So tonight I want to talk to you about the first principle, which you can always fall back on when in doubt.

This first principle is: “Be still and know that I am God.”

No matter what happens turn within and be still. Know that your awareness is God and that all things are possible to you.

Test yourself and you will prove this statement in the testing; then you will be free from your former limitations of belief.

No matter what is happening on the outside turn to the first principle.

Start by being still, then claiming: “I am God.”

Ask yourself: “Is this true?”

You will never know the truth until you test it.

— Neville Goddard (The First Principle, 1969)
