It is time that you learn that you live within a cosmic electronic vacuum tube of invisibility as Mental Beings who project actions from that vacuum condition to manifest your creative desires.
Look within a television vacuum tube for a moment. All you can see there are flashes of light which COME and GO. They COME only because of a Mind-desire to manifest invisible IDEA into visible form. They GO when the invisible IDEA has been expressed and the desire for further expression ceases for a while.
Ask yourself this question: Will those light flashes remain in that tube unless forced to remain there by a power outside of their own light, or have they the power within themselves to hold their units together?
You have but one answer. Those light flashes have been created to manifest Mind-Idea in action. They have no energy of their own. They will cease when Mind ceases to desire manifestation by action. What has happened within that vacuum? Mind-thinking has been visibly embodied. That is all that has happened. That is all that CREATION IS. That is all that GRAVITY IS. That is all that light-waves ARE. And that is all that they DO.
Let us carry the example of that electronic tube a bit farther. Consider that tube as a miniature replica of the Cosmic Vacuum ZERO of the Creator’s Mind. Now consider it YOUR MIND. Follow that up by realizing that there is no light in the tube because you are not recording your thought-images in it. That is the only reason. The moment you connect the power of your thinking to that vacuum, it immediately begins to record your thoughts in light flashes which come and go as the light flashes of suns and stars of the cosmic vacuum come and go, like flashes of fireflies in the meadows.
If you will but think this through in your quiet hours of innersensory perception, you will then fully comprehend that the light of motion, which matter is, has but one desire—to escape from the bondage of compression which keeps it forever moving to record idea instead of resting within Idea. It accomplishes this by regiving to ZERO that which Zero has given to it.
Every particle of matter in the universe, from microcosmic particle to giant sun, desires to explode. The only way it can explode is to generate enough heat within it to explode instantly or to decay slowly. Newton’s law of attraction has no place in Nature.
The only thing which prevents the continual multiplication of heat is the uncreated cold of the omnipresent vacuum which not only surrounds it but interpenetrates its every part. Cold freezes matter in space to keep it from exploding, just as cold freezes matter in your deep-freeze to keep it from decaying.
Every particle of matter in the universe retains its appearance as a gas, liquid or solid only because it is frozen into the ice of itself. A vast mass of absolute zero cold freezes your sun into its density and keeps it from exploding. Some suns generate heat beyond their melting points and explode as novas, but some of them are conquered by cold before they expand beyond the limits of their heat exhaustion. They are then subdued for a while until they generate enough heat to try it again. This happens many times to many stars before they become permanently subdued. Many, however, explode and disappear.
Compression alone creates density, but compression also creates the heat of resistance to tensions. Vacuous cold takes the heat away, however, and leaves only the ice of that substance. Iron, for example, is so closely compressed that it can generate 1500 degrees of heat resistance to that compression before the eternal cold subdues it. It desires to explode, however, and will do so if you will help it by supplying 1800 degrees of heat from an acetylene torch.
Everything on your planet will also explode if it can generate enough heat to do so. It has always been trying to do this through the internal fires of compression-resistance which sometimes reach the surface of the Earth through volcanoes.
The Earth is now so far away from the heat of the sun that cold has quite completely conquered it, but man is now attempting to create conditions which might make it possible to explode.
A full realization of the fact that matter is not held together by nucleal attractive action from within, and knowledge that your Earth is held together only by freezing a crust of stone around its internal heat, should deter humans from helping Earth to explode as a whole, as it is continually exploding in every little part which you call growth. I mean by this, that when a small particle generates enough heat to explode, the cold of its environment freezes it and causes it to refold into a cell of matter. Gradually those cells take on patterns as tens of thousands of forms of animal and vegetable life appear. That is the way things grow, and the only way they die is that they are enabled to generate more heat than their environment of cold is capable of freezing.
Living bodies are produced by compression. Dying bodies are liberated by expansion.
This entire process is a photosynthetic one. Growth is a synthesis of light particles and the patterns of growing things are photographic records of each pulsation of growth.
