I am as God created me.

1. 1We will repeat today’s idea from time to time. 2For this one thought would be enough to save you and the world, if you believed that it is true. 3Its truth would mean that you have made no changes in yourself that have reality, nor changed the universe so that what God created was replaced by fear and evil, misery and death. 4If you remain as God created you fear has no meaning, evil is not real, and misery and death do not exist.

2. 1Today’s idea is therefore all you need to let complete correction heal your mind, and give you perfect vision that will heal all the mistakes that any mind has made at any time or place. 2It is enough to heal the past and make the future free. 3It is enough to let the present be accepted as it is. 4It is enough to let time be the means for all the world to learn escape from time, and every change that time appears to bring in passing by.

3. 1If you remain as God created you, appearances cannot replace the truth, health cannot turn to sickness, nor can death be substi­tute for life, or fear for love. 2All this has not occurred, if you remain as God created you. 3You need no thought but just this one, to let redemption come to light the world and free it from the past.

4. 1In this one thought is all the past undone; the present saved to quietly extend into a timeless future. 2If you are as God created you, then there has been no separation of your mind from His, no split between your mind and other minds, and only unity within your own.

5. 1The healing power of today’s idea is limitless. 2It is the birthplace of all miracles, the great restorer of the truth to the awareness of the world. 3Practice today’s idea with gratitude. 4This is the truth that comes to set you free. 5This is the truth that God has promised you. 6This is the Word in which all sorrow ends.

6. 1For your five-minute practice periods, begin with this quotation from the text:

2I am as God created me. 3His Son can suffer nothing.
4And I am His Son.

7. 1Then, with this statement firmly in your mind, try to discover in your mind the Self Who is the holy Son of God Himself.

8. 1Seek Him within you Who is Christ in you, the Son of God and brother to the world; the Savior Who has been forever saved, with power to save whoever touches Him, however lightly, ask­ing for the Word that tells him he is brother unto Him.

9. 1You are as God created you. 2Today honor your Self. 3Let graven images you made to be the Son of God instead of what he is be worshipped not today. 4Deep in your mind the holy Christ in you is waiting your acknowledgment as you. 5And you are lost and do not know yourself while He is unacknowledged and unknown.

10. 1Seek Him today, and find Him. 2He will be your Savior from all idols you have made. 3For when you find Him, you will under­stand how worthless are your idols, and how false the images which you believed were you. 4Today we make a great advance to truth by letting idols go, and opening our hands and hearts and minds to God today.

11. 1We will remember Him throughout the day with thankful hearts and loving thoughts for all who meet with us today. 2For it is thus that we remember Him. 3And we will say, that we may be reminded of His Son, our holy Self, the Christ in each of us:

4I am as God created me.

5Let us declare this truth as often as we can. 6This is the Word of God that sets you free. 7This is the key that opens up the gate of Heaven, and that lets you enter in the peace of God and His eternity.
