I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, saith the Lord, which is, and which was, and which is to come, the Almighty.

Revelation 1:8

But verily thou art not able to behold Me with these thine eyes; the divine eye I give unto thee.

The Bhagavad-Gita

There is but one Brahma which is Truth’s Self.  It is from ignorance of that One that the god-heads have been conceived to be diverse.  Mahabharata 

Spirit as Absolute Cause is the beginning and end of everything.  If we place complete reliance upon this Spirit as being the adequate Cause, then we may as certainly place complete reliance upon It as producing the desired effect.  When we give a spiritual mind treatment we are using this Absolute Cause, which is the Alpha.  From it automatically proceeds the effect, which is the Omega.  Thus the treatment contains the potential possibility of its own answer.  Jesus said, “The words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life.”  He knew that because he consciously dealt with first Cause, there would be no question about the effect.  Our lesson says that a lack of the realization that there is but one final Power, has given rise to the belief in many gods.  Some of these gods we call evil, lack, want, limitation, pain, death.  These false gods must be deserted for there is but One, which is Truth’s Self.  We are told that while we cannot behold the invisible Presence with these physical eyes, “The divine eye I give unto thee.”  This has an identical meaning with the saying of Jesus, that spiritual things must be spiritually discerned.

I have a spiritual vision within me which beholds a perfect universe.  Daily this vision guides me to success, happiness, prosperity, physical and mental well-being.  My spiritual vision is open – I am awake to the greater possibility.
