“No Thought”

      The air inside of a vase takes the shape of the vase automatically. If it were possible to withdraw the air entirely and create a vacuum—a perfect vacuum—the vase would collapse. The pressure of the air on the outside would be too great to be with­stood. Applying this illustration to your everyday problem, take your thought away […]

“Take No Thought I”

  One of the things which marks the Master’s career with extraordinary merit is the abandon with which he gave himself up to right thinking. So complete was his faith, his understanding that his attitude of mind might be typified as “take no thought.” It is pleasant when one comes to you and says, “I […]

“Take No Thought II”

You have heard the story of the centipede who was getting on very nicely in life until the cricket asked him how he knew which foot to put forward first. This set him to thinking so hard that he lost the use of his legs and was unable to move at all. There is a wonderful point in this bit of […]

“Taking Thought”

WE are taught concentration; we are taught relaxation; and we are taught to speak as one having authority; but until we obey the Law which says: “And I say unto you, take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat or what ye shall drink; nor yet for your body what ye shall put […]

“Who By Taking Thought”

You are asked a very pertinent and definite question. “Who by taking thought can …?” Thought is like a rope tied to a captive balloon. An Idea is borne in upon you. You either accept it, or take thought about it. If you take thought about it – nothing but frustration happens. The energy that is used […]

A Tight Place

He was in a “tight” place-He told me he had a Cross in his “chart,” and ever so often, when it came to a certain point, caused very evil things to come about for him. He said if it were not for a trine in his chart (which came at the same time) there would […]

About Translation

Enoch was translated. We are prone to make supernatural the idea of “Translation.” We are always looking for something unnatural to happen when God comes into expression. The most unpredictable things can take place and do take place all the time, — and we accept them without question. Witness the “transformation” that took place at […]

Abundance I

I went into a London club during the Christmas week, and the hostess told me that a member had left money for ten free teas. The giver had said that probably ten hungry people would come along and be glad to have them. It was at a time when the newspapers were full of accounts of the huge army of unemployed, hungry people, but no one came for the teas, and the […]

Abundance II

“HE WHICH SOWETH SPARINGLY shall reap sparingly; and he which soweth bountifully shall reap bountifully. Every man according as he purposeth in his heart, so let him give; not grudgingly or of necessity: for God loveth a cheerful giver.” The sowing lavishly and abundantly comes from the knowledge of Infinite Substance. The sowing for increase in order that the storehouses may be filled, and the soul […]

Accept The Good

When you accept the good that is yours, without discussion, without anxiety, without prying into the method of attainment, then you will begin to experience things you formerly called demonstrations, with such regularity that the heart of you will sing a lovely new silent-audible song. It is wonderful! Everything is all right with you.  Do you hear? […]

Accepting and Rejecting

EACH man, sooner or later learns that life, to a large extent, is made up of accepting and rejecting things. I need not explain that all this process is first mental. No gift is ever a gift until it is accepted; yet all things in the universe are gifts. “Every good gift and every perfect gift is […]


In a recent expose on the Aramaic language, (which, as you know is the language of Jesus) one finds the word adultery has largely to do with pregnancy. That the real adultery was the act of copulation after conception had taken place. This of course does not in any sense invite license. We know that all prayer that is made in consciousness is […]


“Two shall agree as touching anything and it shall be established on the earth” —- in other words, it shall have a body and form. An in­visible agreement shall be given a vehicle of expression. This power of agreement is given to man. It is within the possibility of anybody who dares to understand and […]

Art Thou?

ART THOU a Christian–? And Jesus enumerated the works of spirit and we can well imagine the eyes of Nicodemus grew wide with wonderment because when Jesus spoke, it was the WORD that fused with his words and made them take shape and form as he spoke-but Nicodemus, still filled with wonder, asked: “How can these things be?” The answer Jesus gave him […]


He made Himself as GOD.” What are you going to do about it—crucify Him again? Remembering that you crucified Him once before for doing the same thing, what will you do with the Second Coming of the Principle of Christ Jesus? Un­less He had “made Himself as God” He could not have done the works of God, but would have […]

At the Feet of the Master

“AND they found him clothed, and in his right mind, sitting at the feet of the Master.” They found that maniac who had been living in the tombs; who had torn himself in anguish; who had frightened others; “clothed, and in his right mind, sitting at the feet of the Master.” The story of the […]


“Wake! For the Sun who scattered into flight …..” might have been said by Jesus Christ instead of the Persian Omar. And so does he give us the picture of the spreading Dawn of Life. If you have ever been on the desert at sunrise, you will know what takes place. Suddenly, at the very […]

Be Still

“Be Still, and Know That I Am God.” Suddenly, for the first time I began to see or hear what BE STILL meant. It is a letting go of every desire-every wish or idea-a blankness. When this is established, the Power of God has the unobstructed way of expression and comes through into manifestation. Manifestation […]

Before You Ask…

…I Will Answer   “BEFORE you ask I will answer, and while you are yet speaking I shall give it unto thee.” A statement purely of fourth­ dimensional capacities, since no amount of human reasoning can arrive at such a possi­bility. It is impossible from the human standpoint to be answered before having asked the question, and to receive the finished results before the request. […]

Beggars of Life

LEAN on ME.” Direct, simple, unin­volved, isn’t it? An invitation which, if accepted, would instantly cause you to cease the useless “leaning ” upon persons, organizations, books, etc. But first it is necessary to understand this ME, to recognize this ME, to become one with this ME, before you can accept such a glorious invitation. In the Apocrypha, in the Book of Ecclesiasticus, we […]

Behold I Come Quickly

“BEHOLD, I come quickly and My reward is with Me.” The reward,like the answer to prayer, is “Be­fore you ask.” This is so entirely beyond the ken of humanity that nothing but confusion results from an attempt to think it out. There is nothing in all your human thinking or intellect that can conceive of an answer before the request or question is asked, […]

Behold! What Manner of Love

“BEHOLD! what manner of Love the Father hath bestowed upon us.” Suddenly the light of revelation breaks through the clouds of human belief. The “BEHOLD,” as we see it here, is a command to look upon something. There is no element of trying to change or make, or shape things into a new and different […]

Between Two Opinions…

 …How Long Halt Ye?   ELIJAH THE PROPHET said unto the people: “How long halt ye between two opinions? If the Lord be God, follow Him; but if Baal, then follow him.” It is recorded, “But the people answered him not a word.” The reason they answered not a word is that they were afraid to “choose ye this day,”—they did […]

Blessed Are The Meek

THE HYPNOSIS of this statement when taken from the human standpoint is already too well­ known to make further comment. Thousands of people, many sincere, but many insincere, have thought by being “meek” they would inherit the earth. Later on—a good deal later—they find they have inherited nothing but the backwash of life and that their diet is composed of the “crumbs” under the […]

Born Again

“MARVEL not ye must be born again.” The definite statement of what must take place before you can enter into the Kingdom of Heaven here and now made manifest, is little heeded by the average Truth student. He does not stop to see or realize that in order to do the works that Jesus said […]

Breaking Patterns

“FORMER THINGS have passed away—behold, all things are become new.” Former ideas about truth are yielding to the new order, the new day. Old patterns are recognized as false, and are crumbling away, disintegrating before the Presence—the Life—the new Revelation. It is wonderful! The moment you “See” with the spiritual eye, you will perceive there is no more healing to take place—only revelation. In […]

Breaking The Bread

Five thousand hungry men, far from food and shelter. Five thousand men in the desert-hungry—calling for bread; and only five barley loaves. The nearest food depot miles away. Dozen of empty vessels, all crying out to be filled —great, yawning, ugly black vacuums of debt and want, and only a few drops of oil in the cruse. Great stretches of parched […]

But Why Should This Happen To Me?

