Right here within my own being
Right here within my own being is the Father within me,
and this Father knows what thoughts I have.
This Father knows the meditations of my heart.
This Father knows whether or not I act from a standpoint of purity,
and let me never believe that I can fool Him.
You are being heard and answered.
Once you get used to this idea of the relationship
of an indwelling spirit,
you learn to mold every thought and deed in accord with Its Will.
When you pray in secret,
I and this Father within me are One,
and all that the Father hath is mine.
It is my gift; it is my inheritance;
it is my Father’s good pleasure to give me the kingdom,
I need not look to any man whose breath is in his nostril.
I need not look to anyone for
reward, compensation, gratitude, cooperation, affection.
No. No, all that the Father hath is mine,
and my heavenly Father knoweth that I have need of these things,
and it is his good pleasure to give me the kingdom.
Joel Goldsmith, 1958 How To Heal
