DISCOURSE/LETTER 1: LAWS GOVERNING CREATION
- Laws – Principles of Creation
These LAWS are so much part of life that they are never questioned. They are undeviating and consistent – but there would be no such laws if there were no Creative Intelligent Power manifesting Itself through the universe. These ‘principles’ of creation, the characteristics of the Creative Power Itself, are as follows:
[I am translating them into your present tense because these ‘principles’ are eternal.]
- The ‘Nature’ of the ‘Creative Power’ is GROWTH.
Everything living always grows.
GROWTH is a universal characteristic, an undeviating principle of existence.
- The ‘Nature’ of the ‘Creative Power’ is NUTRITION and NOURISHMENT.Nutrition and Nourishment are a normal and marvelously organized process within bodies which is evident to all who take the trouble to consider them. Nutrition is provided for all living things according to individual preferences and the food is digested to promote health and well-being. When little creatures are born, milk is already supplied within the mother, ready and waiting for the newborn. This too is a mystifying principle of existence none can deny.
No science can explain why such a fortuitous function within the system ensuring survival of the species, should have originally come into being. The actual function itself may be understood but not the ‘why’ and the mainspring of the function.
- The ‘Nature’ of the ‘Creative Power’ is HEALING.
Healing is a natural characteristic of existence and can be said to be a natural ‘Perfecting Process’, which takes place to ensure individual comfort but none can explain what prompts the activity of healing.
- The ‘Nature’ of the ‘Creative Power’ is PROTECTION.
Protection is an integral characteristic of Creative Power and all of Its seeming ‘miraculous’ activity in the world is geared towards protection. [Today, your medical text books describe the various protective systems in your body but when I was in the desert I ‘saw’ the characteristic of Protection inherent in the Intelligent Creative Power in the following way.]
As plants, birds and animals were presented to me for inspired observation, I could see how every ‘need of protection’ in bodies has been lovingly supplied, with the greatest attention to detail.
- This characteristic of ‘Protection’ is combined with the other dynamic characteristic of FULFILMENT OF NEED.
This was made clearly apparent in the provision of hair, fur and feathers to protect the skin of living creatures and to provide warmth in the cold and shelter in the heat. I saw that the tender endings of important and sensitive fingers and toes were all provided with appropriate protection of hoof and nail. Eyebrows protected eyes from sweat, eyelids and lashes protected eyes from dust and damage. I realized that those animals which attracted flies were equipped with the kind of tails which would most speedily get rid of them.
What a happy, joyous kind of love and caring were expressed in these small physical attributes which seemed so small and inconsequential and yet had such a profound bearing on the comfort of all living things. These physical luxuries, added to the basic physical design, were clearly the product of an Intelligence which intended creation to be comfortable and happy – free of the stress which would have been experienced by man and beast if these ‘luxury items’ had not been given them!
Even the natural functions were so intelligently and comfortably designed as to call forth thanksgiving. Everything tucked so neatly out of sight. How blest, how fortunate was mankind to be born into a life so wonderfully provided for! Again my praises soared and I was lifted on an inner golden light of rapturous wonder – for I now ‘saw’ that, in addition to freedom from stress, living creatures were also meant to express the exuberant loving NATURE of the Creative Power. For this reason, they were equipped with limbs: arms, hands, legs and feet, fingers and toes, to enable them to move about, run, leap and dance, to be able to express their inmost thoughts and feelings. I even felt that if mankind longed to fly and grow wings and believed with all their hearts they could do so; eventually they would begin growing something additional to enable them to fly.
It was at this point of understanding of the NATURE of the ‘Creative Power’ that I came into the full consciousness of the LOVE directing the WORKS of the Universal Intelligent Creative Power.
As I pondered this LOVE, I realized that the ‘mother’ in creation, nourishes, protects, fulfills the needs and tries to promote healing of offspring; this is the activity of LOVE.
- The innate characteristic of the LOVING INTELLIGENT CREATIVE POWER which has given creation its individual form and ‘being’ is WORK.
It works for us, in us, and through us.
Its ‘work’ is always, always, always, prompted by LOVE.
This cosmic revelation filled me with joy and astonishment. What a wonderful world we lived in! It was the culminating point in my enlightenment and my overall view of the TRUTH concerning the SOURCE of ALL BEING.
