Emmanuel or God among men

The Lord, thy Christ, thy God,
Know, O Israel, the Lord thy God is One!

To be served with the purpose; that as may be given, as that Counsel, that Advice, as will enable the body in its present experience to meet all of those conditions. Know in whom you believe. Know in what you believe. Know the author of thy belief. How few stop to know that! We say we believe, but what? Who is the author of thy salvation? Who is the author of thy faith, of thy hope, of thy aspirations? Man? What man? Only He, who has made the test in giving himself in the service of his fellow man. Lord Lead Thou The Way. I Commit My Body, My Mind, To Be One With Thee, That We May Make Manifest the Love of God and Man.

Law

"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, spiritual. 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 law.

Laws

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.

First Laws

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 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 thyself."

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.

Second Law

"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.

As a Judge in the Application of the Law

Use thy abilities to unite, not to separate men or purposes or nations.

Lessons

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 self!

Life

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.

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 thy soul. 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.

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 manners. 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 also reap. 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 spiritual attributes. 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 very manifestations, 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.

Life

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.

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 First Principle

"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 Any time. 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 dwelling place. 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."

Life Experiences

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 ideal.

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 about it! 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 to come. 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, 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.

Know that life and mind are eternal

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 spiritual concept. 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 with Him. For heaven and earth must pass away, but my word Shall Not, saith the Lord!"

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 kingdom.

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 face away. 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 directing influence. 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

Live-a-day, yet it is the basis of peace, of joy, of happiness, which may make this life worth while.

Longevity

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.

Moderation

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 are worthy.

Lord

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!

Lost

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 expressed.

Love

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 morning sun. 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.

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 effect. 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.

M

Man

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 soul. 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.

Marriage


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 desires? 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 within self. 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.

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!

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 natural source.

Measure

For, in the physical as from the mental, with what measure ye mete it is measured to thee again.

Medicinal

Medicinal 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 self.

Meditation

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 their lot. 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 daily surroundings. 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 superconsciousness. 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!

Why?

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.

How?

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.

Why?

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 self.

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.

Nervous System

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 strength of 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.

Memory

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.

Mercy

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 increase, ever.

Message

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.

Mind

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 living God.  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 purify.

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 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.

Ministry

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.

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.

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.

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!

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 thee. 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.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

N

Nationalism

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."

Nation

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!

Nations

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 sixty to eight-four 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 urge. 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 individuals. 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.

Needs


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.

Neighbour

"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 experience. 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 reap. 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 promise."

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 self. 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.

New Commandment

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 fellow man.

Nicodemus

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.

O

Obstacles

“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.

Odours

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!

Oneness

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 God.

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 entity.

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

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

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 all.

Others

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.

Over-indulgence

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.

P

Partiality

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?

Past

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 God!"

Path

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 the most.

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 biddings. 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.

Patience

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 spiritual life. 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, physically, spiritually, 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 the many. 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 do. 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.

Learn Patience

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.

Pattern

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.

Peace

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.

World Peace

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

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.

Power

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

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."

Prayer

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.

Prayer 1

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."

Prayer 2

"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 Children!"

Prayer 3

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.”

Preparations

As one prepares for the indwelling with the Creative Forces, then one may expect to enter into the joys of the Lord.

Problems

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."

Others Problems

You do not meet others problems save as you take them on yourself. You meet thyself in same.

Promises

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!

His promise

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 suffered."  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.

Protection

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!"

Purpose

“Each individual came into life with a purpose from God.”
“Each individual is as a harp upon which the breath of God would play.”
“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.”

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!

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 experience.

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 Thine experience.

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 his reward."

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 are!

Analyze, ever, thy purposes

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 experience?

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 these influences? 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 Is One". 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.

R

Receive

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.

Recompense

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".

Reincarnation

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 way.

Possible change of sex from one incarnation to another

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 soul).  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 been spoken.

How 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 experience.

Relationships

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.

Betterments of Relationships

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.

Religion

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.

Remembrance

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.

Resurrection

The Resurrection of Jesus, the Christ

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.

Revolution

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.

Righteousness

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.
