manner in which all heard in their various tongues the message
that was given by Peter in the one tongue. Acts 2:4 This was the
activity of the spirit, and what the spirit indeed meant and means
in the experiences of the individuals during that period. For one
that was of Cyrene heard a mixture of the Greek and Aryan tongue;
while, though Peter spoke in the Arabic, those that were of the
Hebrews heard in the Hebrew language; those in Greek heard in
God is Spirit, and seeks such to worship Him in spirit and in
is God of All; not just a chosen few who may appear to have more
intellectual or physical or mental abilities than others. For, as
He once gave, there were many righteous in the days of Elijah; yet
to one, an unbeliever, was the man of God sent. There were many
lepers in the days of Elisha, yet by the kindness, for the
appreciation of kindness shown, was Naaman healed. So, in
thine own experience, in the offices as a teacher, consider these, and be wise, in Him. For, the love of God as made manifest in
the souls of human beings in the earth, is as old as the earth
itself. For, God is not the respecter of persons, but of those who
seek to Do, to know, His will with man. For, as He hath
given, he that would be the greatest among you, he that would be
favoured by the mercy of a loving Father Will and does measure to
others that he seeks his God, his loving Father, to measure to
him. And indeed it becomes a law, in not only the material but the
mental and spiritual realms, "As ye sow, so shall ye
is thy God?
thy ambitions only set in whether ye shall eat tomorrow, or as to
wherewithal ye shall be clothed? Ye of little faith, ye of little
hope, that allow such to become the paramount issues in thine own
consciousness! Know ye not that ye are His? For ye are of His
making! He hath willed that ye shall not perish, but hath left it
with thee as to whether ye become even aware of thy relationships
with Him or not. In
thine own house, in thine own body there are the means for the
approach, through the desire first to know Him; putting that
desire into activity by purging the body, the mind of those things
that ye know or even conceive of as being hindrances, not what
someone else says! It
isn't what you want someone else to give! As Moses gave of old, it
isn't who will descend from heaven to bring you a message, nor who
would come from over the seas, but Lo, ye find Him within thine
own heart, within thine own consciousness! If ye will Meditate,
open thy heart, thy mind! Let thy body and mind be channels that
Ye may Do the things ye ask God to do for you! Thus ye come to
God Speaks to Thee
Take Exodus 19:5. To be sure, it is interpreted by many here
that the Creative Forces or God are speaking to a peculiar people. You were one of
them. Why not, then, today? Although through the years your name
has been changed, the soul is the same. Hence this is, as it
were, spoken to thee.
Study then, also the 14th, 15th, 16th and 17th of John as it
speaks to thee, and as to how ye may apply thyself in the
intuition, the walks with divine influences.
Then take the 30th of Deuteronomy, where there is the admonition
as to the source, that it's not from somewhere else, but it is
within thine own self. For that influence of the Creative Force
is so near, yea closer even than thy own hand!
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.
Relationship with God
First there must be the finding of self, then; realizing there
cannot be one relation with thy fellow man and another with thy
Maker, not one expressed in words and another lived in the inner
life. But know, "Know O Israel the Lord thy God is One!"
These sounded, these kept within, ye may rise to those abilities
to give, to measure out, to become a channel through which many
may call thee blessed!
Study then to know thy relationship to thy Maker. But Know Who
is thy Lord, thy God!
Child of God
The startling thing
to every soul is to awaken to the realization that it is indeed
a child of God! That is startling enough for any man, any woman,
any being, in this sin-sick world!
And yet it is the heritage of every soul to awake to that
consciousness that God indeed is mindful of the children of men,
and calls ever, "If ye will be my children,
I will be thy God."
This is the message, then, that you shall carry; for there is a
loving Father that cares. That is thy message!
speaks with the sons of men
He too, may walk no longer in the shadow of doubt and fear but
know truly there is a rod in Jessie (Isaiah 11:1), the Father
would speak with the sons of men; and His Son has led the way so
oft in the earth over and above the teachers that have come into
the earth from generation to generation; He will walk with thee
and guide thy hand, if ye will but choose the Lord while He may
yet be found.
If the purposes and the aims are for an exalting of the powers
of the Creative Forces rather than of self in the present
experience; in application of the abilities and the
opportunities of those things that are to be the experiences of
the self during this experience or sojourn in the earth.
As to the purposes, then, for the soul's forces entering into
matter in the beginning: That there might be a comprehending of
how material forces acted upon spiritual, or Spirit, endeavour
of an entity, a soul. For, here we would give the variation
between the mental mind of an earth being and the spirit that
occupies its space in that man calls space. For, it must be learned or comprehended within thine
consciousness as a being, in a finite force of activity, that
time and space are one; and the divisions of these have been set
in human experience and human endeavour that there might be the
destruction of the physical forces that the spiritual might
catch here a line, there a line, here a precept, there a
precept, that there might be gained more and more that
consciousness that is sought by the inmost recesses of this
entity's desire, and again lived in the present in such a way
and manner that the fruits of the spirit may be in thine own
Self must become selfless
For, self must become selfless, and the spirit must become
magnified in the
relationships of the individual's activity in its meeting with
the fellow man; whether this is in relationship to seeking to
know how the response of spirit or spirituality in the
experience of another soul acts upon it in its environ, in its
surrounding, in its journey back to its Creator, or what not.
For, as given of old (and let these be not as platitudes in
thine own experience), as a man, as a heart, as an experience is
sown, so shall the harvest be, according to the application of
those things that make for growth in the realm of that sought. For, to say "Do good" unto thy neighbour and then stand aside
and see what will happen when others act in this or that way and
manner does not bring an experience to self; for only through
experience may the soul, the mind, the heart, the body, become
aware of the effect of any application of the law of continuity
of force, continuity of life, or of forces that make for growth
in the experience of a soul.
Then, know: As ye sow, so shall ye reap. And in the material
world there stands in the laws of the Creative Influences only
"Thou shall love the Lord thy God with all thine heart, thine
mind and thine soul," and the second is likened unto it: With
the body and with the attributes of same, manifest to thine
brother that law of God, and see in him, in thine brother, in
the weakest among thine associates, in the weakest among thine
companions, that spirit of God which if magnified will make for
a growth of the Soul in thine brother, that it may be found in
the way that leads to life, to light, to immortality for that
soul. And he that saves a soul has experienced, and does experience,
that realm of joy, peace, solace, understanding, that may only
come to those who have experienced in saving, in directing, in
blessing, a soul. For, the soul of self, as the soul of thine
brother, is seeking its way, its journey, to its Maker.
The birthright of every soul, as given by its Creator is coming
into a material plane, is the same as for self; that it may
experience the fruits of the spirit that may be manifested in a
manifestation of life in a material or earth plane.
As to the development of the psychic forces, the spiritual
actuality in the experience of the entity in its sojourn from
its environs, that is experiences have brought in the earth
plane, this has been set before self, and, as has been seen, has
been kept well balanced in the experience of the soul self; so
that, as the seeking then comes into spiritual things, these as
is seen and as must be known, may not be put into the crucibles
of materiality. They may not be measured in or by the ways of the finite forces,
or the finite mind, but rather they are measured by the
consciousness of the spirit, of the way that was given and that
has been given and is the standard of excellency to this
material world, in the life and in the experience of Jesus, the
Christ, who thought it not robbery to make himself equal with
God, yet found himself of no estate; rather enjoying the
experiences of his brethren in every walk of life, and using
those experiences in such a way and manner that naught could be
said of the life of the man, and naught could be said in the
experiences of those that knew Him best, other than "He went
about doing good." So, in self, in self's experience, in self's application of the
spirituality of self, know that He gives His angels charge
concerning thee, and that they will bear thee up in the
experiences that ye have in a material plane, if ye will but
keep the heart, the mind, the soul, Singing the praises of a
For, "God of the fathers be with us yet, lest we forget" that He
is the God of the living and not of the dead!