I had already ‘seen’ the reality of the physical bodies composed of various communities of identical ‘infinitely tiny entities’ working in a spirit of co-operation and harmony to produce the various components of the body – flesh, bone, blood, to eyes and hair.
The only difference between these communities lay in the type of work demanded by their common goals. Surely the DIVINE IMPULSE behind all this intelligent, purposeful activity in the body, was both the inspiration and foundation of man’s own conduct when people worked in unison to produce a planned objective? They drew intelligence and purpose from the Creative Power yet how very different was man’s behavior when engaged in earthly construction or any other communal project for it was inevitably characterized by arguments and dissension.
I was brought to a realisation of the INFINITE POWER of the ‘Intelligent Creativity’ ever active within creation, maintaining order, co-operation, harmony, daily productivity, unequalled by man anywhere, at any time.
- SURVIVALwas a natural characteristic of the ‘Creative Power’. In every case, the most wonderful provision had been made for all living things to grow, be healed of illnesses and injury, nourished in order to keep the body healthy, and to produce its own kind in order to ensure survival on this earth. This was the only reality mankind could be absolutely sure of and Itsactivity was consistent, year in and year out. The sun, moon, stars, all remained in their places for millennia and it was recognized that they all possessed their own paths of movement – this phenomena was all part of the grand scheme for survival in creation.
If this was so, how could there not be survival of the eternal flame of: Loving Intelligent Creative Power hidden within the created entities of every kind in the universe? Therefore, this world was but a shadow and image of the hidden worlds of Loving Intelligent Creative Power beyond this dimension. The Reality of the entirety of creation lay beyond this visible world.
- The inherent characteristic of Loving Intelligent Creative Power was RHYTHM.
I saw that there was a RHYTHM in operation in the world.
Everything was subject to seasons which gave a blossoming and burgeoning of life, a growing season coming up to the ripening and harvest, and the production of seeds which ensured the survival of plant life. Then there was the gradual dying away and rest period of winter. But nothing created and living was allowed to become extinct. The sun and moon expressed these characteristics within the universe. This rhythm could even be seen in the females of living things.
Therefore, everything in creation had its due time for appearance and harvest. It followed that man himself was subject to tides of growth and success and tides of dormancy.
- The inherent characteristic of the Loving Intelligent Creative Power was LAW AND ORDER.
The undeviating order and reliability apparent in creation, even governing the tiny entities (‘cells’) within the body, were astonishing and far transcended any human endeavor. Therefore, the entire universe was operating under a system of perfect LAW and ORDER.
I realized on ever higher and higher levels of spiritual exaltation that the ‘creative power’ exhibited intelligent purposefulness and loving concern for all living things. I realized that life was not something nebulous or amorphous but an intelligent loving creative power which I could actually feel within myself as a tremendously heightened state of being, perception, radiance, ecstasy, joy, love. I knew myself to be one with it – filled with it – and I was one with everything around me and one with the sky and stars.
And – most wonderful and glorious of all – the very ‘Nature’ and ‘Function’ of this ‘Father – Creative Power’ was to work in order to create joy, beauty, and comfort to ensure mankind’s well-being, to work within mankind to provide interior joy, health and comfort, and to work through mankind, inspiring him with new realisation and understanding.
Wonderful vistas of glorious creativity came to mind. Once we became truly ‘at one’, purified channels and instruments of the ‘Intelligent Creative Power’, we could gradually ascend in consciousness until we truly expressed through our minds and hearts the very ‘NATURE’ of the ‘Universal Creative Power’. Then ‘life on earth’ would indeed become a ‘state of heaven’ at all times and we would enter into a state of eternal life!
This must surely be the true goal behind creation, I thought. And it came to me with a surge of elation and loving joy, that this was the purpose for which man had been evolved and developed!
But – even at this present time, although mankind was so very imperfect in his behavior, absolutely nothing was impossible to him in the future, since, despite his wrongdoing, he was one with the ‘Creative Power’ and the ‘Creative Power’ was within him, giving him life, limb, and everything else he needed.
All of this realisation lifted me to the heights of rapture, elation and sublime ecstasy, so that I was scarcely able to bear it. I felt my body must dissolve with the expansion of Power within me. I was irradiated with LIGHT and could see ITall around me illuminating the desert scene.
