Major Principles of The Infinite Way
The Infinite Way reveals that the Christ-experience is a present possibility. This means, literally, that each one of us, in proportion to his devotion to the search, may achieve some measure of the mind which was also in Christ Jesus.
What happens when we attain a measure of spiritual consciousness is this: The Christ takes over our experience and acts as a power, performing that which is our work, drawing to us the persons, things, supply, opportunities, activities, rewards, and recognition necessary to our daily life. You will remember that Paul said, “I live, yet not I, Christ liveth my life.” And in that quotation you will find the experience that actually happens when the Christ is realized in our consciousness. You will recall that in Scripture we are reminded that “he performeth the thing that is appointed me.” There again is the reminder that this Presence once realized does take over our experience – guides us, governs us, rules us, leads us, supplies us, maintains us, and sustains us throughout all our life. As a matter of fact, the realization of the Christ once achieved always goes before us to make the crooked places straight it provides the manna for our daily needs. Always there is this It, which is ever with us, which ever goes before us, which illumines us and keeps us on the spiritual path of harmony, wholeness, completeness, and perfection.
