The “I” within (3/4)

April 19, 2014 // 0 Comments

The kingdom of God is within me; therefore, the place whereon I stand is holy ground; up in heaven, down in hell, in prison, in the valley of the shadow of death – where I am is holy ground, here and now in this very place, regardless of appearances to the contrary.   Here where I am, God is “closer to me than breathing, nearer than hands and feet.” [...]

Good Friday: The Crucifixion of Personal Sense

April 19, 2014 // 0 Comments

       There we see the principle of Good Friday, the principle of the crucifixion of personal sense, a crucifixion of the belief that we of ourselves have qualities of good or quantities of good. But with that crucifixion, comes the resurrection in the realization, “I am nothing, but I can give you all.” Why? Because “the Father that dwelleth in me, he doeth the works.” [...]

My will would be to see everyone instantly healed, but would that result in their awakening to spiritual values, in the opening of the soul? No! I must sit back and wait patiently for the will of God to make Itself known. [...]

Many persons who are very good students of truth cannot heal because as long as they have only the letter of truth, they are believing it merely with the mind, and since it is the mind that has caused the difficulty, the mind is not going to cure it. The beliefs in the mind cause all the errors; therefore, another belief in the mind is not going to cure them. You must transcend the mind, and when you have transcended the mind all these things that the mind declares or believes in are proved unreal. [...]