My heart sang in praises. How wonderful and beautiful was the Loving Creative Power which worked in, through and for us, unceasingly!
What a MIRACLE was creation!
I cried out loud:
‘YOU are the SOURCE of all BEING, both creator and also manifested within and through the created: there is nothing in the entire universe which is apart or separate from the limitless, eternal infinity of DIVINE LIFE, Creative Power Consciousness – that you are – how then is it possible that mankind is so sinful – and why do people suffer disease, misery and poverty? Tell me, O loving, loving ‘Father’ Creative Power, because I have been heavily burdened with the pain of their miserable lives.’
Then I was shown the reality of the ‘earthly condition’ of all living things.
I felt immense excitement because, at last, I would be able to understand how it was that such a loving Divine ‘Creative Power’ could allow Its creation to endure such misery.
I was shown that every living thing in creation should be radiantly healthy, cared for, nourished, protected, healed, maintained in peace and plenty, prospered within an orderly society of ‘beings’ extending only love to each other.
[ However, at the moment of creation, two BASIC IMPULSES came into being, ensuring individuality, and it was these which controlled mankind’s consciousness. These IMPULSES were explained to me in detail but this knowledge is reserved for a future Letter when you will be better able to understand it.]
I was shown the following vivid vision.
First of all, I saw a newborn babe as ‘light’, a life-form of ‘Creative Power’.
As the baby grew into childhood, then manhood, I saw the pure LIGHT of the ‘Creative Power’ gradually dimmed and then obscured altogether in him, by a dense wrapping of chains and thongs.
I questioned the meaning of the vision and there came to my mind a clear understanding which may be expressed in the following words:
‘From birth to death – people believe and insist that their five senses of sight, hearing, touch, smell and taste, correctly predicate the ‘reality’ of themselves and the universe around them. Therefore, because they draw their mind power direct from Divine ‘Creative Power’, it is done to them according to their beliefs.’
Each thong represents a person’s habitual thoughts, responses to people and events, prejudices, hates, animosities, anxieties, sorrows, all of which bind him down and shut out the Light from his inner vision drawn from the ‘Creative Power’. Thus he enters into darkness but does not know it. He believes he is growing up and becoming mature in the ways of the world which will enable him to forge ahead and make ‘good’ – become successful – the aim of most people on earth.
In fact, the more mature he becomes and versed in worldly ways, the more densely do his chains and thongs imprison him within the grip of the twin IMPULSES of ‘Bonding-Rejection’.
Furthermore, each chain is forged out of selfish and deceitful desires, greed, aggression, violence and rape. These chains hang heavy around him and burden the psyche, which is the ‘creative consciousness power’ deep within him. Chain and thong will bind him tighter with every passing year until he realizes what he is doing to himself and sincerely repents each thong and chain and makes due restitution to others whom he has harmed.
With this vision I learnt a most valuable aspect of existence. Man himself is born with all the potential to make a beautiful life for himself but he, himself, by indulging his selfish desires and hatreds, creates a prison of misery for himself from which there was no escape until such times as he realizes the TRUTH OF EXISTENCE.
All the problems of harsh existence lay within the thought processes of man himself!
Only people’s ‘consciousness forms’, their thoughts, words, feelings, actions created a dense barrier between their consciousness and the Universal Creative Consciousness interpenetrating the universe in every leaf, tree, insect, bird, animal and human being.
- Laws of Existence
I was also shown the LAWS OF EXISTENCE controlling the human ability to create new circumstances and environment, relationships, achievement or failure, prosperity or poverty.
Whatever man profoundly BELIEVES himself to be, good or bad, that will he become.
Whatever man FEARS others will do to him, so will they do.
Whatever man HOPES that others will do to him, he must first do to them, since he is then creating a ‘consciousness pattern’ which will return to bless him to the extent he has blest others.
Whatever disease man DREADS so will he become prey to it for he will have created a ‘consciousness pattern’ of the very thing he least wants to experience.
Whatever is sent forth from man’s mind and heart – returns to him in due course in some form or another, but remember that like always breeds like. Strongly held emotional thoughts are ‘consciousness seeds’ planted within a man’s own orbit of consciousness. These will grow, bearing a like harvest for his reaping.
These are the fruits of free will.
There is no way that man may escape what he thinks, says or does – for he is born of the Divine Creative Consciousness power and is likewise creative in his imagining.
