Understand this: The God we know is like a great whirling vortex, out of which comes spirit. This spirit is like a sea, and man is a fish swimming in this sea. This what we might call the ocean of love and mercy.
When the mind of man is illuminated, he becomes a part of God, the realization of the absolute. Illumination comes through waiting upon the Lord, that is, by resting in the consciousness of the omnipresence. It is not through struggle, effort, supplication, or merit.
The higher a soul travels the spiritual path, the less its burdens become, and the easier it is to change swiftly from one course to another. A mind that moves with random speed works in the field of randomity.
God never established an exclusive group for the liberation of man. He has given the power to many for the particular way back to his kingdom. There are certain paths that one must follow, some better than others, because the masses of these particular ways have developed the resources for their chelas in seeking the way. This is because men are at all sorts of levels of consciousness and not all can follow one universal way.
Each man's world is a solid thought or materialized mindstuff. The idea is to bring into expression the good and beautiful. This is done by getting the good and beautiful properly arranged in the consciousness.
So we come to the most important part of life's message. It is not what we do that determines our experience in life, but it is what we expect. Even if you have done all the correct things, and still maintain the haunting fear that things will go wrong, they will go wrong. Is it because you are bad, sinful, or evil? No. It is because you have the belief.
Now you are coming into the level of understanding wherein we cease trying to demonstrate things but, rather, move into a greater expression and find that the things we need are already supplied. We demonstrate the giver and not the gift. We demonstrate God and not the things of God.
Saints, devils and credulous fools are made of the same identical stuff. They all have visions. They see these truths from different aspects. Devils exploit stupidity. They create blinding fear that gives them power over others. Such fear inflates the devil's feeling of importance and it makes the fools thing that the devils are the only safe leaders to follow. But the visions of the saints, like prisms letting light into darkness, diffuses the material fog, the fog that blinds the best of man and makes men victims of want, disease, crime. The visions of the saints let in affluence and magnanimity and vigor. Naturally, the devils hate this. If they can't pervert the saint's vision to their own ends, they try to destroy it.
One of the most prevalent misunderstandings is that the law of God works only for those who have a devout or religious objective. This is a fallacy. It works just as impersonally as the law of electricity works. It can be used for greed or selfish purposes as well as for noble tasks. But hold in mind that ignoble thoughts and cautions inevitably result in unhappy consequences.
The secret of harmonious love is the development of the spiritual consciousness, as nay spiritual traveler will tell us. In this consciousness, fear and anxiety disappear and life becomes meaningful, with fulfillment as its keynote. The individual becomes a dweller in the higher consciousness.
The authorities put a great deal of emphasis on rituals, moral codes, and laws, but seldom do they speak about rising above good and evil, of love and hate, or polarizing upon the dichotomy of good. This is one of the most subtle points of life.
The power of attention is the measure of the inner force. Concentrated observation of one thing shuts out other things and causes them to disappear. The great secret of being spiritually minded is to focus the attention of the feeling of spirituality without permitting any distraction. All progress depends on the increase in the attention span of time. The ideas which impel you to action are those which dominate the consciousness, those which possess the attention.
To the unenlightened this will seem to be all fantasy, yet progress comes from those who do not take accepted views nor accept the world as it is. When we set out to master the a movement of attention, which must be done if we would successfully alter the course of observed events, it is then we realize how little control we exercise over the mind and how much it is dominated by sensory impressions and by being adrift on tides of other men's considerations and environmental moods.
A tense person is wrapped up in himself, his immediate family, the events of the past, the prospects of his future, or how he is regarded by other people.
What does this tension do? It grips. It causes a stranglehold on the channels within him. It cuts off thinking. It is useless for such a person to relax physically as long as he continues to center the mind upon himself. This stranglehold will be there every minute, day and night. When we learn to love others as ourselves, the attention will be focused outwardly, and therefore we will become relaxed. There will be no stranglehold within and the mind will become free.
God gave us dominion through consciousness, and this consciousness which is the creative principle of our body, must also be its sustaining and maintaining principle.
Once you have this principal, you have caught the entire principle of life. Literally, this is the law of life, the substance, what activity, the intelligent directions of life which is within man as well as outside.
