But the secret is – never be egotistical enough, even to go into your kitchen to prepare some food without first going within to the Father and seeing if that is the next step. Sometimes you may find yourself interrupted and not finish what you are about to do. Whereas left to your own judgement you would have gone right ahead with no consideration for the Will of God. Nevertheless, “not my will but Thine be done.”
Ah! Those are nothing but words unless they are carried out by actions, and they are never carried out by actions unless we turn within over and over and over and over again during the day and night, to find out what is the Will of the Father. Not just when we’re ready to be crucified – always. And the only way we can know the Will of the Father is to shut out this world of sense and turn within. Nevertheless, not my will but Thine be done; or Speak Lord, Thy servant heareth.
Now, let us remember that we know something now that we have not heretofore understood.
We know the Secret of the Resurrection; we know that that entire story was to show us how the imprisoned …………..(?) which seems to be locked up in this tomb of human experience and human body, really isn’t there. When spiritual illumination comes it discovers that I never was there because I am risen.
Thank you for tonight. You have a tremendous, tremendous lesson between now and when class begins.
