Day 20 Thursday Body Temple/Wholeness

20th Day   Thursday

(Note from Rev. Toni:   Remember that Charles Fillmore was writing this in the early 1900’s;  take a deep breath as you read this entry.  Open up to the metaphysical meaning of these ideas.  Also note that the 2017 edition uses the concept of Wholeness.)

The Body Temple

From Keep A True Lent by Charles Fillmore
Read Matthew 6:16-34.  God created the idea of the body as a self-perpetuating, self-renewing organism, which man reconstructs into his personal body. God created the body idea, and man, by his thinking manifests.  I realize that I shall have a perfect body and a perfect world when I understand and use the perfect word, the word that contains all the attributes of God.  Therefore, I declare that my words are being charged with a full understanding of Divine Mind and its inhering ideas, and that I consciously apply this understanding in all of my feeling, thinking, speaking, and living and am therefore steadily putting on the Christ in mind and body.  Overcoming step by step the limitations of material thought, my body becomes more refined and increasingly radiant.  The law is that my body is transformed by the renewing of the mind. By affirmation the mind lays hold of living words of Truth and builds them into the body. As I enter into and abide in the Son of God consciousness I have eternal life and my body is transformed into pure flesh manifesting the perfection of Spirit.  To bless is to invoke good on that which is blessed. It is to confer God’s good on something or someone. Therefore I bless my body temple, and declare its purity and strength and beauty. I pour out upon my body temple the oil of love and clothe it in garments of praise.  Realizing that the body of Christ in me is the result of my spiritual thought that maintains its unity with Spirit even in manifestation, I affirm:  “The Word of God in me quickens my mind, and my body is transformed into the likeness of His glorious body.”

Wholeness

By Rev. Toni Stephens Coleman

I focus on love and experience “the pure essence of Being that binds together the whole human family.”  (from Charles Fillmore)

The dictionary tells us wholeness comprises the full quantity and pertains to all aspects of human nature—body, mind, and spirit. We are part of and inseparable from a universal wholeness.  Charles Fillmore said, “Love is the power that joins and binds in divine harmony the universe and everything in it,” creating wholeness. He also said, “Divine love will bring your own to you; it can adjust all misunderstandings and make your life and affairs healthy, happy, harmonious, and free.”  Wholeness takes place one moment at a time—one breath, one hour, one day, one experience at a time as we actively demonstrate love. From our spirit self, we imbue every cell in our body and mind with pure love and experience our wholeness in the whole of life.  Know and express yourself as part of the whole human family.  Wrap yourself in love and goodness, and express it into the world to create peace, harmony, and wholeness.