We only have to prove this in some one direction and we shall have proved it in every direction. The whole secret lies in the word "heart" or what we call consciousness. An intellectual knowledge of the fact that God is all is of no value. The only value any truth has is the agree of its realization. If we are conscious of the presence of the Lord, if we are conscious of the activity of God, then so it is unto us.
It makes no difference what a man becomes. Greater men than the bishops of the churches have become beggars, not cardinals. Nevertheless, one can become great in God and save many a poor wretch from hopelessness.
Knowledge is one thing, virtue is another. Philosophy, no matter how enlightening it may be, gives no command over the passions, no influential motives, no inescapable principles. It is not worth much in the crises of mankind.
True happiness is a sensation of momentary balance. When man remembers who, and what he really is, he does not wrong and injures no one. Even his worst mistakes turn out to help others and they become profitable lessons for all.
Gradually as man struggles toward God, the illusion of this life loses it hypnotic grip. We begin to be free to think clearly and to solve problems sanely. We leave off trying to fill holes with shadows. Instead, we try to fill them with ideas that develop their own substance. So it follows that anyone seeing profit, is committing spiritual treason. This is why spies and criminals who use clairvoyance, as many of them consciously do, invariably meet disaster. Clairvoyance perverted to treacherous ends becomes spiritual suicide. Sometimes it leads one into the madhouse. It is always, without any exception, without any possible exception, ruinous to the one who misuses it.
Let it be know here and now that all knowledge and all wisdom is never given to a soul. For the world of God is without beginning and without ending, infinite in attributes and qualities, and constantly expanding toward the greater truth and greater Wisdom.
If one prays for an object or desire, verily, it shall come unto him because his mind shall create what he desires. But the true consciousness should never be blinded by that which the intellect devises. When anyone prays to get something, he is acted upon. And if he prays to have his senses acted upon by any outer source, then how will this bring one any true spirituality?
Act, rather that we might give mastership qualities which are already within us. As we unfold constantly to give, we are not unfolding to have our senses acted upon. We are unfolding to give all that we our senses are capable of giving. Then shall our lives be transformed.
And in the transformation, we shall realize all of the capabilities, all of the gifts, all of the demonstrations of life which are radiated by those in the spiritual worlds.
Spirituality is not attained by denying the world, nor by affirming the spiritual world. Spirituality is, because there has never been a time in the world, in the true world, where God, or spirituality, was not.
Illusions are like mistresses. We can have many of them without tying ourselves down to responsibilities. But truth insists on marriage. Once a person embraces truth, he is in its ruthless but gentle grasp.
God is love; God is life: god is spirit: God is all. That is true whether we are saints or sinners. it is true whether we are young or old, Jew, Gentile, Oriental, or Occidental, regardless of creed or color. There is no way in which God can be left out of his own universe, nor can we leave ourselves out of it.
God is: there is always a God. This God is infinite in nature, eternal, universal, impersonal, impartial, and omnipresent. How do we bring God into our individual experience? We must know and practice the principal of the heavenly kingdom until we become proficient in this application. It must be in our God experience. God is and God is here and God is now. But God is available only in proportion to our realization and willingness to accept the discipline that is necessary for the attainment of that selfhood we call God realization.
We must say to ourselves, to God: show us what we must do in order to avail ourselves to this principle, this life, this love and to live the life of should. When we have reached this stay of readiness, we have begun to travel the path which leads to spiritual consciousness.
Unless we feel the actual presence of God then, as far as we are concerned, we do not have realization of this spirit. It is like electricity, which is everywhere, just as the spirit of God is, but electricity is of little use or value to anyone unless it is connected in some way for his particular use. So it is with the spirit of god It is everywhere in an absolute, spiritual sense, but it is only effective in our experience to the extent to which it is realize.
It is possible for anyone to change the trend of his life, not by hearing or reading truth, but by making it an active part of his consciousness in daily experience, until it becomes a habit every minute of the day, instead of an occasional thought. Let God operate in the consciousness morning, noon, and night, until gradually the actual awareness comes. Then we make the transition from being here of word to being doers of the word. Then we shall be living in the world and shall gather in the harvest of souls.
