Beginning Steps 3/4

July 8, 2019 // 0 Comments

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. [...]

And to me, of course, the powerful reminder has always been, “My kingdom is not of this world.” Therefore, don’t waste your time trying to patch up this world but spend your time trying to find My Kingdom. [...]

In other words, all the things the world is struggling to get, even those things that the world goes to church to get, the sword of the Spirit takes from us.  “My kingdom is not of this world” best describes that and those who go to God or to the spiritual path thinking to gain the things of this world probably would be better off if they jumped overbroad quickly, ended their sufferings as rapidly as possible.  “My kingdom is not of this world” is descriptive of the spiritual experience.  [...]

Praise – Thanksgiving – Adoration 3/4

November 22, 2017 // 0 Comments

As a matter of fact, there is no God actually, that cares whether or not any individual pays homage to God. Not any more than the sunshine wants gratitude for shining, or the rain wants gratitude for growing crops, or the shade wants gratitude for protecting us from heat. No. No, God, so far as God is concerned, God has no need of any of this form of what we call worship or adoration, praise, and thanksgiving. [...]

Praise – Thanksgiving – Adoration 2/4

November 22, 2017 // 0 Comments

Each one must retire to the inner sanctuary of their own being, and find their God experience there. Oh yes, we can find those who are either illumined or on the path of illumination, and we can like this, share something, but whether you have an experience, a God experience, in this room while we are all here, or whether you have it when you are at home all alone, you may even have it at the dinner table with your family, remember this. It is an individual experience taking place within you, and it doesn't concern anybody else in this room, or at your table at home, or wherever you may be. Always, whether you are…You may by chance go to the stadium to witness some event and have it while you are there. [...]

Only in the abiding in this spiritual realization, is one connected with the vine, and the tree. The 15th Chapter of John is the summary of the entire mystical life of man and contains the entire secret of man’s harmonious immortal and eternal life, even on earth. “If you abide in this word, if you let Me abide in you, you will bear fruit richly; for you are the branch, I am the vine, and God is the tree.” If you do not keep this word God in your forehead, on your arm and on your doorstep, You will be as a branch of the tree that is cut off and withereth.

Establish God Realization 2/6

If you can’t heal, you can’t teach. There’s no use about it. You haven’t anything to teach if you can’t heal, because all you’ve got is lip service. All you’ve got is words in a book. And therefore, no one is going to really go far in this work unless they can heal. But if they can heal, there’s no limit to where they’re going to go. [...]

A master is a servant of everyone on earth who is seeking spiritual good. They’re a servant in time, in effort, and labor. They have to heal the sick, raise the dead, they have to feed the hungry; they have to share everything they’ve got. They have to sit up nights with them. They have to teach them morning, noon, and night. and you’ll find that the only thing they’re master over is just about nothing. [...]

And when I say to them, “Do you know what a master is?” Well, they think so; they’ve read about it in books. “No,” I said, “You couldn’t read about it in books, because those who know what a master is, won’t put it in books, because they don’t want to discourage you from trying. But I can tell you—a master is a servant.” [...]

Now it isn’t that I extend myself or go out visiting. It is that I am God, and as you reach out to me, you’re not reaching out to a person with a brain … truly, but you are reaching out to a state of consciousness that in some measure has recognized that fear of personal selfhood is the cause of our discords.
