Conscious Union With God

July 14, 2014 // 0 Comments

This statement: ‘My oneness with God constitutes my oneness with all spiritual being and with every spiritual idea or thing,’ ranks as one of the highest statements of truth, one which will bring you nearer the realization of heaven than any other. [...]

What Truth do I know

July 13, 2014 // 0 Comments

How much truth do I know about God? I know that God is omnipresent, and that therefore, all God’s presence and all God’s power are flowing through me. Where God is, there can be nothing but good; there cannot be sin, disease, death, lack, or limitation. In God’s presence, is the allness of good. [...]

There is only one mind. It is a universal mind. It is the source of all action, all law, all cause. When we behold anything unlike the activity of a spiritual law or life, it is only because of the acceptance of this belief of two powers, two laws, two minds. [...]

Just think of the Master saying to Lazarus: “Come forth.” In other words, death isn’t a power. “Young maid, I say unto thee: Arise.” Death isn’t a power. He didn’t turn to God and say, “I’ll bring the power of God down to heal you or to raise you.” In fact, at the tomb of Lazarus he even said: “I don’t even have to pray, but for the sake of those around here who still believe in prayer.” But all he said was: “Lazarus, come forth. Blind man, open your eyes.” Not a word about, “I’ll have God open your eyes.” [...]

Now be very sure that you treat this as the pearl of great price. Be sure that if anyone comes to you for this that virtually they’re selling all that they have in order to buy it. In other words that really and truly they’re coming to you in humility; they’re coming to you in earnestness; they’re coming to you really and truly seeking – not curiosity seeking. [...]

You must impersonalize. You must be able to look at that individual realizing that their nature is Godly and that this sin, disease, whatever it may be, is not of that person, but is of, has its source in the carnal mind. This, of which they are the victim, this which is manifesting itself in them, on them, through them, this actually is an activity or substance of the carnal mind or mortal mind or devil. [...]

“How can I change the atmosphere of my home? How can I improve it?” Or even if it is humanly good: “How can I lift it above human goodness into the demonstration of spiritual harmony, spiritual health, spiritual purity, spiritual abundance?” [...]

You see the idea of power always suggests one power doing something to another power and that is why you have to get used to the idea of non-power, because we don’t even want a God power to do something for us.We are satisfied that God in His infinite power is already doing all that God is supposed to do; therefore, we never call upon God or God’s power to do anything.

You can never truthfully say that you are spiritual. That is egotism at its height. You are spiritual; you are perfect. I’d like to see it. You are not spiritual and you are not perfect. God is Spirit, and nobody is evil. Evil is an impersonality; evil is impersonal error. [...]

Now, I know how many metaphysicians have used that approach of, “You are spiritual and you are perfect.” Looking at the individual they were saying it to, you could hardly believe it. Or saying, “You ought to be more loving, or you ought to be more just, or you ought to be more something or other,” and then looking at them and saying, “I know you’d like to be if you could be.” What a waste of time to tell you what you ought to be. How do I know all this? Because I know what a waste of time it is to tell me to be different than I am. What I am – I am; and what I was in the past, I was; and telling me that it isn’t so good isn’t going to make me change it. First place, I’ll probably not believe it. [...]
