Right now, in the instant when she seeks it, forgiveness is there. “Neither do I condemn thee.” The thief on the cross, “Neither do I condemn thee. I will take thee into paradise with me this very night.” In other words, the whole of the Master’s teaching is forgiveness, not punishment. [...]

You recognize, of course, that the human race is that branch of a tree that is cut off and is dying. It is always dying and always has died—in disease, or in sin, or in war. It is always going through a dying process [...]

And, you see, that brings me now to a very very important point. We never demonstrate health. We never demonstrate supply. We never demonstrate peace on earth. We demonstrate God. That’s all we can ever demonstrate. And, these other things are the effects of demonstrating God. Do you see that? [...]

You have to have spiritual discernment, in order to behold the things of God, because the things of God are foolishness with man. And the things of man are foolishness with God. So, you can’t look through your eyes, or hear with your ears, and try to judge of God’s kingdom. God’s kingdom is revealed to each one, individually, through the inner listening ear. Do you see that?

Now, that’s the secret. Everybody must eventually learn principles of healing, and not just a faith that God is going to do something. Because, God isn’t. God isn’t going to do anything. God’s work was done in the beginning. God isn’t inventing telephones, and telegraphs, and televisions, these days. [...]

Every time we give a treatment, it should be God giving the treatment, not our limited sense of our self. We can preface the prayer or treatment with the remembering of certain basic principles, like the one power, or the universal nature of error, the impersonalization, and nothing[ness]. But, those aren’t the healing agencies. The healing agency is the consciousness that you evolve when you ponder those principles and thereby lose your faith in material powers. [...]

Only when we see life as the I that I am, or that I am life eternal can we hope to demonstrate life, life, which is not healthy; because the life of God is not healthy. The life of God is a state of immortality, and nothing ever enters that life to defile or make a lie. But is that the life that I am? Of course it is. [...]

It is a spontaneous Truth flashing into consciousness at a specific moment that really does the greater works. And, it is for this reason that we at all times must be completely empty, completely empty of reliances, so that we can receive the activity of Christ, the spirit of God at any given moment by being still. “Be still, and know that I.” [...]