Those who long for good for themselves must first give it to others. Let their very existence be a blessing to others.
When such people are in harmony with all others –
they are then perfectly attuned to the Universal Creative Consciousness power –
and they are brought into the flow of the Father ‘nature’ which is growth, protection, nourishment (physical, mental, spiritual) healing, fulfilment of need, within a system of law and order.
How can I describe for you, my inner glow, my transcendent brightness and brilliance of joy and powerful feelings of love which possessed and inflated my entire being with their intensity until I cried out with the pressure within my mind and heart. It was so powerful it seemed it would entirely dissolve my bodily form. As I received all this supreme, sublime understanding of the Reality, our Source of Being, and the true nature of creation itself – and of mankind, I was uplifted in spirit and my body became light as air.
At that time, when I was thus elevated within the Divine Creative Power Itself, I was indeed almost a ‘Divine Person’ myself, experiencing a high degree of the ‘Nature’ of the ‘Father-Creative Power’ within me and feeling Its own drive and caring concern for all humanity.
Therefore, I could later say with truth: ‘Only I know and have seen the ‘Father’.’
In that moment how I yearned to teach, heal, comfort, uplift, feed, take away the people’s pain and misery.
I longed to release them from their fear of a mythical ‘avenging god’!
When I returned to tell them the truth, how I would emphasize the ‘Reality’ of the ‘Father-Creative Power’ – PERFECT LOVE – supplying their every need. All they had to do was ‘Ask, seek, knock’ and all their needs – of whatever kind – would be bestowed upon them.
How joyously I would tell them the ‘good news’ that ‘redemption from suffering’ lay within their grasp if they only took the necessary steps to cleanse their minds and hearts of the TWIN IMPULSES of manifested ‘being’.
This should be simple enough, I thought, one only needed understanding and self-control.
[I have descended towards your vibrations to refer back to my actual state of mind during the time I was in the desert. It will help your own understanding immeasurably if you try to enter my ‘state of consciousness’ at that time. So many things, such as my works of healing and ‘walking on water’ will become clear to you. They will be seen to be a natural consequence of my new understanding of the ‘Father-Creative Power’.
If you read the gospels of Matthew and Mark, their records will have new meaning for you.]
To return to my final hours of enlightenment, – there I was in the desert, possessing the clear understanding that man himself – (through no fault of his own) creates the barrier to attunement to the ‘Father-Creative Power’, and now I was longing to hurry back and teach, heal, comfort, dry the tears of those I so greatly pitied.
Yet I was reluctant to leave this ‘hallowed’ place where I had been so illumined and transformed in spirit. On the other hand what a wonderful future lay ahead of me!
I would walk through all the cities, towns, villages and tell everyone I met – the GOOD NEWS! ‘The Kingdom of Heaven’, that place where all sickness disappeared and every need was supplied was within them! Because I knew that the ‘Father’ and I were ‘one’, now that my mind had been cleansed of the old thoughts and ideas, I would direct healing at their illness and disease. I would teach them how to relieve their poverty.
When the FATHER CONSCIOUSNESS within me began to dim, and I gradually returned to human consciousness I became aware of gnawing hunger and also a return of my human conditioning and thought.
My reactions to my six weeks’ experiences began to change. My usual human awareness of ‘me’ and my desires, took over my thoughts.
‘Why, the most amazing and completely unexpected thing has happened to me!’ I exulted. ‘I have been given knowledge beyond any yet given to any other man.’
I was jubilant with the realisation that, at last, my doubt and rebelliousness against the avenging ‘god’ of the Traditional Orthodox Jews was vindicated. I had been right after all!
Who had ever suspected the human mind could be so highly creative, that a strongly-held thought or desire would actually manifest itself in the visible realm? I realized that Moses must have known something of this, because he had accomplished some strange things when the Israelites were in dire need.
He became a leader and changed the course of the Israelites previously enslaved in Egypt.
I could return now and free my people from the rigid control of their own Teachers.
My hunger pains now became intense. It occurred to me that I could turn stones into bread to satisfy my longing for food because I remembered that the ‘Father-Creative Power’ worked through my mind and therefore, everything in the universe would be subject to my command.
I was about to speak the ‘word’ which would change stones into bread but something in me halted me abruptly.
