"Thou shalt love the Lord thy God
with all thy mind, thy body, thy soul, and thy neighbour, thy
brother, thy friend, thy foe - as thyself." The whole law is in
this. Ye can apply it to this or that extent, but do apply it in the
whole law if ye would be at peace with self and know the peace which passeth understanding to a materially-minded individual or world.
For as has been pronounced by the giver of the moral as well as the
penal code of man's relationship to man, man's relationship to God,
man's relationship to parents, man's relationship to friend and foe
alike, it is not who will come down from heaven that ye may have a
message, or who would come from over the sea that ye may hear or
interpret; for Lo, judgment, Lo, the spirit lies within thine own
heart; thine own body, thine own mind.
For the very fact that ye find yourself conscious of being alive, of
being capable of suffering disappointments, capable of being aware
of missing something within thine own experience in the present,
disappointed in people, disillusioned with your own family, should
make you aware that God is mindful of thee and that thou hast
forgotten God. Then in thy spiritual life, in thy spiritual purpose
lies the answer in thy problems, physical, mental, material,
For when ye have set thine own house in order, regardless of what
others may say, begin to read first the 19th of Exodus and the 5th
verse, and see in whom ye may trust, where thy mind and thy soul may
find rest. Consider what spirit, what purpose, what desire must
occupy thy mind.
"Now therefore, if ye will obey my voice indeed, and keep my
covenant, then ye shall be a peculiar treasure unto me above all
people: for all the earth is mine: And ye shall be unto me a Kingdom
of priests, and an Holy Nation." - Exodus 19:5-6
Then turn to the 30th of Deuteronomy and ye will read "Today there
is set before thee good and evil, life and death, choose thou." The
will, then, in self is the gift of thy Maker, thy Creator; that ye
might understand and approach Him, putting thy trust, thy hope in
His hands. For thy brother, even Jesus who became the Christ, by
making intercession, by offering Himself as the sacrifice that made
possible man's approach to God through Him, has promised, "I stand
at the door of thy heart, of thy consciousness.
If ye open, I will enter, if ye will listen to that still small
voice within." For thy body is the temple of the living God, and
there He has promised to meet thee. There ye may find the answer. Ye
have the ability. Will you listen? Then know the law of
the Lord, for it is perfect, and it's not hard to interpret if ye do
apply it literally, spiritually, mentally. If ye try to explain it,
it is hard; live it, it is easy. For as He has given,
the whole law is to love the Father, in mind, in body, in soul,
and thy neighbour as thyself. These are One. There are no
preferences before Him, save they that love His ways, for they are
a part of Him, that do such.
Love thy neighbour as thyself, and as ye would that men should do to
you, do ye even so to them. For remember, as given, ye are
constantly meeting thyself! Law is love, love is
Know that it is an unchangeable law, they that would be the
greatest among any group will be able to serve that group the more.
This requires policy, tact, as well as psychological analyses of
material and mental surroundings.
And what is the first
law? Know, O Israel, know, O Self, know, O Seeker of light, that
all power and force of good and construction, and of constructive
only from the One Source! This is only saying the same in those
words as convey the meaning, to what? That consciousness of the
arousing to the something within, as to the motivative forces that
may impel or be acted upon within the self. For, the first law
that has been given to man from the beginning is: "Thou shalt have
no other gods before me." And when man has faltered, has altered
that, which has deprived others from giving expression to that
birthright, that command that has come to man throughout the ages,
then there arises that which creates those things that are the
fruits of the evil influences that are in the earth. Such as: Hate,
jealousy, avarice, and the like. These make for the creating of
those conditions in all walks of life for
power, for position, for the love of money and that it will bring in
its associations in the lives of individuals. And, as there has been
just this experience in the affairs of the nation as a nation, the
nation as a nation is passing through that period when each soul
must turn to that thought within of what is its relation to the
Creative Forces in its experience; and each soul must ask itself
what it as a soul is going to do about that command that was given,
and that is the privilege of every soul; to show forth that very law
of love that is the birthright of every soul. For, with that command
has come ever that to which mankind may expect to find himself
reduced when he has forgotten that which is his First duty, and the
second which is likened unto it; "Thou shalt love thy neighbour as
For the first law is:
"The Lord thy God Is One Lord." And so does it apply in the body
forces. For there remains,
ever, the universal law that comes as the basis of man's
relationships to the Creative Forces; that first law, that thou shalt not have any god before thee
other than that thou wilt worship in Him! How low may he sink
through the non-application of that first law of: "Thou shalt have no
other God before me"! A natural result. For know, as the first
law has been given, when manifestation of matter was called into
being by the First Cause or God, thy seed shall be within itself,
or what ye sow ye reap, or like attracts like. For the first law is,
"Like begets like." And
what ye sow, ye shall reap. To understand self is
the first law of the proper understanding of relationships to
others, and in the application of "As ye would that men do unto you,
do ye even so to them" will bring the greater reward to the entity
of All the classics that may be understood; for while it may appear
that this may be taken advantage of at times, yet the worth, the
ability, and the very conditions that are often turned Against the
entity will turn towards good; for when the entity once understands
self, the self will better
understand others. The first law in every
life is self-preservation of the life. In the mental, keep an
attunement with the creative energies. Hold fast to that as has Been
In the self as the
criterion for self and for others; not Judging as to whether this or
that, or the other one has acted in a manner as is in keeping With
that as is held, but rather, has Self, does
Self act in a manner as would merit from the creative forces that as
is applicable in the life, and in the lives of others; bringing for
that faith, that hope, that confidence in self, and in the Giver of
all good and perfect gifts; for this is the first law of
preservation, that, making self, in mental, in in the activities of
the physical, to be in accord with the creative force as is of the
energies that make for the Satisfied forces; for, to be Satisfied is
to stand still, but, in whatsoever condition one finds himself, make
himself content, knowing that one is never tempted nor given the
burden greater than he may bear, will he make his will one with the
active forces as bring about the truth manifested in light, life,
and in the forces as of man. The Spirit is willing, the Flesh is
weak. Harken not to those
calls of the carnal forces. Be ye not carnal minded, but rather of
the spiritual forces that make for Life eternal. Keep the faith,
knowing that in whom thou hast believed is able to keep that
committed unto Him against Whatever may arise in the physical, the
mental, or the general forces of life.
"Is it in keeping with
what He would have thee present to thy brother?" For, "As ye do it
unto the least of these, my children, ye do it unto me," is the
second law of a universal nature.
Law of cause and effect
The law of cause and effect is as the law of time and space; for
cause and effect are one, and each creates its own recompense by the
application of same, and in the application of any law, which is
love, law being love, Love being law, the truth, the effect, the
cause is seen.
But remember, it is as a law: As
He, the Way, the Son, showed in materiality, in earth, the ability
to become one with the Creative Forces as to pronounce His at-onement
with the Father-God, so must each soul. He that climbeth up some
other way is as he has indicated.
As a Judge in the
Application of the Law
Use thy abilities to unite, not to separate men or purposes or
For the lesson of the Teacher, the
Christ, the Master is to look within Self; "for of myself I can do
Nothing," but it is the God that worketh within thee!
So did they find in all experiences that if credit is taken here, or
if it is sought that others thank thee or bless thee or praise thee
for the efforts that ye put forth, then ye are seeking Self-glory;
the ego of self is seeking expression!
So in these applications, hold fast to that love that He gave, and
ye will find peace and harmony, much strength and much power that is
gained only in Humbling of self, and self's own emotions, self's own
For, the very fact of an individual having a physical consciousness,
no matter his state or status in the material plane, is an
indication of the awareness that God is mindful of that soul, by
giving it an opportunity to express in the material plane.
For, each soul, each entity, enters not merely by chance but through
the grace, the mercy of a loving Father; that the soul may in and
through its own choice work out of those faults, those fancies, as
would prevent its communion wholly with, and an atonement with,
the Creative Forces.
As to the appearances in the earth. For thy pattern is set and ye
are a free-willed soul. Ye may either use or abuse the privileges
given to thee. From whence? The source of all life, and life in
every form, whether it be in the vapour, the chemical motivative
force as accredited to the vegetable, mineral or even the animal
kingdom, is of one source, God.
Make thyself, then, put thyself, be thyself, in companionship with
Creative Forces. For the purpose is that each soul should be a
co-creator with God.
For, it is not the desire of that Creative Force, of which each soul
is a part, that any be without that peace, that harmony which
enables the soul to be a manifestation of that love eternal; that is
the birthright of each and every soul.
There are the purposes for each entity's experience in
materialization, or in that man calls life. For, life itself is the
manifestation of God among man, in whatever form it may take. For
life, life force, is an expression of love. Hence each soul is given
the opportunity for the manifestation that it may be one with that
Creative Force; knowing itself, in Him, to Be itself, and yet one
with that Creative Force or God. Know that Life itself,
to be sure, is the Creative Force or God, yet its manifestations in
man are electrical, or vibratory. Know that these are unchangeable
laws. It is not by chance that ye entered this experience, but
rather through those circumstances that form the background of the
material environmental conditions that brought those purposes in
self's consciousness seeking expression. Yet it is the will of the
self that builds, that which is the gift from the Creative Forces,
that makes the entity an individual soul.
The purpose for coming into the world
That there may be the purification of self as related to the
activities in a material world. For each experience is as a lesson
that may be gained by the application of that known, and Innately
known, in the inner self.
Life must be purposeful; and that each entity, as it chooses its way
of expression, finds life manifested in that manner, or patterns may
be drawn from same, in that particular choice the entity makes in
activity. He ever was, He ever
will be. And individuals, as His children, are a part of that
consciousness. And it is for that purpose that He came into the
earth; that we, as soul-entities, might know ourselves to be
ourselves, and yet one with Him; as He, the Master, the Christ, knew
Himself to be Himself and yet one with the Father.
Thus the purpose of manifestation in the material plane; that we may
apply here a little, there a little, line upon line, precept upon
precept, that we may become like Him.
And as the entity has through the experiences seen and aided others
in the application of their efforts and their abilities to become
more and more aware of their relationships to the Creative Forces or
God, so may the entity, as He gave, in patience become ye aware of
For, as indicated in the three-dimensional consciousness: the
Father, the Son, the Holy Ghost, time, space and patience, man,
body, mind, soul, All answer one to another. Hence the first law:
"My spirit beareth witness with thy spirit."
These become, then, the first principles for an entity to analyse of
itself and of its activity in the earth.
As indicated in the certain periods, remember, as has been given, it
is not because ye were born in May, or on the 4th of May, that such
and such happened to thee. For, as a corpuscle in the body of God,
ye are free-willed, and thus a co-creator with God. Thus the
universe stood still, as it were, that ye might manifest in a
certain period that ye had attained by thy activity in the earth.
For, as He hath given in all places, Time must be full. An
individual entity's experience must be finished before the entity
may either be blotted out or come into full brotherhood with the
greater abilities, or the greater applications of self in the
creating or finishing of that begun. And thou art thy brother's
keeper. Not that ye should impose or impel another entity by thine
own ideas, any more than God impels thee. For, He hath given thee
the free will, the birthright; which is as the mind, that makes for
the alterations. Hence ye may give expression even as He did, who
came into the earth that we through Him might have eternal life.
Then, what is thy attitude? So live that thy friend, thy foe, thy
neighbour, may also, through patterning his expressions after thee,
find the way to that mercy which is manifested in Him, who gave: "I
stand at the door and knock, by thy biddings I will enter, by thy
rejection I will leave, I hold no grudge." This requires that
expression then, in time and space, of that patience of which He
spoke: "In patience become ye aware of your souls."
The purpose of life in the material world
The ideal ever is that each entity fulfill that purpose for which it
has entered any given experience.
What then are the purposes for a material manifestation of the
totality of an entity's experience through mind, spirit into matter?
That the entity may become more and more in accord with that which
would make the entity a part Of the First Cause, or Creative Forces
that are manifested in the material world in so many ways or
For Spirit is the natural, the normal condition of an entity. For
hath it not been given, God is Spirit and seeketh such to worship
Him, in spirit and in truth?
Then an entity's experience, or advent into material manifestation,
is to make the paths straight. For Today, in the experience of Every
soul manifested, is the Opportunity to make manifest that which Is
ideal, in the experience of that individual entity.
That there is spirit, mind and matter is self-evident in the
expressions in which one finds oneself by the very awareness or
consciousness of existence, and of the varying experiences or
expressions that may be had in its daily relationships, its daily
experiences with its fellow man.
Other individuals are individual manifestations of Their individual
portion of that Creative Force.
Then that there are ideal relationships in each must be
self-evident, but, as each entity, each soul, is creative and
self-willed, then Who may draw a line but that consciousness that
thy spirit beareth witness with thy Maker's Spirit, as to whether ye
fulfil that best demonstration or manifestation of thy expression in
any given period or material manifestation?
For God is not mocked, and whatsoever a man soweth that shall he
Then, there are ideal relationships in the material associations, in
the financial structure (which, sad to say, too oft is the judgment
in material associations), and in the mental attitudes, in the
And then, as must be seen, must be felt, must be experienced sooner
or later the awareness, the consciousness that, only Spirit is
everlasting, then the promptings, the balance must be spiritual in
its essence in dealing with or judging the mental attitudes, the
social relationships, the material experiences.
For unless they are such, how Can they be Ever lasting or
constructive in the experience of any individual entity?
For that which had a beginning has an end.
Then, as ye begin to show forth in thy relationships with thy fellow
man the love the Father hath shown to the sons of men, by not being
willing that any soul should be separated from Him, ye must, by the
at Some experience come to be a separation or a fusion or union with
the Creative Forces; with the abilities, by will itself, to Know
thyself to be thyself yet one with thy Maker.
Even as thy Pattern, even as thy Brother, thy Saviour, who Knew as
He gave, "I and my father are one, as ye abide in me and I in him,
so Shall ye know the truth." And as has been given, the truth shall
make you free.
Then in the present, Know Thyself and thy relationships to thy Maker
and to thy fellow man, and He hath promised, "As ye abide in me, so
may I abide in thee." Seek, ye shall find; knock and it shall be
opened unto thee. "Call and I will hear."
Is thy purpose, is thy desire then one with Him? These be thy tests.
Do ye show forth thy Lord's death till He come again? In manifesting
in thy relationships with thy fellow man the fruits of the spirit?
Hast thou grown more tolerant? Hast thou grown more patient? Hast
thou shown more brotherly love? Hast thou given of thyself, Denying
thyself that they who have lost hope, they who are wandering, they
who are discouraged might be Encouraged, find hope?
Then ye know ye are growing in grace, in knowledge, in understanding
of thy purposes in the earth. Hast thou grown to be so they who meet
thee day by day take thought that thou hast in thy mental self
walked with thy Maker?
These ye answer from within thyself. These ye know, these ye
understand. Follow in the way that leads to everlasting love, for He
is love. For as all phases of
the human experience and relations are the outgrowth of what ye do
About thy opportunities, then ye Grow to these; and they are not
laid down by rules that ye are to do this or to do that! But what is
thy mission? What do ye desire to do? What manner of life do ye
live? Life itself is the expression of the Creative Force. That is
eternity. What are ye doing about same! Each appearance is as
an opportunity. An opportunity is to the grace of God. The very fact
of being aware of thyself is assurance of the fact that the
Father-God is mindful of thee, Now, Today. Seek, then, His way. For
His way changeth not. For when He said, "In the day ye eat thereof,
ye shall surely die," that was law! But having allowed His Son to
fulfill the law, He has become the law. Yea, as thyself, for ye are
His brethren. "Who is my
mother, my brother, my sister? He that doeth the will of my Father
in heaven, the same is my mother, my brother, my sister." Then, as
thy Brother hath shown the way, walk ye therein. For He gave
Himself, when there was the material ability to have prevented same.
Thus ye may offer thyself when there is the ability to refuse; that
others may know that Jesus Is the Christ, the Son, the Brother of
those who seek to know God's way among men.
Each soul is constantly meeting itself and those activities in its
relationships to others in any given experience. Know, then, that
these are chosen with the desire to make the experience a helpful,
hopeful one; giving the faults and the virtues in such a way and
manner that the entity, through choice within its own consciousness,
may apply those things that have had and do have more to do with the
Creative or Spiritual Force within its experience.
For the material, at best, is only temporal, or temporary, while
that which may be builded from spiritual desire, spiritual purposes,
is eternal. Only good lives on. Evil, bad and indifference must be
met in their Own environ, their Own experience; and thus one grows
in grace, in knowledge, in understanding.
For, though there may be those experiences that bring harsh
reverberations, these may be tempered in such a way and manner,
through the grace that is granted or given to which each soul is
heir in the love which has been manifested in the Ideal, that the
peace as He gives may be the individual experience. Thus we find how
patience is as the gateway to the more perfect law of love that is
shown in Him.
Find within self what is thy desire and purpose. Not merely
material, for the material things and material positions should be
the outgrowth, the result; and not the whole purpose of an
experience. For they that love Him have the promise that they Shall
be clothed, they Shall not want for food nor sustenance of the body.
Know, then, the experience in any sojourn is not to the glorifying
or gratifying of the ego. That should be the result Of the
experience. This is self evident. But the purposes, the hopes, the
desires, the ideals must be founded in spiritual truths that are
eternal in their concept. Thus the material expression is a gradual
growth, an awakening, an unfoldment to the realization of the
possibilities, the opportunities, the hopes, the desires that are
before each in their life experiences.
Fruits of the Spirit
Then, these supplied, as they may be in the experience, there should
be a greater desire to so live that ye may constrain those whom ye
meet day by day to glorify Him; not by precept alone, not by merely
laudation, but by example; sowing those things in thy life that are
as the Fruits of the Spirit: Faith, Hope, Love, Kindness,
Gentleness, Patience, Brotherly Love.
And if ye have these, ye are secure and safe in the promises of Him,
who Is the Prince of Peace, not of the world as the world knows the
world, but He that Overcame the world! And so may ye overcome the
world, in His promises.
First, know thyself and thy ideals. Then, through those channels
there may come those environs in which greater opportunities and
greater blessings may be thine, provided these are kept ever with
Him as the guide, who has promised to abide with thee always. Then,
abide with Him.