In the application of self, then, as to the developments in the
present experiences and in keeping that balance in body, in
mind, in soul, in the activities of the self in this present
sojourn, first seek to know self as to what is the impelling
desire in thine inner self.
Take counsel with soul, and let this be as thy first experience
in thine psychic self; for psychic, as given, is but a name, yet
its metes and bounds take hold upon the mental, the material and
the spiritual things in the experience of every soul! But ask in
self, "What Is my purpose? What Is my desire? Is it an
experience that I may exalt my inner self? or that I may glorify
my Maker, my Redeemer, my Lord, my Master?" And get the answer
from the mental self!
Enter into meditation
Then enter into meditation, in the wee hours of the morning,
when the world at large is quiet, when the music of the spheres
and the morning stars sing for the glory of the coming day, and
ask the soul; and let the spirit of self answer. Audibly? Yea,
within thine own heart will come the answer Yea or Nay.
Then, when thou hast made thine own skirts clear, thine own soul
clean, until He answers within thee that thou, having chosen the
better part, may be given the application or the privilege of
using the talents thou hast developed in thine experiences. For, as indicated in that which has been meted or measured to
thee, the purposes are well, if the intents are kept just as
clean. For they would bring in the experience of thine brother,
and thy neighbour, the more abundant life, and the more
abundant understanding of the relationships of the creature to
the Creator, and the Way of the Creator with the creature.
The Father hath given such a leeway to the sons of men that no
force, no impelling force, unless sought or desired, and no
activities in the material world, in the mental world, might be
given. Then, if thine activities are such as to not belie that
spoken in the mind or by the word of mouth, He will be thy
guide, as thou wilt be His son. Not that thine experience in the field of activity may be
entirely different from that of thine next door neighbour, but
find not fault in thine friend nor in thine enemy; for, hath not
He, the Father, allowed the tares and the wheat to grow up
together? Be not as one that would tell the Father, the Creator,
as to who the tares are, or as to when such a tare should be
Be thou rather found in the way of Blooming, of bringing forth
fruit worthy of a son that has been endowed with the privileges
of manifesting the spirit that He has shed abroad in the earth
through the gift to the world of the Babe in Bethlehem, that
grew in stature, in body, in mind, and then manifested the love
of God in the way that He went about doing good to those that
sought; yea, those that asked in the Father's name! For, ever
were the blessings to the individuals in accordance to the
desire of the soul. Then, in applying self, my son, know that the Father liveth in
thee, and will rightly guide thee in thy seeking and in thine
steps day by day, if thou hast prepared His temple in thee for
the place that He may abide.
If thou keepest the temple cluttered up with those things that
bespeak rather of the flesh, only the flesh can answer - but if
thou keepest the temple clean and decorated in the spirit of
love, and in the light of truth, then it will shed its light
abroad, even as He has given, "I will not leave thee comfortless
but will come and abide with thee, that ye may be my children
and I will be your god."
Then, in seeking those things that will make for the greater
understanding in thine present experience, let thy yeas be yea
in the Lord, thy nays be nay in the Lord, and thy days will be
long in the earth, and many will call thee blessed in His name;
for the way is set before thee, and it is not past finding out.
Doubt not, but seek. Seek in His name.
God speaks directly to men
Know this that the highest possible psychic realization, is to
be aware that God, the Father, speaks directly to the sons of
men, even as He has promised.
Study same, then, with that same knowledge as was given of old,
that God the Father speaks to Himself through man and man's
activities in the earth. The spirit is of the Father, and all
force is of God.
God, The Father and His Manifestations in the Hearth
That the manifestations in the earth that are good (and there
are some that call All good) are of God, and the variations in
the manifestations, and the ability to discern that which will
lead to the light or to God, and that away from the knowledge of
God is an all-wise, all-inclusive, all-manifesting force in the
experience of man. The Father is that loving Influence in the
experience of those that seek Him. God is a fact. The Father:
those that seek may know. The manifestations: how and what they
God is One
The Lord thy God is One! And the Christ, the Saviour, died for
all, Not for one! no sect, no schism, no ism, no cult. For, the
first to meet the Lord in peace was he that was also crucified.
That should, in each heart, make those who have named the Name,
and who claim God as the Father, Jesus Christ as the elder
brother, know that no sacrifice is too great in order that the
glory, the honour of the Lord may be demonstrated, manifested
The entity's experiences have made for those activities in the
present both good and bad. For we meet ourselves constantly. For
the law of love, the law of mercy, the law of grace is that no
soul should perish but that All should Know the face of their
Maker!Hence there is given each soul an advocate with the
Father, in the Son. And He bears with thee! if thou dost hold to
Him as thy guide; not only believing but rather acting like you
What is good?
How is such defined in thy life, of awakening to all the
possibilities that exist in thy intake of life and its phases?
To do good is to think constructively, to think creatively. What
is creative, what is constructive, ye may ask? That which never
hinders, which never makes for the bringing of any harm to
For, know, good alone lives on!
That of a nature which causes resentments, distrust, animosity,
is already cut from that which is Creative. It is true that it
may have its place in the experience of others, but it is much
like the nail driven in the post. The nail, the hindrance, may
be removed, but the scar remaineth. It is weakened by the might
or force. The Creative Force, or God, is not in the tempest nor
in the storm, nor in the loud noise, nor even in the rumbles or
rumours. But that which is helpful, the more oft, is in the
Still Small Voice Within.
What is gospel?
News, tidings, understandings; that which bespeaks the sounding
of warning, knowledge, awakening; if there will be the
considering in the mind of the hearer. Gospel. Glad tidings.
There must be the choosing of individuals who are to fulfil
certain stations or places in the distribution of the ideals
pertaining to preparation for better living and better
facilities. Grow in strength, in power, in ability to aid
others. The abilities lie in the direction of an organizer or
organizations, or as a go-between between the producer and the
distributor of those things as may be produced from the
facilities of those who have the creative ideas and ideals.
Then, as a leader or organizer the individual may find the
greater outlet for the abilities; yet there are principles that
need to be applied in the daily life in its relationships one to
another. There are the laws that are unchangeable, and that are
ever creative and constructive in their influence. For,
otherwise there are turmoils that overtake those who disregard
same, that are unseen and not easily found by material
reasoning. For, they are the results of thoughts. Know that
thoughts are things, and as their currents run they may become
crimes or miracles. Are thy thoughts always prompted by the
desire to be of help to others? or are they the more often
prompted by the desire to use Others as thy stepping-stones to
better things for thyself? This can only be answered in self,
according to what is thy ideal. Who is the author of thy ideal?
Then study to keep that as may find expression in the present in the
creative for spiritual attitudes, and not in the dictatorial
For all, as has been given, are as one before the throne of
grace and mercy and peace and justice. For God is not the
respecter of persons or of places or positions. For to fulfil
that purpose for which an entity, a being, has manifested in
matter is the greater service that can possibly be rendered. Is
the oak the lord over the vine? Is the Jimson beset before the
tomato? Are the grassy roots ashamed of their flower beside the
rose? All those forces in nature are fulfilling rather those
purposes to which their Maker, their Creator, has called them
into being. Man, is in that position where he may gain the
greater lesson from nature, and the creatures in the natural
world; they each fulfilling their purpose, singing their song,
filling the air with their perfume, that they, too, may honour
and praise their Creator; though in their humble way in
comparison to some, they each in their Own humble way are
fulfilling that for which they were called into being,
reflecting, as each soul, as each man and each woman should do
in their particular sphere, Their concept of their Maker!