It came to me, strongly, that the ‘Father-Creative Consciousness’ was perfect protection, nourishment, fulfilment of need, and so the hunger would be taken care of, if I asked the ‘Father’ for relief.
I realized that if the little ‘i’, the human me, in my need, used the ‘Creative Power’ for selfish reasons, I would be erecting a barrier between the ‘Father-Creative Consciousness’ and myself, and everything I had just learnt might well be taken away from me.
This frightened me, and swiftly I asked the ‘Father-Creative Power’ for new strength to carry me back to habitations and Nazareth again. I also asked for relief of hunger in the form that would be right for me. Immediately, the hunger pangs subsided and I felt a surge of energy flow through my entire body. Thus I proved that all I had seen, heard and understood was ‘Reality’ and not some vain imagining born of my time in the desert, fasting and alone.
My new energy enabled me to make haste over the rough tracks on my way out of the desert.
On the way, I met a well-dressed man of sweet and pleasing countenance. He greeted me warmly, expressing concern on seeing my rough, unkempt appearance and loss of condition.
Gladly, he sat me down on a rock and shared his excellent meat and bread with me. I wondered why he was in such a desolate place and where he had come from. In response to my questioning, he only smiled and seemed not the least surprised when I said I had been in the desert for so many days I had lost count of time. I explained how I was enlightened as to the true nature of the Creator of the world and shown the natural Laws of Existence. He only smiled and nodded.
‘I am going back to my people to teach them everything I have learnt.’ I said joyously. ‘Why I will be able to heal them and bring them release from every sickness and trouble.’
The stranger replied sadly: ‘It will take many millennia.’
I was about to rebuke his lack of faith when I realized he was gone.
I knew then that a Divine messenger had come to succor with good bread and meat – and compassionately give me warning that I might not find my mission so simple, despite my enthusiasm. I was deflated by his word of warning. My enthusiasm waned. The way to the first village on my road seemed endless. How a change in human thought produces a change of mood!
It came to me that I could further prove the truth of all I had been shown by jumping over the edge of a precipice which would greatly shorten my journey. As I was about to do this, it came to me forcibly that I was trying to ‘prove’ my time of enlightenment was real. If I required such proof, then I was in a state of doubt and I would probably kill myself, besides I had been shown that in every eventuality I could lift my thoughts up to the ‘FATHER-CREATIVE CONSCIOUSNESS’ and ask for a solution to every problem. How quickly I forgot the Truth!
So I prayed, passionately asking forgiveness for being weak enough to indulge my own fantasies and seeking my own way of doing things.
Again, the answer came in renewed strength and a greater sureness of foot as I scrambled over the rough ground. I found, too, that I was covering long distances so quickly that it seemed that I had stepped outside normal time reckoning, and I was in a lighter dimension where human experience was lifted above its heavy thralldom of exhausting expenditure of energy. Walking was so easy it was now invigorating. I exulted in the fact that I had found the key to ‘more abundant life’!
A while later, feeling so much at ease, my mind began to wander and I thought about my meeting with the stranger and the kindness he had shown me. But I also remembered his warning, and again my old nature reasserted itself and I felt deeply rebellious that he should presume to tell me how my work would go. I decided he knew nothing about my future and set his warning aside.
‘Why,’ I thought, ‘with my knowledge I could accomplish things no man has ever done before. Instead of struggling in a difficult life, I could begin to accumulate wealth easily, attract followers wherever I went, and share my knowledge with them to make their lives easier also. I could take away all pain and suffering.’
As I contemplated the many places I could visit so easily, I felt myself skimming the surface of the ground and rising until I reached the highest peak of a steep mountain overlooking the countryside below.
There it was, all laid out before me. I felt my previous enthusiasm return. Why, it would be so simple to round up the people and share all my knowledge with them. I would become powerful, even famous as the man who rescued mankind from all their sickness and troubles. I would gain their admiration and respect and would no longer be remembered as an idle worthless fellow.
With a tremendous shock, all I had been taught so recently, but a few hours ago, returned to mind with great force and clarity.
Had I not been taught that the only way I could ever prosper was to abandon my self-will and turn to the ‘FATHER’ for assistance in everything I undertook?