The First Law, a
"Know, O Israel, the Lord thy God is One!" All power, all force, is
a manifestation of that which is termed the God-consciousness.
These are elemental or first statements, first principles. Then, the
application of an entity in materiality, is that of the first and
the last law:
"Love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, thy mind, thy soul, and
thy neighbour as thyself."
Then, each appearance, each application of an entity to those first
principles, first laws in its experiences through the earth, is for
the purpose that it may be
completed in that as given: "The Lord hath not Willed that any soul
should perish, but hath with every temptation prepared a means, a
way, of escape."
Then, for that purpose, for that activity, for that application of
these laws, these principles, these causes in the experience of each
soul, does each soul enter. For this is Its purpose, The purpose,
for the entering into material or solar or earth's manifestation at
For in the earth or the earth's dimensional experience one becomes
(an entity, a soul becomes) aware that there are three phases of its
being; body, mind, soul, yet all in one. Just as the laws, as
those given, are One.
So, the activities of an entity into the earth are to meet Self and
make the application of the love of the Father as it would to
itself, in the sons of men; that the glory of the Lord may encompass
the earth, even to become His holy
How, then, may and individual, with the knowledge Of its own self's
activities in the earth, through its varied experiences in same, go
about to apply same, to become more and more aware of its
at-oneness, its consciousness Of its at-oneness with that
consciousness of Being one with this applied law, this applied love
in its experience?
As has been given, "Do that thou Knowest to Do Today, and Then the
next step may be given thee."
For ye know that ye are studying to show self approved unto that
consciousness, that awareness, and are keeping self unspotted from
that Thou knowest that might, would or could, cause thy brother to
be offended. And ye come more and more, by such living, to the
awareness of His presence abiding with thee! Not unto vain glorying,
not unto self-consciousness; but rather that "Here am I, Lord, use
me. Let Me be that channel of blessing to Someone Today; that Thy
love, Thy glory, Thy oneness, may be the greater manifested in not
only my experience but those that I contact day by day."
Ye are a result of that ye have been.
And O that all would realize, come to the consciousness that what we
are, in any given experience, or time, is the combined results of
what we have done about the ideals that we have set!
If these are in keeping with creative or constructive influences,
then these are developing periods. If they are of the selfish
nature, or with the lack of idealism or ideals, then there is the retardment, or the lack of unfoldment.
Indeed the life and the experiences about every soul are such that
if individuals will but take the lessons, the understandings of
nature as it manifests in influences about self, they will see that
such are the expression of the individual self's unfoldment.
As an illustration: A bulb is an expression of life, of beauty, in
its filling its place in whatever environ it finds self. Man Can
change his environ, by the thinking.
The bulb cannot. But man may view the purpose of all nature, he may
view the bulb and see himself. If the environ is that which tends to
enliven, enrich by creative forces added as constructive influences,
then the beauty, the richness of the expression is a growth. But if
it is dwarfed by an influence which hinders, it does the best with
what it has.
So with man, the retrogression or progress is according to the
application. The soul of each individual is a portion then of the
Whole, With the birthright of Creative Forces to become a co-creator
with the Father, a co-laborer with Him. As that birthright is then
manifested, growth ensues. If it is made selfish, retardments must
be the result.
Just so, the expressions in the earth become as emotional forces, As
manner or means of expression or influence.
Yet unless the entity has a standard, an ideal, and lives and
expresses that in the face of activities that are and have been the
experience for constructive influences, these become as naught.
It is Well, then, that the choice be made, not because of this or
that, but as to what the entity will do with its standard, its
Each Appearance is
as an Opportunity
An opportunity is to
the grace of God. The very fact of being aware of thyself is
assurance of the fact that the Father-God is mindful of thee, Now,
Today. Seek, then, His way. For His way changeth not. For when He
said, "In the day ye eat thereof, ye shall surely die," that was
law! But having allowed His Son to fulfill the law, He has become
the law. Yea, as thyself, for
ye are His brethren. "Who is my mother, my brother, my sister? He
that doeth the will of my Father in heaven, the same is my mother,
my brother, my sister." Then, as thy Brother hath shown the way,
walk ye therein.
For He gave Himself, when there was the material ability to have
prevented same. Thus ye may offer thyself when there is the ability
to refuse; that others may know that Jesus Is the Christ, the Son,
the Brother of those who seek to know God's way among men.
Life then is
purposeful. What is life?
It is a manifestation of a soul. Remember that self is body, mind
and soul. As the soul would know, does know, it is the gift of the
Creator, the Maker. The purpose in life, then, is not the gratifying
of appetites nor of any selfish desires, but it is that the entity,
the soul, may make the earth, where the entity finds its
consciousness, a better place in which to live.
If there is not lost sight of the fact that what ye do shall be to
the glory of thy Maker and not of self or of any particular group.
The benefits that may be derived should be for the common good of
all and not for the gratifying of any emotion of the body, or even
of the mind, unless mind is in accord with the divine.
Analyze these. These are truths, and truth is truth wherever ye find
it. To be sure it must find a response within self, else to the
individual it is a theory or an idea. Yet that just given the entity
will find, if it searches itself and analyzes its purposes, its
ideals, its hopes, it doubts, its fears. And ye can do something
For know that ye are in the present experience, in the present
environ, in the present years of thy activity more productive, more
far-reaching in the influence ye have, in the opportunity that ye
will have for making the earth a better place to live in for those
And remember you'll be back again! What do you want it to look like?
You have a greater opportunity at the present time than you will
have at any other period of this particular sojourn.
So you'd better be up and doing, keeping self in accord with God's
laws. For remember, God is not mocked and whatsoever a man soweth
that must he also reap, spiritually, mentally and materially. For
the law of the Lord is perfect. It will convert the soul if ye seek
to know that law in thy experience.
For, what the entity is today is the Result of what it has been in
days and experiences and ages and eons past. For, life is
continuous; and whether it is manifested in materiality or in the
realm of an individuality alone, it is one and the same. And it is
brought into being that it might be one with its Maker.
Source of all life
From whence? The source of all life, and life in every form, whether
it be in the vapour, the chemical motivative force as accredited to
the vegetable, mineral or even the animal kingdom, is of one source,
Make thyself, then, put thyself, be thyself, in companionship with
Creative Forces. For the purpose is that each soul should be a
co-creator with God.
Know that life and mind are
Regardless of whether the choice is
to act in this or that manner in relationships to same because of
the expedience of this or that, these are Facts! Just as the
existence is a fact; for it Is! Know in what ye believe, then, as
thy ideal. Know Who is the author of that ideal. Not merely an
idealistic ideal that may not be attained, either mentally or
materially; but know that each ideal is constructive and is of a
For As the mind and the life are a part of the eternal
consciousness, then Only constructive thought And activity may Make
for the better physical as well as Mental development! The body is
physical, mental and spiritual. These are one, and they manifest in
materiality through the activities of the body-mental, and the
body-physical. But if the body is fed only upon that which is
temporal in its concept, in its activity, then it Must of itself
become a burden sooner or later. For only that which is good, that
which is constructive, that which is true, that which is spiritual,
Can live, or Does live On and On!
Light Of The World
In the desires of self, as relationships to others and for purposes,
causes, as will bring into the lives of others the consciousness of
the indwelling of the divine that may be applied In the Activities
of individuals' affairs - keep self in that at-onement that comes
through oft communing with the divine from within; for to him that
hath much, much of him is required; to him that lacketh in
understanding, stand fast and sure in the faith of the fathers. Let
him that Thinketh he standeth take heed lest he fall; for in Him Is
light, and the light is the light of the world. Naught may destroy
that as is Founded in Him.
For the life is the whole life, even as the Master gave that He was
the life and the light of the world. For in Him is light, as has
been given, and the light is the light of the world. Be then, thou,
the torch or light bearer for those that sit in darkness.
"Who shall ascend into heaven to bring down a message to me?" or
"Who shall descend into hell to bring up one to me?" Answer from
that in thine Own heart. Prepare thy ways. Make the paths straight.
Seek the Lord when He may be found, for in Him is Life, and the Life
is the Light of the World. Be not a willy-nilly, nor a shilly-shally
one in mental or physical action. Seek the ways that are His, and
all else shall be added unto thee.
Preserve the universality of Love as was and is presented by those
who seek the way through Him, who is the light of the world!
For He alone has overcome the world, and such must be kept. While
there may be many signposts, many roads, many roads that lead to the
Cross, the Cross is that through which All gain the greater concept
of the purpose of life's expression with human souls endeavouring to
seek the light. They had you lost" but in Him is the Light, and the
Light is the Light of the World.
"The silver and gold is mine, saith the Lord", and when one puts
self in that position to be in keeping with those first tenets,
there is brought that promise to bear on those who so follow Him.
Then, make thy paths straight, serve mankind - not Favour man, but
Serve man, in that capacity as has been given, through the entity's
experience in present and in past, and so bring to self that as is
the merited by such service, for in Him is light, and the light is
the light of the world, and shineth unto those that sit in darkness,
whether in worry of mind, of body, of means, or what not, for the
Will, Will be done, and man's conception of the Creative Energy is
that which is served.
"In youth seek the Lord, and when thou art old thou will not depart
from Him," for in Him is life, and the light is the light of the
world, for seeking Him, having Him in the heart and the mind, all
else will be added unto thee, for the world and that therein is His,
and to be one with Him is to be the co-laborer with the Creator. To
be otherwise is to set self in that position of being at-variance
For heaven and earth must pass away, but my word Shall Not, saith
Self must meet all in the light of the trust and the hope that is
put in Him who can make the crooked paths straight, for "Narrow and
straight is the way that leads to life everlasting, and broad and
crooked is the way that leads to self's own destruction!" Then Know
in whom, in what, thou hast believed, and Believing, in faith,
give that in His keeping, and there will come, that even through and
by the way of the Cross is the light of His countenance made
manifest in thine own life and existence; for in Him is life, and
light, and He is the light of the world. In Him is no darkness at
all! Leave all in His hands, for He Has appointed the way. Choose
thou whom ye will serve. Those things that would make afraid, or
those that satisfy for the moment, or those that build and build in
the heart and soul to Life everlasting in Him.
Take self in hand, then. Consider the ways of man. Consider the ways
of the well being of the mental, the spiritual, and the physical
man, applying same to the body physical, to the body mental, to the
body spiritual, that the emanations from same may be holy and in
keeping with that oneness of purpose as has been set before the body
for the enlightenment of the world; for unto men through this being
comes that light that is to shine unto the dark places, that the Son
may be known of men as the Disseminator of darkness in the lives of
individuals, for through Him comes the light of the world, in that
the Son gave of self that men might know there is the God in Israel
as speaks to men through self in the way that brings joy, peace,
understanding, to all peoples.
Then keep that of the Nazarene and Galilean history before self, and
bring to others that knowledge that in the giving of self to service
is the highest service to the Creative Energy, or God, for in Him
is the light, and the light is the light of the world; for, as He
became the Son through the manner of the experience in the earth's
plane, so may we, as sons, become brothers and heirs to that
Ye know in Whom ye have believed, and that He is able to deliver
thee from the bonds in the flesh. For who healeth thy diseases? Who
keepeth thy mind, thy body in the more perfect accord? The giver of
all good and perfect gifts. He who is, who was, who will ever be the
light of the world to those who seek His face. He will not turn His
In the study, forsake not, of course, the true way and light. As is
given from the beginning: God said, "Let there be light" and there
was light, and that light became, and is the light of the world. For
it is true that light, that knowledge, the understanding of that
Jesus who became the Christ, is indeed thy elder brother and yet
Creator, Maker of the universe; and thus are ye a part of same and a
Then, as ye practice His principles ye become aware of same. And
these are first: "Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy
heart, thy mind, thy soul, and thy neighbour as thyself."
Study then, also the 14, 15, 16 and 17 of John as it speaks
to thee, and as to how ye may apply thyself in the intuition, the
walks with divine influences. And it is with what spirit ye
entertain that ye measure that kind of helpfulness to thy Maker. Do
what thou doest intuitionally, or as the spirit moves thee.
Like begets like
By the correct vibration in self. Like begets like. Toned to a tone
brings the proper tone from the perfect radiation of such. Each
entity Radiates that tone, that reflection of the concept of its
creative force. Each entity, each atom of the entity, radiates that
vibration to which it attunes itself. Each entity contacts, each
entity brings that about itself by putting into action laws, those
conditions, those individuals, those vibrations that are necessary
for its own development.
Hence when thou prayest enter into thine closet, or into thine self,
and thine Father that see-eth in secret shall reward thee openly.
When thou attunes thine self to those vibrations, those necessary
developments of thine own soul, the rewards are as that given, the
end of that vibrated, for they are one. And while secularly or
materially these may seem far afield, yet even unto the ends of the
earth, even unto the beginning and end of time, the vibration, the
truth of those forces of the creative energy are one, and attuned, these bring those of the same attunement, for All are of One
Spirit, and the various variations are those creations as sparks are
of that which set same in motion, for all are a portion of that
first Creative Energy God.
Live-a-day, yet it is the basis of
peace, of joy, of happiness, which may make this life worth while.
There is the fault in the flesh of not housing the soul, by the
abuse of the body. If there is the feeding of the body that the soul
may find the greater expression by the
activities of the mental mind, the soul and spiritual mind may have
the greater opportunities to express itself.
For, as has been given in that command with the promise: "Honour thy
father, thy mother, that thy days may be long in the land which the
Lord, thy God giveth thee." Who is thy father? Who is thy mother?
They that do the will of thy Father in heaven; they that do that
which makes for the glorifying, the purifying, of the lives, the
associations of one with another.
These as ye honour in thine activity with thy fellow man, ye bring
not only that which renews thy strength in thy days in the earth but
bring or give to thy fellow man that opportunity for the awakening
to those influences from within that may make Them aware also of
Their relationship to their God.
Be moderate in all
things; not to excess in any, and we'll have the 150 years of
expectancy in this experience, if ye live to deserve it. But what
can you give to others?
Unless you have something to give, what right have you to be in the
way of others? Have something to give; you may live as long as ye
The Lord thy God is One
For, All that ever was and ever is to be learned is that: "The Lord
thy God is One, One." No matter in what clime, under what name, all
must come to that as was from the beginning. For, know that He, who
was lifted up on the Cross in Calvary, was also that Son in the
land of the setting sun; also he that first walked among men at the
beginning of man's advent into flesh! For He indeed was and is the
first Adam, the last Adam; that is The Way, The Truth, The Light!
To become aware is also to gain. For those that have lost their way,
even as the Master gave with the 99%, all might be left to seek the
one. And the joyousness in the finding, not in the loss, should be
Then analyse that, reading in connection with same all of the story
of Ruth as to her sincerity. And if it needs to be, those
companionships may be drawn from thine own activities, and the fear
of what may be in the future will fade as the mists before the
For in the study of these, not merely read to know them, but get the
meaning of universal love, not attempting to make it personal but
universal. For God is love and, as ye go about to manifest same in
thy conversation, ye may find the true meaning of love. Let love be
abroad, in thy mind, in thy understanding. For the Lord hath looked
on thee and loved thee, and hath shown thee the way. Harken to His
voice: "Be not afraid, it is I that would speak to thee and thy
heart." Love the Lord. Love His ways. Be patient, be understanding,
and He will bring it to pass in thy consciousness of His walking and
talking with thee. The beauties of water, the loveliness of clouds
in the sky, of the storm, the snow, the sleet, the hail. All of
these speak to the individual of the closeness, the loveliness of
the Master's promises to the children of men. Keep ever faithful to
that, of the beauty that is wrought even from the contemplation.
Again and again, read the different versions proclaimed by Matthew,
Mark and John as to what those passages mean to man.
Love of the Christ
Let the love of the
Christ, that is manifested in the hearts of the children of men, by
thy guide, by thy spirit, be thy place in thy dealings with thy
fellow man. For His peace, His joy, His love abides with thee. Sing
ye the new song that He will put into thine heart as thou goest
about Doing good. For by this ye shall be judged: "As ye did it unto
the least of my brethren, ye did it unto me!" Thou canst not know
the love, save thou showest it.
What is the Law of Love?
Giving. As is given in this injunction: "Love Thy Neighbour as
Thyself." As is given in the injunction: "Love the Lord Thy God with
all Thine Heart, Thine Soul and Thine Body." In this, as in many, we
see upon the physical or earth or material plane the manifestations
of that law, without the law itself. With any condition we find as
this, which is the manifestation of the opposite from law of love.
The gift, the giving, with hope of reward or pay is direct
opposition of the law of love. Remember there is no greater than the
injunction, "God so loved His Creation, or the World, as to give His
Only Begotten Son, for their redemption." Through that love, as man
makes it manifest in his own heart and life, does it reach that law,
and in compliance of A Law, the law becomes a part of the
individual. That is the Law of Love. Giving in action, without the
force felt, expressed, manifested, shown, desired or reward for that
given. Not that the law of love does away with other laws, but makes
The Law of Recompense, The Law of Faith, The Law of Divine, with the
law of Earth Forces, if you please, of effect, not defective, but of
So we have Love is Law, Law Is Love. God Is Love. Love Is God. In
that we see the law manifested, not the law itself. Unto the
individual, as we have given then, that gets the understanding of
self, becomes a part of this. As is found, which come in one, so we
have manifestations of the one-ness, of the all-ness in love. Now,
if we, as individuals, upon the earth plane, have all of the other
elementary forces that make to the bettering of life, and have not
love we are as nothing, nothing. "Though one may have the gift of
prophesy, so as to give great understanding, even of the graces in
Hope, in Charity, in Faith, and has not the law of love in their
heart, soul, mind and though they give their body to give itself for
manifesting even these graces, and has not love they are nothing."
In many, many ways may the manifestations of the law of love be
shown, but without the greater love, even as the Father giveth, even
as the soul giveth, there is no understanding, and no compliance of
the forces that make our later law to this, of effect.
For man is made a co-creator with the Godhead.
Not that man is good or bad according to the position of the stars,
but the position of the stars brings what an individual entity has
done about God's plan into the earth activities during those
individual periods when man has the opportunity to enter or come
into material manifestations.
