Two Steps To Spiritual Freedom (3/4)

March 3, 2015 // 0 Comments

But if I do not know the nature of God this way, how can I know the nature of my perfect self? If I do not credit God with being pure, how then can I say I am the showing forth of God, therefore, I am pure? For I cannot be any more pure than my source, my essence, my substance. [...]

Two Steps To Spiritual Freedom (2/4)

Whatever immortality is being made manifest through us is the immortality of God. Whatever of love, whatever of justice, is the love or the justice of God. Whatever of intelligence . . . his understanding is infinite. What good is that to you or me unless he and I are one? Then his infinite understanding becomes the measure, the capacity of my understanding. Only in oneness does that happen. [...]

This is the God that Jesus presents: the God that demands of us that we hold no one in condemnation; that we visit no punishments, no sins, no diseases, no deaths, on the sinner. What then do we know of God? Is not God greater than we? Is not the love of God greater than any love that we can express? Is not the wisdom and the justice of God greater than the wisdom and the justice of man? [...]

Grace (4/4)

February 16, 2015 // 0 Comments

To believe that a search must have an ending, and that it is useless without one, is to cling still to the material belief of struggle and fulfillment, of winning a final prize, a crown set upon one’s head. And then one is back where one started, in the scale of values one was so desperately trying to leave. In the deepest sense of truth, we are already beyond it. We are fulfillment ourselves, and the harmony and security we are seeking are within ourselves. This is what we have always to know, always to remember. No one has ever said that it was easy. [...]

Grace (3/4)

We know that we must seek first the kingdom of Heaven, but we also remember that “all these things shall be added unto you.” It is hard to forget that promise. We know that we must not seek these things, that our mind and spirit must be seeking the kingdom of Heaven only—but there is always the thought that if we find God all these things will be added. As has been stated in The Infinite Way Writing of Joel Goldsmith: “There are no added things in God. God is the Thing Itself.” " [...]

The secret of Grace is contact with the Infinite Invisible, the universal center of being within you. The earnest seeking of the realization of the kingdom of God, through reading and studying inspirational literature and scripture, and through frequent pondering and meditating of God and God’s creation (leading to actual communion with the Father within) brings to your consciousness the touch of the Christ.

Function Of Mind Part 1

It is possible to experience God. As a matter of fact that is the goal of all of our work. It is possible to know God aright, it is possible to be consciously one with God so that there is no place where God leaves off, and we begin. But it is not possible to analyze, dissect, or describe God. [...]

Contemplation Develops the Beholder (5/5)

And we become beholders of the Christ in action. And as beholders of the Christ in action we are able to pierce, to see through the veil of illusion. And then instead of the ugly picture that the human mind has drawn—we begin to see Reality. [...]

Contemplation Develops the Beholder (4/5)

February 3, 2015 // 0 Comments

Just see neither good nor evil, be a beholder, and then let something take place within you—let the Father present the picture to you. You just bear witness, you just behold! But not with any idea of healing anyone, not with the idea of improving or enriching anyone—merely with the idea of beholding the picture as God made it and as God sees it. [...]

Contemplation Develops the Beholder (3/5)

You never enter into the picture, you never seek to change it, improve it, heal it, remove it, destroy it, or make it better. Always, you are at the absolute center of your own being as a beholder. And as a beholder you can truthfully say, “what a beautiful sunset, what a beautiful sunrise God is bringing about, or nature is bringing about.” [...]
