Universal Being

God is not a superperson who goes around saying, “I will do this for this you here, but I will not do it for that you over there,” or “I will do this for my good Hebrew people, but I will not do it for you Christian people.” Is that not nonsense? [...]

Principles of Healing 2/4

It may be that the master was trying to tell us this also when he said, my kingdom is not of this world. If this is a true statement of the master’s it would indicate why praying to his kingdom for something of this world hasn’t worked in the past and probably won’t work in the future. My kingdom is not of this world. [...]

WITHINNESS 1/7

January 20, 2016 // 0 Comments

WITHINNESS At this stage of our unfoldment the time has come when we must relinquish our old theological beliefs and come to understand the nature of God. This I give to you: God is! God is good! God is omnipresent! The allness of the presence of God, in Its infinite goodness, power, intelligence, wisdom, and love, is present—here, where you are and where I am. “Closer is He than breathing, and nearer than hands and feet.” None of us can make it so, and none of us can present its being so—it is so! God is! Is it not foolish to believe that God will do something for you that He might not do for your neighbor; or that God will do something tomorrow that He is not already doing today? There is no reason to believe that God is withholding your good, and therefore it is useless to go to God as if you were seeking to influence Him to do something that He is not already doing. In order to avail yourselves of the abundant flow of good, and bring it into your experience, it is necessary to open your own consciousness to the receptivity of the presence, power, and activity of God. We must not seek to obtain God’s goodness. Instead, we must agree that God’s goodness is embodied within us, that the goodness and allness of God constitute our very being. This is beautifully stated in the words of the beloved poet, Browning: Truth is within ourselves; it takes no rise From outward things, whate’re you may believe. There is an inmost center in us all, Where truth abides in fullness;…and, to know, Rather consists in opening out a way Whence the imprisoned splendour may escape, Than in effecting entry for a light Supposed to be without. Paracelsus: Robert Browning Many people believe that they are seeking companionship, and because they are lonely they often ask for help, but that really is not what they mean at all. They are seeking companions. If it were companionship they desired they would not have to ask for help, because companionship is not something outside their own being! Companionship is within you and, instead of looking to someone else to express it, you must express it! [...]

Attainment of the Contemplative Life (3/5)

January 3, 2015 // 0 Comments

Once you personalize God, you separate yourself from God’s Grace. The moment you impersonalize by realizing the universal nature of God, and the equality of God’s Grace and bestowal, then you place yourself in the position of praying for your enemies. In other words, knowing the Truth equally about friend or foe, or Greek or Jew, or white or black, or Oriental or Occidental, you are knowing a universal Truth, and you are bringing yourself into a universal principle.