Then I remembered that creation had its own special purposes to fulfill. The individualizing process had created the ‘pull and push’, the ‘give and take’ in human behavior. Although these human characteristics caused people great anguish in their lives, was it not the anguish which forced them to seek better ways to live in order to find true happiness? I realized that the ills of mankind had their place in the human scheme of existence.
Was it right for me to bring privileged information to people in order to nullify the effects of the ‘individualizing process’?
I realized I had been thinking from the ‘central point’ of my individuality, the ‘ego’, and it was the ego-drive which built barriers between mankind and ‘Father-Creative Consciousness’. Therefore, my ‘central point of human desiring’ would have to be conquered if I was to live in perfect harmony with my ‘Father’ as was my sincere intention. And so I continued on my way, pondering what might lie ahead and how I might best overcome the impulses governing my humanhood in order to remain in the Flow of ‘Father Consciousness’ from which I would draw inspiration, guidance, answers to problems, my daily nourishment, daily health, daily protection. In fact, I realized that whilst I remained within this daily Flow of ‘Father Consciousness’, no harm could ever come near me and my every need would be met.
And more importantly: the ‘Father Consciousness’ working through me would do whatever was required for people in dire need of healing and comfort.
At all times, I must overcome my rebelliousness against the harsh realities of existence and listen to the ‘inner voice’ and conform to the ‘Higher Will’ of the ‘Father’. This ‘Higher Will’ was ‘Perfect Love’ directed entirely at promoting my highest good. It would be extremely foolish, I realized, to continue along the path of ‘self-will’ which had dictated my behavior to that time.
It was then that I was inspired to speak in parables to the people. Those who were ready to receive the knowledge would understand and make good use of it.
But, as it turned out, even my disciples could not rid themselves sufficiently of Jewish doctrine to enable them to understand either the principle of consciousness or the activity of the Divine ‘Creative Power’ within creation. [Until this time, it has remained a mystery to all except the spiritually enlightened.]
Even the spiritual words of enlightenment cannot be immediately, fully comprehended by the human mind; therefore these Letters must be read slowly and accompanied by much meditation and prayer to be properly understood.
Remember, unless you can become as a ‘child’ – (getting rid of a useless clutter of beliefs, prejudices, resentments, ambitions, and ego-drive) with a mind filled with wonder and utmost faith, you will not be able to absorb these pages as you should.
To become a ‘child’, you must make an effort to shed all past mental conditioning.
If you are mentally/emotionally/physically suffering, it is only because whatever have been your most sincere beliefs, they have not been helpful to you; they have not promoted your well-being.
It is time to examine your MINDSET. Are you happy with it?
You can make choices, and as you make them, you can call upon the ‘Father’ to help you make the changes, and the help will surely be given you, – providing you do not doubt.
I therefore urge you to continue to read and absorb the following pages. I want to impress on you the strength of your mindset – which is the sum total of all your conscious and subconscious programming.
It is essential you should understand that none of this human mindset has its origins in the spiritual dimension.
It is entirely earthly and probably filled with mythical ideas, prejudices, misconceptions, resentments, buried memories of past hurts, and habitual methods of dealing with the ups-and-downs of life. Your human mindset (including any religious ideas or beliefs) determines your world, your relationships, experiences, successes, failures, happiness and misery. It is even responsible for your sickness, disease and accidents. Nothing happens by chance. Everything is woven out of the inner threads of your personal consciousness – thoughts, expectations, beliefs in life, fate, ‘God’. You live in a world of your own making. This is why children raised in the same environment turn out differently. Each one has its own individual mindset constructed according to inherent character traits.
If, from birth, you had no developing mindset, you would be as unconscious as a statue, devoid of feeling, responses and thought. Vacantly, you would stare at the world, and whilst there might be a great deal of activity around you, nothing would impinge on your consciousness, since you would be devoid of reaction. Nothing would make you happy or miserable, even if a bomb exploded in your vicinity.
Without a mindset, you have no life, no development, no evil, no good. Your TYPE of mindset determines the quality of your life. This is the very first Truth of Existence I want you to realize and understand fully. Furthermore, for as long as you live you carry your mindset with you wherever you go.
There is no escaping it, and day after day, it will continue to create for you the type of existence you have experienced in your past. Many people go through their entire lives believing they are unfortunate. They think that other people have been mean, unkind, ugly to them, and have made their lives thoroughly unhappy.