Gratifying, Satisfying Appetites, Self-indulgence
For it, to do such, is the birthright of every soul; and they
that sell their birthright for the gratifying or satisfying of
appetites or self-indulgence, or self-glory do so to their own
gratifyings in Venus as to appetites of body, of mind, of
purposes. For those pertaining to the mind (which is the builder
in spirit as well as in flesh, or the earth) must be applied in
correlation one with another.
Don't let thy knowledge be thy undoing, but do the first things
first. Know in Whom ye believe and in what ye believe,
spiritually. Know from whence ye came and whither ye go.
For if ye become as anxious about using thyself for the purpose
for which ye entered, ye will not be so anxious about where you
are going. For remember, it is only self ye are meeting that
causes anxieties or any character of trouble. For thou hast been
from the beginning. It is up to thee as to whether ye continue. The soul that sins shall be cut off, the soul that sins
purposefully, that doesn't use the opportunities given by
manifestations in life. And what is the law of the Lord? "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
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.
No use grumbling to everyone else because things are not just
like you wish them or because they are not just right for
yourself in any particular field of activity or service. Don't
impose upon others. For, "As ye would that men should do to you,
do ye even so to them" should be not merely a saying but a daily
practice in the entity's experience.
know, they that have saved a soul from self-indulgence, from
self-destructive influence, and guided such a one towards the
light of the new hope in the promises from Him from above, have
covered a multitude of sin.
change should one make, to ones habits?
is within the individual self. That necessary to make one's self
wholly in accord with that known by self to be the correct
attitude toward self, family, neighbour, associates, social and
business, and keep self unspotted from censure by the own
It is well that each in the study of of Happiness as applied in
your personal experiences think, too, on the difference between
Pleasure and Happiness. It is like the spiritual and the
material. We oft see things beautiful, and they come out of that
which may be very murky, very bad-appearing yet that necessary
for the beauty.
Only when one has lost sight of self, in the
appreciation of the love, beauty and hope in the Creative Forces
and their activity, may one indeed know Happiness.
That which gratifies only the sensuous self, or as an
aggrandizement of physical pleasure, Rarely brings Happiness.
Out of the dregs of same may Grow Happiness, but in themselves
they are only passing.
To illustrate: The road to Gethsemane, to the minds of those who
look upon their own Gethsemane, was as a road of thorns; the
perspiration, the sweat of blood and all appear anything but
Happiness, yet the kind words spoken, even on the way to
Calvary, were indeed those that brought Happiness.
And as there were the words from the Cross, these, though filled
with all of the horrors of spite, fear, by the very activities
of others, were such as to bring Happiness into the hearts and
minds of those who seek to know His Way.
It is again as Infinite Love and Divine Love. Infinite Love is
the love of God, while Love Divine is that manifested by those
in their activities who are guided by love divine. These bring
Happiness and the experiences of joy; not mere pleasure, not
gratification of any of the material things. But differentiate,
or, as has been given, put the proper value upon the proper
phases of one's experience.
Because we see one smile, or with the outward appearance of
pleasures and the gratifying of the worldly seekings, does not
always indicate Happiness. The gratifying of the worldly
seekings may bring pleasures, but very rarely indeed do such
pleasures bring Happiness with them. For it is indeed as has
been said, there are ways oft that appear to be good but the end
thereof is death, separation, dissension, anger, all those
things that make for strife.
Happiness, then, is of love divine; manifesting in the
experiences as one gives a cup of water in His name, that may
bring much greater Happiness than to he that taketh a city, or
to he that ruleth even a nation. You each are endowed, to be
sure, with power only from one source, but to know Happiness,
then, is to do the biddings of the Father; or as He gave, "If ye
love me, keep my commandments (John 14:15) they are not
grievous." (I John 5:3)
Bring the joy and
happiness of the Lord in Jesus!
Then, as the suffering of the Master brought Happiness to Him
and to thee, so indeed out of thy disappointments, thy trials,
thy tribulations, do ye know Happiness.
Such then is that as given in the affirmation; and again is it
illustrated in that as you see it in and as you do it to your
fellow man, so may the measures of Happiness and joy be yours.
For, "As ye do it unto the least, ye do it unto me," ever has
been, ever is the relationship-conditional. And in the loss of
doing or being for self, but rather for the glory of God, does
the knowledge and the wisdom and Happines come. They that know
not what have been the measures given for the bringing of life
into existence know not the Happiness nor the joys therein. They
that have known not the sorrows, the disappointments for
Righteousness' sake, know not the joy and the Happiness in the
Lord. Hence as has been the warning to many: Look not upon the
things of the world and the pleasures of things therein as a
measure or standard as to the joy and the Happiness in the Lord. If you completely
surrender yourselves to God's will, and become a channel of
blessings to others, you then possess true Happiness. Study to
show thyself approved, not finding fault, even as thy Master did
not; making the proper evaluations in the experience of self and
in others. These keep and make for harmonies, if reasoned
together. Let the ways of mercy and justice, as ye meted it to
those in Galilee, to those in Bethsaida, to those in Bethany, as
ye gave counsel to those in the days when turmoils were arising
and those oppressions from the political forces made for
dissensions, be thy counsel in the present. And this has been
given in ways that, studied, meditated upon, will open new
vistas of possibilities to the self.
ever that as of the constructive; that is, knowing there is much
for thee to do as a witness for the Creative Forces, for God, for
Christ. These ye manifest by thy relationships with thy fellow
man. Be happy: be in that attitude of ever being helpful to
others. These will bring that peace within that is the promise
Study to show thyself approved unto God. Find harmony in self
and ye may bring it into the experience of others.
as was given, "He that hateth his brother has committed as
great a sin as he that slayeth a man," for the deed is as of
an accomplishment in the mental being, which is the builder for
In what manner may souls, as one, find then expression in
bringing to those that are troubled in body, in mind?
They have their individual methods or manners of approach. To
one it is Innate and finds expression by the laying on of hands,
by holding within self the abilities for the replenishing, the
quickening of life itself in the very activity; by the Means of
subjugation of those influences in and about others.
To the other it is an activative force; one reaching or gaining
its access through its Spiritual development and spiritual
import, yet means not only by implication but by the applying of
that which may be termed as the use of energies in nature itself, that is the handmaid to every individual that not only
dedicates itself but that makes application within its
experience of the glories that the Lord hath poured into the
minds and hearts of the children of men, that they may know!
Then unifying these, let both in their own method, in their own
manner apply same; yet knowing deep within self that the Source
of power, the Source of might, the Source of grace, the Source
of mercy, the Source of life, the Source of health comes only
from the Living God! And each then becomes as a stay one for the
other; becoming as a prop, as a brace, as a helpmeet.
In these manners, through the effacing of self, these influences
may be wrought in such manners that many, Many will call them
blessed, Many will give the glory to God; not to them, not to
their efforts, but that they make themselves channels through
which the glory and the might and the power of the Lord may be
Not that turmoils, not that strifes oft, not that disappointment
in the activities of men and of individuals here and there will
not make for hardships. But Even Then, if their purposes are
only that they may, as one, effacing self, show forth the
glory of GOD, they may become, through such experiences, a
strengthening influence one to another.
