God is One Presence and One Power everywhere equally present, expressing as certain qualities or attributes.  These qualities are already the essence of our nature, because our essential nature is God.  As we bring forth these qualities from within and welcome them into expression in all areas of our

lives, we find ourselves living our true nature — living the life of God.

Take some time to read over the list, and find one or two qualities that you would like to focus on bringing into expression in your life this year.  Consider what you must think, how you must act, what must be released and what welcomed in order to manifest this quality in your consciousness and experience.
