From Collected Writings by Bicknell Young
A reading of this chapter is available on YouTube or listen right here:
When you awaken in the morning, realize and repeat understandingly and at once, “There is only one Mind.” And right then, before the mesmerism of the day is taken in, establish the truth about Day. (see Glossary) Know that the belief of time has no dominion over you or others; you have dominion over it. Establish your days in consciousness and unfoldment. Day has no routine. When you awaken, know that you have time and opportunity to do all things that you need to do this day. Declare, that there is one Mind, that all things are already done in Mind, and that you have not a thing to do but be clear in consciousness, so that Mind may unfold. If you stick to this, you will have plenty of time and opportunity to do all things that you need to do. Know in the morning, that Day is the unfoldment of His plan; inspiration, that does not know how to begin nor end. All the incidents of God’s day are already arranged.
What do you have to do today? You have one thing to do, and that is to know the Truth. When confronted with sixteen hours work, just know the Truth the first thing. Do not start out with the belief that you have certain things to do. If you do, you are mesmerized already. You must know this before you get started, or it is too late. Infinite unfoldment never begins, never ends, and is never interrupted for a moment, and when you are declaring this forever unfoldment of God’s day, plan, and purpose, this is healing for today.
Infinite Love knows no limitation, it cannot be restricted in achievement, and its laws are irrevocable and cannot be interfered with. This day does not begin nor end; it does not bring you or me, nor anyone, nearer the tomb, in belief nor at all. This day takes you and all creation nearer immortality. This day is the very action of Omniscience. There is no power manifested in this day but Omnipotence. This day has divine order, and it comes about scientifically. All requirements of this day are established, and do not require time. This day is Spirit, not matter, and do not let material things say, “I AM” in any incident of creation. This day is immortality revealed and demonstrated. It has no night. It is eternal light, the irradiance of Spirit, God.
No problem can enter God’s day. Mind is not engaged with problems. Mind unfolds its ideas without interruption. It has all versatility, all originality, and all variety. It is infinite, and all its manifestations are complete, whole, and satisfied, for man is a state of God’s complete and supreme satisfaction.
Health means wholeness. One does not need to appear as anything else but whole. The original meaning of health is just that, just to be complete, nothing wanting, nothing lacking, and health we must have. It is divinely natural. Everyone may have it by claiming it. It can be had in Christian Science, because Christian Science reveals the law and science of life in Christ. It needs to be, and can be, demonstrated. You can demonstrate it. Try to do it, and help others to do it this day. This DAILY work will do much, that you cannot appreciate at once. Right understanding of Day lifts the burden of mortal belief, and serves to dissipate the current mesmerism of mortal mind, as well as protecting you from its claims.