Through that which has been given each in their experiences in
the earth is shown how they have had this or that in their
experiences which has created, has builded the present
conflicting influences. Meet Them! In what? He, thy King, thy
Lord; yea, thy Brother hath Shown thee the way! "I am the way; I
am the water of life." Drink ye Deep of same, that the healing
you each may administer to others may flow as His love through
thee! For love healeth the wounded; it binds up the
brokenhearted; it makes for understandings where differences
have arisen. For Good Is love.
And as He gave, as He allowed, as He purposed: The children of
men through their brother, Jesus, might Know the way; because He
comes to the hearts of those that seek, not those that are
indifferent, not to those that pass by; not to those that seek
for self, for self's glory, for self's gratification, but that
the love of God may be manifested! For "I in the Father and thee
in me may Know the truth and the truth shall , and does make you
In these manners, in these ways, studying one another; not as to
finding differences but as to union of purposes, as to the
Glorifying of that Saviour of men, that makes for love that
binds the hearts of the children of men as in oneness of ways
and manners, that brings peace and happiness and joy, that
maketh not afraid, that brings to those that seek those things
that make for peace and joy and harmony. And as such they are
the children of God.
From what may Anyone be saved? Only from themselves! That is,
their individual hell; they dig it with their own desires! For, nothing in heaven
or hell may separate thee from the love of God, as is manifested in
thy being, save thyself.
The sources of help and power
are of the divine that is within. For thy body is indeed the
temple of the living God. Use it, consider it, apply it as such.
put off today that which will bring hope and help to the mind of
another. How did He say? "In a more convenient season I will
hear thee"? Those things that make for the putting off become
a joy never fulfilled. Use, then, the experiences from day to day
as the basis, and these will Grow Under Thine Very Effort;
surprising even to self as to the joy that comes from same, and
gradually taking shape to become a joy to self and blessings to
In this, there are always those seeking that we may help, that
may help us; for as we help another does help come to us. Pray
for that friend, that the way through the shadows may be easier
for them. It becomes easier for you.
Helpful to thy fellow man
because a person doesn't do particular harm to anyone, nor does he
abuse his own person, or lead others astray, doesn't mean that he
is accomplishing much in the earth.
If the purpose is that the
individual should glorify God, having an ideal, merely living a
life that does not bring an incentive to someone else to glorify
God is sin, and just as vile in His eyes as one who in lack of
thought or of judgment would err. For this is purposefulness of
self-indulgence. This is not an abuse to the individual, rather as
a warning to make the experiences of the life not only good but
good for something. Keep in the way that is good, but good for
something. In being helpful to thy fellow man.

best to others".
"Speak gently, speak kindly to
those who falter. Ye know not their own temptation, nor the
littleness of their understanding".
day do a kind deed for those who are either shut-in, despondent,
or who have lost hope. Create within that environment for such
that which is the true spiritual attitude. Just being gentle,
patient, showing brotherly love, leaving off resentments, will
bring much bettered conditions to each individual. Just
being kind and patient with others. Don't find fault with others,
with yourself or with circumstances, and you will find that the
spirituality will bring the health and material things in more
active forces in the experience. Do that.
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.
Minimize rather than magnify disagreements in every organized group
for the teaching of the holy word. For know that these in their true
spiritual meaning are unchangeable.
For God is one Lord, and the Christ is the same, yesterday, today
There may be different channels of approach, yes. For not all
peoples walked in the field when the wheat was ripe. Neither did all
stand at the tomb when Lazarus was called forth. Neither were they
all present when He walked on the water, nor when He fed the 5,000,
nor when He hung on the Cross. Yet each experience answered, and
does answer to something within each individual soul-entity. For
each soul is a corpuscle in the body of God. And when differences
arise in a body, where corpuscles are at variance to a common
purpose for all, sin enters, and death by sin, to whatever may be
that group, that organization, that is stressing differences rather
than the coordinating channels through which all may come to the
knowledge of God.
Be honest with yourself if you're not with anyone else! Don't keep
in Whom thou has believed, and know He is able to keep that
committed unto Him against any experience that may arise in thine
life. As the love, the counsel, then though trials, though
temptations, though those things that would beset arise, know that
all may be placed in His keeping; and Do Not belittle self nor
self's associations with that that enables self to gain the
greater control over self, individuals or circumstances as may
arise in thine own experience; for with those things that arise. He gave: "As ye overcome the little things are there
given the greater tasks to be done." Be kind, gentle,
affectionate, one toward another, in love preferring one another,
as He gave, and that peace that comes even from His own hand will
be thine own lot. In service for others His strength may
flow through thine own body, for others; for, as He gave thee
power unto others, so was it given unto thee that those whom thou
asketh, seeketh, aideth, may know that the Redeemer liveth, and
His power is manifest in thine own actions. Do those conditions,
even as of old, when being railed upon or spoken about, make for
those things that hurt or hinder, in Him these may be cast aside,
Not of self! Remembering there are many conditions to be met.
Keeping, then, in the light, is that way, that manner, that
greater spiritual, greater insight, greater knowledge, greater
patience, greater love, may be shown day by day. A life is
not builded in a moment. Neither is one act, one deed, the result
of a Moment's experience; rather the growth, as has been given,
is in that of a life spent in service one for another. Make thine
self Glad in Him, and that joy as comes from others, "Lord,
Others, May I lose myself in service for others. Even as Thou did
give thine own heart's blood that Others might know the Father's
face, so may I give mine own body, mine heart, that Others may
Seek not then for glory of self.
Remain humble. Do the biddings for an ideal, if ye would gain and
have peace and harmony in thy experience.
Know first and
foremost, as has been given, that the Lord thy God is One! Then
know, too, that thyself is one, thy ego, thy I Am. Thy
purposes, then; thy heart and thy life must be a Consistent
thing! For if thine eye be single (the I Am; that is, the
purposes, the desires, and ye work At It!), then thy Whole Body
is full of light.
But if ye are attempting to have thy physical body doing just as
it pleases, thy mental body controlled by "What will other
people say?" and thy spiritual body and mind shelved only for
good occasions and for the good impressions that you may make
occasionally, there Cannot be other than confusion!
These as given are not merely sayings; they answer to that which
has been and is thy turmoil in the present. Look Within! For if
there is trouble in thy mind, in thy body, in thy spirit, or
purpose, or mind; sin lieth at that door.
What, then, is this as an ideal?
Ought these things so to be, according to thy ideal.
Then, the more important, the most important experience of any
individual entity is to first know what Is the ideal -
spiritually. As concerning thy fellow man, He gave: "As ye would
that others do to you, do ye even so to them", take no thought,
worry not, be not overanxious about the body.
For He knoweth what ye
have need of. In the place thou art, in the consciousness in
which ye find yourself, is that which is Today, Now, needed for
thy greater, thy better, thy more wonderful unfoldment.
But today Heat His voice: "Come unto me, all that are weak or
that are heavy-laden, and I will give you rest from those
worries, peace from those anxieties." For the Lord
loveth those who put their trust Wholly in Him. This, then, is
that attitude of mind that puts away hates, malice, anxiety,
jealousy. And it creates in their stead, in that Mind is the
Builder, the fruits of the spirit, love, patience, mercy,
long-suffering, kindness, gentleness. And these, against such
there is no law. They break down barriers, they bring peace and harmony, they
bring the outlook upon life of not finding fault because someone
"forgot," someone's judgment was bad, someone was selfish today.
These ye can overlook, for so did He. In His own
experience with those that He had chosen out of the world, if He
had held disappointment in their leaving Him to the mercies of
an indignant high priest, a determined lawyer and an unjust
steward, what would have been Thy hope, thy promise today?
