The attainment of that Paul describes as I live yet not I, Christ liveth in me, remember that: I live yet not I. There is another being, there is another selfhood, there is another something besides the physical and mental me, and he called that something “Christ” which really means Son of God. [...]

God’s Grace Without Price or Reason 4/4

December 14, 2016 // 0 Comments

Without words and without thoughts, you can almost feel your heart opening out to receive the Master, to receive divine grace, without thinking it, without speaking it. In complete silence, just have the attitude or motive of, “Here I am, Father. Thy will be done in me.” Learn to pray without words and without thoughts. [...]

Contemplative Meditation on Grace 1/5

December 7, 2016 // 0 Comments

All right. Now let me give you the first, the greatest Principle of this message of The Infinite Way, the Principle upon which its entire activity has been founded. God constitutes individual being. God constitutes your being. And that is why Scripture says, “The place whereon thou standest is holy ground.” I and the Father are here where I am. God is the mind of me. This means of you. God is the Life. God is the Soul. God is the Spirit. Therefore, God is the capacity of your individual being. [...]

Teaching the Nature of God 5/5

September 21, 2016 // 0 Comments

Prayer is a state of silence in which we commune, in which we receive God's grace and where every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God becomes power, and we become the receptivity through which it flows. And that's why the Master could say, "I am a servant.” And in this relationship, that's all we are. We're a servant here, receiving the grace of God and allowing it to flow. [...]

Prayer is no longer words or thoughts. Prayer is no longer asking God to do something or expecting something of God. Now prayer has got a whole new meaning. And, as I see it, prayer is a state of silence in which I become receptive to the word of God. Prayer is a state of silence, where the mind is still and the spiritual faculty is alert and receives the grace of God. This is prayer. [...]

Yes, they really think God's going to hear them when they make affirmations, and denials, and statements of Truth. They really think God is going to hear them, and if they don't, they think the patient's going to hear them—patients least possible to hear them. Certainly not God. [...]

The Deep Silence of My Peace 2/3

May 28, 2016 // 0 Comments

Those of you who feel this, who are touched by the divine Presence, will want to maintain it always. There is a way, it is the way of frequent silence and frequent meditation, frequent opening of thought to the Christ, to the realization of the divine Presence. At the first flurry of an entrance from the world into your consciousness—retire into this, even while at your work. Be not afraid, it is I. [...]

The Deep Silence of My Peace 1/3

May 24, 2016 // 0 Comments

Let us have that sense of the divine Presence, you will have the completed treatment. Let us fail to achieve this sense of peace, and the treatment is not a treatment. “In My presence, the fire does not burn, and the water does not drown. In My presence the storms do not rage, the power of Christ is the answer to every form of inharmony.” The feeling of the Presence is in Itself the treatment. Let us understand this now, let us understand this: our problem is at an end, not when we think we have found a solution, but when we have felt this inner peace. [...]
