Heaven the Other World
The Teachings of Christ our Lord and God
is Meant by Life Eternal
Life Eternal - One with
that Oneness, as is seen by the Soul becoming One with the Will, the
Spirit, of the Father. Even as is shown in the ensample of the Man called Jesus the Christ,
the Saviour of the World, through compliance to those same laws, as
He complied with. For with that Force, that Spirit, brought in the World, then becomes
the Truth: "What thou asketh in My name, believing in thine heart,
same shall be unto thee."
Beautiful is the life
and the feet of those who walk in the paths of the righteous One.
The Heavens open and I see Him stand at that Way which leads unto
Life Everlasting; That then the Way, the Truth, the Light, the Water
of Life, the Man made Perfect in that Spirit of Him who gave Himself
as the ransom for many.
In this is the ransom then: Making self of low estate, as is called
in man's realm. All powerful - yet
never using that power, save to help, to assist, to give aid, to
give succour to someone who is not in that position to help or aid
Know that life is a continuous experience, and as there is a
consciousness in sleep that is not physical - in the sense of
physical awareness - so there is a consciousness in
the same manner when the physical is entirely laid aside.
He indeed is the resurrection and this life. In Him do we put our
trust. Then there should not be sorrow and sadness in those periods
when the physical turmoil's and strife's of the body
are laid aside, for the moment, for the closer walk with Him. For
indeed to be absent from the material body is to be present with the
Let those admonitions and those promises, then, fill thy life - and
so determine within selves that ye will walk the closer with Him day
And then when the shadows, as here, begin to close about, and there
is the meeting at the river, there will be indeed no sorrow when
this barque puts out to sea.
Understand the Creator
One first must understand
self and its relations to its fellow man.
It will then understand
its relation to its Maker, and will then be in that position to give
to others and build self therein.
How understand Self
The relation as is
received through: "My Spirit beareth witness with Thy Spirit as to
whether Thou be the Son of God or not."
When thou walkest in that
way that leads to the everlasting thou hast that
understanding. "Seek and
Ye shall find. Knock and it shall be opened unto you."
In this existence, and in
the present plane, with that understanding of the higher law get the
understanding of self between the Creation, or its fellow man, and
thou will get the thorough understanding of how the relation is
between self and Maker, and can lead and guide others therein,
through Psychic, Spirit force, and through the universal law of
"like attracts like", relativity of force.
Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and
rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal:
But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither
moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break
through nor steal:
For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.
The light of the body is the eye: if therefore thine eye be
single, thy whole body shall be full of light.
But if thine eye be evil, thy whole body shall be full of
darkness. If therefore the light that is in thee be darkness,
how great is that darkness!
man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and
love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the
other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon.
The Kingdom of the Father
The consciousness of His force, power, activity, in every element of
action on the part of those who without thought of self have opened
the way for the activity of the Christ Consciousness in the material
world; for only those of material thought or material activities may
demonstrate or bring to the consciousness of the individuals in
material life as to what is the activity, the spiritual essence in
Let's illustrate, then, in an
everyday act of an individual: As is known of all, water is a
necessary element in the material forces for the sustaining of life
in the material plane; hence this element often is called the mother
How does water, then, supply that
which nourishes in this material plane? Being made up of elements in
itself that are the essence of that which may truly be called
spiritual in itself, it gives that association or connection between
the spiritual forces acting in the material elements of the earth,
or material forces; hence in entering in the kingdom of the Father
is knowing and following and Being those elements that supply the
needs of that which builds in the material plane towards the
continuity of the spiritual forces manifest in the earth.
So, one enters, then, through that
door with the Saviour, that brings that necessary force in the life
of others, and in saving others saves self.
How came the Son of man the way that leads to perfection in heaven
and in earth? In overcoming the forces in nature and in earth, by
giving of self for others; hence becoming the Saviour of others
becomes the Son and one with the Father.