Man may not live by bread alone. Man may not live by the gratifying
of appetites in the material world. For man is not made for this
world alone. There is a longing for those experiences which the
And without spirituality the earth is indeed a hell, an individual
soul do what it will or may. Such longing may not be gratified from
without or in the consciousness of, and the experiences that pertain
to, the forces and influences without self. For the body is indeed
the temple of the living God. Act like it! Keep it clean.
Don't desecrate it ever, but keep it such that it may be the place
where you would meet thine own better self, thine own God-self. As
ye do this, there may be brought harmony, peace, joy. As in
everything else, if ye would have joy ye must make others happy!
Bring joy to others. If ye would have love, ye must show thyself
lovely! If ye would have friends, show thyself friendly! If ye would
know God, search for Him, for He is within thine own self!
And as ye express Him in the fruits of spirit; love, grace, mercy,
peace, longsuffering, patience, kindness, gentleness; ye will find
such within thyself. For if ye would have life indeed (and life is
the manifestation of God) ye must give it. For the manner in which
ye treat thy fellow man is the manner in which ye treat thy Maker.
This is the source of life, the source of love, the source of peace,
the source of harmony, and as ye give expression to same, it may
come indeed to thee.
In the application, then, know thyself, thy ideals, thy purposes.
Then study to show thyself approved unto God, condemning no one, for
with what judgment ye mete, it is measured to thee. Ye cannot judge
others harshly and not expect to be judged harshly. Ye cannot do
evil that good may come. For each tree, each body, each life is
known by the fruits it bears within itself.
There should be sought as to whether the relationships between those
of opposite sex are for a united, cooperative service to a living
God and of a spiritual prompting, or are they prompted by material
If they are prompted by that which has so oft been true, as of
convenience, or for only the beauty of the body or of the
companionship physical, these must become palls one upon the other.
Then the standard would be as He hath given: There must be the
Answering within each that their Spiritual and Mental desires are
One! For the Lord thy God is One. Ye cannot serve God and mammon.
Would it be well to seek marriage in this life
This may come of itself, but control those influences. It will come
through one ye meet in thy activity. If ye choose not the activity,
it will not come.
Again it must be the choice within self. If it is for
self-gratification, for self-security, know that they who would have
life must give it! they who would be secured must make security for
others, in the mental and spiritual sense! For these are the
outgrowth, not things to be sought within themselves alone!
Each Giving, Each Taking
First, as in making then the application of same, we see that in
their development they have ideas individually; yet basically,
centrally, their Ideals are one. As they each make their individual
application of that which motivates their influences in giving
expression of these, patience, persistence, consistency must be the
basic influence, the basic truth, the basic force that would make
for that which would make or bring into the experience of each, not
what is ordinarily termed as development "down the road of life
together" but rather Up the road, back to those influences and
imports towards the light.
Each giving, each taking; each realizing the whole necessity of
their making their expressions to be compatible with the purposes
not of self, not of self-glorification, not for self-indulgences,
not for self-aggrandizements that they may be in any instance just
well-spoken of by others; but rather that the glory of the Lord,
that the purposes which have prompted the heart of each, may be
manifested. And this means first Tolerance as one to another.
There is the realization in the Experiences materially of each of
the shortcomings here and there. Yet Self must be effaced as to any
conditions that make for fear, that would unseat the principles
How, then, is asked, can these be made more and more compatible in
their activities? Realizing the short-comings in each, how may they
be made as a union of purposes in such measures, in such manners
that they Become then as one in their expression?
Show forth in thine Own life, each as one preferring the other! How
hath He given? Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart,
thy mind, thy soul, thy body; and thy neighbour, thy brother, as
thyself. Patience, kindness, gentleness, longsuffering, brotherly
love. These manifest in thy relationships with thy companion.
Unity in matrimony
Let each know that those things that are before thee are of the
Lord, not of thyself; that the strength of either may be but Helping
as one to another. And ye will find, let others say as they may, let
others do as they wish, but "As for us, 'As for me, as for my
house', we will serve a living God," by the gentleness, by the
kindness, by the patience, by the long-suffering to the sons of men.
Let God give the increase. For the earth is the Lord's and the
fullness thereof. And we, and ye as His children, live the life, in
Oneness of purpose to those measures that through thy hands, through
thy associations, through thy love as one for another in Him, ye may
be the means, the channel, through which others may know the living
God. Living each Your life, to be sure, but in Him, in His ways.
In making the application, do so in a union of purpose for the glory
of God and not for self! Be as a helper one to the other, being as a
complement. When one is distraught, hold the other in love, in
compassion. When one is disturbed, each should become more and more
at oneness of purpose.
Love the Lord, eschew evil.
Do not find faults nor look for
faults in either. Not that they do not exist, and that thou art not
conscious of same; but more and more become conscious of the beauty
in each. And we will find happiness, joy. Sorrow, hardships, yes; but glory
rather that these make for a New Day, a new opportunity for each to
be the stay as for the other in Their seeking as one to be a channel
of blessings to others. And as two souls come in a union of
purpose, not a gratifying of earth, not a gratifying of the earthly
impulses and desires but that they, too, may be used as channels
through which souls may enter, there may be brought into the earth
those that may quicken. For all must be lifted up even as He. But
through the natural, the unnatural means as He entered, all become
then in that purpose, in that oneness as the natural way, the
For, in the physical as from the mental, with what measure ye mete
it is measured to thee again.
Properties or Herbs
Then the motivative element may be within the attributes of nature
itself, whether it be through mechanical applications or medicinal
properties or herbs. Whose herbs are they? Whose force or power is
used? They are One!
And what is the first law? Know, O Israel, know, O Self, know, O
Seeker of light, that all power and force of good and construction,
and of constructive forces, emanates only from the One Source! This
is only saying the same in those words as convey the meaning, to
what? That consciousness of the arousing to the something within, as
to the motivative forces that may impel or be acted upon within the
Meditation is helpful to You and to Others
In the mind of many there is little or no difference between
meditation and prayer. There are many that care not whether there be
such things as meditation, but depend upon someone else to do their
thing, or are satisfied to allow circumstance to take its course:
and hope that sometime, somewhere, conditions and circumstances will
adjust themselves to such a way that the best that may be will be
Ye all find yourselves confused at times respecting from whence ye
came and whither ye goeth. Ye find yourselves with bodies, with
minds, not all beautiful, not all clean, not all pure in thine own
sight or in thy neighbour's. And there are many who care more for
the outward appearance than that which prompts the heart in its
activity or in its seeking.
But, ye ask, what has this to do with Meditation?
It is not musing, not daydreaming; but as ye find your bodies made
up of the physical, mental and spiritual, it is the attuning of the
mental body and the physical body to its spiritual source. Many say
that ye have no consciousness of having a soul.
Yet the very fact that ye hope, that ye have a desire for better
things, the very fact that ye are able to be sorry or glad,
indicates an activity of the mind that takes hold upon something
that is not temporal in its nature, something that passeth not away
with the last breath that is drawn but that takes hold upon the very
sources of its beginning, the Soul, that which was made in the
image of thy Maker, not thy body, no, not thy mind, but thy Soul
was in the image of thy Creator.
What Is Meditation?
Then, it is the attuning of thy physical and mental attributes
seeking to know the relationships to the Maker. That is true
meditation. How do you accomplish same? How would ye as an
individual go about learning to meditate? For, ye must learn to
meditate, just as ye have learned to walk, to talk, to do any of the
physical attributes of thy mind as compared to the relationships
with the facts, the attitudes, the conditions, the environs of thy
Then, there must be a conscious contact with that which is a part of
thy body-physical, thy body-mental, to thy soul-body or thy
The names indicate that ye have given it metes and bounds, while the
soul is boundless, and is represented by many means or measures or
manners in the expressions in the mind of each of you.
But there are physical contacts which the anatomist finds not, or
those who would look for imaginations or the minds. Yet it is found
that within the body there are channels, there are ducts, there are
glands, there are activities that perform no one knows what, in a
living, Moving, thinking being. In many individuals such become
dormant. Many have become atrophied. In the mental
applications of the body, keep in that same attitude of expressions,
in specifically entering into the inner consciousness through those
periods of mediation, where there may be more and more that meeting,
that coordinating of the influences from within to the Creative
Forces that make for energizing of the mental abilities as related
to creative energies, and finds expressions in the activities to and
through its relations to the fellow man.
These will make for those great periods of relaxation from the
mental energies that are used from the physical forces of the body.
These will make for the strengthening of the spiritual attributes
that manifest in the experience of every individual. And more and
more does harmony in the physical forces, harmony in the mental
application, come in such ways and manners as to bring the greater
forces, the greater influences for constructive activity of the
body, the mind, the soul. The Correcting of the
vibrations within self will make for much greater harmonious
influences in the surroundings. But if the inner self receives the
answer through its own meditative forces, it is better than to say
through these sources that this or that environ would be the best.
If with the entering into self, Physically, the answer is that it
would be better, that is, get the answer from the mental attitude of
self, Yes or No. Then enter into the meditative forces and ask, Is
the answer as received in self Yes or No? And this coordinating will
be the correct move.
Each soul-entity must depend upon the awakening from within more and
more. For His promises have been: "If ye will be my children, I will
be your God." Claim that relationship. Demand of Him that
recognition, and He fails Not!
Non-usage, non-activity! because only the desires of the appetite,
self-indulgences and such, have so glossed over or used up the
abilities in these directions that they become only wastes as it
were in the spiritual life of an individual who has so abused or
misused those abilities that have been given him for the greater
activity. Then, purify thy mind if ye would meditate.
Depending on what is thy concept of purification! Does it mean to
thee a mixing up with a lot of other things, or a setting aside of
self, a washing with water, a cleansing or purifying by fire or what
not? Whatever thy concept is, be True to thine inner self. Live that
choice ye make: Do It! Not merely say it but: Do It!
Purify thy Body
Shut thyself away from the cares of the world. Think on that as ye
would do to have thy God meet thee face to face. "Ah", ye say: "but
many are not able to speak to God!" Many, you say, are fearful.
Have ye gone so far astray that ye cannot approach Him who is all
merciful? He knows thy desires and thy needs, and can only supply
according to the purposes that ye would perform within thine own
Then, purify thy body, physically
Sanctify thy body, as the laws were given of old, for tomorrow the
Lord would speak with thee - as a father speaketh to his children.
Has God changed? Have ye wandered so far away? Know ye not that, as
He has given, "If ye will be my children, I will be thy God"? and
"Though ye wander far away, if ye will but call I will hear"?
If any of you say, "Yes, but it was spoken to those of old, we have
no part in such," then indeed ye have no part. They that would know
God, would know their own souls, would know how to meditate or to
talk with God, must believe that He Is, and that He rewards those
who seek to know and to do His biddings. That He gave of old is as
new today as it was in the beginning of man's relationship or
seeking to know the will of God, if ye will but call on Him Within thine inner Self! Know that thy body is the temple of the living
God. There He has promised to meet thee!
As ye have gathered through that meditating of mind, or in putting
self first in the channel of being a blessing, give active Words for
that that thou has received. This becoming a blessing to self
Through becoming a blessing to others. Seek to know His way, and "As
I am lifted up in thine consciousness, so will I be lifted in the
consciousness of others." Do not think in self
as to how ye may take advantage of someone else, or how ye may attain fame or glory. For these are thine own already. For if God be
with thee, who can be against thee? Art thou with Him? This ye ask and may ask and find within self.
For, as He has given, "If ye call I will hear." And He has promised
to meet thee within thine inner self.
Then in prayer, in meditation, in longing, in hoping, but in doing
the things and being the things in thine inner self ye hope for and
long for, these are the manners and the ways of approach, and of
overcoming those tendencies which arise in the emotions.
Not as one to be long-faced. For, the earth is the Lord's and the
fullness thereof, in Joy! Do not see the dark side too oft. Turn it
over, there's another side to every question. Cultivate in self
humour, wit. Ye enjoy it in others, others enjoy it in thee. But too
oft it becomes to thee foolishness. Know that thy Lord, thy God,
Laughed, even at the Cross. For He wept with those who wept, and
rejoiced with those who rejoiced.
By closing the eyes and meditating from within, so that there arises
(through that of the nerve system) that necessary elements that
makes along the Pineal (Don't forget that this runs from the toes to
the crown of the head!), that will quiet the whole nerve forces,
making for that, as has been given, as the True bread, the true
life itself. Quiet, meditation, for a half to a minute, will bring
strength, will the body [if the body will] see Physically this
flowing out to quiet self, whether walking, standing still, or
resting. Well, too, that Oft when alone Meditate in the silence.
That which ye would attain in the studies as to that which is a
text, a thesis or a theory, mull same as it were in thy mind, in
thy consciousness. Then lay it aside, and meditate rather upon its
application in every way and manner. Do this especially just before
ye would rest in physical consciousness, or from physical
consciousness, or in sleep. And ye will find thy memory, thy
ability to analyze, thy ability to maintain and retain greater
principles will be thy experience.
For remember that the principle is throughout physical, mental and
spiritual alike. For thy body is physical, mental and spiritual.
Each phase of same has its individual attributes, but All, and that
alone that is eternal, is spiritual in its essence.
Hence in the physical application ye pass to, through the physical
eye, or through the ear, or through the sense of consciousness, that
as of a physical law, or as a physical thesis, as a physical theory.
This ye pass for judgment to thy mental consciousness, and in the
laying aside of thy physical consciousness the spiritual attributes
record same as it were upon thy real self.
Turn to that which is in the hearts and minds, and that Builds Souls
in the sight of the living God! Mercy! He that would have friends,
Show himself friendly; he that would know God, Be god to someone, by
just being Kind, just showing brotherly love. For these things, as
given, have their seed within. And it is God that giveth the
And, as has been given by the law-giver of old, think not who will
descend from heaven to bring you a message; for, Lo, it is already
in thine own heart. It is thyself, thy inner self, thy soul self.
Think not who will come from over the waters, nor over the seas to
bring a message, for it is with thee already. There is no greater word than can
be proclaimed in the simple message:
"Jesus, the Christ, careth for thee!"
Let every individual hear and know that in their individual
experience and they will find help. For ye sow the seed, God giveth
the increase, in and through the spirit. For: "If I go away, I will
send the Holy Spirit and He will guide you into all righteousness."
This is thy message.
The Mind of man is divided for the understanding into the conscious,
physical conscious, the subconscious or under-conscious, or
unconscious conscious, and the super or the soul conscious of the
individual entity. For mind is the builder. This keep ever before thee, the attitude
of mind. If you expect to make a failure who else is going to expect
you to succeed? It must be within yourself. For as has been
indicated, think not who will come from heaven or who will come from
over the seas to tell you, but know it is within thine own heart,
thine own conscience. For thy body is indeed the temple of the
And if ye choose Him, His Son as thy companion, as thy ideal, if He
be with thee, who can be against thee? And what does it matter if
they are! They are naught! For with Him all things were made
possible that have come into material experience, whether in mind,
in gas, in matter or materiality. All come through the knowledge
that is in Him.
Thus as you associate with Him, as ye associate ideas and ideals
with Him, ye grow in grace, in knowledge, in understanding.
And as He has given: "In all thy getting, my Son, get
understanding." This is putting proper emphasis in the proper
places, and do not become sidetracked by things that would pertain
to material or spiritual alone, or things of the body or things of
the heavenly force.
For you grow to heaven, you don't go to heaven. It is within thine
own conscience that ye grow there. For there first must come peace
and harmony within thy purpose, thy ideal, thy hopes, thy desires.
Thy wishes even must be in harmony with thy ideal if you would make
the experience in the earth of value to thee.
For how does one Cleanse the Mind
By the pouring out, the forgetting, the laying aside of those things
that easily beset and Filling same with pure, fresh water that is of
the eternal life, that is of the eternal goodness as may be found in
Him who Is the Light, the Way, the Truth, the Vine, the bread of
life and the water of life. These things are those influences that
Then, wherein does
the mind function
To use that thou hast in hand! What need is there for a better body,
save to serve thy fellow man the better? For he that is the greatest
among you is the servant of all. This is not only referring to those
who teach, to those who minister, to those who wait on this, that or
the other influence, but to each and every soul, and to every phase
of the soul's activity in a material world!
Then, as to body and to mind both, purify same, cleanse same in the
light of those things that He has given, for He is the way, He is
Practice then in thy daily experience, and thy associations with thy
fellow man, charity to all, love to all; finding fault with none;
being patient with all, showing brotherly love and brotherly
kindness. Against these there Is no law! And ye who have put on and
as ye put on these, by the application of them in thy dealings with
thy fellow man, ye become free of the laws that are of body or of
mind; for ye are then conscious of being one With the Creative
Forces that bring into the experience and consciousness of all the
love of the Father for the children of men.
And it is only as ye deal with thy fellow-man that ye show forth His
love. For as ye do it unto the least of these, thy brethren, ye do
it unto thy Maker.
That that as is given to those that would seek through these lessons
in a Practical religion in action; for as thine part in the ministry
to the Master was as of the practical things of life, so in the
lessons these must be Living words, that they may touch the hearts,
the minds, the souls of others. In thine ministry, then, see that
each line, each thought, is a Practical thing, Living, having its
being, in Him.
Keep, then, the faith that thou hast builded in many; not as thine
Own, but as unto the glorifying of the Creative Forces that may
manifest in a material world. Attract others, give them something of
a spiritual import that makes their lives better, Thinking better,
hoping better, looking for the better, not materially but in the
high mental forces. Do not lower thy standards! Ye jump to
conclusions, ye expect many to follow suddenly. They are not capable
of doing so. It is little by little, line upon line, here a little,
there a little. Give expression each day, in each association, in
each activity, in such a way that ye bring hope, faith, the seeking
of the better in self that is in others. This is done by the smile,
the cheery word, the better expression of minimizing the faults and
magnifying the virtues in all. For, it behooves none of us to speak
unkindly of the worst of us, no matter how little, mean or
unthoughted. For, the good, the image of the Maker, is there.
