Hence, will is given to man as he comes into this
manifested form that we see in material forces, for the choice.
For hope and faith are living--living--things! Thus hope springs
anew with the growth and the knowledge and the understanding of the light on the way, and
that life indeed is an eternal expression of the love of the Father; and that as it gives
the expression through the individuality of each and every soul as it comes in material
manifestation by the weaknesses, we find the strength in the Lord--and in the glories ever
in His beauteous purpose with each soul; that purpose that ye might be the companions, one
What one thinks continually, they become; what one cherishes in
their heart and mind they make a part of the pulsation of their heart, through their own
blood cells, and build in their own physical, that which its spirit and soul must feed
upon, and that with which it will be possessed, when it passes into the realm for which
the other experiences of what it has gained here in the physical plane, must be used.
Try to see self in the other's place. And this will bring the
basic spiritual forces that must be the prompting influence in the experience of each
soul, if it would grow in grace, in knowledge, in understanding; not only of its
relationship to God, its relationship to its fellow man, but its relationship in the home
and in the social life.
There is the necessity that the physical body be in as perfect
accord with the Creative and Universal Forces as is possible, but "Thy will be done
in me as Thou seest I have need of in the present. Let me bear in my body those
conditions, circumstances, physical and mental, that will bring me wholly closer to an
understanding of the purposes for which I came into being; without censure to anyone,
without censure to myself, but use me as Thou seest fit!"
"For all that ye may ever keep is just what you give away,
and that you give away is advice, counsel, manner of life you live yourself." The
manner in which you treat your fellow man, your patience, your brotherly love, your
kindness, your gentleness. That you give away, that is all that ye may possess in those
other realms of consciousness.
For mind is the builder and that which we think upon may become
crimes or miracles. For thoughts are things and as their currents run through the environs
of an entity's experience these become barriers or steppingstones, dependent upon the
manner in which these are laid as it were. For as the mental dwells upon these thoughts,
so does it give strength, power to things that do not appear. And thus does indeed there
become that as is so oft given, that faith is the evidence of things not seen.
Then as ye have held, as ye have applied that ye have gained, so does the ability come to be of that help, that aid to those who are stumbling--some blindly, some gropingly, some discouraged, some overanxious, some overzealous of their own peculiar twist or turn; yet all seeking--seeking the light.
But He is the light, as ye have seen in thine experience--yea in thine experiences
through the earth ye, too, have seen the light and lost thy way. And even as He put on
flesh that He, too, might know the ways of the flesh, of the desires, of the urges that
have wrought in the experiences of men that blindness of self-glory, self-indulgence or
self-aggrandizement that has led many astray, even with the forces of Divine at times
working through them.