So what does this do to the theory of ones coming to your planet who revitalize through photosynthesis? Yes, it IS interesting, isn’t it? All things grow as a synthesis of light particles and the patterns are photographic records. You believe you need food, etc., to live and grow—no, you are sensual by nature and desire, and food is pleasure of flesh indulgence. Some 98% of what you need can be gleaned very nicely from the air you breathe—you have simply forgotten as much.
The next logical step in the unfolding of this information is covered in MURDER BY ATOMIC SUICIDE right in the Introduction. I trust you will all refer back to that as a refresher for it is indeed important.
Now, before we move on to the next subject, which will be regarded as the Science of the Cosmos, we will respond to a few questions which relate to the Science of Man and then we will move on with the next subject material.
PRAYER AND MISCONCEPTION
Almost every prayer which carries with it a request also carries with it the inference that God is overlooking something in the management of his universe and needs a reminder that things are not running smoothly enough to suit the petitioner. Also, they carry the inference that requests are asked as personal favors from reverent and devout believers who believe that such favors will be granted if enough devout and reverent people join the weight of their petitions together to be heard by God and His interest in their personal requests is sufficiently aroused. God is not hard of hearing and He is right there within, so what are you actually doing? Such prayers carry an inference of intercession in someone’s interest—as though intercession is necessary with God—or would have any effect whatsoever upon Him. They also carry an inference that God is a personal being, like a king on a throne, to whom petitions are submitted and favors asked upon a personal basis.
To those we say that God does His part always and needs no reminder. His part of Creation is Perfect. His law is perfect. HIS LAW ALWAYS WORKS.
You need not ask God to make His law of gravitation work. Neither will He set it aside if you ask Him to do so. If you fall off a cliff, the law of gravitation will cause your death whether you are saint or sinner and no prayer will set that aside. God will tell you not to fall. He has told you that in your very seed but if you disobey, you will perish just like anyone else. CAN GOD OVERRIDE THOSE LAWS? YES. WOULD HE! NO, NOT VERY OFTEN—BUT HE MIGHT WELL OVERRIDE SOME OF YOUR ANTICS AND IN THOSE CASES THEY WOULD APPEAR TO BE MIRACLES.
God’s whole universe is in perfect balance. He keeps it so. You may depend upon it always. If you want good crops, God’s law is there to give them to you IF YOU WORK WITH HIS LAW. But if you ask God to do your part of the work as well as His, you will harvest nothing no matter how great is your faith.
A farmer does not ask God to cure a potato blight. He searches for the cause of it, which may be his own lack of knowledge of the particular soil. When, however, a blight strikes men’s own bodies, they vigorously condemn anyone who suggests that they do what the farmer does who works knowingly with God, doing his part of the work together with God’s part of it.
What was the cause of the potato blight? Was it too much moisture?
What was the cause of the human body blight? Was it tight lacings generations ago? Wrong diet? Unbalanced emotional disturbances? Frustrations? Infection from a rusty nail? Distorted seed pattern of ancestors’ unbalanced actions?
No matter what the cause of any disintegrating or depolarizing effect, the remedy for it is to restore balance. The restoration of balance in any machine can be accomplished through action . It is just as reasonable for one to expect God to repair his typewriter because of his faith and belief as it is to expect Him to repair a human machine which man has damaged.
The restoration of balance through any mental unbalanced condition is purely mental. A change of thought from negative to positive will cure any mental ailment. A physically unbalanced body condition requires a physical action to restore its balance and this can actually only be truly accomplished through first balancing the Mind.
Mind-healing has no relation to faith and belief, in actuality. It is purely CAUSE and EFFECT working in accordance with God’s established law. It is desire for a right condition followed by intelligent action to restore that condition. Purely physical abnormalities, whether a broken bone, a cancer, a cut upon the head, a gunshot wound, paralysis from blood clots on the brain, misshapen bodies or other deformities can be “cured” only by physical action. One might just as well ask God in all faith and belief to mend a broken spoke in an automobile wheel as to ask Him to cure a deformed foot without intelligent action.