For He, though with the ability to destroy, thought not of such
but rather gave Himself; that the Creative Forces, God, might be
reconciled to that pronouncement, that judgment. And
thus mercy, through the shedding of blood, came into man's
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 the
light. 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 fellowman that ye show forth His love. For as ye do it
unto the least of these, thy brethren, ye do it unto thy Maker.
Thus the injunction to analyse self, to
set down the ideals and ideas, to know what you believe and who
is the author. Hence the injunction to be mindful of
judgments and to be just as patient with others as you want
others to be with you. Be as forgiving to others as you want
others to Be forgiving to you. For unless you would forgive thy
brother, that you see and know in the flesh, how may ye expect
thy heavenly Father to forgive, whom you have never seen, or
may ever see, unless ye prepare the way here and now. Then, do
things not to be seen of men but to be seen and judged of God.
For His judgment and His justice is right.
mentally and spiritually
First you should study well
the ideals and purposes of self as related to self as a whole;
that is, analysing each period of the entity's manifestation in
the earth and what the entity did as respecting the ideals which
were and are a part of the entity's activities in that period
and in the present. For, mental and spiritual guidance
should be related to what an individual entity chooses as its
ideal, and what it will or should do about that ideal, not ideas
but ideals. In choosing and in analysing self and the
ideal, do not merely carry these in mind but put them, as it
were, upon the paper in a manifested form. Write Physical. Draw
a line, write Mental. Draw a line, write Spiritual. Put
under each, beginning with the spiritual, (for all that is in
mind must first come from a spiritual concept) what is thy
spiritual concept of the ideal, whether it be Jesus, Buddha,
mind, material, God or whatever is the word which indicates to
self the ideals spiritual. Then under the Mental heading
write the ideal mental attitude, as may arise from concepts of
the spiritual, in relationship to self, to home, to friends, to
neighbours, to thy enemies, to things, to conditions.
Then write what is thy ideal spiritual, mental, material. What
is the ideal material, then? Not of conditions but what has
brought, what does bring into manifestation the spiritual and
mental ideals. What relationships does such bring to things, to
individual, to situations? Thus an individual entity
analyses itself. Then set about to apply the knowledge ye have
attained, for ye will get ideas and that ideal. Ye may change
them from period to period, as ye study them over.
For as ye apply them they become thy ideals. To be just as
theories they do not belong to thee, they are still theories so
far as thy personal being is concerned. It's the application of
same that counts. What do they bring into thine experience?
These are well if ye will apply them.
If you study it
Hence the great injunction to find in self first the ideals,
spiritual, mental, material; and not just hearsay. Put them down
in black and white. Put them down in the three columns, and
you'll rub them out daily, if you study it, and replace them;
and then find that they all will be in one column. For the Lord,
thy God is one. But put them down. Put names to them. For in
names we give limitations, to set metes and bounds. And as ye
grow, these limitations must be expanded.
Know first that there must be that chosen Ideal
As in the mental there are the ideal activities of the mental
body, as is demonstrated in the daily experience of the entity
in watching and in seeing the minds of individuals open to that
which is an ideal manner of expression. So in the
physical-mental self as there are ideals so there must be in the
mental and spiritual self ideals.
For know first, the image must be in the spiritual ideal before
it may become a factor in the mental self for material
Hence the purposes for which the entity enters this present
experience in the earth, that it may show forth in its dealings
with its fellow man the Ideal manner of meeting not only the
material things that have to do with the body-associations but
also with the mental and the spiritual.
And as has been indicated, and as is known by the body in its
experience, it is not what one knows in an abstract manner but
what one does about its knowledge, its understanding, in a
mental, in a spiritual way and manner, that is to become a
portion of the entity's activity, is that which makes for the
constructive forces in the experience of this entity, in the
experience of every soul.
For a pattern has been given, as the pattern of the Holy One, as
the pattern in a more abstract yet material manifestations of
same in the wilderness. That the body, self, is then indeed the
temple of the living God, that is ideal.
For He, the Maker, the Creator, came into a body, flesh and
blood, that it might be shown man, yea, might be shown the
entity, as to what is the ideal manner to meet every
experience. For as has been given, He was tempted in all points
like as we are, yet without error.
Yet He bore in the body the sufferings of the body; want,
loneliness, forsaken; and all that play upon the emotions of
the bodily functions; knowing within self the abilities of self
to by the mere word, by the speaking to the influences,
eradicate these entirely.
Is that thy ideal?
If not, why not?
First, know thy ideals: Physical, Mental and Spiritual. And know
the physical result is first conceived in spirit, acted upon by
mind, and then manifested in the material, with what spirit ye
Study to show thyself approved unto that ideal, condemning none,
not even self; but keeping self unspotted from the condemnation
Do not that in secret that would be questioned in the open. Then the ideal or the
purpose must to the entity become the law. Remember, law is
love, love is law, love is God, love is manifested in material
things, in personal things, in individual things. These must be
accomplished in self; by rule, yes, but know that mercy and
truth and justice and love are the gift of the divine. And you
may only attain the knowledge of such by Being such, manifesting
such, in thy daily walks of life, in thy associations one with
another. Choosing ideal, yes, spiritually, mentally, materially
it must be founded in spirit, to have in same the ability to be
creative or a growing, living thing in thy experience. Remember
ever as the basis of that which thou may choose as thine ideal,
it must be of a spiritual import. For unless those activities
that find themselves manifested in materiality, or even matter,
are of a spiritual import that is constructive in its essence,
the End is confusion. For the mind of a body is both material
and spiritual, and it Is the builder. If the patterns or
outlines are founded in truth and spirituality, the hardships,
fears, doubts and confusions will be taken away, even as the
mist before the noonday sun. Each soul must find its Own
impulse, its Own ideal. As thou hast seen, as thou may apply in
this present experience, when that ideal is set in Him one may
experience that as He gave: "Seek ye the Lord while He may be
found, and All These Things shall be added unto thee". Then,
specifically, make in his material realms those insurances for
the opportunities that the mental life may be strengthened and
broadened by its contacts with the material things that make a
necessity for the preparations of activities in a material
world, but know that all of these must be founded upon the
spiritual side that the life, the experience of thy son, of any
individual, may not weigh heavy upon the body, the mind, the
whole purpose of experience. In the material, then, make for
those assurities, and in the mental and spiritual that the
surroundings in this preparation are founded in truth and in
In the spiritual pattern then for self, as for all, what would
Under every environ, under every
circumstance, what has been His message to thee?These ye have held fast to, but ye have stood in much the same
position as the young ruler that asked: "Master, what good thing, what Good thing can I do that I may inherit eternal life?"
"Thou knowest the law." "These have I kept from my youth." "One
thing thou lackest yet, sell all thou hast, give to the poor,
and follow me."
Then in thine own self there are the needs to humble thyself
before thy fellow man; not as one ashamed. Because the Master
was humble before the throng, the mockery, the rulers, the
riffraff, and wore the purple robe and the crown of thorns, was
He ashamed of His position?
Then humbleness is not being ashamed but rather as He, Knowing
in self that it is that necessary for God's will to be the
better, the more perfectly, the more truly manifested in thine
own experience! For He hath not willed that any soul should perish, but hath
given even His son as the Pattern, yea, thy brother, Jesus, the
Christ, that ye may know what is the way, what is the manner.
For He is the way, He is the vine, and He abideth in the Father
and ye as the branches abide in Him, as ye Do His biddings.
