God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.

John 4:24

I the Father of this universe, the Mother, the Supporter, the Grandsire, the Holy One to be known, the Word of Power.

The Bhagavad-Gita

The Tao produced One; One produced Two; Two produced Three; Three produced All things.

The Tao Teh King. Part I

Our lesson tells us that God is the Father, the Mother, the Supporter, and Grandsire.  It tells us that from the Oneness of God proceeds the Law, the Essence and the Word.  Then it tells us that God is spirit.  Wonderful indeed is this conception of the union of all life, which Jesus proclaimed in the ecstasy of his illumination.  “I and the Father are one.”  All cause and all effect proceed from the invisible Spirit.  Man is one with this Spirit and cannot be separated from It.  His word has power because his word is the action of God through his thought.  Power is, we use it, we do not create it.  Let us seek to use the power of this word more generously, with a greater idea of its beneficence, its abundance and its availability.  When we learn to believe, then our belief is increased.  Receiving much, we shall receive more; giving everything, we shall, in return, receive all.  Let us be willing to die to the lesser in order to become resurrected into the greater.  This is the true meaning of the thought that we let go of ignorance if we would gain knowledge; we must stop walking in darkness if we would talk in the light.

Today I walk in the light of God’s Love.  Today I am guided and my guidance is multiplied.  I know exactly what to do; exactly how to do it.  There is an inspiration within me which governs every act, every thought, in certainty, with conviction and peace.
