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 happenstances —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.