They believe that ‘other people’ quarrel with them and constantly make difficulties whilst they are absolutely innocent of any provocation.
On the contrary, ‘other people’ are not to blame. It is the personal mindset which is attracting to them their negative conditions.
Many people shy away from the suggestion that they alone are responsible for their troubles. It is more difficult for some people to face up to their inadequacies than it is for those who have the inner strength and self-confidence to look at themselves fairly and squarely.
Sincere Prayer draws the ‘Father-Creative Consciousness’ into the mind, quietly, secretly, it cleanses the human consciousness of all that the seeker no longer feels comfortable with. It is, of necessity, a very gradual process of inner cleansing and development.
- Emotional Patterns
Your emotional patterns can be as damaging to your overall welfare as your mindset.
Your mindset together with your emotional patterns are your creative tools.
These together create the necessary outlines for future possessions, events, and circumstances.
These CREATIVE TOOLS work in your life whether you intend them to or not.
It is far more difficult to discover your deep-seated emotional attitudes, either conscious or subconscious than to recognize your mental conditioning.
People can be possessed by negative emotional patterns and be quite unaware of them since they are covered by the moment-to-moment emotions arising from the daily routine.
To discover what your emotional patterns really are, ask yourself questions along the following lines, and be totally honest with yourself. To try to hide from the truth of your emotional patterns is merely to deceive yourself and hold yourself back from achieving the joyous state of existence you were intended to enjoy.
How do you really feel about LIFE? I want you to write yourself a warmly compassionate letter, telling yourself exactly how you feel as you answer the following questions:
Are you happy to be alive or would you prefer to be able to cease to live? If your truthful answer is the latter, then you have a negative attitude towards existence and are at war within yourself at a deep level. You know, consciously, that you have to continue your daily life but at your deepest level you would like to quit. The interior war prevents you from attracting all that you could be experiencing with a positive emotional pattern.
How do you really feel about your relatives? Is there any buried hostility which you do not want to admit or that you did not realize existed?
How do you feel about your employment, colleagues, entertainment, other races, etc.
Write down all your discoveries about yourself and lock it away in a safe place.
This work you have done for yourself is for yourself – only for your benefit. You have not done it to make you a better person, or to please ‘God’ or to win approval from other people. You have done this work to remove existing inner blocks to your spiritual development and ultimate happiness.
If you decide to change your life by reading these Letters daily, I urge you to put your dated letter in a safe place. Reread it in a year’s time and rejoice in the great changes which you will see have taken place in your mindset. You will also see that there have been changes in your circumstances.
Remember that prayer and meditation focused entirely on your Creator will bring you new strength and insight which, in turn, will bring changes to your feelings and environment.
When praying – never focus on your problems – always – ask for the right remedy. Let your Creator bring you the right solutions which your human mind is incapable of thinking up.
For instance – never tell your Creative ‘Father’ how ill you are. Concentrate on the Power you are receiving immediately into your condition (although your consciousness may be too densely human to feel it) and give thanks for your swift recovery and believe in it.
When you ‘give thanks’ you are accepting, acknowledging, believing, impressing in your own consciousness the realisation that your prayer now lies within the ‘Father Love Consciousness’ and is being ‘processed’ for visible manifestation in due course at the right time. When in Palestine, I constantly gave thanks for the work before it was accomplished.
Never pray and then go out of your room and tell people how ill you feel, or how terrible the personal or national situation is. If you have asked the Father Creator to solve your problems, finances or poor health, what an insult to the Father Creator to continue to bring up past negative conditions? You immediately undo the work the Father Creator is engaged in.
If, in your mind, after prayer, the old conditions have not become past negative conditions, then return to prayer until you can dismiss them from your mind and really believe that all is being Divinely taken care of – right that minute.
Return again and again to giving thanks for the benefits you have asked for. They will surely materialize.
There are many thousands of people in your world today consistently relying on the Universal Father Creator to fulfill their every need and witnessing to the manifold blessings in their lives.
Abandon fears, they have availed you nothing. Now turn to the universal ‘Father’ Creator – as the SOURCE OF YOUR BEING, conception, growth, development, nutrition, regeneration, healing, fulfilment of your every need, PROTECTION, all within a system of SPIRITUAL LAW & ORDER.
Realize that all this wonderful work is constructive, purposeful, orderly.
