Specific Principles (1/5)

June 8, 2014 // 0 Comments

There is no way to explain it.  Those who meditate eventually will realize that I am I, and then they will know that I am I, eternally and immortally.  Whether or not they remember past experiences is of absolutely no importance.  You, at this particular minute, probably do not know any of your past experiences, and may never even have thought that you had them. On the other hand, there are those who, through spiritual development, are made aware of their past experience – and yet, not necessarily of all of the experiences of the past, but probably the experience of one particular lifetime, or two or three or four, as the occasion may require.  Now, as a person develops spiritually, and a spiritual work is given them to do, they are provided with everything necessary for their experience, and if it is necessary for them to know something of their past experience, or the why and wherefore of their present experience, it is revealed to them.

The Essence Of The Infinite

June 8, 2014 // 0 Comments

Now in our work we handle every claim: disease, sin, false appearance—that is brought to us not as a person but as the presentation of the carnal mind in one form or another. And then recognize that since the carnal mind is not ordained of God, it is not power. It has no power, is not a law, has no law and therefore must fall by virtue of its own nothingness. By impersonalizing evil in that way we have found that most of the claims yield quickly and thoroughly because we have not touched a person. We have not tried to change a person or psychoanalyze a person. We have known the truth which is that all evil is a belief in two powers. [...]

The Mystical I

In opening consciousness, a Presence comes in. You may not at first be aware of It as an actual Presence, but eventually you will, because It is a Presence, It is a Spirit. [...]

Let the Nature of God Be Revealed in Meditation

May 27, 2014 // 0 Comments

Jesus called God “the Father within,” but how many of us in this modern world know what Jesus meant when he spoke of God as Father? None of us has any idea what the heavenly Father means because that Father is nothing like a human father. And so unless we understand the real meaning of Father in the sense in which Jesus used the word, when we speak of God as Father, we are merely mouthing words. [...]

Attaining the Higher Dimension of Life

May 26, 2014 // 2 Comments

“My kingdom is not of this world” – not of the mental and physical world. In this kingdom, there is a peace that can ever be known with the mind or body: “My peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you.” This is an entirely different realm of consciousness. In this higher consciousness, there is only being: There are no laws; there is no cause and no effect; there is neither good nor evil, up nor down. There is just being. [...]

Spiritual Consciousness (4/4)

May 21, 2014 // 0 Comments

God is infinite divine consciousness; therefore God is your individual consciousness, and this consciousness is the law unto your life.  Don’t try to direct it; be satisfied that it is so and rest in that Word.  God is infinite divine consciousness; therefore God is my consciousness and your consciousness; his consciousness and her consciousness; the consciousness of friend and of foe –universal, divine, omnipresent being, God consciousness – the law unto all creation.  And when you rest in that, It picks you up and transforms the mind, the body, and what is called the outer experience, but which now you learn isn’t outer at all.  It’s all taking place within you. [...]

Spiritual Consciousness (3/4)

Back in the earlier days of the aborigines of Australia, you had there with such complete knowledge of mind power that they could bless, but they could also curse and kill, just with the power of their mind.  The Hawaiians had the good Kahunas that could heal; the bad Kahunas who could kill.  There have been sects of people in most parts of the world where there were original natives, primitive people, and all of these knew the power of mind, and how to use it for good or evil.

Spiritual consciousness (2/4)

May 21, 2014 // 0 Comments

The nature of our being is the same as the nature of God’s being for we are one, and yet relaxing in that oneness we permit the invisible to uphold us, sustain us, move us, feed us, clothe us, house us, direct us, instruct us.  [...]

Spiritual Consciousness (1/4)

Imagine, if you can, what would be the nature of a God that could watch these last three wars through which we’ve gone and do nothing about it.  Just let it go on, aware of it?  Heaven forbid that there should be such a God!  If God had the power to stop these wars – these bombings, the poverty, the slavery in some parts of the world – and didn’t stop it, God would be fiend, not a God; and if God didn’t have the power to stop it, God certainly wouldn’t be a God – one or the other.  If God had the power to stop it and didn’t, it could not be God; if God had the power to stop it, and didn’t, God would be a fiend.  Not even a human parent could watch this carnage and permit it to go on if they could stop it.
