I DWELL IN THE HOUSEHOLD OF GOD
In my father’s house are many rooms; if it were not so, I would have told you.
The Household of God is the Household of Perfection. It is the Secret Place of the Most High. The inmates of this Household are all Divine Beings. Nothing can enter the consciousness of any of these inmates which contradicts the unity of Good. Each and every member of this Household is at peace with all other members. There is a community of peace, of understanding, of fellowship, of love and unity.
In this Household of God – which is any man’s household who declares to be such – there is no bickering, no jealousy, and no avenue through which any littleness or meanness may operate. It is not only a household of peace, it is a household of joy, it is a place of happiness and general contentment. Here is warmth, color and beauty. This earthly household symbolizes the Divine Harmony of the Kingdom of God.
No one is a stranger within this household. Nothing is alien to it. It is protected from all fear, from every sense of loss. Nothing can enter it but joy, integrity and friendship. The same good I realize belongs to everyone else. I do not desire a good for myself which is greater than the good I desire for all people. Neither do I deny myself the good I affirm for all others. In this Household, the Host is God, the Living Spirit Almighty, and all who dwell in this Household are guests of the Eternal Host.