If thy friend or thy foe smites thee on the one cheek, do ye
revile him because his power and his might is greater than thine?
because through the experiences of life the positions are such
that he is in the more favorable for some material success?
Do ye say, "Lord, Thy Will be done In me, Through me, that I may
be the better channel for the expression of Thy Love in the
earth, And as I forgive them, Father, that would do me harm,
that would humble me, that would make for the experiences to
belittle me, as I forgive them, forgive Thou me of my
Know that even as the Christ, even as the Jesus, had He
withered the hands of those that smote Him because it was in His
power, He could Not be, He would Not be, thy Christ, thy
Saviour, thy Lord! Then as He gave, "Do thou likewise."
These are not in thy experience fables or just trite sayings.
That ye sow, that must ye also reap. Because ye have sown good
deeds and still find that those who would do thee harm
apparently succeed, do ye falter?
Yea, how was His experience when the ten stood afar and cried,
"Lord have mercy upon us, for we are unclean" and He cried, "Go,
show thyself to the priest and ye shall be clean," and in the
going they became clean; yet only 1 of the 10 returned to say
"Thank you, Lord"?
Did He bring the leprosy again upon those for their activity, or
for their forgetfulness? No; rather did He give, "Love those
that despitefully use thee," if ye would know the Lord and His
ways with the children of men.
That thy Lord through thy expression of thy faith in the Divine
has made thee an instrument of teaching and ministering to
others in their search for the way of living, in their search
for the manner of expressions in the material world in a seeking
of knowledge and understanding, then temper that ye give with
the love of the Father in the ways that the Master gave as to
why this or that is done in the relationships with thy fellow
man. And then ye will find not only does the way of life become
rather as He gave,
"Take my yoke upon thee and learn of me, for my yoke is easy and
my burden is light," but if ye by the power of thy own might and
in thy own knowledge and in thy own wisdom force upon those of
thy associations this or that activity, ye have left the power
of God out of thyself and thy purposes become as naught!
For might and power are of the Lord. For no man, no entity, no
purpose in the experience of any soul is existent save by the
grace of God that the earth might become His footstool, and the
dwelling place of Who? Those that are righteous within their own
selves? No; they that have humbled themselves and are faithful
to the trust and
purposes that have been put into their ways, into their
opportunities for being that channel of blessings to someone day
by day. These shall indeed inherit the earth. For they that love
the Lord shall inherit the earth. That ye love, that ye bow to.
For where the treasure is, there the purpose and desires of the
heart are also.
Through thine undertakings, through thine experiences ye have
been and are endowed with an intuition that becomes what ye term
psychic force in thy abilities, in thy powers. If thy soul's
abilities are being expended for the gratifying of a material
desire, they come to naught.
If they are expressed and manifested in such ways and manners as
to be to the glory of the Father, to the understanding of thy
brethren that they may know the love the Father beareth the
children of men, then indeed shall they grow and bring forth
sixty, yea an hundred fold, in what?
"My peace I leave with you - not as the world giveth peace, but
my peace I give unto you", you that Use, you that Apply that
power of God in thyself through thy intuition, yea through thy
soul force, that thy visions, thy dreams, yea thy powers make
thee walk with God! Yet if ye do these for that of lauding or
lording thy knowledge, thy abilities over the humblest, yea the
greatest, yea the vilest of thy acquaintances, ye do so to thine
own confusion, thine own undoing. "When ye call on the
Lord He will answer thee right quickly." Hast thou purged
thyself; thy purposes; thy desires? Are they one with the Lord?
Consider First the Ideal
consider that first which is the ideal, upon which every soul
should rely for the strength, for the understanding as to what
associations, problems, disturbing forces have meant and must
mean - even in one's Own experiences. Consider the
experience of He that in the flesh came as an exemplification of
man's relationship to the Creative Forces, or God, and those
disappointments, those activities that were about that entity,
that soul! how even He was forsaken by those that were so oft in
His presence, that were in the presence of that influence which
shone into the lives, into the hearts and the minds of those who
were aided, who were materially and mentally benefited.
But in all of those confusions, all of those disappointments
that came by the very attempts to fulfil His purpose, He never
faltered. And then we see in the last moments there came
into His own experience that great trial, and He said, "Can ye
not watch one hour? But sleep on, take thy rest, for the day
dawns, and the Son of man must go forth to meet All that Is
disappointment in the hearts of not an individual alone but each
and every soul!" Thus we begin to see what purpose,
desire, Has meant, Must mean, in the hearts of those that have
determined within themselves that, "Others may do as they may,
but for me and my house, we will serve a living God!"
Then the self should take all of these into consideration. Not
that there is not to be considered also that failures have
jeopardized the abilities of self or associates to meet the
immediate needs of the material man, have jeopardized much that
appeared to be those channels through which help might be
expected, and the Rights within self even come to naught. But did He fail thee in that hour in the garden? Did He fail in
that hour of trial? Will ye fail those boys, yea those souls,
thy brethren, now? For as He hath given, and as ye may
experience, "As ye do it to the least of thy brethren, ye do it
to thy Maker," who hath given thee abilities in opportunities.
And because of discouragements and because of failures, and
because of heartaches, and because of those things that make men
afraid, will ye turn thy back upon the opportunity before thee,
Then what is the real problem?
Hold fast to that as ye purpose in thy heart, that there Will be
the opportunity for those that are through their own
shortcomings losing, or have lost, sight of their relationships.
Then put on rather the whole armor. Look within self, first.
Clear that doubt of thy association, thy connection with that
divine source, that With which ye may conquer All; and Without
which even all the fame, all the fortune of the age would not
bring that ye have purposed to do into the experience of even
One soul, the relationship of the soul to its Maker and the
Maker's relationship to that created!
Hence the necessity for
each entity choosing, or analysing self in such a way and manner
as to know what is the ideal relationship of a soul-entity to
the Creative Forces we call God, as well as an ideal attitude
and activity of a mental being that would serve or fulfil that
purpose; and, lastly, there should be the ideal manner of
expression of those phases of the ideals in relationships with
the fellow man.
Thus, as we find the application of self, first, study to know
what is the ideal, not as to what others would be to you, but
what ye would also be to them. What is the ideal relationship of
the Maker to the creature? Is it not expressed in the Son?
What is the ideal relationships of a ruler to his people?
whether he be king or president?
There Is evidently an ideal, and it is not founded other than in
the spiritual approach. For that alone that is ideal is
enduring, and only good, as God is enduring.
In that influence, then, may the ideal and truth be set. Hold
fast to that!
Ideal in Human
For there is only the one ideal in Human relationships, and that
is as that given by Him who Is the Way, the Truth, the Light:
"Love thy neighbour as thyself." The relationships to the
Creative Forces are as the first portion: "Thou shalt love the
Lord thy God with all thy heart, thy mind, thy body; thy
neighbour as thyself."
This is in keeping with that which was the last commendation to
those who were to be as ministers and emissaries, for those
purposes for which each and every soul was called into material
activity, and that search for which it seeks expression in its
inner self: "A new commandment give I unto you," saith He, "that
ye love one another, even as I have loved you." So long as these are the ideals, so long as these are the
purposes, so long as these are the desires, to give this
understanding, so long will there be growth in soul development.
For we grow in grace by applying grace and mercy, and in
understanding as we try to understand. For it is the try, the
attempt, that is the righteousness of man. Not by any deed or
act, but "by the fruits ye shall know them."