The Manifestations of the Father
The fruits of the spirit. Gentleness, kindness, the loving word,
patience, hope, persistence, and - above all - consistency in thy
acts and in thy speech. Be ye glorious in thine activity. Be ye
joyous in thy words. For, Happy is the man that knoweth that his
life bespeaks that the Son and the Spirit of Truth directs the words
and the activities of his body!
The protection of the Father
and His goodness in manifestation in the Earth
As He has given from the beginning, "If ye will be my children, I
will be your God." So, as individuals, in the application of that
known in their experience as to what the will of the Father is, go
about Thinking - and Thinking it in such a manner that the words of
the mouth and the activity of the hand bespeak the will of the
Father; then this activity, this thought, makes the individual the
channel through which the manifestations are in the earth.
For, who may know in the earth the heart of the mother save a
Who may know the will of the Father, God, save those that put into
the acts of their hands, in the thoughts of their minds, those
things that He has given and as He shows forth in the experience of
all men from day to day?
So simple, then, is it to know the Father that all stumble in that
they Think of themselves more highly than they ought to think. Be
rather as a channel through which the Father may make His love, His
glory, manifest in the earth.
Listen to the voice from within. For, He is very nigh unto each of
you, if ye will but look Within. And that thou experienceth with the
desire that thy self be nothing, that the Father, the Christ, may be
glorified in the earth, brings to the experience of all the
consciousness of being a manifestation of the love of the Father to
the sons of man.
God and His Manifestations in
For, as He has given, ye may call "Lord, Lord," even may heal the
sick, cast out demons even in His name, and yet not be accepted in
His sight; for by the fruits ye shall know them that are called of
the Lord, in the ways and manners
that His manifestations are through the lives of the individuals
that make profession in their life Of their associations; but if
their life and the fruits of their lives bring not forth greater
manifestations, and those things that are of the spirit, the fruits
of the spirit, then they are none of His.
Not everyone that saith "Lord, Lord," but he that doeth the will of
the Father, the same is acceptable in His sight. What, then, are the
manifestations of the Father in the earth? That ye do good unto all
peoples, and that the fruits of the spirit are manifested in thy
thoughts, in thy acts day by day as ye meet thy fellow men in their
own conditions where troubles, doubts, fears, distresses arise.
And as there is given those things into their experience from thine
own desire to be the channel through which the manifestations of the
spirit of the Christ, of the Christ Consciousness, may be in the
experience of such individuals, thy words and thy acts are in
keeping with that He, the Father, makes manifest in the earth
through the Son - as He in His life made manifest in His walks in
the earth, doing good to those whether they were of His fold or
those that even rejected that He had done rather as an experience in
Then, as they each may manifest in the thought, in the application
of those truths as He gave, they may come to those experiences
wherein they oft may be as a lamp to the feet of the wayward, as an
aid to those who seek, as a light to those that have gone astray, as
a guiding hand to those that would know more and more of the love of
the Father as it manifests in the acts, the thoughts, the lives of
For all is born first in spirit, then in mind, then it may become
manifested in the material plane. For God moved and the heavens and
the earth came into being. God is spirit. Man with his soul, that
may be a companion to the Creative Forces, is of that same source.
Thus to grow in grace and knowledge, one applies, one has, one uses
one's spiritual self.
And with what spirit we apply, we grow also in mind and in body.
Father, Son and Holy Spirit
Each individual will find itself body, mind and soul. There are in
the three-dimensional applications of influence outside of self,
Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
Then, of course, there is the mental-body, as well as the soul-body.
These are not visible to the normal eye and yet this body may
discern about others not merely their own mental bodies but that
such a body-mind uses in its application of physical, mental and
Then, in the study of self there is the recognition that there are
forces outside of self, there are forces and influences within self.
The true God-forces meet within, not without self.
For when there are altars builded outside, which individuals
approach for the interpretation of law, whether it be physical,
mental or spiritual, these are temptations. It is concerning such
that warnings were given to the peoples.
