The life we live is God’s life. The soul we have is God. But until this moment of illumination, until this moment of realization, we have no benefit. But from the moment of illumination, from that moment the presence goes before us to make the crooked places straight. [...]

Three Principles and Their Practice 2/4

August 23, 2017 // 0 Comments

The overcoming has to be within you. And the overcoming that has to take place within you is your recognition of the truth: I will never leave you nor forsake you.

It takes a good deal of silent meditation, a good deal of silent wrangling with your own former beliefs, until you reach that place within your own consciousness where you know that God is closer to you than breathing and nearer than hands and feet, and that you can sit there in quietness and in confidence and be assured the kingdom of God is closer to me than breathing; it is where I am.
