of Life Lessons
all the Bible teachings, the most misunderstood is life. When someone says,
"Life," the first thing a person thinks of is this world and the
things they have encountered while they were in the world.
a carpenter, Life would consist of him getting up at a certain time each
morning, eating, and going to the job, finishing his work in the evening, going
home, having his dinner meal, and then having an evening of TV, or something of
most people, Life is a combination of experiences which lead up to his
understanding of other people and other places. In reality, this is not Life at
all; this is his understanding.
is movement of power within your own body. Life is a force and not a concept or
the Bible, Jesus said that if you lose your Life, you shall have eternal Life.
When a person gives up the idea of himself having his own personal time--his
personal understanding of things--he lets it all go and gives himself up totally
over to the Creator. Then he will feel the surge of power run through his whole
being; then he will begin to live of the Creator.
the Great Christ--the Son/Sun of God--is the source of all Life. The Christ
gives Life to the animal kingdom, the vegetable kingdom, to man, and to all
definitely have Life for they grow. They propagate themselves, but they do not
think. They do not build their own mental concepts. So, life is not a mental
concept. It is the living, moving, dynamic power and force running through your
body without thought--without concept.
biggest trouble is his own opinions. He will--with his half-blinded physical
eyes--see the world and proclaim his opinion on things he only half sees. And,
he will label these things scientific facts.
is universal because it has one great source. Therefore, all things that contain
Life are truly linked together.
you let go of your opinions of a race, a creed, or color, and look into, or at
another man without labeling him with any of your biases, or
narrow-mindedness--just take him as he is--you will feel, see, and know that you
two are not as separate as you feel and look. This does not mean you are him and
he is you, but this is the explanation of unity and the Brotherhood of man just
as cells within the body are closely knit together. You and all of mankind are
closely knit together through the Christ.
Great Christ permeates the earth with Light, Life, and Love through the Lord
Jesus. Jesus is the channel of Life for the earth. Man must become conscious of
this reality, because, until he does, he will remain dead.
the Bible, Jesus talked about the living dead. These are people who walk and
think, but who have not the power of the Christ running through their bodies.
For it is this force and power that regenerates your physical body.
to a lack of Life-force and power, man is plagued by the dis-ease of old age.
Old age is deterioration of the physical body due to the lack of the Life-force.
who knows God and knows the Lord Jesus Christ will never grow old because he
will have the Life-force running through his body continually which will keep
him healthy, wealthy, young, and wise.
teachings of Jesus Christ are real! As for those who do a lot of talk, you can
see their fruits by the shape of their physical bodies--because if they are
growing old, they havenít known Jesus, or the Great Creator, or it [the aging]
would never have taken place.
For what man looks at these rolling spheres
After through life he has tread this earth in pairs
And thinks to himself all the time that he has been
Away in mind, when life I was looking to express.
Another body I sought
That I might the Creatorís works have wrought
In the dayless, nightless march of time
Tis but the following out of the pattern in Godís
Science knows the things it finds
On the narrow bend of the spectrum line.
But the mystic scientist, when his light shows strong
Seldom upon a path goes wrong.
For the range of his spectrum is wide and bold
And its evolution can be foretold
Man, O Man, the crawling ant
With the power so great, so small.
According to his understanding of it all
Reach out and observe these moving orbs
For as you do in your brother, youíll become
For thus we have but one Law to work,
Be it English, Russian, or Turk
When man creates, he is enfolded
In Godís great world of work unfolded.