Realize this, and ye can build that in thy interpretation, in thy
music, in thy song, in thy writing, in thy home. Thy duty is to
minister, even as He when the ten unclean sought and said: "Thou son
of David, have mercy on us!" And from afar He lifted up His voice:
"Go show thyselves to the priest, Thou knowest the Law, and Be Thou
Clean!" Only one Thanked Him! Give thou, then, as He, the love, the
faith, the hope, into the keeping of those that cry. But not all
that cry will answer, but as many as He shall Quicken. All in their
time, yes; but their day, their experience must be met. For He
stands ever and cries: "Whosoever Will may take of the water of life
and be Healed."
In ministering to the needs of others, may the greater service
and greater outlet for the activities be made
Through those periods of ministry to others in the activities as a
teacher, direct in the channels and manners indicated, if you would
build for the best in self and for greater creative forces in the
experiences of others.
In such periods build also such that the faith of thy fathers may be
kept intact; for the Lord thy God is One. Thy activities and
experiences each day, then, are opportunities to Unify purposes to
the glory of God; not to justify self by any, but to glorify all to
thy Maker. Know That The Lord They God Is One
What has ever been the call to those who have put their trust in the
Creative Forces, the spiritual activities? Those things that make
for "I will!" The Lord hath called ever: "Use that thou hast in
Hand!" And Then that as necessary for the next step is given thee.
Then what hast thou purposed in thine heart and mind and soul to do? Strength and power be
with thee. Be not unmindful that thou shalt keep thine own garments
white in the blood of the Lamb. For, would ye know the truth, the
truth will make thee more and more humble; yet more and more proud
that thou art counted worthy to be the servant, the messenger, the
minister for a living God. He will abide with thee, and guide and
direct, if thou wilt but open the ways. And may it ever be shot through
with that principle, not how little, but how much may I do in
service to Him. Many will come for counsel, for advice; for those
ways in which there may be help to the young, help to the
developing, help to the expectant ones, help to those who are
disturbed in body, in mind, and in the fields of separations of the
not seen. The greater gain, the greater promise, the greater
satisfaction, the greater hope comes in its ministering to others;
not in the way of an overflow of sympathy, not in the way of
laudation of any particular activity, but the encouragings here, the
aiding there, in encouraging words, encouraging deeds, that they
press on. This is the purpose that one may find in giving its
comfort, in giving the cheery word, in giving the lessons to those
in all walks of life. Fulfil thy purpose in thy relationship to thy
Maker, not to any individual, not to any group, not to any
organization, not to any activity outside of self than to thy
Creator! For it is the reflection of Him. In the present there are
the abilities to contribute to welfare work, to be an aid in
visiting those who are sick or shut-in, and in not distributing
tracts but in telling that which ye have heard, and telling others
that they may experience it themselves. And be kind to children.
Study to show thyself approved unto God, a workman not ashamed,
rightly divining the words of truth, keeping self unspotted from the
world. Not a little bit might be added, yet that ye may best do is
among those in thine own home, in thine own household. For there are
those there who may become means of help to many. Let thy yeas be
yea and thy nays be nay. But do keep thy wit, do be able to cry, but
be most able to laugh. Open thy heart to God, surrounding self with
the consciousness of the promises of the Christ:
"If ye love me, ye will keep my
commandments, and I and the Father will come and abide with thee."
- John 14:15-16
And as this is felt and spoken in
body, in mind, visualize the coming of the Christ as He spoke in the
day by the sea.
Telling of The Love of Christ
Have you prayed to God today? Men won't follow you; men won't think
you are an easy mark. Mean it, for in that manner ye may teach many
a man with evil intents to know his place. For remember, no one, no
one can stand in the presence of the Lord, the Christ, when words
are thus spoken in earnest and in sincerity, no matter what their
intent may be, and you will attract those with whom ye may
administer much. But in thy activities ever be the teacher of the
simplicity of the Christ-child, his birth, his education, his
ministry and, as the climax the last acts for ministry with his
Disciples: "Who would be the greatest among you? He who is the
servant of all." When you find individuals too good to do this, or
that, for others, something is the matter with their theories, and
the soul is shrinking, they are little. Remember what was said of
him who was the greatest of men born of woman, that he was the least
in the kingdom of heaven, for he forgot to be humble and meek. And
they who are the servants for the Christ's sake to others, make
their own rules in all the activities or associations with others.
Great periods of joy, and greater appreciation of beauty, love, hope
and joy and of knowing that self is in attune with the divine. "Have
ye prayed today? Are ye living according to that prayer? Are ye
being consistent with the way ye pray? Who is thy God?" For the
world is in need of the message that Michael may give. Let those
things that thou knowest be done in meekness and in truth, that the
Christ Consciousness may be made more aware in the experience of
those thou would aid. For, in all things God gives the increase,
through the power of the Christ name, as His promises unto the sons
of men. Then, making self a channel, practice and preach, but
practice twice to what you preach once. Learn to apply spiritual
laws to material activities, just as many an individual soul may in
a song find God and never in a flower, and yet in both are the
colour, the tone, those influences as apply to the nature, to the
inmost expression of the soul, and then finding same. Let thy light
so shine, day by day, that ye fail not in that standard thou hast
set to thyself. Do not expect others to measure all at once. For,
thou art high indeed in thy ideals. Do not lessen them, but let thy
prayer be daily: “Lord, Here Am I, Thy Servant, Seeking To Be A
Greater Expression Of Thee Among My Fellow Men. Show Me The Way, O
Lord. Help Me To Be Humble, Yet Glorify Thee.”
How to Minister?
By precept and by example with the spirit of the cause or purpose of
the Christ-Consciousness. Know that as ye open the way, sow the seed
in activity and in word, ye are to leave the rest with God. Ye
cannot force, ye can only feed, ye can only plant, ye can only
cultivate. God gives the increase. First, study to show thyself
approved unto thy consciousness of the indwelling of God in Christ
in thee; rightly divining (and dividing) the words of truth, putting
proper evaluation upon the experiences in the activities of
individuals and groups; keeping self unspotted from that which ye
would question in another. Minister to those in many places;
gentleness, kindness, patience. For in patience ye become aware of
thy relationship to Patience as shown by thy Saviour, with a world
that might have been eradicated by only a word, yet He wept, rather
than found fault. Do thou likewise. Weep with those that weep;
rejoice with those that do rejoice; for in humbleness, in patience,
ye may find thy true relationship to thy fellow man; and in thy
ministry to thy brethren, to thy neighbours, yea to thy enemies, ye
show forth thy concept, ye show forth the love ye have of thy Lord
till He comes again! Listening to the voice within. Do not preach!
Do teach! Do minister, do lecture to men everywhere! Through the
provisions of those forces that were as in answer to a law: "If ye
call, I will hear, saith the Lord of hosts." Again, beware of that
which holdeth not wholly to the spirit of the Christ, as it may be
made manifest in the lives and the hearts of men everywhere. Impel
by precept and example, but not by might, nor find thou faults in
what others may believe. Only sow the seed of:
"My experience, my understanding is that His love made manifest
among men, as shown in the carpenter of Nazareth, is Alone the Way,
the Truth, the Light."
In teaching, ministering to others in all walks of life: "The Lord
is One!" These are channels: in writing, in teaching, in lecturing
in pouring out of self to others. Be not disheartened. Sow the seed.
God will give the increase.
Concerning the Lessons Given to Others
Whether that which has been given as lessons to others is to be
lived and exemplified in the lives of each individual. This first
must be determined to the best of Their ability. As individuals, as
members of the group seeking to be a channel of blessing to someone
else, will, with the help of those sources through which they have
received inspiration, help, aid, live their own lives in that way
and manner as they have asked others to do. Not of themselves; for,
as given of old, no soul can say that Christ is come of God, Save
the Holy Spirit convict him of that statement. And should one say
such and not live the Life that would exemplify that, then such an
one is condemning self already. So, in the experiences of each
individual Will accord their fellow members and their fellow man day
by day. This chosen, this desired, as has been manifested on the
part of those, some, to be sure, have been shirkers, some have been
jerkers; yet all have manifested that which is their own state,
phase or period of development. The help may be that, with the
living of that as individuals have given or have accepted. Say not:
"I didn't contribute that, so I don't have to live it!" Thou art a
portion of the whole, and what is thy first lesson? What is thine
last lesson? Do these not work one with another? Has not a full
cycle been completed? Be not as those that seek farther as curious,
or as wantonly. Remember Er, Uzzah and Malchus, how their curiosity
brought to them that period of night when that they had builded must
be accounted for. Then, when ye are ready, Say so! Grace, mercy and
truth be with thee as ye seek to bring the glad tidings of truth to
others in His name. For there be no other name under heaven whereby
Men in the earth may be saved. Let His love, His grace, His mercy be
sufficient unto thee. Be not anxious of the morrow, for He, thy
Lord, thy God, doth provide. Know thy Redeemer liveth, and is in and
with thee. Amen.
What seekest thou here?
Ye know the way, and in whom ye have believed; for He is ever with
thee as ye seek to bring a message of cheer and comfort and hope to
others. "In as much as ye do it unto the least of my brethren, ye do
it unto me." What Mercy, what graciousness ye wilt find if ye will
but Know that as ye do in His name ye lend unto thy Maker, and He
Will repay! Be not impatient. Be slow in thy judgment; for as ye
would have mercy shown, so be merciful. As others look to thee for
strength, for guidance in Him, in thine home, in thine life, in
thine meetings day by day, so be ye strong in Him. For to him whom
much is given, from him is much required; yet him that hath, to him
it Shall be given, and thou hast known His ways. Keep thine way
perfect, then, in thine walks, in thine talks with those that trust
in thee. For as thou dost represent the home, the way, the light to
many, so will He give His strength, His power, His grace, that Ye
may bear those burdens in the flesh in the way that He would have ye
go. For He will not leave thee comfortless, for He will guide thee
as ye walk day by day. Keep thy ways in the light of Him that has
promised to guide, guard and direct. Be not impatient. Be not other
than that thou wouldst have thy fellow man be unto thee. For as ye
speak of another, as ye speak To another, so will ye be spoken to;
for the seed ye sow will be Given the increase by the power of His
Word. So, sow the seed of joy, of love, of life, in the minds, in
the hearts of those thou meetest day by day. Let thy love for thy
Maker constrain thee in thy daily activities, for to thee hast been
entrusted that which may wreck, may make, thine own understanding.
Let the law of love, of mercy, of justice, that is shown in the law
of love and mercy, be thy guide day by day. For the Lord is not
slack in counting His mercy as men count slackness. And be patient
and be trustworthy, even to thine own soul. For the brighter day
dawns, and the star of hope to thee rises in those that ye show the
way and the light. Mercy, Mercy, for those that err; even as ye
would have mercy shown to thee! Let those things that would cause
thee to fear, to doubt, become the stepping-stones for those things
that have been promised in and through thee if thou wilt keep His
ways. Let justice and mercy, let Joy and harmony, let thine self be
the way; for "He that would be the greatest among you, he is servant
of all." Grace, mercy, peace, the love of the Father through the Son
abide with those that love His coming. Be patient, be Kind, be Just
in thine commentations, in thine activities to thy fellow man; for
only in such will ye find peace and harmony. For some cry Peace,
when they themselves become, through the condemnation of self in
others, that which is the stumbling-block to many. Make a joyful
noise unto the Lord for the mercies, the promises, the glories that
may be thine in the earth through the love thou may show unto thy
fellow man. As thou hast been strong in thine weakness, strength and
grace and power is given thee. For many are they (and the number
grows) who seek through thee to know more of the light and the way.
Be thou strong, then, in His power, that the blessings that He has
prepared for those that love His ways may be thy very own. Let not
doubt nor fear turn thee aside, for in His ways are the peace and
harmony and love that will bring this to come in thine own
Experience. They that love the Lord shall Prosper in the earth.
the Words of Christ, as it was given by the Master to the disciples,
as recorded in the Bible correct?
Rather should the seeker use that which Is given, as the Lord calls
on all to do. Make its purpose and its intent a portion of thine
self. For, there be many misinterpretations, poor translations, but
to find fault with that thou hast and not use same is to make
excuses that you haven't it as it was given. Art Thou on speaking
terms with thy Lord? If not, why not? Have that rather that He would
give thee, than from Any other source! When He gave: "As ye seek in
my name, that ye may have if ye believe," than act that way. He will
draw near unto thee if thou wilt thou draw near unto Him. Let thy
prayer be that He will ever show thee, direct thee, lead thee.
Mission on Earth
Then what is this that would be given thee today? Here is thy
lesson: Hear ye all! Beware lest ye as an individual soul, a son, a
daughter of God, fail in thy mission in the earth today; that those
ye know, those ye contact shall know the truth of God, not by thy
word, bombastic words, but in longsuffering, in patience, in
harmony, that ye create in thine own lives, for it must begin with
God has shown thee the pattern, even one Jesus, who became the
Christ that ye might have an advocate with the Father, for the
Father hath said: "In the day ye eat or use the knowledge for thine
own aggrandizement, ye shall die."
But he that had persuaded the spirit, the souls that God had brought
into being, to push into matter to gratify desire for
self-expression, self-indulgence, self-satisfaction, said "Ye shall
not surely die", or what were then the activities of man, for as had
been said: "A day is a thousand years, a thousand years as a day."
What was the length of life then? Nearly a thousand years. What is
your life today? May it not be just as He had given, just as He
indicated to those peoples, just as He did to the lawgiver, just as
He did to David, first from a thousand years to a hundred and
twenty, then to eighty? Why? The sin of man in his desire for
self-gratification. Each entity, as has been given, enters for an
experience that it may aid in the better, greater, or more Holy
expression of that which has been gained through the earthly
sojourns; or for the expression as a teacher or director to those
who may have lost their way. Thus, there are phases of the
experiences in the earth wherein the greater lessons, the greater
opportunities for contact with Truth, Life, Light and Comprehension,
may become a part of each individual. Then the individual may gain
this understanding: There is only gain in the application of
knowledge and understanding in its relationships to others. To know
of a thing, then, is not sufficient. To Know you know, and apply
same in the experience and relationships to others is worth while,
provided the application is such as to induce others to give
themselves in greater expression: of what? What, then, is life,
light and immortality? What is the hope of eternal life? What is the
assurance of the continuity of life? These are problems in the
experience of many, in not only the present sojourn but in many
sojourns in the earth. Then, let this be as an illustration, as a
demonstration, in the mental self: The Mind is the Builder, as it is
both spiritual and material, according to its application in the
associations with conditions, individuals or circumstance. But what
is the water of life? As has been indicated, things material are the
shadows of that which is spiritual in its essence. Now He gave: "I
am the breath of life, I am the water of life, he that drinks shall
never thirst." What meaneth this? How may it be put into words that
one may grasp the meaning of what it means for that Spirit of the
Christ, as manifested in Jesus, to be present as it were in a
million places, as ye say, at once? Now ye experience that H2O is
water, everywhere! Then water is water, and a part of the whole,
with all the essential elements that make for the ability of
manifestations in bringing life, in quenching the thirst. And it
becomes active thus in Whatever sphere or phase it finds itself;
whether in the frigid, as ice; in the temperate, as water; or in
that phase as steam. Yet Everywhere, in Every Phase, its activities
are the same! And it may be illustrated as shown; 3/4 of the earth,
3/4 of man, 3/4 of all matter, we find a composition of that which
He gave Is a manifestation of His presence, His force, His
influence! Then it may be understood as the individual entity grasps
that idea that it is as we deal, as we mete, as we measure to our
fellow man, that the water of life flows through us. Hence how
applicable becomes that as He gave: "He that gives a cup of water in
my name shall in no manner lose his reward!" Just as in the breath:
"I am the breath of life, the staff of life that is manifested."
Wherever, whenever it is manifested; whether it is as the grass that
is in the field today and in the flour tomorrow, and in the oven the
next! These Are the manifestations. So as the individual applies
these, though its attempts of application may be lowly, we find that
these very illustrations, these very demonstrations He used may
become applicable in the own experience today. For indeed we live,
we move, we have our being in the very forces that manifest in the
material world as individual conditions in matter and from which
each of these may have been drawn, All of the forces in materiality.
Hence as these are applied in those ways and manners that become a
part and parcel of the human experience, in the relationships to the
fellow man, we find them taking form in what? In those relationships
that become what has been so aptly illustrated or described as the
children or the fruit of the spirit; patience, longsuffering, love,
charity. These in ones relationships become as the breath of life to
the many; they become even as the water of life that is so fitly a
representation or manifestation of the life as He lived. Thus doth
the spirit bear witness with the Spirit of Life itself as manifested
through the Son, by the Father. For the glory of that is the
experience, if ye will seek for same in thy dealings, thy activities
with thy fellow man day by day. For ye had seen, ye had heard, ye
had known how He, Life Itself, Truth Itself, had so manifested in
the flesh as to bring that answer which gave hope, courage, to those
lives, hearts and bodies of men and women in every clime! Sought to
manifest that. Then who is to counsel with thee, save that as ye may
find within thine inner self? For His promises are sure. For as ye
sow the seeds of love, the seeds of patience, the seeds of
longsuffering, they must bear fruit! For the Giver of all good and
perfect gifts alone Can Bring the increase, can Quicken the heart,
can Quicken the spirit within to bring fruit! So thy purpose, then,
in thy associations with thy fellow man day by day in this
experience, this sojourn, is to sow the fruits of the spirit; and
trust in Him to quicken them that they may bear fruit in His glory,
in the name of the Father that doeth all things well. For He hath
not willed that any soul shall perish, but calls on thee, yea, thy
fellows, to be Active in the vineyard of the Lord; showing forth in
thy dealings with thy fellow man that ye have caught the vision,
that ye have known! As ye have, then, it behooves each soul, each
entity that has caught the vision, just to live, just to Act that
way! Ye have seen, ye have heard, yea ye have experienced oft many
like unto those that walked with Him, a little while they caught the
vision, yea struck out boldly, and because of the fear of the
billows of materiality, yea because of the very fear of what men
would say, yea for the very fear of the physical hurt that might
come, they sank even as Peter upon the sea that he loved, upon the
sea, yea the water that is that very life which would bear thee up
if ye will but hold to same! So as ye find in thy associations, in
thy relationships to thy fellow man day by day, ye must sow the
seed. Not being overanxious. For as has been given, only as many as
He may quicken may be drawn to the full understanding.
