governing spirit mind control which brings to us our likes and dislikes and is
the foundation of spiritual healing and its many ramifications.

which does not vary nor does it err.
law is in the mind of God; it was in his mind when he created this universe.
It is in his mind yesterday, today, and forever.

Let us assure you that here in this universe of pure spirit which is
filled with warmth and color which produces warmth.
