To know the truth, that we are one with the Whole or Holy Spirit, is to know that we are one with all goodness; not to deny, negate, nor refuse in any way to accept this all-inclusive truth, but to affirm it in thought, word and act, is the great work which lies before us. Affirmation brings realisation, for it is the word of truth and life; it is the pinnacle of absolute consciousness, above temptation and sense delusion, and reveals to us that we are superior to time, place and circumstance.
They who realise this truth, are caused to turn from darkness to light, from the seeming to the real, from dis-ease to ease, from fear and its torments, to love and its bliss, from unkindness to justice, from doubt to faith, from false belief to knowledge, from the tempter to God, in which and by which all live: "THE BREAD OF LIFE"
The first work to be done preparatory to correct interpretation, is to erase false belief; by means of this primary work, consciousness is realised that you are superior to all effects, or to the visible universe. Through right habit of thought, sensation, word and deed, the effect of thought becomes harmonious, and we realise peace, in earth, the body, as it in heaven - Spirit.
If you find that through force or habit, so called, you are thinking and reasoning in favor or the belief in sin, sickness, death, envy, prejudice, hate, etc, do not feel discouraged, but deny and erase that line of thought by thinking, speaking, and manifesting their opposite. Think and manifest salvation, and not sin; health, not sickness'; life, not death; justice, not envy; love, not prejudice; truth, not hate - by so doing you serve God, Goodness, and make desirable conditions. The science of God is also the science of Goodness, the law of which is love.
"Whatsover a man soweth, that shall he reap". His habit of thought is expressed in the body; he reaps in manifestation what he by thoughts sows in mentality; the present thought will bear its fruit in due seaon. They who would be free from error, must be willing that error should pass from their mental vision; must be willing not to believe in error, then maintain that position, and think no error.
The lesson of letting go, is an important one to understand. To get understanding is to let go of error.
Some persons say they fear to let go of the belief on the reality of sin, sickness and death, for fear that they may come upon them, and for this reason they are afraid not to fear. It is written, "God hath not given you the spirit of fear," with its torments. He has given you the spirit of perfect love with its bliss, which when recognised, obeyed, and manifest, casteth out fear.
When we abide in that truth which God hath given us, we give up false beliefs in fear, for His love and truth. He who manifested patience, divinely, while suffering, said, The things that I feared, have come upon me."
