I’m not fighting these evils in the world. I’m recognizing that they have no authority, no law, no cause, no presence; that they exist only as the second chapter of Genesis—the mind of man—without divine authority; without divine, creative Principle. And, in that realization, I put up the sword, both material and mental, and sit here in order to become clad in the armor of Spirit. And then when the Spirit of the Lord God is upon me, material sense around me, in me begins to dissolve.” [...]

What you have to do, in every case, is say, “Regardless of what form the error assumes, the error itself is material sense, and I can’t fight material sense. He that is within me is greater than he that is in the world. I can of my own self do nothing. The Father within me, He doeth the works. Therefore, I’ve got to sit here now until the Father within me becomes a reality, not just a quotation, not an affirmation but a reality, a realized consciousness.” [...]

Now, we have to go back to our individual selves to understand this. Nowhere in The Infinite Way writings do you find any excuse for using material remedies in your own particular case or mental remedies. You are told distinctly that the Principles are: The battle is not yours. Stand ye still. See the salvation of the Lord. Resist not evil. This is the greatest of all our Principles—resist not evil.

If I am doing wrong thinking on something, it isn’t because I consciously want to. It is something that’s so deeply ingrained that even I, if I could detect it, can’t get it out. For instance, have you ever tried to tell a patient to stop fearing? Have you ever succeeded? [...]

No, the principles of The Infinite Way are universal principles that are meant to, well, act as the second coming of the Christ; in other words, to bring peace, harmony, wholeness to human consciousness. [...]

Well, I’m going to say to you, and I hope you will say to those who come to you that while I would not like to hear that anybody turned these tapes on at night and had them going while they were asleep, I do hope that the tapes of this Chicago class—and for you the tapes of this—will be kept pretty busy until these principles are clearly stated within you. [...]

Now, it all boils down to:  Is there mental power through belief, or is there a physical power, or is Spirit the only power?  And so, you’ll find that everybody on the earth is suffering from beliefs, accepted and entertained, not consciously but merely by the fact that they’re born into the human world.  [...]

Now, if material sense makes us ill, the antidote for it is spiritual consciousness or the realization that Spirit alone is power.  If I say that Spirit alone is power and I don’t love God and man, I’m a liar.  So I’m full of rheumatism, or cancer, or consumption, or something else.  So, I have to open out a way for the imprisoned splendor to escape.  I have to open out a way for forgiveness to flow out from me, prayers to flow out from me for the good and the bad.  [...]

Now, as I live in that consciousness, I wonder if you think that rheumatism or arthritis can take hold of that consciousness. Is there any rheumatism going out of my consciousness? No, there’s life, proof, and love. Now, nobody got the rheumatism or arthritis outside their own being. They got it from accepting the world’s way of life. One person got rheumatism, another one got cancer, another one got consumption, and another one got polio. How? [...]