For there is the law
of the material, there is the law of the mental, there is the
law of the spiritual. That brought into materiality is first
conceived in spirit. Hence all illness is sin; not necessarily
of the moment, as man counts time, but as a part of the whole
experience. For God has not purposed or willed that any soul
should perish, but purgeth everyone by illness, by prosperity,
by hardships, by those things needed, in order to meet self -
but in Him, by faith and works, are ye made every whit whole.
Use that thou hast in hand, knowing that the Increase, whether
of mental, whether of material, is in the hands of the Giver of
all good and perfect gifts, and is not of thine own self; for
God gives the increase; for that law of compensation is but
another expression of that same force, "As ye sow, so shall ye
reap"; knowing that the seed as is sown is as but the activities
of the life itself, and the Results, when they have conceived
and brought into being that which must propagate, as the forces
in nature, or in spirit, or in mind, are those of the Spirit of
the Life itself. Hit, struggle, aim, not against that that would
crush or bind thee; rather accepting same as a Necessary
understanding to come Within thine own experience, that thou
mayest Know the face of the Redeemer better. Hate not thine self
for passing under the rod. Knowest not thou hast merited that
that is builded within thine experience, else thou wouldst Not
be within that confine? for it is Not the will that Any should
suffer, but that all may know the glory Of the Father, even as
all souls had in their beginning. Take, then, that thou hast in
hand. Use that, leaving the Increase in His hands. Then do with
thy might what thy hands find to do, leaving the results and the
increase in the hands of Him who Must give the increase. What
may self do, lest thou be in accord with Him? for as given, if
ye be With God and His righteousness, Who can be against thee?
But if ye go about to present thine own self, how can God be
with thee? Love righteousness, eschew evil. Look upon every
experience as a necessary element in thine Own development,
knowing He will guide thee; for He clotheth the fowls of the
air, the lilies of the field; He is mindful Especially of those
that love His ways. Study, then, to show thyself approved, Each
Day! Do What thou Knowest to do, to be aright! Then Leave It
Alone! God giveth the increase! Thy worry, thy anxiety, only
will produce disorder in thine Own mind! For the application in
self, the Try, the effort, the energy expended in the proper
direction, is all that is required of Thee. God giveth the
increase. Man should learn it is God that giveth the increase.
Man as he labours, as has been given of old, is worthy of his
hire. To take advantage, then, of an employee because of
circumstance, because of surroundings, or for the employee to
take advantage of the employer because of any condition that
arises, must be met in the experience of them all. For it is the
law; and the law shall not pass away until it is fulfilled to
every whit and every tittle in the experiences of each
individual! Hence the warnings given, that there be the building
within self of that as would be not merely an axiom but as a
living experience. For the Lord thy God is a living God. Man's
soul, man's activity, is a living experience. Begin to build
constructively in the beginning, if you would have the success
in all phases of the endeavour.
For as is the hope, the expectancy of an entity, it will be a
conscious entity through eternity. Then it has been a conscious
entity from the beginning, but not aware of those experiences
save as the entity may attune its spiritual abilities and
spiritual activities to the infinite. For an entity finds itself
a body, a mind and a soul, or a body-mind adapted to the
environs of a physical experience in the material earth with
urges latent and manifested, and these urges magnified or
minimized according to the activities of the entity in
relationships to such urges.
But there is no urge from an experience in the earth, or factors
or activities in this material experience, surpassing the will
of an entity. For that will is the birthright of an entity,
making of that entity an individual or its expressed
The individuality is the sum total of what the entity has done
about those things that are creative or ideal in its varied
experiences in the earth.
Just as what an entity may do with its abilities in the present
experience will depend upon what an entity does about that which
it chooses as its ideal in this present experience, and what it
does about such an ideal in dealing with the problems that
concern things, conditions, and individuals.
For each phase of the entity, as the physical body, has
attributes. The mind has physical and spiritual attributes that
may be as one. For the mind is as the Way, the way in which one
uses, the way in which one approaches affinity or purely
materiality according to that the entity does about or uses as
its pattern for its ideal.
The entity has its ideals physically, it has its ideals
mentally, it has its ideals spiritually. Are those ideals
creative? Are they of the divine? These may be best
answered within the entity itself. For what it does about those
ideals, and how sincere it is in such activity, governs what the
future will be.
If you are in that
position of being an influence.
Then know the source
of thy power, thy might. And let the guiding influence in
spirit, in truth, be in the individual activities that may bring
those powers that are as manifestations in Him who is the way,
the truth, the light. Then, let that as may be indicated
here as to the abilities be ever tempered with the spirit of
Christian love, Christian fortitude, Christian faith. Know in
whom ye believe, and the source of the might, the power as may
control or direct those influences. And when the storms
of life come, when doubts and fears and disappointments arise,
know to Whom ye may turn, in Whom thou hast put thy faith, thy
understanding. And know that He is able to keep that which has
been committed unto Him. While ye may not walk
alone, He will walk with thee. Then with those abilities, those
influences, let thy thought and thy purpose ever be as unto the
glorifying of that love he, thy Master, manifested in the
earth. Do thou likewise. For as He gave "they that give a
kind word, that may become as a cup of water to a thirsty soul,
shall in no wise lose their reward". Gentleness, kindness,
patience: as ye have had to learn, are not hard in Him - only
when ye lose thy hold on His promises! For, as has so oft
been indicated through the promises, the proclamations, the
pronouncements of the saints of old, it has ever been given that
God hath not willed that any soul should perish, but hath with
every temptation prepared a way, a manner of escape. In
the applying of self day by day in every way, that thou Knowest,
that makes a personal application of that thou knowest to do,
without questioning of the morrow; for the Morrow has Its evils
and its goods, sufficient unto self. Today is! Use that
thou hast in hand. So does the awakening come. Even as called by
God to lead a peoples, as was Moses, a shepherd and the flocks
in Moab. Use that thou hast in hand, for the Ground whereon
thou standest is holy! Aid those who may seek to know
how God in his mercies makes known to the seekers of His grace.
Do good to those that even persecute you, that even would laugh
thee to scorn. Give Them at least the opportunity to reject.
For, so did they to His prophets, to His angels - everywhere.
Study first to present self holy and acceptable unto Him. Then
may thy good be not evil-spoken of. Make known thine Own
relations with Him through such understandings as Thou hast
received. As thou seekest, as thou asketh, as thou in
earnest desire to make known thy cause unto those forces, those
influences that may be thine, First convince self; then pass
to others that which has been helpful to thee.
All! For, All have fallen short of the grace of God. And all
need to learn, "As ye do it today to the least of thy brethren,
ye are doing to thy Maker." For in what manner ye measure, it
must be measured to thee again. For ye are His, bought with the
price. But as He, ye must pay every whit, every farthing! For as
He has given, ye must give account for every Idle word. Not that
ye are not to be joyous. For if ye lose that ability to laugh,
ye lose that ability to be joyous. And the religion, the
principle of the Christ-life is joyous!
For, remember, He laughed even on the way to Calvary; not as
pictured so oft, but laughed even at those that tormented Him.
This is what angered them the most. Let thy heart be glad and Joyous
that thou art counted Worthy to be a bearer of truth and life to
thy fellow man. For as ye seek to make manifest that thou hast
gained in thine search, Strength and Understanding goes with
thee. Bear ye one Another's burdens. Make thy life an Open light
to those that would seek to know the truth. For the truth will
indeed make thee free, if ye will follow in the way the Lord
hath opened. For a light must shine Out to the seeking world,
and Thou may light the way.
Hast thou not tried both?
Hast thou not found that the Essence, the truth, the Real truth is
One? Mercy and justice; peace and harmony. For without Moses and
his leader Joshua (that was bodily Jesus) there Is no Christ.
