Let not my mind deny the Thought of God.

1. What makes this world seem real except your own denial of the truth that lies beyond?

²What but your thoughts of misery and death obscure the perfect happiness and the eternal life your Father wills for you?

³And what could hide what cannot be concealed except illusion?

⁴What could keep from you what you already have except your choice to see it not, denying it is there?

2. The Thought of God created you.

²It left you not, nor have you ever been apart from it an instant.

³It belongs to you.

⁴By it you live.

⁵It is your Source of life, holding you one with it, and everything is one with you because it left you not.

⁶The Thought of God protects you, cares for you, makes soft your resting place and smooth your way, lighting your mind with happiness and love.

⁷Eternity and everlasting life shine in your mind, because the Thought of God has left you not, and still abides with you.

3. Who would deny his safety and his peace, his joy, his healing and his peace of mind, his quiet rest, his calm awakening, if he but recognized where they abide?
