Ernest Holmes: Today is a new beginning. The past is gone. Today is mine. Today is new material for me to use. I can make of it what I will. If my thought-pattern  is life, substance, peace, then each today will be filled with manifestations  of health, prosperity, and all good. Today is a new beginning.

I know more of  Truth today than I have ever known before. I am more conscious of the creative  power of my thought than I was last year. With new understanding I am in a  better position to create for myself happy experiences. Happy experiences are not happen-stances—they are the results of mental concepts. Only true happiness can express the God-within-me. I am using the creative power of my  thought in a constructive way to the end that happiness may result. This is the best year I have ever lived.
