of Life Lesson
Let us first off realize the greatest in line of importance of all facts. When we deal with Life, we are dealing with the Power of God flowing through His Son.
could write all day. If you would, you could read all year on the subject of
this dynamic force--which is real, which is everywhere, which is all that is,
and which is all we can hope to be.
the religious teachings of most organizations, little is said about God, though
a great deal is said about what God said in the Holy Bible and the Jewish Book
of the Law. Then, there is the Prayer in the Siddur to God.
other faiths of the Eastern religions, GOD is called "Allah" and the
interesting thing here is that the people of the East, to which the Christian
church has sent so many missionaries in an effort to convert them, are very
concerned about GOD--even though call Him by another name. They will sit for
hours in mediation in an attempt to gain greater wisdom.
your GOD may manifest as sunlight, the song of the birds, or as the newborn baby
in its motherís arms, but it is one and the same GOD.
this age, we must learn to really feel GODís presence--the presence of the
GOD-they force moving through us. KNOW...KNOW...KNOW that it is right here--NOT
in some far off, distant heaven.
ancients considered this as of the first importance, because if you do not feel
the presence of the Teacher, how can you communicate?
yet, few people in the New Age really understand today what the ancient Greek
philosopher, Plotinus, tried to give the world--nor did many realize it in that
day. But now the sands of time of that Age have run out, and this is the New
Age. Today, the thinking of the "mass mind" is still trying to blot
out the light of wisdom Plotinus gave the world--the same as with the words of
says there exists nothing in this universe, or this Solar System, but GOD. We
know the ego will not like this, but whether it does or not, will not change the
fact. If you speak on the subject of GOD, then you are always thought to be
speaking about some external and personal. This is absurd--because there is no
place in nature for such a GOD.
Plotinus, nothing had any real existence but GOD--this is when we use the word
on the level of God-existence--that all things, forces, energies, and laws in
this universe are creations created by the internal activity of God--of His
Consciousness. This creative phenomenon is best explained as follows: No man can
see his own face without the use of a mirror of some kind. Likewise, God, when
starting a cycle of activity, cannot, Himself see without some substance to
is no other substance except that which belongs to the God-consciousness to
serve as a mirror. Thus, it steps out of itself--out of its own center--for
self-examination, and looks within.
an intellectual is created by God perceiving the images existing within its own
substance. So, the activity, which is at the periphery towards the center--its
radiant field--has created the Universal Mind. This is a demonstration of the
"As above, so below." For this is the way man prays--by direction of
his own thoughts to his own center--the center of His consciousness--the Heart.
the Holy Bible, Ezekial 18:14, "Behold, all souls are mine, the Soul of the
Father as well as the Soul of the Son is mine; the Soul that sins shall
objects present us only with appearances of these. Therefore, we may say we
possess opinion rather than knowledge. We are interested in appearances only
because they are reflections of the patterns of the unseen world. Our question
lies with the ideals in the Mind of God that exists behind appearances.
they without us, and is the reason, like sensation, occupied with objects
external to itself? What assurances do we have that our perception is
infallible? The object perceived would be something different from the mind
should have, then an image instead of the true picture in the Mind of the
Father. It would be out of all proportions with Nature--to believe for a moment
that the mind was unable to perceive ideal truth exactly as it is. We do not
have a certainty of God-knowledge concerning the world of intelligence. It
follows, therefore, that this region of truth is not to be investigated as a
thing external to us--thus, only imperfectly known. It is within us.
the objects we contemplate, and that which contemplates are identical--both are
thought. The subject cannot surely know an object different from itself.
world of ideas lies within our intelligence. Truth, therefore, is not the
agreement of our apprehension of an external object with the object, itself. It
is the agreement of mind with itself. Consciousness, therefore, is the sole
basis of certainty.
mind is its own witness. Reason sees in itself that which is above itself as its
source and again, that which is below itself once more. Therefore, it is a fact
that God does exist--as we only know it--because we can only know what God knows
in His Mind as our mind is only an individualized part of Godís Mind.
GOD IS A MATERIAL FACT IN THE REALM OF HIS LEVEL OF CONSCIOUSNESS.