DURING the last month I have had half a hundred letters all asking the question, “But why should this happen to me”—or “Out of ‘a clear sky such and such a thing happened to me.” And then the recita­tion of some pretty terrible happenings followed. We are in the last days of the present regime, and the Spirit has troubled the muddy […]

By My Spirit

“NOT BY MIGHT nor by power, but by MY spirit saith the Lord.” It is not by trying or forcing, nor yet by doing nothing and waiting for the manifestation that it comes into being, but by MY SPIRIT. By the Spirit which moves on the face of the deep and reveals that which is […]


“FOR UNTO us a child is born, and his name shall be called Wonderful, the mighty, the counselor, the everlasting, and the government shall be upon his shoulders, and of his reign there shall be no end.” So beloved to you who read this page, at this very instant great floods of spiritual light are breaking over you. The soul of you […]

Clouds Without Rain

“The signs shall follow,” they do not precede, is one of the most dynamic statements of the Scriptures. There is a certainty about it that is reassuring. It does not say maybe or perhaps. It says the “signs shall follow.” And yet hundreds—yea, thou­sands—are “working” in metaphysics to make the signs precede. The phenomenon of Spirit, or the word made flesh, of which Jesus so often spoke, is the desire taking on form and shape. When […]

Come – Eat And Drink

“COME, eat and drink without money and without gold.” The invitation is to all. It is written in such a way that “He that runs may read,” and yet we pass it by, and hurry along into the crowded city to beg for crust. “The Cattle on a thousand hills are mine, and if I […]

Concerning Angels And Heavenly Hosts

CONCERNING ANGELS and HEAVENLY HOSTS JESUS SAID, “Think ye not that I could call upon My Father and He would send twelve legions of angels”. Had He called, some sixty thousand would have appeared, visible to the mob trying to destroy the only real teaching ever to come to earth. Do you believe this? It […]

Concerning Immortality

There is so much talk of and about immortality in the Bible. Jesus emphasized the idea by repetition: “This is life eternal that they might know thee, the only true God” – and “If a man keep my saying, he shall never see death.” Yet all religions seem to end at the crucifixion. The space between immortality […]


Transformation takes place when the Mental is released into the Spiritual. You become conditioned to reality. That which emanates from the mind of God is designated as LIGHT, GRACE, GLORY. What comes out of the brain machine is constructed of all the limitations of judging from appearances, ancestor teachings, and superstitions. The only possible way to escape […]

Conquest of Fear

Fear can manifest only because of a belief in separation.  As long as you are something apart from God you will experience, in one form or another, fear.  It is subtle and hidden like a poisonous serpent coiled in the grass, liable to strike at any time–at the most unguarded moment, when least expected. Its […]


From consciousness flows a never-end­ing stream of light which in turn manifests itself in all sorts of by-products. Take, for example, the con­sciousness that the world at large has of Lincoln, and then try to list or catalog the books, plays, articles, anecdotes and sayings which have flown therefrom, to say nothing of the statues, paintings […]


He that hath the true fear of God in his heart hath no room therein for any other fear. -CROMWELL.   As every positive word has a negative counterpart and interpretation, so the word “fear,” which is the ghastly hydra­-headed monster that besets the footsteps of man from cradle to grave. It has a thou­sand different titles […]

Darkness – Oneness

And then, ever so gradually from a deep, deep sleep, I became conscious of awakening—slowly, half deliberately; effortlessly as though arising from the bottom of a river. There was something delightfully refreshing about it all, as if one had come to the perimeter of sleep and lay there drifting, floating on the surface. All around […]


The whole thing started this way—Jane went out to dinner. Not that it was anything unusual for Jane to go out to dinner; she was always doing that, having a penchant for dining (which is perhaps a common trait of most human beings) ; but some way or other it was an eternally new stunt with her, for she sought as her companions men of […]

Devitalizing Evil

“I CAME to fulfill, not to destroy” – there is nothing to be destroyed in all the Holy Mountain. Not even the devil; nor even the sickness, poverty, and hateful bondage of human life. Nothing is to be destroyed. It is to be fulfilled. The egg is not destroyed when it becomes a bird, the […]


“Enter into thy closet, and —shut thy door.” Michelangelo sometimes sat before a canvas days before he made a stroke upon it, and then it happened. The picture virtually painted itself, using his hands as a means of expression. Jesus said: “It is done” before it was started. This recognition took care of it all. […]

Entering The Kingdom

“Go in and possess the land” is a command as necessary to fulfill as any of the others, and yet it gets side-tracked for the simple reason that no one apparently knows HOW to go in. The more questioning that takes place as to the how of the way of God, the more impossible it all becomes, for “No man knoweth–not even the son, but […]


“EXCEPT ye become as a little child ye shall in no wise enter the Kingdom of Heaven.” The statement is exact, uninvolved, and leaves no loophole of personal interpretation through which you could edge your way. Except ye become as a little child — and by no other means — can you enter. Adulterers are barred from the Kingdom […]


On the Importance of Being Alone ALONENESS  “And all nations shall call you blessed: for ye shall be a delightsome land, saith the Lord of Hosts.”  Ye, the newborn, the resurrected one.  In the silence, in the tomb, in the aloneness, shall ye know the things which ordinarily are not written nor spoken of — things […]

False Prophets

“AND THE WORD of the Lord came unto me saying:” “Son of man prophesy against the prophets of Israel that prophesy, and say unto them that prophesy out of their own hearts. HEAR YE THE WORD OF THE LORD.” In the twinkling of the eye all the necromancy of the human prophets goes zig-zagging down into Hell—into the flames of purification—into the Ge­henna (the […]

Fate – Destiny

BORN OF WOMAN”—“is of few days”—“filled with trouble.” “Conceived in sin, born in iniquity.” Condemned from the start. There is little cheer to be found in looking forward, and less in looking backward. The vicious circle into which the human life has worked itself is nothing to contemplate with pleasure. Such lovely and delightful things as: “As for man, his days acre few […]