Can God do it? Yes! However, if it be your foot and it is malformed—why would He override your input? If you wish it healed (if in fact you perceive it in need of “healing”) you will do it yourself through the proper physical attention (although the physical action may very well be totally mental in projection). For instance, if one has indigestion from drinking martinis—would it not be wise to stop the martinis? If you have so little care as to healing of self then it is assumed that the misery is enjoyed for some unrecognized reason and when the person is ready to release the illness—he will do so.
CAUSE AND EFFECT
Creation is a play of CAUSE and EFFECT. The CAUSE is undivided. CAUSE is always balanced. It is always ONE.
EFFECT is divided. Instead of one balanced condition, it is a division into two unbalanced conditions.
The play of life is to keep the two unbalanced conditions of EFFECT in balance with each other. When CAUSE and EFFECT are in balance with each other, the spiritual and physical manifestations of either man or nature manifest harmony, unity, growth and normalcy in all parts. It is impossible to keep one’s body in perfect balance always. To say that God made man’s body perfect, as well as man, does not mean that man can keep his body from being damaged. He must go to a dentist when his teeth wear out, or to an oculist when his eyes grow old—or put up with the inconveniences for the avoidance.
It is inconsistent for one to believe that God will set a broken bone and, therefore, refuse a surgeon’s help, but will go to a dentist to have his teeth filled.
God’s law of CAUSE and EFFECT always works. When anything goes wrong with you, or with civilization, it is you who are at fault, not God. If men steal from each other for ages, they harvest hate and fear which culminate in wars. The seeds of fear, hate and greed will not yield harvests of love, prosperity, happiness and peace.
Men pray to ask God to protect them from their enemies, instead of praying to ask God to so enlighten them that men can practice the love principle in their human relations and, thereby, not make enemies. As long as man continues to violate God’s law, he will hurt himself. All the faith and belief in the world will not alter the effect of any cause whatsoever. Try it. Try putting your finger on a red hot stove while praying reverently with full faith and belief that God will cancel the law as a favor to you—and see what happens. Your finger will burn!
Can you override that result? Yes, but it requires preparation of the body responses in direct effect of orders from the Mind to make those changes—I see almost none who can successfully do this. To walk across a bed of coals, say, is not proving much of anything but is fooling the people around you as well as yourself. If mentally prepared properly, the Mind can cause the body to react in directed conditioning—but this takes a lot of attention and work.
Therefore, we again say to you that when you ask God for anything, never ask Him to fulfill His part, for He has already done that, but ask Him, rather, to show you what you should do to fulfill your portion. Everything that is wrong with you is of your own making; therefore, ask that you be enlightened. Perhaps it will be as simple as putting an asbestos finger mitten on before touching the hot stove! The answer will always be quite simple and always most reasonable.
Let us say, for example, you want a roof for your church or perhaps, as with Little Crow, the gathering office needs paint—and your people pray in full faith and belief that God will give it to you and you then rely solely upon your prayer, your church will not get a roof and the walls will not be covered with new paint. If, however, you ask God to give you knowledge to guide your actions in giving service for regiving of money for the roof and/or the paint and to have someone splash the paint on the walls, your knowledge will find the way to accomplish both. In Little Crow’s instance, he simply asks his gathering for contributions. If that does not do it then he will have to decide how badly he needs new paint—and leave it alone or do it himself—do you get the point? This is the law and you will as surely have your desire fulfilled as the farmer’s desire is fulfilled when he does his part by tilling the soil and planting seed.
That is what I mean by the prayers of men who tell God what they wish Him to do instead of asking God to tell them what they should do. How many times do you think of something only to put it aside and later say, “I thought of that but didn’t do it.” You have to listen when God tells you for it will always be through IDEA.
This is the great misconception of the power of prayer. The cause of that misconception lies in the fact that people who ask God for fulfillment of their desires forget that requests for material things are created only through two-way action. Material things are not created by rubbing an Aladdin lamp or through wishful thinking. They are created through balanced action and reaction.