One may never tell a rose to be beautiful nor a violet to give off
its fragrance, nor yet a sunset or the storm or the wind to add
their voice to the songs of nature. Yet music and nature, and beauty
of all kinds, appeal much to this entity. Have you wondered why?
Have you used or abused such? These you must answer within self, as
you may in viewing the words of truth, the whiteness of the lily and
the voice of Him - who was attempting to give the lesson that our
whole trust is in God and not in the material things of the earth.
There should be the feeling for the own self, but
not unto the detriment of others. For, though He were the Son, He
took upon Himself the form of man, became as naught, subject to all
the trials, all the sorrows of thine own self. Then, what right has
any man to set state or nation above that principle of brotherly
love? But always "Render unto Caesar the things that are Caesar's
and unto God the things that are God's."
For, know the law "Know, O Israel,
the Lord thy God is One!" and that every form of manifestation, of
expression of the spirit of a time, of a place, of a condition, or
an individual, of a group, of a county, of a nation, Is the attempt
of that individual group or nation to give expression of self or its
God. What then is thy God? Is it material things, mental things, or
spiritual things, that have within themselves life, continuity,
stability, truth! The Lord God is One!
What nations of the earth today vibrate to those
things that they have and are creating in their own land, their own
environment? Look to the nations where the span of life has been
extended from 60 to 84 years. You will judge who is
serving God. These are judgements. These are the signs to those who
seek to know, who will study the heavens, who will analyze the
elements, who will know the heart of man, they that seek to know the
will of the Father for themselves answer: "Lord, here am I, use me,
send me where I am needed."
Groups and Family
The spirit alone keeps alive. The
material, that is of the earth-earthy, passes with the earth, yet
leaves its mark upon the individual entity, rather than upon a
group; though individuals are grouped as associates again because of
an urge of a complex or compound nature, or because of an universal
Thus the necessity for choosing the spiritual ideal, in relationship
to the Creative Forces; the First Cause, The First Premise or God.
Then, in the light of these, the individual may study, understand
and comprehend, as it meets or is associated with varied
For instance, the associations with a companion. Not that you each
think as the other, or that you both think alike, but you each are
the complement to the other in the material, the mental and the
spiritual aspirations and desires; not wholly the same, but
complementary one to the other.
He knoweth what we have need of before we have asked. In the asking,
in the seeking, as individuals, and intensified in cooperative
thought, cooperative intent, cooperative purpose, so do the
activities come to each in Their way.
How can God know the personal
needs of His countless children and work to fill these needs?
Just as illustrated in how that life as is manifested in the grain,
that is the breath of life, just as the water that quenches, the
water that is life itself, supplies. As the spirit of same is
manifested in the body, it becomes not only in the Personal manner
and way the supplying influence but that as from without, by: "Seek
and ye shall find," by attuning to same just as ye would attune thy
radio to the Great Station of life and God Himself! It supplies and
pours out to those that seek, seek, to know His ways!
Who Is my Neighbour, who Is my Brother?
They that seek to do the will Of that Creative Force that prompts
man in his relationships one to another to show forth that activity
that makes for the concept in the experiences of others that they,
too, may know the Lord; that He may be a portion also of their
For as thought is the father of the act in human endeavour, so do
dreams in the inmost forces of those that seek to know the way make
for the pattern and the manner and the way in which the activities
from one expression or manifestation of an entity or a soul become
related to another.
These, then, as they are held in the activity, bring to each in the
present application of self that which is, as it were, the basis,
the background; the basic effects that were created in the hearts
and souls of individuals that are now coming to bloom, coming to
seed. For as would be termed from those old influences that have
been the expression in man's experience ever, that we sow, that we
For the Father giveth the increase in the experiences of man, even
as is seen in those influences that rest the physical life in the
experience of man. Those that sow tares as an activity reap the
worries, the turmoils, the strifes that such cause in the experience
of man. Those that sow the good wheat that is as the staff of life,
upon which may be hung the ideals and hopes of man, Reap same in
their opportunities for being a channel through which the Glory of
the Son, of the Father, may be made in the earth.
In such measures, then, hath the entity gained in those experiences.
So again and again there comes, as in the very activities in the
present, that realization; not what one knows but what one does
About that one knows! For when the step is taken in those directions
in which He hath made His promises to the children of men, then the
next step is shown, is given. And though one may falter, yet as He
has given: "Ye may indeed lead, and lean heavily upon the arms of
The manner in which ye treat thy neighbour
For no matter what ye say, the
manner in which ye treat thy fellow man is the answer to what ye
really believe. For the manner in which ye treat thy neighbour is
the manner in which ye are treating thy Maker. And be not deceived,
God is not mocked; whatsoever a man soweth that must he also reap.
Then, kick not against the pricks, because ye are meeting thine own
When ye have righted thy mind to the correct thinking as to the
Creative Forces and what they may bring to thee, study Exodus 19:5
“Now therefore, if ye will obey my voice indeed, and keep my
covenant, then ye shall be a peculiar treasure unto me above all
people: for all the earth is mine”.
Know that it means you, You! Then pattern thy life in that manner.
Turn then to John 14, 15, 16, 17 and know that it is to thee He
speaks, not merely to those who were physically present. For the
earth is the Lord's and the fullness thereof, and without Him, the
speaker there, Jesus, as ye call Him, the light, as He is in the
mind and soul of individual entities, without Him, there is no way
to the Father. He speaks to thee, "Ask in my name". "Love ye one
another", is His last command, pure, simple; not possessive, but
love that casteth out fear, that putteth the heart, the mind, the
soul at ease and not in doubt and in fear.
In thy Father's house are Many mansions, my son. Seek ye those
things that will make thy calling and thy election sure in Him. Be
ye not wafted about as an unstable one, but stand ye girded with
those messages of truth that may come from thy Father's throne. Thou
hast Healings in thine experience. Spend thy strength, spend thine
body and thine mind in thy love for thy fellow man. For He is able
to keep that He has promised unto the sons of men, that: "A new
commandment I give, that ye love one another."
The way ye know, and it is hard only to those that trust in
themselves and in the strength of their own experience. But
experience rather that love that may make thee Strong in His might.
For He hath called thee by name. Thou hast a task to perform. Faint
not! Though the way seem long, yet a moment in the presence of thine
Saviour is worth Years in the tents of the wicked. Glory in the
strength, the privilege thou hast been given that ye may serve thy
Know that Nicodemus
Was right; He had, He Has, He Is the words of Life; He is the Word
that maketh all things anew! For as He gave: "Taking my yoke upon
you, ye learn of me; for my yoke is easy, my burden is light", to
those that love His ways.
“Hate, prejudice, selfishness, backbiting,
unkindness, anger, passion, and those things of the mire that are
created in the activities of the sons of men. Then again He may come
in body to claim His own.
For odours Are necessary, else would they have been given to the
rose, to the violet, to the lilac, to the clover, to those things
that show the beauty of a loving heavenly Father!
One God the Father, the Son, the Spirit: One!
The Father, God, Jehovah, Shu: All mean one and the same! God Is!
The Spirit in action, moving, brought into being the world.
In the physical world came the Spirit, made manifest in the flesh.
Then the Father, the Son, the Spirit - One!
The is the Principle: The Lord Is One, and thus that the care of
each soul, each individual, is just as necessary, because each is
just as precious as the other in the sight of the Creative Force or
How may one come to a fuller
realization of my oneness with God?
The more ye walk, the closer ye walk with that promise: "I come as
ye ask ye will receive; if ye knock it will be opened", but it must
be for the manifestation of His divine love in the earth.
The Lord Is One
And as the individual applies and attains to that consciousness in
the material associations with others, that not that of any
individual, save as to the individual manner of application, this
the whole of the tenet or truth, the brotherly love, the
selflessness, the consciousness of the indwelling of the
universal-spiritual become a part of the consciousness of the
The Lord Thy God Is One
More and more aware that: "My life, my activities, my thoughts, my
meditation, must be more and more in accord with the will of the
Father." For in such, through such, does the individual, the entity,
the soul, the individuality of an entity, become more godlike, less
of self, less of the carnal influence may bear upon the activities
of an individual, an entity, in this material plane.
Then, the activities of the will, the consciousness, the various
terms that have been and are applied to the manner of expression in
consciousness, are the basic thoughts, the basic activities through
which each should prepare themselves for the abilities, for the
activating forces that may assist them in giving that they must
experience in their individual consciousnesses, as to how they may
be expressed that others may gain a greater concept of the oneness
of the Father in the material plane.
Opportunities are expressions of appreciation from thy Maker.
Embrace them, not for self but for the glory of thy Maker.
Think never that the opportunities have passed; for ever is there
set before thee a choice to make, and has always been given: "Today
is the acceptable year, the acceptable day, of the Lord!" It is
never too late to begin, even in an experience; for Life in its
experience is a continued, a continuous effort, in making, in
starting, the associations which bring what has ever been given as
the way whereby man may justify himself before the throne of grace
in a material world: "Inasmuch as ye do it unto the least of these,
my little ones, ye do it unto me."
When there is, then, that activity whereunto there is made known
more and more in the minds and hearts and experiences of all that
whereunto they have been called for a purpose in a material
manifestation, greater and greater becomes and grows: the
possibility, the capability, of advancement.
There are Always opportunities!
Opportunities are Never withdrawn. The Using of same by the
individuals, and the applying of them, these make for those things
that appear to others to become as good or lucky days
and a fine period when this or that influence is existent. What is
the influence? "I Will by the grace of God do that which Is Right,"
and stick to it! Not by thine own might nor anyone else's! That thou
dost apply may be, and ever is, thine opportunity.
Orderliness goes well with that in keeping with the higher ideals to
lead on and on. For when we look about ourselves, considering nature
and the expressions of creative energy in same, we realize that
orderliness is the great factor and great lesson to be learned by
For again as He gave: "As ye do it unto the least of these, my
brethren, ye do it unto me." For with that measure shall ye judge,
with that standard shall ye go forth in the power; not of thine own
might but as He leadeth thee.
For He indeed Will be thy guard, thy guide, thy Lord, if ye will but
put thy whole trust in Him, if ye will but Determine in thine own
heart to follow where He leads; putting all things behind that so
easily beset, looking to the calling that is set in that promise:
"When ye call I will hear!" Who? The "I Am That I Am" will answer to
that spirit within. For, as He has given: "My Spirit beareth witness
with thy spirit as to whether thou hast chosen aright or not."
Be then, in thine associations in friendships, the impersonal; yet
with the love of thy fellow man so deep, so high, as to show forth
that love that passeth understanding. For rest rather in those
promises that He has given, in: “A new commandment I give, that ye
love one another,” and thus fulfil the law of love. Love is law, law
is love, to those that love His appearing.
Speaking of others
For unfoldment, know that this tendency for speaking of others'
faults, others' failures, should be put away more and more, in
self's dealings with others. Rather, in every conversation, magnify
the virtues of others, rather than their faults. As ye think, as ye
treat the other fellow, so does it come back to you.
Or, as most say, those
who even indulge will make themselves pigs, but we naturally are
pigs when there is over-indulgence. This, of course, makes for
conditions which are to be met. For what one sows that must one
reap. This is unchangeable law. Know that this law may be turned
into law of grace and mercy by the individual, through living and
acting in their lives in relationships to others.
Overcome those things in the
activities according to the divine law; that is: "As ye mete unto
thy fellow man, it will be meted unto you." This has been shown thee
as the pattern in Him who gave: "If ye will ask in my name,
believing, ye have same already; for I go to the Father, and I
abiding in thee and ye in me, or I in the Father, we are One." Let
thy meditation and prayer ever be: Build Thou In Me, O God, That
Thou Seest That I Am Able To Accomplish In Thy Name. Let Thy Will Be
Done In Me! Not As I Will But As Thou Wilt Have Me Do! In this way
and manner may there be the meeting or overcoming of such
restraining influences. Not in fretting or in kicking against this
or that experience that arises. Not in faultfinding or ever
continuing to nag at anyone for his or her failure to do this or
that! Meet thine Own things! And unless thou can see that thou would
worship in thine God even in thine worst enemy, thou hast not begun
to grow. For all force and all power is of Him. See it in Him. Let
thy ways be His ways. Let His ways be thy ways. And ye can only
manifest these to thy fellow man, to those in the home, to those in
thy association, to those far away, in the manner as He gave: "As ye
would that men should do to you, do ye even so to them."
To every parent might it not be said, daily,
dedicate thy life that thy offspring may be called of God into
service, to the glory of God and to the honour of thy name!
Be worth a heap more than the position you occupy. For it is not
what you do but what you really are that counts. This shines through, what you really are, much more than what you say. You can say No,
or you can say Yes, but do you ask God to show partiality? Do You
show partiality to others?
Will the entity, If the entity will, turn for a period into the
secret chambers of the mental vision, into the purposes, aims,
desires as are created by the activities of the physical being in
the way and manner the life is conducted for the service of others,
there will be seen that the promises as have been made from the
beginning to the children of men, that:
"Lo, I am With thee, even unto the end of the world," are Being
fulfilled in that as is Being accomplished, and that as the raising
of the serpent in the wilderness brought that of the saving from the
conditions round about, so raising of that consciousness in the
heart brings that understanding that those things of the past are as
was given, "Let the dead bury the dead," and that the raising of
regeneration will come in the way that brings healing in the wings,
and that many call thee blessed for the activities. That there are those stumbling-blocks that make for fear, for doubts
that arise, is apparent through the experiences, that in the present
make for those innate fears; yet is that trust [if that trust is]
Wholly put in Him, and knowing that he that aideth a brother, a
fellow-sufferer, Lendeth to the Lord, all will be well! Keep the
ways thou hast set in thine own heart, thine own purposes; for these
will not only bring satisfaction, but will bring that contentment of
knowing a life, a service, is spent in raising in the lives, the
consciousness, the hearts of men, that which will bring Less of
suffering, More of joy, Less of disturbing influences, more of
peace, less of that that makes afraid, more of that that gives a
stout, Strong body-mind, body-heart, in the light, life, and service
of Him that Has given, that "The way ye know, the Place ye know, for
I go To the Father, and what ye ask in my name That Will be
accomplished In thee, In the way, in the manner, as He seest Thou
hast needs of!"
Then, keeping that knowledge, keeping that way, there must come
those awakenings, little by little, line upon line, precept upon
precept, example upon example; for as the wearying and wearing away
of self in His service, the Strength Does come, Will come, in Him,
who is Faithfull in that, "If thou wilt be My people, I will be thy
Again it would be said, look within, and have ye asked, have ye
sought that others do that ye are not doing, and willing to do,
yourself? These then, cherished, grow; manifested in thy dealings
with those differences, those counsels, those sayings, will make the
crooked paths straight. Keep to that line, not only of endeavour but Claim the promise,
Expect the promise of Him; whom ye Would magnify in the experiences
and lives of the children, yea of All ye meet day by day! If ye find that it is self or self's ambitions being lauded, then ye
know wherein ye have failed. Turn to Him for counsel. For He is
Mindful of thee, else the abilities, yea the call, would not have
come. Of That ye may be very, very sure. Do not give up. Though it may become, though it does become
necessary, even as it did with Him, to leave Jerusalem, yea to
leave the coasts even of his own beloved land, yet there was never
the failure to turn again to those when and where they needed Him
I stand at the door and knock; if ye will open, I will enter
Thus each individual,
must realize this through the own attunement. Ye must Know that He
walks with thee. And, as has been indicated, there should come that
experience of thy Hearing His voice. When in attune ye will, ye do.
For, as He has given, "I stand at the door and knock; if ye will
open, I will enter." This is to be, this Is then an individual experience, for each soul
that seeks His presence. Think not that He has not heard, because it
has not yet appeared so, or because thou hast not yet heard Him save
in the lives and the experiences of those thou hast helped. Seek not
then thy way of manifestations, but more and more: "Here am I, Lord;
use me, send me. Point the way that thou would have me go." This is a promise to thee, to each soul; yet each soul must of
itself Find the answer within self. For indeed the body is the
temple of the living God. There He has promised to meet thee; there
He does. And as thy body, thy mind, thy soul is attuned to that
divine as answers within, so may ye indeed be quickened to know His
purpose; and ye may fill that purpose for which ye entered this
experience. It is not then by justifying but in Glorifying the good, the true,
the beautiful, that thou hast seen in Him. Belittle not those things
that hinder. These are a part of thy cross, of that necessary; else
He, according to His promise, would not allow these to be a part of
thy awareness. For, know as He hath given: "Lo, I am with thee always, even unto
the end." This is not a mere saying, but an awareness which one may
find through that attuning through meditation, through prayer,
through the opening of self for direction by Him. First, study Self and self's relationship to the Creative Forces.
Then these may be found by the meditating, in: Mercy, God, Mercy! That I As They Servant, Thy Child, Would Known
The Light. Use Me As Thou Seest Fit Let Me In My Humble Way
And Manner Be A Channel Of Blessings To Someone Today! Show Thou Me,
O God, The Way!
Use thy abilities
Use thy abilities in
thy writing, in thy
meditation, in thy composition, to tell the glory of the
oneness of the Christ as may be manifested in body, in mind,
in soul. And as this awakens those influences in others, so does
it bring to thee that peace, that harmony, that
understanding that makes the closer walk with Him. Remember, as He gave: "If ye love me, keep my
commandments. My commandments are not grievous, only that ye
love one another, even as I have loved thee." Then as we keep such in our daily conversation, in our
daily dealings with our fellow man, in that same manner as
we think toward or treat our fellow man, so we do unto the
Lord our God, so we do unto our Saviour, our Brother, who gave All that we might know that onement with body, mind,
soul, in Him. For He IS the way, the truth. They that approach any
other way become those that cheat themselves, robbing
themselves of the truth that would bring the preventing of
those things that separate man from the love of the Father. As to thy service, as to thy light unto others: Who may tell the rose how to be beautiful? Who may tell
the stars or the moon in its course how to raise in the
heart and soul of man the longing to know the Creator of
all? And remember, as has been given, in Him is all. There
was nothing made that was made that was not made by Him,
the way, the truth, the light. Then, let not thy heart be troubled; ye believe in God, believe in Him also, who has promised to come and walk
with thee, yea, to talk with thee, as ye seek to know His
Then so live that thine own heart, thine own understanding,
thine own conscience, does not condemn thee. Neither will
thy Lord condemn thee, but will put His arm about thee.