We have selected this chapter due to the revelation that is presented on the subject of UNBELIEF, as is manifested through FEAR. If God is ABSOLUTE, then the ONE and only Power of the universe “embraces” the Law of LOVE; that Power through LOVE, which IS your inheritance,  is manifested within YOU.  You are made […]

First Person, Present Tense

TALKING of and about truth, and speaking the TRUTH are radically different things. The first is merely rehearsing the letter which is dead and not effective. The latter is the “spake and it was done” state of consciousness. Jesus spoke the truth in the present tense and first person, and results or mani­festation immediately followed. “He made himself as God”—in other words He spoke as one […]

For God So Loved the World

“When you are ready– I will do the works through you.” “For GOD so loved the world that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”  Suddenly, like a burst of light that pierces the dark clouds of night, comes the revelation that God so […]


“When you are ready– I will do the works through you.” “For GOD so loved the world that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” Suddenly, like a burst of light that pierces the dark clouds of night, comes the revelation that God so […]

From Walking Up and Down 

And To and Fro… BUT where did evil come from in a perfect world? And how did it all happen-the leaving of the Garden of Eden, and all these false ideas that man has accepted and under which he has functioned? A thousand questions of this kind surge through the mind of the Seeker of Truth. He has a right […]

Fulfilled Promises

“THE open Fount is free to all. God’s promises are kept.” So runs the hymn. Do you believe it? Do you believe the promises of God are kept? If you say “yes,” you are automatically saying that you are in Heaven, Here and Now. If you say “yes,” you are admitting that you have abundant health, wealth, and happiness, and you are saying, with the full import of the words, ” It is Wonderful ! “ When man awakens from the […]

Glorify Thou Me I

“Father, glorify Thou Me with Thine own Self with the glory which I had with Thee before the world was,” is the prayer for the final manifestation in the flesh, of the WORD. It is a wonderful revelation, to note that Jesus is not asking for something new and strange to happen to Him. He […]

Glorify Thou Me II

“AND Now, Father, glorify thou me with Thine own self, with the glory I had with Thee before the world was.” This is the prayer that brings the answer, “Be thou glorified,” for “whatsoever you ask in this nature, that give I unto thee.” And this asking to be glori­fied with the glory that was already yours before […]

God in Action

God in action is a never-ending stream of manifestation: In the world of “taking thought” against which Jesus warned man, it is possible to conceive of the action of Spirit without manifestation, just as it is possible to conceive of the technique, rhythm, tempo, melody, and notation of a concerto and experience nothing audible. “Clouds without rain” […]

God Requires the Past

WHAT Of your past? Are you still carrying it along with you — the things you overcame and the demonstrations you made? If God requires the past, when are you going to walk through the waters of forgetfulness and let the dead past bury its past? When you have sensed the ever out-picturing of the […]

God Winked

“Forasmuch then, as we are the off-spring of God, we ought not to think that the Godhead is like unto gold, or silver, or stone, graven by art and man’s device. “And the times of this ignorance God winked at; but now commandeth all men everywhere to repent.” THERE IS A TIME WHEN a child is excused […]

He Breathed

“… He breathed on them, and saith unto them, Receive ye the Holy Ghost.” From that instant of the Divine breath, they were able to do the works. He had entered through a closed door and made it plain to them that he was something other than a vaporous spirit – manifestation: – for he asked for food, and […]

He Made Darkness His Secret Place

We ignorantly worship God as made in the Image and Likeness of man. His capacities are limited and his mind is given to all the ugliness of human thought. “Who hath known the mind of the Lord?” The infinite reaches of His intelligence cannot be more than glimpsed by the finite mind. It is only […]

He Openeth His Hand

“Thou openest thine hand, and satisfiest the desire of every living thing.” With this overshadowing comes the peace that passeth ALL. An osmosis – absorption – a blending; into the ONE takes place and there is no longer question and answer, problem and solution. “Thou openest thine hand, and satisfiest the desire of every living thing” becomes a […]

I Am Immortal

We have selected this chapter for the depth in positional reality. The question arises, “What is Union?” The Truth Seeker becomes ONE with God, through Christ. In Oneness, we are positioned to say, “I AM.” Lanyon clearly defines this position as he states,” VOLTAIRE once cynically remarked, ‘Since God created man in His own image how […]

I Am The Light

“I am the Light of the world”—A light that “shineth in darkness and the darkness comprehendeth it not.”  So is it with the I AM of you.  Once discovered and identified as YOU, it brings a LIGHT unto this “world” of human thought-taking shadows.  The moment this is established, you will begin to experience the […]

I Come Not To Destroy

“I come not to destroy, but to fulfill.” The I, when it is once discovered and recognized as the point where the invisible becomes visible, comes not to destroy but to fulfill the vacuum of human thinking. All evil is but the vacuum of belief——belief in a place or condition where God is not——-and the Presence of God does not come […]

I Will Not Let You Go

I WILL NOT let you go until you bless me”—so speaks Jacob after struggling all night with his problem. He had come through his labors in the darkness of human thought and reasoning — “but when the morning came”—(when he had light to see his freedom as an established thing in spirit) he was then ready to “loose him and let him […]

If Any Man

“If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow ME.” This invitation to follow after ME carries with it the ability to take up the “cross” which is the power to “x” out all the beliefs and appearances of beliefs under which man has labored so long. The recognition of this Presence, this […]

If I Be Lifted Up

“IF I BE lifted up I will draw all men unto me.” This “up” state of consciousness is the secret formula for materializing Heaven here and now. The Automatic Power immediately “draws” all manifestation into visibility. It might be likened unto a magnet drawing all things unto it. The quotation reads, “All Men unto me.” […]

If You Think You Are Alone

“And if I go, I shall come again and receive you unto Myself.” Fret not if you find yourself standing alone for a moment – “I shall never leave you.”  “And if I go, I shall come (into manifestation) again and receive you unto Myself.”  I shall be wedded to the body. I shall become […]

Imprisoned Splendor

The Imprisoned Splendor in every man is IMMORTALITY, — so magnificently released by Jesus in His SELF-resurrection. In order to show man the nothingness of the ‘thought world’, He used Himself as a human guinea-pig, — submitting to the ways of human thinking. Thus day by day He built the inevitable tomb which would one […]

In Him

Man lives in God yet he does not see God — for it is written that “no man shall see God and Live.” The moment he SEES the degree of God in which he lives, he discovers the nothingness of things and “dies” to them, only to arise to a higher degree of consciousness, and […]