Let us put a hard example on this. Say now that certain guns and rifles need registration and you have one but have not registered it. It lays atop the gun case. Now you can pray until you drop dead to have God remove that gun and place it in security and you are going to become arrested at some point for having the gun. You know what to do with that weapon and if you want something done with it you better get at it. God will allow you to be incarcerated if that is the penalty to allow you to know the difference. He will warn you in time if you have asked for guidance—but YOU WILL DO IT. This is a good lesson for today for many of you are going to be caught in this plight as gun controls come down on your nation. If you are one with one of these banned guns—here is your warning—GET IT TENDED! GO WITHIN AND ASK FOR GUIDANCE AS TO WHAT TO DO AND LISTEN FOR THE ANSWER—THEN ACT. IF YOU DON’T WANT TO GET RID OF THE EQUIPMENT THEN YOU HAD BETTER TEND OF IT SOMEWAY. SURPRISE SEARCH AND SEIZURES ARE GOING TO BEGIN AT ANY MOMENT! THEREFORE, IF YOU ARE NAGGED BY MALCONTENT OVER THE TENDING OF IT—DON’T TEASE AND QUIP ABOUT IT—TEND IT!
When a mechanic fixes your broken car through KNOWLEDGE of its workings, or a surgeon fixes your broken body through KNOWLEDGE of its workings, those operations are as much Mind-healings as the elimination of toxic poisons from your body by thoughts of love is a Mind-healing.
ALL CREATIONS ARE MIND CREATIONS.
ALL MIND CREATIONS HAVE BODIES FORMED IN THE IMAGES OF MIND-THOUGHTS.
ALL BODIES ARE CREATED PERFECT BY CONFORMITY WITH LAW AND MADE ILL BY BREACH OF LAW AT SOME POINT IN YOUR LIFE-STREAM.
WHAT MAN FORGETS WHEN HE PRAYS
When man fervently asks God to fulfill desires, he forgets that he is asking God to do what he, himself, should do. God’s part has already been done.
Man asks God to stop wars, forgetting that wars are man-made, not God-made. They are a breach of God’s law. Wars are effects of the disunity, greed and selfishness of man. Man has free will to manifest the spirit in him, or his senses, as he wills. It is all a part of the Play of Cause and Effect. The play must go on until man learns by experience that he must some day manifest the love principle upon which the universe is founded.
FAITH WILL NOT DO YOUR WORK
Sorry about this, but you know that the fulfillment of any desire, whatsoever, comes only through intelligent action. You guide your car through busy streets by intelligent action, not by faith or belief unsupported by knowledge of the right actions which are necessary to take.
Faith and belief are wonderfully consoling for a wishful thinker who is willing to believe in miraculous happenings or who is quite ready to evade effort on his part, but it should be erased from the lexicon of those who desire to achieve or to acquire anything. This is why those who tout that it is fine to just “BE” are lying to you and to themselves for “just being” entails that someone do for them, that which are considered NEEDS. If all in the same group are “just being” and sitting on their duffs “wishing”, not a thing will get done except you will get hungry and have to go to the bathroom.
God creates what He KNOWS by thinking it into divided forms. Man should do likewise, but he must first KNOW that which he desires to think into form.
You may have faith, belief and also HOPE in regard to others but not in God. You must KNOW that God will give you your desire if you WORK WITH HIM to fulfill it but not otherwise. Others may have to justify your faith and belief in them but God should NEVER have to prove Himself to you.
If you ask a builder to build a house for you, you KNOW that he can do it and, also, he knows that he can do it—or you will choose another builder. If he answered your inquiry as to whether he could build a house for you by saying, “I sure hope I can” or, “Well, I have faith and belief that I probably can,” your own faith in him would be tinged with deep doubts, for your very belief in him is founded on confidence in his knowledge or you wouldn’t have contacted him in the first place.
YOU MUST HAVE CONFIDENCE IN YOURSELFbased upon your KNOWLEDGE for knowledge is your power; not faith, belief or hope. Those are but the stepping stones to come into KNOWING THROUGH ACTION.
Therefore, I say to you, whenever you desire to do anything for which you do not feel yourself equipped, do not start doing it with doubt in your Mind or with blindfaith that God WILL DO IT FOR YOU, FOR YOU MUST NOT BEGIN THAT WAY.
Stop, rather, and talk WITH God. “Seek Him, know Him, be Him,” in deep meditation communion. Seek knowledge through INSPIRATION. That is the only way to build omnipotence into your desire. Never start anything without inspired knowledge which puts love into your givings—for that which is called WORK should be only joyous giving.