Christ is not a man! Jesus was the man; Christ the
messenger; Christ in all ages, Jesus in one, Joshua in another,
Melchizedek in another; These be those that led Judaism! These be
they that came as that child of promise, as to the children of
promise; and the promise is in thee, that ye lead as He has given
thee, "Feed my sheep."
The patient Joshua, the one who followed
closely in the way that would give to the individual (who would
study) the life and interpretation of the Son of man. These in the
earth activity were much alike (Joshua and Jesus) not as
combative, as in the warrings, but in spirit and in purpose, in
ideals, these were one. Thus may ye use the Son of man,
Jesus, the Master, as the ideal in the present, and find a new
meaning, if there is the studying and the paralleling of the life
of Jesus and of Joshua. Then study to show thyself
approved unto thy ideal, a workman not ashamed rightly dividing
the words of truth, and keeping self from condemnation, of others
or of self.
"Judge not if ye would be not judged; for with what measure ye
mete it shall be measured to you again."
within thine own self judge ye not of others, lest ye be also
judged likewise. Rather keep thine own skirts clean, knowing that
in Him ye live and move and have thy being; as does each soul as
it manifests in the earth. Who is to judge his brother? Keep
thy humour. Keep the thinking well of self, but as well of thy
neighbour. Study to show thyself approved unto thy ideal. Learn
and know what is thy ideal, spiritually, mentally, materially.
Know in Whom ye have believed, as well as in what ye believe. Know the author of thy tenets, of thy faiths, of thy
hopes, yea, of thy fears; studying to show thyself approved unto
same, condemning none. Who, then, is thy Lord? Know Him as thy
Personal Saviour, if ye would find thyself. Judge not that
ye be not judged, and remember the law that is so similar, "As
ye sow ye reap", not only materially but mentally and
In judgment, as in
mental self, it must be exacting, but no more exacting of others
than of self, and no more exacting of self than of others. For,
know, with what measure ye mete to others ye are measuring to
thy Maker, God. Know that all the creative force ye may become
aware of is within thine own self. For, as thy body is indeed
the temple of the living God, there He has promised to meet
What is judgment?
With what judgment shall ye be judged? Law is love; Love is law.
Judgment is weighing love, law, according to the intent, the
purpose of the activity in its relationships to thyself and to
the force that impelled same. A weighing of evidence in an
activity; as Law is that through which, by which, in which all
For what was the
judgement, what Is judgement, what will ever be the judgement?
They that deny that He hath come in the flesh are not worthy of
acceptation. They that give thee that which is not helpful,
hopeful, and patient and humble, and not condemning any, are not
worthy! This is thy judgement.
Dogmatic law or
Judge not that ye be not judged, and remember the law that is so
similar, "As ye sow ye reap", not only materially but mentally
and spiritually. For, as one does to
others is the measure of greatness or goodness towards the
Creative Forces. Remember, the judgments of man are ever very
uncertain. The sureness in the judgments of the Father are in
helpfulness to others, to self.
must experience the same things we have done to other people. This
which we call Karma, can happen either during the present life
time, or during future incarnations. This law, this truth is
applied to all.
Keeper of His Own Vineyard
Each individual must be, and is, the keeper of his own vineyard.
For there is, as from the beginning, in each entity that, of
the Father, or the First Cause, that enables one to make
manifest even in the material world through the attributes OF
the First Cause, that makes for the manifestation OF that power,
or force, in a material world. As to what one does With same is
an action of the will that entity himself, or herself.

It is not the knowledge,
then, but what one does with one's abilities, one's
opportunities in relationships to others, that makes for the
development or retardment of that individual.
For life in its manifestations through which the soul of an
entity or body may manifest Is purposeful, and that the
individual, the soul may find its way through the vicissitudes
of experience in materiality, that it may know its God.
For He manifested in flesh that the evil forces, as manifest in
the relationships of individuals as one to another, may be
eradicated from the experiences of man. For know, all
that the entity may know of law, of God, of relationships,
already exists in the consciousness for the entity to be made
aware of same. Then, for this information to become knowledge or
understanding there must be the application of self to those
sources of material knowledge but with the faith and trust in
universal knowledge. For as indicated by the lawgiver (Moses),
think not who will descend from heaven that ye may hear or know;
think not who will come from over the sea that a message may be
brought; for lo, it is within thine own self. For the mind and
soul is from the beginning. Thus there is to come within the
entity's own consciousness the awareness of how the application
is to be made.
Knowledge is power if there is the wisdom to apply it in the
direction that brings the fruit of the spirit or the seed
thereof. For, what the individual sows, that must it also reap.
Then, let that mind ever be in thee as ye have manifested oft in
thy experiences in the earth.
the body-desires may be many, and the impartial life is as that
which must meet the needs of the material body, their Inception,
my children, must be in the Spirit; else they turn to clay in thy
characteristics one needs to improve to help one live more fully
little niceties of self, as ye like to see in others. Practice all
you preach. Never ask anyone to do that you don't do yourself. Do
the things that bespeak of thy body, of thy mind, being a channel
to the glory of God ever. Thinking of thy words, thinking of thy
activities, thinking of thy thoughts about others as being
messengers, as being channels, as being those things (which if
crystallized into things) would be blessings to someone. Thus thy life will
grow more beautiful; you will become more necessary. It is when
one realizes one's need, and the need in others, that self is able, through the grace of God, to supply; through becoming the more
humble and selfless. Thus may the light of the
Christ-Consciousness shine through. Then one becomes great
indeed. For even as thou in the pattern before this mourned; while
as a pattern, He mourned with those who wept and rejoiced with
those who rejoiced. Do thou likewise - for His sake.
That even as was
given of Him, the teacher: Know Thyself and thy relationships to
thy fellow man and thy Creative Forces that are within and
without, as These may be applied in the relationships of
individuals in Every walk of life day by day! For what
preserves the equanimity of the earth today? The same as did in
that illustration recorded in how Abram or Abraham pled for the
cities; if there be found forty just men; lo, if there be found
even thirty, or ten, those have held, these do hold,
opportunities open for others. In the associations of
individuals as may be combined for the carrying on of commerce,
trade, a union of power, of capital for that to prepare and to
make for the better conveniences for man's indwelling, take hold
rather ever on those things that pertain not to self-indulgences
or self-aggrandizements in such groups, but build in those
activities with the associations of groups those things that
preserve, that have indeed been pointed out to be the fruits of
the Spirit; namely, peace, harmony, brotherly love, longsuffering,
patience. These are those things that make for more and more of
that which is indeed the whole law; to love God, eschew evil, and
think of thy neighbour as thyself. And when these are kept
in the experiences as the basic influences in the activities of
any group or association, or state or any nation, God giveth the
increase; God prospereth those that love His ways. For
the earth is the Lord's and the fullness thereof, "the silver
and the gold is mine, saith the Lord, and the cattle on a thousand
hills." Yea, and if ye will but make thyself as a channel
that in the experience of man maketh for the Knowledge that these
are the basic influences, saith the Lord, "I will open even
the windows of heaven to pour a blessing upon such." These
be the promises, these be the experiences of those that so live,
that so construct in the associations of others that each man,
each group, each nation is considered as a part of the whole and
has been and must be given the ability, the opportunity, to
manifest his or its abilities, functions in same. For in
the heart of man is written, by his application in the experiences
with his fellow man, that which he hath done about the knowledge
of the Lord. The Condemnation then comes within self. The
Lord hath not willed that any soul should perish, that any should
want, that any soul should worry.
