am a manifestation of God, and every moment divine life, love, wisdom, power flow into and through me.”

I ask myself each morning: “What good thing is ready to happen in my life right now?”
