And thus ever, behind the coarse effect, is a fine cause, which
being narrowly seen, is itself the effect of a finer cause.

The universe does appear to work according to a
fine and natural order of its own creation. This becomes apparent
to us as we find ourselves working with the universal
law of mind, which we must do since our minds are part of
the God mind. Actually, we discover soon enough when we
are not in accord with the movement of divine order because
things seem to be “stuck.” The flow is not smooth, and we
seem to be pushing uphill.
This often appears if the outcomes we receive do not match
what we think we want. Perhaps we approached the law with
mixed thoughts, confused thoughts or angry thoughts, which
can only produce their like in our lives. Perhaps we want to
control an outcome; we want others to behave according to our
desires — and we all know how this turns out!
We would do well to remember that universal order follows
its own law, and we must understand how the law of cause
and effect works. We need to remember that whatever we give
the law to work on, it will reproduce in our lives.
Ernest Holmes reminds us that “we attract to ourselves the
objective form of our subjective embodiments. Law knows
how to make things out of ideas.” Our task, then, is to make
sure our conscious thoughts and subconscious beliefs work
together for successful living through the forms our thoughts
The Divine Good fulfills me — always has, always will — and
I access it every day. My thoughts are clear and orderly. I make sure
I give power to the ideas I wish to see as outcomes in my life.
