Life is consciousness.
Criticism is an indirect form of self-boasting.
If you want to dismiss a negative thought, the only way to do so is to think of something positive and constructive.
Nature always takes you at your own valuation. Believe you are the child of God-really believe it. Believe that you express Divine Life, Divine Truth, and Divine Love. Believe that Divine Wisdom guides you. Believe that God is your supply. Believe that God is helping and blessing humanity through you. Believe that you are a special enterprise on the part of God and that he is opening your way-and what you really believe, that you will demonstrate.
Life is a state of consciousness.
