THE WORD (2)
In the beginning was God, and we are not interested,
of course, where God began, or when. But
we are interested in God, for it was the Word He gave that is the creative
Cause, first started in function.
And this also is the beginning of any created thing, either of God, the Hierarchy, or man.
one might say that in the beginning, then, we have the springtime of the
planting of the Seed of Causation, before any objective is created.
This reality, to which we have given the name God, is an ever-present
fact in every man's experience.
Word as spoken of by the Father, the infinite and universal Creative Spirit, is
the activation of a symbolism, in reality, which contains imagination,
knowingness, and intelligence, coupled with what you will learn of as the Law,
in the second level of the tools of man.
Law is the format which is the self-exacting intelligence of the Spirit.
This is why we said that the Spirit was the personality of the Father in
this intelligence and its symbolic format exists the potentiality of the
function of everything which exists. This
is but saying that God is absolute intelligence, limitless imagination, with the
all-encompassing consciousness of complete self-expression.
the Spirit makes things out of itself, through the inner act upon itself, which
is the act of God's Word, being acted on in consciousness.
other words, it is the inner consciousness of the Father acting upon itself,
thus releasing the power into a given form or symbolism.
the nature of this spirit, its own nature, there is a law obeying the will of
we speak a great deal about self-contemplation, it is well to analyze exactly
what we mean by it. Self-contemplation
is an awareness of the core of Self, being conscious of its duality as absolute
nothing, and absolute everything. An
inner sense of Being, thus is the Word of the Father transmitted through us, and
His Word must therefore be completed. For
this is the original Cause working through the sound of our mind and voice.
God must forever be expressing. God's
expression must always be harmonious and perfect.
And perfect are our answers, and they will be, that is self-evident, as
they come from the Self in proportion to the original creative Cause.
Were it to be anything but perfect, it would be self-destructive.
words are symbolism, and when we use the word, the First Cause becomes evident
in the absolute intelligence of God, and the Spirit motivates, and thus reality
starts its process through the vehicles, conveying the meaning back of the
words. And in this instant, the
meaning is and must be for the Universal Creative Intelligence which was never
completely form, and which never came completely into being, continues to
simplified this in his words, "For the words that I speak unto you, I speak
not of myself, but the Father that dwelleth in me, He doeth the works."
this is the Mind of God working in us, and through us, for God can work for us
only by working through us.
power of God, Creative power in the universe, that manifests itself through
imagination, will, and feeling. As the Creative Mind of the Universe operates
upon itself through its will, imagination, and feeling, it creates forms which
are subject to it, and its law, but which have no reality apart from the Mind
which creates them.
It is the creative Mind that Jesus used, and that we may all use for conscious purposes, as man as we know him, and have the consciousness of self-knowingness.
