I, in the midst of you, am He who spoke through what the world called Jesus. It is always I, and when I speak through you, then I speak words of authority that you can trust. If the words that you hear are not the words of I in the midst of you, there is no authority; and you will be following false prophets. And so it’s important now in this parable,… Read More

You’ll notice that, throughout the Bible, there is either man under the dominion of the forces of the world or one who comes out of the forces of the world and takes dominion over them. To bring it into our contemporary life, we might say that we either will be controlled by our environment, or it will control us. We know, of course, that in the main we are controlled by our… Read More

“He riseth from supper, and laid aside his garments; and took a towel, and girded himself. After that he poureth water into a basin, and began to wash the disciples’ feet, and to wipe them with the towel wherewith he was girded. Then cometh he to Simon Peter: and Peter saith unto him, Lord, dost thou wash my feet? Jesus answered and said unto him, What I do thou knowest not now;… Read More

I want to address this first question to every woman who is present. I want you to imagine, for the moment, that you are a thirteen year old girl called Mary and that the angel Gabriel has come to you in the Silence, advising you of this blessed event.

We read the words, “Before Abraham was, I am,” and we know that the man, Jesus, was not before Abraham, and therefore “I am” takes a great significance. We also learned that “I am the way,” and that increases the significance of I. But still lifting I, being raised to the level of that I which was before Abraham, even though it be the Way, is still a very dark way for… Read More

Third chapter will be next week of Contemplative [Life], and if you want to read ahead, we’re going to do the fourth chapter the week after, and that is called “The week before Easter.” It just happens to dovetail very nicely. The third chapter is next week, but we’re going to have to do a pretty thorough grounding next week on the marriage of Mary and Joseph. No matter what happens today,… Read More

We’re going to see today if we can prepare ourselves for the God experience by releasing some of the concepts that have been standing in the way. Some of these concepts we don’t even know we have, but we accept the world concepts unknowingly; and then, lo and behold, our lives are showing forth some kind of discord, and we know we’ve been good, we’ve been dedicated, we’ve been loving and devoted….