In The Beginning

The Greeks went back to chaos. The Buddhists went back to the great nothingness, the great emptiness. The Christian goes back to “the VOID.” “The earth was without form and void.” From this point of the unformed, was all things made that were made to appear. When the great Revelator, Jesus Christ, said, “Be­fore Abraham was I AM,” He went back to a point beyond any form […]

It Is Done

“FOLLOW ME.” At this stage of your ongoing it is “All or nothing.” Either you are going to “Follow ME,” or you are still carrying in your packer “burden” some man-made ideas, beliefs or organizations. You are told to cast your “burdens” on ME —the burden of accumulated beliefs which have crystallized and become hard and fast shells […]

Karmic Law

“O God, that one might read the book of fate, And see the revolutions of the time Make mountains level, and the continent, Weary of solid firmness, melt itself Into the sea!”   When they asked Jesus: “Who did sin, this man or his parents, that he was born blind?”  He answered: “Neither hath this […]

Law of Probability

The early day mathematical genius, Pascal, found human nature wasso complex it only could be understood by the Law of probability. That sounds about as abstract a basis upon which to depend as anything you can imagine. Probability is nowhere near possibility —it is nebulous to a point of almost worthlessness. What a basis from which to work. No wonder Jesus said human mind is a liar […]

Leave All – Follow Me

“Let not him who seeks cease until he finds, and when he finds he shall be astonished; astonished he shall reach the Kingdom, and, having reached the Kingdom, he shall rest.” “The Kingdom of Heaven is within you, and whosoever shall know himself shall find it; [strive therefore] to know yourselves and ye shall be aware that ye are the sons of the Almighty […]

Let God Let

“The Magic came to me at last — I discovered I was to Let God Let” — Somewhere hidden away in this line came the remembrance of LETTING. The God-Spake thing — “Let there be Light and there was Light” — and when the whole manifest creation proceeded in orderly fashion — all of it […]

Letting Go

   Perhaps one of the most difficult things to the growing student is the ability to let go. He makes — a reality of the very things which he wishes to over­come and in doing so hugs them to him with all his strength, when it is only necessary many times to let go and the thing which has been hurting or […]


“And a river went out of Eden to water the garden; and from thence it was parted, and became four heads. The name of the first is Pison; that is it which com­passeth the whole land of Havilah, where there is gold. And the gold of that land is good; there is bdellium and the onyx stone.” The “river” flowing from Eden is the consciousness which”compasseth the whole land.” It is that “urge” or […]

Living Waters

   “Running water never tires.”        “FOR MY PEOPLE have committed two evils; they have forsaken me the fountain of living waters, and hewed them out cisterns, broken cisterns, that can hold no water” (Jer. 2:13)      In this little verse lies hidden the reason for most of the difficulties of the human race. “My people,” you and I, have forsaken the Fountains […]

Lo and Behold

Behold! Behold! Behold! “I AM he that should come.” “Or look ye for another?” This is the question to be an­swered by each individual. Either you are beginning to see that it is necessary to find the Master within your own consciousness, or else continue wandering in the wilderness of human opinions and beliefs. “I AM HE that should come” settles once and for always the arguments […]

Man’s Extremity

IT IS written in the Law, — “Man’s extremity is God’s opportunity”. You have had your opportunity to make a success of your life, — and perhaps still find yourself outside the City Beautiful with no oil in your lamps. And finally you come to the place where you can neither beg, borrow nor steal […]

Man’s Extremity II

I RECEIVED a letter which ran: “I am writing you in desperation. I have a sister who is desperately ill. The doctor has operated, but found it impos­sible to move a malignant growth. Four doctors, including a specialist, say there is nothing more to be done….” “Man’s extremity is God’s opportunity.” When man has come to the place where there seems to be neither hope […]


The moment a thing is manifested it is on its way out. Draw a hundred dollars from the bank and it is gone. Before you draw it out, it is there — yet it is not there — not the actual hundred dollar bill. You do it all in “your name” — and the moment […]

Metaphysics and Mathematics

In many respects metaphysics is pure mathematics, and vice versa. X is the unknown quantity (unknown god whom ye ignorantly worship) which is sought and looked for by every earnest student. It remains unknown until the principle is properly applied and we perceive it as the very power which is doing the seeking. A beginner […]

Natural and Supernatural

     Everything that has to do with spirit has been label—Supernatural.  Therefore it has been entirely out of the reach of the so-called natural man.  Yet things that your forebears thought supernatural are today perfectly natural.  Formerly man thought that lightning was an evil power with which God punished evil-doers.  Today a three year […]

No Condemnation

“THERE is now therefore no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus.” Christ Jesus is the complete, whole manifestation—it is the Jesus who went unto his Father. The two halves of One—“I and my Father are One.” Where is the “Father,” and just what is this oneness or wholeness which is referred to? Jesus, stating that he could of himself […]

No Enchantment

     “Surely there is no enchantment against Jacob, neither is there any divination against Israel” (Num. 23:23)  “I shall overturn and overturn until he comes whose place it is to rule.”      This is the day when much is said about enchantment and divination — sometimes openly under these names, but more often referred […]

No Man Hath Revealed This Unto Thee

 No Man hath revealed this unto thee” or me. That which is coming through into man­ifestation in these latter days is not the result of some­thing revealed unto thee by man—it is the result of that which has been revealed to thee by the Father within. As soon as we begin to realize this even in a small way […]

No Word of God is Void of Power

The Power is always there. When man comes to realize this he will see how he has brought so many unhappy experiences into manifestation through misinterpreting the Power, thus seemingly causing it to act in a negative instead of a positive way; but he has misinterpreted the Power, and the Power always works. We see, then, that anything in the manifest world is held […]

None of These Things Move Me

The consciousness of “None things move me” is a complete blackout for all ap­pearances. It is a sudden elevation above what “seems to be” into the Place of what “actually is.” The Judging from appearances and the judging righteous judgment are two radically different things. One is judging from what you see with the limited […]


If anything can rend you sore it must come out of you­ even as it did out of the other lunatic who was sitting in the graveyard of his ancestors playing with their bones, their ideas, and beliefs. When the dumb spirit (the personalizing of evil in the individual) “rent him sore, and came out of him: […]

O Colorful One

     I AM the Great White Light in which all the visible and invisible color of the universe and heaven rest. My name is O Colorful One—I am full of light that is white and glistening and at the same time is multicolored and many-hued. My white light passes through the prism of human […]

O, That I Might Find Him

        MAETERLINCK symbolizes happiness by a blue bird and causes the seeker to go the world over searching for it, only to return home worn and tired to find the blue bird in his own garden.          Thousands of people make yearly pilgrimages to various shrines thinking to get a glimpse of […]


    Mind is infinite and you are a point in that Mind where it becomes conscious. You are not at any moment disconnected from this parent Mind, but as the islands are one with the earth and are merely an expression of the earth, or a portion of it drawn out into visibility from the complete sphere, so are you […]