Others may say, "Oh, that's the old Jewish conception of it," but be
ye Jew, Gentile, Greek, Parthenian or what, the law is One - as God
And the first command is: "Thou shalt have no other gods before me."
Begin first and analyze thyself, thy purposes. Know that thy body,
thy mind, thy soul are One. Thy body is the Temple. Treat it as such
- the Temple of God. Don't abuse it, don't misuse it, but - in mind
and in spirit, as well as in physical outlook - keep it as a place
worthy of thy Father-God, and thy Saviour, the Christ, meeting with
thee in that Body, that Mind, that Soul.
Then, know in what ye believe - and know who is the author of same.
His purpose has been: "If ye Love me, ye will keep my Commandments,
and if ye keep my Commandments I and the Father will come and abide
Then be consistent in thy choices of that which will be thy source,
thy understanding. For if the Lord thy God be with thee, who may be
Kingdom of Heaven
Know that the kingdom of heaven is
within, and that the kingdom of God is without; and these are the
kingdoms to which ye alone would give allegiance - and thy
characters the same.
Children of the Holy One
What would one describe, then, as the
essence of a sunset, the essence of the beauty of a rose, the
essence of friendship, the essence of love? These are indicated in
what was given to be part of the offering upon the altar in the holy
of holies when there were certain combinations given that were to be
offered as the sacrifice, as a sweet odour unto the Lord.
Then, what is that sweet odour in peoples' lives? It is what may be
indicated as the essence of love, hope, beauty.
These are those things in which people often excel and others pay
little attention, yet are influenced by them and it is not known
why. Individuals who live such lives, then, and with all the
emotions of nature and of the material world, are indeed those who
may be called the children of the Holy One.
Good and Evil
For the material, at best, is only temporal, or temporary, while
that which may be builded from spiritual desire, spiritual purposes,
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.
Keeping self, physically, mentally, and spiritually, fit - for in
service is the greater blessings given, and in the application of
self to meet the needs of every condition there is given the way of
escape, will one [if one will] rely upon those promises given in Him
who gave, "I have set before thee good and evil. Choose thou Whom
thou will serve, for no man can serve two masters," and in the day
when the sun goeth down bring thy gifts to Him who said, "Come unto
me, for I have prepared the place, that where I am there YE may be
Keep the law as is befitting to man's relations to God. Keep self
unspotted from the world. Not as eye service, but as Service of the
heart to the Maker.
Purpose of Life
Know that the spirit is willing, but the flesh at times is weak.
What aids body? What aids the better understanding? The keeping of
the mental attitude that is ever constructive in the experience, and
in the relationships with the problems not only of the moment but of
others in Their daily relationships. Know that these must be as a
Coordinant thing, as a Practical thing, as a Consistency - in daily
living, daily speech, daily activity - with the Spiritual ideal.
Know that the purpose for which each soul enters a material
experience is that it may be as a light unto others; not as one
boastful of self or of self's abilities in any phase of the
experience, whether mental or material, but living, being in spirit
that which Is ideal and not idealistic alone, nor the unattainable.
For, as He hath given - if ye would know the Spirit, or God, search
for Him; for happy ye will find Him.
Thus - in that consciousness of daily living and being that which is
in keeping with the ideal - life and its problems becomes not a
burden, but opportunities - for the greater expressions and
expansions of self in knowing that as ye sow daily the fruit of the
spirit, ye need not worry nor fret thyself as to its growth. God
giveth the increase.
Hence be not weary in well-doing.
In the practical application, then - this should be in any forms in
which there is the physical activity that deals not merely with the
vanity of the individual as to dress, but rather as in relationships
with individuals or groups such that what ye would prepare for them
brings to their awareness That For Which The Individual and The
Group Stands - as a creative thing!
Giving that to others in such a measure makes for the awareness that
the entity is ever being in that of a constructive attitude or
In meeting the problems, if there is the air of appealing to vanity
or the ego alone, it will and does become a burden; but if it is in
that air, that manner in
which it becomes as a creative influence in the experience of the
entity, it is well.