Your weakness lies in asking God to fulfill your desire instead of asking Him to give you the knowledge to work WITH Him in the fulfilling of your desire. You render yourself weak in so asking—and you double your weakness by the very thought of having “faith in God”. You must have KNOWING in God. Somehow, by just having “faith in God” implies a doubt of the certainty of His promise, and places God on His honor to grant you your request. He already granted you your request through His grace—all you have to do is accept the gift and regive by achievement. You must learn to approach any achievement with an attitude of certainty for, when you have instilled the certainty of the goal accomplished, the God within will provide the “how” in the form of inspired IDEA—you add the action.
Don’t approach God—or your Self—in an attitude of begging supplication. You are not asking benevolence—nor is God dealing out patronage. God is Creator—and you are co-Creator—not a supplicant for favors.
You must put aside your idea of separateness and find your universality. Until you KNOW your attachment with the universe, you are but one part of it. As long as you feel yourself to be a separate individual person with no attachment, you will think of God as totally separate and apart from your Self. Until you can think of your Self as The Person, or the Universal Self, God will be another Being Whom you may revere or worship, or ask favors from, or depend upon, in the measure of your KNOWLEDGE OF GOD.
To have faith—or belief—in God implies separateness. It implies that God is another of Whom you cannot say, “I and My Father are ONE.” That is why much deep communion with God is the most important thing in your life, for the more you lose yourself in the Universal Self the more you think of God and your Self as being of ONENESS.
When you plant corn, you do it with KNOWLEDGE born of experience that the corn will grow and fill your granaries. It does not grow because you have faith and belief that it will grow; it grows because of the perfect workings of God’s Laws. Likewise, you put the seed in the ground by intelligent action—first making sure you begin with corn seeds. You do not sit in the house and pray to God with faith and belief that He will plant it for you, for you KNOW that He will not. God will work WITH you but not FOR you, and all of the faith and belief in the world will not give you a crop without your doing your part with God in the fulfillment of your desire.
Let us look at the faith and belief that just believing on “Jesus’” death will save you and that you will be raptured away just for that believing. NO. You will not go anywhere unless you take action and do the things instructed for you to do in order to be suitable for the passage—REMEMBER? IT IS TIME YOU ALL REMEMBER YOUR SUNDAY LESSONS—”EXCEPT THROUGH ME SHALL YE ENTER INTO THE KINGDOM OF MY FATHER!” And who was this bold speaker? He was the “Christed” teacher, which means “the perfection of God” and therefore, HE IS THE WORD, THE LIFE AND THE WAY. EXCEPT YOU ACT WITHIN THE LAWS OF GOD WHICH HE IS, YE SHALL NOT ENTER IN. Just remembering the half of the lessons which you enjoy hearing and require nothing of your physical being—you seem to have selective hearing and much more selective actions. You want to practice all the fleshly physical “things” without responsibility and then dump the load on a poor, unsuspecting scapegoat. It shall not come to be! “For except through the actions within the LAW shall ye enter in!” Moreover, you won’t even get on board a silver craft with that attitude for the Cosmic Brotherhood live within the LAWS and ye who do not and deny them—are not welcome within to foul their order and balance.
Forests rise, corn grows in their majesty, vapors rise and storms rend without faith and belief, or even without knowledge—they follow the natural laws of the universe. God’s Law is being fulfilled in them. God’s Law is also being fulfilled in you. You may break your leg and God’s Law will heal it just as God’s Law grows the corn. But if you ask God to do more for you than fulfill His law—in other words, if you ask Him to do something for you which is YOUR part of it—He will not do it, no matter how much you pray and no matter how much faith and belief you put into your prayers.
To exemplify our meaning a bit farther, suppose your broken leg is badly twisted out of line, or the bones pass each other, and you ask God to reset the bones which you, yourself, should do or have done by a surgeon who KNOWS. You will find that God will do His part by making His universal Law work for you, but your twisted leg will be the evidence of your own neglect to do your part of the work that God is doing with you, and you will be a cripple for life, a self-made cripple self-destined to suffer from your own disobedience to God’s perfect Law.