There is only ONE operation — no matter how many times it is supposedly enacted by man, nor to what degree of belief. There is only ONE operation — and that is the OPERATION of GOD in his own universe. The moment separation takes place there are thousands of pseudo operations caused by the thought-taking […]

Ou Sont Les Neiges D’Antan

(But where are the snows of yesterday?) (Francois Villion)   But where are the snows of yesterday? Most of them have been incorporated into trees, plants, rivers and oceans — all of them changed in form. Where are the thousand and one lectures and Words of Truth you heard in yesteryears? Those vital, burning Words […]

Paradise Isles (Honolulu)

Millions of pale pink blossoms wafted into the jade green sea, were being thrown up on the golden sands in great festoons of white foam. For days the gentlest of breezes had been carrying them in rose colored clouds from the groves of flowering trees. In the distance purple points of land ran far out into the water, and black silhouetted coconut trees shot out […]


“MY peace I give unto you.” A gift is not a gift until it is accepted. It is strange that the world at large is attempting to buy with a price that which is given away. Peace, the great gift, is the one thing which will enable you to enter the kingdom, here and now. No noisy, clamouring mind shall find […]


“All power is given unto ME in heaven and in earth.” In spite of this, men still wonder if it is possible for God to set aside the evil in their lives; if it is possible for the All-power to neutralize the fearful problems that have come to them.  “All power is given unto ME […]


In an amusing article which appeared in the London Express, George Bernard Shaw says: “Lots of people pray for me; and I have never been any the worse for it. The only valid argument against the practice is the Glassite one that God knows his own business without any prompting.” Is prayer, then, a futile thing? Certainly anyone who acknowledges the fact that there is a God will likewise grant him the […]


After we have come this far, we are still reluctant to turn the matter of hard cold cash over to a mental process. There is something too uncertain, something which constantly reminds us that we must “work it out by the sweat of our brow.” But the fact is that we must resolve the whole […]

Reincarnation and You

       Ever since you tasted the Forbidden fruit and decided that you, too, were a creator-you have been bringing forth the “inventions” of the human mind—which though sometimes beautiful for the moment were always evil in the final analysis. All these false ideas of creation have been sustained by your belief, fed with the substance of human thinking.      You were created in the […]

Rejoice, Thou Barren One

     “FOR IT IS WRITTEN, Rejoice, thou barren that bearest not; break forth and cry, thou that travailest not; for the desolate hath many more children than she which hath an husband” (Gal 4:27).      Rejoice and be exceeding glad, for the Lord Omnipotent reigneth.      When we begin to see that the great […]

Resist Not (Part 1)

A MOTHER admonishing her son not to pull the cat’s tail was surprised to receive the answer, “I am not pulling her tail—- I am just holding it; she is doing the pulling.” Would you say that the cat was causing her own misery? She was doing a lot of struggling and resisting, at any rate. We […]

Resist Not (Part 2)

“RESIST not evil.” That which you resist is to you real. A thing that becomes real cannot be destroyed. That which you fight as evil, fights back with equal force, since it is but the reflex action of your own belief. A rubber ball thrown against a wall will return without effort on your part. The contour of a rubber ball is destroyed by grasping […]


EVERY man is a teacher, after one fashion or another, and many are teachers of the word of Jesus, of Buddha, of Mohammed. All teaching is of and about the subject. It is eternally the letter, dead and cold. Fused with the enthusiasm of the teacher, it becomes alive for the time, but lapses again […]

Scientific Truth

One of the great fallacies of this age is the mistaken belief that the teachings and revela­tions of Jesus Christ were scientific. So much has been written on this, trying to prove that science, which is purely relative and has to do with relative things, is of the same bone and structure as the power of Jesus Christ, that it has […]


The inflation of self instead of the recognition of the SELF has brought down all the evils to which the human mind is heir. When a man thinks he is something-he is nothing – is self inflation. “He must increase, I must decrease.” The human self is loath to let go and let the Golden Self come […]


SHADOWS        Since matter is the shadow of the Spirit (Spirit slowed down to a point of visibility) it likewise follows that matter and all manifestation is depending upon Spirit to sustain it. The moment the consciousness is withdrawn (the moment you let go of anything in consciousness) the manifestation begins to disintegrate and disappear. […]

Silver and gold

     “SILVER AND GOLD have I none, but such as I have give I thee.  Rise up and walk.”      A beggar sitting 40 years at the Temple Beautiful asking for silver and gold.  What for?  To consume, and then ask for more. The endless getting, and using, and being obliged to get more. […]

So You Won’t Talk?

So you won’t talk? Well, then you can take a City (new state of consciousness) — Not so bad for holding your tongue. Pretty sure of results too for the “Power of Life and death are in the tongue.” Sounds ominous doesn’t it? “Keep silent before ME” — why? “Well, you see my problem is”; […]

Soul and Body

SOUL AND BODY SUDDENLY THE REVELATION CAME, — -like a shaft of lightning striking a powder magazine. When the explosion of discovery was over, I realized for the first time that we, as a race of “truth-seekers” have been working in reverse. Strange too, — since we have followed to the best of our ability […]

Soul and Living Soul

AND He breathed into him the Breath of LIFE and he became a LIVING Soul. Ever think about it? No? Well. There must be some difference between Soul and Living Soul—and that difference is just this. Until you become conscious of the Permanent Identity with­in you—the Father within you—the real you, you are merely a SOUL, moving about in a body […]

Sound of Abundant Rain

     “GET THEE UP and eat and drink; for there is a sound of abundant rain.”      Thus spoke the prophet to Ahab.  No one could believe such words; they were too good to be true.  Three years had the scorching sun parched the ground, and the wells were dry and the river‑beds dusty […]

Spiritual Ancestry

But I say unto you: “Call no man your father upon the earth: for ONE is your Father, Which is in Heaven.” Now that you have taken off at the new level of Spiritual Ancestry, you will begin to experience new dimensions of power hitherto unknown. You take on some of the talents and capacities […]

Stir Up the Gift

JESUS has not commanded you to do anything that you cannot accomplish. The gift of God which you are asked to “stir up” is already there. If it were not, there is no power on this earth which could put it there. When we speak of the Christ, it is not something that is to […]


THERE IS the shepherd, tending the flocks by night—night on the desert, the heavens pulsating with stars. His meditation wraps about him as does his bur­noose. A faithful dog lies at his feet; he rests on his staff and contemplates the beauty of life. Then there is the shepherd who, leaving his sheep, goes over the rough mountain ways searching for the lost lamb—and […]

The Acts of God

 In a recent daily paper appeared an article which told of a little chapel in the Orient erected to God by native converts; and how, on the very day of dedication, the building was struck by lightning and burned to the ground. The natives were quite naturally taken aback by this happening, since The Little Chapel represented a distinct sacrifice on […]