Be ye patient with those that apparently neglect their obligations,
their duties. Tarry ye in thy meditations, in thy thoughts for those
that appear as negligent. But know that the Lord hath entrusted in
thy care the souls of many.
The expansions should be rather in this direction, that the activity
of patience is meekness in action, pureness in heart, that makes for
those forces enabling one to become aware and conscious of their
soul's expansion with the creative energies in the activities of the
As there is the expansion of the spiritual forces of the material
body, the reflections from same are those attributes that make for
the expressing of the Christ life in the daily walks of the body. So
that love in its essence is manifested in every word, act, thought
and experience of the body, even as it was in Him.
Patience is that necessary activity of the mind, mentally,
that makes for expansion of and acquaintance with the activities of
that that may be known in self, as to whether there Is the proper
attitude with that which is held as the ideal, as to whether the
faith is in faith or by works, whether the virtue is as with
understanding or is as a set rule, whether self is in possession of
the ideal, and with cooperative measures activating in the
experience of individuals.
As the trust, the hope, the faith is manifested by the patience day
by day does there become the more awareness in self's own inner
consciousness that all is well with Him; knowing that if the Lord is
on thy side, who may be against you? Trust, and do that thou knowest
to do, acting as the spirit moves within, and look not back;
remember Lot's wife.
Be faithful to that which is given in thy charge day by day, for he
that is faithful over the little things will be made the ruler over
Those who have gained that consciousness of the indwelling
of that Spirit, that is abiding with those who seek to know His
face, have the consciousness that this Is the day, the time, when
all men must seek to be patient one with another, under all
conditions and circumstances, that they may be one with Him who in
patience endured all that we might have the access to the Father,
through the patience, the love, the consciousness, shown in a
material plane. Be faithful to that thou Knowest to do. Question not
what nor whether another has chosen. Rather do that Thou knowest to
As has been given, first, Is thine ideal only in Him? Is thine self
in accord with thine ideal? Is thine virtue and understanding in
accord with these? Then with patience wait for that awakening which
will make for an understanding of that necessary to overcome, even
as He. Taking stock, then, with self, one may know whether it is
patience, faith, virtue, knowledge, brotherly love, or what, lacking
in self. Do not find the fault in the other, but rather cleanse thine Own mind, heart and soul, and the proper attitude toward
whatever problem that presents itself will be in that manner of
understanding love that knows no fear, but being content in His
praise, His love, His understanding.
Use that thou knowest, and with patience wait for the light that
comes with the knowledge of "I am using that Thou gavest me."
Then, with patience wait for that. Is that attained in thine self so
that the Consciousness of the Master comes to thee in all thine
hours, then with patience wait ye on the Lord; for as one finds that
in the understanding of the Oneness, when He has Found that the
vessel is worthy of acceptation it is Kept full. For too oft have ye
lost thy concept of what patience means! And as He gave, "In
Patience become ye Aware of your souls!" Don't be impatient, with others and
with thyself. Know that in patience ye become aware of thy soul. And
thy body and thy mind, and thy soul, are one. They live together. Hence it is well to
cultivate patience and humour. Remember, man alone in God's creation
is given the ability to laugh, the ability to make those
relationships personal between one another, to make them creative
and individual, by choice.
That keep. Don't lose patience with thy children, thy friends who
become impatient. For He did not lose patience with His Disciples
when they said: "Should we go away to buy bread to feed this mob?",
"What have we here?" "What have you here?" Did you ever hear this
used to individuals? Try it! It is one of the most disturbing, yet
one of the most quieting words which may be used, even to a mob.
"What have we here?" And only a few loaves, a few fishes, yet in the
hands of those who could realize as ye may, "Of myself, I can do
nothing, but through His power", it may be multiplied into
blessings. And remember, it can be multiplied in curses also, if ye
use not thy abilities aright. Do not become impatient. Learn
patience with self as well as with others, for in patience ye become
aware of your soul, or become aware of the needs of same to build in
that constructive way or manner as to make for the greater
manifestations in materiality in the present experience.
Who and what is thy pattern?
Throughout the experience of man in the material world, at various
seasons and periods, teachers have come; setting up certain forms or
certain theories as to manners in which an individual shall control
the appetites of the body or of the mind, so as to attain to some
particular phase of development. There has also come a teacher who was bold enough to declare himself
as the son of the living God.
He set no rules of appetite. He set no rules of ethics, other than:
"As ye would that men should do to you, do ye even so to them", and
to know: "Inasmuch as ye do it unto the least of these, thy brethren,
ye do it unto thy Maker." He declared that the kingdom of heaven is within each individual
entity's consciousness, to be attained, to be aware of through
meditating upon the fact that God is the Father of every soul. Jesus,
The Christ, is the Mediator. And in Him, and in the study of
His examples in the earth, is Life, and that ye may have it more
abundantly. He came to demonstrate, to manifest, to give life and
light to all. Here, then, ye find a friend, a brother, a companion.
As He gave: "I call ye not servants, but brethren." For, as many as believe, to them He gives power to become the
children of God, the Father; joint heirs with this Jesus, the
Christ, in the knowledge and in the awareness of this presence
abiding ever with those who set this ideal before them.
For if you with to bring peace to others, it must be within self
first, before ye may give it to others.
For until ye are willing to Lose thyself in service, ye may not
indeed know that peace which He has promised to give, to all. For
as he gave: "My peace I leave with you, my peace I Give unto you."
Not as the world giveth peace, but that which is able to keep thee
ever as in the shadow of His wing.
Do analyze self, do know the relationships with Creative Forces. Do
take Jesus, the Christ into thy confidence, thy prayer, thy daily
companionship. Not that this is as preaching, it is an every day
practice that needs to be, and ye will find that peace, that hope,
that Joy in living that ye seek.
Then, through whom, from whence may man gather an idea, an ideal to
which he, as an individual or as a group, or as a nation, may adhere
with impunity; to which purpose, to which ideal, to which surety he
may put his faith, his confidence? As has been indicated, it is not
in individuals or in personalities. For, these have failed, and
cause those conflicts which have set the world on fire; causing
death, destruction. And fear has crept into the heart even of the
elect. Unless these days be shortened the very elect may be shaken,
may tremble at the destruction, the littleness to which human life
is held in the ideas of groups or nations, or those purposes that
have been set. Then, there must be the looking to Him who has
overcome the world; who hath known death, who hath known wars, who
hath known trials, who hath known tribulations; who hath met man on
his Own consciousness of physical, mental and spiritual emotions;
Him who hath given: "I come not to bring peace alone but a sword, to
those who have forsaken the way of life"; Him, who came that man
might have life more abundantly; He who, though capable of defying
man, said in the hour of trial, "My hour is come, the prince of this
world cometh, but he hath no part in me, My peace I give unto you;
not as the world knoweth peace, but my peace."
Then, we find, peace in the world must begin first within the heart
and purpose and mind of the individual, prompted by that something
which answers within, even as has been given: "My spirit beareth
witness with thy spirit, as to whether ye be the children of God or
not." As man looks upon the world today, there comes that
understanding, that manner in which choice and judgments may be
drawn; even as He gave to that one who had announced by the
authority of the prophets, "Behold the lamb of God, that taketh away
the sins of the world," who comes to bring peace into the hearts of
those who seek to do righteousness in the earth. And yet because he
had fallen into that answering as of self to fears within, he began
to doubt, as apparently no measure was being attempted, outwardly at
least, to relieve him of his bonds; and he asked, "Art thou He that
was to come, or shall we look for another?" The Master's answer is
the judgment of today, even as then. There was not the Yes or the No
answer, but "Go tell John that the sick are healed, the poor have
the gospel preached, the lame walk, the blind see."
Not merely the physically lame, not merely the physically blind, not
merely the physically sick, but it was that which answered to the
whole purpose of man's experience in the earth, which was completed
in Him; that makes it possible for as many as believe to become the
children of the living God. Then, thinkest thou that ye can treat
thy neighbour, thy brother, with aught but the spirit of truth, the
fruits of the spirit that He gave, and find other than that ye
measure out? For, with what measure ye mete it is measured to thee
again. As ye do it unto the least ye do it unto thy Maker. Whose
spirit, what manner of peace, then, seek ye as individuals? That ye
may gratify the appetites of thy body? That ye may satisfy the lust
of the eye? That ye may know fame or fortune? These fade, these pass
away. Only that which enables the individual also to bear the cross,
even as He, will enable that individual to know that peace which
encompassed Him in such a measure that He broke the bonds of death,
overcame hell and the grave, and rose in a newness of life; that ye,
here, and now might know that peace in troubled periods. What Can
you do, then, as individuals, that the plague of war, the injustice
to man be taken away, the plague of death and fear of destruction?
Ye may Stand, even as He, between the Living and the Dead! Let those
that die have that purpose even as He: "It shall Not Be In Vain!"
Let those that live Live unto God; magnifying, spreading the fruits
of brotherly love, kindness, patience; that the plague of war may be
stayed. Ye cannot pray "Peace, Peace" when there is no peace in thine own heart and soul! but by knowing (for His spirit answers
with thy spirit) that each day, each person ye meet is Glad that you
are alive! Glad that You have come in touch with them; for you have
brought, and bring, hope to their lives, just in the passing!
This means, then, that you may so live the life as He emulated in
the earth, that ye radiate life, joy, peace! that which casteth out
fear, by living, by being, by doing unto others, for others, that ye
would like others to do unto you. O, ye say, this is not new!
Neither is thy present disturbance, nor thy present hope, nor
Anything! For, even as he said: "There is nothing new under the
sun." What is has been, and will be again. Only as ye Use that
birthright, that purpose, that Will within thine own consciousness
to do justice, to do right, to Love good, to eschew evil, may ye as
individuals, as a group, as a nation, stand between the living and
the dead, and Stay the sin that maketh man make war, of any nature,
against his brother. Thou Art thy brother's keeper! Act that in
thine own heart. Who Is thy brother? "Who is my mother? They that do
the will of the Father, the same is my mother, my sister, my
brother." If ye do the things of the devil,
are ye not his? If ye do the things of the Lord (He Is God), are ye
not His? Then study to show thyself approved unto God, a workman not
ashamed, rightly dividing the words of truth, keeping Self unspotted
from the world. In this ye may build, here a little, there a little,
line upon line, precept upon precept. Fear and doubt cast away,
trusting in the Lord. He alone can save.
Play and Children
But take time to add something to your mind mentally and
spiritually. And take time to play a while with others. There are
children growing. Have you added anything constructive to any
child's life? You'll not be in heaven if you're not leaning on the
arm of someone you have helped. You have little hope of getting
there unless you do help someone else.
When the greater power is within thine gift or thine ministry, then
the greatest care must be exercised in thy judgments to and of thy
fellow man. Many an individual may stand adversity that prosperity
or authority spoils. So in those activities that will come to thine
own experience, hold fast to those judgments that are of the
Creative Forces. Know that only in Him is there Truth and Light And
Authority. For All power is of His giving, and is lent to the sons
of men as Opportunities for expressions of the Creative Forces.
Practice makes perfect; and as one practices, puts in use, in word,
in deed, day by day, so does one grow In grace, in knowledge, in
understanding; and "He that would be the greatest among you, let him
be the servant of all."
And when thou prayest, thou shalt not be as the hypocrites are: for
they love to pray standing in the synagogues and in the corners of
the streets, that they may be seen of men. Verily I say unto you,
They have their reward. But thou, when thou prayest, enter into thy closet, and when thou
hast shut thy door, pray to thy Father which is in secret; and thy
Father which seeth in secret shall reward thee openly.
But when ye pray, use not vain repetitions, as the heathen do: for
they think that they shall be heard for their much speaking. Be not
ye therefore like unto them: for your Father knoweth what things ye
have need of, before ye ask him.
The prayers of the righteous shall save many
"Where two or three are joined together in one purpose, I am in the
midst of same." The combination, then, of both - for the
supplication is putting self in that attunement to those forces as
manifest in the growth, the development, of spiritual forces as are
manifested in the material world.
After this manner therefore Pray Ye:
“Our Father Who Art In Heaven, Hallowed Be Thy Name.
Thy Kingdom Come.
Thy Will Be Done; As In Heaven, So In Earth.
Give Us For Tomorrow The Needs Of The Body.
Forget Those Trespasses As We Forgive Those,
That Have Trespassed And Do Trespass Against Us.
Be Thou The Guide In The Time Of Trouble, Turmoil, and Temptation.
Lead Us In Paths Of Righteousness for Thy Name's Sake".
For if ye forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will
also forgive you: But if ye forgive not men their trespasses,
neither will your Father forgive your trespasses. Let not your hearts be troubled, neither let them be afraid. For the
Lord is in the Holy Temple, let the earth and those that love the
Lord rejoice, that the Father-God in the Christ is mindful of men,
and He will not let thy loved ones, nor those with and for whom ye
pray, be tempted beyond that they are able to bear. But live daily
as ye pray, and pray as ye would have thy brother, the Christ, to
praise thy life before the throne of mercy. Show ye mercy and love
one to another, then, if ye would have love and mercy shown to thee.
For this is the beginning and the end of wisdom. When thou prayest, enter into thine closet, that is, within self,
not shutting oneself away from the world, but closing self to God's
Presence, and pray in secret and the reward will be in the open;
for, as was given, "Men do not light a candle and put it under a
bushel, but it is set, Set, on a hill, that it may give Life,
light, unto all." Then, to all of you: Purify thy body, thy mind. Consecrate thyselves
in prayer, yes, but not as he that prayed: "I thank Thee I am not
like other fellows." Rather let there be in thy heart that
humbleness, for ye must humble thyself if ye would know Him; and
come with an open, seeking, contrite heart, desirous of having the
way shown to thee. And when thou art shown, turn not thy face the other way; but be
true to the vision that is given thee. And He will speak, for His
promise has been: "When ye call I will hear, and will answer
speedily." Then, when He speaks, open thy heart, thy mind to the opportunities,
to the glories that are thine, if ye will but accept them through
that attuning through meditation of thy consciousness, thy desire to
the Living God; and say and live within thyself as He of old gave:
"Others may do as they may, but as for me, I will worship, yea, I
will serve the living God." He is not far from thee! He is closer than thy right hand. He standeth at the door of thy heart! Will ye bid Him enter? or will ye
turn away?” For prayer is a supplication not only to the Creative Forces from
within but To the Creative Forces, With the Creative Forces from
without. As the union of these influences and forces then moves into
activity in individuals who seek through a channel for more harmony,
more peace, more understanding, greater may be the influence. Then know in what you believe, but know Who is the author of same;
not as hearsay but as an experience in self. For thy body is indeed
the temple of the living God, and a beautiful temple! Keep it such.
There He has promised to meet thee. There He may commune with thee.
Use periods of meditation, periods of prayer. These are not, then,
other than that thy prayer should ever be: "Lord, here am I, Use me
in the way Thou seest that I may be the greater channel of blessings
to those I meet day by day." Then, let they prayer,
let thy motto ever be: "In Thy will may I dwell, in the
consciousness of Thy presence abiding in me," ever in that love, "As
ye do it unto my brethren ye do it unto me."
"Not my will, but thine, O Lord, be done in and through me this day,
each day: That there may be a realization of that thou hast for us
as thy children to do in this earth of thine. Let our days as thou
seest we may use them for thy purposes be as thou would have them
be: Each making for those concessions, for those understandings. We
know our weaknesses: These we do not deny but these we overcome, O
God, In Thee! For thou art might, thou art strenght, thou art love!
Ourselves we will put away. Thee, O Lord, we magnify before thy
Do not leave from thy budgeting of
time thy periods of prayer or meditation. Let thy meditations oft
be, in thy own words or in thy own manner; meaning them, not as
rote, but Livethem as a part of thee: “Lord, thou Art Holy! Keep thou me
holy in my life, in my associations with my associates, with my
home, with my friends, with my enemies; that I may be daily a
channel of blessing to someone, in an appreciation of thy love thou
hast shown through thy son Jesus the Christ.”
All Prayers Are Answered
Keep that prayer which has been.
For all prayer is answered. Don't tell God how to answer it. Make
thy wants known to Him. Live as if ye expected them to be answered.
For He has given: "What ye ask in my name, believing, that will my
Father in heaven give to thee." Again it has been said, and truly,
the Father will not withhold any good thing from those who love His
coming. All prayers are answered when the individual doesn't tell
God just how to answer them.
Meeting of Prayer, Intercession
That with which each individual approaches such an hour is how much
each may put into same and get out of same, and do good unto others.
First, let each enter into its own inner self and ask for direction,
and, Believing His presence will be with thee. For, He has promised:
"Where two or three are gathered together in My name, There I will
be in the midst of them." Let each, then, so consecrate, so dedicate
that hour, that period, to such a service for its fellow man,
seeking, knowing, that His presence will be with thee. Then, when He
has directed thine group, who, who, would question same?
As one prepares for the indwelling with the Creative Forces, then
one may expect to enter into the joys of the Lord.
The mind is the builder, for the
holding of a problem does not change it one whit, it is what one
does about it that makes the change! Then, to know to do good and
not to do it, is sin. To know the truth and not give expression is
fault-finding in self. Meet the problems
first, though, in the spiritual; then the mental and the Material
results will become more satisfactory. As the law has been and is a
portion of the hopes, as the associations are still many of the
problems of the moment, find the solution in the choices as in
keeping with these: Thou hast seen the way of the Lord.
Thou knowest it to be good.
Depart not from same for the satisfying or the gratifying of
material wishes or material desires.
For, the law of the Lord is perfect; and they that seek to follow in
His way shall not find themselves among those disturbed, nor among
the children of want.
In thy daily dealings with others
Forget not to interpret the lesson, the problem of the day, from
a Spiritual angle. Not that as of a goody-goody manner; not that as
of rote for rote's sake, but, as is expressed in nature: step by
step, line by line, precept upon precept, Because it gives such
security in life and its expressions in the earth as to make same
more worth while. It is well always, mentally, to hold to that of wishful, hopeful
thinking. For, as ye think in thy heart, so is that urge to bring
that hoped for into materialization. Yet, meet the problems each
day. But lay them down when ye attempt to aid others.