And therein lies most of the confusion regarding faith healing. God’s Laws of growth are absolute. They work automatically and they work whether you pray or do not pray. Conversely, God’s Laws of decay and disintegration are just as absolute as His Laws of construction, and all the prayers which ask God to set aside His Laws as a special favor to you are more than wasted.
Again, another example. A destructive fungus develops in a farmer’s corn field. The farmer does not go to his chamber to pray with full faith and belief that God will cure that blight while he sits by his fireside and does not do his part in working with God to reverse the destructive effect. Nor does he reason with God by making such useless affirmations as: “God made the corn perfect. Therefore, there is no imperfection in it because there is no imperfection in God.”
The farmer knows that he must do HIS part in checking the destructive growth WITH God’s help—which means with the CERTAIN KNOWLEDGE that God’s unalterable Laws will always work, so he corrects the faulty, damp, under-nourished soil which was the CAUSE of the fungus and God’s constructive Laws restore normalcy. Moreover, if there was a cure for the corn blight and the farmer refused to utilize it while he kept only praying—you would call him a fool and say that he certainly deserved to lose his crop.
The farmer knows that he must do his part in checking the destructive growth or he shall simply have no crop.
If you would not expect a farmer to heal his corn disease by faith and belief only in prayer to God, why expect it of humans? Yet a blight does develop in a human—a blight such as cancer, tumors, wasted lungs, or any of the many things that can happen to any material growing body which came out of the ground through the constructive forces of Nature and must return to the ground through the destructive forces which are always waiting to do their part in Nature’s work the instant they are called upon to do their part. Many humans would not ask God to cure a corn blight nor condemn a farmer for curing it himself, but when they find that a blight has struck their own body, they pray that God will set aside His inexorable Laws because of their great faith in Him instead of doing what the farmer does by working WITH God.
Those who believe this way make certain affirmations upon which they base their beliefs regarding humans as being quite different from laws governing corn or potatoes. Those believers say with much reverence: “God made man perfect. Therefore there can be no imperfection. If you will but see yourself perfect, you will then be perfect.”
The great fallacy of such a belief lies in the fact that man’s body is not man. Man is Mind—an idea of Mind, an idea with a spiritual entity. That is what God made perfect—and it is quite true that there can be no imperfection in the spiritual, eternal man.
But it is not the perfect spiritual man that has a cancer or tumor. It is man’s body WHICH HAS THE CANCER OR TUMOR. AND IT IS MAN’S BODY WHICH IS FOLLOWING THE INEXORABLE LAWS OF CAUSE AND EFFECT WHICH CONSTRUCT AND DESTROY ALL BODIES SEQUENTIALLY. So, the Mind must be allowed in its own KNOWING and BALANCE to create that balance which allows the BODY TO BE HEALED. It is not “faith” healing—IT IS SELF-KNOWING REBALANCING.
PERFECTION OF GOD’S LAW
God made His Law perfect. Perfection of God’s Law means perfection of balance between two opposite forces, the force which builds bodies and the force which destroys them. God made BOTH these forces and they are inexorable and unalterable in their workings. God made the divided universe and the laws which govern it are perfect.
But God gave man KNOWLEDGE of how to control those forces by putting his knowledge into action. The forces of Nature and the construction of bodies cannot be controlled by wishful thinking. Do you think it wise to sit in front of an onrushing train and wish it would stopwhen all you have to do is get up and step out of the way? The divided universe of bodies, which come from the earth and go back into the earth, is one of action—not inaction and wishful thinking.
The next time someone taunts you with, “Why don’t you let God heal that”, if you have cut your finger and ask for antiseptic to cleanse the wound—ask him why he doesn’t let God eat, wash and toilet for him? Why would you ask your guides, your teachers and/or God to do that which you know full well what to do to tend?
Funny thing—all along the way YOU have helped God to make your body. God did his part perfectly for God has all-knowledge and works in harmony with His Law, while you do your part imperfectly because of your perceived limited knowledge of and obedience to the law, such as eating good food and observing the laws of cleanliness and exercise. If you eat poison food you will poison your body—why blame God?