The Answered Prayer

ACCORDING to Jesus Christ –– every prayer is answered before it is asked. “Before you ask I will answer and while you are SPEAKING I will give it unto thee.” Either you have come to a place where you believe this as a factual thing or else you are still toying with the mysterious thing […]

The Arc in the Heavens

You NEVER SEE THE SUN that is causing the rainbow, — and yet you know it is there. “No man shall see God and live.” Power cannot be seen by the eyes of man, — but he can see the results of it embodied in the infinite shapes of his consciousness. The mist which went up and […]

The Blaze of Life

“THE Lord in the midst of thee is strong and mighty” — the Lord, the Power, the Life, in the midst of the burning bush which blazes forth and yet which consumes not — which at the same time consumes that which is not — is strong and mighty. The Blaze of Life which you […]

The Dimension of Infinity

The Truth as revealed by Jesus Christ (the Word made flesh); the nature of God incarnate; the automatic power of the universe is a new dimension — the dimension of Infinity, if we could understand such a paradoxical expression. What the fourth dimension is to mathematics, the Revelation of Jesus Christ is to the mechanics […]

The Dream

I dreamed I was standing on a street corner, and saw a man struck down by a passing motor-car. I ran to him, and began wondering how I could best help him. For some time I went through the motions of ordinary emergency thinking. I called “Help,”and began lifting him up and examining the nature […]

The Echo

THE ANSWER to real prayer is like the echo of a voice. It is automatic and instant. It is the materialization of the WORD which has gone forth. There is no question about the results. “Before you ask I will answer” takes care of that. The eternal sub­stance of the thing asked for is always there just as the acoustics are always […]

The Enemy

Have you an enemy who has done you a great injustice? Did he snub you, did he lie about you, did he do a lot of things right while he was sup posed to be governed by the truth? Has he made long speeches, or raised a finger of rebuke when another spoke in language […]

The Evidence

Nothing is lost because it disappears any more than anything is lost when the reflection in a mirror is no more. Nothing was given by the reflector, regardless of the number of reflections cast by it. The minute the reflector is taken away, all the images pass from view, because they have nothing upon which to sustain themselves. No […]

The Extension of the Senses

SEEING We have been accused of having eyes, and seeing not, and ears, and hearing not; and have been told that the wisdom of man is foolishness in the eyes of God, indicating that nothing we are gaining from our present use of the senses is aught but foolishness in the eyes of this Power […]

The Father Within

When Jesus lifted up His eyes unto heaven and said, “Thank you, Father,” this all-embracing statement was so filled with revelation that it burst the shell of a thousand limitations.     As Jesus grew in awareness of His unique parentage, He unfolded the glorious truth that God desires to be the Father of every man and […]

The Fountain

The Fountain at the end of the garden walk retains its shape and form — though the water is constantly changing as you walk toward it. As long as the power is on, the shape remains intact; — the moment the power is turned off, water becomes a shapeless mass ready to take any form introduced […]

The Gesture

“RISE up and walk.” It is related that a helpless mass of flesh and bones, having lain at the temple gates for almost half a century, suddenly arose, sprang into the air, and ran off, praising God and leaping for joy as he sped on his way. “Rise up and walk” has been said many […]

The Glory of God

“AND THE Glory of THE LORD filled the House.” (Consciousness) And the Glory of the Lord filled the earth —the heavens declare it and the earth showeth forth HIS Handiwork. What is this strange, apparently evanescent quality of God called “GLORY”? It has become so involved with theological interpretations as to mean nothing more than an abstract […]

The God Within You

Healing & Health The involuntary action in your body is God within you in action. The Voluntary action is largely engendered by thought. As long as the body is controlled by involuntary action it is harmonious, and largely out of mind. The moment the voluntary action of thought takes over, evil begins to appear. If, […]

The Golden Instant

“Thou art NOW the Blessed of the Lord !” THIS is the HOUR — the COSMIC HOUR! THIS is the TIME! NOW is the day! “NOW are we the SONS OF GOD!” That which we call time becomes timeless — and is defined rightly as NOW. NOW is eternity. Space becomes spaceless — and is the HERE —infinity — without beginning or ending. Eternity is substance. In the consciousness […]

The Greatest Distance

I was gathering material for a series of articles on London Street Life and had been watching the sidewalk artists — many of them magnificent draftsmen, with amaz­ing ability to reproduce famous pictures in chalk on the pavements.  Near the Church St. Martins-in-the-field appeared daily a series of pictures so perfect and true to their […]

The Healing Voice

“This is the voice of one crying in the wilderness, ‘ Prepare ye the way [consciousness] of our LORD.’” “My words are spirit and my words are truth and they shall not return unto ME void, but SHALL accomplish whereunto they are sent.” Do you hear? Do you believe? Thus the foundations to the healing voice are laid. Either you are speaking with the God voice or you are putting up a […]

The Higher Order of Beings

If one advances confidently in the direction of his dreams, and endeavors to live the life which he has im­agined, he will meet with a success unexpected in common hours. He will put something behind, will pass an invisi­ble boundary; new, universal, and more liberal laws will begin to establish themselves around and within him, or the old laws […]

The Hour of Silence

“Remember the day on which without fear in your heart, you met your first silence? The dread hour had sounded, silence went before your soul. You saw it rising from the unspeakable abysses of life, from the inner sea of horror and beauty, and you did not fly. Bethink you of that moment and tell […]

The Immaculate Conception

“SEARCH the Scriptures, for in them ye think ye have life eternal.” Until the Scriptures yield up their symbology, they remain a rather tedious history of a decadent civilization. Once you become the principal actor, as it were, in the moving pictures of the sacred book you begin to understand the revelations of Jesus the […]

The Inheritance Incorruptible

“An inheritance incorruptible, and unde­filed, and that fadeth not away, re­served in Heaven for you.” I received a letter recently in which a statement was made: “I feel that my memory is going. I forget everything. It is hereditary.”  It is rather paradoxical to say that one “remembers that he forgets everything”  —and yet many make this remark, or one similar to it, frequently, with­out seeing that the power that can […]

The Intelligence

What is it that beats your heart? Of course, it is LIFE­–but what is life? You have nothing whatsoever to do with the pulsation of LIFE in your body. The whole wonderful working is involuntary and is so much greater than anything of which man can conceive. The more you contemplate it, the more wonderful […]

The Laughter of God

“God has made me to laugh, so that all that hear will laugh with me.” DEEP in my soul I heard the Laughter of God, ringing in silvery cadences through the timbers of my being, breaking the human bonds and limitations as a strong yet gentle wind in the forest sweeps aside the strands of […]

The Lotus (India)

