“During the evening, read books that help you by letting the living Christ select the book. Discuss the book with a loved one: How do you feel about what has been said? If you’re past reading books, then write a book.

Finish your evening with a half hour of prayer. Declare that your night is filled with Light, that there is only Light there. “I am the living Christ. I am the Creator-in-Action. My night is filled with Good.”

You’ll probably wake up around two or three o’clock in the morning. Get up and pray. Pray for the world, for trouble spots on the planet, for the universe. You can start your prayers for self, for loving yourself, and then expand with prayers for your home, your country, for the world, and for the universe.