They Daily Experiences and Daily Problems
For even misery loves company. So does the power of God make for
might in the lives and the experiences of others. For it has been
given that we are as sheep following, following. Who art thou
following? Hath thou chosen the Lamb of God as thy leader? If so,
well done, thou good and faithful servant. These may be thy
benediction, if thou hast chosen such and dost keep in the way that
He has pointed out. Not some great deed, not some great feat, not
some great yielded influence; but rather as the little leaven that
leaveneth the whole lump. For it is line upon line, precept upon precept, here a little, there
a little. Ye Are in eternity. What will ye do with the Lamb of God?
Will ye offer Him again upon the altar of thine own selfishness, or
will ye in mercy, in harmony, in peace, be as one with Him; that ye
may know? For He is the good shepherd, and He understandeth the
needs of His sheep, and ye know His Voice. Have ye listened to the
still small voice within? For it warneth thee, it will direct thee,
if ye will but harken. "My problems, my
experiences, my conditions, I leave them, O God, in Thy hands! They
are Thine, as I am Thine! Use me in those places, in those channels,
in those ways where Thou seest I may be of the greater service."
And then ye may be very sure that these, if ye live them, if ye be
them, if ye are them, are cared for in His way. And every soul
should be even as the Son in the example gave: "Not my will but Thine be done in me, through me."
Then, there must be another phase in human experience that man also
may complete this triune in his study of the mental, the spiritual
and the material relationships in this material world. Patience,
here, may be the answer, if there is the correct concept of what the
proper interpretation of patience is in the experience. Hence these
being chosen, they are, then, the basis upon which the reason, the
expectation, the application, shall be in dealing with all phases of
the experience of the soul in this material relationship. As is
understood, then: Father-God is as the body, or the whole. Mind is
as the Christ, which is the way. The Holy Spirit is as the soul, or,
in material interpretation, purposes, hopes, desires. Then, each
phase of these has its part to play, its part of influence upon the
individual in its relationships to problems, to individuals, to its
hopes and fears. For, each has its phase of expression in the
activities of the soul. These are then not merely ideals, but they
are working, practical, everyday experiences. Then, as the
individual soul meets various problems, with this analysis of the
problem, there is the questioning within self as to whether it is
purely mental, purely the physical seeking expression, or the desire
of the body-fears, the body-temptations, the body's glory, merely
the body's satisfaction, or as to whether the problems are purely of
the mental. Yet know, until an individual soul in time or space, or
in acquaintanceship or in the friendship of an individual, sees in
every other entity that he would worship in his Maker, he has not
begun to have the proper concept of universal consciousness.
You do not meet others
problems save as you take them on yourself. You meet thyself in
For, there in the temple of the own body may the individual see his
Maker. For, there He has promised to meet thee, and He is able to
keep that promise, Through those words, Through those activities
that have been and are as admonitions to all who would know the
truth, who would seek to be set free and to bring that peace and
harmony into their own awarenesses. For, His promise has been: "I
stand at the door and knock. It is I! Be not afraid! Lo, I am with
thee always, even unto the end of the world." For know the promises have ever been that the meeting of the
Creative Forces or God is within thine own self, in thine own
meditation, in thine own prayers; not for thyself but that self may
be the greater channel through which the greater blessings, the
greater understandings may come to others of that thou would worship
in thine inner self as thy Creator, thy Maker, thy Love, thy Law,
thy Inner Self! And these will make for that which will enable self to become more
and more the channel through which others may know the Lord is
indeed in His holy temple of each and every soul that would seek to
know His face; even as thou in thine own experiences may find and
come to know Him as indeed He may walk, He may talk with thee in the
garden of thine inner self!
In turning again and again within to that consciousness, that temple
wherein there has been the promise that He would ever meet thee
within thine inner self, there may the light be found, there may the
understanding be gained; that the entity may give out to those that
are in darkness, or in doubt, that are in the shadows of fear or in
the way of the wayward, that which will bring more and more to them
the awareness of that presence ever being at-one with them if they
will but look and trust in Him, the promise from within.
For as He has given
thee: "If it were not so I would have told you." And this means You!
For the Father hath promised and has given us a body, that is a
temple of the living soul, which is that temple in which ye should
meet Him day by day.
For as the pattern was given even in the mount of old, when ye turn
to Him, He will direct thee. Why, O Why, then, to any subordinate,
when thy brother, thy Christ, thy Saviour would speak with thee!
For He is not far away. For as has been given, do not say who will
ascend into heaven to bring Him down, or who will come from over the
seas to bring a message to me; for Lo, He is within thine own heart,
thine own mind, and There ye may meet Him. For His messages have
been, are, and ever will be
for Thee , not someone else! But "Put thy burdens on me, saith the
Lord, Learn of me, for I am lowly even as thee, I am meek even as
thee, I will give thee Rest unto your soul, unto your mind!"
For the mind is both spiritual and physical in its attributes to the
human body, and if ye feed thy body-mind upon worldly things, ye
become worldly. If ye feed thy mind upon those things that are His,
ye become His indeed.
And He stands at thy door and knocks, and bids that ye will let Him
in! For He has promised, and His promises are sure!
For, His promise has
been, "If ye love me, I will come and abide with thee forever, I
will not leave thee comfortless, but will Come! Behold, I stand at
the door and knock." In that keep thy faith, and thy promises are
sure in Him. For He faileth not. For He is ever the same, yesterday,
today, tomorrow. Hence there has come
in the present that knowledge of the closer relationships to
individuals, as well as the understanding of the love of the Creator
for that created, through the gift of the promise to men! Keep In
that promise, for as the various experiences of man in his
relationships to the Creator are as those of signs to individuals
who seek to know His face, no matter how far one may Wander, when
the sincere, earnest cry is to know that face, He is Faithful who
has promised, and is able to keep that as is committed Unto His
keeping against Any circumstance, any trial, that may come in the
experience of His children; for He has promised that we Shall not be
chastened beyond that we are able to bear, and he that endureth unto
the end shall Wear the crown of Eternal life! and, "Even though He
were the Son, yet learned He obedience through the things which He
So, as the cry went from Him, "Why, why, hast thou forsaken me?" may
oft be wrung from our Own Beings; yet, even as He stayed and raised
Him to perfection, giving unto Him All Power, so may we in that
love, even as experienced By the entity, know that contentment, that
joy, of serving, even With Him! Depend more and more
upon the promises as are faithful From Him, who has brought into
being all that Is; for in Him we live and move, and have our being,
and as we are making every atom of our own physical beings conscious
of that existent within our bodies, so may we bring Healing to
others, physically, mentally, that there be perfect coordination in
the experience of others.
As an entity, a soul, a mind, enters, as has been so oft given,
put about the self the cloak, the garment, yea the mantle of Christ;
not as a man, not as an individual but the Christ; that universal
consciousness of love that we see manifested in those who have
forgotten self but, As Jesus, give themselves that others may know
the truth. For the promise has been: "If ye will call, I will Hear!"
"If ye will call, I Will Hear!" That is the protection. Call, that the spirit of truth,
that is manifested in the promises of an All-Loving Father, be about
self in the seeking to aid, to bring cheer, hope, help, faith,
courage to the weak, to the discouraged, to the disconsolate. These
be the promises, and how hath it been said? "Though the heavens and
the earth pass away, my words, my promises shall Not", unless ye
supersede them by the promises of man!"
“Each individual came into life with a purpose from God.”
“Each individual is as a harp upon which the breath of God would
“You may or not be in a position of great power, never the less know
that you each have your part to do.”
“God willed that man should be free to choose and to show his
relationship to God, that may only be manifested in the manner that
each individual treats his fellow man.”
Turn rather within. Know that
whatever experience ye have in the material sojourns for a purpose.
Know that it is not by chance that ye are in a material or earthly
consciousness in the present. For know that all activities of the
mind, of the body, must be based upon Spiritual things. This does
not mean goody-goody, but the Purpose, the ideal. Unless it is
founded in that which is constructive, which is Creative, this
experience may become, under these extremes, a torment throughout.
Yet if thy ideals, if thy purposes, if thy desires are set in that
which Is creative, we may make a glorious experience of this sojourn
in this material plane. Cultivate them. For know, though thy body,
thy mind, thy soul be as the triune, they are one; with each
endowed, by the Maker, with each attribute of the various phases of
the experience. The body-physical with the emotions of same is
physical and spiritual; the body-mental with its desires is both
carnal and very spiritual. The Spirit is willing. The spirit
desires, the spirit seeks the greater understanding, the greater
knowledge of thy relationships to the Creative Forces or God. Then
cultivate, in thy mind, in thy body, those attributes which are
endowed with that seeking for the knowledge of the true relationship
of every soul with its Maker. For as in the godhead there is the
Father, the Son, the Holy Ghost, so then each may be termed, the
Body as the First Cause, the Mind as the Son (Which is the Way,
which is the Manner, which is the builder in thy consciousness of
the manifestations which are thy daily experience). And it is
according to thy own choice as to whether these are constantly
constructive, creative, or for the satisfying of material appetites.
For know, it is ever as He hath given, Today, Now, there is set
before thee good and evil, life and death, Choose thou! It is
through that factor of Will, then, that the Choice is made according
to thine own Ideal. What is thy ideal? in spirit, in mind, in body?
What is thy ideal relationship to thy home, to thy father, to thy
mother, to thy friends? Are these creative? Are these in keeping
with that which is the messenger of thy own life, thy Mind? Has not
rather the lack of thy choice brought into thy experience, because
these were not considered, that disturbing force which arises within
thy experience in the present? Do two wrongs make Anything right?
Have ye lived, will ye and do ye live day by day as ye would that
men should do to you, do ye even so to them? This is the law, this
is the Ideal. Not merely idealistic, but the Way of Life!
study, read carefully the messages sent to Titus and Philemon by
Paul; and ye will learn, if ye will meditate upon same, much that
has escaped thy understanding. For in such ye may find joy and
happiness, not long facedness but Joy, in knowing that thy life,
thyself is spent in being a channel through which blessings may come
to those ye meet day by day. Let no day then pass that ye do not
speak a Cheery and an encouraging word to someone! And ye will find
thine own heart uplifted, thine own life opened, thy love
appreciated, thy purposes understood!
Message sent to Titus by Paul
Titus Chapter 1
1 Paul, a servant of God, and an apostle of Jesus Christ, according
to the faith of God's elect, and the acknowledging of the truth
which is after godliness;
2 In hope of eternal life, which God, that cannot lie, promised
before the world began;
3 But hath in due times manifested his word through preaching, which
is committed unto me according to the commandment of God our
4 To Titus, mine own son after the common faith: Grace, mercy, and
peace, from God the Father and the Lord Jesus Christ our Saviour.
5 For this cause left I thee in Crete, that thou shouldest set in
order the things that are wanting, and ordain elders in every city,
as I had appointed thee:
6 If any be blameless, the husband of one wife, having faithful
children not accused of riot or unruly.
7 For a bishop must be blameless, as the steward of God; not
selfwilled, not soon angry, not given to wine, no striker, not given
to filthy lucre;
8 But a lover of hospitality, a lover of good men, sober, just,
9 Holding fast the faithful word as he hath been taught, that he may
be able by sound doctrine both to exhort and to convince the
10 For there are many unruly and vain talkers and deceivers,
specially they of the circumcision:
11 Whose mouths must be stopped, who subvert whole houses, teaching
things which they ought not, for filthy lucre's sake.
12 One of themselves, even a prophet of their own, said, The
Cretians are alway liars, evil beasts, slow bellies.
13 This witness is true. Wherefore rebuke them sharply, that they
may be sound in the faith;
14 Not giving heed to Jewish fables, and commandments of men, that
turn from the truth.
15 Unto the pure all things are pure: but unto them that are defiled
and unbelieving is nothing pure; but even their mind and conscience
16 They profess that they know God; but in works they deny him,
being abominable, and disobedient, and unto every good work
Titus Chapter 2
1 But speak thou the things which become sound doctrine:
2 That the aged men be sober, grave, temperate, sound in faith, in
charity, in patience.
3 The aged women likewise, that they be in behaviour as becometh
holiness, not false accusers, not given to much wine, teachers of
4 That they may teach the young women to be sober, to love their
husbands, to love their children,
5 To be discreet, chaste, keepers at home, good, obedient to their
own husbands, that the word of God be not blasphemed.
6 Young men likewise exhort to be sober minded.
7 In all things shewing thyself a pattern of good works: in doctrine
shewing uncorruptness, gravity, sincerity,
8 Sound speech, that cannot be condemned; that he that is of the
contrary part may be ashamed, having no evil thing to say of you.
9 Exhort servants to be obedient unto their own masters, and to
please them well in all things; not answering again;
10 Not purloining, but shewing all good fidelity; that they may
adorn the doctrine of God our Saviour in all things.
11 For the grace of God that bringeth salvation hath appeared to all
12 Teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we
should live soberly, righteously, and godly, in this present world;
13 Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the
great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ;
14 Who gave himself for us, that he might redeem us from all
iniquity, and purify unto himself a peculiar people, zealous of good
15 These things speak, and exhort, and rebuke with all authority.
Let no man despise thee.
Titus Chapter 3
1 Put them in mind to be subject to principalities and powers, to
obey magistrates, to be ready to every good work,
2 To speak evil of no man, to be no brawlers, but gentle, shewing
all meekness unto all men.
3 For we ourselves also were sometimes foolish, disobedient,
deceived, serving divers lusts and pleasures, living in malice and
envy, hateful, and hating one another.
4 But after that the kindness and love of God our Saviour toward man
5 Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to
his mercy he saved us, by the washing of regeneration, and renewing
of the Holy Ghost;
6 Which he shed on us abundantly through Jesus Christ our Saviour;
7 That being justified by his grace, we should be made heirs
according to the hope of eternal life.
8 This is a faithful saying, and these things I will that thou
affirm constantly, that they which have believed in God might be
careful to maintain good works. These things are good and profitable
9 But avoid foolish questions, and genealogies, and contentions, and
strivings about the law; for they are unprofitable and vain.
10 A man that is an heretick after the first and second admonition
11 Knowing that he that is such is subverted, and sinneth, being
condemned of himself.
12 When I shall send Artemas unto thee, or Tychicus, be diligent to
come unto me to Nicopolis: for I have determined there to winter.
13 Bring Zenas the lawyer and Apollos on their journey diligently,
that nothing be wanting unto them.
14 And let ours also learn to maintain good works for necessary
uses, that they be not unfruitful.
15 All that are with me salute thee. Greet them that love us in the
faith. Grace be with you all. Amen. (It was written to Titus,
ordained the first bishop of the church of the Cretians, from
Nicopolis of Macedonia.)
Message sent to Philemon by Paul
Philemon Chapter 1
1 Paul, a prisoner of Jesus Christ, and Timothy our brother, unto
Philemon our dearly beloved, and fellowlabourer,
2 And to our beloved Apphia, and Archippus our fellowsoldier, and to
the church in thy house:
3 Grace to you, and peace, from God our Father and the Lord Jesus
4 I thank my God, making mention of thee always in my prayers,
5 Hearing of thy love and faith, which thou hast toward the Lord
Jesus, and toward all saints;
6 That the communication of thy faith may become effectual by the
acknowledging of every good thing which is in you in Christ Jesus.
7 For we have great joy and consolation in thy love, because the
bowels of the saints are refreshed by thee, brother.
8 Wherefore, though I might be much bold in Christ to enjoin thee
that which is convenient,
9 Yet for love's sake I rather beseech thee, being such an one as
Paul the aged, and now also a prisoner of Jesus Christ.
10 I beseech thee for my son Onesimus, whom I have begotten in my
11 Which in time past was to thee unprofitable, but now profitable
to thee and to me:
12 Whom I have sent again: thou therefore receive him, that is, mine
13 Whom I would have retained with me, that in thy stead he might
have ministered unto me in the bonds of the gospel:
14 But without thy mind would I do nothing; that thy benefit should
not be as it were of necessity, but willingly.
15 For perhaps he therefore departed for a season, that thou
shouldest receive him for ever;
16 Not now as a servant, but above a servant, a brother beloved,
specially to me, but how much more unto thee, both in the flesh, and
in the Lord?
17 If thou count me therefore a partner, receive him as myself.
18 If he hath wronged thee, or oweth thee ought, put that on mine
19 I Paul have written it with mine own hand, I will repay it:
albeit I do not say to thee how thou owest unto me even thine own
20 Yea, brother, let me have joy of thee in the Lord: refresh my
bowels in the Lord.
21 Having confidence in thy obedience I wrote unto thee, knowing
that thou wilt also do more than I say.
22 But withal prepare me also a lodging: for I trust that through
your prayers I shall be given unto you.
23 There salute thee Epaphras, my fellowprisoner in Christ Jesus;
24 Marcus, Aristarchus, Demas, Lucas, my fellowlabourers.
25 The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with your spirit. Amen.
(Written from Rome to Philemon, by Onesimus a servant.)
For what purpose then entered ye into this experience
That thy earthly father, that thy earthly mother brought by a union
a consummation of a material desire the opportunity for thy soul to
seek expression again in materiality, for it offered thee the
opportunities for thy aid to each of them, their aid, their counsel,
their guidance to thee that ye might be the better channel. For as ye viewed from the ramparts of that inter-between thy
activities in the material world, ye found a means of expression of
that Thou Art, In the mercy of the Lord! Then use that thou hast in hand day by day. For that as He hath
given thee is sufficient unto the day. And when thou hast used that
properly and in the name and in the service of thy Lord, He will
give, He will show, He will bear thee up. For indeed He hath given His angels charge concerning thee, lest
thou in thy weakness, lest thou in thy forgetfulness, dishonour
thyself, thy Lord, thy purpose, thy desire in entering this
Then, let this be thy watchword
"Mercy, Father-God, Not sacrifice!" For He hath no joy in sacrifice,
He hath no joy in suffering, He hath no joy in disease and sorrow;
but ye in thy disturbing influence for the moment forget to thank
Him for His mercy, His love, that endureth even when we mock Him.
