On October 1, 2018, Dr. Ernest Holmes asks us to pause and remember that we have a perfect business partner in all our earthly dealings. God and Company has no competitors. There are no other goods so perfect as those we manufacture. There are no other patterns so attractive.
The Business of Life
Affirmation:Today I learn to enter more fully into my Divine companionship.
We are in partnership with the Infinite Mind. The name of this partnership is “God and Company.” The supreme Intelligence, the universal Creative Order, the dynamic Law and all-perfect Presence — this is God, the Silent Partner. We are the Company. This partnership cannot be dissolved for this union was never created — it always has been and always must remain.
We are in league with the universe and this Company, with which we do business, having Its center everywhere and Its
circumference nowhere — being omnipresent — localized to wherever thought and consciousness function. Wherever we place our attention, there the Company is doing business. And wherever this Company does business, there is Divine activity.
The activity of right ideas is the Father’s business, and the business of the son. That is, the individual mind and the Parent Mind are one, and at whatever point we place our mental attention, at that point the firm of God and company establishes a branch which is certain to be successful.
God and Company has no competitors. There are no other goods so perfect as those we manufacture. There are no other patterns so attractive. There is no other machinery so noiseless, perfect and efficient. God and Company, therefore, never deal with competition but always with completeness. … In actual practice, we must claim this Divine Partnership; we must claim that we are a member of God and Company, that the business of life is good — active, happy, whole.