If it had not been for his white turban and loin cloth, you would never have seen Sudeva, for his body was the same color as the copper sands. In fact, everything seemed to be copper color; even the sky looked like .a copper bowl. Across the barren waste, a patch of black could be seen where a clump of trees silhouetted themselves […]

The Mask of Personality

IN ANCIENT TIMES when the Greek Nobleman wished to enact a role upon the stage he donned a plaster mask, representing either tragedy or comedy, thus saving himself the trouble and displeasure of distorting his features, and instantly conveying to his audience the character he represented. If he wore a tragic mask, he passed through the play on that note and was recognized as […]

The Mechanics

THE MECHANICS WHEN YOU come to the place of recognition – and by that I mean when you have actually accepted the fact that the universe is under the direct control of a Power designated as God, or Life, and not subject to the limiting laws of evil belief, then you will see that before […]

The No Treatment Man

The answer already exists to any and every mathematical equation you can or ever will think of. No matter whether you know it or not, it equals a certain thing before you even put it down on paper. Because you do not know it does not mean anything, because you do know it does not […]

The Other Disciple

“THEN WENT IN also the other disciple.” The other disciple who went into the tomb and found it empty is, symbolically speaking, you. It is  you who have experienced all the manifestations of the Christ-consciousness– the healing of sickness and sin, the transformation of one substance into another, the supplying of all things needful, and the […]

The Past

“GOD requires the Past.” This might be said in a half-dozen more popular ways. For in­stance, if you throw a log of wood on a fire the en­tire “past” of the wood as acorn, tree and wood must go in order that the new manifestation of heat and light may take place. While this illustration is entire­ly unsuitable to an act […]

The Permanent Identity

THE ONLY impermanent thing in the universe is matter; it is so immaterial that it is ever disintegrating before your eyes. It is hardly entitled to the name solid if that term is to convey anything lasting, for it is in a constant state of change. On this changing basis of life man has tried to work out some­thing that would endure, but […]

The Permanent Identity II

“BUT who do YOU say that I AM?” A thousand answers are made to this question. If you know a thousand people, they all answer differently. They know you to be what you have manifested to them enemy to some, benefactor to others; coward, liar, cheat, wastrel, holy, unholy, just, un­just. You are all these things and yet not one of these answers suffices. The symbology buried in […]

The Pool of Bethesda

Now around the Pool of Bethesda, there were five porches filled with the lame, the halt and the blind. It does not take a great stretch of imagination to understand that the five porches represent the five senses — and that the sick were segregated into five divisions, each coming under the affliction of one […]

The Pool of Resources

According to Sophocles, man is a pool of resources. Sounds very much as if he might have been right, when THE Law giver, Jesus Christ comes along and makes it clear that anything could be done through that very dimension of consciousness, “I can do all things through Christ Jesus.” All is enough. The language […]

The Power of Silence

     “Keep silent before me.”  From the Silence springs the new life.  The seed must be first buried in the silence of the earth, away from the noisy clamoring of appearances and circumstances, before it can break its shell and live.  All self resurrection takes place in the silence of the tomb.  Nothing that […]

The Power of the Let There Be

“Let that mind be in you which was also in Christ Jesus.”  The Spirit leads Walter Lanyon into the depth of “LET,” and through Christ consciousness Lanyon journeys into the realms of Natural and Supernatural– the undisciplined mind of man.  But there is PRESENCE and with Union “LET THERE BE” manifested as he writes:  “IN […]

The Presence

MARY “lived, moved, breathed, and had her being” in the Presence, but not until it became a personal thing did the Annunciation come. Mary symbolizes every man, living in the midst of the Presence and yet not being aware of it until the annunciation is made, the annunciation that foretells the bringing forth of a Messiah. The […]

The Red Rose

DO you know what it means to dwell “in the bosom of the Father”? Do you know what it means “to live and move and have your being in God”? Since God is ever-present mind — then to live and move and have your being in God is to live and move and have your […]

The Second Coming

 We have selected this chapter due to present day awareness–the end of the AGE? There is a tremendous amount of speculation with the close of this century and Lanyon writes with spiritual insight (Christ consciousness ) especially with the introductory statement, “THEN shall appear the sign of the Son of Man in the heavens . […]

The Sense of Smell

THE SENSE of smell has, through civil­ization, lost its sensitivity as to be practically nil. In Indian and savage tribes it was extended until it could be used to trail an enemy with accuracy, but today it is only possible to smell something that is within the proximity of the nose. This sense, too, can be so de­ceived […]

The Shape of Consciousness

We put thirty spokes together and call it a wheel; But it is on the space where there is nothing that the utility of the wheel depends. We turn clay to make a vessel; But it is on the space where there is nothing that the utility of the vessel depends. We pierce doors and […]

The Silent Monologue

Be still — silence is untapped energy which performs things that cannot be done by taking thought and the repeating of noisy, meaningless words –– Be still-— As we understand the Truth given by Jesus Christ, we see more was actually said when He was silent. The spoken word of Jesus was but an “Open […]

The Space Between

The space between the cruse of oil and the manifestation of abundance stems from the belief there are vacuities in God. The space between is like the apparent space between electricity and equipment … nothing can take place until a tiny fuse is inserted and the “space between” is filled. The omnipresence of God needs […]

The Space Between II

THE “space” between making the prayer and receiving the answer is usually so filled with human speculation that it becomes an absolute opacity through which nothing can pass. The “how” of prayer cannot be answered. There is no “how” to it, for, according to the human mind, it is impossible for something to happen that cannot happen. Yet this is exactly the dimension of the WORD of which Jesus spoke. Everything you pray over is impossible […]

The Space In Between

Have you ever thought of the apparent space between the three drops of rancid oil and the steady flow which manifested itself once the connection was made? The thing that is separated from its life force dies instantly or slowly as the power it has stored up dissipates its substance. The money which you have in your hand— it will […]

The Spoken Word

“ONLY speak the Word.” Perhaps one of the most interesting of all the references to the Spoken Word is the one just cited: “Only speak the Word.” “In the beginning was the Word, and the WORD was with God and’ the Word wasGod.” The WORD which is to be spoken into exist­ence is God. Some form or manifestation of the Infinite Whole. It is not something apart from […]

The Spreading Dawn

“HE IS COMING” —He is coming whose place it is to Rule—He is overturning and over­turning until finally not one stone remains upon another, for the new thing has to be raised up. I am not talking about the world—I am talking about you and your temple-body. I am talking about the Dawn of Revelation which is coming to YOU. The […]

The Still Small Voice

We have heard much of the Still Small Voice, we have heard much of the listening attitude, the re­ceptive mode. We have all waited for that VOICE, we have all longed for it, and we have all sought for it, but in vain. It has not spoken. It has been the elusive thing which was […]

The Story of Everyman

         You are Everyman.  The Bible is the story of your life.  You have only to supply your name and change the dates and places to bring the present incidents of your life into line with the story of the Bible.  It is so with every book.           Who has not written […]