You truly have a MASTER MIND behind you, your family and living conditions. TRUST IT.
Do not allow your thinking to spoil the Divine Creative Operation!
Remember, above all – that I, the CHRIST, only performed my so-called miracles because I realized that the ‘Kingdom of God’ was within me and that I could always rely on my Creator ‘Father’ to do the work in and through me.
Remember that you only have an individual consciousness because you have drawn it from the Creative ‘Father’ Consciousness’.
When your personal consciousness is fully cleansed of negativity, you will discover that you, too, have become a purified channel of Creative ‘Father’ Consciousness. You will also be a joyous source of growth, nutrition, healing, nurturing, protection, fulfilment of need, within a system of good organizational law and order to all who come within your orbit. This powerful influence will be extended through your mind to your families, friends, neighbors, farm lands and your animals and crops.
Even as electricity passed through your hands will light a Bunsen burner in a laboratory, so will your LIFE FORCE radiations benefit all who come within your radius of influence.
This was the intention behind creation. You were intended to express Universal Creative Consciousness through your mind and heart. I, the CHRIST, have come at this time to show you how to do this.
First of all, consider my ‘state of consciousness’ when I performed my so-called miracles.
I did not pray a set prayer. I simply asked the Creative Father radiating through my own consciousness, for whatever was needed.
I strongly realized and visualized the ‘Father Creative Consciousness’ was a dynamic operating Force which manifested itself through the visible world as:
Creativity, intelligent design, growth, nutrition and nourishment, protection, healing, regeneration, fulfilment of every need – all within a system of law and order.
I realized that the ‘Creative Father Consciousness’ would radiate all Its Nature through my consciousness to enter the consciousness of those who had asked for healing and sincerely believed they would receive it. I also knew that if they did not have ‘faith and expectancy of healing’, this type of negative consciousness would not be influenced by the inflow of the NATURE of ‘Father Consciousness’ and no healing would take place.
I also realized that the healing work done by the Creative Father Consciousness was really Love made visible on earth.
I also realized that all the work done by the Creative Father Consciousness within the visible world was Love made manifest – and gave thanks.
I realized that out of Universal Consciousness had come all the substance of the universe – and gave thanks.
I realized that ‘Father Creative Consciousness’ was the ‘worker’ and that It was eternal and infinite and nothing – nothing except the human mind could stop it from doing its work.
Therefore, I rid my mind of any human feelings and thoughts, and I knew that I was a perfect channel of ‘Father Love’ and knew that the perfect will of ‘Father Love’ would be accomplished in the person who needed healing.
But note this: I also knew that whatever in that person’s consciousness had brought about his crippled, or maimed, or diseased condition had been erased in his body for the time being. The question was: would his normal ‘consciousness’ bring about a return of the condition divinely erased from his body?
Therefore I said to the person who had received healing: ‘go your way and sin no more’.
I want you to know and believe with all your hearts that my state of consciousness when on earth, described to you in the above paragraphs, is the ‘state of consciousness’ to which you should also aspire with all your mind and heart.
My experiences of enlightenment in the desert enabled me to achieve the CHRIST CONSCIOUSNESS to a large extent whilst on earth. But you can follow in my steps if you have the will to do so, and I will surely be at hand to help you on your journey. You may feel my presence if you are sufficiently sensitive to do so. But if for some time, you feel nothing, do not be cast down, because as you do the work of changing your consciousness, you can be absolutely certain you will be tuning into my CHRIST CONSCIOUSNESS and I will be aware of all that is happening to you.
KNOW that your purpose on earth is to ascend in spiritual consciousness until you transcend all the humanhood which presently holds you back, until, eventually, you, too, can control the elements and become a master.
Realize too that when world consciousness is fully attuned to ‘Father Creative Consciousness’, all things inimical to the perfect well-being of man will disappear. There will be no more malaria bearing mosquitoes, locusts to strip your crops, severe climatic conditions, infections, viruses, and everything else which presently cause problems for living things. You will live within a cloak of universal protection. When your own consciousness is perfectly attuned to and in harmony with Father Love – then you too will be divinely protected and will become channels of:
Creative design, growth, nutrition and nourishment, protection, healing, regeneration, fulfilment of need, law and order.
FATHER LOVE will be operational within your mind, heart, body and your affairs.
It will be operational in all those to whom you direct its power.