For His love is divine and overlooketh the shortcomings of those
that are weak, or self-satisfied. Can ye do likewise? Is it asking that ye do other than thy Pattern?
And behold it hath not entered the heart of man to know the beauty,
the joy, the peace, the Harmony that the Lord hath prepared for
those that love Him! For He, thy Lord, thy God, hath called thee by name, even as He has
given, "Whosoever will drink the cup, even as of my blood, he may
indeed be free." While ye labour, let Him that is the author, that is the finisher,
that Is the Life, that is the bread of life, that is the blood of
life, let Him alone be thy guide! Dost He call any soul into service, Then by name will He, does He,
designate, and to whom it becomes a charge to keep, even as he has
walked with Him, this body that ye use as a channel of approach to
the Throne; ye make of same oft as a laughingstock to thy very soul
through thine own selfishness! Let the light of Him, thy Christ, thy God, In, that it may cleanse
thy body, that it may lighten thy soul, that it may purge thy mind,
that ye will only be just gentle, just kind; not find fault with
any, for with faults ye build Barriers to thine own soul's
enlightenment. "I, thy God, thy Christ, beseech thee!" Keep in the glory of that thou hast purposed in thine heart. For, in the gentleness of the speech, in the kindness of the
activity, thou showest forth the love of the Father. Be not overcome
of those things that would hinder, but overcome the evil with the
good, and give the glory, Always, to the Father. Keep thine heart and thine mind Singing in the glory of the
manifestations, of the beauty and of the glory of the Father in the
earth, as thou hast seen manifest among men. Look not on those things that appear as stumbling blocks in the
lives of others, for as he has given of old: "I am persuaded that
there is nothing in heaven nor in earth, nor in hell, that may
separate man from the love of the Father and the manifestations of
that love save man's own self." In the glory of the Lord and His manifestations in the earth, be
thou the channel through which some blessings may come day by day.
For in so doing may thou come to know more and more how Great is the
glory of the Father, through the Son. For, as He has given: "What ye ask in my name, Believing, that I
will give unto thee, that the Father may be Glorified in me and in
thee." Keep in the way thou hast set before thee, in the love of the
consciousness of the Christ in thine activities day by day. Doubt
not. Faint not in thine activities, for as He has given: "If ye
will draw night unto me, I will draw nigh unto thee."
And through Thee may there be the manifestations of God's love in
the earth, through the Father, through the hope, through the
activity of the fruits of the spirit in the earth. Let thy going in and thy coming out be acceptable in the sight of
Him who has promised to come and abide with those that love His
coming, love His glorifying in the earth through those promises He
has given into the keeping of the sons of men; that ye be kind, ye
be gentle, ye be in keeping with those things that thou knowest in
thine heart are well pleasing in the sight of the Father. For, thus
may the manifestations of that promised from the beginning be in
For, those that seek God and to know Him must believe that He is,
and He is a rewarder of those that diligently seek Him
Let thine heart be glad in the things thou hast seen in thine
experience of the glories of the Father, through the Son, in the
lives of those that thou hast contacted day by day. For, these are
but naught, wilt thou keep thine heart singing, keep thine life
pure, keep thy ways as His ways. For, He loveth and protecteth, and guideth and directeth those that
call on Him in faith, and Not for themselves alone, but rather that
self shall be effaced that the face of the Christ may shine more and
more in the lives of others. Keep the heart singing for the glories of the Christ child, in the
lives of the children, in the lives of the grown-ups, that thou meetest day by day. For, in His ways are the ways of the Father. For, as He gave, no man may do anything of himself, save as the
Father in His mercy has granted that through the love and through
the manifestations of His love in the earth may that increase of His
manifestations come into the experience and in the lives of those
that seek to do his biddings. Let thine life, in mind, in body, in soul, cry unto the Lord in
weakness, and in strength He will raise thee up. For, as He has
given, "They that seek in my name shall in no wise be cast out, and
he that giveth a cup of cold water in my name shall in no wise lose
Be not impatient that some glorious mighty thing has not been in
thine experience, for the experiences that thou has been awakened to
the abilities that may be made manifest through the love of the
Father, through the Christ, Without the thought of self, without the
desire for self-exaltation, only in such ways and manners may His
glory be wholly shown in thee. Keep in the way that thou knowest to do, for He requires not other
than that ye be true to that thou knowest in thine heart to do. For,
He calleth those by name that have named the name of the Christ and
that keep His ways, and through such may the love of the Father
through the Son be manifest in the earth. In thine understanding and in thine closeness in the love of the
Master, as He has called unto all that would know His ways, there
may come in thine experience those manifestations that make known
unto thine soul that thou hast been called to be a channel of
blessing to many. For, as the love of the Father is manifested in the earth through
the Son, so may self, becoming selfless in thy associations with
those that would bespeak of self-exaltation or self-glorification,
for of such is it said: "Though ye may do wonders in the earth in my
name, self may be abased." But those that glory in the love of the
Father through the Son, in Selflessness, may be exalted in the
manifestations in the earth. Let the words of thy mouth and the meditation of thine heart be
acceptable in the sight of Him that thou hast heard give: "Though I
go away, I will come again and receive you unto myself, that where I
am there ye may be also." And the greater love as was shown: "and Lo, I am with thee always,
even unto the end of the world."
What greater manifestations could there be in the inner soul of
anyone in a material plane than bespeak those things of the Son of
the Father in such a way and manner that those that hear may know
that thou hast indwelling in thine inmost soul the knowledge of the
Father, in the Son, and the Love of the Father to the sons of men! Keep the heart true to those things thou hast declared in thine
life. For, as there is seen in thine walks in and before man, so are
the judgments of what thou thinkest of the promises of the Son. For, as the Son would be glorified in thee, as the Son would glorify
the Father in the love as He has shown in the earth, abuse not those
gifts that are showered upon thee through the love of Him who has
said: "If ye will keep my commandments I will come and abide with
thee, and will guide thy footsteps lest thou stumblest."
Let the love of the Father in the Son guide thee. Be not impatient,
nor be thou longing for those things that are other than the love of
the Father in the Son that may be manifested in the glories that
thou hast had in knowing that thou hast been a channel, thou art a
channel, through which many approach the Throne of grace. And they, as He has promised, that have saved a soul from sin, from
perdition, have covered a multitude of sins, and their robes are
washed in the blood of the Lamb; and He knoweth thee by name, and He
calleth thee that thou wouldst keep the way that many may know that
the Father through the Son will come to those that seek to know His
face. First, know as to what are the purposes, the desires, the hopes.
There are in the present the problems that are a part of the
experience, but take things, conditions and circumstances where they
are, not merely where you wishfully think, hope or desire that they
Analyze, ever, thy
Know thy ideals. Put
them as upon the pedestal of hope, not as to worship before it, but
as the guiding light. Know the cause of all force or influence, but
let it be tempered with, first, thy ideal in spirit. Then with the
mind Build, and the result will bring harmony throughout the
experience. Keep to those purposes, those attitudes of helpful hopefulness; that
the opportunities accorded may be used in service to others. Such an
attitude kept in the mental forces will bring the Renewing of the
faith in the divine, which Is the heritage of every soul.
But what is thy purpose in thy
That ye yourself, your ego, may be merely satisfied or gratified?
Or is it that ye may gratify appetites or desires of thy body? Or,
are ye a channel through which the Creative Forces, God, Love, may
be manifested in the earth through the gift of the Son in the flesh?
that ye, in thy flesh, in thy body, may be a glorifying of those
ideals? That is the purpose of each soul.
Then, as ye apply, as ye mete out, remember, there are laws that are
unchangeable. Friendships beget friendships, love begets love.
Making self beautiful is to be beautiful in the lives of others, not
in self but of others. For, the basic principle of that love
manifested by the Son was ever: "Others, Lord, others."
What is thy purpose?
There must first be the purport, there must be the answer only
within self, as to whom ye will serve. Is it God or man? Is it self
or fame or fortune? Are there those grounds for common meeting of
For as the Teacher of teachers gave, as all who have pointed to a
service to their fellowmen, there is One God; or "The Lord thy God
That witness, that attesting, that direction then, is Only truly, in
the temple of self. Or, as has been given of old, "Who shall I say
has sent me? I Am That I Am!" That I Am then within self, responding
to the I Am That I Am, is indeed the psychic or soul or of the soul
self. To arouse such then to an active service is to manifest the
fruits of that spirit in conscious activity in a material world.
What then are these fruits? For the spirit itself may not be seen;
for God hath not at any time been seen by man, only the manifested
fruits of the spirit. Hence no hate, no dishonour; but patience,
long-suffering, brotherly love, kindness, gentleness; not exalting
of self but rather abasement of self that there may be the closer
union, the closer walk with that I Am That I Am. These be then those activities in
which each soul may engage in a conscious material world. Not saying
nor acting unkind things. No harsh words. None of these are a part
of the soul, that seeks for soul or psychic development.
Am I in my rightful place?
No man is in Any place save by the grace of God. Brighten the
corner, the place, the sphere where ye are. And when it is the time
or period for change, it will be shown thee.
How may I meet my opportunities and recognize them as they come?
In the application of those things; patience, persistence,
perseverance, love, gentleness, kindness. These are not mere words
but activities in which, in body, in mind, in purpose, one may
demonstrate that love, that truth, that life, that hope.
The greatest career of any wife is creating, making, building a
home. That is of such a nature, so attractive that it
becomes that it is intended and purposed to be, the greatest career
of any individual, which is permitted to the wife, is to build the
home in such a way and manner as to make it a retreat, as a place
where All of those
activities are such that it fills the longing that is in the heart
and soul of each and every individual who has taken a mate for such.
As to whether this can be combined with a career or not is dependent
upon the application of self in the directions of its abilities; for
it may be used as same. But Do Not let other associations or
affiliations make it rather as a place to hang the hat or to rest.
Build a home!
How much will ye put Into the service of that which presents itself
in the devious ways and manners? That's how much it has in store for
thee. As ye give, ye receive.
For: "The silver and the gold is
mine", saith the Lord, and "I will recompense him who would serve in
that that would make thine brother nearer to that understanding of
the relationship of man to man and man to the Maker".
Each entity, each individual Grows
or applies, or is meeting self in the varied experiences, as the
tenets of an individual experience are applied in this present
sojourn or activity.
By becoming aware in a material world was the only manner through
which spiritual forces might become aware of their separation from
spiritual surroundings. As the awareness comes by separation (which
is being manifested in materiality as we know it in the present),
there is the necessity of the sojourning in Each experience for the
developments of the influences necessary in each soul's environ,
each soul's attributes, to become again aware of being in the
Presence of the Father. Hence the reincarnation into this or that
influence, and those that are only aware of material or carnal
influences for a moment may be as Greatly impressed as were a finite
mind for a moment in the presence of Infinity. How long was the
experience of Saul in the way to Damascus? How long was the
experience of Stephen as he saw the Master standing, not sitting,
Standing? How long was the experience of those that saw the vision
that beckoned to them, or any such experience?
When one considers the birth of a soul into the earth, the more
often is the body and the body-mind considered than the soul, that
is full-grown in a breath. For, did the Father (or Infinity) bring
the earth, the worlds into existence, how much greater is a day in
the house of the Lord, or a moment in His presence, than a
thousand years in carnal forces? Hence a soul even for a flash, or
for a breath, has perhaps experienced even as much as Saul in the
Possible change of sex from one incarnation
In heaven you are not given into marriage, neither you are received
into marriage. Souls don't have sexes, what they have (if one has to
use an expression) is a soul may have a feminine or masculine
inclination. A soul when entering on earth for reincarnation the a
soul normally in the majority of times chooses the same sexual
orientation which the soul fells more comfortable with or the sexual
orientation which will allow, permit a better development of the
souls sojourn in the earth.
How oft has there been the expression heard, "Were I a man", or
"Were I a woman, I would do so and so? They do it!
That as is constantly builded in the mental being takes shape in the
home of the soul, whether to build that of the man or woman in a
material world; for man is so much a portion of the whole as to
either be a co-worker, a co-builder with the oneness of the force
called God, or a destroyer, and as these forces then are builded,
they take physical form through that experienced by the body of the
Individual (not the physical, but the Body of the individual, the
The soul is that everlasting portion of a body that is either
crowded into that (beings that are known as men and women) of small
or great stature.
As has been studied time and time again, as has been given in
relativity of force, in the active principle of the atomic
conditions that take place in the material and spiritual world, the
surroundings of the individual has Its influence, that is, it has
been long seen and known by man that the Laplander gradually attains
to a certain stature and build.
Why? The material surroundings are such that there is constantly
implanted in the soul of the entity that that is that necessary for
the best development through that individual plane, phase, place,
position, of such peoples.
Peoples seek, then, through that same channel through which it (the
soul) may develop, that as necessary for its experiences to bring
the perfect understanding of that oneness of which there has much
experiences in any individual sojourn may affect an entity in a
particular experience in the earth
Know that each sojourn or indwelling may be compared to that as ye
have in your mental experience as a lesson, as a schooling for the
purposes for which each soul-entity enters an earth experience; and
why an entity under such environments came into that experience.
Each study of each lesson then adds some phase of development for
the soul. And each merits then the opportunity; for it has been
given as to the graciousness of the divine oneness in not willing
that any soul should perish or lose sight of its identity or lose
its hold upon those purposes for each soul's entrance into an
But as should be from every individual, there should be agreement
between those individuals in such relationships and only when there
is such should there be the relationships. For the lack of such
agreement brings more discordant notes between individuals than any
portion of relationships with the opposite sex. The disagreements
may be very slight at times, but they grow. For these relationships
are the channels for the activity of creative forces and not by mere
chance. Let not those things of the nature of gossip hinder thee,
for it is best to trust a soul and that questioning than to doubt
that soul which if believing would bless thy life with true meaning.
This should be the attitude in thy relationships with all of the
individuals with whom you may come in contact that were associated
with thee. For ye will meet many of them and there will be question
marks behind their activities. But remember as He gave, if ye would
have friends show thyself friendly; if ye would have love, be loving
to others. For like begets like.
The activities in making for betterments of relationships by the
tenets or the fruits of the spirit: kindness, gentleness, patience,
long-suffering, brotherly love, practically applied in the material
and in the mental life. These are well. Against these there are no
laws. They Are the law of the mental being of an individual, and may
grow, may add to all that is worthwhile.
In activities in the social, the material relationships, be ever
creative and not too caustic to any. Do not allow your relationships
to bring hate, nor fear, nor jealousy, nor malice in thy manner and
way of treating others.
Study of religion
Study Varieties of Religious Experience, and the correlating of the
varied religions, not for their differences but for their accordings
one with another.
Remember the promise He has given: "If ye abide with me, I will
bring to thy remembrance All Things From The Foundation of the
World!" What a vision, that ye yourself, through that promise,
that power, may know; not only how ye have acted towards others but
may gain a glimpse, even as ye find here in this individual's
concept, of Thy vibration, and as to how ye have affected others.
The Resurrection of Jesus, the
The significance of the resurrection of Jesus, the Christ.
The life, the death, the resurrection of Jesus are as facts, in the
hearts and minds of those here. The resurrection of Jesus, the
Christ, is a significant fact to each individual only according to
how he applies same (as it is significant to him) in his daily life,
experience and conversation with his fellow man.
Then, in a material world, a world of hate, of divided opinions,
what is the course that you each will pursue, in relationships to
your fellow men?
Is it the course outlined by the tenets, the principles which He,
the Teacher of teachers gave as respecting the manner of life, of
activity, that you each would give in your dealings and
relationships with your fellow men?
We know, and only need to be reminded, that the whole law is in Him.
For, as He gave that which is the basis, the principle, of the
intent and desire and purpose which should prompt our activity, so
we in our own world, as we live, as we speak, as we pray, are to
let it be in that tempo, in that way and manner which was prompted
by Him, as He taught His disciples how to pray.
Then, as we analyze this prayer in our experience, we see what the
life, the death, the Resurrection of Jesus, the Christ, Who is the
Way, the Truth, the Light, must mean in this period in the
experience of man.
Think not that He, God, will be mocked. For, whatsoever a man soweth,
that must he also reap. This was truly exemplified in the life of
the Man of Galilee.
For, in Him we all live, we all move, we all die. So, in Him we are
all made alive.
Then: Put away hate, malice, jealousy, or the taking sides with any
that stir up strife.
Be ye rather on the Lord's side. Knowing that no man is in any
position of power or might save by the will of the Father, that
there may be fulfilled that which has been promised of Him, by Him,
and through that advent of the man
Jesus into a material world.
Then, as ye meditate upon the meaning of the Resurrection of this
man of God, know that the way is open to thee to approach the throne
of God; not as an excuse, not as a justification, but rather in
love, in harmony, in that which brings hope for a sin-sick world.
Each individual, then, may act, may live, may pray, in his or her
own little sphere of activity, in such a manner as to bring peace
and harmony, even among those who Appear to be at variance to the
cause of the Christ in the material world.
Let not thy heart be troubled, then. Ye believe in God; believe also
in Him, who came to bring peace, and the way to the Father,
exemplifying same in the ability to take away death, that is as sin
in the experience of man.
And thus may he (man) indeed love the Lord with all his heart, and
his neighbour as himself.
Every phase of human experience and human relationship must be taken
into consideration; that we Are our brother's keeper. Then if those
in position to give of their means, their wealth, their education,
their position, Do Not take these things into consideration, there
must be that leveling that will come. For unless these are
considered, there must eventually become a revolution, and there
will be a dividing of the sections as one against another. For these
are the leveling means and manners to which men resort when there is
the plenty in Some areas and a lack of the sustenance in the life of
others. These are the manners in which such things as crime, riots
and every nature of disturbance arise, in that those who are in
authority are not considering every level, every phase of human
activity and human experience.
There are no short cuts to righteousness, and the call is ever that
as He gave: "A new commandment, that ye love one another," filling
the whole purpose of His activity and lesson in materiality. The
first was: "Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy body, thy
mind, thy soul, thy neighbour as thyself." This is the whole law.
Grace is that ye love one another.