The Touch

“At the moment of the TOUCH, there is no power whatever to make the affirmation, there is no leisure. REASONING on the Vision is for afterwards. We may know we have had the vision when the SOUL has suddenly taken LIGHT. The LIGHT is from the Supreme and is the SUPREME. We may believe in the PRESENCE when […]

The Very Present Help

One moment, please! What are you worrying over at this instant?That thing which seems so important will in a short time be ancient history. It is only important because you have your eyes glued upon it and are giving it the power which belongs to God. Before long it will be nothing—no more real than the dream you had last night. In the grand scheme of […]

The Virginal Mind

MARY, the virgin, was overshadowed by the Father. The annunciation was made, the conception took place and the impossible happened. Every manifestation of God takes place through this same medium, the Virginal mind being over­shadowed by the Father. The moment this is clear to you, you will understand why your efforts have met with such small returns. You have tried […]

The Way of the Lord

“Every valley shall be exalted and every mountain shall be made low. The crooked places shall be made straight and the rough places made smooth.” The highway, or the path of material­ization, will be made easy and natural. No longer will the neophite have to climb high “mental moun­tains” in order to contact the Lord. He will suddenly realize the […]

The Well of Living Waters

“GIVE me to drink” — the Spirit tries in myriads of ways to start the flow of substance through man. He is so busy he cannot possibly understand that the moment he makes the gesture of “giving” (in the true sense) he can then ask and receive the real substance underlying the symbol he has given. “Give […]

The Will of God

“Not My will, but Thine be done ” has long been taken to mean resignation to something terrible. A complete giving over to a power, which would put one through suffering of untold description. A dumb submission to horrible experiences, which from every angle appeared evil and untoward, but which were to be accepted as the […]

The Word

“In the beginning was the WORD, and the WORD was with God, and the Word was God.” From this definite statement of the WORD does all creation proceed in orderly fashion until the day of rest is attained. The symbolical description of the creation of the world is the key to the bringing forth of everything that is to come into your life. It—the manifest world—was […]

Then Abraham Laughed

AND the Lord said of Sarah: “And I will bless her, and give thee a son of her; yea, I will bless her, and she shall be a mother of nations. Kings of people shall be of her. “Then Abraham fell upon his face and laughed, and said in his heart, ‘Shall a child be born unto him that is […]

Then Went He And Shut The Door

     “THEN WENT HE IN and shut the door.” What goes on behind the closed doors is go­ing to be of tremendous interest to the outside world. “That which is told in secret is called from the housetops.” When you think of the word “se­cret” you think of the “closed door”—-you think of the “Secret place of the Most High”—-in […]

There Is A Lad Here

The disciples were faced with five thousand problems all at once – and did not know what to do. The situation looked hopeless enough and the way out remote. It was exactly as the man who must “raise” a certain number of dollars in a given space of time – and has apparently nowhere to […]

There Is No Shortage In God

THERE IS NO SHORTAGE IN GOD. The only shortage is in the human thought. The Infinite contains all. Nothing is lost. Nothing is taken from the ALL. Nothing is added. It is One Indivisible, unchangeable. This ceases to be a dogmatic statement of God or a definition of Jehovah when you see the practical demonstration of this truth by the Elder Brother […]

This Babbler

It is reported that the audience was made up of the intelligentsia of Greece (minds of the Golden Age) who had set up a government and such perfect living conditions that it is almost impossible to imagine. And so they stood waiting for the “Babbler” to tell them something. Paul was the “Babbler” and he […]

Thou Art The Bright Messenger

     Thou art the Bright Messenger — the Shining One, the being of pure Spirit.  Thou art not the man thou hast been, lo! these many years.  Thou art new-born, fresh, clean, and pure.  Thou art not an old creature patched up by various treatments.  Thou, Bright Messenger, Golden One, hast never descended to […]

To The Poor I

“To THE POOR the Gospel is preached.” In the orthodox sense of the word it seems rather a slim chance of anything happening. Why not give the poor riches, or at least something, so they can get on? Because the consciousness of Poverty could never be helped by giving it things. It is a barrel with a hole in it which is bigger than any stream of […]

To The Poor II

“To the poor the gospel is preached.” This has been taken to be rather small consolation to one actually in need. It seems a little hard, and yet the love back of it is so great that it would lift the “poor one” from the place of a beggar into the opulence of the host, and thereby give all through with­ holding the […]

What All The World Is Seeking

THE one thing everybody is seeking is heaven (harmony, happiness). All are headed for the same goal. All are trying for the same objective. There is only one way to attain this heaven. The law states” “Except ye become as a little child, ye shall in no wise enter the Kingdom of Heaven.” The law must be fulfilled, for we find that “he who […]

Where There Be Prophecies

“WHERE THERE BE PROPHECIES, they shall fail” But LOVE never faileth. Strange, then, how after we have left our own personal and private “Egypt” and have seen signs and wonders and proofs of God’s Love, that we turn aside to prophecies. But you say they are interesting. Yes, very,-but mighty slippery ground to stand upon, […]

Who Are You?

“Who are you” And to what end were you born? You who read this book — to you I come. I ask you the question you read because, if you are willing, you shall see the answer written in fire over the portals of your universe. Slave! Arise from the pigsty of your prodigality, and […]

Why Do You Say Possibly?

WHY DO YOU SAY POSSIBLY Chapter Ten AND Jesus said to the father of the “possessed” child, “How long has he been like this?” And the father answered, “From a little child… but if you possibly can, have compassion on us, help us.” And Jesus answered and said: “Why do you say POSSIBLY?” Does that question mean anything to you? Do you hear […]


THAT the wisdom of God is foolishness in the eyes of man is quite as true as the fact that the “wisdom” of man is foolish in the eyes of God. Yet thousands of people are trying to use the “wisdom of God” through the channels of the “wisdom of man.” This is impossible at […]

Wist Ye Not

EVERY question Jesus asked seemed to be full of surprise at the continued ignorance of man —even of His disciples. He had been with them three years, daily instructing them and guiding them into the new dimension—the Fatherhood degree of life. Yet they perpetually seemed to ask questions which belonged to the sonship degree. The business of “Self-expression” has been one […]

You Are Not Afraid

“For the thing which I greatly feared has come upon me”—where did it come from? What is fear? Is it a person? Is it a power? Is it some strange product of superstition that suddenly jumps at you from the unknown? It states the thing you feared has come upon you; it is not the […]

Your Problem

    I KNOW not what your individual prob­lem may be, but just the same I bring you the glorious message that YOU CAN change your present condition; YOU CAN change sickness to health; YOU CAN change poverty into wealth; YOU CAN be that which you desire to be. Further I say to you that the castle of your dreams CAN BE […]