BODIES BELONG TO THE DIVIDED UNIVERSE OF
If you put decaying or poisonous food into your growing body and then ask God in full faith and belief to set His Law aside for you, you are but expressing ignorance of God’s way of working with you instead of knowledge of your co-Creatorship with God. You do not realize that you are asking God to reverse His Law and make the destructive force which you have put into your body become a constructive force. What you should do is KNOW that you are in a predicament and you had best ask for inspiration and IDEA as to how to tend the matter and then you will get your guidance to either put the poison out, have an antidote, send your body’s own resources or something useful and you really should do it right away.
PERFECTION IS EVERYWHERE
There is no imperfection. If something is not to your liking then you are left with but one action—do something to make it otherwise. The only thing you can do is work with God intelligently through action, just as God works with Nature through intelligent action.
The Law is always perfect, however, and imperfect bodies are a breech of Law.
A smallpox or typhoid epidemic cannot be stopped by all the prayers of all the world so long as man continues to build smallpox or typhoid into his own body through ignorance of the Law which he is breaking. Instead of praying to God to stop the epidemic, man should pray for KNOWLEDGE of how to work with God in the elimination of it just as he prayed and worked for the elimination of smallpox. It was not faith and belief which conquered smallpox—nor will it stop the new strains deliberately developed by other men to reinfect you with more virulent smallpox.
INCONSISTENCIES OF NON-THINKING PEOPLE
Many who believe in healing by prayer alone without working with God through intelligent action vehemently condemn calling in a doctor or surgeon in cases where a purely mechanical action is needed to save a life, for instance, in childbirth where both child and mother die because of lack of a purely mechanical change of position of the borning child which otherwise could not be birthed.
Refusal to make use of the knowledge of one to whom God has given such knowledge is as much a commission of murder by the one who refuses as though he killed the mother and child with a revolver.
The same with seatbelts which go unworn. If you do not use the IDEAS God gives for your security—then why blame God if your car crashes and you are maimed? There are some things which can only come from higher resource but mostly humans simply ignore those things which are made available through their refusal to act WITH God.
If you encounter ones who refuse surgery and transfusions because God will heal or take according to His choice—I have a question for you to ask. “Would you recommend that a hundred surgeons and doctors be withdrawn from the battle fields and replaced with men of your belief to save the lives of men whose legs have been shot off, skulls crushed and bones exposed to view, men who are bleeding to death from terrible wounds or burns where flesh is half gone from the body? (Preferably ask one who is ON HIS WAY TO THE BATTLEFIELD!) Why would you not utilize the wondrous KNOWLEDGE which God has shared with the human to gain skills in medical treatment? It is much as with Ascension instead of working and acting to change the path of destruction—HOW MANY PEOPLE HAVE YOU SEEN ASCEND?????
If you feel everything should be ignored and left to some God somewhere out there—then you know nothing of the very basic principle of Creation and have no idea who and what is God.
GOD MAKES ALL THINGS PURPOSEFULLY. THEY MUST FULFILL THEIR PURPOSE. WHEN THEY HAVE FULFILLED IT, OR HAVE RENDERED THEIR BODIES INCAPABLE OF FULFILLING IT, GOD’S LAW RETURNS THE BODY TO THE STILLNESS FROM WHICH IT CAME.
THOSE WHO AFFIRM THAT GOD MADE MAN PERFECT—MEANING THE BODY OF MAN—DO NOT REALIZE THAT THE MAKING OF THE BODY OF MAN COVERS A PERIOD OF MILLIONS OF YEARS. The man of the jungle, of the Stone Age, the Neanderthal man, or the man of the Carboniferous Age, is as unalike as the forest of today. At which one of these many stages was man perfect?
If God made man of today perfect, could we not also say that the Neanderthal man was perfect—or that the cosmic-illumined man of the future is also perfect—when neither one resembles the other either mentally or physically?
Dharma, the writing has been long this day and we cannot finish this subject without making the chapter too lengthy so allow us to close and I will finish before we change subject material. I need to consider, with you ones, the fact that bodies are chemical machines and I do not wish to rush through the discussion.
Thank you for your attention. Know that you ones are beloved of us, your brothers, and we are honored to serve.
